First, thanks to gallier2 for pointing out this rather surprisingly reasonable video about Dieudonne and the “quenelle” gesture; this report even features a short interview of Alain Soral who explains what is really going on. I never would have thought that the BBC could still produce such a more or less well balanced and reasonable report.
Second, as I have mentioned in a previous report, Minister of the Interior Manuel Valls has urged the local authorities to ban the latest show of Dieudonne (entitled “Le Mur” or “The Wall”). Here is what then happened:
The Prefet of the Préfecture of the Loire-Atlantique Department decided to ban Dieudonne’s show in the city of Nantes. Now, to really understand what happened, I need to explain something here:
France has always been an amazingly diverse and multi-cultural country and the Masonic revolutionary regime in France knew from “Day 1” that it has little or no popular support. This is why the revolutionaries decided to break up traditional France into regions that they would control through the use of specially appointed representatives: the “Departments” were created in December of 1789 which made it possible for the central power in Paris to have a local representative – a “prefet” – who could over-rule any local authority and always impose the will of the central government. The “Prefecture of Loire-Atlantique” is a region also created by the French Revolutionaries to remove the historical capital of the Brittany region – Nantes – from the rest of Brittany. It is this century old mechanism of repressing the local authorities by Paris which has been used against Dieudonne.
In reaction to the ban, Dieudonne’s lawyers appealed to the “juge des référés” – a special judge which does not rule on the substance of a dispute, but which can order provisional emergency measures called “ordinances” to defend the rights and freedoms of one of the parties in a dispute. In this case the judge suspended the ban imposed by the Prefect. This was a short victory for Dieudonne as the Minister of Interior Manuel Valls then lodged an emergency appeal to the “Conseil d’État” (State Council) to ban the show, which, predictably, the latter was more than happy to do. Indeed, Wikipedia defined the “Conseil d’État” as “a body of the French national government that acts both as legal adviser of the executive branch and as the supreme court for administrative justice“. In other words, it is the tool used by the Executive Branch to make sure that it prevails in any legal dispute.
This would all be hilarious if it wasn’t for the totally over-the-top reaction of the French government which is truly going completely apeshit over what is simply a stand up comic act. Within minutes – literally – of hearing the decision of the “juge des référés” Vals filed an emergency appeal to the State Council which itself took only minutes to issue its ban all just in time to prevent Dieudonne to perform. It is outright pathetic to see the manic hysteria which has seized the French government.
And this is now far from over. The French courts will now have to tackle with the following issues:
a) should Dieudonne be banned for his alleged “apology of hate” and “anti-Semitism” or for “threat to the public order”?
b) what should be the object of the ban: the show or the comedian?
c) can a show be banned even before it is performed?
d) is a comedian liable for what he says on stage?
e) should Dieudonne’s shows be re-branded as “political meetings” and then banned as such?
f) what about his online videos? what is the point of banning a show if it can be watch on the Internet?
What absolutely everybody understands in France is that the regime is just seeking a legal figleaf to justify its political repression of a type of speech it does not like. Alas, France does have a long tradition of crushing free speech. Not only did Voltaire never say “I disagree with what you say but I will fight for your right to say it” – he himself viciously persecuted many people for the “crime” of making fun on him. And there is no such thing as the ACLU in France, nor is there a First Amendment. But the worst aspect of French political culture is its extreme polarization and intolerance whose roots go straight back to the bloody events of the French Revolution. Whether the French plutocratic elites and their government realize it or not, their hysterical attitude is definitely having a polarizing effect on the French youth which is now rallying in bigger and bigger numbers around the Dieudonne-Soral tag team while there are zero signs of popular support for the position of the Jewish organizations, the French plutocracy or the Hollande government.
What is happening is a sweet paradox: Dieudo and Soral are basically accusing the French Zionist lobby of being almighty and above the law in France. The French Zionist lobby’s reaction to this accusation it to use its infinite power and above the law status to crush the free speech of Dieudo and Soral thereby proving them right. For example, the French elites categorically deny that the Zionist lobby has the power of banning somebody from appearing on TV while at the same time the entire country knows that Soral and Dieudo have been banned (before they dared to criticize the power of the French Zionist lobby both were very often seen on TV). Now even the shows which discuss and analyse the “quenelle” phenomenon are always recorded without inviting Dieudo or Soral to speak. Just like de Gaulle, Soral now speaks from London…
My biggest fear at the moment is for the physical safety of Soral and Dieudonne as I would most definitely not put it past the French elites to order their assassination. True, whether the French special units would actually execute such an order is very dubious, but the French can always call on the Israelis to do the dirty job for them, leaving the secondary task of botching the investigation to the French authorities. But then, the Kidon also has a very checkered record, to say the least, and if they screw-up this one the scandal would be absolutely huge. So the “lone, ‘crazy’ killer” (US favorite method) is probably the biggest threat to Dieudo and Soral. That, or a “tragic accident” (Russian favorite method).
May God protect these two men.
I wasn’t looking for it but I found this video on MEMRI YouTube channel of Dieudonné that includes subtitles and extracts from an interview he gave to Iranian TV.
Have those media sweethearts and champions of free speech, Pussy Riot, offered their expert opinion on this matter?
@Anonymous: Have those media sweethearts and champions of free speech, Pussy Riot, offered their expert opinion on this matter?
LOL! Indeed. Why don’t they go and shake their titties at Mr Valls or, even better, Mr. Cukierman :-)
I just hope Generation Identitaire and Front National do not get in bed with the Jews on this one.
As much as I believe a demographic transforming North African contingent should have no place in France, I do not blame Diedonne for naming the Jew.
@Anonymous: It’s not just Pussy Riot who refuse to defend Dieudonne. Every major human rights organization on the West remains silent on the issue of the [mass incarceration of holocaust dissidents and right wing nationalists throughout the Western world](http://youtu.be/XvwvrjSxfAw).
Indeed, it would be interesting to say the least if any of Soros hoe´s, i.e P.Riot,”open society” and FEMEN where to be confronted with their anti-action on this issue. FEMEN is nowadays situated Paris, and their silence is deafening.
Can we, in defence of “human rights” and “freedom of speech”, expect a visit by the whore´s of Babylon, Hitlery Clingon and Vic. Nuland to Paris any time soon? Don´t hold your breath..
Look how far a Nazi, “paper Jew” could go to justify their monkey business, hiding behind someones back.. culture, China, God.. repulsive disgrace. http://www.atimes.com/atimes/China/CHIN-01-100114.html
Free speech, if it means anything means free speech for everyone, including fascists.
I would have total free speech except for a)incitement to commit a crime b)a civil libel law. If I go round saying X is a paedophile and he’s not he’s entitled to sue.
Other than that free speech means the right to be offensive. If people want to deny the Holocaust the rest of us have an equal right to say they’re contemptible but it should not be a matter for the criminal law.
So even if Dieudonne is anti semitic that’s not a good enough reason to ban his show.
I just hope Generation Identitaire and Front National do not get in bed with the Jews on this one.
No they aren’t as far as one can tell.
Here 2 videos from yesterday (9th Jan 2014)
where the whole FN heads are openly being sarcastic and mocking media and gouvernment.
Cyril Collard one of the only 2 FN representative in Parliament jokes about the Quenelle
but today it gets more serious and formal:
Here Marine Le Pen makes a real stand and openly defends freedom of speech and proposes even, if ever she gets elected, to constitutionalize the guarantee of freedom of speech especially for the Internet. This is huge and could really be a game changer.
Adding the new Hollande scandal with the revelation of his liaison with an actress this morning, it is impossible to conclude otherwise than that the socialists are toast.
@Anonymous: “Look how far a Nazi, “paper Jew” could go to justify their monkey business, hiding behind someones back.. culture, China, God.. repulsive disgrace”
Contrary to what “Spengler” would have his readers believe, tribalism and corrupt ethnic networking have been the defining characteristics of Jews for centuries. But that’s not how “Spengler” wants us to see it:
Common Traits Bind Jews and Chinese
The Jews are not an ethnicity but a people defined by a partnership with the Creator God, in which they are obligated to recognize God’s presence in the details of their daily lives, and empowered to help in the work of creation. Individuals of all races can be adopted into this nation by accepting its responsibilities; in today’s State of Israel one sees hundreds of thousands of black African Jews from Ethiopia, as well as Jews of all ethnicities.
The Jews are not an ethnic nation but a multi-racial family. The Jews were the first people to apply the same laws to the foreigner as to the home-born. Indeed, they are commanded to love the stranger in the same way that the love themselves, because they were strangers in Egypt.
This is pure bunk.
He claims that Jews were well educated and highly literate for millenia. Yet for centuries their faith was sustained merely through an “oral tradition”, as opposed to the written word as inscribed by the Greeks. Also, until the Jewish Emancipation, the only notable cultural contribution of these highly educated Jews was the creation of Talmud “scholars” whose significance never transcended the shtetl in which they dwelled.
Although he once postured as if he were a conservative Catholic, “Spengler” is a pious, observant Jew who regularly attends services at his Park Avenue synagogue. He knows he is lying about the true nature and orientation of Judaism which is a faith centered on notions of ethnic struggle and blood relations.
If you want to learn more about Jewish identity & deception I strongly recommend the following series of podcasts from Tanstaafl:
Are any of the Dieudonné shows available over the internet? Whether in whole or in part (clips) preferably English voice over but would settle for English subtitles.
@Anonymous:Are any of the Dieudonné shows available over the internet? Whether in whole or in part (clips) preferably English voice over but would settle for English subtitles.
They are all available from various torrent sites and on YouTube, but they are all in French. Sorry!
Meanwhile this is going to cause outrage in the West
Check here: http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=ab1_1389225315 It’s a show named Mahmoud with ENG subs. When you run part 2, link for part 3 appears. Had a good laugh watching it yesterday. Also downloaded L’antisemite but didn’t find subs yet. Would really like to see more translated. French keep it for themselves apparently.
It’s clear that they also try to rob him of his source of income, to starve him to death so to say. So he just announced in his response video that he is making a DVD with the forbidden show ‘Le mur’ (the wall) and that it will contain the whole show with subtitles in English, Russian, Arabic, Farsi. People that paid a ticket for one of his cancelled shows can send the ticket and get the DVD, others can buy it for €43 (I know it’s steep but it’s necessary). When it’s available I will post a comment with the details here and at Penny’s blog.
@gallier2:When it’s available I will post a comment with the details here and at Penny’s blog.
Yes,please! “You are hereby granted a license to post as many commercial posts and links for Dieudo and/or Soral as you wish” :-)
These will be the only advertisements this blog ever had, LOL!, and I will be proud to host them. By the way, if you want me to place a banner or something similar pointing to Soral books or Dieudo videos, let me know and I will gladly do so.
Merci l’ami et a+
From Roberts Reuters post.
French court backs ban on comedy show deemed anti-Semitic
i was stunned when i read AA today, he hasn´t been more obvious:
“Gilad Atzmon — gilad.co.uk Jan 11, 2014
Angry Sabboth Goy AKA Angry Arab stated today that Dieudonne is an anti-Semite and should be rejected from the pro-Palestinian community. “The French branch of the Palestine solidarity committee was right in categorically rejecting Dieudonne and his antics. He does not belong to our camps. All anti-Semitic haters and racists should be excluded from the pro-Palestine struggle. The Palestinian cause is too precious and noble.”
Once again, the angry man who saturates his rant with racial references to black vs. white decided to join forces with the Zionist Jewish Lobby in its campaign against freedom of speech. This time the Angry Arab chases a Black comedian.
Is it funny or sad? I let you judge. “

just an update
new intervention from Gilad Atzmon
A communiqué from the “Parti des indigènes de la république”:
The thing is, it’s not anti-Semitism or the lack of same, it’s the contradiction inherent in creating a modern nation which prefers citizens who can demonstrate matrilineal descent to an ancient tribe, long since dispersed. Does not compute. Presumes an uber species: homo iudens.
For those of you who understand French, I wanted to bring to your attention Marine LePen, who is always portrayed as some sort of Nazi, defending the freedom of expression of Dieudonné and of the french people in general.
What I’ve read of her political program, especially economic and monetary policy appears to me further to the left than most establishment left-wing parties would go. She wants to leave the Euro, and she wants to cut out the private banks from the process of issuing national debt.
It could be that I read her wrong, but I believe that she has correctly identified a strong nation-state with a strong national identity as one of the few bulwarks there are against the forces of globalism and global imperialism. She also correctly identifies the EU as a tool to destroy the nation states that are its members, without anything to put in their place. The main point is that the EU is precisely not the attempt to build a European superstructure. The EU is like a giant IMF – structural adjustment program that leaves its victim states weak and exposed and ready for the taking by global capital.
French nationalism has always been more republican and values-based. It is based on citizenship rather than blood. I wish more countries would start to think like that.
@D. you are absolutely right. You do not misunderstand her. It is exactly her position and it is one of the results of Alain Soral when he was in the FN.
If only she’d be less ambiguous about the clash of civilization, she could make inroads within immigrants.
Thank you for confirming my reading. Being ambiguous on the clash of civilizations. What do you mean by that? I am also worried about those who wage hateful campaigns against Islam per se. But LePen does not strike me as one of them. However this is not to be confused with criticizing multiculturalism. I believe LePen is right in criticizing multiculturalism. It is a concept that cannot work if you desire a cohesive, society, built on solidarity, justice and trust. Those goals can only be achieved when there is a high level of trust present in a society, which is in turn a result of shared behaviors, norms and values and yes identity. Multiculturalism undermines this by putting all norms, values, behaviors and identities on an equal footing. Putnam came to the result that diversity and trust in a society are inversely related.
Perhaps in the early days our decision makers were too naive to see that mass immigration is detrimental to solidarity, national cohesion etc. But mass immigration is the perfect weapon against the working classes. It leads to wage dumping, and if those imported for work wouldn’t find work it would put strain on the social safety net that was supposed to protect the working class of a country. Labor unions in many places were always a little bit more uneasy about mass immigration than other parts of the left, because it was so blatantly obvious that it damages one of their core interests. But by now they’re either completely subdued by the diktat of political correctness and the fear of being branded racists when they criticize mass immigration, or they have changed sides to the likes of FN. It’s a sad situation because it really is a case of one vulnerable group (the working class) being played against the other (poor undereducated immigrants who want a better life). Sure the ME immigrants didn’t come to France with the intention of damaging social cohesion and being troublesome. They didn’t choose to be put away in ghetto-like suburbs that were going to turn into social hotspots. But that is what happened, and we now know that this is what you get unless you are very very smart about your immigration policies (like Canada, or Switzerland). But it has progressed beyond that point… I believe the middle classes are next. They’re attacked from all sides.
Anyway why am I writing all of this? Realizing that mass immigration mixed with multiculturalism was a very big mistake, there are basically two courses of action: assimilation or repatriation. In reality it would be a mixture of the two. Unless of course you want your country to turn into a miniature of the united states, where the lowest common denominator rules everything: money and power, and nothing else, no shared ideals, identity, values. Everything else is relative, replaceable, acceptable. Knowing all of this LePen cannot cozy up to the multiculturalists. I think that her stance is not explained by antipathy, racism or hate, but rather it is a principled stance and therefore not as flexible as some other politicians’ ;-)
Does this make sense to you? And yes you make me wanna read Alain Soral even more. He’s already on my list.
FYI: French police have arrested Diedonne at his home:
Nah, they already released him. It is a boring overblown issue which I will probably cover in a few days. Dieudo is fine, in fact he has an excellent lawyer who is trying to force the issue into the open. I will try to write about it later if I find the time.
