The French government has ordered Marine Le Pen, leader of the right wing National Front Party to undergo a psychiatric examination "to determine whether she must be confined to a mental institution for her own well-being." The proximate inspiration for this coercive order is Le Pen's opposition to the continued importation of Islamic fanatics into France.
"This drastic move was made necessary by the earlier failure of massive fines imposed after Le Pen posted photos of ISIS terrorists massacring unbelievers on the Internet," Macron explained. "In France we respect the rights of individuals to freely practice their religion. The tenets of Islam do not merely grant Muslims the right to kill unbelievers, it mandates it as an obligation to demonstrate ones commitment to the faith. Granted, it could be argued that this obligation conflicts with every French citizen's right to life. It is the delicate job of the Government to try to balance these conflicting rights. Our efforts are impeded by interference of Ms. Le Pen's nonconforming attitudes."
"Let me emphasize that we are not meting out a punishment, but are seeking a cure," French President Emmanuel Macron said. "It is the obligation of the state to see that every person is properly cared for. Idiosyncratic objections must not be permitted to divert us from this humane course of action."
