Roger Waters, Mark Ruffalo, and Brian Eno Among Haters Declaring Support for Antisemite Jeremy Corbyn

2321

A few days ago, I posted about a letter from a number of celebrities declaring they could not vote for Labour due to its antisemitism problem.

A number of other celebrities have now come out with their own letter – declaring support for antisemite Jeremy Corbyn. And they are a who’s-who of anti-Israel (and in some case antisemitic) scum and villainy, including Roger Waters, Mark Ruffalo, Brian Eno, Miriam Margolyes, and Noam Chomsky.

“To the Editor:

“The coming UK election is indeed a landmark and monumental one as signatories to a recent letter attest. However, we are outraged that Jeremy Corbyn, a life-long committed anti-racist, is being smeared as an anti-semite by people who should know better. Antisemitism is a problem within society and is present within all political parties and movements, including Labour. It must be confronted and rooted out at every turn. No political party or political leader has done more to address this problem than Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party. In the last two years, the speed of investigations has increased fourfold, staffing committed to dealing with the issue has doubled, legal experts have been drafted, and rules changed to expedite sanctions. But the prevailing evidence speaks for itself: Labour’s political opponents and much of the media have trivialised and weaponised this issue for ideological ends.

“Progressives around the world are looking to this election and to the Labour Party as a beacon of hope in the struggle against emergent far-right nationalism, xenophobia and racism in much of the democratic world. It has never been more important that voters are made aware of the truth of what the Labour Party under Jeremy Corbyn stands for: the eradication of all racism, including antisemitism, wherever it rears its ugly head.”

In case the link between antisemitism and anti-Zionism wasn’t already obvious.
