I have been following closely the events that took place in London today, using various social media platforms, as well as the mainstream media reporting, in order to try and get a balanced, overall picture of what was going on.
It should come as no surprise, however, that on SkyNews this evening, their coverage of the events that took place in London today, consisted of focussing on the image above, of a man urinating next to a memorial dedicated to PC Keith Palmer, who died in 2017, from the wounds he sustained during the Westminster Terrorist attack.
Although that was a pretty insensitive thing to do, and wholly inexcusable, it must be noted that he was not actually urinating on the memorial – as a number of mainstream media outlets have claimed – it was to the side of the stone, as the image clearly shows.
This is purely a distraction, and also a very convenient photo opportunity, in my opinion, as it has not even been confirmed if this man was actually involved in the protests at all, or if he was simply not able to find a public toilet, as they had all been closed for the day.
His actions have been condemned of course, and rightly so, but to claim, as the mainstream media have, that it was ‘Far Right Groups’, and ‘Drunken men carrying cans of beer, who went to London to attack #BlackLivesMatter protesters’, who were solely responsible for any violence and disorder, is categorically untrue.
The Prime Minister has commented, ‘Racist thuggery has no place on our streets’, and unsurprisingly, the mainstream media, have been rolling out a series of talking heads, who are wetting themselves and gleefully pointing their bony fingers directly at the ‘White Supremacists’, and ‘Far Right Mobs’ as being the perpetrators.
There was not one mention of AntiFa, Far Left and Communist agitators, Black Power activists etc, representatives of whom were all in attendance, and historically, are not known for protesting peacefully.
For a fair and balanced report on todays events, two specific incidents must be included, which show an entirely different side of the narrative being pushed both by the media and politicians, and to purposely ignore them, is not only biased and one-sided, but entirely dishonest.
But what it does show, is that the mainstream media cannot be trusted to report on any issues with accuracy.
The following videos were posted to social media earlier today, and as far as I am aware have not been shown by, or referred to by the mainstream media, despite being easily found online, and clearly show the incidents I referred to earlier.
They completely contradict the version that is being offered by the mainstream media.
Please watch this.
