BBC in crisis as sex abuse scandal surfaces. “…[the late Jimmy Savile] was a prominent children’s entertainer whose status afforded him unsupervised access to a near-endless supply of potential victims. To make matters worse, it’s alleged senior figures at the BBC who were aware of his predilections chose to turn a blind eye.” Sex scandals… they’re not just for football teams and churches anymore.

The thing I was shocked to see was his professional involvement with children. It’s almost a stone cold lock that in a story like this, the perp is involved with Boy Scouts, youth sports, birthday clowns, or whatever. It’s about having access to the kids.

There’s a reason that child abusers always have “normal” people covering their tracks for them: those “normal” people have latent or not-so-latent child-raping minds. I think if it was known just how much of this goes on all over the place, the sane people would never stop vomiting…

…and everyone else would be saying “Well, I guess it’s normal; let’s legalize it.”

“Well, I guess it’s normal; let’s legalize it.”

You’ll be hearing that from the left.

I’ve often said that the Left won’t rest until someone can say, “I’d like to introduce you to my wife and my 6-year-old daughter” when he’s only pointing to one person.

“the BBC who were aware of his predilections chose to turn a blind eye”

A lot of blind eyes seem to be turned to this sort of thing except when a Catholic priest, or a conservative minister or politician can be gored.

Considering the long standing British predeliction for cross dressing, etc, I’m not too surprised by this.

That quote “the BBC who were aware of his predilections chose to turn a blind eye”

I would love to see an “old school” reporter (my word) parse that statement.

~the BBC- a tax-payer funded, unbiased news source…
~”who were aware of his predilections”- but, he’s on our side…
~Chose to turn a blind eye… and let more kids be abused.

Fine job, mate, since I’m on my second pint, think I’ll shut up now.

There’s a special place in hell for people like this and those who turned a blind eye.

Hopefully, it’s room 101 in the Ministry of Love.

I just finished reading 1984.

This is why I never let my kid out of my sight! Except for school, but by then she was well versed in what people were allowed to do to her, and how to tell me if someone did. By that point, she was clearly not victim material – pedos want kids who can be lured by attention and who have no structure in their lives. Sad – really sad.

Most of us are sick to death of the BBC, and it’s agandas and adherence to common purpose. They are a thoroughly corrupt, left-wing organisation, and have turned completely on its head their original remit. They are a slippery, biased den of iniquity. Lord Reith would turn in his grave.

That the British who have the temerity to watch television are taxed by this organisation (on pain of prosecution), and are continually fed the BBC’s opinion on everything rather than actualities, and subjected to continuous political doctrine, lied to about climate change, and now it’s confirmed that at least “one of their own” has been up to paedophillic skulduggery (which has been systematically covered up), should give the public at large serious cause for alarm.

The BBC should be disbanded, and many of the participants in this hive of self-interest prosecuted.

There’s an interesting side story to this – there’s a New York Times connection:
http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2012/10/a_bbc_pedophilia_scandal_has_a_new_york_times_connection.html

Seems the former director general of the BBC is the brand new president and CEO of the NYSlimes. From one cesspool into another…

Gee, I wonder if they will start offering free daycare in house.
Nothing like in house pedophilia.
