Anti-Semitism’s Deep Roots in the British Labour Movement

1,753 words

“Their agenda is to obtain the conquest of the gentile world!”—Mariatu Conteh, Labour Party activist

There is a long and healthy tradition of skepticism and suspicion about the true motivations and intentions of the organized Jewish community within Britain’s labor movement. Indeed, during English socialism’s formative years, Jews were often equated with exploitative capitalism.

Justice, the paper of the Social Democratic Federation, on the 5th April 1884, read: “Jew money lenders now control every foreign office in Europe” and the same publication on the 25th June 1898 featured an article that argued “It seems to be an open secret that the government of France is too much in the grip of the Jews to take active measures against them as a body.” Robert Blatchford’s The Clarion reporting on the 24th February 1900: “Modern imperialism is really run by half a dozen finance houses, many of them Jewish, to whom politics is a courtier in the game of buying and selling securities and people are convenient pawns.”

It was also frequently alleged during this period that Britain’s Imperialist Wars, particularly the Boer Wars, favored the Jewish interest. The Independent Labour Party publishing in December 1891 opinions like: “Whenever there is trouble in Europe, whenever rumours of war circulate and men’s minds are distraught with fear of change and calamity, you may be sure that a hook-nosed Rothschild is at his games somewhere near the region of disturbances.” Similar views that H.M. Hyndman, the leader of the Social Democratic Federation warned against in Justice on the 25th April 1896 when he spoke of an “Anglo-Hebraic Empire in Africa.” Justice’s sister publication The Clarion claiming in 1903 that Jewish immigrants were “A poison injected into the national veins.” Other contributors going on to say “They were the unsavoury children of the ghetto” and commenting that “their numbers are appalling.”

At a Trade Union Congress in Cardiff in the early 1900s a range of anti-alien resolutions were passed and an Independent Labour Party article entitled: “The Problem of Alien Immigration” was widely promulgated which featured statements such as: “The rich Jew has done his best to besmirch the fair name of England and to corrupt the sweetness of our national life and character.” Even Beatrice Potter, one of the founders of the Fabians wrote: “The love of profit distinct from other forms of money earning is the strongest impelling nature of the Jewish race.” A piece in the Nineteenth Century, Volume XXIV, proclaiming: “They have neither the desire nor the capacity for labour.” With one Bill Tillet writing in the London Evening News in June 1896: “Our leading statesmen do not care to offend the great banking houses or money kings . . . For heaven’s sake, give us back our own countrymen and take us from your motley multitude!” While a gentleman going by the name of Tranter of The Progress Union of Cabinet Makers at the TUC Conference in 1900, supported by John Ward of the Navvies Union, asserted that: “Practically £100,000 of the tax payers money has been spent in trying to secure the gold fields of South Africa for cosmopolitan Jews, most of whom had no patriotism and no country.”

The litany of concerns running on in an essay entitled “Foreign Pauper Immigration” published in A. White’s The Destitute Alien of Great Britain, where it was stated the Jews sought “to strengthen the spirit of discontent and disorder on which the agitators live and batten and which in time they knew would pollute with violence our continental socialism.” An insight complemented by a “A Mile End Socialist” writing to the Jewish Chronicle on the 21st November 1902, “Jew versus gentile will be my battle cry at every election as long as life is spared . . . The Jew has made himself obnoxious through the incarnate instinct of his race to every nation where he has now emigrated. This is an historical fact and beyond controversy.”

Antipathy that was to manifest itself in anti-Jewish riots across the South Wales valley communities of Monmouthshire and Glamorgan, the very heartland of the Labour movement right up to modern times, in late August 1911. Described by Winston Churchill as a “pogrom,” the disturbances started in Tredegar and spread rapidly to Ebbw Vale and Rhymney. With people who were originally described as of the “hooligan class” but were later found to be respectable working people at a hearing at Tredegar Magistrate’s Court in September 1911, indulging in a week-long attack on small-time Jewish capitalists, shopkeepers, pawnbrokers, and landlords, who they believed to be running price-fixing cartels and imposing usury at exorbitant rates.

The Daily News reporting that, “the cry of the mob was one long denunciation of Jews” and the view of the presiding magistrate at Tredegar was that “the first disturbances were no doubt anti-Jewish.” While the chief Constable of Monmouth, who had required the support of detachments from the Worcester Regiment to calm the situation, claimed in his report to the Home Office that there seemed to be a “determination expressed by the inhabitants of Tredegar to get rid of the Jews.”

A bitter period of inter-ethnic strife that is now represented by schmaltzy films like Solomon and Gaenor (1999). A Yiddish and Welsh language co-production starring Iaonn Gruffudd and Nia Roberts, about a Welsh girl who falls in love with a Jewish boy whose family, the Levinskys, are caught up in the troubles. The movie, like the events themselves, showing the strong under-currents running through much of early socialist thinking, which have now, over a century later under Corbyn, resurfaced with similarly strong sentiments. A situation exacerbated by his own deliberate inclusion of a cadre of fundamentalist Muslims and other ethnic groups at all levels within his hard-Left Momentum movement. Leading to the hue and cry from characters like Margaret Hodge, Luciana Berger, Louise Ellman and Ruth Smeeth, who see the decades-long Jewish fiscal and ideological grip on the party by people like David and Ed Miliband, Peter Mandelson, Gerald Kaufman, Lord Levy, Alexander Bernstein, and Robert Gavron, coming under threat.

A concern that carries a kernel of truth, when Labour Party members and activists like Alan Williams are saying: “Check the names of the banks involved in the 2008 crash. They are not helping themselves”; Mohammed Pappu, a Councillor in Tower Hamlets claiming that Britain attacked Syria to “install a Rothschild Bank”; Catherine Love-Madden, Labour Party member from Rochester, pointing out that “Jews are rich, interested in finance and want to control or exploit others”; ardent Corbynista, David Barron, from Stafford arguing “In terms of stopping being taken over, you are too late. We’re run at the highest levels by Jews”; David Cooper, a party supporter in Eastwood in Nottingham stressing “the Jew is worse than Black Death . . . We need to eliminate this infection”; and David Ray, a veteran party member from Leicester, who hits the nail on the head when he writes “Zionists are basically psychopaths and should be treated as such.” Adding in an e-mail “that Britain’s financial struggles in the 1970s had given the Jewish gang power out of all proportion to their representation as a proportion of the population” and that “Kinnock sucked up to them because of the financial incentives and Blair followed on avidly supporting a bunch of Zionist scumbags.”

Unpalatable language perhaps, but no more unpalatable than the fact that over seven hundred parliamentary candidates in the UK including Conservative Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Liberal Democrat Party Leader, Jo Swinson, have all signed up to support the new definition of anti-Semitism, as proposed by the Holocaust Remembrance Alliance, which states:

Antisemitism is a certain perception of Jews, which may be expressed as hatred toward Jews. Rhetorical and physical manifestations of antisemitism are directed toward Jewish or non-Jewish individuals and/or their property, toward Jewish community institutions and religious facilities.

An ambiguous and all-inclusive catch-all definition that gives real credence (especially when there are attempts by some to include condemnation of the ethnic-state of Israel within its appendices) to arguments that it is a contrivance to silence all criticism of Jewish group or individual malfeasance and the ongoing human rights abuses and atrocities of an illegal state founded through the ethnic cleansing, rape, and murder of many thousands of Palestinians and acts of terrorism against British soldiers in 1948.

The whipping up of such hysteria about anti-Semitism in the world’s media bringing to the for accusations previously leveled at the Jewish community in The Protocols of the Elders of Zion and forcing the hand of their placed-men such President Emmanuel Macron of France to say “Jews are and what makes France.” The Rothschild’s rent-boy going on “That for too long many have used the excuse that their obsessive criticism of Israel is not hiding their anti-Semitism . . . Those who attack them, even their graves, are not worthy of the idea we have of France.”

This, only hours before French MPs agreed to equate anti-Zionism with anti-Semitism and set up a new Commissariat to deal with anti-Jewish hate crimes. Interior Minister Christophe Castaner making the over-blown statement after he visited the alleged crime scene of swastikas daubed on Jewish graves in Westhoffen, that “The Republic itself had been desecrated.”

Which takes me back to Mariatu Conteh’s belief at the top of this article and the themes that have informed much of non-Marxist and non-Trotskyite socialist thinking for a century. Notions that have now even been embraced by former Baader-Meinhof and Red Army Faction members like Horst Mahler, who, like most of the 1960s and early 1970s radical West German Left, became increasingly less sympathetic to Israel after the Six-Day War in 1967, and has himself been condemned, in his later right-wing philosophical incarnation, by the far-reaching German Volksverhetzung Law of 2004, relating to Holocaust denial.

A situation that is set to be repeated over and over again all over the developed world with the attempted imposition of legislation like the American Congress’s Anti-Semitism Awareness Act of March 2019, which only confirms that the clue to those who have improper power and influence over the governmental apparatus, the judiciary, the economy, finance, and the news corporations providing information through their controlled outlets, are the very ones you are not under any circumstances, even under pain of imprisonment, allowed to arraign or denounce in any way, shape, or form. The self-censorship of investigative journalists and news black-out surrounding internationally renowned pedophile and sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein and his procuress, Ghislaine Maxwell, having suspected links to Israeli Intelligence speaks volumes and is just the latest example of this criminal fraternity’s machinations to impose their racial will and animus in a globalist-controlled future.

    Some great quotes, but it is deeply saddening to learn that our people have known of this scourge for so long and yet been totally unable to do anything about it.

      Dear Rob,
      You are right but it is the persistence and chutzpah that makes my head-spin. There have been centuries of this ingrained behaviour and its continuation passed from one generation to another is clearly both learnt and biological.

        Dear Dazz,
        I understand your point of view BUT it isn’t all their land. They have stolen it from others and continue to do so with an expansionist policy that underlies their ‘encouragement’ of hostilities in Syria, Lebanon and Iraq – and their militant approach to Iran. I suggest you take a look at the homeland for the Jewish people suggested by Lady Michelle Renouf on her website and her Telling Films productions.

          I’m aware of Renouf’s opinions, but fact is Israel exists now and I care only about their expansion as it effects White people, which currently it does…however prior to a nationalist victory this won’t change, and upon a nationalist victory, White people would be buffoons to get involved in Semitic concerns in the Middle East…White people can start building up their racial vitality by ceasing to care (whether its pathetically genuine or proxy for hating on Jews) about Arabs and Asiatics ‘(same peoples raping our land and children) and for a change focusing entirely on themselves and their interests.

            Dear Dazz,
            I think you misunderstand me. I am only interested in the Palestinian issue in order to point out the double-standards of the Jews and Israel. I would not for a minute want to sacrifice a single one of ‘ours’ to re-take/recapture sand hills for the middle-eastern Arab diaspora (unless there was a direct benefit for white western civilization). We look after number one (meaning white countries) at all times – but that does mean kicking over the termite nest we (the British) help create in 48. Otherwise that particular cesspit (unless isolated and vacuum sealed) will continue to cause us no end of problems.

    Very similar ideas inspired some early Australian socialists.'s%20kingdom%20of%20shylock.html

    Frank Anstey’s ‘Kingdom of Shylock’ addresses what he refers to as the Money Power. The Money Power (effectively, the power to create new money and spend it into existence) remains the basis for capitalism.

      The Australian Labor movement was what the New Right is today. Same for other Labour movements. Unfortunately it does not take much for the Money Power to buy off Left-wing movements, as Spengler pointed out.

    Why did Tony Blair insist on joining GW Bush’s war in Iraq in 2003? I would have assumed that Israel was pulling the strings since they wanted Saddam Hussein removed from power. Yet, this article now makes me question that.
    It couldn’t have been for the oil as British oil companies didn’t benefit from the war. And a Labour politician shouldn’t be on their side anyway. And the Labour certainly didn’t want the war either.
    Blair’s cheerleading so for the 2003 Iraq War has never made any sense to me.

    • Fenek Solere
      Posted December 12, 2019 at 10:58 am | Permalink

      Dear Lothrop,
      Blair was creating ‘New Labour’ – under the influence of the key Semites like Lord Levy who he had the audacity to appoint as the British intermediary between the Palestinians and Israel (can you imagine that level of insensitivity/bias?) and Peter Mandelson (who was removed from government office for inappropriate behaviour on two occasions but was later appointed to a senior position with the EU).

      The original Labour Party was far more patriotic and representative of the white working class. Blair ditched such loyalty in favour of importing millions of ‘new voters’ using his Secretary for Immigration, Barbara Roche, another regular attendee at the synagogue.

      Corbyn’s anti-Semitism is the result of his opposition to capitalism and the Jew’s ideological and financial stranglehold of the Labour Party coupled with trying to secure his own ‘power-base’ within the Labour movement by throwing open the doors to hundreds and thousands of new Muslim members.

      It’s a sea change in the Labor party I think, which has occurred over the ensuing decade and a half. It’s analogous to the way Hillary Clinton and virtually all the Democratic Party bigwigs were 300% behind the war in 2002, but now AOC and Gabbard and the new crowd are pro Palestinian and “anti Semitic.” Pro Russia

      I saw a really good movie on the Iraq war called Official Secrets, a true story about how a whistleblower revealed the British and US were blackmailing UN members to support the war. Weird how no one has ever heard of it! The more things change…

      Something that struck me was that the protagonist had a Muslim husband and that appears to have been her motivation. These “Labour” people are in line with Muslims. Why can’t anyone act in the interest of native, white British and Americans?

      Dear Kerry,
      I am a great admirer of your texts and have them all sitting on my bookshelf. Thank you for taking interest in my article. Regarding Beatrice Potter – she changed her name to Webb when she married Sydney Webb – her maiden name was Potter. Though, you are right, she is far better known by the married name, Webb.
      Best Wishes and please do keep up all your good work, particularly on Yockey!!!

        Thanks. Unless I had forgotten, I did not realise Beatrice Potter was Webb. Ironically, the London School of Economics founded by the Webbs was funded by Rothschild and Sir Ernest Cassel (a chair of business being named after him at LSE).

    It seems that Labour’s demographic gamble that it could throw Britain’s Jews under the bus while courting the much larger Muslim vote did not pay off.

    Sectarian issues do not fascinate the Man on The Clapham Omnibus, but the visible intrusion of Islam into the fabric of everyday life is alarming otherwise mild Britons.

    Jews indeed are something of a rarity in many parts of the UK and when encountered usually assimilated and well-educated: if religious their faith is unobtrusive. This contrasts with an apparent ubiquity of bearded Islamic fanatics in sufficient numbers to generate ‘lone wolf’ attacks with depressing regularity.

    Whatever one’s views on the causes of this phenomenon, it is with the symptoms that a nationalist movement needs to commence, for there is the place where the immigration-boosters’ claims visibly fall apart.

    • Fenek Solere
      Posted December 13, 2019 at 3:03 pm | Permalink

      Dear Vehmgericht,
      Point accepted but the cause must be dealt with – otherwise the symptoms will continue to persist – Johnson played the Thatcher immigration card just days before the polls – let’s see if he fulfills his promise on that one issue – she certainly did not – but then she was merely a puppet to the Finchley Synagogue set, too!

    Yes, I deduct from this piece that there are many instances of healthy antagonism against the jews in the Labour movement. As we have within Christianity.
    But they are both doomed, all the time their bibles (Das Kapital and The Bible) are semitic in origin and thought, and hence sooner or later are bound to be fatal poison.

    • Fenek Solere
      Posted December 15, 2019 at 12:22 pm | Permalink

      Dear Bjorn,
      The key is that the Labour/socialist movement in the UK has been ‘owned’ by Yahweh’s brood for decades – having now faced some kind of opposition/push back within ‘their vehicle’ – they have once again changed ponies (sorry for the mixed metaphor) and now ride with the Conservative Party openly once again (not that they ever truly left them). The point of the article is to point out that conscious or unconscious instinctual knowledge of what these people are up to is innate and goes beyond class/ideological lines – it is a sign of tremendous hope that there has been, even if only temporarily, a blip in their Matrix of Power – and that means they are fallible and our message can get through.

        Dear Fenek
        Thank for taking the time to reply, and I agree with you – there are tremendous hope when a party like Labour at times resurface for a breath of fresh air in this question.
        I myself do a bit of translation work (translating from English) for a local bloke who is old school communist (!!). He is completely off wack on certain political issues, but quite a few of these commies have a dedication for truth in certain areas, and the last piece I translated for him was from unzreview and very red-pilled on the jew question.
        The lefties, like those in the Labour party, do have their moments, as you so eloquently point out in this article.

          The self-evident becomes so obvious even to the politically blind or ‘straight-jacketed’ – the truth is there is always hope and it is our duty to link-up each and every one we can in order to root-out the evil that afflicts one and all – regardless of class, gender, educational attainment etc etc

    America has what sounds to be the same problem. jews infiltrating, co-opting and corrupting an institution/political party/movement. Here in America, “conservatism” is the only real genuine pro-American political movement. It represents what Whites want America to be; namely what it was originally designed to be … a nation by/for/serving White people.

    Today, and since the late 1970s, “conservatism” has been turned into each/every agenda of the neo-conservatives. These are nothing more than ex-Trotskyite jews. They keep the conservative movement focused on the foreign policy goal of propping up the bandit/welfare state of Israel, and keeping nations under the thumb of ((( international banking ))) so those jews can rake off the wealth of nations. This is what is the real agenda of the USA against Maduro in Venezuela and now Bolivia.

    Domestically, the neo-cons want unbridled 3rd world influx into America and low tariffs for manufactures. Both of which increase the profit margins for corporate America. The majority stock holders in Corporate America are ((( Wall Str. ))) mutual/hedge funds. All run by or at least tolerated by jews. All of which increase the income/money stream into ((( int’l banking ))) coffers.

    So, American domestic and foreign policy is run by and for the interests of jews. International jews. There are no jewish Americans or American jews; just jews in America. Same in Britain since the time of Cromwell. Same in Tsarist Russia. Same in Weimar and Hohenzollern Germany. Until Whites wake up to the truth about jews, jews will make short work of the White.
