France Torn by Gas Tax Riots

So how do you like your “centrist” president now, France?

France has been torn all week by riots over a huge gasoline tax increase imposed by President Emmanuel Macron ( Lots of fires, roadblocks, tear gas, etc.

The tax was imposed to Save The Planet From Fossil Fuels, and who cares what it does to people who need their cars to get to work and manage their households? That it was a profoundly stupid reason for raising the taxes doesn’t seem to register with the French government.

France’s fake nooze media portrayed Macron as a comfy, cozy centrist and his rival for the presidency, Marine LePen, as a totally crazy right-wing loon. If the French voters had read the British nooze media instead of their own, they might have discovered that Macron isn’t on their side. This is the guy who said there’s not really any such thing as French culture. DeGaulle is turning over in his grave.

Liberals–governing their countries right back into the Middle Ages.

  1. I was going to comment, but actually, words fail me on this one. France was always such a proud country, but…

  2. I thought Socialists were going to pay for their utopia by taking money from the rich and distributing it to the poor – you know, “From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs.” Raising the gas tax is hurting those “according to his needs” more than anyone else.
