Broken news

It has been a violent holiday weekend in London, following the tragic death of budding actor Rob Knox in Sidcup on Friday, two black teenagers were wounded after shootings in Camden and Archway, North London. A 19-year-old man was in a critical condition in hospital after being found stabbed outside East Ham Underground station on Sunday night, and a second man, also aged 19, was arrested after he was found near by with head injuries. In addition, two youths suffered knife wounds after gangs clashed outside a restaurant in Nottingham on Sunday evening, and on Friday night James Graham, 29, was beaten to death in Hendon, north west London.

Then yesterday the badly beaten body of 17 year old Amar Aslam was found in a park in a Dewsbury park, clearly the victim of a violent homicidal attack.

Whatever the circumstances, all such violent deaths are a tragedy and I have the deepest sympathy for young Amar's friends and family.

However, I would like to concentrate on the news coverage following the discovery of Amar's body, particularly on the 24 hour rolling news broadcasts given by BBC News24 and Sky News, because it was very enlightening.

Shortly after the news broke, reports started coming in of earlier racial tension in the Dewsbury area, including alleged clashes between Asians and whites. The effect on the newsrooms was electric, the killing suddenly became the main news story, with bright eyed and flushed reporters gushing excitedly, as they gripped their microphones just that little bit more tightly, that this might be a ..... racially motivated attack.

It was clear the Fourth Estate believed they had their prize, a racial crime with a white perpetrator, which could be used as a counterbalance against the endless stream of street murders and assaults, which have made the news over the last few years, in which the perpetrators have all been so inconveniently non-white.

It has been many long dry years for the media, since the killings of Stephen Lawrence and Anthony Walker gave them the opportunity to falsely portray race hate crimes as a white on black phenomenon. There are only so many shrines which can be built in the memory of the blessed Stephen, a new totem is required, and press have been growing progressively more disparate for an up to date non-white victim and white villain combo to splash across their front pages and lead their news broadcasts.

Frustratingly for the eager news hounds white thugs have so far been uncooperative, unlike non-whites who have been assaulting all and sundry with gusto in resent years, leaving the media struggling to find new and inventive means of describing the crimes, which did not include the word “racial”, or even mention the race of the attackers.

However, this time it seemed their long wait was over and they would soon be able to say and write those magic words “A racially motivated attack by a white gang” and be actually referring to events in this century. The newsrooms buzzed as Dewsbry residents were interviewed about racial tensions, and indeed one even quoted the legendary “white boy who stabbed an Asian” myth which so often mentioned in these circumstances, and then quietly dropped, when it is found on to be untrue.

But it was not too be, and to the obvious crushing disappointment of anchor men and on sight reporters alike, the show stopping news was revealed by Dewsbury MP, Shahid Malik, that the police had arrested and were questioning non white suspects, at which point one reporter appeared close to tears. The grim expressions in the newsrooms across the airwaves exposed quite clearly what a blow this revelation had been to those newsmen and women who, moments before had truly believed their wait was at an end.

To quote John of Gwent's comment on the Home of the Green Arrow article about this subject: A fascinating BBC News 24 bulletin not an hour ago revealed that three men have been detained in connection with this and all are Asian. In a half hearted attempt to put out the flames that various sources were wetting themselves after fanning, the BBC News Link Man asked their woman on the spot if she had any comment on the "clearly now discredited" reports that this was a racist murder.

The journo on site suddenly wore a face that suggested a lemon had just materialised in her throat, from thin air, minus its peel. 'Well, such matters are now best left to the police to report on as they continue their investigations' she said. Funny how a white kid whose neck was slashed by a Turk doesn't deserve the truth being told.”

Later, Channel Four News broadcast started by trumpeting accounts of the racial tension, before reluctantly admitting that this murder probably wasn't racially motivated, suggesting that they had prepared the item before news of the arrests broke, and could not quite let the fantasy go.

And so the media's long vigil continues, they carry on waiting, because they know one day their wait will be over, indeed it may be quite soon as tensions continue to rise, one day, maybe tomorrow, next week or next year, a white boy will kill a non white boy, and the press will have their prise.

No matter that they may have to clamber over the bodies of a hundred white boys, or even a thousand, they will grasp their trophy and, as with Johann Nel that in blood spattered centre of black crime South Africa, they will make it the definitive example of a race hate crime, and by constant repartition, use it In the hope of obscuring the daily toll of bloodshed which mass third world immigration has wrought upon our streets. They will use it as they have used Stephen Lawrence for the last fifteen years, and it will be no less of a lie, when they do.

However, the world has moved on, and we are all wiser now, so I wonder, when it happens, as it surely will, will the public buy the same old lie again?

I agree. Why is the media obsessed with demonising the indigenous population? You should look after your own.

If a crime is committed and a member of your family is in the frame you stick up for them. You certainly don't suggest their
guilt even before they've been accused.

I believe that some years hence we shall have consigned political correctness and anti-white propaganda to history. I am convinced that people in the future will look back at this period of history and be completely dumbfounded at what is going on. They will be astounded at the anti-white bias in the media - i.e. the media of what is still a majority white country.

Let's turn this situation on its head and ponder the following:

I wonder if the media in black African countries broadcast anti-black propaganda?

I wonder if black African countries welcome and encourage white immigrants and provide benefits, jobs and housing for them at the expense of blacks?

I wonder if a white on black murder in a black African country is reported as just another murder and with the ethnicity of the attacker omitted from reports?

I wonder if - in the (highly improbable) event that statistics proved whites were disproportionately responsible for knife/gun attacks in black African countries - the black African media would not draw attention to the fact?

I wonder if any murder of a white person in a black African country is immediately seized by the media there and assumed to be a racist attack by a black person? Then when they're found to be wrong they play it down?

I wonder if black African countries encourage the development of white ghettos?

I wonder if black politicians in black African countries bang on endlessly about the murder of a white person many years ago?

I wonder if black politicians in black African countries support the building of shrines to that white victim?

I wonder if black politicians in black African countries declare that the police force is institutionally racist against

I wonder if black politicians in black African countries balk at the release of black defendants who were on trial for allegedly inciting racial hatred by criticising a violent foreign religion?

Good Blog,
it's about time we set about taking down the media, if they want to play dirty then they shouldn't be excempt from getting a good cleansing.

Ask the correct question: Who owns the media?

Are you going to comment on the trial of Sheppard and O'Farrell?


Sarah Maid of Albion said...

Hi Teacher Paris

That case had passed under my radar, so I know nothing about it.

I don't tend to comment on the "Jewish question", but I will keep an eye on the trial because it is an issue of free speech.

Thanks for highlighting it.

Insightful article Sarah, most revealing

When the news media says 'the police are looking for some young men' or words to that effect after a violent attack, it means:

1. The attackers were non-white, if the victim was white (English)

2. The attackers were non-white if the victim was not white (English).

I think that 'rule of thumb' will work most of the time.

Oh, btw, how many gang-rapes of non-white females by white English males have taken place in England in the last decade?

I believe that the answer to that question would also be revealing.

Hi Alanorei

I am not aware of any interracial rapes in the UK involving white perpetrators and a non white victim, other than in the imagination of TV script writers.

In fact any form of gang rape involving white perpetrators is very rare. I as I think I have mentioned before a Channel 4 documentary in the 1990's examined the 14 cases of juvenile gang rape tried by the courts since 1996. Of these, nine were carried out by all-black gangs, it says, and all but one of the rest by mixed groups that included Afro-Caribbean youths.

As I recall from the time, the one which did not involve Afro-Caribbean youths, involved Asians but the report does not make that clear.

Certainly were a similar investigation to be carried out now they would find a lot more Asians. However, of course, a similar investigation would not be carried out now.

I believe that the situation is similar in America, despite what was said at the time of the false Duke Lacrosse allegations there has only been one conviction involving white gang rapists and a black victim in the last 40 years, and that resulted from a plea bargain (something which notoriously results in innocent people being convicted) in New Your in (I believe 1991) also involving Lacrosse players. The boys who didn't plea bargain in that case were acquitted (afraid I can't find a link).

Like the UK media, the US media would never admit it but gang rape is almost exclusively a black crime.

Thanks, Sarah, for your informative comments. There is definitely a 'racist' element to these attacks on white Caucasian females.

Since the attack by several Somalis on teenager May Ann Leneghan, resulting in her murder, made the national news, any equivalent attack with the races reversed would have run and run in the MSM.

But nothing has, which confirms your comments.
