After his antisemitic rants on social media which resulted in account restrictions, Kanye West made several antisemitic comments in portions of a Fox News interview that were edited out of the program before it was broadcast earlier this week.
Fox News broadcasted the interview between West and host Tucker Carlson on Thursday and Friday, including controversial comments about Jared Kushner that some deemed antisemitic. On Tuesday, Motherboard, part of the Vice Media company, released segments of the interview that were edited out of the final broadcast.
In these segments, West ranted about conspiracies about Jews as well as his belief that “fake children” had been planted in his home to manipulate his own children. He also linked Jews to financial manipulation in the interview, echoing a longstanding antisemitic trope. “My kids are going to a school that teaches Black kids a complicated Kwanzaa. I prefer my kids knew Hanukkah than Kwanzaa. At least it would come with some financial engineering,” he told the far-right cable host.
In another clip, West said Planned Parenthood had conspired to control Jews with the help of Margaret Sanger. “Planned Parenthood was made by Margaret Sanger, a known eugenics, with the KKK to control the Jew population,” West said.
He then appeared to claim that all Black people are Jews. “When I say Jew, I mean the 12 lost tribes of Judah, the blood of Christ who the race, the people known as the race Black really are, is who our people are, the blood of Christ. This as a Christian is my belief,” West said. Earlier this week, he said he couldn’t be antisemitic because “black people are actually Jew.”
