Eagles Star DeSean Jackson Challenged By Holocaust Survivor After Sharing Anti-Semitic Quote

Eagles star DeSean Jackson was challenged by a 94-year-old survivor of the Holocaust to visit Nazi concentration camps after tweeting out a vile anti-semitic smear.

As The Daily Wire reports:

A 94-year-old Holocaust survivor invited DeSean Jackson to visit Nazi concentration camps after the Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver posted an anti-Semitic quote to Instagram on Monday.

Edward Mosberg penned an open letter to Jackson on Tuesday after Jackson shared a quote alleging a Jewish conspiracy to oppress black people. According to ESPN, the since-deleted quote that Jackson wrongly attributed to Adolf Hitler claimed white Jews “will blackmail America. [They] will extort America, their plan for world domination won’t work if the Negroes know who they were.” Jackson also expressed admiration for Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.

Mosberg’s response was shared by the official Twitter account of From The Depths, a millennial-run organization that “aims to preserve the memory of the Holocaust and to give a name to those who were brutally murdered,” according to its website. Mosberg is an honorary chairman of the organization, the name of which is a reference to Psalm 130.

“Almost my entire family was murdered by the German Nazis during the Holocaust,” Mosberg began. “I survived multiple German Nazi death camps, including the Mauthausen concentration camp, my late wife was a survivor of Auschwitz-Birkenau.”

The Philadelphia Eagles were then forced to release a statement about Jackson’s horrendous tweet:

Well, he does have a big mouth and can talk trash. He’s good at that too. Not much more that I can think of right now.

Hmmmm…let’s say the guy were white and expressing admiration for a top KKK figure. He would have been shown the door before the Eagles even posted their apology – and never picked up a football again.

Yep! He would have been gone in a heart beat if he was white. On the other hand, I would hope he takes up the offer to visit death camps and learn the difference between REALITY and Social Media trash. Might be nice if the Eagle’s team management told him he needed to do that before any ‘meaningful’ conversation could continue. Perhaps, hopefully, . . .

How anyone can keep paying for going to games and/or seasons tickets to watch these wack-a-doodles run up and down a court/field is beyond my understanding. Stop paying to be insulted by these so called “athletes”.

Mike, I just had a reply blocked too. I dared to mention the irony of the situation and the fact that I absolutely “abandoned” the failed league quite some time ago.

Thoughtful people don’t watch the NFL after their Kaepernick cowardice; now they have compounded it with the “Black National Anthem,” whatever that divisive song is. When entertainment becomes more important than principle, the country is lost.

As a former pro football player I am very close to giving up on the NFL because of its policies. I don’t expect them to care but the league will perhaps have a marginal fan for whatever product they plan to field..but..much more craziness like this and I am gone forever. I am 67 and want to enjoy every day I have left on this planet.

Just one of the many reasons to not bother with the NFL.

Every time I read one of these verbal exchanges, I’m thankful that I had the wisdom to quit wasting my time. The instant I heard about that illiterate 49’er second stringer, I never watched another NFL game. I loved football and missed it for awhile but today, I find my radio more enjoyable and I have more time for family. For now, I still enjoy college football, especially my alma mater, but it’s not the same.

So it’s not okay to say unkind things about black people, but it’s okay for black people to say unkind things about everybody else? That sort of sounds like racism to me. If these people think the American people will put up with his unfair narrative, I think they will have a surprise in November. I hope so anyway because these people are very dangerous and if they win in November the country will be destroyed.

DeSean Jackson? Who cares. Doesn’t he have something to do with that soon to be bankrupt football league here in the U.S.?
Thought so. Another American icon destroyed by the left…
ciao Jackson, NFL… it was a fun ride while it lasted. No more wasting my time with y’all from me. Oh, and I truly could care less about what Jackson has to say…

The people in the stands paying high prices for seats, concessions and all the sports apparel are the ones allowing this to continue. Giving money to people, organizations and causes so they can continue to insult you. Time to ask yourself what are you doing?
