A week after making headlines for an interview with Fox News host Tucker Carlson, rapper Kanye West was kicked off Twitter and Instagram for alleged antisemitic posts. 

Nationally syndicated radio host Joe Pags said Monday that it’s weird and unfair that West was booted off social media. 

According to Deadline, Meta said Instagram deleted content from West’s Instagram page and placed a restriction on the account. However, specifics on what content was removed or the rules that were violated were not revealed.

“I’m a bit sleepy tonight but when I wake up, I’m going death con 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE,” said West, also known as Ye. “The funny thing is I actually can’t be Anti-Semitic because black people are actually Jews also You guys have toyed with me and tried to blackball anyone whoever opposes your agenda.”

“The thing I don’t understand is if somebody is going to be suspended or banned, you shouldn’t be allowed to talk about them,” Pags said. “Mike Lindell trended again over the weekend. I don’t know why but he was one of the top trends, but he’s not allowed to defend himself.” 

Pags said he’s all for people talking about West’s comments but allowing West to respond accordingly if he chooses to do so. 

“I have no clue what death con 3 means,” Pags added. “But again, he has a right to say it as long as he’s not doing it. The First Amendment was actually put into law to protect hate speech. It was put into place to protect speech that people don’t like.”

Howie Carr: Liberal Media ‘Simply Won’t Discuss’ Elon Musk’s ‘Twitter Files’

“As expected, Democrat operatives with a press pass are taking the easy way out. They simply won’t discuss it.”

Elon Musk released documents alleging collusion between his newly purchased social media platform — Twitter — and officials with the Presidential campaign of now-President Joe Biden to suppress unfavorable tweets in regards to the President’s son, Hunter, and his laptop. Radio host Howie Carr said the files break up arguments made by media members for years.

Calling it the “Friday news dump of the century”, Carr lamented the lack of coverage given to the release of the documents.

“Elon Musk’s ‘Twitter Files’ dismantles years of the fake news narrative,” Carr said. “The ‘laptop from hell’ is real and the Russia hoax was just that, a hoax. As expected, Democrat operatives with a press pass are taking the easy way out. They simply won’t discuss it. The few that dare bring it up are trying to label it a ‘nothingburger’. A ‘snoozefest’. Nothing to see here, folks. Move along.

“For instance, CNN’s Christine Romans — one of the lucky ones that didn’t get the boot last week — wants us to know how dopey and boring the whole story is,” Carr said before playing a clip of Romans saying former President Donald Trump wants to “throw out” the constitution because of alleged collusion between “big tech” and the government.

“Christine and her fellow travelers in the media can’t handle the truth. We can see for ourselves what the comrades handled at the old platform.”

Carr then played a clip of Romans saying The Poynter Institute saying the “Twitter Files” should be filed under “M for meh”.

“I have a better idea,” Carr countered. “Let’s file this one under M for mischievous, meddlesome, and misconduct.”

Ramsey adding a new personality comes on the heels of the radio host telling stations they must know how to sell and to whom in an inflationary economy.

“Every budget that everybody that’s possibly going to buy an ad from any of us is getting tighter and tighter,” Ramsey said (h/t Inside Radio). “They’re looking for anything that is superfluous, anything that is extra, any fat, anything that’s not ROI-ing.”
