A female passenger in a London cab spouted an antisemitic conspiracy theory about the “Jewish machine” that has been captured in dash cam footage shared widely on X/Twitter.

The London cabbie, whose identity is unknown, can be heard kicking the woman out of his cab.

The one-minute video has been widely shared today on social media by a user called Martin the Cabbie but was originally captured on the evening of October 31. 

In the conversation, she says “It is so easy to trigger everybody nowadays. . . The Jewish machine is so strong, it doesn’t allow you to talk. But again there (are) so many examples of me showing you brutalisation of Palestinian people.”

The driver interrupts the woman: “Right, you can get the f**k out of my cab. Out, out.” 

]When the woman asks him why, he repeats her comment: “‘The Jewish machine doesn’t allow you to talk?’”

The woman can then be heard outside the cab telling the driver that he is an “example of it”.

Again, the cabbie says, “Out you go” and the woman repeats, “You’re an example of it” The driver tells her: “Antisemite, out! You’re an antisemite.” Again, the woman says: “You’re an example of it, I’m allowed to say what I like.”

He tells her “I don’t give a sh*t. Get out.”The driver has been praised on social media for taking a stand against the woman’s antisemitic tirade with some posters calling him a hero for standing up against antisemitism.
