There's Inflammatory And Then There's *Inflammatory*

Just in case you wondered why the MSM was being unusually honest in its coverage of Birmingham's 'Movies And Machetes' Day, the answer is carefully buried in in paragraph 7 of the BBC's follow up - which is to say three paragraphs after the claim it's all racisss:
"But during the first 24 hours of the film over 25 significant incidents were reported and escalated to senior management in 16 separate cinemas," it said.
So, not actually just Birmingham then, after all.

Hey, it's probably just a coincidence how all these violent incidents keep happening at the same movie except I can't help noticing that the MSM and the left - but I repeat myself - seems a little more sensitive when it comes to speech from the right. Lest we forget, these people were outraged about use of the H-word:
He described her intervention as "humbug" and repeated the word again.
The SNP's Nicola Sturgeon said there was "a gaping moral vacuum where the office of prime minister used to be".
And then there was that time the MSM ran with ludicrous stories of Nigel Farage inspiring Brexiteer death squads to ethnically cleanse Essex...

So for those of you keeping score at home, the current rules are as follows:
  • Question the ludicrous claim to victimhood of a deranged leftisit MP: Stoking up hate!
  • Suggest Britain should leave the EU: Toxic rhetoric!
  • Make A Movie Celebrating Violent Insanity:  Diversity Yo!
Needless to say, the BBC was fearless in holding the filmmaker to account for his exercise in social arson.... by quoting from his Instagram account without comment:
Blue Story's writer and director, Andrew Onwubolu, said Saturday's disturbance in Birmingham was "truly unfortunate".

In an Instagram post on Sunday, the rapper-turned-filmmaker wrote: "Sending love to all those involved in yesterday's violence at Star City in Birmingham.

"It's truly unfortunate that a small group of people can ruin things for everybody.

"Blue Story is a film about love not violence.
Yep: it's all about the love except somehow people keep seeing it as a call for homicidal madness.

So, you know, it's basically the Koran of movies.

Of course, there is one other reason why the BBC is busy claiming to be shocked - shocked - to find violence going on here:
The movie which was written by Andrew Onwubolu, a rapper and YouTuber who also goes by the monicker ‘Rapman’, was produced by Paramount and BBC films. 
Public Service broadcasting FTW!

Although admittedly it must be hard to turn down  the creative genius of a man who raps under the stage name 'Rapman'.

I guess it was a tough decision for this guy whether to go into music full-time or stick with his job at NASA.

All of which brings us back where we started: literally everything people on the right say is outrageously outrageous but meanwhile the BBC is blowing our license fees on an inner city version of 'Triumph of the Will'.

Why is anyone on the right still taking these people seriously?

On the plus side though, there is one moment of unintentional humour from Badmovieman. File this one under 'Missing Persons':
He said he wanted the audience to see past crime statistics and headlines about knife crime, to understand how a "good kid" can lose their way.

"They didn't come from child abuse or neglectful mothers. What kids go through in the school playground is so intense, it all starts there."
