Kevin Boyle — No One To Vote For Sept 23, 2013
When Father Ted had to kick Bishop Brennan up the arse (as a forfeit for cheating in a football match) he expected to get away with it.
He knew that the suggestion he had kicked his excellency up the arse WAS SO OUTRAGEOUS IT COULD NOT POSSIBLY BE TRUE.
NO ONE WOULD BELIEVE SUCH AN OUTRAGE WAS POSSIBLE.
And so it proved for a while.
In spite of the fact that the exact moment of the event was photographed by Ted’s assistant, Fr. Dougal………in spite of the physical evidence showing at least six inches of Ted’s boot invisible between the cheeks of the good Bishop’s buttocks…….
IT NEVER HAPPENED.
Ted was no fool. He felt safe.
Is this not a perfect metaphor for the mainstream media’s treatment of state-sponsored outrages.
9/11, 7/7 and any number of other terrorist hoaxes crafted to promote the neo-Imperialist agenda under the guise of the phoney ‘War on Terror’.
The same silence applied to the fact that the privately-owned parasitic international banksters, being afforded the privilege of creating our money out of nothing, now effectively own our governments also (of course, these financial interests own our entire mainstream media too).
We can also be sure that hell will freeze over before physical evidence challenging the existence, in Auschwitz particularly, of human gas chambers during WW2 will be aired and fairly debated in the public domain.
It is worth noting that at the end of the aforementioned episode, Bishop Brennan finally realises the truth and kicks Father Ted’s arse up and down the length of Craggy Island.
Banksters, media shills
The day will come.
Thanks to Xymphora for reminding of this episode in a slightly different context.
