An example of a lie getting half way around the world before the truth has a chance to put its boots on.

I’m fed up of the character smears, but in today’s bizarro world, this week musician spends days libelling me, and for this is called a ‘Star’ by an ex-England footballer 🤦🏼‍♀️
Back in December, off the back of a shower of hate I’d received for posting evidence of the UK’s growing anti-Jewish racism problem with the left, I received this message from a teenage girl telling me I should be ashamed of myself etc...
What followed was a polite exchange from both parties, as we both explained our positions.

Weeks later, as the spotlight on antisemitism, and my part in that grew, this exchange was then used by some other people seeking to discredit me, to smear me as a ‘viscous child bully’.
The whole interaction is online for everyone to see, there was no bullying whatsoever. But this doesn’t matter to a group who will believe what they want to believe, supported by a network of propagandists, fake news websites, blogs and mouth pieces.
These messages remain online, & continue to be thrown at me daily to ‘prove’ how awful I am. Notice none of them have any evidence, quotes or screengrabs of my so-called abuse.

It’s not true, it’s not pleasant & it’s not without its consequences under @MLewisLawyer’s attention.
Yet again these lies are being spread, whether wilfully or ignorantly (likely a mixture of both) by my new friends #GTTO #JC4PM 🌹

I’m so glad the EHRC are going to be investigating the Labour for racism. This is how their failures to act have badly impacted real people’s lives.
I hope NEVER to have to post about this again, it’s tiring & tedious. I’ve every right to defend myself and won’t have it flippped round to be labelled an aggressor - that’s victim blaming.

Thanks to all the real active allies in all this ❤️ #BeLouder 🙏

2 months on the spotlight’s gone from a little torch to a floodlight.

Solidarity to @GnasherJew @LabourAgainstAS @mishtal @jewishpeacock whose characters are under attack yet against this morning for the same reason.

Being Louder is working. Keep at it.
