Kanye West claims ‘50% of black people’ die from abortion, blames ‘Jewish record labels’

As his business empire crumbles due to a recent spate of anti-Semitic comments, Kanye West continued to delve into hateful anti-Semitic rhetoric this week during a two-and-a-half-hour interview with MIT researcher Lex Fridman. . The interview between the two men, who Ye (as the rapper/entrepreneur is now known) described as “friends”, included inflammatory and unsubstantiated allegations about abortion, Planned Parenthood and what West described as a conspiracy of the “Jewish doctors” to treat and calm him down.

“We are still in the Holocaust. A Jewish friend of mine said, ‘Go visit the Holocaust museum,’ and my response was: Let’s visit our Holocaust museum: Planned Parenthood,” West said, echoing his past offensive statements on Planned. Parenthood while once again amplifying his anti-Semitic commentary by speaking. to Fridman, a Soviet-born Jewish podcaster who noted during the chat that some of his family members were killed by the Nazis during the Holocaust.

West then appeared to downplay the atrocities of the Holocaust, noting that while six million Jews were massacred by the Nazis, “more than 20 million died at the hands of abortion”, claiming that the phrase “my body, my choice” is a “promotion” for Planned Parenthood.

A spokesperson for Planned Parenthood had no comment on West’s statements at press time. While there is no verifiable support for West’s abortion claims, a 2021 national survey of In Our Own Voice: National Reproductive Justice Program for Black Women reported that 80% of black Americans say abortion should be legal, regardless of their personal views.

Undeterred, West added, “Fifty percent of black deaths a year are actually abortions. It’s not the cop with the knee, it’s not Black-on-Black violence and gang violence, it’s not heart attacks, it’s actually abortion. The most dangerous place for a black man in America is in his mother’s stomach.

Later, West repeated his unsubstantiated claim about black abortion and death by also adding an anti-Semitic slant, saying, “It’s not racism; it is too broad a term. It is the genocide and population control that black people are in today in America, that is promoted by the music and media that black people make, that Jewish record labels get paid for.

Fridman pushed back against West’s continued use of the phrase “Jewish media” — which the Anti-Defamation League says has led some anti-Semitic groups to embrace hate speech and “others[ing] their own agendas and [inspiring] new propaganda campaigns – saying that the use of the term creates an “echo of a pain that people feel”, comparing it to statements made by Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels. He also noted that any individuals who might have “f—ed over” West during his years in the music industry are “individuals, they’re not Jews.”

West pushed back, insisting “they’re Jewish,” while Fridman shot back that they’re “humans with opportunities, and they took those opportunities.” I don’t care if they’re Jewish.

Over the weekend, protesters in Los Angeles unfurled a banner on an overpass praising Ye’s anti-Semitic rants that read, “Kanye is right about the Jews.” Fridman also refused to accept West’s smirking claim that the phrase “Jewish media” is a “redundant statement,” likening its use to that of the N-word, though West again insisted that he was ‘Jewish’, but not ‘Jewish,’” which he said translated as “like that of a Jew”.

West also repeated his assertion that he cannot be anti-Semitic because he is Jewish when digressing into the history of Jewish slavery in Egypt. “If Jews accepted that I was Jewish, they would hear it differently,” Ye said, while Fridman suggested “the right thing to do is not to say there is Jewish control over the media.” . West, however, went further, blaming what he described as a Jewish conspiracy that led to him being diagnosed with mental illness; in a 2018 interview, West, 45, said he had been diagnosed with a mental illness, which ex-wife Kim Kardashian called a bipolar illness, and which the rapper later said was “not a handicap is a superpower”.

“There was a Jewish trainer who took me to the hospital and put me [the] press that I went to the hospital. A Jewish doctor who diagnosed me,” West said as Fridman asked again why he insisted the doctor was Jewish. “Because they were,” West told her. “He diagnosed me with bipolar disorder and injected me with drugs. Then put it in the press…and every time, even though I was wearing the wrong color hat that a – uh isn’t supposed to wear, okay, so they immediately say, ‘he’s off his bullshit, he’s off his meds, he’s off his tumbler. And he’s literally being used as a scarlet letter control mechanism.

West’s recent series of controversial interviews, along with his promotion of his “White Lives Matter” t-shirt, led to the collapse of his business empire. Adidas is the latest former business partner to cut ties with Ye over his offensive comments, saying in a statement on Tuesday (October 25th): “Adidas does not tolerate anti-Semitism and any other type of hate speech. Ye’s recent comments and actions have been unacceptable, hateful and dangerous, and they violate the company’s values ​​of diversity and inclusion, mutual respect and fairness.

Ye was also suspended from Twitter and Instagram this month for anti-Semitic posts that social media said violated their policies. His latest controversial statements led the talent agency, CAA to drop him, and studio MRC announced on Monday that it was shelving a full documentary on the rapper.

In addition, Daily Women’s Clothing reported that fashion house Balenciaga cut ties with West last week, and his bank, JPMorganChase, said it had ended their business relationship with Ye. The company said its decision came weeks before Ye’s recent barrage of anti-Semitic slurs.

When Fridman suggested Ye stop amplifying false narratives about alleged Jewish control of the media, West replied, “That’s wrong though! It’s a lie,” claiming that “they” bullied him in reference to the Jewish people. Amid his recitation of anti-Semitic tropes, West lashed out at Democratic billionaire fundraiser and philanthropist George Soros – a frequent target of conservatives and Republican politicians – saying he would “use the black trauma economy to win an election”.

The rapper – who is the founder of a private religious academy – also took a bizarre conspiratorial tangent about how history and race shouldn’t be taught in schools, because “what schools do is exactly what the CIA does with Pixar and Disney movies. movies: they make Bambi’s mother die at the beginning,” said Ye, who recently noted in interviews his anger at being identified as a rapper and not a business mogul and entrepreneur. “And out of that pain comes a purchase of ice cream. From this pain comes, “I need more toys”…they put this pain to make us…now we are the orphans of capitalism, to make us consumers and we have to be a community, not just consumers.

When asked at one point what he loved most about his ex-wife Kardashian, West replied “she’s a mix of [late father] Robert [Kardashian] and Chris [Jenner] …two geniuses…some people have high DNA…Ivanka Trump has high DNA.

In light of her hate speech, Kardashian — and her sister Khloe — condemned the hurtful rhetoric, which West admitted to Fridman cost him dearly.

“I lost my fucking family. I lost my kids. I lost my best friend in fashion. I lost the black community,” he said, jokingly adding blows to Coca-Cola and McDonald’s while claiming he is able to speak his mind because he has “God’s protection”.

“People said I lost my mind,” he continued, accusing Ari Emanuel of “trying to take food out of my kids’ mouths” after the CEO of William Morris Endeavor allegedly writes an editorial in the newspaper. FinancialTimes this week urging the companies to part ways with West. “I lost my reputation. And I’m here just like, I just want my family. But I don’t want my family to have to say what the left wants them to say, to have to say what China wants them to say. I want to be an American and protect my children and protect my wife, and raise my children as Christians, and my wife to be a Christian.
