Published

The French are ready to revolt.

Polling firm IFOP conducted a poll showing that 39 percent of the French believed that revolution is needed to bring about real change in the country.

According to Atlantico, this figure is much higher than anywhere else in Europe.

For example, only 20 percent of Germans were in favor of taking a revolutionary approach to bringing political change, whereas 14 percent of Austrians and Poles shared similar views.

IFOP’s consulting director David Nguyen addressed the poll’s results, saying, “The first thing to say is that this is an absolutely spectacular number. Four in ten consider that a revolution would be a good solution: even if we do not know exactly what they put behind this word, it is the mark of a radical presence very present in the society.”

Nguyen added:

“What allows us to say that this is an important rate is that this figure is much higher than in all the other European countries that we tested.”

The consulting director also raised an important point about how these numbers are indicative of broad support for the Gilets Jaunes (Yellow Vests) movement. Nguyen said, “The government can not, therefore, bet on a major shift in opinion towards yellow vests, simply because their social demands will always be legitimate for a whole section of the population.”

According to Nguyen, support for revolution cut across the political spectrum, with right wing populist party Rassemblement National (National Rally) and far left France Insoumise (Unsubmissive France) favoring revolutionary means for achieving political change.

Recent opinion polls also demonstrate that there exists broad support for the Yellow Vest Movement from both of the aforementioned parties.

Nguyen stated that feelings of political anger are much higher in France than other countries.

The polling expert explained:

“This is very worrying because these negative feelings are even more shared in France than in other European countries. In particular, the feeling of anger which is a priori the main engine of a revolutionary spirit.”

The feelings of discontent among the French populace are understandable given the social effects of questionable migration policies and the burdensome nature of the French state.

Senior research fellow at the Mercatus Center Veronique de Rugy argues that the French welfare state has been the main culprit behind these upheavals throughout France.

De Rugy observes that French citizens pay for their lavish government services through “oppressive and regressive taxes (i.e., taxes heaped on to the backs of the middle class and the poor).”

Now the effects of these regressive taxes are beginning to take their toll on the French working classes, which has led them to take to the streets.

With no real meaningful reforms coming from Emmanuel Macron’s administration, it appears that Yellow Vest protest movement is not going away anytime soon in France.

A Week After Getting Kicked Off YouTube, Stefan Molyneux Gets Booted from Twitter

Published

on

On July 7, 2020, right wing social media philosopher Stefan Molyneux received a suspension from Twitter, a week following his ban from YouTube. This move comes at a time when many people are questioning Big Tech’s influence on political discussion on the Internet

The ban was implemented without even so much as a warning, according to a report by RT. Molyneux explained the situation during a livestream. “It’s nice to see that Twitter is talking to tech journalists before they would talk to me,” he commented. The right-wing pundit asserted that he was suspended from the platform following the promotion of a new essay that details his values and beliefs. “It’s not hard to understand why powerful people might not want you to read what I wrote below,” Molyneux wrote in a note detailing his suspension from Twitter.

Molyneux is of the opinion that the campaign to deplatform conservative influences has begun to “energize” conservatives. He believes that his ban shows “who has the power and who doesn’t have the power.”

Twitter disputed the idea that he was kicked off for ideological reasons. Twitter provided a statement to CNN in which it contended that Molyneux “was suspended for spam and platform manipulation, specifically operating fake accounts.”

But others condemned Twitter’s decision and warned of a growing assault on free speech, expecting “the purge” to “accelerate.”

Fellow commentators such as Mike Cernovich were critical of this decision. He took it a step further by predicting that the group of renowned public figures who recently signed on to an open letter calling out cancel culture would not bother to defend Molyneux.

Cernovich tweeted,”The Venn diagram of people who just signed that Against Cancel Culture letter and those who will mention Stefan Molyneux being banned will be two wholly non-intersecting circles.”

Molyneux is the host of Freedomain Radio and was permanently unpersoned from YouTube on June 29 after supposedly being in violation of the site’s “hate speech” policies.

Molyneux’s removal comes at a time when Big Tech is putting the clamps on all forms of right-wing dissent.

BLP previously reported on Big Tech attacking pro-gun groups as part of their plan to muzzle any form of right-wing expression.

As the 2020 elections approach, this kind of censorship will likely increase against figures who actually stir the pot.
