In a response to ESPN’s Kevin Seifert, former NFL RB Larry Johnson defending NFL star DeSean Jackson’s fake Hitler quote yesterday with a different fake anti-Semitic quote and tweeted, “is it still ‘anti-Semitic’ when a Jew says it?”:
.@Eagles WR DeSean Jackson posts a quote that says white Jews will “blackmail” and “extort” America. Then says, “I have no hatred in my heart toward no one.” At the very least, he is ignorant of what it means to be anti-Semitic. https://t.co/fahbdEyDOh

And, yes, it would be anti-Semitic even if a Jew said it, but in this case, it’s fake:
Yes, it would be, but this is also a fake quote, you anti-Semite. https://t.co/5Gnps95W8r

We doubt Johnson cares, though:
Yes, it is, Larry Johnson. But that's also a fake quote first spread by neo-nazis and white supremacists. You're supporting them and doing their work for them, and you might want to both think about that and learn how to use google. https://t.co/C4eB8L0WEU https://t.co/siUTriL8Jn

So, how many other NFL players hold this view?
Do any other football players want to weigh in? Maybe get it out of the way? https://t.co/P4JgUzrnin

Let’s get it all out in the open now:
The antisemites keep coming out of the woodwork, exposing not only their hatred and hypocrisy but their sheer ignorance and idiocy.
Let’s go, who’s next?
Keep em coming… ?? https://t.co/j4sVs3HIWF

As for Johnson, he not apologizing:
Don’t waste your retweet’s on me, I’m not apologizing.
