Kanye West has dug himself a deeper hole in recent weeks with his anti-Semitic outbursts, flimsy allegations about race and the death of George Floyd, and his use of the r-word to refer to Vice President Joe Biden. His actions have elicited a great deal of criticism, concern, and compassion online. If there’s still any doubt that Kanye is cultivating seeds of hatred with his bigoted and anti-Semitic rants, a rally in Los Angeles should erase it.
TMZ reports that anti-Semitic banners were hung on an overpass on the infamous 405 freeway. The organizers urged drivers to “honk if you know Kanye is right about the Jews.” The Goyim Defense League appears to be responsible for the hateful words and rally.
According to the Anti-Defamation League, the group is a loose network of virulently anti-Semitic conspiracy theorists. However, Saturday’s impromptu rally reveals that Kanye’s statements have certainly empowered the group. Members of the group were also giving the Nazi salute to passing drivers.
Imagine being a Jewish person and seeing it on your way home. It comes on the heels of Kanye frequently spewing tropes about Jewish people controlling everything in Hollywood and banking. He tweeted two weeks ago that he was “going death con 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE” when Instagram disabled his account. During his interview with Piers Morgan, Ye stated that he only had one regret regarding his anti-Semitic remarks.
Kanye did, however, stand by his most dangerously bigoted remarks. Ye, as previously reported, told photographers on Friday night that the backlash against him just supports his argument about Jewish people controlling the narrative. However, Saturday’s rally shows that Ye is also driving his own hate-filled narrative.
This should be stopped as quickly as possible to avoid a riot. Let’s see what happens. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
