Media Dishonesty: Interview Cut Short To Hide Truth About Racism/BLM in UK…

Comment: 

The above interview followed riots in London at end of June. It took a very different turn to what the interviewer, Adam Boulton, expected. Adam doesn’t hide his views on anything – he was openly anti-Brexit, for example, and it showed throughout his reports and interviews post-referendum result.  Now, he’s, once again, on message, not keen to challenge the popular media line about racism in the UK.  Mr Hurley’s factual account of what is going on is clearly not welcome at Sky News. Is anyone surprised at the way this interview was unceremoniously ended?   

The implications are very serious for a media which cannot be trusted.  If we suspect that we are not dealing with truthful reporters and interviewers, respect for journalism is lost.  Poll after poll shows that the public do not trust news outlets – while, at the same time, they seem to (in fact) believe what they are being fed by news outlets, print and broadcasting.  What is going on here?  What is the truth about fake news?

Very importantly, too, consider the fact that the points made by Kevin Hurley apply across society.  He highlights the normalcy of single-parent families; this is  a problem which is not exclusive to “black communities” and  which is having a detrimental effect on both the children raised in these families (generally speaking – obviously, there are exceptions) and in wider society. Again, is anyone surprised at the way this interview was unceremoniously ended? Why do those with media influence want to cover-up the truth about the dire (and often dangerous) state of everyday life in the UK?  

Name the Patron Saint of Snitching … 

From MSN – News…

If there’s one thing that runs to the heart of British culture, it’s being a stickler for rules and “the small print”. Oh, and we love snitching too, apparently.

In news that seems surprising, but then immediately isn’t, a police force says it has had a surge in calls from people reporting their neighbours for “going out for a second run”.

Government lockdown rules allow people to leave their homes to take one form of exercise a day. And Nick Adderley, from Northamptonshire Police [pictured below], has told the BBC that during this overstretched and stressful time his force has received “dozens and dozens” of calls about people allegedly ignoring the order.

Police now have the powers to fine anyone found to be flouting the law. But, to be honest, aren’t there better uses of everyone’s time? Such as dispersing big groups and, you know, dealing with serious crimes?

Adderley said:  We are getting calls from people who say ‘I think my neighbour is going out on a second run – I want you to come and arrest them’ We have had dozens and dozens of these calls.

To make matters even more ridiculous, the force has also been getting reports from people whose neighbours are gathering in their back gardens.

We won’t have police officers crashing through garden fences to check the ID of everyone who is there to see whether they live at the house or whether they should be self-isolating.

We wouldn’t want to discourage people from making us aware, but we have to set expectations. If people think we will be descending on these houses with blue lights, then we won’t.

But be under no illusion, we will be using these powers if necessary.

Ash Tuckley, who leads the force’s control room stressed the “need to exercise caution”. Pardon the pun.

One man who’s absolutely not happy about this news is Nigel Farage. He compared the UK to “east Germany” after learning the news that people were calling the police over these matters. 

But sorry Nige, at least this means that Brits are finally taking these regulations more seriously, which is a good thing. Though maybe people should refrain from calling the police unless it’s definitely, 100 per cent necessary.  

Comment:

Can you name any canonised saint who would be likely to call the police to report a neighbour for breaking these temporary rules, set by a secular Government, given that nobody seems to complain about real immorality in UK society?  Only a minority of people actively complain about the murder of unborn babies, and same-sex “marriage” is OK with the majority now, despite the majority in Scotland having voted against it – twice.   Seems that if the secular Government makes the rules, they must be kept – God’s laws, on the other hand, are expendable.   Is Nigel Farage right to argue that “We have become East Germany c.1985 overnight. Next thing children will be encouraged to report on their parents. ” [Twitter]. 

Would you report a neighbour in these circumstances?  Can you name a saint to support doing so?  

When is a Hate Crime NOT a Hate Crime? When it’s Anti-Catholic Hate!

LANARKSHIRE, Scotland, May 1, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) ― Scottish Catholics are shocked and worried after a recent bout of vandalism in and near the city of Glasgow.

On Saturday, April 27, anti-Catholic graffiti was found spray-painted on a bus shelter outside Holy Family Catholic Church in Mossend.

On Monday, April 29, vandals entered St. Simon Catholic Church in Glasgow
 and attacked the sanctuary, overturning candles and a shrine to Our Lady of Częstochowa, and breaking a statue.
[Ed: Archdiocese of Glasgow – Archbishop Tartaglia]

The anti-Catholic graffiti included the timeworn sentiment “F*** the Pope.” The local police said they would meet with the local Catholic diocese.

“Enquiries are ongoing into offensive graffiti painted on boarding near to a Catholic church in Mossend, Lanarkshire (…) ,” the Lanarkshire Police Division tweeted.

“The local policing team in Bellshill will meeting with local representatives from the Diocese of Motherwell with regard to this incident.”

Police in Glasgow stated that there is no evidence the attack on St. Simon’s, the principal place of worship for the city’s Polish community, was either motivated by sectarianism or a hate crime… [emphasis added – for obvious reasons!]

Catholic churches vandalised, anti-Catholic graffiti found, including the standard “F*** the Pope”, statue broken, candles overturned … but move along,  no hate crime here, nothing to see…

You just could not make this stuff up.  If this had been the place of worship of any other religious group in Scotland, it would have  been headline news for days, and it would most certainly have been categorised as  manifest hate crime.  

Since the Scottish State effectively sanctions hate crimes against Catholics by permitting the annual Orange Parade marches – not to mention dismissing attacks on Catholic churches like those reported above as NOT being hate crimes – it seems that there is really nothing to be done about these manifestations of anti-Catholic hatred.  So, should we simply accept them in humble submission as part of our cross, something to offer up?  Or does that come under the heading of “false charity”?  Should the bishops continue to accept that we are a soft target – or should they toughen up and demand justice – not least since they have a duty to protect the Blessed Sacrament; a broken statue is one thing but desecration of Tabernacles is quite another.  Share your ideas on possible ways to resolve Scotland’s anti-Catholic culture, since, clearly ecumenism is not working.
