The experiment in mass psychology and propaganda turns the screw tighter…

What a surprise… no wonder most Jews in the UK do not want to F.O. and go there to live…

A fairly interesting thread seen on Twitter. The BBC drone was typical of the type, all reasonable and even-handed on the surface but, when challenged, basically a supporter of System dictatorship. Conflates “free speech” and “regulation” thereof. “We need to regulate free speech so that we can have free speech” etc.

cf. “we have to impose a police state around the virus so that we can live freely with the virus“, and so on.

Incidentally, the aforesaid BBC drone is not even British. American: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mike_Wendling. Time was when BBC people were all British, except for administrative staff overseas.

Here is a tweet from one of his colleagues:

People like that, assuming for the sake of argument (and initial courtesy) that they are honest, should really look at the propaganda being spewed out 24/7 by the msm. Example? https://ianrobertmillard.org/2018/12/10/tv-ads-and-soaps-are-the-propaganda-preferred-by-the-system-in-the-uk/. They might even start to take a properly sceptical look at the “holocaust” farrago, with its thousands of proven fakeries and hoaxes (not least the “gas chambers” narrative).

In reality, such BBC and other “salarypeople” are closer in behaviour to propagandists than to traditional truth-seeking journalists. Look at this, from the same person, and published on the BBC’s own website: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/blogs-trending-54738471.

Pretty similar to the sort of piece that was published in Soviet newspapers of, say, the early 1980s, or 1970s. Smug, hectoring, one-sided, biased.

Meanwhile, “in other news”

…it seems that it has come as a shock to many people that a crazed butch lesbian runs “a toxic workplace“…quelle surprise…

Still, at least she is an animal-lover: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ellen_DeGeneres.

Sickening vulgar nonsense.

What’s the point of even having a navy if the borders themselves are not being defended from migration-invasion? (see below)

What’s that I hear? “To defend the UK from Russia or China“? Well, good luck with that…Russian Navy https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russian_Navy; Chinese Navy https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/People%27s_Liberation_Army_Navy.

…and the World Economic Forum, Financial Times etc have said, openly, publicly, that the “pandemic”/”panicdemic” is “a great opportunity“. They also specified “for what?”…the Great Reset.

They are preparing the ground for the next 33 years, to start next year in 2022.

Chief Constable of the joke police force that has been persecuting the satirical singer Alison Chabloz for years, egged on by a dimwit Labour Party Sikh who is the Police and Crime Commissioner for the county. Dim and also suborned. You could hardly have a more “peaceful protest” than singing songs! Even if (((they))) do not like them!

Derbyshire Police force was also one of the worst bullying forces during the initial panic of the “panicdemic”.

When I was first in Moscow, in 1993, I had a German map which was very easy to use because it had the landmarks and landmark buildings in 3-D picture form. Trouble was, the map had been printed in about 1988, and since then many of the streets had changed names. I knew that in outline, but not in detail. My enquiries of passers-by were therefore confusing to both parties.

Prospekt Kalinina had become Novi Arbat, the Lenin Hills were now (again, as before Lenin’s death) the Sparrow Hills, and so on. Various “landmarks”, such as statues and large busts of Soviet notables, were gone, sometimes without trace, sometimes having left behind evidence of recent removal, such as the bust of Kalinin on the former Prospekt Kalinina, ripped off its massive marble or polished granite plinth, the metal stalk that had secured it still sticking up from the stone.

When I returned to Moscow on a brief business trip in 2007, even more had changed. The huge, circular, and pleasantly dilapidated, swimming pool “Moskva”, near Metro station Kropotkinskaya, which in 1993 I had shared every morning with only a couple of small groups of elderly lady swimmers wearing plastic caps (the pool could supposedly accommodate 10,000 swimmers), had had a cathedral built upon it and, in other neighbourhoods, ugly new buildings were everywhere. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moskva_Pool

Update, 23 March 2022

As seen on almost every past blog post recently, Twitter censorship is now very evident; many embedded tweets just removed, leaving blank spaces. “The Great Reset”…
