Jeremy Corbyn's Anti-Semitism Should Be More Shocking Than It Is
My book "Bieganski: The Brute Polak Stereotype" talks a lot about the Escherian maze that is Political Correctness.
Hate is not hate. Hate is hate only if powers-that-by define it so.
Case in point. The above photo is of powerful British politician Jeremy Corbyn laying a wreath to commemorate the terrorists who murdered Israeli athletes at the 1972 Munich Olympics.
Confronted with this photo, Corbyn engaged in some mealy mouthed nonsense about how killing has to stop.
A Guardian article addressing antisemitism among British Labour Party politicians offers some hint of how widespread and socially acceptable hatred of Jews is in the UK. You can read that article here
British antisemitism is scary and disgusting. British literature produced stock antisemitic images. Blood libel from Chaucer. Shylock from Shakespeare. Fagin from Dickens.
And at the same time, the UK arrested and tortured Tommy Robinson, who says things that the powers that be don't like about a religion that the powers that be do like.
If only the Brits had a mirror. They really need to take a good long look at themselves.
And what has any of this to do with Poles? You tell me how the world would react if a Polish politician showed up at a wreath laying ceremony for terrorist murderers.
