    ““You can’t run a major political party by listening to what fringe elements are saying. You need to be in the mainstream. That’s where the Labor Party is positioned.”

    This from the same creep who likes to catch up for tea and bikkies with a Jew hater by the name of Jeremy Corbyn.

    Socialists like Albo are “mainstream” now?

    Funny how “links” to an allegedly “extreme” individual or church – even inherited from one’s parents – are enough for a person to be denounced as a “nazi” and expelled from politics… but Albanese is free to consort with – and his party free to take cash from – the CFMEU. If you don’t fight back, this is what they do.

    Disagreeing Corbyn’s politics does not warrant his being labelled a Jew hater. Corbyn’s support for aspects of issues involving Palestinians can be argued against, but state operated smear campaigns are something else, occurring as they do with regularity against Trump as well. There is no evidence of Corbyn being hateful towards anyone. Pope Francis, too, has supported aspects of the Palestinian cause, and he can be either countered or agreed with. Yet it would be wrong to call the Pope a Jew hater, despite any other putative failings. The world of propaganda and malincentives has deceit down to am very fine art indeed. No need to argue, merely destroy.

    Says Mr. 32%.

    The Liberal Party, for all its inadequacies, still managed 35% of the primary vote.

    Seems the centre might be further to the right than Mr. Albanese imagines.

    Oh dear, Mr Corbyn has made his enmity towards Jews known for decades. He’s quite proud of it.

    But clearly you don’t mind his Jew hatred. Wonder why?

    I don’t think it’s any coincidence that the only non-Muslim state in the Middle East – which happens to be Jewish – is unique in being the target of by far the most strident criticism and venom internationally.

    I think that in the British Labour Party (itself riddled with anti-Semites) even Corby became too much of an embarrassment in the end.

    Here’s a slightly sympathetic but reasonable rundown of Corbyn and accusations of anti-Semetism …

    It started when the party shifted to supporting the Palestinian cause for statehood and more land, and then Labour gradually included association with anti-Israel militia groups such as Hezbollah and Hamas … although not direct support of those groups.

    Corbyn has always denied any racism and made sure his criticism was against “Zionism” so you can read into that what you want I suppose. I never much liked the man … nor what British Labour did to the UK either for that matter. Gordon Brown is the best rebuttal if anyone tries to tell you that lizard people don’t exist, and Tony Blair makes anyone’s skin crawl … him and his dishonest little dossier that lied the country into war. Yes we do remember!!!

    Red Ed Milliband, as commie as they come and not cunning enough to hide it sat around largely useless for five years giving the occasional angsty speech on climate change or whatever the latest identity cause might be.

    They haven’t produced any quality leadership in decades.
