Kanye West could be banned from entering Australia to meet his new wife’s family because of his praise for Hitler and his anti-Semitic rants, government officials said Wednesday.
The rapper reportedly intends to fly with Bianca Censors to his hometown of Melbourne next week to reunite with his clan.
As we first reported, the couple tied the knot in a private ceremony earlier this month without filing a marriage certificate. It’s unclear if Kanye got a visa for the supposed trip or even applied for one.
However, Australia’s Minister for Education, Jason Claire, says that if Kanye applies for a visa, he could be rejected. The Land Down Under has a history of refusing people with anti-Semitic beliefs.
Clare told Nine Network TV … “I expect that if he applies he will have to go through the same process and answer the same questions” as anyone who has expressed such opinions.
Kanye West travels across the country with white nationalist Nick Fuentes
As you know… Kanye recently launched a bizarre anti-Jewish campaign, praising Hitler and Nazis. He was seen hanging out with a notorious white nationalist Nick Fuentes.
Ye was suspended from Twitter after posting an image of a swastika merged with the Star of David. Kanye also went live on air with an alt-right conspiracy theorist Alex Jones for his show “Infowars”. Among other things, Kanye said, “I love Hitler.”
Given his rhetoric, it appears Kanye is having an uphill battle with Australian Jewish groups, who have already called for him to be denied entry in anticipation of any visa applications.
Australian Jewish Community Co-Lead Executive Council Pierre Wertheim told Sky News… “We have argued that this particular individual does not meet the character test and that it would be in the national interest not to grant him a visa and we have set out our reasons in detail. .”
Minister of Immigration André Gilles will make the final decision on whether to let Kanye into the country, if that happens.
