Just when you thought France was getting more sensitive about the jihad threat.
You thought it would stop slandering and de-platforming enemies of jihad terror? No. The following Soviet-style judgments of madness follow. And what comes next? The answer is clear enough.
AFP reported Tuesday that French “far-right” (ie, as opposed to mass Muslim migration and French cultural and political suicide) leader Marine Le Pen “is on trial on Wednesday on charges of violating hate speech laws by tweeting pictures of Islamic State atrocities , a case she dismissed as a violation of freedom of expression. “
It is no coincidence that Le Pen scores high in the polls , and she "will likely face Emmanuel Macron again in next year's presidential game, after her National Rally made its strongest showing ever in the 2017 ballot."
She is on trial and was previously ordered to undergo psychiatric tests for `` sharing the gruesome images in December 2015, a few weeks after Islamic State jihadists killed 130 people in attacks in Paris, in response to a journalist who compared between IS and its party. One of the photos showed the body of James Foley, an American journalist beheaded by the Islamic militants. Another showed a man in orange overalls being run over by a tank, and the third a Jordanian pilot burned alive in a cage. "Daesh is this!" Le Pen wrote in a caption, with an Arabic acronym for IS. “
Why did she do that? Out of a lurid fascination with blood and gore, or some secret sympathy for the Islamic State's jihad? No. She tweeted those images because her party was compared to the Islamic State in the French media. In an effort to reduce the national discussion to some semblance of mental health, she pointed out - with visual aids - that her party did not behave in the same way as the Islamic State and left no trace of bloodshed and death in its wake.
But that means nothing to the French authorities who are desperate to destroy it, its movement and all opposition to their globalist, socialist, open borders agenda. According to The Local she was accused of spreading “violent messages inciting terrorism or pornography or seriously damaging human dignity”. The Orwellian character of the whole scenario was reinforced by the fact that this order was issued on September 11.
Still trying to bring a touch of common sense into this fantastically insane public discourse, Le Pen says, “I thought I'd been through it all: well, no! For denouncing the horrors of Daesh (Isis) through tweets, the 'justice system' referred me for a psychiatric assessment. How far will they go ?! “
How far? Le Pen is defiant: "Of course I'm not going to this psychiatric investigation and I'll wait and see how the magistrate will force me." Indeed, we are all waiting. Now that the French authorities have embarked on Soviet tactics to brand their opposition as mentally incompetent, what other Soviet tactics will follow? Will the "security staff" knock on Le Pen's door at XNUMX:XNUMX am and drag her to a prison cell and torture her physically and psychologically? Will she end up in a camp where the baton will be used liberally until she emerges “reeducated”, loves Big Brother and proclaims that Islam is a religion of peace and tolerance that has nothing to do with terrorism?
Scenarios like this are no longer hysterical fantasies, if they ever were. When Le Pen is ordered to undergo a psychiatric examination for the perfectly healthy act of resisting the Islamic State and refuting claims that her movement is the same, all bets are off. France, like Britain, is rapidly descending into totalitarianism, with Biden's US not far behind, and there's no telling where it will end. If thoughts deviating from the agenda of the left-wing establishment can be prosecuted and seen as evidence of insanity, then the door has opened to all the other features of the reign of terror that always accompanies the rule of the hard-left.
And we will see that soon. Will the French authorities convict, fine or imprison Le Pen? Or is she declared mentally incompetent and locked up in a psychiatric hospital? Will others who declare that Islam is not a religion of peace and that mass Muslim migration to Europe is unwise also be declared insane and taken to hospitals and / or prisons? Will France and other Eurosocialist autocracies open gulags to those who dare to say that jihad terror is something that decent people should resist?
Le Pen also stated, “It's unbelievable. This regime is really starting to worry me. You and I both, sister. But she is already withdrawing: in a debate Thursday Macron's Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin claimed that Le Pen "has gotten a little soft ... you have to take some vitamins, you're not strong enough here." He explained, “If I understand you correctly, you are willing not to even enact any laws on religion, and you say that Islam is not even a problem. You have gone pretty far, I imagine it will disappoint a lot of your constituents. “
Le Pen agreed: “Yes, I can confirm that I have no intention of attacking Islam, which is a religion like any other. And because I am deeply attached to our French values, I want to maintain total freedom of religion. That's my opinion."
Excellent. But what if many adherents of that “religion like any other”, on the basis of its main sacred texts, believe that freedom of religion should be accorded to them, but not to those of other religions, at least without the severe restrictions of dhimmitude? Marine Le Pen turned out to be the only French politician willing to face that problem. It's not Darmanin: he's got it already stated that 'Islamism, the most powerful ideology in the world, has robbed Islam of its voice', assuming a distinction between 'Islamism' (which presumably indicates the political, violent and supremacist aspects of Islam) and a true Islam that does not exist and has never existed in the Islamic tradition. With Le Pen under fire and seemingly collapsing under pressure, France may lose its best hope of staving off the inexorable march of "Islamism".
