When it comes to self-deluded celebrity stupidity, the biggest names in show biz never disappoint. Especially those that preen and strut and fashion themselves as brave ballsy provocateurs. Sean Penn, Michael Moore, Danny Glover, et al. They are always on the side with fascists, totalitarians, and statists.
Add Madonna to their swollen ranks. She showed what an idiot she really is by depicting Marine Le Pen with a swastika on her forehead, and while I have no use for Le Pen's father, I have seen and heard nothing from Ms. Le Pen that would warrant that libel and smear. Marine Le Pen is rightly concerned with islamizaton of France and its ill effects on that decaying nation.
Why don't any of these so called "brave" provocateurs ever tackle the most extreme and radical idelogy on the face of the earth? Where is Madonna on honor killings, FGM, bloth coffins (burka), Islamic Jew-hatred etc. or Lady GaGa's cancellation of her show in the largest Muslim nation in the world, "moderate" Indonesia?
Perhaps this is the influence of Madonna's latest boytoy, Brahim Zaibat. Maybe he'll give her a taste of the misogynistic culture she so pathetically defends.

Madonna was today threatened with legal action and accused of being an ageing self-publicist after she depicted the head of one of France’s biggest political parties as a Nazi.
An image of National Front leader Marine Le Pen with a swastika on her forehead appeared on a giant screen at the singer's concert in Tel Aviv, Israel on Thursday.
The furious politician has threatened to sue Madonna if she repeats the stunt when her tour reaches France in July.

Ms Le Pen said: 'We understand how old singers who need to get people talking about them go to such extremes.’
Asked if she was likely to sue, Ms Le Pen, 43, said: ‘If she does that in France, we’ll be waiting’.
Madonna, who will turn 54 in August, is due in France next month, when she will appear at the Stade de France in Paris and then in Nice on the Riviera. Other sources in the National Front, which has frequently been linked with anti-Semitism and racism, said Madonna had offended all of its members.
We are not a Nazi party, and object to being depicted as such,’ said a source in the party, which won a fifth of the popular vote during the first round of presidential elections in April.

‘If you accuse the National Front of being anti-Semitic and racist then you accuse a fifth of the French people of being anti-Semitic and racist.
'If Madonna repeats this slur in France then she will certainly be taken to court.’
Wallerand de Saint-Just, the National Front’s lawyer, confirmed he was looking into the possibility of legal action.
Marine Le Pen pledged to reform the party after taking over the leadership from her notorious father, Jean-Marie Le Pen last year. He is a convicted racist and anti-Semite who has in the past denied that the Nazi Holocaust actually took place during World War II.Despite this, he came runner-up in the French presidential election in 2002, proving that he had widespread support.
Ms Le Pen has toned down the party’s extremist views, but regularly pledges to limit Muslim immigration, and to clamp down on Islamic culture in France.
Madonna’s depiction of Ms Le Pen appeared as she performed her song ‘Nobody Knows Me’ in Tel Aviv last Thursday.
The international superstar is well known for her provocative acts, and is currently dating a Frenchman called Brahim Zaibat who has a North African Muslim immigrant background.
Ms Le Pen won just under 18 per cent of votes in the presidential election and is currently standing to become an MP in France’s National Assembly
