What the British are Reading about us Today. (Incredible lies and hate-mongering!)

WHAT THE BRITISH ARE READING ABOUT US THIS TODAY [Kathryn Jean Lopez]
From a friend in London: this is from The Sun, the UK's largest newspaper, on saturday, Sept 10 2005, in a column by Jeremy Clarkson. I quote this verbatim (it's not up on their website, so i'm typing it in)

"Hollywood has taught America that the military can solve anything. It's full of chisel-jawed heroes who never leave a man on the field and never fail to get the job done. So they'd have New Orleans sorted out in a jiffy.

Unfortunately, on the street you've got some poor, starving sould [sic] helping themselves to a packet of food from a ruined, deserted supermarket. And as a result, finding themselves being blown to pieces by a helicopter gunship. With the none-too-bright soldiers urged on by their illiterate political masters, the poor and needy never stood a chance. It's easier and much more fun to shoot someone than make them a cup of tea. Especially if they're black."

I've been watching a lot of the Katrina coverage. Somehow I missed the military gunships killing poor, hungry civilians.

The understandable emotion of good people aside, New Orleans is not Mogadishu. But I suspect we can expect to read such things for a looong time. And many will believe, especially if it fits conveniently into their worldview.

I fired off an e-mail to The Sun, calling them liars and bigots and threatening Clarkson himself with the Julius Streicher chair at a future war-crimes tribunal.

This pig is a calculating liar and an enemy propagandist, directly and conciously inciting violence and hatred against Americans.

The British public have sunk to an abysmal level of sub-human bigotry and ignorance when they provide the likes of Clarkson, Charlotte Raven, and Robert Fisk with an eager and profitable audience.

These polemicists are the true heirs of Steicher and Goebbels. They are leeches, parasites, and vermin; having placed themselves beneath any attempt at rational discourse. They should be dealt with accordingly.

Write to The Sun and let them know that they have not quite managed to conceal this filth from its intended targets.

Must be Harry Potter's fault - the British media seem to want to make everything in the real world into a fantasy, these days. ;)

Ask them if they have footage of those gunships. Those helo's were receiving fire, not delivering it.

Incredible rubbish. Many Brits have come to hate Americans and love to read garbage like this. And love to believe it, because it supports their feelings toward us. It's a downward spiral. I have been shocked to find some otherwise intelligent UK citizens who seem to believe every evil thing they hear about Americans, and have bought 100% into the politically correct, self-destructive worldview of the Left.

It's the American left that has told the rest of the world they may speak of us in this way.
The American left emboldens the rest of the word to action as well.

This is a lie.
A terrible, hateful, stupid lie.

With the Democrats and the American press at Bush's throat, don't you think this would be all over the real news if it were true???

Only someone who pretends to be a journalist would write this fiction, and only a company pretending to be a real newspaper would ever print it.

Only a child could believe this.
Grow up and learn to tell the truth.
No looters were shot.
I would say shame but that would be a waste of time.
Don't shoot any more electricians over there will ya??

I sent the following email:

As one with numerous reports from family members who are natives of New Orleans, I was appalled to read the blatant fabrications you are printing

Whatever your twisted motivation may be cannot possibly justify such deliberate deception and hate-mongering.

Your brand of "journalism" no doubt has no place for facts that contradict your fiction and therefore this email will never seen by those you are lying to, but I felt the need to express my disgust with you all the same. You are as vile as those who kill innocent people with bombs.

Clarkson's ignorance is appalling. He doesn't seem to realize that this is a country where helicopter gunships not only don't shoot looters, but where there is a signigicant segment of the population who believe the looters are entitled to all the helicopter gunships their little hearts desire.

For those who don't know:
Clarkson's a loudmouthed, obnoxious journalist and TV presenter, a "controversialist" who thinks offending as many people as he can makes him a second Aristotle.
The Sun is arguably the worst of Britains notorious tabloids, famous for such journalistic highlights as faking an interview with a Falkland war widow, claiming survivors of Hillsborough urinated on the dead and printing pictures of topless 15 year olds on Page 3.

ROFLMAO!

Many thanks from a Texas Yorkshireman.

The Sun is truly the bottom of the barrel, with the possible exception of the pro-terrorist Mirror, but they were at least on our side at one time. That makes their publication of this rubbish all the more appalling.

It's amazing that both this and the poll blaming Bush are from Murdoch papers.

Just e-mailed the Sun. I asked the Brits to review their history and be reminded as to who it was that ignited Islamo-fascism. The Muslim Brotherhood which formed during and as a result of the British Occupation of Egypt (1882-1952)was the grandfather of Al Qaeda. The US led by Pres. Bush is ,in effect, dealing with the monster that the British have created. And they have the nerve to accuse us of being the aggressors in the war against terror.

Is that the same Jeremy Clarkson from Top Gear or perhaps Jeremy Paxman from Question Time or maybe a different Jeremy Clarkson altogether?

Europe is beyond propaganda. The brainwashed now look forward in the morning to switching on TV following marching orders of the day.

It's a form of participation in NO's looting, it excites democracies, makes them vote for others to pay for their sins in evil socialism, it can only embrace Islam and repent demanding fascist liberalism.

New Orleans is not Mogadishu.

Of course not. If it was Mogadishu, the looters would be far too busy shooting themselves in the foot to attack rescue workers.

I can only echo what my fellow Brits have said. The fact that The Sun would print something sensationalised and inaccurate is...well only what we'd expect really.

I think maybe The Sun's finest moment (or it may have been their sister Sunday paper The News of the World actually) was a front page campaign against Pedophiles on the front page (which lead to vigilante mob attacks in several places, mostly targeting people who were innocent, including one when the mob found out she was a pediatrician and didn't know the difference, but I digress). Anyway, the 'name and shame' pedophiles campaign was on page one, then on page three they had a paparazzi shot of then-15 year old singer Charlotte Church snapped on holiday in a bikini and a 'story' entirely focussed on how much her breasts had grown recently...

It is filthy nonsense, and I've written to the Sun about it. But be fair: why should spankers like Clarkson bother finding out the truth when the american media is claiming pretty much the same thing?

My letter to the Sun

Dear Sir,

Jeremy Clarkson claimed in his Sept 10 column that the Americans are sending helicopter gunships to strafe black people caught out by the New Orleans flood waters.

This dismal yank-spanking bigotry is shameful: a lazy, demented rant. Clarkson wrote it, and you printed it. Shame on you.

And all the time you are missing the real story about New Orleans - the decades of corrupt state government, the incompetent police force, the self-destroying underclass of welfare queens.

Not to mention the deadly inaction of Louisana Governor Kathleen Blanco, and New Orleans Major Ray Nagin. They refused to carry out their own disaster plans: failing to evacuate the people of New Orleans in good time and condemning hundreds of them to death. It is no coincidence that Blanco and Nagin are the ones most shrilly denouncing George Bush - their hands are covered in blood, and they know it.

>>from The Sun, the UK's largest newspaper,<<

Do not be surprised when the Brits are no longer our friends. If the majority of their population prefer reading anti-American rubbish, it soon will be difficult for them to discern who their true friends are.

The Sun being the largest newspaper in the country doesn't anywhere near equate to it being read by 'the majority of the population'.

And besides 'reading' is probably an overstatement for what the majority of the poeple who buy it do.
