The Corrupt MSM


The mainstream media probably regrets interviewing this Kensington man about Grenfell [VIDEO]

  Facebook Twitter
Media reporters tried to interview Kensington resident and writer Ishmahil Blagrove about the Grenfell disaster. But Blagrove didn’t just speak his mind about Grenfell, he also dropped some home truths about the mainstream media.
Blagrove told reporters:
I want it to be a revolution in this country. I say fuck the media, fuck the mainstream, you don’t deserve to be there… We should be campaigning not to government, but to the BBC who act as mouthpieces for this corrupt government…
We’ve seen how you in the mainstream media have responded and reacted. For two years, you’ve hounded, demonised Jeremy Corbyn. And you said he was unelectable… And you created that narrative, and people actually believed your bullshit – for a while. But what this election has done is shown that people are immune: they’re wearing bullet-proof vests to you, and the other billionaires of the media owners and Rupert Murdoch and all the motherfuckers. 
He received cheers and applause from bystanders: SEE:

“The marginalised, the disenfranchised, the voiceless”

Blagrove also spoke to reporters about Grenfell:
This is the most marginalised people… the most vulnerable and marginalised people… The council doesn’t hear these people, they don’t even see them. That’s why they want to spend £10m on the facade of a building… because they’re much more concerned about the aesthetics of an exterior of a building and how rich residents in this borough see this as an eyesore.
He added:
The average property price in this area is £1.2m. Who do you think can buy it?… You think any of your rich white man is going to buy a property in Grenfell Tower?

“We’re not going to be dismissed”

He also said “where the crisis in this country is coming from”:
The marginalised, the disenfranchised, the voiceless people are not heard and… you have to have a certain income, or to be connected to certain people, before you are even heard.
Blagrove then turned his attention to the media:
You’re down here and it’s just some sort of feeding frenzy, for you to sort of get a new sensational story… This is a reality that people need to live here day in day out.
He went on to warn:
Do not treat this community as some ignorant, low-IQ community… We’re not going to be dismissed with hollow platitudes… People should be held accountable, people should be in jail for this. But I very much doubt we will get that with this corrupt government.

“Mouthpieces of this government”

It was the mainstream media, he said, that was validating the Conservative government:
You the media… you are the mouthpiece of this government, you are the people who make this possible, you are the ones who validate it,  you are just as culpable as this government…
Ishmahil Blagrove, we salute you. There is nothing left to add.

  1. Fantastisch betoog. Gebruik echter niet de opgegeven link, teveel twitter cookies, maar zie elders.
    Vreemd trouwens, op gefilmde straatbeelden zie ik een heel ander etnisch staalkaartje van de slachtoffers dan bij de beelden van de groep die uiteindelijk op Downingstreet werd ontvangen....

Geert Mak Pleit Nu Voor Vriendschap met Rusland

Ik kwam zojuist mijn oude vriend, de bestseller-auteur en mainstream-opiniemaker Geert Mak in de regen op straat tegen. Na elkaar te hebben begroet, vertelde Geert mij dat hij van oordeel is dat Europa zo snel mogelijk met Rusland om de tafel moet gaan zitten, om de opgelopen spanningen te deëscaleren. De VS heeft heel andere belangen dan 'wij,' aldus Mak, die benadrukte dat de macht van 'onze' Atlantische bondgenoot ingrijpend aan het afnemen is. Kortom, ik hoorde wat ikzelf al enige jaren op mijn weblog schrijf. Opvallend hoe een Nederlandse opiniemaker binnen zo'n betrekkelijk korte tijd zo wezenlijk van oordeel kan veranderen.  Immers, Mak’s gevaarlijke anti-Rusland hetze was een treffend voorbeeld van zijn opportunisme. Mei 2014 beweerde op de Hilversumse televisie de zogeheten ‘chroniqueur van Amsterdam, Nederland, Europa en de VS,’ dat er sprake was van een 'Russische gevaar,’ aangezien ‘meneer Poetin’ aan ‘landjepik’ deed en dat de Russische president d…

Native American Rape Survivors

A sign marks the entrance to White Earth Indian Reservation in Mahnomen County, Minn. (J. Stephen Conn / CC 2.0) WHITE EARTH RESERVATION, Minn.—Candice (not her real name) awoke with a start. Someone was pulling down her sweatpants. It was a male friend. “Stop!” she shouted. He kept groping her. She kicked him and he fell off the bed. She dashed out of the bedroom, tripping and tumbling down the stairs. Gripped with fear, she heard his footsteps behind her in the dark and forced herself to stand upright as she staggered out to the porch. Candice was still intoxicated. She got into her car and drove into a ditch. A white police officer pulled up. She struggled to hold back tears as she told him about the attempted rape. All the officer saw was a drunk and disorderly Native American woman. He dismissed Candice’s report of sexual assault as a lie she had made up to avoid getting a DUI. He did not take her to the hospital for a forensic exam. The sexual assault was not recorded in his pol…
