The French "yellow vest" protests have ignited a debate on the left in the U.S. over how to avoid a similar backlash if Democrats get the chance to enact new environmental laws.


I've been wondering this for a while. The US seems ripe for this. We've seen all kinds of movements, BLM, Metoo, clashes about immigration, tons of people wondering about another civil war.

It seems we are at a boiling point concerning many different social matters. I don't know how it would play out.

I do not want this, but I know many that actually look forward to the day the US implodes on itself.

50% of Americans don't even bother to vote.

The remainder has a range that goes from passive to extreme as far as ideology. The extreme are marginal comparatively.

I doubt it.

I could see it happening, but then being co-opted by either dems or repubs.

Just like any other grass-root movement, the major party absorbs it, neutralizes it, negates it.


Our government is a giant "blob".

I don't see a civil war occurring between the people any time soon, but the people vs Government became a starch reality with the upset of electing Trump. It was a pure act of disobedience to Washington and the swamp for this outsider to be elected. The wheels of progress slowly churn forward, but the swamp fears the day. Think of those that were ousted or met early retirement the past two years. These were plea bargains and not an anomaly where these congressmen typically take their appointment for life.

We need term limits for Congress no more should the corrupt dinosaurs run Washington.

The "Yellow Jackets" was a much more fitting name for these guys....

If Americans do this we'll need a better identifier.....

NO, not a chance.

we almost had it with the teaparty, but they were called racist by the left

then we had occupy and they were called dirty commie hippies by the right.

if we tried it now it would end in civil war, the left would be too bust calling everyone racists/russians and the right would be too busy calling the left commies/globalist etc etc until we start shooting each other

divide and conquer is almost fool proof.

no because the yellow vest are right and left wing coming together to throw the corrupt power structure out of their country

in the US both sides of the equation will take hard line stances over a single ridiculous issue and allow the corrupt power structure to destroy our country rather than realize the establishment is a bigger problem than the right or left

it's really sad

How about the digital camo? That what the patriots I know have a closet of. They made an oath and plan to uphold it. They all have closets full of them from the many years they protected our land.

The Yellow Vest movement in the US is what elected President Trump.

During the American Revolution, the active forces in the field against the King's tyranny never amounted to more than 3% of the colonists.

all it takes is 3%

I'm thinking this is why the President told everyone to prepare a couple months ago. www.ready.gov...

What about Eagle Wings?

Or would animal rights people find that offensive?

I am sure there are enough disenchanted Americans to come together, burn a few cars and shops, cause mayhem. Spray some graffiti.

The problem with violent protest is that public support evaporates quickly. They may support the grievance (whether that is), but they don't like the mayhem. When you lose public support you end up being an arse. Nobody likes an arse.

.

You didn't mention The French, Spanish and Dutch military who fought in The American Revolution.

When you have those onboard i suppose 3% of The Colonists is enough.
