When the truth is a Casualty
Al-Beeb has outdone itself this weekend. Seriously. My girlfriend is (unfortunately from personal point of view) an avid fan of soap operas, including Al-Beeb's flagship saturday night drama, Casualty. This weekend I have therefore been treated to a 'thrilling' two-parter about a collapsing building causing a major emergency, paramedics from the hospital being trapped etc etc.
Now, what does this have to with a harrowing picture of the Beslan hostages have to do with another of Al-Beeb's tenth rate soaps, you might wonder. Read on...
Well, with its usual aplomb, Al-Beeb has managed to create possibly one of the most despicably biased, utterly inaccurate and downright moronic scripts in its long and undistinguished history. Yes, oh viewers, because the building in question contained asylum seekers.
Every heartstring imaginable on every instrument imaginable is tugged, oh my yes. We open with a crowd of braying, evil fascist 'locals' who are protesting against the asylum seekers by throwing dog excrement and halfbricks at small children and terrifying these poor benighted people. The bastards...because naturally whenever the racists of England band together to avoid having asylum-seekers foisted on them to drain their local resources away violence ensues. Naturally.
Whereas our asylum seekers (all suitably photogenic and dignified, with their own sob stories of horrific persecution and abject poverty - which of course hadnt stopped them managing to get all the way to old Blighty across the entirety of Europe mind you) were all either deeply talented people (an Engineer, a Doctor, etc etc) or hollow-eyed with the terrors they were still suffering after all their terrible hardships...
(Sickbags on standby, sah!)
This in and of itself wouldnt be too bad I suppose, we've seen this kind of nonsense before after all, though I guess perhaps the family of Stephen Oake might disagree with this image of these universally poor, persecuted fluffy bunnies. Or maybe the family of David Henkel, murdered by an Afghan asylum-seeker who had only just got out of prison, might have a little something to say on the matter! (And sickeningly the MSM have archived - in other words buried deep - any news of this particular incident and you have to go to places like this http://www.bnp.org.uk/news_detail.php?newsId=484 to find out that this poor man ever existed).
But whoever wrote this tripe wasnt content with a simple, blanket assumption of asylum-seeker sainthood. Oh no, he wanted to get all specific for us.
Its as if this scriptwriter actually deliberately sat down and ran through the list of victimhoods (real and imagined) for the last fifteen years and simply plucked them at random to be thrown into the script. For example even the above-mentioned girlfriend couldnt restrain a howl of derision when the Chechen told the patriotic Russian (why the hell he was seeking asylum was of course never explained) how his country was 'destroying my country's culture'. And how his wife tearfully related how he had been captured and tortured by the evil Russkis - so that means he was actively fighting the same cause as the people responsible for the terrible image above (provided by the uncompromising www.thereligionofpeace.com).
Ah, yes. Chechen culture. Dont ya just love it. Well worth 'saving'. Really.
To be fair, in the interest of balance there was a former Moslem who had converted to Christianity, but naturally his persecution was never actually detailed and salivated over in graphic physical detail.
It got better after the non-specifically persecuted Christian convert though, oh my yes. Cast your minds back a few years kiddies, to one of our most famous modern genocides. Even mild-mannered ex-Python Michael Palin admitted later on that he'd got this one totally and utterly wrong when he pleaded for help for the Hutus, 115,000 of whom are still awaiting trial on genocide charges against their Tutsi neighbours in Rwanda.
The Hutus, if your remember, were the majority tribe in Rwanda, under a minority Tutsi government. Despite attempts by the Tutsis at powersharing, after a large number of inflammatory radio broadcasts by Hutu ‘hosts’ (some of whom such as are now on trial for genocide at the Hague) calling for a mass revolt against and extermination of the Tutsis, the Hutu population duly obliged. They rose against their ‘capitalist oppressors’ (note the careful Leftist plautitude here folks) and murdered still uncounted numbers of Tutsis in an orgy of murder, rape and destruction that dwarfed anything seen in Africa for some considerable time. Whilst continuing to mouth the odd leftist phrase along the way to keep the MSM on their side, naturally.
But the Tutsis (the bastards!) fought back. Rather well. They turned back the tide of Hutu maniacs and - well, here’s the thing. They DIDN’T burn down hundreds of villages, rape and massacre untold numbers of Hutus. In fact they showed enormous dignity and restraint after seeing their civilian population decimated in the most horrific way. However the crushing irony was that the Hutus, as is usually the case with genocidal maniacs with a cause, couldn’t conceive of the idea that their opponents would not treat them in victory in the same way they would have treated their opponents, ie by exterminating them to a man, woman and child.
And so, just like the Palestinian populations in 1967 fled their homes after failing to exterminate the Israelis once again, the Hutus took to their heels, tails and bloodstained machetes between their legs, and fled over the border to Zaire, where they began instantly screaming for international aid as well as about Tutsi oppression. Which naturally they got in enormous amounts. But the MSM and Al-Beeb never really forgave the Tutsis for winning a victory against all the odds. After all, the Left doesn’t like an underdog unless it makes the right noises, and they certainly cant comprehend the idea of having a friend on the darker side of pale who ISNT a raving genocidal lunatic…
Which leads me back in my rambling way to the crowning turd in the waterpipe in this piece of Al-Beeb ‘drama’. Because right at the end we had yet another photogenic african family (respresented by the supposedly underage boy whom the Immigration Advisor had been sleeping with, because of course in Al-Beeb’s world even when Whitey helps a black person they are ultimately exploiting them in the end) who, we were told were Hutus whose village had been burned down by Tutsis. In 2005!
NOTE TO AL-BEEB: Your bright-eyed Islamist boys in Chechnya are losing their war to create an Islamic banana republic. Your Hutu pals lost their own genocidal war several years ago and their villages are NOT being routinely burnt to the ground by evil capitalist Tutsis. And your Palestinian poster children lost THEIR genocidal war 38 years ago (well, and 57, 49 and 29 years ago – marks for persistence if not competence).
Get over it.
