Following a terrorist attack early this year on the anti-religion, communist publishers of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, France’s stated commitment to freedom of speech is under the microscope. In 2013, DieudonnÃ© M’bala M’bala joked that he regretted that Nazis had not sent a modern-day Jewish journalist to the gas chambers, prompting republic and local officials to attempt to ban M’bala M’bala from public performances. Listen to M’bala M’bala describe his renegade performances in the provinces and make up your own mind as to whether he’s a comedian, a public menace, or both; and whether French officials are exercising a double standard by celebrating the works of cartoonists who mocked the Islamic prophet Mohammed.
