The Sun, Media Terrorism and Inciting Racial Hatred.


I don't read The Sun, I don't read The Sun because if I wanted to be fuelled with hatred for others and filled full of mistruths, misinformation and spoon fed misogyny daily, I would.....well, I would read The Sun, I suppose.

But todays headline in what is meant to be a national newspaper has taken my breath away.



NEVER have I read something so inflammatory, something designed to create hatred, in a world that has already experienced so much hate, this front page is not only irresponsible, it is inciting racial hatred.

Every day recently, I have seen posts regarding muslim people being attacked, just because they are muslim. Attacked because of their religious beliefs? Because newspapers, and I use the word news, loosely,  have whipped people up into a frenzy and made the actions of a few terrorists into something that people who follow a whole religion must be held accountable for.

This headline, this violent and shocking headline, is based on a poll, say The Sun Newspaper. AN EXCLUSIVE SHOCK POLL, shrieks the headline. I am going to stand up here and now and say that The Sun newspaper is talking ABSOLUTE BOLLOCKS.

It is in their interests as a rag to whip up frenzies, I take it that this year there were no False Widow spiders or foxes eating babies that they could get people het up over, so they are going to take a peaceful religion, and make it so that people see them, they freeze in fear.

The world right now DOES NOT NEED The Sun to give people excuses to attack people, and that is happening throughout Britain right now. People are abusing Muslims, both verbally and physically, and these people are doing it partly because they have been incited to do so by rags such as The Sun.


What happens when someone is killed? Will The Sun admit that they have blood on their hands? They are MEDIA TERRORISTS, recruiting through their front pages and inciting violence.

I cannot stand by and watch as these front pages happen, I refuse to let them go by unchecked. If the Muslim community is being told that they should stand up and say that they do not condone terrorism. Then we should ALSO stand up and say that THE SUN IS NOT TALKING FOR US.

What are your thoughts on the front page of The Sun today?

Let me know.

  1. They are talking shite about the current issue... but we have had an issue in my home with false widow spiders. Keep vacuuming the sods out of the back door frame.

    1. Totally talking shit, I read a great article in The Independent today about WHY The Sun are actually talking shit. Will try to find the link.

      Re those spiders. KILL THEM WITH FIRE

  2. Couldn't agree more. The Sun is disgusting and vile. This is absolutely unnecessary and knowingly inciting hatred, anger and spreading untruths. It makes me feel sick.

    Great post, Kellie. The new design is fantastic too. X

    1. It is absolutely vile what they have done. SOME people will be waiting for this kind of excuse to lash out and hurt people, this will be their excuse. Makes me absolutely sick. Surely this counts as incitement of racial hatred?

  5. PREACH! I get so wound up by this sort of 'journalism'. No context, no thorough research, no alternative view. My grandparents are in their mid 80s and sadly the right wing press get through to them. They're all about no immigration, bring back national service etc because they believe in the media and they don't use the internet to get more information - many people just use the news as gospel and that is so, so dangerous. As to the commenter above: Do one.

  6. Absolutely agree - it's utterly vile and completely racist. People were more fair to Germans/people of German origin (like the flipping Queen, for example!) living in the UK during WWII than they are to Muslims now. It's appalling and it's playing right into terrorists' hands. Well done for saying so - great post.

    1. Thanks Claire, It is scary isn't it? People always want someone to blame.

  7. The Koran states numerous times throughout that Muslims can and MUST lie to non believers to help spread the word of Islam and to win a holy war (which is what's happening right now) google it. This, unlike most you read on the Internet is true. Gotta ask yourself what implications this fact has when listening to anything they say... In your search for the truth, dare you write an article on that? I didn't think so.

    1. THEY? As in Us and them? Divided? Really? You will blame a whole religion for the actions of a few? And I mean a very few people?

      It's the equivalent of holding every baptist held responsible for the actions of The Westboro baptist church.

  8. How is this allowed to be in print? I thought there were laws against inciting hatred? Absolutely disgusting headline, makes me so sad for society.

    1. I am interested to know if they have broken the law too. Surely someone who understands this part of the law is looking into this.

  9. It's like watching the news with my dad. Hold my breath and try not to draw his attention before he says something ridiculous. There are a lot of arguments in my house at the money. The thing is he is the kind of person who will read this and take it as fact.
