Avoid At All Costs Nothing More Than A Woke Rant
3 February 2020 | by martimusrossSee all my reviews

Front Row Late

Perhaps one of the worst examples of "woke" culture that represents the anxieties of the snowflake millennial liberal metropolitan bourgeoisie and has absolutely no relevance to the concerns and reality of the wider uk.

Just about everything needs revision and correction and it is so bad I have written to both the BBC and the Government to insist this programme be scrapped as a condition of renewal of the BBC's charter.

The show pushes a political viewpoint or world view under the cover of a light topical chat show, this is nothing short of an attempt at political indoctrination.

The worst excesses

Strident feminism that amounts to misandry.

Selection of like minds presenting unbalanced opinions

Anti-patriotic in viewing any sense of self or belonging to any place or culture as being discriminatory.

All white middle aged men are viewed with suspicion.

Bias towards every ethnicity over white Anglo Saxon Protestant.

Wanting to blame the government for every ill.

A decidedly left wing agenda.

In conclusion Mary Beard is a wonderful and inspired historian and needs to go back to what she is good at, and this show needs to be axed as a matter of urgency.
