Guardian BBC

'A cartoon of outgoing BBC chairman Richard Sharp has been taken down by the Guardian newspaper after being condemned as antisemitic.

The Guardian has apologised and removed Martin Rowson's drawing posted on its website as it "did not meet our editorial standards".

Mr Sharp is Jewish...

The Guardian pulls cartoon of outgoing BBC boss

The row comes after Mr Sharp resigned from the top BBC job on 28 April 2023.

'He had found to have broken the rules by failing to disclose he played a role in getting the then prime minister Boris Johnson an £800,000 loan guarantee.


'The cartoon showed a so-called 'Jewish-featured' Mr Sharp departing with a box marked Goldman Sachs, the investment bank where he used to work, containing a squid and what appears to be a puppet of Rishi Sunak.

'The Jewish "puppet master", secretly controlling the economic and political world order, has been a long-standing narrative and antisemitic trope...'

The Guardian is hyper-woke and zealous to the point of fanaticism in its witch hunts against transgressors.

So it’s extremely difficult — almost impossible — to conceive how the (genuinely) racist overtones of this cartoon might have escaped the attentions of numerous hyper-woke, hyper-vigilant, editors and news staff prior to publication.

Which leads to the conclusion that a cartoon which appears to contain GENUINELY racist stereotypes (hooded eyes, big noses, big lips) was published with ***intent*** by a newspaper that otherwise delights in witch hunts against all forms of antisemitism: both the real kind (racism) and the fake kind (anti Zionism).

Why would the Guardian publish this? What’s the game or agenda they’re pursuing here?

One almost wonders if it’s a trick to prevent *any* criticism — most especially legitimate criticism — of Richard Sharp. And of any other Jewish person in public life who conducts their affairs with alleged or perceived impropriety.

Perhaps the object of running a cartoon of this sort — in the very certain knowledge that it WOULD attract condemnation, as indeed it has — is to consolidate in the public the idea that NO gentile can be trusted to criticise the conduct of any Jew, because every gentile is subconsciously anti semitic.

So ‘educated’ non-Jews — such as those who follow the news and current affairs — have a duty to themselves and to morality to keep any thoughts about Jews behaving badly to themselves? Because ‘we’ can’t trust ourselves to be objective where Jews are concerned?

*If* this is the object of the Guardian’s exercise here… a sort of psychological mind trick… it’s really quite a clever one?

Try forming both hands simultaneously into this peculiar gesture. It feels somewhat awkward, contrived. Not a gesture that one’s hands would naturally fall into spontaneously, perhaps. It would, one suspects, require a bit of rehearsal or repetition.

That awful picture we weren't allowed to see.
Was it the mere mention of Goldman Sachs that caused the canard to surface from the sewage ?
