you can always count on centrist jess phillips to use any opportunity to needlessly attack the left with false equivalencies.
a reminder that the hard right actually murdered the labour mp jo cox in 2016; the
supposed “hard left” just want to follow international law and prevent
senseless violence. let’s also remember that this is the same jess phillips who said “i will knife you in the front” regarding jeremy corbyn, and told the uk’s first female black mp diane abbott to “fuck off”.
let’s contrast this with how jess described conservative tory mp jacob rees-mogg (someone who opposes same-sex marriage and abortion, even in cases of rape, and most recently met with steve bannon) as “charming and funny, kind”. jess and jacob also held a joint event together in october 2017.
centrists always talk about the left causing division, but it is centrists who time and time again sow division and actually side with the conservative party and their policies. that is the centrist version of “unity”.
