Start the Week Open Thread 22 April 2019

The Slaughter of Christians by Muslims continues to be under reported by the BBC and the rest of the main stream media . Yet even the slightest incident involving Muslims as victims gets the full treatment . I’m sure the BBC could explain this – surely ?

    The main feature on the BBC Website is ” Sri Lanka attacks ,what
    led to carnage.” It is an “interesting” article which is possibly
    inferring that Islamist’s may not be responsible for the GENOCIDE.
    Off course there is is a picture of an innocent Moslem little boy.
    I am reasonably literate, other than being a lousy speller. But I needed
    to use my dictionary to find out what certain words such as circuitous meant.
    Could it be that this atrocity had nothing to do with Islamic
    terrorism? Could it be the Tamil Tigers? Or maybe like Notre Dame
    several electrical faults in the churches?

    There’s a much bigger and immediate threat to us all , more so than ‘climate change’, ‘Brexit’, ‘Donald Trump’.

    Can you guess what it is yet?

      The main threat, soon to be headlines on the BBC. The far right LDC (London Dressmakers Club). Well known for their subversive creation of fabric shopping bags. Their sole purpose is to infiltrate the eco warriors and undermine them with breakable fabric bags requiring a reversion to plastic.

    What a sympathetic picture al beeb paints of the muslim minority in Sri Lanka, practically excusing terrorism.
    And the choice of pictures. One of some veiled women mourning (see? they were victims too) and one of a photogenic young boy peering at a smashed window (see? they’ve suffered violence in the past – who hasn’t in Sri Lanka? – little wonder they’ve turned to terrorism).

    The Grauniad seem to be learning misinformation tricks from al beeb – or perhaps the other way round.

    “Sri Lanka bombings were in retaliation for New Zealand attacks, minister says” screams the headline.

    So what you’re saying is, Sri Lanka is really the fault of the Far Right, i.e. Trump and Farage? Ha, we knew it all along.

    But read down the article (if you can bear to read the Guardian) and it’s not quite so simple:

    “But terrorism researchers have said the sophisticated nature of the attack and the equipment used would likely have required months of preparation, including conditioning the suicide bombers and testing the explosives.” In other words, way before Christchurch.

    So what they’re really saying is: Sri Lanka bombings were NOT in retaliation for New Zealand attacks.

    But never mind, the damage is done, the headline has planted the idea in readers’ minds (mostly bbc staff) which both exonerates the muslim murderers and incriminates the evil Far Right.

    Win-win. Job done. A good day at the office.

        It’s a good job that Christians aren’t retaliating for every Muslim attack. If so the world would be in chaos. But the current liberal policy of appeasing Islam isn’t going to end well. They will take what is on offer , steadily grow their numbers and strength in the West and then take over. The liberals have created an existentialist threat and have no idea what to do and so keep whistling in the dark hoping it doesn’t all explode tomorrow. But all the while the threat grows and our time is running out.

    What do people make of these comments taken from Breitbart discussions on Brexit Party?

    I must admit, I do think this sudden emergence of a Brexit Party is a little convenient and the support from the mainstream unusual.
    “You are all being fooled by the Brexit party. Sheeple to the slaughter. He is being funded by Murdoch, let that sink in.”

    “That’s the Plan, the LIBLABCON ESTABLISHMENT PARTIES are out to split the Anti LIBLABCON vote.
    Hence the timing of the appearance of the Brexit Party, the stench of the LIBLABCON ESTABLISHMENT PARTIES involvement in the Brexit Party is all over this.“

    “Who’s to say that Farage’s ‘Brexit’ MEP’s will be disruptive and angry. If, as I think, they are an Establishment set up, they could as easily be supine and compliant to the EU Dictatorship.”

The Brexit Party was not seen as worthy of a mention.

      Today I read in my paper that the Brexit Party is ‘far-right’. I believe that the MSM will soon go to all-out attack mode if they perceive it might be a danger… 🙁

      No one expects them to achieve much in the European Parliament. The important thing is to make a pro-Brexit point and right now voting for the Brexit Party is the way to do it, regardless of our feelings about how they’ve emerged or a preference for UKIP. I’d go so far as to say I’d vote for George Galloway to get Brexit over the line.

      If the Brexit Party is an Establishment stitch-up they may find they’ve created a monster they cannot control.

        Roland, they will achieve much in the European Parliament. I suspect that the EU will live to regret giving Treason May more time. Estimates for anti-EU grouping in the EU will be over 1/3 of the Parliament – with FN, AFD, plus the Dutch, Hungarians, Polish, Greeks, Italians all getting large minorities. Easily enough to destroy the smooth flow of the Elites and their status-quo.
        You know how often the EU Parliament lies almost empty, with a handful of MEP’s voting through dozens of laws? Imagine if, one day, the Anti-EU group were all whipped to be there and voted every law down. What would they do? Only have votes when all MEP’s were in Parliament? Whip ALL MEP’s to attend every voting session? (thus removing one of the main reasons for being an MEP – to get maximum, tax-free income for the least work.)
        No, things are going to be very different, and I predict that the entirely undemocratic EU will find they do not enjoy pretending to be a ‘democracy’, and follow the Roman Empire – allow a dozen ‘Senators’ to make every decision.
        Maybe this is the end of the road??

      ..It struck me as a racist poster probably placed by under cover HateyNoHoper people in an attempt to discredit Leave voters.

    With more devious dilly-dallying and obfuscation continuing in our Remain Parliament this week please note that the next EU Foreign Affairs Council takes place in a mere three weeks on 14 May.

    Most of our Defence sell-out since 2016 seems to have been undertaken by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office colluding with the Cabinet Office. EU toady Alan Duncan is the main culprit.

    Conservative leader hopefuls Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt and, before him, Boris Johnson must be complicit. I assume the MoD is also complicit, whether unwittingly or not.

    What further abominations will we be secretly signing up to on 14 May whilst attention is conveniently diverted by MEP elections or when/if TM will step down?

    This should be stopped. For all we know we may have already left (legal challenges)!

    In typical duplicitous fashion, the hateful BBC tries to have it both ways:

    First this:

    “…The Islamic State (IS) group claimed the attack on Tuesday via its news outlet. Sri Lanka’s government has blamed the blasts on local Islamist group National Thowheed Jamath (NTJ).

    A BBC correspondent in Sri Lanka says the IS statement should be treated cautiously. As with previous attacks that the group says it carried out, it has provided no evidence for the claim.”
    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-48019189

    But just dig a little deeper and there’s this:

    “…But given how small NTJ are, officials suspect that it wasn’t acting alone.

    “We don’t see that only a small organisation in this country can do all that,” Mr Senaratne said. “We are now investigating the international support for them, and their other links, how they produced the suicide bombers here, and how they produced bombs like this.”

    And while not naming the NTJ directly, the Sri Lankan president’s office echoed this belief that whichever group was behind the attacks had help from abroad.”

    Perhaps if they did not stir so much hysteria it would cost less? Maybe tell people that ‘protesting’ is infantile and gives law enforcement a massive headache? That Police force which the BBC is constantly reminding us is underfunded? Perhaps they could focus on preventing black men from stabbing each other rather than curbing the tantrums of predominantly middle class w**kers?

    Well, it hasn’t taken long at all for the BBC to return to its normal, pathetic agenda. Or rather, continue in the same old mealy mouthed leftie way.
    Today’s Politics Live was nearly all about climate change protests, and then some blather about Change UK’s Euro election launch – with no coverage of the Brexit Party’s impressive candidates launch.
    And of course the massacre of Christians in Sri Lanka is already being sidelined, unlike the days of wall to wall outrage venting after the Christchurch attack.
    Meanwhile, the BBC website also barely mentions the Brexit Party candidates press conference, just listing them under the politics tab way down the end of the story about the obviously far more important (!) Change U.K. launch, with most of that being focused on Rachel Johnson and, of course, liberal elite darling Gavin (I was once an impartial BBC journalist) Esler.
    Normal service resumed….BBC biased to its core.

    The NYT admitted yesterday that the Steele dossier, upon which the whole Mueller witch hunt depended, was probably false and , not to put too fine a point on it , a pack of lies. They even wrote that severe doubts about its accuracy were noted by the FBI in March 2017 , two months before a Mueller was even appointed! So proving that the President was right all along, it was a set up intended to frame him , in other words a coup. They are even trying to claim that the MSM and the CIA/ FBI were probably fed and swallowed Russian misinformation!
    For the NYT to be casting doubts on the Steele dossier means that there is something afoot. Either the Dems and MSM are going to start blaming each other for the farago of the past two years and try to avoid prosecution, or, there is a deal being struck between Trump and his persecutors. They come semi clean and admit there was nothing behind the allegations and agree to treat him fairly and honestly in future and he doesn’t demand a full and thorough investigation into the coup. I hope it’s the former because I want to see the conspirators in prison for years and I want the dumb liberals who believed all these lies made to look the stupid gullible fools that they are. It’s the only way to restore the rule of law in the USA . If the US falls every other Western country will fall.

    How many Jesus films were there on telly over the last (Christian holiday) weekend? Or perhaps something Jewish for Passover?

    I did 2 searches on different days and found only one dramatisation on the National Geographic Channel. National Geographic. Are they “far right”? Having the word National in their title and showing a drama series based on the life of the founder of the Christian faith is a bit suspicious is it not?

    Don’t I remember as a child there always being Jesus films on telly around this particular holiday? There were a handful of famous films that were oft repeated. What have the programmers of Telly-Land done with the Biblical epics we knew? The amount of repeats they do of other films leaves them no excuse for the omission.

      There were two –

      The Robe on Saturday
      And ‘Risen’ on Sunday night

      The latter is the best of them all in my view
      But you are right – the ‘regular ‘ films were missing .

      Lucy,

      Plenty of modern fast movies with young pretty, sexy white females looking at camera pointing handguns at ya. “Freeze”.

      Modern movies – If you’ve seen one you’ve seen them all. Note: the IF? I must confess I’m simply going off their unavoidable trailers.

        Nearly as bad are the stupid TV adds that come into our living rooms trying to get the money out of your wallet are these:

        “DFS SALE MUST END SUNDAY”

        But they don’t tell the silly buyers that:

        “BUT IT STARTS ALL OVER AGAIN THE NEXT DAY 8 AM”

        Most are of MDF construction and collapse if you get the sofa too wet. And at a bargain @ £1200 a pop that’s quite a sofa.

          Just on that point I went into DFS and despite them advertising their stuff is made in the UK – I asked and the sales guy admitted most was now made in Poland – in fact we found one item with a UK label on it. They make out it’s made in the UK by saying things like our designers – or cloth designers etc so basically little to none of it is made in the UK – So avoid them if you can – however found a UK mattress maker

            You are very lucky. I found our mattress and it was made in England. Somewhere down south. And a good one it is.

            Can’t go up stairs to lift mattress up to see where in UK as it would spill all my collection of bread crumbs n stale biscuits onto our foreign made carpet.

      Thanks Taffman, but be careful. Someone will be monitoring your activity and suspect you’re a white supremacist for even suggesting we should have a happy St George’s Day.

      A few years back I attended a St George’s Day event with knights and dragons. It was a spectacular day with some very impressive horsemanship and a convincing dragon (they used a fire extinguisher to blow ‘smoke’ through its nose). When the chap playing St George stood up in his stirrups, drew his sword and bellowed, ‘For God, For England and St George!’ the bloke next to me wiped a tear from his eye and sheepishly admitted he was Welsh. That brought a tear to mine. We shared a precious moment there :0)

    I see that POTUS is visiting the UK to mark the 75th anniversary of the D Day landings no doubt he will also pay homage to the thousands of US servicemen who died liberating Europe from Adolf Hitler (BBC words and here’s me thinking it was Germany). So no doubt the lefties will be out in force screaming and shouting and making complete dicks and dickeses of themselves. They won’t understand the sacrifice of others they have had it too soft they don’t understand that the might of the US has prevented further world wars. So let them shout abuse at the POTUS but let’s see him protected by the First Airborne and see how they react to those soft snowflake arses insulting the US and it’s brave young soldiers who died for them….

        As an aside – there doesn’t seem to much of a whip round for the victims and their families . The Hungarian Government is to donate a bit of cash but there are hundreds of victims .

      Yes I think incitement is a fair assessment of the BBC stance – together with a helpful reminder of what happened the last time the US President visited.

      Just to add a bit more fizz – the Emir of Londonistan wants money for failing to police the spoilt green brats last week as well as more cash for the Presidential visit ..

      And

      The Speaker of the Commons has suggested that he will not invite President to address the two Houses of Parliament – even though the President of China got to do it .

    For those of you that are unlucky enough not to be able to

    in the capitol. In particular Riz Lateef and Assad Ahmad the
    chief presenters are at the forefront for this agenda.
    Their Anarchist and Trotskyist editors , and researchers are now
    preparing their programme for the State visit of Donald Trump.
    We in London will be given a birds eye view of the forthcoming
    violent demonstrations against Trump. The Londonistan reporters
    will be right at the heart of the demonstrations. Aren’t we lucky

    Still, makes a change for a young girl to be grooming the naive, gullible adults.

    Very creepy interview with her by Nick Robinson this morning…isn’t it beyond bizarre that the BBC’s flagship political programme gives its primetime interview spot to someone who is not a scientist, who has no knowledge of the science and very little grasp of the realities of life…and they won’t talk to Nigel Lawson…because he’s not an ‘expert’ on climate change…lol…however he is an expert on economics which is why the GWPF was set up, to examine the economics of climate change. And yet the BBC fills the airwaves with fanatical greens who want to turn us all into hunter gatherers and not a rational sceptic in sight.

    We’re doomed…not because of climate change but because the climate change loons are in charge….they’ll kill us all off yet.

      Pug,
      An amusing point you make about the child grooming the adults…

      To me, Greta is just a powerfully boring kid but I can see why she might be regarded as charismatic by a certain type of severely earnest lefty green fanatic. Greta’s autism is the kind of handicap that is seen by superstitious twits as proof that she must be touched with divine wisdom. Her artlessly direct way of speaking persuades the twits that her platitudes are diamond-sharp insights. And her extreme youth suggests to them that it must be a fresh perspective.
      It’s all poppycock of course. It’s not the charisma of the messenger that’s important. It’s the strength of the arguments.

      pug,

      My next door neighbours have 2 over 30 asperger males. You should hear the noises from their house every single day. One of their bedrooms is back to back with our bedroom and he sounds as if he’s having weight lifting lessons without a trainer/teacher. (they don’t believe in carpets, hence all their noises become our noise by adoption, and they don’t believe in any kind of medication – but thats another story) maybe they should then perhaps they won’t be so noisy.

      I believe people who suffer with that usually jump up and shout all kinds of embarrassing niceties.

      I think thats why the other day she must have been shouting some of those “niceties” and thats why those MPs invited her.
