Every single pro-Corbyn media outlet that I've come across supports Chris Williamson MP despite the protestations of virtually the entire British Jewish community.

Novara, The Canary, Skwawkbox, Evolve, all of them.

Think about the message that sends out to Jewish people. 1/
Think about how over the past 18 months Jewish people have been screaming about Williamson's ritual goading of British Jews on the issue of antisemitism, in a manner in which no MP, of any party in my living memory, has ever gone to so much effort to do.
Then think about how Jews have been ignored and sometimes derided on this by virtually the entire pro-Corbyn commentariat and then think about how none of them will today acknowledge it.

Jeremy Corbyn's Labour Party, as it's known, wouldn't be able to take the piss out of British Jews like this without the tacit support of those who bat for it in the media; despite whatever vague platitudes may pass for opposition to antisemitism on the British Left in 2018.
They read the tweets. They know exactly what Williamson is doing. Don't tweet about how Atzmon is a vile antisemite. Tweet about how you've ignored Jewish people's legitimate concerns about a Labour MP consistently seeking to stoke up hatred and division against my community.
Take this: a statement from BoD condemning Tory MEP's support of Orban and juxtaposing it with the Muslim Council of Britain's statement.

A white British MP scoring points against the Jews by using another minority community as leverage.

This stuff has consequences.
And people just look on. Look at his degenerate trolling of Jewish communal orgs on the issue of their own prejudice - that cuts to the core of their identity - which no one cared about until 11 Jews were gunned down and then it suddenly looked a bit off. But not to Jews...
We already know it's dodgy. It's an attack on our identity. It's an attack on us as a people. It always is.

And STILL the pro-Corbyn media outlets and the high-profile commentators stayed silent or as Skwawkbox did (briefed by senior Labour sources) just span it for Williamson.
Williamson has been out on point appeasing the cranks, the conspiracists, the antisemites in and around the Labour Party, doing the dirty work that no one else wants to do because without those people who voted for Pete Willsman AFTER his rant you'd lose control of the party.
And everyone, unless they're really thick, knows this.

Stop taking the piss out of Jews.
There are some Jeremy Corbyn supporters that I've met recently who are really starting to understand the problem who didn't before. They are making an effort to engage and understand. It's great. But who have they got to look up to on their own side on this issue?
Who is really going to say "enough is enough" rather than just "enough is enough of the stuff I can get away with opposing without doing too much damage to my own side?"

It's just not good enough.
Stop taking the piss out of Jews.

We're not fucking stupid.
