In this interview on Iranian TV, Dieudonne describes how he and his wife and children have been physically assaulted by Zionists for his satire.
None of that harassment has been reported widely. While the world has been forced to listen to endless nonsense about the faux-martyrdoms of operatives like Julian Assange and Edward Snowden, someone who really gets beaten up for his political views gets no sympathy.
The comedian also explains why breaking the taboo against criticizing Zionism is indispensable to releasing the West from the psychic prison in which it lives.
He explains the difference between mocking the political and commercial manipulation of the Holocaust (which he admits to doing)
and mocking the Holocaust itself (which he denies doing).
He points out that in France, in recent years, the Crucifixion has been forcibly and intentionally displaced by the Holocaust as a symbol deserving public veneration.
[See my post on Pope Francis and the Marc Chagall painting of Christ.]
Indeed, the increasing proliferation of laws supporting the inviolability of Holocaust history in France and elsewhere coincides with the increasing denigration and displacement of Christian symbols.
That displacement is nothing less than cultural imperialism.
Is one human race to replace divinity itself in the public consciousness of another?
If so, by whose will? At whose expense?
In another post I will explain why I still wonder if Dieudonne is yet another face of controlled opposition, but, in regard to the question of whether he is guilty of incitement, the answer is no.
One last point. He was convicted not of “inciting violence,” which is at least a crime, even if he didn’t commit it.
No, he was charged with something quite different, nebulous, and trumped up – “inciting hate.”
Quite apart from the astounding hypocrisy of such a statement from the West – always boiling over with barbaric ‘two-minute-hates’ (here and here for instance) directed at this or that unfortunate people who get in the way of its imperial ambitions – what does inciting hate even mean?
Really, what does it mean?
