…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger
Long time ago SBS used to be called by the true blue Aussies ‘Soccer, Bloody Soccer’. For the overseas readers: The Special Broadcasting Service is the Australian taxpayer funded gigantic media conglomerate for those migrants who can’t be bothered to learn English and prefer the other people to pay for the import of their culture or, increasingly, a “culture”. For the last fifteen or so years it has been taken over by the “anti-cultural Marxists”. I can not understand why so many of the so called conservative writers refer to the phenomenon as the “cultural Marxism”. Unless you consider the practice of Hitler’s, Stalin’s and Brezhnev’s concentration camps guards a “culture”, it just does not fit any normal, pre-modernist definition of culture.
Admittedly at the birthing stages SBS imported and showed, exceedingly late at night, subtitled European and South American films, some of very high quality. Then the SBS masters, adjusting to the overwhelmingly illiterate and thus Left audience, slid by and large to primitive pornography, where the subtitles were only an annoying distraction. However the station still, on rare occasions, shows non-PC programmes, unlike its Big Sister, ABC, the initials of which apparently, at least according to its comrade-in-charge Mark Scott do not stand for the Arrogant Bullying Communists, but for the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.
I hardly ever watch it, but on those infrequent occasions I noticed that the SBS news and current affairs programmes rely more and more on the Al Jazeera videos. If you happen to watch, and I am not recommending that, God forbid, you will notice the Al Jazzera logo on about 90% of images. I suspect that that does not come free of charge in the global media swamp. Therefore the SBS i.e. Aussie taxpayer gives money to a Muslim propaganda organisation, which, as many are sorry to say, is often more balanced than our full-Marx ABC, though that is not that difficult to achieve.
Your tax money at work: “Al Jazeera literally “The Peninsula”, abbreviating “The Arabian Peninsula”), also known as Al-Jazeera and JSC (Jazeera Satellite Channel), is a Doha-based state-funded broadcaster owned by the Al Jazeera Media Network, which is partly funded by the House of Thani, the ruling family of Qatar. Initially launched as an Arabic news and current affairs satellite TV channel, Al Jazeera has since expanded into a network with several outlets, including the Internet and specialty TV channels in multiple languages. Al Jazeera is among the largest news organizations with 80 bureaus around the world.“
Peaceful, your-head-attached, Ramadan to you, the SBS and ABC knaves and may the Allah be merciful on you and your venal and cowardly hypocrisy, for the people, when they one day wake up, may not be.
