JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: BRITAIN’S WITCH-HUNT CONTINUES – VETERAN LABOUR PARTY MEMBER SHOWILY RESIGNS – RESPECT FOR DEMOCRATIC PROCESS IGNORED AS A SMALL MINORITY DRIVES TO IMPOSE ITS WILL – REPLICATING THE REPULSIVE BEHAVIOR OF DONALD TRUMP   Leave a comment

COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN THE INDEPENDENT

 

“Frank Field resigns Labour whip, saying Jeremy Corbyn has become ‘force for antisemitism in British politics’

“Veteran MP says Britain fought Second World War to ‘banish’ type of views voiced by Labour leadership”

 

Well, the anti-Semitism witch-hunt just keeps getting more and more intense and threatening.

Does anyone ever ask where all this “anti-Semitism” was during Tony Blair’s decade of rule?

Or indeed during the period of his successor?

And Jeremy Corbyn has been around a long time in politics, yet somehow these mysterious tendencies of his have only gained attention now.

Now that he is leader, that is, twice democratically elected.

But we can’t let mere democratic process stand in the way of a minority’s bias against someone, can we?

This approach to government and political parties is highly destructive, truly offering something of a declaration of war by a small minority against democratic process.

Response to a comment saying “people’s dismissing problems of prejudice in Labour is like listening to Trump supporters who think that objections to pussy-grabbing are part of a liberal conspiracy:”

No, more than anything else, these accusations resemble Trump’s way of behaving.

Be noisy.

Be demanding, even against a fair majority.

Make all kinds of reckless claims.

Provide no proof of anything that would convince open-minded observers.

Refuse to cooperate if you don’t get your way.

Sure sounds like Trump’s behavior to me.
