Eagles Star DeSean Jackson Accused of Anti-Semitism After Promoting Farrakhan, Posting Quotes Supposedly From Hitler
Jackson claimed people took the posts the wrong way.
Philadelphia Eagles star DeSean Jackson found himself in quite a controversy after a slew of Instagram posts showed him promoting notorious anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan and posting a quote attributed to Adolf Hitler.
It began when he posted a picture on his Instagram, but deleted it. He reposted it this morning with a caption insisting he does not hate the Jewish community.
The Daily Caller said the quote comes from the book The Hidden Treasure That Lies in Plain Sight 4: The Day of the Lord and the End of America by Jeremy Shorter.
PhillyVoice.com said its research found the quote from Dennine Barnett’s book Jerusalem “as the font in Jackson’s post matches text in that book.” The website noted that “Barnett attributes the quote to a book by historian Robert Edwin Herzstein, ‘The Nazis World War II,’ published in July 1980.”
The highlighted portion of the page says (Hitler said is not highlighted):
Hitler said, “because the [sic] white Jews knows [sic] that the Negroes are the real children of Israel and to keep Americas [sic] secret the Jews will blackmail America.
The [sic] will extort America, their plan for world domination won’t work if the Negroes know who they were.
The white citizens of America will be terrified to know that all this they’ve been mistreating and discriminating and lynching the Children of Israel.
They will fear God will destroy them as he destroyed Egypt for doing the same thing. So the Elite, the Illuminati keeps this a secret at all cost.
After I die I will one day cause World War 3 just by this message which will be like planting a seed in a people minds until it sprouts once they nurture that seed and seek more truth and learn Hitler was right.
Then he posted a picture with an emphasis on one paragraph, but it doesn’t help much since we know the authors attributed the quote to Hitler and he was talking about the Jews.
Jackson praised Farrakhan on Saturday and Monday. The post from Saturday is a screenshot of Farrakhan’s Independence Day speech. He slammed Bill Gates and Dr. Anthony Fauci for pushing a coronavirus vaccine, claiming the men want to “depopulate the earth.”
Farrakhan told his followers to “not take their medication.” In fact, he wants them to ignore “vaccines and medications developed by Western scientists.”
The Anti-Defamation League of Philadelphia demanded an apology from Jackson for promoting Farrakhan. I don’t think they mentioned the Hitler posts:
“Deeply troubling to see @DeSeanJackson10 promoting the message of notorious antisemite and NOI leader Louis Farrakhan. We have reached out to the @Eagles about this and call on Jackson to immediately apologize,” ADL Philadelphia said on social media. “We urge Mr. Jackson to use his platform as a professional athlete to promote unity and positivity, rather than the divisive words of a bigot.”
Jackson claimed people took his posts out of context:
“Anyone who feels I have hate towards the Jewish community took my post the wrong way,” he posted on his Instagram story along with the highlighted passage that was attributed to Hitler. “I have no hatred in my heart toward no one!! Equality. Equality.” At the end, he added raised fist emojis in multiple skin tones.
The Eagles released a statement:
