Labour Mayoral Candidate Said Zionism is as “Foul” as Nazism

Mansfield Labour are having a hard time with their local Mayoral campaign for the May elections. Their initial candidate, Paul Bradshaw, quit in January, having been forced out by the hard left of the party. A new significantly less moderate candidate, Sean McCallum, was selected on Wednesday evening…

Guido can reveal that McCallum is the author of deeply anti-Semitic posts on his personal Facebook account. In a bizarre rant defending the comments that got Ken Livingstone suspended from the Labour Party, he equated the genocidal evil of the Nazi regime with the existence of Israel as a country “nazism & zionism are equally foul.” This is going even further than Ken Livingstone did…

He also declared that he “can’t see anything even vaguely anti-Semitic” about Naz Shah’s infamous Facebook post that got her suspended from the Labour Party. Shah herself later acknowledged that “the language I used was anti-Semitic, it was offensive… What I did was I hurt people and the language that was the clear anti-Semitic language.”

At the time Jeremy Corbyn said “What Naz Shah did was offensive and unacceptable. I have spoken to her and made this clear.” When even Jeremy Corbyn describes what you’re sharing as offensive you know you’re in trouble…

UPDATE: Guido understands that the Labour Party has suspended Sean McCallum pending investigation. A party spokesperson said:

“The Labour Party takes all complaints of antisemitism extremely seriously and we are committed to challenging and campaigning against it in all its forms. All complaints about antisemitism are fully investigated in line with our rules and procedures and any appropriate disciplinary action is taken.”

Tories Make Sick Labour MP Vote in Wheelchair

Sick Labour MP Naz Shah is forced to vote in a wheelchair and clutching a sick bucket after the Tories refused to keep to the convention of “nodding through” ill MPs. Well done, great look.

Naz Shah Now Against Promoting Extremist Content on Twitter

Naz Shah is getting very angry in the Commons about Trump promoting “extremist content” on Twitter. That’s the same Naz Shah who posted that Jews should be kicked out of the Middle East, warned “the Jews are rallying” and shared pro-Hamas tweets. Stunning lack of self-awareness.

UPDATE: Tory MP Andrew Percy comments:

“Everyone agrees Britain First are a disgusting set of hate peddlers, though the Labour Party are in no position to lecture on this matter. Not only have scores of their members shared extremist content or peddled racist conspiracy theories, they are led by a man who openly describes a terrorist organisations that wish to wipe out an entire race of people as his ‘friends’. Of course President Trump should be called out on his tweets, though Labour might do well to spend as much time on their own problem with extremism.”

Corbyn and Labour MPs Host MEND in Parliament

In all the Fallon excitement, Corbyn should not be allowed to get away with his attendance at the MEND event in parliament last night. There’s no two ways about it, MEND is an extremist-linked group whose senior figures have praised Al-Qaeda, attended speeches by al-Qaeda hate preachers, and justified the murder of British troops. Last week the respected Henry Jackson Society think tank dubbed MEND “Islamists posing as civil libertarians”. Tory MPs pulled out of last night’s event when details of MEND’s extremist links were published in the media over the weekend. Yet still Corbyn agreed to be the keynote speaker. Labour MPs Wes Streeting, Stephen Kinnock, Naz Shah, Kate Green and Afzal Khan all attended. Corbyn’s face is now proudly splashed across MEND’s Twitter page.

MEND is a seriously nasty group. Jez and the Labour MPs who attended will have seen the reports about them over the weekend. And they still turned up. It’ll be missed as sleaze takes centre stage, but this is grim stuff from Labour…

MP Heckled “Jew, Jew, Jew” For Saying Israel Has Right to Exist

Sources on the ground in troubled Bradford West think the Corbyn surge could help save Labour’s Naz Shah, who is facing an increasing threat from independent Salma Yaqoob. Yaqoob – of Respect and Stop the War fame – is running a professional campaign and so far two other independents have stood down to back her. At a tumultuous hustings on Wednesday Shah was shouted down for expressing support for Israel’s right to exist. After Shah says “I continue to stand by my statement that I believe in Israel’s right to exist” an audience member can clearly be heard shouting “Jew, Jew, Jew“. Aisha Ali-Khan, who was at the hustings, told Guido: “I was horrified at the conduct some of those in the room.Yet more disturbing stuff in Bradford…
