I believe the phrase you are carefully avoiding is ‘Zionists’.
They weren’t heckling, but arguing with him after the speech.
“This [Hassassian’s speech] was dutifully recorded by the thankfully silent Zionists who were in the audience on that occasion, and then came up and berated him afterwards for what he’d said.”
(from the BBC)
And forget his weaksauce excuse that it wasn’t racist because he was using it in the ‘technical’ sense. it just means that he was referring to friends of Jews as well. This is a well worn anti-Semitic trope, that Jews, *cough* sorry, Zionists, don’t belong here, even if they’ve lived here “all their life”.
Yes, they do. Repeatedly. Again and again and again. Strange that. It’s almost like there’s a pattern…
Yes, there is. But don’t confuse that with this.
The right wing press are overjoyed that this smear’s got legs, and it’s got legs because this one’s true.
Don’t confuse Ocasio-Cortez with Corbyn. Ocasio is new to politics, only getting involved in the past couple of years and has very little baggae as a result.
Corbyn, on the other hand, is a career politician having been an elected representitive for 44 years (35 of them in Parliament). He’s spent the vast majority of his time on the fringes of the party where there’s been little scrutiny of his actions and attitudes and that’s now coming back to bite him.
Also, don’t confuse the Democrats with Labour. The American Overton Window is far to the right of Britain, which I think probably now puts them slightly to the right of the Tories. For comparison, the Republicans are far to the right of UKIP.
