CAA Chief Stephen Pollard Defends Tory Thug, Who Punched Girl Anti-Fascist Protestor at UWE

February 21, 2018

I’ve been watching Dick Coughlan’s video on YouTube, ‘Daily Mail Readers = Bonkers Mental Nazi Rapists’, in which Coughlan goes through the comments section on the on-line version of the Daily Heil, and shows you precisely why it’s got that nickname. Coughlan himself is very anti-racist and anti-Nazi, as well as pro-feminist and supports LGBT and trans rights. He’s put up a number of videos about the historical reality of the Holocaust, refuting the assertions of the various Nazis out there that it never happened. I’ve reblogged some of these here. And so it’s no surprise that the comments he reads out here are from Mail readers with extreme right-wing views ranting on about immigrants.

And one of them is Stephen Pollard, the head of the Campaign Against Anti-Semitism, the foul group of liars that have libelled Mike as an anti-Semite and Holocaust denier.

Remember the fracas that occurred a few weeks ago when the Young Master, Jacob Rees-Moog – whom Coughlan says looks like Lord Snooty from the Beano – turned up to give a talk at the University of the West of England here in Bristol? A group of antifa were present to protest. Snooty, sorry, Mogg in 2014 attended a dinner of the far right Traditional Britain Group, which is very anti-immigrant, viciously anti-Muslim, and at least one of its members does have a fascination with the Nazis. They also want to sell off the NHS. When news of this was published in the Independent, Mogg issued a statement that he went ’cause he didn’t really know who were they were. They just issued him an invite, and so he went along. Well, that’s his excuse. I find it unconvincing. As other people have pointed out, you hardly go to a formal dinner of an organisation without knowing at least something about them. But the incident explains why the antifa were protesting him.

One of them, a young woman, shouted ‘Racist! Nazi!’ at Mogg as he walked past. One of Mogg’s Tory fanboys then stood in front of her and punched her in the mouth. He also tried to hit her again. Coughlan also makes the point that this character was also photographed wearing a Nazi uniform. This was at a fancy dress party, admittedly. However, you can’t hire Nazi uniforms from costume shops. You have to buy them online. This is another point Coughlan makes, which leaves it a good question about how much sympathy this thug really does have with the Nazis.

Amidst all the controversy, Pollard had a piece commenting on it published in the Heil. And guess what? He declared that the real Nazis were the left-wingers making accusations of racism.

This tells you all you need to know about Pollard and his grubby crew in the Campaign Against Anti-Semitism. Pollard and his comrades have zero interest in tackling real anti-Semitism. As has been pointed out by Tony Greenstein, he’s true-blue Tory Jewish establishment. The CAA’s website has little to say about real Nazis and anti-Semites, like the BNP and National Action. Nor is there much criticism of the Tories. There is far more criticism of the Labour party for alleged anti-Semitism. And it’s the CAA and its counterpart in the Labour party, the Jewish Labour Movement, who are responsible for pushing the anti-Semitism smears and libels.

And their metric for deciding who is an anti-Semite is risibly simple: it’s support for Israel. It doesn’t matter how right-wing someone is, if they support Israel, Pollard will appear and defend them as not anti-Semitic at all. Like he did the Polish government, despite the anti-Semitic character of several pieces of legislation criminalising blaming Poles for the crimes of the Nazis. Among those the Israel lobby has smeared as anti-Semites are self-respecting Jewish people, who have, or whose families have, suffered real anti-Semitic abuse and racially motivated assault. But because they have been critical of Israel and its seven decades long campaign of persecution of the indigenous Palestinians, Pollard and his cronies have libelled them as anti-Semitic.

And so this squalid, amoral liar defends the Tory thug, who punched an anti-racist protester, and smears her, and people like her, as Nazis. Because she and they are left-wing, and so a threat to the Tories and his own organisation. The CAA desperately needs to position itself as the leading organisation tackling anti-Semitism. They aren’t, not by a very long chalk. They’re only interested in anti-Semitism in so far as accusations of it can be weaponised against Jeremy Corbyn, Momentum and the true Labour moderates, to defend Thatcherism domestically and Israel abroad. And they are afraid of Antifa as these people challenge their appropriation of anti-racism and anti-Fascism.

As for Antifa themselves, the Christian minister, Harvard lecturer and left-wing activist Cornell West stated that it was them who saved him and the other people from across the faith and ethnic spectrum, including Jews, from being killed by the Alt-Right and Nazi stormtroopers in Charlotteville as they attended an interfaith service.

Pollard and the Jewish Labour Movement couldn’t care less for real victims of anti-Semitism. They just wish to stamp out criticism of Israel, and so will smear decent non- and anti-racists, including Jewish victims of racist assault, and defend right-wing thugs, in order to do so.

But perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised at Pollard defending a right-wing thug and attacking left-wing anti-racist activists. Jonathan Hoffman, a former president of the Zionist Federation of Great Britain, was photographed in the company of Paul Besser, Britain First’s intelligence office, when they were both out protesting against a Palestinian convention and expo in London.

Editor of Nazi Site Daily Stormer Appears on Israeli Television, Defends Netanyahu’s Son

September 17, 2017

This is absolutely unbelievable. And to people, who have suffered genuine anti-Semitism, or who have stood up for those, who have, this must come as a very sick joke. Tony Greenstein, a Socialist, anti-Zionist and anti-racist blogger, who is himself Jewish, has run a series of articles pointing out that the Zionists have very frequently collaborated with Nazis and real anti-Semites. Both have had the same goals. The Nazis wanted to clear the Jews out of their countries, while the Zionists have as one of their core beliefs the conviction that anti-Semitism cannot be fought, and so the Jews must have a country of their own. And so you had the Ha’avara agreement between the Nazis and the Zionists, in which the Nazis smuggled some Jews out to what would become Israel. This was before the Nazis revoked the agreement and decided on their policy of mass extermination. Even after the Nazis were murdering the Jewish people in the death camps, some Zionists still held out the hope that some Nazis could be persuaded to spare some and send them to Israel. It’s why George Soros despises the Zionists. Soros is of Hungarian Jewish heritage, and the leader of the Zionists in Fascist Hungary, Kasztner, collaborated with the Nazi deportations from this disgusting view.

And the hatred is reciprocated. Soros won’t give any of his billions to Israel, and so the Israelis hate him in turn. Last week, Yair Netanyahu, the son of Benjamin Netanyahu, posted a cartoon about George Soros lifted from the Nazi website, the Daily Stormer. This shows Soros alongside one of David Icke’s reptoids and an anti-Semitic caricature of a Jew. Netanyahu junior took the offending cartoon down, but not before it had been praised by David Duke, the former Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, and one of the most anti-Semitic figures in American politics, as well as the Daily Stormer itself. The Stormer takes its name from the Nazi propaganda rag, Der Sturmer, edited by Julius Streicher, that vilified and smeared the Jews during the Third Reich.

Now the editor of the website, Andrew Anglin, has appeared on Israeli TV, saying that he defends Yair Netanyahu because he’s against liberal Jews, making a clear distinction between Israelis and diaspora Jews. Greenstein comments that the two presenters, including a woman, Michelle Ghora, who’s supposed to be investigating him, appear sympathetic. Ghora even makes a comment about how you can’t really blame people for resenting their – in other words, Jewish – interference in their politics.

Anglin goes further, and says ‘I’ve just become informed that there is a Jewish-Israel alt-Right. I’m happy about this…. They are using some of our memes, it is based upon our movement, they are bothered, sick of the same people in the same way.’

Greenstein notes that

Anglin is making a clear distinction between Israeli Jews and Zionists, who are racially aware and Diaspora Jews who are up to their old tricks, controlling other nations. In this you see the coming together of Zionist ideology, which was always hostile to the diaspora and neo-Nazi anti-semitism.

Earlier in his piece he also comments on the sheer hypocrisy of the Zionist lobby in this country, like the Jewish Labour Movement, when anti-Zionists call Israel what it is – a racist state.

Anglin’s not the only American Fascist to appear on Israel TV arguing that American Fascism and the Israelis have something in common. So did Richard Spencer, the head of the Alt-Right, who told his interviewers that he admired the Israelis for creating their own ethnic state, and he wants to do the same for White America.

Not that Britain’s Zionists are necessarily any better. Tony Greenstein also put up a piece a week or so ago commenting on how Jonathan Hoffman, the leader of the Zionist Federation of England and Wales, organized a protest outside a pro-Palestinian conference. One of those who joined his picket was Paul Besser, who was the intelligence officer of Britain First, the banned Fascist outfit that Thomas McNair, the assassin of Jo Cox, belonged to.

Way back in the 1990s, the Raelians, a UFO new religious movement run by Claude Vorilhon, now called Rael, wanted to open an embassy in Jerusalem, ready for when the aliens – the Elohim, according to them, return. This got into controversy because of the symbol chosen by the Raelians: a Star of David containing a swastika. Naturally, this wasn’t going to go down very well in the Jewish state, many of whose citizens either were, or were descended from, the victims of the Nazis. But having seen how Yair Netanyahu and his supporters are embracing real Nazis and Fascists, even to the point where one of their leaders claims that there is an Israeli Alt-Right, that symbol seems horribly appropriate.

And it also means that the Zionist lobby in the UK – the misnamed Campaign Against Anti-Semitism and the Jewish Labour Movement – have no business whatsoever smearing genuine anti-racists and opponents of anti-Semitism, like Ken Livingstone, Jackie Walker and Mr. Greenstein himself as anti-Semites.

Vox Political on the Real Reason Behind Latest Smear on Jackie Walker

October 2, 2016

I think Mike’s nailed it. He’s posted up a piece revealing the Jewish Labour Movement’s basis in Zionism, and suggests that this is the real reason for the latest anti-Semitism slurs against Jackie Walker. Mrs Walker attended a training day on Holocaust Memorial Day, during which she committed the terrible crime of objecting to the definition of anti-Semitism that the event’s organisers, the Jewish Labour Movement, declared they were working with. This was that proposed by the European Monitoring Centre on Racism and Xenophobia, which equates anti-Semitism with opposition to Zionism and the state of Israel. The definition was scrapped by the European Monitoring Centre’s successor organisation, the Fundamental Rights Agency.

And on their website the Jewish Labour Movement declares that

“The Jewish Labour Movement is also affiliated to the Board of Deputies of British Jews, the Zionist Federation of the UK, and organise within the World Zionist Organisation… Our objects: To maintain and promote Labour or Socialist Zionism as the movement for self-determination of the Jewish people within the state of Israel.”

Mike makes the point that the Movement does not represent all Jews. It only represents Jewish Zionists, and persecutes Jews, who are not.

Jackie Walker’s father was a Russian Jew, and her partner is Jewish. But she’s not a Zionist, and so has been targeted for persecution.

Mike concludes

This is not about anti-Semitism; it is about removing a person who does not support Zionism from a position of influence.

Am I right?

Is this the real reason Jackie Walker was targeted by the Jewish Labour Movement?

I think Mike’s absolutely correct, and so do many others. Many of Mike’s readers are Jews, or of Jewish heritage, and he has received many comments from them agreeing with him. Please go to his site, and read the messages left by Tony Greenstein, Fathomie – who isn’t Jewish, but has Jewish friends, and David Douglas-Wilson. Mr Wilson is the author of a book on Sir Moses Montefiore. He has completed an MA in Holocaust Studies, a subject that has personally affected him. He states that he lost 14 members of his family in the Shoah. He also wishes that people wouldn’t equate the Jewish people with Zionism, and describes the confusion of the two as ‘crude history, vulgar politics, and pure opportunism.’

Mike has also received comments supporting this article from non-Jewish readers as well, who are also very definitely not anti-Semitic but sceptical of Israel and its policies towards the Palestinians.

As Mike and his readers make very clear, this isn’t about anti-Semitism. This is about the Israel lobby, or at least that section of if which supports Likud and its racist terrorism absolutely, trying to silence Israel’s critics. They are trying to silence decent women and men by calling them anti-Semites. If Jewish, they are reviled as ‘self-hating’ and declared to be ‘not real Jews’. It’s disgusting, and bears out Prof Norman Finkelstein’s statement that the Zionist lobby is all about manufacturing anti-Semites. And not only are decent people slandered, the term itself is devalued, while real, anti-Semitic Nazis like National Action and the National Socialist Movement in Britain are stomping about in jackboots again.
