Left-Wing Activist Peter Tatchell Calls Out Hypocrisy of the British Left

Peter Tatchell is a British human rights campaigner. Naturally, he supports BDS against Israel, and is highly critical of Israel:

While I find many of Peter’s views on Israel abhorrent, he is less hypocritical than most other so-called activists. For instance, he does call out Hamas and the PA for their crimes, and does not just focus on Israel while ignoring actual human rights violations elsewhere in the world.

Which makes it not entirely surprising to me that he has called out the hypocrisy of the Left:

London solidarity today with Ukraine’s anti-fascist resistance against Russian imperialist aggression, with Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan. I organised chants “Arm Ukraine. Total economic war on Russian imperialism” with the support of Ukrainian activists. Stewards intervened, using megaphones to drown out the chants. Censorship! The only chants allowed were “Stand with Ukraine” and “Refugees welcome here.”

Shamefully, there were no socialist or trade union banners that I saw. Not one! Just a handful of left activists. WTF is wrong with the British left? They’ve abandoned anti-fascism & anti- imperialism – unless it is against US or Israel. Double standards!

Tatchell is correct, but it is even worse than this. The British left have also embraced antisemitism in a big bad way.
