The French government expects the Gilets Jaunes (Yellow Vest) protests in Paris this weekend could be more violent than ever, despite President Emmanuel Macron buckling on fuel tax hikes.

The Élysée Palace, seat of President Emmanuel Macron, announced to French media they are expecting “great violence” on Saturday as Yellow Vest protestors have announced “Act IV” of their nearly four-week-long protest against the Macron regime that was initially sparked by a rise in fuel taxes, franceinfo reports.

According to the Élysée, they expect “a hard core of several thousand people” to arrive in Paris on Saturday with the intent to “break and kill."

Much as I empathize with their cause, disruptions like these can seriously destabilize a society and make it ripe for plucking by highly undesirable factions.

This is gonna get very interesting.

What’s the opposite of “cometh the hour, cometh the man?”

the metrosexual, globalist faggot Macron is exactly the wrong man, at the wrong time for France.

The Police Union Vigi Ministère de l’Intérieur has not only expressed support for the Yellow Vest movement but has called on members to go on an indefinite strike starting on Saturday, and join the Yellow Vests.

“It is time to organise legally and to be in solidarity with them, for the benefit of all,” the union said and added, “We know that we will have wounded and we fear to have dead among us.”

It's 1989 again.

So, it is late afternoon/early evening there in Paris. Have the riots started yet?

Sounds like Graham is going to see a regime change. But not in Saudi Arabia.

Not if the underground panzer factories are as busy as I think they are.

When the Deep State finally makes its move on Trump you KNOW that we’re going to have to do the same thing, right?

We'd better hope it doesn't come to that.

I think the undesirable factions are in charge now. This about more than the gas tax. As another Freeper pointed out, ours started with a tea tax.

But yes, that is a concern of any rebellion/civil war, wrong party takes control.

Hope is a necessary, but insufficient condition.

"Plan A" is to support President Trump and hope for the best.

It would be prudent to have "Plan B" and "Plan C" as a backup.

The Plan B and C in our country would be the Police killing us. Unlike the Black Communities where they pull back for some reason I don’t think they would against conservatives. Yes there would be many that would defect to our side, but the upper echelon would give the orders, that were taken from the Mayors and possibly Governors giving the orders to them. Remember the Mayor of Portland.
I am just being paranoid, or am I?

Nutty people like the mayor of Portland do not stand alone.
Portland is full of Godless democrats (similar to Godless communists)

On the other hand, if you don’t have disruptions like these, society remains plucked, and in the hands of highly undesirable factions.

You’re right, it’s dangerous. But these days there are no realistic alternatives. Take us, we voted for Trump, but the entire government has remained the same and committed to ignoring the election.

The people in the street are calling for Trump. Le Pen will be installed within the year.

Yep. Bug out bag packed and ready. 2 weeks in DC with 5 million patriots should do it.

We had to do it, to learn how entrenched they are. Now we see how our little presidential elections are our soma and circuses, little more than our sports teams battling.

So far as I can tell, this is a minority (of the police) union, so I’m not sure how substantial it is. Still, this looks very nasty, indeed. I hope that appearance is wrong...
