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.
This was the story of the Nazi pug, where the evidence I’d read, and listening to the views of @Baddiel & @rickygervais, that it was a (IMO stupid) joke, I read this as a case of the right to offend vs freedom of speech.
Their discussion:
Defending this view is not a hill I will choose to die on.
The man in question is most likely an antisemite, as he has frequently shared a platform with Holocaust Deniers and Convicted Terrorists.
No wait... that’s @jeremycorbyn.…
The comedian in question has since spoken out at a far-right rally organised by former EDL leader Tommy Robinson, and joined UKIP. Perhaps I was duped back in March, perhaps those believing Labour’s Leader is a righteous “anti-racism in all forms” hero are being duped now.
The tactics the far-left bullies are using now, have been used time and time again against those speaking out against Antisemitism in the @UKLabour party. My aim in this, is to expose them as the vile racists that they are for all to see. And they are playing right into my hands.
Others they’ve done this to don’t have the same platform I do. I’ve heard stories of so much hate & abuse it’s resulted in suicide attempts, even one incident that’s tantamount to attempted murder.

I DO NOT say this lightly or without pause.

I’m angry & determined to fight them
The suspected ringleader in this incident has many accounts on social media, shares home addresses of those they disagree with, and is subject of a potential prosecution. As such I can’t give more details, except that they belong in prison.
In this journey, finding out more than I’d ever want to know about Antisemitism in our country, I’ve met many good people, lifelong Labour supporters who’ve suspended their ordinary lives, given up/postponed successful careers to fight this scourge. They want to live normal lives
I want to live my normal life, this isn’t fun, it’s potentially dangerous and not a clever career move.
I don’t care what politics you choose, I really don’t, that’s up to you. But this situation needs handling. The cries of smear need to stop. And the victim blaming needs to end
I hope the trolls enjoy going through my tweets. I have nothing to hide. Amongst the Man United chat, pics of dogs, promotion of maths and supporting charities and whatever else, is a wealth of evidence of Antisemitism in Labour - they might learn something.
I appreciate the huge support I’ve had on this, I really do. I think I need a breather. Rest assured I’m going nowhere. Here are some accounts to follow if you want to know more. They’re not always polite. These volunteers are also angry. @LabourAgainstAS @GnasherJew
For the final word on this thread, I leave it Rabbi Lord Sacks from the House of Commons debate in Antisemitism in September.

The haters are loud #BeLouder ❤️
