Chicago's Dyke March Targets LGBTQ Jews With Old Fashioned Anti-Semitism per Tablet Magazine

'It was only a matter of time before they came for the Jews.

Last weekend, organizers of Chicago's Dyke March asked three participants carrying Jewish LGBT pride flags—a Star of David embossed over the traditional rainbow—to leave. "It was a flag from my congregation which celebrates my queer, Jewish identity," Laurel Grauer told the Windy City Times. According to the paper, Grauer "lost count of the number of people who harassed her" at the festival. The only other individuals to be treated in such fashion were a contingent of Christian anti-gay activists, whom marchers surrounded with "sheets of tarpaulin, trans pride flags and bed linen" so that their hateful signs could not be seen.

Asked to explain why they would kick Jews out of their event, Dyke March organizers were unapologetic and unambiguous. The flags, they explained, "made people feel unsafe" and the march was "anti-Zionist." Forget equating a piece of cloth with an act of physical intimidation, an illustration of the hysterical progressive rhetoric that likens speech to "violence." There was nothing "Zionist" about the allegedly threatening flag (other than its containing the Star of David, which also appears on the Israeli flag). What made these people "feel unsafe" was the presence of Jews. Censoring this Jewish symbol, meanwhile, organizers were perfectly content to let participants wave the flag of Palestine, a political entity where LGBT people are routinely harassed and murdered.


Last weekend's outrage in Chicago is but the latest example of Jews being written out of progressive movements. Whether Jeremy Corbyn's Labour Party or Linda Sarsour's #Resistance, Jews are not only being made to feel unwelcome in left-leaning spaces, but anti-Semitism—masked as anti-Zionism—is becoming a marker of virtue. These episodes of ostracism are almost always undertaken to appease Muslims, which makes no sense under any circumstances, least of all for the LGBT community, which is welcomed and celebrated in the world's only Jewish country and subject to state-sponsored harassment, imprisonment, and murder in nearly every Muslim-majority one.'

Newspaper headlines: Jeremy Corbyn says he will be 'PM in six months' per BBC News

The BBC's newspaper headlines review joyously reports that:

'Glastonbury founder Michael Eavis says Jeremy Corbyn told him he will be prime minister "in six months", according to the Metro.

The Labour leader also reportedly said he would scrap the Trident nuclear weapons system.'

John McDonnell: Grenfell victims 'murdered by political decisions' per BBC News

John McDonnell politicises the deaths of people in the Grenfell Tower and the BBC are there to cheerlead.

'Labour's John McDonnell has claimed victims of the Grenfell Tower fire were "murdered" by "political decisions".

The shadow chancellor made the claims at a Glastonbury Festival event on Sunday - a day after Jeremy Corbyn addressed thousands of people there.

Mr McDonnell claimed the decision to "view housing as only for financial speculation" meant the Grenfell Tower victims were "murdered".

He also said closing fire stations "contributed" to the deaths.'

The ongoing drama of Palestinian Lies per Israel News Online

'US envoys Jason Greenblatt and Jared Kushner, who met this week in Jerusalem and Ramallah with Israeli and Palestinian Authority (PA) officials to discuss reviving the peace process, have discovered what previous US Middle East envoys learned in the past two decades — that the PA has not, cannot, and will not change.

During their meeting in Ramallah with PA President Mahmoud Abbas, the two US emissaries were told that the Palestinians will not accept anything less than an independent state along on the pre-1967 lines with East Jerusalem as its capital.

Abbas also made it clear that he has no intention to make concessions on the "right of return" for Palestinian "refugees." This means he wants a Palestinian state next to Israel while flooding Israel with millions of Palestinian "refugees" and turning it, too, into another Palestinian state.

At the meeting, Abbas also reiterated his demand that Israel release all Palestinian prisoners, including convicted murderers with Jewish blood on their hands, as part of any peace agreement. The release of terrorists in the past has only resulted in increased terrorism against Israel.

According to Abbas's spokesperson, Nabil Abu Rudaineh, the PA president told Kushner and Greenblatt that a "just and comprehensive peace should be based on all United Nations resolutions (pertaining to the Israeli-Arab conflict) and the (2002) Arab Peace Initiative." Translation: Israel must withdraw to the indefensible pre-1967 lines and allow armed Palestinian factions to sit on the hilltops overlooking Ben Gurion Airport and Tel Aviv.

Abbas's position reflects accurately the policy of the PA leadership over the past two decades — a policy that has been regularly relayed to all previous US administrations, successive Israeli governments and the international community.

To his credit, Abbas has been nothing short of consistent. He has never, ever, displayed a willingness to offer any concessions to Israel. He misses no opportunity to reaffirm his demands to all world leaders and government officials, with whom he meets on a regular basis.'

Sweden: 150,000 women undergo FGM, authorities admit large areas under Islamic rule per Jihad Watch

This Jihad Watch report on Muslim areas in Sweden is well worth a read.

This passage is of great interest:

'In many areas, self-appointed sharia police threaten and harass women to follow Islamic law, Sharia. Threats and harassment can be the consequence if you are not married, if your legs are not covered or if you drink a glass of alcohol on your balcony. Neighbors, strangers, even children and adolescents, threaten women to follow Sharia. If the women do not comply, the sharia police increase their intimidation. A woman tells how a group of men climbed into her apartment by using the drainage pipe and confronted her in her own home because she refused to comply to their demands.'

I wonder if there are any areas of the UK that operate similarly.

Book and documentary to launch on Labour's 'Whitewashed' Chakrabarti inquiry into antisemitism per The Jewish Chronicle

'Almost a year to the day after the publication of Baroness Chakrabarti's inquiry into "antisemitism and other forms of racism" in the Labour Party, a book and documentary on the report and its failings are due to be released.

They reveal that individuals who submitted evidence to the investigation claim they were ignored by the peer, leaving them feeling "foolish" and "abandoned".

Whitewashed will be screened on Monday, with the book launch taking place at the same time. The book documents 17 submissions on antisemitism, mostly from Labour members, to Baroness Chakrabarti's probe.

Following the publication of her findings on June 30 last year, it emerged that Jeremy Corbyn, the Labour leader, had nominated Ms Chakrabarti, the former director of Liberty, for elevation to the House of Lords.

The Board of Deputies subsequently described her report and its aftermath as "a whitewash-for-peerages scandal".'

They had been convinced by a 'false news' social media posting that the Tory manifesto was committed to privatisation of the NHS. Totally untrue in that the manifesto actually promised a spending increase in real terms for the NHS. No one among his colleagues, most of whom are under 35, seemed the least bit interested in Corbyn's warped views on the Middle East and anti-Semitism.'

Police launch Al Quds Day rally probe per The Jewish Chronicle

'Claims made by an organiser of the anti-Israel Al Quds Day rally that Zionists were to blame for the Grenfell fire tragedy are now being investigated as a possible hate crime.

Officers from the Metropolitan Police have confirmed that they will review comments made by Nazim Ali – director of the self-styled "advocacy group" the  Islamic Human Rights Commission which organised the annual march  - during the two-hours he led supporters along the capital's streets.

The Met also confirmed that they are conducting a second probe into whether an open display of flags of the banned terror group Hezbollah at Sunday's march contravened UK terror laws.'

UK population rise of 538,000 is biggest for 70 years per BBC News

Hidden away in this BBC report on the latest population figures is this telling passage:

'The population of the UK has increased by just over five million in 11 years - previously it took 35 years, from 1970 to 2005, to make the same leap.'

Think of that when lefty scum including the BBC complain about shortages of housing and school places, longer waiting lists for hospital and doctors appointments and so on.

38 Jews and 300,000 Muslims

Elder of Ziyon has a fascinating report on people visiting The Temple Mount in Jerusalem,

'In the past 24 hours, according to Arab media, 38 Jews visited the Temple Mount.

This is, of course, terrible. How can Jews peacefully visit their holiest site? Clearly it is a violation of Muslim rights.

Also in the past 24 hours, according to the same Islamic Waqf that zealously counts every Jew, some 300,000 Muslims visited the same site.
Yet the Muslims complain about restrictions to their freedom of religion.'
  Fascinating and the sort of imbalance in figures that the BBC should be interested in.

The elderly voters deserted the Conservatives at the general election

Mike Smithson at Political Betting has a great article that includes the above chart.

'There’s one group of voters that traditionally the Tories have been able to regard as bankers – the oldies, those in the growing 65+ age segment.

 My analysis of that, reflected in the chart above, finds that the PM is struggling to hold onto to the oldies. The chart numbers are based on subtracting those who have an unfavourable view of TMay from those who have a favourable one.

As is shown she had been doing extremely well with the 65+ group with huge favourability margins.

In the latest polling she’s still in positive territory but only just by just 4 points. It used to be 55%

This doesn’t bode well for the blue team if there is a new general election which the party’s precarious parliamentary position might well lead to.

She used to be an electoral asset. Now it is looking like she is an electoral liability.'

Why did Theresa May attack the elderly in her Conservative Party manifesto? Stupidity or deliberate, I can think of no other reasons.

LBC report that
'Sadiq Khan Backs Amnesty On Grenfell Tower Illegal Immigrants

The Mayor of London has called on the government to ensure any illegal immigrants who lived in Grenfell Tower to be protected.'
'Sadiq Khan has told LBC that he is backing a complete amnesty. He said: "No action must be taken against anybody in Grenfell Tower who comes forward.

"There may be some people who are sub-letting, breaching their tenancy agreement.

"There may be people who have got friends and family visiting, who they are worried about if they report them because they haven't got immigration status.

"All of those people should feel confident that if they come forward and speak to the authorities, that no action will be taken."'
Leaving aside the questionable sense in giving people an amnesty on immigration matters because they were illegally occupying a building that burnt down, is this not an invitation for other illegal immigrants to claim that they were living in Grenfell Tower at the time of the fire and so should get citizenship and a new flat?

Well it's only money after all...

Joseph and the amazing disappearing Israel reference

It's always Israel, why?

'The Wellington City Council has apologised to Sir Tim Rice after the word "Israel" vanished from song sheets featuring the renowned lyricist's work.

The printed lyrics – with a modified version of Close Every Door from Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber's Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat – were prepared for this year's annual Wellington children's festival, Artsplash.

In song sheets distributed to Wellington schools taking part in Artsplash, the phrase "Children of Israel" was changed to "Children of Kindness".'

Physically attacked at SOAS after anti-Israel event with Roger Waters per Richard Millett's Blog

Richard Millett is someone that I have admired the courage of ever since I became acquainted with his work. So I was sad to read this piece today.

'It's with great sadness I have to write this piece. Having attended hundreds of anti-Israel events throughout London and beyond for 10 years I have never been hit. I have been threatened repeatedly but never thought someone would follow through. Last night that changed at SOAS, where I'm also an alumnus.'

I can't say that I'm surprised that Richard Millett was hit by an anti Israel individual, most of that type that I have encountered have not been adverse to at least threatening violence against supporters of Israel.

Does the revolution start tomorrow?

Craig at has a good piece today that includes this section:

'First, I want to commend this article by Melanie Phillips in The Times (£). Never mind terrorism or Brexit for a minute. Melanie has articulated a very urgent threat to the social cohesion that the State is so cack-handedly trying to maintain.

"Class warriors are cynically fanning the flames. Left-wing agitators are planning a "day of rage" tomorrow in protest at the government's austerity policies, which they say caused the tragedy. The protest is being led by the Movement for Justice By Any Means Necessary, whose Facebook page declares: "We must escalate our actions to take down this rotten government, which has lost all authority to govern."

(I read this when it appeared in the Spectator a few days ago.)

"What's happening is an attempt to stir insurrection on the streets against the democratically elected Westminster government. Labour's shadow chancellor John McDonnell has called for a million people to take to the streets on Saturday to force Theresa May from power. 

At a Liverpool conference on March 10, 2012, McDonnell said there were three ways to change society. The first was through the ballot box; the second via industrial action. "The third is basically insurrection, but we now call it direct action . . . we have an elected dictatorship, so I think we have a democratic right to use whatever means to bring this government down. The real fight now is in our communities, it's on the picket lines, it's in the streets."'

John McDonnell has called for insurrection, isn't that a criminal offence? Shouldn't it be? Will anyone at the BBC raise that question or are the lefty idiots there hoping that it will really kick off this time?

It's going to be very hot tomorrow - I predict a riot, or more.

I'll be avoiding central London for a start, but all town centres look pretty dodgy too. The BBC and the Marxists at the head of the British Labour Party are playing a very dangerous game, scarily it's a game that they might win.

Corbyn Praised at London Hezbollah Rally per Guido Fawkes

By their 'friends' you shall know them...

'The annual Al Quds day rally took place in central London yesterday afternoon. The Khomeinist march – in support of the destruction of the State of Israel – openly supports Hezbollah, whose military wing is a proscribed organisation in the UK. Jeremy Corbyn was photographed in front of a Hezbollah flag when he spoke at the march in 2012. This year he sensibly chose not to attend…

As the march snaked to the US Embassy in Grovsenor Square, anti-Israel chants rang out under dozens of yellow AK-47 emblazoned Hezbollah flags.

Addressing the rally, Mick Napier from the Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign accused "Zionists" of trying to depose Corbyn:

"This is a dramatic moment… Jeremy Corbyn has stood by the Palestinian people for 30 years, the Zionists hate him, they tried to get him prevented from becoming leader, they're trying to get him removed."

Meanwhile a speaker from Stop the War suggested Labour Friends of Israel are also trying to undermine Jez.

"Zionists" were blamed for the Grenfell tower fire by a speaker at the rally, underlining the level of blatant lunacy displayed at the event. This is a terror-linked rally that lavished praise on Jeremy Corbyn and which he formerly backed…

Thanks to Guido Fawkes for the reporting. Don't expect to learn the truth about such matters from the institutionally anti Israel and pro Labour Party BBC.

Champs-Élysées: Car 'deliberately hits' police van in Paris per BBC News

What interesting choice of words that is, a 'car deliberately hits' according to the BBC headline. Read the BBC report and we learn that:

'A car deliberately hit a police van before bursting into flames on the Avenue des Champs-Élysées in central Paris, police officials say.

The driver died in the incident. Police found a Kalashnikov rifle, handguns and gas bottles in the car.'

Surely the car didn't deliberately do anything, the driver of that car however...
Another terrorist attack? The recent escalating in the frequency and the deadliness of these attacks is not coincidence. War has been declared whether we in the West can accept that or not.

Labour Brexit Chaos: Starmer Backs Staying in Customs Union per Guido Fawkes

Guido Fawkes reports

'Last week Corbyn and McDonnell said Labour policy was to leave the single market. Today on Marr their Shadow Brexit Secretary Sir Keir Starmer suggested Britain should stay inside in some way. Corbyn and McDonnell have backed leaving the customs union. Today Starmer said Britain should stay in. Is Labour's Brexit spokesman freelancing? Labour have been in complete chaos on Brexit all week.'

Not surprisingly the BBC are not reporting on this policy chaos. After all the BBC's role is to get a Labour government elected and anything that might stop that happening is to be avoided. Imagine that a top Conservative politician said something that was at odds with government policy, the BBC would be headlining this and screeching about Conservative splits.

Once you realise that the BBC is institutionally pro EU and pro the Labour Party their coverage of British politics makes much more sense.

Democrats Warn Trump Congress Will 'Begin Impeachment Proceedings' If He Fires Mueller, Rosenstein

"And if President Trump were to fire Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein, and then [get] special counsel Mueller fired, I believe Congress would begin impeachment proceedings."'

Presumably he means that 'All Americans, regardless of party, agree on the fundamental principle that no one is above the law, apart from Hillary Clinton'

Israeli policewoman stabbed to death in Jerusalem per BBC News

This rather blind report by the institutionally anti Israel BBC misses much information. It does manage to inform that Israel had lifted travel restrictions on the Palestinians because it was Ramadan. It doesn't inform, for balance, that when Jerusalem was partly occupied by Jordan between 1948 & 1967, Jews weren't allowed anywhere near the site of the Temples. Nor that even now under Israeli control, Muslims keep Jews off of the holiest site in Judaism less the site be despoiled by the presence of praying Jews.

Also missing from the report is the Palestinian response to the attacks.

The Islamic State used its Amaq news agency to claim that "soldiers of the caliphate" attacked a "gathering of Jews."

Islamic Palestinian factions praised the combined attack, with an Islamic Jihad spokesman Dahoud Shihab saying in a statement released immediately after the terrorist event that "The martyr's blood that was spilled at the gates of the al-Aqsa Mosque is a clear message that the intifada continues and that the Palestinian people will not give up. " 

Shihab praised "the pure martyrs who were killed while fasting," and noted that the attack in Jerusalem "is proof that Jerusalem is the land of the jihad. Praise be to the pure martyrs who rose up to defend the purity and sanctity of the blessed land while screaming in the faces of all those who seek normalization."

Hamas also praised the attack in Jerusalem. Hazem Qassem, one of Hamas' spokesmen, said in a special statement that the attack was additional proof "that our Palestinian nation continues its revolution against the criminal occupation and that the intifada will continue until we achieve full freedom."According to him, the death of the three terrorists "is proof that the occupation is the true face of terror, terror against which the Palestinian nation is exercising its right to defend itself and its holy places."

The Abou Ali Mustafa Brigades, the military arm of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, also praised the attack and called the carnage "a natural response to the crimes of the continuing occupation against our people.""The act sends a clear message to the leaders of the occupation that the opposition and the intifada continue and are revitalized and we haven't been broken despite all the steps and tools of criminal oppression," the statement added.  The terrorist organization called for the Palestinian people "to continue the heroic attacks that spill the blood of the occupation and to continue supporting the resistance."Israeli "occupation" refers to Israel's presence in the West Bank, home to historic Jewish communities like Hebron and Beit El, as well as Israel's control over eastern Jerusalem, which contains the Temple Mount and Western

Meanwhile those alleged moderates of Fatah, led by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, slammed what it called "the killing of three young Palestinians by the forces of the Israel occupation in East Jerusalem.

"Fatah was referring to the three terrorists who were eliminated in the middle of carrying out their murderous assault against Israelis.The statement, published by the movement in the official WAFA Palestinian news agency, added that the deaths of the three attackers represents "the continuation of Israeli policies of escalation and is proof that the Israeli occupation government is continuing its  policies.

Thanks to Breitbart for much of the above.

The BBC’s entrenched bias against Israel, when did it start?

This Is the BBC biased piece is a must read if, like me, you realise that the BBC is institutionally anti Israel. The article looks at when this anti Israel bias began, do read it all but here are two examples that pre-date my experience of this anti Israel sentiment.

'But it was the BBC's Keith Kyle (1925-2007) who, thumbing his nose at the terms of his employer's Charter, provided CAABU with its biggest boost from that quarter.  Kyle seems to have been the first BBC broadcaster to flout the neutrality incumbent upon the BBC when, during the tension leading up to the Six Day War, he declared that

"fundamentally in this dispute the Arabs are completely in the right.  There can be no question about this at all." 

These words were also printed in the 1 June 1967 issue of The Listener, a BBC publication.


One of the worst examples of Kyle's pro-Arab stance concerned the bungled hijacking attempt (with innocent casualties) by PFLP terrorists of an El Al aircraft at Zurich Airport in February 1969.  He had learned of the plan from Arab contacts in Damascus, but had not disclosed the information

"to avoid Israeli retaliation against it".  

In a subsequent attempt to prevent him visiting Israel there were threats of him being prosecuted as "an accessory before the fact" if he set foot there"

Keith Kyle then, Jeremy Bowen now - the BBC hasn't really changed.

Man held by police outside Parliament per BBC News

Interesting how this BBC report on the man arrested outside Parliament is very keen to say that terrorism has not been suggested as a motive.

Also note the picture that the BBC choose of the arrested individual shows him from behind and not in close up. There are better photos available, Guido Fawkes has a clear front on photo on his site. Ask yourself why the BBC might choose not to use that photo.

BBC bias whether by commission or omission is still bias.

The Left’s Jewish Problem: Jeremy Corbyn, Israel and Anti‑Semitism per Nick Cohen's review of a new book on the matter in The Guardian

The Labour Party has a real problem with antisemitism, of that there's little doubt.

Do read Nick Cohen in The Guardian, here's an extract:

'... Labour has had to suspend 18 members, including one MP and a former mayor of London, because of their allegedly racist displays. Everywhere, "Zionist" and "Zio" are used to define Jews, and non-Jews who question left orthodoxy, as "the other": barely human monsters, who must be cast from the bounds of leftish society. The leader of the Labour party has defended supporters of every variety of ancient prejudice: the Palestinian activist who revived the medieval libel that Jews used the blood of Christian children to make bread; the Anglican vicar who promoted the views of modern neo-Nazis that the Jewish conspiracy was now so malign and supernaturally powerful it was responsible for 9/11.

After reviving old prejudices, Labour members adopt new ones just for fun. Jews were the chief financiers of the slave trade, they say as they repeat a fantasy promoted by the US race-huckster Louis Farrakhan. Jews collaborated with Hitler, they continue as they repeat the fantasies of 20th-century Marxist‑Leninists.

To get a bearing, imagine that Theresa May and leading members of the cabinet had endorsed the supporters and ideology of the Ku Klux Klan or Britain First, and then rewarded the chairwoman of a supposedly independent inquiry into rightwing racism with a peerage.'

More antisemitism and equivocation about antisemitism in the Labour Party and its propaganda arm the BBC.

Sweden: Migrant Cries 'Racism' When Woman in Hijab Asked to Show Train Ticket; Attacks Passengers with Knife

This Breitbart report raises many questions.

Here's the start of the report:

'An Iraqi man travelling from Stockholm to Hallsberg by train launched a brutal attack on passengers after a Muslim woman was asked to show her ticket, accusing them all of racism.

Karim Alaa Hussain, 25, became infuriated when the unnamed woman, who was wearing a veil, was asked to show her rail ticket by a female conductor.

The Muslim woman complained she had already been asked to show her ticket once before, although eyewitnesses say the conductor was "polite and correct".

Hussain took a different view, according to a report by Fria Tider, corroborated by court documents seen by Breitbart

Hussain sprang to his feet and demanded to know why the conductor had asked to see the woman's ticket, refusing to accept her explanation that she was "only doing her job" and he became "extremely intimidating".

Other passengers intervened to try and calm him down, but this only increased his anger. He accused them of racism, threatening one of the men in particular and striking him in the face.

Alarmed, Hussain's victim wrestled him to the floor – but the Iraqi managed to break free and produced a long kitchen knife, stabbing the man four times in the side and back and inflicting critical internal wounds.'

Where did he produce the long kitchen knife from? Why was he carrying such a weapon? Do many Arabs living in Europe also carry such weapons? If so, will our governments do anything to try to stop this and protect their citizens?

Congressional Shooter Has History of Violence, Supporting Liberal Causes which is probably why the BBC have lost interest in reporting on this story

The news about the Congressional Shooter keeps pouring in:

'James T. Hodgkinson, the Illinois man identified as the would-be killer who wounded several at a practice session of the Congressional Republican baseball team, had a history of violence, supporting progressive causes, and voting for Democrats at least as far back as the year 2002.

According to the Belleville News-Democrat, a paper from the St. Louis area community in which Hodgkinson lived, the shooter has been identified with particularly progressive and liberal causes. He even worked as a volunteer on the presidential campaign of self-professed socialist Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders. The suspect's Twitter feed is also filled with tweets on liberal politics.The paper reported that Hodgkinson belonged to a Facebook group called "Terminate the Republican Party."The shooter's Facebook page was alsolinked to a long list of far left-wing groups and pages, including, "Expose Republican Fraud," "Liberal Democratic Socialist Party," "Boycott The Republican Party," "I Hate Donald Trump," "Healthcare & Education Berners United to Resist Trump," among others.'

More here at Breitbart but not on the BBC where many they share some, or many, of his views and where lefty shoots Republican is not something to raise ire against.

The BBC report:

'Despite being an oil-rich country, Venezuela is facing record levels of child malnutrition as it experiences severe shortages of food and an inflation rate of over 700%.

The Venezuelan Health Ministry says child mortality has also jumped 30% in the last year. The BBC's Vladimir Hernandez met some of the families struggling to cope.'

Any mention of why Venezuela is in such economic trouble? Any linking of their economic problems to the sort of Marxist economics that Jeremy Corbyn and John McDonnell believe in?

This is the BBC so somehow I doubt it.

Meanwhile, maybe sadly, my suspicions have been aroused.

Steve Scalise: Republican House whip shot and wounded per BBC News who have the detail to put it in perspective

This BBC report gives us some background on Steve Scalise, he's a Republican and therefore spot number three:

' Who is Steve Scalise?

House Majority Whip, the number three Republican in Congress, responsible for vote gathering

Elected to Congress is 2008 having previously served in the Louisiana state legislature

He apologised for speaking to a white supremacist group during a campaign event in 2002

Former leader of the conservative Republican Study Group, which clashed frequently with former Speaker of the House John Boehner

He married his wife Jennifer in 2005 and has two young children. They live in Jefferson, Louisiana'

If he had been a Democrat politician who had spoken to a BLM meeting before a riot the BBC would have kept quiet, out of respect. However republicans are always fair game and if a right of centre politician can be linked to racism maybe they all can be.  The BBC never stop pushing their agenda.

Protesting Labour MPs Ignored Gordon and Ed's DUP Dealings per Guido Fawkes

Guido Fawkes further exposes hypocrisy in the Labour Party over their manufactured outrage about the Conservative pact with the DUP.

'Labour MPs held up "Drop the DUP Deal"posters outside parliament yesterday, protesting their stance on gay rights. Did they protest when Gordon Brown tried to do a dealwith the DUP in 2010, or Ed Miliband in 2015. '

Labour hypocrisy, colour me shocked.

That the BBC have nothing to say about this manufactured outrage is equally not surprising, the BBC being little better than the propaganda arm of the Labour Party.
