US President Joe Biden called on American political leaders to reject antisemitism “wherever it hides,” after troubled rapper Kanye West publicly declared his admiration for Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler.

In a tweet on Friday, Biden declared that “The Holocaust happened. Hitler was a demonic figure. And instead of giving it a platform, our political leaders should be calling out and rejecting antisemitism wherever it hides.”

“Silence is complicity,” Biden concluded.

While Biden’s tweet did not reference Kanye West, it came a day after the rapper was suspended from Twitter for posting an image of the Star of David intertwined with a swastika. Twitter CEO Elon Musk, who earlier reinstated West’s account after he was suspended for threatening “Jewish people,” declared that the image “violated our rule against incitement to violence.”

On Wednesday, West appeared on Alex Jones’ Infowars show, where he told the infamous right-wing host that “there’s a lot of things that I love about Hitler,” and that people should “stop dissing Nazis all the time.” Jones attempted to push back against the hooded rapper’s remarks, accusing him of harboring a “little bit of a Hitler fetish.” (RT)
