Brigitte Bardot, movie star turned animal rights activist, is ON TRIAL in France again for exercising free speech--or, as the court puts it, "inciting racial hatred." This time around (she has been similarly charged four times before), the 73-year-old Bardot has been taken to court by an "anti-racism" group for a 2004 letter she wrote to then-Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy. (Who leaked the letter, Sarko?) In it, she bemoaned the Muslim ritual slaughter of sheep during the Muslim festival of Eid-al-Kabir and referred to Muslims as "this population that leads us around by the nose, [and] which destroys our country."
Prosecutors are seeking an unusually harsh sentence of $22,000 and a two-month suspended jail term for the act of writing a sentence.
"I'm a bit tired of trying Madame Bardot," admitted assistant prosecutor Anne de Fonette, as she urged the court to impose "the most striking and remarkable" punishment in the case.
Any criticism of Islamization is increasingly VERBOTEN in Europe. Which makes you wonder, on pondering the prosecutor's chilling words: Is this Free France or Vichy France Redux?
