Zac Goldsmith Sparks Fury By Linking Barcelona Attack With Labour Momentum
Conservative MP Zac Goldsmith (pictured above) sparked a flurry of online fury last night after suggesting that the Barcelona Jihadis might have been inspired by posts from the Labour Party left wing group Momentum.
Mr. Goldsmith retweeted a post suggesting that ‘one of the attackers could have obtained an anti-Semitic video from Momentum’
A spokeswoman for the group said: “It is outrageous and deeply shameful that a sitting member of Parliament would use this tragic attack to spread lies and score political points.”
The attackers have now been linked with both the far-right and the far-left of British politics in a disgraceful display of political point-scoring. There is currently no suggestion that anyone in the suspected terrorist cell had any links with UK politics.
Rather than try and go for easy hits, why don’t British politicians call it by its proper name – Islamic Terrorism, which is neither right nor left but driven by the ideology of political Islam.
