This video appeared in the Guardian this morning and inadvertently made Banksy the butt of extreme liberal criticism for, at best, profiteering from Syrian unrest and, at worst, showing tacit support for Islamic extremism in a country in the midst of turmoil.
On Youtube it has had a different reaction. Mostly silly political rhetoric or outright praise.
There can be no doubt the end is very reminiscent of Four Lions and I didn’t see that getting a “right on” kicking.
Me, I just thought it was hilarious and I hope you do too.
