Derrick Johnson, President of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), is calling for the resignation or firing of Washington Commanders defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio after the NFL coach made remarks critical of the violent revolutionary movement Black Lives Matter (BLM).
On Monday, Del Rio responded to a report about the Jan. 6 Committee hearing posted by the left-wing Brookings Institute, calling the January 6, 2021 Capitol breach a “dust-up” and tweeting, “Would love to understand ‘the whole story’ about why the summer of riots, looting, burning and the destruction of personal property is never discussed but this is?”
A legitimate question, considering that the George Floyd rioters were given a pass by the media, law enforcement, and government despite months of rioting, billions of dollars in property destruction, and even deaths. But Del Rio was slammed by the left for raising the point.
The coach eventually and predictably apologized — a major mistake because an apology is never enough for the woke mob.
“It’s time for Jack Del Rio to resign or be terminated,” Derrick Johnson demanded in reply. “His comments could not have been more offensive and ignorant. The January 6th insurrection — an attempted coup — was far from a ‘dust-up.’ Each day we learn more and more on just how close our democracy came to autocracy. Downplaying the insurrection by comparing it to nationwide protests, which were in response to a public lynching, is twisted. You can’t coach a majority Black team while turning your back on the Black community. It’s time for you to pack up and step off the field.”
Absolute nonsense and propaganda, every word. There was no “insurrection” on January 6, and opposing the BLM riots is not “turning your back on the Black [sic] community” — it’s rejecting the politically correct Narrative, which is an unforgivable offense to the totalitarian Left.
