Wikipedia article on Eric Bogle

Eric is a very caring man who is also a satirist & humourist - he stopped singing one of his songs "I hate Wogs" because there were too many people who didn't see the irony and either attacked it as racist or, worse, supported the protagonist in his racist views.
I've heard a story about a Neo-Nazi group which took this song seriously & (almost) worshipped it!
