A FORCE FOR GOOD

BBC World Service journalist Piers Scholfield asks a question about Super PACs:


What’s “a force for good” in the eyes of a BBC World Service journalist? The link takes you to this article about a Vermont-based Super PAC called “Americans For a Better Tomorrow, Today”. Here’s what they stand for:

The group wants to highlight the issues and values brought into focus by the Occupy movement, including progressive tax policies, clean energy development, the protection of collective bargaining rights and a system that doesn’t routinely graduate college students with $100,000 of student loan debt.

Lefty values = force for good. The BBC’s coverage of this year’s presidential election is going to be a doozy, isn’t it?

Oh btw, remember Jude “I love him” Machin? She’s still got it bad:

      Maybe they ought to do a programme about how almost the entire academic establishment (and especially university students) in Germany supported the National Socialist Party.

      They could also do a programme about how the Nazi Party took over broadcasting in Germany in order to promote correct political opinions.

      They might mention that one of the leading philosophers of the Nazi Party (Heidegger) is practically compulsory in Leftist “Cultural Studies” courses at British universities.

      They could then do a programme about the Institute of Marxist studies in Frankfurt, and their impact upon thinking about Multi-Culturalism.

      Or maybe not……….

      So if I get this right he advocates the people removing power from their leaders ? so where is his evidence that this has ever worked non violently ? he takes a lot of credit but few of those involved in the uprisings he claims he started say they have even heard of him!
      also the removal on public consent only works maybe on your government not the one next-door who’s  bombing your city’s !

    Vacuity (n).

    va·cu·i·ty

    n. pl. vac·u·i·ties  

    1. Total absence of matter; emptiness.

    2. An empty space; a vacuum.

    3. Total lack of ideas; emptiness of mind.

    4. Something, usually a Twitter remark made by an off-duty BBC producer or functionary, that is pointless or inane: a conversation full of vacuities.

    Vacuity, thy name is Jude Machin.

    Jude (Judith?) Machin has form. Seems the NHS is not alone in employing “Pilgrims”, the bBC is now employing full-time Obama organisers under the guise of “reporters”

      Gotta love twitter.

      One presumes, dsiclaimer absent, all her views are therefore those of her employer?

      What event is she in? Synchronised uniquess? Or the double standard jump (it’s easier if you are a twin)?
