Immigrants suspected of deadly assault on bus driver in France

Four "youths" that boarded a bus in Bayonne, France, without tickets and without masks violently attacked a bus driver on Sunday. The driver was left brain dead. Yet another sad story totally ignored by the system media that illustrates the impoverishment of French society as a result of "diversity".

    In France, the scourge of violence continues to spread, leaving in its wake its innocent victims. After the death of a gendarme, then that of young Thomas , the savage assault of a bus driver in Bayonne once again underlines the worrying rise in immigrant delinquency and crime. The latest victim is Philippe Monguillot, 58 years old and father of three, attacked and savagely beaten for having pointed out to immigrant youths that they were violating the law.

    The four thugs that got into Philippe’s bus, were without masks and without tickets. After pointing out the illegality of their situation, one of the young Africans approached the driver and started beating him. Just like Mélanie Lemée, a gendarme killed last week by an African motorist, Philippe was assaulted for wanting to simply enforce the law.

    His wife Veronique confided in French tabloid le Parisien on Monday: “We were destroyed in a few seconds, I have the impression of living a nightmare. A nightmare which is getting worse by the day.” She told the media that her husband’s cranium had been totally deformed due to the extremely violent assault.

    Following this heinous attack, an African in his thirties was arrested on Sunday evening and four other individuals were placed in police custody on Monday. Unsurprisingly, their profile is not that of the average citizen: the first person arrested in the apartment of Mohammed A, is known to the police.

    “These are people who live on the margins of society, who regularly drink alcohol and take drugs,” Olivier Lahet, a deputy departmental police union secretary told LCI. But no race-obsessed media outlet dared to speak the truth about the ethnicity of the attackers – contrary to their feverish reporting over the death of African-American George Floyd.

    Several dozen of the driver’s colleagues marched to the hospital where Philippe lies after being announced brain dead. Jean-Philippe Paulmier, CFDT delegate, contacted by France Bleu Pays Basque, recalled the violence suffered daily by bus drivers: “There are verbal attacks all the time, the atmosphere has been hyper-tense for a few years. Bus drivers have been exposed more and more in recent years, and Philippe’s aggression, marked by violence, is far from being an isolated case.”

    In February 2019, a bus driver was hit in Sartrouville (Yvelines) for refusing to stop immediately. Times are difficult for the drivers whose unions increasingly denounce the incivility and the violence they suffer.

    Drivers of the Chronoplus bus network, colleagues of Philippe Monguillot, say no bus has been running since Monday morning, with the exception of certain subcontracted lines.

    The attack on the driver elicited angry reactions from opposition politicians. “A man, a driver, tried to enforce basic rules and he lost his life, ” Julien Aubert, LR deputy and president of the Oser la France movement, tweeted.

    “When the honest man must lower his eyes in front of thugs, of savages, collapse is not very far away. Living together is an illusion,” Aubert added. His colleague Valérie Boyer, denounced the increase in violence and the lack of media outrage: “Once again, barbarism is spreading. I am scandalized when I learn of the assault of a bus driver in Bayonne. I am scandalized by the cowardice, the savagery which has become daily violence with selective indignation.”

    Céline Pina, former elected Socialist and contributor to the new magazine Front populaire by Michel Onfray, even speaks of the “return of the law of the jungle”. The multiplication of violent attacks committed by immigrants and the domination of immigrant youths in the “no-go zones” of the Republic are now indisputable facts.

    “Not a day without this gratuitous and unleashed violence that hurts and kills. The worrying generalization of the savagery is a fact that that can no longer be only ‘disparate’. They are becoming the norm in a country whose elites have abdicated,” said the manager of Marine Le Pen’s RN, Jean Messiha, who happens to be an Egyptian immigrant himself.

    For his part, the identity activist Damien Rieu wanted to recall that the victims of crime did not enjoy the same compassion from the media, cultural and political class. “Who will kneel for Philippe, a bus driver massacred in Bayonne? Who will set up a committee? A mural fresco? Which star will launch a petition against the country’s impoverishment which kills dozens every day? Omar Sy?” he remarked, in an allusion to the Adama Traore affair.

    Rare African victims of alleged police violence are entitled to all the tributes of the progressive system but those who suffer daily violence are ignored.

    The local mayor of Bayonne was praised by the New York Times for sheltering illegal African migrants crossing the Spanish border into France last year. The newspaper called Jean-René Etchegaray’s city in the French Basque Country, “refined” because it fulfilled its “humanitarian obligation” since Italy all but closed its borders. The mayor has been providing the illegals with cosy beds, hot meals and heating in winter.

    Spain has now become the prime gateway into Europe for migrants from Africa, with more than 57 000 arriving last year.

    “I saw that the frontiers were closing, and as far as I’m concerned, there are some fundamental rights that can’t be trampled on,” Etchegaray truimphantly declared last year. He alluded to the attack on the driver as an isolated act this week. Etchegaray was re-elected recently.
