The BBC shows us why “Fake News” is not a strong enough term

We are all used to the MSM having as much of a cultural-Marxist shift to it as does Netflix. But the BBC has hit new lows with outright factual misrepresentations, compounded by lies against those they do not like, and multiplied by unreferenced allegations and a sprinkle of repetition to try and make something that is Soviet era propaganda look more like news.

Lets have a look at the click-bait yet irrelevant title of the ‘news-piece’ for openers:

German Jews propose anti-Semitism lessons for Muslim migrants

(I am pasting screen grabs of sections of the article because if BBC is dishonest enough to post this article, they are dishonest enough to change elements of it without explanation or admission of the earlier version.)

The first part of the problem of course is that they make Antisemitism a function of nation state propaganda, and not Islam, which is the actual reason muslim countries teach antisemitism as a base value.

While there is at least an admission that “many of whom come from muslim majority countries”, this could be called the kind of half truths famously referred to as “the damnedest of lies” by our literate forefathers. I would call it a lie of omission.

Then they go on to try and pin antisemitic acts against the classically liberal AfD, a party which is the only refuge for gay or Jewish or any other people who may have one attribute that muslims find to be more of a target than a cause for a ‘celebration of diversity’.

There are entire gay and Jewish groups that are formally AfD supporters. We have featured translated videos of them here at Vlad.

And while the German communist propaganda organ, DW typically invents anything and everything to try and herd Germans into suicide booths, one expects the BBC to be a little more subtle than they are in this article.

Also, notice that there are zero examples or attributions to the statements that the AfD is 1. Far right, 2. Antisemitic and 3. the majority of antisemitic attacks are by far right groups.

These are what we call, “claims”, not reportage.

Any non-far-left-extremist publication would be drawn and quartered for this kind of rampant invention.

Now lets have a look at the video they embedded in their report:

 

 

 

Above, a screen cap from the embedded video of what they claim is, “A young Jewish man that was attacked in Berlin”

(Readers of this site might remember that we were the first people to post that video outside of Facebook, and had it pulled twice from Youtube despite every MSM source having it online)

The facts are, that this was a young Israeli Arab, who’s friend had given him a kappa as a present but warned him not to wear it in Berlin as the danger from muslims would be high there.

An interview with the man targeted can be seen below:

Although the target was NOT JEWISH, he could not believe things were that bad for Jews in Germany so he wore the kappa as a test of his friend’s assertions, that turned out to be sadly true.

These are well known facts. But the BBC made him Jewish to set the tone for the rest of the article, which is a hit piece against the AfD, with a pretext of being about classes against antisemitism for muslim immigrants.

Here is the actual video:

The rest of the article as it is can be found here. I have backed it up and photographed it in case BBC attempts further Winston Smith like changes to history.

Further example of BBC propaganda from some years ago, a documentary claiming that Jesus Christ was really a Buddhist monk named ISSA.

All fair and good. Now let’s see their documentary using Robert Spencer’s excellent research showing that Mohammad never existed.

(A current example of a DW propaganda piece is this one from today, where they claim that the German security chief is being fired for refuting the “well documented” case of migrant hunting in Chemnitz, which in fact has been clearly established as an ANTIFA staged and edited clip use by the Merkel government to quell protests against her globalist policies in Germany)

  1. It’s everywhere.
    Today CNN coverage of Iran is saying people in the streets are protesting Trump’s sanctions. It’s totally false. They’re protesting the regime.

    And yes, antisemitism and Swastikas are attributed to Far-Right although very few of these people will commit the deed. It is most often Muslims and/or Blacks as well as Socialists.

  2. De-Nazification is not a new subject, and Germans themselves worked with the Allies to provide it. So there is already a model for alleviating antisemitism.
    http://www.alliiertenmuseum.de/en/topics/denazification.html August 2 – The Potsdam Declaration lays out plans for cleansing German society of any Nazi influences. This was part of the four political principals for the occupation, known as the four “D”s: Denazification, Demilitarization, Democratization, and Decentralization.

    The sacking of the (in my not-so-humble opinion) nearly ONLY honest person in the entourage of Merkel, the security chief was planned and executed – like her fake retirement – by Merkel in totally hypocritical installments. He was – to take a word from Tommy Robinson – stitched up: Erika 2 Frau Merkel wants to stack the Verfassungsschutz with her kind (extreme left/green, stasi-trained, traiterous) – honest folk are too dangerous – not least in order to really get at the AfD (Alternative fuer Deutschland). And her what she hopes to be FINAL assault at this brave young party. They will, very soon, be “watched by the Verfassungsschutz” – that is the internal security surveillance you visit on terrorists. The decent sacked security chief would never have agreed to that.

    This tactic is as dirty as it is dangerous for the AfD – (something like asking “when have you stopped to beat your wife?”), but I hope they will prevail against the horrid Machine.

    One lovely prospect though is that Maassen (I dont have the sharp S on my dying keyboard), the sacked security chief, will perhaps enter Politics – so let me share my dream:
    He will join the AfD and become Chancellor – and Germany may yet survive. Yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy ! ahem…

    • Did you see the article about how the Brits are turning MI5 (actually DI5) loose on the UKIP? The British police state is turning real nasty.

  4. 1. “when have you stopped to beat your wife?”

    That is an impossible statement. That is to say, these words convey no meaning.

    2. “Why have you stopped to beat your wife?” is possible. In other words, “Why have you just or very recently stopped doing what you were doing or going where you were going in order to beat your wife, something that you’re either about to do or at this moment are engaged in?”

    3. “When did you stop to beat your wife?” is possible. “At what point did you stop doing what you were doing or going where you were going in order to beat your wife?”

    Compare this with:

    4. “When did you stop beating your wife?” “At what point in time”, in other words, “did you cease or desist from beating your wife (either habitually or as a one-off occurrence)?”
