Marine Le Pen To Be Prosecuted For 2015 Anti-ISIS Tweets

Via Zerohedge


Prosecutors have called for French right-wing leader Marine Le Pen to be tried for tweeting pictures of atrocities committed by the Islamic State group, judicial sources said.

As VoE reports, Le Pen shared the gruesome images in December 2015, a few weeks after ISIS jihadists killed 130 people in attacks in Paris – and after a French journalist drew a comparison between the jihadist group and her party. Her move sparked widespread condemnation in France.

One of the pictures showed the body of James Foley, an American journalist beheaded by the Sunni extremists. Another showed a man in an orange jumpsuit being run over by a tank and the third showed a Jordanian pilot being burned alive in a cage.

‘Daesh is this!’ Le Pen wrote in a caption, using an Arabic acronym for ISIS.

She is facing a possible three year jail term and a fine of EUR75,000 if an investigating magistrate decides a trial should take place for ‘circulating violent pictures liable to bee seen by children’.

Prosecutors demanded that another member of her National Rally party, Gilbert Collard, also be tried on similar charges.

Le Pen, who lost to Emmanuel Macron in the 2017 presidential elections, was stripped of her parliamentary immunity over the pictures and thereafter charged with circulating violent messages.

Last year, she expressed outrage after the investigative magistrate called for her to undergo psychiatric tests in connection with her tweeting.

She has denounced the case against her as a violation of her freedom of expression.

This is likely to put further pressure on Le Pen, 50, who already faces legal problems over alleged misuse of EU parliamentary funds.

Notably, this newfound pressure to prosecute Le Pen comes as her (renamed) party, The National Rally, is running a close second to Macron’s Republic on the Move (LREM) party in the European parliamentary elections to be held May 23 to 26. An Ifop Fiducial opinion poll in January found that 23 per cent of voters said they would back LREM in the elections, with 21 per cent saying they would support the National Rally.

It is a crushing indictment of Western “civilization” that it not only tolerates, but encourages and supports the cruel murder of innocents – then prosecutes someone who merely offers to show the public the dreadful things its government is paying for.

Apparently committing mass murder is fine – but you mustn’t show the people what it looks like, in case they might start to think.

I’d love Le Pen to be prosecuted (and ideally let off) as even with a bias court the accuser will have to justify themselves lest they simply convict her without trial, something Le Pen can take to the EU court of human rights to over turn the decision so Le Pen can shove the neo-libs precious Talisman right up their neo-lib ar*es. The powers cannot convict Le Pen without hanging themselves unless there is clear islamophobic rhetoric involved (ISIS are Muslims, Muslins aren’t ISIS) by Le Pen

This tells you more about Macron’s regime.

Actually, it tells us more about those behind Macron. All he is, all he ever was, is a “Soros, Deep State” puppet. Typical of these types [for psychopaths never change their modus operandi] is to be relatively youthful, relatively good looking [if you like those sort of looks], with a smooth ersatz Liberal patter, and way of making a snake-oil salesman sound like a priest. Think Obama [“this is the day the seas will stop rising”] ; Trudeau, Guiado. They all look and sound the same. They did the same to Dominique Strauss-Kahn, who wanted to take France away from… Read more »

Dual citoyen Macron is removing the competition.
In this case, the elected leader of France, Marine Le Pen.
This is a Coup within a Coup.
France has not been French since Sarkozy, Soros agent and Hungarian Jew.

They are trying again to discredit her because now the EPE in May/2019 is approaching and she is running first than Macron.

This is another example that France (like Great Britain and Germany) and many other European countries, for all their espoused ‘freedoms’ are operating under a police state, and the EU Court of Human Rights has done, and will do nothing about it.

What nonsense, any kid that searched for ISIS beheading should be taken into care + which children are interested in politics.

NWO censorship on free speech.

PS The beheadings were on the news.
