Goldsmith College Students Vote to Ban SWP. What a Band of Tossers!

with 9 comments

 

Goldsmith College Students ‘ Union Official Grub.  

“this week students at Goldsmiths University voted to ban the creepy Socialist Workers’ Party along with its affiliate student society. They also decided to burn the cult’s literature outside the student union – in the upside down world of student politics book and newspaper burning is a hallmark of enlightenment.”

JAMES BLOODWORTH  shutting down abortion debates and banning the SWP – what a terrible week for free speech

Background here:  Don’t ban the SWP! Challenge and protest!

This is sheer, utter gobshite.

Utter utter gobshite. 

Fascist gobshite en plus.

Still the shrimpy tossers look tasty.

  1. An excellent piece on free speech and recent “left wing” enthusiasm for censorship, here:

  2. Shameful. Are they really burning SWP material? I do not think those that do are my friends. Have they seen documentaries from the early years of Naziism?

    Ghastly people who have nothing to contribute.

  3. Agreed that it’s shameful, Pinkie. But the SWP itself has been only to happy to ban, demonise, intimidate and suppress people it doesn’t like. The words “hoist” and “petard” come to mind.

  4. “The words “hoist” and “petard” come to mind”. Well cliches are never far from your mind are they, Jimbo? as is evidenced by your execrable blog. This from somebody who a few days ago called Left Unity members “a shower of shite” because of their failure to attack and maim the movers of a minority resolution, and who regularly makes threats of violence, albeit online, against political opponents.

  5. I honestly don’t understand why you seem to hate me so much, Puss: after all I’m not even Jewish.

  6. “I’m not even Jewish” Yes, that’s evident from your complete ignorance of Judaism and Jewish history, your acknowledged past as an active anti-Semite, your characterisation of central aspects of the Jewish religion as “barbaric” and your frequent references to people who have “obviously Jewish features”. Which does make it rather puzzling that you are so obsessed with the subject. And don’t worry, nobody would ever be frightened by threats of violence from you or anybody else in the AWL – you run away crying from a punch-up with the SWP, and they’re rubbish. Healy and Banda would have made mincemeat of you.

  7. *I’m* “obsessed with the subject”, Puss? Not you, then? By the way, you sound ever so tough and I’m ever so frightened of you and your apparent heroes and fellow anti-Semites – sorry, anti-“Zionists” Healy and Banda. Now I know where you get your politics and your debating style from, Mr tough guy.

  8. “Not you, then?” No, not really. Like you I am not Jewish but I have had two Jewish partners, lived in Israel for a while and have ended up, coincidentally, living in predominantly Jewish areas of three European cities. So I take a passing interest in Jewish affairs and Israel-Palestine, but I certainly don’t obsessively bang on about these subjects like you – given that you aren’t Jewish, don’t seem to have any Jewish connections and probably couldn’t find Jerusalem on a map, it is all rather odd isn’t it?
    “you sound ever so tough”. Oh not me, I am not in the habit of issuing physical threats, unlike yourself. During a mercifully brief period in the 1980s when I had to have some contact with the AWL, i always found the macho posturing of these young middle class twerps rather amusing (they were forever “stitching” and “creaming” and “smashing” the Pabs and the Stals, in their minds at least). But whenever there was a real fight they were nowhere to be seen.
