STOP FUNDING HATE

Post by Tony Bennett on 12.11.16 17:21

I came across this group today for the first time: 'Stop Funding Hate':

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stop_Funding_Hate

It was founded post-Brexit, in August.

Its main aim is to get advertisers to stop advertising in the three main 'hating' newspapers, which they say are the Daily Mail, the Sun and the Express.

The reason I heard of them is that one of the BBC's top news stories today is about the Stop Funding Hate group having successfully leaned on the giant toy firm Lego to stop all its advertising in the Daily Mail: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-37962425

The Daily Mail's 'hate crime' was apparently, its headline 'Enemies of the People', attacking the three judges who said hat Article 50 could only be triggered by Parliament.
  
Football pundit and former England centre forward Gary Linker is trying to get the Sun to stop advertising Walkers Crisps.

The organisers say they are attacking newspapers which are 'anti-migrant' or 'migrant-hating'.

I think that's fine. If that's the way the group feel, it's a free country ( ! ) and the likes of Lineker can try and persuade who they want to do what they want. Can you really see Walkers Crisps jeopardising their anticipated profits by advertising in the Times rather than the Sun? Dream on. Likewise those who disagree with the claptrap promulgated by these ten a penny celebs reserve the right to stop buying Walkers crisps. Aldi's are just as good and half the price!

The world's gone mad!

What are they trying to do, incite civil war or revolution?  The US of A is in uproar as a result of Trump's presidential victory and now here in good old Blighty there is Brexit - a simple process of democracy turned into something akin to a dictatorship.  It's not the answer.

Generation on generation have strived to put an end to world conflict in pursuit of Utopia - world peace - but the western superpowers don't want that do they?  You can't control peace but by heck you can control, or should I say create,  anarchy.

The writing's on the wall..

The UK press incite hatred - they answer to the paymaster general - the inner enemy - the establishment. 

George Orwell should be highly honoured posthumously.

George Orwell knew what the game would be because it was the same game back then.

Whoever controls the information controls the people.

It's a bit harder for them today but I expect they'll get a handle on it sometime with "hate" and "cyber-terrorism" as an excuse.

I truly believe cyberspace has made it easier for them, it's a world of anonymity, an ideal platform for the propagandist.

At least with the established media you knew who you're dealing with but now we live in a dangerous world of false information dominated by hidden identity.  I have an aversion to anything hidden by a mask - I like to see the face of who I'm talking to or listening to.  That includes clowns!

The pickpocket of former days is the criminal mastermind of modern times - ask Gerry he knows, he was there.

Hate is buzzword of the day.

On Twitter today there is a group called Jewish Voice @J_VoiceUK a Jewish media group supporting the Labour Party, Trade Union Movement and being Pro-Israel and Pro-Palistine. 
They are suggesting/threatening a boycott of John Lewis until they stop advertising in the Daily Mail. Group states in it's bio, that it is based in London.

Tweet by Jewish Voice to John Lewis "It's bizarre that u publish images of joy & happiness while still funding the Daily Mail. Pls explain to us why u still advertise with them"?

Anti free speech seems to be gaining momentum.

Exactly.  Why don't they all just up and move to their beloved European countries.   I wouldn't miss them.

I saw in the papers that the Stars in America who said they would all move to Canada if Trump won have decided to stay after all.  ha ha.  

We just knew they would.

Hillary brought out Beyonce, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga blah blah .  Fat lot of good it did her.
big grin big grin big grin

My oh my they do have a very BIG OPINION OF THEMSELVES.

LAUGHABLE IT REALLY IS.
