'Slit your throat' Blogger who threatened to KILL Marine Le Pen under fire

AN ACCLAIMED French blogger has come under heavy criticism after thousands of racist, homophobic and hate-filled tweets he published years ago under a pseudonym resurfaced at the end of last week, triggering a storm of outrage.


For years, Mehdi Meklat, a 24-year-old human rights activist and former Bondy Blog journalist – who, until last week, was hailed as one of  rising media stars – published “sickening” tweets under the pseudonym ‘Marcelin Deschamps’, a “provocative” but “fictional” character who, according to the young writer, “does not reflect his personal beliefs, values and morals”.
On Twitter, Mr Meklat – writing as Marcelin Deschamps – threatened to kill .
He wrote: “I am going to slit your throat Muslim-style.”
The journalist is also guilty of apologising terrorism and anti-Semitism: hiding behind his ‘fictional’ character, he praised Islamic terrorist Mohammed Merah, said that he “really missed Osama bin Laden” and that we should “bring back Hitler”.
He also said that he wanted to “rape” former Charlie Hebdo editor-in-chief, Charb – one of the victims of the January 2015 terrorist attacks – with a “Laguiole knife”.
