UK Labour Party has a Problem, and It’s Jeremy Corbyn
Jeremy Corbyn, the face of the UK Labour Party, is a fool who speaks glowingly of countries like Venezuela where people are literally starving to death.
But he also has a Jewish problem, and one who seems happy to lead a party which contains multiple prominent anti-Semites.
What do I mean?
Per The Spectator, the evidence is seemingly endless, but here are just a few examples that pose a problem for the party with Corbyn as its leader.
“Corbyn came to the defence of Sheikh Raed Salah, who revived the medieval anti-Semitic ‘blood libel’ slur that Jews cook with children’s blood. Salah was arrested by British police in 2011 when he was due to speak at an event in the House of Commons – alongside Corbyn. In 2012 Corbyn called Salah ‘a very honoured citizen.’”
Another: “Jeremy Corbyn had a ten-year association with a group which denied the Holocaust. Mr. Corbyn was a ‘stalwart’ supporter of Deir Yassin Remembered, attending events in 2013, with the group’s founder, Paul Eisen, a self-professed Holocaust denier.”
Yet another: “Jeremy Corbyn hosted an Islamic cleric in Parliament in 2009, who in 2006 wrote that ‘Europe has made political correctness, the cult of the Holocaust and Jew-worshipping its alternative religion.’”
Finally: “Jeremy Corbyn called antisemitic terror groups Hamas and Hezbollah ‘our friends’ when inviting them to speak in Parliament. He claimed the invitation to Hezbollah was ‘absolutely the right function of using parliamentary facilities’ and that the group was committed to ‘social justice and political justice.’ Corbyn later said this was ‘inclusive language I used, which with hindsight I would rather not have used.’”
Labour, in order to be relevant, needs to dump a man with an obvious problem disassociating himself with anti-Semites or groups with a hatred towards Israel.
Corbyn has in the past “apologized” for the pain his words have caused Jewish people…only to go right along cozying up to some of the worst anti-Semitic groups and individuals on the planet.
Yeah, he’s reaaaalllly sorry.
What a guy.
Of course, that’s why Corbyn’s so-called “apology” rings hollow. He clearly meant everything he said and did initially and only backtracked when the pitchforks got too hot for his liking. Or, really until somebody actually took notice.
But I’m not fooled and I’d wager neither is anybody else. Jeremy Corbyn is an anti-Semite. Period. End of discussion. He can try to dress it up any way he wants, but his own history tells the tale better than anything else ever could.
As the saying goes, if you want to see who a person truly is, believe him when he tells you.
I will admit, it is hilarious to see many of the same people who see secret white power symbols everywhere — in the closet, under the bed, in the bathroom! — that will somehow find it in them to make excuses for Corbyn. What a transparent joke those people are.
The facts are the facts: Jeremy Corbyn has told us all — over and over again — exactly what a disgusting, bigoted, and repulsive person he really is.
And I don’t know about anybody else, but I heard him, loud and clear.
As we approach the High Holy Day of Rosh Hashanah, we must always remember that anti-Semitism is still a very real problem and some of the world’s most prominent politicians are proponents of it, whether in the United States or the United Kingdom. Those people must be singled out and politically destroyed.
To that end, I suggest the UK Labour Party get its act together. Because having Jeremy Corbyn as the face of your party and so many key members who believe just he does is a constant reminder that they are no friends of the Jewish people.
In fact, quite the opposite.
