Daniel Margrain - What the Ken Livingstone resignation is really all about

Is it possible that pro Israel Labour groups are racist because of the views they hold about Palestinians? Labour party members that support the rights of Palestinians and point out Israel's crimes are likely to be called racists and be expelled from the party. Things have gone too far, maybe I should join the Labour Party to fight the racist Zionist Labour groups? KV

It is a sad indictment on modern politics that the long-standing socialist, Ken Livingstone who fought most of his political life fighting racism has, at the time of writing, been hung out to dry by a political party he had been a member of for decades.
Had Ken not formerly offered his resignation, almost certainly he would have gone the way of another veteran anti-racist activist, Marc Wadsworth, who was expelled from the party ostensibly for ‘anti-Semitism’ but more accurately for bringing the Labour Party into disrepute.
It could be reasonably argued that on the latter grounds, Wadsworth’s suspension was justified given that he had inappropriately verbally attacked a Labour MP during a press launch showcasing an important report. But then this begs the question why it is the case that the 80 Labour Friends of Israel members whose actions undermine social democratic values within the party have not been expelled for what are obviously far more serious offences?
Wadsworth’s ‘affront’ to the party hierarchy was, not that he should have pursued a more suitable avenue in which to attack his target, but that the said target was former British Israel Communications and Research Centre (BICOM) employee and Israel lobbyist, Ruth Smeeth MP. Any hope that Wadsworth would receive a fair hearing was dashed the moment his Israel lobby critics unjustly accused him of anti-Semitism.
50 right-wing and pro-Israel parliamentarians proceeded to intimidate Wadsworth at his hearing by effectively demanding his political lynching. A similar show trial scenario predicated on yet more spurious anti-Semitism charges would almost certainly have been used to drive Livingstone out of the party had he decided not to voluntarily resign in the manner he did.
The kind of McCarthyite hounding of anti-racist and pro-Palestinian activists from the party in recent years is indicative of the attempts by the Labour hierarchy to purge of all prominent anti-Israel activists as part of the Israel lobbyists broader attempt to undermine pro-Palestinian, Corbyn.

Politics is a childish occupation in which morons compete to be part of the “in” crowd, and compete to keep others out of the “in” crowd. This competition involves weapons such as the charge of “racist,” “sexist,” “anti-Semite,” and so on. Politicians use these weapons against each other. Many regular people also use these weapons against each other. This is what keeps Jews in power, and what sustains their “six million”™ hoax. One politician can easily destroy another by calling him a “holocaust denier.”

Therefore, if you joined the Labour Party, and you failed to grovel to Jews, and to worship their atrocities, your competitors would attack you as an “anti-Semite.” Actually most people would attack you, since most people play this same pathetic game.

“It is a sad indictment on modern politics that the long-standing socialist, Ken Livingstone who fought most of his political life fighting racism has, at the time of writing, been hung out to dry by a political party he had been a member of for decades.”

Livingstone was a humanitarian. There is no place for such people in Anglo-American politics. The REALLY kind humanitarian leaders are called “dictators” who are bent on “enslaving the world.” They are accused of everything imaginable. One was even accused of gassing six million Jews.

Regarding Marc Wadsworth, junior politicians are always seeking to get ahead. They use the charge of “anti-Semitism” to eliminate more senior politicians, so the junior ones can take their place.

When a political lynch gang forms, most politicians eagerly join the lynch gang in order to avoid becoming of the lynched. It’s the like the Reign of Terror during the French Revolution, albeit not quite as blood-soaked.

Have you seen this film, Konrad?

No. I will watch it right now.

It will blow your mind. I'm not saying I agree with everything in it, as there is no evidence, but i think the gist is about right. Francis Richard Connolly opened my eyes to how the ruling elite find war very profitable and how evil they are.

I've seen that video before. It is funny them calling Palestine their country. The problem is that the Israels know what they are doing to other countries with forced immigration and they don't want to happen to them.
