Isn’t it strange how the witch-hunters who accuse the innocent of anti-Semitism have a cloth ear when it comes to their own abuse?
They twist the words of their political enemies to make it seem they have directed hatred toward Jewish people.
But if a Jewish person opposes their nonsense, they see nothing wrong with comparing them with Nazis or suggesting they should be gassed.
Consider the case of Jenny Manson, chairperson of Jewish Voice for Labour – the organisation of Jewish Labour Party members (as opposed to the Jewish Labour Movement, which accepts people who aren’t Jewish and aren’t in the Labour Party, as long as they support Zionism).
She appeared on the BBC’s Newsnight last week to discuss the Labour anti-Semitism row and defend party leader Jeremy Corbyn.
It seems one of the witch-hunt supporters stalked her – at least inasmuch as he found out her home telephone number – and left a message on her answering machine.
It is utterly vile.
He called her “Nazi scum”. He said she should “burn in the gas oven” and “burn in acid”.
If you have the stomach for it, you can listen to the full message here.
Ms Manson has also received an abusive email, and says she is regularly stopped in the street by people who act aggressively towards her in response to her support of Labour.
It seems clear, to me at least, that this is what the witch-hunters want.
Jeremy Corbyn was recently punched in the head by a man who, it seems, was misled about Labour’s policy toward Brexit.
It’s only a matter of time until someone is assaulted – or worse – by supporters of the witch-hunt.
What excuse will they give for doing it? Who will they say enticed them into it?
We could all mention names, no doubt.
Perhaps it is time to hold them to account.
Next time they make unfounded accusations, perhaps we should lodge complaints against them under the Public Order Act – fear or provocation of violence.

I tried to post this to Facebook and received a message: “Your message couldn’t be sent because it includes content that other people on Facebook have reported as abusive.” Any suggestions of the origin of this nonsense and how it can be prevented?
This is the first I’ve heard of it. Anyone else?
using the public order act should include those idiots in parliament who claim immunity to it. that would be funny as i know there would be a flood of complaints under the incitement of violence and provocation of violent acts, under the public order act, on a daily basis. the nazis in government should be in the dock being tried for genocide and wilful destruction of the lives of people who are ill or disabled, or both. then there are those who are without a job for no discern-able reason other than they have failed to find any. there are a number of counts of crimes they can be tried for. unfortunately not many want to know.
Isn’t it about time the Police stepped in and traced this type of call, took that Dartmouth to court and, if he turns out to be something more than just a nutter, got him put inside and, if he has been put up by right wing nasties, made sure that they get kicked out of office!
