Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

All working people in the EU are being battered by the EU Central Bank. Macron is battering protesting yellow vests with a heavily weaponized police force while blaming yellow vests for the violence. Macron has proposed legislation which makes all demonstrations illegal and plan to make demonstrating incompatible with holding a job. In France, the League for the Rights of Man and more than 50 other civil liberties groups, religious associations, trade unions, civic associations and far-left parties have just called for a massive national demonstration for the right to demonstrate, along with the Yellow Vests this Saturday, April 13. I hope it will be massive. All newspapers in France pretend the police are harmless and the yellow vests are a threat to public peace. The United States doesn't want to give Americans any ideas and downplays the significance of these protests.

Nothing will change for the better without mass demonstrations. We've all heard of the French Revolution. Our own labor revolution has never been portrayed as honestly. With help from the New Deal it reversed the natural mass poverty bred by Capitalism and created the American Middle Class. We won't know anytime soon how effective today's demonstrations have been.

This would going on here and would have started long ago of the police wouldn't kill people because reasons and our friends and neighbors would say "Ho hum, it's tragic, but they were asking for it. It's bad that it happened, but they did have a cell phone. One thing you should never do when dealing with a cop is be alive. It was legal and justified..."
