I often read the Entertainment sections of the mainstream media in order to monitor the steady politicization of culture e.g. the anti-American and pro-Arab escape “thrillers,” the more serious films in which ever-innocent dark-skinned immigrants are falsely accused of Islamist crimes by heartless American or Canadian immigration bureaucracies. Most American comics, with the exception of Dennis Miller, are left-liberal politicals. Think Bill Maher, John Stewart, Steve Colbert, etc. and they use humor to skewer politicians and policies they despise. My God, the comic Al Franken became a politician—and may one day even represent the state of Minnesota in the Senate.
I was recently in Canada and thus read the Globe and Mail, the Toronto Star, the National Post, the Sunday Independent, etc. for three days
According to Susan Sachs in The Globe and Mail, France is home to a very popular French comic named Dieudonne M’bala M’bala, who views himself as a champion of free speech, denies the Holocaust, has never met a Jew or an Israeli whom he likes, (and he makes money and gets laughs for saying so). Dieudonne just ran for a seat in the EU Parliament on his own political party which he has named: “The anti-Zionist List.” His comrades-in-arms include a one-time aide to Jean-Marie Le Pen, the author of a book which argues that 9/11 was an American military plot, and the head of a Muslim group who claims he is being backed by Hamas and Hezbollah.
Dieudonne has quite a multi-racial, young, left, following in France. (He is a French-Cameroonian; 20% of the population in Cameroon are Muslims), and he is obsessed with race, bi-raciality, and with his own both black and white roots. (His long gone father is from Cameroon, his mother is Breton). Dieudonne is known for insulting “prominent French Jews” and for his extreme “antagonism to Israel (which) amounts to anti-Semitism.” According to the Sunday Independent:
“Since 2002, and intensively since 2004, Dieudonné has become a kind of French Louis Farrakhan, the anti-Semitic leader of the Nation of Islam in the United States. His critics, (including former friends), say he is no longer a comedian interested in politics but a politician, who uses comedy to further extremist political ambitions. Sometimes directly, sometimes by coded, or scarcely coded references, he presents the Jews as the main source of black misery; or he suggests that the obsession with the suffering of the Jews soaks up too much of the fund of guilt and shame which would be better spent on black people. ”
