" I have never heard the word "Zio" trueblue22 "
We have had threads where the term/derogatory/inflamatory use of the word ' ZIO' has been discussed on GN. Indeed the likes of Shami Chakrobarti, Sadiq Khan et al have spoke of the use of the term ' ZIO' having no Place in the Labour Party.
There was an inquiry led by Labour Baroness Jan Royal into anti semitism and the Oxford University Labour Club in 2016. Alex Chalmers, the Co Chair of the Oxford University Labour Club resigned citing antisemitism and the use of the word ' ZIO' as part of the reason.
My belief is the term “Zio,” is a term brought to the fore by the Klu Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke and often deployed by white supremacists.
It has been adopted by the both the Far Right and Far Left of politics and used as a form of an antisemitic trope toward Jewish people.
Willing to be corrected if I am mistaken.
