PM….

I rarely listen to the BBC “PM’ drive programme but had the misfortune to do so earlier this evening.

The BBC choose to repeat renewed violence in Gaza in the following way; “Israel has carried out attacks on Gaza after accusing Hamas of violating the cease-fire but Hamas denied firing them”…got it?  Cause and effect, eh BBC?

Next there was a remarkable item on the Ferguson riots in Illinois. There were two commentators invited on to discuss. Esther Armah  and Gabby Silverman. Ester was race hustling on a mega scale drawing connections all the way back to Slavery, damning white racism and painting Michael Brown as a latter day saint.  Listen here at 10minutes in. Quite incredible reverse racism from Armah. I noted that on the Today programme, slavery was also trotted out as the core reason for the riots. Nothing to do with opportunistic thugs seeking to loot and cause damage. No way.

Then, a heated debate on why David Cameron is on holiday. The big issues.

Fair and balanced, as ever.

    I don’t know why people speak of reverse racism. Historically more white Europeans were slaves than black Africans. The very word ‘slave’ comes from Slav.

      OK, I went off on a tangent there. I’d only just woken up.

      Still, the point I should have made is that racism is racism. It is just as ugly when whites are pre-judged by blacks as when whites pre-judge blacks. That said, I’m A-OK with pre-judging people according to the culture they identify themselves with. And I’d be leery around anyone who identified as ‘gangsta’ or ‘nigga’.

      Like black folks have reclaimed the “N” word, like the way gay folks have claimed “Fag”, old whitey should reclaim “Slave”….it’s our right!

    Modern day slavery.
    This type is acceptable to Al Beeb of course.

    And this poisonous drivel pumped out day in day out for the last 25-30 years on this and all outlets. No wonder the country is in the state it’s in. A critical mass have had their entire world view formed by propaganda masquerading as news.

    Accepting PM’s analysis of ‘Ferguson’ at face value, surely the obvious conclusion is that different people just don’t get on.
    The Americans have had the best part of 150 years to ‘get along’ and still haven’t got there, (despite Saint Obama!). Yet the BBC continues to push for mass immigration and ‘cohesive’ communities of Muslims etc. who most certainly DON’T share ‘our’ values, (they are part of ‘us’ now, of course, so ‘their’ values are ‘ours’ now in the wonderful world of cultural relativism).

    Armah and Silverman were both speaking from the same side with the faux appearance of being two sides of the argument . Each trying to be more outrageous than each other. The boy killed By Zimmerman was ‘only going to buy sweets for his little brother (with no mention of them being the type that are drug related) and Brown in Fergusson was just on his way to his grandmother, I kid you not. Obama as an Afro American president should have been doing more for black people (so who is judging a man by the colour of his skin, both Mr Webb on Today and Mr Eddie Mair on PM?). The whole item was outrageous.

    Every year at Pessach (Passover) the Jews recite We were slaves in Egypt but now we are free. I guess the ‘blame prior slavery for our sins’ excuse has a use-by date.
