The noises coming out of #Labour on racism towards Jews (let us call it that) are increasingly hollow.
Let's not even talk about the 1000s of oddballs in & around Labour, who rant on about "Zionists", etc like UKIPers talk about "immigrants", but we know where both are pointing.

One is profiled here in detailed (& mostly ignored by Labour "radicals")…
I asked this question ages ago, with no satisfactory answer:

Labour members, do you like antisemitism or Holocaust denial? Can you spot it?…
Never seen any racist in or around #Labour.

Let me help:

Profile of an antisemite: Mary Findlay AKA @ porridgeisgood…

Note the "I'll raise it at my next CLP meeting." eh?
I am not even mentioning the secret Facebook group riddled with racism against Jews, that everyone seem to miss until it was recently exposed…

& how Corbyn was, apparently a close friend of the organiser, Elleanne Green.
I won't dwell on how a v. senior figure in the trade union & labour movement chose to downplay (polite) racism towards Jews as "mood undermine Jeremy Corbyn"…
I hardly need remind everyone that when you employ a Labour member who talks in terms of raw racism how Jews have "big noses", as the incoming Labour general Secretary, apparently, did it sends a certain message, that antisemitism is OK.…
Not how Labour people defended Ken Livingstone's vile guff even when he used argumentation more often found on the White Power site, Stormfront…
Rather I'd like to pose four questions:

1. How will the Left/Labour ever spot racism towards Jews? When all someone has to do is replace "Jew" with "Zionist" & they're given a pass.

Search any 9/11 truther or Extreme Right site, look carefully - bags of racism
2. When David Icke & his friends do entryism into Labour & rant on about “Rothschild Zionism” what will you do?

Nothing, as the argument has already been conceded when you defended Livingstone’s drivel.
3. After conspiracy theories are found to litter Labour Facebook forums & the British Extreme Right grows until they march in the street weekly, how will Labour/Left intellectually tackle them?

After all, they are firmly against “Zionists” too? & they agree with Ken too!
4. What will you do when the bar for racism aimed at Jews is so high that BNPers can walk under it?

Zilch. & no one will take you seriously on key issues: NHS, workers rights,etc cos if you can’t do the basics (tackle racism towards Jews) no one will trust you to run even a bath

A small thread on antisemitism & the Left's attitude.

I have been a socialist longer than I care to recall.

So it grieves me when the British Left (or chunks of it) don't take racism seriously, promote known racists or dismiss concerns about racism.

It is increasingly common.
I tend to warn people if they interact with obvious racists.

Typically, adults & sensible people are shocked that they might have, mistakenly, helped a racist gain a wider audience.

But not all.

There is a section of the British Left that don't care if they aid racists.
One example:

"You are blocked from following @TomLondon6 and viewing @TomLondon6's"

Tom is v. popular on Twitter with nearly 40,000 followers.

His actions matter, when he says something people listen.

Tom is used as an example by others, quoted as a defence, as a reference.

Bob, pls can I, humbly, suggest that someone who promotes a conspiracy theorist & old mucker of Tinfoil racist, Alex Jones, just might not be a good example?
You will recall when Taxi Artist use to rant on about "Bilberberg", as per modern antisemitic conspiracy theories?
Or the Taxi Artist's efforts to promote the plainly racist, Alex Jones?
