Man who slapped Macron tells court the president embodied France's decay - BFM TV

The medieval martial arts enthusiast who slapped President Emmanuel Macron across the face told a court he was a right-wing sympathiser who had acted because the president represented all that was rotten with France, BFM TV reported.

Damien Tarel, 28, told the court in Valence that several days ahead of Macron's visit to the southeastern Drome region, he had thought about throwing an egg or a cream tart at the president, the news channel reported.

"I think that Macron represents very neatly the decay of our country," he told the court according to BFM TV. "If I had challenged Macron to a duel at sunrise, I doubt he would have responded."

Macron later described the attack as an isolated incident and said violence and hate were a threat to democracy.

Tarel faced a charge of assault against a public official, an offence which carries a maximum sentence of three years in jail and a 45,000 euro fine.

He struck Macron on Tuesday after the president came over to greet a small crowd of onlookers after visiting a professional training college during a trip to take the country's pulse as it emerges from the pandemic and ahead of presidential elections in 2022.

Macron reached out Tarel who was standing behind a security barrier, Tarel then shouted "Down with Macronia" ("A Bas La Macronie"wink and slapped Macron on the left side of his face. read more

He could also be heard shouting "Montjoie Saint Denis", the army's battle cry when France was still a monarchy.

"It's a patriot's slogan," he was quoted as telling the court.

The unemployed 28-year-old told police investigators that he had been close to the anti-government "yellow vest" protest movement which shook the Macron presidency, and held ultra-right wing political beliefs.

Acquaintances of Tarel described a man who loved period role-play and was not a trouble-maker read more . The prosecutor said he was not a member of any political or militant group.

Tarel was arrested along with a second man from his hometown of Saint-Vallier.

Police found weapons, a copy of Adolf Hitler's autobiographical manifesto Mein Kampf and a red flag with golden sickle and mortar that is the international symbol of the communist movement in the second man's home, local prosecutor Alex Perrin said.

The second man will not face any charges related to the slapping but will be prosecuted for illegal possession of arms in 2022.

If this had happened in Nigeria, there would not be any trial. In fact, journalists and bloggers wouldn't be allowed to record anything or even come close. The guy would simply disappear and nobody would know anything about him.

Buhari is a terrorist.

Far right sympathisers are semi mad people, is either you accept their wish or they scatter everything's. They are rising very fast in Europe, Trump gave them an opportunity to fly again.

And he embodies Hitler's decay after reading Adolf Hitler's books and manifesto.
Little wonder he is jobless.
Dear Nigerian youths, here again let me remind you about what the President said this morning about your character, no where in the world will anyone hire an anarchist, arsonists and psychopath who insults, bully and threaten to kill others online. This guy is a proof of that fact- at 28 ,he is jobless yet spends his time reading Adolf Hitler books.
This young man of 28 years will end his life miserably like that man that killed JFK. At 28 years, he has gone too soon in disgrace as it will later sink in. He must have been slapping his father and mother and just graduated to slapping the father of the nation of France.visit www.freestuffsng.com to hunt free stuff. God bless Nigeria my fatherland.
