Jew-hating BBC caught out yet again

Jew-hating BBC bias exposed again?

You’re all probably aware of a hostage-taking in which a British terrorist who held four Jews hostage at gunpoint last Saturday at a Texas synagogue told his brother that he had been planning the event for two years and that he came to America to “go down as a martyr.”

In a recording of the call that he made from Beth Israel synagogue to his brother Gulbar Malik Faisal Akram said he came to America on a jihadi mission and to demand the release of convicted terrorist Aafia Siddiqui, known as “Lady Al-Qaeda.”

Here’s how the Jew-hating, Muzlim-adoring BBC reported the story:

I looked up the word ‘detained’ in an online dictionary and came up with the following example:

To detain someone is to delay that person for a short period of time: “We were detained in traffic and arrived at the theatre a little late”. People can also be detained in hospital or detained by the police for questioning.

I’m not convinced that being held at gunpoint by a crazed member of the Religion of Peace who was screaming things like “f***ing Jews” and “we should kill them all” really can be described as being “detained”. But this is just another example of BBC bias.

Years of BBC bias?

Of course we all know the BBC has been biased for years. It has consistently been anti-British, pro-EU, anti-Semitic, pro-immigration, anti-family, pro-single-sex and has relentlessly pumped out climate catastrophist propaganda. The years of BBC lies have been well documented in at least three books:

Is the BBC in breach of contract?

If I ever won the lottery, I would chuck a couple of million at investigating whether one could run a class action against the BBC for ‘Breach of Contract’.

My contention would be that when we pay the TV licence fee for BBC services, we are entering into a contract with the BBC for the BBC to provide its services as detailed in the BBC charter.

Section 4 of the BBC charter states: “The Agreement accompanying the BBC Charter requires us to do all we can to ensure controversial subjects are treated with due impartiality in our news and other output dealing with matters of public policy or political or industrial controversy”.

It goes on to state: “The BBC Agreement forbids our output from expressing the opinion of the BBC on current affairs or matters of public policy, other than broadcasting or the provision of online services”.

Clearly the BBC has failed to do that for years and therefore has been in Breach of Contract to licence-fee payers. I would contend therefore that the BBC should refund all licence fees collected for the years the BBC has failed to adhere to it impartiality requirement.

That would be rather amusing and quite interesting if the BBC lost the case.

    Very much like the BBC describing the death of a man during the 2005 Tavistock Square bombings as having died ‘When a bus exploded.’

    The BBC is merely the television version of the Guardian newspaper, and has been for years. Its ludicrously overpaid beaujolais bolshevik presenters leech off the very people they regard with such contempt.

    It is a sign of the Tory party’s relentless Leftward journey that only now, when his political skin is at stake, does Bunter hint that he just might, at some time in the distant future, live up to his pledge to do something about the BBC license fee. Or not.

    But all those who complain about the BBC, but do not turn in their TV licenses and consign their indoctrination devices to the skip, are colluding with the very people they profess to despise.

    Even if you say you only want to watch the commercially-funded stations, you are still subjected to a torrent of Leftist, woke propaganda and social engineering during the advertising breaks.

    So do yourselves a favour, as I did four years ago – rid yourselves of slavery to the box in the corner. Read a book, listen to the radio which is still not entirely taken over by the Left, and spare yourselves the stress of subjecting yourselves to hours of socialist propaganda and mindless ‘Reality TV’ drivel.

    We seem to be in a period where being normal means we have to actively hate somebody or something. Disagreement and debate has been replaced with hatred.

    After the holocaust we should all be aware of what hatred can be turned into. I watched “The Last Days” a few days ago for the second time and it had a bigger impact. We should be grateful for those who are willing to share their experiences of the holocaust. The BBC has a programme on Thursday about Prince Charles’s project to paint portraits of some survivors. Isn’t it the lack of consistency across their output that is part of the problem? But is the BBC any different to other channels? They all seem biased, along with newspapers.

    Isn’t this just a reflection of all of us, as with the climate alarmism? The young of today seem to think that slavery started with the Atlantic slave trade and are oblivious to slavery long before and after This week Rick Stein’s Cornwall on the BBC discussed the Barbary Pirates taking slaves from the SW of England. But how many young people would have been watching and thinking?

    Isn’t this related to education being biased or just not capable of covering our vast knowledge? Education has to be a life time activity and schools should teach us to question everything and how think for ourselves. I saw a Nietzsche quote recently along the lines of there are two kinds of people, those who want to know and those who want to believe. Says it all.

    Climate alarmism illustrates the problem. We agree that the physics and empirical evidence does not support the belief that we are changing and controlling the climate. But there are thousands of “scientists” who support it so who/what is somebody who has no science education to believe? The truth is that the human race can be made to believe anything, especially when in a group, so why should the BBC staff be any different? A charter isn’t going to change anything, but it should mean an end of the licence fee to support them.

    Thorpe: “I saw a Nietzsche quote recently along the lines of there are two kinds of people, those who want to know and those who want to believe.”

    The people who want to believe at all costs will instinctively avoid reading or watching anything that conflicts with their briefs. The nihilistic narcissistic liberals who have infected the body politic of the west don’t believe anything. Their corrupt inverted instincts just make them choose the most destructive ways and means possible.

    Nietzsche (1844 to 1900) said that he could see around corners, say in a sentence what other writers take a whole book to express, said that he was a posthumous philosopher who was mostly writing about what was to take place in the 20th and 21st centuries.

    This is what he wrote about the decadence of our predicament in his short book, “Twilight of the Idols”:

    “Liberal institutions immediately cease to be liberal as soon as they are attained: subsequently there is nothing more thoroughly harmful to freedom than liberal institutions. One knows, indeed, what they bring about: they undermine the will to power, they are the levelling of mountain and valley exalted to a moral principle, they make small, cowardly and smug – it is the herd animal which triumphs with them every time. Liberalism: in plain words, reduction to the herd animal.”

    “The entire West has lost those instincts out of which institutions grow, out of which the future grows: perhaps nothing goes so much against the grain of its ‘modern spirit’ as this. One lives for today, one lives very fast – one lives very irresponsibly: it is precisely this which one calls ‘freedom’. That which makes institutions institutions is despised, hated, rejected: whenever the word ‘authority’ is so much as heard one believes oneself in danger of a new slavery. The décadence in the valuating instinct of our politicians, our political parties, goes so deep that they instinctively prefer that which leads to dissolution, that which hastens the end.”
