One of the big wigs of the hippie movement, which morphed into today’s Progressives, learns exactly how much tolerance Progressives have
(Fox News) Legendary singer/songwriter Bob Dylan has been charged with “public insult and inciting hate” in France following a complaint by a Croatian group based in that country over remarks made in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine.
Dylan, 72, was notified that he was under judicial investigation last month, when he was in Paris to receive the prestigious Legion d’Honneur award from the French government. Paris prosecutor’s office spokeswoman Agnes Thibault-Lecuivre told the Associated Press Tuesday that the charges were filed in mid-November.
The interview in question was published by Rolling Stone in September 2012. At one point, Dylan said that racism was holding America back, saying “Blacks know that some whites didn’t want to give up slavery – that if they had their way, they would still be under the yoke, and they can’t pretend they don’t know that. If you got a slave master or (a Ku Klux) Klan (member) in your blood, blacks can sense that. That stuff lingers to this day. Just like Jews can sense Nazi blood and the Serbs can sense Croatian blood.”
It was a pretty stupid statement, but, hey, people are allowed to say stupid things….except in Liberal World, where the Progressives do not allow any unapproved speech. The Council Of Croats In France were Offended, so they filed a complaint. They aren’t interested in money, they just want an apology, so, the use the far far left appendages of the Government of France to attempt to force said apology, because, you know, their feewings were hurt. Really, this is all about the tolerance of the Left.
