Harry Potter author J. K. Rowling mocked this past weekend the UK Labour party over the antisemitism scandals it has been roiled by in recent years.

In a 16-part Twitter thread, Rowling portrayed Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and his supporters as a fanatical cult in blissful denial of their own antisemitism.

Titled, “The visitation of the Corbynites: a festive thread,” the tweet fest began, “And lo, unto her did appear a host of Corbyn defenders, who did descend upon her mentions, and she was not sore afraid, because she was used to it. And the host did sing with one voice, ‘ungodly woman, thou foolest us not. We know the true reason thou despisest Saint Jeremy.’”

Rowling then skewered Corbyn’s backers in Labour for their stances on Brexit, taxation and economics, as well as their slavish devotion to their party’s leader.

“‘But his goodness doth shine out of his every orifice!’ cried the host, swarming anew into her mentions. ‘Behold his beard! Look upon this picture of him being led off by police when he was protesting racism in all its forms!’” Rowling wrote.

Turning to Labour’s antisemitism problem, she tweeted, “Yet must I protest, thou it breaketh my heart so to do, that this party of Labour, which I have so long loved, has become, under St Jeremy – ‘ ‘Speak not of the Jews!’ cried the host. ‘Why must thou speak so oft of the Jews?’ ‘Yea, I must speak,’ said she, ‘for when Jews no longer feel safe in Labour then I too must leave.’”

…and also upon this picture. It is a good picture and I do like a beard, as I have oft declared. Yet must I protest, thou it breaketh my heart so to do, that this party of Labour, which I have so long loved, has become, under St Jeremy -‘

‘Speak not of the Jews!’ cried the host. ‘Why must thou speak so oft of the Jews?’ ‘Yea, I must speak,’ said she, ‘for when Jews no longer feel safe in Labour then I too must leave.’ And one of the host did shout something about the Rothschilds

“And one of the host did shout something about the Rothschilds,” Rowling continued, “and he was hastily hushed by his brethren, who did declare, ‘he is not one of ours, thou he sports a #JC4PM halo.’ And another did speak and he said, ‘it is not antisemitic to criticise Israel,’ and she did put her face in her hands and want to weep.”

Concluding her missive, Rowling lamented Labour’s unwillingness to take criticism, writing, “And the host did despise and condemn her, and many did tell her to …join the Tories, and before they did depart one of their number cried unto her, ‘it’s because he’ll tax you more, isn’t it,’ and she did sigh and wished him a [happy holidays].”

  1. Be it that her language is archaic, it is extremely noble of her to defend us British Jews. The political situation in England is disquieting, and has us quite on edge.

  2. J. K. Rowling would make a much better UK Prime Minister than either the current incumbent or official leader of the opposition. In Europe there has recently been a shortage of prominent people on the Left who have taken on anti-Semitism on the Left but she is trying to make up for that shortage herself! She could easily have remained silent but refused to. I look forward to purchasing her next book.
