    If you have ANOTHER spare hour, I would also recommend you read through this to get another Jewish perspective on the matter.

    And if you have another spare hour after those, you really need to get a hobby

    I started this article and I am already surprised to learn that most British Jews vote Conservative. In America, almost all (non-Orthodox) Jews vote Democrat

    LOVE this. SHE is the exact kind of person that makes me proud to be Jewish. Any time I try to say anything that isn't completely pro-Israel around my (mostly Jewish) friends, they tend to disagree or not want to talk about it. The conflation of anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism doesn't help anyone, and I've found that it leads to people ignoring actual Anti-Semitism on the right

    What an amazing eloquent woman and what a fucking shitshower the Labour Party is now. God it's so fucking depressing.

    Maybe Labour should just ban all the antisemites and all the Jews.

    Honestly I'm over Labour. Seriously damaged goods.

    There was this article in The Guardian the other day about the EHRC board member in charge of investigating the Labour party for antisemitism having liked and shared dodgy af things himself.

    You couldn't make it up...

    good old SIR KEIR comprehensively failed to prosecute a radio caller who spouted some appalling racist conspiracy theory shit about efforts to make white people a minority during a call-in on a show he was on.

    another day, another great PR story for Labour, the party of inclusion

    It is very important that Labour win back the Millwall supporters in the red wall.

    It doesn't help Kier's particularly poor performance, but interested to learn about who that caller really was. (See thread of posts)

    I’ve got a feeling I was actually facebook friends with her before fucking her off for racist shit. I’m amazed at some of the people still friends with her, people who helped us raise money for refugees. I’m tired now but tomorrow I’m doing something

    I wonder if it's to do with the mindset of some people that are into 'woo' sort of stuff (yoga, crystals etc) - I could see them being susceptible to particular conspiracy theories, which as we all know can be used as an entryway into this kind of far-right racist stuff.

    Theres a guy who is a full on weed growing, barefoot 10 hour meditating hippy I really like, and hes gone that way. Believed the lighter stuff and then constantly tried to ‘open my eyes’ the last 6 months about Trump etc. He’s married to an Asian girl, lives on the island, is a vegan etc. All the hallmarks of a lefty lentil eating snowflake.

    I think it’s because they spend their lives being in all those new world order and big brother theories so when someone like Trump comes along who, like Hitler, just grabs at any conspiracy theory he can fling at a narrative to rile people up, he ends up appealing to hardcore views on both ends of the spectrum. If you imagine you’ve spent your adult life trying to convince people of your outlandish theories and here comes someone with power and influence and suddenly they feel legit. It just makes them shout louder

    anyway, I’m always amused by someone who who believes in patriotism and nationalism, and then fucks off and lives in another country, because controlled immigration is only a thing for the other 7 billion on the planet, but Karen can go where the fuck she likes

    I know plenty of yoghurt weaving, sage burning, crystal loving, yoga practising vegans. Some of them are wankers too. No group is immune from it.

    I know some hippy bitch whose brother is a flat earther and she believes the EU controls the weather. They both have the 'evidence'.
