I watched Peter Bell on STV last night, it is the first time in a long time I have watched anything from that station or any other British propaganda station.
I only watched it because I have a great deal of time for Peter and think he says, writes, behaves and acts in a manner that advances our cause.
I am full of admiration for the way he conducted himself last night, especially when considering he was pitted against a seasoned performer like Simon Pia.
Simon was billed as a 2016 convert to Yes, in this piece he sounded as committed to Independence as the Sunday Herald.
I noted his references to the Scottish Nationalist Party, how the Sunday Herald and “Scottish Journalists” are above reproach, he even suggested that the hundreds of thousands of words written daily by these scribes in the foreign owned media are checked and double checked yet again for accuracy.
It makes you wonder why Wings Over Scotland has so many readers so many hits and so many articles finding stories and opinion pieces that have been through this arduous MSM checking and double checking only to be revealed as a load of complete pish!
Every single day we find stories that are fabricated, in one week recently The Herald had to apologise twice for inaccurate reporting, LIES to you and me.
He wanted the ‘Scottish Nationalist Party’ to rein in these people on social media who it seems in Simon’s opinion are the only and real problem, how dare they question this elite that work for the foreign owned media and broadcasters.
The media and the unionist politicos, hate, loathe and despise social media because it takes away their absolute control .
Pre-Internet in the days of yore, the establishment controlled the message completely.
You were given the information the establishment wanted you to hear anything else was just buried.
They would write sycophantic pieces on the Labour and Tory politicians of the day painting them as almost JFK types.
The reality was of course quite different and the myths about some of these self- aggrandising parasites still pervade to this day.
Simon last night even tried to suggest that The Daily Record was balanced in its coverage!
What annoys me most about Simon and his ilk is their arrogance is such that they think they can tell us any kind of shite and we should just accept it, if they say it, it must be true and we should just shut up and let them get on with it, they truly believe they are somehow superior to the hoi polloi.
When we dare to question this establishment, we are evil bad guys and they always roll out that we are holding back the cause of independence by daring to question the lies and fabrications of anti-independence journalists.
They apparently are advancing the cause of independence by printing lies and Unionist Press releases unchallenged.
The Unionist commentariat and politicos are all the same, they are never to be questioned, never to have their false statements, articles or accusations exposed.
When you do this you are the bad guy, it is the same tactics used by the child and sexual abusers when they are caught, the first line of defence is the person making the complaint is a liar and a charlatan out to damage this upright persons reputation out of spite and malice.
The accused then portrays themself as the victim and this evil person accusing them is the bad one.
We have seen and heard similar stories when women have been sexually assaulted, they brought it on themselves for wearing inappropriate clothing, their skirt was too short or too much make up, this was the problem, not the actions of the attacker.
People like Simon want only a select few to be able to tell us what to think, what to want and most importantly for the establishment they want to control our expectations.
The lower our expectations, the less we expect in return for our taxes the more they can keep back for themselves and their rich pals.
Their plan is to enrich the wealth of Panama, not Perth or Paisley.
I am sick and tired of Simon and all the other establishment commentariat telling me I have no right to question, complain or think differently from them and their myopic world view.
Understand this Simon, and best you tell all your pals in the media too, we are not going away, we will not be quiet, we will continue to call out the foreign owned media and broadcasters on their lies and smears.
Perhaps you could suggest to them that they need to look again at the way they check and double check their articles for accuracy because the lies just keep coming.
I will finish this by congratulating my pal Peter A Bell who kept his cool and his hand steady on that walking stick, I fear if it had been me I would not have been quite so restrained.
