Huh? I did no such thing.

Frankly, my only concern about Mear One's mural is not that the threat 
it poses to the Jews but to the left. I get angry over Corbyn's lack of 
defense, to put it into a sports context, not over his supposedly 
encouraging pogroms. If you really want to understand what anti-Semitism 
can do, go see the movie "A Bag of Marbles" about 2 boys who denied 
being Jewish during the Vichy regime.

My main interest is in building the left. That is why I write criticisms 
of ultraleftism, such as embodied in the "punch a Nazi" tropes or George 
C-M's appearances on the Tucker Carlson show.

I am absolutely in favor of Corbyn becoming the Prime Minister of 
England. Anything that gets in the way has to be moved aside. He has 
surrounded himself with the conspiracy-mongering louts of the Stop the 
War Coalition. They are not acting as the proper antenna he needs to 
ward off these threats. In fact, they serve as blinders.
