Corbyn Doesn't Think Labour Has Anti-Semitism Problem, James Solves Why

Jeremy Corbyn insists the Labour party doesn’t have an anti-semitism problem, but James says that’s because he’s looking at it the wrong way.

“The Labour party's problem with anti-Semitism today is that it honestly believes that the reason why newspapers and television stations aren't more sympathetic to Jeremy Corbyn… is built upon his historical opposition to the state of Israel.

“And you extrapolate from that the fact that the media hates him so much because of what he says about Israel, they've ordered all of their journalists and outlets and organs to be anti-Corbyn because all of the bosses are Jews.

“You look me in the eye and tell me that's not anti-Semitism.”

James believes that Jeremy Corbyn and others in Labour who do not recognise that the party has a problem with anti-Semitism is because they don’t understand what they’re looking at and only recognise the right-wing version of anti-Semitism.

“So on the one side of this anti-Semitism coin you have the traditional racist bile. It could be Jews today, it'll be Muslims tomorrow, Pakistanis, whatever it might be, just "otherness". Traditional right-wing racism.

“On the other side of this coin, I don't know if we can call it left-wing, you've got this business where anybody who is critical of Corbyn must be doing that because he's critical of Israel and they must be doing that because they're Jews and they want to control the news.

“And if that's not anti-Semitic, well, I'm a banana.”
