What heroes. So ridiculously young and inexperienced. Pickford the consistent hero of the tournament. Kane will get the golden boot. So much to look forward to #ENGCRO
Also England across the board - all the youth teams and now the seniors - have been killing it. It’s going to be a great few years
England just need to find one more clinical striker. Hopefully it will be Rashford in two years

We need to wake up to the incredibly serious implications of the President of the United States actively promoting the far right racist and Islamophobe Katie Hopkins.

For those (particularly US people) who are meeting her for the first time, some things you need to know (thread)
She started out as a harmless attention-seeking reality TV star. But in 2015 she saw an opening around the emerging alt right ‘White people in Europe are being replaced’ movement.

She uses language which is common to students of genocide. Eg cockroaches in Rwanda
She is happy being called a racist. She admits she is one.

1/ This is getting even more interesting - now @skwawkbox is positively reporting the collective action against an 100k-followers pro Corbyn (unofficial) FB page which has been posting antisemitic content
2/ Here is a quote from the SB post. Is this the first SB post (ever?) which doesn't deny or attempt to underplay the Labour antisemitism problem? Please do let me know if I am wrong and I will add to this thread.
3/ What does this show? Key parts of the grass roots Labour movement are suddenly acting on antisemitism *around* the movement. The effect is instead of the response being "this is all smears", it is positive and constructive. This is what an institutional approach looks like

This is interesting. The largest Corbyn FB group (… 300k followers)) has put out a warning for people who follow another huge pro-Corbyn group (… 100k followers) that it is antisemitic
The warning is clearly coordinated (which is good, and I don't mean this as a criticism) with various key movers and shakers such as Momentum and Owen Jones sharing it. The comments are interesting...
A mixture of denial (posts aren't antisemitic), support (sensible people saying this is a problem), questions about why the warning posts share antisemitic memes, and people saying that this isn't helpful to the Labour movement which is trying to show antisemitism doesn't exist

This is a thoughtful and balanced piece by @robertsharp59 on the NUJ decision to rescind its invitation to Kerry-Anne Mendoza. This point particularly pertinent…
I'm still a bit torn about The Canary, and if I am 100% honest feel somewhat stung by (what I saw as) being targeted by the editor unjustifiably, so don't 100% trust my instincts. I can see the double standards point as it is clearly a tabloid but is it worse than e.g. The Sun...
... or the Mail where despite lies and irresponsible journalism, journalists still get feted and are basically respected by wider society (and other journalists) because they 'just doing their job'? On the other hand, The Canary has a seriously woeful record on certain issues...

I accept this criticism. I am no world expert on Israel Palestine and have never held myself out to be one. I have a reasonable understanding of how things are in the UK. I also don't think that the IHRA definition and CM are connected in any real way.
The IHRA definition is an imperfect attempt to explain how speech over Israel-Palestine can sometimes drift into antisemitism. No modern understanding of antisemitism can be without that. But it requires a highly sensitive and education-focussed framework to work within.
I am not insensitive to the free speech issues here - honestly I'm not. I am trying to navigate in good faith like many other people involved. I won't go into details but what I say and do here is not all that I am doing to try and build the bridges we need to move forward.

Oh my goodness. I hadn't heard of 'Canary Mission' before this but just checked it out and it is a chilling, actually quite terrifying, US site branding hundreds of students and professors 'racists' their views on Israel Palestine…
Some of the stuff there (I'm not going to link to it) is genuine racism but much is just strongly held and entirely legitimate political opinions about Israel Palestine. And the fact that it would be funded by Jewish charity (see above) is really awful.
I am slow to call something "McCarthiest" but that is exactly what this is - 'dossiers' on activists, professors, clearly focused on Muslim activists. And the fact that it's anonymous makes it even more chilling. I feel like I need to wash my computer after seeing this.
