Hang on, they’re claiming he’s anti-semitic because he blocked them on fundamental Human Right that is Twitter?

Fuck these goggle eyed loonies. Hate them

Oh great, now when Jews actually do experience left-wing antisemitism we’re just going to be accused of lying again, thanks to these twats. Really not helping.

NIP aren’t running in Manchester.

I suspect its "friends of Israel" rather than actual Jewish people stirring this pot?

Yeah, the sad thing is, as Kankurette says, it doesn't really make much difference who starts this vile stuff off, it still promotes aggression, feelings of mistrust and alienation.  It's designed to divide us.  All very negative - and tbh, unless you've watched this lot in action over time, it's really easy to take some of what they do at face value - if you're not aware of the context and history. 

A bit like TERF Wars - I mean, speaking as a feminist and a woman who's suffered male violence, it's easy to get sucked into sympathising with these cunts - safe spaces for vulnerable women, what's not to like? 

This is the horror that is the weaponisation of hate crimes.  IMO, a hate crime in itself.

Stayed up all night working on this, think I found a subtle flaw:



If my theory is correct, then the NIP must be stopped before it is too late.

Even if it is, we'll still get blamed.

Before anyone asks, I don't think the NIP is antisemitic, mainly because I haven't seen anything to suggest they might be. I'm more worried about Reform UK, tbh.

I feel your concern, absolutely and I don't think you're completely wrong, these things always have a nasty way of filtering into the culture without being seen for what they are.  But I believe and hope that, because this is not the first time these same individuals have used this same tactic, many more people will see it for what it is (and see those specific people pushing it as acting in bad faith).

Also, I think, there are already intelligent brave people, who are not affiliated to NIP and are Jews, standing up and saying what they see.  Solidarity is a beautiful thing.

Then it is all our jobs to stamp the false actors of anti-semitism into the dust, metaphorically. The true anti-semites will have to come out into the daylight, then.

Wow, just saw this linked by Shoulders in the Labour thread.

Quote
The purge of left-wing Labour members continues. Andrea Bradley - the former candidate for Bentley and Darlaston - has been deselected despite being democratically elected by her local branch in September 2019.

Andrea, a Momentum member and supporter of former party leader Jeremy Corbyn received an email from Labours West Midlands Regional Office, telling her a complaint that had been made regarding the original selection had been upheld. A short selection process then took place without the knowledge of the local branch, Constituency Labour Party or Local Campaign Forum. The democratic decision of the branch was then overturned by Region in favour of the incumbent sitting councillor Angela Underhill.

Just a month ago, the official Labour Party website was advertising for volunteers to phonebank for Andrea...

Andrea has told The Prole Star she believes it was done at short notice to prevent her from taking legal action. She also believes that a senior local figure - who she didn't want to name at this stage - was the instigator. Stating "There is more I could say about this but can't say more as I am fearful of further punitive action, which might follow."

Andrea had spent the last 18 months campaigning, which included the distribution of thousands of leaflets and knocking on hundreds of doors. And had even gone part-time at work so she could commit more time.

Andrea believes that the basis of it all was her Momentum membership and that she is a supporter of former leader Jeremy Corbyn.

In a Facebook post which has been widely shared Andrea Wrote "This whole saga shows the complete contempt with which our membership is treated. The total disregard for democracy."

A Facebook user commented "It's things like what's happened to Andrea Bradley that made me leave the Labour Party after 40 years of campaigning. They won't be getting my vote at the next election that's for sure. The Northern Independence Party get my vote."

How many of those 40K joined in the last month or so, that's the interesting bit.

53K now, so that's 13K more in eight days.  Interesting.

That's gas.  Like this one, another slight that they've embraced, too - maybe because I love whippets and horses.  But I love their good natured self-deprecating humour, they will not be humiliated.

Think they're an homage/joke but I haven't bothered reading too much on their twitting because they didn't come across as more than a stolid parody.  Obvs fine but there's only so much of that you can take (not much) if it's not spiced with wit, before you go off and read something genuinely amusing or interesting.
