Default The French are Revolting.....

......but they don't stink on ice.

Massive 'Yellow Vest' street protests against Macron, beginning to see instances of police and fire demonstrating solidarity with the people.

https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/wire...d-412-59555684

Firemen turning their backs and walking off:


Gendarmes removing their riot helmets in solidarity with protestors:



Turns out regular people don't like globalism all that much. Who knew?

The Fake News here is saying it's about their new gas tax. Pro tip: They Are Lying. We all know what it is really about.

I've seen this, the argument that it isn't simply all about heavy taxation, but here's my question....if it has to do with the flood of migrants, particularly Muslim migrants flooding France, why haven't the protestors gone to Muslim areas and set shit on fire and protested there?

Why haven't they busted up Muslim shops?

As much as we want this to be about the French retaking their country back from Islamists and other freeloading migrants taxing their system, I haven't seen that.

If the French are suddenly waking up to the problems with Socialism and Progressivism, then why did they just pass on the Conservative candidate Marine LePen and elect Macron?

Because they don't want to get killed, probably.

Then they really don't want to save their country. Busting up a Chanel store or burning police cars aren't really doing anyone any good. Going en masse, in force, to a 'no go' neighborhood and burning shit there, and busting up stuff there would send the correct message.

They are using the onerous global warming taxes to voice their general displeasure. Give it time and they will make a baguette. They are French after all.

It's a slide show, you should see an arrow button on the right side of the pic to flip to the next one. There are 39 pics in this album.

If that isn't working for you, just tap or click on the pic, it will open a new window/tab of the linked album on the imgur site.
