It isn’t America, they have different rules there, so it is very acceptable in France.

It's not that simple, the migrant issue is only the tip of the iceberg, and it's only a minority of the population that feel that way about the migrants, the widening gap between rich and poor is the main driving force,the working class are fed up just scraping by, in fact you Americans could learn a thing or 2 about how to protest an out of control government that lines it's own pockets at the expense of the people.


Wait, France wants a subsistence society and they can’t afford it anymore, so they pinch more in taxes and you say it is about rich people?

You people vote that crap in so enjoy.😈




Oh I see you think the poor people are to blame..

Not surprised the citizens of Paris have had enough. So much been going on over the last 10 years or so and Macron hasn't fixed the problems or listended to the people.




mmanuel Macron has ordered a swimming pool to be built in the grounds of the French president’s Riviera retreat to avoid prying paparazzi, sparking opposition claims he is dishing himself perks at the expense of the poor.

Mr Macron, 40, has already let it be known that he intends to holiday at the Brégançon fort, a 17th-century fortress overlooking the Mediterranean. Used by Charles de Gaulle and successive presidents, it had fallen out of favour of late - notably because its private beach is easy prey for paparazzi from the sea.

Mr Macron, who wants to turn Brégançon into a French Camp David for summer meetings with foreign dignitaries, had already ordered the fort to be upholstered with a new kitchen.

However, the opposition slammed the move as insensitive at time when Mr Macron’s government is reducing housing allowance for the poor and days after he was filmed complaining about the “crazy amounts of dosh” France pumps into welfare benefits that trap some people in a cycle of poverty.

Regularly forced to deny claims is “the president of the rich”, Mr Macron, 40, came under fire last week over reports the Elysée had spent around €500,000 on new crockery for the presidential palace. He came in for yet more flak over reports he had taken a costly private Falcon jet to travel just 110 km.

Voters are to blame, 65% of Frances GNP goes into fueling their heavy socialism base government.

Now they do not have enough tax coming in, so what do you want to do?

This is what irony looks like, i am sure Russia's Putin must be laughing at this to. And why is he laughing? remember when the Americans organized those so called protests agaisnt Putin in Russia? using Liberals, Communists to protest agaisnt Putin's government?

Or how the Mainstream News Media and their fake punts declared Putin as dictator for stopping the beloved, peaceful protestors in Moscow? Remember when the media called the Rioters in Kiev Peaceful protestors?


Well it seems the Mainstream News Media are rather AWOL on Macron's actions towards the protestors.

Well in most cases the workers do not pick the management. In this case it seems they voted on their style of democracy and they do not like how it plays out.

Free everything at zero cost is such a great platform

I'm sure that it has something to do with the intelligence of some Eastern countries...they are very likely to try to have their profit from this
