Kanye West attacks Jews and abortion in new interview with Lex Friedman

In a sprawling new podcast interview with MIT research scientist Lex Friedman, Kanye West makes another series of incendiary and false statements about the Holocaust, abortion, and the Jewish people.

West, who now plays Ye, has been in the midst of an anti-Semitic rip-off through the right-wing media and podcast circuit, and his hate speech over the past weeks has cost him deals with talent agency CAA and fashion label Balenciaga, while his lucrative partnership with adidas giants For sportswear under review. Kim Kardashian condemned her ex-husband’s anti-Semitic comments on social media on Monday, following a local demonstration on Sunday by a hate group that referenced West’s sermons.

In a two-hour, 26-minute interview published on Monday that touched on topics ranging from engineering to the media to his relationship with Kardashian and ex-boyfriend Pete Davidson, West appeared in a cheerful, albeit erratic mood. He described eating dinner at the Cheesecake Factory the night before and sitting next to a veteran, with whom he discussed politics.

But West did offer an apology for his recent comments to Friedman, the Soviet-born Jewish host.

Echoing a statement he made in a previous interview, West said, “We are still in the Holocaust. A friend of mine who is Jewish said, ‘Go visit the Holocaust Museum,’ and my response was, ‘Let’s visit the Holocaust Museum: Planned Parenthood.'”

He continued, “Fifty percent of the… deaths of blacks today are abortions…. It’s not racism, it’s racism.” This is a very broad term. It is the genocide and population control that black people are experiencing today in America, promoted through black-made music and media, and paid for by Jewish record companies.”

Friedman responded to the West’s anti-Semitic allegations of the Jewish-run media, saying, “I grew up in the Soviet Union. I’m Jewish, and parts of my family perished in the Holocaust in Nazi Germany, and I have to defend…when you say ‘Jewish media'” There is an echo of the pain people feel.”

“You’re saying it’s redundant, right?” West said with a smile. “If the Jewish people accept that I am a Jew, they will hear it differently.”

“The right thing to do is not to say that there is a Jewish control of the media,” Friedman added.

“It’s not true though!” They shouted again. “This AF – lying. There. And did they come and bully me and prove my point.”

Later, West accepts that his far-right beliefs have cost him his family and career. “I lost my family. I lost my children. I lost my best friend in fashion. I lost the black community,” he said. “People said I lost my mind…. I lost my reputation. And I’m here just like, I just want my family. But I don’t want my family to say what the left wants you to say, to say what China wants you to say. I want to be an American and protect my children and protect my wife, raise my children as Christians, and have my wife a Christian.”

West also spoke in condescending terms about his ex-wife’s paternity, commenting, “Some people have high DNA. Ivanka Trump has high DNA.” West later said that George Soros, a Jewish activist and philanthropist, would “use the black shock economy to win the election.”

At one point, West suggests that a Jewish conspiracy led him to be diagnosed with a mental illness. “There was a Jewish coach who took me to the hospital and admitted me [the] Press I went to the hospital. A Jewish doctor diagnosed me—”

“Why do you keep saying Jew?” Friedman interrupted him. “Because they were,” West said. He continued, “He diagnosed me with bipolar disorder and gave me medication. Then he put it in the press.”

West accused Ari Emmanuel, chief executive of William Morris Endeavor, of “trying to get food out of my children’s mouth”, by writing an opinion piece in the Financial Times calling for companies to cut ties with the rapper.

When asked at the end of the interview what he hopes his legacy will be, West said, “Who designed the sidewalk, who designed the water fountain, who designed the stop sign, and who designed the stop lamp? These things are so ubiquitous that the person who designed them is forgotten.”

What he wants for himself, he said, is “to be forgotten”.
