Football Lads Alliance: Krigsveteran til 30.000+ fodboldfans – “As far as I’m concerned, we’re at war.”

Mandag skrev jeg her på siden, at Football Lads Alliance samlede 10.000 til lørdagens demonstration i London. Jeg gad ikke skabe en diskussion om antallet, men det var alt for lavt sat. Der var nok nærmere et sted mellem 30.000 og 40.000, langt flere end English Defence League kunne samle, da de stadig var aktiv.

Jeg pointerede, at demonstrationen ikke var omtalt i de danske medier, men det var en sandhed med modifikationer. Journalist Tom Carstensen har lavet en del om den nye bevægelse, herunder en længere podcast, hvor han blandt andet interviewet John Meighan, en Tottenham-fan, der sammen med den tidligere SAS-soldat Phil Campion talte til demonstrationen.

Tom Carstensen på Nordicbet.dk – Titusinder gik i FLA-demo i London – meget lidt i britiske medier.

“Det er bestemt ikke hverdagskost, at 30.000+ fodboldfans – en del af den hårdere slags – går sammen og demonstrerer i London. …

Frem til dagen før demonstrationen tror jeg i ramme alvor, at jeg med dækning på Nordicbet, P1 og Kristeligt Dagblad har lavet mere journalistik om den nye gruppe end samtlige britiske landsdækkende Tv-stationer og aviser til sammen. …

Mens man i BBC eksempelvis har brugt meget tid på at fortælle om den prospanske demo i Barcelona i weekenden kan jeg simpelthen ikke finde noget om Football Lads Alliance-demonstrationen i hjertet af London. Altså mere end 30.000 personer demonstrerer, og ikke et ord på det licensbetalte medie.

… hverken The Times, The Telegraph, The Guardian, The Observer, The Sun, The Mirror, ITV, Channel 4 eller BBC synes altså det var værd at rapportere om.

… racismedelen falder i hvert fald en smule til jorden, når man ser at der var folk af ikke kun hvid baggrund med i demonstrationen. Her var sorte, sikher og gurkhaer. Og når man ser interviews med sorte fodboldfans, der siger, at de på intet tidspunkt har følt sig racistisk behandlet. …

Independent gengiver nærmest ukritisk gruppen Stand Up To Racisms beretninger om, at der altså er tale om en racistisk gruppe. Men det bliver bare ikke rigtigt underbygget af fakta. …

Alt i alt er jeg en anelse bekymret for oplysningen af den almindelige brite, når de store medier i den grad undlader at dække en demonstration som denne.”

London: 10.000 fodboldfans demonstrerer mod islamisk ekstremisme, engelske medier kører rutinen…

“Muslimsk familie fik kastet grisehoved ind ad vinduet”, fortæller EB.dk, der må til England for at udfylde forsidens offerrolle. Hver dag scanner statsstøttede danske medier, større internationale medier efter lignende historier.

Intet dansk medie har omvendt fundet det værd at omtale lørdagens talstærke demonstration i London, arrangeret af ‘Football Lads Alliance’ (FLA). Godt 10.000 fodboldfans fra hele landet demonstrerede imod ekstremisme, og det forløb stille og roligt, selvom de engelske medier rutinemæssigt forsøger at kæde FLA sammen med Tommy Robinson (eks-EDL) og andre de allerede har framet som racister.

Når helt almindelige englændere demonstrerer mod islamisk terror, så er venstreorienterede Independent bekymret, og det isolerede faktum, siger meget om den journalistiske mainstream – Football Lads Alliance: Inside the central London march of far-right linked group.

“It was supposed to give a respectable face to football fans opposed to extremism. The Football Lads Alliance (FLA) – from clubs across the country – put aside their differences and descended onto central London for a march to pay their respects to the victims of terror.

But when confronted with a tiny group of silent counter-protestors behind a police line in Whitehall, they shouted: ‘Scum, scum, scum!’ The anti-racist group simply stood with their signs. …

‘We want to get Britain back from extremism,’ said Paul Shepard, 54, who travelled in from Southend. ‘We don’t care who comes out, whether its gays or Muslims, as long as they support us … but football fans are at the core of it.’

Organisers said the plan was to show ‘concern’ at the terror attacks which have blighted the UK and Europe in recent months, and to pay their respects to the victims. …

The FLA presents itself as against all terrorism and extremism. But anti-racism activists have said members have links to the English Defence League (EDL) and other racist organisations.

Tommy Robinson, the group’s founder was present at the march and occasionally mobbed by fans.

Prior to the march, Weyman Bennett, Co-Convenor of Stand up to Racism said: ‘We believe there is a real danger that the event could open the door to far right groups, that want to promote racism and Islamophobia.‘ …

Everyone at the march The Independent spoke to was quick to deny it was a far right or racist event and there were a small number of black attendees.”

“This is fascinating. Ten thousand largely working-class people marched in London yesterday to protest against terrorism, Islamist extremism and curbs on free speech, and hardly anyone is talking about it. They call themselves the Football Lads Alliance. Supporters from rival football teams marched side by side to challenge terrorist ideologies and listened as speakers challenged the idea that to criticise Islamism is to be ‘Islamophobic’. It was one of the largest working-class demonstrations in recent years. But it didn’t trend online, the media coverage was perfunctory, and Corbynistas who say we need more working-class voices in politics have been silent. I guess these are the wrong kind of voices because they’re worried about extreme Islam.” (Brendan O’Neill, 8. oktober 2017)

JP: “2016, hvor smykkesagen ellers fyldte i internationale medier, blev.. et rekordår for dansk turisme”

Venstreorienterede journalister var imod ’smykkeloven’, og brugte venstreorienteret kritik fra udlandet til at oppiske en stemning. Ikke ‘fakenews’, blot ideologisk dreven journalistik.

Fra Jyllands-Posten – Trods smykkelov og frikadellegate blomstrer turismen (kræver login).

“Dårlig international omtale af smykkeloven ville få alvorlige konsekvenser for bl. a. dansk turisme, lød advarslen i sin tid. Men nye tal viser den modsatte historie.

Danmark risikerer at få et omdømme som et fremmedfjendsk land – og det kan få direkte konsekvenser for bl. a. turismen til Danmark.

Sådan lød i hvert fald advarslerne fra både eksperter og organisationer for snart halvandet år siden, da Danmark blev kastet ud i en regulær shitstorm i den internationale presse pga.
en række udlændingestramninger. …

Men en undersøgelse fra VisitDenmark viser, at den dårlige omtale måske alligevel ikke havde den store effekt på Danmarks omdømme – i hvert ikke, hvis man ser på tallene for udenlandsk turisme i Danmark og interessen for Danmark som rejsemål. Den nye undersøgelse handler specifikt om det tyske marked og viser en generel stigning i interessen blandt tyskere for Danmark som rejsemål. Men også helt overordnet vælger flere og flere udlændinge at holde ferie i Danmark. 2016, hvor smykkesagen ellers fyldte i internationale medier, blev således et rekordår for dansk turisme, med 1,4 millioner flere overnatninger fra udenlandske turister i forhold til året før.

BT-vinkel på Trumps Polen-besøg: “… noget tyder på, at de mange tiljublende ikke kom af egen kraft.”

Jeg så godt historien i internationale medier, og nu er den så kalkeret til dansk. Nuvel. Det venstreorienterede polske dagblad Gazeta Wyborcza erfarer, at Polens konservative regering opfordrer kongresmedlemmer til at busse Trump-støttere ind, og vælger at gøre det til en historie. Intet odiøst i det, men tilsat en god gang associationer, var medievinklen reddet. Intet om antallet i MSM, blot en præventiv modhistorie.

Klassisk clickbaitende Trumpbashing på BT.dk – Tusindvis tiljublede Trump i Polen: Men er det her sandheden bag jubel-billederne?

… noget tyder på, at de mange tiljublende ikke kom af egen kraft.

Ifølge AP, CNN og den konservative amerikanske politiske nyhedsside The Hill, så besluttede man fra Lov og Retfærdigheds side at køre store mængder tilhørere ind til den centrale Krasinski-plads i Warszawa, så Donald Trump kunne blive mødt af tusindvis af glade polakker.

Den praksis er ikke unormal i forbindelse med politiske arrangementer i Polen, men har alligevel vakt opsigt rundt omkring i verdens medier. …

AP har bedt Det Hvide Hus om en kommentar på spørgsmålet om, hvorvidt de mange tiljublende polakker var blevet fragtet gratis fra provinser rundt om i Polen til hovedstaden. Men Det Hvide Hus er ikke vendt tilbage med en kommentar, oplyser nyhedsbureauet. …

Den gratis bustransport fra dele af Polen til Warszawa i forbindelse med Donald Trumps tale på Krasinski-pladsen skal ifølge CNN være et forsøg fra Lov og Retfærdighedspartiets side på at få mængden af mennesker på pladsen pustet op. …

Britiske The Independent går skridtet videre, når de beskriver sagen. Ifølge avisen er metoden taget direkte fra ‘det kommunistiske partis manual’, da det i Sovjet-tiden – ifølge avisen – ikke var unormalt, at man i Polen fragtede tusindvis til hovedstaden, når der kom fornemt besøg fra Moskva. …

Den varme og tiljublende velkomst til Donald Trump i Polen står dog i skarp kontrast til, at en nylig meningsmåling…”

Bruce Bawer om internationale mediers dækning af det norske valg: ‘Breivik’s Party enters government.’

Jeg så Fremskrittspartiets Siv Jensen til et foredrag i CEPOS for et par år tilbage, og hun er på ingen måde hardliner. Desværre. Bruce Bawer kommenterer mediedækningen af det norske valg på Frontpage Magazine – Destroying Norway’s Socialist Paradise?

“On Monday, Norwegian voters, by a convincing margin, turned out the socialists and opted for a new, non-socialist government. This was how the British daily the Independent – which is regarded in some circles as a serious paper – headlined the news:

‘Norway election results: Anti-immigrant party with links to mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik set to enter government under Conservative leader Erna Solberg.’

Just below the headline, to underscore the most important part of the message – namely, that the Progress Party has ‘links’ to Breivik – were two equally large pictures of Breivik, the murderer, and Siv Jensen, the head of the Progress Party, which won 16.3 percent of the vote in Monday’s parliamentary ballot. The Independent‘s reporter, Tony Paterson, devoted a considerable chunk of his text to a recap of the Breivik murders, and only several paragraphs into the piece did he make it clear that the nature of Breivik’s ‘links’ to the party was that he’d supported it ‘in his youth,’ but later turned away from it because it wasn’t ‘militant enough.’ That’s it.

Paterson also claimed that after the Breivik atrocities the Progress Party had ‘toned down its radical anti-Islamic rhetoric’ (as if radicalism consisted in opposing, rather than imposing, things like forced marriage and honor killing) and ‘tried to present itself as a party of government’ (as opposed to a party of what?). …

The Independent wasn’t the only international media outlet that seemed determined to make Breivik the face of the Progress Party. The New York Times worked him into the second sentence of its article on the election results. So did Le Monde. Ditto the Toronto Globe and Mail, which perpetrated this disgusting affirmation: ‘The Progress party, which once had among its members Anders Behring Breivik, who killed 77 people in 2011 in a gun and bomb attack targeting Labour, came third in Monday’s poll, giving it a kingmaker role in coalition building.’

An NBC report did those newspapers one better, incorporating Breivik in its very first sentence. El Pais waited till its second paragraph to mention Breivik, but ran its story under a scare headline warning that the ‘ultra-right’ Progress Party held the key to Norway’s next government (a statement that seemed to wildly contradict the claim, strenuously underscored throughout the story’s opening paragraph, that the Progress Party was the day’s ‘big loser’). Italy’s big paper, Corriere della Sera, went with the headline: ‘Vote shock in Norway: Breivik’s Party enters government.’

Meanwhile, next door in Sweden, Aftonbladet columnist Katrine Kielos went easy on the Breivik angle, but could barely contain her shock and disgust at the decision of the Norwegian electorate: ‘Who ever said that politics was fair?’ Apparently implying that Siv Jensen was the second coming of Hitler, Kielos fulminated that it was ‘as if World War II never happened. This in the country that hands out the Nobel Peace Prize.’

And Britain’s Guardian, not to be outdone by its rival the Independent, hired a Norwegian sociology professor to pen a whole article – illustrated with a huge picture of Breivik – the only aim of which was to yoke the Progress Party to the insane killer.

(Independent, 10. september 2013: Norway election results: Anti-immigrant party with links…)

… Stoltenberg and his socialist cronies will probably be back in power soon enough. Consider this: a new report shows that about 50% of the country’s Third World immigrants support Labor, while another 25% vote for the two parties on the far side of Labor – the Socialist Left and the Reds (i.e., Communists). After the new government takes control, any effort at significant immigration reform by the Progress Party is likely to be heavily watered down (if not killed outright) by other parties. Meaning that non-Westerners will continue to flow into Norway – and that the socialists will stand a better chance every day of being returned to power, so they can crush the ‘hostile environment’ created by the Progress Party and reboot the left-wing, Islamophilic, anti-Semitic lovefest.”
