Listened to the BBC all day yesterday and their reports about the ‘US Marine’ who wanted to be a terrorist….no idea, but could have guessed, that he was a Muslim convert…..just why would the BBC miss that crucial and very relevant piece of info from their bulletins? Why tell us he was a Marine but not a Muslim….which is more relevant? The BBC web report manages to include a quick mention of the fact that he is a Muslim convert but again seems more concerned about his Marine status telling us…’Mr Jameson completed basic recruitment training for the US Marine Corps in 2009, but was reportedly discharged for not disclosing details of his asthma.’ So hardly a Marine and nearly ten years ago….but a more important fact about his identity than being a Muslim? Nothing at all about how he came to convert to Islam, when he did it and whether his asthma was a drawback when it came to exercising his new religious fervour.
Then again it’s just the usual BBC practice to downplay any facts that implicate the ‘religion of peace’ as a motivation…just as they happily report the Aussie police’s great big lie that the attack by a Muslim in Melbourne was not terrorism. Others beg to differ:
We have all been knocked off kilter by this terror attack in Melbourne, another cowardly, vicious and sickening attack using a car to mow down innocent civilians.
The police arrested an Afghan migrant who according to their own reports cited the treatment of Muslims as his grievance and his motivation.
Yet Victoria Police waited five hours before sharing any of the detailed information and even then denied any link to terrorism.
This denial is so worrying so ignorant and so dangerous, yet even the Prime Minister adopted this same ridiculous line.
They tell us a Muslim migrant from Afghanistan has mown down people and raved about the treatment of Muslims yet they say there is no link to terrorism.
How can the public feel safe if the authorities and politicians won’t even confront the very real enemy of Islamist extremism terrorism.
This is the evil whose name they dare not speak — they are in jihad denialism.
Another favourite BBC narrative is of course that Brexit is a big mistake, the result of ignorance, perhaps stupidity, and bigotry. Hence we get constant ‘subtle’ little nudges urging us to look back in history and weep as we would then realise what a catastrophic disaster Brexit will be just as country ‘X’ discovered when it left the utopian collective and benevolent dictatorship that had long held it in its kind embrace….such as say the once state of Czechoslovakia…..which the BBC now tells us was a happy, multicultural place that has now been rent asunder by savage nationalism….they really should have stayed together. The BBC’s whole tone is one of regret and negativity. Brexit, you know, will be just like this…even if ‘just like this’ isn’t in fact the truth at all about Slovakia and the Czech state….I’m pretty sure they are quite happy making their own way in the world.
