The BBC…Recruiting for the Islamic State?

 

 

Islam in America 1

 

Pope Francis: ‘Idea of conquest is inherent to the soul of Islam’

 

 

The BBC has just broadcast a piece of Muslim agitprop that would not look out of place on an Islamic State website intent on whipping up Muslim anger and discontent in order to feed the narrative of Muslims under siege and an Islam under attack by the West.  The BBC is feeding the recruitment of Muslims to terrorist organisations with a hugely dishonest film that is deliberately shaped to mislead and feed into the Muslim grievance culture that leads to ‘radicalisation’.

The title of the film, United States of Hate: Muslims Under Attack, immediately tells us what picture the BBC intends to paint..it is a picture that extremist groups like Cage and MPACUK and the MCB would be proud of.

America is, the BBC informs us, in the grip of ‘anti-Muslim hysteria’, naturally it is all Trump’s fault, and we have to ask, apparently, ‘Is it normal to label a whole communtiy as terrorists?‘  The BBC of course has no problem labelling the whole of America (sans Muslim) as irrational, Islamophobic hate-mongers in this film.  And does ‘America’ label a ‘whole community’, and does it label them ‘terrorists’ or just radicals who seek to impose Islam upon the US?

Who does the BBC get to represent ‘America’?  They chose the most extreme group they could find, a tiny group of protestors, maybe numbering 5 in total, who confront Muslims outside Mosques and who carry guns…as self-protection…the likelihood they will be attacked is high.  In contrast the BBC puts up a smiley, clean-cut Imam who is all peace, love and tolerance…at least whilst the cameras are on him….but if you listen to his ‘message’ you realise he has the usual passive-aggression and heavily promotes the idea of Muslims as victims under attack…so quietly stirring up tension and conflict whilst appearing to talk peace and tolerance.

He tells us that Muslims suffer systematic dehumanisation by the Media, commentators and reckless politicians.  On his phone he has an image of a black man, Allen Brooks, who was lynched in 1906 and he exploits this image saying it is a portent of things to come for Muslims in America…he pushes the idea that Muslims will be lynched and that essentially Muslims will suffer a new Holocaust.  As said, hardly a message of peace and tolerance…more Malcolm X than MLK.

Muslim community leaders such as this Imam know all the buttons to press to get the liberals to jump to their tune.  The BBC has offered itself up as the platform for Islamists to exploit at will happily supporting their line about foreign policy and Muslims being the victims of government anti-terror policies (go figure why)..but not all are so easily fooled..or so willingly fooled as BBC journalists are…from the Mirror…

WE MUST NOT GIVE IN TO MUSLIM BLACKMAIL

AS the country vexes itself over how to deal with the radicalisation of British-born Muslim youths, it’s revealing to know some of their leaders believe they have the answer.

The introduction of Sharia Law in Britain along with important religious days in the Muslim calendar becoming public holidays for followers of the faith should do the trick, or so claims the secretary general of the Union of Muslim Organisations in the UK and Ireland.

As Dr Syed Aziz Pasha says: “If you give us religious rights we will be in a better position to convince young people that they are being treated equally along with other citizens.”

This sounds perilously close to blackmail. Thus far the British people have shown exemplary tolerance in the face of terrorist threats.

Muslims are in an even greater state of denial than the rest of us about terrorism: “It’s hyped up”, “The government hates Muslims and so does Tony Blair” and “Muslims feel like there is an underlying agenda against us,” are a selection of comments from Walthamstow in East London, the neighbourhood targeted by anti-terror raids last week.

Anyone would think they’d forgotten the banners at a demo, just a few miles down the road, last February which read: “Europe You’ll Come Crawling When Mujahedeen Come Roaring”.

It’s unfashionable to say it, but some of us are beginning to find the Muslim victim culture a little tiresome.

And Dr Pasha’s words have not helped. If you were cynical you might even believe he was trying to provoke a fight.

Ditto the group of prominent Muslims who penned an open letter suggesting Muslim youths are alienated by Britain’s foreign policy, so it should be changed.

Why exactly? To placate a handful of home-grown terrorists and terrorist sympathisers?

In other words the rest of us can only be safe if THEY get a foreign policy that suits them. The Mafia would call this extortion. Give us what we want and we’ll do our best to stop the baddies blowing you up.

Nor should we feel it necessary to beat ourselves up because willing recruits, who happen to be born here, have signed up to become human bombs.

Some people, John Reid reminded us last week “just don’t get” the seriousness of the threat facing the West.

What will it take to understand? Ten planes destroyed and thousands of innocents dead while the family of the perpetrators weep into the cameras and say, “he wouldn’t do a thing like that”.

Oh yes he would. And believe me, he will.

Muslim terrorism and Islamist supremacy…the result of Islamophobia?

The good, tolerant, peace-loving Imam proclaims that Muslim violence has nothing to do with Islam and Muslims…it is the fault of the Islamphobes...they do the work of the Islamic State in promoting an idea of the Clash of Civilisations…not sure Islam can be described as ‘civilised’ in this day and age.  Apparently Islamophobes create mass Islamic terrorism.  So complain about 9/11 and you’re creating terrorism by upsetting Muslms who think Islam is being attacked…never mind 9/11 was an Islamic attack on America, on the West and its culture, values and beliefs…a declaration of war.

And Allen Brooks?  Does his lynching represent the heart of America?  Not really.  The due legal process was being carried out and he was being protected by the Police from the mob.  Why was there a mob?  Because he was accused of abducting and sexually abusing a 3 year old girl.  Not as if similar mobs don’t happen in the UK today for such suspects.  The mob threw him through a upper-floor court window,  which probably killed him, and then strung his body up from a gantry across the street.

He was not lynched because he was a blackman…it was because of the supposed crime he committed…so to jump from that analogy and use it to suggest any Muslim walking down the street will suddenly be jumped upon and lynched is deliberately dishonest and intended to be inflammatory and sensationalist…The Imam intends to create an atmosphere of fear amongst his own community that he can take advantage of as well as feeding into the Liberal guilt that he knows will result in the surrender of evermore power and influence to the likes of him and an ever greater role for Islam in America.

The BBC laps this message up unquestioningly.  However the message from the anti-Islam protestors is scorned.  As they stood protesting on the sidewalk and some car-drivers tooted their horns in support the BBC’s man said ‘I am shocked by the support of the passers-by….this is the silent majority making themselves heard.’   Well, no, it’s just a few car-drivers…but yet again the BBC pushes the notion that the ‘whole of America’ hates Muslims…and all without any reason.

As he spoke to a woman who organised the Muhammed Art Exhibition where two Muslims tried to shoot people he exclaimed ‘Do you realise how offensive such an art exhibition would be to Muslims?’  Apparently 9/11 and all that is not offensive to Americans, Americans aren’t allowed to be angry….but offend Muslims and, the BBC seems to be suggesting (ala Tim Wilcox), you can be jusitifiably killed.

There is no attempt to examine the case of those who raise doubts about Islam and the intentions of Muslim lobby groups in America.  It’s not hard to find good reason for their doubts….though the BBC doesn’t even mention 9/11 in this film or the many other examples of Islamic terrorism in the US…limiting itself to a mention of San Bernardino…though this of course was done by non-Muslim extremists who don’t in any way represent the Muslim community.  Got it?

One question might be ‘Just how many American Muslims cheered 9/11 and subsequent attacks such as Fort Hood?‘  Many cheered 9/11 in Britain, in France many cheered the Paris attacks and America and the West is hated by Muslims worldwide.

In 1996 Osama Bin Laden declared war on America and American civilians.

We know that the Muslim Brotherhood is intent on Islamising America (and the world)…

The Brotherhood’s 29 likeminded “organizations of our friends” that shared the common goal of dismantling American institutions and turning the U.S. into a Muslim nation. These “friends” were identified by Akram and the Brotherhood as groups that could help convince Muslims “that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands … so that … God’s religion [Islam] is made victorious over all other religions.”

We know that the Islamic State has made serious inroads into the US…

The Islamic State’s suspected inroads into America

Federal prosecutors have charged 85 men and women around the country in connection with the Islamic State. So far, 33 have been convicted. Men outnumber women in those cases by about 7 to 1. The average age of the individuals is 27. One is a minor. The FBI says that, in a handful of cases, it has disrupted plots targeting U.S. military or law enforcement personnel.

We know that there are many Muslim organisations that are fronts for Islamist activity…

Islamist Organizations in America

Islamic extremists have developed a sophisticated network of interconnected organizations across America. The following are profiles of these organizations and the people behind them. The common thread among these organizations is their ideology of Political Islam which aspires to implement sharia governance and to establish a global Islamic caliphate.

We know that supposed ‘moderate reformer’, Tariq Ramadan, is in fact an Islamist from the Muslim Brotherhood (which he never admits) and that he has a message for Western Muslims…Muslims must not adapt to the West, the West must adapt to Islam.  The BBC naturally is onboard with Ramadan’s message.

Looking at all that you can see why many Americans may have questions about the presence of Muslims and Islamic groups in America…just what are they aiming to achieve?

The film-maker does in fact broach the subject…out of 55 minutes he gives over a whole 3 minutes to ‘exploring’ the Islamist cause…or does he?  The unnamed Islamist is allowed to justify his Jihad without challenge to his narrative…it is the same one of course that the BBC peddles….Muslims are victims of Western foreign policy (so often Muslim friendly), innocent Muslim civilians are being killed (hmm…the vast, vast majority killed by Jihadists just like the speaker), the West supports corrupt dictators (and gets rid of them….Saddam and Gaddafi) and some of his friends were killed by drone strikes (friends?  As in terrorists?).  He states that Sharia is the way forward for America and that Jihad is in the Koran and is also the way forward.  Despite that the BBC man finishes with the conclusion that the Jihadist denounces all violence.  Nothing like a bit of wilful blindness.  Then it was back to the ‘orrible Rednecks.

The film-maker deliberately misleads viewers by producing supposed examples of how Muslims are being persecuted in the US.  The first was the infamous Clockboy whom we were told was wrongly arrested for bringing his science project to school….firstly it wasn’t a school science project, it was his own little project and it looked exactly like a bomb…and he ignored advice not to show it to teachers…he even set the alarm off in class.  One might suspect this was a deliberate scheme to get himself arrested and then shout to the world about Muslims being persecuted.

The BBC then told us that a Muslim family had been targeted in a hate crime, killed by a man who hated Muslims, when in fact we know that the killings were the result of a neighbourhood dispute about parking and that the man had frequently threatened other, non-Muslim, neighbours.

Why does the BBC present these cases as evidence of Muslims being targeted when that is just not the case?  The BBC is fabricating a story and a narrative of Muslim victimhood that feeds the Islamist’s own recruitng narrative and ends up in more terrorism.

The BBC has spent years reinforcing the idea of Muslims and Islam under attack and has bolstered that narrative with the constant presence on the BBC of Islamists from the likes of Cage, MPACUK, the MCB and of course Mehdi Hasan and disturbingly has sought to undermine the British war effort and tried to back the Islamist attempts to deligitimise the government’s anti-terror programme Prevent.  This is the BBC that told us the Boston bombing was the work of white supremacists, that the massacre of US soldiers at Fort Hood by a Muslim was a ‘senseless tragedy’ unrelated to Islam, that the rapes and sex abuse in Cologne were the result of a right-wing plot, that Jews in Europe could justifiably be killed because of whatever Israel does, that Christians are thriving in the Muslim world, that there is no problem with immigration into Europe of people who have a totally different belief system and values to the West, this is the BBC that told us the Trojan Horse plot was hoax, the result of paranoia, Islamophobia and racism…and that the investigations found no cause for concern….and failed to reveal that the MCB, which is the most representative body for Muslims in Britain, was at the heart of this plot to Islamise British schools.  This is the BBC which produces endless programmes that are intended to tell us of the brilliance of Islam and just how wonderful Muslims are, or how under attack they are.  We have Anne Robinson dressed in a Burkha roaming the streets of London…presumably to show us how much Muslim women suffer abuse and we have a programme on the Silk Road which you might think would concentrate on China but in fact the first programme started off waxing lyrical about Muslim influences in Venice….and of course was scathing about the malign actions of westerners along the route.  This is the BBC that, on the first anniversary of 7/7, arranged for a Muslim with a backpack to walk through the preparations for the memorial at a London Train station and then accused people of Islamophobia for staring at the man…this was supposedly an example of how innocent Muslims are treated with suspicion….one year after bombs went off in train stations, bombs carried in backpacks by Muslims….and the BBC wonders why people were scared?

The BBC, still a hotbed of marxists and trots intent on undermining the West and selling us out to whichever enemy is nearest and most likely to succeed?  You might get that impression if you ever started to view the BBC’s output as a whole and saw the message being peddled.

The BBC, a mouthpiece for the likes of the Islamic State?  In the end, yes, Lord Hall Hall leads an media organisation that cheerleads for a terrorist organisation that literally threatens the world.

Dominoes and Liberation

 

The people against the elite.

 

One of the reasons put forward for people not to vote for Brexit was that it could result in the disintegration of the EU as other countries would likely follow and demand a referendum for themselves.

Now isn’t that interesting?  Many people, the majority in most countries, would ask for a referendum on the EU and the likes of Cameron, and the Eurocrats who wish to stay in charge unelected though they are, want to deny that chance to all those Europeans.

Talk about an out of touch elite that arrogantly ignores the People, talk about a democratic deficit, talk about EU ‘fascism’….just not on the BBC….that other ‘out of touch’ elite.

From the Financial Times:

Brexit vote set to fuel more referendums

Britain’s referendum is widely expected to trigger a domino effect of similar votes on EU membership, with a significant majority of French and Italian voters wanting to take the issue to the ballot box.

An Ipsos poll in nine leading EU states found that almost half of people thought that next month’s Brexit vote posed a risk of contagion. In Germany, Italy, Sweden and Hungary, more than 50 per cent of voters agreed that other countries would follow Britain’s lead, if it voted to quit the 28-member bloc.

The poll also found that 58 per cent of Italians and 55 per cent of the French already wanted their own referendums on EU membership, regardless of the result on June 23.

 The potential repercussions of Brexit are a subject of intense concern for European officials, who fear that Britain’s departure would only exacerbate the increasingly acrimonious disunity witnessed during the eurozone and migration crises.

Also of note…whilst all of Dave’s chums and those with a vested interest in keeping the EU club going everyday folk in other countries aren’t so pessimistic…or rather don’t indulge in the scaremongering about the economy…

While 51 per cent feared a British departure would harm the EU economy, only 36 per cent thought that it would hobble Britain’s economy.
Only 26 per cent of Americans and Australians surveyed thought that Brexit would damage the UK economy.
To gauge the effect of a potential Brexit on Britain’s international standing, the pollsters also conducted surveys in Canada, the US, Australia, India and South Africa. A clear majority of respondents in those countries said that the UK’s departure from the EU would make no difference to diplomatic relations.
 

So vote ‘stay’ if you want to keep the unelected in power and to enable them to keep filling their bank accounts with Euro plunder and to keep their hands on the reins of power which they can use to crush all dissent.

The Grand EU Project must go on!

 

Or

Britain ‘could liberate Europe again’ by voting for Brexit and sparking populist revolution

Britain could “liberate Europe” for a second time in a century by voting for Brexit on June 23, triggering a “patriotic spring” across the continent and an outpouring of populist discontent against Brussels, Geert Wilders, the right-wing Dutch populist, has claimed.

In an interview with The Sunday Telegraph, Mr Wilders – a fiercely nationalist, anti-Islamic politician whose Party for Freedom is currently topping the polls in the Netherlands – said that the populist  “genie was now out of the bottle”, and could never be put back in.

“Like in the 1940’s, once again Britain could help liberate Europe from another totalitarian monster, this time called ‘Brussels’. Again, we could be saved by the British,” he said in his heavily fortified office in The Hague where an oil painting Winston Churchill and a Telegraph front page of Margaret Thatcher hang on the walls.

If people see that a country can leave, and the lights do not go out, there is not a war, and a country does not go bankrupt, but even flourishes. If Britain proves that this theory can become a reality, it would have an enormous effect.”

 

Not sure the BBC will be reporting enthusiastically on that subject.

BeLeave in an Independent Britain

 

Labour’s Hugh Gaitskell in October 1962, predicted the truth five decades ago….

‘Of course, the Tories have been indulging in their usual double-talk. When they go to Brussels they show the greatest enthusiasm for political union.

‘When they speak in the House of Commons they are most anxious to aver that there is no commitment whatever to any political union.’

Shouldn’t the BBC be making far more of these statements whenever Osborne or Cameron make their apocalyptic claims?….

Reform EU or Britain quits – George Osborne lays down ultimatum

George Osborne will today deliver a stark warning to Britain’s European partners that the UK will leave the EU unless it embarks on whole-scale economic and political reform.

 

British PM Cameron lays out terms, warns Britain could still leave EU

Britain would “think again” over its EU membership if no deal is reached.

 

What of all those warnings from the IMF and the Bank Of England’s Mark Carney and the Treasury?

The Treasury is of course George Osborne’s own plaything…hardly likely to put out statements that the Boss doesn’t approve of…if Osborne wanted to Brexit you can be assured that the Treasury would parrot that line…its ‘analysis’, as the BBC likes to call it, would say whatever Osborne wanted it to say.

What about the Canadian Carney?  He is Osborne’s boy...hand-picked by him to take over the Bank of England..

Osborne personally rang leading City journalists to sell the appointment of the first foreigner to be picked to lead the Bank of England since its foundation in 1694….It is a susceptibility to hero worship that led Osborne to become the first western finance minister to back the appointment of the elegant former French finance minister Christine Lagarde as managing director of the International Monetary Fund in 2011.

And…from the lefty Huffington Post…

Labour MP Slams Mark Carney As George Osborne’s ‘Hand-Picked’ Bank Of England Governor

And the Lefty Guardian…

George Osborne got Mark Carney – at the cost of his principles

And the head of the IMF?  George Osborne backed her not once, but twice to lead the IMF….in 2011

George Osborne backs Christine Lagarde to lead IMF

And in January this year, 2016…

George Osborne backs Christine Lagarde for second term at IMF

Osborne’s backing for Lagarde in 2011 was considered a major coup by her supporters along with the support from German finance minister, Wolfgang Schäuble.

Carney and Lagarde owe Osborne and have paid him off handsomely in their support for the remain camp.  Obama’s support comes from a USA that has always backed a single Europe and has secretly funded and backed it from the start….in its own interest.

The BBC is quick to mention that Boris once supported Turkey’s accession into the EU (he is after all descended from Turks) and are not shy about repeating that…not so quick or insistent to tell us that Cameron and Osborne told us we could leave the EU if negotiations for reform didn’t go well (and they didn’t) and that many of the Remain supporters owe Osborne so much.

Any wonder that people suggest this referendum is rigged and will lack legitimacy on a stay vote?  The BBC though seems entirely unconcerned about pressing the issue of Cameron rigging the referendum.

Remain Calm

 

The controversial Vote Leave campaign poster.

 

 

Interesting to see several ‘right-wing’ commentators suggest that the BBC is giving us a balanced view of the EU referendum…and yet it’s just not true.  Certainly there have been many debates and interviews that give the suggestion of balance but comparing them the Remain camp gets an easy ride and the underlying tone of the BBC narrative is pro-Remain…very uncritical of Remain’s claims…such as Brexit will cause a new world war, that Brexit is based on the racist hatred of foreigners or that the economy will plunge off a cliff on Brexit…where is the ‘Reality Check’ on the latest ‘Treasury’ claims?  The BBC pushes those claims as fact…the language used is intended to make them sound credible and authoritative…the ‘treasury analysis’ sounds scientific rather than the obedient regurgitation of the Treasury’s boss’s (ie Osborne) words and Osborne ‘warns’ rather than ‘claims’…altogether more dramatic and intense than a mere ‘claim’.

Charles Moore in the Telegraph suggests that the BBC white paper, or is that the white flag from the government?, was part of a deal, the quid pro quo being the BBC’s unstinting support for the pro-EU side…not sure that’s a good deal as such a stance from the BBC was pretty much guaranteed anyway.  He notes the BBC’s complete lack of interest in the leaked letter that reveals the collusion between Big Business and No10 on the pro-EU campaign….such collusion the right-on BBC would normally be desperate to expose….such as when Murdoch was supposed to be in cahoots with the politicians.  Not now though.

The BBC is though far more rigorous with the Out camp’s claims….such as on the NHS or immigration.  On the Today show we had Nick Robinson exploring the issues (08:08)…he starts off with some voices telling us that the Brexit camp’s claims about Turkey are racist, unrealistic and offensive.  No voices telling us how accurate the concerns really are.  In fact what we got was the BBC’s Chris Morris giving us a very aggressive, anti-Brexit campaign lecture on the ‘facts’ telling us that the claim that there are 76 million Turks is wrong, there are 79 million…the Out camp must check its facts.  Well, a minor point and hardly one of great importance but let’s check the facts with…the BBC…from May this year…

Republic of Turkey

Capital: Ankara

  • Population 74.5 million

Well, it’s not 76 million, but then again the BBC isn’t stating the correct figure of 79 million itself.  Maybe the BBC should check its facts and get its story right Chris.  Morris is stridently trying to imply the Out camp cannot be trusted and is a ramshackle shambles unable to check facts….therefore presumably we must conclude the same about the BBC..and that Morris is biased.

Morris went on to tell us in no uncertain terms that Turkey will never be allowed to join the EU….accept of course the way is being paved and the politicians like Cameron would be more than happy to open the door regardless of what the population of Europe thinks….and regardless of which with visa free travel Turkey may just come to Europe anyway….by the train, car and plane load regardless of what the official status of Turkey is….and in 2014 ‘The UK Foreign Office says it expects Turkey to be ready for membership “in a decade or so”.’

Robinson links it all to the Far Right and suggests that Turkey wouldn’t want to be in  Europe alongside Marie Le Pen…that’s a Turkey ruled by an Islamist dictator involved in violently suppressing the Kurds, who is accused of killing and locking up journalists and who has locked down the country so that any opposition to him his stamped ruthlessly out.  Yes, I can see he wouldn’t feel at home in a fascist Europe run by supposed extremists.

Robinson goes on to imply that the Brexit campaign is in fact empowering said extremists (as the BBC sees them) because it whips up a distrust of politicians and the supposed pillars of society….not something the BBC could ever be accused of as it cheerleads Islamist terrorism, the likes of Corbyn and his cabal of communists, the anti-Establishment Occupy and various anti-Establishment groups such as Cage and Stop the War.

So if we Brexit it is all a Far-Right plot and we’ll get fascism and war across Europe once again.   The BBC is great isn’t it as it totally ignores the rise of the extreme left and the Islamists?…well, not ignore, the BBC, as said, cheerleads for them whilst ignoring any threat from them to a stable, wealthy and peaceful society.

The likelihood is that Turkey will be allowed to join the EU eventually and that the conditions supposedy imposed will be ignored or met to a minimal standard deemed to be ‘acceptable’ and good enough for the politicians to claim they have been met.  Even if this takes a decade it is still an important part of the discussion on the EU…10 years flies by and then what?  We have a massive Muslim country that will have a big influence over how Europe is run and will have a large Muslim population already in place inside Europe to leverage that influence.  There are legitimate concerns over how a Christian, democratic, liberal and progressive Europe will be effected by such a large and influential Muslim population that is rapidly increasing now…in 10 years that may be massively larger due to immigration, not least from Turkey, and a higher Muslim birthrate combined with a very aggressive Islamist lobby that is not averse to using the threat of violence combined with claims of Muslims being victimised to press their own political advantage.

The BBC refuses to contemplate such things preferring instead to suggest, in line with Cameorn and Co, that Brexit will lead to societal collapse and war due to the rise of Fascism.

Balanced coverage?  Hardly.

Memories are made of this

 

 

The BBC continues its long drawn out sneer at those on the political right as John Sergeant on Saturday dismissed Boris (leader of the Out campaign) as a ‘joke’…a joke who won two elections for the Mayor of London in what is essentially a Labour city…not to mention being voted in as an MP.  Some joke.

John Pienaar declared Trump was ‘the problem’ on Sunday  (39 mins) and when told Trump was ‘practical and focussed on the moment’ (and temperamentally much like JFK, Reagan and LBJ…so not the irrational ‘nut job’ the BBC like to portray him as) Pienaar suggested for some reason that ‘you could say the same about a professional assassin’.  Why on earth would you come up with such a comparison unless you were determined to just malign Trump?  Pienaar made sceptical sounds throughout the piece and knew he was doing so as he had to say ‘of course I have no opinion’….before telling us Trump insulted the ‘whole Muslim world’ and that he was ‘the best opponent Clinton could hope for’.   Hmm…apparently Trump leads the polls for the Presidency….so perhaps Pienaar is wrong….just as he was about Miliband ‘leading the political narrative’...

It’s not the headline, and it takes 219 words to get there, but a new Washington Post poll on the presidential race reveals that Republican Donald Trump leads Democrat Hillary Clinton among registered voters 46 percent to 44 percent.

Earlier in the week on the Today programme we had Mishal Husain urging the young voters to get out and vote telling us they will be an important influence in the EU referendum…being more likely to vote to stay in the EU.. she then mentioned the ex-pats who have fled the UK for sunnier climes and who are also likely to vote to stay, given the chance, to stay in the EU…though Husain hesitated and didn’t admit that…as it might seem too much like a pro-EU broadcast….just as the government launches its own campaign to get the same demographic to vote….knowing they are likely to be pro-EU.

Funnily enough the BBC is giving a lot of airtime to Labour man Eddie Izzard who is right now touring the country to get the young to vote…for the EU.  Izzard was on Marr and on Pienaar’s politics…so a double dose of him on Sunday…and no doubt elsewhere on the BBC as well.  Pienaar made no challenge to many of his claims about the benefits of the EU nor his claim that the Out campaign was extremist, racist and based on the hatred of immigrants.

Izzard describes himself as a radical moderate who seems to want a dictatorship…once a leader is elected he must be obeyed and his message strictly adhered to without debate.  Oddly this ‘new politician’ who wants to break the mould speaks the speak and comes up with the usual dodges when challenged..and to be fair to Pienaar he at least questioned Izzard’s one-man state.

Back to John Sergeant and it is interesting to see how fact and political commentator part company as he describes his part in Margaret Thatcher’s downfall.  On Saturday he related his dinner party tale (1min 50) of how Thatcher made him look a fool…telling us that he didn’t hear Peter Sissons’ warning that Thatcher was behind him…but looking at the video Sergeant has already turned around to see her approaching before we hear the warning from Sissons.  Sergeant tells us that the group coming towards him were shouting ‘where is the microphone’ and that they were pushing and shoving and that Bernard Ingham hit him.  Sergeant was baffled he tells us…because he had the microphone, despite the fact that there were the serried ranks of the world’s Press next to him and that he wanted a BBC exclusive.  He claimed that Thatcher knew nothing of the plan to talk to all the journalists…implying that there was plan to talk solely to him….evidence of that?  None.  He tells us Thatcher said she’d go on to the second ballot and then she ‘swept out’.

Well it’s a good dinner party story but as with most such stories it has been embellished and made more exciting in the telling over the years with Sergeant at the centre of things.  The truth is somewhat different as the video actually shows.  Sergeant knew Thatcher was coming out before Sissons warned him, there was no shouting. Ingham did ask ‘where is the microphone’ because there was an ‘official’ microphone on a stand that Thatcher was meant to speak into.  An official did gently move Sergeant aside but only because Sergeant was in the way of that microphone being positioned and Ingham did not ‘hit’ Sergeant merely moving his arm holding his microphone in the way of the official microphone.  Thatcher was quite amiable and did not make a ‘terse’ statement that she would take part in a second ballot before ‘sweeping out‘…she remained to answer several questions….there was no ‘fighting’ as Sergeant suggests.  All in all a very different and less exciting story than the one spun by Sergeant…see for yourself (3:10)…

Lord Hall Hall’s Betrayal of Britain

 

Just as Lord Haw Haw betrayed Britain in favour of Hitler’s European dream it looks like the BBC’s Lord Hall Hall has similarly sold Britain down the river and betrayed the British people in favour of the EU empire as he looks to have stitiched up a deal with Cameron and the Remain campaign.

It looks more and more as if the BBC has done a deal with the government.  In return for a white paper on the BBC’s future that far from being radical and reforming in fact reinforced the BBC’s grip on the media world and allowed it to escape scot-free from any censure or control of its bias the BBC has taken to pumping out unalloyed pro-EU, anti-Brexit propaganda with unashamed regularity.

The BBC’s attacks on Boris Johnson, leader of the out campaign, have been ramped up substantially and little effort is made to explore the issues raised by the Brexit camp in any meaningful way….what for example will be the consequences of staying in the EU when the inevitable ever-closer union and the prospect of being forced into the Euro arise?  That is a major question, possibly the only one that counts, and yet the BBC ducks that awkward question all too often…and where is the BBC’s ‘shocked’ reporting on the stitch-up between Big Business and the Government to promote the Remain campaign….the same companies that are angling for big government contracts?

The BBC has consistently tried to dodge those issues, first by preferring to talk about the splits in the Brexit camp and the different groups pushing the same message.  Marr when interviewing Boris desperately tried to avoid talkng about Europe.  Then the BBC dismisses Boris Johnson’s part in the campaign as a mere stunt intended to put him in line for leadership of the Tory Party and that he doesn’t really want to Brexit and then they claim he is a racist (for quoting the Guardian’s opinion on Obama) and finally (at least up till now) they label him as some lunatic spouting on about Hitler….despite the fact he did not make a comparison between Hitler and the EU, merely saying they both aimed for a single authority over Europe that history proves will never work….he also mentioned in the same breath, the Romans and Napoleon….the BBC ignored that and headlined with ‘Hitler’.

The BBC continues the hatchet job today as it gives the patrician and arrogant Tory wet, Michael Heseltine, the top headline on the Frontpage…

Johnson ‘losing judgement’ – Heseltine

Why does the BBC lead with that insult when it is obviously a very subjective and partisan view from someone who is an ardent pro-EU fanatic?  It’s not news, it’s pure propaganda and the BBC is trumpeting it from the rooftops.

What does Heseltine have to say about Cameron’s wild claims about Brexit causing a third world war, or that Putin and ISIS would be cheerleading for Brexit, or the fact that Cameron only a couple of months ago was threatening to leave the EU himself if he didn’t get his substantial reforms (which he did not…in fact he surrendered to the EU, giving up more than he got in return)?

Laura Kuenssberg has always tried to push the ‘Boris wants to be leader’ line and claims he is being dishonest about his motives…on what proof?  None.  This is the BBC making stuff up.  Lying.  Boris has always been sceptical about the EU.

Kuenssberg doesn’t give us analysis, she merely relays Heseltine’s words to us as if they were fact…

This criticism will sting because even though Boris Johnson insists it is not the case, many of his Tory colleagues believe his calculation to join the Out campaign was entirely because he wants to be the next leader of his party.

For Lord Heseltine, who of course had similar ambitions but was thwarted in the end, to suggest his decision and subsequent behaviour will in fact kill his chances will really hurt.

That’s not journalism, that’s just gossip…and what about his ‘subsequent behaviour’?  Kuenssberg casually insinuates  that this behaviour is somehow wrong…and yet Boris has said and done nothing that any normal person without a vested interest in getting a Remain vote in the bag would suggest was wrong or incorrect….and indeed both the Guardian and the BBC have said exactly the same things in the past…and yet now, somehow, they are taboo.  Funny that.  Indeed in the programme mentioned below the BBC claims that a bloodthirsty Christian crusade into Eastern Euope was designed to create a united Europe…..is the BBC claiming that the EU is similar to a bloodthirsty crusade just as it claims Boris said the EU’s aims for a single Europe were somehow like Hitler’s?

The BBC treated us to the final part of its less than subtle pro-EU superstate programme, Europeans…the roots of identity…..

What’s really shaped Europeans’ identity? Historian Margaret MacMillan visits Estonia, exploring how a tiny Estonian nation has dramatised the question of where exactly Europe is…… And she’ll see how new kinds of history – through DNA analysis for example – are revealing why Europeans are such an extraordinary mix of languages, cultures, and migrations.

A blatant attempt to make you believe that there has always been a ‘common European identity’…not just geographic or say a loose one based upon Christianity but an actual pan -European identity that made us virtually into one big state…along with some pro-multiculturalism and migration patter…complete bollocks of course….and a complete misuse of licence fee payers’ money, used as it is to peddle a very one-sided view of history in order to promote the EU and the Remain campaign.

Lord Hall Hall is putting on a show for his political masters.  They are certainly getting their white paper’s worth.  Bet the BBC are glad they kept Whittingdale’s dalliances with a drug addicted prostitute under wraps for so long….such tact has paid off handsomely.

Muslim Homophobia

 

 

Whilst the BBC has consistently attacked Donald Trump for his idea that there should be some control over which Muslims can be allowed into the US until it is worked out who poses a threat, and yesterday the BBC repeatedly quoted Cameron’s insults towards Trump on this subject (Cameron has a habit of being arrogant and sneering towards those he disagrees with, and whilst normally the BBC would rise up in horror at such ‘Flashman’ behaviour from the Eton educated hooray henry it show no sign of that here…nor when Cameron mocked Farage’s name at PMQs…imagine if he’d said the same about a Muslim).

The BBC (The very diverse and sensitive to others’ culture and lifestyle BBC) however hasn’t even bothered to report this so far…

Muslim states block 11 LGBT groups from attending UN Aids meeting

A group of 51 Muslim states has blocked 11 gay and transgender organizations from attending a high-level meeting at the United Nations next month on ending Aids, sparking a protest by the US, Canada and the EU.

Egypt wrote to the president of the 193-member general assembly on behalf of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation to object to the participation of the 11 groups. It did not give a reason in the letter, which Reuters has seen.

Samantha Power, US ambassador to the UN, wrote to the general assembly president, Mogens Lykketoft, and said the groups appeared to have been blocked for involvement in lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender advocacy.

“Given that transgender people are 49 times more likely to be living with HIV than the general population, their exclusion from the high-level meeting will only impede global progress in combating the HIV/Aids pandemic,” Power wrote.

 

I’m sure the BBC are working in the story right now, just making sure they’ve got the facts right…or is it yet again another example of BBC ‘reporting’ where hiding Muslim intolerance trumps all other groups in the BBC pecking order?  Although Gays or Blacks are on the BBC ‘protected list’ their interests are always subject to being over-ridden by Muslim concerns.  Muslims can essentially be as racist or violent or intolerant as they like and get a free pass from the BBC…even if the victims are black or gay….Christians are of course way, way down the list….and don’t even mention Israelis.

I wonder what the new, Muslim, Emir of London has to say about this issue at the UN.  He had an awful lot to say about Trump…and yet nothing so far on this….then again his Twitter feed only became full of jolly pictures of him at synagogues and churches when he was on the election stump so can we really expect him to be genuinely concerned about such things…his Trump theatrics are just that…designed to get the cheap headlines and some ‘street-cred’ with the extremsists he knocks about with so often…in his role as ‘hooman rights lawyer’ of course…or is that a lawyer who uses human right’s legislation to his own advantage rather than to defend ‘human rights’ per se?  The latter I suspect….just how many white, non-Muslim, non ‘extremist’, human rights cases has he taken on?

BIASED TO THE CORE…

I wanted to draw your attention to this article, written by my Twitter friend Peter Thompson. If you enjoy it, drop him a tweet of encouragement at @TheRedRag. He asks all the right questions.
