the joy of receiving letters

rantComments Off on the joy of receiving letters

This letter arrived yesterday. It is a perfect example of a letter you should not send to an autistic person and its worth writing why.

YOU WILL BE EXTERMINATED – THIS RED INDICATES YOUR BLOOD

This is the kind of thing that can ruin your day, and physiologically change you within seconds. Even the act of the letter arriving can cause a panic attack. The worry it inspires delays opening it. Putting it off makes you even more anxious about what’s inside. It might be something that you have put off due to inertia that you are going to be punished for. Whatever it is, its probably the worst :/

Then after all that worry and anxiety you work up the courage to rip it open and its just the BBC begging for cash for their biased bullshit. They must spend a lot of money sending all these full colour letters out, they have sent me hundreds in the 25 years I haven’t had a TV. Never answered one of these, now I am answering for my family.

STATUS: UNDER INVESTIGATION – Seriously? Fuck You.

“The Public Purposes of the BBC are as follows.

1) To provide impartial news and information to help people understand and engage with the world around them: the BBC should provide duly accurate and impartial news, current affairs and factual programming to build people’s understanding of all parts of the United Kingdom and of the wider world…”

The BBC’s utter codswallop

The BBC, the channel that is basically a huge advertisement for the State and directly involved in the new rise of the right-wing / neoliberal / suicidal lunacy that has caused so much hardship for autists and other disabled people. Why the fuck would we want to pay for their propaganda? One wonders for the sanity of these people and it’s me that’s classed as having a mental ‘disorder’.

In fact, the bias thing is interesting as both left and right claim bias, somewhat validly in my opinion. The BBC is the mouthpiece of the British State. The State is neither right nor left as those are simply convenient tropes to manipulate the masses. They are totally run by, and for the British Oligarchs / Elites / Rulers – the people who actually have power in the State. In other words, money talks, peasants die.

There’s a reason I dumped my TV 25 years ago. It was triggered by a book called Amusing Ourselves to death by Neil Postman, a previous student of Marshall Mcluhan. I see it like a laymans, more digestible form of some of the ideas expressed in ‘Understanding Media‘. Despite the religious overtones some exceptional points are raised that literally made me throw my TV out immediately afterwards.

Here is my message to the BBC licence robots:

  • We do have a device that plays back images, but we do not use it for your utter shit. We pay other people for their content because yours is shit.
  • My partners daughter also uses our device for games consoles so stick that in your pipe and smoke it Joey.
  • Your constant threatening letters are discriminatory against autists. STOP NOW.
  • Why the hell are *you* not under investigation ?

Your constant threats to leverage violence, anxiety and force your way into our home to check whether we watch your utter propaganda shit is discriminatory and completely hypocritical. You have broken your own charter and thereby the law and you then start trying to use the same law to profit from harassing disabled people. Don’t wave your fucking double standards in my face.

Here’s a quick list off the top of my head of ways you have broken your own charter. Once you start doing actual journalism I would consider paying for your service. I do not see this happening at any point ever.

  • not reporting anti-government protests
  • not reporting anti-BBC protests
  • platforming fascists and PSY OP manipulators like Steve Bannon
  • consistent and demonstrable right-wing bias
  • accepting money from foreign governments
  • aiding and abetting terrorism
  • omitting coverage of israeli war crimes
  • adding euphemistic language to reports on israel after being told to change their article by the israel lobby
  • overwhelming percentage of presenters / reporters are right-wing and old as dinosaurs
  • would rather cover FIFA than anti-austerity protests
  • some of the news stories are becoming rather like adverts for companies
  • the BBC and the media in general has become opinion led and fact has left the building.

The BBC want to be funded by me ? I would rather bungee jump off St. Pauls with my own intestines. GTFO.
