The leader of the National Rally, a French political party, has been ordered to undergo psychiatric tests for graphic images of ISIS beheadings that she posted on Twitter in 2015.
“A French court ordered Marine Le Pen to submit to a psychiatric evaluation as part of its investigation into her decision to post images of Islamic State executions on Twitter, the far right leader said on Thursday and denounced the order,” according to a report.
Le Pen is not far right, but rather a right-wing populist concerned with the growing number of radical Islamist “refugees” being re-settled in France, which has led to a huge uptick in terrorism. She posted three images of Islamist beheadings, including the beheading of American journalist James Foley, in 2015. The Tweets were obviously meant as a warning – one that has not been heeded by the French government.
“I thought I had seen it all: but no! For having denounced the horrors of #Daesh in tweets, the ‘justice’ is submitting me to a psychiatric evaluation! How far will they go?” she said on Twitter. “It’s UNBELIEVABLE.”
Daesh is an alternate term for ISIS.
Le Pen said she plans to ignore the court order.
“I’d like to see how the judge would try and force me do it,” she said.
The National Rally has been the subject of numerous government inquiries and investigations, including for “misuse of EU funds,” and has been targeted similarly to how the Tea Party in the United States was targeted by the Internal Revenue Service on purely partisan grounds.
Italian Interior Minister and Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini defended Le Pen.
“A court orders a psychiatric assessment for Marine Le Pen. Words fail me! Solidarity with her and with the French who love freedom!” he said.

Pope Francis Prays For Coronavirus Relief in Unprecedented Empty Vatican Audience
The Pope appeared alone.
Pope Francis prayed that God would comfort Italy and the world in the midst of the raging Chinese coronavirus epidemic, appearing in an unprecedented Vatican audience in Saint Peter’s Square. Papal events at the Vatican are almost always filled with pilgrims and the faithful, but the ceremony overseen by the Pope was entirely empty on account of the strict quarantine imposed on Italy as the nation reels from an unmatched death count from the disease.
Imagery of the event revealed the striking emptiness of the Vatican square, the overcast and rainy weather adding to the solemn nature of the papal event.

“May God’s blessing come down upon you as a consoling embrace,” said the Pope at the event. “Lord, bless the world. Give health to our bodies and comfort our hearts.”
The Pope encouraged prayer from the faithful for those directly involved in the response to the historic health epidemic- healthcare workers, doctors, grocery employees, police and volunteers.
The Pope chose to deliver the traditional ‘Urbi et Orbi’ address at the event, a Vatican tradition that is usually reserved for Christmas and Easter. The prayer implied the likely cancellation of Vatican Easter proceedings, with the devastation caused by the coronavirus in Italy likely precluding any major gatherings within the coming months, at least. Reports indicate that the Pope will celebrate traditional Good Friday and Easter Sunday masses, but alone, in a manner similar to Friday’s papal appearance.
Catholic Sunday Masses have been entirely cancelled in Italy, a nearly entirely unprecedented development that speaks to the gravity of the situation in the disease-stricken country. The nation had its worst day in terms of casualties on Friday, with deaths rising to 9,134, with a total national count of almost 87,000.
