Brigitte Bardot Has Been Prosecuted Five Times In Ten Years For Inciting Racial Hatred

Brigitte Bardot is threatening to follow Gérard Depardieu’s example and apply for a Russian passport

Brigitte Bardot was unique in her day when she first graced the beaches of Cannes during the Cannes Film Festival in 1953.

According to Columbia film professor Edward Baron Turk, the young French girl was the center of attention back then after she “flaunted spontaneity and informality via her girlish barefoot gait, long, loose hair and unfussy, mostly skimpy attire. She invented a new image of the French starlet: anti-snobbish and non-intimidating.”

A lot has happened since those carefree days of 1953 when Brigitte Bardot established herself as an icon. For example, did you know that Bardot has been arrested and prosecuted for inciting racial hatred five times in just ten years? That’s according to who reported on the story back in April.

Now aged 79, Brigitte Bardot complained a few years ago to the President of France, Nicholas Sarcozy, about the way Muslims slaughtered sheep during the Eid-al-Adha festival.

Bardot herself once donated nearly $150,000 to assist with the sterilization of stray dogs in Bucharest and has been a renowned animal rights activist for many years. She took issue with the way Muslim’s slit sheeps’ throats saying it was cruel and barbaric as part of a larger rant she was having at the time.

Back then, Brigitte Bardot also said she was tired of being “under the thumb of the population which is destroying us, destroying our country, and imposing its habits,” referring to the Muslim population in France.

On top of her numerous racist comments, Bardot also published a book condemning and attacking the gay community, immigrants and the unemployed in France, but lamented most about what she sees as the “Islamisation” of France.

The last thing many people expected from the starlet back in 1953, who amazed the world with her beauty, was that she could one day be convicted of inciting racial hatred, and receive a two month prison sentence.

Even though the sentence was suspended, Brigitte Bardot was fined around $40,000 by the court, and was very lucky not to have to serve any time behind bars.

Clarification: Some of the comments at the foot of this article have suggested that the claims against Brigitte Bardot are unfounded or untrue.

This information was collated from a number of bone fide sources. One of which is Wikipedia, which writes:

After her retirement, Bardot established herself as an animal rights activist. During the 1990s, she generated controversy by criticizing immigration and Islam in France, and has been fined five times for inciting racial hatred.

Another source was an article written by Michèle Finck on which outlines more specific details relating to Bardot’s previous convictions. You can read that article here.

Here is an excerpt from the article:

In 1997, first offence, using a newspaper column to complain of the ‘foreign overpopulation’ of France. In 2000, she was convicted for having written in her book Pluto’s Square that ‘my country, France, my homeland, my land is again invaded by an overpopulation of foreigners, especially Muslims.’ In 2004, she was found guilty for having published another book, A Cry in the Silence, in which she established a generalised link between Islam and the terrorist attacks that took place on 11 September 2001.

    Despite the fact that Bardot herself donated nearly $150,000 to assist with the sterilization of stray dogs in Bucharest she believed that the way Muslim’s slit sheep’s throats was cruel and barbaric.

    despite the fact? hmmmmmm. in what way does the humane gesture of supporting sterilization of stray dogs disqualify one from commenting on barbaric slaughter habits of muslims? the only racism evident in this article is from the author who evidently detests white people.

  2. Michael Rodgers

    Telling the truth will get you persecuted every time…

  3. Yvette V. Fong

    She's entitled to her opinion, the same as everyone else. I don't see her behavior as "inciting" hatred. People are allowed to have opposing opinions without having them labeled "inciting." I don't live in France, so I can not comment on the validity of her claims. But there are communities of people who live here on Earth, who are quite barbaric!!! My only real objection with Ms. Bardot is that she didn't speak out against the treatment of women by some of the Arab-Muslim communities.

    France has a serious problem with the Muslim community. It also has a serious problem when people get prosecuted for mentioning it . . . America is heading in the same direction. You can't state the obvious if it's not politically correct. Unless Bardot was much less civil in her wording, she has a right to her opinion.

  9. Dave Dornbush

    Exactly what I was thinking. Sterilization of stray dogs is humane. The slaughter of sheep in the manner in which it is done is not the same thing. Regardless, she sounds like the Poster Girl for FOX News. I'm sure they will have her soon now.

    How dare Ms Bardot speak out against muslims, next she'll be complaining about the muslim group that kidnapped about 300 girls in Nigeria, that will undoubtedly warrant prison time !!

  16. Rick Atkinson

    why do muslim men wear robes?…………………………..because a muslim goat can hear a zipper at 100 yards

  17. Katherine Sloan

    Screw the reporter and the Muslims. Slitting the throat and killing of any animal IS barbaric. Idiots! Thank goodness Ms. Bardot cares enough to have said something. She also was wonderfully kind to donate money for a spay/neuter program! I would love to be able to do that. That is a humane thing to do! I am impressed with her! Go team Bardot!

  18. Nabil J Abdul-Nour

    The practice of slaughtering animals for food has been ongoing for centuries. Muslims are no different in this respect than most of the inhabitants of this planet. I see no reason why she is picking on them

    I not sure she is specifically racist. The anti-gay stuff may be a product of the time in which she was raised in. My mom is 85 and she doesn't believe in gay marriage but believes in civil union. My husband was raised Mulslim in country which is mostly muslim and he has voiced his concerns about howt radicals are allowed freedoms in the u.s. and Europe( including shria(sp? laws). Some mosques are under the table funded by conservative middle eastern countries, mostly our allies.

  23. Gary Mahon

    Bravo Brigitte! She has the courage to teell the truth. Thuth, these days is thrown down the gutter, almost no where to be found! Wow to those who brand this as racism! Woe to those who call good evil, and evil good! Political correctness is suicide of the west, and mking lies the truth. I applaud her!

    Despite the fact that the" Inquisitr" had a blind illiterate monkey write this story it still got published. Despite the fact that Bardot herself donated nearly $150,000 to assist with the sterilization of stray dogs (<<<<which would be the RIGHT thing to do. )in Bucharest she believed that the way Muslim’s slit sheep’s throats was cruel and barbaric. (Of COURSE she feels that way, she is a vegetarian and a member of Peta duh!) I have heard of her dislike of muslims but the now haten on the gays that is a new thing. Are you sure that she hates gays? Or are you just trying to be a drama queen? That doesn't seem like something she would be into.

    Whoever wote this gabage article doesn't even know that if Bardot was 18 in 1953, that would make her 79 years old TODAY, NOT 73 as the article states. In short, there goes the media getting shit wrong to fit their progressive marxist slime agenda again.

  31. Sean Murphy

    If she was 18 in 1953, then that means she was born in 1934 or 1935. (One source says her birthday is Sept 1934.) The article says she's now 73. Anyone can figure out the discrepancy there. If they can't bother to get that correct, how many others discrepancies does this story have?

  32. Gene Stansbury

    Michael Woltcheck –a gov a-hole knocks on my door—he dies!

  33. Joseph Poley

    The author of this needs remedial math, especially since they got her age right in the first paragraph. Brigitte will be 79 on September 28, so she can not be "aged 73" as in the fourth paragraph.

    Dave Dornbush,

    I agree. I don't find some of her comments or beliefs to be "racist." Sacrificing animals is something many people are opposed to. That has nothing to do with why people are engaging in the practice.

    The real question is, did Bardot say anything that wasn't true? If she did, the article didn't mention it.

  37. Battie Chase

    She was 18 in 1953, yet he states now she is 73. I think the author also needs to go back to school and learn simple math. She sounds like a hero to me.

  38. Alan Katz

    If she was 18 in '53 she is 18 today. That she thinks the way Muslims are slaughtering sheep, is cruel, is not racist. To spend money to spay and neuter is not considered cruelty. Even noting the press of population and it effects on French culture, is not racist. The article is, however, a vicious, ad hominem attack on Bardot. The author is lucky that he has a forum for his slander. We are not so lucky.

  39. Phil Andrews

    In the examples given in this article, not one thing attributed to her was racist. "Gay" is not a race. "Muslim" is not a race.

  40. Dale Pate

    Send all Muslims to North Korea, China and Russia then they would really have something to complain about.

    I wonder how many Muslims have been prosecuted for inciting hatred in France.

  42. Marty Cuervo

    It's about time someone said what they feel about all this we have ben silenced too long and forced to pretend we like all now it's time for them to let us express too.

  43. Sandy Messer

    Off topic – sort of – but if she was 18 in 1953, that means she was born in 1935 and would be celebrating her 79th birthday soon or has just recently. The article stated that she is 73. Either someone doesn't know how do basic math or this article was written several years ago.

    As an FYI, NOT trying to discuss anything about Ms Bardot; just about the some of "stats" within the article.

  44. Anonymous

    Who wrote this tripe? Nothing that BB has said or done can be construed as racist or cruel, and to make comparisons between animal sacrifice and sterilizing stray dogs is beyond ridiculous.

  45. Brian Ong

    Is racism or cultural indifference? The Muslim habits are very different than that of the French. She has the right to protest the slaughter of sheep just like Americans are protesting Brunei's imposing of Sharia law (re: protests at Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles).

  46. Carolyn Miller

    This article is either very old or completely inaccurate. Ms. Bardot is not 73….she is almost 80.

    It seems that the inquisitor is also calling her a racist, Only the far left morons would call someone telling the truth a racist. She is correct in the FACT that muslim PIGS are trying to take over countries, and institute their cult beliefs on those countries by using the countries own laws against them, they also will cry racism at the drop of a hat and then when they tae over, they give NO credence to your beliefs and rights. ANY ONE that supports the muslim PIG LICKERS should be sent to live in a muslim country for 6 mos. and see how they like it.

    oh by the way France also supports Islam that sees women a less that men. Why would you support a religions that treats women as second class citizens. Why..Why unless you have an ulterior motive and what is that? i think it is taxes. The more people the more taxes the state collects. France is in it for the money. A socialist state will do anything for cash to feed their addiction.

    Why don't you men speak out; you men that are not Muslim are just as cruel to women. I should know. It is good that there is someone looking out for the animals since they do not have a voice etc. I also love animals.

    Spaying and neutering most dogs is the responsible thing to do. What happens to unwanted pups isn't pretty. Islam is a religion, rather than a race. I'm not keen on slaughtering animals for rituals, no matter who does the slaughtering.

    It would be awesome if she could donate only 50 % of the money to Oklahoma for the sterilization of stray dogs and cats, or even those that have owners which cannot afford the high cost to veterinarians. Instead of slicing the animals throats, we shoot dogs and cats, euthanize them, club them to death and worse. The writer of this article must be a Muslim.

    What a complete crock of BS ! I applaud Bardot for not only being a sexually liberated woman in the time of ridiculous prudish western society but for calling a spade a spade . The muslim population in western europe is nothing short of an invasion hiding behind religious ideals . The muslims come in and gradually become a majority then start riots and then they take control its a phony religion, like all of them , used to control the population .

    It is interesting how a French citizen is being called a racist when she voiced opinions about immigrations and radicals in France. Lest we judge too hastily I remember the dark years after September 11. My husband is from Iraq and came to the United States in 1982. There are home grown racial slurs I never knew about before-camel jockey, sand N….right in America.. After the war started FBI agents came to our house and interviewed my husband 2x about weapons of mass destruction and other questions. I am sure that even the agents thought this was ridiculous The stuff I could tell you about what happened to our family and our Arabic community would shock most Americans. Some women stopped wearing head scarfs and s female students left the University in fear. I still get the double check at the airport(in subtle ways) due to my arabic last name.I am glad we have come out of those dark days but we have to be careful not to throw stones at other faiths or nationalities otherwise we become what we hate,

  81. Steve Xerakis

    God Bless this women for sticking up for White French people , who are the natives of the country….no racism whatsoever , how about the muslims respect and understand that they are in a better place and show some gratitude to the people who allowed them in.

    How many times can one say she is RIGHT. And in 1953 there was no terrorist cells in training (the Islams in other words) in the beautiful countrysides of France. It works both ways. The castrated media (all mainstream media) is forced to follow suit with "The Agenda". Bardot didn't get a memo on that and doesn't give a s*it. Good for her.

Also, I think most of us are very concerned about the trend that is happening in society today (ours & others). I am very concerned about the gagging of the U.S. majority as well as other issues. I have been a die hard liberal all my life, but I think things may have gone too far. It would be a great thing if we could come together as a group in an attempt to shift things back more towards the middle. What do you think?
