Rapper Kanye WestIncreasingly isolated after his recent anti-Semitic remarks, went a little deeper on Thursday when confessing his admiration for Hitler and the Nazis during an interview with a conspiratorial American presenter. During an ubiquitous appearance, the artist, who now calls himself Ye, wore a black balaclava covering his entire face. He launched into a tirade about sin, pornography and the devil. “I also see positive things about Hitler”said the rapper, on the set of far-right conspiratorialist Alex Jones’ “Infowars” show.

“The Nazis did good things”

“This guy (…) invented the highways, invented the microphone that I use as a musician. You can’t say publicly that this person did anything right, and I’m sick of it.”added Kanye West. The rapper, who claims to have bipolar disorder and recently suggested he could run for President of the United States in 2024, doubled down on the provocation, prompting shocked laughter from his host. “I’m tired of labels, every human being has brought something of value, especially Hitler”he insisted. “I love Hitler.”

“The Nazis were thugs and did very bad things”tried to correct him the presenter Alex Jones, recently condemned to pay nearly a billion dollars for having denied the reality of a massacre in a school. “But they did good things too”retorted the rapper. “We have to stop insulting the Nazis all the time. (…) I love the Nazis.” Stuck in a series of controversies, Kanye West has been dropped in recent weeks by the brands with which he collaborated. The sports equipment manufacturer Adidas notably cut ties with the rapper at the end of October because of remarks deemed anti-Semitic. The ready-to-wear chain Gap and the fashion house Balenciaga have also turned their backs on him.

In early October, the rapper displayed the slogan “White Lives Matter” during a parade in Paris., hijacking the name of the anti-racist movement “Black Lives Matter”. On set Thursday, he appeared alongside white supremacist Nick Fuentes, with whom he attended a highly controversial dinner this week with former US President Donald Trump. His remarks immediately sparked a deluge of condemnation from many personalities on social networks. In a statement, the Republican Jewish Coalition denounced Kanye West as a “vile and loathsome sectarian who targeted the Jewish community with threats and Nazi-like libel.” “Conservatives who made the mistake of tolerating Kanye West need to be clear that he is an outcast,” added this organization close to the Republican Party.
