The BBC is flooding the schedules with programmes designed to educate us about how unpleasant and stupid we are to vote for Trump or Brexit. I don’t think there is a programme that in some shape or form does not have such veiled and sinister messages implanted within either deriding and mocking Trump or scaremongering about Brexit. Switch on the TV or radio anytime at random and you can almost guarantee Trump/Brexit being maligned and undermined.
On Saturday on ‘Inside Out London’ [Any coincidence that the logo for this programme is Islamically inspired?] we had the smug and right-on Matthew Wright introducing a programme on alleged discrimination against Muslims [another one of those subjects the BBC fills the airwaves with, when it’s not telling us how wonderful Isam is] with the thought that thank goodness for Trump because his racism puts it back in the news agenda. Wright was telling us how Muslims are discriminated in the jobs market. How does he know? Because a Muslim academic tells him so. An academic who says he himself is discriminated against and he has developed a test to prove it…and naturally he does so. Might suggest the opposite is true…Muslims get preferential treatment. The trick is to have some useful idiot plant some bombs in the name of Islam, claim they were driven to it by anti-Muslim discrimination, then claim that Muslims themselves are the real victims of the bombs…..politicians panic and the likes of the BBC work as the propaganda arm of the Islamists and promote the narrative that Muslims are the victims of British society…everyone then panders to this narrative and you get an Islamist like Warsi placed as Chair of the Tory Party. So like the 1930’s.
Trump came up again this morning in a highly disrespectful and insulting manner as the BBC trailed ‘The Life Scientific’ by saying you might think Trump was mentally ill but that would be insulting to the mentally ill. This was on the prime-time Today show….astonishing that they think it appropriate not only to insult the President of the United States but to do so by using ‘mental health’ as an insult….so the ‘mentally ill’ are now figures of hate and abuse for the BBC? It is remarkable how the BBC’s employees think they have a licence to so casually insult and abuse Trump in such a contemptuous manner, a manner they would never dream of using for Obama or Merkel. It’s outright prejudice from our supposedly gold standard news outlet.
Brexit is also the de rigeur subject to link to in any programme…preferably in as negative and derogatory a tone as possible. The standard form is to link Brexit to the 1930’s or Fascism or the Far Right. I haven’t listened to much of the BBC’s ‘Brexit: A guide for the perplexed’ but I don’t think I’m missing much as it seems just to be the usual excuse for scaremongering and generating hate against Leave voters who were described in yet another sly attack on Brexit as being ‘people who will rise up against the elite and beat ‘the Other’ to death’ . Leave voters apparently fear change and such fears were inflamed by the nasty rhetoric of polticians and journalists [naturally pro-Brexit ones…the Remain camp’s lies and alarmism never gets mentioned]. We are informed that Parliament has no idea what the hell it has let itself in for by voting for Brexit. All those EU regulations will have to go and we just can’t cope [er…no, they don’t have to go]. Apparently Ministers will invoke ‘Henry VIII’ clauses and bypass Parliament using statutory instruments to avoid scrutiny and trash laws as they like…this [Brexit], we are told, is very, very dangerous. But the EU laws do not have to go, they can remain in force until government decides they need to be amended….there is no rush..,.if they work, they work. The BBC is just inventing problems as it tries to generate alarm and fear about Brexit.
I’m sure you have read a bit about the BBC’s James Purnell’s comments on the future of the BBC and how it will ‘reinvent’ itself…mostly it seems by rewriting history and denigrating Britain…so no change there then.
Facts, accuracy, truth, seem to have been abandoned in favour of ’empathy’ and manipulating the news so as not to offend anyone….so again no change there then…
There’s no canon, no set texts, nobody is handing down tablets of stone. It’s about working out what we want from life, and learning the empathy that, as Peter Bazalgette argued recently, “is the glue that enables families, communities and countries to function in a civil and civilised manner”.
So much for this laughably pompous and ridiculous comment…
Fake news is a serious concern but we should not be too despondent because today’s media is also the greatest educational resource the world has ever seen.
The BBC is the biggest peddler of fake news in the world…it criticises Russia’s alleged nterference in the US election [by publishing genuine and inconveniently ‘sensitive’ emails on Clinto and Co] and yet the BBC has an enormous budget from government to broadcast propaganda to countries it thinks are in need of its help in toppling those leaders and regimes it sees as ‘unBBC’ in an exercise of soft power….such as er…Russia.
Purnell goes on…
…after solving the meaning of life and the future of the world, we’ll turn to civilisation. Well, Civilisations — inspired by Kenneth Clark’s seminal documentary series, but in many ways the opposite of the original. Rather than a single view of civilisation, we will have three presenters. Rather than looking at Western civilisation, we will look at many, and question the very concept of civilisation.
Naturally at least two strands will be Islam and Black Africa with the line that both are innocent victims of White oppression. The presenters will use the programme to launch an all out attack on the West whilst painting a picture of incredible and beautiful native cultures languishing under the brutal colonial whiphand.
You can get a taste of what is to come by looking at this week’s ‘Book of the Week’…’The Age of Anger’ by Pankaj Mishra…You can get an idea of his thinking here…any wonder why the BBC gives him airtime?….The BBC’s favourite whipping boys…..Trump, Brexit, Nationalism, Hindus….
In a ground-breaking new analysis, Pankaj Mishra traces the tangled roots of hatreds and nationalisms across the world.
Inspired by Hindu nationalists in his own country, the rise of the so-called Islamic State, the emergence of Donald Trump as a candidate for President, as well as Brexit, the author attempts to re-examine the divided modern world.
Mishra himself explains…
How can we explain the origins of the great wave of paranoid hatreds that seem inescapable in our close-knit world – from American ‘shooters’ and ISIS to Trump, from a rise in vengeful nationalism across the world to racism and misogyny on social media?
So Trump, Brexit, mass murderers and ISIS…all one and the same.
Mishra is apparently a self-proclaimed Buddhist but one who loves Islam and proselytises relentlessly for it whilst demonising Hindus and anyone who criticises Islam…again so BBC.
Here’s what the site ‘Butterflies and Wheels’ says about Mishra’s attack on one he describes as the anti-Islam ‘Enlightenment fundamentalist’ Ayaan Hirsi Ali…
It’s ugly, nasty, bullying, innuendo-laden stuff…. patronizing clueless nonsense.
That’s in fact pretty much a description of his ‘Book of the Week’ in which we are told the ‘white supremacist’ Trump and Brexit are the end result of the rise in racism and the Far Right fueled by foaming-at-the-mouth demagogues, telling us that ‘It is a moment for thinkers such as Sigmund Freud, who warned in 1915 that the “primitive, savage and evil impulses of mankind have not vanished in any individual”, but are simply waiting for the opportunity to show themselves again.’
I thought people just voted to leave the undemocratic, autocratic EU…who knew eh? Primitive, savage and evil bastards? Well I never did.
Yep…just a foretaste of what the BBC is planning to use your licence money for, to propagate its anti-white, anti-Western, anti-Brexit, anti-Trump messages.
The BBC’s message is one of hate, it’s divisive and dangerous. If the same messages were being said about Muslims and Islam the BBC would be up in arms…instead it peddles its own racism, prejudice and hate against Leave voters and whites.
