“I don’t call it rioting, I call it an insurrection”

Watch a BBC anchorwoman get a bad case of Teh Stoopid (as well as racism) against a respectable man:

Darcus Howe tells it like it is. These are NOT just riots and looting, this is raw outrage by the British underclass at the police state the country is turning into. It is a raw cry for change. It may be inarticulate, but it is important to remember that the “riots” started as a legitimate protest against police brutality. A fact that will no doubt be obscured by this kind of biased and racist reporting in the days and weeks to come. As Jezebel notes, things are getting awfully heavy on the nasty conjecture over there of late. The legitimate, peaceful protests, meanwhile, get no coverage at all.

And don’t you love how they changed the subject and promptly started to play the fear angle to justify the unjustifiable?

Yes indeed, the Beeb has gone WAY downhill. Lord only knows when it will ever get up again. I hold out no hope for it anytime soon.

PS: I’m adding a new category, as I can see one is needed for this sort of story. How about “Merry Old England”?

    The riots in Britain: a warning to the bourgeoisie

    Written by Alan Woods Tuesday, 09 August 2011

    The riots in Britain are only a symptom of a general crisis of capitalism. The Marxists will not join with the bourgeoisie and its agents in their hypocritical chorus of denunciation. Our duty is to find a road to the youth, to help them to find the right road – the revolutionary road, the road to the socialist reconstruction of society.

    I think I first saw this video on one of the people on my friends list on Facebook. He is from Holland and his lead comment was to watch the BBC, who are the British version of Fox News, make asses of themselves and this allegedly “uneducated” street-person, who actually witnessed the murder of the civilian that set this whole thing off, took the Beeb to school.

    Darcus Howe is a longtime community organizer and activist who was involved during the Brixton Carnival rebellion in 80’s.

    The BBC retracted their statement they made about him the other day and is only slightly better than Murdocks Fox type News.In yesteryear it was better.

    From a song from LKJ back in the Brixton days, “make them one and overcome”.
