Remote to signify a personal boycott
of the Genocide Games
It beggars belief that the BBC could possibly justify blowing the sort of Taxpayer’s Money that will be required to sustain 437 employees in suitable luxury for several weeks at the Genocide Olympics in August, not least in light of the fact that we shall only be sending 300 people to compete in this tawdry propaganda exercise.
And to what purpose, you may ask?Forget the usual platitudes. This is about projecting China on the world stage and about legitimizing the Chinese Communist Party as its rightful government. This is about sweeping under the carpet China’s shameful participation in the Darfur Genocide. This is about justifying China’s colonization of Tibet and the supplanting of its indigenous people with Chinese settlers. And you, the Taxpayer, are to fund this exercise as far as British broadcasting is concerned when the institutionally leftist BBC takes its battalion of employees to deliver a load of whitewash to our screens.
If you should doubt this, you only have to take a look at the BBC’s series ‘A Year in Tibet’. Last night’s offering featured a selfless apparatchik of the Chinese Communist Party going about lecturing a bunch of feckless monks on their duty. The party official was presented a tireless, dutiful and disciplined fighter against the feudal tendencies of the old Tibet, an stirring example of rectitude to be set against the ill-disciplined monks who could not even look after their own treasures let alone be trusted to run the country or stand in any sort of relationship of authority to the native people of the land. Interspersed were scenes of a young Tibetan reduced to cadging odd jobs from Chinese settlers and eventually being driven to seek employment hundreds of miles from home.Had this been a programme about Britons in Africa the tone would have been one of severe reproof. In the case of China there was no sense of this being an objective look at the reality of Tibet and its subjugation. Instead it was no more than a propaganda puff for China’s occupation.
And that is all we shall get from the four hundred and thirty-seven BBC employees sent to bring us the ‘spectacle’ of the Beijing Games.Meanwhile the likes of Sir Steven Redgrave and Sir Trevor MacDonald will be helping, as they parade the Olympic Torch across the Capital, to underpin this brutish dictatorship and giving aid and comfort to the regime whose hands are drenched in the blood of Darfur’s genocide. They and the BBC are no more and no less than willing and knowing apologists for China’s international crimes. They should be ashamed, of course, but will not be.
