Kanye West repeatedly praises Hitler in bombshell Alex Jones interview

Kanye West has admitted that he “likes Hitler” during an interview between himself, Holocaust denier Alex Fuentes and right-wing broadcaster Alex Jones.

That sentence alone is enough to send shivers down your spine, with Kanye West continuing to double down on his string of anti-semitic statements of late. West appeared on the Infowars interview wearing a black face covering, and refuted Jones’ attempt to denounce Nazism. 

You’re not Hitler, you’re not a Nazi, so you don’t deserve to be demonised,” Jones told West. But the rapper didn’t take Jones’ lead, instead sympathising with the man responsible for killing 6 million Jewish people. “Well, I see good things about Hitler also,” West replied. “[Hitler] invented highways, invented the very microphone that I use as a musician, you can’t say out loud that this person ever did anything good and I am done with that.

Jones went on to tell West that he has a “Hitler fetish” after the rapper said, “every human being has something of value that they brought to the table, especially Hitler.” After claiming that Nazis “​​did good things too” and that “we’ve got to stop dissing [Nazis]”, West capped off his thoughts with a simple but shocking: “I like Hitler.”  It comes as West’s race for the White House drastically intensifies. 

Last month, the rapper confirmed his intention to run for president in 2024. The announcement was followed by West’s meeting with fellow presidential candidate Donald Trump, at the latter’s Mar-a-lago estate in Florida. West was joined at that visit by Fuentez, and used the meeting as the basis of his first political campaign videos posted to Twitter. 

The meeting was heavily criticised by Jewish allies, with the head of the Zionist Organisation of America, Morton Klein, saying it made him “become very frightened for my people.” West’s controversial behaviour can be traced back to his decision to wear a ‘White Lives Matter’ t-shirt at Paris Fashion Week in early October.

Since then, he’s had his social media channels banned, released a pornographic documentary, been the recipient of a request for $1 billion, shared explicit photos of his ex-wife Kim Kardashian and had his accounts frozen by the IRS due to a $50 million tax debt. The list could go on, but it’s Friday morning and no one wants to be burdened by all that damn chaos.
