Weekend Open Thread 21 December 2018

The Christian tradition of Christmas must cause great angst to the Far Left BBC . Concentrating on the secular will be the remedy as well as being ‘inclusive ‘ and ‘diverse

To all our pagan colleagues – happy solstice

    Earn £300 if you introduce a driver who stays in employment at various trucking firms .shortage of drivers even now due to robust market .

    Can’t get French windows installed yet as all builders and construction firms are booked up , some for all of 2019 .

    Good news eh ? Makes a change from the BBCs constant whinging about the economy ” due to Brexit ” .

      Or move to France and have truly French windows pre-installed. Property may well be attractively priced ‘due to Frexit’ when Macron is ousted, though some of the window glass in the more urban areas might need replacement. On the other hand fresh air allowed to circulate will clear the tear gas more rapidly.

    I am still ruminating on the fact that the West seems to be intent on raising the next generation as Eloi. The latest example of the poor girls who wandered into a dodgy country armed only with a smile and their naivety and they think that will keep em safe.. We can see the same naivety being increasingly exhibited in their own countries . Its truly depressing..

      The raped white girls of Europe, however, deserved better.
      The rapists are guilty.
      But also guilty is the left, and we must never forget it, or forgive it.
      When the left is just a bad memory, it must feature prominently in our history books, as a warning to our descendants.

      Fed.. Situational awareness is absolutely discouraged because it involves making judgements about people and that would never do! Although making sweeping judgements about white men and leave voters are the obvious exception.

    • gb123 says:

      I think not teaching situational awareness is partly due to the teachers themselves. Some of them seem to have exactly the same naivety.

      An example of this was the teacher who got herself killed in 2017 going solo by canoe into an area of the Brazilian Amazon. She was warned by the locals and the local officials that it was full of traffickers and was offered an escort. I read even the police wouldn’t go there solo. She insisted on going because she didn’t want to waste time and even wrote a slightly mocking post on her Facebook page.

      I am constantly amazed at the lack of street smartness and the belief that the whole world is some kind of leafy peaceful suburb.

    Her various videos are really good. Nail on head sort of good.
    Notice the number of YouTube broadcasters that now, very openly, talk about the, “Globalist” conspiracies? It’s all rapidy becoming them and us. ‘Them’ includes our Treason May needless to say.
    We are at war, no doubt about it in my mind.

      I think she is right. We are in a war and our enemies want only our annihilation. We have already won all the arguments. The left are not listening. To draw a very severe parallel, under the Third Reich many people didn’t want to believe what was really happening. Even many of the Jewish victims didn’t believe what was being done to them up to the time they were on a transport to the East like so many cattle. I’ve read a lot of Holocaust literature, some didn’t believe until they could smell the fumes from the crematorium at Auschwitz just how strong the hatred was.

      We aren’t all Jews. We aren’t all Christians. We aren’t all white. But we face an enemy with irreconcilable differences. They don ‘t want peace. What the lady in the video said- they want us gone, we are deplorable to them. We may be a long way from a gas chamber scenario but the demonic hatred is there and has become entrenched in some places (BBC?). The hatred can be whipped up on demand. We’ve been watching it happen for two years.

        The writing on the wall was confirmed for me at the time of the Salman Rushdie fatwah.
        The faux support for him was unbelievably transparent. The response of the great and the good was basically you have yourself to blame, and protection was provided grudgingly.
        Many years after the fatwah the Sunday Times ( plse correct if wrong) serialised an article by one of his protection officers that told you what an arsehole he was.
        But the lack of reaction by the majority here gave the green light to muslims and their virtue signalling tossers in politics and the media.

        A few years ago I couldn’t decide if the then leaders of the West, Cameron, Obama, Merkel etc, were naive or evil in the way they were selling the West down the river. Was it just that they didn’t realise the consequences or was it that they were acting deliberately to bring down the countries that elected them? Well I think now that it is abundantly clear that they and many others are embarked on a plan to create a homogeneous world. I assume that they believe it is for the best but increasingly ordinary folks , but still not enough, realise that it is almost certain to end in disaster.
        The question which I grapple with is why on earth do so many people Seem to have swallowed the idea that Globalism is good for them and theirs. Even allowing for the non stop propaganda of the BBC et al it is hard to accept that people must be so stupid as to not be able to see the consequences of Globalism and the dreadful impact it will have on the way of life in the West. But stupid they must be , even a moments thought will reveal that allowing millions of third worlders into our countries cannot possibly end well. Of course if the MSM was neutral and not completely controlled by Globalists and reported the truth impartially even the dimmest idiots and snowflakes would be up in arms against third world mass migration.
        The founders of this site were right to realise years ago that the BBC was rapidly undermining the country and brainwashing the British into accepting their own demise.

        Agree Lucy we have been at war with those that follow the teachings of Islam for 100’s of years. However now the dam stupid EU with the support of Chancellor Merkel have opened the Gates of Vienna to allow floods of Muslims to invade Europe. The damage has been done as we can be witnessed in Sweden and now smothering our Christian values here in the UK. Irrespective of what those that think they know, the Muslim community, it will never really integrate into our society their teachings of Islam would never allow it, therefore it is purely a superfictial consideraton, that their Imans allow. Islam is a political ideology formostly, the Muslim Brotherhood has always announced its goal to impose sharia law to establish an Islamic state. There can be only one lifestyle, and it will consume all others. With a Home Secreatry and a London Mayor both true Muslims they are off to a flying start. We must for goodness sake and at all costs avoid having a Muslim Prime Minister. Happy Christmas.

      Thanks for this, G. It sent chills up my spine, she is absolutely right. It has gone far beyond the time for debate, and the elites are arrogant in the extreme – maybe they sense victory? They will not listen, they do not want to hear us; we are deplorable to them and cannot be tolerated. I wonder what OUR Military leaders are thinking? I ‘woke up’ following the 2016 Referendum…quite late, but at least I woke up. The majority of my lovely, smart, deluded friends are still firmly in the Matrix and refusing to take the red pill. Up is down, right is wrong, left is ‘right’, right is far right/extreme and so on. JFK’s point about the light showing the way through darkness brings to mind a film with Danny de Vito…He wanted his house to be seen from Space, so he kept adding more and more Christmas lights until finally the satellite image picked up his home. It took time, but each additional light mattered…

        ” I wonder what OUR Military leaders are thinking….”. Not current military – recently retired. But, I have to assume that the same mindset is prevalent in the current leadership. After all, they were no doubt apprentices to the retirees. Again, well worth a watch to hear what those retirees have to say:

I have huge respect and admiration for our military forces; they do not deserve to be treated like this by Parliament. Drain the deep, deep incompetent, useless, fetid swamp.

It was they that pushed forward the policy for a Muslim invasion of Western Europe, to help subjugate the native populations and what a good job they are making of it !

            A note from Alan Jan 1st 2017 made such a relevent point to what you and I believe Fubard-Liberal Gangsterism, to quote: Who are the Fascists, who are the Gangsters?
            Farage wants to control immigration. He is denounced by the BBC as a Fascist, a Nazi even. But is he the Fascist?
            Or, are those who want to control what you say, what you think, how you behave, who want to control every aspect of your life, the real Fascists?’ We have been living in a version of 1984 for a long time now as our voices have been suppressed and our thoughts manipulated or made ‘unacceptable’, a war declared on ‘Britishness’. It is a paradox that the loudest alarmists of the Liberal coterie declare we are heading towards the 1930’s again as they raise alarming but totally imaginary fantasies of Hitler on the march once more…but in one respect they are right, the vilification, demonisation and attacks, some actually physical, the death threats, those aimed at Leave voters, is certainly reminiscent of the 1930’s. As my note stated 22/12 the BBC is under the strict control of the Elites-their policies whatever they are for us will prevail as far as that duplicitous lot (BBC) pump it out as you say. Still I intend to enjoy my Christmas day as a Christian with my family-how fortunate I am to still be free to so.

    There’s a couple of quick references to English heritage — a Beefeater walking at the Tower and Tower Bridge opening — but 99% of it is a progressive mashup, box-ticking porn for diversity gruppenfuhrers.

    For the line “London is deep rooted”, they go with a clip of some diverse ethnic women drummers. A picture really is worth a thousand words.

      This Muslim cannot claim to be English-he may have a British/European Passport and therefore is from the United Kingsom but NOT of England. I like many can claim to be English through over 1500yrs of my white ancestry, but those who have come from other countries and in particular Asia/Middle East/Africa cannot claim such a privilege or right. We can only realise that with a rising majority in London of those that follow the teachings of Islam how this Muslim became London’s Mayor-if anything should have been a wake up call that certainly was and should have been. Happy Christmas whilst we still have it !

    The BBC is in full climate catastrophe mode today. The Jeremy Vine show are giving this propaganda the full wellie, interviewing the young Scandinavian lass who gave such a popular speech the other day, warning us of climate apocalypse.
    They even introduced a little time traveling skit whereby a roaming journalist visits Britain in the year 2078.
    He paints an ugly picture.
    The Shard has melted, what’s left of London is unrecognisable and there then follows a profoundly unamusing piece (which I think was supposed to be funny) about the Gatwick drone story.
    I just wondered if they might ever come across a young Scandinavian lass who wanted to say something about the horrendous rape epidemic her country is suffering; the crime, the terrorism, the cultural alienation…and how the media are covering these thing up.
    They could have another BBC journo’ traveling forward to the year 2078 and visiting what was once called London, but is now known as Londonistan. “It’s unrecognisable” he tells us. “There’s an ISIS flag above 10 Downing Street, St Paul’s Cathedral is a mosque and all the women are scurrying about dressed as Batman.” “There are beheadings every day on Parliament Square, The Palace of Westminster is now called Caliphate Central and Buckingham Palace is home to Mullah Mohamed and his thirty wives.”
    They’re never going to do it, are they…

    Maybe I missed Toady watch at the end of the last thread. But I switched on Radio 4 to find out if Gatwick has reopened. Why has Martha K been sent to Afghanistan? I would have thought Mishal would have wanted that gig to get nearly back to visit some of her relatives with travel paid for by the BBC. Good PR for the army but I didn’t learn anything new.

    But Mishal is really not up to the job back at the studio. I heard her interviewing the man from Gatwick, demanding to know why it was ok now to restart flights. It was obvious that the man didn’t want to disclose how the decision has been made or how the circumstances have changed. But Mishal couldn’t understand that there may be security decisions around it (or too stupid) or maybe she just isn’t quick witted enough to change her line of questioning. But it doesn’t make interest listening and I switched off.

    COMPLAINT submitted to the BBC.

    Programme: The Jeremy Vine Show
    Subject: Interview with Extinction Rebellion Mob.

    I have just listened to a most irresponsible interview with a bunch of deluded and ignorant activists from the so-called Extinction Rebellion organisation. Following the day of over a 100,000 passengers holidays being ruined by a probable self-appointed ‘environmental’ activist, the BBC see fit to encourage these idiots by allowing them free air time.

    These young and ill-informed people were allowed to spout their pseudo-science and pure fake facts with virtually no correction from anyone at the BBC. You supposedly have a ‘Reality Check’ team when it comes to thwarting Brexit, but where are they when these activists make claims that cannot be backed up by proper science?

    The BBC are complicit in peddling these climate scare stories and therefore promote these type of direct action groups that disrupt the lives of millions. For example, the Climate Change Act is costing the UK billions a year that will have virtually no impact on world temperatures (even if CO2 has any impact on temps – not yet proven). This has resulted in higher energy costs that effect the poor more than anyone else, and a national grid that is vulnerable to mere changes in the weather. Why does the BBC NEVER cover these stories. The billions wasted on renewable subsidies could benefit the economy, NHS and social services is so many ways, yet you never cover this scandal.

    How can the BBC justify NOT including any scientists who question the global warming consensus (which btw doesn’t exist). By your current rules you would not have interviewed Albert Einstein, Stephen Hawking, and many other trail-blazing scientists because as REAL scientists, they question the consensus.

    I pay my license fee (under threat of going to prison if I don’t) yet you seem hell-bent on spending UK people’s money on promoting fringe causes that are in effect anti-British. You are no-more than a mouthpiece for environmental groups that are anti-growth, anti-capitalist organisations in another guise. Disgusting.

    I won’t hold my breath waiting for a reply.

      Dear BBC £3.5 billion paid under threat of prison complaints department,

      Could you revisit the 2009 UK MP expenses again, I would not like to find out that MPs like Tony Blair have ran to the shredder prior to your investigations.

      Here are some details, can you use Journalists who are avoiding the BBC Gary ‘£1.75m’ Lineker Pay Gap and see why an MP on £77K salary tops up their money with a job giving them £65K extra a year.

      Maybe find other MPs on such amazing schemes and why they are getting free tickets to concerts when they have so much cash sloshing around in their MP expenses accounts.

      Chuka Umunna MP, Streatham (tax payer pays him £77K per year) is being paid £65,040 a year Advisory Position at Global Progress (London) Ltd …

      1) Look into what he produces for £65K a year.
      2) Look at who owns the company and other players – Tony Blair is linked to it.
      3) Find other MPs doing the same.
      4) Ensure they are paying taxes on the extra money.
      5) Maybe interview them and ask some questions rather than how they feel today?

      For a head start you can find the details on :

      https://www.theyworkforyou.com/regmem/?p=24950

      https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/11079851/filing-history

      Good luck and let me know how you get on,
      p.s. I also see that MPs claim their MP Office BBC TV Licenses Tax on their expenses, thus the UK tax payer has to pay their own TV License and their MP’s TV License. Might want to consider stopping this for the 650 MPs.

      I thought Jeremy Vine came very close to incitement to cause a criminal act. There was a good half-hour of the programme devoted to justifying shutting down air transport.

      We had that brainwashed Swedish girl, again, with her ‘power to the people’ – what about the ‘people’ that want to go on holiday or heat their homes or want to fly to heated hotels for ‘climate change’ conferences?

      I get tired of £700k p.a. Vine, ‘man of the people’, telling us how he has to ‘save the planet’ for his daughters and how he can’t afford to pay for his finance plan car.

      P.S. Wouldn’t a two-hundred foot high Thames Barrier have to sit in a two-hundred foot high valley at least in order to protect London? Where is that geographic feature coming from, climate change?

          As for “LIVE AID” – I was cynical then and have never changed my opinion on this poverty porn jamboree. Chucking money at some of the most corrupt and savage countries on earth was always going to end well wasnt it?

          Maybe naive old “SIR” Bob should have employed some reverse psychology and raised money and sent them Khalashnikovs instead, at least that is something they might have understood the concept or alternatively they might have “sold” them and bought aid instead – Still at least it kept “Sir” Bob s career going.

    I find it interesting that in a 30th anniversary piece BBC are quite happy to say that Pan Am 103 was brought down by a “terrorist bomb”, yet after the London bombings that same BBC would not use the word “terrorist” to describe the perpetrators.

       38 likes

    • TrueToo says:

      Anders Thomasson,

      Years ago on this very website we debated BBC guidelines on the dreaded ‘T’ word. In its wisdom, the BBC had then decided it was OK to apply the word terrorist to an action, but not to the person engaging in terrorism. They soon dropped that like a hot potato and briefly used the dreaded ‘T’ word only when quoting others who used it.

      That in itself soon became too much for the sensitive souls at the BBC and they would not use the word at all, even when, for example, quoting Israeli spokesmen after a terrorist attack by Palestinians on Israeli civilians. They would substitute militant for terrorist. In other words, they would lie about what those Israelis had actually said.

      This mangling of the English language was particularly shameful during the horrific Beslan slaughters, carried out by Islamic terrorists on innocent children and teachers. I recall that a BBC employee used the dreaded ‘T’ word once when the story first broke but that quickly changed as the BBC proved for the nth time that it is far more concerned about not hurting Muslim feelings than reporting accurately.

      And all the years since, as Islamic terrorists have rampaged across the planet, raping, slaughtering and enslaving anyone who doesn’t look and think like them, the BBC has strained what’s left of its creativity to come up with words like fighters and attackers in order to obfuscate and lie about these latter-day Nazis and try to shield their horrific acts from public scrutiny.

      The BBC should change its name to LBC – Lying British Corporation.
