Don't think I've seen anything more depressing than the lengths some people on the left are going to to whitewash antisemitism and discredit @JohnMannMP after his speech in the antisemitism debate in Parliament. 1/
Worth outlining what people are actually doing in Jeremy Corbyn's name here. Only hope the decent Corbyn supporters are as reviled by this as the rest of society because it is the worst possible advert for this political movement.

John's speech in full:

The "role" John refers to is the chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group Against Antisemitism - he took up the post in 2005. He outlines some of the things that have happened since, a dead bird through the post, an Islamist death threat etc.. 3/
He also spoke about the increase in left-wing hate in the last few years from some people in and around Momentum which has targeted his Jewish colleagues, himself and his family... 4/
This is being twisted to make out that John was trying to sell the dead bird sender as a Corbyn-supporter. He wasn't. But here's a tiny flavour of what some have actually dished out to him in Jeremy Corbyn's name... 5/
The organiser of Portsmouth Momentum calling for him to be hung.

Endless petitions calling for him to be suspended for standing up to Livingstone. 6/
John's submission to the Home Affairs Select Committee Report into Antisemitism from 2016 which includes hundreds and hundreds of emails/messages/tweets from people, many identifying as Jeremy Corbyn supporters, giving vile him antisemitic abuse. A snapshot: 7/
This has continued unabated for the subsequent two years. Type John's name into any Pro-Corbyn FB forum and see for yourself. This was the reaction to his speech on Tuesday on FB group "Jeremy Corbyn - True Socialism" 8/
Even respectable journos, with huge leftist audiences, have combed through (or ignored) a 2 hour antisemitism debate to find one innocuous thing (John's wife receiving a dead bird through the post) to twist into a "Ha! Gotcha" in order to whitewash Left/Labour antisemitism.
Even my own Facebook feed has comments like this on it today... 10/
No comments from any these people including @Kevin_Maguire on the recent rape threat to John's wife, no comment on the 1000's of antisemitic emails/tweets/messages he's received and is receiving right now.

Just unbridled hate and apologism for racism.. 11/
And of course the vile pro-Corbyn media outlet @skwawkbox is at it.12/
One thing is for sure. In the past few weeks all those people who have gone to such twisted lengths to prove that Labour doesn't have an antisemitism have succeeded only in proving to everyone outside their bubble that Labour has a very serious problem with antisemitism. /Ends.
