The New York Post reported that Kanye West aroused controversy again this week after he praised Hitler and went on an antisemitic rant during an interview with podcast host Alex Jones.
West: “I see good things about Hitler”
West, who now goes by the name Ye, participated in the interview while wearing a black hood which obscured his face.
“I see good things about Hitler, also,” West declared. “Every human being has value that they brought to the table, especially Hitler.”
“I was thinking about Satan,” he continued, adding, “Whether it’s the Zionists or Hitler — it’s not the person. It’s Satan using the people, who are controlled by demonic forces.”
“The Jewish media has made us feel like the Nazis and Hitler have never offered anything of value to the world,” West insisted. “Meanwhile, there’s all of these things that are happening.”
Rapper mocks Israeli prime minister
At one point, West took out a small butterfly net and a bottle of Yoo-hoo in order to mock Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

“What you want, Netan?” West asked the butterfly net. He then used the object as a puppet while saying, “Hey Ye, right after this, I’m going to say you’re crazy. I’m going to take your family away from you.”
“We’re not done with you yet,” West went on, adding, “You cannot cause free thought. We have to control the history books. We have to control the banks, and we have to go and kill people.”
The Post noted that West also lashed out at Jewish conservative Ben Shapiro, saying, “Shapiro can tell just how much change is in your pocket from hearing a jingle.”
For his part, Jones pushed back against some of West’s antisemitism, saying, “I think most Jews are great people,” and, “I’m not on that whole Jew thing.”
West’s appearance on Jones’ show came less than a week after he walked out of an interview with podcaster Tim Pool.
