Antisemitism[edit]

Regarding inclusion of extra information about antisemitism, there are some key elements that have a huge bearing on the author Dahl and his views of the world. The prior article: 1) Doesn't mention that there are accusations of antisemitism, which there are (as referenced) 2) Doesn't mention antisemitic views perpetrated by The Protocols of the Elders of Zion about Jewish finance controlling the world or the US. 3) Doesn't mention his own admission of his antisemitism in an interview, all of which are important when considering the life of a famous person and his views and influence. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mikeetg (talkcontribs) 13:09, 15 September 2017 (UTC)

The Walt Disney article is not flooded with quotes about Jews, and there are many. It's undue weight to do so. It covers Dahl's bigoted and ill informed comments, and contextualizes them in that they weren't consistent. Outside his family Isiah Berlin knew him better than anyone, and gave a summation of his character, as did the director of his museum. GBallag (talk) 17:59, 15 September 2017 (UTC)

Blaming the Jews for the Holocaust is not antisemitic??? PATHETIC.

Oh, and commenting on TALK is neither 'disruptive' nor 'vandalism'. Go away, ridiculous person. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.68.94.86 (talk) 23:36, 11 February 2018 (UTC)

No such story as Everlasting Gobstopper.[edit]

Everlasting Gobstoppers featured in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, but they never had any Dahl work actually named in their honour. Please sort this out. 62.190.148.115 (talk) 10:19, 3 January 2018 (UTC)

I agree it was confusing so I clarified it. https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Roald_Dahl&type=revision&diff=827823992&oldid=825774757 SentientParadox (talk) 23:13, 26 February 2018 (UTC)

"Combatting the America First movement"[edit]

America First is linked, but the whole thing, "combatting the America First movement" is the actual topic, and needs to link to an article. -Inowen (talk) 06:08, 12 March 2018 (UTC)
