Moron or douchebag
I think Von Trier’s comments were ridiculous and shameless attention-grabbing, but it seems a bit ironic to ban speech in the name of free speech.
I didn’t find super much offensive about his comments.
Woah, he tried to understand someone who is often misunderstood.
He didn’t say anything evil, in my opinion.
I think having genocide as part of your agenda is plenty understood. Please, do not make excuses for Hitler.
There is nothing excusable about Hitler, but it’s interesting how Hitler has become the singular icon of evil. If Von Trier made the same comments about Stalin, people would have taken offense, but it wouldn’t have been nearly as big a deal, and he definitely wouldn’t have been banned.
Also people as bad as Hitler from more than 100 years ago are icons of national pride.
Von Trier is a genius.
Let’s try keep this discussion going in the main Von Trier thread: Moron or Douchebag?
