So 17.00 came and went. I did actually start to think that after all of the hype, nothing would happen. We carried the whole 5 hour show live on http://alternative-news-network.net and to be honest, I nearly removed the feed from the front page, but after a few tense minutes, “The People’s Voice” burst onto the screen.
I am, however very disappointed, not in TPV itself, but how little support it received from the so called alternative media. It appears that people are so wrapped up in their little self important corners of the internet that they are frightened to praise the efforts of a small group of people doing their best to make a difference.
Last night was never going to be a polished launch of the station. It was an introductory telethon to test things, give a taster of things to come, and raise some much needed cash. In my opinion, it not only achieved that, but far exceeded anything I had hoped for. Yes there were nerves, there were technical glitches, and the odd questionable guest, but for what is, lets face it, a shoe string global station, what they achieved was truly miraculous.
I really believe “The Peoples Voice” has the potential to blow the system wide open. So why are so few people openly supporting it? And why are so many pontificating over every minor glitch, almost willing it to fail. Even on Ickes own forum today, instead of shouting from the rooftops how great it was, they are arguing over why Icke is giving into Ofcom regarding a licence.
Here’s the bottom line you bunch of very strange “activists”. Trust David Icke to do whatever he has to to make it work! Have you spent the last 22 years giving up a successful career and being the butt of the media’s campaign against you like he has. Single handedly fighting for a cause that affects all of us. No you haven’t, so just shut up and trust the guy. Sorry, but I just don’t get it.
Yes, we support Icke. Over on ANN, we have been promoting The Peoples Voice for months, and will continue to do so. Is he the new Messiah, no and contrary to the MSM likes of Wogan, he never said he was, but he is a person who realised many years before most of us that the system is evil and not working in our best interests. As a lone voice he stood up and told it how it really is, regardless of ridicule and personal threats for his own safety. To be honest, until you can match the effort he has put into this war on evil, you have not earned the right to judge him.
Icke was one of the first to say “Paedophilia is the cement that holds the system together”. He exposed truths about the system that made very uncomfortable reading. To date, none of this has been proved to be incorrect, in fact in light of the Savile revelations, we have only just uncovered the tip of the vile iceberg. The corrupt system has closed ranks and is doing their best confuse the issue by spreading disinfo, false investigations, false court cases, and every trick and smoke screen they can to cover up the truth. The real truth behind this whole paedophile network has yet to be exposed, but it will, and when it is, Icke will be proved right again.
As a side issue, one of the strange spin off of the Savile case is the awful truth that any mention of paedophilia in a blog title brings in huge hits to websites. So much so that some sites claiming to be “alternative” have been set up in the last eighteen months dedicated to nothing else. I really don’t get this, it’s like setting up a site about how to build your own house, but only talking about the mortar used to stick the bricks together. Yes, exposing paedophilia is a very important subject, but it is part of the problem, not the whole problem, and certainly not a reason to be a pseudo expert, simply rehashing stuff put out by the MSM. This mini rant doesn’t of course include the sites run by “real” people who have survived unimaginable experiences at the hands of the system. They know who they are, and can write about what the hell they want too, although most of the genuine sites cover a wide range of topics.
Anyway, back to The People’s Voice. The other big gripe doing the rounds at the moment was including Peter Tatchell in the opening extravagansa. To be totally honest, my first reaction last weeks was “WTF?” why give him a voice, (I’m not a fan). But, thinking about it in the cold light of day, the point of The Peoples Voice is not to exclude anyone. If it does the job it’s intended to, how can it expose the system if it hides from it? Let’s hope that they include the likes of Blair, Clarke, Brittan, and McAlpine to name just four.
So all in all, a great start to what could be something really special. Please get behind it, these chances don’t come along that often. Oh and if you don’t like it or trust Icke, do a better job yourself.
