Did Kanye West just come out of the closet about his long-time admiration for Hitler?

Amidst all the controversies piling up about Ye, it would seem skeletons are emerging from his closet. As per a source, West would praise the Hitler, finding it incredible how “he was able to accumulate so much power and would talk about all the great things he and the Nazi Party achieved for the German people.” It is said that the Gold Digger singer admired the Nazi leader even 20 years ago and wanted to use propaganda to push his fame and career.

Even his TMZ interview was cut out and former employee Van Lathan Jr. claimed that Ye said, “I love Hitler. I love Nazis.” These statements throughout the year would cause the people in his work environment to feel uncomfortable. Hitler’s accumulation of power and ability to “achieve” so much through the Nazi party is what attracted Ye to the disgraced leader.

His inner circle considers his dangerous admiration to be a well-kept but well-known secret. His “Deathcon 3 to Jewish people” comment was only the beginning of his coming out as pro-Hitler. While many celebrities have spoken up against him, it has not stopped him from changing his narrative. It remains to be seen whether he will be allowed to continue speaking as an individual or if he will be stopped in any legal way.
