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.”

German Woman Married to African Migrant Spends 3 Hours a Day on Facebook Combating “Hate Speech”

“Being a couple here in this still very white Germany, we are exposed”.

Published

A German woman who is married to an African migrant says she is trying to make Facebook a “nicer place” by spending 3 hours a day moderating comments for “hate speech”.

“It’s 7:30 in Berlin, and Nina’s alarm clock is going off. Before getting up and making breakfast for her 13-month-old daughter, who is sleeping in the next room, she reaches for her phone,” reports BBC News.

Nina is part of “an international movement working to find and combat hate speech” because she cannot imagine her child “being grown up and reading all those things on Facebook”.

Nina, who lives in Berlin with her Ugandan husband, told the BBC, “Being a couple here in this still very white Germany, we are exposed.”

She works with a group called #IAmHere which seeks to identify “conversations dominated by extremism” and in response “post facts and alternative viewpoints to balance out hate.”

The group already has over 45,000 members and addresses “racist, misogynistic or homophobic comments” with the help of Facebook, which in turn provides the group with free advertising credits to boost their message (while banning conservatives and claiming they are not politically partisan).

Nina says the bulk of her work involves refuting “hate” directed towards “asylum seekers or climate change protests”.

Not all heroes wear capes.

Vox Once Gave Platform to YouTube Comic Who Told Gays “Kill Yourself”

“It’s OK when we do it”.

Published

on

Vox – the company that led the effort to ban Steven Crowder over his use of homophobic language – previously gave a platform to Filthy Frank, who produced a satirical YouTube video in which he sang the words, “you’re a giant f*ggot and you should kill yourself.”

Oh, the foul stench of hypocrisy.

Last week, Crowder has his channel de-monetized by YouTube after Vox’s Carlos Maza accused the comedian of using gay slurs against him, despite Maza using some of the same slurs against himself in previous comments.

This led to the #VoxAdPocalypse, with leftist outrage mobs pressuring YouTube to delete or de-monetize thousands of videos and channels which featured controversial material. The collateral damage even took out some historical archive channels, prompting educators to complain that they had been censored for “hatemongering”.

However, Vox’s disdain for homophobic language was noticeably absent when they gave Filthy Frank a pass during a 2017 profile video which amassed almost 3 million views, allowing his fans to make the argument that offensive and politically incorrect language was OK because Filthy Frank is just a comedy character.

“Filthy Frank pulls no punches and even openly says the word “faggot” without bleeping it,” writes Brandon Morse. “In one video, he comedically apologized — much like Crowder did — for saying certain things, especially against the LGBT community. This video ended with a song with the lyrics “… you’re gay now / you’re a giant faggot and you should kill yourself.”

“It should be striking everyone as weird that Vox was only too happy to celebrate comedic videos featuring a person encouraging gay people to kill themselves just two years ago. Suddenly it can’t help but grasp at its pearls at the mere suggestion that someone is “queer,” he adds.

As ever with the left, the motto always seems to be, “It’s OK when we do it.”

NY Times Hit Piece Blamed Muslim Immigrant for ‘Radicalizing’ YouTube Viewer Into Hating Muslim Immigrants

Kevin Roose’s smear job continues to unravel.

Published

on

The New York Times hit piece that blamed right-wing YouTubers for radicalizing Caleb Cain into hating “Muslim immigrants” included as one of its targets a Muslim immigrant.

Yes, really.

According to Kevin Roose’s NY Times piece, Cain watched videos that “convinced him that Western civilization was under threat from Muslim immigrants”.

Three of those videos were produced by Mimi Al-Laham, a Muslim immigrant living in Australia.

“I am a Muslim immigrant, so the writer of this article Kevin Roose is implying that I somehow caused Caleb to hate myself,” said Al-Laham.

“How such videos could have contributed towards Caleb hating Muslim immigrants makes no sense unless the author Kevin Roose is implying that the very sight of a Muslim immigrant like myself could cause hatred,” she added.

Al-Laham reached out to Cain, who acknowledged that her videos played no role in ‘radicalizing’ him or making him hate Muslim immigrants.

This absurd contradiction illustrates how the article was intended as a broad effort to smear as many dissident voices as possible in an attempt to pressure YouTube into deplatforming them.

Syrian Girl’s content is primarily focused on opposing foreign interventionism in Syria, which led to Islamic jihadists being trained and armed by the west – something that the New York Times promoted at every turn.

As we highlight in the video below, the entire premise of the article – that Cain was radicalized by YouTube videos into becoming ‘Alt-Right’ – is completely undermined by the fact that Cain admits he was never ‘Alt-Right’.

In reality, YouTube’s algorithm eventually led to Cain watching videos with a left-wing bias, meaning that if anything he was radicalized to become a leftist.
