Start the Week Open Thread 29 October 2018

Budget Day .  The Far Left BBC will be talking Austerity and moaning about the pre brexit economy because of low unemployment , low interest rates and higher basic tax allowances .

 

It will  be a waste of time really because if we are lucky enough to get out of the EU without agreement the sums will all change .

The anti Trump propaganda will ratchet upon in front of the midterms next week .

All Souls is on Thursday

just a friendly reminder – reasonable language please …

Intelligence Squared has Webb preening and Corbyn getting bashed

I drafted the following contribution before I saw the news of the horrific shooting at the synagogue in Pittsburgh

I appreciate the opportunity to expose the vile anti-Semitism that leads to these attacks, whether coming from Jeremy Corbyn or any other source, including the BBC itself – often disguised as criticism of Israel.

Here’s the earlier draft:

Intelligence Squared US is an interesting debating forum, left-leaning since it’s filled to the brim with academics, but still worth watching because of the differing perspectives from the knowledgeable panel members and the often-fiery debates. There are several on the IQ2 US site and on YouTube stretching back many years.

Intelligence Squared UK, on the other hand, is not only a pale imitation of its US counterpart but has also mangled the US format beyond recognition – with ‘debates’ that are actually left-wing echo chambers with no room for dissent. And so you have Justin Webb, lately BBC North America ‘Editor’, chairing a lefty fest around the following leading question:

Is the Trump presidency causing irreparable damage to America?

For those of my esteemed colleagues who might watch the thing, I should state that Webb engages in a long, excruciating introduction, which is well worth skipping, except that, at 3 minutes in, he has something to say about his ‘interview’ of Obama, putting a humorous slant on it. I watched it at the time, and it was apparent that Webb had no idea how to conduct the interview and sat there mesmerised by the great man, like a rabbit caught in the headlights of his car. Well, I guess Webb’s capacity for self delusion is boundless. He probably also thinks he’s a good journalist rather than a propagandist.

There is one panel member, the lady journalist, who has a couple of sensible things to say about the topic, but apart from that the audience is also predominately anti-Trump and the entire thing is probably a waste of time.

However, while surfing through the IQ debates I stumbled on a podcast questioning whether Jeremy Corbyn is fit to become Prime Minister.

This was much more of a real debate, with Howard Jacobson and Anna Soubry crossing swords with Ash Sarkar (I’d never heard of her, luckily) and Chris Williamson (of whom unfortunately I had).

Jacobson is really impressive, especially with his scathing and hilarious opening attack on Corbyn for his anti-Semitism.

Apparently there will be a video of the podcast at some stage. Might be worth watching it with the sound muted when Sarkar and Williamson open their mouths.

The Far Left BBC quickly buried the conviction of “the Huddersfield 20 Muslim racist paedophiles” and as it does – moved quickly on . How will the BBC perform regarding the political show trial of Tommy Robinson on Tuesday ? You can bet the Muslim paedo racist gang which is the cause of TRs   brush with the law won’t feature much in this crooked country but his past will be used as the usual weapon?

With a 158 days until Brexit the remainers will be marching every weekend or looking for jobs with tax avoiders like Facebook .

Weekend Open Thread 20 October 2018

I don’t know what to write. The BBC need not broadcast anti Brexit propaganda because the government is failing to represent the outcome of the Referendum without any help .

Elsewhere the constant propaganda against President Trump is becoming worn out as he continues to repair his country after years of Democratic swamp rule .

For those marching for Remaining on Saturday  ( disputed numbers of course)  – it’s good that you still have the freedom to do so because people with out of fashion views find themselves becoming enemies of the State – with political trials and summary sentences .

I have posted this early because of the recent server issues …

The Far Left BBC and the rest of the main stream media reported -with the usual bias – on a march on Saturday by the Democratic Football Lads Alliance. The opposition was described as ‘anti fascist’ therefore labelling the Lads as fascist . This has turned into a term of abuse now – or just for a person with whom one doesn’t agree. From traffic wardens to American presidents the term ‘fascist’ is thrown out as easy hate.

As for Brexit – the BBC will be stirring the pot again to support the EU against Britain in yet another “crunch week” ….

Start the Week Open Thread 8 October 2018

The BBC and mainstream media will spend a bit of time working out how President Trump’s nominee was appointed to the US Supreme Court despite the MSM onslaught against him . Then it’s back to fighting the November elections on behalf the Democrat Party .

Meanwhile at home we will witness the BBC undermining Brexit negotiations by blaming any piece of bad news on the People’s vote of 2 years ago .

 

Just a small plea again – language moderation is requested Please …

The Age and the Sydney Morning Herald mirror the BBC

I hope my esteemed colleagues will indulge me if I present a case against the Sydney Morning Herald and The Age, rather than against the BBC. The latter is only guilty by association here since it practices the precise blinkered left-wing ideology demonstrated by these afore-mentioned publications.

Nick Miller, an alleged journalist ‘reporting’ for these papers, wrote an article purporting to enlighten his readers about anti-Semitism in Europe. Instead, it appears he set out to deliberately mislead them by pretending that the threat to Jews is overwhelmingly from the right.

So I emailed him:

To Nick Miller,

I refer to your article in the Sydney Morning Herald and The Age on anti-Semitism in Europe published on September 7th.

I note that you have concentrated almost exclusively on anti-Semitism from the right in countries such as Greece and Poland. While there certainly is a disturbing increase in anti-Semitism coming from the right in a few European countries, it is eclipsed by the anti-Semitism coming from Muslims in Europe – most prevalent in France, Sweden and even the UK, where the unholy alliance of Jeremy Corbyn with radical Islam and his unwillingness to expel anti-Semites from the Labour Party has caused a number of Jews to doubt their future in a country where Corbyn is likely to become Prime Minister.

Yet one has to scroll practically to the end of your article to find one paragraph on the very real threat posed to the Jews of Europe by Muslims:

“Both Williams and Schnurbein point to anti-Jewish sentiment imported to Europe in recent years through the influx of migrants and refugees from the Middle East and North Africa where a bias against Jews “has been culturally produced over the last 70 years”, Williams says.”

And that statement is then immediately minimised here:

“But the effect should not be over-emphasised. Europe was not a clean slate – indeed, a survey in 2014 found that anti-Semitic sentiment was more prevalent in Greece than in Iran.”

And it is virtually discounted here:

“Williams says Muslim communities should not be made a convenient scapegoat for Europe’s rise in anti-Semitism. “It’s not something that is coming from without, it’s something that needs to be dealt with within,” he says.”

I battle to understand that statement. This is not a matter of looking for scapegoats, but dealing with very real Muslim anti-Semitism, both from without and within Europe.

Regarding the 2014 survey, Greek Jews pointed out that there has been no violence against Jews in Greece, as opposed to France.

In recent years there have been frequent violent attacks and horrific murders of Jews by Muslims in France, and French Jews are emigrating in increasing numbers:

And the situation in Sweden is also dire:

“Historically, anti-Semitism in Sweden could mainly be attributed to right-wing extremists. While this problem persists, a study from 2013 showed that 51 percent of anti-Semitic incidents in Sweden were attributed to Muslim extremists. Only 5 percent were carried out by right-wing extremists; 25 percent were perpetrated by left-wing extremists:”

Frankly, Mr. Miller, you do the Jews of Europe a disservice by obfuscating and minimising Muslim anti-Semitism to the point of non-existence. You also do a disservice to the truth.

Regards, etc.

And he failed to respond. Since my email did not bounce back, I assume either he read it or someone in his office, or whatever, did.

So today I gave the Sydney Morning Herald and The Age some info on their ‘Feedback’ page, pasting my email to Miller in and politely telling them that Miller’s article does no credit to their publications and that as long as the mainstream, left-wing media, so prevalent across the globe, insists on obfuscating and filtering news through its rigid ideology, social media will continue to be a viable alternative.

I didn’t mention fine sites such as this one, but Google might help them find such genuine information, in the unlikely event they’ll be seeking it out.

I look forward to the mainstream media becoming more and more irrelevant, something they richly deserve.

Weekend Open Thread 6 October 2018

The Far Left BBC will turn the possible  US Supreme Court victory for President Trump into a defeat as it shows its’ full bias.Next biased attack please …

Russians are  making themselves easy targets as they try to muscle in on BBC territory to undermine the West. We are meant to believe the Russians want to hack the NHS – a culture still using fax machines to avoid the accountability of emails . Perhaps they’d favour us with hacking the BBC.

Then the House of Clowns returns after another little holiday joining with the BBC to block Brexit .
