Telling unfunny jokes should not be a crime

The antisemite described below is black and appears jealous of the attention that Jewish suffering gets.
"He has called some of his Jewish critics ‘slave traders who turned to banking or the entertainment business and now to terror activities’ He once labelled the French president’s chief-of-staff a ‘good little soldier of the Zionist lobby’

In a video circulating on the internet, he appears to attack a ‘yid Zionist lobby’ led by ‘racist liars’. He once appeared on a television show dressed as an Orthodox Nazi-saluting Jew shouting ‘IsraHeil’. In a skit he mimics the Jewish-French philosopher, Bernard-Henri Lévy, haggling with a street potato-seller and says: ‘How can you ask me to pay so much when six million of us died in the Holocaust?’ He apparently declared, in a radio interview, that he has a habit of ripping out the pages in his children’s school books that deal with the Holocaust, which he believes Jewish people exploit for ‘memorial pornography’.

The man in question – and currently in the eye of yet another comedy controversy – is the French comedian Dieudonné. None of this seems very funny to me. But then again, my French is a bit rusty.

The comedian, whose full name is Dieudonné M’Bala M’Bala, was last week fined €10,000 for ‘public anti-Semitic insults’ after inviting the notorious revisionist historian and Holocaust denier Robert Faurisson on stage during a stand-up comedy show in Paris last December. In the skit, Faurisson received a spoof award for ‘social unacceptability and insolence’ from an actor dressed in a chequered flannel pyjama with a yellow star sewn on. When the stagehand claims he was made to wear the pyjama because he was meeting Faurisson, Dieudonné replies: ‘No you fool, you’re wearing it because you were in Belsen, it was obligatory!’ The implication is that the foolish stagehand unwittingly reveals to the audience that he is not an authentic Holocaust victim and Dieudonné, pretending to be the award ceremony host, tries to hide the gaffe.

Of Cameroonian and Breton middle-class origins, Dieudonné is known for no-holds-barred satire of racial prejudices. He started his career as part of a comedy double act with Jewish comedian Elie Semoun, who has in recent years distanced himself from Dieudonné. He has had the conscience of the French liberal press in tortured contortions, as he’s caused them to debate, to and fro, where to draw the line between anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism, what makes a joke drole, and if and where to limit free speech.

As a magazine which does not believe in slapping gags on gags or in fining opinions - and which believes the public can cope with being offended – spiked completely opposes the criminalisation of Dieudonné’s offensive skits.

Firstly, this would be counterproductive, as it is likely to help Dieudonné claim he is some kind of martyred, free-speech warrior. It will also fuel the conspiratorial mindset of Dieudonné’s fans and others with nightmare visions of a nefarious Zionist lobby occupying, not just Gaza and the West Bank, but also the high seats of power where they get to sit around tables dictating the political agenda (why are Zionists so keen on round tables, anyway?).

Secondly, if we let the authorities put a price on Dieudonné’s words, then there is no telling which opinions will be fined into extinction in the future. Already we have seen how a growing culture of offence-taking has led to the watering-down of comedy and has severely limited freedom of expression in other spheres, too....

Note that the writer above bears the surname Rothschild, so is presumably Jewish

A bit of trivia: Most people pronounce the name "Rothschild" as if it were "Roths child". That is strictly wrong. It should be pronounced as "Roth Schild", which is German/Yiddish for "Red shield"

Wow, a black jew-hater. Now that will really confuse the leftist media.

I think it's pretty obvious that over the years many of the self nominated holocaust victims have been frauds. I mean come one! In 2004 there were still over one million survivors alive (check the Times article below). Unless Jews have some sort of superpowers that make them live forever that means almost 4 million survivors in 1945 (if Jews have approximately the same life expectancy as everyone else).

The Jewish population of Europe in 1939 was less than 9 million and out of those we know 6 million were killed. That means that even if every Jew in Europe in 1939 - including the ones who lived in Russia or migrated before nazis came - were put to a camp at some point, there would still be a minimum of a million fake survivors.

In reality many of the Jews that lived in Europe in 1939 never came in contact with the nazis and so the number of frauds may be as high as three million. And that's high considering that in 1945 the International Red Cross claimed 120 000 survivors.

I agree that maybe using loose round figures like 6 million Jews (whether or not it ever meant to include all the other groups of victims killed in Nazi camps) isn't helpful. It is surely enough to say a huge number, and therefore it was a huge crime against humanity.
(I gather that the so-called Holocaust-deniers only argue over figures when pressed on the subject.)

"I think it's pretty obvious that over the years many of the self nominated holocaust victims have been frauds. '

---Yeah, I've met a lot of "frauds" with numbers in their arms. I'm sure they went to the tattoo parlor for that design.

So what if it's 2004? Some people went to the camps when they where 5, 8, 10, 12, etc. There are plenty of jews in their 80s and 90s.

"In reality many of the Jews that lived in Europe in 1939 never came in contact with the nazis and so the number of frauds may be as high as three million."

---Right, like Hitler didn't invade all of europe. Did you forget that most countries back then including this one had jewish quotas that limited jewish immigration?

Why don't you visit the Simon Wiesenthal center and learn a little history before defaming millions of people. Or at least have the decency to admit that you like Hitler and what he did, instead of rewriting history.

Why is it that you never hear about all the non-jews who were killed by the Nazi's?

And why do jews never complain about Stalin, who killed far more jews than Hitler did?

Why is anyone shocked by a black anti-Semite,look at Jeremiah Wright. And one anon asked a good question.I do not know why we Jews obsess with what Hitler did to us when Stalin killed more of us then the Nazis.

Hey Anon 4:42

Its because Stalin killed Russian Jews, and nobody likes Russians, whether they're Jewish or not!

Math is math. If Jews live about as long as other people, as I assume they do, there were 4 million survivors in 1945. 6 million and 4 million together is 10 million which is over a million more than the whole Jewish population of Europe. And that population includes Russia which had almost a million Jews before the war.

I don't give a rat's ass about this one way or the other and so I have no agenda. You obviously do. But like I said math is math. Besides many of the most celebrated survivor descriptions have later been proved fiction. What's wrong with acknowledging that? Does it take something away from the people who actually died or survived? Not in my book.

I seem to remember a link on one of these blogs several months ago to a story that said the Nazis' plans for the Jews was merely to expel them from Germany, until the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, representing Islam, pushed for the Nazis to exterminate the Jews instead. It was indeed a great crime against humanity, but if that story is all true, then Islam was the mastermind of it.
