“BEWARE THE RISE OF THE FAR RIGHT”

By Pete Moore On May 1st, 2019

Happy Beltane

The Shadow Chancellor spent the day in Trafalgar Square on some commie ritual. This is him, seated second right, wearing a blood red tie –

You’ll see Lenin, Stalin and Mao behind him. That’s quite a death toll. In fact it’s most of the 100 million or so murdered by communists in that mural alone. But we’re supposed to “beware the rise of the far Right” which “peddles hate”.

Don’t make me laugh.

  1. How old’s the picture Pete?

  2. About the five hours old.

  3. Ouch

  4. Is it?

    Some bloke said it on Twitter so it must be true:

  5. Disregard that last comment. It’s the wrong image.

  6. To be fair the banner beside McDonnell in the 2017 picture is a Unite banner. It isn’t present in the picture Pete has put up. He was also still the Shadow Chancellor in 2017 so I don’t know how much of a defence that is.

    He also gave an interview today to ITV (further down the story):

    He seems to be standing in front of the same structure. So most likely the picture is from today.

  7. Sorry. Didn’t see your other comment Paul.

  8. It’s no defence Seamus. That’s why I said to disregard it.

  9. If they’re different pictures, and they seem to be, it’s even worse. It means the organisers turn up with the same slogans on the same banners and put them up in exactly the same arrangement year after dreary year.

  10. So is it reasonable to state that McDonnell is endorsing Mao and ‘Uncle Joe’ Stalin? It’s not as though he can’t see their images and the hammers and sickles all around. Surely it’s a resignation matter – unless omelette/eggs is still a serious position in McDonnell’s mind……?

    Already famous throughout Europe, this text opened archives in the former Soviet bloc to reveal the actual, practical accomplishments of Communism around the world: terror, torture, famine, mass deportations, and massacres. astonishing in the sheer detail it amasses, the book is the first comprehensive attempt to catalogue and analyze the crimes of Communism over 70 years.

  11. I do not know what everyone is complaining about ? According to Deane Abbot MP that 100 million dead people is a price worth paying. So shut up ! Because when it comes to numbers, Deane knows her s#!t.

    /sarc

  12. I don’t know how credible it is to criticise someone standing in front of banners whose ideology caused mass murder while the national government is aiding and supporting mass murder on a smaller scale in Yemen?

  13. Just because the communist dictators were evil doesn’t mean the far right doesn’t also peddle hate.

  14. Just because the communist dictators were evil doesn’t mean the far right doesn’t also peddle hate.

    Mahons

    Nice bit of ‘Deflection Technique’ there mate 😉 When you can’t deny the truth, just point out that the other kinds stole cookies from the jar, but were never caught.

    Hatred for those monsters and those that worship them is rational. To seek to justify and / or to marginalise and try to brush under the carpet the scale of their horrors ins’t.

  15. Speaking of political monstrosities…you all need to check out the TUV’s party election broadcast for the local elections.

    I nearly passed out with the laughter.

  16. Just because the communist dictators were evil doesn’t mean the far right doesn’t also peddle hate.

    “Murdering 100 million people is just like wanting less immigration.”

  17. Mark B – I’ve never had a problem denouncing communist dictators and the things they’be done. The postwo itself strive for the defection. Peraps you are unaware that it’s author has written that he wished Germany won WW2 and regularly defends ATW’s Nazis leader.

  18. Pete – murdering is like murdering people.

  19. I don’t think that there’s any ‘deflection’ at all there Mark. Mahons is stating how both left and right ideaologies are responsible for mass murder. It’s also interesting that your comment follows Mahons in the sense that your previous comment follows that of an unashamed admirer of those responsible for the genocide, persecution and death of millions. Much of it based on race and ethnicity.

    Indeed, the author of the post criticises McDonell for standing in front of banners of those whose ideaology have caused the death of millions whilst at the same time exalting the British Empire , where indigenous subjugation and foreign economic policy alone also caused the deaths of millions.

  20. Paul McMahon –

    English is your native tongue (lucky you). So you should see that Mahons compared communist dictators of the past, responsible for murdering 100 million people (“communist dictators were evil”) with the right wing of today (“doesn’t mean the far right doesn’t also peddle hate”)

    He is equating the greatest evil ever known with a liking for less immigration, in effect.

  21. English is your native tongue Pete so perhaps a remedial reading class is in order?

    Just because the communist dictators were evil doesn’t mean the far right doesn’t also peddle hate.

    I see no qualification with the right wing of today?. However, to my own point:

    Indeed, the author of the post criticises McDonell for standing in front of banners of those whose ideaology have caused the death of millions whilst at the same time exalting the British Empire , where indigenous subjugation and foreign economic policy alone also caused the deaths of millions

    The brass necked, shameless, mendacious hypocrisy that perfidious Pete’s become infamous for.

  22. Pete – you are just making things up.
