“I thought I had been through it all: well, no!”
As much as we complain about political correctness in the United States, it seems things are much worse in Europe. Marine Le Pen, who is frequently described in media reports as far right, recently shared some images on Twitter of people who had been slaughtered by ISIS. Now she is being ordered to see a psychiatrist.
The Local reports:
Marine Le Pen furious after being ordered to undergo psychiatric tests
Marine Le Pen, the leader of the French far right has been left shocked and furious after a court ordered her to be examined by a psychiatrist to determine if she “is capable of understanding remarks and answering questions”.
Le Pen, who is head of the former National Front party – now National Rally (Rassemblement National) revealed on Twitter her shock and anger at being ordered to undertake a psychiatric assessment.
The unusual summoning is in relation to Le Pen having tweeted out gruesome propaganda images from terror group Isis that showed the bodies of people having been executed by the so-called Islamic State.
In March Le Pen was charged with circulating “violent messages that incite terrorism or pornography or seriously harm human dignity” and that can be viewed by a minor.
And as part of their investigation it appears magistrates in Nanterre near Paris have ordered Le Pen to visit a psychiatrist for an expert assessment.
So ISIS brutally murders people, Le Pen tweets photos of the carnage, and authorities want her to see a psychiatrist. The world has truly gone mad. Le Pen reacted with incredulity:
“I thought I had been through it all: well, no! For denouncing the horrors of Daesh (Isis) by tweets the “justice system” has referred me for a psychiatric assessment. How far will they go?!” she said on Thursday.
Le Pen photographed and tweeted out the order with the words: “It’s really incredible. This regime is really starting to worry me,” suggesting that the case was part of a government plot to discredit her.

Though the law requires psychological assessments in such cases, Le Pen voiced outrage at the decision and said she would defy the order: “I’d like to see how the judge would try to force me to do it.” She also posted an image of the court order on her Twitter account with the words: “It’s genuinely STAGGERING. This regime is REALLY starting to be frightening.”
She concluded the Tweet with her initials, shorthand to signify that she wrote the message, not a staff member.
