Boris Johnson: No matter how hard he scrubs, he can’t clean up his own record of racism and anti-Semitism.

The leader of a leading UK political party has been called to account over anti-Semitism by Jewish people.

No, it’s not Jeremy Corbyn. He has nothing to answer for.

Boris Johnson, on the other hand, is a full-blown anti-Semite of the lowest kind.

That’s according to the Jewish academics and campaigners who highlighted his shortcomings in a letter published by The Guardian.

It seems the Dirty Johnson has “invoked some of the oldest and most pernicious antisemitic stereotypes in a book he wrote when he was a Conservative shadow minister. He describes ‘Jewish oligarchs’ who run the media, and fiddle the figures to fix elections in their favour.

“He portrays a Jewish character, Sammy Katz, with a “proud nose and curly hair”, and paints him as a malevolent, stingy, snake-like Jewish businessman who exploits immigrant workers for profit.”

Not only that, but “Johnson has form when it comes to anti-Jewish hatred.

“As editor of the Spectator he chose to publish articles in which the notorious racist Taki Theodoracopulos boasted of being ‘an antisemite’, argued black people ‘have lower IQs than whites’ and praised Enoch Powell as a ‘great man’.

“Johnson defended Theodoracopulos, calling him a ‘distinguished columnist’. Even now Johnson continues to cosy up to Donald Trump, despite his rhetoric about Jewish disloyalty and support for neo-Nazis.

“Johnson’s contempt for minorities, women, LGBT+ and working-class people is well known, so it’s not surprising this extends to Jews.”
