If you edited out Aliyev and replaced him with Poroshenko or even Zelensky, would this BBC bimbo’s brain overheat into meltdown?

Did Crimea or the Donbass republics engage in any ethnic-cleansing of pro-Kiev Ukrainians (if they managed to find any)?

No….so the analogy is moot.

Notice how she’s so concerned over Armenia’s fears of ethnic-cleansing by the Azerbaijanis but when it comes to the Donbass, oh – it’s just Putin propaganda.

Before calling the interviewer a “bimbo” – could it be that she didn’t hit back because she KNEW there was no valid argument against what Aliyev was saying, because he was telling the truth. Could it be that she chose to preserve her dignity, rather than make herself look ridiculous like all these other so-called journalists who scream back spoon-fed propaganda slogans, knowing that she risked her job by not doing so? Just saying.

You’re very generous Helga. Those of us who live in the U.K. know these people well enough now, to understand how they operate. She probably does have a view, but new rules at the BBC state that interviewers are not allowed to air their personal views. They have been banned from commenting one way or the other on Twitter and other social media since last year. The new Director General of the Beeb, Tim Davie, put that into effect upon his appointment.

I don’t know how the BBC works internally, nor did I say that she is NOT a bimbo, I was only reacting to the immediate conclusion that any female is automatically assumed to be a “bimbo” (rather than just be called mistaken, or ignorant) unless she overwhelms us with her brilliance. I also couched it in “Could it be….?” instead of IS. My comment wasn’t inspired by generosity, but I was questioning language based on presumptions based on prejudices. (In spite of the fact that I am not one of the “woke” cancel culture dems.)

Calling people names like “bimbo” or “racist” or “hater” is just pejorative propaganda designed to relieve the user of the necessity of concrete descriptions.

I don’t even know what a “bimbo” is. What’s a “bimbo?”

It typically refers to youngish females who get by just on looks and little savy, say of the Dana Perino variety (e.g. blond bimbo) but I think it should be more universally applied even to men and the full spectrum of hair and skin colors, in the name of ‘inclusivity’. 😉

Just to make sure I was right, I googled it and Google agrees with what I thought “bimbo” meant: “Bimbo is a slang term for a conventionally attractive, sexualized, naive, and unintelligent woman. The term was originally used in the United States as early as 1919 for an unintelligent or brutish man. … It is often used to describe women who are blond, have curvaceous figures, heavy makeup, and revealing clothing.” That’s exactly what I thought, with emphasis on “native and unintelligent.” Assuming that blonds are bimbos is not only sexist but racist into the bargain. I find it highly offensive.

The interviewer’s personality should not make difference.

But of course we are all subject to making judgements.

For example:

“fat cow”

“hard bitch”

“ugly”

“social just warrior”

“sold out”

“rude”

“aggressive” etc.

Women have to deal with a long history of being looked down upon with disdain. Did you know that when the typewriter was invented, it was invented for men because it was assumed that women weren’t intelligent enough to operate the machine. I don’t recall how often I heard the phrase that “women just can’t think logically.” So when I hear a highly educated professional women referred… Read more »

No, I think she was reluctant to an absolute condemnation because she was caught between a rock and a hard place, condemn or console. British foreign policy would condemn Armenia were it useful but that it doesn’t want to console Erdogan’s policies yet it would condemn Azerbaijan but it doesn’t want to console Armenia and possibly its pro-Russian inclinations.

Or……it could simply be that once Biden recognized the Armenian genocide (for pos. the same rock and hard place reasons), the BBC simply and obediently followed suit, no independent introspection required.

Biden recognized the Armenian genocide simply to draw impetus from Armenia’s potential drift towards Russia. Nothing more nor less.

I am more inclined to think the US doesn’t much care one or the other what Armenians think. Raising the Armenian “genocide” from the dead after all this time was nothing more than a threat to Erdogan to not get too uppity with the West or else….

….and by the way, that action by Biden is revealing of the general American character to stick their noses and two cents in at any time and anywhere on the planet. They had no role in resolving that conflict and I assume, no role in instigating it but they just can’t help themselves from butting in where they have absolutely nothing to contribute and in fact purposely kept a low profile, in public anyway.

But their poor little exceptional selves just can’t help themselves, can they?

FACT, events in a foreign land thousands of miles away from Britain, contrary to popular belief, are no concerns of the Brits. The only time the Brits concern themselves in such affairs, is to control or guide events to benefit themselves. History is full of such examples from the Brits. They are in no position, to point the finger at any other nation, they are NOT squeeky clean.Let’s not forget their genocide attack against Iraq ?

When I lived in the UK, BBC channels were commercial free. Channels with commercials earned money that way, and the licence fees for the BBC brought in money that enabled them to remain ad-free. I’d rather pay for a licence than suffer the stupid brainless ads interrupting programmes every few minutes, that’s for sure. We have a few cinemas where I live that show ad-free films on Tuesdays for a fee of a few dollars. Definitely a plus.

It was a racist insult when adult Black men were addressed as “boy.” I would consider it an insult to be called boy if I were a white man. As I am a woman, if someone addressed me as boy, I would advise them to see an optometrist to get a new prescription, or else perhaps that they are so brainwashed by the “woke” gender obsessed democrats that they are totally confused, and I would advise them to seek counseling.

The fact is, both sides in that conflict have legitimate gripes and maybe even casus belli. The interesting part is how the BBC instantly once again antagonistically takes a side to promote some agenda or other that comes from on high. Objectivity is dead. Journalism just mouths it in its dying breath. Wars start this way, in case no one’s noticed in her neck of the woods.
