Check out this article from the Birmingham Mail.
The actual event is that someone drove a car at speed into a crowd of 14 men, apparently targeting them all because they belonged to the EDL but doing a lot of physical harm to one man who is the leader of the Sikh division of the English Defense League.If you read the article however, the entire thing is vilification of the EDL with barely a word about the serious crime that was committed, the attempted murder or injury of 14 people because the driver or whoever he represents does not agree with the message of the EDL.
In the article, it goes on to vilify the EDL thusly: “The EDL play on the historical animosity that exists between some sections of the Sikh and Muslim community”. The article drips with contempt for the EDL at this point.
However it utterly fails to explain why that ‘historical animosity’ exists. I suspect it has something to do with the Islamic attempts to exterminate Hindus and Sikhs from the face of the earth on numerous occasions. But I would have to look that up to be sure. Something about General Tamerlan perhaps.
The article continues: “No doubt the EDL will use this incident to portray themselves as victims.”
If having a car drive into your group as an attempt to kill or maim you does not make you a victim then the UK has moved from Orwellian to Kafkaesque. Do the authors of this leftist propaganda rag not understand that once they create this kind of targeted attack form of journalism that it can and will be pointed at them as soon as the right variable changes? Ownership, person who funds it, government etc? This kind of ‘reporting’ is an atrocity and a crime on the public no matter who it favors. Human beings, and dogs for that matter, make choices based on available information. When you deceive them, you rob them of the right of free will.
Two men have already been arrested, but not named, that allegedly drove the vehicle. Is it because UK law forbids naming a suspect until formally arraigned? Doubtful as non-Muslims are outed by the press the moment they are suspected if memory serves. Or is it because if the two are muslims it changes the equation of the slant this article shows. Either way, the people of the free world would do well to start learning the basics of determining what and what does not constitute information.
