VIDEO: French Protestors Clash With Police After Macron Eliminates Fuel Tax
French President Emmanuel Macron eliminated his proposed increased fuel tax after protests turned violent Paris last weekend. But Thursday, protestors continued to clash with police, even after Macron gave into their demands, signifying that perhaps it was not the tax that set the protestors off in the first place.
“BREAKING: France protests turn violent, as yellow-jacket protesters begin clashing with police. One thing is becoming abundantly clear, these protests are not about a ‘gas tax increase.’ They want corrupt globalist Macron to step down,” said Republican strategist Mike Tokes on Twitter, attaching a video of the latest clashes.
The media has been largely silent about the French uprising. As Big League Politics reported:
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.
The press is likely staying away from the subject given that Macron, an avowed globalist who has taken swipes at President Donald J. Trump, is seen as friend of the world government and elite. France is one of the major players in the European Union. A referendum similar to Britain’s Brexit could be devastating to the tyrannical multinational organization.
Thursday, Macron’s approval hit an all time low 23 percent.
Thought the press seems disconcerted, Macron himself is predicting major violence this weekend across his country, according to The Sun.
“We have reason to fear a great violence this Saturday,” a spokesman for Macron reportedly said.
