The Representative Council of Croat Institutions suing Bob Dylan for inciting hatred

Posted by owen On December - 5 - 2013 0 Comment

The Representative Council of Croat Institutions (CRICCF) in France is suing prolific singer/songwriter Bob Dylan for comments he made in the September 2012 issue of the French Rolling Stone. In the article, Dylan compares Croatians to Nazis, something the CRICCF asserts could provoke hatred against the Croatian people.

In the interview, Dylan is asked if he “sees any parallels between the 1860s and present day America.” Dylan’s response (which can be found in full here) is predominantly about slavery and racism in the U.S., but at the end, he compares the Ku Klux Klan to Nazis and Croatian war criminals, without differentiating between those particular criminals and the rest of Croatia.

“If you got a slave master or (Ku Klux) Klan in your blood, blacks can sense that. That stuff lingers to this day. Just like Jews can sense Nazi blood and the Serbs can sense Croatian blood.”

In France, all claims of racism, no matter the case, are automatically subject to a formal investigation. CRICCF’s complaint is currently under investigation in Paris.
