BBC Defends Comedian Who ‘Joked’ About Acid Attacking Right-Wing Politicians

“It’s OK when we do it.”

Published

The BBC has defended a comedian who ‘joked’ about how she fantasized about acid attacking right-wing politicians.

As we reported earlier, Jo Brand appeared on a Radio 4 panel show called Heresy during which she said, “Certain unpleasant characters are being thrown to the fore, and they’re very, very easy to hate, and I’m kind of thinking, why bother with a milkshake when you could get some battery acid?”

The left, which normally rushes to prosecute, humiliate and ban people for offensive jokes, rushed to her defense.

This includes the BBC, which said that the jokes on the show are “deliberately provocative as the title implies” and they are “not intended to be taken seriously.”

This is the same corporation that fired radio host Danny Baker over a “racist” joke about the royal baby that wasn’t even intended to be racist.

One wonders how the BBC would react if a right-wing comic appeared on one of their shows and “joked” about acid attacking left-wing politicians.

I think the outcome may have been a little different.

“It’s OK when we do it.”

GOOD NEWS: ‘Woke’ Universities To Be Fined For Limiting Free Speech

The government will also instruct heritage charities, museums and art galleries to stop ‘airbrushing’ history at the behest of the woke mob

A pair of new government initiatives will see universities in the UK fined if colleges or student bodies attempt to shut down free speech on campuses, and heritage bodies sanctioned if they use funds to advance partisan political movements.

The Sunday Telegraph reported that the university measure is to be announced this week by the Education secretary Gavin Williamson, who has previously railed against the rise of ‘wokism’ and leftist cancel culture.

The report notes that “Colleges or student bodies that try to cancel, dismiss or demote people over their views will be sanctioned in a major Government escalation on the ‘war on woke’.”

Williamson’s effort will make it the duty of universities to promote free speech on campuses by allowing a broad spectrum of events and speakers, without hindrance.

The move will also see a ‘Free Speech Champion’ established on campuses as part of government’s regulatory Office for Students.

The role will be to ensure free speech isn’t impeded and that academic freedom is maintained, and to impose fines on establishments or student unions that restrict speech.

A government source told the Telegraph that “Unacceptable silencing and censoring on campuses is having a chilling effect and that is why we must strengthen free speech in higher education, by bolstering the existing legal duties and ensuring strong, robust action is taken if these are breached.”

In addition, the government will instruct heritage charities, museums and art galleries to stop ‘airbrushing’ history at the behest of the woke mob.

Culture secretary Oliver Dowden is expected to issue instructions to the National Trust, Historic England, the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Arts Council England, the National History Museum, the British Museum and the Imperial War Museum at a summit next week “to defend our culture and history from the noisy minority of activists constantly trying to do Britain down”.

The move comes after revelations that public funds are being used to pay for reviews that seek to link British heritage to ‘colonialism’ and ‘white supremacy’.

This is particularly the case in London, where the mayor Sadiq Khan has appointed a rogues gallery of woke partisans as a ‘task force’ to review whether statues and other landmarks in the city are ‘diverse enough’.

In a letter, Dowden stated “History is ridden with moral complexity and interpreting Britain’s past should not be an excuse to tell an overly-simplistic version of our national story, in which we damn the faults of previous generations whilst forgetting their many great achievements.”

“Purging uncomfortable elements of our past does nothing but damage our understanding of it,” Dowden also urged.

Responding to the government initiatives, Sir John Hayes, the chairman of the Common Sense Group of Conservative MPs said “It is absolutely right that the Government steps in to defend free speech. Without the ability to speak freely soon we will not have the ability to think freely.”

Hayes added that “universities ought to be places where ideas are to be a fulcrum for devising and testing ideas to be places of imaginings”, but noted that debate is being stifled by self appointed “thought police”.

recent study by leading education focused think tank Civitas found that free speech at the world’s leading universities is being eroded at an alarming rate owing to the rise of “cancel culture”.

The study found that within the past three years, more than 68 per cent of universities in the UK have seen free speech severely restricted, with academics unable to meaningfully discuss the nuances of issues such as race and gender.

It is now an everyday occurrence, even at distinguished universities such as Cambridge, to see ridiculous one sided ‘discussions’ led by panels of activists who all agree on one subject, such as Winston Churchill being worse than Hitler, while speakers who disagree, or just have an opinion that isn’t robustly ‘woke’ are prevented from appearing.

A recent national poll found that half of Britons agree that freedom of speech is under direct threat from cancel culture, with only 12% feeling that they can speak more freely than five years ago.

Twitter Ridiculed For Saying It Won’t Suspend Accounts On Orders of Indian Government Follow Due to “Free Expression”

Says it won’t take action against accounts that spread “misinformation,” despite using that justification to ban Trump.

Twitter faced ridicule after it resisted demands by the Indian government to suspend accounts for spreading “misinformation,” claiming that it cherished “free expression,” despite having removed multiple prominent accounts in the U.S. for “spreading misinformation.”

The Silicon Valley giant is in a heated dispute with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s administration, with the Indian government demanding it take action against over a thousand accounts it claims are “spreading misinformation” about the months-long farmers’ protests against new agricultural laws.

“The government has played hardball, sending Twitter a notice of non-compliance last week that threatens its executives with jail terms of up to seven years and the company with fines if it does not block the content,” reports Al Jazeera.

India claims the accounts, some of which are backed by Pakistan or are operated by alleged supporters of a separatist Sikh movement, are spreading fake news to destabilize the government.

Twitter responded by claiming it insists “tweets must flow,” before asserting that it wouldn’t take action against news outlets, politicians, activists and journalists.

“We have not taken any action on accounts that consist of news media entities, journalists, activists, and politicians,” said the company. “We will continue to advocate for the right of free expression on behalf of the people we serve, and are exploring options under Indian law.”

“Thank you for this – needed a good laugh,” responded Mike Cernovich.

Twitter’s explanation for refusing to remove the accounts rings hollow given that it has repeatedly deleted accounts belonging to journalists, news outlets and politicians in the United States for spreading “misinformation.”

Indeed, President Trump’s account was permanently suspended last month for that precise reason, with Twitter claiming Trump’s tweets would lead to real world violence.

Gateway Pundit editor Jim Hoft, along with a host of other conservatives, have also been banned by Twitter for allegedly spreading “misinformation” about election fraud.

Twitter’s justification for refusing to remove accounts at the behest of the Indian government proves once again that the company operates a double standard which deliberately targets conservatives for their political opinions.

Maybe Modi’s government should just accuse the offending accounts of posting pro-Trump memes and Twitter will delete them in a heartbeat.

AOC Calls For Mass Censorship After Being Caught Lying

The real agenda behind deplatforming revealed once again.

Published

on

AOC responded to being caught lying about what happened to her during the Capitol riot by demanding mass censorship.

Once again this all proves that Silicon Valley censorship has nothing to do with stopping ‘hate and harassment’ and everything to do with powerful people colluding with Big Tech to silence their critics.
