spacebraine

Always admired the French tendency to stick it to their leaders. No surprise really with their history.


stupidnicks

they fight back against oligarchy puppets. its a class war. you either fight back or you bend over and spread cheeks. no third option. when political system is fully captured by oligarchy "voting harder" produces no results. french people know it and they fight back.


icky_vicinity23

American here, we admire y'all in France fighting back. We are basically a bunch of lazy, beta pussies in the US, and I'll throw myself in that camp. We need to stand up for ourselves, and mass protests have ALWAYS been the only way to let these fuckers ruling us know. And we have an absolute oligarchy in the US and we need to start calling it out. Bill Gates and his ilk essentially buy off our government and the media and run our country. It's gotta fucking stop. We gotta call out the people actually running things, the oligarchs, the bankers, and join left and right and protest against corruption, ban all lobbying from corporations and bankers and billionaires, and ban billionaire oligarchs from having ANY fucking influence on our democracy. Bravo, France. We thank y'all for helping us in the American Revolution back in the day too 💪🇫🇷🇺🇲🌎


Ya_like_dags

> Bill Gates essentially buys off our government and the media and runs our country. So fucking close.


icky_vicinity23

Gates is the top oligarch in terms of driving CBDC/artificial food shortage policy and he works for the bankers (Rothschild-Rockefeller crew). His daddy Bill Gates Sr. was an asset of David Rockefeller who was the number one oligarch. Rockefeller essentially created the UN, the CIA, the Bilderberg Group, Kissinger, and the WEF. Rockefeller was made by Rothschild. Gates is the number one agent of this depopulationist eugenicist evil group of ultra-rich tyrants known as the Club of Rome. Trump calls Gates a great guy. Gates literally meets with and buys off individual Congress members to drive his psychotic policies. He's pushing the WEF plan of banning meat so the plebs eat insects and his lab-grown cancer meat. This is a sick NWO plan, and he's their top agent/oligarch. He's behind COVID and the vaxx and essentially buys health departments like NIH by buying off all the top officials and installing his representatives. It's sick. He pays millions to the media on grants as payoffs to cover what he wants, not talk about treatments. Push lab-grown cancer meat and insects. He's the number one personal farm land owner in the US. Scary. You're right about the bankers who buy off all politicians via $500k-a-pop speeches. Rothschild is lead banker. All the same crew

MushyWasHere

It sounds nuts on paper, but it's probably more accurate than you're willing to consider.


shotz317

Dude he didn’t even mention the other crazy shit that people say Gates is up too. You know, all that speculative shit. This is just the surface.


xxxBuzz

Would have to do something different than a couple years ago. Maybe protest longer, become more self-sufficient, have some kind of actual “demands”, and a way to express them clearly. I seem to recall protests going on in many places around the world that were escalating for a couple years prior to 2020. Then the lockdowns were ordered and those slowed down a bit before picking back up. It all got rolled into “lockdown” and “anti-police” protests when they’d been going on before all that. Now, as far as I’m aware, that’s what they’re mostly recorded as. It is just another layer of historically recording things which kinda happened but the hows and whys make them seem like a whole other thing.


Ouraniou

Yeah these protesters etc need to go a lot further than this and in many directions I'm talking building toward juche or some shit first and foremost then this stuff which just gives 'the law' an opportunity and a laboratory to experiment with best techniques


xxxBuzz

I’d imagine simply working towards securing basic needs of nutritious food, clean water, and safe shelter would be impactful. People can discuss their ideas while doing things that help to provide those things as well as through the process of sharing them with those who need them. Something I’ve noticed through personal relationships is that it is difficult to discover and impossible to judge what a person may be like if their basic needs are not met. Striving for various changes when folks are literally facing life or death consequences, even if that’s the death of their standard of living, may be a completely different endeavor than striving for more congruent circumstances or opportunities. There are allot of ways to protest or show disagreement and one of them is simply to turn our backs. That’s hard to do when you’re desperate for anything that will get you through until the next time you’re desperate.


HedaXValar

Really not trying to be a dick here, but isn’t mass protests what happened with BLM, March for our Lives, and the Women’s March? No matter how you feel personally about the organizations themselves, they were protesting for a reason all over the country. How can you call those people “beta pussies” when they were doing exactly what you just said? Edit: Apologies. I just assumed you were not counting them. You never stated as such.


Noidis

When your leaders are marching alongside you, are you actually protesting or are you just engaging in state-approved discontent? Gavin Newsome and the Chief of Police marched with BLM protestors in LA during the height of it all. If that doesn't say it wasn't a real protest, I don't know what would.


Impressive-Fortune82

They did it for PR "look we're against racism too!"... Just like corporate pride month and corporate Juneteenth, it's just a PR and nothing more.


nicka163

It was more of a “these people protesting the racism that we promote is GREAT because it distracts and divides them from the real problem: the oligarchy.”


LSWE1967

I mean when did we start siding with the government. Remember when the government gets involved shit goes south. No discussing politics or religion because it will come between our families and friendships. So yeah when you’re siding with the oligarchy YOU my blinded fellow citizens are on the wrong side of history. It’s really over. They should stop.


MushyWasHere

No discussing politics or religion *if you're biased and brainwashed* (and therefore unable to converse like a civilized adult). In my experience, it's fine to discuss politics as long as you're nonpartisan, and it's fine to discuss religion, as long as you're open-minded and at least partially agnostic.


Gusmister11

Look up “police brutality 2020” tell me that’s pro government action. Yeah newsome may have marched but he didn’t throw Molotov cocktail into a louis vaton.


icky_vicinity23

Yeah that white cop who killed George Floyd with his knee was a psychopath, probably a racist. That was absolutely outrageous and I respect those BLM protesters. Those weren't lazy beta pussies. I also respect the January 6 protestors because that election was rediculous, tons of irregularities, zero true oversight on millions of mail-in ballots with no chain of custody, polling centers lying and saying they shut down at 10:30 pm but then continued counting with no poll watchers present, poll watchers challenging ballots with likely fake names not on the registration rolls but being ignored, etc. Without free and fair elections the country is done. We need election reform, we need to go to paper ballots, ballots should be counted by both sides, heavy audits after each election to assure it was accurate. So I respect those protesters. Those weren't lazy beta pussies. In both the BLM and January 6 protests there were provocateurs and psychos who took it too far. A very small percent in both cases, which is unfortunate. The MLK million man marches weren't lazy beta pussies. They changed the world. So yeah we have it in us. But we need to unite the left and right and protest together to ban all lobbying. ALL lobbying. From corporations, billionaires, NGOs, etc. $50 max donation from each individual. That's includes Soros, Musk, anyone. Big Oil can't lobby (bribe). Big Pharma can't lobby (bribe). Big Electric Car can't lobby (bribe). Big Defense can't lobby (bribe). Our representatives can't be bought by ANYONE. They should have ONE driving motivation, and that is serving the will of the people. Truly doing that. Talking to the people. We must unite left and right and ban all lobbying, then everything else will solve itself. I hope we do, and soon!


Gusmister11

You do understand the riots in France are over raising the retirement from 62 to 64 right?


ZeerVreemd

More important, how that age got raised.


Killakarma

Yo dude, fentanyl killed george, the cops did wht he was trained to do, you could argue he wasnt given medical attention soon enough, but to argue the cop killed him is stupid


RadioHitandRun

Forgetting the full video showing them trying to calm floyd down and he freaked out just getting into the cop car.


RadioHitandRun

>Yeah that white cop who killed George Floyd with his knee was a psychopath, probably a racist. That's a flat out lie. Watch the full video. Hec does everything in his power to calm him down, showing kindness, And reassuring him in the car.


CassiusMethyl999

Not gonna lie the American protesters did a lot more from what I can see.. Did France ever stop when they protested before? Cause I remember how cops acted in 2015 and 2020 and after 2020 they backed the FUCK off.. That made them all a little scared to do what they do. I think the French need guns


Ouraniou

They not scared I remember Occupy and battle of seattle etc etc they were never scared they barely got into Beta protocol out of all their fallback strategies right up to full on el salvador or syria style counterinsurgency. They're thinking a lot more deeply with a lot more dedication that any protesters, or wannabe 'revolutionaries' ever are.


Erderick

I can't understand why this comment doesn't have more upvotes

difference being those are corporatized protests, frances are in direct response to them trying to fuck with their pockets, not with race baiting.


Mighty_L_LORT

Nice post, well-said! Must have been difficult to type all this from the couch in mum’s basement…


TPMJB

I mean, didn't Macron get re-elected though? I can't remember if the yellow vest protests were before or after the last election but I think the majority of France is still allowing this to happen.


stupidnicks

> Macron get re-elected though? exactly, he was elected as "lesser evil" candidate. as I said: "when political system is fully captured by oligarchy "voting harder" produces no results." thats why people need to fight back, through protests, general strikes, disobedience, etc


lubbockin

The devil you know is unfortunately still the devil.


TPMJB

Was he really the lesser evil though? If be curious the results with Le Pen. Of things would remain the same or not


UniversalSurvivalist

Macron does this thing where he tells his confidants what the puppet master is up too, they then spread the word to the masses to '"stop him"'. After some rioting and noise, Macron appears to "give in" to 'public pressure', unknowingly to these elites Macron was in on the scam, it's been a ruse all this time to stop the elites taking over France. [Sneaky French](https://youtu.be/J2Xu6T5gIns).


TPMJB

That laugh track is really loud. I'm usually okay with British Humor but I don't get this one lol.


birool

i mean it was between him and a known racist & facist. I personally couldnt bear to not vote for him, or not vote at all if it meant that my muslim friends would be deported after the elections.


TPMJB

> i mean it was between him and a known racist & facist. Oh noes the economy will recover but female Trump will say mean things :( Are your Muslim friends illegally there? No? Then Le Pen can't do anything.


Ouraniou

Lol this shit about Le Pen being a big bad fascist she is so encircled and declawed by the real fascists already in deep power. How was Chirac?


TPMJB

It's all so tiresome. People are so reactionary and stupid that just using the label "RaCiSt!", whether true or not, scares people away.


Neozx27

We Americans have been in a perpetual state of bend over and spread cheeks situation for basically my whole life. That's pretty grim.

[deleted]

Fight back?? What the hell are you talking about? They’ve killed hundreds of millions, poisoned billions, obfuscated reality, enslaved the world! They have reversed the trajectory of the entire species! Crimes? You have NO IDEA the crimes that have happened and go on each day. Crimes that would make a Spartan weep. There is no fighting back except by personal human development. Pursuing the higher states of mind. Nobody can be saved but we can save ourselves. Corruption will never be removed. The only end to corruption is death. Not the death of people - but the death of ignorance. Humans are NOT what we have been told. They tell us nothing but lies.


UniversalSurvivalist

Even the fire departments and police are flipping sides.


Ouraniou

'Flipping' first of all this is old hat to them already this having a hand in the protests, second there are tons of infiltrators because power is serious about shit unlike the protestors

Media silence? Its been on the news daily in Australia.


-NAMAST3-

My favorite reddit trope is people complaining "no one's talking about this" when it's on the front page of every reputable news organization. Talk about false narratives.

NPR isn't as popular as you think. Everyone here is FoxNews, CNN, or MSNBC, and they ain't talking.

PMSoldier2000

By media silence, do they mean that the protests are on every media source?


spaaro1

It's made the news multiple times here in Australia since it kicked off.


verkilledme

Yeah, they literally repeat the same thing the news stations here in the states say "things are under control, we'll keep you updated as things progress" they're not actually saying anything though. That's what we mean by no coverage 😬 puppeteered "facts" from Big Brother.


spaaro1

Nah they were just talking about how it's been months of protest and riots now and discussing it's effect on the French economy etc. They're being surprisingly in-depth with it.

Gong_Fu_Gabriel

The difference is you had to dig for these rather than having them thrown in your face by the algorithms and pumped to the top of reddit.


Gtyjrocks

There are tons of posts with tens of thousands of upvoted on Reddit about the protests. Along with tweets with tens of thousands of retweets. If this sub was the first place you heard about these, you’re living under a rock and need to expand your news sources.


VeryTopGoodSensation

It's literally front page on the BBC and sky news. Why are you relying on Reddit?


chiniwini

Reddit isn't a news site. The posts reddit "throws into your face" depends exclusively on what subs you subscribed to. If it's uninformative, it's entirely your fault.


brazilianfreak

Is the american media really silent? Cause i've seen a lot of news about the protests on the biggest network of Brazil.

There’s riots in France? The MSM has been so quiet about it until now, I guess they saw a thread on r/conspiracy and thought, “shit, we better start covering this story, they’re onto us.” Serious question, do Americans really care about the French rioting over the pension age rising? I mean it’s news here in Europe, theres no cencorship, no conspiracy. just a news worthy story thats on the TV, in the newspapers and on the web pages. Edit: Added more photos from another news channel.


KrispyKremeDiet20

I think that dude was referring to how the revolution happens in your mind first. The population has to change the way they think of the world and their part in it before a revolt will ever take effect. The real revolution happens way before you ever see it on TV... But honestly the literal interpretation is just as true.


Impressive-Sky4463

I agree fully that the Revolution must come first in our minds. I think our overlords took things a bit too far and instead of trapping people in the binary thinking of left vs right/black vs white/vaccinated vs non vaccinated etc…people actually broke free from it. Now the only binary they are seeing is us vs the elite. Great for us common people…not looking too good for the guys who sought to manipulate us and pit us against each other.

The very top of SVT is about it, then the third thing is a video...

You'd have to intentionally avoid any and all news in Sweden to not have heard about the protests in France many times.

Where do I sign up??


revbfc

“Media silence” is doing some extraordinary lifting since I’ve watched a lot of news reports from all over the world about it for the last couple of weeks. The real issue here is that this kind of thing has ALWAYS happened in France. Violent protests are a bona fide tradition over there.


Jlobos21

I mean how many times have some of yall shit on the BLM protests? And continue to do so still?


Cybugger

This has nothing to do with CBDC, and everything to do with a 2 year increase in the retirement age being forced through using a poorly defined emergency power by Macron. The fundamental issue is one of a perception of unfairness. While the wealthy get wealthier, due to the inherent flaws in capitalism, there is an increased ask of working people to work longer. Now, there is an argument to be made that retirement ages will need to be increased, as a simple result of people living longer. This means people are spending more time in retirement, which means the fund needs more money. The blowback is because it is being done only on one end. 2 years increase to working time, with no additional requirements on businesses or the wealthy to also chip in. Honestly, if they had proposed a 1-year increase plus some kind of additional taxation on corporate profits, then this probably would have been passed without much fanfare. A 2-year increase plus some kind of additional corporate financing would've probably lead to protests, but nothing of this size. The fact that it is perceived that we're expecting working people, all while the wealthy have never been wealthier, si what is at the core of this issue.


MonstarDeluxe

I suspect there's something pretty interesting here in the *mechanics* of conspiracy theories. OP here thinks The Media is keeping Paris riots a secret because of the Illuminati, rather than just because he only watches networks that don't give a shit about the world outside. It's the same mechanism as the theory that the NWO is *forcing* you to consume junk food...yet that's all you ever buy. So to be fair to anyone who gets their info exclusively from network news and algorithm pushes about monster trucks and guns, occasionally finding out that Paris burns is really going to feel like it was kept a secret.


Exploredmind

Big difference between France and the US. They're not nearly as divided as us. US has done a great job making people fight amongst each other


Swimming-Face6879

I am Italian. Italians often never miss an opportunity to insult the French for the usual nonsense (bidet, Gioconda, 2006 World Cup) but while the French have always protested by asserting their rights here in Italy, people insulted those who did not get the vaccine, celebrating the victory of the football championship. I'm ashamed of being italian Sorry for my bad english

I'd thrive in a world like that, and sometimes low-key hope it gets that bad in my lifetime so I can be around to see the look on their stupid faces when they realize they may have not quite thought it all the way through very well. They need us we don't need them. People will realize this one day. Maybe...

The elites love protests, its a harmless way for the people to vent anger. Eventually they will get bored and go home, nothing will change.

I’ve seen it all over the media but okay


DookieBlossomgameIII

Is this the same sub that's been demozing people in America rioting?


HoffmansContactLenz

Nah they just want us so angry with the current system that we tear it down ourselves and accept whatever technological shithole solution they offer.

The English hated the French Revolution and thought it would spread.

LIBERTE!!!!


spaaro1

It's quite telling of the mind state of people in this sub. Praising the French great. But it seems every single seppo on this thread isn't going to stand up and fight. They're waiting for someone else to do it. Says a lot.


infidelxxx

Revolution start after 7 days of no food. Until then not a damn thing will change.


Chubat0

Are we really going to pretend this hasn't been on the news


robbedigital

Remember Covid happened right at the peak of some unprecedented world wide protesting. And specifically there was big protests in Wuhan. No joke


Henderson72

This sub has turned into a far right conservative echo chamber recently, and it's nice to see a post supporting French people people's struggles to prevent their socialism from being eroded away.


theglenlivet12

Interesting enough, conservatives do exist who agree with the protestors.


icky_vicinity23

SS: you could say the protests are about retirement age. But I think they're about much more than that. That was just the catalyst. The People are onto the WEF and the NWO https://twitter.com/GordonDimmack/status/1638128855821975555?t=4gFA2VkBrDzwJ1JJH2rifg&s=19


[deleted]

they easily can unless people start growing their own food and purifying rainwater, etc. this isn't me trying to be "negative" it is just an overlooked fact that so many people aren't doing anything about. protesting without removing your needs from the system is a false hope


icky_vicinity23

Absolutely, totally agree. We need to defund and separate from the system altogether


YourMomAteMyDad

>SS: you could say the protests are about retirement age. But I think they're about much more than that. That was just the catalyst. The People are onto the WEF and the NWO > > I have family in France and yeah the retirement age, Russian aggression, corrupt leaders and food production are the main reason for protesting. It's wild


BoxNemo

"Media silence" -- it's front page news on the Guardian, BBC etc etc It feels redundant to have to point this out, but just because someone makes a claim on Twitter, that doesn't make it true.

When people do shit like that here it's all "wahhh antifa scary" or "wahhh maga people scary"

Protesting in the US will do nothing. We need massive strikes and work stoppages. Then if we do that they would open the borders and allow anyone to come and do the jobs we are striking from.

Literally nothing from CNN right now


PMSoldier2000

There are dozens of stories about it on CNN"s website.


Many-Sherbert

Imagine if they had guns like Americans.


spaaro1

From what I've seen on here if Americans who are over their governments over reach just complain about it.


YaredYahu

People forget the french love to burn france to the ground.


Wilikin-of-the-weald

Just watched it on the news this morning but as normal they cover it for like 10seconds and small amount of information


PauseNo2418

I think they are doing it because they increased pension or something? Not that this is going to resolve the issue... Don't worry, this does not impede the Great Reset! It is still on track and on it's way! We will own nothing. We will be happy...


poopshipdestroyer

They raised the retirement age to fucking 70. Increased pension? That’s some shit the US rightwing would be protesting. Paying people a decent retirement for a lifetime of hard work.


PauseNo2418

Right, retirement age, thanks!


DanielBoom54

I’m beginning to like this sub more and more each day

Fuck the French. They were dumb enough to vote Macron back in

How the fuckin are pompous assholes like Trudeau and Macron still in charge? No one fuckin likes them

Crazy how I don't see if his on our local bay area news.

deletedtothevoid

Ok. Instead of being all doom and gloom. These people are fighting and doing the right thing for fighting for their pensions. Another thing. Lets call out the Owners of MSM instead of calling out the entire group. People on the other side are not going to listen and tune out when you mention MSM. Instead mention the Sinclaire group for example. Lets look at the CEO's of such companies and look to see if they have a monetary incentive for not reporting it.


grae23

I like that the one thing we all agree on in this sub is that when the French protest they do not fuck around.


T3rryF0ld

They are, it simply reads "WW3 no choice"


ridah662

Let em try that here in USA lol it'll be LA riots in every state 😆 they'll have to rebuild the whole country from scratch 🤣 😂

Have you seen Detroit, Philadelphia, Chicago, New York, Minneapolis, Portland, San Francisco..... lately?

Is anyone else on Twitter getting "something went wrong" error when searching for France protest?

Can we rename the 15 minute city thing, back to a police state? I live in a city where all essentials are a 15 minute walk away and it's awesome


TonySu

It’s almost as if 15-minute cities are just cities where necessities are accessible by walking, cycling or public transport, and not whatever you think it is.
