This Is The NFL: Football Star Claims Post Quoting Hitler & Farrakhan Was Taken ‘The Wrong Way’
NFL star, DeSean Jackson “apologized” and claim his post quoting Nazi propaganda attributed to Hilter was taken “the wrong way.”
The passage Jackson posted read:
“Hitler said, ‘because the white Jews knows [sic] that the Negros are the real Children of Israel and to keep Americas secret the Jews will black mail America.
‘The will extort America, their pan to 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 time they’ve been mistreating and discriminating and lynching Children of Israel.’”
The post was made on his Instagram stories below are screenshots…

I post a lot of things that are sent to me. I do not have hatred towards anyone. I really didn’t realize what this passage was saying. Hitler has caused terrible pain to Jewish people like the pain African-Americans have suffered. We should be together fighting anti-Semitism and racism. This was a mistake to post this and I truly apologize for posting it and sorry for any hurt I have caused.
Fox News reported:
Jackson then posted two pictures of noted anti-Semitic preacher Louis Farrakhan.
In one caption, Jackson wrote: “This man powerful I hope everyone got a chance to watch this !! Don’t be blinded. Know what’s going on.”
The Philadelphia Eagles have been here before in 2013 when a white wide receiver, Riley Cooper used the “n-word” during a confrontation with a security guard at a Kenny Chesney concert. The team did not cut him, the team fined him and encouraged him to undergo counseling.
The team has issued a strong statement condemning Jackson:

I’m not sure what part of quoting Hitler or Nazi propaganda Jackson thought was a good idea.
