Mass Protests against France’s Macron Ignored by Mainstream Media

Published

on

Although you’d have no idea they were even happening if you’ve only been paying attention to establishment media, massive protests are currently happening in France over President Emmanuel Macron’s climate-alarmist carbon tax policies.

In what’s been called a “yellow jacket revolution,” French people have taken to the streets to express their opposition to crushing carbon taxes levied upon the people by limousine liberal Emmanuel Macron. The series of protests gained its name from the mandatory yellow jackets required in every vehicle in France in case of a road accident.

True to form as an establishment globalist elite, Macron has levied the costs of fighting climate change upon the working and middle-class French people. A massive carbon tax has driven the price of fuel in France to unprecedented heights, making it all the more difficult for the French middle class to provide for themselves and their families. Despite corporate and political elites producing the greatest amounts of carbon emissions and driving pollution, it’s the intolerant peons who must be made to pay the price by their rulers, according to Macron. According to Rush Limbaugh, the whopping carbon tax has raised the price of a gallon of gasoline in Paris to a massive $7.06.

Protestors have shut down prominent Parisian roads and neighborhoods, clashed with riot police, and rallied at French landmarks such as the Arc de Triomphe all the way down the Champs Elysees. The popular anger at Macron has devolved into a considerable amount of hooliganism, and French authorities claimed that over 200 people have been arrested with 92 injured in the series of events.

According to France’s Prime Minister, the first day of the protest on November 17th brought out a massive turnout of 282,000 throughout the country. The protests have continued almost daily. In spite of the enduring popularity of the protest movement, you’d have little to no idea it was even happening if you paid attention to establishment American media.

Undeterred by massive popular opposition and a dismal approval rating of 26%, Macron has continued to advance his vision of a global renaissance for the neoliberal establishment. In the very midst of the protests, he threatened to revoke a trade agreement with Brazil if the South American nation’s incoming President, Jair Bolsonaro, fulfilled his campaign promise to become the next major nation to depart from the Paris Climate Change international agreement.

AMERICA IS BACK BABY!

You didn’t seriously think that after four years of peace in the Middle East, things were gonna stay that way, did you Jack? Well of course not! On Thursday afternoon, the Pentagon confirmed that the United States military had carried out airstrikes in Syria against facilities used by Iranian-backed militias. These groups have been operating in Syria for some time in their fight against the Islamic State and Al-Qaeda.

Pentagon Press Secretary Kirby gave the following statement:

“At President Biden’s direction, U.S. military forces earlier this evening conducted airstrikes against infrastructure utilized by Iranian-backed militant groups in eastern Syria. These strikes were authorized in response to recent attacks against American and Coalition personnel in Iraq, and to ongoing threats to those personnel. Specifically, the strikes destroyed multiple facilities located at a border control point used by a number of Iranian-backed militant groups, including Kait’ib Hezbollah (KH) and Kait’ib Sayyid al-Shuhada (KSS).

This proportionate military response was conducted together with diplomatic measures, including consultation with Coalition partners. The operation sends an unambiguous message: President Biden will act to protect American and Coalition personnel. At the same time, we have acted in a deliberate manner that aims to de-escalate the overall situation in both eastern Syria and Iraq.”

According to conservative commentator Jack Posobiec, Vice President Harris was not included in the discussions about the bombing and is very upset that she wasn’t.

Many Twitter users are also pointing out the fact that Biden had fully condemned unannounced military action in the Middle East when it was Trump doing it.

According to the New York Post, the airstrikes were in response to recent attacks against US forces in Iraq. The militia groups targeted have denied any involvement in the attacks and there has been no confirmation as to whether or not they were involved. The New York Post wrote:

The Pentagon did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

It was not immediately clear if there were any deaths or injuries caused by the US strike, or the extent of damage it may have caused.

On Feb. 15, a rocket attack against a US military base at Erbil International Airport in Northern Iraq killed a US-led coalition contractor and left others wounded, including an American service member.

Two days later, a base hosting US forces north of Baghdad was targeted in another rocket attack, wounding at least one contractor.

On Monday rockets hit Baghdad’s Green Zone, which houses the US embassy and other diplomatic missions.

Earlier this week, the Kataib Hezbollah group, one of the main Iran-aligned Iraqi militia groups, denied any role in recent rocket attacks against U.S. targets in Iraq.

Some Western and Iraqi officials say the attacks, often claimed by little-known groups, are being carried out by militants with links to Kataib Hezbollah as a way for Iranian allies to harass US forces without being held accountable.

Fox New’s Tucker Carlson, who seems to be the only host on any cable news network that has been unquestionably anti-war for the past four years, gave a monologue Thursday night about his take on the attacks:
