  1. I note he reserves his ire for Clinton: I wonder what he feels about Trump … some degree of kinship, I wouldn’t wonder.

  2. Galloway will be back. He should stand against Blair, and he should be welcomed back with open arms into the Labour Party.

    AWL Zio Trots out! Galloway in!

  3. An anti-Semite writes: “AWL Zio Trots out! Galloway in!”

    Well, it’s only natural that an anti-Semite would support Galloway, isn’t it?

  4. Is it really, Jim?

    What is an anti semite exactly, Jim?

    Is Jackie Walker, herself a Jew, an anti semite?

    Or is anti semite just a phrase that is used to frighten and shout down anyone who dares to criticize the Zionist and their machinations.

    The LFI and the AWL should be expelled from the Labour Party.

    The party needs the return to front line duty of the most experienced leaders, such as George Galloway and Ken Livingstone.

    Naz Shah can go, she is amateurish and i’m sure even you, Jim, are ashamed to have championed her against the great George Galloway.

    The AWL are a secretive cult like group that have meetings between meetings to sway the democratic process, with bully boy big mouths like Jim ready to shout down anything that goes against their protocols.

    the holocaust is not the issue here. i is being made an issue by people like you.

    zionists create anti semitism.

  5. What is an anti semite exactly, Jim? : Well you, for example, Dean.

    Is Jackie Walker, herself a Jew, an anti semite? Yes.

  6. Hi Jim, i’m asking for a definition of anti semitism, not an example of it.

    can you give me a definition of anti semitism by which i may know whether or not someone is an anti semite.

    is Norman Finkelstein an anti semite?
    what about Brother Nathanael?

    I’m asking for a definition, not an example. you can’t give one, can you?

  7. I wouldn’t demean myself by entering into a debate with an asshole like you Dean. You want a definition of anti-Semitism? just look in the mirror, punk.

    Jim Denham

    October 9, 2016 at 6:28 pm

  8. as i thought, you don’t have any definition of anti semitism. it is just a phrase you can throw around.


    October 9, 2016 at 6:36 pm

  9. No, you asshole: I engage with serious people worth debating with. Not anti-Semitic tossers like you.

  10. For the record I don’t think Jackie Walker is anti-Semite. Why would an anti-Semite marry a Jew (Graham Bash)? I do think she’s politically clueless and Momentum was right to “depose” her but she shouldn’t be removed from the Labour Party.


    October 9, 2016 at 11:39 pm

  11. That’s the Momentum steering committee position, Jason. But I personally think she *is* an antisemite

  12. Again, Jim — an anti-Semite would marry a Jew? Why?


    October 10, 2016 at 6:23 am

  13. It’s just a label. Like all labels, sometimes it tells you something about the person or thing being labelled, sometimes it tells you more about the person applying the label. It’s far more useful to analyse what people actually say than to label them. But it requires a lot more effort.

  14. Hi Jim

    You cannot give a definition of anti semitism.

    that’s because there isn’t one really.

    you need your bully boy buzz words, but they are not working anymore!
    it’s a case of the boy crying wolf, its been done just one too many times.

    If you think Jackie Walker ‘is’ anti semitic, you should be able to say how.
    but you can’t, or you wont’.

    Expel the AWL from the Labour Party!

  15. The idea that you can’t be racist because you belong to the particular group in question is nonsense. For example, travelling around West Africa – I heard some appalling anti-black racism from the mouths of a small number of black people – e.g. suggestions that the transatlantic slave trade was beneficial because it allowed Africans to escape the continent, or bizarre biblical references justifying why black people are inferior. Of course, these attitudes were fiercely challenged my most by-standers – and challenged on the grounds of them providing support for racist cultural attitudes.

    Likewise, people such as Gilad Atzmon and other Jews who play on anti-semitic memes do not acquire immunity by having a Jewish origin. They contribute to a culture in which many Jewish people feel unsafe and singled-out for abuse.

  16. But Atzmon doesn’t consider himself a Jew, does he? He’s an “ex-Jew.” Does Graham Bash define himself as an ex-Jew?


    October 12, 2016 at 2:02 am

  17. But he plays on his (former) Jewish identity as a means to express why he should be taken seriously – as do his supporters. It’s a means of being able to say outrageous things under some assumed protective cover.

  18. Dean: ‘zio trot’ a phrase that could have come straight out of the Stalinist show trials in the 1930s.
    I have no idea what the AWL is but one thing I am sure of — you Dean are an effing king cnut! Why do you have such an issue with Israel? The Sri Lankan army killed far more people wiping out the Tamil Tigers than the IDF did during the Gaza war so are you advocating boycotting Sri Lanka? How about Turkey’s consistent flouting of UN resolutions over Cyprus, do you want to boycott Turkey? or is it only the Jewish state that is the subject of your ire.. I think it is Dean. Im not an apologist for Israel or for Palestinians, both should have their respective rights to a state, but its pretty clear that the mere use of the phrase ‘zio trots’ marks you out for what you are Dean
