Biased BBC contributor Alan comments;

“Mark Mardell suspects Pat Buchannan of being a racist based on some quotes from his book…some of which are reproduced below….though they seem nothing that you wouldn’t read in any British newspaper, Guardian and Independent excepted, today…or hear from Trevor Phillips himself, not to mention Cameron’s speech on multi-culturalism.

Mardell complains of a more obvious split between left and right….why might that exist now? Because previously, pre-Internet, the Left wing media had the field pretty much to themselves….not to mention all the teachers and academics. The BBC was the collossus that dominated and bestrode the world having huge influence on the direction of political and social thought. Now with the internet not only can people read for themselves the sources of information without a journalist filtering it through his own prejudices but they can spread their own ideas to vast numbers of people that were out of reach only a few years ago.

The Left has lost its monopoly on information…and information is power….which is why there is a concerted effort to close down any rightwing blogs or websites that don’t echo their own thoughts….and not just websites but political parties also….Germany, whose intelligence agency states that Islam is the greatest danger to the German democracy, has decided that it is rightwing parties that should be closed down perhaps…not mosques. (,1518,815242,00.html)

Mardell whilst lamenting the separation of politics still plays that game himself…calling Buchannan a racist and his thoughts at best ‘maverick’ and ‘pungent’….no right thinking person could possibly think like that surely?

‘I haven’t read the book, but judging from extracts it is easy to see how his pungently expressed anti-multiculturalism could be seen as racist.Conservative views that seem very far to the right by British standards are all over the place – from blogs, to right-wing talk radio, and above all on Fox News. You can’t be in America long before you hear people bemoan the death of a more bipartisan past. To an extent this is piety, but sometimes the split in the media makes America feel like it is dividing into two armed camps. There is a grave danger for American democracy that the two parties not only can’t agree, they can’t even discuss.’

These are some of the quotes…are they ‘pungently’ expressed…or just expressed? They seem standard fayre for someone proud of his heritage and regretting seeing it deliberately being broken down and labelled as nasty colonialism or white and therefore racist, or too Christian or not gay enough…he looks to an America of one culture with one set of values regardless of colour…..not a dangerous mish mash of competing ones:

 ‘Perhaps some of us misremember the past. But the racial, religious, cultural, social, political, and economic divides today seem greater than they seemed even in the segregation cities some of us grew up in.  Back then, black and white lived apart, went to different schools and churches, played on different playgrounds, and went to different restaurants, bars, theaters, and soda fountains. But we shared a country and a culture. We were one nation. We were Americans.’

‘When the faith dies, the culture dies, the civilization dies, the people die. That is the progression. And as the faith that gave birth to the West is dying in the West, peoples of European descent from the steppes of Russia to the coast of California have begun to die out, as the Third World treks north to claim the estate. The last decade provided corroborating if not conclusive proof that we are in the Indian summer of our civilization.’

 From the chapter, “The End Of White America”:

‘The white population will begin to shrink and, should present birth rates persist, slowly disappear. Hispanics already comprise 42 percent of New Mexico’s population, 37 percent of California’s, 38 percent of Texas’s, and over half the population of Arizona under the age of twenty. ……. Mexico is moving north. Ethnically, linguistically, and culturally, the verdict of 1848 is being overturned. Will this Mexican nation within a nation advance the goals of the Constitution—to “insure domestic tranquility” and “make us a more perfect union”? Or has our passivity in the face of this invasion imperiled our union?’

    I wish we could swap Mark Mardell for Pat Buchanan.

     One day a few years ago, Iread both Pat Buchanans book as well as Ann Coulters.
    My world changed.
    Buchanan describes the demographics and what awaits the USA if it does not address the time bomb of race-especially the Hispanic uncheked immigration.
    Coulter demolished Paxman soon after Newsnight.
    Yes Mardy boy…having read both Americans books…it is indeed “easy to see how a BBC truogh surfer like yourself WOULD see that it might all be racist”.
    Those of us who you won`t be wanting to walk your dogs or clean you condo simpy see it as factually correct, statistically unarguable; and damn good sense.
    At least Americans are still producing these free thinkers-lookat what years as a fag in public schools does to you-end up a liberal pimp of platitudes like Jezzaor Mardy.
    Mardell needs a few minutes discussing this easily seen racism with either Ted Nugent or Chuck Norris…even their hard rockin` martial artists have more brains, soul and sense that the assembled Beebies and boobies that “speak for Britain”

      Almost impossible to reverse due to ridiculous demographic categories: if you are 1/16 or 1/32 (or whatever) hispanic/negro/indian that’s what you remain so ANY interacial marriage reduces the white pool. I am not worried about this from a geneticist’s point of view because hybrid vigour etc is a good thing (all my littl’uns are half Venezuelan), I am worried about this from the category/pigeon-hole/racial grouping point of view becasue it is clearly ridiculous: look at any cencus, there is one ‘white’ category and about 10 or more differnet black/Asian/whatever categories. I have “white” African friends who are darker than some that insist they are blacks yet there is no “white African” category.

    David and everyone else on here, may I politely suggest and recommend that you all read, at least once, the excellent book on political correctness/cultural marxism  and the western  left wing mindset entitled,  The Retreat of Reason, by Anthony Browne. The BBC and the Guardian were up in uproar about this wonderful and truthful book as it exposes their constant lies and cover-ups  and their ‘dictatorship on virtue’. It also makes a mockery of the left’s irrational intolerance of truth, because truth hurts!   The cultural marxist view holds that minority groups, no matter how malign they might be, should be impervious to criticism, and are justified in their attacks on the West because we are the oppressors. A real eye opener people. You can find it on Amazon.


  4. David Preiser (USA) says:

    When was there ever a bi-partisan past? Certainly not when the country founded, certainly not in the early 1800s, certainly not after the Civil War, certainly not at the beginning of the 20th Century, certainly not in the 1950s, certainly not during my lifetime. Yet again Mardell betrays his ignorance, and his slavish devotion to Left-wing media groupthink.

    The only time people ever whine about the need for bi-partisanship is when they want the other side to shut up and help the whiners get their way. It’s like St. Jon Stewart and his “Rally to Restore Smugness”. Let’s all work together: for the Democrat agenda.

    This is a combination of rewriting history and a nostalgia for an idyllic past which never existed. It’s also a lie.


    • hippiepooter says:

      There was a bipartisan American past in the 40’s, 50’s, 60’s, 70’s and 80’s in the fight against Communism.  It stemmed from a common belief in democracy.

      Now the Democrat Party is broadly hijacked by the Marxist left and much of the supposedly mainstream centre-left prefer to make common cause with left-fascists instead of with Republicans in defence of democracy.

      The Marxist left have insinuated since the 60’s a very subtle and insiduous mind game of mind control, coalesced in the form of Political Correctness, and it is reaping its dividends in bringing about the collapse of democracy.

      Strewth, in Britain, its not just the ‘centre-left’ that makes common cause with left-fascism, its the centre and cameroon ‘right’ as well.

      That’s why we’re living through such a ridiculous paralysis in how to deal with Jihad and manifestly perverse judgements from European Courts that jeopardise our national security.


  5. Span Ows says:

    Note the accidentally on purpose tarbrushing: “Conservative views that seem very far to the right by British standards…”

    Conservative views…if pushed he would say it only had a capital C because it began the sentence; even if he did right small c conservative it is still hinting that these views are far right. Also it maintains the stupidity left=good/can’t be acist, right=probably racist by default.


  6. hippiepooter says:

    While I find myself broadly sympathetic to what Mr Buchanan wrote, much as I do with what the BNP put out for public consumption, Buchanan, like the BNP, is racist, and I wouldn’t touch him with a barge pole.

    He is also patently anti-semitic.  Something the BNP tries to cover up these days.

    This said, so telling that Mardell tries to portray polarisation coming from the right and tries to depict Fox as ‘far right’.

    While Cameron has fallen meekly in line with the cultural Marxism propagated by the left proganda monster the BBC, conservatives in the US have a tad more spirit, and have mounted a fightback in the culture wars.

    Sticks in the craw of a subversive like Mardell.

    This story cries out for attention from an impartial public service broadcaster:-

    The BBC wont.  At least not in any way that doesn’t shill for Jihad propaganda.


    • cjhartnett says:

      Thanks Mr Pooter.
      Didn`t get this in his book, but he`s condemned for that if true…and I`ve no reason to doubt it.
      Sadly, when the BBC hate someone-my default postion is to side with them as a first response…fox hunting, Rupert, smokers, Crufts, Royal Family, Thatcher, MacDonalds….
      Jeez…if my inner Owen Shoutie could only see me now after thirty years of the Beeb!


  7. TooTrue says:

    Senior leftie hack, Robin Lustig, has this to say on his blog:

    “As my colleague Mark Mardell, the BBC’s North America editor, put it in a blogpost a couple of days ago: “The drumbeat of war has grown louder in the past few days.”

    That drumbeat emanates from Israel, where the defence minister, Ehud Barak, talks of Iran soon entering a “zone of immunity”, in other words a moment when its uranium enrichment programme will be so well protected in deep underground bunkers that it will become virtually impregnable.”

    Evidently for Lustig, Khameine talking about cutting out the “cancer” that is Israel and expressing support for all who attack Israel is not a drumbeat, loud or otherwise.

    So I explained that Ehud Barak is consistently moderate in his remarks re the crisis and asked Lustig what he had to gain by such propaganda. Doubt he’ll reply, though he does sometimes.

    A while back he titled a post “Will Obama get tough with Israel?” The bias is set in stone.

    Cant’ bring myself right now to read Mardell’s rubbish.

      Beeboids citing Beeboids back and forth may convince them they are existing outside of their own brainpans, but I don’t think it is convincing mnay others.

      Especially when shoring up each other’s prejudices.

      Mr. Lustig’s body of work does not inspire on the professional or integrity fronts.

      This is where I share thoughts on world events and point you in the direction of interesting comments I’ve heard or read.”

      That is actually as spooky a summary of BBC editorial as can be imagined, given the efforts of him, Black, Robinsion, Mason…

      Which ‘direction’ might that be, guys?


  8. Maturecheese says:

    Anyone who can see and points out the demographic and cultural timebomb facing us, is savaged by the left wing press.  I can only conclude that the left hates the West, Christianity and all that we stand for.
