Courageous Macron Restarts the Yellow Vests Protest Movement Against Himself

In a move with consequences that anyone could have predicted Macron has galvanized another protest movement against him. Call it the Yellow Vests 2.0 for now.

Macron had been plagued by Europe’s most resilient protest movement for most of his mandate but caught a lucky break with COVID-19. The  Mind Virus of 2020 allowed him to decree lockdowns which also took care of Gilet Jaunes.

Rather than remember he owed his new-found situation as a ruler not facing weekly uprisings to an extremely unlikely gift, he went out of his way to provoke them once again by decreeing Europe’s most Draconian vaccine passport regime.

Why would Macron pull such a self-injuring move? A few possibilities come to mind:

  • After 16 months of lording it over the French people with decree he felt they were now broken and ready to accept anything whatsoever.
  • He thought a Stalinist line on vaccine religion could serve to further divide and suppress the Yellow Vests. (Harder to go for a protest when you’re banned from the train.)
  • Merkel is retiring and he’s coveting the position of EU’s unofficial leader. Forcing through EU’s most South African “virus” regime would impress the classes he is auditioning for.

Perhaps French speakers could contribute other reasons. Whatever Macron’s motivation for the virus apartheid, it has backfired already.

Gilet Jaunes, welcome back!

Reuters:

Police in Paris clashed with protesters railing against President Emmanuel Macron’s plan to require a COVID-19 vaccine certificate or negative PCR test to gain entry to bars, restaurants and cinemas from next month. [And SUPERMARKETS and TRAINS and BUSES.]

Macron this week announced sweeping measures to fight a rapid surge in new coronavirus infections, including the mandatory vaccination of health workers and new health pass rules for the wider public.

In doing so, he went further than most other European nations have done as the highly contagious Delta variant fans a new wave of cases, and other governments are watching carefully to see how the French public responds.

The police fired tear gas on several occasions as pockets of protesters overturned garbage cans and set a mechanical digger alight. Some protesters away from the skirmishes wore badges saying “No to the health pass”.

Some critics of Macron’s plan – which will require shopping malls, cafes, bars and restaurants to check the health passes of all patrons from August – accuse the president of trampling on freedoms and discriminating against those who do not want the COVID shot.

“It’s totally arbitrary and wholly undemocratic,” said one protester who identified himself as Jean-Louis.

Macron says the vaccine is the best way to put France back on the path to normalcy and that he is encouraging as many people as possible to get inoculated.

There were protests in other cities including Nantes, Marseille and Montpellier.

The show of discontent took place on Bastille Day, the anniversary of the 1789 storming of a medieval fortress in Paris which marked the turning point in the French Revolution.

Among other proposals in the government’s draft bill is the mandatory isolation for 10 days of anyone who tests positive, with police making random checks, French media reported. The prime minister’s office did not respond when asked to confirm the detail.

Ivermectin works on any ‘variant’, but that information has to be suppressed or no endless giant payday for Pharma.

Who said french people are cowards that surrender easily? WW2 myth, because the perfidious brits used them as cannon fodder to retreat safely through the straits and saved face blaming their protectors. Not to excuse their elite’s imperialist and genocidal tendencies. It’s THE PEOPLE that deserves RESPECT!! (even if they are considered 100% douches by almost everyone)

Not true! There are many reports of the French just deserting their posts, went to Paris and had a cocktail.

The comparison is not appropriate. Napoleon was a brilliant soldier, commander and statesmen .
This fellow is a brilliant take it up the wazzo-er

French are angry now but watch them vote for him in the coming elections. The propaganda machine will do its best to make sure LePen loses.

according to the CDC, WHO, !!! the death vax causes ‘variant’ cases, only the vaxed are testing positive for cvd19, ‘variants’ of (the common cold) only vary by 0.001%, meaning the human immune system can withstand any new ‘variant’. asymptotic non-vaxed do not spread it. the cvd19 ‘vax’ non-vax, not FDA authorized, is already the most deadly in history, instead of banning it, THEY ban proven safe, effective, cheap treatment.

Macron’s new necktie needs to be a guillotine… the French people are well aware of how to apply that costume.

It is getting to the inevitable point where bacon will be crispied and the pigs that betray those that pay them will not survive the war that is coming. The covaids pedovore filth have no option left other than violence and forced injection of their poison down on animal farm. The anger and violence that this state terror and genocide unleashes will tear Urupp and not only France apart. If the pigs in France and the uninformed uniformed military mutts are exempt from the death shots what kind of message does Poofter Macrony imagine he has sent his livestock? Meanwhile in Germany the army mob have warned their injected uniforms NOT TO FLY for two years after their death shots. Seems like the aristocracy might need these uniforms alive in the coming Dark Winter. So much for the brain dead morons that jostled in line for their death shot “so that we can travel again…” yeah sure idiot all the way to your nearest graveyard.

Onward to Ouch Witz
