farage bnp Media Should Be Controlled To Stop BNP Demolisher Nigel Farage Says Yasmin Alibhai Brown

 

NIGEL Farage has achieved nothing in his time as Ukip leader other than promote himself. His mission is to gift the two biggest parties an identity and sense of purpose. His comments, such as a recent sense of pride in having “taken a third of the BNP’s support”, seducing those bigots “frustrated” and “upset” by their changing communities, serve to demolish the once feared BNP and make Ukip wholly unelectable.

If Farage leaves, perhaps under a scandal, what then for Ukip?

Nothing. The party will disintegrate.

The mainstream love him to talk. The more he talks, the more any debate on the EU is served up as on man’s weird obsession.

So. Odd then to hear a journalist for the Indy demanding that he be shut up. But here is Yasmin Alibhai-Brown suggesting that the media should also be “kind of controlled” to limit Farage.

As Cranmer writes:

Perhaps the media should also be “kind of controlled” to ensure no reporting of the mortars and Qasaam rockets that rain down daily into Israel’s Negev region.

Perhaps the media should also be “kind of controlled” to ensure that there can be no justification of Zionism or of Israel’s military operations to ensure the state’s survival.

Perhaps the media should also be “kind of controlled” to ensure that the horrors suffered by Jewish families like the Fogels never reach the airwaves.

Perhaps the media should also be “kind of controlled” to ensure that Islam is treated with great respect while Christianity is routinely misrepresented and denigrated.

When mainstream journalists argue for censorship, what price free speech?
