If you think back a little bit you’ll remember that Peter Reynolds managed to make a splash in the press by appearing in the Jewish Chronicle. Reporter Marcus Dysch interviewed Peter in response to his blog ranting about “evil Jews”, which he amended to “evil Israelis” at some point, and making various other statements of a dubious nature about the BBC running Diary of Anne Frank.
Here is the original article where Peter vehemently denies any anti-Semitic undertones, or overt ringing chords, and asserts that one of his best friends is Jewish. You couldn’t make it up. He’s like Stephen Colbert and his endless collection of badly Photoshopped pictures he uses as evidence that he is not racist. It is a laughable cliché in modern times to say that your single friend of some given ethnicity is a license to make bigoted statements.
Sadly Peter Reynolds recently fell out of the pages of a terribly dated, and badly written, English novel. He suffers from a condition which causes him to be manifestly unaware of the state of race relations in the 21st Century, and as such his thermostat for woefully offensive speech is completely miscalibrated. It makes you wonder if there is a faded Polaroid floating around somewhere in a shoebox that features Peter in blackface, mugging for the camera wearing bib overalls and sporting a wedge of watermelon in one hand, and a bottle of malt liquor in the other.
Remember, his oldest friend is a “Jet-black Jamaican”. He can do that kind of thing and it would all be in fun.
Life isn’t all race-baiting blogs and gross misinterpretations of commercial culture as a homosexual conspiracy. It seems news of the lawsuit against Sarah McCulloch has reached the desk of the previously mentioned journalist Marcus Dysch, and he’s done a small write-up in the Jewish Chronicle about Peter and his failed lawsuit. I’ll let you read it for yourself. I can’t help but hearing a somewhat smug and satisfied tone in the article, but perhaps I’m imposing my own wry amusement on the text.
I suppose Peter will be suing the Jewish Chronicle now. I understand he filed a PCC complaint against them for the first article about his blog, and subsequent denial of the content he provided. I also understand that complaint was summarily rejected as baseless. I’m sure the courts will be infinitely more sympathetic. It isn’t like they’ve been previously tone-deaf to Peter’s self-satisfied declarations of white victimhood, right?
