As the yellow vests movement is spreading through Europe protests have been announced in Brussels (Belgium), Amsterdam and Rotterdam (The Netherlands), Stockholm (Sweden), Paris and several German cities.

Looks like it is spreading.  From what I've read this has to do with the UN immigration agreement.  We already know Trump won't sign it.

Is it a matter of time, then, that the "workers" start marching through and chewing up the moslem neighborhoods?

Are they really chanting "We want Trump?" If so, this could possibly be the greatest troll material any antagonist par excellence could ever have imagined to have at his disposal.

Hey sorry, I'm not in Paris right now - I'm actually spending the next few months in Estonia (though I'm leaving to spend Christmas with my family in a few weeks).

Yesterday, a friend of mine's street got smashed up, but that's normal. If there's a protest in France, people come out to break other people's stuff. A few of my friends live near the the main protest areas (les champs élysées, la place de la république, la place de l'étoile), apparently the police were really out in force yesterday compared to last weekend.

It's really just a bunch of lower and middle class people who are unhappy with a whole lot, as they should be because so much is wrong with France. Pretty much everyone I know that went out for manif pour tous has gone out for the gilets jaunes protests. With the notable exception of people that are really image conscious. Yeah some people from bastion social, génération identité, action française, etc are there... and?

Even if the protests continue, Macron will probably be saved by Christmas. The whole thing is really susceptible to fatigue. Lots of the protesters (in Paris, anyway) are coming from all over France, and that's just not a trip people can make every weekend - especially people that are in economic difficulty (I've heard some trains were being run for free, but idk if that's really true).

Anyway, regarding that one sentence taken from the Pope's "condemnation" of Action Française. It's important to note that 1) today's organization is, unfortunately, hardly that of Maurras 2) The "condemnation" had a long and complicated background and can hardly be summarized by a sentence long quote.

This is very interesting. Thanks for the report.

Expect phone calls to be made.  Expect Bergoglio to stab the yellow vests in France and La Lega in Italy in the back.

And there you have it: supporting a revolutionary mob of Trotskyists, anarchists, neo-Nazis, pagan revivalists, ethno-nationalists and racialists, bankrolled by God-knows-who, over the apparent Pope.

I find the condemnation by Pius XI of Action Francaise to be just as applicable to Civitas, who have joined the fray , and all the trad-fetishist “Catholics” who side with them:

In substance, there is, in these manifestations, traces of a rebirth of Paganism, to which is linked the Naturalism that these authors have placed, unconsciously, we believe, as so many of their contemporaries, in the public schooling of this modern and secular school, poisoner of youth, against which they themselves fight often so ardently.

I know of no more pertinent example testifying to the vanity of political revolution than that of the Messiah himself, who, being expected by the Hebrew ethno-nationalists of his own day to violently overthrow “oppressive” and “foreign” Roman rule, not only did nothing of the kind but told them to “render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s”. To quote Voltaire, apropos French mobs: “I would rather obey a fine lion, much stronger than myself, than two hundred rats of my own species.”

Lol I used to think this guy was a good poster, embarrassing  :-[  :-[

More riots in France, and the movement is spreading throughout Europe, with demonstrations in Brussels and Holland also last weekend.

There was a protest of the UN pact outside of Canadian parliament this weekend by people hopping on the Gilets Jeunes bandwagon here as well. Supposedly Antifa showed up and promptly got carted off by the police. Those people really are the worst slime on the planet.

Mobilizing 80,000 heavily armed "security forces" is more like hard totalitarianism, justified, of course, by a fatuous claim of defending "the social order," i.e. the complete domination of elites.

But the French elites are discovering the disconcerting reality that it's impossible to defend every traffic-speed camera, every bank, etc. from sabotage.

Yellow vests knock out 60% of all speed cameras in France

The class analysis of the current crisis is now coming into focus: a reversal of polarity from the 1968 general strike of elite students and labor unions. Fifty years ago, the students of the elite Paris universities garnered the support of the labor unions and this combined force nearly toppled the government with a general strike.

Now, students of the elite Paris universities are complicit supporters of the technocrat elite, as the most fervent hope of most of these students is to nail down a position in the technocrat elite threatened by the yellow vest dissenters.

The labor unions are also missing in action, as they are now adjuncts of the ruling elites, feeding at the same trough of tax revenues and corporate globalization-financialization profits.

The gilets jaunes / yellow vests are a working class revolt against the elites and those who identify with the elites: the fake-progressive hipsters, the aspiring technocrats and the comfortably secure state unions, all of whom are now on the elite side of the barricades.

The Paris elites and their enablers may find that the next general strike won't immobilize Paris, it will strangle Paris from the periphery. The unions which were on the democratic side of the barricades 50 years ago may find their identification with the ruling elite challenged, and they'll be forced to either side with the authentic working class (yellow vests) in a general strike or throw their support behind the undemocratic technocrat elites that run France for their own benefit.

The coming general strike may not echo 1968: rather than a grand confrontation that invites the elites' brutal paramilitary suppression, the working class dissenters may wage a guerrilla / asymmetric warfare campaign of sabotage and fleeting demonstrations that exhausts the paramilitary "security forces" and increases the political and financial costs of the elites' suppression.

The fake-progressive hipsters claiming to be anti-fascist are themselves the anti-working class fascists, and they're finally being called out on their self-serving hypocrisy.

"On Tuesday, the person picked to lead the country's planned "great debate" on the issues resigned over her €14,666 monthly salary (£13,200; $16,800)" which is $200,000 annually, roughly seven or eight times the average worker's salary.

That's the class division in a nutshell. The fake-progressive technocrats are skimming $200,000 a year to defend an indefensible undemocratic neofeudal system of exploitation that handsomely benefits the few at the expense of the many.

The seer Alois Irlmair (died 1958) predicted: The city with the steel tower [Paris] will be set on fire by its inhabitants and will be leveled to the ground.
