French cultural hypocrisy: The Quenelle

A short feature with Hafsa Kara-Mustapha on Iraqi TV station about the quenelle, a French anti-establishment gesture that was subject to great white symbolic violence from the French thought police last year. It looks into the work and trajectory of French comic Dieudonn√©,  France's enduring Vichy complex and the impunity with its political-cultural untouchable elite operate. 

A similar hornet's assemblage, was kicked over by the Paris killings last week, prompting whiteous indignation from the same people who covered up, excused or denied that there was a massacre in Dhaka on May 5-6th 2013.

Decolonial English speakers are advised to make efforts to understand the cultural field, of resistance as well as white supremacy in France.
