For John, BLUF: Newspaperman Emile Zola would understand. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From the BBC we have this item—"France: Marine Le Pen goes on trial over Muslim remarks".
The point of this is that before you applaud the French Government for going after someone you think of as a bigot, remember that Freedom of Speech is best defined by how the obnoxious in society are treated. Be glad you live in the United States. We have lots of obnoxious people, saying obnoxious things.
Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
