Fox News host Tucker Carlson may not have given his take on rapper Kanye West’s alleged antisemitic posts, but that hasn’t stopped cancel culture from seemingly targeting both individuals as unaired clips of their two-part interview were published to further malign them.
Through Motherboard, Vice obtained unedited footage from the lengthy conversation which included segments cut from the final presentation for reasons unknown. That wasn’t the only salient fact left out of the series of clips as the outlet jumped to the conclusion that West was “making bigoted statements about Jewish people” along with other “bizarre claims about ‘fake children,’ as well as describing visions of ‘kinetic energy’ cities sent to him by God.”
One such clip included a segment of the rapper’s comments about Planned Parenthood and founder Margaret Sanger that hadn’t made the final cut, where after raising a connection to the KKK and eugenics, he continued, “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. This is who our people are. The blood of Christ. This, as a Christian, is my belief.”
West had begun by noting his opinion that there was an ongoing “genocide of the black race” and through some selective editing of their own, Vice left off the follow-up statement where he added, “and I believe that if we saw ourselves as more—if we saw ourselves as a people and not a race, then we would treat our people better.”
As they saw it, West was “referring to the claim, unsupported by historical evidence, that Black people are the ‘real’ Jewish race, which is often used to promote antisemitism.”
Further evidence of the rapper’s alleged bigotry came with his saying, “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. I mean, that’s probably like a bad example and people are going to get mad at that sh*t…I probably want to edit that out.”
West went on to say that “woke is just complaining about racism but not doing anything about it.”
Another questionable statement without further explanation on the rapper’s perspective came when he criticized government schools where his kids were being taught “complicated Kwanzaa” instead of Hanukkah. “I prefer my kids knew Hanukkah than Kwanzaa. At least it will come with some financial engineering,” he offered with a slight laugh.
Later in the piece, Vice included a comment West made about “fake children” and wrote, “‘I mean, like actors, professional actors, placed into my house to sexualize my kids,’ he told Carlson. He referred to the ‘so-called son’ of an associate, seemingly to imply the child was fake. ‘We don’t, we didn’t even believe that this person was her son because he was way smarter than her, right?’”
The outlet went on to criticize West’s faith and how he believes that God communicates with him when the rapper said in the interview, “I have visions that God gives me, just over and over, on community building and how to build these free energy, kinetic energy communities where we impress—we put the least impression on the earth. We’re not building the new New York skyline cockfight. That we are humble in the way that we present ourselves. We’ve got to rethink who we are as a species.”
Because he suggested innovative ways to reimagine society may have come from God, the outlet questions his “state of mind, and general grasp on observable reality.”
Conservative commentator Candace Owens had come out against the overwhelming backlash to West’s alleged antisemitic remarks stating, in part, “If you’re an honest person, when you read this tweet, you had not idea what the hell he was talking about. I had no idea, when I read this tweet, what the hell he was talking about. This tweet inspired questions, not answers.”

She went on to say, “Now, once again, I want to make this very clear. This is not a defensive tweet. This is an open question, which never seems to happen anymore. It’s like you cannot even say the word Jewish without people getting upset in the same way that you’re not allowed to say black anymore.”
Neither Carlson, Fox News nor representatives for West responded to requests for comment from Vice.
