Ye, the rap and fashion mogul formerly known as Kanye West, went all in on anti-Semitism in a disturbing interview aired on the Revolt TV website Sunday.
West, whose anti-Semitic statements in recent weeks got him suspended from Instagram and Twitter, where he has tens of millions of followers, went even further in the interview, dubbed “Drink Champs Round Three.” Wearing a black ballcap with “2024” emblazoned on the bill, West launched into a rant about how the “Jewish people have owned the black voice,” while insisting he can’t be anti-Semitic because he is a Jew.
“Either it’s through us wearing the Ralph Lauren shirt, or it’s all of us being signed to a record label, or having a Jewish manager, or being signed to a Jewish basketball team, or doing a movie on a Jewish platform like Disney,” West said. “We understand, and I respect what the Jewish people have done, and how they brought their people together.
“You know, they came into money through the lawyers, when uh, after Wall Street, when all of the, like the Catholics, they wouldn’t divorce people,” he continued. “So the Jewish lawyers came and they were willing to divorce people. That’s when they first came into money.”
The 45-minute interview was conducted by hosts Queens rapper N.O.R.E. and Miami hip-hop impresario DJ EFN, and was a continuation of two prior sitdowns with West. N.O.R.E. wore a cap that matched West’s and introduced him as a “genius.”
West blamed Jews for exploiting entertainment artists.
“What they do is, the Jewish community, especially in the music industry, … entertainment, period, they’ll take one of us, the brightest of us, right, that could really feed a whole village. And they take and milk us until we die and then Stevie Wonder’s kid gotta get a job.”
West’s claim that he is Jewish seems to spawn from a theory that blacks are members of the Lost Tribes of Israel.
“With the darker Jews, the [sic] lost tribes of Israel, who we are – we’re Jewish also. We’re from Africa. We’re the blood of Christ. So we’re not just black. We are Jewish people.”
West also blamed “Jewish Zionists” for lurid news stories about his ex-wife Kim Kardashian and her former boyfriend Pete Davidson.
West expounded on the tweet that led to him being kicked off the social media platforms last week, one in which he vowed to go “death con 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE.”
“I’m a bit sleepy tonight but when I wake up I’m going death con 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE,” Ye wrote in the since-deleted tweet that followed a wild two-part interview October 6 and 7 with Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson, in which West accused ex-President Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner of trying to broker peace in the Middle East for his own personal profit. “The funny thing is I actually can’t be Anti Semitic because black people are actually Jew also. You guys have toyed with me and tried to black ball anyone whoever opposes your agenda.”
West acknowledged in the Revolt interview spelling “defcon” wrong, saying, “I have a tendency to do that,” and adding that “defcon is actually that you’re preparing to protect yourself.”
In addition to getting him booted from Twitter, West told the Drink Champs hosts the “death con” comment resulted in the cancelation of four upcoming concerts at LA’s So-Fi Stadium.
“Once they cancel four So-Fi Stadiums because of what’s classified as wrong-think,” West said, “because it’s very important to have the black vote in groupthink, and not separate from the thought and being completely in line with the Left, the Jewish media and the Chinese.”
Explaining the reference to China, West said simply, “They got something to do with everything.”
West said apparel maker Dov Charney was angered over the tweet and refused to produce the “White Lives Matter” T-shirts West had hoped to sell after he and The Daily Wire’s Candace Owens donned them at a Paris fashion show earlier this month.
“He’s like, nah, he ain’t releasin’ the T, cause he’s Jewish,” said West. “And I’m like, ‘See? This is the exact point I’ve been making.’ Jewish people have owned the black voice.”
When Charney, who was offended by West’s “death con” comment, advised him to visit Washington’s Holocaust Museum, West said he told him to visit Planned Parenthood, which is “our Holocaust Museum.”
West, who JP Morgan Chase dropped last month over apparently unrelated issues, lumped the banking giant in with all the other groups with whom he has a grievance.
“I put a $140 million in J.P. Morgan, and they treated me like sh–,” he said. “So if J.P. Morgan Chase is treating me like that, how they treating the rest of y’all?”
While the interview may do little to dispel longstanding concerns about West’s mental health, he told his hosts he has been a victim.
“They been f—ing with me for too long,” West said. “They put the crazy narrative out there… Paparazzi taking a photo of you, you ain’t getting no money off of it. You’re used to getting screwed by the Jewish media. And I’m saying, you poked the bear too f—-ing long.
“I told ya’ll I’m a leader,” he said. “I told y’all, Imma free my people.”
