Kanye West preferred to earn the dishonor for “Anti-Semite of the Year.”
Disgraced rapper and fashion mogul Kanye West is favored to receive the shameful title of Anti-Semite of the Year by a group that persecutes Jewish hatred.
The other two finalists for the Disgrace award are Mohamed Hadid – the father of supermodels Gigi and Bella Hadid – and Jon Minadeo II, who runs the white supremacist group the Goyim Defense League.
The group StopAntisiemtism.org said West – also known as Yeezy or Ye – has received the most votes so far.
West tweeted last month that he was planning “Death Con 3” against Jews, with critics seeing it as a direct threat to the Jewish community.
“As you can imagine, Ye received the most votes from the StopAntisemitism list of the top 10 ‘Antisemites of the Year’ in 2022, closely followed by Mohamed Hadid and Jon Minadeo II,” a representative for the group told The Post.
“Ye uses his celebrity platform to promote anti-Semitic tropes about Jews, power and money. It was a lose-lose situation in that it was a self-fulfilling prophecy in that he knew he would lose those contracts and business relationships, whether they belonged to Jews or not, while at the same time respecting a black Hebrew Israelites’ fringe belief about the blacks as Jews maintained true Jews.”
Adidas, Balenciaga and other firms have severed ties with West, costing the entertainer a large chunk of his fortune after he “waged more than two weeks of anti-Semitic tirade on social media and in press interviews,” the group said.
Former President Donald Trump was toasted for a dinner with Kanye West – and white nationalist and Holocaust survivor Nick Fuentes – at the Mar-A-Lago last week. Trump distanced himself somewhat from West on Saturday, calling him a “seriously concerned man.”
The anti-hate group also complained that Mohamed Hadid “turned into a rabid Jew-hater, spreading his false anti-Semitic conspiracy theories to millions of followers on his social media platforms.”
Hadid has compared Zionists to Adolf Hitler and terrorists and how they treat Palestinians.
“Hadid recently navigated from Israel-bashing to promoting Nazi-like conspiracy theories about Jewish power when he openly stated, ‘Israel and the Jews control the media,'” the group said.
Minadeo II, leader of the Goyim Defense League, is responsible for dropping the banner in Los Angeles that reads “Kanye is right about the Jews,” the group said.
“Minadeo is organizing and directing his followers to drop thousands of anti-Semitic pamphlets across America blaming Jews for everything from 9/11 to COVID to the war in Ukraine,” said StopAntisemitism.org.
Last year, a trio of famous women won the 2021 Anti-Semite of the Year award.
British pop star Dua Lipa, US Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene and Ben & Jerry’s CEO Anuradha Mittal have all been subpoenaed for disparaging the Jewish nation of Israel.
West, Hadid and Minadeo were not immediately available for comment.
