We believe Jeremy Hunt is weaponising antisemitism in the most vile way possible by linking Jeremy Corbyn, a life long anti racist who has publicly condemned antisemitism on numerous occasions, with Hitler and the atrocities that Jewish people endured and suffered during the Holocaust. His exact quote was: 

“When I went to Auschwitz I rather complacently said to myself, ‘thank goodness we don’t have to worry about that kind of thing in the UK’ and now I find myself faced with the leader of @UKLabour who has opened the door to antisemitism” 

By implying Corbyn is the next Hitler, he is deliberately and cynically fanning the flames of fear about a Corbyn led Labour government amongst Jewish people to enhance his chances of winning a General Election. It is notable that he shows no concern over the fact his opponent in the Tory leadership contest is an Islamophobic, racist, but that's because he's a fellow Tory.

 

Hunt's remarks are beyond disgusting and we demand that he issue a sincere apology to Mr Corbyn immediately!
