'Baddiel, tellingly, has nothing to say about any of the discrimation that benefits Israel.' |
Indeed, as he tweeted in 2020, and apparently on enough other occasions for 'regulars' to recognise the opinion:
Jews trending, I see. Always depressing, as it's never "Because we just *love* them!"
As regulars know I don't care about stupid ####ing Israel. I do care about anti-Semitism, and so have to sometimes get involved in the SFI debate as the word Zionist/Zionism *is* *sometimes* racistly interchanged with the word Jew. Here's some data from neo-Nazi site Stormfront.

So when progressives want to use the Z-word as a marker of pure evil, fine, fill your boots: just be aware that once you add to that, baseless conspiracy theories and the suggestion that a sinister lobby controls the political discourse, you are very much in Dna88's world. - https://twitter.com/Baddiel/status/1277270366201753600
Not sure what the context was back then but it's still a remarkable thing to feel comfortable saying, and a completely disingenuous argument to boot. The smug self-centered core of IDPol liberalism. What a scumbag, him and Starmer are welcome to one another...
