(Watch) In Germany, Macklemore Exploits the Holocaust to Rationalize His Antisemitism


Rapper Macklemore is turning into quite the antisemite.

In front of a crowd in Germany he used the Holocaust to rationalize his anti-Israel, pro Palestinian ranting. Benjamin Haggerty is without a doubt the worst kind of uneducated American export to shoot his mouth off abroad.

Macklemore must understand what he’s doing, particularly in Germany, where the country is extra sensitive about a new generation of Nazis. Macklemore is trying to give license to them to hate Jews again. Nice work.

How does this guy even have an audience any more? His singles were hits in 2012. Since then, he’s been meaningless. His current single, also anti-Israel, called “Hind’s Hall,” has been sales flop with just 41,000 copies from streaming. But 41,000 is dangerous enough.

Macklemore’s hate for Israel is so strong that he attacks both CUFI– Christians United for Israel — and AIPAC, a Jewish organization dedicated to better understanding between ht US and Israel.
