Brigitte Bardot fined for anti-Muslim remarks.

In a post from April, [Brigitte Bardot on Trial] I wrote how former 1960s sex symbol and animal rights activist was on trial in France for allegedly 'inciting racial hatred' for comments on Muslims and their Eid ul-Adha festival, which involves the slaughter of sheep. Now, according to reports on, she has been found guilty and fined 15,000-euro (23,000 dollar).

Other reports say Bardot was also ordered to pay 1000 euro in damages to the MRAP anti-racism group, and one euro in symbolic damages to the LICRA league against racism and the Human Rights League.

I've read several news reports of the case and the comment which is said to be the " offense" is this;
"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."

Seems quite tame as far as "racists" comments go.

Did she speak the truth? Are the estimated five million Muslims in France changing the country? I'm sure they are........that many people are bound to affect some change.

Is the change brought about in France by the Muslim immigrants for the betterment of France?
I suppose that is up to the French people to decide.
