The Simon Wiesenthal Center has named Britain’s Labor Party Leader Jeremy Corbyn the top anti-Semite of the year — an honor that Corbyn enjoyed once before.
How proud his mother must be.
With the parliamentary elections scheduled for Thursday and Corbyn’s Labor Party trailing Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Conservatives badly, the last thing Labor needs is to be exposed as a bunch of Hitler mini-mes. But the august Times of London has published an article detailing a massive leak of internal Labor Party documents. The article shows not only that anti-Semitism is running rampant in the party, but that Corbyn’s promise that Labor is dealing with its anti-Semitism is a lie.
The leaked files from the main UK opposition party’s internal disciplinary department show that many Labour members, several of whom had called for the extermination of all Jews, remained in the party for months and even over a year and were given a lenient punishment or none at all, according to The Sunday Times.
Jewish groups and others have rung alarm bells over the prospects of party leader Jeremy Corbyn’s promotion to No. 10 Downing Street with increasing distress as the December 12 British election has approached, accusing the far-left politician of allowing a massive rise in anti-Semitism within the ranks of the party, and of being anti-Semitic himself.
There are also recordings of meetings that show dozens of cases of anti-Semitism languishing for more than a year with no action being taken.
What kind of anti-Semitism are we looking at?
Some of the cases involve Labour members calling for the “extermination of every Jew on the planet” and labeling them “bent nose manipulative liars.”
It reportedly took the party more than ten months to expel a staffer from Nottingham who last year said that “Jews represent a viral infection that need to be completely eliminated” and added that he wanted the “complete extinction of all Jews.”
The party refused to say whether it had referred that case to the police.
And when the party finally gets around to “disciplining” members, not much is done. The report notes that “half of 100 cases dealt with between the summer of 2018 and May, 2019 ended with no action taken or with just a warning, the report said. Some members were ordered to attend diversity training — which Labour has not set up.”
Guess they sort of forgot that part.
Meanwhile, the Simon Wiesenthal Center is extremely worried:
“No one has done more to mainstream antisemitism [sic] into the political and social life of a democracy than the Jeremy Corbyn-led Labour Party,” Rabbi Marvin Hier, the head of the US-based Nazi-hunting group, told the British Daily Mail, which reported the story and dedicated an entire page to it.
“If Jeremy Corbyn wins, he will make Britain a pariah on the world stage,” Hier said. “To have a person seeking the highest office who ignored anti-Semitism for years, who did everything in his power to encourage it is shocking.”
I always thought the motto “Never Forget” was redundant in western countries. How could educated people “forget” six million people were slaughtered?
As it turns out, it still wasn’t enough for some people. It’s not a question of remembering. It’s a matter of hate, fear, and loathing. And when people who believe that way get in power, you get camps, persecution, and gas chambers.
The British people are about to be tested as few modern societies have ever been; whether to embrace Medieval superstition and unreasoning fear or walk in the light of enlightenment and knowledge. Ordinarily, it would be silly to dub Boris Johnson a defender of Enlightenment values. But compared to Corbyn and his Nazi wannabees? No contest.
