I enjoy fascists self-destructing. That is my favorite political event. When fascists kill each other for no reason, I think to myself "yes". When fascists win fair elections, I think to myself "no".

The hypocricy is staggering. Party member Annabel Nanninga judged Baudet for anti-semitism and racism.  The same Annabel Nanninga that called refugees from Africa that cross the Mediterranean 'bobber niggers' not too long ago.

But yeah, hopeful developments there. Let's hope the party self destructs indeed.

Yeah, the hypocrisy is strong in this one. I have the impression they have not dropped Thierry for his views, but only because he seems so unhinged lately that it might cost them the upcoming election. On top of that all of the vultures are hoping to succeed him in ruling the party.

I'm getting the impression from the article that he's accusing the whole thing of being influenced/orchestrated by some sort of backroom stuff rather than being done properly?

That was what I got, too.

To be fair to him heís probably right that the whole antisemitism thing has been blown out of proportion, but to be fair to the party, he has been really, really awful at dealing with it since the start.

I've honestly been so zoned out of the whole mess down in England that I don't even know what he's in trouble for saying.

Was it anti-israel stuff or actual anti-semitic stuff?

It's literally nothing. When they're trying to seem reasonable they say that he just let other, unspecified people be anti-semetic. When they're in tabloid mode, they say Corbyn wants to personally kill every Jew in the world by not committing to a nuclear first strike in the event Israel is attacked.

There's nothing to engage with that isn't fevered Tory propaganda - it is best ignored, as Corbyn should have ignored it.

He never said anything dodgy, nor was he even suspended for how he handled the antisemitism inquiries or antisemite cases within the party - rather, he was suspended for saying the allegations were blown out of proportion for political effect by his opponents inside and outside of the party. The guy who gutted Corbyn from the labour party was this lad:

New General Secretary David Evans starts his later this month. Sources close to Mr Evans have told the JC that he is determined to act more efficiently that his predecessor over the stain of antisemitism in the party. As assistant general secretary of the party between 1999 and 2001 under Tony Blair, he played a leading role in Labour's victory in the 2001 election.
A staunch opponent of hard-left politics, Mr Evans is also said to share Sir Keirís belief that antisemitism must be stamped out of the party as quickly as possible if Labour is to be in a position to win the next election.
Mr Evans is also known to be a fierce critic of anti-Zionism, stretching back to his early days in politics at York University.
Who is the political polar opposite of Corbyn in just about every way, so you can see why Jezza thinks he got shafted via political intervention

And, in continuing efforts to battle anti-semitisim, Labor kicked out Naomi Wimborne-Idrissi, from Jewish Voice for Labor (and a member of Labor) as well.

It is a very 2020 mood for a panel of gentiles to judge whether a jewish woman is antisemitic or not
