Right at the end of the post is my special gift: a remastered, multi-camera version of Kelly Day singing How they Rule Ya with enhanced audio, but first….
I made a short podcast and video based on the reactions to Panodrama on Sunday. I wanted to add a few videos that really show what Tommy’s crowd was like and the absolute insanity of the far-left, Hope not Hate inspired zombies who turned out to oppose him. First up is Avi Yemeni’s great little video.
I also enjoyed the contrasts in Godless Spellcheker’s video between Tommy Robinson supporters who can articulate real, solid grievances and reasons for attending vs the so called anti-fascists who are uniformly clueless.
This was sent to me concerning the Godless Spellchecker’s video:
It is nominally impartial, but captures the bigotry and misinformation emanating from the left; at 3.30 an idiot declares of ‘the fascists’, “the first people they go for are the socialists and the trade unionists” – clearly not familiar with the National Socialists – before “it ends up with the gas chambers and the extermination camps.” This appropriation of anti-Semitism, by people aligned with Labour and Momentum who actually perpetrate it, is a worrying recent development. Then at 7.00, a young moron shows his opposition to fascism by insisting that Tommy Robinson “is a terrorist and his band of fascists should be… locked up and taken off our streets”. I saw these people, waving Communist Party flags, and would have spoken to them myself but I’m not confident I would have kept my temper. The other video I’ve watched this morning also makes the insupportable and possibly slanderous link between Tommy Robinson and anti-Semitism (like you, I’m not keen on real Nazis and tend to be reasonably good at spotting them; nothing I’ve ever heard or seen of Tommy suggests he is – didn’t he recently declare himself a Zionist?!).
If you’re looking for a good, straight, written piece on Panodrama and its implications for the UK’s state broadcaster, James Delingpole has provided an excellent piece in Breitbart:
Did you see that shocking BBC Panorama documentary about the bullying, Soros-funded, far-left, anti-freedom of speech propaganda group currently touring British schools with the Government’s approval, turning kids into brainwashed progressives who believe that “Islamophobia” is a bigger threat than radical Islam?
No. And you never will.
That’s because instead of holding these far left thugs to account, the BBC considers them to be allies, fellow travellers, kindred spirits. Hence the disgraceful allegations that the BBC’s flagship documentary series Panorama got in bed with one such organisation — HOPE Not Hate — in order to carry out a hit job on Tommy Robinson.Delingpole: Has Tommy Robinson Exposed the BBC’s Dangerous, Far-Left Bias?
Next on the parade of hate from the far-left are these tweets from blue tick verified Guardian writer, Hannah Jane Parkinson. She, obviously, has never spent much time studying Tommy Robinson but she can say, as an absolute FACT that Tommy is an “antisemite”. Obviously Jews who have spent time with Tommy, such as Avi Yemeni or myself are unable to detect Tommy’s fictional Jew hatred as well as Hannah. There’s a screenshot, obviously, because she may well realise that having stated something as a “fact” she has no defence that she was stating her opinion.
If her point was that Tommy doesn’t like associating with Jews or music by Jewish authors then this reply tweet rather sums up her insanity.
You can’t fix stupid but you can sue for libel.
The BBC’s official response from Panorama is worth including:
Obviously, like all of the far-let, they’re completely obsessed with “real name blah blah blah” and they’re still claiming that one day they’ll broadcast a Panorama about Tommy Robinson. That may be, but I’ll bet with anyone who want to that nothing which features anything from this Hope not Hate production will come out in the next 3 months. They may try again, but this production and these methods are burned.
This is going to drag on because The BBC doesn’t know when to throw their hand in and fold. Good. It will be an open sore we can pick at.
A dishonourable mention also goes to this MEP nobody’s ever heard of who also trotted out the usual insane ramblings of far-left zombies who’ve never studied Tommy Robinson and will believe any propaganda that Hope not Hate put out.
And after that ugliness we’ll end with some beauty! How They Rule Ya (Yes, Hannah, it’s a version of Hallelujah by the Jew (((Leonard Cohen))) we all know that. Performed by Kelly Day from Canada. This is my own video mash up from two sources and with a re-mixing of the sound for a bit more presence and liveliness!
