So after a few days of the Tories smearing Jeremy Corbyn as a drippy hippy, they’ve gone back to smearing him as a terrorist sympathiser, oh for fucks sake if you Tories are going to smear Corbyn at least be fucking consistent about it!
Over the weekend, Jeremy Corbyn gave an interview to Sophie Ridge of Sky News where he’s been accused of not condemning IRA, despite the fact in the particular interview he repeatedly condemns all terrorism linked with The Troubles in Northern Ireland, ah but you see there’s the problem, he’s condemned all violence there’s been linked to The Troubles in Northern Ireland which includes the wrong doings by the British Army etc & not the IRA alone. No one is doubting the IRA committed horrendous terrorist atrocities, definitely not hearing Jeremy Corbyn deny this, but it’s not as if the British Army & security services didn’t commit wrong doings in Northern Ireland during The Troubles, for starters Bloody Sunday etc.
Just because Jeremy Corbyn might have met members of the IRA back in the 1980s, it doesn’t mean was an IRA sympathiser! I think its been pretty much established that Jeremy Corbyn has a record of somebody who seeks world peace & thus has involved himself in conflict resolution be it Northern Ireland or Israel, the ugly truth with many armed conflicts is that for there to be a peaceful resolution then you have to talk to all the players in whatever armed conflict no matter how much what they say or do you might think is utterly heinous. As a Jew I’m uncomfortable with Jeremy sitting down with representatives of terrorist groups such as Hezbollah & Hamas, but I understand, appreciate & respect why does & likewise as to why he might have spoken to IRA members.
The British government had to eventually negotiate with the political representatives of the IRA to pave the way for there to be relative peace in Northern Ireland & yet the Tories still condemn Jeremy Corbyn for having talked to Sinn Fein & the IRA. Maybe the next time some Tory wanker politician wades in with Jeremy Corbyn having been an IRA terrorist sympathiser on some mainstream media political/current affairs/news program, whichever Labour politician is on with them should remind all watching that the Tory government of Margret Thatcher supported the murderous junta of Augusto Pinochet & Apartheid South Africa.
It wasn’t Jeremy Corbyn who was supporting terrorism & mass murder back in the 1980s but the Tories were supporting plenty, the military junta in Chile, Apartheid South Africa, selling arms to Saddam Hussein in Iraq, helping to fund & train Osama bin Laden when he was part of the Mujahideen fighting the USSR’s occupation of Afghanistan, oh & if you want to bring it back to Northern Ireland in the 1980s then how about the collusion between Loyalist terrorist & the security services. It’s not like the Tories can point the finger at Jeremy Corbyn about supporting terrorism without that finger dripping with blood from the Tories have plenty of blood on their hands from all the mass murder they’ve fucking supported, much which Jeremy Corbyn & myself have campaigned against!
Fuck off to the Tories accusing Jeremy Corbyn supporting or sympathising with terrorists, I think the old saying goes those living in glass houses really shouldn’t throw rocks & that’s definitely true when it comes to the Tories supporting mass murder!
