BBC Censorship: Occupiers Arrested In Plot To Blow Up Bridge Edition

UPDATE: The BBC just posted a news brief about it after all. But the association of the criminals with the Occupy Movement is censored. Instead, they quote a DoJ mouthpiece saying the plot had nothing to do with the anniversary of Osama Bin Laden’s death. LOL! We all know what this was going to celebrate, and the BBC won’t admit it.

Today is May Day, a prominent day in Communist history. Some non-Left blogs last year started calling this “Victims of Communism Day”, in remembrance of the tens of millions of victims of Communists in pursuit of their goals.

Today the BBC has done a quick hype of their darling Occupiers, who are using May Day to cause violence and disrupt civilized society. Of course, that’s not how the BBC tells it. The news brief is full of hype and positive vibes about these people.

Terror Plot Suspects Appear In Court

Federal authorities on Tuesday morning announced that five people were arrested in Cleveland for allegedly conspiring to use explosives to blow up a local bridge.

Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio, and Stephen D. Anthony, Special Agent in Charge of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Cleveland office, discussed the arrests and subsequent charges related to what they referred to as a “national security case.”

A news conference was held Tuesday morning at the Cleveland FBI headquarters at 1501 Lakeside Avenue.

Fox 8′s Stacey Frey reports that the suspects have been identified as Brandon Baxter, 20; Anthony Hayne, 35; Joshua Stafford, 23; Connor Stevens, 20; and Douglas Wright, 26. Baxter, Hayne and Wright were arrested Monday night by members of the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force on charges of conspiracy and attempted use of explosive materials to damage physical property affecting interstate commerce.

A criminal complaint filed Tuesday morning states that Baxter, Hayne and Wright are self-proclaimed anarchists who formed a small group that considered a series of plots over several months.

Self-proclaimed anarchists? Try self-proclaimed Occupiers.

This must be more of that love for humanity and sense of civic duty Katty Kay was telling us about, and which Paul Mason is celebrating on Newsnight. I pretty much saw this coming after spending a few hours among these darlings of the BBC.

What I mean is that these people can keep doing this for a very long time. And eventually, they’re going to realize that it isn’t working.  Will they fess up and become a ready-made cadre of Obamessiah activists?  I don’t know. If not, the emotions will have driven many of them into a frenzied state over time. Fighting the man, speaking truth to power, getting arrested over and over again, and watching a seemingly endless stream of video clips of their comrades fighting with police, getting pepper-sprayed and bundled into police vans will not yield a happy result.  Like we heard from a couple people, they all seriously think that obstructing traffic and infringing on other people’s space and property is their right. Freedom of speech and right to peaceable assembly and all that. What they tragically fail to understand is that, unlike many blacks in the South before the Civil Rights movement, they can exercise their right to vote without fear, and all this glorious civil disobedience is unnecessary extremist nonsense.  The Tea Party movement has proven that they don’t need to do any of this. I found only a couple of people who even remotely grasped this point.  So I think the violent confrontation – always started by the nasty fascist police infringing on their rights, bien sur – will become a kind of ouroburossian (if that’s not a word, it is now) reality. They’ll continuously create situations which they’ll interpret as justifying their cause, projecting onto it false equivalences with everything from Wat Tyler to the German Peasant Rebellion to Gandhi to MLK and the Civil Rights movement. That’s when you’ll really start to see the stuff the BBC told you would never happen over here.

    All of which means that Kitty Kay and Uncle Nobby Mason have have given violent lunatics a far warmer endorsement than Mark Steyn, Melanie Philips, Robert Spencer et al ever gave to a certain Norwegian nutcase. What chance any articles lamenting the rise of extremist rhetoric at the BBC?


    • David Preiser (USA) says:

      Remember how the BBC kept frowning that the “boiling anger” of the Tea Party movement? How much violence and civil disobedience has happened at all Tea Parties combined?

      Instead, they celebrate the violence of the Occupiers.


    • James says:

      Was watching the Hunt for Bin Laden on ITV this evening. Interestingly they gave Bin Laden’s motives for the 911 attack. He wanted to free the Palestinians from the Zionists. Hmm, I wonder where I have heard that one before?


  2. Louis Robinson says:

    Hey, BBC. This is the headline:
    “Occupy Movement Planned To Blow Up Bridge”
    Now say it!


    • Guest Who says:

      ‘Hey, BBC. This is the headline:
      Ah, the problem is it ‘wouldn’t fit’.
      Not in terms of space… but ‘other parameters’


  3. George R says:

    The global left-Islamic-alliance includes a commitment to even violent overthrow of Western governments, corporations and political groups which it condemns. And it appears that some political Beeboids are right in that alliance.

    If it wasn’t for neoliberalism and free market economics these middle class left wing guardian-reading fair trade coffee-sipping scum would be on the production line sticking labels on bottles. adherents of socialism (funded by capitalism) never cease to amaze me in their facile understanding of even the most rudimentary economic theory. Chomsky and all the rest of the puerile f88king dreamers from the sixties just don’t understand that socialism is incompatible with liberty and enterprise-the two factors which have given them a base for their vociferous freedoms.


    • jarwill101 says:

      Well said, Merlin. Close down all sociology, PPE & ‘political science’ degree courses. They’re churning out far too much CO2. All departments to be converted to engineering labs. Sack all the lecturers, & then direct them to the vegetable/fruit fields of Eastern England: help them get back to the land & reconnect with nature. Re-instate chronologically-taught British history in the schools, emphasising our achievements. And lets, for Christ’s sake, introduce hard-headed economics lessons, so our children understand where money does, & doesn’t, come from. Let’s have a ‘cultural revolution’ of our own & give these Macbook-clutching, entitlement-heavy, spoilt, posturing fantasists a dose of reality they’ll never forget. The left, particularly the pampered, privileged, left, are congenital liars & self-decievers par excellence. The novelist, Robert Harris, described the Guardian’s Seumas Milne, rampant anti-Semite & apologist for Soviet Russia, as a ‘Stalinist Rip Van Winkle’. Yep, high time for these sleepers to wake from their feather beds, their Masonesque dreams of Looter Saints & ‘moderate Islam’ & look the real world in the eye. Now, if only Oliver Reed was still with us, what a BBC DG he’d make.


      • Merlin says:

        Totally agree! I strongly feel that we need to focus more on hard subjects such as maths and physics; these subjects usually dispel any sense of entitlement purely because of the bloody hard work and logic required to progress in these topics. Sociology and the liberal arts (which have their place of course) fill too many heads with too many fantasies and grand notions of utopia. Physics and maths got us to the moon and back, sociology just causes disagreement and ambiguity (in my humble opinion lol)

    Some more links…there’s plenty of info out there…waiting for the BBC to join the dots……………………………zzzzz….

    That last bit of that BBC piece…

    “An official from the US Department of Justice said that the plot was not connected to the first anniversary of Osama Bin Laden’s death.”

    How thick are these people – or more importantly, how thick do they think we are!! Seeing the mug-shots of those predictably styled lefty anarchists, and considering the current flare-ups and trouble making from the Occupy types for May Day, our first thought was to link this to Bin Laden!! Perhaps the BBC would like to warn us now of the spectre of right-wing extremism in the United States. It seems to be their M.O. whenever one of their favoured groups starts misbehaving.

    …and a good cartoon here…

    Interesting that all 5 photos are published (Scott I KNOW they’re published elsewhere). Does anyone think these would have been published by the BBC had the men had longer beards, browner skin and were called Mohammed? I doubt it and the reply to any complaint would be “It’s an ongoing investigation, these are only arrests blah blah blah.”

  9. George R says:

    After giving inordinate, politically empathetic prominence to its much beloved ‘Occupy’ illegal activities, BBC-Democrat has an unfinished sentence of poltical introspection (towards the end of piece):

    “It is not clear whether the May Day activities will be enough to bring Occupy Wall Street back to prominence.”

    The completed sentence should have added:-

    ‘but BBC-Democrats will continue to do all it can to make this happen.’
