Corbynistas today mocked a Labour Jewish MP for saying a disciplinary probe into her ‘anti-Semite’ jibe at Jeremy Corbyn made her feel like a Jew in Nazi Germany.
Dame Margaret Hodge, who lost family in the Holocaust, said learning she was under investigation after the encounter made her think ‘as if they were coming for me’.
But she has faced an onslaught of derision from Mr Corbyn’s supporters on Twitter who have posted outlandish comparisons to mock her.
The users, including an aide to the Labour MP and Corbyn ally Laura Pidcock, have made the hashtag #HodgeComparisons trend on Twitter.
They compared escaping from a jammed toilet to Nelson Mandela’s release from prison and pulling weeds from their garden with the First World War trenches.
