It’s good to see that people are catching on to the fact that the faked ‘anti-Semitism’ crisis in the Labour Party has been manufactured by Conservatives to hide their own problems.
My brother, Beastrabban, has been quick off the mark – you might expect that, knowing the he reads This Site. But he has his own points to make. For example:
The real anti-Semites are still present, and they are a genuine threat to Jews, as well as to other ethnic groups, feminists, Socialists, trade unionists and everyone else on the left. This week we’ve seen Jack Renshall, of the banned Nazi youth group National Action, convicted of terrorism. Renshall and his ‘national comrades’, to use a Nazi term for members of a Nazi group, are genuine anti-Semites, who really do believe all the vicious lies and myths about the Jews controlling everything and plotting to destroy the White race. Renshall was convicted of plotting to assassinate Rosie Copper, his local MP, as the local representative of ‘the Jewish state’. And there are chillingly videos on YouTube of Renshall and his storm troopers holding rallies in their cod-Nazi uniforms, screaming their bile against the Jews, and raising their hands in the Nazi salute.
Quite right. This is real – dangerous – anti-Semitism of the kind that the so-called Campaign Against Antisemitism wouldn’t touch with a barge pole.
And this is despite the fact that:
Real anti-Semitism in the UK is actually very low. The vast majority of severely normal Brits either have positive views of their Jewish fellows, or else consider them to be no better or worse than anyone else. Only eight per cent of Brits are anti-Semites, or hold negative views of Jews.
Jews are far more trusted and protected than other ethnicities. And the Jewish establishment are well aware of this. That’s why they’re smearing Corbyn as an anti-Semite.
Another person who has caught on to the fact that the “anti-Semitism” crisis has been manufactured out of nothing by Conservatives is the blogger David Rosenberg. He writes damningly about the CAA, the Board of Deputies of British Jews, and the Jewish Leadership Council ignoring genuine anti-Semitism in order to pursue their nonsensical accusations against Labour:
David Rosenberg has also described the fraudulent nature of the Jewish establishment’s smears and posturing in several of his blog posts. And he’s made it very clear that organisations like the Campaign Against Anti-Semitism aren’t interested in defending Jews from real persecution. For example, at the time the CAA, and then the Board of Deputies of British Jews and the Jewish Leadership Council were holding their squalid demos attacking Labour, the Jewish residents of Dollis Hill had awoken one morning to find anti-Semitic graffiti and SS symbols scrawled on the pavement outside their homes and on a bus shelter. One family had a brick thrown through their window. These people needed the help and support of a genuine group combating anti-Semitism. But the CAA wasn’t interested. They’re too busy attacking Labour.
And Rosenberg makes it very clear that this is because they’re Tories. He writes
If the larger protests in Parliament Square led by the Board of Deputies and the Jewish Leadership Council on 26th March, alleging “endemic” antisemitism in the Labour Party, could draw a thin veil over a patently pro-Tory agenda, by offering speaker slots to anti-Corbyn Labour representatives, there were no pretences yesterday. One invited speaker, a former Labour Party donor who quit the party last month, who spoke of the need to rebuild relations between the Jewish community and the Labour Party, was shouted down with cries of “Off! Off! Off!” and “Vote Tory!”
He goes on to describe how the anti-Semitism in the Labour party has been grossly exaggerated by the Tories to disguise the rise in racism against other ethnic groups, which has occurred with the Conservatives’ complicity.
And it’s working, isn’t it? The faked-up bunk about Labour “anti-Semitism” is all over the news, while there’s nothing to be said about the real Conservative racism. I mentioned this a while ago, I recall.
Here comes the proof:
But that palpable sense of panic in Tory ranks has been pushed out of the news by an opportunist campaign that has latched on to a tiny number of real incidents involving Labour members and anti-Semitism that need to be addressed. That campaign has wildly and deliberately exaggerated their overall significance, thrown in ambiguous historical incidents as if they are of burning significance today; and completely obscured the bigger picture of rising racism against a range of communities that has occurred on the Tories’ watch and with Tory complicity.
One Tory activist, David Thomas, a former Conservative parish councillor was honest enough to tweet “It’s an actual stroke of genius we’ve been able to pull this off, perfect timing heading into the elections too”. He has since deleted the tweet.
