Kanye West says ‘I like Hitler’ in antisemitic rant on Alex Jones show

Kanye West attends the WSJ. Magazine 2019 Innovator Awards at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

Kanye West repeatedly praised Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler for doing “good things” in a shocking new antisemitic rant Thursday with far right-wing media host Alex Jones.

Inexplicably wearing a face mask over his entire head, the superstar rapper who last month met with former President Trump and white supremacist Nick Fuentes left little doubt how he feels about Jews.

“I see good things about Hitler,” West said on Jones’ “Infowars” show. “Jewish people are not going to tell me: ‘You can’t say out loud that this person ever did anything good.’ I’m done with that.”

“I like Hitler,” West added.

West, who goes by the name “Ye,” repeated the hateful canard that powerful Jews control the media, including the news and music industries.

“The Jewish media has made us feel like Nazis and Hitler have never offered us anything of value to the world,” West said.

The rapper mimicked Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu by whipping out a butterfly net — and launching a shameful new salvo of hateful rhetoric about Jews.

Using a high-pitched voice to imitate Netanyahu, West said, “We have to control the history books, we have to control the banks, we have to kiill people.”

The hatred spewed by West made Jones mostly sound reasonable in comparison, although the ight wing extremist smiled at his jokes and made some antisemitic remarks of his own.

“Most Jews are great people,” said Jones. “[But] I agree there’s a Jewish mafia.”

Trump did not immediately respond to the shocking new outburst by West, whom he claims as a friend.

The former president and Republican 2024 presidential candidate has refused to apologize for inviting West and Fuentes to a private dinner two nights before Thanksgiving at his Mar-a-Lago resort.

Trump claimed the dinner was fine because neither West nor Fuentes made any racist or antisemitic remarks to his face.
