"Violent Extremist Tactics and the Ideology of the Sectarian Far Left" - ominous new Home Office report

Two pioneers of the 'antisemitism' campaign, Daniel Allington and David Hirsh, have now had their 'research' published by the Home Office's 'Commission for Countering Extremism'.

In their paper entitled "Violent Extremist Tactics and the Ideology of the Sectarian Far Left", they seek to redefine many left-wing and anti-capitalist ideas as somehow inherently violent and therefore requiring surveillance and containment. The implications for all left wing activists - including leftist academics - are serious indeed.

The intensity and effectiveness of the 'antisemitism' campaign in the Labour Party took us all by surprise. We need to be better prepared for the extension of this onslaught.
