Paris yellow vest protest draws larger crowds, erupts in violence

An estimated 10,000 ’yellow vest’ protesters took to the streets of Paris Saturday, with the increase in attendance to the weekly event also coinciding with street fires and rioting. The tension comes as President Macron wraps up a series of televised debates concerning the cost-of-living in France. The former investment banker has angered the working class with steep tax cuts for the wealthy.

History repeats. Socialists promise free stuff, the people put them into power. The government stops the free stuff (or the free stuff turns into crap), because it runs out of other people's money. The people get mad, the liars who promised Utopia then use force to quell the surfs. Wash, rinse, repeat, no surprise

The French people are showing real backbone and commitment. I applaud their tenacity and courage. North America take note: we are next.

One of the few clashes where I despise literally every side of the conflict: the protesters, for vast destruction of private property and national heritage; the police for often uncalled for violence that escalates the conflict; and the president, for so many things that I won't even bother to list them here.
