    Default French rap star facing prison 4 'dissin' Country

    French rap star facing prison
    For calling the country a 'slut'
    http://www.nme.com/news/Monsieur-R/23193

    A French rap star is to appear in court today (May 30) charged with offending public decency with a song in which he referred to the country as a "slut" and vowed to "piss" on national heroes Napoleon and Charles de Gaulle.

    Monsieur R is facing three years in prison or a €75,000 (£51,000) fine after an MP from the ruling UMP party launched legal action against him over his current album 'Politikment Incorrekt', reports The Guardian.

    In the video for the song 'FranSSe', Monsieur R, whose real name is Richard Makela, appears dressed as a gendarme with two naked women rubbing against the French flag as he rapped: "France is a bitch, don't forget to @#%$ her till she's exhausted/You have to treat her like a slut, man." At another point in the song, he sang: "I piss on Napoleon and on General de Gaulle."

    MP Daniel Mach proposed a law making it a criminal offence to insult the dignity of France and the French state upon hearing the album. He has since taken action against Makela, 30, for making and disseminating "violent and pornographic messages" to which minors could get access.

    The case is the latest in a series of stand-offs between MPs and rap stars. In 2003, Nicolas Sarkozy, the interior minister, brought a criminal case against the rap band Sniper, saying their music was anti-semitic, racist and insulting.

    In one song, 'La France', they referred to their home country as a "bitch". The case was thrown out of court last year. The same lawyer who defended Sniper is acting for Makela.

    Makela, who maws born and brought up in neighbouring Belgium, told Le Parisien he did not target any particular group but rapped against "the system".

    The youths began burning cars in reaction to a police operation in which a young man was arrested several hours earlier. Officials said they did not yet know how many cars had been burnt. There were also incidents in the neighbouring area of Clichy-Sous-Bois, where last year's riots began after two boys died while they were apparently fleeing police. -- "French youths clash with police"

    "Yes. I believe there's a high potential for the spread of this type of rebellion and rioting in other parts of Europe. ....There's a large number of Muslims and Africans living clandestinely in Italy going from one place to another looking for jobs. But they're being treated very viciously by the police, very suspiciously by the public, and they're not able to sustain themselves. That also is a prime population ready to revolt at any moment."--Behzad Yaghmaian

    the french have their shit RIGHT
    over in america people are being bitchslapped by their government and they aint doing shit all
    at least the french kids aint putting up with bullshit

    and up here in canada stuff still pretty good, but recently the natives have been fucking shit up and causing riots

    basically the way it works is that the police officers are simply the bitches of the rich people, they are used to keep the people from fucking the rich people's shit up

    the police are just a gang run by the rich to help stop any revolutions, but if the police can be enlightened then a revolution would be extremely easy, but that would take a big change

    the system is fucked up is this some sort of newsflash?

    nothing going to change though, not until people like you are locked up for listening to rap and being black or brown or from foreign countries or for wanting to better yourselves or change things so that more people would have opportunities

    people are too seperated and egotistical and materialistic right now, no one cares about shit unless its effecting them directly

    if everyone just stopped working one day and refused to go along with the bullshit you better believe the world would change, but who wants to NOT go to work and NOT get paid so they CANT buy that new shirt or new car, not many right now

    even gas prices, if everyone boycotted the gas stations or just went to ONE company for their gas then the prices would drop across the board, thats a fact, it happened already in Canada during SARS when people refused to go out bc of the epidemic

    shits fucked

    Keep it blacker than the back of ya necK

    First of all, Monsieur R is not a french rapper, he is a belgian rappeur, i don't know why this bitch talk about france?
    This nigga is a wack rapper, they have not to censored but Monsieur R say a lot of bullshit, he compared France and The German's SS.

    Furthemore, when these bitches try to censored rappers like Lunatic or Minister Amer, these group are very old, and the governement said that their old text xere at the origin of the french's riot, i can't stand that these bitches try to say that the problem is the rap music, but don't worry, we are on the streets to keep the Rap Livin'.
    Word Up!

    BECARFUL: In USA, they say a lot of bullshit about France, i remember that i saw a french's map on fire , and they said that there were Muslim Riot. hahahaha, so becarful, American's media are bicthes too. Even if the french's riot were very hot lol
