A most disturbing political development of the last few years has been the convergence of elements of the Far Left and Far Right. From #GeorgeGalloway to #ChrisWilliamson to #NigelFarage to #SteveBannon this is something, as an antifascist, I NEVER thought I would see. A thread 1
2 #GeorgeGalloway is leading this so called conspiracy theory #RedBrown convergence, whether with his support for Far Right Nigel Farage, his links with virtual Nazi #SteveBannon, his writing for Alt Right Westmonster, and his interviews with various Alt Rightists in his RT show
3 Bannon is one of the most important fascist thinkers of our time and the reaction of any real socialist to being in close proximity to him should be naturally be closer to a Glasgow kiss than Galloway's warm handshakes! theguardian.com/commentisfree/…
4 Most people can see how bad Steve Bannon is, an open cheerleading racist, but not so many know Galloways other links and friendships e.g. with Patrick Henningsen 21stcenturywire.com/2019/05/01/imp…
5 "Patrick Henningsen started out ..[at] .. Infowars ...has [contributed] to Red Ice, a Swedish alt-right project with extremely antisemitic politics [has] interviewed Nick Kollerstrom, another Holocaust denier who used the interview to promote his book," libcom.org/blog/bonzo-goe…
6 another of Galloways mukkers [ and it appears #ChrisWilliamson too ] is Lee Stranahan an Alt Right Trump supporting ex Breitbart 'reporter' now at Putin propaganda station Sputnik. The link is of Stranahan, Henningsen, Galloway and Williamson at Belmarsh 21stcenturywire.com/2019/04/14/epi…
7 and again illustrated here. how it is acceptable for socialists and Far Rightists to be so close is beyond me wiseupaction.info/2019/04/25/at-…
And here is Galloway and Williamson with their arms around Alt Rightist Stranahan. Everyone on the #IStandWithChrisWilliamson hashtag needs to really ask themselves why Williamson seems to close to a Alt Rightist.
9 Or why Williamson praised another 'journalist' Vanessa Beeley with considerable links to the Far Right. While most ppl concentrate on her links to Putin and the murderous Syrian Assad regime, the Left should be aware of her antisemitic and fascist links newstatesman.com/world/middle-e…
10 While Williamson was full of praise for Beeley, Beeley reserves her praise for a variety of antisemites, Holocaust deniers and fascists like Alain Sorel, Dieudonne and Laurent Louis
11 Pro Palestinian socialist activist Mary Scully clearly labels Beeley as a fascist. "On social media [Vanessa Beeley] openly honor & associate with fascists, white supremacists, Islamophobes, & anti-Semites." So why is #ChrisWilliamson praising her? maryscullyreports.com/20780-2/
12 Similar to Beeley is Eva Bartlet, who Mary Scully is also referring to above as a 'fascist'. Here is George Galloway interviewing here. 21wire.tv/2018/02/10/geo…
13 But Bartlett is a contributor to conspiracy theory website Global Research, appears on the Ritchie Allen and Ryan Dawson. Again why would someone like Galloway, who many on the Left idolise be happy to interview someone clearly close to the Far Right? solprocess.noblogs.org/post/2016/12/2…
The recent coalescence of Right and Left first appears with the Occupy movement and it is no surprise that Kerry Anne Mendoza of the Canary plays a key link in supporting Galloway and Williamson and herself has appeared on the disgusting Ritchie Allen Show politicalresearch.org/2014/02/23/the…
15 For a thread on Kerry Anne Mendoza see this from @bobfrombrockley
16 If you want a very in depth research of the links between this tiny group on the Far Left and Far Right check this out. Much of it is historical but particularly note the section on Sputnik libcom.org/library/invest…
17 Or check out this thread here on Vanessa Beeley but which links to a lot more on this issue urban75.net/forums/threads…
This article by antifascist and socialist Alexander Reid Ross was withdrawn by the antiracist SPLC after legal threats but it correctly shows extensive links between small elements of the Far Right and Far Left. web.archive.org/web/2018030922…
19 and an interesting article as to why it was withdrawn newpol.org/inside-look-ho…
20 also check out this article on Chris Williamson again by @bobfrombrockley brockley.blogspot.com/2019/06/whats-…
Why does this all matter? Why does it matter than #ChrisWilliamson is pictured with his arm around Lee Stranahan? Or Galloway cosying up to Steve Bannon or Nigel Farage? Because when they do this they platform and legitimise fascism. This is unacceptable #NeverForget #NoPasaran
p.s. Those on the Far Right or who hang out with the Far Right who Chris Williamson has now praised, embraced or quoted; Lee Stranahan, Vanessa Beeley, Pedro Banos, Gilad Atzmon and Alfred de Zayes. All on the last year.
