I literally fell off my seat that this thread did not seem to go down well with the inmates of this forum. :rolleyes:

Recommended Podcast.


I hope you know that the BBC World Service is run by MI6. It's purpose is not to educate you, but to turn you into a useful idiot for British Régime purposes. Of course, during WW2, the BBC was the useful idiot for Stalin. They hadn't enough good things to say about him.

And the lying BBC couldn't even get the attribution of the term "useful idiot" right.

The phrase "useful idiot" has often been attributed to Vladimir Lenin, but he is not documented as ever having used the phrase.[3] In a 1987 article for The New York Times, American journalist William Safire investigated the origin of the term, noting that a senior reference librarian at the Library of Congress had been unable to find the phrase in Lenin's works and concluding that in the absence of new evidence, the term could not be attributed to Lenin.[3][4] Similarly, the Oxford English Dictionary in defining "useful idiot" says: "The phrase does not seem to reflect any expression used within the Soviet Union".[1]

The faux 'Palestinian cause' is blessed by a plethora of useful idiots.

Although Jew hatred certainly helps anyway.....

M16 mustn't like Israel, so.

Sort of leaves your 'Anglo-Zionist' horseshit in the dumpster.(y)

The BBC covers up so much what goes on in Palestine. It has to though report on somethings and not totally verge into Hasbara fantasy in order to keep some legitimacy.
