    There would be the "consequence" of British Jews feeling bad or something because the guy they said was a big fat meanie got elected so they would feel shunned by their countrymen.

    If youre a lower class british jew i doubt u would have minded him on a policy level anyway so just grouping them not along class lines seems weird

    In any case i think this is the best case scenario for the EU which includes me as much as it will pain me to see people post their desolate social security on social media. A lexit would prob habe feathered the consequences of a brexit too much for the average person to really care which might have given more fuel to anti european parties in the EU. And with a bit of luck we get the good parts of that island back in a decade or two.

    Does suck for the lower class but i think were used to getting fucked at this point

    basically the only downside to me personally is that people keep bringing up the upsides of tony blair (outside of his existence proving that there is no justice to be found in this world, and that god probably doesnt exist)

    Jews seem to be singular group for whom this sort of argument ever gets made. I have never seen the equivalent "Oh, yeah, don't mind that this dude keeps uncomfortably bringing up your black skin and watermelons, and endorsing white nationalists. No need to feel insulted, really, or not vote for him - it's just, whatever, you know? Given he's not gonna send you all back to being slaves, well, really what's the problem? (And it clearly doesn't indicate any worrying moral or intellectual failing on his part that he keeps doing this in spite of everything. No, no, not at all)."

    Or, to insert Boris, insofar as as he's not gonna undo the Sex Discrimination Act, it's clearly no problem for me that he whines about the "erosion of male liberty" like some sodding reddit incel, or that he wants to "address the feebleness of the modern Briton, his reluctance or inability to take control of his woman and be head of a household", or that he has boasted about groping female colleagues, or ... &c. &c. &c. (&c. &c. &c - Boris has a terribly long list).

    Bugger that. If these imbeciles say things that are both morally repugnant and personally offensive, then damned if you're meant to brush that off and not question their fitness to represent you. They can do one.

    im making this argument because i dont think the tories are rather shy about their absolute disdain for muslims and meanwhile corbyn at the very least tried to be amicable on this issue when the tactically sound response should have been "fuck off being critical of israel is not antisemitic no matter how many councilmen facebook posts from some 3 dude town you pull up that could have been investigated in a blair government but werent"

    Bugger pissing Israel. I provided plenty of examples of Corbyn - Corbyn personally - mouthing off in his imbecilic fashion that have nothing to do with it; my links added more. I have repeatedly stressed this, and repeatedly stressed my desire for people to give up their apparent monomaniacal certainty that the only possible cause for an accusation of anti-semitism can be righteous support for the hallowed anti-imperial cause.

    Argue honestly.

    Quote one that isnt you reading it into a dog whistle and we can continue I suppose. Im open to changing my mind, considering that boris went in with hook noses there must be quite the bangers I missed.

    Insofar as your tolerance for what are blatant and well-condemned dog whistles - including ones that Corbyn himself admits to be such - is apparently beyond high, I don't think myself able to convince you until you see what's plainly there.

    Its weird that you say its blatant and then i tell u to not use a dogwhistle accusation and its suddenly hard but i guess this is some cultural difference in what constitutes bad faith argumentation. The british incompatibility with eu values is worse than i thought

    Actually, I was responding to a quote about Sanders. So in that specific case, I reiterate: identity politics have nothing to do with that, it's just Trump, his cronies, and Republicans in general latching onto whatever they can (and even outright fabricating things) to discredit their opposition, as usual.

    IMO the right accusing Corbyn and/or Sanders of anti-Semitism is a bit like criticizing someone for not washing their hands whilst you are in the middle of shitting in the reservoir.

    Yeah, it's just pure hypocrisy. I am astounded by the level of cognitive dissonance displayed by the people who genuinely believe Sanders is anti-semitic while still being a rabid defender of Trump.

    German security services is recruiting hundreds of new officers to combat right-wing radicals
    So lite fascism (which is also known to have actual fascist in their ranks) is now expected to be antifas. How cool is that.

    Well, at least they're actually doing something meaningful to stop literal nazis and anti-semitism.

    Trying to appeal to woke centrists and liberals using any race/gender argument is still idpol, especially if they are that desperate.

    Identity politics can't really be divorced from actual politics, though. That's sort of the whole point.
