Why are so many media commentators crowing about the massive swing to the Conservative Party in Barnet, believed to be due to Jewish voters abandoning Labour over allegations of anti-Semitism? Are the mainstream press pleased to have encouraged Jews to support the Party of Anti-Semitism?
Yes, that’s right – the Conservative Party is the home of anti-Semitism in the UK now.
We already knew that the level of anti-Semitism in the Labour Party is the same as the national average – and has fallen since Jeremy Corbyn became leader, contrary to the bilge you’ve been reading or watching, courtesy of right-wing organs like the BBC or the Murdoch rags.
It is on the right of the political spectrum that anti-Semitism is visibly stronger. Usually that would mean the far-right; organisations like the BNP, EDL and so on.
But reports on the more reliable social media have shown an alarming amount of anti-Semitism in the Conservative Party.
Consider the following councillors and candidates who were alleged to have anti-Semitic leanings in the run-up to last Thursday’s local elections (information from Evolve Politics):
Tory Council Candidate Geroge Stoakley – Cambridgeshire – Suspended for allegedly anti-Semitic, sexist and abusive tweets
Tory Council Candidate Matthew Clarke – Stevenage – Suspended for allegedly numerous anti-Semitic, homophobic and misogynistic comments
Tory Council Candidate Darren Harrison – Watford – Suspended for allegedly having links to Neo-Nazis and the EDL
Tory Candidate Alexander van Terheyden – Hackney – Suspended for allegedly supporting an Anti-Muslim Hate Group and attending a rally with the neo-Nazi former EDL leader
And Evolve Politics has since added Hertfordshire councillor Michael Hearn, who allegedly “lists Nazi lawyer and holocaust denier Hajo Herrman as his inspiration on Facebook, and has also shared articles from the neo-Nazi organisation Generation identity and labelled UK immigrants as the ‘dregs of every nation’.”
The shame of more broad-based racism runs right to the top of the Conservative Party: its prime minister, Theresa May, devised the racist “hostile environment” policy under which the Tory government victimised and deported thousands of innocent UK citizens who had every right to stay in the country.
Yet after Barnet Council turned blue, apparently due to Jewish voters turning away from Labour after seeing stories about anti-Semitism in that party, put forward by biased media sources, this two-faced opportunist leapt up to lie about the event:

“Vile anti-Semitism that has gone unchallenged in the Labour Party”? Who’s she trying to kid?
Right-wing opportunists have been flagging up every slightest hint of anti-Semitism they can find – to ludicrous levels – in the hope of misdirecting Jewish people into taking their support away from Labour.
Those are the people who have been celebrating the election result in Barnet – and other council areas where the Jewish vote has migrated to the Conservative Party.
They are people like John Mann, who tweeted that the anti-Semitism row that he helped stir up and has been stoking every chance he could get had “cost Labour badly”.
Party leader Jeremy Corbyn has said the party will review its performance in the elections. When it does, Labour should consider very seriously the behaviour of party members – particularly MPs like Mr Mann – who have created fears that the party harbours anti-Semites, when in fact it does not.
And then, This Writer strongly recommends that they should all be expelled.
