Progressive Danmark lagt for had af liberale medier: Bomber drømme, “… latest lurch to the far right”

Venstrefløjen taler altid om, at Danmark skal være et foregangsland. Vi skal turde gå imod strømmen, og lægge linjen internationalt. Der plejer ikke at være flertal til progressiviteten, men denne gang er der for en gangs skyld et solidt folkeligt mandat. Det tager liberale medier ikke pænt, Helt som forventet.

En historie om det progressive Danmark set på EB.dk – Danmark vækker opsigt: – Kopierer den yderste højrefløj.

“Flere udenlandske medier har i den seneste tid skrevet om, at Danmark som det eneste land i Europa finder Damaskus sikkert nok at sende syriske flygtninge tilbage til.

Søndag aften lokal tid melder den amerikanske gigant CNN sig i koret af undrende stemmer med en længere artikel om, at Socialdemokratiet ‘kopierer den yderste højrefløjs politik’.

‘I sit seneste ryk mod den yderste højrefløj planlægger Danmark at sende flygtninge tilbage til Syrien,’ skriver CNN. … Tv-stationen kobler desuden flere gange Danmarks politik på området til et spørgsmål om race.

‘Nogle hævder, at Danmarks identitet i sin kerne er bundet til sin hvide arv…’.

Aviserne New York Times og The Guardian omtalte ligeledes sagen i sidste uge, hvor de også beskrev, at Danmark stod alene om at mene…”

(Følelsesporno hos New York Times, 14. april 2021: “They ‘Bombed My Dream’…”

“Denmark has become the first European Union country to deprive Syrian refugees of their asylum status, even as Syria remains shattered. The bloc and the United Nations describe most areas in Syria as not stable enough to be considered safe for returnees.” (New York Times, 14. april 2021)

“Denmark has become the first European nation to revoke the residency permits of Syrian refugees, insisting that some parts of the war-torn country are safe to return to.” (The Guardian, 14. april 2021)

“… critics say the policy of stripping Syrians of residency permits is the latest salvo aimed at Denmark’s non-White refugee and immigrant community. While fighting has subsided considerably in the region around Damascus, activists say the Danish government is actively putting Syrians in harm’s way. … Those dreams were dashed when Denmark became the first democratic European nation to tell Syrian refugees originating from Damascus and its surrounding countryside to return to the war-torn nation.” (CNN, 18. april 2021)

Science fiction film med hærgende ork’er: “Most critics hated Bright… by contrast, the public loved it.”

‘Ork’-metaforer er vel egentlig dårlig stil, men de perma-krænkede fangede den uden videre, og det gjorde jeg også. Will Smith gør det ok som politimanden Daryl Ward, men sci-fi er ikke mig, og var det ikke for plottet, så havde jeg nok Netflix’et en anden film. Filmen er fra 2017, og The Guardians indignerede anmeldelse er ikke af nyere dato – Will Smith’s Bright: racial allegory or straight up racism? (2018).

Most critics hated Bright (it scores 26% on Rotten Tomatoes, 29 on Metacritic); by contrast, the public loved it. On its release last December, Bright was watched by 11 million people in the United States in its first three days – hence the sequel.

Much of the sticking point with Bright comes down to its headline conceit: fantasy creatures living in modern-day Los Angeles. In Bright’s scenario, elves are now the moneyed elite, humans are in the middle of society and orcs are the underclass – distrusted, mocked, discriminated against, persecuted and socially deprived. Many orcs are gang members, who hang out in sportswear and chunky jewellery and finger-gun the cops driving by. Do you see what they did there?

if Bright shines a light on anything, it’s how problematic these kind of movies are. There’s a thin line between racial allegory and straight-up racist.

The principal orc character, played by Joel Edgerton, is the LAPD’s first non-human cop: a ‘diversity hire’. In time-honoured fashion, he is partnered with a grouchy human cop who hates orcs. The set-up bears suspicious similarities to the 1988 sci-fi movie Alien Nation, in which James Caan plays the grouchy cop partnering up with an alien newbie; but in Bright, the human is Will Smith. So you’ve got an African American who’s basically playing a racist. Huh? Early on, Smith also brutally batters to death an innocent fairy, stating: ‘Fairy lives don’t matter.’ Again – huh? Smith described the role as ‘an interesting flip. It gave me room to explore the idea from a different angle. It familiarised me with the psychological perspective of superiority’. For many viewers, it was a flip too far.”

(Fotos: Bright, 2017; Se evt. Youtube)

Daryl Ward (Will Smith):

“I ‘am’ the city. All right? You save your dime. Fairy lives don’t matter today.

“I need to know if you’re a cop first, or an Orc first. I need to hear you say it.”

“Tell these dickheads, in Orcish, get the fuck back in their vehicles, and drive home, or they’re all going to jail.”

“That’s not true! All right? Orcs are not dumb. Just… all of the races are different, okay? And just ‘cause they’re different doesn’t mean anybody’s smarter, or dumber, you know, better or worse than anybody. All right, it’s just everybody’s trying to get along and have a good life.”

FN’s menneskerettighedskomité: Ikke lovligt at sende migranter hjem til lande med ‘klimaproblemer’

Frankrig kan ifølge en ny dom, ikke sende en astmasyg migrant hjem til Bangladesh, ikke fordi han er personlig forfulgt, men fordi landet er plaget af ‘luftforurening’. Alle veje fører til vestlig velfærd. Jyllands-Posten gengiver pligtskyldig venstreorienterede The Guardian, her citeret fra Fra JP.dk – Eksperter: Stigende klimaproblemer vil føre til massemigration.

“Migration til vestlige lande på grund af politiske eller økonomiske problematikker i hjemlandet er en kendt sag. Men luftforurening og klimaændringer er også på vej til at blive en vigtig årsag til migration, skriver The Guardian.

‘Koblingen mellem migration og nedbrydning af miljøet er helt tydelig. I takt med at egne af kloden bliver ubeboelige, vil massemigration blive normen. Vi kan dog stadig nå at stoppe kommende humanitære kriser, men det kræver handling af verdens ledere nu,’ siger Sailesh Mehta, en af Storbritanniens førende advokater indenfor miljøspørgsmål. …

Ifølge en dom afsagt af FN’s menneskerettighedskomité for et år siden er det ulovligt for regeringer at sende mennesker tilbage til deres hjemland, hvis deres liv er truet af klimaproblemer.

“… wait 20 years and see what happens when climate change drives people out of Africa, the Sahel especially, and we are talking now not just one or two million, but 10 or 20 [million], and they are not going to South Africa, they are going across the Mediterranean.” (Stephen Cheney, pens. amerikansk brigadegeneral)

Racistiske fodboldkommentatorer: Omtaler oftere lyse spillere som ‘intelligente’, mørke som ‘hurtige’

Intet skaber overskrifter som racisme, og man forstå godt at en onlinevirksomhed har interesse i at lave en undersøgelse, der giver en overskrift i venstreorienterede The Guardian. Denne her historie, siger intet om kommentatorerne, men en hel del om mediernes manglende integritet. Alt der bekræfter egne idiosynkrasier er per definition en artikel værd. Pseudo-forskning fra fra RunRepeat – Racial Bias in Football Commentary (Study).

“RunRepeat, in partnership with The Professional Footballers’ Association, has analyzed 2,073 statements from commentators in 80 soccer matches from the 2019/20 season. This is the first time a study of this kind has been conducted to understand if there is a difference in the way the soccer media talks about players of different skin color.

The comments discussed 643 unique players of various races and skin tones.

The findings show bias from commentators who praised players with lighter skin tone as more intelligent, as being of higher quality, and harder working than players with darker skin tone.

Players with darker skin tone were significantly more likely to be reduced to their physical characteristics or athletic abilities — namely pace and power — than players with lighter skin tone players were.

In numbers:

When commentators talk about intelligence:

– 62.60% of praise was aimed at players with lighter skin tone
– 63.33% of criticism was aimed at players with darker skin tone

When commentators are talking about power they are 6.59 times more likely to be talking about a player with darker skin tone

When commentators are talking about speed they are 3.38 times more likely to be talking about a player with darker skin tone

When commentators talk about work ethic, 60.40% of praise is aimed at players with lighter skin tone”

UK: XR radikaliserer – ‘Anti-establishment philosophy that seeks system change underlies its activism’

The Guardian er en venstreorienteret avis, og når en brochure fra ‘Counter Terrorism Policing South East’ sætter venstreradikale Extinction Rebellion (XR) på en radikaliseringsliste, så bliver den primære historie at det krænker aktivisternes ytringsfrihed. Avisen problematiserer ikke, at rapporten også nævner Alt-Rights ‘memes and other imagery’, ‘esoteric language’ endsige Generation Identitaires ’stickers’ og ‘divisive language’. At XR udøver ‘direct actions’, og med sin alarmistiske tilgang går målrettet efter børn, har i sagens natur en handlingsgenererende effekt. Vi vil se klima-terrorisme i Europa om få år, formentligt også i Danmark.

Bemærk afsnittet om Greta Thunbergs rolle i radikaliseringen, og overse ikke følgende sentens om XR: “Anti-establishment philosophy that seeks system change underlies its activism.” Kommunisterne kunne ikke omstyrte det borgerlige demokrati med anti-kapitalistiske paroler, men måske kan man med en klima-agenda smadre det bestående. Her lidt fra artiklen i The Guardian – Terrorism police list Extinction Rebellion as extremist ideology.

“Counter-terrorism police placed the non-violent group Extinction Rebellion (XR) on a list of extremist ideologies that should be reported to the authorities running the Prevent programme, which aims to catch those at risk of committing atrocities, the Guardian has learned.

The climate emergency campaign group was included in a 12-page guide produced by counter-terrorism police in the south-east titled Safeguarding young people and adults from ideological extremism, which is marked as ‘official’.

XR featured alongside threats to national security such as neo-Nazi terrorism and a pro-terrorist Islamist group. The guide, aimed at police officers, government organisations and teachers who by law have to report concerns about radicalisation, was dated last November.

It says that issues to look out for include people who speak in ’strong or emotive terms about environmental issues like climate change, ecology, species extinction, fracking, airport expansion or pollution’.

In the guide, people are advised to listen and look out for young people who ‘neglect to attend school’ or ‘participate in planned school walkouts’ – an allusion to the school strikes for the climate, a global movement of which the activist Greta Thunberg is a lead proponent. Thousands of UK pupils, and millions worldwide, walked out of school last year in protest at government inaction on the climate crisis.

The document also flags young people taking part in non-violent direct action, such as sit-down protests, banner drops or ‘writing environmentally themed graffiti’.

The disclosure that XR has been listed alongside proscribed groups such as National Action and Al-Muhajiroun is likely to be deeply embarrassing for counter-terror chiefs. …

The guide runs through various extremist ideologies, and contains a whole page on XR.

Explaining why it is considered a threat, it states: ‘Anti-establishment philosophy that seeks system change underlies its activism; the group attracts to its events school-age children and adults unlikely to be aware of this. While non-violent against persons, the campaign encourages other law-breaking activities.’

It adds: ‘While concern about climate change is not in itself extreme, activists may encourage vulnerable people to perform acts of violence, or commit such acts themselves.'”

Steve Bannon: “… all your Paul Ryan bullshit at the Heritage Foundation can’t win national elections.”

Hvis man ignorerer den patetiske indramning, så er det faktisk en yderst læseværdig artikel. Steve Bannon er længder foran massemediernes politiske analytikere, og så The Guardian såmænd godt kalde ham ‘far-right agitator’ i underrubrikken. Interview med Steve Bannon hos The Guardian – Steve Bannon: ‘We’ve turned the Republicans into a working-class party’.

“In an interview with the Guardian at his Capitol Hill townhouse, Bannon, who helped shape the party in Donald Trump’s image, argued that Republicans have to fight back against the ‘perfect casting’ of Democrats elected to Congress last year by boosting equivalents from their own ranks. …

‘We’ve turned the Republican party into a working-class party,’ said Bannon, relaxing at a table with an autographed photo of Trump behind him. ‘Now, interestingly, we don’t have any elected representatives who believe that, but that’s a legacy issue. We’ll get over that. We’ve got to find our AOCs.’

Ocasio-Cortez, a 30-year-old former bartender from New York, was elected to Congress last year and has built a huge social media following as a member of ‘the Squad’, a group of four progressive women of colour. Her eagerly sought presidential endorsement went to fellow progressive senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont.

The Democrats and their supporters have ‘better casting’, Bannon admitted. ‘They did an amazing job in 18. I keep saying I admire AOC. I think her ideology’s all fucked up, but I want her. I want to recruit bartenders. I don’t want to recruit any more lawyers. I want bartenders.

… In a second interview by phone last week, Bannon drew parallels with the British general election, in which Conservative Boris Johnson trounced Labour’s Jeremy Corbyn, accused of failing to stamp out antisemitism in the party. Johnson took a wrecking ball to a ‘red wall’ in traditional working-class areas, just as Trump broke through the ‘blue wall’ in midwestern states in the 2016 election.

‘I think it’s a victory for populism,’ Bannon said, ‘Obviously radical economic ideas and socialism and more government involvement, coupled with virulent antisemitism, is not a winning ticket. I believe the Democratic party here, particularly on the far left – the Squad, Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders – should embrace the lessons because I don’t believe it was just Corbyn’s personality.’

… He added: ‘I think the Democrats, on whether it’s Green New Deal or healthcare for illegal aliens or whatever, ought to take the lessons of the working class. These are lifetime Labour members that voted for a Tory.’

Bannon regards Johnson as neither a nationalist nor a populist and likens the prime minister’s vision of Brexit to ‘Singapore-on-the-Thames’ – very different from the version hoped for by those who voted for him. Even so, Bannon argues that both the Conservatives and Republicans should aim to seize their traditional rivals’ territory by appealing to the working class.

Critics say Bannon is an ardent nationalist… He suggests his desire to transform the Republican party as a working-class force stems from a worldview that pitches the elites against the so-called ‘deplorables’, a term based on a comment by Hillary Clinton that was widely seen as an insult to long-disparaged and forgotten people.

My whole theory on the right is that we if we want capitalism to survive, we need to make people capitalist. The problem is they’re not capitalists. We have oligarchs and serfs. That system is not going to survive. I tell the donors, you may hate me, but all your Paul Ryan bullshit at the Heritage Foundation can’t win national elections. He can’t win Wisconsin, OK? Donald Trump can.‘ …

Recalling the Brexit referendum of 2016, Bannon said: ‘As soon as we won in London at the end of June, I kept saying this is a lock for Trump, we’ve just got to drive the same topics. That’s why, when I took over the campaign, it was let’s get back to some basics: stop mass illegal immigration, limit legal immigration, protect your workers. Why do you think Trump today is at 34% approval rating in the Emerson polls among blacks and 36% among Hispanics? He’s going to get 20% of the black vote and here’s why: everybody’s working.‘ …

Bannon appears untroubled by having helped put a man endorsed by white nationalists in the Oval Office. ‘Look, this is what drives me nuts about the left. All immigration is to flood the zone with cheap labour, and the reason is because the elites don’t give a fuck about African Americans and the Hispanic working class. They don’t care about the white working class either. You’re just a commodity.

‘So they have unlimited labour and they’re paying you nine bucks an hour. ‘Let more guys in and, by the way, it’s bigger markets.’ It destroys the working class. That’s what we’ve got to protect. Once we show working-class people of every ethnicity and race that you being a citizen you get a special deal, you get that realignment.‘”

Ekstra bladet om Donald Trumps penis: “‘Den har et kæmpe svampehoved. Lidt ligesom en paddehat.'”

Ekstra Bladet får i år 17,5 millioner kroner i mediestøtte. Det er lige præcis 17,5 millioner kroner for meget. Endnu en underlødig ‘historie’ fra Ekstra Bladet, der har sakset en clickbaiter fra engelske The Guardian – Pornostjerne afslører: Sådan ser præsidentens penis ud.

“‘Han ved godt, at han har en usædvanlig penis.’

‘Den har et kæmpe svampehoved. Lidt ligesom en paddehat.’

Derudover er præsidentens penis ‘mindre end gennemsnittet,’ men ikke ‘exceptionelt lille.’

Sådan beskriver den amerikanske pornostjerne Stormy Daniels udseendet på Donald Trumps ædlere del. Uddraget er fra den erotiske skuespillerindens bog, Full Disclosure, som den britiske avis The Guardian er kommet i besiddelse af, til trods for at den end ikke er udkommet endnu.”

Boris Johnson og MSM’s burka-forsvar: ‘rudeness to muslims’ (UK) & ‘revser dansk burkaforbud’ (DK)

Der er flere måder hvorpå man kan tage den ideologiske temperatur på medierne. Man kan eksempelvis se på hvilke historier de giver fokus. Forleden skrev konservative Boris Johnson en kronik i Telegraph, hvor han med henvisning til et nyligt besøg i Danmark, undsagde det danske burkaforbud. I samme kronik sammenlignede han burka’en med ‘letter boxes’ og ‘bank robbers’. I England fik han hård medfart for hans negative syn på burka’en.

Johnson aims to normalise rudeness to Muslims – the easiest hate targets following Islamist terror attacks. In every society, racism is only dormant for as long as it stays socially unacceptable, but it’s a virus easily released by any contemptible politician willing to stoop so low.” (The Guardian, Polly Toynbee, 14. august 2018)

“Boris Johnson’s vile burka jokes have sparked a four-fold increase in race hate crime. Tell Mama, which tracks anti-Muslim violence, said there was a ‘direct link’ between him comparing Muslim women with ‘letter boxes’ and ‘bank robbers’ and a spike in abuse and threats made against women wearing hijabs or niqabs.” (The Mirror, 13. august 2018)

I Danmark heltekåres han omvendt for sin undsigelse af burkaforbuddet.

‘Åh Danmark, sikke et land’: Boris Johnson revser dansk burkaforbud (Politiken, 6. august 2018)

Hvad Boris Johnson skriver i et engelsk dagblad er ren indenrigspolitik, og burde ikke være en større sag. Faktisk vil jeg mene, at hans holdning til Danmark er ligeså irrelevant som den amerikanske komiker Lewis Black, der i 2014 gæstede Danmark, og sidste år medtog en sketch på albummet ‘Black to the future’. Klart sjovere…

(Lewis Black, amerikansk komiker)

Lewis Black: … I was lucky enough two years ago to perform in Copenhagen in Denmark. Copenhagen is a happy city. This is how happy they are. After I arrived that evening looking for entertainment I went down to the park and a band was playing. It turned out to be the military band. And they were playing ‘Dancing queen’. Yes sir, thats a country I can go to war with. (Copenhagen, Black to the future, 2017)

Pihl: “Fængslingen af Robinson er et voldsomt anslag mod grundlæggende retsstatsprincipper…”

Lørdagens demonstration i det centrale London til fordel for Tommy Robinson trak mere end 20.000 englændere på gaden, og England har i sandhed fået sin ‘Working Class Hero’. Det har været en svær begivenhed at dække for de engelske medier, for hvis de giver demonstrationen opmærksomhed, risikerer de at åbne op for noget de ikke kan styre. Venstreorienterede The Guardian nævner at der var ‘hundreder’ på gaden, Daily Mail satte antallet til tusind, hvorimod The Sun talte titusinder. Alle der ikke ignorerer, fokuserer på optøjer og anholdelser, og kalder i lighed med DR Nyheder de demonstrerende for ‘højreradikale’. Folk er ligeglade – MSM har mistet definitionsmagten.

(Englændere demonstrerer ved Downing Street, London; Foto: Youtube, se også RT)

Godt oprids af lektor Michael Pihl i Jyllands-Posten – Fængslingen af Robinson er et voldsomt anslag mod ytringsfriheden.

“Selv om man så godtager den tåbelige påstand om, at enhver reportage fra offentlig vej i nærheden af en britisk retsbygning pr. definition udgør en ’substantial risk’ – altså en overhængende risiko – for at påvirke den verserende retssag, er behandlingen af Robinson uden fortilfælde: Der er ingen, der har fået 13 måneders fængsel for at bryde et sådant påbud.

Får en mand en betinget dom for at køre for stærkt, skal han naturligvis kun i fængsel, hvis han igen bryder færdselsloven. Han kan ikke fængsles blot for at sætte sig bag et rat. Tommy Robinson skal også kun straffes med fængsel, hvis han med en betinget dom for foragt for retten igen optræder på en måde, der kan påvirke en uhildet retsproces.

Der er mange omstændigheder ved Robinson-sagen, der bør få alarmklokkerne til at bimle. Alene at Robinson udsættes for en så summarisk rettergang (vidner siger, at hele retssagen var forbi i løbet af minutter), og at han nægtes ret til at vælge sit eget forsvar, er en skandale i et retssamfund.

Men hvorfor skulle myndighederne være ude efter Tommy Robinson? Der er ingen tvivl om, at Robinson er en torn i kødet på de britiske myndigheder, som han i årevis respektløst har konfronteret med følgerne af Storbritanniens mislykkede multikulturelle eksperiment. Herunder ikke mindst de uhyggelige grooming-skandaler:

… i stedet for at slå ned på dem, der skaber balladen, islamister og Antifa, griber myndighederne konstant til den nemmere løsning: at lukke munden på ham, der siger den ubekvemme sandhed. Og dommen over Robinson ligner endnu et forsøg fra de britiske myndigheders side på at gennemtvinge en autoritær knægtelse af hans ytringsfrihed for at fratage de mennesker hans stemme, hvis sag han taler.

For det er langtfra første gang, myndighederne har været efter ham: I 2014 blev han idømt 18 måneders fængsel for at have opgivet ukorrekte bankoplysninger i forbindelse med et huslån. En voldsom straf for en mindre forseelse. Robinson advarede fængselsmyndighederne imod at anbringe ham i celle med muslimske ekstremister – hvilket de fluks gjorde: I Woodhill-fængslet blev han sat i en celle med voldelige islamister, der – i det øjeblik celledøren lukkede – overfaldt ham og forsøgte at myrde ham.

Da han i 2014 blev inviteret til at tale i studenterforeningen ved Oxford University, ville hans socialrådgiver og kommunale sagsbehandler absolut sætte grænser for, hvad han måtte sige. Bl.a. ville hun forhindre ham i at udtale sig om islam. Senere forsøgte hun at presse ham til at trække sig helt fra arrangementet, ved at antyde at hun kunne få tvangsfjernet hans børn, som hun påstod havde mystiske sår på knæene.

Politiet har gentagne gange forsøgt at presse ham ved at chikanere ham foran hans kone og mindreårige børn…

Fængslingen af Robinson er et voldsomt anslag mod grundlæggende retsstatsprincipper – ikke mindst ytringsfriheden. Dette anslag er så meget større, fordi det kommer fra de myndigheder, politi og retsvæsen, der har det som deres fremmeste opgave at beskytte borgeren mod overgreb og vilkårlighed. Der er al mulig grund til at tage pejling af sagen mod Tommy Robinson, for den kan let vise sig at være en kanariefugl i mineskakten. Den illustrerer nemlig, hvad der sker, når myndighederne i en blanding af misforstået hensyn til muslimske følelser og angst for terror sætter alt ind på at opretholde ro og orden for enhver pris.”

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.”
