Kelvin MacKenzie ludicrously claims white men cannot be terrorists and shows he has plainly forgotten the IRA
Kelvin MacKenzie will best be remembered for having colluded with the now convicted paedophile Max Clifford to create the headline “Freddie Starr ate my hamster” during his tenure as editor of The Sun, but now, in a column for the same paper, he’s again peddling nonsense.
In his column on Monday, MacKenzie – who once declared “I want to get the Lonsdale Belt for [being] vile and personally rude to as many people as possible” – launched into a tirade after being questioned by a security guard at an airport in Dubai.
Plainly furious and plainly sharing his desire to become the Michael Savage of Britain, MacKenzie’s column featured the headline: “Don’t waste time frisking me as white (and older) guys are not the terrorists”. He justified this by saying he could not possibly be a terrorist because of his colour and age and then concluded with the comment: “Stopping law-abiding, non-violent white people at airports is a waste of time and an insult to everybody’s intelligence”.
With the aim of causing yet more outrage, he nonsensically added: “Everybody knows… that if a bomb is to be smuggled on to a plane it will be carried on by a Muslim from the Middle East or Africa”.
A true Wally of the Week, Kelvin MacKenzie is a man with a somewhat strangely coloured view of history. It’d be fascinating to hear his thoughts on exactly who were the individuals behind IRA terrorist activity, the Oklahoma City bombing and the 2011 Oslo and Utøya massacres.
