Anti-Semite claims ‘The Jews’ are funding Carole Cadwalladr’s Brexit investigations

Carole Cadwalladr.

It seems to be this month’s ‘thing’: If you can’t disprove the message, smear the messenger.

So with several ‘Leave’-supporting campaign groups undergoing serious investigation for varying breaches of electoral law – much of it due to the investigative journalism of Carole Cadwalladr, at least one ‘Leave’-supporting media organisation has decided to attack her, rather than her findings.

Unfortunately for Raheem Kassam and his Patreon site, the article‘s claims have no substances and seem to be a vehicle for dog-whistle anti-Semitism rather than serious journalism.

If you want to read a detailed takedown, I can recommend a piece on Zelo Street.

But I can give you the gist right here: Kassam wants you to believe that Ms Cadwalladr has been funded by Remain-supporting “globalist shills” (apparently this is an anti-Semitic dog whistle) because her work has appeared on the Open Democracy website and among its many funders is George Soros and his Open Society Foundation.

Kassam states: “Cadwalladr has attempted to cover such tracks by issuing a series of tweets alleging that any critique of the billionaire, fund manager Soros is ‘racist’ against Jews. This is despite Soros’s rejection of his Jewish identity, and in spite of the fact that he has openly admitted to assisting in the confiscation of Jewish property during the Holocaust”.

Zelo Street responds: “George Soros did not assist in confiscation of Jewish property” – and this certainly seems unlikely as he would have been only 15 at the end of World War II. “And whether he “rejects his Jewish identity” is irrelevant. Calling “Soros” is code for “the Jews”. Like gratuitously pitching terms like “globalists”, “global bankers”, and “Goldman Sachs”.”

Is this the ‘Leave’ response to the hard evidence that shows possibly-criminal breaches of electoral law – anti-Semitism?

If so, it’s not attractive.

But as I type these words, I wonder how many Leave supporters will choose to disassociate themselves from anyone promoting such an opinion – and how many will simply double down and attack those of us exposing it with the anti-Remain cry of “You lost – get over it”, that isn’t even relevant here?

    All that I will say is, don’t tar leave voters/ supporters with this brush. I, for one, don’t know who is saying these things and they do not speak for me. As far as I am concerned, this is one individual, or group individuals who have some kind of axe to grind and nothing to do with the voters; to suggest so is no different, in my opinion, from blaming all Jews, or anyone, for that matter, for the actions, or behaviour of any individual, or group of individuals; those people speak only for themselves.
    We must be careful, especially in this day and age, when people respond, not to evidence but to comments and rhetoric, of what we say and how we say it. The only people whom I know to be Jewish, for sure, are those who profess it and unless Jewishness is the issue, I, personally, don’t see what it has to do with anything.
    If you can’t make yourself look good, make somebody else look bad… this is nothing new and has been the staple of politics, at least, since I became eligible to vote; you see it in court; if the credibility if the witness is destroyed, their testimony, no matter how truthful, or accurate, becomes less likely to be believed by the jury. The trouble is that so many people lie, these days, that people will believe what they want to.

    Still don’t understand how it is that the 7 out of 10 members of the electoral commission with strong close links to the Eu haven’t investigated remain for spending twice the amount leave did and broke the spending limit by 100%, wonder why?

      Because it isn’t true.
      We keep telling you but there are none so blind as those who don’t want to see.
