This is from the latest instalment:
CUTTING FAST AND LOOSE
This feature is in its third week and Leftist firebrandhas yet to pop up. Shocking really. But it was only a matter of time. Infamous for playing fast and loose with the facts, pulled off a cut and paste job this week that was really quite something.
Speaking about Jenny – the (ex) Liberal Democrat Member of the House of Lords who this week disgraced herself by adding to her portfolio of Israel hatred – he said: “Her comment, in full, doesn't seem so controversial” He then presents the quote, supposedly in full, thus: “Israel is not going to be there for ever in its present form” – (his emphasis).
In his, Hasan’s column in The New Statesman is prefaced as “polemic” and just as well. You see, what fails to disclose is a) the actual full quote and b) the context.
What she actually said was: “Israel is not going to be there for ever in its present performance....Israel will lose its support and then they will reap what they have sown” (my italics) – a threat made in the context of an event whose purpose was to Israel and made by a fanatical anti-Zionist who has gone on record saying she could imagine becoming a suicide bomber had she been born a Palestinian.
should be more careful; confirmation bias and cherry picking are all part of the same dangerous game.
A man once said, “Today I believe that I am acting in accordance with the will of the Almighty Creator…” I guess that’s fair enough; seems like a stand-up guy, right? Well yes, until you learn that the man was Adolf Hitler and that he finished that sentence with “…by defending myself against the Jew, I am fighting for the work of the Lord.' Ah...And from the first instalment, "the Sean Penn editition":
Boris regains lead over Ken’ -- after February’s poll shows Johnson two points ahead in the race for City Hall.The New Statesman published a chart this week -- ‘
But how’s this for an unbelievable statistic: according to the Staggers it turns out that Ken’s ‘impressive “fairer fares” campaign is supported by 68 per cent of voters’ but that ‘just 44 per cent believe he would his pledge if elected’.
Of course Ken’s “fairer fares” campaign (which proposes to cut fares by seven percent) is impressive – just as it would be impressive for him to pledge the reincarnation of Christ using a piece of DNA from a crumb of burnt toast bearing his resemblance.*
Ah, thought I was shocked that as many as 66 people out of 100 don’t believe what Ken says? Incorrect; I can’t believe that as many as 44 actually do.
Ken’s track record is crime, he effectively called himself a moron” when he lied about , and in the past he has U-turned on – you guessed it – busestransport fares more times than a dog chasing its own tail.than a back-street dentist. He’s lied about his record on
(*Disclaimer: to my knowledge, Ken has never actually pledged the second coming – though I suspect he might if he thought it’d make up those two poll points.)
