The Chairman Mao resembling, Queen hating, threat to Britain, Labour Party thread


Recommended Posts

It's a sorry situation when the opposition party can't ever talk about politics because their leader is who he is. In the last election I could see Corbyn pulling more voters in than he scared away but with this constant negative vibe around racism in his party, videos of him attending quite extreme conferences and making jokes about Jews needing to "learn English irony" it's starting to become idiotic. You can say a lot of things about the Blairite faction within labour but at the moment they are the only ones who are actually doing anything good in our political spectrum.

If Trump had suggested the crackdown on media/social media that Corbyn suggested the other day there'd be uproar, I thought the conservatives had the darkest plans for surveillance and media control - but I was clearly wrong.

There's been another Corbyn anti-Semitism story hasn't there? I dunno why, I just get the feeling.

The media had to do something to balance out the Raab shitshow yesterday.

It certainly shows why he didn't want to adopt the definitions of antisemitism anyway. He's just been caught red handed accusing Jews of being less British. This was Blandy's point all along, he didn't want to adopt the examples as he's sadly infringed on them himself several times.

The fact that Raab is a !#"¤!¤ with no spine doesn't make Corbyn's constant shitshow any better.

Is perhaps becaused he's spent the last 30 years mingling with anti-semites and has found no way, nor has any intention of explaining this longstanding unfortunate habit?

Under a guardian video on youtube about one of his unfortunate speeches someone's been so kind as to summarise JC's glorious political moves for IRA/Hamas/Hezbollah etc. Some of it is clearly over the top but it shows a pretty sad streak of events where Corbyn is too blinkered to realise what he's doing. I'm sure his supporters call it "making peace" but to everyone else it's someone who's taking sides in conflicts he clearly has no intention of understanding.

Absolutely.

It isn't the result of work by an anonymous youtube commenter, though, it's from Staines (and his minions):

It's sad. I mean, like with many things where there are valid grounds for criticism or concern, by quite clearly, and partisanly dragging up al kinds of non-stuff it actually weakens the genuine case, while also causing supporters to think, perhaps that all criticism is made up tosh. It's just transparently stupid.

I don't like the bloke at all, and think he's a wrong 'un, but you can't defend some of the ludicrous accusations made against him. Stick to the genuinely concerning stuff, there's no shortage of it.

"it's a cult"

"it's like Jeremy Corbyn has declared war on the jews"

"he cavorts with terrorists"

"a threat to world security and major implications, not just for jews"

Marie van der Zyl has told an Israeli TV channel that a Corbyn government could represent a 'threat to world security'

 

Board of Deputies President being calm, balanced and reasonable here.

Fortunately, the number of people who recognise this, and will stand against it, is growing by the day.

Boycott, Divest, Sanction.  BDS.  Because apartheid is never a good thing.

That tweet is an example of the consequences of lumping in made up or spurious allegations in with genuinely worrying behaviours. So now “the number of people who recognise” all criticism of him as being due to his support for Palestinians “ is growing”. Mixing false stuff with true stuff has diluted the true stuff to zero concern in a growing number of people’s minds.

So much so that Corbyn’s fan club are going to stand against all criticism even more staunchly, thus forming an impenetrable shield, protecting their idol, like some deepest red queen bee from all voices other than those of anti-Eu, Irish unification, Hamas supporting, Hezbollah solidarity, Russian propagandists called Seamus, John or Diane. In this way the sweet honey of 1970s socialist nirvana will be protected and available only to the chosen riteous tribe of Corbynite worker drones.

Meanwhile the country crumbles....

But BDS, yeah definitely. I agree there.

There should be room for a sensible discussion about the difference between antisemitism and antizionism, and the difference between criticism of the actions of Israel and being antisemitic - a Jewish group within Labour has tried to have exactly that discussion.  The space for that discussion is being deliberately eroded, especially by those who would see all criticism of Israel placed out of bounds.

It is also clear that Israel has a campaign of deliberately undermining and seeking to remove critics (an official from the embassy was caught on film suggesting action against Alan Duncan, a tory sympathetic to Palestine), and that many purporting to speak for the Jewish community will accept no compromise, and cynical opportunists like Streeting, Umunna and the rest stoke it up.

In those circumstances, yes, it becomes very hard to find space for legitimate criticisms, when there is so plainly an agenda to attack Corbyn, and this issue is used as cover, rather than being the core concern.  It's so utterly dishonest that it invites dismissal.

For some reason this paragraph puts me in mind of Brian Clough. “We talk about it for 20 minutes then we decide I was right”

I agree with much of that. Israel’s government and its supporters have over decades acted and lobbied etc. to smother criticism and critics of some of their horriblist acts and deeds and that has spread to encompass almost any criticism, valid or not. That’s an unhealthy situation to get into, isn’t it? Where basically all criticism is batted away as motivated by people or groups opposed to your right to even be where you are. I hope that sort of thing doesn’t take hold in our politics.

speaking of our politics and your last sentence, I totally disagree with that part. Dismissing criticism because of who is making it, or even their motives is a mistake. Tories, Labour, SNP etc all have their internal factions, feuds and rivalries  They all have their cynical attack dogs and all the rest. No part of any of them are pure and on a higher plain, morally, to the extent that critics can be dismissed and waived away because it came from a cynical, low moral rival.  That always, always leads to corruption, entitlement, cronyism and atrophy and ultimately overthrow.

Dismissing criticism out of hand is a mistake.  However, when repeated overtures and efforts to find common ground are perpetually rebuffed, it starts to look as though dialogue is pointless, because nothing less than capitulation is demanded.  That is the impression currently given by the Board of Deputies, for example.  So if they want to continue to insist that the Labour code on antisemitism must include examples which prohibit criticism of Israel, the only sensible response is to say no.  And on the back of that, when the constant drip feed of carefully researched and catalogued overblown grievances resumes, then for me it reaches the point where it is impossible to accept that what is asked for is a genuine dialogue about genuine issues.
