Fearful rhetoric is coming from the highest levels of France's government as a source at the Presidential Elysee Palace told the "Le Figaro" newspaper that the 'yellow vests' are attempting a coup.
That source was quoted by "Le Figaro":
"They are putschists. We are in a putschist attempt."
A "yellow vests" protester told a television program on BFM-TV Wednesday night that hoped to be in the Elysee Palace on Saturday.
But that protester, Eric Drouet, set the record straight from his perspective in a "Facebook" video today (Thursday). Drouet said in part:
"I do not call for hatred. I say we must go peacefully. We must stop stigmatizing the yellow vests......

“putschists” is their way of saying “nazis”. They deserve to topple if that’s their response to everything.
Macaroni better keep his head about him. No guillotine pun intended.
What is there to gain if this guy resigns and they still keep the same government?
You gave a good nose for news, but this is horribly written.
What stopped you from posting the whole thing?
Get a job, frootloop.

His momwife will save him.
Is France becoming ungovernable? Both Socialist and Technocrats are too unpopular to govern?
France has the highest percentage of Gross Domestic Product spent by Government on the planet, 56.37%.
Has France reached the point where the there is no more "other people's money" to spend?
He’s right. They people are commiting a coup against elites who no longer represent them or act in their interest. We did that in 2016. Now we’re battling a counter-coup from the deep state.
Vive la guerre!
Vive le sacre mercenaire!
How can you govern a country that has two hundred and forty-six varieties of cheese?
Comment voulez-vous gouverner un pays qui a deux cent quarante-six variétés de fromage?

You mean, like this? Why didn’t you do it?
FRANCE LATEST: PRESIDENTIAL SOURCE SAYS ‘THEY ARE PUTSCHISTS’, MASS ARRESTS AT HIGH SCHOOL NEAR PARIS
Fearful rhetoric is coming from the highest levels of France’s government as a source at the Presidential Elysee Palace told the “Le Figaro” newspaper that the ‘yellow vests’ are attempting a coup.
The source was quoted by “Le Figaro”:
“They are putschists. We are in a putschist attempt”
A “yellow vests” protester told a television program on BFM-TV Wednesday night that he hoped to be in the Elysee Palace on Saturday.
But the protester, Eric Drouet, set the record straight from his perspective in a Facebook video today (Thursday). Drouet said in part:
“I do not call for hatred. I say we must go peacefully. We must stop stigmatizing the yellow vests.....
I never said that I wanted to go to the Elysee to break everything, but to be heard...”
146 were arrested today (Thursday) outside a high school a few miles northwest of Paris in Mantes-la-Jolie after clashes with the police.
More than 700 high school students were arrested across France on Thursday.
Speaking before the French Senate today Prime Minister Edouard Philippe announced the deployment of “exceptional resources” this Saturday along with the mobilization of 65-thousand police.
He upped that number to 89-thousand by the time he appeared on television this evening.
News reports speak of authorities moving beyond the usual tactics of tear gas, stun grenades and water cannon to include use of armored vehicles to help push the protesters off the streets this Saturday.
Also being discussed in the media is the use of the army Saturday purportedly to protect “monuments” like the Arc de Triomphe which was a center of protest last Saturday with damage reported.
Truck drivers unions are calling for strike action on Sunday while the BBC reports this:
“....One police union, Vigi, called for a strike of its administrative staff working in the interior ministry for Saturday-saying that without the support of such staff, the police would be immobilized.
