Frankie Boyle is not a racist: he just picks on soft targets like Jews and the disabled

FRANKIE Boyle says the Mirror libelled him when it wrote on 19 July 2011:

“Racist comedian Frankie Boyle could soon be returning to TV despite upsetting thousands of viewers with his sick jokes.”

Boyle says he was defamed by the Mirror when it said he’d been “forced to quit” the BBC comedy show Mock The Week.

His barrister, David Sherborne, told the jury at the High Court, London:

“Saying ‘vile’ or ‘offensive’, or his material is ‘vile’ or ‘offensive’, is one thing. He realises that that goes with the territory, so to speak. But accusing him of being a racist is an entirely different matter…You can call him ‘offensive’, you can call him ‘tasteless’. That’s fine. But he is not racist.”

Sun Lamabasts Mong Faced Ricky Gervais But Employs Down’s Syndrome Hating Frankie Boyle

WHEN Ricky Gervais pulled his mong face and launched a one-man mission to change the use of a word that causes offence, the Sun was deeply upset. In “My View“. Sam Carlisle told Sun readers:

MY daughter’s friend Jamie, eight, is a “mong”. Jamie’s Down’s makes him so destructive his family have replaced their TV eight times in three years. Jamie, eight, gets up before his exhausted parents, removes his nappy and poos on the floor. His mum recently heard someone whisper “mong” in a shop. She broke down… It’s not the harmless put-down Gervais claims.

A smart comedian choosing to use the word puts attitudes back decades. Does Ricky remember Fiona Pilkington, who set fire to herself and her disabled daughter, Francecca Hardwick, after years of abuse from a gang? So Ricky, try using the word ‘mong’ in Jamie’s mum’s company. Hilarious.

Might this be the same Sun which employs Frankie Boyle to write a weekly column? Boyle is the TV comic who makes jokes about children with Down’s Syndrome?

Sharon and Keiron Smith were at one of his shows. She told him: “My daughter has Down’s syndrome and I’m very upset.”

To which he replied:

“This is my last tour. I don’t give a **** what people think.”

Frankie Boyle Gives Racists A Good Laugh: But Not Emily Parr

FOR those of you who missed the racist tones of Frankie Boyle’s joke about Katie Price’s black son Harvey Price trying to rape her, preferring to focus on the fact that Jordan’s son is disabled, the BBC-approved Jerry Sadowitz lite will now use the words nigger and Paki in his act.

A Channel 4 spokesman will now explain the joke. Saying nigger and Paki does not represent a return to the 1970s when comics would get laughs with such words because Boyle is deeply clever. Not once did he say, “Oh, deary-deary-me” and wobble his head. He never stuck out his lips for the black joke nor used the phrases “spade” or “Brixton briefcase”. Know that:

“This cutting edge comedy is clearly intended to ridicule and satirise the use of these words – Frankie Boyle was not endorsing them.”
