Some of the most prominent Black leaders in the United States are virulent Jew-haters. As such, anti-Semitism has now been normalized in the Black community. Sadly Twitter will permit this libel from Larry Johnson to spread, while it censors President Trump, Donald Trump Jr, and other conservatives for speaking the truth. By the way, the NFL has a severe problem with anti-Semitism. Like Jack Dorsey, Roger Goodell will in all likelihood do nothing about it.
Twitter permitted former NFL player Larry Johnson to spread lies about a “Jewish cabal” that carries out perverse crimes like “ritualistic child torture” and “human sacrifice/murder.”

Despite repeated appeals to common sense to get Twitter to shut down sources of anti-Semitic incitement, the social media giant continues to turn a blind eye to the phenomenon that helps spread hate messages around the world.
On Sunday, former NFL player Larry Johnson, who has an ugly history of posting anti-Semitic tropes and Holocaust denial, was at it again, tweeting that there is a secret “Jewish cabal” that carries out perverse crimes like “Ritualistic Child Torture” and “Human Sacrifice/Murder.”
While there were many responses condemning the anti-Semitic tweet, there was also frustration that Twitter continues to turn a blind eye when it comes to hatred directed at Jews.
“The fact that a former athlete can tweet that a subversive Jewish cabal exists to 140,000 followers and nothing is done by @Twitter is disgraceful,” tweeted Canadian legislator Anthony Housefather.
“Here a high-profile former athlete tells his 146k followers via a verified account that ‘the Jewish cabal’ performs well at ‘ritualistic child torture.’ It’s clear @jack [Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey] has no policy to root out antisemitism on @Twitter, only to respond with token gestures when pressure builds,” tweeted Algemeiner editor-in-chief and CEO Dovid Efune.
The anti-Semitism problem isn’t just from individuals on Twitter, but also reaches the highest levels.
Last week Israeli legislators were outraged after Twitter company official Ylwa Pettersson told the Knesset that Iranian calls to wipe out Israel were just “foreign policy saber-rattling on military-economic issues [that] are generally not in violation of our rules.”
And on Friday, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany slammed Twitter, saying the social media giant was showing blatant bias by targeting conservatives, especially President Donald Trump.
