Jeremy Corbyn and The Jewish Question

Jeremy Corbyn

It goes without saying that a Far Left Marxist such as Jeremy Corbyn is no friend to white people, in any sense.

According to Corbyn:

My constituency has people from probably 70 different countries living there, a very large number of languages.

“People understand the difference of cultures, and I think children growing up in a multicultural society have a very good understanding of the rest of the world.

However, like so many Leftists Corbyn does not believe all people should be ethnically cleansed and replaced in their own lands, Corbyn and the Far Left would not batter an eyelid if England became as ethnically black as Sudan, but they do care about Palestinians and they do tend to see Israel as an illegitimate outpost of the Western  Capitalist Hegemony. And so elements on the Left are inadvertently wandering into the electrified fence which contains public discourse. Jeremy Corbyn is alleged to have given cash to Holocaust deniers, he’s called Pro Terror Muslim groups ”My friends” and he could very well become the Leader of the Labour Party. When  ”populism”  is wandering this far off the grid the electric fence is dispensed with and the cultural gatekeepers rush in and attempt to put the rogue cattle down with a captive bolt. On the Right we saw this same story play out recently with UKIP, and now we see it again with Corbyn as our gloriously ”Free Press” line up as one do dowse the flames of public dissent.

Jewish writer Nick Cohen at the Spectator sets the tone:

I am putting it as politely as I can when I say we had limited support from mainstream commentators and politicians of the centre left. They didn’t want to criticise ‘our side’.

They didn’t want to admit that racism (in its anti-Semitic form) was as much a problem for the left as the right. They didn’t want to puncture the phoney air of righteousness which surrounds left-wing politics like a cloying perfume, or ‘distract’ themselves from the fight against the Tories

They didn’t want to know. Well they know now.

Within the British media Breitbart London likes to pass itself off as an edgy non PC outlet, and to be fair they do push the boundaries on some subjects, they were good on the mass rape of white girls by Pakistanis, but in the end they are just another Jewish run Neo-Con outfit and their reaction to the Corbyn problem was always going to be predictable. As James Delingpole proves in his piece ”Some of Jeremy Corbyn’s Friends Are Not Jewish“:

Anti-semitism is bang on trend in left-wing circles these days. A friend who attended a dinner party in the company of various Labour grandees – including a former senior minister from the Blair era – reports that the hatred towards Jews in general and Israel in particular was so blatant it was like attending an editorial meeting of Der Stürmer.

You might expect the mainstream Left’s reaction to these Nazi slurs to be damning, after all, what is the point of having a Left and Right if they both Shut Down unorthodox opinion, unfortunately gay Marxist Owen Jones is getting on board, writing at the Guardian:

If you stand on platform 17 of Berlin-Grunewald railway station, the horror of antisemitism never leaves you. I stood there with my friend, silently trying to fathom what befell his grandmother’s relatives as they were deported to Latvia, where they would end up gunned down in forests…

 I write this in a cafe full of laughing customers, cheesy music blaring in the background. A platform full of families with screaming children being squeezed together in unbearable conditions, on their way to be massacred and buried anonymously in mass graves, is a nightmarish parallel universe beyond my comprehension. But it happened. And it wasn’t some mid-20th century aberration that came out of nowhere, a bafflingly horrific episode in human history resulting from sudden mass insanity. This was the culmination of hundreds of years of antisemitism: pogroms, blood libel, scapegoating.

The ever hysterical Dan Hodges writing at the Daily Telegraph agrees:

 The Labour party used to be clear on this stuff. Zero-tolerance of racism. Zero-tolerance of apologists for racism. No platform for racism.

And now that’s gone. It’s all gone. Holocaust deniers. Blood Libelers. Anti-semitic conspiracy theorists. Terrorist sympathisers. Terrorists. We are Labour. How wide and how high would you like your platform to be?

I have been one of the Labour Party’s fiercest critics. But I never thought I’d see this day: the day Labour started to launder prejudice. The day its commitment to standing against all forms of bigotry was so casually slaughtered on the altar of political ideology and expediency.

Soon Jeremy Corbyn will become Labour leader. When he does, his supporters will cheer his victory. And Paul Eisen and Stephen Sizer and Raed Salah and Dyab Abou Jahjah will pause a while from Holocaust denial, and conspiracy theories and Blood Libel and dreams of dead British soldiers. And they will stand at the very top of their platforms. And they will cheer his victory too.


Labour MP, John Mann, went further still, demanding that the leadership elections of his own party be Shut Down because:

“It should be halted,” he said. “It is becoming a farce with long-standing members … in danger of getting trumped by people who have opposed the Labour Party and want to break it up, expressly want to break it up – some of it is the Militant Tendency types coming back in.”

And who is John Mann you ask? well:

John Mann chairs the All-Party Parliamentary Group against Antisemitism.[12] The Group commissioned the All-Party Parliamentary Inquiry into Antisemitism in 2005. The inquiry panel, chaired by former Europe Minister Denis MacShane, gathered written and oral evidence on antisemitism in Britain and published a report of their findings on 7 September 2006. The panel’s recommendations included improved reporting and recording of antisemitic attacks; a crackdown on anti-Jewish activity on university campuses; and improved international co-operation to prevent the spread of racist material online. In May 2009 John Mann received the American Jewish Committee’s Jan Karski Award in recognition of his commitment to fighting antisemitism in all of its forms.

Sitting out in the badlands of the ”Far Right” and looking across into the distance at this spectacle is both highly amusing and informative. All of the tactics which the Left have deployed against the Far Right are now being turned around onto themselves. The ”No Platform” mantras, the endless Holo-Guilt, the absurdly hysterical reaction of the controlled press. The difference is, we know who the man behind the curtain is, the Left seem to have stumbled into him while still blind folded. In his Breitbart piece James Delingpole concluded with:

Basically, if you don’t believe in free market capitalism, then the Jews are an affront to human decency.

That’s an interesting admission, but it could equally be said that if you are opposed to dispossessing people from their lands, mass population transfers, permanent debt based economies, a controlled press and the warping of the entire political process to suit the interests of one ethnic group, then yes, the Jews are an affront to human decency.
