The BBC’s wokeness is killing good TV

from Comment Central

by Ben Smith

The BBC is in crisis. Putting aside the current lull in TV production due to COVID-19 there is a lot going wrong with the state funded broadcaster, argues Ben Smith.

In addition to the network’s declining reputation regarding its questionable and biased news reporting, the BBC is feverishly pursuing an increasingly woke culture in regards to its TV shows and the casting thereof. Talent agencies and actors in the UK are faced with the worrying trend of forced diversity that doesn’t just go after new shows but also criticised existing shows like Luther. Apparently Idris Elba isn’t authentically black enough. Who knew?


Like any other network the BBC wants, and indeed needs, fresh original content. However, it appears that besides the always well received period pieces, the BBC is focusing on content that ‘matters’. What does that mean? Well, you guessed it; it means shows that are about minorities, social issues, race, class, gender etc. A good story? Irrelevant, as long as it’s about a hot topic that ‘progressive’ and woke people will praise for raising awareness and criticizing the status quo. This drive for woke content feeds into the well documented phenomenon of ‘go woke, go broke’ which we’ve seen in Hollywood, when movies and TV shows’ sole purpose is to carry a political message and dissect current issues. … Continue reading >>>

Signs Of The Times

Today we turn to that venerable newspaper The Times to highlight the latest gobsmackingly stupid idiocy of the ‘woke’ brigade and te wankers (both elected and unelected) in government who prop up the moronic virtue signalling excesses of the politically correct left:

OK, you get the picture, woke fascism is on the march and the only way to make yourself acceptable is through total obedience to their diktat. Don’t hug your loved ones, wear the mask, be happy to get your shot of the killer vaccine, turn off your heating in midwinter, go vegan, hate the country and culture that nurtured you, accept the fat ugly lezza is really a man because she ‘feels’ she’s a man and accept the chick-with-a-dick as a woman in spite of his big hairy bollocks because he ‘identifies as a woman.

Call anyone who questions CO2 driven Anthropogenic Climate Change a “science denier” but deny science that had stood up to all scrutiny for hundreds of years.

The Only Way To Convince The Woke Fascist You Are Sane Is To Be Just As Stark Raving Bonkers As They Are

‘Historical Wokery’: British War Hero’s Statue Set to be Removed by BLM Inspired Council

another old statue offends BLM wankers
Sir Redvers Buller – he offended Black Lives Matter (Picture: Derek Harper, Geograph via Breitbart Europe )

A city council in the UK is set to remove the statue of a British war hero after a Black Lives Matter inspired review determined that he represent colonialism and does not represent women and so-called ‘gender non-binary’ people.

Following nationwide Black Lives Matter protests over the summer, the Exeter City Council established an ‘equality impact assessment’ to determine whether the statue honouring famed British general, Sir Redvers Buller should be removed. The review found that General Buller’s statue would negatively impact anyone who “does not define themselves in binary gender terms,” according to the Daily Mail.

“The General Buller statue represents the patriarchal structures of empire and colonialism which impact negatively on women and anyone who does not define themselves in binary gender terms,” the review stated. “The consultation will need to ensure that the views of women, transgender and non-binary people are captured and given due weight,” it continued.

The review claimed that the statue was specifically targeted because of the inscription on the plinth upon which it stands that states Buller “sought to advance British imperialist interests in other countries”…

Julie Burchill’s Woke Publisher Pays Her Advance In Full After Cancelling Her un-PC Book

from Guido Fawkes order order blog

Julie Burchill’s publisher has agreed to pay her in full and relinquished all rights to her manuscript, following an intervention by the Free Speech Union. Last week, Little, Brown announced it would not be publishing Burchill’s book, Welcome to the Woke Trials, after she got into a Twitter spat with literal communist Ash Sarkar. The hard left pundit had attacked Rod Liddle for making light of child rape, having dug up an eight-year-old Spectator article in which he said he had avoided becoming a teacher because he couldn’t trust himself not to try and have sex with his teenage pupils. Burchill told her that was a little rich coming from a Muslim, given that Mohammad’s wife Aisha was a child when he married her. “I don’t WORSHIP a paedophile,” she said. “Lecturer, lecture thyself!” Little, Brown promptly cancelled the book.

As Brendan O’Neill commented: “Julie Burchill was hired for being Julie Burchill – and then Julie Burchill was fired for being Julie Burchill.” Guido doesn’t like to criticise other people’s faiths, however it should not be an offence to be blasphemous…

Luckily for her, Burchill is a member of the Free Speech Union and reached out for help. Following an intervention by the FSU’s legal team, Little, Brown has now agreed to pay Julie’s advance in full and returned all the rights in the book to her so she can take it elsewhere. According to her agent Matthew Hamilton, several publishers have contacted him expressing an interest in the book.

Toby Young, FSU General Secretary, says: “For a publisher to cancel a book on cancel culture because a self-proclaimed communist has denounced the author is completely unacceptable. This is Great Britain, not Stalin’s Russia. I’m glad we were able to help.” Julie is unrepentant. “I’ve been upsetting bourgeoise bed-wetters since I was 17 – now I’m 61 and nothing has changed. Last time I checked, that wasn’t against the law. I am indebted to the Free Speech Union for stepping in to protect my rights.” They would have got away with if it weren’t for that pesky Free Speech Union

Liz Truss has made the intellectual case for Conservative Values

Yesterday we reported on a speech made by Transport Secretary Liz Truss in which she attacked the ‘woke’ agenda of far left policies on race and multicuklturalism, climate and environment, immigration and minorities, free speech and gender issues and said the government must defend ‘conservative values.’ Speaking to The centre For Policy Studies, Truss gave the impression that she was laying down a challenge to Boris Johnson’s weak leadership and conversion from his libertarian instincts to politically correct positions on most controversial issues.

Many people suggest this move to leftist authoritarian positions is due to the influence of the Prime Minister’s laughably ‘woke girlfriend Carrie (Miss Piggy) Symonds but this blog, because we like to float outrageous conspiracy theories sometimes, has speculated that boris was somehow given a brain transplant while in a medically induced coma while allegeldly suffering from COVID-19 early this year.

Today CapX has this on Ms. Truss’ speech which shows that we are not the only ones who interpreted its populism as the first move in a bid to sooner or later succeed Boris in Downing Street:

Freedom and Equality are Fundamentally Conservative Values – Liz Truss

  • Freedom and equality are fundamentally Conservative values
  • Liz Truss has made an intellectual case for Conservative feminism – even if she won’t use the word
  • The Government must implement policies that will make a real difference to women’s lives. Deeds not words

Liz Truss has parked a big – and definitely not pink – tank on Labour’s lawn. In a barnstorming speech at the Centre for Policy Studies yesterday, the Equalities Minister said she would “reject the approach taken by the left, captured as they are by identity politics, loud lobby groups and the idea of ‘lived experience’”, and set out a new philosophy based on “the core principles of freedom, choice, opportunity, and individual humanity and dignity”.

It was noticeable, however, that in a lengthy speech on equality she only used the word ‘feminism’ once – and that was to repudiate “pink bus” feminism, “where women are left to fix sexism and campaign for childcare”. For Conservatives like me, who also consider themselves feminists, it was frustrating. Because this was a powerfully feminist speech, which fundamentally rejected the idea that being a woman should be an impediment to success.

It has never made sense to me that a party steeped in ideas of freedom and empowerment is not naturally seen as the party of feminism. Conservatives like Truss shouldn’t be so squeamish about using the word. Perhaps her reticence reflects the fact that the debate about women’s equality has been a leftwing bastion for so long. … Continue reading >>>

Ex-Equality Tsar Trevor Phillips Criticises ‘Woke Ultras’ Trying to Erase British History


Victoria Friedman19 Sep 2020

Britain’s former equalities chief Trevor Phillips has criticised the “woke ultras” who want to destroy symbols of British history, such as statues and names of buildings, warning that a society that damns its past “promises dark days ahead”.

The former chairman of the Equality and Human Rights Commission has claimed that the progressive movement “has been captured by ultras”, and “woke revolutionists’” lust for destroying symbols of the past that are remotely considered to be connected to slavery or racism portend the “crushing of dissent in the future”.

“History matters. Every revolution starts with the destruction of the symbols of the past and often the elimination of those who resist abolishing them,” Mr Phillips wrote for The Times on Friday. He gave examples of the French Revolution and Cambodia’s Pol Pot era where history was abolished and time was reset to “Year One” and “Year Zero”, respectively.

Mr Phillips also poured scorn on those “woke anti-imperialists” and their “street theatre”, who despite acting as if they speak for ethnic minorities in Briton and former colonies, likely had their closest encounter with Empire being “an especially hot vindaloo”.

The veteran anti-racism campaigner and son of Caribbean immigrants explained that “Those, like me, whose lives were directly shaped by the legacy of colonialism are far less exercised about the symbols of the past than those who were not.” … Continue reading>>>

Scottish University Will Rename David Hume Tower After George Floyd

ByRichard Moorhead in Big League Politics

The University of Edinburgh in Scotland announced that it would rename a university building after George Floyd on Thursday. The Hume Tower was previously named after Scottish Enlightenment philosopher David Hume, who is thought of as a notable classical liberal political philosopher.

The Hume Tower will now be known as 40 George Floyd. The prestigious university, located in Scotland’s capital city, explained in a statement that the renaming was taking place because “of the sensitivities around asking students to use a building named after the 18th century philosopher whose comments on matters of race, though not uncommon at the time, rightly cause distress today.

The University of Edinburgh claims that the strange renaming is only temporary, but give no timeframe as to when the tower will be reverted to its original name, or changed back at all. They’re probably setting up some clueless, feckless university administrator to back down in the face of militant liberal activists who demand that the Floyd name be honored in perpetuity … Continue reading >>>

Full stops are ‘intimidating’ Gen Zers and are being ‘revised’, linguists say…

For a long time I believed that to be accepted by the ‘liberal’ left, that mix of authoritarian socialists, quasi – religious atheists and racist progressives these days one had to be either insane or retarded. However, the past few months have taught me that to be accepted into the cohorts of the ‘woke’  it is necessary to be both insane AND retarded.

One of the ideas straight out of George Orwell’s dystopian novel “1984” that proves my point is the “woke” culture’s embracing of an idea created by the Big Brother rergime that the novelist calls Newspeak. This is a policy of limiting language in a way which makes the expression of dissent from Big Brother’s dictum impossible. Words that can be used to describe ideas or criticism of the regime are banned and non conformity is enforced by The Thought Police whose technology which, though described in ways that seem clunky to us (1984 was written in the years immediately after World War 2,) accurately predict the technological surveillance now operated by governments in collaboration with Silicon Valley tech giants through internet technologies.

And we have observed how the “woke” generation and their cancel culture have been proscribing certain words and banning certain topics in order to suppress discussion and critisism of their ideas. No surprise then that the latest nonsense to emerge from that festering sewer of ‘progressive’ idea, the university system is an attack on spelling and grammar, which if suggessful would rob language of nuance and subtlety and render everything we read as wooden and devoid of expression as the text of a Bill Gates speech.

A full stop, or period as America has it, ending a sentence, is a sign of ‘aggression’ to the hyper-sensitive generation raised with cell phone in hand, according to linguists working in the university system’s linguistics community who would presumably prefer we communicate icons and emojis.

Ending a message with a stop has come to “signify an abrupt or angry tone of voice” to Generation Z, some linguists claim, arguing that in the era of ubiquitous texting and instant messaging, full stops are no longer necessary to merely indicate the end of a sentence. Which is utter bollocks of course because text messages are an abbreviated form that does not use properly constructed sentences.

An idea’s conclusion is implied by the end of the message, they insist (because nobody communicates in more than one sentence at a time anymore, apparently – you just hit ‘send’ and start a new message). When full stops are used, they’re supposedly interpreted as “ominous” or emotionally charged by the hyper-sensitive young people reading the message.

Well that’s fine for the illeterate fuckwits spewed out by modern universities, but some of us still like to READ long texts. Novels, biographies, books on history, travel, science and philosophy. Try writing that sort of thing when you have to replace grammar and punctuation with signifiers of emotions and see how far you get.

The full stop’s use is being “revised in a really fundamental way,” Professor David Crystal, billed by the UK Telegraph as “one of the world’s leading language experts,”alleges. It’s no longer about ending a sentence but about an “emotion marker,” he says. This is even “backed up by science” – a 2015 Binghamton University study found college students perceive text messages ending in a full stop as being “less sincere” than those without one.

Well we all knew modern students are infantile idiots but I suppose information like that strengthens the case.

It is easy to attribute this supposed aversion to definitive sentence endings to the wilting mindset of Generation Snowflake, university educated young adults who demand both literal and metaphorical safe spaces where they can be sure they will never encounter anything that might offend their delicate sensibilities, although how they will cope with the rude brutality of the real world when they eventually emerge into it is going to be amusing to observe, but the elevation of generational sensitivities over linguistic coherence is part of a more ominous trend.

The far left wankers woke academics running the English Department at Rutgers University, USA are staging a full frontal assault on grammar, having somehow managaged to convince themselves that the linguistic rules which are essential if we are to make sense of each other’s speech are somehow a kind of colonialism.

There’s a campaign in Seattle (where the idea of winding up the police force because law and order is racist has recently been popular,) to ditch the notion of “teaching” altogether, led by an ethnic studies educator who argues her colleagues have no business teaching little Johnny that 2+2=4 because arithmetic has been used to “marginalize people of color.”

The University of Washington issued a statement back in 2017 cautioning professors against expecting perfect spelling from their students, declaring“there is no inherent ‘standard’ of English.” Maybe at the coming elections the good people of washington State and it’s largest city, Seattle, could vote to defund the university.

We’re still a few years out from Orwell’s Newspeak, which used an ever-dwindling vocabulary to control thought (although with dictionaries hastily redefining words from ‘racism’ to ‘woman’, it may be closer than we think), but the incoherent Babel that would result if every social group – racial, ethnic, age, gender, and so on – had its own rules of speaking and writing what is supposedly the same language is a very real threat. There are few quicker ways to atomize a population than preventing them from communicating, and with literacy rates declining across the UK and US alike, a future where the tightly-controlled emoji library becomes the lingua franca isn’t unrealistic.

Come to think of it, the idea is not unlike the Indo – European proto language that neolithic clan members in the fertile cresent fom the Indus Valley to the Balkans used to communicate around 8000 years ago. Yes, that’s real progress, led by the reality denying idiots who teach in out universities.

US TV News Veteran Quits, Admits “Media Are a Cancer and There is No Cure”

Summit News

Picture: Getty Images

MSNBC tv producer Ariana Pekary explained that the reason for her deciding to quit her job was that the mainstream media blocks “diversity of thought” in favor of promoting hysterical voices for ratings and that a TV veteran admitted to her “we are a cancer and there is no cure.”

Pekary, who was an “integral member” of Lawrence O’Donnell’s primetime show, says that the media’s obsession with Trump is actually costing lives because it is preventing reasoned discussions about how to fight the coronavirus pandemic.

“This cancer risks human lives, even in the middle of a pandemic. The primary focus quickly became what Donald Trump was doing (poorly) to address the crisis, rather than the science itself. As new details have become available about antibodies, a vaccine, or how COVID actually spreads, producers still want to focus on the politics. Important facts or studies get buried,” Pekary explained.

The former producer also revealed that a “successful and insightful TV veteran” acknowledged to her that, “We are a cancer and there is no cure,” adding, “But if you could find a cure, it would change the world.”

Pekary also highlighted how the very model by which the corporate press is structured guarantees that voices of dissent are silenced and objective analysis censored in favor of hysterical political extremists, something that has come to fore over the last two months with the media’s relentless promotion of Black Lives Matter narratives.

The ‘woke’ have won – it’s too late for our unis if academics need to hide their views

‘Problematic’ university professors are too afraid to share their views – how about we cancel overly-sensitive students instead?

Opinions. They’re tricky things. “Problematic”, to use the PC buzzword of the day. People have different ones, for a start, which is not ideal. But still more problematic are the side-effects. Opinions make you think, question, evaluate and re-evaluate. They open up your mind and expand your horizons – in a climate when minds should be sealed shut and horizons close enough to touch. No wonder British academics are giving up on them.

Over the past decade, campuses have increasingly put pressure on professors and lecturers to censor themselves and their teaching material, but a You Gov report released yesterday suggests that right wing academics are feeling this pressure most strongly. Whilst both right and left-leaning university faculty members admitted to believing that the airing of political opinions might adversely impact their career prospects (cancel culture doesn’t discriminate), a poll of 820 academics found that nearly a third — 32 per cent — of those with right-wing views had completely stopped airing opinions in either their teaching or research, compared with 13 per cent of those in the centre and on the left. (OK, so it discriminates a bit – but for the greater good).

I was amazed only 32 per cent of these academics were keeping it zipped, until I realised that 336 of those who responded to the poll were retired, and that the real figure was likely to be twice that. After all, every day some public (or private) figure foolish enough to air their views on politics, gender or any other trigger topic has their scalp held up in trophy-hunting-style warning to anyone thinking of doing the same.

These transgressors don’t just lose their jobs either, as the former New York Times journalist Bari Weiss pointed out at the weekend (having herself been ‘cancelled’ for her opinions) but are rendered “radioactive” in an act she called “social murder.”

So what’s in the opinion-airing game for academics? On a good day: nothing. On a bad one, you’d get passed over for a promotion or sacked, have your publisher pull out of every forthcoming book deal, and be forced to walk up and down the country for eternity with the scarlet letter ‘T’ (for ‘toxic’) emblazoned on your back. It’s enough to make anyone think twice about making that casual Brexit quip … Continue reading >>>
