RIOT: French Protesters Burn Champs-Élysées Over Carbon Tax

The Daily Wire
Emily Zanotti
November 25, 2018

excerpt:

Law enforcement and fire patrol are struggling to keep the peace (and keep the Champs-Élysées from burning) in Paris as riotous protests enter their eighth day.

Although the most violent ?and deadliest ?demonstrations have taken place in Paris, protests are being held country-wide over a proposed increase in France's "fuel tax" designed to curb fuel usage and cut down on carbon emissions to prevent "climate change." French President Emmanuel Macron is pushing the tax to help cut down on the country's dependence on fossil fuels and to "fund renewable energy projects," according to the Associated Press.

"The anger is mainly over a hike in the diesel fuel tax, which has gone up seven euro cents per liter (nearly 30 U.S. cents per gallon) and will keep climbing in coming years, according to Transport Minister Elisabeth Borne. The tax on gasoline is also to increase four euro cents. Gasoline currently costs about 1.64 euros a liter in Paris ($7.06 a gallon), slightly more than diesel," the <censored> says.

On Saturday, thousands of protesters, clad in the bright green safety vests all Parisians are required to keep in their car for emergencies, set fire to barricades in a massive bonfire near the famous Arc de Triomphe, and waged a campaign of destruction along Paris's main shopping and dining thoroughfare, the Champs-Élysées.

More than a dozen people ?including one police officer ?have been hurt in the melee, and one person has been seriously injured. More than 3,000 law enforcement officers have been deployed to contain the situation and enforce "no-go" zones around government buildings and in heavily trafficked tourist areas.

What do they expect? The smart people have already figured out that man made "climate change" is bs and that the "elites" are using it as an excuse to gain control and bleed more money from the masses in the name of "the planet" and feed that cash cow to a few select groups or scientists for "research".

According to their so-called "experts" (paid lackeys for the uninformed) we were supposed to have crossed the point of no return already, but they keep pushing the date back in order to feed the fears and fill their coffers.

While this was playing out in Paris CNN had NO MENTION of it on their website. I guess rioting against carbon taxes doesn't fit the narrative they want to project.

We live right down from the Arc de Triomphe which is at the top of the Champs Elysees. If I could figure out how to do it I could post videos of the protesters doing their crap up our street and then of them running away after the police charged them. These events were repeated all over the area as the protesters would reform and then push towards the Champs Elysees again.

I get that their taxes are high and that gas running at over $8/gallon is ridiculous. That being said, I don't know how pulling down construction site fencing and barriers, breaking windows and burning <censored>, knocking over motorcycles and throwing bikes into the middle of the street address any of that.

Bingo. I started with a local Greenpeace group when I was in high school. We were pushing for ethanol legislation that would have required a specific separator to process. Most of the other kids came from higher income families than mine. I proposed that instead of legislation which would mandate government contracts, we should encourage others to invest directly into the ethanol company, its vendors, et cetera.

That would have shown initiative and possibly had led to private sustainability. Turns out that one member's dad happened to be VP of sales at a company that would have supplied the specific separator. Which was also in talks of forming an employee union at its manufacturing facility depending whether the legislation passed. I stopped going to meetings when they were held at his house. Then dropped out altogether when I realized that I had stepped through the green door into a red world.

I can think of a particular clubhouse where I dare them to deliberately knock over a few motorcycles...

People seem to be getting more and more impatient these days. Instead of waiting for an election so they can vote out those responsible for policies they don't like, they choose to riot for instant results.

The French are a strange lot. They will violently protest a rise in gas taxes AND they would equally violently oppose any efforts to reduce their social benefits or increase their work week. They would not see the hypocrisy or the doublethink in those stances.
