If you read the likes of the Sun and the Times firstly why and secondly you may believe all Jeremy Corbyn supporting Facebook groups are cesspits of hate.
Trolls like to infiltrate pages and groups for many reasons including they have nothing better to do, they are pathetic, they want to stir things up, they are fifth columnists and more.
But we have to accept that in anger people lash out and sometimes that translates to their online activity.
So let me introduce you to one hell of a hate-filled group called Jeremy Corbyn Watch
Take a look if you want to and be sure to report the page to Facebook as you hastily retreat.
With around 8,000 members it claims to be “observing the Labour Party” and be a “just for fun” page but that is simply misleading.
It is much more than that. It is pure hate.
The creator of this page is unknown. Cowards and bullies online tend to prefer anonymity.
Footage via Alan Sugar, shares re Tommy Robinson, hateful comments and more rings many alarm bells.
Yet this group appears to have stayed off limits to The Times undercover reporter Gabriel Pogrund who used others to infiltrate Corbyn supporting groups over a long period of time and found a few instances of abuse.
I ventured over to Jeremy Corbyn Watch briefly and in a view seconds observed a mass of abuse.
Abuse like this shown below, and kudos to John Robe who was equally shocked by what he saw.
Will the mainstream media share this story?
We will share it with them and ask you do the same.
Let’s see just how serious they are about removing social media hate.

Lord Sugar you should be fired from Twitter
Jeremy Corbyn supporter looks back at this week
You know it is funny what you find online and sometimes even more so what you find lurking on your computer.
All the recent nastiness and mud-slinging aimed at Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn and his supporters has been many things.
To those of us labelled hard left trots, a rabble and worse it has been challenging to say the very least.
To people cut off from U.K. politics by choice or not it must give the impression we are a band of monsters but we are not.
Take a look at the image above. A young Tory on a Facebook group called “Jeremy Corbyn is a dirty old man!”
Take a look at the list below and you will quickly realise Cllr Munro cannot use the excuse someone added me and I did not know.
Said councillor was happily adding people to the group.
That group may or may not still be active on Facebook. With so many people reporting the group it could have been taken down by Facebook.
It did not make an issue of The Times but we thought it fair to give it a share in light of recent events.
It is or was a closed group I think that you join to take part.
Some closed groups that are Jeremy Corbyn supporting apparently were infiltrated by trolls working for a Times journalist Gabriel Pogrund. Who knows if some actually posted click-bait posts and comments to get a response?
It could be though they found some real abuse as all Facebook groups face a tough time keeping abuse free.
I did not infiltate such a nasty group as Jeremy Corbyn is a Dirty Old man. That group by the was renamed from much worse following complaints.
But this old retired NHS worker is computer savvy.
Unless a group settings are totally locked down it is easy to see the list of members.
I acutally found the information having seen this nasty group on Facebook with some shocking posts visible and trying to see who was behind it.
Social media is not abuse free and it is not simply a Labour Party issue.
