Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

A 94-year-old Holocaust survivor has invited NFL star DeSean Jackson to visit Auschwitz, where an estimated 1.1 million people were killed. The invitation comes after the Philadelphia Eagles' wide receiver shared a series of anti-Semitic Instagram posts, including a quote falsely attributed to Adolf Hitler.

... how the hell does one graduate from Berkeley and remain this ignorant? ...

It's an enigma.

Maybe --- smart people sometimes do stupid things?

I dunno... I'm grasping at straws here.

Thanks, I had forgotten about that aspect of this.

Berkeley may have lowered their educational requirements because of, well, sports.

It would be the first time I've seen that an esteemed educational institution has apparently sold their soul to ESPN.

Less concerning is DeSean's ignorant post which he's apologized for and is taking steps to learn from it. More concerning is Stephen Jackson (NBA) support, defense and extension of the post! Is he Kanye's target demographic? Wow.

Most concerning to me is the apparent elevation of sports-oriented people to the level of leadership.

I mean, please explain to me the correlation of handling a football and the ability to comment upon the grave social issues facing us.

Stephen Jackson is defending the post?

Sad for him because it is going to have very negative consequences for him. I don't want that for anyone. So Mr. Jackson, apologize, volunteer for some organization that support racial quality and move on with your life...or watch your live crumble. Most Americans do not respect anti-semitic idiots no matter how well they play football. It's up to you stupid, you can still salvage your career but if you don't take my advice it is over for you. Truthhurts. Not my screen name just an expression of the truth.

Stephen, no relation to DeSean. Indeed he did. He jumped right in. He's since issued a confusing "apology."

The concept of owners owning sports teams and players is just plain systemic racism and must be destroyed now. Playing games in expensive taxpayer supported arenas is just criminal to boot.

Seriously mutant?

The subject is what an NFL player said and what another relevant person said.

Not your poorly timed hate of people who own sports teams.

I feel that sports and team competition as a national pastime (the media is super saturated with this diversion) is merely training for the USA warlike posture in the world. What the heck are you talking about timing? Elaborate please.

This whole anti semite thing is just weirdly timed during our recent national magnifying glass upon the plight of the continued black peoples injustice. Seems like made up faux diamonds that cannot cut glass, digg?

In my industry we purged the master slave concept and language regarding electronics. Why can't sports get rid of "owners" of players and teams. I played ball as a kid without an owner and i sucked.

Teams are owned by *gasp* owners same as a store is the property of someone.

Subject remains how the hell did a UCB grad not realize Hitler isn't a credible source of information?

#19 | Posted by Tor at 2020-07-10 01:28 AM | Reply

Are you a child? Most sports grads are *really* not getting an education since they have been scouted talent by the *owners*. Seems like *owners* are just looking for the best they can buy on the *free* market I'll say.

The owners should just recruit from the slave ships instead of educational institutions. It's an insult to higher education.

It it now normal at UCB for Black people to be taught Jews are the enemy?

Depends. Do they let Alt-Right speakers come to UCB and preach their hate?

No way. Only your fellow far left despicables preaching hate are allowed to speak at Berkeley.
