    There are some people on here who have dismissed the anti semitism and abuse directed towards some (mainly Jewish) UK Labour MPs as some plot by Israel to undermine Corbyn, but they talk from a point of ignorance if they don’t believe it is happening.

    Earlier this week LBC received a leaked report that detailed the anti Semitic abuse and it also details threats of violence – and death – against Labour MPs by Labour members. What is shocking is the Labour Party didn’t inform the MPs of the threats nor did they report the threats to the police. I realise some here will go into full anti semitism apologist mode and declare it all a smear, lies, and some Zionist conspiracy from Israel against Corbyn (that is the line the Corbyn Cult have been running). Below is an unrolled thread from twitter by the journalist that broke the story. Corbyn may or may not be anti Semitic but his weak leadership has created an environment where anti semitism thrives, and McDonnell’s previous threats of violence and harassment against Conservative MPs (when he was a backbench MP) has created an environment where Labour members and activists feel they can harass and threaten violence against those they disagree with politically. It has become a toxic party.

    Here is the thread:

      If you think it’s crazy now, just wait till Michael Avenatti is Dem candidate for president. Then the fun will really start,
