Here's what they're saying on FB group "Jeremy Corbyn - True Socialism" in response to Momentum's excellent video (and protest) about David Icke's antisemitism and promotion of Holocaust denial.

SPOILER: It hasn't gone down well. 1/
First the admins. The moderators of this 17,000 strong forum. They are the people you would contact if you see antisemitic content on there and er... want it removing. 2/
Conspiracy theories are unfalsifiable, antisemitic ones are too. Any evidence given to contradict the theory is taken as the very essence of its validity.

So this video/protest can only be the work of Jon Lansman, arch Zionist using illegitimate finance for nefarious means. 3/
Other admins don't mind a bit of David Icke either. Most of the comments in the threads dismiss his alien reptile stuff but they clearly buy into all the pseudo-Nazi Rothchild Zionism stuff.

David Icke has a lot more influence than many people give him credit for. 4/
5/ On David Icke's Holocaust denial... another admin er, well... just read it.
6/ And that's just the admins. Mostly the comments are equally supportive of Icke and appalled at Momentum's stance against antisemitism, believing it to be a "Zionist" conspiracy to keep the antisemitism story going.

Several people say they're leaving Momentum as a result.
7/ For a real chill down the spine: one person in the group thankfully explains that Icke promotes Holocaust denial, far-right activists and is in fact an antisemite.

But there can be only one reason why anyone would say that.

Can you guess what it is?
8/ Fascinating how similar this is to the far-right. The only reason why anyone would object to Holocaust denial and antisemitism is because they are secretly a Jew. Only difference is this case is the word has been changed to Zionist.
9/ So props to Momentum for making the vid but without wanting to sound like a dick, those who are serious about making inroads into an antisemitic culture on the Left should be under no illusions about the gravity of the task. This isn't a few bad apples or a few cranks...
10/ It's a culture nourished by new-left media (all of it), nurtured in closed FB forums where extremist content has poisoned people's minds over the last few years. Some people already had these views, others have been schooled. Pandora's box has been opened. Night night x
