Skip to comments.France - Clash Between Yellow Jackets vs. Police Show Medieval Violence Level

30 second daytime video shows high level of street violence:
Constant shower of rocks, use of trucheons, gate barricades are thrown --a high level of energy.
If you see the clip, you could say this looks vaguely revolutionary.
I also heard a ZeroHedge claim that 90,000 troops will be deployed across France.
I would really say this is not simply about a gas tax, they seem pissed about A LOT of stuff.
The Carbon Tax tarted-up as a “Gas Tax” was just the breaking point. This is a reaction to a long train of abuses.
holy moly, the crowds have the police on the run.
A lot of this violence is meaningful.
Yet there are recent French arrivals who are quite naturally attracted to violence, regardless of the causes; they will join in, and their thinking is utterly different.
I think it will be hard for a lot of people to seperate the background noise violence from the component of the destruction that is CONstructive.
This is the danger of letting Antifa commit chaos at will. The violence, at some point, could escalate beyond anything even they had planned, and take it in places they didn't anticipate.
The Paris mob.
In business since 1787
Time to make plans to bring all the nukes and art to the US.
The ladies look really unhappy.
It's not Antifa. It's not organized.
If the French could round up ringleaders and stop this they would.
So Georgia Tech better get a new head coach soon.
“Pair of pliers and a BLOW-TORCH..!”
I meant Antifa here in the USA. Sorry I didn’t make that clearer. As it stands, our cops stand back and let them do what they want until they disperse on their own. At some point, they may not disperse. What then? Then it’s a fight, and a big one.
I thought that was Hillary when I first looked at the picture.
The torch of Freedom is alight in Paris today. Freedom is a heady drink, intoxicating and addictive. This is the light of history. Trump is on the right side , Macron is on the wrong side. Change is coming to France and Europe—it will come to this land as well.
