As the United States Supreme Court increasingly looks to European law (rather than the Constitution) in making it's rulings, it's instructive to note what's actually going on in Europe in order to know what to expect here in the future.

Actress Brigitte Bardot has been convicted in a French court for "inciting racial hatred." Her crime? According to the Reuters report at
In [her] book [A Scream in the Silence], she laments the "Islamization of France" and the "underground and dangerous infiltration of Islam."

"Mme. Bardot presents Muslims as barbaric and cruel invaders, responsible for terrorist acts and eager to dominate the French to the extent of wanting to exterminate them," the court said.

France’s 5-million-member Muslim community is the largest in Europe.
No, no, no! Of course Islam doesn't want to do any of those things. I mean, when's the last time Islam set out to dominate and exterminate a culture through barbaric invasion and terrorist acts? Aside from Afghanistan, Sudan, Indonesia, Lebanon, Nigeria, Libya, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Yemen, Iraq, and a dozen or two other places, I can't think of any.

Shame on you, Brigitte Bardot.

A note to you Americans: If you have something to say about Islam (or any other "protected class"), say it now, because European law is coming your way soon.
