Kanye West Is not Simply an Antisemite. He is Additionally a Huge Snowflake

The rapper Ye, previously often known as Kanye West, may simply be probably the most controversial man on the web proper now. The music star has fallen from grace in latest weeks amid a sequence of overtly antisemitic rants, tweets, and interviews.

More and more, Ye’s solely base of political assist is amongst a far-right fringe, as evidenced by his newfound friendship with white supremacist Nick Fuentes. However even that final remnant of assist could be in jeopardy, now that Ye has confirmed himself to be simply what the Proper normally deplores: an enormous snowflake.

Ye went viral once more Monday evening after showing on “Timcast IRL,” a wildly in style YouTube present hosted by Tim Pool. The interview rapidly descended into chaos, with Ye rambling and citing lots of the identical antisemitic speaking factors which have gotten him in scorching water. However the second that went viral was when Pool politely pushed again in opposition to Ye’s antisemitism and Ye stormed off the set, simply 20 minutes into what’s normally a three-hour present.

It occurred after Ye as soon as once more falsely claimed that Jewish folks management the banks, the media, and the political system.

“I’ve simply received to go proper to the center of this antisemite declare that is occurring,” Ye mentioned. “You may’t declare that there is a number of folks within banks or in media which might be all Jewish … otherwise you’re antisemitic. And that is the reality.”

“Once we begin questioning issues… you then instantly get … demonized, demonetized,” he continued. “Now we will actually see that Rahm Emanuel was proper subsequent to Obama and Jared Kushner was proper subsequent to Trump … Duh-do!”

It ought to go with out saying that the truth that each Obama and Trump had one Jewish member of their dozens of advisors doesn’t, in reality, show that Jews really management our politics. Pool naturally pushed again, politely however firmly disputing the antisemitic foundation of Ye’s claims. “There are a handful of individuals that you just see which might be Jewish in a sure place and you then affiliate Judaism with the ability whereas I view that as not related to it,” he interjected. “Like, Ye, you are considerably extra highly effective than I’m, however I do not view what you are doing as a difficulty of Black folks.”

However moderately than defend his absurd declare, Ye’s rambling response to Pool’s modest pushback pivoted to non-public, destructive experiences he is had with a number of Jewish people, together with his earlier private coach. He then used that to as soon as once more nebulously blame “them” for these issues. He then threatened to stroll out of the interview.

“I am actually going to stroll the f— off the present if I am sitting up right here having to speak about you may’t say that it was Jewish folks that did it when each smart individual is aware of,” Ye mentioned. “My head was on the aspect of the curb … and the precise folks that I known as out kicked my head.”

“I believe they have been extraordinarily unfair to you,” Pool mentioned, however Ye interrupted to push the purpose: “Who’s they?” When Pool clarified that he meant the company media, not the Jews, Ye stormed off the set.

This was an finally unsurprising finish to an unhinged efficiency by Ye. Not solely did he proceed to push false and weird generalizations in regards to the Jewish folks—which must be dangerous sufficient in its personal proper—however he melted down like a snowflake upon even the slightest questioning of his statements.

All issues thought-about, Pool was if something very mild with Ye, and even that proved an excessive amount of.

For a person who laments that issues “cannot be questioned” to soften down and storm out of an interview when he will get questioned is the peak of hypocrisy. It is the identical resistance to debate and mental fragility that the sort of people that have supported Ye rightly decry when it is noticed in progressives.

To prime all of it off, Ye reportedly performed the sufferer after the interview, justifying his dramatic exit with the notion—absurd to anybody who sat by his rambling—that he did not get to speak sufficient.

This unhappy saga must be the final straw for anybody on the Proper who nonetheless takes Ye critically. His rank antisemitism ought to have been sufficient, sure. However Ye’s paper-thin pores and skin and snowflake antics additional incinerate no matter shreds of credibility he had left.
