This is the seventh weekend that the protestors have taken to the streets in France. During their week, the mainstream press reported them as protests over a fuel tax. But when French President Emmanuel Macron agreed to nix the tax, the protests continued. Since then, the press has been silent.
The true motivation for the protests is growing disdain for unelected globalist elites in the European Union who have seized power over sovereign nations and their citizens.
Big League Politics reported:
The Yellow Vest protests in France are set to enter their third weekend while the French government is warning about a potential “coup attempt.”
“The intelligence services have reported to the Elysee Palace, the official residence of the president, that there have been ‘calls to kill’ and ‘carry arms to attack’ parliamentarians, government officials and police officers, Le Figaro newspaper said on Thursday,” according to an RT report.
RT cited a French source who said “this is a coup attempt.” The French government has reportedly banned employees from working this weekend.
“On Thursday Eric Drouet one of the movement’s most famous leaders announced the Yellow Vests plans to approach the residence of Emmanuel Macron. ‘Saturday will be the final outcome, Saturday is the Elysee, we all would like to go to the Elysee,’” he said according to the report.
The French protests were sparked over a fuel tax increase, but have grown into something much larger. Both the political left and right have teamed up to protest Macron while American mainstream press has largely ignored the groundbreaking events. Even after Macron abandoned his plans for the fuel tax, the protestors have pressed forward.
The protest have spread to other countries in Europe, including Belgium and Ireland, and as far as Beirut, Lebanon.
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.
