    This morning, a prominent islamophobe was suspended from the Labour party.

    Simple's response to it was to have a dig at Labour.


    It was part of a history of tells, from such posters.


    Oooooh he's racist. Oooooooh he's abusive. Oooooooh he gets his opinions elsewhere. Oooooh it's entryism. Ooooooh he's part of the problem.


    They are all common centrist crys. And it has always been nothing other than pure projection, from a dying ideology.


    Oooooh he's not like us we want him banned.

    Have a bit of self-respect you absolute blankets. It's embarrassing.

    Strong bizzie vibes. Luke Akehurst-tastic.
    Honestly, fair play to labour. If he has been racist, he should be kicked from the party. However, and this is the problem a lot of people have on here, Labour continue to turn a blind eye to the anti semitism within the party (which results in comments such as yours about David Baddiel) and it makes it hard to not be skeptical of the reasoning behind their actions.

    I think every one of us wants a racism free Labour Party, you canít just pick and choose who gets the hammer though.

    Been over it, Frog.

    It's not my want to upset Kal. That doesn't mean i can't discuss some political angles (like the one raised by Simple this morning), or that he's always right.
    A different political angle = vague comments copy and pasted from twitter which I am going to hope you donít understand fully.

    Honestly H1ggy, there is nothing wrong with a socialist or a communist. There is something wrong with someone who uses what they are told on Twitter as gospel without putting any constructing thought behind what they are saying.

    I mean, there's been hundreds of suspensions, but crack on.
    There are thousands of racist comments on twitter from momentum and swankbox followers which are constantly ignored.

    I mean you clearly didnít watch the Baddiel clip and you clearly did copy the phrase Ďhierarchy of racismí from tweets like this.

    Am I wrong?

    Progressive.
    The joke Baddiel made was that every time Corbyn talks about how bad antisemitism is, he makes a point of talking about how bad all others types of racism are as well. Which is like going to do the doctor for cancer and being told about shingles.

    Your positioning this as a statement on antisemitism being worse than other types of racism is the latest in a long series of Jew-bating posts that always paints Jews as false victims with insidious motives. You do it again and again.

    Youíve made this a place where I donít feel comfortable posting anymore after nearly 20 years, as a constant reminder of what people really think of Jews. So thanks for that.
    Thank you.

    I saw Higgy's post hours ago and it made me feel like this, and then, because I'm often someone who overreacts, I wondered if it was just me, as nobody seemed bothered by it.

    I think I'm going to have a break, I thought about this too much and it made me incredibly sad - not for Higgy so much, I know what he is, but the continued blind spot for antisemitism on the site (along with the 'gypsy' bashing). I don't want to Godwin shit here but, yknow

    That we collectively have some version of this conversation every other week just makes feel like despite protestations, you clearly arenít interested in learning, self-reflection, genuine concern for anti-racism or the feelings of a minority who feel persecuted by the current political climate and statements you make, share and endorse

    It doesnít work that way. I canít just hang out and chat about football and games knowing one person in the group harbours fundamental prejudiced beliefs about an ethnicity I happen to belong to. These may be Ďspatsí for you but they donít feel that way to me.

    The irony that he's constantly posted about how we're immature, how we should look at ourselves and how we should be embarrassed and then Kal posts about how he feels very concerned about what is being posted and how that affects him and Higgy posts that.....I mean fuck, that post is something else.

    My god, you are embarrassing. Do you talk like this to people in the real world. I mean a lot of us guilty of writing some proper shit on this forum but you win the award again and again.

    That's a peculiar insult. You spinning out a bit here?

    It's been at least a week since a prominent forumite with the emotional IQ of an anvil had a melt-down. Weird how they're taking turns. Is there a rota somewhere?

    Thats what happen when you get Higgy to type more than three or four words.
    He betrays the absolute paranoid lunacy of all his type. He has a lot more in common with the far right nutjobs than any right thinking person on here ever will.
