Heroes of anti-racism: The BBC

The BBC was established as Broadcaster to the British Empire.  In its charter it was instructed to behave impartially.  Thus, from the beginning the BBC was internationalist.

However, it is in the past 30 years that the BBC has truly excelled, the editorial staff realised that anti-racism was more important than narrow English issues.   The management of the BBC made support for immigration and support for immigrants a stated policy, for the first time taking the anti-racist position rather than the impartial position.

The BBC, more than any other body in Britain, has striven to show the bigoted and narrow minded nature of English Nationalists, covering the savages in the BNP and EDL as rude and twisted individuals.  The BBC ensured that the BNP and EDL were used to show the nature of English nationalism wherever and whenever possible.  Wherever English people have whinged about foreigners taking their jobs, housing and resources the BBC has faithfully presented the other side of the issue, showing these protesters up as "little Englanders" and providing cuts of EDL marches to show the true position.

Threats to internationalisation such as UKIP have been investigated and discredited publicly wherever possible.  Even the modern plays and documentaries have been chosen to take the anti-racist viewpoint.  The Moghuls were portrayed by Michael Wood as a multicultural paradise and Mary Beard did the same for the Romans, showing that internationalism is anti-racist, global government can be a good thing and that whilst Empires might remove imaginary freedoms they destroy the differences that create conflict.  Overall the BBC has been indispensable for removing the threat of English racism.

Perhaps the greatest aid to the cause of anti-racism provided by the BBC was to adamantly refuse to cover the backgrounds and political ideology of the great figures of New Labour during the 80s and 90s.  Society was not yet ready for true Socialism and reporting the links between New Labour and Communism, Cuba and Internationalist Socialism in general would have undermined the revolution from the outset. It is difficult for modern English people to realize that political opinions that have no effect on political careers today, such as being a Stalinist or a sleeper agent for the USSR, would have been political suicide 30 years ago.

It is sad that those Internationalist Socialists who have guided BBC policy from within will forever feel unable to take the credit for their work.  However, it is comforting to know that this dedicated group will continue to suppress the horrors of English Nationalism and keep the path to Socialism clear.  Even the Conservative Party walk in fear of BBC anti-racism.

It is slightly comical that the racist Daily Mail considers all the positive aspects of the BBC approach, such as the pro-migration policy, to be scandalous! See :

"Former BBC business editor Jeff Randall said he complained to a 'very senior news executive', about the BBC's pro-multicultural stance but was given the reply: 'The BBC is not neutral in multiculturalism: it believes in it and it promotes it.'"

Needless to say Mr Randall, with such racist views, was unsuitable as an editor and was encouraged to leave the BBC.
