I’ve been saying for a long time that European “leaders” like Macron and Merkel are at best puppets of the elite and probably outright traitors against the nations they are supposed to represent. I think they hate the IDEA of NATIONS, and do everything they can to destroy cultures and values and customs and borders and peoples in favor of collapsing them into a European Union and a One World Government.
The contempt for their own people is so bad, even other European leaders see it. In this article at Zerohedge.com “Italy’s Interior Minister Matteo Salvini and his coalition partner have announced their support for France’s Yellow Vest movement, accusing French President Emmanuel Macron of being “against his people.”
“Macron’s tough stance on the Yellow Vest movement has backfired, as French authorities struggle to maintain order.
What began as a grassroots rebellion against diesel taxes and the high cost of living has morphed into something more perilous for Macron – an assault on his presidency and French institutions.
The anti-government protesters on Saturday used a forklift truck to force their way into a government ministry compound, torched cars near the Champs Elysees and in one violent skirmish on a bridge over the Seine punched and kicked riot police officers to the ground. –The Globe and Mail
Macron tweeted over the weekend “Once again, the Republic was attacked with extreme violence – its guardians, its representatives, its symbols.”
“Government spokesman Benjamin Griveaux said on Friday that the government would not cease its efforts to reshape the economy, and branded protesters agitators seeking to overthrow the Macron administration. Twenty-four hours later, Griveaux was fleeing out of the back door of his office as protesters invaded the courtyard and destroyed several cars.
“It wasn’t me who was attacked,” he said later. “It was the Republic.”
Meanwhile, the “Republic” is crushing its citizens under the weight of the highest taxes in the world – which has fueled unrest and anger, particularly among France’s blue-collar workers whose incomes have been squeezed by a bevy of government taxes.
It was this anger that culminated in the Yellow Vest movement, which began with blocking roads, occupying highway tollbooths – and eventually morphing into violent protests across the entire country (and beyond).”
Wikipedia has a list of dozens of countries (mostly in Europe and the Middle East) in which “Yellow Vest” demonstrations are gaining momentum.
We haven’t even seen a real crisis like an economic collapse yet. Imagine the social unrest that could happen if an economic depression, or a major terrorist event, or a major ethnic attack, or a military attack really rocked people’s minds to resist the path their government is taking them down… Nostradamus’ prophecies about Europe’s near future (he concentrated on the years up to 2028) give little cause for optimism.
