We touched on this a few months back

Several explanations have been offered to account for the anti-Semitism that plagues sections of the Labour Party. More than one of them might be valid. For example, there is within the Labour Party an element characterized by a visceral rejection of all things Western and capitalist. Since Israel is both of these to some extent, they reject what it stands for, and equate pro-Jewish as pro-Israel.

  1. So nothing to do with their target constituency who imbibe anti- Semitism with their mother’s milk?

  2. At some point the Muslim-loving Labour Party will start to become not only anti-semitic, but also anti-homosexual – that also being imbibed maternally by the RoP lot. If and when the Muslims vs LGBTQ+ Labour civil war gets going properly I’m going to buy popcorn.

  3. No doubt plenty of Corbynistas are foul anti-semites.

    Nonetheless the Labour Party is well within its rights to reject someone else’s definition of antisemitism.

  4. It will be interesting if some party promotes views on alcohol or diet to please a certain constituency.

  5. @dearieme – i thought it was the lefts position that the victim decided whether something was discrimination, racism or a hate crime . It is certainly the cps view “The police and the CPS have agreed the following definition for identifying and flagging hate crimes:

    “Any criminal offence which is perceived by the victim or any other person, to be motivated by hostility or prejudice, based on a person’s disability or perceived disability; race or perceived race; or religion or perceived religion; or sexual orientation or perceived sexual orientation or transgender identity or perceived transgender identity.” from https://www.cps.gov.uk/hate-crime

    So the labour party rejecting the internationally agreed definition of antisemitism is ok, because the victims are Jewish. ?
    Theres 3 million plus ropers, 300,000 jews. It doesn’t take a genius to do the maths.

  6. “It is certainly the cps view “The police and the CPS have agreed the following definition for identifying and flagging hate crimes:”

    Except when they don’t want to.

    The case of the young Egyptian student in Nottingham who died after and attack on her by a gang of feral street females (who I’m pretty sure were black, the video footage suggest as such, and the fact their ethnicity wasn’t mentioned in any of the reports is a pretty sure bet of non-whiteness) shows that although the family of the deceased said they considered it a racially motivated incident, the police went out of their way at press conferences to say they had no evidence that it was. So suddenly evidence is needed, when the perpetrators are non-white………………..

  7. “An element” is anti-western and anti-capitalist?

    That’s like saying “an element” of the Nazi party was violent.

  8. Whites will still front ZaNu for while longer–but once numbers have grown enough why would the RoP party need whitey any more?

    That is how it will go.

  9. “I thought it was the Left’s position that the victim decided whether something was discrimination, racism or a hate crime.”

    That it is the Left’s view is evidence enough that it is stupid and destructive.

    “So the Labour Party rejecting the internationally agreed definition of antisemitism is ok”: it’s certainly OK by me. And I scorn using “internationally agreed” as a means of bullying someone else into submission. Fuck ’em: let’s have a bit of a Brexit from “You must do this because some bloody foreigner has told you to.”

    “Theres 3 million plus ropers, 300,000 jews. It doesn’t take a genius to do the maths.” I’d be almost relaxed if I thought that all the bastards were up to was trawling for votes. But I’ll bet it’s worse – the Corbynistas really are anti-semites and would remain so even if all the ropers in the UK dropped dead tomorrow.

    Still; shitbags though they undoubtedly be, they are right to reject a definition that was clearly crafted for the express purpose of censoring criticism of Israel.

  10. “Mr Ecks

    Snug–Nah–he joined the Labour Party.”

    Is he related to Smug-Phat-Khunt?

    I’m sure he’s in the Labour party.

  11. France, Germany, Spain, Portugal and quite a few other countries even including Italy at a pinch, are Western and Capitalist. Do all these countries arouse the visceral ire of the Labour Party? No? Then it looks like normal plain anti-semitism to me.

  12. @Jim: “the police went out of their way at press conferences to say they had no evidence that it was….”

    They have just this week passed the file to the CPS. Watch out for it being buried.

  13. “Do all these countries arouse the visceral ire of the Labour Party? No? Then it looks like normal plain anti-semitism to me.”

    What, because the foreign and domestic policies of France and the others are identical to those of Israel? Are you feeling quite well?

  14. @JuliaM: indeed.

    Imagine what would have happened if a gang of white girls had assaulted this poor girl and she’d died as a result of her injuries. Her name would be all over the media for ever, the perpetrators would have been summarily locked up for whatever the authorities could think of at the time, there would be midnight vigils by the usual suspects, it would be used as evidence of how racist a society the UK is, the family would probably have been given UK citizenship as a sop, every word they said would have been hung on like they were Moses coming down the mountain.

    But if the perpetrators are black……..forget it.
