A member of Marine Le Pen’s National Rally (RN) and former candidate in the French parliamentary elections, was attacked over the weekend and viciously beaten by a group of far-left Antifa extremists.

The attack took place in the city of Bordeaux in western France on Friday night into early Saturday morning and saw former legislative candidate Pierre Le Camus and his brother attacked by a group of around thirty to forty Antifa militants in the centre of the city, it is claimed.

At around 1 am, Mr Le Camus, 22, was sitting on the terrace of a local cafe along with his brother and a group of friends and claimed that initially, only two people approached him.

“I was standing drinking a beer with my brother and a friend while the rest of our group was seated. Two people approached and began to have a threatening attitude towards us, saying ‘you don’t know who we are but we know very well who you are’,” Le Camus told the newspaper, Le Figaro.

Almost immediately after, a larger group of Antifa militants attacked Le Camus, his brother and his friend, all while wearing masks and hoods.

” It was very violent. There was a real will to hurt. They turned the terrace upside down, chairs were thrown away, and I was even hit on the head with a glass bottle. My brother ended up on the ground and they kept beating him,” Le Camus said.  “They left as fast as they arrived shouting ‘Bordeaux Antifa’, ‘Bordeaux is ours.’,” He added.

Both Camus and his brother suffered various injuries as a result of the attack, with Camus suffering a ruptured nasal septum, hematomas, and skull pain, while his brother suffered a broken nose, a broken tooth and a bone injury on his right hand, the paper reported.

The incident echoes the attack on German MP Frank Magnitz in 2019, who was viciously attacked and beaten in the city of Bremen in what some labelled at the time as an assassination attempt.

Days later far-left extremists allegedly took credit for the attack on the far-left extremist web platform IndyMedia.
