A moment on hitler parody

By johnboy - 11 February 2014 40

With Giulia Jones and Jeremy Hanson appointing themselves the last arbiters of taste for performances they haven’t seen and calling for drastic sanction against people only remotely involved I thought in my capacity as a private citizen I’d like to throw my own 2c in via the great Charlie Chaplin.

Damn straight Johnboy. People should be able to say whatever they want without regard to the feelings of others, especially if they’re Jews.

Pretty amusing coming from you. A look at the moderated comments from this site indicates that you yourself censored many comments over the years that did not breach this site’s Terms &Conditions (at least no more than you yourself regularly did).

What we really need is a local production of The Producers – “Springtime for Hitler and Germany……”

The Producers had plenty of context, of course, and a Jewish production team … hardly something you could compare with Jorian’s little mistake.

So having “a Jewish production team” would make it OK? So Jewish people have some special exemption to make Nazi parodies that arent funny or whatever your feigned complaint about this is? No other group has any buy in on that? Have you discussed with ooh lets say the Russians? Or the Polish? The “subtle racism of lowered expectations” heh? Nice.

I am actually getting a better idea of what is offensive though so, well, thanks!

Just waiting for the usual “Nazi’s Nazi’s Nazi’s everywhere and you are all bad Goyim’s” argument from the local menorah lighting, lightbulb fearing, luddites.

One inevitable problem with posting bona fide anti-Nazi activist satire in defence of Little Miss “Eva Braun” Nazi Burlesqui, is that the anti-Semites will come out with this sort of race/religion hate.

Not sure if you are agreeing with me or calling me anti-semetic for not getting my point (use your inner voice to read it in the tone of Nathan Lane, it may seem funnier then). Either way, This whole shebang is a storm in a tea cup and really does not deserve all the attention that it is getting. PPL really go over the top with things like this, it’s almost like they feel that they are expected to chuck a wobbly when the cotton wool comes off and we get a little less PC in public.

Just don’t mention the war – I mentioned it once( but I think I got away with it).

On topic – I hope that one day before I die that I see a politician in opposition decide not to fake moral outrage over something the current government has done that no reasonable person actually gives a shit about.

+1 BUT

This is the moral high ground of all political parties nowadays. The Government does something, the Opposition ridicules. The Opposition suggests a change/policy or idea and the Government screams about how out of touch they are.

No winners on either side. Move along.

Which is why you need to abandon the political parties that behave like that, and vote for the parties or the individuals who don’t. The adversarial system of Government and Opposition is broken – unity governments should be the way of the future.

Has Mr Hanson “concluded” though? Oh the huge manatee.

The tag should read ‘antisemitism’, not ‘antisemetism’.

Ah, that’s almost like the old days…Correcting JB’s spelling. If it was his spelling.

Interestingly Chaplin later said he would never have made the film if he had known at the time the true extent of the Nazi atrocities.
