Rabbi Menken discussed the recent comments made by Kanye West. He also explained why there has been a surge in antisemitism, addressed Ben Shapiro’s role as a mainstream orthodox media figure, explained why his organization is so crucial for the frum community to combat leftist Jews who are hurting our cause, and much more.

When asked if Kanye’s hatred is just a fringe belief, Rabbi Menken said: “They are for sure not just fringe beliefs, there’s a large segment…when the Monsey machete attacker and the Jersey City gunman and 95% of the random violence…in Brooklyn is coming from that community, it is obvious that there is incitement going on within that community.”

He added, “It’s not as if what Kanye has to say is radically different than Farrakhan and Ilhan Omar.”

Sounds like Frankfort am Main 1936! Maybe a second home in Israel rather than in Miami or Monticello?

What’s the connection between Krazy Kanye and “leftist Jews”? There is NONE. This antasemit was a STAR in Trumpworld, and was invited to the Trump White House and on the campaign trail! Come on. THINK!
