The BBC chose not to open this story up to 'Have Your Say' comments for some strange reason - can't imagine why but the cynic in me thinks the comments may not concur very closely with the BBC's agenda.
The context is not, as per the thread title BLM, but actually Black history month, and revisiting history is a good thing, whether you agree with what happened or not.
Re. the bold: the one thing it would not be is liberal. It would be a highly restrictive autocracy. We need to change the lexicon, as well as the script.The answer to the question no, the BBC, Guardian and the usual other suspects will use it to push a liberal agenda around BLM, Global Warming and immigration. with a view to steer policy and young adults votes to a more liberal country.
The new outrage, I was unaware of the colour of the authors books I red at school, it was immaterial, it was the story that counted.
If Lenny Henry is the best that they can come up with, they really are in trouble.
Whereas I 100% agree, why not refuse to watch programmes like that and entertain/educate your little one instead of subjecting them to leftist propaganda (because that is exactly what it is).Sat here with my little one watching CBeebies only for it to launch into a "Whose your black role model?" and a monologue on Oprah Witney rising from poverty to queen of the USA and the usual turgid Nelson Mandela shit. C'mon kids, email in and let us know who YOUR black hero is......." Monty is 17 months old and wants to lick the TV when Paddington comes on, not to be guilted for a certain demographics massive chip on the shoulder.
For fucks sake, this literally is taking it too far and I really don't believe kids see colour like adults do - here they're being trained to differentiate black and white and equate black to heroes.........Pure reverse racism. I can switch off to Mister Tumble whilst working from home but I'm now sat here waiting for someone to take a knee. I've never really got into this militant shit about not paying TV licence but I honestly think a line has been drawn here and the time has come.
Is nothing sacred??? Can't our kids be allowed to grow up without having an agenda forced upon them??? If I paid £3 a month for little Amina to have clean water she can ******* stick it, I hope she drowns in her muddy puddle.
Because look at how it's done: bright lights, jingly music, all the stuff that kids will want to watch and get upset if they can't. But, then, the propaganda is slipped in.Whereas I 100% agree, why not refuse to watch programmes like that and entertain/educate your little one instead of subjecting them to leftist propaganda (because that is exactly what it is).
