A VERY long thread on the scale of deception, lies and intimidation I’ve had since speaking out about #LabourAntisemitism, and the lows those seeking to hide it will stoop to.

Since exposing evidence of AS, the attempts to smear me & others have become more and more elaborate.
A frequent lie spread about me, is that I’ve been bullying/encouraging the bullying of a 16 yr old girl.

I’ve posted my entire interaction with her, defending myself politely against claims I’m lying, with evidence to the contrary of antisemitism in Labour.

Proveably untrue.
I last spoke to her in December, following which she posted that she’d blocked me, at which point I wouldn’t have been able to contact her even if I wanted to, which I didn’t.

Since January however, her father @TonyLelliott1 has perpetuated the lies and encouraged the narrative.

The hashtag #FirstAntisemiticExperience which I started a couple of days ago has shown me several things. This thread will pull together what I believe we can learn from it, and what conclusions we should draw from it.
Please follow me to get other insights into being a #Jew
First: thanks to the journalists who picked up on this #FirstAntiSemiticExperience - they’ve helped spread the hashtag. However I am not sure they understood it’s implications fully, it seems they missed that these encounters with #antisemitism happened years, decades ago!
This is a record therefore of #FirstAntisemiticExperience from the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s. My son teeeted one from about 2009. That may be the most recent one!!
Historic #antisemitism. But real nonetheless
So let’s examine what sorts of experience we had:

1/7 Radio 4, 7/1/19 end of @margarethodge interview, verbatim:
‘A Labour Party spokesman said “We are taking action against antisemitism standing in solidarity with Jewish communities and rebuilding trust”
2/7 Twitter 8/1/19 @jk_rowling once more calls out antisemitic whitewasher who speaks in Corbyn’s name.
3/7 There are so many who reference support for Corbyn when they whitewash Labour’s antisemitism and Rowling isn’t thank G-d alone in challenging them on Twitter. #BeLouder

I am not Jewish. My beautiful husband is. I was not bullied, beaten or stabbed for being Jewish, as he was. I do not see the infinite grief of the Holocaust in my family photos. I do not have to justify my existence to those who carry a hatred so old, it is ordinary. /1
But recently I've had a glimpse into how it feels to be Jewish in a place that cares little for me. Antisemitism is at record levels. Street attacks, vandalism of synagogues, desecration of graveyards. Online hate oozes from every pore of the Internet. /2…
Jewish ppl are under attack from every direction, from right to left. The most painful for me is what's coming from the left. My chosen home, politically, culturally and socially. It feels like the upstanders have abandoned us. /3

Here’s all you need to know about the state of the current @UKLabour Antisemitism crisis, displayed over the last 12 hrs.

For months now, I’ve been speaking out to highlight the growing problem of AS in the UK.

On Monday I recorded a Podcast with @krishgm which comes out today
Upon hearing this, some people are worried.
I’ve deleted her handle to avoid a pile on, also I really want nothing to do with her.
Rosie is a 16 year old girl who claims I’m a bully.
I could ignore this, but 1st, it’s wrong. And 2nd, it’s being spread by some dangerous people.
Here are the messages of abuse aimed at me from replies to Rosie’s msgs.
Note @LabLeftVoice is a rabid and dangerous antisemite who has had complaints made about them to the Jewish Community Security Trust @CST_UK as she shares home addresses of people she doesn’t like (doxxing)

I wish I could stop seeing this...

But another thread, on the worrying trend in combatting Antisemitism.

This morning I was heartened, when having read my posts, a man messaged to say he’d changed his views on AS, from a smear on Labour, to valid.

The bullying began...
I’ve deleted his name so he doesn’t get harassed again.

But from simply agreeing the evidence I’ve given looks credible, the abuse, lies, slurs ensued.

Usual stuff, baseless and/or irrelevant:

No evidence
JC supports Jews
Support of Palestine not AS
More personal attacks on me by people joining in.

This guy using my previous attempts to stand up for Jews as evidence I’m questionable Jewish and obliquely implying I could be Antisemitic.

Dear @LabLeftVoice and cohort. I’ve been warned about you. How you harass, intimidate and bully those who speak out against antisemitism. How you rally your supporters and use sock accounts to send weird anti-Israel anti-Zionist nonsense. I’m not interested. More dog pics please!
Big Anchorman fan myself!
I have a voice, a profile. Others you abuse and attack don’t. I will shine a light on this @LabLeftVoice. Batman in the sky style.
Since speaking out again against Antisemitism, the harassment, abuse and character assassination continues.

Those offended by my speaking out, have gone back over my tweets and found this one from 267 days ago. Let me save them the trouble of sharing it and do it myself.
