I don't see how you can seperate art from the man who creates it or use it against him as a personal attack of his political inclinations and or agenda.
That statement is self-contradictory. If it is impossible to separate a work of art from the artist who creates it, then it is perfectly appropriate to use the message of that work of art to argue against the moral character of the artist.

If an artist creates a work of art advocating for fascism, and if you cannot separate the artist from the art, then it is appropriate to take that work of art that advocates fascism and therefore condemn the artist for advocating fascism.
