Kanye (Ye) West walked out 20 minutes into the 2-hour-long show.

Independent journalist and YouTuber, Tim Pool, had a trio of controversial guests on his live-stream show on Monday night — Kanye West, who now goes by Ye, right-wing provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos, and white supremacist Holocaust-denier Nick Fuentes who hosts a YouTube show.

It was quite the cast of characters.

West has been making headlines for weeks for his remarks reflecting a tired, old conspiracy theory that Jewish people are somehow running the world behind the scenes and are “canceling” people. He’s been complaining in interviews about the professionals he’s interacted with in his business and personal life that are Jewish accusing them of acting almost in concert to make his life difficult. Ye said as much when he was on Lex Fridman’s podcast in late October about the doctor who diagnosed him with bipolar disorder. He also tweeted that he was going “death con 3” on “Zionists.”

Fuentes has been toxic in many right-wing circles for his unapologetic racism and antisemitism, Holocaust denial, white supremacy, and sexism, but has still managed to rub shoulders on occasion with some in the MAGA crowd. He’s also, unfortunately, amassed quite a following of way-too-online young men who are called the “Groyper Army” or “Groypers.”

Benny Johnson, who has a show on NewsMax posted a comprehensive thread of who Fuentes is in his own words which is far too long to post in this article. Here’s the first in the thread:

The third member of the trio is the one that brought the other two together, a controversial figure in his own right, Milo Yiannopoulos.

Milo — who is apparently Ye’s campaign manager now — has spoken to the Jewish Journal in 2019 about Jewish identity and his “tortured relationship” with his mother, a Jew of German descent.

It’s like the opening of a bad joke, “A black man, a white supremacist, and an ex-gay Jewish man walk into a bar…”

In this case, they walked into a studio for an interview and quickly left when things got just a tiny bit tense.

Pool said from the beginning that he wanted to start the show talking about the news before getting into the more controversial topics. Specifically, Pool wanted to talk about the dinner West had with former President Donald Trump where he brought Fuentes along.

For the first fifteen minutes, Pool allowed West to speak — largely uninterrupted.

West said that the dinner with Trump had been scheduled a month ago — before West’s antisemitic ranting began — but it was rescheduled until after the midterms and Trump’s announcement that he was running for President in 2024. West also confirmed that Trump didn’t know Fuentes beforehand.

It didn’t take long for West to start his antisemitic ranting. He said that Rahm Emanuel advised Obama and Jared Kushner advised Trump — both Emanuel and Kushner are Jewish.

“You went right into the antisemite thing,” said Pool. “If you start bringing this up, you’re going to ask my opinion on it, I’m going to disagree with you.”

“I don’t care about your opinion,” replied West.

Later, West went on a weird claim that “Jewish people allowed” Obama to meet with the antisemitic leader of the Nation of Islam, Louis Farrakhan in 2005. He then spoke about how he was being targeted and canceled.

“I think they’ve been extremely unfair to you,” said Pool empathetically.

“Who is ‘they’, though?” asked West. “We can’t say who ‘they’ is, can we?”

“Corporate press,” replied Pool.

“It is ‘them,’ though, isn’t it?” jumped in Fuentes.

“No, it’s not,” said Pool emphatically.

“What do you mean it’s not?” West asked. He then walked out of the show.

Pool’s reaction on social media to the entire incident was a “lol” tweet.

But, some interesting things were noted in that 21 minutes of the show.

Amber Athey, the editor of The Spectator U.S., was supposed to observe the livestream off-camera on Monday night but left after West said that he preferred only people around the table be present.

Pool started the show by asking Ye about his recent dinner with Trump, and Ye explained how a number of other “canceled” commentators had got in touch after his “deathcon 3 on Jewish people” tweet. Ye revealed that Alex Jones’s producer had connected him with Yiannopoulos, who in turn brought Fuentes into the fold. Unfortunately, it didn’t take long for Ye to launch into a diatribe about the Jews controlling politics and the media. “Rahm Emanuel was next to Obama and Jared Kushner was right next to Trump,” he stressed. Pool pushed back respectfully, but Ye threatened to leave the show on two separate occasions before finally walking out at the twenty-one-minute mark…
…The Timcast staff seemed torn on how to feel about the entire encounter. Some thought Pool had pressed too hard on Ye too early in the interview. Others thought Ye was being a baby. Overall, they seemed disappointed that Ye didn’t stay longer and have a real and full-throated discussion. Pool recounted Yiannopoulos’s previous appearance on the show and wondered aloud if Yiannopoulos was deploying Ye to sabotage Trump for “revenge.” This evening, the only presidential campaign Ye seemed interested in sabotaging was his own.

Before the show, Pool told her that it would probably be the “biggest show” he’s ever done and it would “get us in trouble” and “opens up a whole bunch of risk,” but he said he wanted to get answers about what happened between Trump and these guys.

“Am I going to make this a wag-of-the-finger moment at them, or are we going to try and understand what’s going on behind the scenes? And that’s the challenge,” said Pool to Athey. “Do I make this my opportunity to virtue-signal about how how much I despise their views? Or do I say, ‘Look, I don’t agree with what you’ve said. I think it’s awful, in fact. But we’re here to learn about what’s going on.’”

Pool says he took heat for “platforming” the trio, but he gave them an opportunity to explain what happened at the dinner with Trump ouside of the headlines and wasn’t going to let West or Fuentes get away with antisemitism without being challenged.

This is what free speech looks like — let them speak and openly challenge them on their ideas. Sunlight is the best disinfectant. If they walk, it only makes them look bad.
