Purely by chance, whilst pondering what to turn my hand to next, I tuned into France 24 yesterday, and caught part of their ‘Debate.’
Like the dashing pirate captains played by Errol Flynn in one of those good old 1930s black and white movies, UKIP’s Tim Akers MEP was on heroic form, en garde on the Calais Crimmigrant Crisis, a lone battler for truth against a trio of pinkos!
Tim Akers MEP
But we’ll get to that towards the bottom of the age.
Firstly, let’s focus on how France 24 has little grasp of fair play.
Its hourly news programme last night provided a platform for a pro-crimmigrant extremist named Caroline Gregory, who turns out to be…
Gregory, whose stellar career as a ‘writer’ includes propaganda in the unrepentant communist
Morning Star http://www.morningstaronline.co.uk/a-8f67-Worse-than-after-WWII
NB The paper’s editorial line remains anchored in the political programme of the Communist Party of Britain but it offers a broad left perspective on political, industrial and international issues. The Daily Worker was renamed the Morning Star in 1966
…part of something called ‘Calais Action.’
This shrill creature not only blamed Britain and France for the Jungle (true, but only in the sense that the French allowed illegal aliens to start and steadily expand their squalorous settlement, and Britain didn’t urge them to evict the brutes)
-Are these ‘youngsters’ now part of Amber’s Army?’
–Most men in theCalais camp ‘aren’t refugees’–
But what Gregory meant was a lack of sufficient appeasement of the lying trouble-makers’ demand to go country-shopping across the Channel!
She proceeded to tell a bare-faced lie.
Eagerly incited by the news anchor’s invitation to ‘share some stories that touched you.’
Gregory responded by saying that initially she’d ‘expected some refugees and some economic migrants,’ but that she soon discovered “they ARE refugees.”
No fact-checking nonsense for France 24!
Her sympathetic host said not a word to refute this ignorant drivel!
And of course nobody with an opposing view had been invited along to contradict her hogwash.
Soon after that they had some leftist journo with an Irish accent talking more nonsense, about the plight of the Jungle horde, the position that they find themselves in, as if they hadn’t chosen to make the long trek to reach Calais through various safe countries, where, if they were REAL ‘refugees,’ they’d have stopped their triumphalist march.
The Pravda-esque news host egged him on too, specifically echoing Red Gregory’s dismissal of the obvious fact that there were loads of economic migrants in Calais.
“…they are refugees, and they’ve got the scars to prove it…,‘ he sighed, as if that were a statement of fact, rather than a gross misrepresentation of the realities, viz. –
A lot of the males have indeed got scars – from knife-fights, you turncoat twit! Or from criminal forays into the night, attacking motorists on the highways.…
And the females? How many of them carry scars, wounds and bruises, from being raped by savage male ‘refugees!’–Calais Women ‘Take Turns Staying Awake In Case Someone Attacks!’
It’s disgraceful, he rambled on, dissing protests by decent folk who don’t want their society blighted by aliens transported from the rape-zone to small French towns and villages !
The leftist creepoid was so blatantly pro-crimmigrant I decided to check him out.
Owen the Pro-Crimmigrant
Name’s Mark Owen, a maestro of hypocrisy, witness what he boldly declared, when France 24 got started ten years ago –
We’ll deal with the story impartially, give it straight and hopefully we’ll deliver a good product that people want to watch.”–http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/6212138.stm
When that yarn fell by the wayside, we don’t know, or if he ever meant a word of it. He clearly found it impossible to keep his personal left-lib prejudice out of any news programme.
Nothing new about this, either.
When Newt Gingrich made the unremarkable observation, after the Paris terror attacks in November last year, that, if enough of the victims had been packing heat, the Islamist vermin who committed the atrocity might have found their evil mission harder to complete, Owen sloughed off any pretence of objective journalism.
“It’s funny how (sigh) people will very distastefully use this kind of situation to express their own political hobbyhorse. Newt Gingrich, shame on you.”
For that outrageous selective indignation, Owen was lauded by leftists around the world – our quote comes from the rabid www.liberalamerica.org/
However, at least on their ‘Debate’ programme, France 24 had one voice representing normal people’s opinions, none other than the guy at the top of our page, no, not Errol Flynn, but UKIP’s Tim Akers, who did a fine job =
- despite the fact that France34 had rigged the show, usual F24 bias, three leftists to one patriot.
- Tim easily parried the feeble thrusts from a bint in an appropriately red dress, who maintained that immigration and housing were not linked problems – like, duh, where do migrants live, in trees?
- But he got into truly fine form when an obnoxious French dork described Tim as ‘the racist guy.’
- Since race and colour hadn’t even been mentioned, the UKIP champion requested an apology for the slur, which wasn’t forthcoming.
- But his counter-punch, addressing Le Dorq as an ‘arrogant elitist,’ was brilliant!
- Even France 24 must realise that it makes for better TV if there’s a genuinely fair selection of views around the table.
- Let’s hope they shape up in future!
