Where did the whole 'the left is actually anti-Semitic' thing come from, it's happening a bit over here in Canada and the US as well (noticeably with bernie but that failed pretty spectacularly for obvious reasons)


(I posted this on the old thread at identically the same time as Guav made this one so repeating myself here:

You may think that (re Bernie) but the current incarnation of the Labour party is busily kicking out many left-wing Jews for 'anti-semitism' aka 'pro basic human rights for Palestinians', especially members of Jewish Voice for Labour ( https://www.jewishvoiceforlabour.org.uk/ ) who are actually Jewish and actually party members, unlike Jewish Labour Movement (defunct until 2015 when strangely Jumbly Crobyns got elected LOTO) who claim to speak for Jews in Labour who do not have to be Jewish nor members of the party.

Can't find it right now but saw something a few days ago that if you are a leftwing Jew you are 31x (IIRC) more likely to be kicked out of the party for anti-semitism (aka not worshipping at the feet of the actions of the government of the state of Israel) than anyone else.

There is no stress. It's a bad song & I don't listen to bad songs, only good songs, like this

I never got the whole "this is hard to avoid" thing. Just never go out without headphones in. Easy. Free advice. Of course, could have left that at "never go out" but that might be a little too Goon.

Get the booster.

We're still in the middle of a worsening Delta surge, and it's going to take *months* for a new booster to be approved - delaying is just exchanging protection against that for an indeterminate period that will include the peak period for Delta for an unknown amount of protection against an unknown level of danger. Even if Omicron is worse than Delta *and* the existing vaccines offer no protection at all against it then it makes no sense to leave yourself vulnerable to Delta for that time.

He cycles places. He cycled from Alaska to Mexico and further into Central and South America. He didn't do it in one go because he goes back to work in Canada planting trees each summer to make money which he then spends on his cycling trips. Nice chill dude.

Check out this awesome Scottish dude, who cycles around Europe/Central Asia with his adorable cat Nala, who he found as a starving kitten on one of his travels and nursed back to help

In the cycles of technology and societal trends vs people finding ways to circumvent them, Twitter doesn't appear to know rhyming slang, so calling someone a berk is fine, but 'oval office' is almost an immediate ban.
