Labour at it again... anti-Semitism... #II

Discussion in 'off topic' started by Stunsworth, Jul 7, 2019.

  1. TheDecameron

    TheDecameron Unicorns fart glitter.

    Using an ice axe on someone in the heat of August in Mexico was certainly an interesting use of poetic symbolism.

    Sorry - got his name wrong. Although you knew who I meant tbf that wasn't deflection.

    Criticising the journalist/programme, and especially before prog' aired, continues to be a deflection.

    Gentile Labour supporters/activists/office holders et al are the real victims of Labour's AS problems?

    I agree it isn't easy, but not 'far from'.
    That's ime, but my employer's management structure had a clearly signposted and strictly enforced 'no tolerance' policy.
    istm re: anti-Semitism this is what's lacking in Labour - hence many years of failure to resolve.

    It appears you can't see the wood for the trees. Or the shoals for the lil' fish.

    istm a risk/blind spot for us lefty progressive types is believing we, and the orgs we support, couldn't possibly be prejudiced or bigoted.
    This is a bit odd given we are humans and such 'orrid things are part of our nature.
    Another example of this is Labour's aggressively misogynistic women's officer.

    Trampling over marginalised groups in a half arsed attempt to lift a marginalised group isn't liberation.

    It's more oppression.

    As you are are currently a Labour supporter iiuc it's forum etiquette for you to go first.
    Happy to reciprocate afterwards, even though I have already posted this info', as imo we should assist the lil' fish most in need of support.

    After a few jars, he and Jack will be tearfully hugging each other, saying "you're my best mate, ever".

    Interesting that you let this stay yet my comment that Farage should draw a line just under the jaw from one ear to the next was pulled by you with a snippy “violence will not be tolerated” comment and then you ban me from further comment on the thread.

    You do hypocrite much?

    Addiction is a disability. When did mocking a lil' fish for this become acceptable on pfm?

    As the tide goes out we see which members are swimming around in the nuddie.

    How could you tell? There was no smiley to indicate the use of humour.

    Or as we Scots call it - whitabootery - which I think has a nice ring to it :)

    A whole lot of nothing there, just a few sentences breaking up the usual dull sarcasm.

    I'm afraid the knee jerk reaction to the Chakrabarti report is akin to the assumption that all MSM is anti Labour & the whole 'establishment' is against them. The problem with a report saying that there is no AS within LP can be disproved at a later date.

    Watson does have a mandate just like Corbyn. You can't have it both ways, I think Corbyn is destroying the LP as an electoral force but nothing I can do about it.

    He's not mocking addiction. He is mocking the notion that after a few (metaphorical or otherwise) jars Jack and his fallen out mate will kiss and make up.

    Perhaps, but we are both entitled to our opinions.
    istm if Jack had a physical disability it wouldn't have been mentioned by Joe in a similar manner.

    You have no idea how to address Labour's anti-Semitism problems, or interest in potential solutions from others.
    Thanks for the clarification.

    I still don't understand why JC can't sort this. It's as easy as you like:
    1. "It is LP policy that any discrimination on the basis of race, sex, religion (etc) will not be tolerated."
    2. "Racism is defined as X, sexism as Y, antisemitism as Z, etc"
    3. Please note that criticising the behaviour of an indiividual who happens to be black, or gay, or Jewish, is not of itself racist, homophobic or antisemitic. The same goes for countries."
    4. "Anyone who breaks the rules from here on in will get done."
    Job done. How hard can it be?

    What was wrong with the Chakrabarti Report? It certainly didn't conclude that there was no antisemitism in the Labour Party. And what knee-jerk reaction?

    If it was that easy Steve, don’t you think he would have acted by now?

    Come on then, why is it more complicated? It's exactly what i would do in a workplace. The LP is a workplace like any other.

    Maybe that’s what happens when a natural rebel has to provide leadership?
