The resignation today of British Prime Minister Theresa May has unleashed a wave of antisemitic posts on social media.
‘Syed Umar’ exclaimed “Good riddance Zionist bitch” on Twitter. Notorious antisemite, Gilad Atzmon, who humiliatingly capitulated in a libel case against Campaign Against Antisemitism’s Gideon Falter last year, predictably entered the fray and tweeted: “British Jews thank Theresa Je Suis Juif for being a dedicated Sabbos Goy [sic] and destroying Britain’s future for Israel.”
‘Melville Debyuss’ tweeted a claim that Theresa May’s departure heralded the end of the “greedy corrupt lying cheating racist Zionist terrorist war criminal Tories”, adding that he “loves” Jeremy Corbyn. In reference to the horrendous fires that have blazed in Israel, another Twitter user opined: “Israel is in flames and Theresa May is going to step down as PM??? it really is a month of blessings”.
A user named ‘Jay’ waded into a Twitter thread about her resignation: “Shuttup man, Israel is doing to the Palestinians what the Germans did to the Jews. Enough said.”
Over on Facebook, ‘Jefferson Webster’ warned: users wrote: “As one Zionist psychopathe [sic] leaves, another will take over, its [sic] all pantomine [sic] and theratre….! [sic]”
Another conspiratorial post by ‘Robert Broad’ added: “She does what she is told to do so she can achieve considerable wealth from her masters the zionist banksters we call the central bank or better the Bank of England which has nothing to do with England, is resident in a foreign country. It doesn’t even need to present accounts to the inland revenue and it is privately owned by 12 zionist families.”
The hatred was not reserved to the political left. ‘Sean Young’ of Tek Plastering Building Services claimed: “Israel is removing the right in politics, Theresa May is a Zionist and is doing her job to perfection in the destruction of those who wish to conserve the nation”
