    Anti-GOP Hate-Rant? From UK Journo AND US General? 

    Few people trust the media…

    ….but until recently most people would expect higher standards from generals, who are expected to avoid partisan politics.


    Not so much  maybe..

    Michael Hayden, CIA official portrait.jpg

    Hayden – BTW, he serves on the board of the Atlantic Council – predictable, yeah?

    General Michael Hayden,the former head of the CIA and NSA, called the Republican Party the most “dangerous” group around – worse than Islamic extremists or other radicals.

    Financial Times Associate Editor Edward Luce tweeted:

    “I’ve covered extremism and violent ideologies around the world over my career.


    “Have never come across a political force more nihilistic, dangerous & contemptible than today’s Republicans.

    “Nothing close.”

    That’s hate speech…

    …for sure.


    Hayden responded: “I agree.”

      So an American political party, elected to nearly half the seats in the Senate and not far from half the seats in the House is ‘dangerous and contemptible? ‘

      The millions of Americans who voted for them, are they dangerous and contemptible too?
      This Luce an aristo like Cornwallis, who underestimated us revolting colonists? Who cares?
      It’s General Hayden that angers me, and what worries me is how many of the senior ranks favored by Biden share his dislike of his own fellow-Americans.

    Nutmeg’s Rant, Now Media ‘Gleichschaltung?’ UK Editors ‘MUST’ Conform! 

    Let’s skip the chunk of garbage lodged by EU Observer below their headline….

    EU fears death of free media in eastern Europe

    …but feel free to read it if you wish, subject to a mental-health warning….

    Little Russophobe Rettmann Rants Rabidly, Again! 

    Rettmann-Watch – EUObs Pinko Hack Caught In MORE Bias Bleats

    Little Red Rettmann

    More Bias! EUObs Headline – Poles’ New Leader ‘Worse!’ 

    Little Red Rettmann Rants Again! 

    ….for it’s written by Little Red Rettmann!

    Therefore we know, before we start, that this emigre Pole will wield his pen to slash at his native land and of course Hungary, and other countries where media are not colonised and controlled by his think-alikes.

    But it’s just the sheer stupidity of the headline, about the ‘death of free media in Eastern Europe?


    What about what this very week we heard in Britain, a massive threat against media freedom in the UK, issued by the doyenne of the leftist media there, in the wake of the nutjob duchess/actress’s outburst!  


    Katharine Viner new Guardian editor

    The Guardian’s top dog, Katharine Viner

    Katharine Viner said: “Every institution in the United Kingdom is currently examining its own position on vital issues of race and the treatment of people of colour.

    As I have said before, the media MUST do the same. It MUST be much more representative and more self-aware…”

    (my capitals}

    ‘Every institution?

    One hopes not, for there surely ought to be some institutions run by British men and women of integrity, who will not bow down to BLM racism.

    However, she may well be correct, and if so, that’s outrageous and unacceptable….


    … an uncanny echo of Hitler’s Gleichschaltung…

    1. the standardization of political, economic, and social institutions as carried out in authoritarian states.

      http://www.lexico.com › definition › gleichschaltung


    Nor did the ‘MUSTS’ stop there.

    We all knew that the Enemy Within would seize on Nutmeg’s rant as a weapon to bludgeon Brits into conformity.

    Here’s Roula Khalaf, Editor of the Financial Times!


    In conversation with Financial Times Editor Roula Khalaf — Pi Media

    . “…editors MUST ensure that our newsrooms and coverage reflect the societies we live in…”

    https://www.theguardian.com/media/2021/mar/09/society-of-editors-claim-uk-media-not-racist-laughable  (my capitalisation of ‘MUST’)

    And who, Comrade Roula, defines the societies we live in?

    The racist BLM?

    Or the decent patriotic majority, the millions of normal Brits, not just white, but brown and black too…

    …who are loyal to the Red, White and Blue, and despise the malevolent media…

    …..and disloyal dross, such as that talked by that damned neurotic duchess? 

    Too many ‘MUSTS,’ methinks.

    How they run their own left-gabbling, pro-BLM, Europhiliac rags is their own business…

    ….but who the HELL do they think they are, out to herd every editor in the UK to cater to those of ANY race or colour whose loyalty to Queen and Country is dubious or non-existent.

    These hags, and those like them on UK Pravda…

    BBC, VD, ‘Ignorant Things!’ UK Pravda’s Ageism Exposed!

    …will not be sated until every part of the media resembles the ugly left face of the Guardian, or indeed BBC’s Newsnight Coven, where diversity – of thought – is an endangered species.

    France24 – Paris Pravda’s Latest Trumpophobe Hate-Fest! 


    France’s tax-subsidised propaganda channel seems to be rivalling the fanatical promotion of Trumpophobic fury on display in the output of their UK counterpart…

    WHO? Tax-Funded Media’s Anti-Trump ‘Experts…’ 

    ‘We DO Try To Get Trump Supporters On Our Show’ –BBC 

    Nasty Nabila Stars In BBC’s Hate-Trump Show! 

    ..but the blatant bias of France24’s ‘World This Weekend’ – a carefully selected global ‘Gang of Four’ hacks ‘discussing the news- was so bad that even my new cat walked out of my living room…


    She looks nothing like this!


    …in evident disgust.

    Surely SOMEBODY in the Paris Pravda HQ must realise that exclusion of ANY dissent makes their bitter bigotry crystal-clear to their audience?

    Surely so, but they just don’t give a merde about the basic principles…

    ….once expected of honest media!

    We had not just one but two Trump-haters from the far-left American Daily Beast ( F24’s ‘official media partner!’) plus a sour-faced Kiwi hackette, and a Brit grimnasty from the Financial Times.

    We have noted Christopher Dickey before…


    Gambar terkait

    Christopher ‘The BeastDickey on Trump supporters… They are ‘STUPID! ‘

    …….so his rant about Trump’s ‘cynical game‘ was not unexpected, matched by his DB comrade, Matt Taylor, who told us that in his beloved New York there was ‘a lot of rage’ against the President.



    Taylor took a few side-swipes too at what he perceived as ‘racism’ among American protests against excessive government actions.


    Catherine Field on Muck Rack
    Catherine Field
    Paris-based journalist covering Europe. Berlin & China correspondent for The Observer newspaper. Started career at BBC World Service news..’.

    As for the gnarled NZ pinkolette, Catherine Field, she tried hard to excel the DB duo, describing the President’s performance as ‘jaw-dropping…’ he has ‘caused so much unhappiness.’

    Not to be outdone by that biased bint, we then had Victor Mallet, the FT Englishman, braying that DT has been ‘tendentious …indecisive…unable to step up...’ and a lot more.

    I didn’t have time to jot it all down but you can see it all for yourselves on the F24 link.


    Update – or rather, you could have seen it!

    On re-checking, there’s a message saying this video has been ‘removed’ – by F24? Some guilt, at last?

    Keep trying!

    As I often say, these media elitists are entitled to hold their extremist opinions and express them.


    France24 takes public money. It has no right to hand the left a monopoly of places on a panel meant to be informative about world events.

    The Donald should give Le Muppet a call.

    The Financial Times’ Big Lie – Hoist On Its Own Petard! 

    Europe cannot close its doors to refugees and migrants

    Oh yeah?

    That must be the largest lie seen in the rotten media for quite some time.

    No matter it’s presented as ‘opinion’ rather than news – its manifest untruth is demonstrably established by just one of the other headlines on its own website!

    Hundreds of migrants to be evacuated from Libya to Rwanda       

    *See below -bottom of page



    Of course the tide can be reversed, from Libya back southwards, and reversal needs also to be instituted against the hordes already inside Europe.

    Of course these illegals can, and MUST, have the doors of the Western world closed against them.


    Savages attack Hungarian border


    Savages attack Spanish border

    Of course European nations could stop them, anytime they summoned up the guts to do so.

    And another thing!

    It’s outrageously dissimulative, indeed dishonest, for any media to bracket ‘refugees and migrants’ together.

    As if deserving victims of backward shariah, like that Saudi gal who found sanctuary in Canada…   

    Enjoy Canada, Asia Bibi – But Beware Of Evil Savages! 

    …is in any sense similar to these filthy savages trying to gate-crash countries they’ve no business to be in!




    The Financial Times used to be a reputable newspaper.  I’ll have another look at its headlining soon!


    • Having said that, (above) about how wise it was to shift those illegals from Libya southwards to Rwanda, I now have to ask, were they later brought bare-facedly into Europe by some back-door, as happened with another batch that were taken to Niger – then allowed by the current craven Italian Government to be flown into Italy?
    • Jean-Paul Cavalieri, UNHCR Representative in Libya. “By welcoming them to Niger, and by arranging for their relocation to Italy, both countries have shown much-needed solidarity towards refugees…It’s crucial that other countries come forward with more places, and faster processes, to help us evacuate  more vulnerable refugees in Libya to safety.”

    Elite Enraged At Lippy Brits, So – NO More Referendums – Ever? 

    “How foul this referendum is. The most depressing, divisive, duplicitous political event of my lifetime.

    May there never be another.”


    So says a novelist, Robert Harris, whose story-books are quite readable, but who, we should not forget, is a former ‘BBC journalist’ ( if that’s not an oxymoronic term!)

    His opinions therefore are no more worthy of attention than that of the guys who sweep the streets or the girls who served me my cheap and cheerful meal late this afternoon in my usual eatery.

    His naked loathing of democracy is – or should be -remarkable.

    But the elite’s hangers-on have clearly been given the word to the wise –   curb the emergence of honest debate, especially that which disses the rancid political establishment.

    That in-crowd undoubtedly shares Harris’s tweet-trash call for the very idea of public consultation via the ballot-box to be discontinued….till the end of time! 


    elite arrogance-s


    May there never be another?

    Not just his country’s freedom but EVERY other issue must henceforth be kept untainted by the input of ordinary British people?

    Yet this demented, demophobic drivel has been quoted on several major media, a chorus of hysteria deploring the Leave campaign but almost oblivious to Camoron’s lies.

    Many ‘stars’ in the Remainiac camp have been not only duplicitous but damnably abusive towards Leave campaigners – yet  the report I took the Harris quote from focuses its most relentless rancour on Leave.

    Vote Leave, the official Out campaign, is likely to find that its heated attacks on the “elites” now look out of place. It has focused on David Cameron’s credibility, with videos such as “You can’t trust David Cameron on immigration.”


    Camoron IS a liar.

    He gave a ‘cast-iron’ pledge to hold a  referendum nearly TEN YEARS AGO – then broke his word, only forced to consult the nation by UKIP’s admirable campaigning.  

    Now he’s in a tight spot, relying on international banksters.

    Yet that FT report positively bristles with indignation against criticism of the arrogant elites by the pro-independence freedom-fighters.



    On Thursday morning it also stepped up its criticism of Mark Carney, Bank of England governor, for his past career at Goldman Sachs. “Meet Mark Carney, a close family friend of George Osborne,” began an official video published online. “Carney worked for Goldman Sachs for 10 years, earning millions in bonuses.”

    Well, hell, naughty old Leave, letting people know how the pro-Brussels plutocrats and politicians are tangled together in their cosy privileged word.

    But let’s not be too hard on the FT hack, some geezer named Henry Mmance, who wrote  that report.

    He DID mention a couple of criticisms made against Camoron, i.e.  scaremongering about the economic and security risks of leaving the EU.

    But then….get this !

    It seems, according to this man Mance. there’s one serious criticism levelled against Cast-Iron, one of Cast-Iron’s few rational observations, that the crimmigrant horde targeeting the UK were a “swarm.


    • Migrants-622855
    • 11111111111111111111111111111111111111111111
    • But the FT sees the perfectly legitimate use of the word ‘swarm’ as grounds for criticism!
    • Mance purrs at Camoron’s subsequent grovel for siding with Brits against barbarians.

    “I was not intending to dehumanise,” he said at the time.

    A typical Camoron duplicity, play to the patriot gallery then weasel back to the bosom of the decadent elite.

    Robert Harris’ horrendous demophobic quote, that NEVER AGAIN should British people be allowed a taste of direct democracy, is so sickening, so emblematic of the Enemy Within.

    That enemy has been terrified at the upsurge in protest, the sense of freedom of speech restored, which has accompanied the UK’s first exercise in true democracy for forty years. The rotten elite is determined to roll back the outbreak of patriotism.

    Don’t let it happen!

      Once a BBC drip, always a BBC drip. Harris doesn’t get paid any more by the BBC but he is still one of them at heart.

      I’ve been reading Breitbart and they are showing us what turn the debate will take from now to Thursday, down, down, down, smears and sneers, anything to deter British people from following their healthy instincts and getting Brussels off our backs.
      God forgive anyone who falls for it and votes against freedom.

      They want us to pipe down? They are p-ssed off because we are saying we’ve had enough of them?
      Let’s turn up the volume, till they get the message.
      We don’t want them saying what’s good for us.
      We’re a democracy and that means WE rule.
