Former CFL player posting anti-Semitic tweets again

MONTREAL (JTA) A former professional football player fined a year ago by the Canadian Football League (CFL) for anti-Semitic tweets is still posting such material.

Khalif Mitchell, apparently referring to the controversy surrounding a Donald Trump posting, recently tweeted that the real tribes of Israel would never use a demonic Star of David, only devils would.

Mitchell, a former defensive tackle for the Montreal Alouettes and two other CFL teams, also tweeted that the late Elie Wiesel was a thief of the holy people and referred to Jews as those devils posing as Gods people …

A retweet by Mitchell, who once played for the San Francisco 49ers of the National Football League, referred to the Hollowcost as a lie.

Mitchell, 31, a Virginia native, was fined an undisclosed amount by the CFL in May 2015 after he posted anti-Semitic material on his Twitter account. His postings also included material on ISIS and links to a Holocaust denial video.

Then a player for the Alouettes, Mitchell later met with Bnai Brith Canada officials and apologized. He was released by Montreal in June 2015 and remains a free agent.
