#ToryScum: MP whose inquiry into Tory Islamophobia never happened accuses left-wingers of racism

Sajid Javid: not only has he made himself look stupid, he has reminded us all that his political party is full of racists and reignited public fury at #ToryScum.

Conservatives who tried to claim on Twitter that left-wingers are racists have fallen foul of the facts – again.

Sajid Javid is the principle offender in this case – to judge by the number of responses to him, although James Cleverly was also involved, making it his second offence within the same day, along with a few other now-familiar Tory faces.

They were all responding to this clip, from the Twitter account @OneRuleForThem:

According to Javid, Cleverly, Tom Tugendhat, and the instigator of the #ToryScum controversy Christopher Clarkson, that advert is racist. Can you find anything in it that refers to Sunak’s ethnic origin at all, let alone in a negative way?

Neither can I.

But Javid responded thus:

Classic DARVO: “Deny, Attack, Reverse Victim and Offender”

Javid is saying there’s nothing dodgy about Sunak (despite the evidence in the clip). He’s attacking “The Left” (not just @OneRuleForThem, I notice) with a claim that they are racist. And he’s painting Sunak as a victim of that racism rather than the shady character his own history suggests he is.

Javid was joined by Cleverly, as this response shows:

Notice “The Left really” appears in both Javid’s and Cleverly’s tweets – because they were taken from the same source material?

At least the tweets from Clarkson and Tugendhat used different words – although that wasn’t enough to save them from public scorn:

Tugendhat’s tweet earned him a response from the clip’s creator – that made him look the fool he is:

The simple fact is that this particular organisation didn’t make a video about Hammond because it didn’t exist when he was Chancellor. It joined Twitter last month.

So let’s get back to the reaction to Javid. Here are a few examples:

That’s right – Javid did extract a promise from all the other then-Conservative leadership candidates that there would be an inquiry into Islamophobia into the Tory Party.

Once Boris Johnson was installed as leader (and new prime minister), the (also) newly-installed Tory chairman backpedalled on that promise. What was his name? Oh yes…

James Cleverly.
