WORKING FOR THE CLAMPDOWN ….

As the march towards the complete suppression of Free Speech, independent thought and deed and any alternative to the mainstream narrative of the state gathers pace – would it come as any surprise to learn that the BBC (and undoubtedly other mass media juggernauts), have now started to target those who are seen as the citizenry of the future?

In the following BBC article, published in December last year, it was noted that from this month, Secondary Schools and sixth forms across this country are going to be ‘Targeted’ by BBC Journalists:

in an attempt to go into schools to speak to young people and give them the equipment they need to distinguish between what’s true and what’s false….”

Is it a coincidence that this is being implemented in the same month that a BBC news team was captured on video admitting that they were going to report on a mostly peaceful, non-political march organised by the FLA against terrorism and extremism in the centre of Birmingham, as being an ‘Extreme Right Wing Event’, and which despite the gathering being nothing of the sort, did not prevent other left-wing Anti Racist media outlets and groups labeling it as being:

‘avowedly racist and Islamophobic. The sharp trajectory rightwards that Stand up to Racism has repeatedly warned of was clearly visible’.

So what exactly are the BBC going to be teaching our kids?

How to identify genuine instances of ‘Fake News’ …. or to adhere to the official narrative being peddled by the mass media arm of the state and attack anyone who questions it?

‘The BBC is launching a new scheme to help young people identify real news and filter out fake or false information.

The project is targeted at secondary schools and sixth forms across the UK.

From March, up to 1,000 schools will be offered mentoring in class and online to help them spot so-called fake news.

BBC journalists including Kamal Ahmed, Tina Daheley, Amol Rajan and Huw Edwards will also take part in events aimed at helping students.

James Harding, the director of BBC News, said: “This is an attempt to go into schools to speak to young people and give them the equipment they need to distinguish between what’s true and what’s false.”

The move follows a year-long study, conducted by the University of Salford in conjunction with BBC Newsround, looking at how well children aged between 9 and 14 can spot false information.

Although most of the children from across all age groups said they knew what fake news was, many of them could not always distinguish between fake and real stories when presented with them.’

    So forced propaganda on kids now from an organisation no longer trusted because of it’s cover up’s of child abuse.

    I hope some parents will be refusing to allow their kids to be brainwashed by the Government Propaganda media unit known as the BBC, that no one with any sense trusts.

    Just reading the source article from the BBC makes it easy to see where this is going.

    “The [fake news] issue surfaced again this month when the President retweeted three inflammatory videos from a British far-right group whose authenticity was subsequently challenged.”

    Two of which were absolutely genuine while the third was a ‘probable’.

    BBC aka Ministry for Propaganda?

    It’s worth having a quick skim through the members bio’s of both the BBC Board and Executive Committee.

    A few examples.

    Sir David Climenti. Ex Deputy of Bank of England, ex Head of Mercers Guild (top-dog of the 12 Guilds). Wrote the govt report that led to the end of the BBC Trust – now Chairman of BBC Board.

    James Purnell. Ex MP, ex Sec of State for Work and Pensions, ex Director of Demos, ex Chairman of the Institute for Public Policy Research.

    Tom Ilube. Ex Egg bank, set up Hammersmith Academy which was funded by Mercers Guild.

    Many of those at the top of the Beeb have interesting backgrounds, with more than a few connections between them. While the Beeb might not be run directly by the govt, it would certainly be fair to suggest it is controlled by the Establishment

    Last one!
    Is the Beeb stepping outside it’s remit with this venture? Does the licence tax cover this?

    Reply
    • The BBC are the propaganda mouthpiece of the state, so it’s entirely possible that they are being financed by them too – so the licence fee may be the only part of the revenue they receive that we are aware of.

        “The BBC are the propaganda mouthpiece of the state”

        Indeed. Tories who complain that the BBC has a left wing bias either miss the point, or are being disingenuous and hypocritical. In the New Labour era, the BBC very probably did cleave to a liberal, New Labour agenda. Now that the Tories are back in government for the last 8 years, the Beeb have been if anything pro-Tory.

        Hardly surprising, as he who pays the piper calls the tune.

          Red, blue or yellow – they all have the same owner. The proles get to see them compete in an illusion of democracy, but it doesn’t really matter what the result is. The owner always wins.

            Can’t help thinking how funny it would be if the kids parents told them to call the Police if they are approached by anyone from the BBC.

            Sage advice considering their reputation.

            A few of those to Police stations around the country would put an end to it.

            Not that I’m advocating such behaviour of course (much).

        For comparison purposes, in the ROI, it is €160 a tv licence.

        Converted to £, this works out at £140 at current exchange rates.

    The mainstream media are lying about Russia too. No surprise there either.

      And the family on our throne who call themselves ‘royal’ that less and less people seem to have the time of day for, understandably, seem to be filling up our Monarchy with Jews. Making a complete mockery of it all as always.

      Nerve agents are a battlefield weapon, designed to kill within minutes.

      That’s why drills to ‘suit-up’ quickly are practiced regularly. I was taught that a pinhead-sized droplet on skin or inhaled would have you starting to twitch in seconds.

      From there on, it gets very unpleasant (understatement!) very quickly, ending with death.

      The ONLY chance you get is to stab an ampule of Atropine (part of the NBC kit) into your leg at the ‘twitching’ stage. You do this each time the twitching starts again, until you get atropine poisoning, which is also unpleasant but which you will recover from.

      Which is why I call BS on the story.

    I agree, the BBC is our ‘State Broadcaster’ and now delivers little more than propaganda in it’s News. I was disgusted last week by their ‘Day of Rage’ against Jeremy Corbyn. I won’t vote Labour, but not because of the nonsense story on Anti-Semitism. Corbyn is NOT a Jew-hater. The BBC never reports on protest but made it’s first exception in YEARS to report on this tosh ad nauseum. He sacks his NI Minister and then his own MPs come up with this to discredit him. BBC cooperates and OPENLY conflates criticising Israel with anti-semitism – truly shocking!

    Have to disagree about FLA though, saw something of their on Facebook and actually checked them out, their own stuff I mean, not BBC reports. Yup, they’re racist alright. SOME of their stuff COULD be genuine, COULD come from a good place, but then you see the ACTUAL message behind it. Looks like BNP and EDL have their hooks into this and are dragging them into the mud with them.

    Reply
    • From what I have been able to ascertain Gary, the BNP have had little or no involvement with the FLA, but as the EDL are a rudderless and pretty much disorganised group who will attach themselves to anything, you may be right about that.

      However, as I am a great believer in fair and balanced reporting of events, it is only fair and balanced to point out the involvement of the SWP (Socialist Workers Party) whenever any perceived ‘Right Wing’ event is organised.

      It is also fair to point out the whenever the SWP or AntiFa or the hard left are in attendance, you can guarantee that there will be violence, and of course the mass media will gleefully focus on that aspect – of course ignoring the root cause …. the state-funded agitators of the hard left.

      That is a FACT!

    With it being in a royal park, Lizzy ought to get involved.

    “Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and of Her other Realms and Territories Queen, Head of the Commonwealth, Defender of the Faith”.

    “The title “Defender of the Faith” reflects the Sovereign’s position as the Supreme Governor of the Church of England, who is thus formally superior to the Archbishop of Canterbury.” (wikipedia)

    She should realise too, that ‘The Firm’ will be increasingly threatened as Islam gains ground.

    Reply
    • What you are saying makes perfect sense and factually accurate Phil, but we both know that she/they will do nothing about it.

      But I would hazard a guess that her private thoughts are very much different to her public image.
