We Are NOT Charlie Hebdo!

TruthTroubadour Published on Nov 5, 2015

This song was inspired by the book edited by Kevin Barrett by the same title. In fact, Kevin contributed ideas for two of these verses, making him a co-writer. The incident in Paris began on Jan 7, 2015 and covered several days of violence not only at the Charlie Hebdo magazine office, but also at a Kosher Deli, and at shoot out locations. One scene of the black-hooded terrorists had them shooting an allegedly French Muslim policeman in the head at close range, but there was no blood or brain splatter on the pavement. This was taken off the internet on grounds that it was shocking footage. Suspects were identified because one of them left their ID in the get-away car. There are a variety of concerns and questions written about in the We Are NOT Charlie Hebdo book, and the writers do not necessarily agree with each other on things. So this song is the songwriter’s own take on what may or may not prove to have happened. (See London Calling 70705 for a similar artistic rendering of that event.) Here are the lyrics to this song:

We Are NOT Charlie Hebdo!
(Nous Sommes Pas Charlie Hebdo!)

Did you know Charlie Hebdo was a bigot magazine?

And it’s not really funny to be hateful and mean!

If you use that slogan: “Je Suis Charlie!” (I Am Charlie!)

It’s like identifying with the bigotry!

And that’s why we have to say!

Chorus:
We are NOT Charlie Hebdo!
We are NOT Charlie Hebdo!
We are NOT Charlie Hebdo!
And we will never be!

Vicious cartoons target Muslims for the hate!
Yet every “act of terror” benefits the police state!
Sometimes they murder… Sometimes they stage a play…
Either way it’s for war, and to take your rights away!
And that’s why we have to say! (chorus)

That cop who got shot in the head at close range
When no blood was splattered, well, that was rather strange…
And what kind of “terrorist” leaves his ID card behind?
The kind they frame as “patsy” is the kind that comes to mind!
And that’s why we have to say! (chorus)

We are NOT Charlie Hebdo! We are Helric Fredou!
An honest detective who was following a clue…
Did Helric uncover the cover-up too?
Did he get suicided ‘cause o’ somethin’ that he knew?
And that’s why we have to say! (chorus)

We are NOT Charlie Hebdo! We are Dieudonné!
The funniest truth teller “en France” today!
His kind o’ humor’s what we call “engagé”…
Yet in the name of “freedom”, they want to lock him away!
And that’s why we have to say! (chorus)

When France stood for Palestine to be a nation state
That nutty Netanyahu warned of violence and hate…
But what kind of Muslim would sabotage success?
The kind they use in “false flags” when they make a bloody mess!
And that’s why we have to say! (chorus)

Repeat verse 1.

Chorus in French:
Nous sommes pas Charlie Hebdo!
Nous sommes pas Charlie Hebdo!
Nous sommes pas Charlie Hebdo!
Et nous (ne) serons jamais!

End with chorus in English.
