MISSING WORDS.

I was listening to an item on the BBC “Today” programme this morning concerning the missing children of Bradford. Essentially this relates to the disappearance of mostly teenage girls who it seems have been forced into marriages with Pakistan featuring heavily in the story as the destination for these unfortunates. However at no point did the BBC see fit to point out that this problem is one that is inextricably linked with British Muslims and instead it postures that “many minorities”could be involved. Yes, they could be, but they are not. The smug Keith Vaz was then interviewed and he was quick to point out that this should not be looked upon as a Muslim problem but a broader societal one. Rubbish. Could the BBC not find anybody who was prepared to come on-air and explain that forced marriages, like “honour” killings, are all part of the rich cultural tapestry that Islam has brought into the UK? Why does it shy away from stating the obvious? It KNOWS that many of these children are sent back to Pakistan and it KNOWS that this is part of Muslim family arrangements. Why can it not just state that?

    This is another story about Bradford, it’s a true one, not taken from the BBC’s ‘White’ season; it’s about a headmaster and ‘multiculturalism’:

  2. I’ve just read the link to Abi Morgan’s reading material. She is so ‘right-on’ that I thought she was takin’ the p*ss. Seriously, these lefties are a joke which more of us are getting, and getting wise to. Now why doesn’t she go and live in a nice, peaceful muslim country? Answer – because there aren’t any and I’ll bet that Abi Morgan knows it.

    Elsewhere on other BBBC threads I wrote, having read the ‘press information’ from the BBC, what I believed the hidden agenda of the BBC ‘white’ season was. I hoped that I would be wrong. Alas I was not. Not only does the series of programmes protray ALL white working class people in the UK as drunken, racist, uneducated bigots incapable of parenthood it provides the despicable Yasmin Alihai Brown and her ilk with material on which to continue her venomous hatred of white people in the UK.

    George R;

    Thanks for raisng that. Ray Honeyford was an admirable and very good headmaster. When he made his comments all thos years ago he was lambasted by the lefty liberals who now run our country. Shameful.

    But then again, that tv review website has adverts for “Hippy Shopper” so what else should I expect?

    Despite such brazen examples of bias like White Girl, there are still so many people out there who don’t think that the BBC is biased and will come rushing to the BBC’s defence.

    The BBC White Season is so ill conceived that its hard to know where to begin.

    Not only is it the wrong thing altogether but it would be far too little and way too late even if it were the right thing. The Islington crowd have decided that it is time to toss a bone to those who have been at the sharp end of crass government decisions for fully 25 years and are at breaking point. It must have dawned on some NuLab sellouts that many formerly safe seats are at risk and guess what!! they will lose out to the BNP!.

    Given that the BBC is the mouthpiece of NuLab a very late effort has been made to lance the boil of resentment that has appeared on its very own arse.

    On an edition of Newsnight last week I found myself in full agreement with Bob Crow (general sec of the trade union RMT) who, amongst others on the panel had rounded on the very crass and haughty Margaret Hodge.

    I`m not sure what it all means, but Dear Beeboids, when an arch and oldschool Tory like me is loudly cheering for Bob Crow then you lot are in real serious trouble and your silly and wrongheaded White Season will not prevent the storming of the Bastille that is soon to be your fate.

    Winter of discontent II is coming, this time it will enjoy widespread support.

  14. Atheist says:

    From Times’ “White Girl; The Fixer; The Prime Minister and the Press Barons” by Andrew Billen:
    The writer Abi Morgan says that White Girl was not about Islam, but about faith. Islam just happens to be the fastest growing religion at the moment. “Leah could just as easily have been drawn to Judaism,” she tells Broadcast. An interesting thought. But what about someone making a film about a girl from an intolerant fundamentalist Muslim family converting to the joys of enlightened atheism? Somehow I can’t see it being made, can you?

    This is what I find the most disturbing. Why is the BBC actively promoting Islam? It cannot piss over all other religions while actively promoting Islam, making it seem as if it were the solution to all our problems.

    Isn’t cognitive dissonance bad for your health? Does this denial of self-contradiction have infinite depth? How far is it going to go before they stop and ask: “Wait a minute, does this make any sense?”

    On the other hand more and more people, like Andrew Billen see it clearly for what it is.

    Does anyone have any anecdotal evidence to see how widespread this effect is? How many people are starting to see it for what it is? Are most people still swallowing this blatant propaganda without thinking?

    Perhaps you’re all jumping in too early chaps.

    There may yet be a sequel where the girl gets drugged, carted off to Pakistan by her new friends and sold off to an elderly local – only to be rescued in the end by her old dad who’s served his time, turned over a new leaf and been recruited by the government as a social services emergency international outreach worker.

    Well – we can dream.

    The BBC is now teaching 7-11 yr olds Arabic – in expensively produced schools programmes. They just broadcast a show (on BBC2) shot in Cairo which was as much about indoctrinating British kids into the wonders of an Islamic country as about learning the language. Given all the problems with basic literacy, the idea that Arabic for 7 yr olds is a priority is extraordinary. Looks like that old Jesuit policy – give me a child at 7 etc. etc. – is being enthusiastically taken up down at al beeb.

    BTW thanks for the article on Ray Honeyford – a true morality tale for our times.

    ‘Around the world in 80 gardens’ – cheesy, derivative, but good Sunday evening viewing nonetheless. Except for this Sunday when we had Monty Don enthusing about ‘Islamic Gardens’ in N Africa, which were, frankly, a tip.

    Exquisite Italian gardens were just that – no mention of Christianity.

    The Beeb promotion of Islam gets more explicit – and sometimes laughably desperate.

    The thing that really makes me angry about the White Season is the failure to address issues such as education. Its all focused on immigration,so as to make the white working class look evil.

    Whites are bashed repeatedly in these documentaries and dramas, yet NuLabour gets off scot free.

    Terry. The worrying thing is that Hodge is a ‘culture minister’ – surely that should be multiculutre minister’. I have to say that she was quite simply pathetic. Her systematic destruction by Gaunt and Crow was not to be missed. She personifies everthing I ever believed a Labour government would be and worse. Proud to say I’ve never voted for that shower of shit and never will.

    No kidding. If Potter were allowed to have the imagination to do “The Singing Detective” today, it would have a non-smoking Detective Marlow chant verses from the Koran, rather than Peg o’ My Heart, and Marlow’s fever dreams about childhood traumas would be scenes from this White series.

    The thing that really makes me angry about the White Season is the failure to address issues such as education. Its all focused on immigration,so as to make the white working class look evil.

    You raise a very interesting point here. In fact, don’t they always seem to have someone on talking about improving education for the masses, and about how more education reduces bad behavior? Not to mention how that education must include all that warm fuzzy multi-culti stuff? In fact, one could say that this really is an indictment of the British educational system under New Labour rather than a show about how bad white people are.

    The main character in the film, an 11-year old WHITE girl, was portrayed as the hero of the family, the one who brought the family together, the one with the most common sense. ”

    She only becomes the “hero” after she becomes a Muslim, before this she was a loud mouth chav.

    The moral of the story appeared to be that it doesn’t matter if you are born white you can still become a better person by becoming a Muslim.

    Now if you don’t find that offensive imagine the reverse:

    A young girl from a Muslim family of terrorism supporters (the white family were portrayed as real lowlifes after all) suddenly finds true enlightenment and contentment after converting to Christianity.

    I think most people Muslim or non-Muslim would find THAT offensive.

    After watching that toe-curlingly bad White Girl last night, I can’t say i’m surprised. I know for a fact that there’s an endemic institutional soil of bigotry within the BBC that would encourage a nurture such creative displays of bigotry towards working-class white people. I freelanced as a graphic designer with them for a year after graduating from art college in ’97. And in the end, I had to cut my contract short – not the sole reason mind, but it was partly due to the palpable prejudice and sneering attitudes they had towards WWCs. To be honest, it may not have been so bad as I remember, and none of the comments I experienced were directly aimed at me, but being a working-class lad from Romford, I just wasn’t expecting to hear a daily barrage of Essex boy/girl jokes (which had been around a number of years, but for them was the new hilarious thing) put-on Waynetta slob accents, and derogatory comments about people who live on council estates. Anyway, just wanted to get that off my chest. Great blog btw.

    How about a program about welfare? We’ll call it “The Welfare State we’re in.”

    It will open with the lines: “Welfare is wrong because it creates dependance which cuts across the striving for independance which is liberty.”

    Nah, the Welfare state is a holy cow for Beeboids, they much prefer to reduce council sink estates to a problem regarding race.

    Explanation: They begin by heading the inquiry as “white.” White refers to the lowest common denominator, the purely physical reference to the indigenous people of this country: White skin. They then say: these are the behavioural attributes of people with white skin.

    Make no mistake. The BBC has gone Nazi. Gary Powell is 100 times right, the BBC are a National Socialist organisation.

    And the BBC’s latest effort in its dreadful ‘White’ season ‘The Poles are Coming!’ (BBC 2 tv tonight) was superficial, and again adopted a trade-mark BBC multicultural ideological stance, not identifying with the viewpoint of most indigenous people in Peterborough, but spending much time in Poland, in Gdansk, and to give lightweight presenter Tim Samuels a buzz, interviewing Lech Walesa.

    The impact of the mass immigration, brought about by this Labour Government on Peterborough, which has seen a sudden influx of about (because there are only estimates of numbers available) 15,000 Muslims, 2,000 plus Poles, 1000 plus Lithuanians, 600 plus Slovaks was of no particular concern to Samuels. The subtlety and concern of the programme was illustrated by the crass use of music like ‘there’s a summer place’ played across masses of dumped rubbish in public areas.

    Great article. It’s such a pleasure to read a well-written piece that cuts like a scythe through the propaganda of institutions that share the idiocy of the dumbed-down PC BBC.

    The BBC doesn’t employ anyone who can write anywhere near as well as this.

    “A BBC spokesman defended the series, saying Miss Mukherjee was responding to an article, not the programming.

    “It’s clear from what she has written that she has not actually seen any of the programmes in the series,” he said.”

    What the spokesman fails to realise is that if you don’t have to watch it, for it “to leave a nasty taste in the mouth” among your own staff, then what is the effect on the audience likely to be?

    I really struggle to imagine the editorial meetings in which this story (which looks so politically one-sided I could not bring myself to watch it) was imagined to achieve what the intention of this series of programmes was, apparently, intended as being.

    If it looks like shite and smells like shite I am not going to eat it to be certain that it is shite.

    Yes, a BBC spokesman (for its ‘White’ season) said “it’s clear from what she (Sarah Mukherjee) has written that she has not actually seen any of the programmes in the series.”

    So that Beeboids associated with the ‘White’ series cannot miss seeing the ‘Daily Telegraph’ report, here is an extract:

    “Sarah Mukherjee, the environment correspondent, who grew up on a predominantly white council estate in Essex, said that BBC2’s White season risked reinforcing the stereotype of the white working class as violent and racist alcoholics who live on benefits.

    “The reporter, who is Asian, made the comments after Richard Klein, the BBC’s commissioning editor for documentaries, said that the corporation had been ‘brave’ to make a series of programmes about the ‘prejudices, alienation, fears and confusion’ of the white working class.

    “He said in an interview with the BBC’s in-house magazine Ariel that the season should be watched by anyone ‘who thinks the BBC no longer takes risks’.

    “Miss Mukherjee said: ‘I think you’ll find that firefighters, ambulance workers and soldiers are brave, rather than filmmakers. And am I the only one for whom this season leaves a nasty taste in the mouth?'”

    Muslim extremism is not a reaction to, nor exasperated by the “failure” of multiculturalism. Muslim extremism is a non-reactive ideology strongly bolstered with the authority of the Koran.

    Multiculturalism is a liberal outlook based on the freedom of the individual to practice their culture without demands (“cultural imperialism”) from the host dominant culture. Swimming lessons for Muslim girls are a case in point. To force Muslim girls to attend swimming lessons without their parents consent is authoritarian. Not at all liberal. This is why Ray Honeyford was ‘demonised’ as a ‘racist.’
