LABOUR MP Dawn Butler has bizarrely claimed that Britain’s healthcare system has been experimenting on black people, in a video that was intended to promote the Covid-19 jab.
Appearing in a video through far-left channel Byline TV – an online media site part of ‘The BylineTimes’, of which the son of racist Oswald Mosley is a shareholder – the outspoken MP showed herself receiving the jab… but not before spreading the bizarre and damaging claim.
“When I got my text to say ‘book your appointment for the vaccine’, I’m not gonna lie, I was a little bit hesitant; probably an accumulation of everything I’ve been dealing with over the last year – the quite legitimate concerns from black people who have been at times experimented on by the healthcare system.”
The press regulator funded by Max Mosley’s family trust has ruled against a website in which the multimillionaire privacy campaigner is listed as a shareholder. Probably an accumulation of everything I’ve been dealing with over the last year – the quite legitimate concerns from black people who have been at times experimented on by the healthcare system”.
Butler provided no evidence to support her highly disrespectful and dangerous claim, before going on to show herself receiving the Covid-19 vaccination.
Butler’s decision to go on Byline News is a highly controversial one.
The website, run by far-left Peter Jukes, who has been slammed for spreading fake news, has previously breached standards related to its coverage of child abuse allegations against Sir Edward Heath, and for fuelling unfounded conspiracy theories.
Impress, the state-recognised regulator found that Byline had infringed accuracy standards in its article covering the police investigation into the former prime minister, and for making false claims.
The Byline Times recently found itself embroiled in another fake news scandal after being caught intentionally lying to protect a racist university teacher.
After VoteWatch exposed RE lecturer Aysha Khamon for having openly called Calvin Robinson a ‘house n*gro’, and attacking others over the colour of their skin, the BylineTimes released an article claiming that no evidence existed to support the claim that Khamon had personally written the tweets.
However, upon being shown clear proof – from Aysha’s own account – of the lecturer confessing to having written the disgusting tweet and sending harassing messages, Byline’s Peter Jukes refused to correct the fake news article and branded journalists covering the racist’s tweet as being ‘far-right’.
Jukes – who Guido referred to as a ‘tin-foil hatted Twitter conspiracy theorist who makes Carole Cadwalladr look sensible’ – recently embarked on spreading another fabricated conspiracy theory; claiming that the journalists involved were part of a ‘network’ of alt-right/far-right’ organisations.
To date, Jukes and his fake news site are yet to issue an apology, correct the article, or explain why they not only defended a racist, but continue to provide a platform for the promotion of disinformation.
