Starmer on THAT statue: he thinks there’s a heirarchy of racism, with black people very low down it

What a man of the people Keir Starmer turned out to be!

When he finally broke cover to comment on the swim taken by the statue of slaver Edward Colston on Sunday, it wasn’t to discuss the brutal legacy of the British slave trade, that is still ruining lives to this very day.

It was to deplore the statue’s removal as an unforgivable act of vandalism!

So now we know where his priorities lie!

(If you’re confused, refer again to the image at the top of this piece. Got it? Good. Let’s continue.)

This is the man whose first act as Labour leader was to concede that his party has a huge problem with anti-Semitism and hand over the handling of that problem to a third-party organisation consisting mainly of supporters of the Conservatives.

So we can see that he sees racism against Jews as heinous but will defend the symbols of racism against black people to the hilt.

Perhaps this is the reason he hasn’t lifted a finger to investigate the appalling racism directed against Diane Abbott, Clive Lewis or any other black Labour MPs?

Starmer’s silly outburst has provoked unfavourable comparisons with Jeremy Corbyn. I’m sure that wasn’t his intention:

More seriously, he has demonstrated to half a million party members that he supports racism against people who are party members:

His comment that the statue could have been taken down by legal means has been disproved out-of-hand; attempts had been made continuously for decades, only to be rebuffed by authorities who, one presumes, are as racist as Starmer himself. Did he know this when he passed his comment?

One of the most informative reactions to Starmer has been that of black Bristolian and Canary supremo Kerry-Anne Mendoza, who has correctly – and publicly – deduced what Starmer’s comments mean about him as a person:

Yes indeed.

He has changed Labour from a party that was accused of racism into a party that is rightly accused of racism.

    For the first time in 10 years Labour has a chance of winning! Yes winning an election not like the weak and ineffectual Corbyn. What do you do attack him? Isn’t 10 years of Tory terror enough for you? How much more do you want to endure. A cull of the population during the pandemic, Brext being forced on top. Just wait till next year when Trump if he’s reelected “dictates” terms. What do you seriously think Starmer was going to say about the statue? He’s a man of the law FGS. I agree with it being pulled down. It is part of Britain’s shameful history of Empire and that’s where it should be in a museum. Not on display to an affront to black people. Anyway I’m pissed off with you ultra lefties. I come from a Labour voting family and will be supporting Starmer. Just remember Blair won 3 elections and Corbyn lost 4.

    On that note I am off, I have followed you for some time now but your ultra leftie dogma is too much for my stomach.

      Carol – Starmer is a Red Tory and from all the evidence a racist to boot! How can you support this person? Weren’t you paying attention to what he said about the statue? He said lawful means should have been used to remove it – in the knowledge that people have been trying lawful means for many decades. That’s tacit support of the statue and everything it represents. Please don’t try to defend the indefensible.

      I am not an ultra-leftie and your use of such language as a derogatory term is offensive. It’s just as well you’re on your way. Perhaps there’s a Red Tory site somewhere that will better accommodate your beliefs.
