Freedom Of Thought And Information: Quotes.

March 22, 2017

If the ruling elites want to establish global control they need to be able to control all information the general population have access to. The idea of controlling information in order to limit the ability to think and develop ideas served Hitler, Stalin, Mao Tse Tung and many other dictators well but was completely exposed by George Orwell in the novel ‘1984’.

In recent decades the technique for controlling thoughts and ideas has been more subtle, but that has not prevented many commentators higlighting what is going on.

“If those in charge of our society – politicians, corporate executives, and owners of press and television – can dominate our ideas, they will be secure in their power. They will not need soldiers patrolling the streets. We will control ourselves.” — Howard Zinn, historian and author

“The corporate grip on opinion in the United States is one of the wonders of the Western world. No First World country has ever managed to eliminate so entirely from its media all objectivity” – much less dissent. Gore Vidal

“Understand that all battles are waged on an unconscious level before they are begun on the conscious one, and this battle is no different. The power structure wishes us to believe that the only options available are those which they present to us, we know this is simply not true.” – Teresa Stover

“People in the West need to understand that if the news they receive bears on the interests of the US military/security complex, the news is scripted by the CIA. The CIA serves its interests, not the interests of the American people or the interests of peace.” – Paul Craig Roberts

In the years the USA could claim with some credibility to be the only global superpower, the elites managed to gain control of print and broadcast media throughout the developed world. Unfortunately the technology developed as a tool to to enhance the ability of the elite to control information while maintaining the illusion of freedom, The Internet, backfired on them. The General public forever despised by intellectuals and derided by the elite and the media proved to be a lot more intelligent and adaptable than ‘the controllers’ suspected.

Was Downton Dog Killed Because Of Its Name

November 3, 2014

In last night’s episode of Downton Abbey, Lord Wossizname’s dog was killed off, not violently – we are still a nation of dog lovers after all – but while involved in a three-in-a-bed session with His Lordship and The Countess.

Speculation was rife today that the extremely healthy looking dog was written out of the series because its name was ISIS and this was spreading fear and panic among viewers because that is the name of a middle eastern terror group. Adding credence to this unsubstantiated rumour was the appearance in the episode of The Countess Of Moneypenny (played by Samantha Bond) who had obviously been sent by MI5 to deal with any extremist infiltrators.

You may scoff, but these things must be bought into the public domain (and there’s no interesting news today). And it is not beyond the bounds of possibility as you will see when we show you the story below, concerning Britain’s biggest supermarket.

Strictly Come Cruising

July 11, 2014

With its glitz, glamour and flamboyant routines, the world of ballroom dancing may seem an unlikely battleground for same-sex politics.

The Screaming Queens lobby have turned the volume up to eleven for today’s “We’re being denied the privileged status we demand,” scream, which relates to same sex couples and ballroom dancing

The feather boas are flying over a proposal that same-sex dancing partners should be banned from competitive ballroom dancing circuit.
Funny don’t you think how it’s the gay rights brigade who’ve decided to kick up a fuss although the ban would apply only to same sex dancing partners who may of course both be heterosexual. Are we dealing with professional victims here rather than professional dancers?

Members of the British Dance Council (BDC) are considering changing the rules to define a partnership as “one man and one lady” (lady, how quaintly old fashioned – but that’s ballroom for you), for all amateur and professional competitions, unless specifically stated otherwise.

Critics claim that the change in rules would mean same-sex couples may be “banned” from competing in all but a handful of specially designated competitions, despite facing no impediment to their participation until now.

Same-sex couples — both men and women — currently compete regularly across Britain, and have appeared on international versions of television snoozothon Strictly Come Dancing. Complaints have been raised arguing that, in the case of men, they have an advantage, due to their superior strength.

Peter Tatchell, simpering doyen of the gay rights lobby, said the ban would “probably be illegal” and Heather Devine, a dancer who, with her female partners, competes in competition wrote an open letter to the president of the BDC urging the proposal be rejected as it is unfair.

Is there going to be a similar outcry I wonder when the screaming queen lobby realise that the Lawn Tennis Association insists that “Mixed Doubles” matches may not include same sex teams?

But as usual (and unlike the neo Nazo gay lobby) Boggart Blog doesn’t demand that you agree with us, make up your own minds. Here’s a video of a female couple dancing that very sexy Latin American dance The Rhumba on the Israeli version of Strictly. Now I don’t mind watching a bit of girl on girl action but I think you’ll agree this is a tad too close to soft porn for primetime TV. And just think how creepy two blokes carrying on like this would look.

Ultimate Fails Compilation

March 19, 2014

What a depressing day. George Osborne’s budget (what an inspiring speaker that man isn’t, and then Manchester United exit from the Champions League later, not that I care much but it means there will be eff all else on television. Football for the peak two hours followed by edited highlights of football later.

Still we British always have our stiff upper lip that enables us to soldier on the the face of adversity, our famous sense of humour and thanks to our Germanic ancestry, our love of Shadenfreude. Yes we shamelessly enjoy the misfortune of others. And why not?

Let’s declare today National Schadenfreude Day and celebrate it with this compilation of epic fails:

It’s worth watching all the way through.

Lost Malaysian Aircraft Echoes LOST Television Drama?

March 15, 2014

Lost TV Show Has Plane Going Down Near Malaysia 10 Years Ago! Both 777-200ER! Indeed, oo – er missis.

It’s starting to get silly now. Not only has the Malaysian Prime Minister allegedly called in tribal witch doctors to perform mystic rituals at Kuala Lumpur airport to prevent any other Boeing 777 going astray, some people are quite sure that the LOST television drama has somehow, spookily transferred to real life. I couldn’t say, by the end of the first series of Lost I had worked out they were dead (used a very similar idea for a short story in my now out of print and probably best forgotten 1970s award winning collection) so I couldn’t be arsed any more.

Lost BTW was an American serial drama television series that predominantly followed the lives of the survivors of a plane crash on a mysterious tropical island. There, they had to negotiate an unknown monster, an unpredictable group of prior occupants, strange, other worldly island inhabitants, polar bears, and each other as they tried to survive and attract rescue. The show ran for six years with, according to the review I just cribbed from, increasingly unlikely storylines.

Here’s what people are saying:

Malaysia Flight 370 was featured in Lost 10 years ago…
-Both 777-200ER Airplanes (Lost plane does not add the ER but it would have to have been to make the transpacific flight from Sydney to LA. ER means extended range)
-The number of TV passengers is 9, Malaysia is 11!
-A fake plane in the TV show went down in Bali in the Sunda trench. This trench runs around the bottom edge of Indonesia/Malaysia.
-In the pilot episode, they talk about people looking in the wrong place and being found by the black box signal. All this is going on now with Malaysia flight 370.

(This is bollocks, the plane in Lost was en route from LA to purgatory Sydney so it should not have been anywhere near the Malay Peninsula unless they flew the wrong way round the world (in that case, no wonder it crashed)

Jay Williams
I joked with someone five days ago about how they found the missing airliner telling them that it has shown up in the new TV show Lost 2…now this. Will wonders never cease?

This latest theater of the absurd has all the earmarks of the octopus shadow government. Could this be a real life Philadelphia Experiment? For what purpose? Keep your eyes on the Ukraine, maybe even the Kremlin. Perhaps it will show up flying into Putin’s bedroom as a fire-starter for WWIII conflagration.

Matt McLean
Am I the only one who thinks that someone was trying to copycat the show? Very strange that the flight had the exact same amount of passengers, aboard the exact same aircraft, flying in almost the same air space as Oceanic Flight 815 and vanished the same way. Furthermore, the pilot failed to make any contact with the ground, within the 14 minute window he/she had to do so. I’m no aviation expert, but this sounds like foul play to me!

Bryant Oliveira
Both 777’s with similar colors and design, both had passengers of multiple nationalities, both on the Southern Pacific side of the globe. It’s been suggested that 370 may have changed course and broke apart in mid air, which obviously happened to 815. Eerie, I myself, do not believe this to be coincidence.

Phillip Piggott · Perth, Western Australia
Both flights were on Boeing 777’s.
Permutations of flight 815 = 3108 (Lost TV).
Permutations of 239 people = 3108 (flight MH 370).
Identical! What are the odds?
3108 = 777+777+777+777.
Uh oh! Boeing 777!
Permutations of flight 370 = 2220.
2220 = 555+555+555.

3108 + 2220 = 5328.
5328 = 666+666+666+666+666+666.

Revelation 13:16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.(666).

It is a matter of worship. Either you worship God through Jesus Christ or Satan through Antichrist.

There is not much time left to choose. It is your choice.
nd there we have it, cheesy TV show come to life meets The Book Of Revelations. Or perhaps you have your own theory …

"They" Have Their Spies In Your TV Now

November 21, 2013

You can understand why Doctor Beet wondered WTF was going on. His new web enabled LG TV was showing him ads on its home screen. Being a bit of a nerd he investigated and discovered a hidden, undocumented setting to switch off collection of his viewing habits.

Still suspicious, as you would be because why would a device for watching TV programmes collect data on your viewing habits when TV is a non interactive medium, he monitored the packets flowing from his TV’s network interface and discovered that even with this “data-collection” switch set to off the TV still phoned home with the name of every program he or his family chose to watch, as well as the filenames of every video he loaded over its USB interface. All of this data was sent in the clear to LG’s servers.

And they built a “picture” of his tastes and aim targeted ads at him.

When he contacted LG, they told him “tough, you consented to have your privacy invaded to this by clicking through the EULA, oh and BTW, you might tell your wife her minge hair needs a bit of a trim before you next have sex on the sofa.” Then they advised the customer that they did not give a flying fuck about his or any other customer’s feelings once the money had cleared into their account and that if he had any complaints to take up with the store where he bought the set, because they should have told him about the spying before selling it to him.

Except of course, retailers are not told they are selling surveillance equipment disguised as Television sets.

If you are one of those pathetic sheeple who never does anything interesting and so thinks it is OK for businesses, government and really eviul bastards to gather data on your activities coz … well technology is so wonderful, do you know who has been looking at you bank account recently? Do you. Do you want the boss to know you watch Chicks With Dicks at 11:30 pm on Channel 5?

My Little Porny

November 2, 2013

If you thought you had heard it all, if you thought the internet had already sunk to the deepest depths of depravity, you were wrong. The latest treding item on the creepy but strangely comical fringe of the world wide web is My Little Pony porn.

Yes, you did just read the phrase My Little Pony porn. What kind of sick creeps would post My Little Pony porn online you might well ask.

It should be quite easy to think of at least one, guys and gals, as it happens, yes indeed, yes indeed. But he’s dead and Stuart Hall is in prison so WTF is going on. Are there more total sickos out there than we imagined?

It seems that an undesirable element among fans of the popular childrens’ TV show “My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic” have started creating porn animations dealing with the ponies in the show.

This is a common occurrence with cartoons, and many innocent shows end up becoming hentai or cartoon porn. My Little Pony porn is particularly weird and alarming however due to the fact that the show is targeted towards children of five and under.

Since we live in the age of technology, many young kids, even at 4 years old know how to get online and look up their favorite things. The fact that this stuff comes up in a normal My Little Pony search results should alarm some parents.

Some of the photos can actually get a bit graphic, even showing penetration and other sexual acts that kids shouldn’t see. I’m not going to give yuou a link to any such sites because that would mean visiting them but here’s a link to my search results for my little pony porn
This shite is real you see.

Who would watch this kind of porn, or spend time making it it for that matter. Don’t answer, that was a rhetorical question. I really would rather not know as I have no wish to face murder charges.

The animations depict famous characters such as Pinkie Pie and others taking part in sexual activities including penetration. Most of these pictures are accompanied by lurid narratives to aid the viewer’s masturbation enjoyment. Why people would look at this is up for answers. However it does exist, and once again demon-strates what a great folly it was to close the mental hospitals.

Labour Offers Reel Change

January 24, 2010

Labour Offers Reel Change

David ?Thunderbirds puppet? Milliband was the star guest on Andrew Marr?s political magazine on television this morning. Milliband, The Foreign Secretary (allegedly) in Gordon Brown?s dying government was trying to fend off question from Voice Of The Mysterons Marr about the persistent rumours that a strong undercurrent of opinion in the Labour party would like to see Gordon Brown replaced as leader before the election.

When the subject of the recent plot led by Blairite loyalists Jaqui Smith and Geoff Hoon was raised Milliband denied there had been such a plot and the Labour Party does not go in for plotting, which only proves he doesn?t read the papers. He then said Labour?s job was to govern competently (stop sniggering at the back) until the election and then win a fourth term in office by offering the voters reel change.

Can we assume this means Labour plan to govern by showing us 1930s feature ? length movies and perhaps hiring Jools Holland to play Honky Tonk piano while the reel changing is going on.

Or does he mean changes that will make us reel?

As the nation is already reeling from 12 years of Labour?s style of governing by trying to micromanage the minutiae of individual lives perhaps we should all keep working for a hung parliament.

Patient Affairs Officer

January 19, 2010

During some game show I was not paying much attention to on television last weekend a contestant’s occupation was announced as “a Patient Affairs Officer” in a National Health Service Hospital.

As the managing editor of Boggart Blog my antennae have to be constantly scanning for things we can twist and distort so naturally my attention was grabbed.

We know that the government are trying to cover up how bad unemployment really is by creating lots of non jobs in the public sector, a few months ago we reported on the whacky job titles being handed out. But a Patient Affairs Officer, what kind of job is that.

Boggart Blog is not a moralising organisation, we don’t approve or disapprove of what our readers do. We have to ask though it it any business of the NHS to start encouraging patients to have affairs. And surely the job is pointless.

One thing I can swear to, speaking from experience, is the last thing on anybody’s mind when they are recovering from seriousillness or major surgery is having an affair with another patient.

The Pastor Was Taken Aback

January 12, 2010

As I sat sipping my coffee on Sunday morning, half paying attention to the television talk show The Big Question it became apparent the discussion was getting quite heated and therefore interesting. The show brings people of different religious or secular persuasions together to talk about the issues of the day. Homosexuality and religion, the topic under discussion always gets everyone well wound up.

Eventually as two audience members and a couple of talking heads looked as if they were near coming to blows the presenter, Nicky Campbell, stepped in and to calm things down brought into the discussion a woman pastor from a liberal Christian denomination. She was a sweet, rather shy sort of girl, not at all like The Vicar Of Dibley. Though quite attractive her big eyes and high, arched eyebrows gave her a permanently startled look.

“Where do you stand on the increasingly bitter division among Christians over homosexuality?” Campbell asked her.

“I am often taken aback…” she began.

I hoped for someone to say, “Your private life is your own business love,” but nobody obliged. At least I understood why she looked so startled though.
