Bardot On Trial For Using Muslim Slur

Even a blind nut gets a squirrel once in a while.

Former French movie star Brigitte Bardot went on trial Tuesday in Paris on charges of "inciting racial hatred" by using a Muslim slur.

Prosecutors asked the court to give the former sex symbol a two-month suspended prison sentence and fine her $23,760 for saying Muslims were "destroying our country and imposing its acts," according to Reuters.

"I am a little tired of prosecuting Mrs. Bardot," Prosecutor Anne de Fontette told the court.

This is the fifth such trial for the blonde, best known for her films of the 1950s and '60s. She has been fined four times for inciting racial hatred.

"I am fed up with being under the thumb of this population which is destroying us, destroying our country and imposing its acts," Bardot said, according to Reuters. (H/T - FOXNews)

Okay, Bardot is a complete loon, but in this case, can you honestly say she doesn't have a valid argument here? Political correctness is a larger problem in France than it is here - as if that were possible - and the result has seen radical Islamists gaining a foothold in certain areas of the country. Remember the 2005 riots? Whom do you think was behind it?

I think Bardot knows who, as does the rest of the country. Problem is, everyone else is turning a blind eye to it.
