    France's Bardot risks fine, prison over anti-Muslim remarks

    PARIS (AFP) — A Paris prosecutor on Tuesday called for former French actress Brigitte Bardot to pay a 15,000-euro (23,000-dollar) fine and be given a suspended two-month prison sentence, for inciting hatred against Muslims.

    In December 2006, the former sex symbol wrote a letter to France's then interior minister, Nicolas Sarkozy, claiming Muslims should make animals dizzy before sacrificing them at the Aid al-Kabir holiday.

    She outraged French anti-racist groups by saying "I've had enough. These people have been dragging us by our noses, destroying us and our country by imposing their ways".

    I'm no animal-rights whacko, but anything that anybody can say anywhere to expose Islamic double-speak as far as the peaceful face it hopes to wear versus its warlike reality is good in my book.

    Discuss.

    Oh, Hondo will be out of his basement sooner or later. Well, he might be afraid to 'cause all those Muslims are gonna kill him and his family

    The funniest thing is that she wants Muslim groups to "make the animals dizzy" before killing them

    What, blindfold them like "Pin the Tail on the Donkey"?

    I think the accepted method is grabbing them by the tail and spinning them around above your head.

    I'd rather be dead than dizzy.

    If you're asking whether I think hate speech should be punishable by law, the answer is no. If you're asking whether I give a shit that BB has been charged with doing it for a second time, the answer is also no.

    If the French want more freedoms, they need to chop off some more heads, methinks.

    In other news of France, they also would want to make it illegal to incite "extreme thinness."
