TVs on TV

Recently I was watching Question Time on BBC TV. I was pleasantly surprised to see a contribution being made by a member of the audience that was a transvestite. No-one t all seemed perturbed.

Yesterday I did search on Google using the term “question time transvestite”and came up with this which refers to a different Question Time program.

I spent a bit of time looking through the Stormfront web site and was appalled. They say that they are:

a community of racial realists and idealists. We are White Nationalists who support true diversity and a homeland for all peoples. Thousands of organizations promote the interests, values and heritage of non-White minorities. We promote ours. We are the voice of the new, embattled White minority!

An alternative summary is:

Stormfront is a white nationalist and supremacist[2] neo-Nazi[3] Internet forum that was the Internet's first major hate site.[4]

Stormfront began as an online bulletin board system in the early 1990s before being established as a website in 1995 by former Ku Klux Klan leader and white nationalist activist Don Black. It received national attention in the United States in 2000 after being featured as the subject of a documentary, Stormfront has been the subject of controversy after being removed from French and German Google indexes, for targeting an online FOX News poll on racial segregation, and for having political candidates as members. Its prominence has grown since the 1990s, attracting attention from watchdog organizations that oppose racism and antisemitism.

The website is a theme-based discussion forum with numerous boards for topics including ideology, science, revisionism, homeschooling, and self defense. Stormfront also hosts news stories, a merchandise store, and extensive links to racist organizations. The site has a logo featuring the Celtic cross common to neo-nazi iconography surrounded by the motto "White Pride World Wide".

It saddens me that there are people – and quite a lot of them – that seem to swallow the kind of stuff that Stormfront propagates.

Of course, the Express article that is mentioned by Stormfront leaves me saddened in a similar way.

The Google search did also come up with this at the Over 50’s forum. It’s nice to see a more open minded view of life.
