The far-left activist organisation HOPE not Hate have been forced to publicly distance themselves from Labour Party activist and Momentum organiser Ian Love, who has been accused of posting anti-Semitic rants on social media.
The far-left group, who have taken money from left-wing billionaire George Soros’ Open Society Foundations in the past, announced that they would be severing ties with Mr Love, who has been investigated for anti-Semitism in what is just the latest anti-Semitism scandal for the Labour Party.
Love is accused of writing various anti-Semitic posts on Facebook, such as labelling former prime minister Tony Blair “Jewish to the core” and claiming he was under the “protection” of the Rothschild banking family.
“It was not about anti-Semitism, it was about capitalism – my words were twisted,” Love, who has since resigned from his position as an organiser for the Portsmouth branch of Momentum, told Portsmouth News.
