(October 12, 2022 / JNS) Kanye West’s bizarre and anti-Semitic remarks were cut from a recent Tucker Carlson interview by Fox News.
“I’d prefer my kids knew Chanukah than Kwanzaa, at least it would come with some financial engineering,” said West, who now goes by the name Ye. This plays off the anti-Semitic belief that Jews control the world’s financial system.
Vice obtained parts of the interview that were taken out of the version aired.
Other footage that did not air has multiple statements about Jews.
West remarked, “When I say Jew, I mean the 12 lost tribes of Judah, the blood of Christ, who the people known as the race Black really are.”
Carlson did not counter West’s claims and closed the segment by saying he is “not crazy” and “worth listening to.”
Twitter, over the weekend, restricted the account of the American rapper and designer following a rant in which he posted to the social media platform that he would go “death con 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE.”
It came after Instagram on Sunday suspended West’s profile after he shared a screenshot of a conversation with rapper Sean “Diddy” Combs that was captioned “Jesus is Jew.” In one of the messages, West suggested that Combs was controlled by Jews, a centuries-old blood libel.
