  2. Brainwashing British Children says:

    The most vicious piece of anti-British propaganda I have ever read was the lead story on the BBC’s news channel for children throughout Friday. It was so long and detailed the BBC even had a summary article on it:

    2020-10-02-1225-cbbc-newsround-todays-headlines-words-01.jpg
    2020-10-02-1927-00.jpg
    https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/54356053

    This article emotionally targets British children into shame and hatred of their cultural history and incites them to topple, remove, burn down statues, monuments, street signs and buildings. This piece of anti-British propaganda was written with the help of Dr. Katie Donington a young white feminist academic activist who is Senior Lecturer in History at London South Bank University. It is academic activists like her that have been directly responsible for inciting their students and local communities (through outreach programmes) onto rampages through cities destroying anything they are told is connected with British colonialism and slavery.

    The BBC are using the British Black History Month to incite British children to further shame and hatred of their own British Culture and urging them into direct action for destruction.

    That the BBC are allowed to do this just shows how far the British political system has been allowed to sink into the abyss, with people voting for mainstream parties out of habit or reputation whereas in fact none of them actually care about you.

      ‘ere Pete, can you see a City in that picture?

      That picture, Dudley? No, I cannot. And I’m not looking at it through the bottom of a pint mug.

      Well Pete, I’ve tried both of those views – pint mug and ViewDirect – and even resorted to a glass of the magnifying variety ‘sans liquide’ without success. I can’t see a City there at all. You got time for another pint?

      These people start our history at around the time slavery was happening. Anything before that is deemed not to exist. The cathedrals of the middle ages were clearly built on the profits of slavery. The driving force behind the early railway builders was Quaker money. They were some of the worst slavers of all.
      The great wealth of this fertile land that really made this country was homegrown. Crops and sheep and cattle. In vast numbers. At the Weyhill Autumn fair upwards of 200,000 sheep were sold. That was in the early 19th century.
      We have been blessed with really productive land and made the best of it. You could reverse the argument and say that this wealth enabled those merchants to build the ships and become slavers. Poor men do not make good slave traders.
      As usual the truth is much more complicated.

      As usual, the BBC uses censorship to produce its propaganda.

      They used to call it the first British Empire, followed by the second British Empire. The first British Empire ended with the loss of America and the abolition of slavery. In Hull they have a statue of a Hull MP called William Wilberforce. Hull was the third biggest port in the first British Empire, its trade was based on the Baltic and Whaling, then in the second British Empire it was based on the industrial revolution and fishing.

      Victory over Napoleon made the British Empire the worlds biggest ever superpower. With the surrender of France and Spain. France and Spain agreed to end the slave trade and give Britain some French and Spanish colonies in the West Indies. The Royal Navy in the second British Empire continued to force other nations to end slavery. After 1844 the only problems with the illegal practice of slavery within the British Empire was conducted by Muslims. Since the decline of the British Empire, modern slavery has greatly expanded within the Islamic world. But with little concern from white middle-class liberals, more concerned with 18th century slavery, since George Floyd’s face reminded them of it.

      Liberals today can only fight against slavery by fighting Muslims, but regard that as racist, so pull down statues of people who were forgiven by the Christian abolitionist of the past, who then went on to fight against the slavery which continued outside of the British Empire. Unlike Liberals, Christians forgave those who gave up slavery rather than dwell on the past. That attitude freed Christians to fight against modern slave owners rather than dead men in stone or with a grave stone to smash.

      Liberals fight against slavery in the past, but not in the present day. So unlike Christians, Liberals have never and will never actually free a slave, but have already forgiven the Muslim owner, by looking the other way.

      As someone who was baptised and not a Liberal. I therefore obviously think it would be more practical to smash the BBC than smash the grave of Karl Marx.

      Surely, if you eradicate or air brush out an, ‘important’ aspect of a history, it leaves it wide open to being repeated because there is no historic terms of reference. Perhaps the blacks are touting for a repeat? Just sayin.

      The distortion of history continues. Slavery or serfdom, much the same thing, of the indigenous people was widespread throughout Europe until the eighteenth and nineteenth century . It survived in Russia until the second half of the 19 th century.
      The main reason that black people were transported to tropical plantations was that they could stand the climate better than Euopeans, otherwise I’m sure whites would have been working the plantations. During the 18 and 19th century when some Brits made vast fortunes based on sugar, coffee and tobacco from the tropics using black slaves, ordinary folks in Europe were working from the age of seven in mills , mines or farms making money for the owners. Life for most , black or white , was hard , unforgiving and short.
      Somehow it seems that only black slaves are to be remembered , only the harsh treatment they endured is to be the subject of TV programmes. It is conveniently forgotten that white Europeans suffered as harshly at the hands of their ‘betters’ but their story is being over written by the Woke.
      I do think that many Woke folk think that that all Europeans had an easy life paid for the exclusively by the work of black slaves in the plantations and complete ignorance of history is the root of their white guilt and white privileged nonsense. For stance Prince Harry the Woke, Harry’s ancestors certainly profited greatly from slavery , mine on the other hand almost certainly did not. If he knew any history he would keep his mouth shut.

      I recommend the book, LABOUR AND THE GULAG by Giles Udy. It tells how the minority Labour government (supported by the Liberals) in the years before the second world war turned a blind eye to the existence of Russian slave camps when undertaking trade deals with the Soviets. Hundreds of thousands of men, women and children froze, or starved to death or shot by the communists while cutting and transporting timber in northern Russia for export to the UK. In spite of overwhelming evidence of slavery, Labour ministers supported the Russian communists who they claimed were undertaking “A Great Experiment’. They even tried to redefine the word ‘slavery’ to justify their policy. The prime minister at the time was Ramsay MacDonald. Why are these political parties not condememned now for their association with slavery? Why has Labour’s connection with the slave trade not been mentioned by the BBC in their anti-slavery campaign? Might it be because these slaves were white? Will the BBC support the pulling down of statues of MacDonald?

      The left – part of the problem is the monopoly position the BBC holds . It is very difficult to avoid – and I do my best . As has been said – it would be great to have a contra view to defend the BBC but there really are very few defence lines – such as –

      1 it’s upsetting left and right ( raised as a deflecter by lefties )

      2 it must be okay because of the figures ( caused by the monopoly position )

      3 it has a world wide reputation ( a post empire affection from the ill informed )

      4 people still pay ( because they are scared of a court appearance )

      Fortunately for people who want their BBC destroyed – the strategy of trying to compete with the online broadcasters to ‘get the youngsters ‘ is doomed …..

      tlwei, how else can we not criticise fairly without listening to BBC R4, for example?

      Oh, I suppose we could do it the BBC way as they do with President Trump. We could make up something damaging about the BBC and insist they said it or doctor a recording to make it incriminating or repeat lies about BBC personnel.

      Just like the BBC did this morning: repeating the lie that President said you should inject bleach to cure Covid-19. But we are not like that on here. I’m not going to play the way the Beeb do.

            Surely the key point here is that the licence fee has to be paid in order to see ANY terrestrial television. Including those lovely British films on Talking Pictures and rural America on DMax.

            But since only the BBC gains financially from it then we are right to tune in and provide critique.

          I don’t think the BBC is 100% evil. I’m sure there are lots of good people in it
          It is the top management’s fault that much of the output is unfair
          & they have allowed entryism and fostered this groupthink metroliberal culture that leads to relentless propaganda.
          It is also the governments fault for not getting a grip earlier, the way Ofcom is super biased and rubber stamps the BBC is an issue.

          And it’s not just the BBC and Ofcom this metroliberal group think not only pervades most media, but the education system, NGOs & charities.
          It is real Animal Farm/1984 situation where this overclass rule over us normal people who have to pay taxes and are denied a fair say.

      You don’t need to pay the licence fee to listen to the radio, read the BBC website or listen to ‘Sounds’.

      You don’t need to listen to BBC radio, read their web stuff or listen to ‘Sounds’ but you must know that other people do and they are being exposed to that output and they have a vote that might be influenced by what the BBC feeds them and that ultimately will affect you.

      It is vital that some anti BBC folks do still put their health on the line and watch at least some of its output. Seriously I gave up watching or listening to the BBC four or five years because i was getting so annoyed by the bias , the anti British lies , the lauding of the EU etc that my wife decreed that it wasn’t worth it. So we now confine our selves to old recordings of Antiques Road Trip, Portillo , Gardeners world.We fast forward through the Woke bits which have invaded even these programmes. We never listen to any BBC radio.
      I take my hat off to those who still endure the unendurable so that the rest of us can be kept informed of the what the mad, bad BBC is upto.

        1. It assumes all BAMES think the same way due to their colour
        2. It segregates and doesn’t bring people together
        3. It insults the vast bulk of the customers by inference

    Reading the Daily Mail Letters page today (friday): ‘The National Trust has become just like the BBC – a Left wing liberal organisation with a political agenda – It even had a position on Brexit’ The writer is a long term NT volunteer (the NT relies on such part-time volunteers to run many aspects of the Trust). She is disgusted at how the trust is now run. She points out the trust has lost its way from it founding fathers and is now totally committed to left wing bias: ‘Climate Change’, ‘LGBT rights’, ‘BLM’ and ‘Diversity’ are now the new priorities bordering on ‘obsession’. She states that the National Trust seems determined that the majority will have to change to make way to suit the minority… At the same time (she states) 1,200 staff are now facing redundancy.

    The National Trust (newish) Head is a left wing acolyte, stuffed like the Environmental Agency (that flooded half of Somerset) seems to mirror a common purpose exactly matching that of the BBC. Of course it could just all be a totally coincidental, that such a former conservative (small c) institution has to bow down to the new communal obsession with race, class and sexual preferences.

    The National Trust has gone down hill fast, as these comments testify, it really has gone bad to worse. Take a look at the comments below and weep for the nation.

    Reading the Daily Mail feature article on Rolls Royce. Rolls Royce races to raise £5bn as it fights for survival. Caught my eye as in another article (about the BBC generosity forced to consider if its paying BBC STARS too much such as ‘Zoe Ball’ (I can do without a million pounds). Gary Linekar (I can do with the cash), or Graham Norton (who wonders if he’s worth it).

    The BBC has an annual income of £5b. It produces little in (international) sales and has a total stranglehold on (UK) TV and Radio media. It stifles competition, produces mediocre programs. Repeats over 40% all content and funds the highest salaries in the UK with mind boggling pensions that are beyond the reach of mere mortals.

    I know which to support and which to de-fund. The choice is obvious. De-fund the BBC and save Rolls-Royce. The BBC has the same money each year, Rolls-Royce depends on Sales, the BBC cares only for crises and apocolypse, there is no future for the BBC funding as it does not support British industry and spends more (£5bn) than it can ever earn in a single year..

    An interesting feature in The Telegraph this week on the BBC’s ‘diversity targets’ caught my eye as worth inclusion here as its by someone who found out that she was only employed because of her colour… read on: an article by Ramesha Khan (who has had enough of how the BBC works)!

    My experience of the woke BBC showed why we must defund it! Based on her experience whilst working for the BBC in Manchester and London this year. She had hoped for something different at the BBC…. ‘However,, as a non-white woman of Asian heritage, it quickly became apparent that I was being used to help fill the vapid agenda of the corporations woke, “progressive” ideology’. It can be brutal. When she was asked to appear on BBC Manchester radio, she was told that they had already reached a ‘diversity quota’ that day and felt she was only there to meet a pre-defined cultural background, rather than as a person. She writes; From there, it was a short hop to feeling as if I was expected to have “correct” opinions. The fact that I might not view the world through socially progressive biasses – that as a conservative-leaning person I might support Brexit, for example – seemed not to have occurred to them”… “As a young person with aspirations to become a journalist, my experience at the BBC were incredibly disappointing. Far from being a place where the focus was on delivering hard hitting news and searching analysis, it felt like a place fixated on diversity agendas at the expense of fulfilling its brief”.

    She also observed that the BBC commitment to “diversity” covering such matters is spurious. Stating: “Only facts and opinions that fit the woke agenda are tolerated”….”I was invited into the BBC’s gilded palace of political correctness because of the colour of my skin, not because of my insights. If I had been white, I doubt I would have been parked in front of a microphone”.

    “The Defund the BBC campaign is right – it is time to decriminalise non-payment of the license fee and strip the BBC of its right to tax for watching live TV”…”..the BBC’s twisted version of diversity is not worth the license fee”

      Even against the massive amount of evil propaganda waged against Donald Trump and his Presidency, America may well see the Republicans smiling on their faces in weeks to come. A poor guy down and fighting a nasty virus, is just what the American public feel sad for and will get behind his campaign much to the chagrin of the Democrats and of course the BBC et al.

    Just want to thank an earlier correspondent for the below logic, as it came to the fore again on Toady around 0720.

    JustRemainin Webb was interviewing the head honchos for Gateshead and Liverpool re. the extra local coronavirus measures in their areas.

    He led and goaded them, deliberately and successfully, to state how confusing all the current restrictions are and what a problem this is.

    But surely, since the BBC is a public service broadcaster funded by the licence fee, instead of seditiously highlighting any confusion, it should instead be devoting its energies to explaining the rules, to reduce the confusion!

    The BBC must read this website, because there is now I gather a web page of theirs which for a postcode you type in, the local measures are given.

    Did Remainin mention this ? Did he lead and goad listeners to it ? Not that I heard. Too busy with the confusion agenda.

    Bias as well as useless.

    Maybe the BBC sponsor those insurance adverts on ITV that feature an old Merc?

    Don’t B confused. Be BBC confused.com.

      On Radio 4 at 20:50 on Friday evening, there was “A Point of View” with the BBC’s flavour of the month, Bernardine Evaristo (also recently on “Desert Island Discs” and had her prize-winning novel read in 15-minute installments on R4). I didn’t listen to the broadcast but the summary was that she was arguing that wearing face masks was the least we could do during the Covid19 pandemic.

      What, apart from her obvious racial profile, qualifies her to comment on what is a technical medical issue? I’m not rabidly anti-masks if they can be of some use but what does she know that others don’t?

    How did BIG BROTHER head of the BBC diversity dept and

    Macron wants to stop the Islamists in France running their
    own state in a state , by making it mandatory for Muslim
    kids following school curriculums. France unlike the UK
    has secularism enshrined in its constitution.
    But with 6 million Muslims already in France it is very likely
    that in at the most four generations France will become
    part of the greater Caliphate whatever they do. It’s simple
    is demographic birth rates. It will take five or six generations
    in the UK. But I am sure that the BBC is already preparing
    for their morning programmes to begin with the Fajr prayer.

    TOADY Watch #1 – BBC can’t get a lie in edgeways

    Interesting tactic. JustRemainIn Webb is greatly concerned for the Trump campaign and the US Presidential Election. He said so on air. Hhhmmmmnnn.

    He interviewed Corey Lewandowski, a Republican, and former manager of Donald Trump’s 2016 Presidential campaign in the 8.10 a.m. interview. JustRemainIn wanted to insert a lie about Covid-19 infection into the piece but Lewandowski cut him off and kept talking …
    …. and talking …
    … and talking ……..

    … and talking about ….

    White House Pandemic security procedures. Someone in the White House is seriously organised and has thought through all the risks to the President and others except one. JustRemainIn Webb didn’t spot it because the BBC’s biases are all in limited directions. Are they not, JustRemainIn ?

    Corey Lewandowski’s tactic paid off and it shows one way – there are others – of nailing the BBC TOADY presenters. Our PM and Cabinet Ministers and spokespersons, please take note. Lewandowski could win Olympic Gold for talking, pushing Spike Milligan into the Silver medal spot. And he’s dead.

    Impressive set up for Covid-19 testing at the White House. That place can be as busy as Oxford Street just before Christmas. Does seem like they missed a trick, though, on surface spread contamination.

    TOADY Watch #2 – Blinded By the Cash

    Interesting piece on the non-London Marathon with Mishal Husain demonstrates the weakness of the BBC’s journalistic position. They are all in totally secure jobs, mostly earning mountains of money, courtesy of the Licence Fee taxpayer. Then there are the regular sports segments, three in a normal weekday TOADY and two on a Saturday.

    What all the Beeboids, from the DG down to the Tea Lady, have failed to realise is that under the Pandemic and threat of a nasty virus people, the listeners and viewers in the UK, do not care about sport, the arts and ‘the extras’ in life any more.

    They care about their jobs, their families, their friends and their freedoms and not getting ill. Much of what the BBC does has become unimportant, almost irrelevant to much of the population. It is now mere froth – just like the non-London Marathon.

    The BBC does not see, cannot see, this at all. It is blinded by the cash.

      The Times leads in numbers of copies, but more is spent on The Guardian.
      If the BBC is smaller than it was the last time we had these figures (2017) more people are getting their own copy.
      72,936 copies of The Times now, compared with 70,605 in 2017.

      “The tables below contain the data you have requested, showing the BBC’s total spend on all newspapers delivered through the BBC’s managed service provider to BBC buildings in the 2019 calendar year.

    Will it praise the many clubs who take players from all over the world?
    Will it praise fans in the U.K. who laud black legends such as Pele and Eusebio, and who worship foreign stars today like Heung Min Son and Mo Salah?
    Will it celebrate football as a force for unity, and shared experience?

    It’s yet another ‘black’ something or other.

    When you consider the percentage of blacks in the UK (3%) * (see below, taken from Google today) they are certainly punching well above their weight. A perfect example of the tail wagging the dog.
    Black history month, music awards, films and tv, police officers association and so many other black organisations.

    *United Kingdom Demographics Profile 2019 … 65,105,246 United Kingdom (July 2018 est.) constituent countries by percentage of total population: … white 87.2%, black/African/Caribbean/black British 3%, Asian/Asian British: Indian 2.3%, …

    Also,

    Every report I’ve seen about Donald Trump is full of sneering, hatey words which all have an implied meaning whilst those saying them can pretend they are innocent of any manipulation of the language in the news reports they read out loud.
    Just listen to any sentence used, they think they’re being clever and subtle but the hate shines through.

    On the other hand, every person interviewed doesn’t hang back with their hate and misinformation. Their current favourite is saying Donald said to inject yourself with bleach. Of course he didn’t say that, he hinted on looking into a possible use of disinfectants which kill the virus.
    Do these people understand the difference between, for example, if you’ve been bitten by a poisonous snake you can be treated by injecting snake venom (anti venom derived from snake venom) to save your life but these people would say that’s the same as having the snake bite you again.
    What next, people injecting themselves with lethal poisons? It would never happen (Botox, cough cough)

    I would comment on any positive interviews on Donald Trump but I haven’t seen one yet
