Kanye West’s Boldest, Most Memorable Quotes From The Joe Rogan Podcast
Joe Rogan finally hosted Kanye Wets on his podcast, and it did not disappoint. Fans have been waiting for this to happen for a long time, and hoped it would provide a platform for West to clear and elaborate on some of his statements. That’s what happened, and of course, Mr West made a few other noteworthy statements on the three-hour episode.
Scroll through some of them:
“We’re All On Medication”
We’re all on medication right now. Did you use toothpaste with fluoride today? It blocks your penial gland. And they put children on it. We put our kids on it. It’s inside the deodorants we use. It’s all these things to create a disconnect to God, to serve that. Are you serving man, or are you serving the one and only master?”
“I’m Christian, so I’m pro-life Pro-Life”
“People saw this clip of me crying. Some people didn’t know what I was crying about. I was crying about that there is a possible chance that Kim and I didn’t make the family that we have today. That’s my most family-friendly way to word that. The idea of it just tears me up inside, that I was a part of a culture that promotes this kind of thing. One of the major statistics on the subject of life is that the greatest advocates for the A-word [abortion] are men from ages 31-37. That’s how old I was. I felt like I was too busy. My dad felt like he was too busy for me. We have a culture of that … In our culture, we’re doped up, and psyched out, and made to kill our children. We have to decouple the conversation of Planned Parenthood and women’s choice. I’m Christian, so I’m pro-life. When I go into office, I’m not changing laws because I realize we live in an imperfect world and an imperfect society. What I will be presenting is a Plan A. We’ve already started working on a Plan A to change the connotation of orphanages, to change the connotation of foster care.”
“There were 210,000 deaths due to COVID in America. Everywhere you go, you see someone with a mask on. With A, the A word, A culture — I’ll say it one time, with abortion culture — there are 1,000 Black children aborted a day. Daily. We are in genocide. More Black children since February than people have died of COVID. And everyone wears a mask. So it’s a matter of where are we turning a blind eye to?”

“God is calling me to take this position”
“There’s people who say to me: ‘Well, music is bigger, or more influential, than politics, or celebrities are more influential,’” he said. “I thought of it like if I was a pastor of a 100,000-person church, but then I was also a captain, a sailor, and then we went to war and I said: ‘I’m gonna man this ship that has 1000 people on it because God is calling me to take this position’.
“Even though I’m the pastor for however big my audience is in hip-hop, in music or just as an influencer or celebrity, [as] a dad and a husband in my house – there couldn’t be a better time to put a visionary in the captain’s chair. And that’s not to say we haven’t had visionaries before. I’m not here to down Trump, to down Biden – I’m just here to express why God has called me to take this position.”
“I had the virus”
“Why did I register so late to run for president? COVID. I had the virus, and I was sitting, quarantined in my house, and my cousin texted me about being prepared to run for president. I just completely put it off to the side ’cause I was like shivering, having the shakes, taking hot showers, eating soup. I don’t think it was that bad — I think it was a mild case. [But] it threw everybody’s plans off.”
“We’re given Black History Month and we take that like it’s some gift to us”
“Most Black people, we don’t know where we came from. We think we came from slaves. We don’t know our bloodline. We’re given Black History Month and we take that like it’s some gift to us. No, it’s programming to us. Racism doesn’t end until we get to a point where we stop having to put the word ‘Black’ in front of it, because it’s like we’re putting the rim a little bit lower for ourselves … We shouldn’t have to have a special box, a special month. What they show during Black History Month is us getting hosed down, reminding us that we were slaves. What if we had, Remember When I Cheated on You Month? How does that make you feel? It makes you feel depleted and defeated.”
