re: #254 Thanos

You are wrong, look at past focus on other holocaust deniers, including those in Vlaams Belang, Front National, etc. It certainly wouldn’t be ignored here.

I didn’t say that those stories got ignored by us. I said by those promoting the story, and specified journalists. We wouldn’t know who Williamson was if he wasn’t a far-right Catholic priest, but instead a leftist MP or Academic because it wouldn’t be a story.

Again though. Vlaams Belang and Front National get news coverage because they are far right political organizations. If they were transnationalist leftist parties that were also racists, or holocaust deniers, we wouldn’t know who they are.

I’m well aware that antisemitism and racism gets exposed on both sides of the aisle here. However, most of the left-wing seething hatred you will notice comes from Zombie’s photojournalism, other independent outlets, or op-eds and not pulled from Yahoo news, the headlines of major newspapers/wire services.

The larger issue still stands though, that without antisemitic Brits, you don’t get antisemitic British Priests. That there is an issue with antisemitism in the Church is a given in; that there is a problem with antisemitism everywhere else is obfuscated.
