Stupid is as stupid does

Typical story:

Emmanuel Macron has lashed out at demonstrators who clashed with police in Paris during the latest protests sparked by rising fuel prices. “Shame on those who attacked” officers, he tweeted. “There is no place for violence in the Republic.” There was chaos on the Champs-Elysées on Saturday as police used tear gas and water cannon to disperse protesters.More than 100,000 people took part in about 1,600 protests across France on Saturday, the interior ministry said. Most passed off peacefully – except in the capital, where 8,000 demonstrators gathered. On Tuesday, Mr Macron is due to address the nation and announce new measures as part of a speech on ecological transition. He is expected to mention the protests and call for nationwide “grassroot debates” on government policies.

“Ecological transition,” what could that mean? It means this idiot has bought into the global warming nonsense, and is taking it out on the people. It is hilarious in its way that this TIME story calls Macron a “pro-business centrist.” Right. It’s not until the last line of the story that you learn putting gas in your car in Paris runs you $7.06 a gallon.

    I am rather surprised by Macron’s, “To hell with the voters.” attitude.

    No conciliatory rhetoric from him or hint of a walk back on the regulations. It’s damn the torpedoes and full steam ahead.

    I am very curious as to how this will turn out. Will the voters win or will Macron win?

    Well there is a French precedent, 1789.

    There is that, Bosun. His arrogance is astounding.
