Ye – the rapper formerly known as Kanye West – went on a deranged and antisemitic rant during the December 1 edition of Infowars’ The Alex Jones Show, where he repeatedly praised Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party and denied the Holocaust. Hours later, right-wing YouTuber Tim Pool and his co-hosts defended Ye’s comments and appearance on Infowars, just days after the rapper walked out of an interview on Pool’s own show.
During the December 1 stream, Pool said, “I think it was really good that Alex Jones had them on” Infowars, and described Ye’s appearance as “a strong argument for free speech.”
Additionally, Pool claimed that white nationalist and Holocaust denier Nick Fuentes said “a lot of things that a lot of people would agree with” while he was on his show.
“Of course I think he believes things that are wrong, completely disagree with,” Pool said. “But then he’ll also say something where you’re also like, ‘Oh, OK,” then it’s humanizing.”
Pool’s guest, far-right troll Alex Stein, added that Fuentes “is hilarious, and he’s funny, and I do think he is a little misunderstood.”
Pool’s co-host, Ian Crossland, agreed with his peers. Crossland described Fuentes as “the perfect allegory of Christ.”
Later, Stein suggested that Ye should use music to get his “anti-New World Order” messaging across.
Stein invited Ye to appear on his forthcoming show on Glenn Beck’s BlazeTV.
“TheBlaze is going to be mad that I said that, but Kanye is welcome on my show,” Stein added. “And I’m going to be nice to you.”
Stein also claimed that Ye is bringing “more people to the populist movement.”
This is not the first time Pool has come to Ye’s defense. After hosting the rapper and neo-Nazi ally Milo Yiannopoulos on his show earlier this week, Pool described Ye as “smart” and Yiannopoulos as a “genius” — even after Ye and his posse stormed out of Pool’s podcast studio following the rapper’s antisemitic comments.
In fact, Pool and his co-hosts have been defending Ye since he began his antisemitic tirade began back in October:
As of this morning, Pool is retweeting “YE vs THEY 2024” content on Twitter (“they” appears to be an allusion to Jewish people):
