Behold the arbiter of truth and decency
He was soon back to report “A Labour spokesperson has said that despite saying he would discuss it with Reed after his morning LBC interview, Starmer is to take no action against his shadow local government and communities minister … It’s understood Reed ‘regrets’ the language he used … Starmer’s inaction has managed to unite the Tories and the hard left over his inconsistent responses”. No Tory citation given.
But enough. As Zelo Street regulars will know, no-one should be taking lessons from the Fawkes massive when it comes to anti-Semitism. Their attacks on Ed Miliband were a case in point, with one PMQs report reading like an excerpt from Die Stürmer.
“Every week Cameron looks easier, calmer, more in control of his party, his policy and his election plan - and every week his opponent dances at the despatch box like a spastic marionette … Ed kept asking, his convulsive string master taking another swig of the meths”. Marionette. Puppet master. Deliberate use of anti-Semitic tropes.that comes from this year.
In January, replacement teaboy and lockdown-buster supreme Tom Harwood told readers “Festive cheer was somewhat lacking from one Labour MP over Christmas, who took to the BBC to defend her conjecture Italian tourists should have their heads kicked in. Distancing herself from Labour’s pro-EU stance already”. Really? Do go on.
“Back in October, Nichols had originally tweeted that fans of the Italian club S.S. Lazio should ‘get their heads kicked in’ as they performed fascist salutes before a football match in Glasgow”. Except they weren’t “Fascist” salutes, but Nazi salutes. And the Labour MP they were attacking, Charlotte Nichols, is Jewish. Her rebuke was swift and to the point.
“My granddad didn't risk his life in WW2 to beat fascism 'in the marketplace of ideas' and as a Jewish person I'd rather drop dead than apologise to Nazis”. Absolutely right.
Guido Fawkes anti-Semitism hypocrisy as as breathtaking as ever. Another fine mess.
