We need to talk about Rachael Swindon: a thread about one of the most influential social media accounts in Britain...>
Like Novara Media, Swindon is part of the group of Corbyn’s unofficial media spokespeople. They coordinate his public messaging...> thetimes.co.uk/article/corbyn…
Rachael Swindon is so important, that at Westminster she was applauded by leadership office staff and also treated like royalty at the ‘Labour Live’ event by Corbyn’s chief of staff...> google.co.uk/amp/s/www.buzz…
The unfairness in our society needs to be changed. But like many Corbyn cheerleaders, Swindon wraps her concerns up in antisemitism...>
When it comes to unfairness, Swindon focuses the blame on the Jewish name used by antisemitic conspiracists for hundreds of years. ‘Rothschild’...>
Here she posts an article by notorious antisemitic conspiracy theorist Craig Murray. Again, she focuses on the ‘Rothschild’ part of this David Icke style conspiracy...>
More on Craig Murray here...> hurryupharry.org/2018/03/15/cra…
Swindon also tweets out ‘casual’ antisemitism using racist stereotypes. So in reply to YouGov, a Jewish MP who complained about antisemitism is held responsible. She’s called an ‘agent’ - a fifth column, sabotaging on behalf of another power...>
Swindon mocks a Jewish person complaining about experiencing Labour antisemitism, labelling people who do so as ‘cretins’...>
She also uses the stereotype of Jews, money and influence. The truth is LFI didn’t have a stall due to the intimidation, thanks to Labour antisemitism - enabled by influencers like Rachael Swindon...>
Swindon’s fellow unofficial Labour spokespeople encourage her. They claim to fight antisemitism while happily turning a blind eye to her problematic comments...>
She is supported by another of Corbyn’s media mouthpieces, Skwawkbox. They’ve written 8 articles on her that I found. IPSO designated fake news merchants, Skwawkbox are also known for antisemitism...>
Like Skwawkbox, Swindon also pushes out fake news. Here she states the false and awful idea that Labour antisemitism was a good thing, because it motivated an influx of people to join Labour...>
For someone supposedly concerned with making society a kinder place, she’s all heart when it comes to Jewish people who feel Labour is too hostile to stay...>
Swindon also celebrated a mob rallying against an MP at his constituency surgery, intimidating vulnerable people seeking his help. It was an MP who also happens to be vocally against antisemitism...>
Rachael Swindon represents how Labour scapegoat the Jewish community to illustrate inequality. Far from creating a fairer society, Swindon actively sabotages the prospect of one. \end
*Footnote: There appears to be a pattern of Rachael Swindon retweeting nasty posts by some virulently antisemitic accounts...>
For example, notorious antisemite Scott Nelson, infamous for ranting about Tesco and M&S having ‘Jewish blood’. The post Swindon shared was about the daughter of a Jewish MP working for the BBC, and how she is part of a conspiracy (H/T @jamieexp_) ...>
Swindon also shared a post by a close associate of Sally Eason, who prolifically targets Jewish accounts. @jewishlabour took the unprecedented step of publicly chastising Bastani for retweeting Eason. This post is about the antisemitic ‘smear factory’...>
Swindon also retweets Dorset Eye, a community website used as cover to spread antisemitic hatred. They were featured by @antisemitism ...>
The ugly material coming from these notoriously unsavoury sources reveals something about Rachael Swindon. Conspiratorial antisemitism is consistent with her own way of thinking. \end

Thread on antizionism 👇

Post enlightenment, intellectuals used to debate the status of Jews. This was known as ‘the Jewish question’. For Jews, despite all their efforts, enlightenment ended in the gas chambers…
The new ‘Jewish question’ to fill the minds of intellectuals is called antizionism. It is a rallying call, and one of the most dominant ‘isms’ of our time…
Antisemitism is a fantasy version of Jews by racists. Likewise antizionism is a fantasy version of Jewish life, politics and history, using the same stereotypes and accusations

A quick look at the a Taliban’s network of friends:

Hamas and the Taliban are the same, hence the celebrations from Hamas. Neither are big on elections or freedom.

For Jews in Israel, “Antizionists” seek an even more hideous version of Afghanistan’s reality...
Of course the Taliban are cosy with Iran, the psychopaths behind most war in the region who publicly hang dissenters and hate women. Shared values...
And China won’t hang about. Not with all those natural resources they can take advantage of as well as increasing their influence...

Obama threw Syrians to the wolves, allowing gassings etc by Assad & his Iran Russia support

Trump threw Kurds to the wolves with Afrin, allowing Turkey and their ISIS soldiers in

Biden has thrown Afghanistanis to the wolves, allowing the Taliban warlords to take over

The West
This is an abdication of responsibility. Who will trust the West again? They will simply turn to places like China and Russia... wapo.st/37JlSZJ
Not just a moral failure, it’s a public admission of reduced influence and power. We are seeing the voluntary end of the West as the leading force.

You’ll never see this nursery rhyme the same again....

1/5 It’s about impoverished Jews collecting Oranges and Lemons shipped by Livorno Jews to St Clement’s (Eastcheap - by the Thames wharves)...
2/5 They were fronted the money near St Martins (Outwich) and if they couldn’t sell their produce (to pay back what they owed) they endedup in Newgate, where they would hear the chimes of St Sepulchre opposite the Old Bailey...
3/5 Jews lived in tenements in Shoreditch and Stepney - places like this were packed with thousands of Jewish immigrants , mainly Ashkenazi but also Sephardi...

“You lot” don’t get irony
I rarely mention Corbyn anymore, which apparently constitutes a “crippling obsession”.

Jews aren’t allowed to even mention the leader of an antisemitic party who made their lives hell without being policed by Alex Bragg.
Which swiftly led onto “why won’t you amplify the 3 token Jews who agree with racists?!”

🚨THREAD🚨Hamas attack Israel (backed by Iran)to take advantage of the elections Fatah cancelled.

People in the west have marched in support of these warring Islamic fascist factions...> Image
Turns out it’s a handy way to be racist about Jews in a socially acceptable way. This is a neo-Nazi called “Lady Renouf”...>
Lady Renouf was too extreme even for the BNP. Does a far right extremist care about Palestinian rights or just hate Jews? Answers on a postcard...> Image
