Robert Chardon reportedly committed to psychiatric ward after Twitter outburst.
If this story turns out to be accurate, it appears as though the spirit of “Je Suis Charlie” is very much dead in France.
A French Mayor was reportedly committed to a mental institution against his will after he posted ‘Islamophobic’ comments on Twitter.
The story began when Robert Chardon, mayor of the southern French town of Venelles, became embroiled in a Twitter debate with former French president Nicolas Sarkozy.
Chardon insisted that France “ban the Muslim faith in France” and instead “promote the practice of the Christian faith.”
While Chardon’s remarks may be seen as bigoted and offensive to many, what reportedly happened next was infinitely more shocking.
Laat het niet waar zijn. Voorlopig nog maar één bron gezien, dus een slag om de arm. Maar dat het de richting is die we al een tijdje uitgaan staat wel vast.
