Springtime For Bergman

Steve Sailer notes:

According to Google News, none of the 1,294 news stories on the Swedish movie director’s death mention that he finally admitted in 1999 that he had been a Nazi-supporter all through WWII, when he was in his 20s, because he found Nazism to be “fun and youthful.” Bergman’s Nazi enthusiasm wasn’t unknown back in Bergman’s heyday: Richard Grenier, Commentary’s film critic, wrote a hostile article about it in the 1980s, but, otherwise, Bergman seems to have gotten a free pass over it.

I thought that you only got to skate on that sort of thing if you were the dean of American architecture
