“The more I learn about Hitler, the more I dislike him. He was mad.”Alan Partridge.

“Horrendous” Ken Livingstone on the Nazi Party.

 George Galloway attacks Livingstone:

 

Ken Livingstone has sparked outrage yet again after repeatedly bringing up Adolf Hitler within the first seconds of an interview about Labour’s failure to tackle anti-Semitism.

The former London mayor is currently suspended from the Labour party following a series of remarks he made in 2016 about Hitler supporting Zionism.

He was being interviewed about the failure of Labour to win the north London borough of Barnet – an area with a large Jewish population – which many have blamed on the recent anti-Semitism row. 

Several Barnet candidates have attribute the inability of their party to oust the Conservatives on Mr Livingston’s comments and the lack of action taken against them.

When asked about this in a Sky News interview, he began speaking again about Hitler and Zionism and said that that accusations of anti-Semitism were acting as a “distraction” from Labour policy.

He also said the allegations were part of a “smear” campaign against him.

His comments prompted a flurry of criticism, with Labour politicians ad campaigners questioning angrily why the “irrelevant man” was acting as a spokesman on the issue.

In the Friday morning interview, Mr Livingston said: “There’s a lot of Jewish people – not just in Barnet but all over the place – that believe I said Hitler was a Zionist – that was the big smear on the day I was suspended.

“You only have to go on Jerusalem’s Holocaust website…one of the document’s you can download is about Hitler’s deal with the Zionists in the 30s.

“Hitler wanted to get all the Jews out of Germany and the Zionists wanted to create a Jewish state in Palestine and so they collaborated to do that.”

He then referred to the Nazi party as “horrendous”.

Speaking about the anti-Semitism row in Labour he added: “We have had a general secretary until very recently who just allowed this to bubble on … so many people suspended.

He was then asked if he agreed that his repeated comments were “alienating the Jewish community in places like Barnet.”

  3. Lefties look on a weep, Livingstone, without doing anything of note, was seen by the left as the second coming! Now look at him? They still have not learnt anything and see Corbyn the same way.

  4. I would agree with the last comment by Steven Johnson that the left constantly look for messiahs who will bring the second coming of socialism and the new millenium. It is difficult now to remember the adoration that he was held in by the left in the eighties and after when he was seen as the only thing between Londoners and fascism. The irony is that, looking back through the loony left blogs, Galloway was regarded in the same way as is Corbyn now. The same people regarded Stalin and Trotsky in the same way. Seekers after truth all of them and dangerous if in power. Let’s hope it’s all downhill for the Corbyistas from here on in.

  5. I don’t think Livingstone is an antisemite, however I do wish he would realise that the MSM are not interested in his “explanations” they simply want to keep undermining Corbyn and the wider left.
    Sadly Ken, in that context, is the gift that keeps on giving…
