Political rule #1: Never criticize Jews.

The Guardian

Jackie Walker has been removed from her position as vice chair of Momentum following widespread criticism of her comments about antisemitism and Holocaust Memorial Day.

A statement from Momentum’s steering committee said Walker, a Kent-based activist, had been stripped of her role following a vote at a meeting on Monday evening.

But a statement from the committee said she was not deemed to have made any antisemitic comments and remained a member of Momentum and the steering committee.

The statement also condemned as “unacceptable” that a video of Walker making her contentious comments was given to the press, and argued that she should not be expelled from the Labour party.

Walker had previously been suspended from the party after she wrote about Jewish people as “financiers of the sugar and slave trade”, but was then reinstated.

Then last week, during Momentum’s inaugural gathering-meets-festival. which ran in parallel to the official Labour conference in Liverpool, Walker was heavily criticised by the head of the Jewish Labour Movement for arguing that the problem of antisemitism in the party had been deliberately exaggerated to undermine Jeremy Corbyn, who is backed by the grassroots campaign group.

Later in the week, footage emerged of Walker criticising Holocaust Memorial Day at a Labour party antisemitism training session and taking issue with the definition of antisemitism.

“In terms of Holocaust Day, wouldn’t it be wonderful if Holocaust Day was open to all people who experienced Holocaust?” Walker was heard telling organisers at the event. Holocaust Memorial Day is intended to commemorate all victims of the Nazi Holocaust and other genocides, including the atrocities in Bosnia and Rwanda.

Walker said that was not how she viewed the event. “In practice, it’s not actually circulated and advertised as such,” she said. “I was looking for information and I still haven’t heard a definition of antisemitism that I can work with.”

At the same event Walker questioned why Jewish schools needed particular security to protect themselves from possible attack.

In the wake of the comments, and criticism of them, Walker was again suspended by Labour and Momentum’s steering committee met to consider her fate. A statement on Monday said she had been removed as vice chair by a vote of seven to three.

Walker’s comments around the Labour conference and in TV interviews at the time “and by not understanding concern caused by her statements, have led the steering committee to view her behaviour as irresponsible and lose confidence in her as vice chair,” the statement said.

It continued: “Having read reports of what Jackie Walker is alleged to have said, listened to the leaked video and heard Jackie’s version of events, the committee does not regard any of the comments she appears to have made, taken individually, to be antisemitic.

“However, the committee does consider her remarks on Holocaust Memorial Day and on security of Jewish schools to be ill-informed, ill-judged and offensive. In such circumstances, the committee feels that Jackie should have done more to explain herself to mitigate the upset caused and should have been careful about statements on this and related subjects, whatever her record as an anti-racist, which the committee applauds.”

Momentum was “concerned” that footage of the training session was passed to the press, the statement said, adding: “The leak is unacceptable and undermines much needed political education.”

It finished: “On the basis of the evidence the committee has seen, Jackie should not be expelled from the Labour party.”

  1. “Walker questioned why Jewish schools needed particular security to protect themselves from possible attack.”
    I have seen this in Sydney on some of the most expensive real estate area in Australia. No Muslims live anywhere near these Jews. Both Sate Police and private security are used at the front gate.
    My theory is that this “security” is to induce a state of paranoia in the Jew children, that they are hated and might be killed at any moment. Like the “six million”. One can only guess how many hours at school are spent giving Jews paranoid ideas about how every non Jew hates them.
    What a racket.
    As France has shown multiple times, any serious terrorist attack can not be stopped by half baked security measure. Charlie Hebdo was known as a likely target but nothing was done to protect the journalists.
    The security at Jew schools is done to undermine and demonise right wing white people and pretend they are likely to kill Jew children. Meanwhile the adult Jew males need no security going to and from work.

    Jackie Walker speaks the truth. Farrakhan says many of the same things. That Jews ran the slave trade for example. If only they would also talk about Jew bankers secretly financing the (((Bolsheviks))).

    • I think you’ve got it right, Robert. I’ll add that I wonder if Jews enjoy feeling paranoid. Flooding the US and Europe with Muslims is part of their agenda, I know, but at the same time, maybe it makes them more paranoid, which also makes them feel some perverse enjoyment. It’s just a stray thought.

  2. Webster’s 1828 dictionary….

    HOL’OCAUST, noun [Gr. whole, and burnt, to burn.] A burnt-sacrifice or offering, the whole of which was consumed by fire; a species of sacrifice in use among the Jews and some pagan nations.

    See that? 1828! So Jews had sacrificial parties! Well, they certainly sacrificed 60 million Russians!

    We should dilute its current reference by using it often to refer to other events even if the word doesn’t quite accurately apply. There’s a holocaust going on in Haiti caused by Hurricane Matthew.

    Jews aren’t very self-aware. What they call anti-semetism is really projecting their own hatred onto Whites thinking Whites won’t notice. Watch them closely, ACLU, SPLC, ADL, and others, whenever they go after someone for anti-semetism, racism, and all the other labels. It’s Jews who are guilty of their own accusations.

    • Excellent thoughts, Wullfe. Let’s do as you suggest and use the term holocaust to describe all sorts of things. I’ll try to remember to get the ball rolling and hopefully others will do the same.

      • Also ((they))) must hate the word Holohoax.
        The new religion is HollowCostInanity.
        Maybe get young adults and older teens to use the word, by banning it. I remember my son used to say “That was really gay” to describe some boring or bad experience. He learned this at high school.
        So get the trendies to say “Wow that live band really Holocausted bigtime”.
        “Jon Stewart Holocausted Trump on air tonight”!
        “That gay parade was a real holocaust”!
        “Let’s holocaust the dance floor”.



    Babylonian Talmud, Tractate Sanhedrin 64a

    Soncino 1961 Edition, page 437

    Following the Mishnah is a discussion among the sages. One of the Talmud Sages, Rabbi Ashi, comments as follows:

    GEMARA. R. Ashi propounded: What if one caused his blind or sleeping son to pass through, (3) or if he caused his grandson by his son or daughter to pass through? — One at least of these you may solve. For it has been taught: [Any men … that giveth any of his seed unto Molech; he shall he put to death … And I will set my face against that man, and will cut him off
    from among his people;] because he hath given of his seed unto Molech. Why is this stated? — Because it is said, there shall not be found among you any one
    that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire. From this I know it only of his son or daughter. Whence do I know that it applies to his son’s son or daughter’s son too? From the verse, [And if the people of the land do any ways hide their eyes from the man] when he giveth of his seed unto Molech [and kill him not: Then I will … cut him off.]

    — Babylonian Talmud, Tractate Sanhedrin 64b

    Soncino 1961 Edition, page 439

    Rabbi Dr. Freedman, one of the translators of the Soncino Tractate Sanhedrin, clarifies the passage. In a footnote, Rabbi Dr. Freedman confirms that the Talmud Sages use “seed” to denote living children,
    in the same sense as the Biblical translators understand the term in the above Biblical quotes. In this footnote, Rabbi Dr. Freedman paraphrases the question from Rabbi Ashi:

    3. Is ‘thou shalt not cause to pass’ applicable only to a son who can naturally pass through himself, but not to a blind or sleeping son, who must be led or carried, or does it apply to all?

    Rabbi Dr. Freedman

    Other footnotes within the same context clarify the fine point of distinction being drawn in the Mishnah and subsequent debates among the sages:

    5. Lev. XVIII, 21. This proves that the offence consists of two parts; (I) formal delivery to the priests, and (2) causing the seed to pass through the fire.

    Rabbi Dr. Freedman (2)

    5. As two separate offences, proving that giving one’s seed to Molech is not idolatry. The differences [sic] is, that if one sacrificed to Molech, or caused his son to pass through the fire to some other deity, he is
    not punished.

    Rabbi Dr. Freedman (3)

    Following the Mishnah, Sanhedrin 64a and 64b contain a rousing debate between the Sages concerning:

    * the circumstances under which worshipping an idol is idolatry,

    * which idols may be worshipped without indulging in idolatry,

    * which parts of child sacrifice in what combination are punishable, and

    * how children may be sacrificed without violating Leviticus.
