Piers Corbyn arrested for leaflet comparing Covid vaccine to Auschwitz

with 7 comments

For reasons unknown Piers Corbyn thinks this makes his Auschwitz Leaflet less offensive.

I was just walking in Ipswich town centre at lunchtime, to buy some things (milk onwards), and people are talking, briefly, with social distancing, about their fears. The pandemic is, I’m sure it’s the same for all of us, something that people are desperately worried about (we know already of local deaths), and you can add a lot, a hell of a lot, to that.

That Corbyn had got away with his antics for so long is a disgrace.

 

 

The idea we’re antisemitic in any way is completely absurd.

“I was married for 22 years to a Jewess and obviously her mother’s forebears fled the Baltic states just before the war because of Hitler or the Nazis in general.

“I’ve worked with Jewish leading world scientists over the last 30 years,” he said. “I’ve also employed Jewish people in my business Weather Action, one of whom was a superb worker.”

He also said he supported a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Piers Corbyn arrested over leaflet comparing Covid vaccine to Auschwitz

On Thursday, the Metropolitan Police issued a statement saying a 73-year-old man was arrested in Southwark the previous day “on suspicion of malicious communications and public nuisance”.

The force confirmed that arrest was linked to a leaflet “containing material that appeared to compare the Covid-19 vaccination programme with the Holocaust”.

A 37-year-old man was also arrested in Bow, east London, on suspicion of a public order offence, Scotland Yard added.

Both men were taken to a south London police station. They have since been bailed to return on a date in early March.

Confirming his arrest, Mr Corbyn told the Standard that he was asked in a phone call to attend a police station and answer questions. He went voluntarily and was arrested while there.

He said that officers also searched his flat and examined other leaflets there but did not take any away.

    • “Mr Corbyn has a history of controversy in relation to antisemitic conspiracy theories. He has previously retweeted @whiteknight0011, a notorious neo-Nazi who declared that “They will force Trump in to war What do you think happened to Hitler? Bilderberg CIA IMF Banker Gangsters They are the problem” along with four images. The @whiteknight0011 account has since been suspended. One image showed Lord Jacob Rothschild, the Jewish banker and philanthropist, against the background of a Nazi flag, claiming that he controls the world. A second showed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as a puppeteer controlling ISIS through Israeli intelligence agency Mossad, orchestrating the war in Syria and Paris attacks as Lord Rothschild and the Queen look on approvingly. A third image showed the faces of supposed Jewish conspirators who run the world to society’s detriment, proclaiming: “Know your enemy”. The last image showed a family photo of the Royal Family, claiming that they are in cahoots with these Jewish conspirators in committing “the worst genocides, invasions and theft in all history.”

      Mr Corbyn has also claimed that “Zionists” were conspiring against his brother: when Jewish then-MP Louise Ellman complained of antisemitic attacks against her, Piers accused her of using it as a cover for political attack, tweeting: “ABSURD! JC+ All #Corbyns are committed #AntiNazi. #Zionists can’t cope with anyone supporting rights for #Palestine”.”

    • “Jewess” – not a word I’ve come across since I was a spotty schoolboy reading dog-eared Bulldog Drummond trash, “snobbery with violence” novels in the opening years of the 1960’s
