Kanye West released a 2024 campaign video after meeting with Trump
President Joe Biden condemns the latest comments from the rapper formerly known as Kanye West after his anti-Semitic rants and praise for Adolf Hitler and the Nazis.
“Instead of giving a platform, our political leaders should call out and oppose anti-Semitism wherever it hides,” the president said on his office’s Twitter account. “Silence is complexity.”
Elon Musk banned the rapper from the stage after he shared a picture of a swastika in the Star of David. Far-right conspiracy theorist Alex Jones shared the offensive image Thursday night, hours after he said “I love Hitler” while appearing on his Infowars show.
“I tried my best,” Mr. Musk said. “Despite this, he has again violated our rules against inciting violence. The account will be suspended.”
He also wrote “FAFO” – short for “F*** Around and Find Out”.
The Twitter ban and Nazi diatribe at Jones’ show comes after West was recently dropped by Adidas, GAP and Balenciaga for a series of anti-Semitic comments.
Bernie Sanders condemned the ‘disgusting and offensive’ comments.
Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders says Kanye West’s praise of Hitler and the Nazis is “disgusting and disgusting.”
“Anti-Semitism, racism, xenophobia, sexism or homophobia will always divide us.” “Our mission is to unite people around a progressive agenda that improves all lives.”
