Far-Left Group Successfully ‘Bullies’ Newspapers Over Migrant, Transgender Stories

A group of left-wing extremists who have been active campaigners against democracy and free speech are attempting to use legal trickery to limit what newspapers report about immigration, Islam, and transgenderism. They have also been found to have successfully “bullied” business into withdrawing ads from publications that defy their diktat and published honest reports on the efforts of the GBLT lobby to take sexual propaganda into schools or promote ‘gender fluidity’ as something supported by science and something entirely natural to humans and animals.

The Stop Funding Hate (SFH) campaign accuses the popular newspapers The Sun, Express, and Daily Mail of “using hate to sell newspapers,” influencing the gullible masses, and links their reports to an alleged rise in “hate crime.” In fact as any impartial observer will have noted, it is the ‘left’ that bases its political agenda on hate, launching vitriolic cks on people who express non – approved opinions and issuing death threats agains the families of people who openly oppose them.

Ironically the recent rise in what left wing extremists risibly refer to as hate crime includes attacks of Jews and their businesses and property by Muslims, and gang wars between members of street gangs made up exclusively of migrant ethnic groups.

“History has shown us time and again the dangers of demonising foreigners and minorities,” SFH add, seemingly implying news coverage could lead to fascism and genocide. In fact, history shows us that fascism and ethic cleansing most frequently happen in tyrannies where there is no free press, yet that is exactly the situation “Stop Funding Hate” are trying to engineer.

The woman managed to break free and locate a train attendant. At first, the woman did not want to call the police. “She felt sorry for him [the rapist] … and was afraid he would be deported back to Iraq.”

Fake News Alert: Trump Links To Russia Were Just Attempts By Friends Of hillary Clinton To Discredit Him: Congressional Committee

Obama Trumped As He Tries To Persuade Germans He’s Still President
As the political system in Britain seems to be falling apart ahead of the election, the mess in America seems to get worse and worse because delusional Democrats just can’t accept that they lost the election last November

Just as was predicted, based on the fact that accusations came from  high-ranking people in the US Democratic Party, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes confirmed on Sunday that  no evidence of collusion between President Trump’s campaign and Russia has been forthcoming from members of the Democrat National Committee (DNC) or members of Hillary Clinton’s campaign team. Likewise, mainstream media organisations such as CNN, the New York Times and The Washington Post have offered nothing to back up reports of links between the Trump campaign and The Kremlin.

Maverick journalist Glenn Greenwald, who left a lucrative career with liberal media publications to form The Intercept and do the job political journalists should to by calling the powerful to account sums up the farce well, given the way these Russia conspiracies have drowned out other critical issues being virtually ignored under the Trump presidency, it’s vital that everything be done now to make clear what is based in evidence and what is based in partisan delusions. And most of what the Democratic base has been fed for the last six months by their unhinged stable of media, online, and party leaders has decisively fallen some way short of the truth or even a distant relative of the truth. Greenwald writes:

From MSNBC politics shows to town hall meetings across the country, the overarching issue for the Democratic Party’s base since Trump’s victory has been Russia, often suffocating attention for other issues. This fixation has persisted even though it has no chance to sink the Trump presidency unless it is proven that high levels of the Trump campaign actively colluded with the Kremlin to manipulate the outcome of the U.S. election — a claim for which absolutely no evidence has thus far been presented.

The principal problem for Democrats is that so many media figures and online charlatans are personally benefiting from feeding the base increasingly unhinged, fact-free conspiracies — just as right-wing media polemicists did after both Bill Clinton and Obama were elected — that there are now millions of partisan soldiers absolutely convinced of a Trump/Russia conspiracy for which, at least as of now, there is no evidence. And they are all waiting for the day, which they regard as inevitable and imminent, when this theory will be proven and Trump will be removed.

Donald Trump’s presidency is proving quite odd in many ways and a lot of this is due to Trump’s eccentric style of doing politics. But a break from the old ‘playground squabble’ standard of debate in which personalities dominated because both sides offered almost identical policies (defined for them by vested interests,) is what Americans voted for and if The Democrats want to effectively oppose Trump, rather than whining because he once said ‘pussy’ or screaming that he should be impeached because he is a Russian agent, they have to remove the Washington establishment old guard, The Clintons, Obama, Pelosi, Warren etc. and bring in some people who are able to understand the concerns of the majority of working Americans and drop the politically correct bullshit.

Refugee Crisis: The Stories Mainstream Media will not broadcast

A few days ago on one of my other blogs I featured a video made by a young Syrian girl who told some very uncomfortable truths about what is really happening in Syria.

As a follow up to that, today we have a compilation of clips showing how mainstream media (especially the British government’s Ministry Of Truth aka The BBC) are editing the news to advance the globalist agenda and guilt trip us poor taxpayers into accepting the globalist narrative that we must surrender our nations and cultures to foreign shits because their skin tends to be darker than that of north Europeans.

Here’s a glimpse of the truth about what kind of people our leaders and their brainwashed, dumbed down supporters want to flood Europe with.

Teacher suspended for teaching class historical truth.

This is a story from Boggart Blog’s you Couldn’t Make It Up desk:

Despite support by parents and students – both black and white – a Michigan middle school teacher has been placed on “administrative leave” for teaching that in the 1800s and early 1900s some white entertainers performed in blackface.

Al Jolson blackface
Al Jolson never existed according to the politically correct education system. And don’t even mention The Black and White Minstrel Show

from Breitbart.com

History teacher Alan Barron of Monroe Middle School, Monroe, Michigan, was forced out of his classroom only weeks before he was set to retire after a 36-year teaching career. The suspension came after an administrator sitting in on the class objected to a video of blackface performers from the turn of the last century.

No black student, no white student, nor any parents ever complained about the topic, but Barron, who is also a Monroe Township Supervisor, was taken out of the classroom pending an investigation by the district.

In fact, not only did one black student find nothing offensive about the topic, but she and her parents came to the support of the teacher saying that he was only relaying factual history.

Adrienne Aaron, whose daughter is in Barron’s class, said the girl, “was more offended that they stopped the video. It had nothing to do with [modern] racism. History is history. We need to educate our kids to see how far we’ve come in America. How is that racism?”

Russia Today journalist Quits Over Whitewashing Of Putin

Russia Today
Picture source: The Guardian

Former (as of last night)Russia Today correspondent in Washington DC, Liz Wahl’s publicly announced (while live on air reportedly) that she “cannot be part of a network funded by the Russian government that whitewashes the actions of Putin…” (see video clip below) Well she is probably correct on that, it would be quite unreasonable to believe a news organisation funded by the government of Russia would reports in an unbiased and objective way the festering underbelly of Russian politics.

Another US national working for Russia today, Abby Martin, also spoke out on air against the Kermlin action because she felt the intervention in Ukraine was morally wrong.

Ms Martin said: “I can’t stress enough how strongly I am against any state intervention in a sovereign nation’s affairs. Just because I work here doesn’t mean I don’t have editorial independence,” she said, adding: “What Russia did was wrong.””

RT said it respected Ms Martin’s views, and that she would not be reprimanded.

If only we had some journalists and broadcasters or newspapers, rdio and television news organisations in Britain that took the job so seriously people would resign rather than pump out government friendly propganda.

Can you imagine what would happen if some journo said, OK President Obama aka Barry Soeroro, if as you say you are eligible to serve as Presodent how come you will not show your long form birth certificate / reveal school and college records / explain why your social security number really belongs to a dead guy? There would be a witch hunt.

Or what if a BBC news reporter said, “Well OK, this UKIP member told a rather tasteless joke in a private conversation. I don’t really think that makes everybody in the party a racist.

Or what if some columnist for The Guardian or The Indy wrote, “Actually I think same sex marriage is a stupid idea”.

Yeah.

At least RT was correct when it said yesterday that “Contrary to the popular opinion, RT doesn’t beat its journalists into submission, and they are free to express their own opinions, not just in private but on the air.” One wonders if Ms. Wahl’s next stop will be MSNBC, FOX, CNN, or any other US mainstream media organisation where the truly objective and unbiased coverage is as common as rocking horse shit.

And now back to mainstream media’s unbiased and objective coverage of the Ukraine crisis, which after previously deomonising Putin and Russia for being behind the violence in Kiev was forced when presented with incontrovertible evidence to admit that it may well have been Kiev’s current post-coup and US-supported acting governmenta bunch of neo Nazi thugs according to westerners on the ground in Ukraine, that ordered the murder of its own civilians in an apparent attempt to escalate conflict and provoke the Russians into doing something that would force western intervention. Ummmm – haven’t we been here before? For Kiev read Damasus.

Area 51: Another Goal For The Conspiracy Theorists

Helllllooooooo all you truth deniers out there.

Remember how you used to rubbish everything us truth seekers told you.

“Oh no, the government would never lie to us,” you said, “oh no, scientists would never participate in a conspiracy of silence with politicians and big business,” you told us.

You were so sure nothing nasty or underhand was going on, no public servants or tax eaters were keeping the truth from us, you must be feeling pretty disconsolate after the last few months.

And now, on top of everything else you have to cope with the fact that Area 51 was always real, as has been admitted by the American government.

This from The Independent:

“Officially it has never existed. Until now.

The CIA has for the first time acknowledged the existence of Area 51 – the enigmatic US airbase that is shrouded in mystery and is a staple of alien conspiracy theories.

The mysterious piece of land in Nevada has been linked with reports of UFOs, alien bodies and secret government projects.

A declassified CIA history of the U-2 spy plane programme, made public this week, makes numerous references to the air base.

The documents came to light during research by the National Security Archive (NSA) at George Washington University for a report into the development, history and operation of U-2 spy planes during the Cold War.

Included among the documentation is also a map of the secret base. Included among the documentation is also a map of the secret base.

As part of their research the archive obtained documents that for the first time actually make reference to Area 51. Included among the documentation, obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request made in 2005, is also a map showing the position of the secret base.”

Well we told you so, the truth is out there, just not as far out there as the UFO nuts hoped.

Seventeen Techniques For Truth Suppression

As used by Our New Unhappy Lords

See how many you can spot in any newspaper or television news bulletin on any day:

Seventeen Techniques for Truth Suppression
Originally Thirteen Techniques for Truth Suppression

by David Martin

Strong, credible allegations of high-level criminal activity can bring down a government. When the government lacks an effective, fact-based defense, other techniques must be employed. The success of these techniques depends heavily upon a cooperative, compliant press and a mere token opposition party.

Dummy up. If it’s not reported, if it’s not news, it didn’t happen.

Wax indignant. This is also known as the “how dare you?” gambit.

Characterize the charges as “rumours” or, better yet, “wild rumours.” If, in spite of the news blackout, the public is still able to learn about the suspicious facts, it can only be through “rumours.” (If they tend to believe the “rumours” it must be because they are simply “paranoid” or “hysterical.”)

Knock down straw men. Deal only with the weakest aspect of the weakest charges. Even better, create your own straw men. Make up wild rumours and give them lead play when you appear to debunk all the charges, real and fanciful alike.

Call the sceptics names like “conspiracy theorist,” “nut,” “ranter,” “kook,” “crackpot,” and of course, “rumour monger.” Be sure, too, to use heavily loaded verbs and adjectives when characterizing their charges and defending the “more reasonable” government and its defenders. You must then carefully avoid fair and open debate with any of the people you have thus maligned. For insurance, set up your own “sceptics” to shoot down.

Impugn motives. Attempt to marginalize the critics by suggesting strongly that they are not really interested in the truth but are simply pursuing a partisan political agenda or are out to make money (compared to over-compensated adherents to the government line who, presumably, are not).

Invoke authority. Here the controlled press and the sham opposition can be very useful.

Dismiss the charges as “old news.”

Come half-clean. This is also known as “confession and avoidance” or “taking the limited hangout route.” This way, you create the impression of candour and honesty while you admit only to relatively harmless, less-than-criminal “mistakes.” This stratagem often requires the embrace of a fall-back position quite different from the one originally taken. With effective damage control, the fall-back position need only be peddled by stooge skeptics to carefully limited markets.

Characterize the crimes as impossibly complex and the truth as ultimately unknowable.

Reason backward, using the deductive method with a vengeance. With thoroughly rigorous deduction, troublesome evidence is irrelevant. For example: We have a completely free press. If they know of evidence that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (BATF) had prior knowledge of the Oklahoma City bombing they would have reported it. They haven’t reported it, so there was no prior knowledge by the BATF. Another variation on this theme involves the likelihood of a conspiracy leaker and a press that would report the leak.

Require the sceptics to solve the crime completely. For example: If Vince Foster was murdered, who did it and why?

Change the subject. This technique includes creating and/or publicizing distractions.

Scantly report incriminating facts, and then make nothing of them. This is sometimes referred to as “bump and run” reporting.

Baldly and brazenly lie. A favourite way of doing this is to attribute the “facts” furnished the public to a plausible-sounding, but anonymous, source.

Expanding further on numbers 4 and 5, have your own stooges “expose” scandals and champion popular causes. Their job is to pre-empt real opponents and to play 99-yard football. A variation is to pay rich people for the job who will pretend to spend their own money.

Flood the Internet with agents. This is the answer to the question, “What could possibly motivate a person to spend hour upon hour on Internet news groups defending the government and/or the press and harassing genuine critics?” Don’t the authorities have defenders enough in all the newspapers, magazines, radio, and television? One would think refusing to print critical letters and screening out serious callers or dumping them from radio talk shows would be control enough, but, obviously, it is not.
