“JC refused to apologise to the Rabbi”

In a disastrous interview with Andrew Neil, Jeremy Corbyn has refused four times to apologise for his party’s rabid anti-semitism – despite the extraordinary intervention of the Chief Rabbi of the United Kingdom and Commonwealth. Ephraim Mirvis says Corbyn is “unfit for high office.” As a leaked post-debacle Apple chat shows, neither interview nor intervention undermined the loyalty of his disciples:

 
Waspi doesn’t stand for white Anglo-Saxon Protestant incel, by the way. Corbyn has promised the Women Against State Pension Inequality he’ll borrow £58 billion – not a typo – to pay “compensation.”

    JC frequently refused to apologize to rabbis. Oh wait, you mean Jeremy Corbyn…

  2. jupes

    Well Labour has just locked in the M*sl*m vote.

  3. RobK

    So many JCs it gets confusing.😺

  4. PB

    Oh the poor Rabbi. Does the sufferink never end?

  5. RobK

    Does the sufferink never end?
    The vote polarisation has ramped up on religious grounds rather than policy. I don’t think that is good.

  6. Mother Lode

    Does the sufferink never end?

    Apologising is merely good manners.

    Refusing to apologise has a more pointed implication.

    Refusing to apologise for minor offence is more offensive than the original misdeed.

    It bespeaks greater malice than the original discourtesy. That is what is being pointed to here.

    All they had to do was not be crazy…

  8. Derp

    Intercontinental crazy.
    JC refusing to apologise for what is some pretty toxic anti-Antisemitism in Labour despite
    how the WaPo tried to euphemise it.

  9. Tony Tea

    I wish we had someone like Andrew Neil.

  10. Derp

    Andrew Neil is a fantastic, hard interviewer who takes it to all sides.
    He rips into Extinction Rebellion just as strongly as he does into Ben Shapiro.
    A true professional.

  11. thefrollickingmole

    Its even better, this has all happened on the day the party was releasing its “Race & faith” platform.

  12. JC

    I don’t think I’ve ever had an argument with a Rabbi.

  13. mh

    JC, remember your Je wish friend in New York who told you that he has to support the Democrats otherwise he wont be popular in his synagogue.

  14. Well Labour has just locked in the M*sl*m vote.

    Possibly not. Corbyn is a non-believer. Non-believers do not fare well with those who believe in God (it doesn’t matter which God).

  15. Vagabond

    In a recent Spectator review of a biography of Corbyn he was described as follows:

    The impression that abides after reading Mr Bower’s biography of him is of a mendacious, misogynistic, incompetent, financially inept, disorganised, unreliable, hypocritical, boring, racist, skip-rummaging lothario of no charisma and little intellect.

    Look like a very accurate description.

    And those are his most redeeming features.

    Being Jooooish myself, I feel I have some skin in the game. I say good on Rabbi Mirvis….about time too Rabbi….but the ugly truth is is that Corbyn should have been called out years ago for the grotesque anti-Semite and racist that he is (as well as many of his fellow hard-left travellers in British Labour). However the UK Jooooish community leadership, like our very own spineless Joooish communal organisations here in Australia (apart from one or two)….are generally manned by cowardly and supine leftist toadies who prefer to hide behind the multicultural clap trap and who love to host Iftar dinners to try and appease genocidal Jooo haters and who refuse to call out the increasingly ugly anti-Semitism that is found in Australian Labor and in particular the Greens. Much easier to call out Fraser Anning for using insensitive words in a maiden speech…..because it is always easier to smear a right-wing politician….but these same communal organisations remain meek and silent when dealing with the glaring Jooo hatred found on the left. The fact is that the British Board of Deputies have been utterly cowardly for decades now when dealing with the far-left and Muesli anti-Semitism….hatreds that have now infected and infested British Labour…so what happens when you appease? You wake up with the nightmare of Corbyn as leader…and who is someone who might even end up being PM and good golly…what happens….British Jooos and British communal leaders panic…well they should have been panicking years ago. And we are not far behind….we have here a leader of Australian Labor who is not altogether dissimilar to Corbyn (though not quite as bad)…but who has zero hesitation in having his picture taken with Corbyn when in London…..and yet there has been utter silence from our communal leaders. Instead they try and smear Trump (who has Jooooish children and grandchildren) and Orban as an anti-Semite even though, strangely for someone who is sooooo anti-Semitic…..the Jooooish community in Hungary is growing and is also the safest in Europe (why…..because Hungary is very firm about taking in a certain religion) and Orban is a strong ally of Isr**l. But it is Orban and Trump who are the anti-Semites? You couldn’t make this up…beyond a joke. But the joke will end badly for us Jooos….and Rabbi Mirvis knows it.

    Apologies about the rant!

    It’s bred into them – in the two coast state J*ws. It’s like the right function of the brain doesn’t work. One dude cannot bring himself to say he votes GOP and refers to himself as a conservative D’rat.
    The religious types aren’t this way though and they’re having 258 kids per family unit. Just be patient and you’ll see our this turn around. The religious ones despise the D’rats for the most part.

  21. Robbo

    I think it would be fascinating to see Corbyn and his tribe elected to government. Britain needs a change of pace in government and what better change than having a lunatic leftie who wears socks and sandals as PM? You really have to love a guy who goes to the poll with a range of policies that will see Britain bankrupt within 12 months. Corbyn has guts but not much else, in fact he has nothing else but that will not stop a a large slab of dumb arsed voters supporting him and his fellow Labour idiots.

    Time for all religions to keep their noses and their church out of politics and the law

  23. Ivan Denisovich

    how the WaPo tried to euphemise it.

    Melanie Phillips:

    Chief Rabbis never get involved in politics. In person, Mirvis is averse to controversy. The fact that he has felt the need to make such an intervention, that British Jews feel so appalled by what surrounds them and fearful for their future that this is felt necessary, has caused decent British people to express their shock and concern.

    Much of the reaction on social media, however, has itself consisted of vile antisemitism. Well, of course. Over the past few years, leaked emails and Facebook posts circulating in and around the Labour party have consisted of astonishingly virulent antisemitic messages and images depicting Jews as Nazis, or parroting the medieval blood libels that Jews eat children, or accusing Israel of supporting Isis or being behind 9/11 and demonising Jews as a demonic conspiracy against humanity.

    Some of this comes from Labour party members, as this shocking Telegraph story reported last Sunday.

    Much of it, however, extends way beyond Labour. For the “poison” of antisemitism, which has been legitimised and encouraged by the party hierarchy’s refusal even to acknowledge the nature and extent of this depravity, goes much further than Jeremy Corbyn and his hard-left acolytes. It has penetrated deep into progressive western circles.

    This is because the signature belief of progressivism has become the unholy triad of anti-Zionism, Israel-bashing and support for the Palestinian cause. And many if not most decently-minded progressives, as well as many fair-minded people beyond such circles (including even some Jews), fail to understand that anti-Zionism, Israel-bashing and support for the Palestinian cause are the modern mutation of the protean and never-ending scourge of antisemitism.

    They think that antisemitism is a prejudice against Jews as people, that anti-Zionism and Israel-bashing are merely attacks on a political project which are therefore legitimate, and that Palestinianism is a worthy cause supporting the rights of a displaced and oppressed people……….

    Mahmoud Abbas and the Palestinian Authority regularly present the Jews as the source of all evil in the world and a conspiracy against all humanity. They claim that the Jews were behind 9/11 and that they control the world’s media, finance and US foreign policy.

    So why should anyone be surprised when Labour party supporters and other so-called “progressives” come out with their claims that the Jews were behind 9/11 and that they control the world’s media, finance and US foreign policy in a conspiracy against all humanity?

    Alas, experience tells us that the Chief Rabbi’s intervention is likely to make antisemitism in Britain even worse. Yet he was right to have spoken up; indeed, he had no moral alternative but to do so……….

  24. JC

    Yea mh. He’s not a Republican, even though he mostly votes GOP. He’s a Conservative Democrat! Their right brain doesn’t operate politically. It’s a right brain malfunction in the two coastal states particularly.

    Don’t worry though, as the religious ones are breeding at the rate of knots and they have no issue voting GOP. 🙂

    Well said, though perhaps a bit understated. ☺☺☺

    Ephraim Mirvis says Corbyn is “unfit for high office.”

    This would about the least important reason from a very long list of reasons why Corbyn is unfit for high office.

  27. Squirrel

    And we thought our recent election was consequential.

  28. Colonel Crispin Berka

    The new Conservative tactic for dealing with SJWs has been “never apologise to SJWs”.
    Jeremy Corbyn, massive SJW himself, has just proven this is the best tactic.
    Thanks, Jeremy!

  29. C.L.

    And we thought our recent election was consequential.

    Indeed, Squirrel.
    US and UK are facing elections that are epochal for the entire Western world (insofar as such an entity still exists). Morro versus Shorto, though? Not such a big deal.

    Thanks JC. Just read this first reply that got caught in the spaminator. Funny.

  31. a reader

    I was very, very disappointed to see an athlete I love a lot retweet some nonsense from the rapper Stormzy that advocated a vote for Corbyn. I want to hope she’s just misguided but alas I fear not.

  32. Morro versus Shorto, though?

    Warm piss cutting through wet lettuce like butter.

  33. Being Jooooish myself, I feel I have some skin in the game.

    Shades of Mel Brooks. Which would mean a black sheriff threatening to kill a damned nibba (himself).

  34. Seriously though…

    Idiots like Corbyn are still fighting a proxy war of a country that no longer exists – the USSR.

    As are all the BDS morons.

    Imagine taking up the political goals of the Kingdom of Burgundy, the Langfang Republic or The Californian Republic; or hell, the Incas.

  35. Dr Faustus

    The reason for Labour’s anti-Semitism, and Corbyn’s vile wriggling, is simple political demographics:

    UK Moozlim population ~2.6 million;
    UK Jooish population ~260,000.

    Absolutely no point lookiung for moral leadership from the Party of Shite, or it’s shitful leader, when there is a bunch of red-hot anti-Semitic votes in the balance.

    That simple.

  36. struth

    The jooos reaction to modern antisemitism is easily understood.
    They have been brainwashed into believing the Holocaust was the result of extreme right wing when it was in fact socialists then as it is socialists now.
    Factor thst into your observations and it makes perfect sense.
    Many brainwashed jooooos feel they must be anti right wing at all costs.

  37. Jannie

    The prohibition on the word Jew becomes vaguely insulting to Jews when people are forced to use alternatives like Jooos or J*w. Jew is a perfectly respectable word, so is Hebrew or Israelite.

  38. Natural Instinct

    Dr Faustus is correct. It’s about political demographics.
    And you don’t think Tony Burke is not playing a similar game in Western Sydney with his mates

    Only when governments
    a) stop trying to interfere with churches (invading the confessional, threatening prayer and counselling, legislating SSM, etc. ad nauseum)
    b) stop legislating new definitions of right and wrong, truth and falsehood (etc. ad nauseum)
    c) protecting alternate realities (LGBT+, Safe Schools, Is lem, climate change, open borders, The Noble Savage etc. ad nauseum)

    (And, yes, I know they overlap – it’s a politicus interferus spectrum disorder)

  44. Tel

    Let me get to grips with this … Stale-Pale-Male™ Chief Rabbi accuses Stale-Pale-Male™ Corbyn of Wacism-Wacism-Wacism™ because Corbyn took the side of some brown people who claim their U-man-Rights™ grant them ownership over a chunk of land that may (or may not) happen to be some biblical state owned by someone else.

    Corbyn can’t call out the hypocrisy of this (because he’s too much of a hypocrite himself) but he can’t apologize either because the “Progressive” lynch mob mentality sees an apology as admission of guilt and then they all dogpile on.

    Did I miss anything important there?

  45. peter hindrup

    Corbyn has said that he will recognise the Palestinian State and stop the sale of British arms to Israel —
    Two excellent reasons for voting for him!
