Jeremy Corbyn, the former leader of the British Labour Party, was subjected to a concerted propaganda campaign by the British right-wing military-industrial establishment, which regarded him as a threat to its interests. This article fleshes out the individual components of this campaign and dissects how it was amplified by the British mainstream media. As Corbyn pointed out, he was not the threat. The real 'threat' was the general public who would have used Corbyn as a political representative to bring services back into common ownership, moderately raise taxes on the wealthy, properly fund social security, and to some degree curtail British militarism abroad.
