Yes I completely agree with the OP, poor old Rolf and Jimmy are being used as scapegoats.
Unfortunately, in the PC White World, everything has been turned on its bottom, particularly in England.
The problem is, they are enforcing 2014 standards on 1960s/70s behaviour, a behaviour that was quite excepted and often encouraged by people......yes
women. This period was the days of the teen and preteen groupies. Girls throwing themselves at stars, movie stars, singers, bands even the roadies got
some action in those days.
Free love and peace of the late 60s California and London, sex with anyone and everyone, open air concerts with people stripping down to nudity,
having a bath in a lake, having sex in front of everyone......yes the good old days.
As a teenager in the 70s, I loved Benny Hill, chasing around bikini clad nymphs, patting them on the bottom, trying to steal a kiss against their
wishes....this was normal, and was the same as from the Film media's advent in the 1910s.
In the 60s I delighted in the Three Stooges, banging each other on the head, poking the eyes, ripping hair out, trying to steal a kiss from a cute
flapper. And the Abbot and Costello movies...the same, and the Marx Brothers Movies, Now if you want an example of lewd and ranchy.....cant go past
the Marx bros.
ALL of these examples, would come under the broad stroke of modern day Wowserism shown by this current witchhunt in the UK.
What about another popular UK show of the 1970s...Love Thy Neighbour, now is was fine and dandy for Eddie Booth to call his African Jamaican neighbour
" Sambo and Nignog" and for the Sambo to call Eddie a "White Honky", because everyone watching the show, knew it was harmless humour and showed
the bigotry of BOTH sides of humanity.
But heaven help me if I travel to London and ask why there are so many Sambos and Nignogs over there and where are all the White Honkys.
But in the 70s this was harmless slanging......Something the English and Aussies did rather well.
Maybe the rest of the World never understood.....Tho the Americans do it now I notice.
This current witchhunt is, Complete PC bunk and rubbish, should be banned.
Of course it wont stop at this, soon they will be jailing everybody who has a Playboy magazine or other media...because, you had the Thought,
therefore you did it.......almost shades of the Puritans rising again.
Yet, it seems fine that they can feature a lovely young actress, who still looks 15yo mind you, to strip off on a popular TV show, showing all her
fine bits, get raped etc etc.....all to the delight of Art.....but that is OK isnt it.
I'm referring of course to Game Of Thrones......which I understand is filmed in England with English actors.......
Yes the Irony.
