Head of Young Populist Activist Group Violently Attacked on Street in France

Apparently, it’s not only in America where people can be physically assaulted for their non-Left political beliefs.

According to Breitbart, a populist political activist was violently assaulted on the street in France over the weekend.

The incident is the latest evidence of conservative activists and politicians facing increasing threats of attacks from violent, radical leftists.

The young populist activist was reportedly assaulted by a group of leftists when they discovered who he was and what his beliefs were.

In true leftist fashion, they reportedly screamed “fascist” and “Nazi” at him during the unprovoked, violent attack.

The victim was 24-year-old Stanislas Rigault.

Rigault is the president of the youth movement of Éric Zemmour’s Reconquête! (Reconquest) anti-mass migration party.

Rigault noted that he had to file a police report after the attack.

The attack occurred while he was awaiting a taxi “in the 14th arrondissement of the French capital on Friday evening.”

The victim described to a local newspaper what had happened, saying, “They started to push me, to tell us that we had nothing to do there.”

He went on to provide details, including a female attacker who began to shove him during the attack.

“I push her away and at that moment, she spits on me,” Rigault recalled.

Police have still not been able to identify the group of attackers, though an investigation remains ongoing.

Attacks on populist activists and politicians is not a new concept for Europe.

This was just the latest attack on that specific group.

Breitbart noted:

It is not the first time the populist party has faced political violence, with Reconquête! leader and former presidential candidate Éric Zemmour was injured in 2021 during a campaign rally which saw 39 Atifa radicals arrested, some of whom were armed with Molotov cocktails and “bottles of acid”.

Several others with the same political ideology across Europe, and several instances specifically in Germany, have been attacked by Antifa and similar violent leftist groups.

Sadly, these kinds of attacks will only continue to increase, as there isn’t much in the way of consequences for the attackers when they’re caught, or if they’re ever caught.
