From Jeffrey Goldberg’s The Atlantic, more hyperventilation on the Jeremy Corbyn Nothingburger:

The Populist’s Guide to Scandal, Jeremy Corbyn Edition

Labour’s leader is facing a growing anti-Semitism scandal, but his base looks ready to weather it.

YASMEEN SERHAN
AUG 28, 2018

… Most recently there was the emergence of a 2013 video, in which Corbyn at a conference had dismissively referred to “Zionists”—a term referring to those who support Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish state, but which has also been appropriated by some anti-Semites as a slur for Jews—and declared they had no sense of English irony.

No, Corbyn in the 2013 video was specifically referring to a small number of Zionist activists who had berated the Palestinian envoy after he made a speech a few nights earlier. This brouhaha makes the 2016 six-pointed-star-in-a-Trump-tweet whoop-tee-doo seem substantive.

It’s unclear what irony Corbyn was referring to, though it hardly seems to matter.

Journalistic words to live by: We don’t know what we’re talking about, though it hardly seems to matter.

What stands out is that the Labour leader was openly singling out Britain’s Jews—90 percent of whom identify as supporters of Israel (though not necessarily its government’s policies)—for in his view not being British enough. …

But despite the growing scandal, Corbyn’s most ardent supporters appear to be unwavering. In response to the backlash on Friday, Labour’s Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell accused Corbyn’s critics of “exacerbating the issue” by taking the Labour leader’s comments “out of context.” Moreover, a recent poll by YouGov found that most of the Britons who are following the latest controversies within the anti-Semitism scandal haven’t changed their opinions of Corbyn as a result. …

It’s still unclear exactly what impact, if any, Corbyn’s newly disclosed comments will have on his supporters. …

Just as Trump blames what he calls “fake news,” Corbyn has expressed similar frustration with his treatment in the media.

Left-wing news sites such as Skwakbox and The Canary offer prime examples. Known for defending the Labour leader against negative media coverage, both websites have been at the forefront of Corbyn’s defense throughout the anti-Semitism scandal, publishing posts that have dubbed the accusations against Corbyn as “fiction,” a “cynical manipulation” by the right-wing press, or attempted smears by the political establishment.

That just proves how anti-Semitic these anti-Semites are! The only reason they could possibly have for pointing out the embarrassing fact that the 43 second video doesn’t say what we said it says is their own anti-Semitism.

It’s a seamless circle of logic, when you think about it.

Maybe Corbyn was unfairly criticizing those English Zionist protesters in 2013, but he would have an awfully good case by this point that Jeffrey Goldberg doesn’t understand irony.

    It is being reported tonight that Stephen Miller will serve as a special advisor to President-Elect Trump in the White House. I first saw the news reported in the Jerusalem Post (here). The Post article had quite a negative tone, labeling Mr. Miller a "firebrand" and the primary source of President-Elect Trump's "dark vision". His strong pro-Israel views were only alluded to at the very end of the article. Just as an aside, this is so typical of how low the Jerusalem Post has recently sunk. You would think that a publication with "Jerusalem" in its title might give a little priority to a person's view on Israel over, I don't know, their views on contraception and Mexico. Just sayin'.

    One of the earliest agitators in all this is someone called Paul Staines, who started and runs the Guido Fawkes website. He is virulently pro-Israel and he and his researchers trawl social media for comments made by Labour types about Israel and Palestine. His site is regularly read by mainstream journos looking for stories, which they often steal without attribution. It is also read by politicians for items of juicy gossip they can use against their opponents.

    Staines is a libertarian, as far as I can make out, with some dodgy connections in his past. For a time he had a column in Rupert Murdoch's Sun, make of that what you will.

  5. Jeremy Corbyn: no upper-limit to immigration – video

    Supporting those who oppose Israel is great thinking, It really divides and conquers the opposition on the important issues, while putting you in alliance with a winning team. And of course, steamroller Stephen Miller being secure in the knowledge that Trump has Israel’s back is not what makes him so effective.

    If the conservatives of the UK were not open border anti-white-anti-British fanatics in their own right, you would have a point.
    , @Wilkey
    Part of his logic is sound. If you have open borders, as the EU does, and you let one region of the EU financially collapse or subject it to extreme austerity (as they did with Greece) then you can't really stop those people from fleeing to the more prosperous areas.

    All that is well and good, but Corbyn is repeatedly given an opportunity to voice sympathy for the British people who have been subject to the flooding of their country and he refuses to do so. He is repeatedly given a chance to offer a solution, like removing Britian from the EU (this was pre-Brexit, i believe) or limiting non-EU immigration, yet all he can do is mumble about a need for more government money for housing and schools. The people of the UK (and of England, especially) need to suck it up, no matter how many people choose to flood their country.
    , @Ibound1
    It is quite clear that persons who might otherwise support Labor in the UK now realize that Corbyn is as stupid and juvenile and dangerous as he appears to be. And now they need something to batter him with, so as to get rid of him. They don't want to say his position on open immigration or nationalization will destroy us, because they are the ones who allowed those positions to develop in the first place. Antisemitism looks like a good bet. If you have any residual feeling at all for England, you will call him whatever it takes to keep him out of power. If by some bizarre fluke Labor takes power under Corbyn, it is all over for England. This is the English version of the EFF. Nationalizing whatever means of production you can get your hands on, at the same time expanding welfare benefits 5 fold, while leaving the doors wide open to the third world and voila, you are Venezuela North. And that is exactly the level of "thinking" Corbyn brings to the table. He wants to nationalize the energy industry in the UK and I will quote him:

    "In 1945, elected to govern a country ravaged by six years of war, the great Attlee Labour Government knew that the only way to rebuild our economy was through a decisive turn to collective action. Necessary action to help avert climate catastrophe requires us to be at least as radical."

    "Collective Action". "Climate Catastrophe". "Radical".

  6. Talk about hoejabi. Jeffrey Goldberg has found a female muslim who will do absolutely anything for a buck.

  7. The story blew up because Corbyn was photographed holding a wreath in a graveyard in Tunis. The story went out that he was commemorating the Black September terrorists. Only they weren’t buried there. Then the story shifted to Corbyn being there to pay tribute to the guy who planned the attack. Corbyn’s response was that as far as he was aware the wreath-laying was for the Israeli air strike on the PLO headquarters in 1985 which killed 47 people and wounded 65 including a fair number of Tunisian civilians. It also provoked a strong condemnation from the Reagan Administration and a 14-0 resolution by the Security Council which strangely hasn’t been mentioned by Netanyahu and co.

    Another silly season fake controversy.

  8. No, Corbyn in the 2013 video was specifically referring to a small number of Zionist activists who had berated the Palestinian envoy after he made a speech a few nights earlier

    Was he?

    This is the first time I’ve bothered to watch the video as hysterics repel me but it does seem that he was trying to be clever and funny by applying an anti-Jewish ‘joke’ to the “Zionists” while also clumsily conflating them with Jews generally.

    The clumsy conflation is probably being deduced from the fact that he did not likely know those activists’ histories and therefore was not specifically referring to them when he discussed it.

    Still, this is the latest in a longtime of dull and tenuous outrages over Corbyn when there are so many really interesting things to notice.

    For example, the main debate, that of Brexit, has Corbyn (a secret Leaver) leading and maintaining an iron grip on the Remain side.

    Meanwhile, the second biggest issue: “Austerity” – one that has dominated political debate for 8 years – doesn’t actually exist. Government spending has not fallen as a percentage of GDP. And this is probably Corbyn’s single winning position…

    Finally, we have immigration. It has run at about 300,000 a year net since Labour’s last taking of power in 1997. It ran at a tenth of that before. The Conservatives, when they took power 8 years ago, promised to get it back to that and still promise to do so.

    This should be a key problem for them as they are failing miserably but Corbyn doesn’t believe in limiting numbers so all he can do is make noise. It shouldn’t take much imagination to work out what immigration will look like when he opens the gates further. Just the thought should make him unelectable. Nevermind that nothing would make him happier than organising a Blitzhejira to these shores.

    “Corbyn is no friend of Powellism”

    I know, they’re just trying to tar him with any available brush.

  20. The Encyclopedia Britannica‘s entry on the Earl of Beaconsfield, not at all unfavorable towards the man, (almost) concludes with this:

    He was thoroughly and unchangeably a Jew. At but one remove by birth from southern Europe and the East, he was an Englishman in nothing but his devotion to England and his solicitude for her honour and prosperity. It was not wholly by volition and design that his mind was strange to others and worked in absolute detachment. He had “none of the hereditary prepossessions of the native Englishman.” No such prepossessions disturbed his vision when it was bent upon the rising problems of the time, or rested on the machinery of government and the kind of men who worked it and their ways of working… His pride in his knowledge of the English character was the pride of a student; and we may doubt if it ever occurred to him that there would have been less pride but more knowledge had he been an Englishman. It is certain that in shrouding his own character he checked the communication of others to himself, and so could continue to the end of his career the costly mistake of being theatrical in England. There was a great deal too (though little to his blame) in Lord Malmesbury’s observation that he was not only disliked in the House of Commons for his mysterious manner, but prejudiced by a pronounced foreign air and aspect. Lord Malmesbury does not put it quite as strongly as that, but he might have done so with truth. No Englishman could approach Disraeli without some immediate consciousness that he was in the presence of a foreigner.

    Many other interesting observation in this article, like that Daniel O’Connell personally recommended Disraeli to the electors of High Wycomb in 1832 (he lost), and that improving conditions for Ireland was a major subplot of his career. So a little surprising that his comment about barbarous islanders was directed at a people he had no animosity towards.

    Adelson wanted 1) a nuclear bomb detonated in Iran as a show of strength and 2) Adelson wanted the US military to invade Iran and 3) Adelson wanted the Iran nuclear deal killed and 4) Adelson wanted the US embassy moved to Jerusalem.

    Trumpy ignored Adelson on the nuclear attack on Iran and the invasion of Iran, and Trumpy moved a satellite office of the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

    Trumpy has been disappointing and weak on immigration.

    Part of his logic is sound. If you have open borders, as the EU does, and you let one region of the EU financially collapse or subject it to extreme austerity (as they did with Greece) then you can't really stop those people from fleeing to the more prosperous areas.

    All that is well and good, but Corbyn is repeatedly given an opportunity to voice sympathy for the British people who have been subject to the flooding of their country and he refuses to do so. He is repeatedly given a chance to offer a solution, like removing Britian from the EU (this was pre-Brexit, i believe) or limiting non-EU immigration, yet all he can do is mumble about a need for more government money for housing and schools. The people of the UK (and of England, especially) need to suck it up, no matter how many people choose to flood their country.

    Amusingly, for this site, the only people Corbyn dislikes more than Jews are the English. Nothing will ever feed his dark ego as much as hating his own. It’s Dances With Wolves/Avatar times a billion minus the sexy 9ft tall blue chick. I.e minus the only psychologically healthy bit.

    Jeremy Corbyn: no upper-limit to immigration - video

    https://cdn.theguardian.tv/mainwebsite/2016/06/19/160919CorbynMarr_desk.mp4


    Supporting those who oppose Israel is great thinking, It really divides and conquers the opposition on the important issues, while putting you in alliance with a winning team. And of course, steamroller Stephen Miller being secure in the knowledge that Trump has Israel's back is not what makes him so effective.

    It is quite clear that persons who might otherwise support Labor in the UK now realize that Corbyn is as stupid and juvenile and dangerous as he appears to be. And now they need something to batter him with, so as to get rid of him. They don’t want to say his position on open immigration or nationalization will destroy us, because they are the ones who allowed those positions to develop in the first place. Antisemitism looks like a good bet. If you have any residual feeling at all for England, you will call him whatever it takes to keep him out of power. If by some bizarre fluke Labor takes power under Corbyn, it is all over for England. This is the English version of the EFF. Nationalizing whatever means of production you can get your hands on, at the same time expanding welfare benefits 5 fold, while leaving the doors wide open to the third world and voila, you are Venezuela North. And that is exactly the level of “thinking” Corbyn brings to the table. He wants to nationalize the energy industry in the UK and I will quote him:

    “In 1945, elected to govern a country ravaged by six years of war, the great Attlee Labour Government knew that the only way to rebuild our economy was through a decisive turn to collective action. Necessary action to help avert climate catastrophe requires us to be at least as radical.”

    “Collective Action”. “Climate Catastrophe”. “Radical”.

    "EXCLUSIVE: British Jewish gran, 82, tells how Jeremy Corbyn looked on as she was called 'Zionist traitor piece of sh**' by jeering anti-Semitic mob in Parliament"

    "Theresa May warns Jeremy Corbyn 'anti-Semitism is racism' and demands he FINALLY acts as she backs ex-chief rabbi who said Labour leader made the most offensive remarks since Enoch Powell's Rivers of Blood speech"

    Maybe Corbyn was unfairly criticizing those English Zionist protesters in 2013, but he would have an awfully good case by this point that Jeffrey Goldberg doesn’t understand irony.

    Glad he's taking on the Zionists but, being a leftist, he is for open borders, no? So he's really not that different from many liberal Jews who are also for open borders and not so crazy about Israel. Open borders + socialism = recipe for disaster, like the 8 years of Obama.

    It's just like the US in 2016. Either Zionists + stronger immigration or anti-Zionist but for open borders, which is worse? Pick your poison England. Of course, it could also be the worst of both worlds, Zionists and open borders, like the RINOs and 95% of DNCs, which is what America had for presidents for the past...gosh, 32 years?

    Trumpy loves Jew GOP donor Shelly Adelson.

    Shelly Adelson pushes open borders mass immigration and an Israel First foreign policy for the United States.

    Trumpy took Adelson’s money and satisfied 2 of Adelson’s 4 demands for his Israel First foreign policy for the United States.

    Adelson wanted 1) a nuclear bomb detonated in Iran as a show of strength and 2) Adelson wanted the US military to invade Iran and 3) Adelson wanted the Iran nuclear deal killed and 4) Adelson wanted the US embassy moved to Jerusalem.

    Trumpy ignored Adelson on the nuclear attack on Iran and the invasion of Iran, and Trumpy moved a satellite office of the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

    Trumpy has been disappointing and weak on immigration.

    Trumpy must do two things on immigration:

    I don’t think it’s occurred to the left that if they get rid of their traditional white leaders, they’re in big trouble. Look at Florida and New York. When people like Gillum and Ocasio-Cortez win primaries, it’s a sign than traditional Democratic whites weren’t showing up to vote for their usual Democratic white candidate. They’ve bolted the party. They’re now either Independents or Republicans. But in general, it’s going to make the Democratic middle start voting for right-wing candidates when their choice is some screechy, extremist neurotic nut of color. I repeat, when some nut starts winning primaries in traditional white areas, it means the whites have walked out of the Democratic party.

    I’m not too sanguine about our future. You can fracture the country’s vote along horizontal age lines and still get along all right. The young expect their elders to vote conservative, and the elders expect their young to vote liberal. But when the vote starts splitting in a vertical way, namely young against young and elder against elder, you’re heading towards civil war.

    Our stability will benefit if we start denying scholarships to people of color. Let them make their own way, the way the vast majority of whites do.

    Recently, the focus has been on a new code of conduct the party has adopted on anti-Semitism, with critics concerned that it does not go as far as the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance's guidelines.
     
    Not good enough to please the Idolators of Holocaustianity.

    Mr Watson called for Mr Corbyn to adopt the full definition of anti-Semitism in his interview on Sunday, and also said internal inquiries into Jewish Labour MPs Margaret Hodge and Ian Austin should be dropped.
     
    That's the US definition AFAIK, whereby criticism of Israel is Strengstens Verboten.

    Earlier:


    Dame Margaret accused Labour of "playing around" with the international definition, and said she had gone to tell Mr Corbyn he was "perceived as being anti-Semitic". She denied reports she had sworn at him.
     
    Okay. Because not accepting the "international definition" (more like the "globalist definition" amirite) lock, stock and barrel is just NOT done. Don't play around with scripture!

    Mr Willsman, an ally of Mr Corbyn, was recorded during a National Executive Committee meeting suggesting Jewish "Trump fanatics" were behind accusations of anti-Semitism in Labour ranks and saying he had never seen anti-Semitism in the party.

     

    Shut up you twat.

    He later apologised and said not all of his remarks were accurately reported. A party source said earlier this week that the apology meant the matter had been resolved.
     
    He shut up.

    Mr Corbyn also stressed that people who hold anti-Semitic views "have no place in the Labour Party" and said people who use "anti-Semitic poison" are not his supporters, nor do they speak for him or the party.

    He has repeatedly condemned anti-Semitism and has previously said he is "sincerely sorry".
     

    Don't apologize idiot.

    But The Campaign Against Antisemitism criticised the video for being "insincere" and said Mr Corbyn had failed to address his own issues with anti-Semitism.

    Gideon Falter, chairman of the group, said: "It is just another contradictory, hypocritical, insincere attempt to whitewash his own role as the author of this nightmare."

    But people around here are so deranged about Israel / Jews that they will literally support someone who wants to implement the opposite of their world view, just to make Jews mad.

    No, it’s simply that Corbyn should be opposed on other grounds. It’s better to have Corbyn walk on the charge of anti-Semitism than to use it to bring him down. Why? Because we’re worse off living in a world in which the Special Ones get to decide who can or cannot take part in public life.

    Dear Mr. Goldberg,

    By focusing on the anti-Semitic statements of the British opposition leader, you simply reinforce the toxic Anglo-normative aspects of American white supremacist identity, which for too long has envisioned a so-called ‘special relationship’ with people who think they are British. Yet ever since President Obama showed us the way toward a more perfect union by overthrowing the bust of Winston Churchill in single combat atop Niagra Falls, banishing his gross visage forever from the White House, British Labor anti-Semitism is not exclusively who we are anymore. Did you ever consider the anti-Semitism of the Malaysian Shadow Minister of Transportation? Or the anti-Semitism of the South African Outreach Coordinator for At-Risk Maurauding Youth? And what about the Assistant Safety Inspections Director of Recreational Facilities (golf course architecture standards compliance) of Lima, Peru? In Current Year America, all these anti-Semitisms are who we are now.

    In short, wypopo must have the courage to not be so fragile anymore. You will be racist for not celebrating Meghan Markle as the nicest, bravest, good-hairingest princess of all time, and racist for celebrating her too much because of her Anglo-normative identity at the expense of more diverse princesses, like Fatima al-Qlit Chopp bint Ali of the north Chad mountain Berbers. Get over it!

    The Encyclopedia Britannica's entry on the Earl of Beaconsfield, not at all unfavorable towards the man, (almost) concludes with this:

    He was thoroughly and unchangeably a Jew. At but one remove by birth from southern Europe and the East, he was an Englishman in nothing but his devotion to England and his solicitude for her honour and prosperity. It was not wholly by volition and design that his mind was strange to others and worked in absolute detachment. He had “none of the hereditary prepossessions of the native Englishman.” No such prepossessions disturbed his vision when it was bent upon the rising problems of the time, or rested on the machinery of government and the kind of men who worked it and their ways of working... His pride in his knowledge of the English character was the pride of a student; and we may doubt if it ever occurred to him that there would have been less pride but more knowledge had he been an Englishman. It is certain that in shrouding his own character he checked the communication of others to himself, and so could continue to the end of his career the costly mistake of being theatrical in England. There was a great deal too (though little to his blame) in Lord Malmesbury’s observation that he was not only disliked in the House of Commons for his mysterious manner, but prejudiced by a pronounced foreign air and aspect. Lord Malmesbury does not put it quite as strongly as that, but he might have done so with truth. No Englishman could approach Disraeli without some immediate consciousness that he was in the presence of a foreigner.
     
    Many other interesting observation in this article, like that Daniel O'Connell personally recommended Disraeli to the electors of High Wycomb in 1832 (he lost), and that improving conditions for Ireland was a major subplot of his career. So a little surprising that his comment about barbarous islanders was directed at a people he had no animosity towards.

    Barbarity is not entirely an evil.

    This isn’t chutzpah, it’s Goldberg being thick as a brick. Evidently it’s a prerequisite for getting anywhere these days.

    There’s a lot of scattered evidence that Jeffrey Goldberg really is a Jewish equivalent of a fourth-generation decadent WASP falling-upward moron who would be played by Chevy Chase confidently inserting his hand in a toaster. Probably the best one thing to show people is that awkward love fest with Ta-na-Genius where they celebrated firing that National Review writer.

  65. Jews are just scared. It’s fear that motivates them, not malevolence. Brexit scared them, Trump scares them, now Corbyn scares them. It’s tempting to mock them for this paranoia (see Margaret Hodge), but that just reinforces it, so is counterproductive.

    The problem is the rest of us would like to get on with self-government and having a living culture. Jews can't keep running into the middle of our water fights with a squirt gun and then start screeching about how they're terrified of getting wet. Either go live like the Amish or grow a thicker hide.

    I am curious about the difference between malevolence and unjustified existential defensiveness.

    Considering the way this story stops Labour talking about other politics and the way in which Brexit is the other politics, this story is doing yeoman's work. Although it is embarrassing for the Jews, may it run for the next two months until the Brexit deal is in place and we are guaranteed to leave the EU.

    Then let us never talk about it again and finally get to grips with our borders, ban foreign buying of residential property and implement a 10% corporate tax rate. Essentially, fix supply and demand in the interests of British citizens and watch Corbynism deflate.

    If Jews don’t want to get stuck, they should stop acting like imbeciles.

    If only.

    Really who cares, these people should all burn.

    Jeremy Corbyn apologises for hurt caused to Jewish people by anti-Semitism

    Translation: 100% Thought Control has not been achieved in this party. But we will yet succeed.


    It comes as his deputy Tom Watson warned the party could "disappear into a vortex of eternal shame" and be unfit to lead if it did not tackle the issue.

     

    "In this Vortex Of Eternal Shame"? A song by The Bangles?

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PSoOFn3wQV4


    Recently, the focus has been on a new code of conduct the party has adopted on anti-Semitism, with critics concerned that it does not go as far as the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance's guidelines.
     
    Not good enough to please the Idolators of Holocaustianity.

    Mr Watson called for Mr Corbyn to adopt the full definition of anti-Semitism in his interview on Sunday, and also said internal inquiries into Jewish Labour MPs Margaret Hodge and Ian Austin should be dropped.
     
    That's the US definition AFAIK, whereby criticism of Israel is Strengstens Verboten.

    Earlier:


    Dame Margaret accused Labour of "playing around" with the international definition, and said she had gone to tell Mr Corbyn he was "perceived as being anti-Semitic". She denied reports she had sworn at him.
     
    Okay. Because not accepting the "international definition" (more like the "globalist definition" amirite) lock, stock and barrel is just NOT done. Don't play around with scripture!

    Mr Willsman, an ally of Mr Corbyn, was recorded during a National Executive Committee meeting suggesting Jewish "Trump fanatics" were behind accusations of anti-Semitism in Labour ranks and saying he had never seen anti-Semitism in the party.

     

    Shut up you twat.

    He later apologised and said not all of his remarks were accurately reported. A party source said earlier this week that the apology meant the matter had been resolved.
     
    He shut up.

    Mr Corbyn also stressed that people who hold anti-Semitic views "have no place in the Labour Party" and said people who use "anti-Semitic poison" are not his supporters, nor do they speak for him or the party.

    He has repeatedly condemned anti-Semitism and has previously said he is "sincerely sorry".
     

    Don't apologize idiot.

    But The Campaign Against Antisemitism criticised the video for being "insincere" and said Mr Corbyn had failed to address his own issues with anti-Semitism.

    Gideon Falter, chairman of the group, said: "It is just another contradictory, hypocritical, insincere attempt to whitewash his own role as the author of this nightmare."
     

    The Inquisition has watched your video with great interest and found you to be .... "insincere". You must self-criticize more deeply, then go to the wailing wall wearing kippa as Obama did. But we can't promise anything about your case being resolved, ever.

    The irony is that Red Corbyn gets a taste of Soviet showtrials.

    And maybe that the only thing Jewry can still celebrate with gusto is not getting completely wiped out in some shitty European killfest.

    "But it was all right, everything was all right, the struggle was finished. He had won the victory over himself. He loved Big Brother"

    Jews unter alles is even less of a workable political slogan than Jews uber alles. It’d behoove those on the dissident right to remember that. Ctrl f I is the issue.
