Blue Peter – better on racism than BBC News?

Raising their arms? It looks like a Nazi salute to everyone who can see.

When is a Nazi salute not a Nazi salute? When it’s reported on the BBC!

Seriously: this is how BBC news was reporting the Nazi salutes we all saw at the far-right rally in London on Saturday (June 13) –

The rally – which crossed the line into rioting very early in the proceedings – was held to oppose a peaceful Black Lives Matter demonstration planned for that day, but BLM organisers cancelled their event because they can recognise a gang of ugly, thugly racists when they see it.

It’s a shame the BBC can’t – especially as the Corporation’s child-facing arms have been so good at addressing the issue of racism for our younger citizens. Consider this, from the Blue Peter presenters…

… and this, broadcast on CBeebies:


But when it came to actual news reports of actual racists, actually being violent, Auntie lost her nerve completely:

And we can’t help but note that this behaviour is at odds with the Beeb’s treatment of left-wing protestors, or even the anti-racists of Black Lives Matter:

What’s the matter, BBC news editors? Are you frightened of a few beer-bellied, tattooed twits?

Have YOU donated to my crowdfunding appeal, raising funds to fight false libel claims by TV celebrities who should know better? These court cases cost a lot of money so every penny will help ensure that wealth doesn’t beat justice.
