Fox News liberally edited a recent interview with rapper Kanye West, omitting numerous antisemitic remarks and a statement that he’s vaccinated against COVID-19, it was reported.
Portions of host Tucker Carlson’s two-part interview obtained by Vice showed West, who now goes by the name Ye, saying that he’d rather his kids learn about Hanukkah than Kwanzaa since “at least it would come with some financial engineering.”
Ye told Carlson that Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, whom the artist said was a “known eugenics,” created Planned Parenthood with the KKK “to control the Jew population.”
“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,” Ye told Fox News. “This is who our people are. The blood of Christ. This, as a Christian, is my belief.”
In one clip about Black people judging one another, Ye said: “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.”
He then paused and said he was worried that people might get upset at the comment. “I probably want to edit that out,” he said
“Done,” Carlson said with a quick a wave of the hand.
