Considering her latest album, MDNA, tanked harder than a 12-year-old at a frat party, it probably shouldn’t come as a surprise that Madonna‘s really pulling out all the tricks on controversy corner. Like Hitler! Yes, she’s burned crosses, but Madonna has finally lost all traces of coyness and dove head first into Godwin’s Law by showing a picture of French right-wing politician Marine Le Pen with a swastika on her forehead. Oh, and she did this during her concenrt in Israel, because I’m sure the Israeli people are really into French politics. Via Huffington Post:

According to the Daily Mail, Le Pen has threatened legal action should Madonna continue with the performance in France. Marine Le Pen is the head of France’s National Front, a far-right political party that has been accused of racism. “We are not a Nazi party, and object to being depicted as such,” a party source reportedly told the Daily Mail.

Granted, we know jackshit about French politics, mostly because we’re from North America and the closest we’ll come to tolerating the French is Celine Dion. But look, if you want to call out a politician for race-baiting, try and avoid playing the Hitler card. Comparing someone to Hitler is practically the same thing as telling the world that you wish you were better at analogies.
