They are picketing, they are barricading, and occasionally they are rioting. They do not like the tax. So what is all that jazz about the RW?


Just pointing out that our RW never bothers to ask WHY things happen. Its how they escape blame for the disaster that is the MidEast Never Ending War or Der Trumper's maladministration.

 

In this case, most French support the Paris Accords to collectively work to halt Global Warming, an "inconvenient Truth" GOPers will never accept because it came from Al Gore who won the election in Florida and the rest of the Nation but lost it 5-4 in the Fascist SCOTUS.

 

What the French object to is the mere APPEARANCE that somehow the rich will not be paying their fair share. This total rejection of Republican Dogma is why GOPers trash anything French - they realize if their base actually looks at how things are going in France (or any other EU COUNTRY), they will realize the Republican engineered income redistribution that is destroying our middle class CAN BE REVERSED. Very bad for the GOPerLords who rely on their "base" remaining blissfully uninformed as their pockets are being picked clean.

The discontent with Macron stems from the public's belief he is changing the laws to favor the wealthy.

 

In America, this behavior from a ToadPOTUS results in cheers from his lofo base

 

But in France, the poor are much better educated than the average Trumpette, so the GOPerLords are firing up their Propaganda Ministry to distract their dupes from reality by getting them to focus on how the people lil donny doesn't like are not liked by others as well.

 

The GOPerLords need such distractions if they are to succeed in destroying PPACA, Social Security and Medicare to protect the Taxscams that are redistributing all the income from the middle class to the top of the 1%. They won't be able to pull that off if their lofo base wakes up to what they're actually doing.


Reagan and Trump supposedly helped the rich by lowering taxes on everyone. Macon supposedly helps the rich by raising taxes on everyone who owns a car. Raise/lower - it doesn't make sense except to one who sees everything through a resentment of the "haves".

Once again, we are treated to an overly lengthy treatise from the debunked and discredited source, THE FEDERALIST.

 

Remember folks, THE FEDERALIST is the media outlet founded by Ben Domenech because he couldn't work anywhere else. His reputation for being a habitual plagiarizer was well known as he plagiarized from many publications such as The Washington Post and The New Yorker.

 

THE FEDERALIST also printed an article and thus, agreed with its thesis, that Roy Moore's choice of CHILD MOLESTATION was reasonable IF YOU WANT TO RAISE A LARGE FAMILY.

 

Nothing printed by this debunked and discredited source should be believed.

 

 Do you also have a copy&paste dealing with Reuters and the BBC?

This seems to be a strange subject to start this evening. Is the average American really going to know enough about France and this subject to comment on what one writer  in France thinks. Lets look at what happened in the US today. They were saying on TV this evening that this was the worse Thursday in Trump run as President. With Cohen telling what he did that lead to cancelling the Russia meeting, and South Korea meeting so far, the German raid on one of its biggest banks looking into money laundering which involves Trump and one of his Cabinet members, plus proof from Cohen & Sader that Trump lied, and is comprised on at least one item, plus what else does Putin have on him. The far right leaders are putting out all kinds of stories for the enablers to get out into the web for people to talk about to keep them from the main story. Trump and what does Muller know? To me that looks like what is going on here.


I must admit - I am unable to draw the connection between Germany, the Cabinet, Mueller, Cohen&Sader, SK, and enablers and global warming.

I included the Bio for the man that wrote this article, are you suggesting he did not write it?  Then I am sure you will have no problem offering some proof of your allegation.  If not why are you making stuff up just in order to protest a subject you do not like.  

 

By the way, maybe you could post your bio to illustrate why your "Opinion" should have any bearing on the topic.

 

Here is another copy of his Bio, how does yours compare?

 

 

Bonicelli served in the George W. Bush administration. His career includes a presidential appointment with Senate confirmation as assistant administrator at the U.S. Agency for International Development; as a professional staff member of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives; and as a delegate to the United Nations General Assembly. He holds a PhD in political science from the University of Tennessee.
