6. “Reverend” Robert West
Switching on for Eggheads on BBC2 one night, I happened upon a Party Election Broadcast for the British National Party just in time to see a vicar flounce out of a church and spout some racist twaddle about Islam. Though not a great admirer of the Christian church generally, I was genuinely shocked that an ordained clergyman could get away saying poison like that. I dug around a little and found that the “vicar” – Robert West – isn’t a proper reverend at all. He is a former Conservative councillor from Lincolnshire who started his own church to preach a kind of twisted semi-racial separation.
Of course, the inherent contradiction is that he and his party would give Jesus Christ – by birth a Jew from Palestine – the cold shoulder and send him back where he came from (Heaven?) is lost on these idiots. Here he is trying to defend himself on daytime TV:
5. Former UKIP Man Godfrey Bloom Opens His Mouth And Out Pours…
Some people live on a different planet to the rest of us. UKIP’s Godfrey Bloom can’t see why the term “Bongo Bongo Land” is racist, even after his own party leader of the time, that well-known advocate of Political Correctness, Nigel Farage, says it is. More worryingly is the way he’s had lots of messages of support. Watch to the end for an example of “the spirit that won Britain the war”.
Bloom is something of a radical anti-Green. He was filmed at the 2009 Copenhagen United Nations Climate Change Conference congratulating the French Government for sinking the Greenpeace ship, Rainbow Warrior, in 1985:
4. Millionaire Jon Voight Thinks Health Care For The Poor Takes Away His Freedoms
Although this video is a few years old, I wouldn’t have thought the “courageous” actor Jon Voight would have softened his views any. Nor the audience members, who whoop and holla whenever he says something really stupid. That the powerful American insurance and drug companies could put this message over to the majority of the people of the United States is proof that Mind Speak exists and that the world (at least a large part of it) is idiotic.
As regards bringing God into it: I’ve got news for you, suckers, Jesus Christ (as portrayed in The Bible) would have voted for these proposals. In fact, he would probably have wondered why they didn’t go much further.
3. The Earth is 6,000 years old
I looked at a lot of Creationist videos and this was probably the most evidence-led and compelling, so you can imagine how terrible most of the others are. The typical pro-Creationist video features happy library music, over which someone very calm and holy chunters on about butterflies and miracles. Others (the really boring ones) are simply page after page of text crammed on to the screen.
Sad that they don’t seem to take into account the problems of translating and compiling a diverse bunch of papers written in various ancient languages hundreds of years ago. That’s essentially what the Bible consists of. That’s why I wouldn’t personally want to take what is says as “gospel”. This video had clocked up 519,241 when I first found it…
To quote the female presenter (in a line that could have come straight out of The Simpsons): “Life from non-life, apart from God’s direct intervention, is a fairy tale. But despite that obvious truth, evolutionists continue to build their supposedly scientific case on a foundation that virtually rules out everything that follows after it.” Yeah, right.
This video is in the Education category of Youtube. That’s how dangerous these people are: they want us to believe it. The sad thing is, many of us do. A 2012 Gallup Poll found that 46% of Americans surveyed believe Creationism explains the origin of humankind, with a mind-boggling low number of just 15% saying that humans evolved without God’s help. God help us.
2. Alex Jones at the BBC
Controversial Texan “conspiracy theorist” was over in the UK for the Bilderberg Meeting and popped into the BBC. There he found himself ridiculed by the BBC’s invariably pompous – but usually quite entertaining – policial commentator, Andrew “Brillo Pad” Neil. Brillo Pad’s dismissal of Jones and his theories began as soon as the cameras started rolling, but then the American right-winger did little to further his cause. To make matters worse, he had David Aaronovitch pouring on an extra coating of understated scorn, whenever he was allowed to get a word in edgeways:
If you want to know more about Alex Jones and his ideas, check out his hugely popular website, Infowars.com. Jones has an unshakeable belief that all Americans have the right to carry practically any weapon they chose in order to defend themselves. Primarily their point of defence is from their own government, but I get the idea that he’s got one eye open for the packs of underprivileged and desperate human flotsam who might one day decide to take “what’s his”.
Alex is also in broad agreement with David Icke that there’s a conspiracy to take over the world. This involves a plan to kill off up to 80% of the human race by wrecking immune systems with vaccination and fluoridation. Many people in the Alternative Health Culture are against immunisation and putting stuff in the water for similar reasons, though not many of them cite a World Domination Theory.
1. BBC Bias
I found this tasty little morsel on a forum called “Biased BBC The Forum”, notable for its new and refreshing way with punctuation. The video – one of a series from someone or something called “StopTheBBC” – attempts to prove that the BBC is “more than biased” against America (presumably they mean the USA), Christianity and Israel by using damning newspaper clippings and bombastic rock music. If a sub-editor on the Daily Mail says it is true, then it probably is. (Personally, I take the opposite view…) “More than biased…” is just the first part of a sentence that ends: “the BBC is EVIL”.
