Proof that most Online Abuse of Women, Blacks and Gays comes from Right-wingers

The Tories  and Republicans often like to claim the Left is abusive, especially online. But most online sexist, racist and homophobic abuse comes from Far Right who enjoy impunity due to majority right wing media control.

But a new survey by Amnesty International of abuse received by women MPs in the run-up to the last election clearly shows that online abuse in Britain comes overwhelmingly from the Right:

And the MP who easily receives the most abuse is Britain’s first female black MP Diane Abbott:

Hats off to Diane for taking such industrial scale horrific abuse so fearlessly.

How online abuse is politically hijacked

    By OwenJones (summary )   All online abuse is unacceptable. The principal victims of online abuse are women. I have female friends who have turned down television appearances because men will bombard them on social media with sickening misogynistic abuse about how they look….

There is a certain type of man — whatever their political persuasion — who cannot stand women with opinions, and believe those who express them are fair game.

More generally, women of colour face particular abuse. It is unlikely there is any British politician who as great a victim of online abuse as Diane Abbott, both in terms of intensity and how sustained it is.

CARNIVAL AGAINST FASCISM Bristol UK, Sunday 10th September

CARNIVAL AGAINST FASCISM

Bristol, Sunday 10th September

A day of partying, resistance and PRIDE!

On the 10th September a group calling itself ‘Gays against Sharia’ is coming to Bristol to try to spread their Islamophobic and racist agenda. This is a blatant attempt by the far-right to tokenise LGBTQIA+ communities and use us for their own ends.Image result for carnival against Fascism bristol

This has been tried before in Bristol: in 2012, the EDL marched on the same day as Pride. While their PR insisted they weren’t homophobic, their violent attacks on gay men on the day told another story.[0]

Let’s not be fooled by their latest clumsy attempt to wrap fascism in a rainbow flag.

We will not be used to spread oppression that would inevitably turn straight back on us. History shows that wherever these bigots gain momentum by scapegoating one group (Muslims and migrants today, Jews in the 30s) they target us soon after.

So we are planning to stop them with a large, spectacular and fabulous carnival – dust off your heels, shine up your boots and join us!Exact details about when and where to meet will be released nearer the time via:

facebook.com/bristolqueercaf
facebook.com/bristolantifascists
And here’s the facebook event.

Remember:

Cops and far-right thugs can be unpredictable, so to keep each other as safe as we can, it’s recommended to come with friends and stick together.

This event is queer-led but anyone who wants to stop fascism, racism and homophobia is very welcome.


So who are ‘Gays against Sharia’?

On their last outing (Manchester, June 2017) they yelled racist and homophobic abuse and attacked people. A homeless man was hospitalised while protecting a mum and young daughter from them.[1] Sikh volunteers giving away food were threatened and ‘had to scarper for our own safety’.[2]

All the key figures are far-right and most have no genuine interest in queer communities:

‘Annie Greek‘ (Ioanna Photiou): The main organiser of their Bristol demo, hilariously spotted on twitter[3] saying:
s

‘Tommy English‘ (Tommy Cook): used to be the (mostly one-man) ‘LGBT division’ of the EDL.

Jack Buckby: ex-BNP who stood as a candidate MP in Jo Cox’s area after she was murdered by the far-right.

Ann Marie Waters: so toxic that even UKIP deselected her as a candidate. Writes for Breitbart.

‘Tommy Robinson‘ (Stephen Yaxley-Lennon): former EDL leader. What a lovely guy. Not.

Good middle days, thirds and fifths of communication.
In fact, I, the Master Philo, teacher of the Autonomous School Emiliano Zapata, I am a councilor of the Indigenous Council of Government for Mexico of the National Indigenous Congress.

But no, I did not come to speak about our Indigenous Council of Government, for that is our spokeswoman: Maria de Jesus Patricio.
I just came to confirm that next July 1 and 2 will be held in our territory, there in the Mixteca poblana, the First Meeting of Anti-capitalist Sexual Diversity and will be called Kuilonyotl.Related image
