Neo-fascism On The Sofa, Courtesy Of The BBC.
You might almost get the impression that the BBC were vaguely sympathetic to the BNP or wanted to assist their growth?
Why else should the BBC want to provide these neofascists with the platform and normalise their views?
I’m not sure that it is as clear cut as that, but the BBC’s QT decision to invite Nick Griffin, BNP leader, started the ball rolling.
The Daily (Maybe) informs us that Griffin was recently invited to the Politics Show North West, last Sunday, 6th December 2009.
It is on Iplayer (35:00 in), what a spectacle. Treating a climate change denying neofascist as if his views are worthy of consideration. The BBC seems to have lost all editorial judgement in this matter, but it probably helps their viewing figures so they’re not going to complain.
Peter Cranie explains it well.
When, in years to come, people look back of the growth of British neofascism I suspect that sizeable blame will be placed on the BBC for legitimising the BNP’s views, aiding their propaganda and increasing their public profile.
