The UK Labour Party is in the news at the time of the local government elections, regional government elections and EU independence referendum. The Labour Party is under attack from hostile Capitalist elements within who are creating a fake anti-Semitism scare with the aim of crashing the Labour Party's share of the vote in polls in May. This they will use to give the impression that the public are against the current leadership of the party. The obvious intention is to point to manufactured popular opposition to the Labour Party as an excuse to remove the Socialist hierarchy and replace them with Capitalist ones.
Jeremy Corbyn may be a Revisionist and so operate from the position of a Trotskyite, but he is still at least nominally a Socialist. Corbyn has called for the UK to withdraw from the Capitalist armed forces of NATO and for the removal from the UK of the nuclear weaponry placed here by the Capitalist economic headquarters of the USA. Corbyn has called for the resocialisation of key parts of the economy. Corbyn was elected as leader of the Labour Party on the following manifesto:
- A new national investment bank to encourage growth and reduce the deficit
- Public ownership of the railway and energy sector
- Replace Trident with jobs that retain the skills of the workers
- Reduce the welfare bill through growth and investment
- Housebuilding programme and rent controls
- Integrate social care with the NHS
- A new national education service providing universal childcare, abolishing student fees, restoring grants and funding adult skills
- Scrap zero hours contracts and a national living wage for all, regardless of age
The Ruling Class are scared of the prospects of a Labour Party which will undo the tragic actions of the Thatcher-Blair-Cameron regimes. They are absolutely terrified that the people of the UK will be able to vote for a party which has at its head a man who is not controlled by the Globalist Bankers. The Ruling Class is using idiot political thugs like the Labour MP, John Mann, to attack people who do not support their control of the economy and subjugation of the People. The anti-Semitic slur has been on-going since at least December 2015 when the Capitalist rag, the Sun, stated that Corbyn would appoint a 'Shadow Minister for the Jews', which can now be seen as the opening salvo in the plan to paint Corbyn as a new Hitler!
As an aside, the Sun rag infamously celebrated the murder of young Argentinian sailors on the General Belgrano, sank by the Royal Navy under orders of the hated Thatcher as a means of rallying the people to jingoism so that they would support her regime's destruction of Working Class jobs. The Sun also supported the South Yorkshire Police atrocities against the Miners at Orgreave, mocked the Liverpool fans murdered by South Yorkshire Police at Hillsborough, excused the South Yorkshire Police cover-up of paedophile rapists destroying the lives of 1400 children. It is appropriate that the Sun started the attack on Corbyn and that the allegations of anti-Semitism are keeping the important news of the Hillsborough Enquiry this week releasing its findings of South Yorkshire Police murdering nearly 100 football fans, away from public attention.
Ken Livingstone is no nazi. He has been called an anti-Semite for pointing to the fact that Hitler and the Zionists had a shared ideology of belief in the separateness of the Jewish People from non-Jews. This has been jumped on as a way of creating the impression of division in the Labour Party at the time of the May local elections in England, the national elections in Alba and Cymru, the regional elections in Erin (north) and London, and the Police and Crime Commissioner and Mayoral elections. The most likely aim of the Blairite Capitalists is to discourage people from voting Labour, which will then be used as ammunition to remove the democratically elected Socialist leadership of Labour, Jeremy Corbyn. The government of Cameron will use the decline in Labour support as propaganda to support a 'remain' vote in the EU independence referendum in June, even though Corbyn has gone back on his decades long anti-EU and pro-freedom stance and joined the remain side himself. The attack on Livingston is a Trojan Horse attack on Corbyn. The Blairites are corporate shills who want to smash the Socialists in the Labour Party. They are enemies of the Working Class who are stoking the flames of anti-Semitism in service of their masters in the Banking and Finance sectors.
Opportunistic fascists are already pointing to the irony of Ken Livingston being attacked for stating that people who criticise Israel will be attacked. Leading Jewish figures are lining up to cry anti-Semitism. The list includes Baroness Julia Neuberger, Lord Sugar, Lord Levy and others rewarded by the Ruling Class for making the Labour Party a tool of commerce and an enemy of the Working Class it was set up to defend. The controlled media is working at an alarming rate to craft the imagery of Corbyn as a new Hitler, supported by Hamas and Hezbollah supporters who want to wipe Israel from the map (slandering Palestine Rights groups as genocidal maniacs). The BBC and Right-wingers who are also capitalising on the on-going events are deliberately blacking out any news of Jewish groups who are speaking out in defence of Livingstone and Corbyn, preferring to focus on George Galloway who they are equally slandering.
SWPE does not allow Capitalists to dictate how we are to think. We will not allow the hate-mongers to have the last word. The Labour Party is under attack and the vilest slurs are being used to bring down the leadership. We have considerable sympathy with Ken Livingstone and Jeremy Corbyn and hope that the radical direction the party has been taken in continues. We have criticisms too, or we would simply dissolve our organisation and advise our members and supporters to join Labour! We are Revolutionaries, not Reformers, not Reactionaries, and we are certainly not Trotskyites, so our support for Corbyn ends at sympathy.
We feel it appropriate to quote the 'Statement on "Labour's problems with antisemitism" as issued by the Jewish Socialist Group, a group with whom we have many differences, but which nevertheless is a Jewish organisation of the Left which is not playing the BBC game of 'all Jews hate Corbyn'::
In defence of his comment that Hitler and Zionism shared a common objective, Ken Livingstone has quoted the book 'Zionism in the Age of Dictators' by Jewish Marxist, Lenni Brenner. The hysteria around the orchestrated campaign of hate against the Socialists in the Labour Party has reached the point where Brenner himself is being labelled an anti-Semite! Read the book for yourself and share the information. The Capitalists are closing in on freedom. We can not let them succeed in slandering and libeling Socialists.
