Brigitte Bardot runs afoul of French hate speech laws
ChuckB writes "Film actress and animal rights activist Brigitte Bardot is being tried in France for inciting racial hatred. The Courier-Mail of Queensland reports that Bardot, in her book Un cri dans le silence, writes that she opposes the Islamisization of France and racial mixing. The story also notes that
Bardot has previous convictions for inciting racial violence after she criticised in print the Muslim practice of slaughtering sheep.
Bardot is likely to be fined rather than imprisoned if found guilty."
