What Is This Alleged Anti-Semitism In The Labour Party? Is It A Secret? Does It Even Exist?

with one comment

London, UK. Friday 5th September 2012. ‘Freedom for Humanity’ a street art graffiti work by artist Mear One aka Kalen Ockerman on Hanbury Street near Brick Lane. Tower Hamlets has ordered that the mural be removed as the characters depicted as bankers have faces that look Jewish, and is therefore antisemitic.

My regular readers will know that I am no supporter of the Labour Party but I am bemused by the wall-to-wall coverage about what you would think is an extremely serious issue.

We have been given absolutely no explanation at all of what this is all about.

The only substance seems to be that in 2012, Corbyn commented on a Facebook post of a mural in East London which was about to be whitewashed over.  Apparently he agreed that as a piece of art it should be left alone.  Perhaps he didn’t look at it closely enough?  I don’t know and I really don’t care. Ferreting around in people’s old social media posts used to be the preserve of obsessive nutters, trolls and sad young wannabe journalists with nothing better to do.  Now it seems to be one of the BBC’s main ‘news’ sources.

If this mural is the sole reason for all this hyperbolic coverage, what exactly is the matter with the mural?  It lampoons some caricatures of Jews but it wasn’t long ago that we were encouraged to permit lampooning of images of Mohammed as free speech.  This is clear bias, a ridiculous amount of coverage and yet more proof that the BBC is increasingly focused by lobby groups for minorities to the detriment of the majority.

As for the Labour MPs sabotaging their party in puerile demonstrations outside Parliament, what is it all about? I asked on Twitter, “where and what is this anti-semitism” and I received just a couple of replies both referring me to the Twitter feed of a Jack Mendel who describes himself as the Web Editor of Jewish News UK.  The pinned tweet which is supposed to justify this hysteria can be seen here.

There is nothing to see. It’s a conspiracy theory more suited to a spotty, adolescent 14-year old locked in his bedroom stinking of smelly socks than anything remotely serious.

‘Witch hunt’, ‘McCarthyism’, call it what you will. These allegations of significant antisemitism are a smear campaign by an irresponsible BBC and the right wing press.
 
Anyone who denies the Holocaust is simply a fool and anyone who discriminates against those of the Jewish faith is just a sad idiot – but it’s not racism, religion is a choice.

On the evidence, and remember I am no supporter of Corbyn, the far more likely explanation is that this is a smear campaign which is really about the righteous opposition to the war criminal state of Israel and its apartheid and genocide against the Palestinian people.

CLEAR Sets The Pace In The Social Media Cannabis Campaign.

CLEAR Facebook Insights And Comparison With Similar Pages, 20th July 2015.

CLEAR Facebook Insights And Comparison With Similar Pages, 20th July 2015.

Since the spring of 2011, through Facebook and Twitter, CLEAR has provided a newsfeed on cannabis and drugs policy that informs and energises the campaign.

The CLEAR Daily News, available on email subscription here, summarises all of each day’s posts on social media. It provides a quick way to catch up and a record of events across the world in the campaign for cannabis law reform and a more intelligent, evidence-based approach to drugs policy.

A major overhaul of the CLEAR website has automated much of the process of compiling and distributing the Daily News. However, it still depends on the CLEAR team of five or six admins to find and post the news on a continuous basis 365 days a year between 7.00 am and midnight, UK time.

Only The Disgusting Daily Mail Could Make Me Sympathise With Harriet Harman.

Harriet Harman MP

Harriet Harman MP

Harriet Harman and her colleagues have been traduced and defamed by the Daily Mail in the most appalling, malicious and disgusting fashion.

There is probably no politician with whom I more profoundly disagree and who irritates me more than Ms Harman. In this instance though, having been smeared myself in similar fashion, I give her my unqualified support. It is a timely coincidence that the vile Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE) was used in the latest smear attack on me by Chris Bovey and his gang of Twitter trolls.

Snide, cheap, so-called journalists like Andrew Pierce are beneath contempt. People like him (and there are many more amidst the semi-literate underclass of bloggers) resort to such tactics because they are incapable of decent criticism of those they oppose. Instead they seek to repress free speech and argue for guilt by association. It is what the Daily Mail thrives on. It is what demeans British politics, perhaps more than anything else.

The result is that everyone; journalist, blogger, Daily Mail hack, even the chap leaning against the bar in his local, is cautious of expressing views on controversial subjects, just in case the thought police pounce on them. It is the curse of political correctness and one thing is certain – it is wrong!

Quite clearly, to any decent, reasonably knowledgeable person, in the 1970s the National Council for Civil Liberties (NCCL) was fighting against the censorship and repression personified in Mary Whitehouse. It is no surprise to me that PIE should have sought to associate itself with the campaign for liberty. It is absolutely right that the NCCL and Ms Harman, however much they rightly condemn PIE’s aims, should defend its right to argue its case.

The Abuser Andrew Pierce

The Abuser Andrew Pierce

Those who use smear and innuendo in an effort to implicate others in such vile behaviour are as are as guilty as the abusers they complain of. I wish that the Daily Mail should be made to pay very dearly for its abuse. Andrew Pierce should retreat to the gutter where he belongs alongside the paedophiles whose morality he matches.

Chris Bovey’s Gang Of Twitter Trolls.

Impersonation1

This is the serial abuser Chris Bovey’s latest escapade – as vile, offensive and disgusting as everything else he’s been publishing about me since the end of March 2012.  This is the true measure of the man.

I’ve kept quiet about his behaviour and the vast quantity of evidence I have about him but as I wrote last week, I shall not be silent any more.  This is the sort of attack that I have been subject to on virtually a daily basis for nearly two years, all at the hands of the gang that Bovey runs and finances out of the profits from the sale of highly toxic, synthetic cannabinoids.

Just recently I’ve become aware of the way that so many women, similarly abused on Twitter, deal with it.  They re-tweet.  They display their abusers in all their shameful glory. That is what I’m now going to do with Bovey and his gang of trolls. I am going to publish all the disgusting abuse, blackmail, threats and harassment they have been engaged in, not just against me but against my family and my colleagues on the CLEAR executive committee.

This fake Twitter account, as you will see, has been set up in my name a few days ago (my genuine Twitter username is @TweeterReynolds) and has used a photo of me, copied from my Facebook page, which was only taken last Saturday when I was at a rugby match with my two sons.  This has been superimposed over a picture of a public toilet and uses a ‘paedophile information exchange’ header which shows an adult having sex with a child.   This sums up perfectly the typical behaviour and mindset of Bovey and his gang.

There are also pictures of Derek Williams and Mark Palmer (wearing his ‘dealer’ costume when we were filming a video). Derek and Mark are two of the longest serving and most respected cannabis law reform campaigners in Britain. Shortly I will publish an article detailing the abuse that Bovey and his gang have subjected them to. In particular, disgusting intimidation and threats against Derek and the most dreadful abusive bullying by Bovey in person which will shock any decent person when they read it.

I didn’t know what the NAMbLA logo was until I googled it.  It’s the North American Man/Boy Love Association, a paedophile advocacy group.  Perhaps Bovey got this idea from Greg ‘Cure Ukay’ de Hoedt.  He spent six months posting messages on Facebook that I am a paedophile and posting forged sex profiles of me.  I am hopeful of obtaining judgment against him in the High Court very shortly. There must be many people who don’t know the true character of those who set up NORML UK after their hijack of the CLEAR website and theft of our membership list.  They have dragged the good name of NORML into the gutter in Britain.

There is a vast quantity of evidence of Bovey’s abuse which I shall be posting over the next few weeks.
