Leah Kiernan: Addendum

I posted earlier about Leah Kiernan, the London rioter and antizionist organiser who called for a “gunshot to the head” to the Home Secretary, Theresa May.

She has now deleted her Twitter feed (available here still), but not before tweeting this:

“THERE IS A WEIRD HATE PAGE AGAINST ME.. SAYING IM AN ANTI SEMITE AND OTHER BOLLOCKS.. I WILL CONTINUE TO SAY WHAT THE FUCK I WANT.”

In the post, I pointed out some of the concerning things she has said during the London riots, and noted how she wanted Marks & Spencer to burn, because it is somehow “Zionist”. That’s quite an extreme position to take.

So, I reported what she actually said, with minimal comment.

The strange thing is, no-one said she’s an antisemite.

Why then, did she say she was called an antisemite?

Gene adds: Comment from Larsf:

Here in Norway we have a little experience in what words like wanting to “shoot” people can mean. There was a rightwing nut; fed by certain blogs etc, that went from reading and thinking such things, to doing things; awful things; like shooting people…

There is little difference between parts of the far left, and the far right. They both share a certain wish for violence. Words are not just words, they do have a meaning! I do think that [were] this person living in Norway; the police would by now be at least wanting to have a little “conversation” with her…
