France: Guy Who Bitch-Slapped Macron is Convicted and Sentenced to Jail Just 2 Days After It Happened

I’ve never heard of someone getting convicted within 2 days of committing a crime, no matter what evidence there is against him.

RT:

A French court has sentenced Damien Tarel, the man who slapped the country’s President Emmanuel Macron, for 18 months, with 14 of them suspended. The man also faced other penalties.

The 28-year-old suspect appeared before court on Thursday. The hearings are heavily fast-tracked, coming only two days after the slapping incident. Tarel stands accused of an assault on a public official, with the offence carrying a maximum of three years in jail and a hefty fine of up to €45,000.


The fearless slapper is a BASED historical cosplayer

The prosecutors, however, have asked the court to slap Tarel with a real 18-month jail term rather than impose a fine on him, as well as to hit him with other penalties.

“I am not asking for a fine, but I am asking you to consider imposing on him a permanent ban on holding public office,” a prosecutor told the court as quoted by BFM TV.

The court was also asked to ban the man from voting for five years, as well as to bar him from owning firearms during the same period.

Earlier in the day, the defendant explained his actions were politically motivated, telling the court that Macron, in his opinion, embodied the “decay” of France, and that the sneaky attack was the only way to get to the president.

“I think that Macron represents very neatly the decay of our country,”
he told the court. “If I had challenged Macron to a duel at sunrise, I doubt he would have responded.”
Is that really an “opinion”?

Or just an objective fact of reality?



Would Macron himself even argue that he isn’t causing the decay of France, or just say that this is good, because it will end racism?

The slapping incident occurred on Tuesday, when Macron was visiting the department of Drome in southeastern France. The president approached a crowd of onlookers in the village of Tain-l’Hermitage, apparently seeking to shake hands with the people – as he came straight up to the suspect.

Tarel was holding Macron by one hand as he slapped him with another one, footage of the incident that immediately went viral shows. The suspect also shouted the royalist slogan “Montjoie Saint Denis” and “Down with Macron-ism” as he slapped the president.
It was a light slap.



It was not an assault, but simply an attempt to humiliate, and to send a message.

One of the problems with democracy is that people have things forced on them against their will by a totally unaccountable government and they have no ability to voice any opposition to what is being forced on them. Never before in all of history has there been a system of government where the population had no options at all for stating disagreement with dictates being forced on them.

No one supports slapping, but you have to ask: in a system that doesn’t allow citizens to petition the government at all, and where the government has carte blanche ability to force the population to do egregious things against their will, how do you expect people to respond?

Of course, the answer is they expect people to just lie there and take it, as that is the values of democracy.

At some point, we are going to ask if a system this oppressive, where the masses of people have no input at all on the way the government functions, is sustainable long-term. At some point, the masses will become fed-up with the lack of freedom and brutal oppression of democracy, and instead of one angry slapper, you will have millions of angry slappers, demanding that they have some say in the way the country is run.

Lol at deluded prosecutors who think forbidding someone from voting is a serious punishment.

I mean, the mad lad is allegedly a BASED monarchist, so he probably does not hold our one-man one-vote system in high regard.
“I am not asking for a fine, but I am asking you to consider imposing on him a permanent ban on holding public office,” a prosecutor told the court as quoted by BFM TV.


So the French government is now openly picking and choosing who is allowed to hold office? Not very democratic.

FYI, the mad lad told the judges during his trial that, yes, he does read illegal websites that ask questions about what happened during WW2 and he wonders why these sites are illegal.

Couldn't find any. Here's an automatic Google translation of an article by Le Monde (the French equivalent of the New York Times) about the trial:

"I saw his completely sympathetic and lying gaze that wanted to make me a potential voter, I was filled with disgust," said Damien Tarel, standing in his box. All the protesters had been excluded in advance by the gendarmerie, which gave rise to a deep feeling of injustice in me. I would have had a hard time going home thinking 'I just shook hands with Emmanuel Macron'. The judge ticks. So couldn't he express his anger differently? Just refuse to say hello to the president? Or just verbally insult him? "My reaction was a little impulsive and violent, but I think the words would have had less impact, he explains, both on Emmanuel Macron and on all the 'yellow vests' and the patriots. "

"Patriot". This is how Damien Tarel defined himself politically in police custody. As he also qualifies the slogan "Monjoie ! St Denis ! Down with Macronie! He yelled before the slap. What about those photos of him found on his phone, shirtless in front of the mirror, half-shaved mustache and hair pulled to the side? “I looked frankly like Hitler. It was just funny, my girlfriend and my friends laughed. "And that copy of Mein Kampf found at his friend Arthur C.'s house, which he gave her himself? “Because he's passionate about World War II. "

Or his research on "illegal" sites that refute the existence of gas chambers? "I just find out about all possible ways and things. "But what does he think of that? "I do not have enough information to say anything, I am not an expert in history",
he blurted out before turning to one of the assessors: "Excuse me, I do not am not sure I understand, are you suggesting that I am a nazi? "

The judge tires, but tries to bring back the dialogue one last time. “Maybe your problem Mr. Tarel is that you see censorship everywhere, and you think everyone is manipulating you. The defendant disagrees. The problem is not him, but "we live in a democracy and the person elected represents himself through the media. Of course she's going to hide the bad things! The president gives up. Damien Tarel too.

"Have we looked around enough to try to understand each other better?

- I think yes. "

“The thought of Mr. Tarel, we put almost everything:“ yellow vests ”, patriotism, identity ideas, medieval arts, reflections a little conspiratorial or revisionist ... We listen with great perplexity to what He tells us. Me, I did not understand much ", summarizes the prosecutor.

Another automatic Google translation from the court hearing, this time from BFM TV (the French discount version of CNN)

Illegal WWII sites: Tarel says he is not "revisionist, I dislike censorship"
"I go to illegal WWII sites that question the gas chambers," Damien Tarel told the court.

"I'm wondering why these sites are banned so I went to check," he continued. "I'm trying to find out as best I can."

"It is for my culture, I am not a revisionist, it is the censorship that I dislike," he added.

Photo evoking Hitler: Damien Tarel answers about the exploitation of his phone
The exploitation of Damien Tarel's phone reveals several photos where the defendant is wearing his hair sideways, wearing a small mustache reminiscent of Hitler.

"Why do you want to look like him?" inquired the president.

"I showed that to my girlfriend and my friends, it made them laugh a lot ... then I shaved," replied Damien Tarel.

"I am close to the right, I call myself a patriot", assumes Damien Tarel
"I am close to the right, I call myself a patriot", claims Damien Tarel. "I like the fight, I don't like the theatrical side," he added.
"The money is used to pay for costumes and replicas of period weapons," he explained.

Nothing was seized at his home during the search, said the president of the court.
