UK left activists attended events with far right antisemites

Former Labour party members have regularly met elements of the far right to discuss and propagate antisemitic conspiracy theories, an undercover investigation has found.

Infiltration of the conspiracy theorist group Keep Talking found that Jeremy Corbyn supporters and confidantes of former Labour MPs have attended meetings addressed by Holocaust deniers.

During one gathering in London last year, suspended Labour supporters heard James Thring, an infamous antisemite linked to the former Ku Klux Klan grand wizard David Duke, speak openly and unchallenged about Holocaust denial.

A covert recording of Thring at the meeting captured him claiming that no deaths were recorded at the Auschwitz Nazi death camp, where 1.1 million people, mostly Jews, were systematically murdered.

3. That's NEVER gonna happen.

The very idea that anti-Semitism happens on the left is just a "lie" spread by "Zionists". ***wink, wink***

It always, and I mean always, surprises me how many self-labeled liberals and progressives will call out racism, sexism, Islamophobia, homophobia (on occasion), and transphobia from among our ranks, but anti-Semitism, well, no, that just does NOT exist on our side of the fence. All other forms of bigotry hound us and should be rooted out, but anti-Semitism, somehow, that magically only exists on the right.

5. If people aren't seeing it, perhaps they need to see more evidence like this.

We are seeing all these things because of posting/reading in this group. Id like to see more of these in GD, it might build our alliances despite the inevitable slurs.
