A Muslim blogger in France has come under fire after it was discovered he wrote tweets under a pseudonym condoning anti-semitism, rape and murder
An influential French blogger has come in for heavy criticism after thousands of antisemitic, threatening and homophobic tweets he published under a pseudonym resurfaced over the weekend, sparking fierce debate.
The tweets included threats against Front National leader Marine Le Pen, who he threatened to kill, but their author Medhi Meklat, 24, and his supporters have shrugged them off as a joke.
“I am going to slit your throat Muslim style” read the tweet threatening Le Pen. Another called for “Hitler to kill all the Jews”, while a third said he wanted to “rape” former Charlie Hebdo editor-in-chief Charb, one of the victims of the January 2015 terror attacks, with a “Laguiole knife”.
The tweets were published under the pseudonym ‘Marcelin Deschamps’, described by Meklat as a “shameful”, “fictional character” whose thoughts were “quite the opposite” of his own.”
Not everyone's convinced he was merely joking, nor should they be. If anything, he's committed a most abominable crime by making threats against people over their politics, and their race. No sane person should have anything to do with him, and he should be prosecuted for inciting violence. As the article notes, the site he's working for is funded by George Soros, proving he has no morale.
