The person who filmed the scene is now being accused of making “racist” comments on the video, but not one of his remarks point to race. Ironically, his comments are related to criminality instead.
The individual who filmed a group of Yellow Vests in Flixecourt in the Somme, giving the gendarmes six migrants found in the tank of a truck, will appear in court on March 1 for public racial insults, according to the JDD , which reported the information on February 3.
On the video of the scene, broadcast on social networks on November 20, various comments attributed to the author of the video are heard, such as “what a gang of fuckers,” “you’re smiling fucker” and “all this will still be from our taxes”.
On November 22, an investigation for “public insult of a racist nature” was entrusted to investigators of the gendarmerie of Amiens. According to LCI , this “racial” offense is punishable by one year’s imprisonment.
On the images, there is a group of demonstrators, who had organised a roadblock, approaching a tanker truck. “Guys, there are migrants in the tanks!”
Six migrants were then dislodged and handed over to the gendarmerie, before being transported to the station. According to LCI, “among the six hidden men, two were under an obligation to leave French territory (OQTF) and were immediately released by the gendarmes. The others were notified of the OQTF before being released “.
Not only are Yellow Vests suddenly called “racist” for handing over migrant fugitives, but an elected official of President Macron’s LREM party, Adrien Morenas has accused the Scout organisation of constituting a “melting pot of identity formation”.
Morenas is a member of the committee of inquiry combatting alleged “right-wing extremist groups”. The Catholic newspaper La Vie, reported that the Macronist parliamentarian, elected in Vaucluse, called the Scouts unitaires de France (SUF) a “far-right movement”.
The SUF has 29 000 members, and are among the ten Scout associations approved by the State. Born in 1971 from a split with the Scouts of France, the association is required to declare all its camps to the State for potential inspection.
“We have excellent relations with our ministry of guardianship, youth and sports, now attached to the Ministry of Education,” said Pierre du Couëdic, Commissioner General of SUF, He said he was “very surprised” by the “mistake” made by Morenas. “I think there is a lack of awareness of scouting,” he added.
