A resolution denouncing antisemitism as well as Ye, better known as Kanye West, and other conservative individuals who have made antisemitic remarks was unanimously endorsed by the Republican National Committee (RNC), Fox News informed.
On the penultimate day of the RNC annual winter conference, which was held this year at a posh beachside hotel in Orange County, southern California, the resolution was accepted by voice vote.
The motion was introduced by Shawn Steel, a California national committee member and former state party chair, who claimed he didn’t want a few vocal antisemites to speak for the whole GOP.
The resolution was passed two months after former president Donald Trump had Thanksgiving dinner at his Mar-a-Lago property in Palm Beach, Florida, with Ye and white nationalist Nick Fuentes. Days after Trump announced his bid for president in 2024, they met.
Trump is not mentioned in the resolution, which instead expressly denounces Ye and Fuentes for making antisemitic remarks.
The resolution would denounce Ye, who says he will run for president in 2024, for regularly making “shameful” remarks that are “contrary to American and Republican beliefs,” according to the proposal’s draft phrasing.
Ye stated that the Jewish media has led the public to believe that the world has never benefited from anything the Nazis or Hitler have contributed. He said that the people must cease constantly disparaging the Nazis.
An early draft of the resolution states that it would formally reject, denounce, reprimand, and oppose any instances of bigotry, racism, ethnic prejudice, religious intolerance, antisemitism, antisemitic remarks, and any antisemitic elements attempting to infiltrate the Republican Party.
Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan are two more Democratic members of Congress who are singled out for criticism of Israel and links to antisemitic figures.
