IN 2015, THE PRESIDENT OF THE NATIONAL FRONT SHARED PICTURES ON HER TWITTER ACCOUNT SHOWING THE TERRORIST GROUP’S ABUSES OF CIVILIANS.
Marine Le Pen was immediately indicted for posting “violent images” on her Twitter account, which included a man on fire, according to the prosecutor’s office.
Her parliamentary immunity was lifted last November because she belongs to the National Front, and the consensus is that if you are from the National Front, then you are a despicable human being who doesn’t deserve any clemency. Two months earlier, house representative Gilbert Collard, a Front national member and lawyer, who had been accused of the same offence, was indicted too.
In December 2015, a preliminary investigation into the “broadcast of violent images” was opened by the Nanterre Public Prosecutor’s Office, followed by two separate investigations, one for each of the two politicians. If found guilty, they face three years in jail and up to $90.000 fine if it can be established that the pictures could be seen by a minor.
Twitter account are full of pictures of beheaded people, hate speech and antisemitic slurs, many of them posted by young muslims who benefit from total immunity. But every move, every word, every hint from members of the Front national are closely scrutinised and prosecuted.
