The left is rapidly losing its moral authority on racism

On Monday, Jeremy Corbyn was questioned by Channel 4 News about yet another Holocaust denier and anti-Semite of his acquaintance. And now the BBC’s World at One has asked Corbyn about another.

There are plenty more, and this will be able to go on for quite some time. But Corbyn’s defence was interesting in that it went to the heart of the political inequality of our time: that is the assumption that the motivations of the left are good even when they do bad things, while the motivations of their opponents on the right are solely bad even when they do good things.

    The fact that NOW and GLAAD are obsessed with Pizza after a gay wedding or Romney’s file of Resume` paper to actually hire women and pay more than the White House does for equal work compared to males…..pretty well speaks tomes about the deafening silence over ISIS that rapes women and little girls while gays are tossed from from tops.

    One person on the Left tried to make an excuse for why they are silent , they told me that gays are still oppressed in the USA .

    Wow, but now the leftists can’t stay silent on Planned Parenthood because
    if they do , the next step may be that Blacks babies or gays are being killed for body parts……….it will be pretty rich for Pro-Choice people to suddenly have morals and condemn Homo-cide abortions while they have been silent right now on Gender-cide abortions to female babies .
    When the gender-cide baby is a lesbian , why would it be worth more and NOT a lump of flesh and feminists and gays claims during pro-choice marches .

    Good posted essay in the Spectator. The situation in Britain is analogous to how Obama got caught listening to Rev.Jeffrey Wright spew anti-Jewish hate. Then, in 2008, Obama profusely denied his Jew-hatred, and paid off his media sycophants to bury the story. The same thing will happen with Corbyn. Then if he beomes the British prime miniter, like Obama he will declare war on Israel and the Jews.
