The threat to Jews from antisemitism comes almost exclusively from the Right, not the Left. Research shows this to be a fact:
But in order to smear a Labour leader that was threatening the influence and power of a few billionaires, the press in the UK – helped by centrists, Tories, Lib Dems and a handful of people in Labour who simply wanted to replace their leader – managed to convince most people that the threat of antisemitism comes from the Left, specifically from Labour.
This is not true.
In the last couple of years I have shown – with research – that antisemitism exists in the UK but is almost exclusively a right-wing phenomena:
Profile of REAL British antisemites: right-wing, anti-Corbyn, pro-Brexit, love Daily Mail, hate Muslims too
While many normal people shared my research on line – nobody in the establishment was interested. Because it didn’t fit their agenda of smearing Jeremy Corbyn – who is not remotely and has never been an antisemite.
Indeed, mostly for petty party political reasons, celebrities and press have manipulated the facts to fit this agenda, ignoring the real facts that show antisemites in the UK are overwhelmingly on the right.
One quick example. Did you hear that Luciana Berger left Labour because she was being harassed by anti-semites?
Then you may be surprised to know that the people attacking here were not Labour supporters at all. They were from the hard-right. Here’s one:
Man who harassed MP Luciana Berger online is jailed for two years
And now, after all these false antisemitism smears against Labour, with Johnson’s victory we are seeing a rise of real antisemitism from the Right:
Anti-Semitic graffiti daubed on London shops and cafes
And a quick scroll through the cesspit of names I monitor of antisemites who are active online in the UK show to a man (they’re almost all men) they are wholeheartedly celebrating Boris Johnson’s victory.
Indeed, well-known anti-semite supporters such as Katie Hopkins are encouraging their own supporters to join Johnson’s party to ‘shore up’ the far-right extremism now engulfing our country.
You didn’t know Katie Hopkins is a supporter of anti-semites? Here she is with a Holocaust denying pal of hers, who thinks she’s “lovely”:
I am the grandson of a Holocaust survivor. My father’s father came to the UK from Austria to escape the literal firestorm that was engulfing millions of Jews and others on the mainland of Europe. For more of my family’s story read this:
Please don’t ask me if I am Jewish if you want a polite reply
But now we see the opposite happening.
The Holocaust survivor’s son, my father, has already told me he is washing his hands of the UK – directly as result of this far-right madness taking hold in the UK – and is seeking permanent refuge in another European country. He is in his 80s and has said he will never set foot in the UK again. He is scared.
I have also decided to move permanently to another country in the EU.
But as a born and bred Brit, that doesn’t mean I will be turning my back entirely on Britain.
So don’t expect to see the back of me.
Lots of people are antisemitic, and racist and misogynist and antigay, comes out like an automatic response, like a fart or belch.
I was amazed that an open antisemitic and anti disabled and awful woman who runs an eaterie of gourmet priced food boasted that Labour would get in as it was a Labour town. They did not. And got the backlash many did.
I do think the members of labour both posh prigs and neanderthals and violent socialists willing to rape, burn people alive smash buildings and kill babies and attack anyone who opposes For the Cause all contribute to Labour’s defeat as they are the only face, Not decent working-class or intelligent moral people.
Got what you got. These base values and prejudices are throughout, including LibDems and even Greens. Not just Left/Right but base throughout. and also hate and pro killing and abusing disabled, after all we are not real people but next to animals so we don’t count.
Not a left/right issue. basic base nature. .
Cant tell you how many times I have been offered to be glassed in the face and fucked up the arse as an older disabled traumatised working class woman.
The proclaimers of the Left hate Older people, Hate Women, Hate Disabled and Hate Working Class. and according to one friend who is deaf and black when he walked in he said “Why are you here? These people Hate You, and also they hate Black and Disabled, felt it the minute I walked in.”
Yeah students, socialists and middle class white artists.
Afterall, I dont matter, that is what we are there for…. by your socialists and awful – who invented them = Community Organisers.

Fear and Loathing in Great Britain said:
Reblogged this on Fear and Loathing in Great Britain.
My immediate reaction to the election was to fear the rise of the far right. Over the following days, I felt I could hear ‘jackboots in the streets’ in the back of my head. It made me want to get out too. And yes, my grandfather was Jewish too, though born in the UK in 186- he was, thankfully, not in the holocaust. Still, I grew up knowing that our family were vulnerable to anti-Semitism if it went to the extremes that Nazis operated. What really upsets me about the constant attacks on Labour for Anti-semitism is that it could prevent the co-operation which has in the past enabled Labour groups to support the Jewish community when anti-semitism becomes a problem. Hopefully, we can overcome that.

The antisemitic smearing of Jeremy Corbyn was started or boosted as soon as he was elected Leader, by the Israeli government to destroy him because he, as many do, supports Palestine. Al Jezeera broadcast these 4 undercover programs about it: https://www.aljazeera.com/investigations/thelobby/
The right wing jumped on the bandwagon. Labour lost the election because it didn’t support Brexit & went for a second referendum not seeing the election as the referendum. The betrayed labour supporters went for Get Brexit Done. There are others reasons too but enough here……….

I am sorry to hear that your father will move to Europe but I’m told that antisemitism is much worse there……….
If I were Able I too would be moving (or have already moved) to mainland Europe. Unfortunately as an older disabled woman without independent resources this is not an option for me.
Wishing you peace and securite Tom x
As I said to a Jewish friend on election night “The Zionists have won the election”.
They have consistently attacked Corbyn and Labour ever since he became Leader.
I wouldn’t be surprised if they are not responsible for daubing AS graffiti.
It is in their interest to promote AS to promote Aliyah and more boots on the ground.
How else are they to continue filling the settlement developments in Palestine?
I’m not Jewish but my heart goes out to those in the Jewish community who didn’t engage in the ‘Corbyn is an anti-Semite’ bandwagon who now feel endangered in the UK. I have no sympathy for the Jewish Corbyn smearers as, by denying us a potentially great PM, they have brought the wrath of true anti-Semites upon themselves and the rest of the Jewish community.
I hope the non-Corbyn bashing Jewish community manage to escape the shitstorm that’s coming but I hope they won’t forget the supportive members of the UK who may like to leave the UK to escape the Tory persecution such as the sick and disabled community but cannot because they lack the funds to escape the UK’s shores. So far, it seems as though the disabled community is being forgotten in everything that’s happening in the UK, despite the fact that thousands in that community have actually died as a result of Tory policy over the last almost decade. I don’t seem to remember any other community having suffered such losses in the same period.
I don’t wish to minimise the genuine fears of the Jewish community as to do that would be to deny the centuries of persecution they have suffered culminating in the horrific Holocaust massacre in Nazi Germany but I hope no one will deny or minimise the threat to the disabled community that the current political situation poses. The death toll may not have reached the numbers suffered by the Jewish community during the reign of the Nazis but it is still significant and will rise in the coming give years.
Please don’t forget those of us in the disabled community who don’t forget the Jewish community.

Typically the MSM and the elite establishment right wing like to stir the pot and want the left ie Labour investigated for anti Semitism. I say how about investigating all political parties and the MSM for right wing bias and anti Semitism so that the left and right are treated equally fair rather than a one sided out of kilter witch-hunt.
Regrettably – Marian – it is unlikely to happen.
What is more likely is that the “clever” zionists will spark a bout of real AS as they have done in the USA [synagogue shootings?].
The Zionists in Israel may have to resort to the Samson Option thanks to their amateurish friends in places like the US and UK.
Be careful what you wish for – and for what you start off…
Happy 2020 to one and all….
Let’s hope someone in Israel will finally wake up and seek a peaceful resolution to the Israel-Palestine situation.
PS: I am not holding my breath……

So sorry to hear that you -and worse your father – feel that way but it has become true in England that the atmosphere is such that you might reasonably fear. Since, I think, the time of Mrs May’s speech at Conference, blatantly appealing to racism, the public space has become what her legislation as Home Sec. calls for; ‘hostile’. I know and know of many ‘Europeans’ long time established here who have uprooted themselves and others, young ones, who no longer know they are welcome. Hope you will change your mind and help us to change this horrible state of affairs.
So sorry that you & your family do not feel safe in the UK anymore. My father fought the Germans was part of the expeditionary force WW2, evacuated from Dunkirk whilst being strafed by the Luftwaffe, he was then posted to Burma & participated in the Battle of Kohima & Imphal were he was wounded by an hand grenade whilst laying there wounded he just barely missed being bayoneted by the Japanese.
My grandfather fought in WW1 both he & my father both fought against fascism they fought so their family wouldn’t be ruled by dictators, which is exactly what we have now in the UK & worse still the far right rising & feeling empowered by our own government, they will be turning in their graves at what the UK has become in recent years.
Wherever you go please let your family know you have friends here who despise real Antisemitism.
Thank You! Tom x
