And video is has some politically incorrect statements, with stereo-typical vintage slurs towards Germans, Jews, and the Irish.

Imagine how much outrage there would be on Social Media

at the 1:40 mark

"He's Jewish and he wants to do is arbitrate"
"I'm German and I want to kill the both of them"
"I'm Irish and I am looking for another Mick to hit"
