Duffield dropped(?) from Labour’s candidate list for ‘anti-Semitism’. Cue controversy

Rosie Duffield: she attacked Jeremy Corbyn over the false anti-Semitism claims against him and now an anti-Semitism claim has led to her deselection as a Labour election candidate, it seems.

A Labour MP who (it says below) was instrumental in attacking Jeremy Corbyn over alleged anti-Semitism in the party has been accused of anti-Semitism – and it seems to have been enough to have Rosie Duffield deselected as a Labour candidate.

Supporters of Ms Duffield have called “foul”, claiming that the accusation is false and was only made in order to have her removed.

Other observers have called them out over it – pointing out that the accusations against Jeremy Corbyn were also false and only made in order to have him removed. Sauce for the goose… hoist by her own petard… the metaphors are endless.

Here’s the offending tweet that Ms Duffield is said to have liked, plus some commentary:

Do you think a decision to drop her for that would be justified? Or should she have been removed for falsely attacking Mr Corbyn, back in the day?

    If the people mentioned in the article had done a simple search online they would have found have found that Eddie Izzards claims were based on historical facts. All they needed to do was a simple search eg how did the Nazis treat trans people and they would have seen multiple sites supporting his claim.
    In 2022 for instance the Regional Court of Cologne ruled that denying that trans people were victims of the Nazis qualifies as “a denial of Nazi crimes”.[6][7] Marhoefer, Laurie (2023-06-06). “Historians are learning more about how the Nazis targeted trans people”.

      That just goes to show that the falsehood of the allegation has no bearing on the decision being made – as it didn’t with regard to many of the others who were accused of anti-Semitism during the Corbyn era.

    Eddie Dullard – trans superhero?

    He’s NOT trans. He’s a cross-dresser. And most definitely NOT a ‘superhero’ but a cack comedian and actor.

    As for duffield, she’ll be no great loss to politics. And it’s schadenfreude to see the smarmerites like rats fighting in a sack.

    Reminds me of the emo philips quip:

    Once I saw this guy on a bridge about to jump. I said, “Don’t do it!” He said, “Nobody loves me.” I said, “God loves you. Do you believe in God?”

    He said, “Yes.” I said, “Are you a Christian or a Jew?” He said, “A Christian.” I said, “Me, too! Protestant or Catholic?” He said, “Protestant.” I said, “Me, too! What franchise?” He said, “Baptist.” I said, “Me, too! Northern Baptist or Southern Baptist?” He said, “Northern Baptist.” I said, “Me, too! Northern Conservative Baptist or Northern Liberal Baptist?”

    He said, “Northern Conservative Baptist.” I said, “Me, too! Northern Conservative Baptist Great Lakes Region, or Northern Conservative Baptist Eastern Region?” He said, “Northern Conservative Baptist Great Lakes Region.” I said, “Me, too!”

    Northern Conservative Baptist Great Lakes Region Council of 1879, or Northern Conservative Baptist Great Lakes Region Council of 1912?” He said, “Northern Conservative Baptist Great Lakes Region Council of 1912.” I said, “Die, heretic!” And I pushed him over.”

    So let’s try to clarify what this means. As far as the Labour Party is concerned attacking people for being in any way “gender queer” is fine, but even the remotest possibility that something could be twisted into seeming antisemitic is absolutely forbidden. Hierarchy of bigotries completely out in the open. This is exactly why Starmer and his lackeys need to be removed from politics completely.
