How The Establishment Destroyed Britain’s Free Press

 

When one considers press censorship, it is tempting to take an anachronistic view that Britain is a bastion of press freedom, with newspapers of left and right expressing diverse opinions and flourishing.

The story in mainland Europe is different. In continental German, French, Iaian and Spanish governments don’t have any ethical problems about censoring the press as the British establishment always has, and in most smaller EU nations, the press is owned by political parties. Europe of course, does not have Britain’s long tradition of democracy and freedom of speech, either actual or illusory.

Since the Second World War, there has existed in Germany, France, Austria, Spain, Netherlands, Italy and so on, numerous laws restrict in some way what the press may or may not print particularly when it comes to criticizing government policy, and lately of course, new laws preventing criticizm of Islam have been introduced.

Laws that were originally intended to prevent or restrict the promotion of fascism and holocaust denial are now being expanded to include ever greater spheres of political discourse (i.e. hate speech,) – which, by the way, demonstrates   why even nazis must be allowed to argue their case if they can find a patform. Banning any single idea is always the thin end of the wedge. This is not comparable with Great Britain, where it is still legal in principle to promote fascism or deny the holocaust in national newspapers.

Where legislation is absent, however, as in Britain, “soft censorship” is strongly present. Through various laws which govern, ostensibly, how we must act towards one another in society, the government has effectively controlled what we may say to one another. This was achieved through “Race Relations” laws which were drafted and passed by Britain’s Jewish community.

Jewish Home Secretary Jack Straw passed the Malicious Communications Act last decade which pertained to the internet in theory, but in practice governments what media outlets may say also – they are, after all, communications. Without referring to the media by name, British governments have managed to institute censorship by the back door. Ironically straw would be unlikely to be considered for high office now, his party, Labour, desperste to pick up the Muslim vote, has become the Jew hating party.

Britain’s notorious “right-wing press” has until recently avoided the establishment’s attempts to control it – until very recently. Politicians have long bemoaned the influence of ‘far right’ daily newspapers such as the Daily Mail and the Daily Express, for both of these papers have been outspoken against mass-immigration and multiculturalism in recent decades. They also led the successful campaign for an EU referendum and Britain’s subsequent vote to leave. Even politicians over in Brussels have derided these two newspapers for their persistence in printing a critical view of what goes on in the the EU’s behind-closed-doors policy making sessions.

These two papers have now fallen under establishment control and are edited by people sympathetic to the globalist, cultural marxist, anti – democratic world view of Britain’s major political parties, the EU, the United Nations, and the banking cartel. This can be clearly seen in their recent about-turns in political alignment.

Earlier this month, the the long serving editor of the Daily Mail, Paul Dacre,  was replaced as Editor-in-Chief by former Guardianista George Greig. Greig is a known for his ultra left positions and has immediately shifted the Mail’s stances on key issues, including just this week denouncing opponents of Theresa May’s disgusting Brexit sellout as “saboteurs”. (Sabotaging the establishment’s plan to integrate our nation into a European federal superstate?) The Mail has also, almost immediately scrubbed any discussion of immigration from their pages. Greig’s appointment is widely believed to have been orchestrated by the British establishment to censor the Mail by proxy.

Earlier this year the Daily Express’ owner, soft porn baron Richard Desmond announced that the paper was to be sold. The purchaser was Trinity Mirror, the publisher of the Daily Mirror and Sunday Mirror. The Mirror papers are Britain’s most widely read left-wing newspapers although to call them left wing is understatement, they are Maoist.

Their political allegiance lies firmly with the Labour Party, not respectable old Labour, the party of the working class, but Jeremy Corbyn’s Islamophiliac loony left that thinks importing ten million illiterate, uneducated Muslim peasants to britain will somehow culturally enrich us. Interestingly, the long-term Editor-in-Chief of the Express, Hugh Whittow, was ‘retired’ almost immediately after the acquisition and replaced with former Daily Mirror Editor Gary Jones. Needless to say, the Express has now conveniently dropped its reporting of issues pertaining to immigration and is soft peddaling on its support for Brexit.

Not long ago these takeovers would have been referred to the monopolies commission and the Trinity Mirror aquisition of the Express almost certainly rejected. There now remains not a single daily newspaper critical of mass-immigration, nor any realistically Eurosceptic ones, although news websites such as Breitbart or The Anti Media are going from strength to strength.

Anybody who believes there hasn’t been some collusion involved in the acquisitions and appointments that have occurred at both of the right of centre papers in the same year is clearly not paying attention. Without having to pass a single law to this effect, the British government has succeeded in neutering the only newspapers which had remotely stood up for the interests of the Silent Majority.

Now it’s down to us citizen journalists.

UK one of worst nations in Western Europe for press freedom – Reporters Without Borders

From being a leading nation for press freedom and liberal values, the UK is now one of the worst countries in western Europe with new media-muzzling laws, such as the pernicious ‘hate speech’ laws and a climate of hostility towards truthful reporting and investigative journalism, the latest issue of the Reporters Without Borders world press freedom index reveals.

The UK now only ranks 40 out of 180 in the 2018 World Press Freedom Index, an annual report compiled by highly respected non-profit organisation Reporters Without Borders (RSF). It dropped to that position in the past year. RSF commented that “The position marks a “staggering” decline for the UK of 18 places since the index began in 2002.”

As well as western European nations such as Germany, Ireland and France, countries not noted for their tradition of free press, including South Africa, Jamaica, Namibia and Slovakia also outperformed Britain. Scandinavian countries had the best climates for the free exchange of information, with Norway, Sweden and Finland ranking best in the index. North Korea held the lowest ranking, below Eritrea Turkmenistan, Syria, China and Vietnam.

Recent developments in the UK including what it called an “alarming” proposal by the Law Commission to replace the Official Secrets Act with an updated Espionage Act, have curtailed the ability of the press to hold powerful people and institutions to account.” .

The move “could make it easy to jail journalists as ‘spies’ for obtaining leaked information and see them jailed for up to 14 years”, the report concluded.

RFS also criticised the Government over the introduction of the Investigatory Powers Act, saying the new law contained insufficient protections for whistleblowers, journalists and their sources.

Freedom of the press came under further threat when Home Secretary Amber Rudd proposed restrictions to encryption on messaging services such as WhatsApp and announced plans to criminalise the repeated viewing of extremist content, the organisation said.’

German politician calls on facebook to abolish free speech
A German politician has given the clearest indication yet that the political elites of the free world are ideologically much closer to Adolf Hitler’s National Socialists than the social liberalism they claim to support. Free speech is the basis of all liberal democracy. Heiko Maas, the German justice minister has has written to the Facebook it removes “xenophobic and racist” anti-migrant posts from its website and apps., has written to the company to demand an urgent review of its policy over hate messages.

Free Speech Is Being Murdered By The Media And Left Wing Authoritarianism
Without free speech there is no democracy. Without democracy there is no freedom. But all over the developed world free speech is under attack from politically correct politics. It is time to start resisting, do not believe the propaganda published by mainstream media, question everything and make up your own mind. as The Buddha said, “Believe nothing you read or are told unless it agrees with your own experience and common sense.”

Obama administration ‘blocking’ information from the press
Uncovering information that should be available to the public has become increasingly difficult under the presidency of Barack Obama, an Associated Press bureau chief says. In some cases, it surpasses the secrecy of the George W. Bush administration. The White House’s penchant for secrecy does not just apply to the federal government, according to AP’s Washington bureau chief, Sally Buzbee.

Western Hypocrisy In Reporting News about Ukraine And Russia
The opening paragraph of a CNN report on the latest developments in the crisis in Ukraine illusrate perfectly the hypocrisy of Western media in the way they cast Russia as the danger to world peace and America as bringer of freedom and democracy. In fact in the crisis over the US attempt to draw Ukraine into NATO the positions taken by the USA abd Russias are the opposite of the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis.

In a move that puts them among the contenders for lying, self serving shits of the decade, but still in a league of their own un terms of complete and utter shittiness, it has emerged that the scum sucking scab lice of Rotherham Council’s controlling Labour group and the public servants they employed had deleted files in order to cover up their complicity in the blatant and systematic child abuse perpetrated under the noses of council officials.

Centralized power – the worst of all possible worlds
The centralization of power over the past few decades in nations of the developed world has led to the evolution of a sociopathic managerial class formed mainly from the old petite bourgoisie who have now gravitted to public sector careers where their delusions of social status and the unaccountability of office lead them to abuse such power as they have.

How academic debate is suppressed on science topics like Climate Change, GMOs, Pesticides and Toxicity of medicines
Intellectual intolerance and the supposed superiority of the scientific education have led not just to the politiciisation of science but to it’s being seduced by corporate money and political power. Science was ever fascism’s whore of course and the egos of scientists are easily bought. This has led to a very unhealthy emergence of dogmas and orthodoxies and an intolerance of the dissent that is essential if scientific research is to have any credibility.

Phobophobia – Fear Of Being called Phobic?
Homophobia is not fear of homosexuals but fear of thec same thing which does not make sense. Just as politically correct thinking uses the word bigot nonsensically so it’s accusations of phobia are irrational – as irrational as the groundless fear familiar to those who suffer the recognized medical conditions called phobias.
