Rapper Kanye “Ye” West praised Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler during a live interview Thursday with Alex Jones on Infowars.

West’s comments about Hitler follow a series of anti-Semitic remarks that he has made in recent weeks, upending many of his business pursuits.

A small sample of some of the anti-Semitic remarks that West has made include him saying that he wanted to go “death con 3” on “JEWISH PEOPLE”; saying his children could learn “financial engineering” in a Jewish school; blaming “Jewish Zionists” for his problems, blaming his marriage ending with Kim Kardashian on the “Zionist media handlers surrounding her,” blaming his mental health diagnosis on a Jewish doctor, and showing a list of the Jews that he believes control the media.

During the interview on Infowars, West was dressed in all black, wearing a heavy black coat, a black balaclava that covered his entire head and face, and black gloves.

Jones tried to defend West at one point, saying that West was not a Nazi and that he did not deserve to be “called that and demonized.”

West pushed back on that statement, saying: “Well, I see good things about Hitler, also. 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 cannot say out loud that this person ever did anything good.’ And I’m done with that. I’m done with the classifications. Every human being has something of value that they bring to the table, especially Hitler.”

Jones pushed back on those statements, calling the Nazis “thugs” who did “a lot of really bad things.”

West responded, “But they did good things too. We gotta stop dissing the Nazis all the time.”

West also said Hitler “had a really cool outfit” and falsely claimed “he didn’t kill 6 million Jews.”

During another point of the interview, Jones said, “I don’t like Nazis.”

West responded, “I like Hitler.”

“I like Hitler,” West said. “I’m not trying to be shocking, I like Hitler. The Holocaust is not what happened, let’s look at the facts of that and Hitler has a lot of redeeming qualities.”

During the interview, West also read off anti-Semitic “jokes” from his phone about Ben Shapiro, The Daily Wire’s founding editor-in-chief and editor emeritus and host of “The Ben Shapiro Show.”
