WASHINGTON (TND) — Rapper Kanye West said he likes Hitler and that he’s done with saying the Nazi leader never did anything good on an episode of Alex Jones’s Infowars Thursday.
You’re not Hitler, you’re not a Nazi, you don’t deserve to be called that and demonized,” Jones said to West.
Well... I see good things about Hitler also," West responded while wearing a black hood covering his face and black gloves concealing his hands. "The jew – I love everyone and Jewish people are not going to tell me, ‘You can love us, and you can love what we’re doing to you with the contracts, and you can love what we’re, you know, what we’re pushing with the pornography. But this guy that 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’m done with that."
I’m done with the classifications," West continued. "Every human being has something of value that they brought to the table, especially Hitler. How ‘bout that one?”
West, who also claimed to have practiced Chinese water torture on himself, added that Hitler “seems like a cool guy” and claimed it was untrue he killed 6 million Jewish people.
The Jewish media has made us feel like the Nazis and Hitler have never offered anything of value to the world,” West continued during the interview.
The rapper appeared during the interview alongside Nick Fuentes, a far-right commentator who has espoused similar anti-Jewish conspiracies.
Back in October, he went on a separate anti-Semitic tirade, blaming “the Jewish media” for many alleged misdeeds in an interview on RevoltTV’s “Drink Champs.”
Around the same time, West had also made headlines after posting a tweet that said he was “going death con 3 [sic] On JEWISH PEOPLE.”
“You guys have toyed with me and tried to black ball anyone whoever opposes your agenda,” West said in the same tweet, which was later removed by Twitter for violating its platform rules.
At one point during the Infowars interview, just before cutting to a commercial break, Jones went on a diatribe about double standards in America and West made yet another eyebrow-raising comment.
Schwarzenegger said he loved Hitler, they gave him an award. I’m just saying I don’t like Nazis and I don’t like what some of the mafia’s are doing either,” Jones said.
As the camera panned away for a commercial break, West interjected: “I like Hitler.”
West, who has a history of walking out of interviews and cutting them short, stayed on the Infowars show for a few hours. As the interview went on, West doubled down on his claims.
Germans had a really cool leader at one time,” West blurted out at one point when the conversation turned to German cars.
West also added that "Nazis are kinda cool" and that he thought "Hitler has a lot of redeeming qualities."
But, before the end of the show, Jones himself distanced himself from the claims, saying he thought dictators like Hitler and Stalin were "horrible" people.
