Why the U.K. establishment is terrified of Jeremy Corbyn


In Britain, you have thousands of people taking
to the streets, particularly around the climate crisis, not only when President Trump made
that state visit to London, but you have Extinction Rebellion. Yeah. That has been huge, very well-organized, unpredictable. Attempts to delegitimize it have failed because
the courts have ruled that the police have no right to ban these demonstrations, which
is one of the few legal victories a movement has won in this country in recent years. So that is happening here. And, you know, let’s hope it ties in with
the election campaign. I think the figures are that over a million
people have registered between the ages of 18 and 34. They’ve kept to the date, they’ve registered. So I hope that that helps. It would be amazing. Also, Amy, if Corbyn wins and begins to implement
the program, it will have a big effect globally. If it can be done in Britain, why can’t
it be done in France? Why can’t it be done in the United States? Why can’t it be done in country X or Y or
Z? It will show that it is possible to reverse
all the damage inflicted by the neoliberal system, its economic policies, its wars, et
cetera. Corbyn would be the first prime minister of
this country who has been an anti-war activist and president of the Stop the War campaign
for some years. So that is one reason the right is so upset
and the establishment has been trying to destabilize him and this absurd, absurd accusation of
him being anti-Semitic has been thrown into the ring by right-wing and liberal Zionists,
which has unfortunately had an impact. But you know, people are fighting back, including
large numbers of Jewish activists from Jewish Voices for Labor. But they’ve hurled every possible charge
you can imagine at him. He’s a terrorist. He’s an anti-Semite. He’s a communist. He’s going to be like Stalin. You cannot imagine it outside this country,
what they’ve thrown at him. And he’s come back fighting. Well, this is probably his last fight politically
to win this election, and let’s hope he succeeds.

  1. Man come on Britz! Get Jeremy Corbyn in there so we stop these worldwide right wing fascist policies. Shout out from Fort Worth TX.

  2. The very fact that the establishment, the wealth hoarders and all the puppet politicians are fearing Jeremy Corbyn…. should be enough of a reason for the majority of citizens to vote for him. Time to kick the trash to the curb!!!

  3. Stop all the illegal wars, stop the legalised mass murder. Vote Labour, Jeremy Corbyn for Prime Minister. Join 'Stop The War Coalition', say NO to N.A.T.O.!

  4. The late Australian broadcaster/writer Clive James commented on Corbyn thus: "I admire the way his principles are uninhibited by reason."

  5. It is important to remember that a great deal of the press is London centric, Xenophobic and right wing.
    They think of other areas of Britain as the 'provences'.
    Not of any importance.
