Less than a week after Kanye West sat down with Tucker Carlson for a two-part, two-hour conversation that aired on Fox News, clips have surfaced that add further disturbing layers to the already controversial interview.
West, now known as Ye, makes a series of anti-Semitic remarks in unreleased footage obtained by Vice’s motherboard. He said he would rather teach his children about Hanukkah than Kwanzaa because the earlier holiday would come with some “financial engineering,” and likened blacks judging one another on their “whiteness” to “one Jewish person judging another.” Jewish person judged by how well they danced.” He then tries to clean it up by saying the metaphor is a bad example, before adding, “I’d probably like to edit that out.”
West also pushed for the notion that the reproductive health organization Planned Parenthood was founded by Margaret Sanger and the KKK to control the “Jewish population.” Although Planned Parenthood has distanced itself from Sanger’s views on eugenics — which the group described as “an inherently racist” ideology that governs that “inferior” groups of people should not have children — the group’s origins became Ben Carson and others to spread the conspiracy that Planned Parenthood currently exists to prevent the birth of black children.
West also asserted that blacks were the true Jewish race, a long-held anti-Semitic expression implying that Jews stole the identity and “birthright” of blacks.
“When I say Jew, I mean the 12 lost tribes of Judah, the blood of Christ, the people known as the black race, really are,” West said. “These are our people. The blood of Christ. I believe in that as a Christian.”
Elsewhere, Ye states he has been vaccinated against the coronavirus, which was excised from the last broadcast. Carlson frequently spreads COVID-19 misinformation on his show and opposes vaccination mandates.
The previously unreleased clips add to the flood of outlandish and insulting remarks by Ye that have already aired on Fox News. During the original conversation, West said he found the idea of him wearing the White Lives Matter shirt during Paris Fashion Week “hilarious,” while claiming it was the media’s celebration of Lizzo and her “clinically unhealthy” weight “demonic”.
He also stated that he will be president “eventually” and that he would like Tesla CEO Elon Musk to have an influential voice in his ear when that time comes.
“But if I were in the office right now, I would call Elon any day,” he said. “I would let him sleep in the White House. I would say, “How do we use our platform as the most influential company — that’s a Freudian slip — the most influential country in the world to show the rest of the world how to live a simplified life?”
West was recently banned from Instagram and Twitter after posting anti-Semitic remarks on both platforms.
“I’m a little tired tonight but when I wake up I’m going to JEWISH PEOPLE at Death Con 3,” he wrote on Twitter. “The funny thing is that I can’t actually be an anti-Semite because black people are actually Jews too…You guys played with me and tried to blacken anyone who opposes your agenda.”
