The Philadelphia Eagles NFL team is condemning the social media posts of their player DeSean Jackson, who, on Monday, shared antisemitic conspiracy theories on his Instagram. In a statement obtained by this reporter and posted to Twitter, the team deemed the posts “offensive, harmful, and absolutely appalling,” and said they are “committed to continuing to have productive and meaningful conversations with DeSean.”

The statement, however, outraged many for not even mentioning the word antisemitism. StopAntisemitism.org, a popular watchdog group exposing Jew hatred, wrote on Twitter of the Team’s statement, “Desean Jackson QUOTED HITLER to his 1.4 MILLION #instagram followers. He is promoting a genocidal MANIAC who murdered 6 million Jews. He THEN reiterated ANOTHER quote that Jews are taking over the world. HE DESERVES TO BE FIRED!”

The team’s Owner Jeffrey Lurie and it’s General Manager Howie Roseman are both Jewish. Roseman didn’t respond to this reporter’s request for comment on the situation and the story will be update if and when one is received.

The Eagles’ Public Relations Director Brett Strohsacker also didn’t respond to a follow-up to the team’s statement immediately. This reporter asked the following questions to Strohsacker and will update the story if and when a response is provided:

“Does the team recognize these posts as anti-Semitic? I know some of your team’s leadership are Jewish, as am I. Are you at all considering firing Jackson for espousing such hate?”

Jackson’s post, along with several other posts, remained on his social media page. That includes his posts lauding notorious antisemite Louis Farrakhan.

The hateful excerpt posted Monday, attributed to genocidist Adolf Hitler, said, “because the White Jews knows that the Negroes are the Real Children of Israel and to keep Americas secret the Jews will blackmail America.”

“They will extort America, their plan for wold domination won’t work if the Negroes know who they were,” it continued, “The white citizens of America will be terrified to know that all this time they’ve been mistreating and discriminating and lynching the Children of Israel.”

Jackson later clarified that many wrongly interpreted his posts as messages of hate towards the Jewish community. He then pointed to the one portion of the quote that referred to white Jews’ “plan for world domination”, saying it “won’t work if the Negroes know who they were.”

He also issued an apology video recognizing that Hitler was bad and saying he “didn’t mean it to the extent you guys took it” and just wanted to “uplift African Americans.”

Trump: Tanks to Ukraine could escalate to use of ‘NUKES’

Published

Former President Donald Trump stated bluntly on Truth Social,  “FIRST COME THE TANKS, THEN COME THE NUKES. Get this crazy war ended, NOW. So easy to do!”

Trump was referring to the escalation of war in Ukraine. He, like many other commentators and lawmakers, are warning that the decision to continue sending weapons – and now tanks – could potentially lead to the use of “nuclear weapons.”

It’s mission creep and it’s dangerous, they say.

Why? Because Russian President Valdimir Putin has indicated in two different speeches that he would use nuclear weapons to defend Russia, if needed. Those warnings are not just bluster but a very real possibility.

And the escalation of war is visible.

Russia launched 55 missiles strikes across Ukraine Thursday, leaving 11 dead. The strikes come one day after the United States and Germany agreed to send tanks to Ukraine in an effort to aide the country. 47 of the 55 missiles were shot down according to Ukraine’s Air Force command.

Eleven lives were lost and another 11 were injured additionally leaving 35 buildings damaged in the wake of the attacks. According to The New York Times, Denys Shmyhal, said in a post on Telegram. “The main goal is energy facilities, providing Ukrainians with light and heat,” he said.

Ukraine is now demanding that they need F-16 fighter jets. In a post on twitter Ukrainian lawmaker, Oleksiy Goncharenko said, “Missiles again over Ukraine. We need F16.”

The US has abstained from sending advanced jets in the chances that a volatile decision could foster more dangerous attacks like former President Trump’s post on Truth referred to. If the US did authorize the decision to lend Ukraine the F-16 jets Netherlands’ foreign minister, Wopke Hoekstra, would be willing to supply them. According to The New York Times, Hoekstra told Dutch lawmakers, “We are open-minded… There are no taboos.”

F-16 fighter jets are complex to work on, they are not the average aircraft that can be learned in a matter of weeks. It can take months for pilots to learn how to fly these birds. European and US officials have the concern that Ukrainian forces could potentially use the jets to fly into Russian airspace and launch attacks on Russian soil.

Western allies are trying to avoid such a provocation, because that could lead to nuclear warfare in reference to what Putin has said he would do to defend his country.
