What we saw
Guardian 'arts critic' Jonathan Jones nearly exploded with outrage (1 February) that the RA in London is putting on an exhibition of Russian revolutionary art.
His confusion and lies about 1917's socialist revolution were both outrageous and unoriginal. (See 'Smearing socialism by attacking the arts'.)
Surely, then, the far right must be even more beyond the pale? But Jones has rushed to the defence (22 February) of a small gallery in Hackney, east London, which has been hosting 'alt-right' speakers.
To be sure, he says their politics "repel" him. But apparently not quite so much as socialism.
