Kanye West and His Antisemitic Posse Storm Off Right-Wing Podcast That Wasn't Right-Wing Enough

Ye, Nick Fuentes and Milo Yiannopoulos suddenly walked out of the 'Timcast IRL' recording when their views were challenged

Another day, another Kanye. Yesterday (November 28) saw the disgraced rapper — joined by Holocaust denier Nick Fuentes and white supremacist Milo Yiannopoulos — make an appearance on Tim Pool's Timcast IRL podcast, where he discussed all of the (rightful) backlash surrounding his antisemitic comments for Pool's largely right-wing YouTube audience of around 1.4 million subscribers.

"I thought I was more Malcolm X, but I found out I'm more MLK," West told the host. "As I'm getting hosed down every day by the press and financially, I'm just standing there. When I found out they were trying to put me in jail, it was like a dog was biting my arm, and I almost shed a tear. Almost. But I still walked in stride through it."

The comment about people looking to lock the artist up may have something to do with Adidas launching an investigation into the allegations that he showed Yeezy employees porn and used intimidation tactics, claims exposed last week in a report by Rolling Stone. (Or the $50 million USD that he told Pool he apparently owes in taxes.)

Pool concurred, saying that "they have been extremely unfair" — prompting West to ask who, exactly, he meant by "they." West continued, "We can't say who 'they' is,'" seemingly referring to his earlier antisemitic comments that the media is controlled by Jewish people.

"Corporate press," Pool clarified. "I don't use the word as the way, I guess, you guys use."

Hate speech enthusiast Fuentes pressed, "It is them, though, isn't it?"

"No, it's not," Pool answered, and West promptly fired back, "What do you mean it's not?"

In classic Ye fashion, he stormed out of the studio, with minions Fuentes and Yiannopoulos following at his heel.

Pool told the audience, "He's gone. I'll say it right now: you guys want to bring that stuff up, and then think we're not gonna have a conversation?"

Blasphemous bosom buddies Fuentes and Yiannopoulos were also reportedly present at the Mar-a-Lago meeting where Donald Trump allegedly insulted West and Kim Kardashian. Still hellbent on making America greatly xenophobic again(?), the now-frenemies will face off yet again in the running for US president in 2024.
