Can comedy be used to inspire true political change? That is to say, can a simple comedian be dangerous to the status quo or political ruling class? The answer to this question is a resounding “yes!”
Controversial French comic Dieudonné M’Bala M’Bala has been rattling the cages of the political establishment of France for the better part of a decade with various sketch comedy routines and monologues. His defiant, politically incorrect satire highlighting the African slave trade and the Jewish experience during WW2 has resonated with disaffected youths and minorities, while offending a certain coterie of France’s most powerful Jews. Dieudonné’s performances have prompted World Jewish Congress head Ronald Lauder to call on the French government to disrupt his ability to generate an income and shut his performances down for good.
While much has been already been written about the embattled comic, most Americans may be unaware as to exactly what was said that caused this hysterical response from the Jewish media establishment across the Western world. Readers looking to get a sampling of Dieudonné’s act should watch his one-man performance, “Mahmoud,” which is a nod to former Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, currently available on YouTube with English subtitles.
In Mahmoud, Dieudonné admits his frustration with Hollywood’s constant portrayal of the “the crying Jew in pajamas, begging for a slice of bread.” He explains that he wants Hollywood to portray more of the Jews that we don’t see very often; “the Rambo Jew,” the Jewish terrorist that shoots up a ship full of peace activists, white collar criminals like “the Madoff Jew,” and child sexual predators like the “Polanski Jew,” along with Woody Allen and Jeffrey Epstein.
For addressing these disturbing facts and eliciting laughter from his audience all over France, Dieudonné has been branded a racist, a hate criminal by Jewish media and banned from performing throughout France. Download or have a listen to an interesting mp3 podcast on the Dieudonné controversy.
While there are a few comedians on the stand-up circuit who may dabble in politics and politically incorrect humor, the arena of political comedy in America is tame in comparison to the satire of Dieudonné. Take Jewish name-changer John Stewart (born Jonathan Stuart Leibowitz) for instance, who is currently America’s top political satirist. Stewart has had an extremely successful career lampooning mainstream media outlets and various politicians from both the left and right. His well developed shtick is pointing out the absurd in global politics, presenting current events in an amusing, yet seemingly truthful fashion, and often pretending to be a sort of opposition to the status quo.
His brother, Lawrence Leibowitz, is currently Chief Operating Officer of NYSE Euronext. If you need any more evidence that Stewart is a true insider, consider all the times that he’s used his program his platform to allow various politicians and policymakers to defend their decisions to destroy Iraq in 2003. Stewart’s uses the particularly simple yet effective tactic of taking extremely serious issues and presenting them jokes to his gullible liberal viewers. In the process, all Stewart has to do is to make a funny face and criminal malfeasance, treason and and war crimes are reduced to mere incompetence by the government and the crowd eats it up. Jon Stewart like his brother on Wall Street, is an operative and a sickening individual.
The rest of America’s political comedy comes from Saturday Night Live, the likes of radio shock jock Howard Stern and the fake independent, super liberal Bill Maher, who donated a $1 millions dollars to a superPAC supporting President Obama’s re-election. In truth, America’s entire upper echelon of the comedy industry is predominately Jewish, and has been for many years as noted in the 2013 documentary “When Comedy Went to School.”

Part of Dieudonné’s appeal with the youth of France appears to be a gesture he created called “the quenelle,” of which loosely translates in English as “up yours, about this far.” Dieudonné’s original intention of the gesture is said to be anti-establishment in its meaning, however that hasn’t stopped the people from using the quenelle in scenarios ranging from the hilarious, to situations which many Jews and philosemites consider to be vile and tasteless.
The most famous use of the quenelle was made in at the end of December 2013 by Nicolas Anelka, a black French soccer player who plays for West Brom, a premier league team in the UK. Anelka made the gesture in front of thousands of live spectators after scoring a goal, and he said that his gesture was a special dedication to his friend Dieudonne. This enraged the Jews, and Jewish sponsors have put pressure on West Brom and the Football Association (FA) to have Anelka severely punished for his transgression.
Around the same time that Anelka made the infamous gesture , French media published photos of France’s interior minister, Manuel Valls, posing with a group of students who were making the quenelle. As the hilarious photo made it into English news outlets, journalists were unable to convey the photo’s humor to its readers. The photo was spun into a “shame-shame” political correctness issue and bundled along side the attack on Anelka and Dieudonné. The fact that the smiling interior minister was unknowingly the butt of an inside joke likely fueled Valls intense efforts to ban Dieudonné’s routines the following month.
Across France, the political, economic and societal landscape threatens to rapidly unwind and bring with it the violence and turmoil that visited Paris in 2005, and then again in 2007. Tens of thousands of protests regularly take to the streets of Paris, voicing their displeasure on issues such as gay marriage, théorie du genre or gender theory, and their president François Hollande. One recent mass protest against Hollande included a faction of Dieudonné supporters and others shouting slogans such as “Juif casse-toi, la France n’est pas a toi” (“Jews you flaws, France is not yours”), “Juif! Juif! Juif! Juif!” (“Jews! Jews! Jews! Jews!”), “Juif, Licra: on n’en veut pas” (“Jews, Licra: We don’t want you”), “Juif, hors de France” (“Jews, out of France”) and “Faurisson a raison! Chambres á gaz c’est du bidon” (“Faurisson’s right! Gas chambers are bullshit”).
There is every indication that an uncontrolled resistance movement is growing in France and the Jewish establishment, along with their unpopular puppet Hollande, have got to be feeling powerless as to how to stop it from spreading across Europe and beyond. Although the quenelle is a seemingly insignificant part of this uprising, world Jewry knows that containing the quenelle is key to containing the popular uprising.
Back in the US, economic conditions and the many corrupt elected officials have made politically aware adults just as angry and disgusted as the French, but Americans are demoralized, off-balance and seem to be affected with a certain of hopelessness. Adults who are not politically aware are trapped inside of the broadcast media’s mind-warping womb of non-stop distractions; their soft minds nourished by hyper-sexual titillation, violence and mindless sports .
A recent study by McAfee revealed that 50% of Americans have used their smartphones to send sexually suggestive photos, and risqué e-mails and text messages. Reports and warnings of the NSA spying on all phone and internet communications is not likely to stop this casual obsession. Since upcoming generations have grown less susceptible to media lies and propaganda thanks to the Internet, it could be argued that hope in overturning the current system lies with the youth of America. The youth in general are however, mostly a national embarrassment. Many teenagers and young adults, especially females, seem to have developed an alarming pre-occupation with their rear ends, and they spend a considerable amount of time and energy “twerking,” posting “selfies” and pictures of their buttocks on social networks.
Aside from the cultural rot, Americans are also too divided along the racial and political divides. For example, conservative French and the nationalist types, who are normally ideological opposed to Muslims and African immigrants, seem to be smart enough to put their differences aside and find enough common ground to protest together on certain cultural issues. After the 2008 financial crisis, Americans on the left and the right couldn’t even come together to protest about the looting of the economy by the Jewish plutocrats of Goldman Sachs. There were two opportunities in fact, for Americans to come together over the issue of the economy. In 2009, conservative and libertarian types rose up to protest mostly corruption on Wall Street along the Affordable Care Act, another economic issue, but the left did not. Liberal media outlets like the Huffington Post and MSNBC were quick to label the Tea Party protesters as racists and bigots who just hated having a non-White president. Likewise, during the Occupy Wall Street protests of 2011, fake opposition news front, FOX News portrayed all protesters as dirty hippies, lazy hipsters and Che Guevara worshiping Communists and many conservatives appeared to avoid the demonstrations.
During the height of the Occupy protests, political commentator and radio broadcaster Mark Dankof, appeared on Iran’s Press TV along with Sara Flounders and Debra Sweet, two activists who claimed to speak for the entire Occupy Wall Street movement. Dankof argued that there was a certain dialog that was absent from the narrative being put forth by the protestors and the movement’s leaders. Dankof went on to highlight the thirty-plus Pro-Israel political action committees, along with the policies of the Federal Reserve and other Jewish banking institutions and their role in helping bring down the US to the state in which it exists.
The women denied that America’s economic woes had anything to do with the Israeli political wing of the organized Jewish community, and much like Dieudonné, the Occupy activists tried to dismiss Dankof as “racist, anti-Semitic, and divisive.” Mr. Dankof would never be invited on any mainstream radio station or television program in US to say what he said on Press TV. The irony is that he endured the same attacks for opposing Wall Street corruption by the very people claiming to be the opposition to Wall Street corruption is astounding and underscores an important point.
In a nutshell, the exchange on Press TV describes the rather simple dilemma that Americans face; the inability to name the true enemy without facing ridicule by their peers, and the inability to put minor ideological differences aside. A simple gesture has the ability to completely override the political divide and anti-free speech policies that cause self-censorship in our society. Viva la quenelle!
