New Zealand comedian: “Hitler had a right to roast the Jews”

Comedian David Fane resigned on Sunday after claiming Hitler had a right to “roast” the Jews.

It is yet not political correct to defend Hitler and the Holocaust. Not even if you are a comedian like David Fane.

A New Zealand actor-comedian on Sunday apologized and resigned from his radio and television jobs for making anti-Semitic and homophobic jokes at a media event in Auckland last week.

Last Wednesday, in a three-minute spot in which he was told to roast the bosses of advertising agencies at the dinner, David Fane, 43 quipped: “I want to eat you, but I won’t because I don’t want to get HIV.”

“Would you roast a HIV person?” he asked his audience.

“You’d roast them because they’re expendable,” he continued, “like the Jews. Hitler had a right, you know.”

Fane’s comments sparked outrage among the local Jewish community. The president of the New Zealand Jewish Council, Stephen Goodman told the Herald on Sunday, “It is a very anti-Semitic statement. While we wish to preserve the rights of freedom of speech, he went over the line.”

My comment:

There is some good news, and some bad news in this story.

The bad news is that senseless people defend the Holocaust, even in New Zealand.

The good news is that there are still responsible people around, who hold neo-Nazi’s accountable.

  1. Please explain what these people who hold anti semetics accountable DO to hold them accountable? Slap them on the wrist? Shame them? So the worm resigned, he is still the same pro Holocost filth walking around eminating his seething for people he did not know, did not care to know or know about and does not care about now!Along with Jews who else does this maggot loath? He walks about breathing air and taking up space for no other reason than hatred! So please tell me, what exactly did anyone do to hold him accountable? I will tell you who will and does hold him accountable and that is Almighty and most High God, The God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob and ME!

    1. Dear Gracie

      Shalom, and thanks for being so active.

      You asked:

      My reply:

      The very fact that this man had to resign. In Nazi-Germany, this comedian would have been promoted to uberstumbanfuhrer in the SS.

      In Germany and Austria, Holocaust denial is a criminal offense, punishable with imprisonment. In the rest of the free and democratic World, holocaust denial is not a nice remark for have on your CV. It means full stop.
