France Is Burning! Thousands Riot as 89,000 Police Arrest Hundreds

“Every month, at the end of the month, we say, ‘will there be enough to eat?”’

What began as a mostly grassroots protest of the enraged working class is now far more than that. The barbarians have stormed the gate and taken the common man with them.

Before we jump in with support, let’s remember how the first French Revolution went. It was nothing like ours despite what those who rewrite history like to say.

The days of guillotines are long gone but four have died and many have been injured as men 30 to 40 years of age march from their rural homes to storm Paris, burn some cars, vandalize the Arc de Triomphe with anti-government graffiti, and poke at and defile monuments while wearing Yellow Vests, Gilets Juanes in French.

89,000 POLICE ON THE STREETS

It’s not only in Paris, but it’s also all over France for those who can’t make the trip.

Across France, 89,000 police officers are on duty and armored vehicles are being deployed in the capital, Prime Minister Edouard Philippe announced.

President Emanuel Macron has for now canceled the gas tax to placate the desperate mild-mannered agrarians, hoping to separate them from the feisty barbarians who are ruthlessly exploiting the misery of some for their cause. Macron might be disappointed since the movement has won widespread public approval.

Macron hoped only the smashing-everything nihilists would show up this weekend, allowing police to put the anarchists down. That doesn’t seem to be the case.

The armored tanks he’s sending to the streets present as bad optics but he has little choice.

Yellow vests were hung from windows this week, a CGT union called a 48-hour strike of union workers two days ago, and the French police labor union has called for an indefinite strike in solidarity. That gave a clear indication of what was to come.

Macron, Obama’s choice, isn’t and will never be their savior after all. Why he thought people so heavily taxed needed another tax is a mystery.

THE RIOTS BEGIN FOR THE FOURTH STRAIGHT WEEK

It’s not tied to a political party yet, but it leans left, extreme left. It began because the French can’t pay their bills.

Currently, this Saturday, at 2 p.m. Paris time, over 30,000 are protesting and rioting while more than 700 have been arrested. The good news is it’s not the 100,000 who said ‘maybe’ they’d come to join the protests.

COLLECTIVE ARRESTS

Today, the collective arrests of students are now being used to keep public support at the expense of the police. Students are raising a commie fist — make note of that.

IT COULD GROW AND IT’S DANGEROUS

Right and left extremists support the movement but haven’t taken a role in the leadership. The movement first centered on fuel taxes but leftists have moved in with a push for social justice. The French are not opposed to State intervention in the economy as Libertarians might hope, they simply want it to be more even-handed, The far-left magazine, The Nation declares.

The rich are getting richer and the number of poor is growing.

The right isn’t static in this and is claiming it’s time to rid themselves of climate change taxes. The people really don’t want to send their money to Third World nations in the name of climate change. Such a notion is considered extreme right.

The French are mostly people of the left but now the loons — leftist loons primarily — are moving in and exploiting the misery of those with very real complaints.

The yellow vests issued 42 confusing and contradicting demands that only serve to create more chaos. The people have lost all hope in Emanuel Macron and labeled him ‘the establishment’.

Let this serve as a cautionary tale. George Soros can turn out a lot more than 30,000 rioters.

Macron would be hiding in the Chinese embassy if the French people had not been disarmed years ago. Commiecrats take heed of what will happen to you if the American people decide enough is enough!

The difference between France’s protesters and the American working class is (1) we are not communists and (2) we are well armed. And don’t forget it, Democrats.

Good Point! What is difference between rioters and Protesters. Libs are protesters, consers are rioters, as per MSM.

Happen in the US, well nothing will happen. That’s how we got to where we are. And they will never eject Trump, if he would only do what he said he would do. Build the god damned wall, lock her up, end Sanctuary Cities and States. So far he hasn’t done a damn thing.

You blame Trump? Congress/Senate/RINOs/Globalist politicians are the problem.

This may happen in spite of Trump.

Yellow vests’ protests may be spreading to other European countries.
In London, supporters are saying that those attending the Brexit March will wear yellow vests as a show of solidarity with the fuel tax protesters in France.
Swedes are protesting mass migration. No Swedish media reported the 3-hour-long protest outside the Swedish Parliament on Sunday.
Protests scheduled for Brussels (Belgium), Amsterdam, and Rotterdam (The Netherlands), and several German cities.

It’s spreading throughout Europe. Next Tuesday, I think, the Brexit vote will spark more of this. I could see this spreading to the U.S. in a year or two. The Arabs had their “spring” that didn’t turn out too well. This won’t end well either.
