Just when you thought 2020 couldn’t get any stranger, rapper Ice Cube is now sharing anti-Semitic conspiracy theories on Twitter.
On Wednesday afternoon the rapper, who has been extremely active in recent weeks on Twitter, shared a black cube conspiracy theory which has historically implied that Jewish ‘elites’ worship Saturn as part of their satanic ritualism.
Conspiracy theories allow their proponents to flatter themselves into thinking base prejudices are but marks of intellectual sophistication. Even so, “cubes are symbols of Jewish control” reaches a new frontier of stupid when offered by a guy best known as … Ice Cube. https://t.co/icds6YCiLu

The red is supposedly highlighting the cube in the center of the Star of David which references the theory that the cult of Saturn symbolized by a Black Cube dominates the world's major religions including Judaism. pic.twitter.com/7UR33tU0tR

Cube’s tweets come a few days after he shared an image of a mural that was removed from a wall in London in 2012 because many believed it to be anti-Semitic.
Via Jerusalem Post
In the tweet, the image, which depicts several men sitting around a Monopoly board resting on the backs of naked black and brown men, is captioned: “All we have to do is stand up and their little game is over.”
The image by Los Angeles artist Mear One was painted on a building in London’s East End in 2012. It was removed after complaints,
hey, just to flag that the image of the mural you've shared is quite anti-semitic. I wrote about it here a couple of years back. I expect you hadn't clocked the connotations – but hopefully this helps. stay strong, and in solidarity x https://t.co/qTpgTaM1xy

People voiced their displeasure with Ice Cube’s tweets.
Sadly, no. This is his second antisemitic post in a week. Conspiracy theories of Jewish global domination are textbook antisemitism. https://t.co/2EACMnehVK

Antisemitism sucks even more than usual when it comes from someone you once respected. Not a good day… https://t.co/tqnpLPlT3H

Whether J.K. Rowling or Ice Cube, I'm really noticing how celebrities are taking up a lot of space with absolute nonsense at this critical moment in history. They could be amplifying organizers, mobilizing resources, but no. Wealthy narcissists must not derail this movement.

Honestly, I’m just glad it was Ice Cube who tweeted strange antisemitic conspiracy theories instead of Ice T because I cannot live without Law and Order in this quarantine 🧊🧊🧊
