I'm always forgetting anniversaries - redux


Thanks again to LWTC247 - this time for reminding me that today is the anniversary of the Piazza Fontana bombing in Milan in 1969



And if you don't know much about the Piazza Fontana Bombing, Operation Gladio, The Strategy of Tension and P2 that's not a surprise. This stuff doesn't get much coverage in the English media because this sort of thing only happens to foreigners in foreign lands

Yeah, right

In fact, so confident is the State Broadcasting Company that people understand that this sort of thing could never happen in Britain, and won't see any parallels or make any connections, it is happy to post up reasonably candid pieces about this kind of explosively covert behaviour when it happens in other countries...

"
Over 4,000 arrests were made in the aftermath of the bombings and one of the suspects, Guiseppe Pinelli, died after falling out of the fourth floor window of the police station where he was being held.

The bombing marked the start of a series of attacks known as "the strategy of tension" between 1969 and 1974 by the right wing group, Ordine Nuovo.

Their aim was to prevent the country falling into the hands of the left -wing by duping the public into believing the bombings were part of a communist insurgency

... One of the original suspects, Pietro Valpreda, was eventually tried alongside two neo-Fascists and numerous other secret service agents in 1974, but all the accused were acquitted in 1985 following numerous trials and appeals."


and thanks also to LWTC247 for taking the opportunity to link to
a brief post I made about another forgotten anniversary, this time the Bologna Station bombing, I made barely a month after 7/7.

What I continue to find truly, truly depressing is that, over two years after 7/7,
this pissy little, relatively low traffic blog, originally created to share photos and the occasional knob gag, frequently figures high-up in simple Google websearches for information and photographs from 7/7 and 21/7

I've lost count of the number of times I've tried to do some basic research on 7/7 and 21/7 only to find Google returning my blog as a source





For fuck's sake

So much for the rest of the British blogging 'commentariat' - the useless, blinkered, dissonant, parochial fucks

(Ok, Lord Patel is a worthy exception and shares my passion for senior policemen trying to pass off tupperware and toothbrushes as WMDs in press conferences ...and there are a few others but not many)


All I can say is that we're just so damned lucky that this false flag terror business never takes place in Anglo Saxon countries and only happens to wops, wogs, fuzzy wuzzies and daigos - and, anyway, they sort of deserve it for being a bit foreign don't they

The state only objects to wackos like Michael Travesser because he's an amateur. Its the state's job to enslave young minds and convince them the world is about to end.

tuning in right now...

For sure

There are a few other things going on as well, especially...

- identification of anyone with a spiritual rather than a material focus as being mental and, if at all possible, a kiddy fiddler / indirect validation of prevailing 'popular' value sets and paradigms by damning people who see things differently (which is a long way from proving that those existing value sets and paradigms aren't shit)

Hmmmm, something interesting appears to have happened on Newsnight tonight whilst all the Loon spotters were distracted with the One True Messiah's japes

By my reckoning that looks like the 2nd time in less than a month Newsnight has had a crack at one particular non-existent 'Lobby'

Damn, I would have liked to have seen that, who presented it?

Stef said...

paxman

it should be up on the Newsnight site soon

the few comments I've seen so far indicate that Newsnight may have done a 'Gilligan' and fluffed what could have been a killer story

I haven't seen it for myself yet

In the meantime I'm amusing myself by winding up some anonymous Non Existent Lobby/ BNP trolls over on Guido Fawkes website with some of their own medicine

I knew it. Self referential bastard.
I am going to retire having already made a career in Poland advertising lager and pizza.
To give a clue.
'Pizda', in Polish, translates as 'quainte' (as Chaucer might say).
The local takeaway was universally known as 'Cunt Hut'.
This was wonderful because I had a contract teaching at American Restaurants - the owners of that quaint hut plus Kentucky Fried.
Globalsubversion in its truest form.
Ooooops, didn't mean to let that one slip.

The eyeties didn't start it - remeber the Mukden Massacre or more politely Incident.

Japanese junior officers bombed a section of railroad, owned by Japan's South Manchuria Railway, near Mukden (today's Shenyang) . TheImperial Japan's military accused Chinese dissidents of the act, thus providing a pretext for the Japanese occupation of Manchuria - which was full of raw materials which the Japanese wanted. ...and so started Sino Jap War No 2.

Somehow that sounds awfukky familiar.

BTW you lose credibility by posting a picture of Mr Gove. As he is an almost nightly fixture as a repesentative ofmthe Lady Dame Jane Pauline Neville James Fan Club we all know what he looks like.

What I find fascinating is his inlcuision on the Friday night Review giving his half assed opinions on fillums and musicals.

To make people think he's human?

Maybe someone on the Newsnight production team shares your concern/ fascination. Maybe that's why they tried to put shaft into Michael's little outfit last night

Stef said...

...or maybe they just think he's a c*nt
