Bashing Jeremy Corbyn

by Steven Lendman

British Prime Minister David Cameron called Corbyn a threat to national security. More on what he said below.

For the first time in decades, British politics got interesting. Whether Corbyn’s astonishing rise from longtime backbencher to near-overnight Labour party leadership makes a difference remains to be seen.

One man with perhaps a handful of party supporters trying to change an entrenched system run by powerful monied interests is a daunting task and then some.

Blairites, Thatcherites and media scoundrels oppose him. Labour party supporters are tagged with the pejorative “Corbynista.” “Corbynism” is called isolationist and anti-British.A hostile London Observer editorial denigrated him, claiming undefined “evidence to suggest voters will resoundingly reject Corbynism in its current form if he makes it to the next election.”Observer editors claim “lacklustre campaigns of the other candidates” paved his way to victory.

Blairism represented by Liz Kendall was resoundingly rejected – getting an embarrassing low 5% support.Corbyn’s leadership represents “the greatest challenge the Labour party has ever faced,” claimed Observer editors.

They’re right saying he’s yet to prove he can change anything – given entrenched monied interests running things unchallenged in all Western societies and most others at the expense of everyone else.

If Corbyn can shake things up a little, perhaps there’s eventual hope for driving a stake through the heart of Thatcherism and Blairism – for sure no time soon.

British Prime Minister David Cameron is an unindicted war criminal – complicit with Obama’s imperial agenda, threatening world peace.

Corbyn wants humanity saved from the scourge of endless wars. Who’s the real threat to British and global security? For sure not a peace and stability advocate, provided his actions as Labour party leader don’t stray from his high-minded rhetoric.

The whole civilized world hopes he’s the real thing. War-mongering criminals running Western countries and Israel deplore him. So far, no congratulatory phone call from Obama – or likeminded rogue leaders.

During his London visit last week, Netanyahu snubbed him – deploring his forthright support for Palestinian rights, including vocal opposition last summer to Israeli naked aggression on Gaza.

Cameron’s twitter comment was duplicitous and then some, saying “(t)he Labour party is now a threat to our national security, our economic security and your family’s security.”

Judge for yourself. Corbyn chairs Britain’s Stop the War Coalition. He’s for nuclear disarmament and against US-led NATO’s killing machine.

He wants force-fed austerity ended, harming ordinary Brits to enrich wealthy ones more than ever, as well as reversing welfare cuts to help people most in need.

He urges quantitative easing for ordinary people. Money injected responsibly into economies create growth and jobs. When consumers have money, they spend it. A virtuous circle of prosperity is possible. Western policies benefit monied interests exclusively.

  1. The election of Corbyn as Labour leader is the most exciting change in British politics for three decades. It will mean a real debate on issues ranging from “austerity” to fracking to “humanitarian bombing” – Corbyn is staunchly opposed to all of these. However, the opposition coming both from the media as well as those inside his own party will be enormous. New Labour will not roll over and die easily, but we can help. For those of us in Britain who want to see a real change in politics, the opportunity now presents itself and we should all get solidly behind Corbyn. I, for one, have joined the Labour Party and I very much encourage others to follow suit.

  2. Now, if the Russian president had called an opposition leader a threat to national security, you know we’d never hear the end of the whining from the Western media.

    • Or, say, if a really liberal left wing candidate here in this country called the Neocons or the Likudniks a “threat to national security”, they would probably have locked him up for being a threat to the “Homeland” and it’s “national interests”

  3. The rampant hysteria coming from Conservative HQ reminds me of this comedy skit of a Tory party political broadcast from the 1940s:
