Re: Jimmy Savile

Actually saw a tweet earlier that said "Why should I pay Licence fee money to a bunch of paedophile protectors?" Yeah, because that's exactly what happened. Jimmy Savile was shagging kids in front of his bosses and they decided to keep it secret, not even kept it secret but defended him to their very last breaths... Oh, wait.
Jimmy Savile must've been helped by willing accomplices around him and intimidated people who couldn't speak out at time, but most other people in the BBC seemed to be ignorant enablers, being taken in by his goofy facade and keeping him around because he was a successful family entertainer famed for selflessly raising money for charity and working around hospitals.

The BBC today can share some blame by allowing a sack of shit the size of Mt. Everest to blow up in a uncontrolled manner (by cancelling the Newsnight probe, going forward with their gushing Jimmy Savile tribute, and unwisely allowing their ITV rivals an opening to deliver a huge blow with their own Savile exposure documentary). But Jimmy Savile seemed to have had a talent at running rings around many people anyway (in his autobiography he boasted about manipulating and blackmailing local corrupt cops back in his 1950s dancehall days).

Jimmy Savile, like too many other successful psychopaths/sociopaths/criminal narcissists who are given a wide remit in a powerful organisation, has left the BBC in disarray and spread a lot of poison about.

If the BBC gets dismantled, then Jimmy Savile has won: two charities founded and operated in his name have already been shut down.

It's easy to point fingers in hindsight, it's easy to believe that people must have known. But basically what you have is what appeared to be an eccentric bloke, doing good work for charity and had rumours spread about him... just rumours that happen to be true.
Then you get the tinfoil hatted nutters, who for years widely spread the Savile rumours, getting vindicated by most of the Savile rumours being officially confirmed true. They also claim other crazy shit, denouncing Jimmy Savile as a high priest of the Illuminati and a child pimp to global elites.

One other unconfirmed rumour is that Savile also liked fucking dead bodies.

Re: Jimmy Savile

Yeah, the trouble is any shit thrown at Saville now, true or false, will stick and and sadly whilst I’m sure the majority of those coming forward to say they were abused are genuine, there will be a number of people who aren’t and who are coming forward because they’re attention seeking (the old Munchausen syndrome) or because they smell money.

Whatever the BBC's failings on this, the NHS, police, government, the royal family, hell even the pope, were also conned by this man, so all I hope is that the BBC isn't used as a scapegoat.

But yeah, not showing the original Newsnight report was a hell of an own goal.

How was Saville part of the "establishment"?

For a B-list celebrity he punched way above his weight with his unlikely connections with the rich and powerful. He comically boasted about connections with the IRA and other crime syndicates.

Re: Jimmy Savile

The shark has been well and truly jumped on this one - now he's a necrophiliac as well:

Re: Jimmy Savile

^I mentioned this gruesome rumour earlier. And if there's a serious eye witnesses' testament about Savile molesting a brain damaged patient, that's only a few steps away from being a corpse. And there's other rumours that he was way too interested in watching over dying patients...

Jimmy Savile resembles Patrick Bateman from American Psycho, sometimes blurting out confessions in public. Not only did Savile on HIGNFY and Louis Theroux documentary boast about being "feared in every girl's school in the country", he also alludes to necrophilia in an old Q Magazine:

In a 1990 interview with Q magazine, Savile, who died last year, admitted he enjoyed being alone with dead people. He said: ‘You can look after somebody, be alone with somebody, who has lived a whole lifetime, and I’m just saying goodbye and looking after him. That is a privilege and an honour. ‘Some people get hold of the fact that Jim likes looking after cadavers and say, “Aha, Jim’s a necrophiliac”. I’m not a necrophiliac.’
Link

It's oddly similar to his thinly disguised admittance and misdirection about being a paedophile towards the end of the Louis Theroux documentary...

Literally the only place they can go from here to keep up the increase in revelations is for a shepherd to come forward as a witness to Savile banging the flock...

Psychologically, they're very different deviations, though...

Re: Jimmy Savile

Jimmy Savile was incapable of maintaining a proper, level relationship with mature women, partially caused by his highly dominating and abusive sounding mother, and his mental fixation on his mother was so absolute (he lacked empathy with everybody else) he could only reliably get intercourse with bodies that won't have the same hang ups (hospitalised 11 year old girls, 14 year old special needs boys, and the occasional good looking corpse). Just some quick armchair psychoanalysis there.
