    you don’t need Stephen Fry to make yourself aware of the Daily Mail and what it’s editorial content stands for.
    if you do then that suggests you lack any insight or objectivity as to how the world works. you probably look to Russell Brand for moral guidance too.

    Good to see another victory for the Daily Mail they have got the governing parties to pay Joan Edwards’ bequest to the Treasury – even Polly Toynbee was complimentary.

    Jesse’s performances publicly refuted the Nazi ideology that Aryans were naturally superior, a claimed superiority used to justify denying equal rights to all humanity.

    Everything, including resistance to evil autocracy, begins with an idea.

    But did not stop them from attempting to carry out “their Ideals”. Yes you can go to the Olympics and show solidarity to those being oppressed, but all of that will simply be swept under the carpet and normal service resumed by Russia.

    We have the entire history of the Human race to draw upon, and it tells us if we appease, other get oppressed or worse. It’s a lesson our political masters conveniently forget.

    Well yes, but do you know which head of state refused to meet Jesse Owens? (I got the answer from QI!)

    Anyway, I haven’t seen this for a while:

    cut and paste but:-
    “Any notion that the Germans were “embarrassed” because of victories by non-Whites at the Berlin Games is ridiculous. Jesse Owens is very prominently featured in Olympia, the official German documentary of the Games. Leni Riefenstahl’s film masterwork also devotes great attention to many other non-Whites, including outstanding Japanese athletes. The same holds true in the deluxe, semi-official German picture book commemorating the Games, Die Olympischen Spiele 1936, released by the Cigaretten-Bilderdienst. Jesse Owens is pictured seven times in this book – more than any other athlete – and is admiringly referred to as “the fastest in the world.” A large picture in the book records the chiseling of the victors’ names in granite at the stadium – and singled out in this picture is: “Owens U.S.A.”

    Despite the remarkable achievements of Jesse Owens, and of other athletes of all races, Germany did capture more gold medals than any other nation, thus “winning” the Olympics – a fact usually ignored in discussions of the 1936 Games.”
    From The Journal of Historical Review, Spring 1984 (Vol. 5, No. 1), pages 123-125
    It is really simple Boycott the games Russians ask “why are our games rubbish?” Putin looks like a fool . don’t boycott the games and Putin looks like a strong leader and gets the message the world don’t care about the civil rights of his citizens or indeed those of our own athletes and visitors to Russia.

    It is really simple Boycott the games Russians ask “why are our games rubbish?” Putin looks like a fool

    Really? Russia win 75% of the medals. Putin thinks Russia is god-like in sports events and crows continually to all who’ll listen (including his own country).

    Fry could have made his point much better if he hadn’t reverted to the playground equivalent of “and your mum smells” (albeit in a much cleverer way) at the end of the riposte.

    Have there been any fresh developments in Fry versus the Volkischer Beobachter today?

    There must be some kind of pun involving the name Fry. The obvious one is inappropriate. How about calling the Mail’s anti-Fry militia the Fry-korps?

    I bet they’d get all turned on by the riding breeches, and above all, the discipline.

    I suspect they are having a huge meeting at Racist Towers, AKA Daily Mail, with a plan to destroy Fry.

    It’s not that obvious to me. Give us another clue.

    Arbeit macht ………..

    Not appropriate or funny.

    Calling Dacre’s henchmen the fry-korps does tickle me, though.
