Roger Goodell shamefully silent about DeSean Jacksons Hitler posts – New York Post

You can come out, now, Roger!

In his continuing role as the NFL’s Neville Chamberlain — the British prime minister who appeased Nazi Germany until it was too late to prevent World War II — Roger Goodell continues to pander to the bad acts at the risk of imperiling the good and welfare — and value — of the NFL.

Goodell has proven he would rather offend the NFL’s most devoted, fair-minded fans than the league’s most offensive players.

What was Goodell’s position on Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson’s astonishingly stupid, historically fabricated, hateful posts about Jews plotting to enslave blacks — as per the thoughts of the considerable Louis Farrakhan extremist wing of Black Lives Matter?

We don’t know. Goodell didn’t have the courage to attach his name to an NFL “statement” condemning Jackson. The NFL’s “statement” seemed to have been dropped from a cloud. Read between the lines, Goodell may as well have said, “Leave me out of this.”

He has, however, eagerly attached his name to statements decrying anti-black racism.

Meanwhile he shows up for photos with his minister of social justice — the N-wording, vulgar, women-degrading rapper Jay-Z, whose lyrics he still hasn’t dared read aloud in public. And you’ve seen what the Super Bowl halftime has become under Goodell, not to mention those “good investment” PSLs.

But following the flagrant, sickening anti-Semitism of a player, he hides.

As for Jackson, he showed up a fool — what would have been his “first” NFL touchdown was lost when he prematurely dropped the ball at the 1-yard line, and he has cost his teams multiple times by showboating — and he’ll go out one.

He has flashed Crips’ gang signs on the field, and in 2014 reported $250,000 in cash, plus jewelry, a gun and ammo stolen from his home. The gun no doubt was to protect himself from marauding Jews.

His apology this week was absurd. He claimed he’s not hateful toward Jews but was merely trying to “enlighten my people.” Enlighten them to what? His appreciation and admiration of Farrakhan and Hitler? A Jewish conspiracy to destroy blacks?

Meantime, those quotes Jackson misidentified as Hitler’s made no sense to repeat under any conditions. After all, the Nazi party blamed Jews for bringing blacks into the country to “bastardize” their German “master race.” Or did Hitler lead the Black Nazi Lives Matter movement?

Naturally, the outrage was tempered, nothing close to what would have happened had a white player similarly attacked blacks. That player would have been “John Rockered” out of the league. But the pursuit for equality through inequality remains a fool’s mission.

The New York Times yesterday carried not a word about the still unraveling Jackson ugliness, but did have a guest column decrying racism in the NFL, written by former NFL receiver Donte Stallworth. The NYT withheld word that Stallworth resumed his NFL career after 24 days in jail after pleading guilty to DUI manslaughter of a Latino man.

One of the disturbing takes on the matter, as reader Joe Smith noted, was the ESPN headline referencing Jackson’s ignorant, insidious posts as “controversial” — as if they were a close call at home plate or a legitimate issue for debate.

Stephen Jackson, a former NBA malfeasant and now the foul-mouthed co-host of a Showtime program, defended DeSean Jackson as accurate, just short on the right words. That’s all. He also threw in his own traditional Hitler/Farrakhan-resurrected claims about Jews controlling all the money. I’ll never tell where I stash mine!

But now, if Showtime cans him he can blame Jews.

DeSean Jackson’s teammate, Marquise Goodwin, wondered why poor DeSean is a bigger issue than Black Lives Matter. I think he was serious.

And perhaps NFL TV announcers will soon explain Jackson as having had “off-the-field the field problems” then move along.

Not that the front-line, selectively blind equality crusaders such as Farrakhan, Goodell, Al Sharpton, Bill de  Blasio, Nike, Colin Kaepernick, LeBron James or either Jackson know — or care — but the preponderance of white blood shed during the 1960s Civil Rights movement was Jewish.

Two freedom marchers murdered by the KKK in 1964 were Michael Schwerner and Andrew Goodman, both Jews.

They died as martyrs to racial equality. Now they’re suckers to it.

Coast’s clear, Roger! Those uppity Jews won’t bother you, anymore. They know their place. You can come out now!

Good riddance to ’Skins, but for all the wrong reasons

Even as a kid, “Redskins” gave me the creeps. How could a mascot be based exclusively on a race? Before I knew what “racist” is, I knew this was racist.

I always avoided writing Redskins, choosing ’Skins or Washington instead. To much ridicule, I advocated changing the team’s name — as a matter of respect and dignity.

I never bought into that comparison/rationalization to Braves and Warriors, as both point to Native Americans’ noble traits. Cleveland Indians? It was too vague to create a conviction, though that clownish, grinning Indian logo was low.

Now, but for all the wrong reasons, Redskins will soon be gone. The forces of respect have nothing to do with it. It’s the combination of PC pressure and corporate dough that will do the trick.

FedEx, since 1999, has paid the ’Skins $205 million for corporate naming rights. Follow the money. As reader Joe Ascolese wrote, “It took the FedEx folks 21 years to realize the Redskins played in their name-sake stadium.”

The guard thinks about it a moment, then says, “Well, your father can stay, but you gotta go.”
