We certainly do need to talk about "Rachel Swindon". @omgstater has done an amazing job demonstrating the brutish antisemitism the account has pumped out & enabled. But I want to concentrate on something else, that of "their" identity. Honest is in very short supply it seems 1/11
Is it Jon, is it Rachel? Who knows? What *is* interesting is that despite the continued requests for money, despite the inconsistencies in "their" story, "Rachel" is believed by thousands of Corbynites and indeed supported by the LOTO 2/11

No such luck for Jews though in Corbyn land. No, we are excoriated as liars, as smearers, as fakers as detailed @omgstater's long thread. And not just by "Rachel" no, but by luminaries such as @hackneyabbott

Or @LenMcCluskey head of GB's biggest union, who's "at a loss to understand the motives" of the Jewish community, accusing it of "truculent hostility", rather than believing the vast vast majority who've deep, honest concerns over #LabourAntisemitism 4/11

Yes, Jews could never simply being honest, could they? Not one Jew, not impeccable Labour campaigners/politicians @margarethodge @adamlangleben @supergutman @CJ_Appleby. Nor dyed in the wool Graun lefties @rachelshabi @hadleyfreeman. Jews cannot be believed, except for some 5/11
Ah yes, those staunchly Corbyn Jews found only on Twitter. The ones with "Jewish family background", with "family died in the camps" yet don't understand an iota of Hebrew nor have a smidgen of Jewish knowledge. Those Jews, now *they* can be believed. Or can they..? 6/11
Apparently not. Like good old @_GeorgeRoberts who was rather amusingly unmasked as not quite what he seemed by @d4nf0x. George (Carlos, stockphoto man) has spent months if not years insisting that #LabourAntisemitism doesn't exist. And he's not alone 7/11
Apart from shameless sock puppets, there's also @cquilty52's Law.
"As an online discussion grows longer, the probability that an antisemitic trope sharer will claim to be of Jewish descent approaches 1."
There's a *LOT* of that going on Dr Bastani 8/11
Or there's the ones who use their fake Jewish identity to abuse Jews and accuse them and others of antisemitism... I'm no Dr Freud, nor could I possibly get English (((irony))) but it strikes me that it ain't the Jews lying, and it's rather a classic case of projection 9/11
And then we have the latest phenomenon, the ones who seek to erase Jews entirely out of their oppression. Whitewashing us out of existence, lying about actual history and science to do so. But it's the Jews who are liars and smearers, of course. 10/11
Many Jews are *bone tired*. Of being abused & gaslit, by people who themselves who are liars, cheats, plagiarists and worse. But, unlike you, we are NOT lying, we have truth on our side and we will not give up. Because we know what happens if we do. Am Yisrael Chai, liars. 11/11
And here's just the latest example of dishonest, fake Corbynites pretending to be Jews to minimise antisemitism and attack Jews.
