Earlier this month, the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe invited me to Warsaw, Poland to address diplomats from 57 countries on a number of vital issues.
Here, I testified about the war on one of our most basic human rights, the right to freedom of speech, going on across the continent:
Even as we sit here, Marine Le Pen has been ordered by a judge in France to undergo psychiatric testing for tweets criticising ISIS to see if her mental health could be a risk to the public.
They want to label her as a mad woman for criticising Islamic terrorists. She could face three years in jail, for highlighting the cruelty and terrorism of ISIS.
The French state is tolerant of terrorists. But not their critics. What madness is this?
We are headed to a very dark place indeed.
