FRANCE: FORMER NATIONAL FRONT MEMBER SENTENCED TO JAIL FOR POSTING “RACIST” IMAGE OF CHIMPANZEE


Clearly these people have no sense of humor. The image is actually pretty funny because the resemblance between the baby chimpanzee and the Justice Minister is uncanny. The former National Front chick who posted it Anne-Sophie Leclere is actually a good looking French woman and it is good to see her stand up for the French people with some humor. One should be asking why France has a Black Justice Minister any way. This is France right?

From BBC:
A former local election candidate for France’s far-right National Front (FN) party has been jailed for inciting racial hatred.
Anne-Sophie Leclere will serve nine months in jail for posting an image showing black justice minister Christiane Taubira beside a chimpanzee.
The party said that the jail sentence was “grotesque”.
Leclere was an FN candidate for the 2014 local elections in Ardennes before being dropped by the party.
In a session on Tuesday, the French court in Cayenne – capital of the overseas region of French Guiana in South America – also ordered Leclere to pay a 50,000-euro ($67,800; £40,000) fine for posting the image.
The case caused a storm in France a year ago when Leclere posted the image on her Facebook page whilst running for local elections in the northeastern Ardennes region.
