French Fascism

So the French government believes it has the authority to ban Muslim headscarves and other conspicuous religious symbols in French schools. But if a private citizen, Brigitte Bardot, merely says something critical about Muslims or other immigrants, well that's also a crime.

What you wear is the business of the State. What you say is the business of the State.

But give France credit: it's an equal-opportunity oppressor: it persecutes Muslim immigrants one day, national treasures the next. They got the égalité down -now they just need to work on the fraternité and, especially, the liberté.
