Antisemites in Los Angeles, California, hung a banner over a freeway stating their support for Kanye West’s recent claims against Jews by declaring that “Kanye is right about the Jews.”
An antisemitic banner was hung over a freeway by supporters of Kanye West’s recently surfacing views about Jews, reported The Times Of Israel. It appears that the racist Goyim Defense League was behind the move, with members photographed performing Nazi salutes beside the banner.
West’s recent antisemitic outbursts included vowing to go “death con 3 on Jewish people,” claiming that he is the target of a “Jewish underground media mafia” and that “Jewish people have owned the Black voice.” Among other social media platforms, he was suspended from Instagram and Twitter for his comments.
The Goyim Defense League has launched a campaign “seeking to convince Black people that Jews are a universal enemy,” the anti-hate group Anti-Defamation League (ADL) states in a report. According to the report, Goyim Defense League members have proposed targeting Jews by blaming them for certain atrocities or divisive issues, like slavery and abortion.
After the banner appeared over the freeway, antisemitic flyers were distributed in a nearby neighbourhood, saying that “Every single aspect of mass immigration is Jewish,” linking Jews to the white supremacist Great Replacement conspiracy theory, which states that Jews and others are attempting to replace white Americans with other groups, and which is repeatedly cited as a reason to kill minorities, including Jews.
Other antisemitic and racist groups have also embraced West’s remarks to further their hate-filled agendas. Moreover, West’s comments seem to have encouraged some white supremacists to take to social media for the first time in months to support his antisemitic comments.
“To prove Kanye wrong about the Jews running everything and being out to get him…this is what they do. Big Shekel is definitely making their presence known,” read a message on a Proud Boys-associated Telegram channel, according to ADL.
