With all that France has endured lately at the hands of whacked-out Muslim terrorists; with wave after wave of Muslim immigrants flooding into France to take advantage of French freedom and welfare; with all the Muslim no-go Sharia zones all over France; with Imams preaching racial hatred in every mosque from Nice to Normandy that is not only insulting, it is criminal, and nary a peep from French leadership.
But when a French patriot, like Brigitte Bardot, says anything that can be remotely interpreted as “insulting,” and it is time for vigorous prosecution. If she said that she thinks black burkas are depressing, and recommended more pleasing colors, and a handful of Muslim zealots complained to the authorities, then Madame Bardot would find herself in handcuffs again, forced to surrender more cash or time in the slammer to appease a cult of scumbags. What the hell is the matter with French leaders?!
The French are famous for cowardice. It’s a global joke. This action by the French authorities sinks to a new level well below cowardice. The word has not been invented yet to describe it.
The official French military salute should be the same gesture an American football referee uses to signify a touchdown.
Former film star Brigitte Bardot on trial
French former film star Brigitte Bardot went on trial on Tuesday for insulting Muslims, the fifth time she has faced the charge of “inciting racial hatred” over her controversial remarks about Islam and its followers, Reuters reports.
Prosecutors asked that the Paris court hand the 73-year-old former sex symbol a two-month suspended prison sentence and fine her 15,000 euros ($23,760) for saying the Muslim community was “destroying our country and imposing its acts”.
Since retiring from the film industry in the 1970s, Bardot has become a prominent animal rights activist but she has also courted controversy by denouncing Muslim traditions and immigration from predominantly Muslim countries.
She has been fined four times for inciting racial hatred since 1997, at first 1,500 euros and most recently 5,000.
Prosecutor Anne de Fontette told the court she was seeking a tougher sentence than usual, adding: “I am a little tired of prosecuting Mrs Bardot.”
Bardot did not attend the trial because she said she was physically unable to. The verdict is expected in several weeks.
French anti-racist groups complained last year about comments Bardot made about the Muslim feast of Eid al-Adha in a letter to President Nicolas Sarkozy that was later published by her foundation.
Muslims traditionally mark Eid al-Adha by slaughtering a sheep or another animal to commemorate the prophet Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his son on God’s orders.
France is home to 5 million Muslims, Europe’s largest Muslim community, making up 8 percent of France’s population.
“I am fed up with being under the thumb of this population which is destroying us, destroying our country and imposing its acts,” the star of ‘And God created woman’ and ‘Contempt’ said.
Bardot has previously said France is being invaded by sheep-slaughtering Muslims and published a book attacking gays, immigrants and the unemployed, in which she also lamented the “Islamisation of France”.
