Now we’re being told Jeremy Corbyn has ‘unconscious bias’ against Jews. Or does he?

Jeremy Corbyn is clearly not an enemy of the Jewish people.

Look at the state of this:

Baddiel is saying that, although on the surface Jeremy Corbyn is absolutely not anti-Semitic, he has an unconscious bias against Jewish people.

He has cited the case of the Mear One mural featuring bankers playing Monopoly while sitting on the backs of the poor, saying they all bore caricature “Jewish” facial features. Mr Corbyn defended the artist.

People forget that only (if I recall correctly) two of the bankers featured in the mural (they were all based on real people) were Jewish, so they could not all be representations of the anti-Semitic trope of a Jewish capitalist banking conspiracy. They were simply caricature representations of bankers in general and what the artist considered them to do to the poor.

Mr Corbyn saw that. Baddiel seems to have a blind spot there.

I know it’s just one example, but might it not be more accurate to suggest that it is Baddiel who has the unconscious bias, if he can’t understand that Jeremy Corbyn’s opposition to racism in all its forms is genuine?

Others do:

Mr Corbyn had his faults as a Labour leader, certainly. He didn’t clear the right-wing factionalists out of the party machine to stop them clogging it up, for one thing.

But on anti-Semitism, he acted decisively. He brought in measures that reduced the amount of anti-Semitism in the Labour Party to a lower level than anywhere else in the United Kingdom – even while being hindered by those right-wing factionalists. But this is ignored.

And now his successor, Keir Starmer, is behaving in openly anti-Semitic ways but gets a free pass because (it’s thought) the mainstream media do not see him as the threat to the Establishment that Mr Corbyn was.

So Starmer can kick any number of left-wing Jews out of Labour without being questioned at all:

One has to question, also, why Mr Corbyn and anti-Semitism keep being dragged back into the spotlight. Is this a distraction from the issues facing us now?

So it seems that, rather than there being a hierarchy of racism in Mr Corbyn’s mind, there is a hierarchy of bias instead.

Jeremy Corbyn isn’t biased at all; David Baddiel has an unconscious bias against Corbyn; and the media have a very conscious bias against him. Am I right?

    I think Baddiel has a conscious bias against black and brown people never mind an unconscious bias.

    These self serving far right, backstabbers must still be very, very scared of Jeremy Corbyn. It is just a pity that he didn’t take the liars, slanderers and defamers to court, and did them all for every penny!

    Baddiel , in my view, is a grifter trying to surf the largely fake antisemitism “crisis” in order to feed his ego and inflate a sagging career. He has nothing of value to say but says it anyway. The timing of his book indicates that it was designed to make the most of the MSM crescendo of disinformation around the issue.

    Given that there is ample evidence of Baddiel being overtly racist it’s a bit rich of him to accuse others of subconscious bias, and his reaction to being criticised was to accuse those people who were pointing it out of cyber-bullying which indicates that Baddiel supports a hierarchy of racism. He’s a turd.
