BLOOD ON THE BOULEVARD



The following post is extracts from
France's Homegrown Gangstas
By Olivier Guitta
Weekly Standard | Wednesday, September 28, 2005

During the mid-1990s, rap entered the mainstream of French popular culture. Since then, some of the most successful groups in French pop music have been rap bands made up mostly of French citizens of Arab or African descent. Among the most popular is NTM (which stands for Nique ta mère, "F--your mother"), a Sony Records group. NTM is famous for lyrics which attack France and especially the police. During a concert in 1995, NTM sang: "I f--the police, I sodomize and pee on the law! Our enemies are the men in blue" (French cops wear blue uniforms). This outburst earned NTM members a three-month prison sentence, later commuted to a fine (though NTM member Joey Starr has been in and out of prison for 15 years for drugs, assault, weapons charges, domestic-abuse, and for spitting on police).

By contrast, the popular rap band Sniper was recently handed a victory in a legal action brought against them in 2004 by Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy over incitement to violence and hatred in their song "La France." They sing: "We're all hot for a mission to exterminate the government and the fascists. . . . France is a bitch and we've been betrayed. . . . We f--France, we don't care about the Republic and freedom of speech. We should change the laws so we can see Arabs and Blacks in power in the Elysée Palace. Things have to explode."

The kingpin of rapping French Francophobes is Mr. R. In his latest single--entitled "FranSSe," from the March 2005 album "PolitiKment IncorreKt"--he likens France to the Third Reich, singing: "France is a bitch, don't forget to f--her to exhaustion. You have to treat her like a whore, man! . . . France is one of the bitches who gave birth to you. . . . I am not at home and I don't give a damn, and besides the state can go f--itself. . . . I pee on Napoleon and General De Gaulle. . . . My niggers and my Arabs, our playground is the street with the most guns. . . . F--ing cops, sons of whores. . . . France is a lousy mother who abandoned her sons on the sidewalk. . . . My Muslim brothers are hated like my Jewish brothers were during the Reich"--at which point Mr. R's video shows footage of Hitler and of Nazi concentration camps.

The video borders on pornography. It shows violent acts supposedly committed by the French Army. France is represented by two naked white women called "Gauloises" (a reference to the ancient inhabitants of France) who perform lewd acts with the French flag while a group of blacks make an obscene gesture. As a disclaimer Mr. R says, "When I speak of France, I don't mean the French people but their leaders. They've been exploiting us for a long time, from slavery to colonization, and they're still jerking us around." Tellingly, in the last words of the song, "France" is replaced by "Europe": "Europe is a bitch, don't forget to f--her to exhaustion. You have to treat her like a whore, man!"--which suggests that the rapper's grievances extend past France to include much of the West.

French intellectuals, journalists, and music critics have taken all this in stride. Fnac, the largest French chain of music stores, selected "PolitiKment IncorreKt" as its top featured album. Fnac's fawning review of the CD says: "And what if the subversive spirit of rock had made its way into French rap? . . . Monsieur R: a revelation." On July 16 2005, Mr. R was among the lead performers at the prestigious Francofolies music festival in La Rochelle.

Francois Grosdidier, a member of parliament from President Chirac's party, called on the minister of Justice to ban the broadcast of the video and take up legal action against Mr. R for "incitement to racism and hatred." The press reacted with outrage--against Grosdidier. The left-wing daily Libération denounced this harassment of rappers as futile. Mr. R, responding to the charge of anti-French racism, stuck to his guns: He's only talking about French leaders, he said, not the French people. As he told the newsmagazine Le Point, "I am not anti-French. I am a Belgian citizen."

Another outspoken defender of Mr. R is Olivier Besancenot, head of the Communist Revolutionary League and a rising star of the French left. In 2002 at the age of 29, Besancenot ran in the first round of the presidential election and came in eighth out of 16 candidates, with over 4 percent of the votes. He actually performs--raps--on Mr. R's latest album. He told Libération that criticism of the video amounted to an "infringement of the freedom of expression."

Mr. R are viewed as role models by many young French males of Arab and African descent who live in France's depressed ethnic suburbs. In such an environment, the anti-white riots which erupted March 2005 in Paris should have come as no surprise.


Monsieur R - FranSSe

The article finishes with this

With luck this new phenomenon might turn out to be a fad which peters out, the way anti-police, anti-white gangsta rap did in America after the early '90s. But in the meantime it will be interesting to see if the French will enforce their laws against racism and anti-Semitism--the toughest in Europe--against this homegrown anti-Western hatred.

No technology, no N-bombs, no armament manufacturing capability.. (well negligible as compared to western nations) and yet such gall.

Truly it is a disgrace for you technologically advanced people to be treated as dirt by these fanatics. It looks like.. a mosquito teasing the elephant.. and the elephant is going mad.

Perhaps earlier civilizations faced the same before they were extinguished by the 'sword of Islam'

The author points out not once but twice the specifically anti-white bias of these Franco-Muslim rappers and protesters. This is the awful truth that even many anti-jihadists are too politically correct to mention: The anti-white racial hatred of many Muslims. They hate us less for our non-Islamic beliefs than for the colour of our skin.

It figures that it took a European to point out this obvious truth. North Americans are generally blind and deaf to repeated Muslim anti-white actions and rhetoric. It's considered racist to notice this, you see.

America has traditionally been culturists. I do not know about French laws. At the turn into the twentieth century, Anthony Comstock used the mail to censor information for the post office. The FCC used to guard the use of our public airwaves. In the 1960s drug references were deemed offensive and not allowed.

Now individual rights have been used to attack culturist rights. That is our right to set standards for our public arena. This is NOT our tradition. We have long been a culturist nation. This is especially true as concerns the use of public airwaves.

Culturism is the opposite of multiculturalism. It says we have a majority culture to guide, protect and promote. People have access to the internet and all they want. But if we curtail speech on public airwaves, as is our right and tradition, it sets a tone. And then we would never have to think of enduring such things on our public television channels.
