I suppose sometime this fall, (after the October surprises) someone will do a “Leave McCain Alone!” Chris Crocker parody, too.

Anybody remember Brigitte Bardot? She was one of the world’s most beautiful women in the ’50’s and ’60’s; a model, singer, and the star of dozens of films. When she retired from acting in the early 70’s she became a vocal animal rights activist.
I would never have figured her for a “hater”. Yet, apparently that’s just what she is because she’s on trial for her insulting hate speech, and this is not the first time, either. It’s the fifth time.
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.”
How dare she speak her mind like that, as if France is a free country!
Seriously, I had no idea how bad it was in France for free speech. This is absolutely outrageous. I can’t help wondering what Sarkozy thinks of this. What do most French people think?
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.
Being an animal rights advocate, she’s pretty ticked about the sheep slaughtering:
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”.
You know what? I think she must be a tough old broad, if she’s been fined four times already, and she’s still willing to speak out.
Vive la Bardot!

Seraphic Secret has long maintained that within two or three generation—unless the French radically reform her policies of appeasement—France will be an Islamic State ruled by Sharia. Jews are now emigrating from France to Israel, America and Canada in record numbers.
The larger question is: How long before Europe becomes Eurabia? Make no mistake about it, all of Europe is in play.
And Time: Is Brigitte Bardot Bashing Islam?
UPDATE (June 3rd):
France’s 1960s screen icon Brigitte Bardot received a 15,000-euro (23,000 dollar) fine on Tuesday for inciting hatred against Muslims.
In December 2006, the film star-turned-animal rights activist wrote a letter to France’s then interior minister, current President Nicolas Sarkozy, arguing that Muslims should stun animals before slaughtering them during the Aid al-Kabir holiday.
She outraged anti-racist groups by saying: “I’ve had enough of being led by the nose by this whole population which is destroying us, (and) destroying our country by imposing their ways.”
This makes five convictions for her on similar charges. And she’s not quitting.
Bardot, now 73 and suffering from arthritis, was absent from Tuesday’s court hearing in Paris. She wrote to the court saying: “I’m sickened by how (these organisations) are harassing me.”
She added: “I will not shut up until stunning is carried out” on animals before their ritual slaughter.
I’m sickened by it, too.
Gad, I’m not sure this is even worth a blog post. What else do we expect from Dhimmi Jimmy Carter?
There he is, allowing himself to be used for propaganda purposes:

President Bush declined to visit Arafat’s Mausoleum back in January to the “deep disappointment” of the Palestinians.

Now he’s hugging Hamas officials.
The man has no shame.
At least, at present we can say that Carter is not acting in any official capacity on behalf of the United States.
Sadly, this is basically what an Obama foreign policy would look like.
Gay Patriot is calling for Carter to be censured by the US Senate:
I called both of my US Senators this morning (Dole & Burr) to request that they introduce a Resolution of Censure against former President Jimmy Carter. Including his term in office, but mostly after, Carter has a history of actions intended to undermine and destroy the United States of America. His meeting this week with Hamas should be the last straw for those who believe in this nation.
He’s urging readers to contact their Senators if they agree.

Just when you thought it couldn’t get worse:
Carter had plans to meet with Islamic Jihad, too?
So Bush has been illegitimate all these years? I thought you had to go wading in the feverswamps of the Democratic Underground or Huffpo to hear this crapola any more.
Wow, keep digging, O.
Oh…. more boob bait for the bubbas:
Obama would ‘immediately’ look into prosecuting Bush Officials.
Yeah, this guy’s gonna “heal the nation”.
