Kanye West gets a clear message, “hate doesn’t pay.”
The DEFCON 3 threats alone got him into enough trouble, but he didn’t feel that that was enough and decided to go on a podcast called Drink Champs.
This podcast was honestly everywhere, you can clearly see Kanye has been constantly fed misinformation and is spewing it to his audience now. On the podcast, he went on to talk about how his statements about Jews were nothing but factual saying that Jews have been controlling him and “owning the black voice,” which is interesting to think about since, for the past few years, Kanye has been saying that African Americans are to blame for their current suffering but now since he has to defend his hateful comments somehow he is using the same thing he and his political friends have been criticizing for years which is to blame the group of people he has brought hate upon and make it seem as though it’s their fault if he’s like this.
Jews have always tried to help African Americans because they both have suffered through thousands of years of oppression, and Jews were major supporters of equal rights during the civil rights movement and even went down south to protest with African Americans.
Kanye continues his rant, saying that African Americans are being cheated by Jews who own the banks, record labels, and basketball teams. That enough makes these statements pretty antisemitic, but he continues with another ludicrous statement, saying that Jews got rich because when the Catholic Church and catholic lawyers didn’t want to divorce certain people, these couples would turn to Jews to divorce them.
Another factor in Jewish success with money was the studying of the Talmud, which even today is taught in South Korea to help with mathematics and law. Secondly, there is the historical fact that Jews in most European countries, since their banishment from Judah, now Israel, up until the 19th century, were forced only to be accountants, that in turn gave them a far better understanding of how money should be spent than the average citizen.
Kanye has no defense he is not a Jew, and his lack of knowledge of the 12 lost tribes that he uses as his main argument to spread antisemitism is pathetic, but that is just a pathetic attempt to try to make himself and people who think like him feel better. He later on even admits that he’s just jealous that Jews have money and that they are happily married and many other things, but instead of using that admiration to better himself, he wants to blame Jews for his bad business investments and failed marriage like all the Jew hatting individuals throughout history.
All this unnecessary hatred cost him more than a billion dollars, and now after buying a failed right-wing app Kanye West is in deep financial trouble, this was caused by people he thinks are his friends but just use him for political gain.
In conclusion, Kanye’s whole debacle is proof that history repeats itself and that if someone with a large audience says hateful things about a group of people, they will bring harm to that group. Although it might not sound like an insult to be called rich and to control the world, Jews know the ultimate meaning behind these messages and know enough about their history to know when they are in danger of facing another hateful campaign against them and will do anything to stop it, “never again”. Words have consequences, and the protests on a bridge in California prove it, if you make it seem like someone else is in the wrong for your wrongdoings, you’re bound to get the attention of very dangerous people.
