NFL player: ‘Jews market in pedophilia’

Another black athlete is using Twitter to promote antisemitic tropes.

This time it’s Larry Johnson, a former running back who played seven seasons for the Kansas City Chiefs until 2009, when he was suspended for “conduct detrimental to the club” for a series of tweets using homosexual slurs. He was later waived by the team.

On Sunday, Aug. 2, Johnson tweeted to his more than 147,000 followers that “African Americans overwhelmingly underperform in the area of: Human Trafficking, Sex Trafficking, Pedophilia, Ritualistic Child Torture, Perversion, Human Sacrifice/Murder . . . than the Jewish cabal @maxkellerman said don’t exist.”

The tweet is an apparent response to Max Kellerman, the host of ESPN’s “First Take,” who said on the air recently that “Jews do not have a plan for world domination,”.
Kellerman was responding to social media posts by another NFL star, DeSean Jackson, who last month posted a quote he attributed to Adolf Hitler accusing Jews of having a “plan for world domination.” Jackson subsequently removed the post and apologized.

On Aug. 1, Johnson posted a video of Alan Dershowitz speaking to the pro-Israel organization Stand With Us in which the attorney said, in part, “We have earned the right to influence public debate, we have earned the right to be heard.”

Johnson’s accompanying tweet accused Jews of seeking to conceal “a lucrative market in pedophilia, human trafficking, child sex trafficking & torture.”

Also on Aug. 1, Johnson tweeted: “All roads lead to Rome, with a layover in Israel . . .”

On Monday, Johnson noted the attention his tweets had garnered, posting: “I angered ‘Rabbis’ from here to Israel.”
