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.
(Below more abuse aimed at Mr Corbyn on Facebook though we have no idea who the abusers are this time)
Op-ed: According to political pundits Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell wrote the Labour briefing piece reproduced on our website a week before it was published.
He has since retracted the article.
It transpires it was written ahead of the two by-elections and on the back of tired old wealthy Labour Party grandees spouting divisive drivel and receiving a great deal of mainstream media air time.
The timing of publishing the Labour Briefing piece was not good but many party members will know there is at least a ring of truth to it.
Watching the BBC Daily politics Monday it was same trash different day as Jeremy Corbyn's Labour Party was put under the spotlight and trashed.
Mr McDonnell is being portrayed as creating division when Corbyn has asked for unity due to the timing of the Labour Briefing post.
But ahead of the by-elections we had Tony Blair asking people to rise up, Lord Peter Mandelson saying he is working every day to undermine Corbyn and old Bitterite spin doctors John McTernan and Alastair Campbell stirring the pot.
They received positive media attention yet Mr McDonnell has one article published and all hell is let loose.
Methinks they protesteth a little too much.
There have been enemies within the Labour Party working against Corbyn, the party, the membership and the electorate for some time.
That is not fake news but fact.
After all fat cat Mandelson put himself on record as an enemy within.
Is there any wonder Mr McDonnell felt it was time to vent his frustration in an article?
Perhaps he was taking a leaf out of so-called Bitterites books?
Fake news perpetuated by publications such as the Telegraph, The Daily Mirror, The Independent and the Daily Mail.
The jungle drums have spoken so it must be true.
But once again the so-called 'real news' is lies.
Where did the story start?
Was it the Daily Mail fondly called the Daily Fail?
"The Opposition leader left the party as MPs insulted him at the noisy booze-up, the Mail on Sunday reported" reports the Daily Mirror playing that childhood Christmas party game pass the parcel.
Certainly some played their boozy best at the PLP Christmas Party Tuesday but back to Ms Philips who "later told the Mirror Mr Corbyn left the Christmas do long before MPs sang the Blair anthem, had his coat on for ages and "nobody was annoyed"."
Sadly though it plays into the hands of the opposition.
If the Labour Party is on an election footing it needs to be careful how it acts even at in-house Christmas parties.
Remember fake news sources are watching and waiting and there will always be some pathetic enemy within looking for a divisive opportunity.
So Sunday, five days after the event, the mainstream media run the story presumably as stories relating to Mr Corbyn, be they real, or fake, sell papers.
Jeremy Corbyn had a packed events diary Tuesday and the "office juniors Christmas Party" was just one event.
Daily Mirror - http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/jeremy-corbyn-walks-out-karaoke-9477514 Their title says REPORT CLAIMS meaning it is probably fake but we will run with it anyways.
All things Corbyn
