PARIS (Reuters) – When Emmanuel Macron rose to power, he put the environment at the heart of his agenda. Eighteen months later, anger over those policies has stoked protests that are a huge challenge for the French president. Rioters torched cars and buildings in central Paris on Saturday following two weeks of protests caused partly by higher fuel taxes which Macron says are needed to fight climate change.

France’s Macron learns the hard way: green taxes carry political risks

The Left: President Macron, we need to do something about Global Warming. We support you!
President Macron: We will raise taxes of Fossil Fuels which are the number one contributor to this awful Climate Change
The Left: Va te faire foutre! (Go f*** yourself)

Everybody in Europe is a Socialist till they hit them in the wallet.  The problem is they expected the sacrifices were to be made by somebody else, not them since they are perfectly good Socialists entitled to free foie gras and wine while ranting the evils of Trump and Capitalism.

Semi-retired like Vito Corleone before the heart attack. Consiglieri to J.Kb and AWA. I lived in a Gun Control Paradise: It sucked and got people killed. I do believe that Freedom scares the political elites.

  1. The second to last picture is why I can’t take the Left seriously on anything.

    That is a Guy Fawkes mask. Fawkes was a Catholic who was part of a conspiracy to blow up the English Parliament in order to install a despotic Catholic monarchy.

    He isn’t a “freedom fighter” in any way. He was the Catholic Che of his day. Going to Spain to fight the Protestant Dutch, then going to England where he was captured and killed.

    The image of Fawkes as the freedom fighter against big government is entirely due to the popularity of the movie V for Vendetta.

    These people chose symbols without any understanding of their meaning because these people do not think deep thoughts.

  2. This could have been us if Hittlery Canckles was in the WH.

    As usual, progtards everywhere are all about using other people’s money. When it hits them in their own wallets, the claws come out and they quickly forget that it’s their idiocy that created the problem in the first place.

    1. I can guarantee that every professor decrying “Income Inequality” would not give up a cent of his paycheck to go to raises for non-tenured staff.

      1. Or to reduce tuition. Their calls for “free college for all” are about getting their salary from an unwilling public with government guns doing the collecting.

  3. So the French tolerate ‘diversity’ immigrants raping their women and children, but ef-me, riot about higher gas prices. I guess they are good socialists for tolerating the wonders of diverse cultures, but not great socialists for rampaging against taxes.

    France is lost.
