“Never stop speaking out, never accept the distortions, never accept the lies & never give up”
Try chucking a banana onto the pitch at a football match when a black player appears and see the BBC’s reaction….just a laugh, just a bit o’banter? Think not.
Try putting on an anti-English advert for the Six Nations and the BBC thinks that’s all just a bit of a laugh, so much of a laugh that Emma Barnett wheeled in not one, but two comedians to tell us how stupid we all are to get upset…just a bit of banter innit?! Poshboy Jack Whitehall told us it was all a joke and that people just love taking offence, especially if it is the BBC. Welsh comedian [guess what he thinks] said he wasn’t offended [uhhh??…He’s Welsh, why would he be offended at insulting the English?]..the problem, he went on, was just some self-righteous do-gooder complaining…it was the lunatic fringe kicking in, but it was just great banter.
Emma Barnett thought maybe we are getting more easily offended now. Maybe Barnett will have our national treasure, comedian Lenny Henry, telling us a bit of banana chucking is just great banter…people are so easily offended these days.
I await with interest the BBC’s trailer for its next programme on Islam, sure to be in the pipeline [along with 21 other such programmes]…will we have Christians being asked ‘What’s good about Islam’ and looking bemused and lost for words? Doubt that.
The problem with the advert is not the advert in itself but the BBC’s hypocrisy…and its usual default position of thinking it is OK to be racist to white people, or English people, or to attack Christianity, or to smear Leave voters as stupid whilst not applying the same standards to other races, religions or political groups.
