NY Times Editorial Board So Excited Over Macron Responding To Protesters They Forget To Say What Protest Was About

Is it still fake news when it is in the opinion section? Yes, yes it is

Macron Blinks
France’s imperious young leader has heard the anger of his marginalized citizens and has begun to respond.

The Times usually reserves the word imperious for Trump, which is not a good thing. Unless them mean “intensely compelling.” But, they won’t give up on their bro-love for Macron

President Emmanuel Macron did what he had to do on Monday after a month of massive grass-roots protests, going on national television to acknowledge that he had been out of touch with the many people outside France’s major cities struggling to make ends meet and granting them some immediate tax cuts and income increases.

For a young president who swept to power with a resounding majority a scant 19 months ago at the head of a movement that promised to put the republic “on the move,” it was a painful moment, especially since it remained unclear whether his concessions would defuse the revolt of the “Yellow Vests” (whom he never mentioned). But it was not a surrender: The 13-minute address contained no apology and no sign that Mr. Macron had any intention of abandoning his economic program.

A lot rides on Mr. Macron’s ability to survive and respond to this uprising, not only for France but for all Western democracies in which the deindustrialized hinterlands have fostered an angry sense of marginalization and neglect. The Yellow Vests on the Champs-Élysées are cousins of the British who voted for Brexit, the Americans who voted for Donald Trump, and the Poles, Hungarians and Italians who elected populist, anti-democratic governments.

Nowhere is it mentioned that this all started over climate change taxes on fuels going up again, nor anywhere else in the article. And the NYTEB featuring racist Sarah Jeong attempts to make this all about those countryside yahoos, making them out to be right wingers, when, in fact, there is a mixture of people from the cities, including Paris, the countryside, and the suburbs. They are middle and lower class. They run from very far left to very far right.

It’s like the members of the editorial board failed to actually read any of the NY Times articles on the protests/riots. Or simply ignored what they were about.

All of that seems clear in retrospect, and Mr. Macron insists he has absorbed the message of the Yellow Vests and will pay heed to the ordinary citizens whose tax-eaten income barely stretches to the end of the month. Less clear is whether the demonstrators, whose Saturday invasions of Paris and other major cities have had no single organizer or common agenda, will be satisfied. And if the Saturday protests continue, the demonstrations are likely to be increasingly hijacked by violence-prone thugs.

Again, no mention of much of the tax-eaten income being eaten by France’s climate change policies. Sure, not all. I wonder if the NYTEB even considered that this is one reason Republicans are against the Big Government Democrats push and the Times approves of? That these big government policies lead to hard times for the middle and lower classes? Because they do.

Oh, and that Warmists love all these climate policies and taxes right up to the point they realize that they’ll be paying for it themselves.

    Many experts are claiming the EU is fixing to be no more. They are ripe for a catastrophic Euro Failure and when that happens the entire EU will break up because they will go into not a recession but a depression.

    For the first time in the history of the EU the council REJECTED an member nations BUDGET. Can you believe that? That would be like Washington DC rejecting Wisconsin’s budget, but in reality the EU has and always will be authoritarian and bordering on Fascist.

    Remember Fascism is the government telling business and the people what they can and cant do. The EU council sets quotas for immigration and each nation must meet these quotas. The EU is fixing to go up in flames over their authoritarian rule and their total disregard for the GREAT UNWASHED MASSES who are the ones paying the price for this obscene rule. It was this exact scenario that cause revolutions all over Europe during the 17th and 18th centuries and here they are again.

    Back at it again.

    It’s that White Privilege thing again. Whites are the only race privileged enough to destroy themselves.

    I really hope the DUMBOcrats push for the carbon tax. We should start a yellow vest protest here with a reminder that we have guns.
