Guardians Of The Narrative

Good post by Ace here re: America's allegedly elite media and their passive aggressive attempts to push conspiracy theories. It's all good but this bit struck a chord:
Those who have expressed skepticism about this conspiracy theory have been pilloried -- pilloried by the NeverTrump Smart Set Circle Jerk for a long time.

Jonah Goldberg certainly saw the attacks on Mollie Hemingway.

Why did he never say, "Wait a minute, the Washington Consensus is not agreed that there is any 'there' there, so her opinion, while it could be wrong, is perfectly respectable at this point in time, with this current state of the evidence?"

Seems very strange that the Washington Consensus has known there was no "collusion" for a while now and yet so few members of the Washington Consensus stepped forward to say that skepticism about this was a perfectly reasonable attitude to take.
Hmmmm.... that sounds vaguely familiar.

The MSM is now claiming to be shocked - shocked - by events in Telford. Apparently, the notoriously naive newshounds from Fleet Street were bamboozled by the fast talking big city cops from Shropshire.

The thing is though, plenty of people were reporting on what was going on, Breitbart and Katie Hopkins for two. The MSM wasn't just skeptical about these reports, they were certain that it was outrageously outrageous even to suggest such things could be happening.

They weren't just unconvinced, they were prepared to state affirmatively that anyone who claimed there was systematic sexual abuse by Islamic gangs was a nasty Nazi nutter.

Well, now we know just why people thought there might just be the slightest possibility of Islamists targeting Infidel girls, how about these guys get asked to produce the evidence they used to decide it was all a hoax?

This goes to Ace's larger point. Just as the Washington elite never quite come out and say that they think the Golden Don finishes a tough day's presidenting with a game of chess while drinking vodka and listening to Tchaikovsky, Britain's MSM never get round to saying what they think is *really* going on in places like Shropshire.

Yes, the MSM doesn't believe that there's any connection between Islam and sexual exploitation of Infidels, so what *do* they think is going on? What other possible explanation can there be for how we keep finding gangs consisting entirely of one certain religious group targeting girls from any other religion except their own? And how about these guys answer that one before they get to point and shriek when anyone next mentions the I word?

Privatisation: This Is Why

Our long, dark national nightmare is over:
KFC has returned to its former delivery contractor to supply chicken to 350 of its restaurants after hundreds were forced to close last month. Bidvest Logistics lost its KFC contract to DHL, whose issues with its delivery hub sparked chicken shortages across the country and the vast majority of restaurants shut at one stage.
No doubt the usual suspects will be citing this for the next ten years as an example of the failures of capitalism, before calling for a Central Council for Chicken Products to ensure the public has a constant supply of CCCP approved food.

Never again can this country face the horror of nearly a whole *month* short of fried chicken! We need the type of careful planning and strategy that has made the NHS what it is today....
The heartbroken parents of a two-day-old baby who died after a needless operation today described the horror of their son 'arriving home in a coffin'. Paul Mitchelhill died in his mother's arms following risky abdominal surgery carried out by a doctor who wanted to 'prove a point'
Oops... but at least they moved fast to get to the bottom of it.
Solicitor Lynda Reynolds from law firm Hugh James, who represented the couple, today said: 'The family have endured a long wait for resolution of this tragic matter while GMC and police investigations have been ongoing.
The family have had to not only deal with these terrible events, but have also continued to have to fight for their voice to be heard since newborn Paul passed away in 2013.
Maybe it was complex case and it all came down to a judgement call?
Delivering her verdict, coroner Mrs Dilks said: 'A locum surgeon with responsibilities for Paul's care failed to undertake a thorough analysis of the risks and benefits of the primary closure operation.
'He undertook the operation within the first day of life when no emergency action was indicated and without the knowledge and appropriate discussion with Paul's parents and surgical colleagues.
'He failed to identify abdominal colleague syndrome or give appropriate weight to the concerns expressed by the paediatric intensive team in respect of Paul's condition.
'He failed to undertake timely abdominal surgical decompression. These failings directly contributed to Paul's death.'
Hmmmmm.... it's a complete mystery why no one pulled up this guy..... and .gov is trying its best to keep it that way.
Solicitor Lynda Reynolds [said the parents] were initially refused Legal Aid to fund representation at the inquest and only after an appeal were they granted a 50 per cent contribution towards their legal costs.
'The Legal Aid Agency contends it is 'reasonable' for the family to contribute towards their legal expenses.
'Without specialist representation getting to the truth and understanding what went wrong and achieving some accountability for the loss of loved ones is impossible.
'This is quite apart from the fact that public funds have been used to provide legal representation for the Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals Trust'
So they kill off members of the public then use public money to smother any investigation. What a great business model. That's the difference right there. It's not about efficiency. The private sector may be more efficient but that's not the big thing. It's about accountability.

A fried chicken company does a one-eighty in less than a month, meanwhile it takes five years to get the truth about a dead child. Who would you trust not to make the same mistake again?

The Greatest Living Englishwomen Speaks....

....and her PR team collapses to the floor sobbing:
I come from South America and it’s part of our culture to speak out.
'Our culture'?



I thought Gina was as British as Elizabeth I flying a spitfire over Stonehenge and so anyone who pointed out she was a Plastic Brit who sounds about as convincing talking about Britain as Prince Charles sounds gangsta rapping was therefore a really huge racisss....

This is just further evidence for my theory that the Remoaner fanatics are almost entirely drawn from one of two groups:
  • People who don't understand Britain
  • People who don't like Britain.
Hey, Remoaners: quite a few of us rather like the idea that British political culture is not some deranged mix of a supermarket trolley dash and the Roman coliseum. 

Meanwhile, how's that 'healthier' culture working out for people in South America? 

That's the flip side of it: globalists keep telling us we need to embrace other cultures, but we're not supposed to point out that said cultures frequently produce hellholes, objectively worse by every possible metric.

Apparently, we're not supposed to 'speak out' about that. In fact, we're even expected to swallow stuff like this:
People know me for the Brexit case, but I’ve been a transparency activist in the City of London in the charity sector for years.
She's a 'transparency activist' but we're not allowed to ask how someone with zero public profile previously suddenly gets David Beckham levels of coverage in the media or who's funding her campaign. How about we get some immigrants from a culture where they practice journalism?

We're All Going To Die (Part 2376)

Must be an even-numbered week. If it was odd-numbered then the MSM would be pushing Fat Pride and the dangers of anorexia. Instead we get this:
Millennials are set to be the fattest generation of Britons, with 70% dangerously overweight before they hit middle age, research shows.
People born between the early 1980s and mid-1990s are set to overtake baby boomers as the age group with the highest proportion of overweight or obese people, according to Cancer Research UK.
Heh. And you thought 'Cancer Research UK' was all about men in white coats slaving over a hot DNA sequencer.

 Like, hello? It's [current year] and nerds are out, prodnoses with powerpoint presentations are in.

Of course, there is a slight problem with this message. Hence the tortured attempt to avoid the elephant in the room:
Prof Linda Bauld, a cancer prevention expert at the charity, said the projection showed many millennials, despite their reputation for “following seemingly healthy food trends”, needed to improve their eating habits, cut down on junk food and eat more fruit, vegetables and fibre.
Their 'reputation' for healthy eating. Is she saying it's all a hoax? More to the point is she saying that the the most narcissistic generation in history are less concerned with their health than Gen X or even Boomers?

Millennials have been indoctrinated with the government-approved healthy eating message from the womb. Now it turns out they're fatter even than slobby Gen Xers, clearly the answer is MOAR PROPAGANDA.

 These people are the stereotype Englishman abroad thinking the locals will understand him if he just shouts loud enough. Meanwhile, the more people follow their guidelines, the fatter they seem to get. The prodnoses might want to try thinking about what that might say about their theories and whether alternative explanations might be worth looking at.

A scientist could explain the process to them - if they still employ any.
