Default Dozens of Twitter accounts fuelling problem of anti-semitism in Labour party

Dozens of Twitter accounts fuelling problem of anti-semitism in Labour party, researchers say



Researchers that 36 key accounts were flagged for pushing out content
dismissing claims of anti-semitism within the party as “exaggerated,
weaponised, invented or blown out of proportion” over four years.


The research, conducted by charity Community Service Trust (CST), also
found a third of the accounts had themselves tweeted anti-semitic content.




The report titled “Engine of hate, the online networks behind the Labour
party’s anti-semitism crisis”
revealed the networks had used hashtag
campaigns to attack MPs and public figures who had hit out publicly at the
party over concerns about anti-semitism.


They included #BoycottRachelRiley and #SackTomWatson.


Labour’s deputy party leader Mr Watson told the Observer: “This report points
to a deeply troubling online culture where antisemitic narratives have been
allowed to take root.

“I hope this intelligence is shared with the investigators at Labour HQ so tha
t they can explain to the dominant faction that control our party’s national
executive how a small group of prolific social media users can influence our
internal discussions if they are not called out or dealt with swiftly.”


A CST spokesman added: “These are Labour’s social media cheerleaders.


“Our report reveals how they set the tone and drive the vitriol on social
media, attacking anyone who criticises the party’s appalling failure to deal
with its antisemitism problem.”



The charity also discovered a number of those who were behind the accounts
had apologised for their actions and helped educate others on anti-semitism.
