#LabourAntisemitism: Gaslighting.

Apply the same rules to a Tory MP as you do to Jeremy Corbyn:

1. If a Tory MP ‘liked’ and defended a islamophobic mural you would label him/her a racist. And you would be right to do so. #Thread 1/9
2. If a Tory MP laid a wreath at the shrine to far right terrorists who had murdered Muslims you would label him/her a racist. And you would be right to do so. 2/9
3. If a Tory MP continuously engaged in anti-Islam conspiracy theories you would label him/her a racist. And you would be right to do so. 3/9
4. If a Tory MP stood on countless platforms with anti Islam far-right racists, and preachers of hate, you would label him/her a racist. And you would be right to do so. 4/9
5. If a Tory MP was continuously pictured with far right terrorists you would label him/her a racist. And you would be right to do so. 5/9
6. If a Tory MP accused Muslims of not understanding English irony, of not understanding English history, you would label him/her a racist. And you would be right to do so. 6/9
7. If the Tories and their leader were placed 4th on a list of global anti Islam hatred, you would label them & him/her racists. And you would be right to do so. 7/9
8. For points 1-7 replace the words ‘Tory MP’ with #JeremyCorbyn. And replace Islam & Muslim with Jews or Jewish. you would label him/her a racist. And you would be right to do so. 8/9
So why I ask are these principles & judgements not applied to #Corbyn? Why must the UK Jewish community accept different standards?

All forms of racism are abhorrent, but you cannot be anti-racist if you excuse antisemitism. 9/9 #EndThread.
