In the for-profit attention-grabbing universe, there is no such thing as bad press. Say anything to get your name trending and grow your social media following is the name of the game. Letting others spend their time and energy or agreeing or grilling as you please is the ultimate addiction habit of those sick people. And in the world of sports, one of the biggest and most marginalized attentions joy seeker is Jason WhitlockHis latest lecture on figuring out whatever’s trending and getting his name into the discussion in some horrible way turned anti-Semitism on Wednesday.

Whitlock quotes Bible Revelation 2:9 and ends his tweet with #Kanye. Dropping that protest rapper’s name represents a social group that only deranged or disgruntled people are willing to enter these days. The passage reads to me as former ESPN and FOX Sports commentator considers the Jews the devil, taking the world back at least 80 years targeting the Jewish community in a similar way to the Nazis. It’s really heavy, heart-pounding content.

The only sensible way to digest antisemitism is as obstinate comments. Therefore, Whitlock cannot take this attention as a negative. He aspires to be part of the general discussion when it comes to anything sports-related, as his name recognition alone doesn’t cut it. Anyone with a brain will know how ridiculous they sound when they spew blind hatred towards the Jews. I believe Whitlock falls in empty-cranium directory. Let me also break down the fourth wall – if his intention is to get people frustrated to write stories about him, congratulations Jason. Also congratulations you are a lunatic. And to the crowd that says we shouldn’t be writing about this at all, leaving his comments without blaming Whitlock is worse than showing you the grave mistake of his approach. he.

Which is worse, Jason? Really believe in the bigotry you type or know the falsehood and damage that can be caused by your words and actively participate in anti-Semitism to achieve the attention seeking goals you have set out for his career? Is not good. Both are destructive. You alone have nearly 600,000 followers on Twitter. Knowing that you have a responsibility to carefully reach a large audience, where all your messages are truly spread, is paramount and comes at a time when antisemitism is on the rise. Anti-Defamation League, whose mission is to prevent persecution of Jews and provide equal treatment for all, detected 2,717 anti-Semitism events in 2021, an increase of 34% from 2020. This number averages up to more than 7 such cases per day. But by all means, tweet about Jew and Satan being equal.

Calling out bigotry and racism in any form is the right move. Jewish people standing up for themselves against easily disproved lies and unprovoked attacks from famous people shouldn’t be controversial. Whitlock’s moved further from reality as his career has gone on, as the one-time Colin Cowherd fill-in now has been relegated to FOX News’ airwaves. He’s a rotating guest of Tucker Carlson’s, who’s embodied right-wing politics and all of its misinformation in recent years, to talk sports. Little by little, the news division at FOX News has left, opening the door for unvetted guests like Whitlock to spew whatever conspiracy he chooses. As the network’s Black conservative voice, Whitlock has become a shield to excuse the bigotry aired daily. The Jewish people have been accused of trying to control the media or society at-large, but I can’t remember any Jew government policymaking based on the teachings of Judaism. And our second gentleman, Doug Emhoff, is Jewish.

Ye and Whitlock are connected through their obstinate remarks. How much personal beliefs and influences intersect in saying disparaging things about Jews is unknown, and shouldn’t matter, because the messages of both should never have been made public. . The hateful comments that Jewish organizations had to deal with because of the likes of West’s comment and Whitlock’s tweet went viral instantly. Holocaust Museum in Los Angeles asked Kanye for a private tour earlier this month, but he declined, leading to the museum being the target of numerous anti-social messages. I may have a general ending to this story, calling on Whitlock to do better, but should we expect that, especially when it will hurt his brand? And that’s all that matters to him now, isn’t it? No apologies will be made. And that’s exactly the cycle a whore wants to pay attention to, this time at the expense of the Jewish community. And it’s disgusting.
