This week was supposed to be a huge week for far-left Hope Not Hate: they will launch their annual “State of the Far Right” report. Simultaneously they had planned for their puppets at the BBC to screen a BBC Panorama “documentary” which they were involved in directing (something that shouldn’t happen). Tommy Robinson’s #Panodrama has already stoped this.
Fortunately best selling author Tommy Robinson managed to send people undercover to reveal the journalistic malpractice at BBC Panorama. This will be fully revealed in his Panodrama documentary outside BBC’s offices in Manchester on 23rd of February. This has also meant the BBC will no longer be able to broadcast a project they’ve been working on for months because of a pre-emptive legal threat from Tommy’s lawyers. In advance of them even completing their TV “documentary” working title: “Tommy Take Down”, they’ve agreed not to showing it this month.
Nevertheless, in the coming days you’re going to see dozens of mainstream UK Press articles based on a report compiled by far-left communists at Hope Not Hate, the UK’s junior version of America’s widely discredited far-left Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). Both organisations regularly issue reports which are riddled with abysmal research, lies and journalistic malpractice. They both sit at the heart of networks funded by the largest far-left benefactors such as George Soros: his organisations directly quote from these two often.
The first I’ve come across is by Mark Townsend in the far-left Guardian. He is the “Home affairs editor of the Observer” and “Press Awards news reporter of the year.”. It would appear his skilz extend all the way to re-writing press releases and putting out hagiographic reports about far-left Hope Not Hate. In his piece from Saturday 16th Feb there isn’t a single word or quote to challenge Hope Not Hate.
These reports always centre on a “poll”
A survey of UK attitudes, commissioned by anti-fascist group Hope not Hate, found that 68% of people felt there was not a political party that represented them, up from 61% when the same question was posed last July.
By contrast, the reach of far-right personalities can be large, with nearly four in 10 revealing that they had watched or heard one of Tommy Robinson’s videos on social media, although only 6% of Britons have a positive view of the former English Defence League (EDL) leader, real name Stephen Yaxley-Lennon.
“We are facing a crisis of growing political mistrust across all sections of the population, with no figure able to galvanise the support they need to overcome this disconnect,” said Nick Lowles, chief executive of Hope not Hate. He added: “A mistrust in political representatives adds potency to a mix of unmet expectations, broken promises, and possible further decline and anger.”Source: Disillusioned Britons turn to far-right ‘popular front’
This line “6% of Britons have a positive view of” Tommy Robinson is a good example of how these snakes work. If the full report reveals the interview questions I’m sure we’ll find this 6% comes from a question such as “what is your view on far-right convicted fraudster, Tommy Robinson” positive, neutral, negative. It remains to be seen what the size of the neutral is. Regardless, the framing of the question will have been negative, it will have come following other negative questions and on top of a decade of demonising Tommy in the media.
As you see these reports pop up this week, just remember what the aim here is. Hope Not Hate have the ear of government, the Police and all the elite organs of state. They are pushing to get Tommy Robinson banned from Facebook, his last significant social media presence and one that has grown massively. They want his sources of funds and access to fundraising from the people cut off (while they remain free to gather funds from billionaires and even government contracts).
If you see an article attacking Tommy and trying to push this discredited far-right explosion narrative, give it the contempt it deserves and, if you can, leave a comment explaining how you feel.
