French economy cratering b/c global warming taxes

But what about the polar bears?!?!  What's that?  They exist in record numbers?  

"The French government is considering "all options" to control protests against rising fuel prices that have turned violent in Paris over the last three weeks, a spokesman said Sunday.

Speaking on France's Europe 1 radio, spokesman Benjamin Griveaux said the government is thinking about steps to prevent "serious outbursts of violence," including introducing a state of emergency.

More than 400 people were arrested and 133 injured in Paris on Saturday in clashes between police and protesters with the "gilets jaune" or "yellow vest" movement, who are protesting rising gas prices and taxes on polluting forms of transport.

An estimated 36,000 people demonstrated in Saturday's protests across the country, marking the third consecutive week of such demonstrations, according to the French Interior Ministry. About 53,000 participated last week and about 113,000 the week before."

and:

"The CMPE, a union of employers  has called for the cancellation of the fuel tax hike, judging the "risk of paralysis of the French economy" as being "quite real."
-------------------------------

It's now very clear that the global warming will dooooooom mankind hoax is just another lever of those who would rule the world to squeeze more taxes out of average people... before the great cull.

It's so obviously a scam that Antifa and conservatives are said to be rioting on same side.

The police will apparently join the rioters this Saturday in part pf the protest of global warming taxes:

"Warning of an unlimited strike filed to start 8 December. Same fight as that of the Yellow Jackets for [retaining/increasing] purchasing power. Messeiurs Castaner and Macron, you are going to finally hear us.

The demands made by the Yellow Jacket movement, concern us all. It is time to organize legally and be in solidarity with them, for the benefit of all. We are concerned because we are part of the people."
------------------------------

Just how bat-shit crazy does Marcon have to be to have the cops joining the rioters?  Believing that a warmer earf will make a species which evolved at the equator in Africa extinct crazy.

Yeah, don't kid yourself.

This isn't about a gas tax.

That's the excuse.

This is about Macron flooding France with a bunch of African scumbags who are destroying everything in sight and drying up the teat of their socialist utopia.

See, socialism only works as a closed system.  You cant have social programs AND unchecked immigration, they don't work.

France is waking up to that.

Ahh... what now?  Pretty sure socialism never works.  France just sped up the inevitable fail.

And it's over - Macron Cancels Fuel Tax Hike Completely, Humiliating His PM Who Spoke Only of Suspension; Government in Crisis As Fear of Extreme-Right/Extreme-Left Radical Violence and Even a "Putsch" Grows

"L'Elysee [the French White House] has finally decided to abandon entirely and simply the increase planned for 2019. A true repudiation for the Prime Minister.

The below-the-surface differences just burst out into broad daylight. Between Emmanuel Macron and Edouard Phillipe, the stakes are now set. "There's a difference in the each man's course them that is no longer sustainable," said a major player in the [leglislative] Majority.

And for that reason, less than 24 hours after the announcement by the Prime Minister of a fiscal pause for six months on the [taxes on] gas and diesel, l'Elysee announced Tuesday night the abandonment pure and simple of the increase initially planned.

"The president understood that this notion of a moratorium was considered by the people a half-step, and he considered that we wouldn't have the right to suggest it. [I think they mean: Suggest the possibility of going back on the suspension and re-instituting the tax.] It would be a step too far," said the close advisers of the chief of state this evening.

More than a simple maess, it was a true repudiation."
----------------------------------

Well, that last sentence isn't true - to be repudiated, they'd have to admit the entire thing was a fraud used only to bilk yet more money from taxpayers.

Still, it's a win locally for those poor fools who don't want their heating bills tripled, and a warning to globalist politicians who wanted to do the same in all Western countries.

Its over for Macron anyways, he's lucky he's not getting guillotined.

As far as socialism 'working', you can have a heavy social program state with smoking high taxes 'work'; provided you have a largely homogeneous society and virtually NO immigration.

BUT, you can't have smoking high taxes, heavy government social programs, AND unchecked immigration.  Dog don't hunt, see?

However, that doesn't mean that whatever-stripe socialism you look at doesn't suck, but it CAN work in theory.

Of course, I prefer Constitutional Republics with low taxes.
