This guy IS the left. He has a painting of Lenin he commissioned above his bed. He also has a large communist start tattoo on his chest. This makes the claim that he in some way believes the Nazi BS even more stupid.
I remember a time before the left had the whip hand. When watching the Fresh Prince of Bel Air move from Philidelphia to live with Uncle Phil was nothing more than entertainment, and a woman flamethrowing an Alien Queen bitch on LV-426 was fantastic. Go back a little further and we have John Cleese goosestepping through the dining room, and a little further still, Mel Brookes brought us Springtime for Hitler.
Nobody gave a damn that Will Smith was black or Sigourney Weaver had a vagina.
So what changed?
David Goodhart describes it in his book called The Road To Somewhere as a conflict between the anywhere and the somewhere. 'He argues that the key faultline in Britain and elsewhere now separates those who come from Somewhere-rooted in a specific place or community, usually a small town or in the countryside, socially conservative, often less educated - and those who could come from Anywhere: footloose, often urban, social liberal and often university educated.'
He has some great points to make but the Guardian will never tell you the full story. For that, go back to the days before Alien and consider Marx, Foucault and Derrida.
Marx was a fat smelly **** who had years to talk about the evil of capitalism but died in debt to his butcher. That was the least of his crimes against humanity.
Fast forward to today and a joke that would have caused no offence twenty years ago is now a criminal offence. The rampant left will argue that he deserved it and use the minutiae of current legislation to explain why the values have changed for the better and how we are living in a more just society because we are stamping out racism.
In this case, Police Scotland had no victim. They asked the Scottish Council of Jewish Communities to make a complaint and then invited the press to witness his arrest. They got their man.
And then screwed him for two years.
They denied him legal aid because of his girlfriends' wealth and then called his girlfriend as a hostile witness.
Anyway, he has informed the Sheriff that he does not accept the verdict and will appeal. Our society is being destroyed by a vocal left wing middle class that has assumed the role of masters and will attack with a religious fervour anything that they disagree with. It isn't the Anywhere or Somewhere. It is the progressives that Orwell spoke about when he described them as.
'They seek progress like bluebottles to a dead cat.'
