West also said he watched a documentary presented by Candace Owens (The Biggest Lie Ever Sold: George Floyd and the Rise of BLM), which suggested that George Floyd was not killed by a knee on his neck but by fentanyl. This led to an implication (which he also reiterated Tucker Carlson) that designer Virgil Abloh didn’t die of cancer but was somehow murdered by Louis Vuitton executives. He then asked if the interview was going on, saying that “the Jewish media blocked me before” and repeating “I am enlightened” several times.
Throughout history, turning a blind eye when powerful voices meddled with unfounded accusations about Jews led to their violent expulsion from England in 1090, from Spain in 1492, massacres in Russia in the 19th and early 20th centuries, and the attempted systematic Genocide and murder of six million under the Nazi regime.
