WTF? Comedian arrested for comment on Charlie Hebdo attacks

Dieudonne Mbala Mbala 

Notorious French comedian Dieudonné was arrested Jan. 14 for being an “apologist for terrorism” after writing a Facebook comment suggesting he sympathised with one of the Paris attacks gunmen, a judicial source said.

Prosecutors had opened the case against him on Monday after he posted “Tonight, as far as I’m concerned, I feel like Charlie Coulibaly” – mixing the popular slogan “Je Suis Charlie” used in homage to the journalists killed at magazine Charlie Hebdo, with a reference to gunman Amedy Coulibaly.

Coulibaly killed four Jews at a Jewish supermarket on Jan. 16 and a policewoman the day before.

The comedian made international headlines in 2013 when French footballer Nicolas Anelka was banned for five matches by English football authorities for using a hand-gesture created by Dieudonné that many people consider anti-Semitic…

It makes no sense to arrest him for this and claim to be pro-free speech.

Yes, he’s an obnoxious jerk, but the what did our leaders think they would get when they imported third worlders en masse?  

If you want a homogenous population with a minimum of friction like the recent events regarding Charlie Hebdo, then you should not be importing millions of people from wildly incompatible cultures.  

The French cannot have it both ways.  Nor can any of the Western governments, for that matter.
