So Now We Know

The BBC may be a little unsure about whether flying airliners into buildings is a good or bad thing, but don't let that make you think they have no ability to take a stand. The July 7 bombers may have been 'misguided criminals' but there's some people so evil even the BBC can see it. Yes, the BBC's launching it's own War on People Who Hang Cartoons.

In a bold attempt to refute claims that Liberals have no self-awareness, the BBC even refers to the Phantom Cartoon Hangers as 'extremists' - y'know, kind of like people who openly incite murder, people who put bombs under researchers' cars, people who blow up Afghan villagers.

Not that I'm complaining. It occurs to me that the BBC has given the store away. If you threw a bucket of water over a sleeping BBC presenter, they'd jerk awake denouncing 'right-wing extremists'. Equally, every report of Islamopathic activity is carefully balanced by reference to the extreme right bogeyman. Well, now we know. Inappropriate wall hangings. That is what the BBC means when they talk about the threat from the rise of the extreme right.
