Israeli children are indoctrinated into race-hating Palestinians. Why does the UK support this?

Racism – hatred of individuals because of something over which they had no control – is illegal in the United Kingdom.

It was, of course, the principal motivator behind the Nazi Holocaust that killed six million Jews in the 1930s and 1940s.

It is, therefore, bitterly disappointing to see Jewish Israeli children indoctrinated into race-hate against Palestinians.

It seems the state of Israel has learned nothing from the Holocaust.

Could the problem be… Zionism?

Racist (?) Labour suspends Kate Osamor for correctly identifying Israel’s Gaza genocide

Suspended: Kate Osamor.

Kate Osamor MP’s membership of the Parliamentary Labour Party has been suspended because she committed the heinous crime of suggesting that the genocide in Gaza, being perpetrated by Israel, should be recognised on Holocaust Memorial Day.

Here’s the gist:

As you can tell, some have seen this as the latest instalment of Starmer Labour’s alleged ongoing attack on the Socialist Campaign Group of Labour MPs.

Alternatively, it may be the latest instalment of Starmer Labour’s alleged ongoing attempt to stop black women representing that party:

Right-wing? Racist? And here’s the Jewish Labour Movement to support the suspension:

Let’s just remind ourselves that the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in The Hague has recently confirmed that Israel is now on trial for genocide.

With the court that actually tries nations for genocide trying Israel, it is neither inappropriate nor offensive for people to voice the opinion that it is guilty.

What is inappropriate and offensive is that the Labour Party – the same Labour Party that has endorsed the Tory government’s decision to respond to the ICJ’s ruling by withdrawing funds from the United Nations agency that supports Palestinian refugees – on the basis of flimsy non-evidence from that pillar of propaganda, Israel itself – has suspended an MP for voicing it.

Police more likely to Taser black people due to institutional racism | The Guardian

Police: black people were eight times more likely to be Tasered by them, and now only 4.2 times more likely. So what? It’s still institutional racism.

This is bad news for anyone who thought the police were going to reform after the Met was found to be institutionally racist, sexist and homophobic:

Police are far more likely to use a Taser electrical weapon against black people due to structural and institutional racism rather than the views of individual officers, a new report says.

The report says: “Our study suggests it may be a combination of societal issues and institutional policing priorities, policies and practices which are systematically and disproportionately affecting black and other ethnic minority communities in deprived neighbourhoods relative to the populations of more wealthy surrounding, predominantly white areas.

“In other words, our study supports the idea that the patterns of ethnic disproportionality evident in the UK Home Office statistics cannot be explained solely or even primarily at the level of individual officer behaviour or psychology because they are an outcome of an interaction between structural and institutional racism.”

Chief constable Lucy D’Orsi, who speaks for the NPCC on use of the weapon, said: “In 2019-20 black people were eight times more likely to have it used on them. Whilst figures from 2022-23 stats have shown a reduction to 4.2 times more likely, it is vital that we question why that is and take action.

“We welcome the findings of the report and are committed to thoroughly reviewing the content so that we can make appropriate changes to have a positive impact on the lives of black people.”

This Writer would suggest that the way police use Tasers is already impacting the lives of black people.

Suella Braverman’s speech: a self-hating bid for Tory leadership?

Suella Braverman: this product of UK multiculturalism reckons multiculturalism has failed.

The UK’s Tory Home Secretary has continued her hate campaign against immigrants in a speech to an American think tank – earning widespread condemnation from all but her own Tory cronies.

She was discussing policy, which means she would have needed to get permission to say her words from the Cabinet Office.

Commentators may be right to suggest that it is a first move in a bid to become leader of the Conservative Party, challenging Rishi Sunak’s ever-weakening position.

(Sunak appears to have given up any pretense of trying to run the country and seems to be devoting himself to projects that will make money for himself and his family.)

Of course, as she did have permission (the speech was signed off by Downing Street), then the Tories should lose votes from gay people and women – because she promoted discrimination against both those segments of the population in her speech; this is now Tory government policy.

The fact that she was speaking to a US think tank suggests that she was making a pitch to the kind of international oligarchs who provide much of the Tory Party’s funding (do I have to attach the word ‘allegedly’ to that?) in order to gain support for such a bid.

But the speech also opens up the main fault with Braverman’s candidacy – for anything: her opposition to immigration indicates hatred of the very mechanism that has put her in a position even to make her speech, let alone seek power as a world leader.

Her own prime minister is of Indian descent, yet has risen to become the political leader of a country that is not, ancestrally, his. Doesn’t that, alone, destroy her arguments?

She is, herself, a daughter of immigrants, but the way she speaks about them reveals not the calculated reasoning of a seasoned politician but the irrational hatred of an unbalanced child.

Remember when Jewish people were labelled “self-hating” if they campaigned against the policy of Israel to persecute Palestinians on the lands that country has illegally occupied? It was a misnomer, because they did not hate their religion, culture or ethnicity – just a policy of a country that claimed to represent that religion, culture and ethnicity.

But that issue brought the phrase “self-hating” into modern parlance and we may now attach it to Braverman with far more accuracy than was ever applied to it in relation to Jews.

She is the daughter of immigrants; she does clearly hate them (and, by extension, their offspring), so she’s very definitely self-hating.

And she knows it’s her weak point, too. That’s why she went on the attack when she was challenged about it after her speech:

In this part of her speech, Braverman claimed that multiculturalism – allowing people of other cultures to settle in the UK – has failed because they don’t integrate into society:

Her arguments about the results of immigration are not new; they are the same arguments that were put forward by Enoch Powell in 1968. Fortunately, we had people like Jonathan Miller to present the other side, back in those more enlightened days:

The claim that people come here to create communities of their original countries, rather than integrate into our culture, falls because only a minority do this:

Braverman is the daughter of Mauritian and Kenyan immigrants who integrated into UK society. Her prime minister, Rishi Sunak, is of Indian extraction but has also integrated into UK society. They are both living proof that her claim is false.

In fact, the debate over immigration goes back centuries; Shakespeare discussed it – and it is appropriate to end this article with a speech from the man who is considered to be England’s greatest writer.

If you claim to love England, Britain, the UK, and the culture that we have built, then you should love and live by these words:

Deporting people from foreign countries is not new – but it shows we are regressing

The Empire Windrush: the people brought to the UK on this ship in 1948, the Chinese deported back to that country two years before, and Afghan asylum-seekers who face death trying to cross the English Channel are all victims of the same primitive racism.

It’s always sad to see proof that a country is evolving backwards – especially when that country is your own.

That’s exactly what This Writer saw, watching an old BBC documentary series called Mixed Britannia.

It showed me that the current fervour for shipping people of foreign extraction who have been re-defined (take careful note of that: re-defined) as “undesirables” out of the UK (destination: anywhere) is a regression to the attitudes of more primitive times.

In the series, the late George Alagiah relates what he describes as the “shameful” episode in which people who were originally from China but had settled in Liverpool, some having married local women, were separated from their families in a night-time raid, thrown onto a ship and sent directly back to their country of origin.

Their labour had previously been welcomed but then it was considered no longer to be needed and racist law-makers dispensed with their services, with extreme prejudice.

Their wives and children were not told the truth about what had happened; they were left to believe they had been deserted by their husbands.

This happened under the otherwise-progressive Labour government of Clement Attlee; it should perhaps serve as a warning to us all that we should be careful not to view history through rose-tinted glasses, or any other distorting prism.

Mr Alagiah went on to show how attitudes had improved over the decades leading to 2011, when Mixed Britannia was made.

Hindsight renders it ironic that he referred to the arrival of the Empire Windrush, packed with passengers from the West Indies who had been promised UK citizenship in return for their help in rebuilding our then-war-torn nation, as a great step forward that happened only a few years later.

Today, the Windrush Scandal is one of the deepest scars on the face of the Conservative administration of 2010 onwards; documentation proving the right of the Windrush generation to live in the UK was deliberately destroyed and people who’d had every right to believe they were UK citizens were forced through a deportation process that was entirely unwarranted, unfair, and illegal. The Tories have yet to make full restitution to those they wronged.

Today we live overlooking the river of blood (to adopt a phrase) that used to be the English Channel – where refugees and asylum-seekers place their lives in the hands of criminal gangs because they have no safe, legal route to claim asylum in the UK; the Tories have closed them all off and say anybody trying to make the crossing is coming here illegally.

Does that include people from Afghanistan who worked as employees of the UK government and its forces there for 20 years after the post- 911 invasion, as implied by this social media post about the people who died or were rescued in the tragedy that happened on August 12:

“Their labour had previously been welcomed but then it was considered no longer to be needed and racist law-makers dispensed with their services, with extreme prejudice.”

It fits, doesn’t it?

Remember: The current Conservative government has deliberately dismantled the UK’s immigration and asylum system in order to make it impossible to properly process people coming to these shores to claim asylum.

They have done this in order to fool you into thinking that our borders are being overrun by foreigners who have no reason to come here.

They believe they need to put a fake enemy in front of you because otherwise you will realise that the only real enemy you have is the current Conservative government.

At the time of writing, Mixed Britannia may be viewed via the BBC iPlayer here.

The news in tweets: Tuesday, July 18, 2023

Is Jamie Driscoll’s crowdfund the dawn of a new model of politics?

Some seem to think so:

In fact it is more the continuation of a democratisation of politics that we’ve been seeing on the social media for several years.

Long-term followers of This Site will remember when I started the CrowdJustice fund to fight Rachel Riley’s lawsuit against me. I started by hoping for £5,000 by the end of the first month – and had it within a single day.

That was in 2019, and my public profile even then was much smaller than Jamie Driscoll’s is now.

The corporate bosses of the social media platforms have since tried to squash independent, left-wing news and politics sites out of public view but Mr Driscoll, being already highly-visible, has been able to avoid such censorship (so far).

It will be up to his supporters to keep it that way – and we can all expect a strong backlash from the Establishment that wants someone like Kim McGuinness (Labour’s just-announced candidate to be North East Mayor) to win:

Gosh. She loves the region and its people and wants to make the North East the home of real opportunity. For whom?

And hasn’t Mr Driscoll already done all of that? And isn’t he better-placed to continue all of that?

The only reason STP (Substitute Tory Party) leader Keir Starmer wanted to replace him is to change policies away from those that work for working-class people and towards something else.

In such circumstances, only a fool would support anyone but Jamie Driscoll.

Is Labour’s candidate selection process racist?

Read Mish Rahman’s statement and you will learn that, it seems, racism is alive and well in the STP (Keir Stürmer’s Substitute Tory Party), despite all the leader’s (false?) claims to have cleaned up the party’s act.

Mr Rahman says: “None of my fellow Bernie Grant Leadership Programme alumni have been selected. We were told the party would support us towards leadership positions as black and ethnic minority activists – yet after this longlisting process, nothing has changed.

“I was blocked for how I voted on the NEC in relation to the composition of party disciplinary structures, following the EHRC report… Being blocked for casting a vote in a democratic process should be a serious concern for all of us in the Labour Party.”

So: not only racism but also totalitarianism. Stürmer’s party hates democracy.

What else are we supposed to conclude from this?

Doubletalk and bafflegab over Labour’s child poverty betrayal

The pundits are out in force, trying to smooth over – or emphasise – the mistake Keir Stürmer’s STP (Substitute Tory Party) has made in refusing to promise to lift the two-child limit on Child Benefit claims.

Some (mostly representatives of the party leadership) are trying to support the decision on the grounds that changing the limit is unaffordable:

Others are attacking it – while still saying Stürmer’s party should get our vote in upcoming elections:

The debate reached ridiculous levels when STP right-winger John McTernan appeared on the BBC’s Newsnight to ask, if the two-child limit on Child Benefit is abolished, where will it end? Scrapping the punitive Benefit Cap? Abolishing Universal Credit and it’s five-week delay in paying claimants?

He said this as though those outcomes would be bad things; they’re not. Watch:

Oh, so the plan is to lift children out of poverty via an improved economy. But Stürmer has no economic policies that are intended to do that – or even like to achieve it by accident; no consequence of any mythical improved economic performance are set to be channelled into a better quality of life for working people under a Stürmer-run government.

In fact, we don’t know what such a government would do, because we are simply not being told.

We can only echo the words of former Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn – a man who explained very well exactly what he would have done if elected to form a government:

The simple fact is that Stürmer could find more than enough cash to support the proposed Child Benefit change, by reversing Conservative tax system tinkerings. For example:

Nobody should vote for any candidate – on Thursday (July 20, 2023) or at any other time – just because they have a Labour Party logo next to their name. Without knowing what the organisation behind that banner now intends to do, it would be foolish in the extreme.

Instead – if you want to elect someone with policies equivalent to those for which the Labour Party was originally formed – standing up for the people who do the work – you need to support the Independents who used to be Labour members but have left because their politics and those of Keir Stürmer and his cronies have diverged.

We all know about Jamie Driscoll, whose election for North East Mayor isn’t until next year.

But there’s also Rosie Mitchell, standing as an Independent in Somerton and Frome on Thursday.

And there are two other by-elections on the same day. Who are the candidates there who stand for what you need?

If black Labour MPs are demanding action against racism, Keir Starmer hasn’t tackled it

Starmer takes the knee for Black Lives Matter: to him it meant nothing more than a photo opportunity. Black lives don’t matter to him – as we discovered when he attacked the organisation shortly after.

Mike Katz of the Jewish Labour Movement is shown to be wrong once again.

After he tweeted a link to an article he had written, saying Keir Starmer had “stood up” to “racists” in the Labour Party, Twitter added “context” pointing out that a report for Labour by Martin Forde KC had shown that anti-black, anti-GRT and Islamophobic racism had been allowed to flourish within the party – and Labour had not engaged with him about it.

And then – on the same day (May 19, 2023), Channel 4 News reported that black Labour MPs had written to Starmer, demanding – well, see for yourself:

Take a look at what these black Labour MPs had to say:

That should stay as a complete refutation of Katz’s claim.

The damning part is in the report, when we’re told none of those who wrote to Starmer wanted to be interviewed on television, because they fear that he would expel them from the party in response.

That would be racist in itself.

And no wonder, when one considers this comment from a person This Writer knows personally – and I believe every word she wrote here:

Put it altogether and the evidence makes a monkey of Mike Katz.

There is more, though! Even though it’s not entirely relevant to the above, let’s pile on the agony for the JLM chairman:

There is clearly a wealth of evidence showing not only that racism is rampant in the Labour Party, but that Keir Starmer has done nothing whatsoever to put a stop to it.

Now that this has been pointed out, both to him and to Katz, do you think they’ll do anything about it?

Neither do I – although I reckon some black Labour MPs will be on their way out the door soon.

Labour’s mistreatment of Diane Abbott shows who are the real racists in that party

No love lost: Keir Starmer and Diane Abbott seem never to have been particularly friendly to each other.

It seems the pleas of the intelligent members of the UK community have fallen on deaf ears, and Diane Abbott remains suspended after a letter from her about racism was published by a newspaper.

What can be said about that? Here’s a highly-pertinent response:

Yes: certain people who are well-known for this kind of behaviour have been stirring up anti-Abbott sentiment in the media:

One of the “usual celebs” was Lord John Mann, a former Labour MP who was ennobled by Boris Johnson, if I recall correctly, in order to become the Tory government’s advisor on anti-Semitism.

Mann is not a particularly good spokesman for the anti-Abbott brigade because he is ill-suited to standing up for travellers; he was interviewed by Nottinghamshire Police after complaints were received about a brochure he issued on anti-social behaviour that singled out the travelling community.

The police’s written response to the complainant referred to the brochure as a “hate incident”.

Remember also that Mann managed to rustle up a TV crew at very short notice to ambush Ken Livingstone on a BBC stairwell, after a radio interview with Vanessa Feltz discussing anti-Semitism claims against Labour MP Naz Shah, and berated him for being “A disgusting racist” for “re-writing history”, “a Nazi apologist”, “factually wrong” and a “calculated lie” put about by “conspiracy theorists”.

But it was Mann who was “factually wrong”: nothing Livingstone said in his Feltz interview was racist; he didn’t re-write history but merely quoted it; so he wasn’t being a Nazi apologist. It was factually accurate, so could not be a calculated lie, no matter who Mann said put it about.

On the other side of the Abbott argument, Martin Forde KC – the author of the now-infamous Forde Report that Keir Starmer commissioned but then ignored because it detailed a “heirarchy of racism” in the Labour Party that put anti-Semitism above racism against people of colour, Muslims or other minority groups (and we may include the Gypsy/Roma/Traveller community) – had previously “spoken out” in ways that confirmed what Ms Abbott was trying to say in her letter:

The article quoted Mr Forde as saying: “Islamophobia, anti-Black racism, isn’t taken as seriously as antisemitism. That’s the perception that came through.”

Of course, Labour’s choice to ignore Mr Forde makes what many consider to be a very clear statement:

So instead of Diane Abbott, it seems Labour leader Keir Starmer may be more accurately described as racist – especially as he ignored his undertaking to the Equality and Human Rights Commission that any allegation of racism/anti-Semitism would be handled by an independent process.

The EHRC has been contacted for action…

… but as far as This Writer is aware, that organisation has not responded.

Other examples of incidents that could be described as ingrained Labour Party racism abound.

For example:

They were on their way to a “kangaroo court” hearing of the case against Marc Wadsworth, who was accused of anti-Semitism when he criticised Ruth Smeeth for associating with a representative of the Tory-supporting Daily Telegraph. We have transcripts of what he said and none of it was anti-Semitic; he didn’t even know she was Jewish at the time.

That’s how Labour treats people of colour. And how does it treat Jewish party members? Here’s Diana Neslen:

That’s how Labour treats anti-Semitism claims against people on the left wing of the party, of course.

Here’s how it treats anti-Semitism claims against people on the right wing:

Put it all together and, once again, we see a clear indication that the Labour Party under Keir Starmer is itself a viciously racist organisation; it uses accusations of racism as a tool to remove people of colour and Jewish people from its membership lists.

But the tactic may backfire; too many people are realising what Labour has been doing.

What could this mean for the party, electorally?

I wonder how many would consider it.

Independent, left-wing MPs would vote with Labour on policies that would help the general population, but would oppose the Tory-oriented policies that Keir Starmer favours.

If enough were elected, they could provide a valuable brake on the kind of politics that has brought the UK to its current sorry state.

And out of the hatred and horror of Starmer’s Labour purges, it might wrest something good.

Hypocrite Starmer condemns Diane Abbott over racism letter

He’s getting ready to give her the boot:

But he’s also showing that he is a monumental hypocrite.

Allow me to refer you, once again, to Barry Sheerman’s “silver shekels” comment:

This happened during Keir Starmer’s time as Labour Party leader so Sheerman remained a party member, unsuspended, with no investigation, with Starmer’s blessing.

For him to condemn another Labour Party member who hasn’t even made as serious a transgression but has still apologised in a full and frank manner is blatant – brazen – hypocrisy.

There can only be one possible reason for the difference in Starmer’s approach: that Sheerman is a right-wing member of Starmer’s crony group, while Ms Abbott is a socialist.

Starmer’s words are yet another sign to left-wing, tribal Labour supporters that the party they once thought was theirs has changed and that they should not support it under any circumstances. That would be a betrayal of their own political beliefs.

Labour’s suspension of Diane Abbott is unprecedented and unnecessary. Here’s why

Diane Abbott: suspended for erroneous reasons?

If you’re unaware of the situation, the UK’s first black female MP – Diane Abbott – has been deprived of Labour’s Parliamentary whip after she penned a letter that correctly pointed out that people of colour suffer racism more habitually than other ethnicities – but did it in a clumsy way.

This Site has published an article about it here.

Public reaction has been split – partly, in This Writer’s opinion, because Ms Abbott is famously the most racially abused member of Parliament. In fact, she receives more racially abusive correspondence than all other MPs put together, so it can hardly be surprising that people who themselves are lower than vermin have latched onto this.

Not only that, but she is a socialist, meaning that members of the right-wing faction that currently controls Labour, together with their supporters, also want her removed from that party. This incident has been their excuse to suspend her, pending an investigation on grounds of anti-Semitism.

There’s just one problem:

Members of their faction have been caught making far more clearly anti-Semitic comments. Like Ms Abbott, they subsequently apologised. Unlike her, their transgressions were instantly forgotten.

Here’s one example:

Claudia Webbe, a socialist MP who now sits as an Independent after being expelled from Labour, has pointed out the similarity, and others have added additional arguments to her words:

So on that level, Labour has no ground on which to continue with Ms Abbott’s suspension.

The other issue is whether her letter was anti-Semitic. Let’s consider:

If you don’t believe that, let’s hear from some Jewish people (although Keir Starmer’s right-wing mob dispute their authenticity – apparently they are the “wrong type of Jew” and you can judge for yourself what that says about the current Labour leadership.

Here‘s Jewish Voice for Labour (JVL):

Her original letter was not antisemitic and the way some critics have rounded on her as if it were is cynical and unhelpful.

As a prominent Black Labour MP she cannot avoid discussing the way Black and Asian people are in the frontline of racist oppression – and the way the Black experience has been downplayed in the Labour Party. This was identified by Martin Forde in his report as a hierarchy of racism.  The wording of Diane’s letter was unfortunate in that it appeared to compare forms of racism. Diane has rightly apologised for this.

All racism is abhorrent – and she has always fought against it. Historically Jews have been major victims – most notoriously in the time of the Holocaust. As Diane says in her tweeted apology, “Racism takes many forms and it is completely undeniable that Jewish people have suffered its monstrous effects, as have Irish people, Travellers and many others.”

The fight against racism today – certainly in this country – is centred on defence of Black and Asian people. This in no way discounts the experience of Jews. Jewish people in this country of course face prejudice and racism, in particular the Haredim, who in their dress are highly visible, but it is not institutional, structural racism that fundamentally affects their prospects and outcomes.

Yes, Diane’s letter should have been drafted with more care – but this is no ground for suspension from the Labour Party.

So that’s the opinion of (some) Jewish people. That would divest Labour of its other excuse to suspend Ms Abbott – except of course that Keir Starmer couldn’t give two figs about what left-wing Jews have to say.

And that leads us to one last point:

Exactly. This is now a litmus test for Labour’s electability.

If Starmer and his cronies don’t reinstate Ms Abbott, then left-wing voters who traditionally support Labour will know that they no longer have a home there and should not, under any circumstances, vote for that party while Keir Starmer and his team lead it.
