The New York Times has a funny article on Macron’s impending demise:
“PARIS — He was the savior of Europe. A 39-year-old maverick who rescued France from the populist tide, the newcomer who crushed his far-right opponent Marine Le Pen in a TV debate on the eve of a presidential election. The leader who would make liberal democracy great again. The visionary who had a plan to jump start the European Union. A 21st-century John Kennedy. Some joked that he could walk on water.
That was 2017. Eighteen months into his presidential term, Emmanuel Macron, faced with an uprising by a leaderless army of working poor in yellow vests and by violence unseen since the student riots of May 1968, is struggling to take back control of his country. The charismatic young president was jeered by protesters who tried to chase his car this week when he visited a public building set afire by rioters in Le Puy-en-Velay, in south-central France. “Macron, démission” — “Macron, resign” — has become the rallying cry of these modern-day sans-culottes, whose anger is directed at him, personally. …
is tax policy made him “the president of the wealthy.” He ignored his falling approval rates; he had set his course. When Fareed Zakaria of CNN asked him on Nov. 10 whether he would have to slow down his reforms, he defiantly answered, “I have been elected for five years and I have no midterms.”
The Yellow Vests have become President Macron’s midterms, only more brutal. He has been so busy that he forgot to create a new political force to support his agenda. That has left him vulnerable, because his party’s Parliament members, elected a few weeks after him, are as inexperienced in politics as he is. …”
When will things change in this country?
I think the Yellow Vests are answering that question. When the establishment provokes a violent popular uprising that spirals toward a revolution, that’s when things will change:
Emmanuel Macron’s approval rating has fallen to 18% after riots against his climate change tax. The protests are continuing despite Macron ending the tax. The French seem to want a nationalist leader with their interests at heart instead of the EU’s. pic.twitter.com/yZjWJ6NEdE

Despite Macron caving, protests continue in Paris and are getting more intense, because this is about so much more than energy taxes.

No, I am not endorsing violence.
I’m just observing events in France and drawing conclusions.
1.) No one has any sympathy for White Nationalist mass shooters and going that route is a proven failure. We’ve seen how the public responds to that time and again.
2.) We’re not going to provoke a mass uprising ourselves with public protests like Charlottesville. At the same time, the streets are where this battle will be won or lost.
Basically, it is up to the people to conclude that voting hasn’t worked and that the political class is screwing them. They will have to take to the streets themselves and engage in a spontaneous uprising like the Arab Spring or the Yellow Vests. We should stay out of it and on the sidelines.
France fears more riots 65,000 police, security officers and Military personnel will be deployed across France this weekend https://t.co/gQ97rkxF7F

Imagine being a (globalist) politician.
Imagine seeing huge anti government protests
Imagine the firefighters and then police pledge allegiance to the people and stand down.
Then this thing shows up…

We’ve already seen the police, firefighters and ambulances turning on Macron. It will be lights out when the military turns on him and sides with the Yellow Vests.
