Quenelle des quenelles

It sounds better than ‘Dumpling of dumplings’ – although the English translation might be more apt as far as my silhouette is concerned. But let’s stick with the French for now…

Following my participation at last month’s Forum de l’Europe, it was suggested that I should perform at this year’s Bal des Quenelles – an annual celebration every Summer Solstice at the country residence of France’s best known comic and inventor of the Quenelle, Dieudonné. I waited patiently for confirmation and was rewarded with the offer of a 15-minute first-half slot, all expenses paid and a VIP backstage pass.

Two days before I was due to take the Eurostar to Paris, the mayoress of St-Lubin-de-la-Haye – a nondescript liberal feminist author – threatened to shut down the event, predictably citing ‘anti-Semitism’ and the risk of a breach of the peace. Dieudonné responded with typical defiance and humour. The mayoress’s letter was in fact a thinly disguised attempt to dissuade people from making the effort to attend: with the theme announced as a ‘Yellow Vests Special’ and an almost perfect weather forecast, the authorities’ frantic scaremongering was clearly intended to put a damper on things. But there was no doubt in my mind that Chabloz would go to the ball.

I did not advertise my participation in advance for several reasons. My legal case is still ongoing; I had no intention of providing the enemies of free speech and their system drones with an excuse to bring further charges against me. As well, the day before last month’s Forum de l’Europe, my charming in-house critics – those wanting me ‘surgically removed from movement circles’ [sic]  – did everything in their power to try and persuade the organisers to dump me. Yes, that’s right: it’s no longer a case of simply defending myself against the usual suspects. I am being attacked from all sides, even by my own ‘compatriots’ – people who like to portray themselves as upstanding role models of western values of truth, honour, courage… Hmmm…

Last month’s Forum de l’Europe did me a world of good. Once home again in England, I was blessed with divine inspiration: my little pastiche of Prévert’s Les Feuilles mortes used as an intro brought forth an idea to parody Claude Nougaro’s famous number Le jazz et la java, re-entitled for the occasion Le gaz et la Shoah. Having seen Dieudonné’s show La bête immonde in Lausanne in 2016, I was aware of the comic’s huge respect for Nougaro, whose original version I had sung as part of my concours d’entrée for Lausanne Conservatoire of Music way back when…

Even if you don’t understand French, you will see in the short clip below that my idea worked well and was appreciated. I shan’t boast of my encounters in the VIP backstage area. Discretion oblige…

A wonderful opportunity for which I am very thankful, especially to Dieudonné, my two French friends who pulled out all the stops to make this happen and to Forum de l’Europe‘s Yvan Benedetti.


If there is one person responsible for having raised the profile of revisionism – and notably of Robert Faurisson over the past decade – it is indeed Dieudonné.

Satire and humour are our greatest weapons against the tyranny imposed upon us by an enemy with unlimited means and disproportionate power.

The only logical explanation for the in-house attacks against me is that these were part of a controlled opposition campaign: the enemies of free speech fear a similar revisionist breakthrough here in England as the one provoked across the Channel by Dieudonné’s support for Faurisson.

Asides the tiresome orders attached to my suspended prison sentence, the legal case against me generated tens of thousands of pounds-worth of free publicity. I am, after all, an artist. A new strategy was necessary and, therefore, those who formerly had supported me suddenly turned against me.

It didn’t work. I kept quiet about my invitation to appear with Dieudonné till now, and I hereby offer this quenelle of quenelles to all my detractors without exception. Qu’ils la sentent bien…

    Welcome back. You have been missed.

      Thanks, Stephan. It’s only just being to sink in…

    Very good show. Congratulations. I am sure qu’ils l’ont bien sentie. As a follow up I went to your “https://alisonchabloz.com/2015/08/17/my-quenelle-is-a-massive-up-yours-dedicated-to-my-abusers/” very good too (and you have just taught me that Tournesol’s mother was a Scot, indeed and not a “Scott” as I would have spelled it?). As you can see, I read you with utmost attention.

    Take care!

    (BTW I hate it when the attendance whistles for appraisal the Hi-han-kee way… it is a form of submission to Sam, the alpha-male… but of course, they don’t realise it.)

      Thank you! ‘Scott’ is used for names, hence the understandable confusion.

      I prefer whistling to booing!

    Superb, Alison! Well done indeed! And your analysis of the in-house situation is spot on. I have no doubt that the traitors, musty dusty boof and pigeon in the lead, are feeling your quenelle — tail between their legs if they have a shred of sense left. Along with all else, you are making a first-class diplomatic job of establishing a real link between the French and the British Movements. You are a living doll, and a pretty brilliant one at that!

    Lots of love,
    Sophie

    Are you a “known agitator” though? Or “on the run” like Mycroft? Oh! Big Suze is watching!

    • Alison Chabloz June 24, 2019 / 11:25 am

      Suze would do well to occupy herself with other matters.

    Twelve months; it seems so much longer. That being said, wonderful to know you are back again!

    Hi Alison,
    Well done and I’m glad you enjoyed the occasion in France. X

    Welcome back! Looking forward to the next act in Alison Chabloz’s Travelling Soap and Lampshade Circus – “The Greatest Shoah on Earth!”

      “The smart way…” Hmmm. Smart only if the ultimate aim is never-ending civil unrest. Divide and rule…

    M’Bala

    Dieudonné à La France un poète de la Liberté
    Quelle journée de malchance pour les têtes enfoirées
    C’est un Roy de la cause de toute l’humanité
    Homme de droit et de prose, il est déterminé

    Implacable jovialiste dans la guerre de naguère
    Inlassable polémiste, pas moyen d’le faire taire
    Compagnon de Jeanne d’Arc, de son Gilet Jaune, fier
    Il fait plus qu’un spectacle, c’est un maître hors pair

    Ce rebel ensorcèle criminels sans cervelle
    Tous ces polichinelles n’arrivent pas à sa semelle
    De querelles en quenelles, avec belles ritournelles
    Dieudonné à La France un poète de la Délivrance

    “Hello fellow slaves” – – jim le réveilleur

    The French Branch of The Royal Imperial Establishment of Super Stupid Zionists, through their masonic nutwork of evil-zewers, has been harassing Dieudonné in the courts and through their Merde-Stream Media. The gang bankster system had banned him so the only way that was left for him to make money was to take cash and other offerings from the people who came to see his shows and watched his videos. The despised courts are sending him to jail for tax evasion because they found cash in his house…

    Meanwhile, the courts won’t be harassing an enraged and possessed, strange and deranged, demented and indoctrinated Dr. Bata Cataclan from the Rat Face Kookoo Klock Klan, an escaped zew who decided to crash a private party, on private property, uninvited, by plowing into the stage with his 4-wheel drive jeep and wounding two or three stage crew members, breaking sound and lighting equipment and screaming in Dieudonné’s face: ANTISEMITE!! ANTISEMITE!!!

    You can bet he won’t be accused of a hate crime.

    Dieudonné is holding the Ass Media responsible for inciting such acts of senseless violence by the constant lying, defaming and demonization of Mister Dieudonné M’Bala M’Bala.

    The French Masonic network is what prevents political reform. The orders come down from above and they all follow in lock step, just like well trained robots equipped with Artificial Stupidity.

    What’s worst? Artificial Intelligence? Or Artificial Stupidity?
