It looked like this Jewish attack on Kyrie Irving was never going to end. However, the Jews actually have responded to the huge backlash, and are now backing down.
This has never happened before.
NBC commissioner Adam Silver met with Kyrie Irving earlier this week, and revealed he has “no doubt that he’s not anti-Semitic.”
“We had a direct and candid conversation,” Silver, who is Jewish, told The New York Times. “He’s someone I’ve known for a decade, and I’ve never heard an antisemitic word from him or, frankly, hate directed at any group.”
Silver excoriated Irving after the Nets star refused to apologize for promoting an anti-Semitic movie on his social media channels.
Irving is in the midst of a suspension of at least five games while he completes a list of actions assigned to him by the Nets in order to return to the team. They include: 1. Publicly apologize for the Oct. 27 social media links to the anti-Semitic film (which he did in the aftermath of the suspension); 2. Complete anti-hate classes (including donating $500,000); 3. Complete sensitivity training; 4. Complete anti-hate training focusing on anti-Semitism; 5. Meet with Jewish leaders (including the ADL); and 6. Meet with team owner Joe Tsai, whose texts he reportedly has ignored.
“I feel that we got to the right outcome here in terms of his suspension,” Silver said, acknowledging criticism of how long it took to discipline Irving. “And in retrospect, we may have been able to get there faster. I accept that criticism. But I felt it was important to understand the context in which it was posted to understand what discipline was appropriate, not in any way to excuse it but to understand what discipline was appropriate.”
The suspension has also received criticism from players. Last week, NBPA vice president Jaylen Brown said he expects the union to file an appeal, while Lakers star LeBron James criticized Irving’s behavior and the Nets punishment, calling it “excessive.”
Silver said he and the Nets watched the movie at the center of the firestorm in order to understand Irving’s post.
“Once we did that investigation, it was clear to me that this was indeed hate speech and we, together with the Brooklyn Nets, did respond,” Silver told the Times.
The commissioner opted to keep details of the meeting between himself and the player, though he also added, “Whether or not he is antisemitic is not relevant to the damage caused by the posting of hateful content.”
What damage, Jew?
You’ve been promoting LeBron and others spewing hateful rhetoric against white people – which was much more extreme than anything Kyrie said.
If speech causes “damage,” then that means you people are purposefully trying to damage whites.
Or do Jews have special feelings that are more easily damaged, because of all of their suffering? It seems like if that were true, their massive and unprecedented wealth could alleviate some of those hurt feelings, no?
The Jews are not getting away with anything by backing down. We still have Ye, and Kyrie is not going to forget what happened to him here.
Everyone sees what is happening here. The Jews are in control. They are the ones with the power. No one even denies that anymore. We’re now at the point where it’s time to discuss what Jews are doing with this power and if it is good.
