Businessman, Alan Sugar, lashed out against Jeremy Corbyn today by retweeting an image which shows the Labour leader in a car with Adolf Hitler.
The caption of the image read “When you’re pictured at Nuremberg and claim you thought you were going to a car rally”.
The city of Nuremberg was host to Nazi propaganda events after Hitler’s rise to power.
Mr Sugar is strongly against Brexit, but his recent tweet seems to show he is also against the Labour party.
Mr Corbyn has been embroiled in a row over anti-Semitism within the Labour party after a Facebook comment surfaced in which he had appeared to defend a mural depicting a group of Jewish financiers and white businessmen playing a Monopoly-style game on a board balanced on the backs of people.
Mr Corbyn said: “I sincerely regret that I did not look more closely at the image I was commenting on, the contents of which are deeply disturbing and anti-Semitic.”
Mr McDonnell, the shadow chancellor, intervened, saying: “People have contacted me about Alan Sugar’s tweet. I just make this appeal to him. Please delete and disown it.
“We all desperately need to bring people together now. We can hold strong views about each other’s politics but now is the time to learn from each other and unite people.”
Jeremy Corbyn EXPOSED as a member of a private Facebook Group which posted anti-Semitic content
It’s been revealed that up until 2015 Jeremy Corbyn was a member of a Facebook group which posted anti-Semitic content and conspiracy theories.
Jeremy Corbyn was a member of a private Facebook group which some members regularly posted anti-Jewish content.
Mr Corbyn can be seen commenting on posts which clearly have anti-Semitic comments, however, he chose not to speak out against these comments made my fellow group members.
“Comments posted on the group include conspiracy theories about the Rothschild family, Israel’s supposed involvement in the 9/11 attacks, and links to material produced by neo-Nazi groups.
One of the most shocking posts included an image of a pig with ‘Israel Lobby’ written on its side, with four politicians suckling from it.”
A spokesman for the Labour leader said: “Jeremy and the Labour Party are implacably opposed to all forms of anti-Semitism and will take whatever necessary action to stamp it out in the party.”
“I don’t think anyone is suggesting anything that Jeremy has written in any Facebook group or anywhere else constitutes anti-Semitic comments.
“There were thousands of members of this group. In social media, all sorts of things are posted which often others participating aren’t even aware of.
“It is repugnant if there are anti-Semitic posts – and I gather there are. If they involve anyone to do with the Labour Party then investigation and disciplinary action will be taken.”
Mr Corbyn’s past was exposed by David Collier, in a blog post that can be seen here.
Labour has launched an investigation into Clive Lewis and Chris Williamson who were also members of the group.
Reports suggest that the Labour leader was added to the group by another member and did not voluntarily join. He did on more than one occasion post in the group.
The CAA is in the process of filling a complaint against Labour and Mr Corbyn.
