Kanye West’s interview with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson raised eyebrows last week, but perhaps what wasn’t aired by the conservative network is even more controversial.
In clips shared by Vice, the rapper reveals he was COVID-19 vaccinated when asked by Carlson, however later in the interview, ‘Ye goes on a rant about Planned Parenthood, labeling founder Margaret Sanger “a known eugenics” who created the organization “with the KKK to control the Jew population.”
The women’s healthcare organization has vehemently denounced West’s claim that Sanger was a eugenicist.
“When I say Jew, I mean the 12 lost tribes of Judah, the blood of Christ, who the people known as the race Black really are,” he added. “This is who our people are: the blood of Christ. This, as a Christian, is my belief.”
In his biblical references, Ye seemingly mixes up Old Testament stories, considering it’s the 12 tribes of Israel, with Judah being one of the ancient prophet Jacob’s 12 sons.
West continued by also stating, “Think about us judging each other on how white we could talk would be like, you know, a Jewish person judging another Jewish person on how good they danced or something. I mean, that’s probably like a bad example and people are going to get mad at that s**t. I probably want to edit that out.”
Additionally, Kanye introduced Hanukkah into the discussion in reference to his four kids with Kim Kardashian. “I was biting my tongue on my political opinion because I thought it would be better for my children. And now you look up, and my kids are going to a school that teaches Black kids a complicated Kwanzaa,” he told Carlson. “I prefer my kids knew Hanukkah than Kwanzaa. At least it will come with some financial engineering.”
The reference to “financial engineering” could be interpreted as the anti-Semitic conspiracy theory that espouses that Jewish businessmen control the global financial system.
