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.
Italian Populist Youth Group Praises Trump for His Peace Efforts
The Lega Nord is one of Europe’s strongest populist parties.
The Lega Giovani, the youth branch of Salvini’s Lega party, announced its support in nominating President Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Due to Trump’s efforts in brokering peace deals between Gulf Arab states and Israel, one Norwegian lawmaker Christian Tybring-Gjedde nominated the president for the Nobel Peace prize.
In a statement, Luca Toccalini, a member of the Italian Parliament and Chairman of Lega Giovani, declared that the “globalist left is losing its mind, scared by the outcome of the upcoming American elections, and this latest news decisively increased their worries.”
Toccalini added that Lega Giovani “strongly” supports the “nomination of President Donald Trump, a just reward for the continued dedication of his administration for lasting peace with a bilateral and multi polar approach.”
The populist Italian member of Parliament noted how Trump’s Middle East agenda has contrasted with Obama’s:
After a decade of turmoil in the Middle East and North Africa, sponsored by a globalist agenda and President Obama’s dreams of revolution, the last 4 years have seen great improvement for the stability in our neighbourhood which has also helped Europe.
Wishing four more years of peace and greatness, as Lega Giavani we strongly support Donald J. Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Matteo Salvini and Lega have led the way in putting populism on the map throughout Europe. Salvini broke the mold by implementing pro-gun reforms in 2018 and 2019. What seems like a concept that is only confined to the U.S., now the right to bear arms is starting to enter the conversation in Europe. Political organizations like Lega have undoubtedly changed political discourse in Italian politics and Europe, for that matter.
Youth organizations such as Lega Giovani will play a substantial role in spreading Lega’s message and educating younger generations of Italians and preparing them to be the new populist vanguard of an ever-changing European polity.
