French far-right MEP Le Pen compares Muslim’s prayers to Nazi soldiers, deprived of immunity

Still on time for the pick of the day!!! I will be short because the videos speak already for themselves.

European news, French MEP Le Pen, leader of the far right party Front Nationale was accused of  inciting racial hatred while comparing Muslim street prayers to the occupation of France by Nazi Germany. The European Parliament had removed her immunity and a trial might be pending, which would lead to a major setback for the French nationalist party.

The speech that triggered debate and raised polemic was the one made in December 2010 to the crowd of supporters; part of the speech stated that France was seeing:

“more and more veils and burkas, after that came praying on the streets, I’m sorry but some people are very fond of talking about the Second World War and about the occupation, so let’s talk about the occupation, because that is what is happening here, there are no tanks or soldiers, but it is still an occupation and it weighs on people.” (RT)

Short recap of what happened…

  1. She is a very controversial political figure, but a 17% vote turn out at the presidential voting is not a number to ignore….
