    Not sure about that. The French are rioting against the government for implementing the taxes that will support the global warming accord they signed on to. They are fighting the government that's trying to implement all these socialist changes over there. Antifa supports big government and all the socialist ideas that they love, whereas the French are getting fed up with those ideas.

    So, if they (Antifa) base their actions on political views, the French are against all that Antifa holds dear....

    But, who knows when it comes to lunatic communists, what they'll do.

    That's pretty much my feeling
    I thought I'd look around a little before commenting and really only found this
    (BTW I wouldn't bother clicking the link)

    https://www.vox.com/world/2018/12/4/...rance-protests
    The protests are not “a middle class rebellion against cultural Marxism.” Not even close.

    Not being familiar with Vox I had to look around to see what they're about
    After seeing the lefty spew they put out I'd have to say that my original feeling is probably accurate

    Macron's approval is down to 23 percent, likely the percent of mozlomz and libz in France at the moment.

    These riots seem like a patriotic attempt by middle class French to save their country. They need to ramp it up IMHO.

    This is what happens when the execution of liberalism reaches a point of economic and cultural pain. It would never happen here, because the average young person today is far too brainwashed.

    Too bad the froggies turned in all their guns long ago like good little socialist drones. It could be the French Revolution 2.0 about right now.

    I've been reading various sources on this. This is France, so it's hard to equate this to the US. These protesters don't want additional fuel taxes, that's true. They also, however, want the reinstatement of a tax on the wealthy which Macron actually removed earlier in his term. They absolutely want the welfare state to remain. They want an increase in the minimum wage. Of course, they are not all the same either.

    Not going to lie, it's pretty damn hard for me to feel sympathy for the French. They had their chance to vote for Marine Le Pen, and they chose this asshole. Just as T2K said as well, they still want their socialism; so fuck em.

    I'm getting the impression that they are still a bunch of socialists, they still want their free shit and like any good commie they just want someone else to pay the taxes to fund it

    Sounds like over here with all the leeches wanting a "livable" minimum wage, like that $15/hr. so many of them are claiming they should get.

    My sentiments exactly. They had the chance to choose a real leader vs a fag pro-commie, pro-muslim cuck. Piss on them.

    As I recall, the ballots are already printed, a pile for each candidate is at each polling station. I saw a vid, taken by the jihadist himself, of him going to a polling station, and stealing all the Le Pen ballots. No one did a thing about it. Now multiply this instance with several thousand soros employees doing the same to Le Pen ballots, not to mention the rest of the moderate isis parasites in France and you can see how easily elections in France are stolen.

    Thumbs down

    Let them fall, I could care less. I tried to bash the Frog's on www.waltherforums and everyone trashed me, and reminded me how they helped us in 1776. Well that was then. To me the French will always be Cowards, They ran from the finest Army Germany ever unleashed upon Europe! The only reason they are Free, is because we Invaded Europe, along with England and the U.K. A socialist is a Coward, let the Government take care of them. I hope England is able to recover from the E.U. Paul
