Weekend Open Thread 1 September 2018

So the Far  Left anti Semitic BBC has to find a way to report on the anti Semitic goings on in their favourite Far Left political party – Labour . What are its options? Ignore, look the other way ; decide that there is a more important issue or attack the victims of Labour Party bullying

Meanwhile Far Left BBC reporters in America will be lining up to condemn President Trump whilst lauding a dead white republican politician just because he didn’t like Mr. Trump . The political swamp will be showing its collective false grief along with the BBC

    Guardian opinion 2018-09-01
    “Scotland loves the deep-fat fryer. Could Syrians change that?” Ian Jack

    “On a fine day, I can glimpse the outskirts of Greenock, on a hill a few miles across the Clyde from where I write, on the island of Bute”

    You can read the rest yourself, but I would not bother.

    Ian, when you have a minute, with your extensive knowledge of Bute, tell us about the rape and murder of six-year-old Alesha MacPhail on Bute in July 2018.

    Especially the extraordinary, perhaps unprecedented, efforts to prevent the name of the murderer becoming public.

    BBC Online News:

    “”US ends aid to Palestinian refugee agency Unrwa””

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-45377336

    The opening photo is of well dressed Palestinian school girls to tug at the hear-strings.

    No bias there, then?

      Iain Dale is talking about it on LBC at the moment and as usual he’s not asking pertinent questions such as why does the UN have a relief agency, UNRWA, dedicated to these people living in the area known as palestine when the UN has a relief agency that supposedly provides help to everyone; what makes these arabs, I think they are, so special? And, why should the USA give money to people who hate them, work against them and yet demand money as though it’s a right for them to be given it. The same question applies to the UK too.

      Dover Sentry,

      It needs to be said again and again that there cannot be a group of people in the history of the planet more coddled (and less deserving of being coddled) than the Palestinians.

    I haven’t seen any reports by the BBC News departments on the recent findings of The Office of National Statistics concerning the number of births to mothers who were not born in the UK for the year 2017.

    My local newspaper ‘The Express and Star’ gives a comprehensive breakdown for The Black Country:
    https://www.expressandstar.com/news/2018/09/01/third-of-mothers-not-born-in-the-uk/
    “The most common place of origin for mothers in both areas was the Middle East and Asia, according to the data, making up 46 per cent of the group.”

    The Birmingham Mail analyses the statistics for Birmingham:
    https://www.birminghammail.co.uk/news/midlands-news/surprising-number-births-foreign-born-15082039
    “The data shows that…. 22.3 per cent were born to mothers born in Asia and the Middle East – up from 22.0 per cent in 2016. Some 9.1 per cent were born to mothers born in Africa (up from 8.9 per cent), while 6.4 per cent were born to mothers from the “new” European Union countries (up from 6.3 per cent).”
    The Birmingham Mail distorts the true figures by not including mothers who were born in the UK of Pakistani or Asian origin. Walk around Birmingham now and you will see that white people are now in the minority.

    The magazine ‘Fortune’ looks at the statistics for the whole of the UK by focusing on the most popular boys names:
    http://fortune.com/2017/09/22/muhammad-william-popular-baby-names/
    image?url=https%3A%2F%2Ffortunedotcom.files.wordpress.com%2F2017%2F09%2Fbaby-names.png&w=1100&q=85

    Not like the BBC to remain silent on topics like this.

    An exchange of gags on BBC Radio 4’s New Quiz actually made me chuckle a little rather than the usual wince yesterday.

    After some tedious anti-British anti-colonial anti-Brexit scripted material on Theresa May’s African tour (but as in a parallel comedy universe John Cleese in blackface might once have remarked ‘what have the British ever done for us eh?’) we had a section on Scallop Wars – you know, this new fishing conflict off Brittany (that’s the French province not the hit-me-one-more-time singer).
    Comedienne (either Angela Barnes or Helen Lewis, I think) does an old school English French-bashing joke:
    “eventually the British fleet retreated after a few minutes stone-throwing and taunting and I believe that is the biggest French military victory since Hastings”
    Much laughter. Some of it from both the panel and BBC audience a little self-conscious and awkward (guilty, perhaps) or perhaps I’m reading too much into it?
    Anyway. Inveterate lugubrious lefty Mark Steel seems to have bantered in reply off the cuff:
    “This is what the News Quiz is gonna be like after Brexit!…. It’s all gonna be this!”
    A funny comment right? But think how much he implies about the present nature of News Quiz. It’s almost as though Steel is letting on to his audience how there is presently in place a cosy form of censorship or editorial agenda for jokes – that could be lifted after Brexit and what a bad idea that would be.

    The Times has dicovered that the taxman is vetoing potential nominees for an honour if their tax affairs might be disliked by the tabloid press. Gary Lineker and Wayne Rooney, amongst others, have found perfectly legal ways to avoid paying tax so this seems unfair, especially when there are other valid reasons not to give them an honour: Lineker for treason because he is encouraging millions of foreigners to come here, some of whom will end up raping English girls or plotting mass murder against us. And Rooney because he’s a Scouser.

      Sluff, they did give Bowie, Prince and Jackson a fair bit of coverage on departure. Nothing like the amount Kate Bush got when she did her first live gig for many years about three or four years back. The Beeb went overboard on that.

      I think that was the start of softening the public up to accept a limited amount of advertising on BBC Radio 4 and BBC One. This morning on TOADY it was a blatant plug for a woman’s dance academy.

      Fed up,
      Her father was a fully paid up member of the Globalist elite and she is polishing up her cv so that she too can join the club.
      The situation in the USA becomes more incredible as every day brings some new revelation of the corruption and abuse of power by the deep state aimed at removing the President. It is now proven beyond any doubt , let alone reasonable doubt, that there has been a conspiracy at the highest levels to mount a soft coup and remove the president from office. Yet the media , with a few honourable exceptions, ignore the mountain of evidence and continue to pursue Trump on the thoroughly discredited story that he colluded with Russians to steal the 2016 election.
      If the Republicans hold onto the Hof R in the Nov election , and probably even if they don’t, then I am certain that Trump will force through the declassification of documents which will show how extensive and corrupt the conspiracy was. It will make Watergate look insignificant . Once that happens the media will have a hell of a lot of explaining to do to the American people. Just as the BBC will when explaining why they have been silent on this story.
      But By now I would have expected that the media would be cutting and running from their conspiratorial friends. That they aren’t makes me wonder if they have a plan that no matter what happens Trump will be got rid of one way or another. Of course they may be able to find a way to get rid of Trump , illegally probably, but getting rid of the sixty plus million who voted for him will be impossible by any democratic means .
      It makes me think that democracy is at stake in America and if the deep state win through against the President then they will never be able to repair the damage that they have inflicted. Who knows what will happen after that?

        Country – well taking on the UN is a good start as is pushing NATO members to pay for their own security – the US economy being generally health can’t be bad . And identifying the MSM as the enemy is good too even as approval ratings improve despite the bubble propaganda machine including foreign press such as the far left bbc taking daily snide pot shots .

        For a non politician to be 2 years in with such circumstances can’t be too bad can it ? He hasn’t drawn red lines which can’t be crossed – and then does nothing when they are showing a weak presidency or have allegations of sex in the Oval Office on his head….or be as thick as George bush.

    Millions of Europeans and North Americans desperately wish to become as black as the ace of spades.
    Why should their wishes not be granted?
    If I can get a patent for my cream I will be able to charge exorbitant prices.

    The bonus is, when we start re-exporting non Europeans to the homes of their ancestors, we can also export the newly black. The newly black will be almost totally non-productive drones and no loss to the economy.

    I believe a few brown envelopes to certain producers in the BBC and we could see my cream “advertised” regularly on BBC programmes. The scripts on Eastenders etc. could be changed so that black characters tell of their delight to be going home. The newly black could extol the virtues of both their new blackness and the fifth world slums they are going to.

I don’t think you will ever see a more clear cut case of Trump Derangement Syndrome in your life than poor Jon has got. I can’t tweet him anymore cos he blocked me as some of my comments were, well, a bit , fruity !!!!

    Here he is saying how “classy” trump is for tweeting on the day of McCain’s funeral, but completely fails to mention the utter classlessness of McCain’s daughter at her father’s funeral having a pathetic dig at trump in her speech. But this is sopel so he is very selective what he actually heard

    https://mobile.twitter.com/BBCJonSopel/status/1035914106577072129

    And then digs at trump again in a further tweet , belittling him for going playing golf whilst McCain’s funeral is on. He WASN’T invited Sopel you moron. He can do what he wants. If he went. It’s disrespectful, if he stays away like McCain’s specifically requested, he’s disrespectful. Trump just cannot win with pricks like our Jon.

      Sopel is not a journalist. he is a propagandist, allowed by the bbc to bring us a non -stop anti-Trump narrative. He could equally well have worked for Goebbels: the enemy is always the same, the good guys are always the same. The propaganda has to go out on a daily basis.
      Most of his colleagues have similar platforms to promote their agendas. They are not about reporting the news, they are about finding ‘news’ to suit their narratives and ignore the rest.They are not journalists at all.
      Result: When Sopel comes on we know exactly what line he is going to follow. Ditto Nick Bryant, etc etc
      Bottom line:We don’t really need ‘the news’ from the BBC. Not on Trump. Not on Chemnitz. Not on Labour Party problems.

      Brain cancer-so imagine those last few weeks as he told the lugenpresse that Trump would NOT be getting an invite to the funeral parlour.
      Had he spent a bit more time, wondering why he lost and why Trump WON?…then he might have had something of import to leave us with.
      The BBC do have this tendency now don`t they?
      Helmut Kohl was the first nomark to get the UN Seal OF Approval on a sordid, chiselling life…and Aretha deserves no more that Gloria Gaynor or either of the Weather Girls really , does she?
      These stiffs are more use to the liberal elite when dead, than they ever were in life.
      McCain was a ten a penny grifter, albeit entitled to his disability scooter after letting himself get caught in `Nam.
      He served the liberal elite by making Obama look good by comparison in 2008, as well as handing the Crimea/Ukraine to Putin by being a muppet.
      My history is better than anybody working at the BBC these days. But then so is Chris Morris, and he makes it all up as we all do.

    I learned something from today’s PM Programme in their report from Chemnitz. I had always thought that the term “lugenpress” to describe the lying press had a long history in Germany, going back at least to the Revolution of 1848. I’d even seen references to its use during the Franco Prussian war. However, according to the PM Programme it’s a Nazi term and anyone using it is a Nazi. The fact that some of the protesters at Chemnitz used it proved, at least to the satisfaction of the BBC reporter, that they were Nazis. Yet another instance of “Is that true, or is it something you heard on the BBC?”

    If the BBC is going to object to people criticising the press for lying they really should avoid telling more lies in their report – otherwise it rather proves the point.

      I went on to a PDF version of William L Shirer’s book The Rise And Fall Of The Third Reich and looked up Lugenpresse . No results found . If it was such a big item in the Nazi state I’m sure the exhaustive book would have mentioned it .

        Lots of mentions of “Islamophobia” and a need for Hitler to address charges of “anti-Semitism” from 1915 though I`m sure.
        The BBC are already scrawling over any books to add their take on it all, peoples like Shirer and Bullock seem so-well, “certain” of things.

      I popped ‘origins of word ‘lugenpresse’ into google. Tentatively, especially as I now know google to be as much a starting point at best on any factual journey; much like the bbc.

      Interesting. On the first page, almost exclusively MSM titles lying their mastheads off. Ironically.

      Just one link stood out, and it was of all things Wikipedia.

      Which apparently none of the US media bothered to check.

    Frank Field earns plaudits for his honourable resignation – but how much more honourable might it have been had he revealed and explained the true reasons behind the rise in anti-Semitism. And the significance of those reasons in relation to Labour votes.
    Then again, no one in public life or the media has the courage to tell the truth, so why expect a 76-year-old to do the work?

    In accordance with my name – after an hour I gave on the McCain fest – so I wonder if anyone stuck with it .? I wonder if military service was mentioned much since Clinton and bush were draft dodgers and Obama was too busy being down with the kids in Chicago to put on the uniform .

    You can’t say America s military achieved a great deal during the tenure of those 3 presidents and as I have said before at least President Trump has adopted a ‘what’s it it for us?’ Doctrine instead of starting wars with no clear gain .

    I just hope Blighty avoid sending kids in uniform to fight other people’s wars just so that politicians can sound statemen like – eg Blair , Major ….

    I hasten to add I am no pacifist and love to hear that an Anglo America drone has killed lots of people who are not our friends …whether they might have a UK passport or not .

    But the report is 80% about the so-called “People’s Vote”. So no need to be concerned, treason at the BBC is full steam ahead.

    In another report an 81 year old man has had “gender re-assignment”. Where is the BBC outrage about this waste of funds at their beloved NHS? AWOL.
    Perhaps we should all self-identify as 67 and demand a pension, refusing this would be ageism.

    Profile on my beloved radio 4 has fallen to the wretched ‘diversity’ bug. I like hearing about someone who went to Oxford then joined the civil service but today we hear of the author of a book about yardies who went into hiding having published the book as he feared reprisals. Lovely. What was always so soothing about radio 4 was how lusciously polite, quintessentially English and middle class it was. I do not want to hear about someone glamourising crime – it makes me feel stressed and annoyed rather than relaxed. They are not making the channel more ‘vibrant’ and accessible; they are alienating their current loyal listeners with this cultural vandalism. F**k ‘diversity’ it has ruined our once glorious capital.

    Thersea may quite rightly rules out any second referendum. Chris mason does piece for BBC reporting this. Manages 10 seconds before report goes off piste and turns into just another BBC anti Brexit rant …. journalism my arse . Sickening.

    Now Christian reports more trouble in Germany overnight. The far right group AFG blamed for stirring up trouble he laments. I don’t quite remember the BBC having such moral issues when Corbyn and McDonald and the pug faced little shit Owen Jones were calling on people to storm the council offices after Grenfell and inciting hatred . Nope, still don’t remember.

    Update, now Christian is defending Corbyn to the hilt. Won’t let the woman from the Jewish movement finish a sentence. Christian clearly another Corbyn lovey at the BBC. 13 mins of BBC breakfast and I am out.

Scattered around the field their opponents today we have the familiar black outfits of the So-Called Islamic State franchise. All those wonderful long beards. Puts one in mind of W G Grace. Painted right across the wicket the sponsor’s logo – the Al Qaeda Network, of course. Lots of rainbow flags being waved in happy contrast with the black flags fluttering in the breeze over the Pavilion End. Wonderful to see the crowd entering into the fun and games with groups in fancy dress, how jolly.

    Curtis Deutsch, purportedly a scientist, has researched the impact of increasing temperatures on insect life and pro rata the effects on cereal production. Apparently their increased appetites will lead to 10-25% losses worldwide as higher temperatures drive the urge to eat more.
    Meanwhile, back in the real world, not populated with climate obsessed non-entities desperate for scientific stardom, the intake of food is to provide energy in the form of warmth – as true for a polar bear as a Botswanan beetle. Higher temperatures reduce the need for greater quantities of food since the body, any body, requires less energy to achieve the same level of life force.

    Free Rein, the British award-winning TV show you may not have heard of

    No BBC, I haven’t heard of it. Why are you telling me about it? Oh, the main star is black.

    The first 20 seconds of the video is enough to make you stop watching the video. The main star, who just happens to be black by pure chance, speaks with an IQ of 35, “I was like….. and you nailed it…… I’m totally the girl you see…. and I was like and she was like… you know?….like….yeah?”

    Those who can stomach the video all the way to 1m42s will observe the black star lied to get the acting job removing that opportunity from any of the 10,000’s of white UK girls that can actually ride a horse properly – something the UK is not short of.

    BBC Breakfast so we have the milk toast Christian Fraser bringing his Trump-bashing act to the sofa, a crusty female vicar for the newspaper review and a curate’s egg of a show – but mostly a rotten one.

    Prompted by the news that lots of prison officers have been caught out as being wrongens – naturally, this being the BBC – we get a talking head from the Prison Reform Trust (or some such) to tell it like it is.

    If I follow this chap’s argument correctly we should both spend lots more tax payer cash on the system… and let most of the cons out more often… and simultaneously not send them to choky so much in the first place.

    The BBC, eh? I turn off the TV as political reporter Chris Mason begins his gurning act on the subject of Brexit. I keep telling myself in those immortal words of Norman Stanley Fletcher “don’t let the bastards grind you down”

    I’ve just started on ‘The History of Jihad from Muhammad to ISIS’ by the brilliant Robert Spencer. Whist most here will already understand the point, I quote a part of the Introduction passage:
    “…….there is no period since the beginning of Islam that was characterized by large-scale peaceful coexistence between Muslims and non-Muslims. There was no time when mainstream and dominant Islamic authorities taught the equality of non-Muslims with Muslims or the obsolescence of jihad warfare…….There has always been, with virtually no interruption, jihad.”
    For the Globalists and the EU leadership (including our Treezer of course), the importation of virtually all muslims is a Grand Plan gone horribly wrong. I do not think, in the midst of the Globalists prime principle that all people are equal – there are no differences, they have ever realised that their primary foe – islam – is growing where it should not by using the opportunity presented to it by these grossly naïve people. Islam has been at war with the rest of the World since the 7th Century, perhaps even earlier and if the World leaders in their naivety think they can, long term, tame islam they are very much mistaken.
    “If history teaches us anything, it is simply this: every revolution carries within it the seeds of its own destruction. And empires that rise will one day fall.” – Princess Irulan (Dune, Frank Herbert) At the least, we witness this principle right now with the rapidly failing EU.
    But islam? Well, I’m convinced the people of Europe will eventually clean up the mess created by naive politicans and the UN/Soros. And that will surely be a bloody mess…………

    The BBC’s latest bit narrative shaping? ‘We are British Jews’ on Tuesday and Wednesday. The first programme looks at the shape of anti-Semitism in Britain today…any guesses that Corbyn and the Muslim ‘dirty little secret ‘ (#Mehdi Hasan) will get a mention in passing but the real problem wil be the rise of the Far-Right?

    Just seen this on ‘Is the BBC biased?’….

    YAB.PNG

    ‘Any Questions’, chaired by Shaun Ley, the panel being 3 to 1 anti-Brexit, the audience being solidly pro-Corbyn and anti-Brexit, the Chair being pro-EU did his best to downplay any criticism of Corbyn and any connection to anti-semitism. Just another day on the BBC.

    The second part travels for some reason to Israel and the West Bank meeting a settler and a Palestinian ‘victim’. Why? Is the BBC trying to make a connection between Israeli actions to defend itself and anti-semitism in Britain and thus, by happy coincidence, get Corbyn off the hook as it’s all Israel’s fault? Is this just an extended version of the BBC’s Tim Wilcox’s infamous claim that Jews should expect to be attacked due to Israeli actions in Gaza?…a double anti-semitic whammy….it is OK to attack Jews, there are justifications, and that justification is that Israeli is commiting war crimes and atrocities in Gaza…so Israel is denounced by a BBC reporter as an oppressive war criminal state. BBC feeding the anti-semitic beast growing in Europe whilst at the same time complaining about the rise of the Far-Right….but ignoring the main cause of that rise in anti-semitism….Muslim immigration to Europe which feeds off the likes of the BBC’s ‘evil Israel’ narrative.
