Dieudonné M'bala M'bala - popularly-known as Dieudonné or 'Dieudo.'
(Dieudonné can be translated as 'God's Gift').
Update Jan 28th 2014 -Today, French law enforcement agents raided several properties as part of an ongoing inquiry into whether Dieudonné has made a fraudulent declaration of bankruptcy to avoid paying fines totalling 65 thousands Euros. He is also suspected of money laundering and of abusing company assets. Almost 600 thousands Euros in cash was recovered during the raids. Not surprisingly, these events have been systematically-portrayed by Dieudonné's most-fanatical supporters as a character-assassination plot - part of global Jewish/Zionist conspiracy to suppress the truth.

Recently, several English people have asked me for my opinion of
'Ridicule alone isn’t enough, you’ve got to be tasteless about it. You’ve got to say things like More women died on the back seat of Edward Kennedy’s car at Chappaquiddick than in the gas chambers at Auschwitz.'
David John Cawdwell Irving (b. 1938)
|In 2012, Dieudonné's home was bought for approximately 500 thousands Euros by 'Les Productions de la Plume' - a company held by his wife, Noémie Montagne.|
|The French riot squad was in attendance as a precaution, when, at the last minute, Dieudonné's show was forbidden to go ahead in Nantes - 6000 tickets had previously been sold (totalling more than quarter of a million Euros)|
'Quenelle' (which once meant a type of dumpling in French cooking) is now a French registered trademark owned by 'Les Productions de la Plume' - a legally-registered commercial company which (on paper) is run by Dieudonné's wife, Noémie Montagne.

'Les Productions de la Plume' was the company organizing, and selling tens of thousands of tickets to, Dieudonné's abusive performances, and it is also behind an on-line shop, http://www.dieudosphere.com/boutique.html selling all-manner of provocative merchandise.
Other ourageously-provocative Dieudonné publications and recordings are available.
On November 11th 2005, the controversial British author and self-styled ‘WWII historical researcher,’ David Irving, was arrested in the southern Austrian State of Styria on charges of ‘denying the Holocaust’ under a warrant issued in 1989. Since the end of WWII, it has been a criminal offence to deny the Holocaust (in public) in numerous European democracies liberated from rule by the closed-logic ‘Nazi’ myth of ‘Aryan Supremacy.’ Although Irving was fully-aware that he had been barred from entering Austria (where he risked 10 years imprisonment), he did not seek to hide his presence. According to his Danish partner, Bente Hogh, Irving had gone there as ‘a bit of fun, to provoke a little bit.’ In other words, the notoriously litigious author had deliberately sought confrontation with the law, and it was particularly shameful that Armistice Day should have been chosen to stage this narcissistic self-publicity stunt.
Soon after his arrest, Irving issued a precisely-worded statement (via his lawyer, Elmar Kresbach), in which he acknowledged ‘the existence of Nazi-era gas chambers.’ Irving seems to have convinced himself that this empty gesture would be sufficient for him to dodge prison.
In 1991, Irving was recorded in Canada, strutting his stuff before a flock of fellow bunker-dwellers.
In 1994, he was the star-turn at a rally organized by the leadership of the ‘American neo-Nazi’ movement and attended by the former, self-appointed leader of the ‘KKK,’ David Duke.
In 2004, Irving was refused entry to New Zealand on the grounds of his 1992 German conviction and because (at various times) he’d been deported from (and/or refused entry to) Canada, Italy, the USA and South Africa. However, this didn’t stop Irving from staging yet another stunt in which he tried (unsuccessfully) to board a Quantas flight from LA to New Zealand.
In 1998, Irving sued Lipstadt and her publishers, Penguin Books, for libel in the English High Court. Lipstadt and Penguin were represented by the noted English barrister, Anthony Julius, who produced Richard J. Evans (Professor of Modern History, Cambridge University) as an expert witness. Prof. Evans and his research assistants took 2 years going through Irving’s published works with a fine tooth-comb. They came up with a stack of distortions, and irrefutable evidence that Irving had also knowingly included material sourced from forged documents. Prof. Evans made the following statement to the court:
|John James Cawdwell (Jack) Irving|
David Irving’s father was a middle-aged, Royal Navy Lieutenant-Commander, Jack Irving, who had survived the (8000+ death) battle of Jutland during WW I, and who went on to serve aboard HMS Edinburgh during the early years of WW II.

During 1962, a series of 37 articles by Irving were accepted by a right wing German magazine. In 1963, these were used as the framework for his first book, ‘The Destruction of Dresden’ — a fully-illustrated account of the carpet bombing of Dresden during February 1945. The morality of the WW II allied bombing campaign was already the focus of a fierce debate in Britain, Germany and the USA. Throughout the 1960s, Irving’s book (in which he described the Dresden raids as ‘the worst single massacre in European history’) featured on best seller lists in numerous countries, and for a long time he was recognised as an authority on the subject. However, the first edition of ‘The Destruction of Dresden,’ in which Irving (aged 25) estimated the number of German deaths at between 100 000 and 250 000, and subsequent editions, in which he reduced his estimate to between 50 and 100 000 deaths, are discredited. It is now a matter of public record that Irving’s figures were bogus and that between 25 000 and 30 000 people actually died in the Dresden raids.
During the 1960s, Irving also brought out: ‘The Mare’s Nest’ (1964) and ‘The Virus House’ - accounts of Nazi secret weapons projects; ‘The (translated) memoirs of Field Marshal Keitel’ (1965); ‘Accident, The Death of General Sikorski’ (1967) - in which Irving implied that the exiled WW II Polish leader had been murdered at the direction of Churchill and other Allied leaders; ‘The Destruction of Convoy PQ-17’ (1968) - in which he libelled Commander Jack Broome RN.

In 1970, Irving and his publisher were sued for libel by Jack Broome. They were forced to pay him £48 000 damages + approximately £500 000 costs and withdraw the offending-book from circulation.

During the 1970s, Irving was introduced to various surviving members of Hitler’s entourage via German far-right groups. He was immediately recognised as a kindred spirit and was given access to private diaries and documentation. Irving then published ‘The (translated) Memoirs of General Gehlen’ (1972) and ‘The Rise and Fall of the Luftwaffe’ (1973) - a biography of Air Marshall Milch. Although his books were particularly well-written, and packed with incidental information which appealed to the general public, Irving was shunned by professional historians.
In 1977, Irving (aged 39) suddenly brought out ‘Hitler’s War,’ a reality-inverting portrayal of the ‘führer’ as an innocent politician whose only crime had been the desire to increase the prosperity of the German people. At this time, Irving had not yet begun to deny the Holocaust. However, he did claim that Hitler had no knowledge of it.
‘Hitler’s War’ was quickly followed by ‘The Trail of the Fox’ — a revisionist biography of Rommel, in which Irving portrayed the Field Marshall as a loyal supporter of Hitler, framed and forced to kill himself by the architects of the plot to murder the führer. Irving condemned the members of the plot as ‘traitors, cowards and manipulators,’ and, thus, sought to justify the barbaric treatment they, and their families, received at the hands of the 'Nazi' regime (after torture, and show-trial, some were skewered-alive on meat hooks - these executions were filmed for Hitler's pleasure).
In 1978, Irving published ‘The War Path’— a reality-inverting account of the period immediately prior to WW II.
Irving's books were commercially successful, but now, for obvious reasons, he was being openly criticised as a ‘Nazi apologist’ by the press and by mainstream academics. He didn’t care, he was living the high-life with a apartment in Mayfair, a Rolls-Royce and a string of attractive, young, female ‘research assistants.’
Following his divorce in 1981, Irving brought out ‘The War Between the Generals’ - in which he again attempted to distort history. This time he ditched his lofty style and descended into the gutter. He described savage disputes which he claimed to have taken place between the military leaders of various nations comprising the Allied High Command during WW II. Irving also dug-up lurid rumours concerning the private lives of various Allied Generals.
Irving then published ‘Uprising’ an analysis of the 1956 Hungarian revolt, in which he made absurd claims that the Soviet regime was controlled by Jews and that the Hungarian people had actually risen up against these Jews not against the Soviets. Irving was now dismissed as a crank and both these books were commercial failures.
When he published ‘Churchill’s War, Volume I’ (1987) - in which he portrayed Britain’s heroic wartime leader as a racist, coward, womanizer, alcoholic and puppet of ‘international Jewry,’ and a biography of Herman Göring (1989) - in which he attempted to convince us that the Reichmarshall was really a fun-loving guy who’d opposed the Nazi persecution of the Jews, the world had almost ceased taking notice of David Irving.
Desperate to maintain his lifestyle, Irving staged his most-notorious self-publicity stunt (i.e. his failed libel suit against Lipstadt and Penguin) which briefly-worked, but then, spectacularly back-fired.
Currently, Irving's readership mainly comprises the adherents of far-right groups, upon whom he depends to peddle his remaindered back-catalogue and latest (self-published) tomes. Prior to his bankruptcy, Irving was accused of stealing valuable historical documents and trying to sell them, and of refusing to refund advance payments for books which he had never produced.
