Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson is being accused of anti-Semitism after sharing quotes attributed to Adolph Hitler on social media and voicing support for preacher Louis Farrakhan.

The 33-year-old former All-Pro posted pictures of highlighted selections from the book ‘Jerusalem‘ on Instagram.

‘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,’ read the passage.

‘”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 Philly Voice traced the quotes back to ‘The Nazis World War II,’ which was published in 1980. However, it is not certain that Hitler said any of those things.

In any case, many viewed Jackson’s post as anti-Semitic. 

‘DeSean’s comments were highly inappropriate, offensive and divisive and stand in stark contrast to the NFL’s values of respect, equality and inclusion,’ read a statement from a league spokesperson. ‘We have been in contact with the team which is addressing the matter with DeSean.’ 

‘We have spoken to DeSean Jackson about his social media posts,’ read a team statement. ‘Regardless of his intentions, the messages he shared were offensive, harmful, and absolutely appalling. They have no place in our society, and are not condoned or supported in any way by the organization.

‘We take these matters very seriously and are committed to continuing to have productive and meaningful conversations with DeSean, as well as all of our players and staff, in order to educate, learn, and grow.’

Former Eagles president Joe Banner warned of a double standard after Jackson’s post.

‘If a white player said anything about AA’s as outrageous as what Desean Jackson said about Jews tonight there would at least be a serious conversation about cutting him and a need for a team meeting to [discuss, which] would be totally appropriate,’ Banner wrote on Twitter. ‘Absolutely indefensible.’

Strangely, Jackson’s message was posted alongside another picture of the aforementioned quotes, which are attributed to Hitler.

He later offered another apology in a video he posted on Twitter: ‘I want to extend an apology. …I never want to be a race down or any people down. My post was definitely not intended for anybody of any race to feel any type of way, especially the Jewish community.’

Jackson went into further detail in his caption: ‘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.
