Marine Le Pen Ordered to Undergo Psychiatric Tests Over ISIS Tweets

Published

on

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.
