Woke Inquisition Cancel Miss Swimsuit UK for Saying ‘All Lives Matter’, by James Delingpole.
Miss Swimsuit UK has been stripped of her title after posting the message “ALL lives matter” on her Facebook page.
Jasmine Archer-Jones, 23, won the 2019 title but all traces of her victory have been erased from Miss Swimsuit UK’s website …
Perhaps even more depressing, though, … is the way the story has been reported in the mainstream media.
Many newspapers, not just the left-wing ones like the Mirror, but traditionally right-wing ones like the Mail, have reported the story with a heavily woke slant.
Archer-Jones’s Facebook statement was described in the Mail, for example, as a “rant”. Her boyfriend’s statement that he doesn’t buy into the idea of “white privilege” is characterised as an “outburst”. …
Yet in the comments below, it’s clear that the vast majority of the paper’s readers are sympathetic to Archer-Jones.
So 2020. Patently wrong, but they’re getting away with it. How can we elect some real leaders?
