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)
More abuse.

LabourFanTV @thebirmingham6 and Wolfie @Tpopularfront are notorious.

Notice the classic @UKLabour markers often found with these accounts.

But if I’m such a bully, maybe I deserve it? Let me show you what I’ve said...
This is how it all started.

I’ve taken screengrabs of the conversation so I could remove Rosie’s handle. I’ll add the links in as I go.

They’re important, they contain all the evidence as to why this is such an enormous problem.
For the record, I met @lucianaberger at @_NatashaDevon’s Mental Health campaign event, here. No big conspiracy.

@RuthSmeeth was victim to AS abuse at the start of @jeremycorbyn’s event wrt results of an AS enquiry. (Irony)

The abuse she got afterwards:
Every week @LabourAgainstAS does a review of the last 7 day’s worth of AS, if you’re interested, follow them.

Refusal to condemn the murder of 11 Jews in Pittsburg article:…

@Steve_Cooke’s original account:
Labour official joking about cutting Jews throats:…

Incredibly powerful videos describing the AS they’ve received @lucianaberger…

Brings me to tears watching @RuthSmeeth

FT article I took the peach quote from.…

Rosie’s replies.

I said have a good Christmas, and the last message I sent is here, asking if she’d reconsider her comments about Jews being fed lies considering the evidence I’d shown her.

I didn’t hear back.
This was the last thing I knew Rosie had written about me, I shrugged & moved on with my life.

I wouldn’t call that bullying myself.

It would have taken all of minutes to smear me and spread hate, but I’ve now sat for a couple of hours to compile this and defend myself.
This has a direct parallel with the spread of Antisemitism.

Antisemitism is a whole bunch of conspiracy theories about the Jews. Control the world, media, banks, wars, any BS people want to say, they can.

It takes effort to fight this, and we need help.

We need #ActiveAllies
It took lots of learning to get to grips with what on Earth is happening, why, and how.

To talk about Antisemitism, a cause so important to so many people is quite daunting, personal and exhausting.

Thanks for taking the time to read this.

If you want to help #BeLouder ❤️🙏✡️
Finally, I don’t blame any one person for this, no one has anything to gain from a pile-ons, so pls don’t.
But this culture has developed, with those who’ve created it, doing so in the name of today’s incarnation of Labour.
There’s nothing kinder nor gentler about it.
