During an appearance on Alex Jones’ “Infowars” talk show, the controversial rapper lauded Hitler, and launched into a horrifying antisemitic tirade – that being one of the reasons brands like Adidas have dropped him.
Kanye “YE” West appears on Alex Jones’ Infowars
In conversation with Jones, West said that Hitler, like every other person, had worth to the world. He added that the Nazi founder has some positive qualities. Later on in the conversation, West made anti-Semitic comments against Benjamin Netanyahu, a former Israeli prime minister.

West took to Twitter after the interview to write: “I love the first amendment! Long live Ye! I pray to Jesus that Elon is for real…” – which has now been suspended by Twitter.
“Now it’s clear that not only is Kanye West a Nazi, but anyone who still supports him is,” wrote The Young Turks founder Cenk Uygur.
ALEX JONES: You’re not Hitler. You’re not a nazi. You don’t deserve to be described as that.
KANYE: I see good things about Hitler, also.

Ye has been the target of public outrage for weeks due to his repeated remarks against Jews and his bogus assertion that an elite Jewish power elite controls the media, Hollywood, and politics.
He claims that the actions cost him hundreds of millions of dollars. His comments have forced big corporations that had been long-time partners with his music, fashion line, and businesses to sever connections with him.
After Jones disputed some of Ye’s claims, stating, “I love Jewish people, but I also adore Nazis,” Ye said, “I do not like the word evil next to Nazis.”
In answer, Jones laughed and said, “Well, I have to disagree with that.”
Pusha T, a frequent collaborator of West’s, recently made a public statement criticizing the rapper. He described West’s recent string of promoting antisemitic remarks as “disappointing” – “As a Black man in America, there is no room for bigotry or hate speech. So yeah. It’s been very disappointing, let’s talk straight.”
