Kanye West SHOCKS Alex Jones With New Praise For Hitler
Ye, the rapper formerly known as Kanye West, shocked even alt-right radio show host Alex Jones on Thursday, December 1.
Wearing a black mask and an oversized jacket, the “Donda” rapper appeared on InfoWars when he said “I like Hitler” and made the false claim that Hitler invented microphones.

In a one-minute-long clip uploaded to Twitter, many were shocked to hear Ye gush his praise for Hitler.
“I see good things about Hitler,” Ye says in the clip. “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 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,” he went on. “Every human being has something of value that they brought to the table, especially Hitler.”
Ye Admits 'I Like Hitler' In New Interview With Alex Jones
A German immigrant named Emilie Berliner was actually credited with first introducing the microphone in 1877. It’s unclear what Ye means by “highway” since roads were widely used throughout history, but the first fully funded road, known as the National Road, was built between 1811 and 1834 in the United States.
Fact-checking aside, the “Can’t Tell Me Nothing” rapper continued to praise Hitler later in the segment, flat-out admitting, “I like Hitler.” He also claimed that “the Jewish media has made us feel like Nazis and Hitler have never offered us anything of value to the world.”
Even Alex Jones seemed to push back at some of Ye’s comments, at one point saying, “I think most Jews are great people.” However, the prominent conspiracy theorist later sided with Ye, saying, “I agree there’s a Jewish mafia.”
Ye Calls Dave Chappelle A ‘Hack’ For Criticizing Him On ‘Saturday Night Live’
After tweeting that he was going “death con 3 on Jewish people” last month, Ye has garnered a significant amount of controversy. Comedian Dave Chappelle, who generated his own controversy for his Netflix special “The Closer,” discussed the incident when he hosted “Saturday Night Live.” It seems that Ye wasn’t a fan of his comments, calling him a “hack” for appearing on the “Jewish platform.”
He also called out Endeavor CEO Ari Emanuel and former Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel on the program. At another point in the shocking program, Ye claimed that he made antisemitism popular, saying, “No one in high school knew what antisemitic meant until Ye made it popular.”
Josh Gad: 'No one who says ‘I love Hitler’ should be allowed any oxygen on any social platform (period)'
It is unclear how his recent comments will affect his presidential run. The 45-year-old rapper revealed that he intends to run for President in 2024, even though his 2020 campaign only garnered approximately 70,000 votes.
Many celebrities quickly took to social media on Thursday as “Kanye” started trending. Voice actor Josh Gad tweeted, “It’s not what Kanye West says that scares me. It’s that he has 30 million followers who listen to his insanity on top of a cheerleader in the form of the current owner of this platform. No one who says ‘I love Hitler’ should be allowed any oxygen on any social platform (period).”
Writer Mark Harris tweeted, “The Kanye horrors are laughable but also terrifying. When pro-Nazi rhetoric gets this kind of repeated public airing, the discourse eventually edges into ‘Well that was awful, but can’t we at least talk about and "I wouldn't use his exact words, but you can't deny that... Jewish 'control' of media, a topic that some on the right already discuss freely, is now becoming a public, accepted argument, a 'problem' that has to be acknowledged so, you know, a 'solution' can be found, as long as you remember to say 'heated rhetoric' is 'counterproductive.'"
Although new “Chief Twit” Elon Musk recently reinstated Kanye West’s Twitter account, it remains to be seen if it will be suspended again due to Ye’s new comments.
