The group went on to highlight the numerous instances in which Kanye West has expressed his anti-Semitism, from his promise to go “death con 3” on Jewish people to his rants about “Jewish media” conspiring against him. Kanye West then took those sentiments to a whole new level in late November when he praised Hitler during an interview with Alex Jones.
“I love Hitler. … I’m not trying to be shocking, I love Hitler. The Holocaust is not what happened. Let’s look at the facts about it, and Hitler has a lot of redeeming qualities West said while wearing a full black mask.”[Hitler] had a really cool outfit, and he was a really good architect…and he didn’t kill six million Jews.
Hours later, Twitter CEO Elon Musk kicked Kanye West off the social media platform for sharing a Nazi swastika crossed with the Jewish Star of David as a sign of ‘love’ for both . The logo follows comments he made to Alex Jones in which he said he loved Hitler, the Nazis and the Jewish people in one breath while simultaneously denying that the first two groups murdered six million of these.
You wear a symbol worn on the arm of the people who murdered my relatives and six million other Jews.
Putting it inside a Jewish star makes it all the more obscene.

Shortly after sharing the symbol, Kanye West shared an alleged screenshot of a private text exchange between him and Elon Musk in which Musk said that West had “gone too far”.
“Sorry, but you’ve gone too far. That’s not love,” Elon allegedly told Kanye.
Kanye replied, “Who made you the judge?”
Kanye then shared more of the alleged exchange on Truth Social which showed Elon praying the Our Father prayer, to which Kanye said, “I am the name of Jesus.”

Kanye West doubled down on Hitler’s praise in an interview with Gavin McInnes last week and said the murderous tyrant’s “bad reputation” was perpetuated by the Jewish media. He also called on Jews to forgive Hitler while denying the horrors of the Holocaust.
