EtcetEraThread David Bowie -- a pedophile and potentially a fascist?
Red Text Thread has been rebooted because we judge that the substance is worth discussing. The original was locked because we believe the OP was not acting in good faith and was attempting to stir up drama from an unrelated thread. For the record we have banned members in the past for defending Bowie's sexual proclivities and are prepared to do so again. Please keep the discussion focused on the subject at hand.
From : The facts are not debatable. Bowie was of rape in 1987 by a 30-year-old woman named Wanda Nichols (though never indicted, due to a lack of evidence; through a spokesperson, he called the accusation “ridiculous”), and he participated in a groupie scene that normalized and valorized statutory rape. Maddox, enthusiastic and starry-eyed a full 43 years later, does not recount her encounter as rape; legally, however, it would have been in the state of California, and a strong subset of today’s moral vocabulary dictates that it , qualitatively, regardless of what Maddox says, an act of coercion—that he was an abuser and a predator no matter what. From : In 1976, speaking as , Bowie's persona at the time, and "at least partially tongue-in-cheek", he made statements that expressed support for fascism and perceived admiration for in interviews with , NME, and a Swedish publication. Bowie was quoted as saying: "Britain is ready for a fascist leader... I think Britain could benefit from a fascist leader. After all, fascism is really nationalism... I believe very strongly in fascism, people have always responded with greater efficiency under a regimental leadership." He was also quoted as saying: "Adolf Hitler was one of the first rock stars" and "You've got to have an front come up and sweep everything off its feet and tidy everything up." Bowie later retracted these comments in an interview with in October 1977, blaming them on mental instability caused by his drug problems at the time, saying: "I was out of my mind, totally, completely crazed." In the 1980s and 1990s, Bowie's public statements shifted sharply towards and . In an interview with in 1983, Bowie criticised the channel for not providing enough coverage of black musicians,and the music videos for "China Girl" and "Let's Dance" were described by Bowie as a "very simple, very direct" statement against racism. The album Tin Machine took a more direct stance against fascism and Neo-Nazism, and was criticised for being too preachy.
