‘Anti-semitic’ comedian Dieudonné M’bala M’bala has his show cancelled in France after Nicolas Anelka’s inverted Nazi ..
The first stage of a Tour de France by the controversial stand-up comedian Dieudonné M’bala M’bala was banned on Tuesday as a threat to public order – igniting a legal and political row over censorship and free speech. Dieudonné’s show has been widely condemned as anti-semitic.
Politically correct speech codes and hate speech laws are creating medieval repression. It is hilarious that the victim of the censorship is Black, a protected class, and that the extreme right supports his rights to free speech.
Almost all 6,000 places for Thursday’s show in Nantes in western France had been sold at up to €43 a ticket before the local prefect, acting as chief of police, ordered the performance to be cancelled.
6000 people have voted with their wallet, and are prevented from seeing as show they want to see.
The censorship effort makes him famous, but if there is no place in France that he can do his shows, the fame is of little benefit.
