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.
Some of the messages were replying to tweets I couldn’t see, as the tweeter had blocked me.

As far as I know, I’ve never had any dealings with this person, but their timeline shows support of those known to promote Antisemitism Loach, Bastani, Chomski. No surprise pro-Corbyn.
She RTd a disgusting message about Corbyn, which quite rightly is to be condemned & I don’t support in any way.

I, like everyone, have no idea who the tweeter is, and as 3 of the responders suggested, it could be a far right troll, which has quite rightly been suspended.
The sickening thing I found with this message, is the level of Antisemitic comments, language, conspiracy theory, baseless allegations and hatred found in one set of replies. Completely unchallenged and completely unphased by each other’s remarks.
Without foundation they’ve blamed Antisemitism campaigner @GnasherJew, Mossad, Hasbara (read Israeli) trolls, Tories, Blairites, baby murderers, vermin and a wide range of genocidal “British” Jews.
Many flying the Corbyn flags of 🇵🇸🌹 #GTTO.
The openness of this hatred is plain for all to see.

It needs standing up to.

This level of conspiracy and rejection of reality helps neither the @UKLabour Party, nor the Palestinian cause.

People should not feel scared to speak up against Antisemitism.

Please #BeLouder ❤️🙏
To all messaging outrage after recent thread re Antisemitism, not because of the AS I highlighted, but because I said one of their heroes (Chomsky) promoted Antisemitism.

Here he is, supporting a Holocaust denier.

If that doesn’t promote Antisemitism, I don’t know what does.
I don’t expect most people to read this, but as these people (inc Labour councillor @helensclegel) are maligning me to friends, supporters and my employer, I feel the need to defend myself.
