Cheap and Nasty

 

 

You always know you have a stupid, lazy, unpleasant, cowardly comedian when they go for Trump.  They know that they are guaranteed some applause from a certain segment of the audience if they sneer at Trump and make some asinine joke about him, it doesn’t even have to be funny or true…just say ‘Trump’ and you’ll get the applause.  They of course won’t do jokes that are seen as in his favour as to do so would result in Twitter going into meltdown and their credibility as a right-on comedian left in tatters.  They just aren’t brave enough to do real funny, they just go for the group-think tribal self-confirming comfort blanket of anti-Trumpism.  It would be like a white comedian making jokes about Obama because he’s black to a KKK meeting.  Anti-Trumpism is a sort of racism, it’s bigotry, stupidity and cowardice.  The same comedian of course would never make jokes about Mohammed and Islam despite the extraordinary horrors done in the name of Allah.

‘Comedian’ Desiree Burch on the News Quiz is that lazy, bigoted comedian who instead of thinking up some real jokes goes for the low hanging fruit of the Trump.   She laughs at his Tweet about the NHS being in crisis and sneers that he gets his news from Fox…how they laughed.  Only Trump was really just ‘retweeting’ the extremists of the BBC, the Labour Party and the activist doctors and nurses who agitate on behalf of the Labour Party and whose constant drumbeat has been of an NHS in crisis but who suddenly all now agree that the NHS is the best health service in the world.

So a chance to make a joke about the hypocrisy of those who have weaponised the NHS and told constant lies about it and another chance to reference Trump retweeting extremist material not by ‘Britain First’ but by ‘Britain Last’...ie the BBC et al.  But no…go for the easy laugh from your unthinking tribal groupies….don’t challenge them, don’t challenge yourself with some original thought.

It’s the same with thoughtless, partisan politicians who go for that easy applause as Stephen Kinnock did on Any Questions [again the audience seemingly packed with lefties…or a very vocal minority] when he claimed Trump was the problem when it came to North Korea.  Apparently Trump has only made things worse there and he needs to tone his rhetoric down.  Yep, that has worked really well for decades hasn’t it as North Korea totally ignored everything ‘diplomatic’ Presidents have said?  Kinnock is either a fool or bigoted liar prepared to make totally untrue statements for his own ends….intended to make Stephen Kinnock look good [but failing, like father, like son]…‘Trump, what a crass, dangerous and stupid fellow ha ha ha!…clap me now!’

Trouble is what is going on over there directly relates to Trump’s sabre rattling which was intended to, and did, scare the Chinese who then imposed sanctions on North Korea…and now we see North Korea at least going through the motions of trying to be more friendly to South Korea…will it last?  Who knows but it is due to Trump, his sabre rattling backing up a good deal of behind the scenes diplomacy.

Shame Dimbleby then referred to Kinnock’s interpretation as if it was the reality and that Trump really did have to tone down his language…doesn’t he?

Kirsty Wark on Newsnight continued in similar anti-Trump vain with some stupid comments that made no attempt to make a fair assessment or judgement on Trump’s claim that CNN [and all the rest] has been pumping out fake news, it has.  Wark, as is the standard BBC line, claims Trump [apparently now a ‘despot’] is wrong and the MSM, the BBC, is totally blameless and trustworthy….might say such shameless white-washing and stone-walling comments defending the MSM prove her completely wrong and Trump right….H/T Sue at Is the BBC biased? for the quote….

“Aren’t you aiding the despots who say “it’s all about fake news from CNN even the BBC, so we won’t believe it?” You are aiding people by undermining the probity of the mainstream media?” 

‘Probity of the mainstream media’…ho, ho,ho….and you still believe in Father Christmas, unicorns and man-made climate change.

    But who is listening?
    We all know what Newsnight and Question Time are about. A desperate rearguard action to get some mock up or tribute to “truth” back into their bottle. But we`ve seen Laurie Penny (described as a journalist on your clip_fake news continued) get rumbled by David Starkey.
    Nobody cares what the BBC put out-not funny, not truthful and a huge pile of public sector gauleiter soundtrack for Soros and Hillary.
    Don`t watch them, and do NOT feed the trolls.

      Will those traitors at the BBC not realise that it was the likes of these two BBC programmes that caused the undecided voters to turn away from voting “remain”

      A year or so on. And we are sure glad we switched onto your bias programmes, you did the UK a great service!

      So, carry on BBC you are doing a very fine job for us Brexit lovers!

        Chris / ves

        It accords with my view about the bubble talking and laughing to itself . The “right ons”
        Kidults and other liberals in metro city boroughs interbreeding are the customers for this stuff . It’s what they want to hear .

        So across the country decent people roll their eyes and hit the off switch . I really would like to know the viewing numbers – a proper organisation would pull the plug but since there is a continuos tax stream al beeb need not care

        Others here have reasoned that there is a need to little to Marr, Toady and the many others carrying the al beeb editorial line and bear witness but I think there is a strong need to ration exposure . 5 minutes of eddy nightmare is enough for me –

    What is a journalist ?

    Well I have a press card , I bet Laurie Penny has one , Anne Coulter will have one and so should Kirsty Wark .

    Josef Goerbels was a journalist , as were those employed by his ministry . Likewise with the USSR.

    Do all good journalists get an outlet for their work ? No .
    Can bad journalists get a outlet for their work ? Yes .

    Does the internet help good journalists ? Yes
    Can it help bad journalists ? Yes .

    Do we get fake news on the BBC ? Yes
    Do we get fake news on the Internet ? Yes

    Can we easily counter fake news on the BBC ? No
    Can we easily counter fake news on the Internet ? Yes .

    In the video clip far left Laurie Penny teams up with the BBC’s anti Trumper to defend journalism and the MSM.

    It is time to recognise a distinction between activists and journalists.
    Penny is primarily an activist and the BBC is recruiting them for its various news outlets.

    Love the way Laurie Penny, writer for The Guardian and New Statesman is invited to offer her view and then calmly listened to, whilst Ann Coulter is thrown a defensive line which she has to first correct before then trying to put over a point. As Coulter did made her arguements Kirsty shrieked over the top of her.

    Does Kirsty count fake news as including the BBC lying about a polish man being murdered by those who voted Brexit? Does it include the BBC sacking journalists who were investigating paedophile groups within the BBC? Does it include Newsnight saying that the temperature of the world will rise by 4 degrees by 2030 …. And so it goes on.

    The reason people go to web sites for their news over the BBC is because of events like Rotherham, the worst atrocity to occur on mainland UK soil since the war and wholly avoided by the BBC.

    Ann Coulter missed a trick as Wark introduces her as “right wing” but in contrast introduces our Penny Red as “writer”

    Possibly million book selling Coulter had never previously heard of this BBC much favoured lefty?

      The problem with discussing the likes of ms penny ( Or is it cent ?) or that other fashionably lefty loon afriaa? Is that it gives them a kind of authority to enter the public discourse as opposed to people like me who in essence is the on line version of a ‘bloke in a decent right wing pub’ I would have to moderate my view in a pub and I do here – otherwise the public order laws would kill me .

      These kidults win “fame “ when given an airing and noted historians make the mistake of 1 . Sitting on the same platform 2. Biting back .

      I can’t say what I’d do with that young thing but you might guess – and it’s not a valentines card

    Real scientific experts in Climate science such as Solar Astronomers, Atmospheric Physicists and Meteorologists, cannot hold meetings on University property due to left-wing administrators. Their meetings are also censored by the mainstream media. For the last ten years these people have been fully aware of fake news on the BBC.

    For me and many others, it started when the BBC told Mensa members complaining about the atrociously poor quality of science and mistakes in a BBC Climate Change documentary. The BBC said that the documentary was ok because the makers of the documentary said so, and that the BBC had held a seminar of the best scientific experts to advise the BBC on its Climate Change policy. But then those on the seminar panel turned out to consist of left-wing environmental activists, without a single scientific expert in Atmospheric Physics or Solar Astronomy.

    As far as is known, the BBC is still advised by fake experts who as has been speculated, have no knowledge of thermodynamics. The BBC also told Mensa members that it hadn’t any scientific investigative journalists, presumably because the BBC needs low IQ middle-class left-wing Guardian reading useful idiots, if it wants fake news about Climate Change.

    So the correct statement would be:

    “Is not the BBC aiding the people who say “it’s all about fake news from the BBC, so we won’t believe it?” The BBC is aiding people by undermining the probity of the mainstream media?”

    Roman Colosseum to Be Lit Blood Red for Persecuted Christians

    http://www.breitbart.com/national-security/2018/02/12/roman-colosseum-to-be-lit-blood-red-for-persecuted-christians/

    See Open Doors. Most of this bloody persecution and murder is in Islamic countries and North Korea. Surprisingly, India is in the top dozen of extreme persecution of Christians. Even Saudi Arabia is better then India.

      To be fair to Muslims.
      If even only one of them gets attacked in Bosnia or in Iraq-the howls around the world now mean that nuns in Pakistan or Copts in Egypt get lynched.
      This is just a pretext to them, but there is an “umma” notion that means that one Muslim under an attack(confected or real) is the whole damned Islamic world . And revenge is assured.
      Compare and contrast with what happens to captured Libyan Christians or Egyptian Copts on a bus to a pilgrimage. Or indeed Christians that dare to pray on a dinghy heading for Lampedusa when Muslims take against them. Now then-if YOU were to choose a faith…which one would best defend your interests?
      The Christians have no courage, no convictions and no care for their suffering brothers and sisters. Yes, there ARE great people like the Barnabas Trust and Caroline Cox at Open Doors. But Welby and Nichols are Muslim ciphers, gutless like Pope Francis.
      Islam is the strong black horse-the weak Christian and Godless west amalgam is a weak white nobbled gelding only fit fot Fray Bentos or the knackers yard.
      Bin Laden was correct. My paraphrase, but his point.

    We`re not paying our license. Just saw Pointless where Osman and Armstrong cite Trump as being the recipient of a Golden Raspberry Award for being a bad actor, Both these lads are talented and conservative with a small “c”, but they chose to read this out by way of a question.
    A casual and totally predictable drive by as ever against Trump-in the run up to the news, why let the bile stop for just ten minutes?
    So we`re off. April 30th-it`ll be anything but the bloody BBC anyhoo.
