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.
Italian Populist Youth Group Praises Trump for His Peace Efforts
The Lega Nord is one of Europe’s strongest populist parties.
The Lega Giovani, the youth branch of Salvini’s Lega party, announced its support in nominating President Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Due to Trump’s efforts in brokering peace deals between Gulf Arab states and Israel, one Norwegian lawmaker Christian Tybring-Gjedde nominated the president for the Nobel Peace prize.
In a statement, Luca Toccalini, a member of the Italian Parliament and Chairman of Lega Giovani, declared that the “globalist left is losing its mind, scared by the outcome of the upcoming American elections, and this latest news decisively increased their worries.”
Toccalini added that Lega Giovani “strongly” supports the “nomination of President Donald Trump, a just reward for the continued dedication of his administration for lasting peace with a bilateral and multi polar approach.”
The populist Italian member of Parliament noted how Trump’s Middle East agenda has contrasted with Obama’s:
After a decade of turmoil in the Middle East and North Africa, sponsored by a globalist agenda and President Obama’s dreams of revolution, the last 4 years have seen great improvement for the stability in our neighbourhood which has also helped Europe.
Wishing four more years of peace and greatness, as Lega Giavani we strongly support Donald J. Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Matteo Salvini and Lega have led the way in putting populism on the map throughout Europe. Salvini broke the mold by implementing pro-gun reforms in 2018 and 2019. What seems like a concept that is only confined to the U.S., now the right to bear arms is starting to enter the conversation in Europe. Political organizations like Lega have undoubtedly changed political discourse in Italian politics and Europe, for that matter.
Youth organizations such as Lega Giovani will play a substantial role in spreading Lega’s message and educating younger generations of Italians and preparing them to be the new populist vanguard of an ever-changing European polity.
