On Thursday, Kanye West spoke to right-wing and conspiracy theorist radio host Alex Jones about his love of Hitler and more.
Kanye West’s presidential campaign is taking more off-kilter turns. On Thursday night, the Donda 2 artist, alongside white supremacist political commentator Nick Fuentes, spoke to right-wing radio host and Sandy Hook conspiracy theorist Alex Jones. During the Infowars interview, the artist formerly known as Kanye West praised Nazi Party leader and German dictator Adolf Hitler.
“Every human being has something of value that they brought to the table, especially Hitler,” Ye said. “Also Hitler was born Christian.”
“I see good things about Hitler,” he told Jones. “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 pushing with the pornography. But this guy [Hitler] that invented highways and invented the very microphone that I use as a musician, you can’t say out loud that this person ever did anything good.”
“I’m done with that,” Ye continued. “Every human being has something of value that they brought to the table, especially Hitler.”

When Jones said that he didn’t like Nazis” the show moved into a commercial break, but Ye interjected. “I like Hitler,” he said. Following the commercial, the Yeezy founder added that “we got to stop dissing the Nazis all the time.”
The Chicago raised artist has been making public antisemitic remarks since October. In a series of interviews, Instagram posts and tweets, he’s blasted the “Jewish media” for having an alleged agenda towards him, even threatening on Twitter to go “death con 3 [sic] on Jewish people.”
Fuentes has become a new partner to Ye, accompanying him on far-right podcast Timcast IRL. During the 20-minute interview, Ye stormed out, after the host spoke against his antisemitism.
