Over the past few years Ann-Marie Waters, an Irish LGBT activist, backed by Ezra Levant’s Rebel Media, Tommy Robinson and a cabal of Jewish nationalists with irrefutable ties to American Neoconservative organisations, has advanced upon the British political scene.
Waters, an ardent Marxist, first entered the fold as the spokesperson for the British-based left wing National Secular Society (NSS), attacking her host nation’s traditional mores, Christian faith and British values. Waters pushed the usual litany of aggressive LGBT demands that Cultural Marxists routinely package as genuine civil rights grievances from her position with the NSS.
Recognising the fact that she needed the backing of an established political organization, to make any real headway in British politics, Waters then joined the Labour Party where she set her sights on standing in Britain’s parliamentary elections.
Things progressed until Waters’ dogmatic allegiance to the advancement of LGBT causes and hostility towards Islam (the latter quite sensible but unusual on the left) eventually proved to be fatal her chances of becoming part of the Party’s inner circle.
Waters’ refusal to embrace every last aspect of society-destroying liberalism ultimately resulted in resounding electoral failure, and in her being pushed out of the Party.
After two failed attempts to be selected as her party’s parliamentary candidate – first in Britain’s Gay capital, Brighton, and then in South Swindon in Wiltshire, South West England, relying upon a reference she procured from an Iranian Marxist dissident – Waters quit the Labour Party.
In an Open Letter on the Dispatch International website Waters explained her decision to leave the Party.
I joined the Labour Party because I believed that all people should have equal rights, and should never be disadvantaged as a result of characteristics that they cannot change. I believed that people should have the same rights and protections irrespective of their gender or skin colour. I believed in fairness and in justice. I believed in civil liberties and a government run by the people for the people.
I still believe in those things, which is why I cannot, in any good conscience, remain a member of the Labour Party.
Although Waters attempted to pinkwash her actual reason for leaving Labour with “gender” this, “skin colour” that, and other leftist tosh and twaddle, her problematic relationship with the Labour Party brass had far more to do with how their street activists view Israel than anything else.
Waters, in fact, discussed her fall from grace with the Left in her own private blog in a piece entitled, ‘Israel and Gay Rights’.
It is said that while it is hard to stand up to your enemies, it is even harder to stand up to your friends. I spent many years at the heart of left wing politics and discovered, to my cost, what can happen when you begin to take a different view, when you do your research and realise that the accepted consensus isn’t necessarily correct; speaking out on this can result in rejection, expulsion from the club.
There is no area where this so robustly applies among the hard left than that of the state of Israel. Support of or sympathy for Israel can make you an immediate enemy to many. Israel is the untouchable issue; the consensus from which you cannot veer.
The fact that Israel is the only country in the Middle East in which gay people enjoy anything resembling freedom or human rights is apparently a fraud — because the anti-Israel left demands that it be so.
As far back as 1963, Israel declared that it would not apply any of the homophobic laws on its books — much of them in existence due to British mandate [further evidence of Waters’ contempt for traditional Britain]. This was four years prior to the decriminalisation of homosexuality in Britain. In 1992 LGBT people were protected from discrimination in the workplace — also, before it happened in Britain. In 1994 same-sex partners were given the same benefits as straight couples in the private sector, and three years later in the public sector. The Israeli military rescinded any discrimination against gay people serving soon afterwards, and in 2002 the age of consent was equalised at 16. Lesbian couples were given the right to adopt each other’s children (conceived through artificial insemination) in 2005. There are openly gay judges, Members of Parliament (the Knesset), and many LGBT public personalities and celebrities. Dana International, a transgendered woman, represented Israel in the Eurovision contest in 1998, and won. In 2012 Tel Aviv was voted (in an online poll) as the world’s number one destination for gay travellers.
Contrast all of this with the Palestinian territories and their leadership, so beloved of the hard left. In the Gaza Strip, ruled with an iron fist by Hamas, not only are women subject to appalling treatment, but homosexuality can result in death. In 2011 Hamas cofounder, Mahmoud Zahar, said, “You in the West do not live like human beings. You do not even live like animals. You accept homosexuality. And now you criticize us?” Attacks are frequent in the Gaza Strip and gays live in fear; so much so that LGBT Palestinians commonly flee to Israel.
Why is there no civil marriage in Israel?
A common theme at the Occidental Observer, and one that I also try to explore in my writing, is one that exposes duplicitous hypocrisy. And I can think of no more egregious example than Ms Waters’ nonsensical claim that Israel is the Middle East’s bastion of human rights and personal freedom. Quite clearly she is interested in the the rights of only one group — gender non-conformists. In her eyes, Palestinians are worthy of any sort of mistreatment by Israel, including apartheid and ethnic cleansing regularly condemned by the UN, if they do not hold liberal views on LGBT issues.
In response to the United Nations Economic and Social Commission’s decision to officially refer to Israel as an ‘apartheid-state’ Ms Waters chose to ignore Israel’s grotesque record on human rights and instead admonished South Africa’s former nationalist government who have now been out of power for almost a quarter of a century!
The Pinkwash campaign slogan is “No Pride in Israeli Apartheid”. Perhaps it should be, “There is no Apartheid in Israel” (which is not as catchy, I grant you). Apartheid made its name in the appalling regime of South Africa from 1948 to 1994; a regime not remotely comparable to that of Israel today. In South Africa white people enjoyed rights and privileges that black citizens were denied. Racist laws forced black and white to live in separate areas, attend separate schools, and discriminated in terms of ownership, the holding of public office, and voting.
The fact that international condemnation of Israel is due to the ethno-state’s barbaric treatment of the indigenous Palestinian population — most of whom are Muslim — and not the oppression of the nation’s vibrant LGBT community, is the obvious explanation of Waters’ improbity.
Ms Waters, as one would expect from a Marxist feminist and secularist, actively campaigned for marriage equality in Great Britain and native Ireland — equality that enabled her to marry her lesbian partner — yet remained curiously silent on Israel’s strikingly egregious record on marriage. In fact Israel is the only democratic nation on earth where civil marriage is unavailable due to the monopoly the Rabbinical Courts have on the institution. Every time a bill has been proposed that would implement civil marriage (one that would still forbid Jews marrying someone from the nation’s non-Jewish population, mind you) it’s been rejected by the Knesset plenum, meaning Israeli Jews cannot even marry one another, unless the union is sanctioned by the Rabbinical Courts.
Hiddush, a left wing Israel-based NGO whose mission is “promoting religious freedom and equality in Israel,” ranked the Jewish ethno-state as “the only Western democracy that is on a par with Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia and other Wahhabi Islamic states when it comes to freedom of marriage”, due to the fact that it remains a criminal offense for Jews in Israel to marry outside the state’s religious authority. Doing so can result in incarceration for up to two years.
I wonder if Ms Waters knows this or if she has noticed that the sovereign Islamic nations her beloved Israel regularly threatens — Syria, Lebanon etc. — are NOT on that list.
Based on statistics it tabulated from reports conducted by Israel’s Central Bureau of Statistics, Hiddush claims that that there are 364,000 immigrants from the former Soviet Union that cannot even get married in Israel. And they are predominantly Jews!
In fact, after spending several hours reviewing halakha (Jewish religious law which legislates marriage in Israel), I think it’s reasonable to say that Israeli Orthodox Rabbinical Courts have more in common with the Sharia Law Courts Ms Waters claims she fights against than the English Common Law that’s afforded her the ability to arrive on British soil as an immigrant and attack our values and Christian beliefs. (see Part 1 of this essay for Ms Waters’ position on abortion, gay marriage and adoption, her contempt for the Church, etc.)
Although one will struggle to find mention of the inhumanity of Israel’s marriage laws in the Western media, tales of discrimination are rife and easily sourced when one looks at left -Jewish newspapers. It took me literally one Google search and a few clicks on resulting links to find dozens of stories of blatant discrimination perpetrated against Sephardic Jews, Arabs, and other gentiles of all denominations by Israel’s Rabbinical courts. One need only look at what Ivanka Trump had to go through just to wed Jared Kushner to get an idea how strict these people are.
Haaretz’s, Amiram Barkat writes:
Irina Plotnikov (an Ashkenazim from Russia) cannot marry the man she loves, Shmuel Cohen (member of Israel’s Rabbinical class), even though she is Jewish according to halakha (Jewish religious law). A Rabbinic court in Jerusalem ruled recently that even though Plotnikov is Jewish she is not eligible to marry a Cohen since her father is not Jewish. According to Jewish tradition, people with the surname Cohen are descendants of the priests that served in the Temple in Jerusalem 2,000 years ago.
When the couple registered at the rabbinate, the marriage registrar referred Plotnikov to a Rabbinic court for a process for ascertaining Jewishness. This is a procedure which all immigrants from the [former Soviet Union] are required to undergo if they want to marry. After presenting documents and hearing testimony from witnesses on Plotnikov’s behalf, the Rabbinic court confirmed that Plotnikov is Jewish and single, and ruled that “she can be married in accordance with Jewish tradition, except to a Cohen. Since civil marriage and non-Orthodox religious marriage in Israel are not legally recognized, the sole option remaining to the couple is to wed overseas.
Israeli restriction on marrying a Cohen makes the Nuremberg laws look lax. Perhaps the happy Jewish couple should have traveled to Britain, even Syria or Iran, where they would in fact have been permitted to marry! Yes, Jews can in fact marry in Iran.
Whether Anne-Marie Waters’ contempt for anti-Semitism in the Labour Party was behind her decision to leave the party, or something she simply manufactured once Jewish support started pouring in, we will never know.
One thing we can be sure of though, and that is that Ms Waters cares little about human rights or genuine marriage equality, especially when it’s being violated by Israel.
It was somewhere during this murky period of her transformation from Marxist Lesbian identitarian and Labour parliamentary candidate to media-ordained leader of the British far right, that Waters first publicly teamed up with Tommy Robinson — the openly pro-Zionist street protester covered relentlessly by the establishment and controlled alternative press.
It was also during this period that Waters wandered into UKIP meetings in Croydon, held by the right-wing populist party’s former Commonwealth spokesman, Winston McKenzie, where she immediately asked to be granted the opportunity to run for office. Within 6 months of standing for the left-wing Labour Party on a platform that prioritized extending abortion limits, railroad nationalization and advancing LGBT causes, Waters was seeking the right-wing UKIP parliamentary nomination, by promising her predominantly conservative constituents she’d curtail Islamic immigration and shut mosques.
I set-up and ran the new UKIP Branch of Croydon North & Lambeth. As we had many new members arriving, I recall initiating training courses for potential candidates on behalf of the Party. Anne-Marie Waters was one such local resident who arrived at my monthly meetings.
After a couple of months, I began to tutor Waters on media and presentation. Although she was a natural, I encountered a point during this intense period of training, where she seemed to exhibit an unnerving bias and hostility against men … . Her delivery, in my personal opinion, was aggressive and spiteful. She was a bitter woman and not a patriot for England.
McKenzie, who is himself an outspoken critic of London Mayor Sadiq Khan and Islam, noted that “other than her policy on Muslim immigration, Waters seemed to talk about little else.”
That’s because apart from her stance on Islam, Marie is a left wing ideologue….
Since infiltrating McKenzie’s Croydon meetings, Anne-Marie Waters has twice been deselected as a candidate by UKIP — first for appearing on stage with proscribed Zionist troublemakers and interlopers while launching PEGIDA UK (see picture above), and then again this June by party leader Paul Nuttall, who realized he’d opened Pandora’s box by allowing Waters into the party in the first place.
The prospect of having an anti-immigration Lesbian Labour defector who ticks all the right rainbow-colored boxes representing your party at the London Assembly will cloud sound judgement. In all fairness, no one could have predicted that within a year of entering the party Waters would be in a position to lead it. Even the top legal minds of UKIP are not geopolitically astute enough to recognise the power and influence media outlets like Rebel Media wield.
Sadly, in spite of her antics and the dangerous people and organisations she is connected to, there’s absolutely nothing in the party’s bylaws that prohibits Waters from standing for the leadership election.
And the rest as they say is history….
Ms Waters is now but a few weeks away from hijacking UKIP from the genuine patriots who still support it, and the men and women that built it.
If victorious, Ms Waters will receive loads of free airtime to proclaim how badly Jews are treated in Britain, how wonderful Israel is on human rights, and most importantly, how the West must continue to give the Jewish ethno-state its unwavering financial support, even if it means militarily backing Israeli aggression towards Iran and Syria.
This, at the end of the day, is why the Rebel Media and Zionist organisations based in North America and Israel, who have absolutely no business meddling in our domestic political affairs, fund shills like Anne-Marie Waters.

Although I have known Winston McKenzie for some time and count him as a friend, initially when writing this story, I had no idea he even knew Ms Waters. It came up organically during a conversation we were having on a separate issue.
The front-runner, Peter Whittle, who currently serves as UKIP’s Deputy Leader, is only marginally better than Waters, also Gay and although not directly beholden to Jewish interests, is just as driven by his homosexual identity as Waters.
Former UKIP leader, Nigel Farage, who earlier ruled himself out of the contest, warned that candidates like Waters and Whittle would “take the party to a dark place” from which there’d be no return.
Ideologically, candidate, John Rees-Evans, is UKIP’s best bet as he is a proponent of the right to keep and bear arms, is widely viewed as someone who says what he feels and has been criticized in the Press for being insensitive to the LGBT community, and has somewhat of a military background. Rees-Evans, in fact, owns a bunker and shooting range in Bulgaria and would put a bit of personality and masculinity back into the Party.
Currently, there are two single issue anti-Muslim parties, three if you include political organisations like the English Defence League. Between them their leadership spends more time in the back of a police car than they do in the political conversation. A third party will divide their vote and support even farther.
Le Pen’s Front National succeeded as they were politically sound on an array of issues, combined with the fact that they were the sole electable party pushing the notion that Islam is culturally incompatible with the West. Conversely, none of the aforementioned parties have a legitimate chance of electoral success, due to the fact they are single issue parties run by politically inconsequential figures.
