Lockdown & Loss of Freedom – Why the Sinister Silence from the Media?

Comment: 

Clearly, the mainstream media in both the UK and the USA has bought into the Government(s) message, which is that we’re all obeying the scientists/medical experts.  On other threads, we’ve discussed the fact that not all scientists and doctors agree but those who don’t agree are kept well away from the microphones and TV studios.  We are getting one message only from people programmed to repeat it and not question it.  Given the examples in the Tucker Carlson video above, which reflect what is happening here in the UK, we need to find a way of challenging the silence of the mainstream media which is, surely, sinister by any standard.  That no-one is questioning the loss of our freedoms, in this unique situation, is definitely sinister.  

Remember, this is primarily a religious question – as is everything to do with human life, in fact.  If there is no-one in the media questioning the danger of the nation (if not the entire world) sleep-walking into totalitarianism, then our churches will be closed forever. And there will be no need to speculate on whether we are now suffering a chastisement – it will be indisputably the case.   

The opportunity for the voice of the public to be heard is limited, but it is possible to make some level of protest through, for example, certain radio programmes.  The LBC (Leading the British Conversation) phone-in shows allow members of the public to broadcast their views.  Click here and then check out the shows, pick the one you think might be worth a  try, and dial the number as soon as possible after the show goes on air. 

Thus, you may do some simple Catholic Action by telephone, using, perhaps some of the facts on our other threads, to make a point – notably The Truth About The Lockdown

Entrust your efforts to Our Lady, in this her special month, and who knows what good might come of it.  Whatever, it’s worth reflecting on the strange phenomenon of a media wholly silent on the loss of our civil liberties, when we would normally expect them to be interrogating politicians, doctors and the police to hold them to account for their role in instituting and applying the draconian measures designed to keep us in our homes – perhaps indefinitely. 

Is the UK no longer free? 

The treatment of Tommy Robinson, coupled with the contrived outrage over Boris Johnson’s ‘burka’ remarks this week, do beg the question: is Tucker Carlson right to question whether, in fact, the UK really is a free land?   And why are the Catholic bishops not asking the same question?

Latest PC Madness: Ask Baby’s Consent Before Changing Nappy

Original video clip, of an Australian news report, has been removed, marked “unavailable” so, below, a separate interview, on the same topic, from breakfast show, Good Morning Britain (GMB)

The Australian “expert” featured at one point in the above video, is advocating this nonsense supposedly to end the problem of people touching others without consent.  The whole permissive culture is now being re-examined, but instead of looking at obvious solutions, this sort of craziness is being considered instead.  I had to double-check my calendar to make sure it wasn’t an April Fool joke but no, it’s just another fool posing as an “expert”, talking baloney.  You have to laugh, though – I couldn’t keep a straight face, so enjoy the interview. Then ask yourself how we might change  the culture of western society, where sexual harassment of one kind or another is now endemic. 

I mean, what about returning to the custom of NOT cohabiting before marriage, of courteous courtships, where the girl had a deadline to meet to return to the parental home, or, perhaps even return to an even earlier period when chaperoned courtships were the norm. Beats asking babies for permission to change their nappies, surely?  

Or do you have a better idea? How can we put an end to the unsavoury sexualised culture in which we currently live? 

O, and isn’t it time (long overdue) that the Bishops and priests spoke out about this PC madness?  Why are they not doing so?  They seem oblivious to the whole PC craziness.  Can you imagine the scandal if even one of them subscribed to the madness spouted by this Australian “expert”?

Feminism: Irrational & Un-Christian?

With monotonous regularity, the print and broadcasting news outlets across the UK are leading with allegations of sexual harassment of women.  Today’s news broadcasts and newspapers are no exception, devoting air-time and front pages to publishing this latest scandal 

Seems there’s hardly a decent male anywhere to be found. The presumption now is, clearly, “guilty until proven innocent” – that’s becoming more and more clear.  For a touch of balance, check out the entirely false allegation made against Tucker Carlson, popular American broadcaster, whose entire life and career was almost destroyed by a woman he’d never even met. 

Comment:

Has the feminist movement gone too far?  Are radical feminists, in fact, completely irrational women,  driven by a hatred of men and masculinity?  Why are there apparently no women in the media industry speaking out against radical feminism?  Female news anchors interviewing (the very few) women who signal some reservations about the current frenzy, react quickly and with annoyance, as if they want the allegations to be true.  What’s going on – should men be presumed guilty until proven innocent?  If so, does that apply across the board to all crimes, or merely to allegations of a sexual nature?

Vegas Massacre: Guns Not The Cause…

Isn’t it refreshing to hear some honest discussion about the real cause, the root cause of the change in society – in this case, specifically the increased violence in the U.S.A… That it is the human condition, fallen human nature that is to blame, not guns per se…  And isn’t it good to see politicians being grilled – really grilled – by a news anchor, compared to the supine approach of  UK journalists?  

Our heartfelt sympathy goes to the injured and relatives of the dead, while we pray for the repose of the souls of all those who lost their lives in this senseless  attack. May they rest in peace…
