Skip to comments.Anti-gay, anti-Islam Bardot to be sued

It takes a lot for the French to lose patience with their ageing stars, and Brigitte Bardot, now an unabashed fan of the National Front leader, Jean-Marie Le Pen, was given a lot of rope.
Yesterday the free ride for her tirades against the decadence of modern society ended after two anti-racist and human rights movements announced they would take the 68-year-old to court.
Her latest outburst, a book called Un Cri Dans Le Silence, attacks Islam, gays, the unemployed, teachers and illegal immigrants, and calls for a return of the guillotine.
She says that gays are fairground freaks, teachers arrive at work with greasy hair wearing disgusting jeans and muddy trainers, and that "the professional unemployed" don't even want to work illegally.
She rails against what she claims is the "Islamisation of France", and after a lifelong campaign against the death penalty, she says the guillotine should be brought back for child-killers.
The Movement Against Racism and For the Friendship of Peoples (MRAP) and the League of Human Rights said yesterday they would sue Ms Bardot. Mouloud Aounit, the president of MRAP, said: "We expect justice to hit her hard. We need a ruling which will dissuade and prevent her from making further outbursts."
The former film star, who once shook middle-class moralists with her libertine lifestyle, said it had been her intention to shock by "saying out loud what people think to themselves" - a phrase invented by Mr Le Pen.
Ms Bardot, who is married to a National Front executive, Bernard d'Ormale, was last interviewed by Paris Match, at her seaside villa in St Tropez and the nearby farmhouse.
She claimed that it was while driving between the two houses on her way to feed the goats that she realised that "the intrinsic and fundamental values of mankind no longer existed".
Indeed. There's nothing like Stalinism when it comes to censoring free speech, is there?
Leftists are enemies of mankind.
France sounds like an Islamist run paradise already. Now all they need to do is implement stoning as a punishment.
I guess the common sense liberal French are really traditional values conservatives of old. Bring back the fifties.
These Euro-creeps aren't very big on free speech are they?
More evidence, as if any were needed, of the wisdom of our founding fathers!
She has seen the light. I for one wish her good luck.
You don't want to see recent photos of her. Remember as she was.
No they're not.
They prosecuted a fellow in Germany for a remark he made on an internet forum recently. Here in the UK you can be extradited to the rest of Europe for crimes- including these types of crimes. Theoretically, if someone in Europe didn't like something I said here on FR, they could press charges and, I suppose, have me hauled off to Belgium or where ever to face the court.
And the hair of 6,000 LLamas.
Well, there's one French person I like. (Note: she shaves her armpits. See post 13.)
