Kanye West had agreed to buy the social platform Parler for an undisclosed amount after he was kicked off Twitter in October for making antisemitic remarks.
After West's most recent remarks on Alex Jones, praising Hitler and the Nazis, Parler abruptly announced that the purchase had been called off.
Parler's parent company released the following statement:
The company has mutually agreed with Ye to terminate the intent of sale of Parler. This decision was made in the interest of both parties in mid-November. Parler will continue to pursue future opportunities for growth and the evolution of the platform for our vibrant community.
Twitter had restored West's account under Elon Musk's leadership. Musk had even reached out privately to West, but West responded by posting a swastika mixed with the Star of David, along with Elon Musk's private messages.
So, West was kicked back off of Twitter for a policy violation.
West has also been dropped by numerous corporate sponsors for his antisemitic stance.
The man has certainly jumped off the deep end. It's easy to think that there's no road back from all of this for Kanye West, but let's not forget that the antisemitism West is spouting is becoming pretty common in America.
For example, remember that time Whoopi Goldberg got a two-week time out for her comments about the Holocaust?
And then there's Nick Cannon, who is still hosting The Masked Singer and has expressed the exact same views as West:
Heck, Berkley created Jew-free zones on its campus not long ago:
Antisemites should all be roundly condemned regardless of their political leanings, but only the right cancels and condemns its antisemites.
The road back for West will be as a leftist.
On the positive side, we can all take a moment to laugh at Bill Gates, who needs to eat a healthy dose of crow for his comments about Parler. It turns out they rejected the Holocaust denier.
