Ye cannot shake off his anti-Semitism, even with the mildest resistance from a sympathetic audience.
That became clear during an interview with far-right podcaster Tim Pool on Monday, who gave the rapper, formerly known as Kanye West, a small reprimand for an anti-Semitic tirade.
Ye didn’t like it one bit and left the show, followed by his hateful buddies, white supremacist Nick Fuentes and right-wing troll Milo Yiannopoulos.
Pool let Ye rant about everything from one for almost 20 minutes designer at Adidas, who he claimed was both a “Zionist” factory and a CIA agent; his former trainer, who he is certain was a Canadian Deep State agent; and the so-called Jewish cabal, which he is convinced controls banks and the media, The Daily Beast reported.
Ye once mentioned the names of Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner and politician Rahm Emanuel, both of whom are Jews, as targets of his anti-Semitic anger.
Pool easily challenged him, asking, according to Fox News, “Isn’t that a problem with those individuals” rather than their identities?
“They went straight into the anti-Semite thing,” Pool said. “I think it’s something that should be talked about, but if you start bringing it up you’ll ask my opinion on it, I’ll disagree.”
But Pool tried to find common ground with Ye by telling him: “I think they were extremely unfair to you,” only to be pointedly asked by the rapper who “they” were.
When Pool replied, “The corporate press,” Ye asked, “Who actually is ‘she’?”
At that point, Fuentes, the Holocaust denier who joined Ye for a dinner with Trump last week, made it clear that he thought “they” were actually Jews.
Ye then walked off the show.

Of course, Twitter users (including HuffPost’s Andy Campbell) were concerned about the whole sordid incident.
