Paris has erupted into a new series of riots in the long protest against Macron’s rise on gas prices. The Daily Caller reports:
Heavily armed French police deployed tear gas and stun grenades against an army of Yellow Vests gathered in central Paris demanding Emmanuel Macron’s head.
Up to 5,000 demonstrators gathered in the center of Paris Saturday morning, where they were met by some 8,000 police officers and at least 12 armored vehicles. More than 500 people have been arrested.
“We are not here to destroy Paris, we are here to tell Macron we are f–king fed up,” said one protester before the clashes with the police began, adding that the people are protesting ever-increasing taxes on the working class.
French police, wearing riot gear, tried to stop and search protesters entering the Champs Elysees, but such efforts were eventually abandoned with the flow of thousands of demonstrators.
However, it is interesting to note that the media is silent as to the “gassing” of civilians in France. Does it only matter when Trump’s agents do it against illegals?
The US needs to prepare for internal conflict of a significant and maybe similar nature. The House will push aggressively for liberal reforms and spending, while the Senate and President Trump will not accommodate those demands. We are going to be in for some severe government shut-downs and maybe the worst appropriations fights ever. This will be a huge mess. The US could have riots like Paris.
Higher taxes on the middle class —– how else can socialist states pay for all those FREE goodies?
The French Revolution. A lesson as yet unlearned. Somewhere in France tonight, there’s a young reincarnation of Joan d’Arc channeling her inner Sarah Palin and saying: Let’s Party Like It’s 1789″! “le Rasoir National” anyone? Anyone?
One does wonder how long the Berkeley, Portland, and San Francisco police would stay if things became genuinely serious. It is one thing to protect the antifa people, and another if there is incoming. We shall probably see in the very near future.
Looks like President “Macaroni” has his own way to speed up Global Warming; i.e., screw the middle class with prejudice. ?
When the French start twittering “No high Taxes to support foreigner’s Give us Trump” That is a message for all Democrats. The political gamer’s and the hanger oners, POL your gong to start riots in the street and get thrown out by your own Banana style voters , hangers the worst thing will happen for you.
You are living in the best country in world, you should be happy you are here, I am not,you already lowered the Quality of Life for many us by our dumbing down America to accommodate your height, education, your language. So work on these and help the country you hate but want to stay in by improving yourself, you don’t need help you need a better attitude which will determine your altitude. Falla ?
