Frogs not racist (any more)

Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

THERE must be some­thing about show­biz booze that turns celebri­ties into foam­ing Jew-baiters.

Mel Gib­son fa­mously came over all Joseph Goebbels af­ter a drop too much and last week the pre­pos­ter­ous nin­com­poop John Gal­liano was fined for an anti-semitic tirade in Paris.

Fash­ion de­signer (ie. pro­fes­sional ho­mo­sex­u­al­ist) Gal­liano was guilty of bad tim­ing, if noth­ing else. For the French have not al­ways been the most ro­bust de­fend­ers of the Jewish peo­ple.

They don’t men­tion it much these days, but not that long ago the Frog cops were mer­rily pitch­fork­ing Jews into trains head­ing for Auschwitz.

Gal­liano wouldn’t have been a crim­i­nal back then. They would have made him chief of po­lice.
