Why poet Omar Musa signed up to help write Romper Stomper reboot

The question of how to faithfully represent neo-Nazis without condoning them is familiar to poet, rapper, author and now television writer Omar Musa.

If the backlash over Tina Fey’s “ignore the Nazis and eat cake” advice, the Sunrise team’s years of paid Pauline Hanson spots, or Tom Tilley’s interview with a Charlottesville riot organiser is anything to go by, critics are fed up with the media underestimating and platforming white supremacy groups.

The question of how to faithfully represent neo-Nazis without condoning them is familiar to poet, rapper, author and now television writer for Stan’s upcoming Romper Stomper sequel Omar Musa.

    Recently a man sent me conspiracy theory articles alleging that the Jews never lived in Egypt and never had connections with the Middle East either, delegitimising them in short. In no way commenting on Israel today, but this is alt history and quite racist. Maybe one of these revisionist types could be written into the series too. They seem to be targeting non far right people too- like me.
