This is not strictly to do with the BBC, but there is a strong connection between that most-trusted broadcaster and the Farcebookers, Twattterati, YouFlubbers and others. They all seem intent on destroying the good in Western society and beyond and elevating the bad. They just go about it in more or less extreme ways and with varied degrees of deceit and subterfuge.
The eminent Donald J Trump hosted a group of conservative media personalities last Thursday. Diamond and Silk were there, reminding me of that glorious day in Congress when they fought back, without being intimidated, against mainly-black Democrats who were trying their dirty ‘Democratic’ tricks to discredit them.
Trump invited the two big black women onto the stage, called them “beautiful” and hugged and kissed them. Perhaps that will give the lefty media pause next time they insist that he is a ‘racist’ and a ‘misogynist’ but I doubt they can find the pause button when it comes to insulting the president, even when he isn’t their president. Does the BBC’s Anthony Zurcher even have a pause button when it comes to vilifying Trump?
He was on top form, joking with the audience and proving how quick-thinking he is when he brushed off a fly and then asked how a fly got into the White House.
Here he discusses the fact that people who want to join him on Social Media are blocked.
Here he invites a leading First Amendment lawyer up to speak about the deplatforming and harassment of political opponents so rife in Social Media.
The most important thing to be gleaned from the event is this: he intends to step up the fight against the Social Media censors and propagandists, and when Donald J Trump says he is going to do something ….
It’s unclear exactly how he intends to do this, but I think that is just Trump keeping his powder dry till the right time.
The event is on YouFlub, paradoxically, and it doesn’t look like it’s been restricted in any way so we are not quite in dire straits yet.
