“We all recall the BBC and the rest of the MSM ghoulish exploitation of the murder of Jo Cox to further their own political agenda. The conflation with Brexit, hate crime and white supremacism to tar millions of people as racist bigots was just too appealing to ignore at the expense of the poor woman’s ghastly murder.
So when I heard that a man had been arrested trying to stab people on a train in London, whilst shouting “he wanted to kill Muslims”, I expected a similar narrative to emerge. However, it hasn’t been forthcoming. The news was carried on BBC London’s Bulletin last night – with no mention of the M word – while the BBC website article
is tucked way, way, way down.
This was strange as surely it was a blatant example of Islamaphobic hate crime (and probably the closest you could get to a real one). Yet the BBC report is sterile and straight.
“A 38-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm and remains in police custody. Train services were temporarily stopped on the line. Police said they were not treating the attack as terrorism, but as a hate crime.”
But hate crime is all the rage at the moment? It must be yet another indication of the post-Brexit backlash against minorities?
“Shellby Curry, 24, from Forest Hill, said she saw a man “waving what looked to be a knife in his hand” near the station and screaming words like “Muslims… kill them all”. She described the attacker as a black man with short hair, who she thought appeared to be in his late 30s or early 40s.”
The attacker was black.
A black man, probably mentally disturbed, committing a hate crime against a Muslim just doesn’t quite fit with the Beeb’s neat, politically correct viewpoint (unless of course the cops shot him dead, which they didn’t). Rather than being suched into a PC vortex, the story is relegated and nothing representative of wider society. I wonder if that would be the same if the attacker was white though….
Update. The man has been charged: Man charged after train attack at Forest Hill train station – BBC News. The M word is now totally removed.

Meanwhile, as the M word continues to be omitted in relation to massacres – for both perpetrators and victims – in places such as Aleppo and Yemen (loving the Beeb’s subtle normalisation of the burka in their coverage) when committed by and to other Muslims, the M word is included when the perpetrators are non-Muslim and the victims are Muslim. There is also other news stories about terrorism, handing cash over to terrorists, FGM, rape, et al where the M word is carefully sidestepped. .
Instead, the BBC prefers to wallow in its echo chamber of pro-Muslim bias. There have been a few anti-Islam stories but it the output is stacked in the positive/Muslims as victims narrative. Stories just from the past month or so include:
That’s just a sample.
I am so bored of hearing this incessant, unrelenting narrative. It does, of course, cut to the very core of the nature of Islam, which literally means submission. The struggle – whether political or violent – will continue until society gives in. Until it submits to the onslaught and acknowledges that Islam is superior.
It struck me that, under sharia, non-believers have to pay a jizya in order to be treated like second class citizens before the superiority of Islam.
Sounds not too dissimlar to the current set-up at the BBC. Except their mandatory tax is called the licence fee.
