Interesting report here from the BBC on the “One Nation” rally that has just taken place in Washington DC. They don’t tell us how many turned up but they do emphasise on several occasions that the rally was organised by “left-wingers” and that it featured “left wing activists”. Not only that but that this was all about rekindling support for Obama! And there was me thinking from so many previous BBC reports that Obama was a centrist, a moderate, not a hard left wing ideologue that needs rancid race hustlers like Al Sharpton and Communist lovers like Harry Belafonte to turn out and support him. The tone of the report is downbeat and the BBC seems to accept that Obama is going to get a bloody nose in just a few short weeks time. It will be interesting to see how they handle the GOP resurgence and in particular the Tea Party factor which is driving this.

    Well at least there will be fewer stories about empty champagne bottles in the corridors of the Bilious Broadcasting Corporation! {Of course most of them will in any case be over in the States doing their ‘public service’ helicopter-inspired coverage of Obama’s humiliation.}

    Black arm-bands all round? 😀

    Here’s a video of some of those unnamed “left-wing groups”.

    BBC correspondents will go out of their way to find a Birther or someone with an Obama/Hitler poster to interview at conservative rallies (eg coverage of Glenn Beck rally by Finlo Rohrer or Hilary Andersson for example) but they never draw mention to the far left wackos who attend pro-Obama marches.  Funny that.

      “draw attention” not “draw mention”


    • Craig says:

      That Finlo Rohrer article (and the equivalent report) about Glenn Beck’s rally didn’t end with what this article ends with:

      So, the BBC wants to hear from these people!

    Obviously the BBC will concentrate on the damage that the racist Tea Party candidates have done to the badly split Republican party.

    For the BBC to even acknowledge there is such a thing as a left winger is either a step forward or a slip up. It would have been so easy to fudge this. Let’s keep an eye out for stealth edits. 


    • Demon1001 says:

      To the BBC “Left Wing” is code for something good, honest and worthwhile.   “Right Wing” is their code for all that is evil and reprehensible which bizarrely includes the Communist extremists in Russia and China.

      So for them to call these marchers “Left Wing” means they are nice, kind and generously spirited people who will stand up for such a decent man as Obama.


      • RGH says:

        The BBC is quite ‘confused’ as to the nature of the left wing…after all the BBC group love-in is left.

        The protests in Bremen yesterday show this  confusion.The demonstators were left wing activists, according to the BBC comrades. viz.

        Thousands of police were deployed in Bremen on Saturday as some 1,800 mainly left-wing activists marched through the city in protest.

        In Germany their is another take on these ‘activists’. These extreme leftists are not nice. In fact, they are very nasty and very well organised. It took 3000 police to enable them to exercise their democratic right to abuse, intimidate and threaten without tearing the city centre apart. These folk are, of course, violently pro-Palestinian but have to tread a very careful line to avoid falling foul of the ‘Volksverhetzungsgesetz’ against anti-semitism so it is anti-zionism and anti- america instead.

        Rund 1800 meist LINKSEXTREME Demonstranten sind am Samstag in Bremen gegen die Feiern zum 20. Jahrestag der Wiedervereinigung auf die Straße gegangen.

    The choice of the term “One Nation” has been pinched from centrist Conservatives.  It is amazing that a bunch of “left wingers” will march under a conservative slogan.  😀


  7. David Preiser (USA) says:

    Meanwhile, the political momentum has switched to conservative groups such as the Tea Party – a vocal organisation that opposes big government and wants to reverse most of the president’s reforms.  
    “Reforms”?  ObamaCare is a transformation, not a reformation.  And the BBC lied about what it all meant anyway.  All those millions of poor uninsured people the BBC told you were going to be saved by His Health Care Plan For Us still have no insurance.  In fact, it’s become even harder for them to get coverage as insurance companies are dropping plans left and right, and one of the biggest companies (Principal Financial) is getting out of health insurance altogether.  All because the President’s “reforms” were actually geared towards putting them all out of business as the first step towards Socialized medicine.  
    It has staged several rallies in Washington over the past year.  
    That’s it?  What about the thousands that have been held all across the country for the last 18 months you lying sacks of suet?

    Oh, yes:  It’s not an organization, as we all know.  There are several large organizations and hundreds of little groups involved, as well as hundreds of thousands of individuals who are members of no group at all.  None of these control anything except themselves.  Yet another outright lie from the BBC about the Tea Party movement.

    I can’t wait for the BBC’s coverage of the Comedy Central Democrats rally at the end of the month.  They’ll probably treat it like when Peter and Barnabas went to Antioch to preach the word of the Lord.


    • hippiepooter says:

      Erm, had the BBC been around at the time, wouldn’t they have treated it somewhat like the Pope’s visit?

      You wont find BBC reporters calling the march ‘divisive’ and ‘controversial’ because conservatives and sincere democrats dont take exception to people exercising free speech.  They either agree with the opinions of those demonstrating or they dont, or they dont know.

      Only leftists are so insecure about what they believe in that they have to play silly little word games that should have been left at kindergarten.  But then it is argued that their outlook is determined by arrested development. …


  8. RGH says:

    Ah,but the Beeboids are suckers for the Obama line that his presidency is a ‘personal journey of discovery’. It brings a lump to the throat and no doubt, tears to the eyes.


  9. David Preiser (USA) says:

    Somewhere, a Beeboid’s head just exploded:

    Democratic NY governor praises Tea Party movement

    Well, I guess because he’s blind, he just can’t see that the Tea Parties are full of white people holding signs about not wanting Socialism.


    • hippiepooter says:

      I’ll leave cynical evaluations aside and just say its good to see the Democrats still have people who can practice grown up politics.


  10. Asuka Langley Soryu says:

    See, to me this is an improvement. Maybe they’ll start referring to the Green Party, the SWP et al as Left Wing from now on. 


  11. deegee says:

    As noted the BBC and most of the media is remarkably coy about the relative attendance at One Nation and Restoring the Honor rallies. ‘One Nation’ Rally: Liberal Media Concludes Size Doesn’t Matter suggests that Glenn Beck’s effort attracted somewhere between 250,000 and 400,000 people. One Nation’s crowd would have been roughly 22,000 to 85,000 people at most.

    The animated gif  suggests the lower figure is more likely to be accurate.
