A video recently emerged of Mr Corbyn claiming that allegations of antisemitism against him and his brother, the antisemitic former Labour Party leader, Jeremy Corbyn, are a “pack of lies”, and in August, Mr Corbyn suggested that “troublemakers” in Jewish areas posted leaflets created and distributed by Mr Corbyn, which compared the COVID-19 vaccines to the Auschwitz death camp, through their own doors in a “plot” to portray him as antisemitic. Mr Corbyn has compared vaccinations to Nazi policy on more than one occasion.
This post comes days after Mr Corbyn spoke at an anti-vaccination event where former UKIP candidate Jeff Wyatt also spoke and made a comparison between vaccination mandates and the Holocaust.
Mr Wyatt said: “As a little boy, I was amazed that the Jews were brought into the concentration camps. I was amazed that the German people in 1930s allowed the Nazis to do what they did. But here we are. Here we are in 2021, 2022, our fellow countrymen are allowing this fascism to take place.”
At other times during the conference, references were made, from another speaker, to “globalist cartels” behind an “anti-human agenda.”
Mr Wyatt is the former Deputy Leader of the For Britain Movement who stood as a UKIP candidate in Milton Keynes. The For Britain Movement has been described as a “far-right UKIP splinter group” and has been accused of antisemitism and racism.
This is not the first time that Mr Wyatt has made such comparisons. Mr Wyatt spoke at an anti-vaccination rally in November, hosted by Piers Corbyn, where he also made comparisons to the Holocaust whilst wearing the yellow star that was forced upon Jews during the Holocaust.
On a video uploaded to the official YouTube account for UKIP Cambridge & SE Cambs, Mr Wyatt can be seen talking to the camera at an anti-lockdown rally from last year whilst holding a sign that reads “No Gestapo Policing”.
