A French Court Has Ordered A Psychiatric Exam Of Opposition Leader Marine Le Pen.
So Much for Western “democracy.” Nothing is less wecomed in the West than democracy.
It has long been understood in Europe that the resurrection of French President Charles de Gaulle’s French nationalism under Marine Le Pen was unacceptable to Washington. De Gaulle was not Washington-compliant, and Washington does not want another non-compliant French nationalist.
Marine Le Pen, a French patriot, seems destined for the fate of Joan of Arc. The French establishment has been after Le Pen for a long time. She has already had her parliamentary immunity stripped for a tweet and faces three years in prison if convicted by her enemies for a simple free speech statement in defense of French sovereighty. Now she is in trouble for posting on Twitter images of Daesh executing people.
