DELUDED fans of Jeremy Corbyn think sports fans chanting the White Stripes anthem is about him - but they couldn't be more wrong. In fact, the iconic Seven Nation Army melody has been around for years, way longer than the Labour boss has been leader for. But still fans were quick to take to social media to applaud their savour's name being sung along to the tune at football and boxing matches. One user who calls themselves Libertarian Socialist wrote: "Nothing better than hearing 'Oh Jeremy Corbyn' being chanted at the Joshua fight. And the MSM say he has no support among working class people?" Hundreds of people - including Labour MP and Corbyn ally Chris Williamson, have shared the message, even though the original poster has now admitted they were wrong. A sports journalist was quick to reply: "They were chanting Joshua's name, not Corbyn's." They were singing about Anthony Joshua actually. Still, keep putting the fake news out there for the sheep in the cult to lap up.— Loony … [Read more...] about Deluded Corbynistas think the Jeremy Corbyn chant is being sung at sports matches… but they couldn’t be more wrong
A GROUP that Jeremy Corbyn chose to meet last night have been exposed as holding extreme views on Israel and declaring anti-Semitism allegations to be a "smear". Last night the Labour boss sparked fury by marking the Jewish Passover festival with a radical group who had previously dismissed the anti-Semitism storm as "cynical manipulation". The Labour chief attended a meeting of radical organisation Jewdas, which has criticised mainstream Jewish organisations for their protests against the party's handling of the issue. And social media posts on Facebook and Twitter have exposed some extreme views. They described gay cops as "b**tards" and have made multiple references to "f**k the police". The @Jewdas account said Israel was a "steaming pile of sewage which needs to be properly disposed of". And they also accused anti-Semitism allegations of being "malicious accusations" that were whipped up by Tory supporters. In a statement last week, the Jewdas group accused the Jewish … [Read more...] about Israel is ‘a steaming pile of sewage’, anti-Semitism is a ‘smear’ against Jeremy Corbyn and gay cops are ‘bastards’ – the vile views of far-left Jewish group the Labour leader met last night exposed
JEREMY Corbyn has sparked fury after defending an artist who painted an anti-Semitic mural. As he reignited the party's longstanding battle with anti-Semitism allegations, the Labour leader finally admitted last night it was right the painting was removed. The graphic, called Freedom for Humanity, was painted on a property near Brick Lane in East London by international graffiti artist Kalen Ockerman, known as Mear One. It showed a number of bankers around a monopoly board, betting with money, and a sign on the edge of the frame reads: "The new world order is the enemy of humanity." The artist on Facebook: "Tomorrow they want to buff my mural. Freedom of Expression. London Calling. Public Art." Corbyn replied: "Why? You are in good company. Rockerfeller destroyed Diego Viera's mural because it includes a picture of Lenin." The Labour leader last night admitted in a grovelling statement the painting was anti-Semitic after he was confronted by Jewish Labour MP Luciana Berger. … [Read more...] about Fury after it’s revealed Jeremy Corbyn defended ‘anti-Semitic’ public art showing men playing Monopoly
