Far-left propaganda website Skwawkbox has been caught calling an appalling article about the “Jewish war against Corbyn” both “pertinent and frightening”.
The article, entitled “The Jewish ‘war against Corbyn’ risks bringing real antisemitism to Britain”, accused the Jewish community of exaggerating antisemitism in the Labour Party and thereby putting Jews at risk of reprisals.
Rather than decrying this attempt to smear the Jewish community, Skwawkbox retweeted the article, calling it “Pertinent and frightening”. Skwawkbox later deleted the retweet, offering no apology, instead merely commenting: “Retweeted a tweet earlier by a Jewish author, without endorsement and with the original title unchanged, commenting that it was frightening in the current circumstances. That tweet caused offence, which was not its intent and it has been deleted”.
Skwawkbox did not take long to return to accusing Jews of exaggerating antisemitism for political gain, retweeting a Twitter user who called for the BBC to be shut down for broadcasting an interview with a British Jewish family which is afraid for its future due to the ascent of Jeremy Corbyn.
Nope, you said Pertinent, as in relevant or applicable to a particular matter
