France is seeing some of the worst civil violence in recent years. The Blaze reports:
Paris police said 412 people were arrested and at least 133 were injured and as protesters ripped through city streets in the capital over the weekend in what is being called the one of the “worst disturbances the capital has seen since 1968,” according to Reuters news.
The protesters, upset with increasing taxes and the high cost of living, rioted Saturday in one of the city’s most popular tourist areas, according to published reports. Activists torched cars, banks and houses; smashed windows, looted stores, threw rocks at police and tagged the Arc de Triomphe with multi-colored graffiti. A website for the monument stated Sunday that it is “closed until further notice.”
Police used with tear gas and a water cannon to disperse protesters and closed down “dozens of streets and Metro stations to contain the riot,” the Associated Press reported.
On Sunday morning, city employees began cleaning up the damages, including graffiti on the Arc de Triomphe, the Associated Press reported. Nearby streets were filled with debris and burned cars.
Globalist elites best remember that tax hikes are often the catalyst for civil disturbance, be it in Boston in the 1770s or Paris itself in 1789.
No, the Tax comment was thrown in as a false flag: honest conservative people just don’t do that sort of destructive shit. It’s all the loony lib’s who want free stuff, price controls, and someone else to pay for it.
Socialism is visibly self-destructing in front of your eyes because – to steal a line from the Enviro-Nazi’s, it’s unsustainable. The only way socialism/communism can function is if the country it’s been inflicted upon has abundant easily exploitable natural resources that the rest of the world wants or needs. Even then it falls apart rapidly, unless you literally physically lobotomize the general populace.
Perhaps the protestors should bring back “Madame Guillotine” to impress the authorities?
