THis is how Labour left work. @callmemrfister wishes not only that his right to abuse women on behalf of the Shadow Chancellor be protected, but that women do not injure his identity by describing it as abuse.
THis is a very dangerous reflex. Essentially @callmemrfister has been encouraged to place an individual at the core of his political identity, so that whatever a political party do, he will abuse anyone who objects. When John McDonnell uses words like ‘social murder’ it means that @callmemrfister will have justification for this. Many men don’t draw the line at internet abuse, and many men do this offline. Which is why when John Mcdonnell incites violence it’s a problem.
What we learned in the twentieth century, was that creating an identity for yourself as inherently good justifies appalling actions. Only through reflection on the power you exercise can you address inequality.
I have to be driven from the public sphere because the identity that @callmemrfister has adopted is false. When your identity is attached to nothing, you lash out to protect it. Its at the core of much domestic abuse and the violence women face from men. He lashed out at me because he is supporting a political leader upholding welfare cuts that even made Iain Duncan Smith sick and a woman on benefits discussing it is aproblem. So he will abuse women on benefits and drive them out of the public sphere to protect a powerful man. He can’t admit this to himself so he has to try and get my twitter account shut down., Because if he makes me go away it means its not true that this is what he does. This is why Corbynism is so dangerous. Men like @callmemrfister. Me being booted off twitter for 6 days does not change what this is.
