|An image from the fanatically party-political and pro-Corbyn blog, Another Angry Voice. Much has been made of the viciousness and nastiness of many Corbyn supporters. (Mainly people who weren't members or even supporters of the Labour Party until Corbyn was made leader.) This blog is the Corbynite equivalent of the Nazi's Der Stürmer.|
This is the latest British leftwing sport: tying literally all Islamic extremism and terror (including ISIS and the attacks in England) to Saudi Arabia. Now why is this the case and why is it such a recent phenomenon in leftwing circles? Again, for party-political reasons; not for a genuine antipathy towards Islamic terror or Saudi Arabia. More concretely, the Corbynite Left decided to make a big deal about the Government's close relations to Saudi Arabia during Jeremy Corbyn's election campaign. (These relations are no closer today than they were during any other previous British government.) Thus, to the Left, this isn't at all about Islam or Saudi Arabia. It's actually all about the Tories.
