Going on a david icke platform at all is fucking weird imo
Ah. So you mean the ‘graves being vandalised LOLS’ screenshot?
Yes, sorry, I see it was ambiguous.
I’ll edit out your name. I currently trying to find my local hospital after my CPN refused to support me to be admitted voluntarily. I’ll be sectioned soon. Great.
My name's not on there so not required. I'm just suggesting that it's an approach that's not going to go down very well. There is reason to it: we have had posters that have shared this kind of stuff on Twitter etc attempting to make U75 and its posters look bad.
I have no intention of sharing to twitter, but I couldn’t give a damn about people who laugh at the stuff I screenshotted ‘looking bad’.
But yes, it doesnt look good
I hope you get the help you feel you need, but I don't think it's a great idea to bring your current mental health issues into this thread in the way you're doing.
It also appears to me as an outsider that your intense focus on the issue of antisemitism within the LP and the wider left might well be contributing to your current state and you might be better off easing off on it, even if only temporarily.
Labour has looked into 673 cases of alleged antisemitism, figures show
I ‘brought it in’ to explain why I might not be able to edit the post immediately.
My focus on the issue is due to AS (as well as loads of other shite - including Ickean poison) has a lot of currency within MH activism
There isn’t really a way of avoiding all manner of hatred and conspiracism if you are politically active and have MH problems.
Clearly, absolutely nothing is being done.
Look after yourself MadeInBedlam Hope things work out, and you get the support you need.
And to be clear - it’s not just antisemtism: antivaxxers, Yaxley-Lennon supporters, Scientologists, ‘transgender conspiracy’ types. All manner of scum.
None of this scumbags should be afforded any tolerance. And now it comes to light that a memenbr of the ‘socialist HEALTH association’ is appearing on a David Icke platform.
From above: "The data also indicates a large number of complaints – more than 400 in total – about non-Labour members."
Interesting that they'd been reported to Labour as (presumably) supposed Labour members?
They got rid of gerry downing, which can't be bad
Do you think many outside of Labour Left/pro labour left have the same take as you?
Not if they read the mail
Or pretty much any other newspaper
Yes, that indicates quite clearly that this is just a trawl of groups that say they're Corbyn supporters, a fishing exercise going back years. Most of those that have gone forward seem to be either one or two dodgy (conspiraloon linking) posts, or just being an excessively argumentative twat (ie, the reason I stay off twitter). 300 people, under 30%, suspended or investigated for going further than that. That's less than 1/2 a member per constituency. Were they an organised grouping, 300 would be fair number, but they're disparate individuals. Good riddance to them, but I don't see that as Labour being riddled with anti-semitism. Certainly not as compared to any other organisation of similar size.
From about 18 mins in:
Corbyn is the reason they're in Labour and they will be around until he's gone.
Looks like Corbyn has pissed of Starmer by "forgetting" to include a paragraph about supporting a second ref in his letter to May
Corbyn’s team say he FORGOT to threaten a People’s Vote in letter to May
Quite. And those who make noise about antisemites ‘only’ being corbyn suporters not (apparently) LP members kind of misses the point.
Racists are atttacted to the corbyn project.
Why specifically corbyn? You're right that some racists are attracted to him. And he's come out in support of the Palestinians and there's a danger of anti-Israeli government invective spilling over into antisemitic abuse. But why not the tories, too? There are anti-semites there - not just corbyn.
Is this true? I know (of) a few people who are under investigation and they've been members for decades.
Because he's the leader of the party and has mixed with this kind of people for a long time and they have followed him into Labour.
What’s the title of this thread again?
I can't argue on specific people, but I do think he has attracted them in.
Your post was about Dr Alex Scott-Samuel - he's been a member for 40 years.
This isn't a Corbyn thing, it's been there all along.
Has David duke? Or the (apparently) non-members on the batshit ‘corbyn is our saviour’ FB groups?
I don't believe David Duke is eligible for membership.
