Serious Irony


For the most part, I shy away from political speak, but I discovered a very interesting comment from a writer for The Sun in London The Sun by VivaAntarcticawhich should make us all stop and think:

Wild about Harry [by Mark Steyn]

So in cities across the western world people yell “Jews to the gas!” and “Jews must die!” and it’s no big deal, not least in the British media.

But Prince Harry, at a private event, refers jocularly to his comrade in arms Ahmed as “our little Paki friend” and everyone goes bananas.

Is it true that the serious irony here goes mostly unnoticed??what irony by krispy
