A despicable manipulation

(Canscene) — One of the more sleazy internet  parodies now being circulated is Stranger on a Plane, sung to the tune of Strangers in the Night, a ballad made famous by one of the greatest entertainers of the 20th century.

The “stranger” is a be-turbaned non-white whom the singer suspects is a terrorist, which in itself is sufficient to class this as “hate” material.

However the singing voice is an uncanny impersonation of the late Frank Sinatra, a man noted for his anti-racist  views, which makes this hate message even more deplorable.

The simulation of a dead man’s voice  is a typical example of the cowardice of racists who  carefully avoid self-identification with their despicable views.
