    Enoch Lives! Today,14/4/18, UK Terrorised By 1968 Echo? 


    I missed out on this story, the BBC of all things under fire from the left/liberal ruling class for daring to broadcast the words of a long-dead hero.

    I am therefore grateful to spiked-com for bringing this ‘controversy’ to my attention and accordingly, readily, accede to their editor’s request to pass on his comments on the demand by Britain’s Enemy Within to silence the voice of Enoch Powell.

    Please read it.

    While almost all of it is indisputable, I reserve my own right to comment at the end of what’s been written.

    0000

    To understand the new illiberalism, look no further than the hysteria over the BBC’s decision to broadcast Enoch Powell’s ‘Rivers of Blood’ speech on its 50th anniversary.

    No sooner had the Beeb said it would air a performance of Powell’s 1968 comments on immigration – with commentary and criticism, not on their own – than the cry went out that the corporation was ‘enabling’ racism.

    It would ‘normalise’ racial hatred. To broadcast this ‘sickening oratory’ would put ‘black and brown people’ at risk, said one observer. People will hear the speech and think it is a ‘call to arms’, said another.

    The broadcast must be scrapped, they insist.

    This borderline medieval desire to expunge 50-year-old comments, to memory-hole an old speech, perfectly captures the elitist contempt that motors demands for censorship. They see us, ordinary people, as animals-in-waiting, liable to be triggered to barbarism by certain words.

    Monkey see, monkey do: the misanthropic prejudice of those who insist that certain ideas and images be kept from the plebs. Oh the irony of their bemoaning Powell’s speech as dehumanising even as they dehumanise the British public.

    Like this email? Forward it to a friend.

    I like it, so you have it now, and the only dissent I’d offer is that description of the evil afflicting Britain is ‘illiberalism.’

    Liberalism is the cancer, democracy the cure.

    So to Hell with Lord Adonis, the Brexit-bashing Socialist bore, who has asked media regulator Ofcom to stop the broadcast, calling it “incendiary and racist.”

    BBC plan to air Enoch Powell’s ‘rivers of blood’ speech sparks fury

    That call to stomp free speech is a quote from The Sun. Adonis may, is, an SOB but he’s no fool. He understands perfectly that to hear the voice of sanity is to start thinking.

    Inevitably the worst intolerance is found in the Guardian and the Independent.

    .

    The BBC must withdraw its dangerous Rivers of Blood broadcast …

    But let’s not pretend the BBC has redeemed itself in the eyes of patriots.

    As the spiked writer says, the mandarins of Broadcasting House do not trust the British people (who are forced by the state to fund its bias ) to decide for themselves on the merits of Enoch’s words…

    =

    =

    …which, in their inimitable Pravdoid style, they have characterised as –

    ‘the infamous speech!’

     

    in·fa·mous

    …without an accompaniment of simpering, or sneering, or downright disrespect for facts.

    SO…

    Check out your BBC Radio Four schedule today, tune in, and DO turn a deaf ear to the sour sibillants providing the comrades’ commentary.

    Judge that speech for yourselves and I bet you’ll feel as proud and happy as we did, who heard it then, when Enoch gave us hope.

      Why do we keep reading about that Lord Adonis?
      He is a typical NGO type, always a leftist, Lib Dem then Labour then into all kinds of ‘public sector’ do-goody groups, but I like best what Ian Duncan Smith said about him.
      “It’s a bit rich for him to pontificate on what he calls populism, but what most would refer to as democracy, when he himself has never been elected by a public vote. He has instead relied on preferment from others.”

      I would have put it more like he never had a real job, just one cushy hanger-on spot after another.

      The BBC will never reform itself and never give the British the fair reporting they deserve.
      So the British should not be forced by Theresa May to pay the BBC salaries when the journalism is so bad.
      We too have the same kind of problem, and when i say that, you can try to guess where I am.
      I could be in so many countries like France, Germany and Austria because the same problem exists there.

    An Appeal To Brits – Tell Off This Disgraceful ‘His Grace!’ 


    I missed this news from last month but it so incenses me that I am issuing a belated but impassioned plea to Brit readers to send an email.

    I refer to the disputed plaque that was planned to honour the late Enoch Powell, the patriotic hero who should have been Prime Minister.

    =

    =

    Most British readers may already know of the row in Wolverhampton, but I quote from the local newspaper.

    the Wolverhampton Civic and Historical Society revealed it had received an application for a plaque for Powell, who was a Tory MP in the city for 24 years.

    For non-UK readers these little blue plaques are to be found all over the country…

    =

    Gambar terkait

    ===

    ….commemorating famous folk who lived, worked, were born or died at the sites the plaques are installed.

    Unfortunately, the newspaper repeats the infamous misquote of Powell’s most famous speech.

    ...Powell’s notorious Rivers of Blood speech in 1968, in which he warned of the dangers of mass immigration.

    I remedied this previously, some years ago.


    • Powell, the greatest PM the UK never had, used no such phrase. Its constant repetition by journalists (who undoubtedly know they are lying) indicates as best as anything could the poisonous dishonesty that permeates the ‘British’ media.
    • Enoch quoted the ancient Sybilline prophecy which foresaw the waters of Rome’s River Tiber foaming blood-red,  Rome entering a terrible time of troubles.
    • And by God he was spot on.
    • UK MultiCult Poll – It All Depends! 

    ———————

    Needless to say, while decent people made their voices heard…Nigel Hastilow: Enoch Powell’s legacy much more than one speech – of course he should have a plaque …a number of worthless leftist wasters objected childishly to honouring the patriot, as they would to any patriot getting recognition of that sort.

    But disgustingly, they were joined His Disgraceful Grace, the Bishop of Wolverhampton, a freaky far-left shrill named Clive Gregory, who warned that erecting a plaque for Powell would be tantamount to ‘honouring his racist views’, 

    Enoch Powell’s views damned well SHOULD be honoured. If you’re not happy with that short sentence, you’re on the wrong blog-site.

    Interestingly, the same local newspaper ran a poll, and got 20,000 responses, with a SEVENTY PERCENT approval rating for the plaque.

    A decision will be taken by the historical society in July, it seems…                                                               Hasil gambar untuk wolverhampton historical society

    … so let’s all of us send them polite, pleasant emails email: wchs@mail.com  encouraging them to put up the Powell plaque!

    BUT…let’s also email that dog-collared grotesque and tell him exactly what we think of him.

    EMAIL bishop.wolverhampton@lichfield.anglican.org

    No threats, or coarse insults, please.

    That just causes problems.

    But a candid critique of anti-patriotic prelates would not go amiss!

    Liar Juncker Disses War-Dead – Damn The Swine!

    But more recently, every one of my off-spring’s grandparents, each in their own way, in different parts of the world, played a valuable part against the last major effort to create a European Union.

    Today’s EUSSR is very much Fourth Reich in the making, as indeed its founding fathers devoutly desired.

    Actually, the link on which I found Juncker’s quote also has some very nice comments about him and his fellow-commissars, like this –

    But rather than continue with this, here are a few telling words from the greatest prime minister Britain never had.

    We are taunted—by the French, by the Italians, by the Spaniards—for refusing to worship at the shrine of a common government superimposed upon them all… where were the European unity merchants in 1940?

    I will tell you. They were either writhing under a hideous oppression or they were aiding and abetting that oppression.

    Lucky for Europe that Britain was alone in 1940.

    Schulz? Scheisse! Enoch Was Right! Strasbourg Is NO Parliament! 


    Having sat – and stood for standing ovations – among audiences which heard Enoch Powell in person, back in the day, I distinctly recall him denouncing the talking-shop in Strasbourg as being anything BUT a parliament.

    enoch-powell-was-right-national-front-union-jack1

    But since then, it has become not so much a talking-shop as a shrine, to oligarchy, the citadel of the elite, where contempt for the common people is dogma.

    And now its current commissar-in-chief has issued an authoritarian edict, to suppress those brave patriots elected to its ranks who seek to reassure those common people that not everyone within those opulent walls will sit silent where treason reigns.

    ———-

    ————-

    The president of the European Parliament wants an effective broadcasting ban on MEPs who wave placards in debates, amid fears that the Strasbourg assembly is becoming a “circus.”

    Every circus needs a contingent of clowns and we’ve seen and heard the cultural marxist variety time and again.  But Martin Schulz’s latest diktat is no laughing matter. 

    ——————-

    European Commission's President Jean-Claude Juncker (L) kisses the forehead of President of the European Parliament Martin Schulz, before his State of the Union address to the European Parliament in Strasbourg, eastern France, on September 9, 2015. Juncker urged European Union (EU) states on September 9 to take "bold" action, as he unveiled a major plan for dealing with Europe's worst refugee crisis since World War II. "Now is not the time to take fright, it is time for bold determined action for the European Union," Juncker said. AFP PHOTO / FREDERICK FLORINFREDERICK FLORIN/AFP/Getty Images

    No wonder Liar Juncker made  such a slobbering show of his approval for the babbling Commissar Schulz!

      No sooner read than done, sir. “I told ’em, Oldham” was the tv advert slogan for the Oldham brand of car battery. Around 1960, you’re right.
      Sad to inform you that the Oldham batteries are no more.
      As for Oldham, the place, the election will probably leave it in Labour hands. English people are outnumbered there and you’ll always get the bad element among the English, social workers, college teachers, that kind, who vote any way except a pro-British way.
      But UKIP ought to get the majority of British votes.

    I heard Enoch Powell speak, more than once. Back in 1968, I was one of thousands who marched in protest at his dismissal from the Shadow Cabinet by that effete organ-fiddler Heath.

    I once had the honour to shake his hand. That was after a meeting where I had asked him to leave the Tories and start a new party for patriots. I suppose we could have called it UKIP!

    enoch-powell-was-right-national-front-union-jack1 He was right, although not about everything.

    I also attended his memorial service at Westminster.

    It was therefore with no small degree of fury that I read of the attempt by some prattling mitred twat to smear his name with unsubstantiated allegations of ‘satanist sex activity.’

    I don’t expect much of the modern churches, as a rule. We had that rotten priest in Ulster, describing Gerry Adams as ‘a man sent by God.’ A murder-gang-leader? Who covered for a child-molestor?

    ================

    Terror Gang Leader Adams, Complicit in Child Molesting – ‘A Man Sent by God?’ 

    Yet the vile old swine who praised the fiend was not at once excommunicated. Nor was he denied his church’s funeral rites when he died and went to whichever fiery place awaited him.

    Neither is Adams excommunicated, which exposes the Catholic Church on the Emerald Isle as spiritually bankrupt, a moral midden.

    Nor is the Church of England notably more respectable, as long as it harbours dastards like that bishop who defamed a dead statesman, a man still idolised by millions.

    But I held my fire – it would not be long before the episcopal slander was rebutted by those with a wider circulation than I.

    Sure enough, Simon Heffer in the Mail has demolished the pusillanimous prelate’s smear-mongering, quite finely. If you have not read the rebuttal, there’s the link at the foot of our page. It’s top-notch.

    BBC-bias-alert

    And more, because, once again, the BBC is outed as an agency of leftist lies, though in this case they were so utterly mendacious that they had to issue a humiliating apology. 

    In 1998, just after Enoch died, the BBC broadcast a programme in which they railed at Enoch for his hypocrisy. They said this scourge of mass immigration had visited the West Indies in 1953 to recruit black labour for the NHS.

    I was told of the story before the programme was broadcast and informed its researcher that Enoch had never been to the West Indies in his life. I was told, effectively, that I was lying, and it was broadcast.

    —————-

    The allegations are a monstrous lie. That the lie appears to have been retailed by a priest is beyond contempt, writes Simon Heffer

    A black clergywoman, then resident in London, talked at length of Enoch having recruited her as a nurse. The story was rubbish.

    Detailed investigation by the BBC complaints department found that the woman had been recruited after a visit to her island by Jack Profumo, not Enoch Powell at all, and the Corporation was forced to make a grovelling on-air apology in peak time. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3017219/SIMON-HEFFER-allegations-against-Enoch-Powell-monstrous-lie-contempt.html

    Yup!

    The same BBC which declared itself neutral while British servicemen and women were fighting and dying in the Falkland War.

    The same BBC which cooks the books on immigration. Will the BBC EVER Be Pro-British? 

    The same BBC which cast its charter to the winds by acting as Harold Wilson’s Pravda during the Rhodesian sell-out.

    Harold Wilson used the BBC World Service to promulgate false information about Ian Smith. A letter in the PRO from the Rhodesia Ministerial Committee to the Prime Minister advised that Ian Smith should be portrayed as a weak unreliable figure. Note that the BBC’s World Service, although fully financed by the government, is subject to the same “public service” conditions as the Home Services…

    ….Another letter from the Commonwealth office dated 25th May 1967 refers to a request by the PM to be shown fresh guidance before it was sent to the BBC. The official said; “I am afraid this guidance has gone; in accordance with our usual practice it was given orally and confidentially to the Head of their African Service. It was suggested to the BBC, we should continue as in the past to make Mr Smith appear incapable of making up his own mind. He should be portrayed as evasive, weak and vacillating. Full agreement was reached with the BBC and the guidance has already been reflected in the content of broadcasts.”…-

    • propaganda2

    This campaign went on for two years. A letter from the BBC to the Civil Service asks for permission to discontinue the campaign because of staffing problems. The BBC man in charge, presumably responsible for continuously breaking his obligations under the Royal Charter, was being promoted.

    These letters are probably the only official documents available which prove without any doubt that the BBC has been used by the government of the day to broadcast government propaganda. Stop BBC Bias – BBC Charter Review
