Was anybody fooled by Keir Starmers display of commemoration and humility in memory of those in our Armed Forces who fought, among other things, against race hate and genocide?
Here’s his message:
Today, we say thank you to everyone who has served, and continues to serve, in our armed forces.
— Keir Starmer (@Keir_Starmer) November 11, 2021
And here’s another message by Keir Starmer, sent on the previous day, supporting genocidal racist Tzipi Hotovely and condemning the peaceful protesters who told her she was not welcome on their college campus:
This is totally unacceptable.
Intimidation and threats of violence will not be tolerated. https://t.co/tqxw24q4pk
— Keir Starmer (@Keir_Starmer) November 10, 2021
The demonstration was peaceful. It is Hotovely who demands violence against people who do not belong to her own ethnic group – a group to which Starmer belongs by marriage and supports in his business dealings and political activities.
The message is clear:
Keir Starmer sent a clear message tonight. The same one he sent during BLM. If you are a student or anyone for that matter who is brave enough to stand up and confront injustice and racism when you see it normalised, he is not on your side.

… and that includes anybody who has served in the Armed Forces, fighting race hate and genocide.
Now, that race hate and intolerance are making themselves clear within the ranks of the Parliamentary Labour Party, as it seems Starmer is planning to deselect four sitting MPs – for the crime of being black:
• Dianne Abbott
• Zarah Sultana
• Apsana Begum
• Taiwo Owatemi
Are all facing pressure to stand down or face trigger ballots should be a klaxon to Labour HQ
Black & Asian women are being systemically singled out for ill treatment. They deserve our support.

It seems the claim is that some in local party groups are stirring up unrest on the basis that some of the named black women were selected as supporters of Jeremy Corbyn, rather than as representatives of the people in the constituencies.
Among those facing deselection is Zarah Sultana, who is widely accepted to have been one of the most effective MPs in a Labour Party that has been rendered toothless by Starmer’s leadership:
The witch hunt has turned its ire towards Zarah Sultana – the best new MP in the whole of parliament. She is effective, compassionate, hard working and on the right side of history – and those are the reasons the apartheid supporting members of Labour Party can't stomach her.

She recently highlighted the racist abuse she receives from members of the public, posting on Twitter an email she received on her return from bereavement leave after the death of her grandmother:
Having spent a couple of days away on bereavement leave, I came back to my emails today. This is what I found. Muslim women in politics shouldn't have to tolerate this. pic.twitter.com/KFQ0zVVkER

What has Starmer done to support his MP in the face of this racism?
I’ll say it again:
He has done nothing.
He supports genocidal racists and he undermines people of colour in his own organisation – while pretending to be pious for the cameras.
What a verminous, racist hypocrite.
