Princess Michael – race relations not her strongest area
Dear American friends,
Im actually rather troubled. Last week, this delightful gentleman was jailed for desecrating a Jewish cemetery. Quite right too, for we in Britain cherish our multicultural and tolerant society.
Or so I thought.
In the last month, there has been such an onslaught of anti-Semitism from the upper echelons of society that you could be forgiven for thinking that our aforementioned graveyard-centric friend was merely following the example set by his betters. This recent glut seems to have started with dear Prince Harry who, as previously described on the WOW Report and pretty much everywhere else, attended a party in Nazi regalia. Everyone called for an apology. He refused. Still, his father did ground him for a while, so thats OK.
Meanwhile, the Labour Party, our esteemed government, were preparing their campaign for the next General Election, expected this summer. Their first shots: posters depicting two senior Jewish members of the main rival party as either very non-kosher flying pigs or as Fagin, an evil Dickensian, anti-Semitic caricature. Apologies trickled out reluctantly, and the posters were withdrawn. Eventually.
Next, Londons upstanding mayor, Ken Livingstone, compares on record a reporter he knew to be Jewish to a German war criminal, a concentration camp guard for having the audacity to ask him a question as he left a public reception paid for by the London tax payer. Everyone even Prime Minister Tony Blair called for an apology. He refused. And keeps refusing.
And at the end of last week, the very royal Princess Michael of Kent takes up the baton. You remember her shes that charming lady who told a group of African-American diners in New York that they should remember the colonies when they dared to be noisy in the same restaurant as her. In an interview with a German newspaper, she defended Prince Harrys Nazi costume, explaining that the only reason there was any fuss at all was because of the ownership structure of the press, meaning, of course, that the press is owned by Jews.
Now, to my knowledge not one national newspaper in the UK is Jewish owned. But even if every newspaper in the world was owned and run exclusively by rabbis, that would still be an outrageous comment, worthy of the Fuhrer himself. In fact, I think its as bad as kicking over headstones.
Sometimes, its hard to believe that we are living in the 21st Century, and that we commemorated the liberation of Auschwitz less than a month ago. Still, at least we have the Royals for guidance.
