The short road from anti-Westernism to anti-Semitism

Corbynmania has unleashed a great feeling of hope and change in the British public, especially among people hoping to wipe Israel off the face of the earth. Whether or not Jezza can be blamed for his links to activists with fascinating, esoteric views of the second world war, the accusations have focused attention on one particular aspect of 21st century politics: anti-Semitism on the left.

    For some reason I simply cannot recall when anti-Semitism was not an integral part of the Left. I know it existed among the “upper class” on the right but was not an integral part of the Right.

      I knew there had to be a reason that I was never infected with the anti-Semitism virus —I was never ‘Upper Class’.

      What is this victimolgy 101 ?

  • Shebel

    You are more than correct. I sure as hell cannot explain it.
    I Know what anti-Semitism is–
    I DON”T–know what anti -Western is— maybe just hating White people. in general.

    It really is a very Short Road.

    If they keep it up— It will be a Cul-de-sac.

      Anti-Western is hating people who get up in the morning to go to work.
