The Assassination of Jeremy Corbyn’s Character

with 8 comments

While I could never vote for socialism, Jeremy Corbyn provides more leadership, courage and integrity than any other politician in Britain today.  Even considering the entire world and recent history, only Obama and Justin Trudeau could hold a candle to the bright light that burns from Corbyn’s soul.

On this day when we remember the assassination of Martin Luther King, one of the greatest leaders ever, whose dream has still not been fulfilled, I say, look at the small-minded, bickering, pathetic excuses we have for leaders today. Certainly in Britain, only Corbyn has the honesty, bravery and determination that are the prerequistites for greatness.

The conduct of the British press, most Conservative politicians, the many vile, treasonable Labour MPs and particularly the BBC towards him is despicable. The antisemitism smear campaign is so far away from truth as to be worthy of comparison with McCarthysim, the worst excesses of the Soviet era, the KGB, Stasi, Spanish Inquisition, the dissolution of the monasteries, the witch hunts, any of mankind’s most shameful epsiodes. If anything was ever going to turn me against the mainstream Jewish community and into a supporter of Corbyn, it is this. The behaviour of those I have named as responsible is a national disgrace.

Our leaders are inept.  Authoritarian bigots such as Theresa May, incapable of any effective action.  Today she is more concerned with ‘the burning injustice of the gender pay gap’ than with the horrendous murder rate on London’s streets. Politicians prefer to put time and money into politically-correct, virtue-signalling policies that raise obscure minorities way above the majority and the real issues that determine our society.  Transgender ‘rights’ for children get more attention in Parliament and from the media than the essential need to provide worthwhile employment, education and guidance in our inner city ghettos.  We have politicised love, relationships and the mating game to the level where men are unable to pass a compliment for fear of accusations of harassment and abuse.  Homosexual love and desire is given more respect and value than the 95% of population that is interested in the opposite sex.  We decry the ‘porn culture’ yet little girls are encouraged to idolise ‘Little Mix’, girls dressed as street whores as some totem of female empowerment.

The state of our justice system is pathetic but when the tyrant and incompetent such as Chris Grayling, who could only ever be Theresa May’s apprentice, is put in charge, what can we expect?  For a few moments, Michael Gove, perhaps the only ray of hope in the entire cabinet, takes over and immediately wise, innovative reforms are in the offing but just as swiftly, May replaces him with the third rate, timid Liz Truss who achives absolutely nothing.  It is impossible to get justice in Britain today in either criminal or civil systems unles you are rich or you are in the ‘minority of the moment’, viz the ridiculous, politically-correct decision that police officer are compelled to believe every word of even the most incredible allegations of historical sexual abuse.  A decision that has led to persecution, harassment, ruined lives and suicide amongst completely innocent people and then another behemoth of a public inquiry that will achieve nothing except to make a lot of lawyers rich and give our sickening newspapers more material on which to to pontificate endlessly. Which brings me back to Jeremy Corbyn.

Please God that soon, and it cannot be soon enough, we are rid of the harridan monster in Downing Street.  Yet who can replace her?  The entire Conservative cabinet is disgraced.  Though Boris Johnson has some qualities that I value, his rush to judgement about Russian responsibility for the Salisbury nerve agent attack makes him (and his colleagues) unfit to govern – another instance where Corbyn was right all along despite enduring rampant, hysterical criticism from all sides.  I first saw through Johnson when he was Mayor of London and a few more year’s experience have done nothing to iron out the fundamental flaws in his character.  Sadly, the once great libertarian David Davis has been effectively stubbed out by assimilation into the malevolent collective known as the European Union.  He may have gone there to rescue us but he has been absorbed, no doubt exactly as Mrs May intended. The only other possible candidate, Michael Gove, has disqualified himself by his duplicitous and cowardly conduct after the referendum. I blame him for the fact that Mrs May is our prime minister and there are few greater crimes than that.

I am in despair, as I believe are so many of my fellow Britons.  I see no bright future for our country.  Since I was 18, for the past 42 years, whenever I have chosen to vote, I have voted Conservative.  In recent years I was a fully paid up member of the Conservative Party and an approved local government candidate.  What I know for sure is that next time I vote it will be for which ever candidate best guarantees that the Conservatives will be out of government.  If that means voting for Jeremy Corbyn, so be it.

    • I enjoyed your poorly reasoned rant. However, if I may, you say this is an smear campaign against Jeremy. The problem is: a smear by definition is not true and these accusations against Corbyn ARE true.

      • No they’re not, they’re really about his righteous and courageous opposition to the war criminal, apartheid state of Israel.

      • Maybe this didn’t get submitted properly the first time:

        Care to tell me which accusation isn’t true, I’ll make a list for you:

        * Corbyn attended a Jewdas event where they raged against Jewish leaders – the leaders of that group have also tweeted that “Israel is itself a steaming pile of sewage which needs to be properly disposed of”
        * Corbyn was a member of 5 facebook groups with antisemitic content
        * Corbyn defended an anti semitic mural, and when challenged his spokesperson said he defended it on the grounds of free speech – it took until the third response before an apology was issued
        * Corbyn was an active member of an ‘anti-Semitic’ Facebook group, ‘Palestine Live’. The group included Holocaust denial, 9/11 conspiracy theories and anti-Semitic slurs.
        * Ken Livingstone remains unrepentant over his remarks – he hasn’t been expelled from Labour despite over 100 MPs demanding they do so
        * Corbyn refused to call for Christine Shawcroft’s resignation from the disputes panel and NEC despite her trying to drop the suspension of an antisemitic council candidate – on the quiet, we wouldn’t have known if it wasn’t leaked
        * Corbyn was a supporter of Deir Yassin Remembered, attending events in 2013, with the group’s founder, Paul Eisen, a self-professed Holocaust denier
        * Two Jewish Labour councillors in Haringey resigned, saying it is impossible to be a Jewish Labour councillor due to overwhelming anti-Semitic abuse.
        * Jeremy Corbyn called antisemitic terror groups Hamas and Hezbollah ‘our friends’ when inviting them to speak in Parliament – he later defended this
        * Jeremy Corbyn wrote a letter of support for Stephen Sizer, a vicar disciplined by the Church of England for sharing an article on social media entitled ‘9/11: Israel Did It’.

      • * Corbyn attended a Jewdas event where they raged against Jewish leaders – the leaders of that group have also tweeted that “Israel is itself a steaming pile of sewage which needs to be properly disposed of”

        Aha! So this is you deciding that Jewdas are the ‘wrong sort of Jews’ is it? The remarks made about Israel may be in poor taste but they’re about Israel and nothing to do with anti-semitism. I wouldn’t choose those words but it is beyond dispute that Israel is an outlaw, rogue state engaged in war crimes, extra-judicial executions, oppression of the Palestinian people and enforces an apartheid policy with extreme violence. In short it’s a criminal regime run by monsters.

        * Corbyn was a member of 5 facebook groups with antisemitic content

        Being a member of a Facebook group does not give you control over its content, neither will you necessarily be aware of what other members are posting. This is a completely empty allegation. It’s merely a smear.

        * Corbyn defended an anti semitic mural, and when challenged his spokesperson said he defended it on the grounds of free speech – it took until the third response before an apology was issued

        He defended it on grounds of free speech. I agree with him. It may well be offensive to some but so what? Why should Jews be especially protected against other people’s views? When Charlie Hebdo magazine was lampooning Islam, the whole world rushed to defend it on grounds of free speech. What’s different?

        * Corbyn was an active member of an ‘anti-Semitic’ Facebook group, ‘Palestine Live’. The group included Holocaust denial, 9/11 conspiracy theories and anti-Semitic slurs.

        I’m a big supporter of Palestine and so should all decent people be. This nation has been brutalised and oppressed by the theft of its land by Israel and the continuing Israeli sponsored crimes against it. Again you can’t accuse Corbyn of being anti-semitic or supporting stupid conspiracy theories just becasuew he’s a member of a Facebook group in which others are. That is an outrageous smear, totally unjust and disgraceful abuse.

        * Ken Livingstone remains unrepentant over his remarks – he hasn’t been expelled from Labour despite over 100 MPs demanding they do so

        It’s utterly laughable to suggest that Ken Livingstone is anti-semitic. Again, this is legitimate and righteous opposition to Israel being falsely represented as anti-semitic. Livingstone is correct that Hitler did support zionism by the Haavara Agreement. This is a matter of historical fact.

        * Corbyn refused to call for Christine Shawcroft’s resignation from the disputes panel and NEC despite her trying to drop the suspension of an antisemitic council candidate – on the quiet, we wouldn’t have known if it wasn’t leaked

        So what? Who are you to be judge and jury on an internal Labour Party matter. if you, as you appear to be, are a supporter of Israel and engaged in misrepresenting opposition to it as as anti-semitism, then look to yourself. You have serious issues to deal with. In any event, as I understand it, the ‘antisemitic council candidate’ as you defame them had posted something antisemitic in order to criticise it!!

        * Corbyn was a supporter of Deir Yassin Remembered, attending events in 2013, with the group’s founder, Paul Eisen, a self-professed Holocaust denier

        I don’t know anything about it but being a supporter of or attending an event with someone who is a Holocaust denier doesn’t mean approval or agreement with them. Anyone who denies the Holocaust is simply a fool and makes themselves irrelevant by their stupidity. They deserve pity, contempt and to be laughed at. Trying to make Corbyn guilty by association is as wicked, evil and false as the sort of oppression the Jewish people have been subject to in the past.

        * Two Jewish Labour councillors in Haringey resigned, saying it is impossible to be a Jewish Labour councillor due to overwhelming anti-Semitic abuse.

        Clearly they’re entitled to do that. Are you seriously advancing that as evidence that Corbyn is anti-semitic? You have to be joking or think I’m an idiot!

        * Jeremy Corbyn called antisemitic terror groups Hamas and Hezbollah ‘our friends’ when inviting them to speak in Parliament – he later defended this

        It’s entirely appropriate to call people you’re in negotiations with ‘friends’ if you’re trying to make progress. If you continue to call them enemies how will negotiations towards peace progress? There is great wrong on both sides but Israel is the aggressor. Certainly Hamas is acting in self defence. Hamas is to Israel what the French Resistance was to the Nazis: https://peterreynolds.wordpress.com/2014/07/30/hamas-is-to-israel-what-the-french-resistance-was-to-the-wehrmacht/

        In any event, this is about Israel, it’s not evidence of anti-semitism at all.

        * Jeremy Corbyn wrote a letter of support for Stephen Sizer, a vicar disciplined by the Church of England for sharing an article on social media entitled ‘9/11: Israel Did It’.

        I don’t know about this but it’s still not evidence of anti-semitism. Maybe Corbyn was suggesting he deserved a second chance even after he’d advanced such a stupid conspiracy theory?

        Seriously Tom, if this is the best you can do, if this is your ‘evidence’ that Jeremy Corbyn is anti-semitic then it is laughable. All you’ve done is further convince me that this whole smear campiagn is entirely false and based on nothing at all except people who are trying to conflate righteous oppostion to Israel with anti-semitism and that is a truly evil thing to do.

        Israel is a monster and the rest of the world should be treating it as we treated South Africa when it was murdering its own people and enforcing an apartheid regime.

  1. Didn’t even need to read what you have taken the time to write! ( I will read it tho! ) this show how corrupt the system you are fighting against! Itv and the bbc can’t be bothered to get their journalists to do some digging to find that this is just another mccathism right wing smear! *Voxpolitical* has never said anything anti semitic! The author was running in the local elections and three days before the results this smear story was run to block his chances of getting votes! They interfered in an election illegally! You can read everything he has written for yourself! Him and many others are being targeted with lies and words taken out of context! Please take the to read his blog to see for yourself Pete!
