Labour MP retweets video of Israeli soldiers beating up Palestinian kids for fun … in Guatemala?
This is difficult to say, but Speaker Nancy Pelosi almost seems like a normal adult compared to the rest of the clown show that is the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives. She at least tried to pass a resolution denouncing the anti-Semitic tropes being thrown around repeatedly by Rep. Ilhan Omar, and as we reported, she recently met with U.K. Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn and allegedly brought up “the necessity of forcefully confronting anti-Semitism.”
If true, good for her, but she must know that any calls for the Labour Party to tone down its anti-Semitism are going nowhere. On Monday, Labour MP Grahame Morris retweeted a video of Israeli soldiers beating up Palestinian children “for the fun of it.”
Marvellous, absolutely marvellous the Israeli Army, the best financed, best trained, best equipped army in the world caught on camera beating up Palestinian children for the fun of it. May God forgive them. What would Jim Royle say on an Easter Monday. https://t.co/fxtiKl8myx

That’s odd … the original tweet has been deleted. Maybe because it was fake:
The only marvelous thing here are your lies.
These are not IDF soldiers.
Apologies would be in order. https://t.co/ImIY9nD8lX

Oops! That video’s from Guatemala. Morris is terribly sorry and will now get back to work finding a real video to post.
Think you've got this one wrong Graeme…

TY – you are right and many apologies for my honest mistake there are lots of verifiable documented examples of the IDF abusing Palestinian child prisoners I have seen for myself in Court in the West Bank – but am harvesting and documenting a few more of my trolls yet thanks.

Are you going to post more fake films to try and back up your #LabourAntisemitism..???

Just a normal day in Corbyn’s Labour Party: MP evokes antisemitic blood libel of Israeli soldiers beating up Palestinian kids for *fun*. His evidence: a fake video from Guatemala. He’s deliberately misleading people to hate Jews!!! https://t.co/XVqJIbPBR5

That’s not Israel, assclown.

OMG. You’ve been had Graham. Apparently it’s the Guatemalan army. I’m sorry for your loss.

Get ready to make the news…for all the wrong reasons

Apologize immediately, #Liar.

Aside from the falsity of the video, invoking Easter when raging against the only Jewish state is deeply irresponsible. Pogroms against Jewish communities often followed Easter passion plays. Add in the AS trope of blood libel and you are ignorant or racist.

This is from Guatemala. A cursory check on Google would have confirmed that fact. But, for some strange reason you were REALLY happy to attribute it to the Isrealis.
Blood libel next?

🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮 You utter arse.

So you are leaving this up, even though you know it is false and you have acknowledged it’s false? That is extraordinary behaviour for an MP. If you leave it up, when you know it’s wrong, it stops being an ‘honest mistake.’
— David Banks (@DBanksy) April 22, 2019
Retract and apologize for promoting falsehoods that are going to get Jews killed. It's already been pointed out to you by multiple people that this is a video from Guatemala.

Original tweet deleted, and this remains. What a wanker this guy is – glad he is not my MP. #twat

I thought y'all were secular? Or is mentioning "God" and "forgiveness" and Easter just a dog whistle…#think

Not your best moment, comrade.

He doesn't care, he knows it's a lie but he's left it up anyway. He probably knew it was a lie before he posted it https://t.co/v46zz7RMQR

This is #fakenews. Please apologise immediately

Fact checking is fairly simple for most people. Clearly it's not within your remit as an elected member of parliament, trusted by members of the public to make wise decisions. Get off the internet if you don't know how to press the right buttons.

Bellendery of epic proportions by Grahame Morris here. What an absolute tool.
— Leander Starr (@leander_starr) April 22, 2019
Say, I notice your lie is still here. Why is that? Has no one explained to you how to remove posts that turned out to be vapid mistakes based on world-class gullibility and which humiliate you more each minute by their mere continued existence?

I think the worst aspect of this is when it turns out to have been another country's soldiers you have no words of criticism. You seem only to disapprove of such behaviour when you can pretend it is done by Israel. This is naked antisemitism.
— Malcolm Grimston (@MalcolmGrimston) April 22, 2019
It’s hard to imagine an elected official getting something so wrong and so biased on social media; well, it used to be, but Omar’s done more than her part.
INFURIATING: How long can you endure this video of Palestinian kids taunting Israeli soldiers? https://t.co/qe65vKKsXz
