French Mayor Forced Into Mental Institution For ‘Islamophobic’ Comments?

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.

A translated version of an AFP story states that Chardon was “forcibly hospitalized” as a result of “incoherent statements” made on Twitter.

Press reports about Chardon’s comments in English-language media contained no details of Chardon being detained in a psychiatric ward.

Local officials subsequently denied the AFP report and claimed that Chardon had been hospitalized for cancer treatment, although the mayor had been undergoing such treatment for months.

The AFP story said that Chardon had been committed to the mental institution “by someone close to him for reasons of incoherent statements.”

Selwyn Duke sums up the chilling prospect of Chardon being forcibly detained over his political beliefs.

“One tactic Soviet-bloc countries would use to stifle dissidents was involuntary confinement to mental institutions. After all, you have to be crazy to oppose state ideology, right? Now, though, 26 years after the Berlin Wall’s fall comes a similar shocking story — from well west of where the wall stood.”

While those who disparage or merely criticize the religion of Islam are finding themselves under increasing scrutiny in Europe, some countries are extending political correctness to the point of directly aiding ISIS jihadists.

At least 32 Danish citizens who are fighting alongside Islamic State terrorists in Syria have received welfare unemployment benefits of around 378,000 kroner (US$57,000) each.

Meanwhile, in Sweden, some politicians are calling for ISIS terrorists to be reintegrated into society and given jobs – at taxpayer expense – upon their return from Iraq and Syria.
