Democrats Jeffries, Clark, Aguilar rebuke latest antisemitic comments by Ye

In a joint statement issued by incoming Democratic leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY), incoming Democratic Whip Katherine Clark (D-MA) and incoming Democratic Caucus Chair Pete Aguilar (D-CA), the trio rebuked the latest comments made by Ye (Kanye West).

The comments which reflect anti-Semitism were made in a recent interview with Alex Jones.

The trio have resented the comments in a joint statement.

“The promotion of antisemitism and hatred against the Jewish community by anyone is unacceptable and unconscionable,” the statement affirms.

“House Democrats have and will always reject intolerance in any form.”

“The words, actions and baseless conspiracy theories viciously spewed by the individual formerly known as Kanye West are detestable, historically inaccurate and sickening. Hitler represents pure evil and he must forever be castigated and banished to the dustbin of history. The Holocaust happened, six million Jews were murdered and it constituted an unthinkable crime against humanity.”

The statement further encourages love, rather than hate among the people of America.

“We must all come together to end antisemitism and other forms of hatred, and promote greater tolerance and understanding in America.”
