EMMANUEL Macron’s reputation within the European Union has been seriously damaged by the violent protests engulfing France, which have triggered an “unprecedented political disaster” in the country, experts have warned.

The President’s leadership is hanging by a thread as left-wing groups within the French Parliament discuss launching a no confidence vote against him. According to an Fop-Fiducial poll, Emmanuel Macron’s popularity rating plummeted to a new low of 23 percent in November - down by a massive six percentage points from October. Paris in particular has been under siege from so-called “yellow vest” demonstrators, named after the high-visibility jackets all French motorists have to carry.

...

The French President, along with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, are recognised as figureheads among European Union leaders, but the biggest disaster to hit his presidency thus far could call that into serious question.

“It seriously damages his reputation for technocratic competence “

And there it is. Our would-be globalist masters believe that humanity should be subjugated to a world-wide technocracy. A technocracy that will seek, nor require the consent of the governed.

Fabian Socialist.

They ALL are (the non-violent ones). Look it up—it’s a stealth movement over 100 years old.

Courts, schools, media. Control them, control everyone.

Lesson learned: Don’t bash The Don by comparing nationalism to Nazism.

FREXIT? What’s that, where the people leave Macron? It would be easier to kick him out of the country...perhaps send him to the island off India of those tribal people.

The Tower of babel that the E U has always been is coming apart and not a second too soon. It was always built on a jealousy fueled delusion that Europe could become as good as America by merely saying they are. If the jerks that ran America for the last 70 years had not paid for their security by funding their military this would have happened 25 years ago.

It’s sad that our source of live You Tube video is Russia Today. Are our thoughtmasters going to pretend this isn’t happening?

True...but at least RT seems to be basically unbiased, at least as far as I can tell.

Now they’re torching cars!

A technocracy that will seek, nor require the consent of the governed.

They seem to be saying part of technocratic competence is being able to effectively fool the people, lie to them, and get them to believe the lies.

That is basic Progressivism. It is called "manufacturing consent".
