‘He Was Like A Whirlwind’: Alex Jones Weighs In On Viral ‘Anti-Semitic’ Interview With Ye

InfoWars owner and host Alex Jones on Tuesday spoke about his viral interview with Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, in a conversation with conservative comedian and political commentator Steven Crowder.

Crowder said he invited Jones onto his show “Louder with Crowder” to provide some context after his “bumpy ride” interviewing Ye — who appeared on Infowars last week and praised Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party while simultaneously denying that six million Jewish people were killed in the Holocaust.

“I knew it was a danger,” Jones told Crowder about bringing Ye on Infowars. “But I believed it wasn’t going to happen — I would have much rather had it been a big story, and a coming together, an awakening, and then have a relationship with Ye instead of him blowing up like a sun going supernova, burning himself up.”

Jones said he brought Ye onto his platform last week to discuss issues on which the rapper and fashion designer would campaign pending a presidential run in 2024.


Ye, however, apparently jumped into his rant right away.

“He was like a whirlwind,” Jones said. “You couldn’t shut him up. He was going to say what he was going to say.”

West’s comments about Hitler follow a series of anti-Semitic remarks he made in recent weeks, which have led to upending many of his business pursuits, Elon Musk suspending his Twitter account, and reaching a divorce settlement with his ex-wife Kim Kardashian where the court ordered him to pay 200,000 a month in child support.

The rapper has also been seen recently with British provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos and Holocaust denier Nick Fuentes, who accompanied Ye as uninvited guests in an apparent ambush orchestrated by Yiannopoulos to an exclusive diner with former President Donald Trump at his Mar-a-Lago home two days before Thanksgiving.

Ye, who has yet to formally announce his bid for U.S. President in 2024, recently parted ways with Yiannopoulos in a “mutual conclusion” with the rapper to “step away from his political team,” The Daily Beast reported.

Yiannopoulos, who admitted he was the “architect” inviting Fuentes to Ye’s dinner with Trump, allegedly billed the rapper $116,000 for his work, which led to the fallout between both parties.

Amid all the controversy surrounding Ye, the Infowars host told Crowder he still invited West onto his show to share his “intellectual side” before concluding the 21 Grammy award-winning artist was not well-versed in his World War II history.

“I just think what happened was he decided to go all the way,” Jones said. “He decided to try to be as shocking as possible and say screw the world. And then, once he started pressing on the dopamine button of saying the things he said — he just couldn’t stop. And so it became just the situation of red lining the engine the entire time he was on.”

Jones referred to Ye as a “savant” who wants to be a “big revolutionary,” but he and Crowder noted Ye’s disconnect with his remarks about Hitler and the Nazis.

Ye has spoken openly about his pro-life stance on abortion, which contradicts Hitler’s views on the right to life, according to both talk show hosts.

Jones claims Hitler adopted the eugenicist views of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, who subscribed to Socialist ideologies — like the Nazi Party leader. According to Planned Parenthood’s website, eugenics is described as an “inherently racist and ableist ideology that labeled certain people unfit to have children.”

Crowder and Jones said despite Ye’s rants on Hitler and Nazism, they don’t believe the rapper has “hate in his heart.”

“At the end of the day, that’s not the case,” Jones said. “The left has adopted so many of the actual Nazi tactics of control and their whole system of lockdowns,” referring to the Chinese Communist Party controlling citizens by white medical uniformed members. “That’s the real type of ideology that the Nazis were striving for.”

“That’s what I would try to tell [Ye] . . . when he’s not as manic,” Jones said.
