Daily Mail vs Ralph Miliband

Having struck a sour note even amongst right-wing commentators, the Mail’s vicious attack on Miliband’s  dad could even backfire by tempering the “Red Ed” narrative.

JD adds: the bloke on the left, with Hitler, is Lord Rothermere, founder and proprietor of the Daily Mail. Before that, of course, there’d been the famous Mail article, written in 1934 by Rothermere himself, “Hurrah For The Blackshirts.”

And this is the paper that dares accuse the late Ralph Miliband of hating Britain and despising democracy…

    ‘Hurrah for the Blackshirts’ was just a phase and quickly abandoned when it became clear that Mosley could not form an effective fascist movement in Britain.

    What needs to be stressed more is Rothermere’s multiple meetings with Hitler and Goebbels and the latter’s characterization of him in his 1938 Diaries as ‘Strongly anti-Jewish’ and “a strong supporter of the Fuehrer”.

    And then there is the Mail’s anti-semitic reports in 1938 on the ‘flood’ of German Jewish refugees….

    Am surprised I have seen no comment regarding the inherent anti-semitism of the Heil piece
