Aux Barricades Citoyens, Vive La Revolution!

Marianne leading citizens to the barricades (Picture: frenchmoments )
The original painting, Liberty leading the people, by Eugene Delacroix is displayed in the Louvre museum, Paris. I don’t know how the goddess of Liberty came by the name Marianne in French folklore but Marianne embodies the spirit of France and is a hugely significant symbol of French democracy.

I have reported regularly in my news blog, The Daily Stirrer, on the Yellow Vests protests against cost of living increases caused by green policies, high taxes and and general civil unrest due to the disilluionment of citizens with the government of French president Emmanuel Macron. The Yellow Vests have been mostly low key, with occasional outbursts of violent outrage, but the latest protest which is mainly about Macron’s planned pension and retirement reforms, which will force French people to work longer and drive many less well – off retirees into penury according to the protests leaders, have taken the tensions between government and people to a higher and more dangerous level. The general strike, which has hit public transport in France particularly hard, started in early December, held through the Christmas period and appears to be gathering momentum rather than weakening.

The French, as a people, have always had a strongly anarchic streak and tend to take you the streets to protest at the most trivial annoyances. Such protests are usually concluded by noon however, when the entire nation stops what it is doing to enjoy a good luch, and a glass or three of wine or beer, after which they all make friends again and go home.

This time however, the demonstrations and protests fel rather different and darker than the usual light hearted letting off of steam by waving placards, singing revolutionary songs and torching a few cars, a kind of Gallic ritual intended to remind politicians who get above themselves that “we are many, you are few.” After a few million dollars or Eurosworth of damage has been done the government would usually cave in and give the demonstrators most of what they were demanding.

French unions are not as militant as their British counterparts nor as well organised as the Germans is not highly unionized, but their strength in France lies in the hold they have onm the public sector, which includes passenger transport by road, rail and air, seaports, food distribution, education and healthcare. Public sector unions are traditionally belligerent, with roots in 1930’s communism or socialism, and along with trade organisations such as the Fermers Association, have a stranglehold on key sectors of the economy.

What makes the current protests a bigger threat is that the boy President, Emmanuel Macron has managed to antagonise just about every interest group in the country. A former investment banker, Marcon has all the arrogance associated with that profession combined with the small mindedness off a bean counter. And that abrasive combination does dot play well to the anarchistic attitude of many French people. The entire country appears opposed to President Emanuel Macron’s plans to modernize the nation’s crazy-quilt pension regulations that confer special privileges on favored groups of workers. Rail workers, for example, a particularly pampered bunch, can retire with close to full pay while in their 40’s. Ballet dancers enjoy similar benefits. Average workers can retire at 62. Macron wants to change retirement to 64, citing the longer life-span of today’s workers, and to consolidate the nation’s 42 separate retirement plans. This does not seem unreasonable when you consider Britain’s retirement age is 66 years.

However France’s labor movement is up in arms, responding with more outrage and fury than it did when the Germans invaded in 1940 when the habit of clocking off at noon for a long lunch earned them the sobriquet of ‘Cheese – eating surrender monkeys,’ from US President George W Bush after the French government of the day refused to support one of his wars.

In the 1940s of course, orinary French people thought there would be little difference between being governed by a bunch of intellectual socialists who had a penchant for sitting around discussing impenetrable philosophical propositions and a bunch of National Socialists with a collective penchant for wearing extremely shiny boots. They have not forgotten how wrong they were on that one and are not going to let Macron create a replical of the collaborationist Vichy government with the higher authority this time being a bureaucratic dictatorship in Brussels.

Macron’s attitude to the general strike is, “I’m the president, you all have to do what I say.” Unless he backs down however, the transport unions will blockade oil refineries and petroleum distribution centers, crippling most road transport just as rail unions have crippled the rail network. These in turn will affect food distribution, emergency services and airports. Ports will also be targeted.

France is heading for industrial warfare between the state and its citizens. Similar strike action and mass demos brought down the government of Gen Charles De Gaulle in 1968, an earthquake that still shakes French society and haunts its leaders. Looming over this local difficulty however is the gigantic, tottering shadow of the European Union. With the main opposition to Marcon coming from Marine Le Pen’s nationalist and anti EU party Rassemblement National, which would certainly follow Britain’s lead and quit the EU if victorious in the next election. Riding on a wave of nationalistic feeling, anti EU parties have come to the fore in Italy, Germany, Poland and Spain, which accounts for all the EU’s large population nations.

Having been a major supporter of political integration for EU member states throughout the eras of its five most recent presidents France has been right alongside Germany in pushing for the creation of a federal European superstate ,(sorry, did you think I was being frivolous when I compared Marcon’s government to the World War 2 collaborators of the Vichy government?) an idea that plays well to the metropolitan elitists and media luvvies in Paris but is about as popular as a fart in a lift with the general public.

France must slash taxes now, or face ongoing civil unrest. According to the French prime minister, this is the main message from an unprecedented three-month “great debate” in the wake of anti-government “yellow vest” protests. Announcing publication of the findings from two million online contributions and 10,000 hours of town hall debates around the country, Edouard Philippe said on Monday there was “huge discontent” in the country. Astronomical levels of taxation was one of the prime concerns, alongside unemployment, immigration, and surrender of national sovereignty to the European Union.

Election UK: So did ‘idiot voters’ get it wrong?

by Tom Chivers for Unherd

In the postmortem examination of Labour’s electoral disaster, the notion of “false consciousness” has been bandied around quite a lot. The accusation is that Labour, blaming the media and the Tories (and sometimes the voters themselves) for deceiving the population into voting against its own interests, is invoking the idea to explain why the workers and lower middle class — whom they think of as their base — didn’t vote for them. “Am I out of touch? No, it’s the voters who are wrong.”

“False consciousness” gets a lot of bad press these days, and you can see why: it’s a foundational concept of Marxist-Leninist communism, originally formulated by Friedrich Engels, and it can easily be seen as a way of blaming the idiot proles for not knowing what’s best for them and voting for the wrong lot. There is something a bit grim about telling working-class people — or black people, or gay people, or women, et cetera — that the only reason they voted the way they did is because they are idiots who got duped.

Amsterdam Gridlocked Again As Dutch Farmers Protest EU Green Laws

The protests against EU globalism and the unofficial appointment of Swedish baby troll Greta Thunberg as head of European environment policy continue to grow and become more disruptive. Last weeken it was France that bore the brunt of citizens anger, today it was Amsterdam and The Netherlands.

In a protest similar to previous ones in Germany and Netherlands, Amsterdam was gridlocked with throusands of farm tractors being driven slowly to disrupt traffic flow in the Dutch capital in a zero-notice strike following the Dutch government voting to pass new, highly unpopular green legislation that will damage the already struggling agricultural and construction sectors.

While the protest was peaceful and good humoured, with Dutch Newspaper De Telegraaf reporting that farmers gave out hot coffee to the police officers on duty in the cold weather, armoured vehicles manned by the Dutch government’s military police were seen deployed at likely flashpoints as the tractors got closer to the parliament buildings. Protests in France against green laws that will be ruinous for farmers and transport businesses have frequenntly become violent.

The protest clearly took the police by surprise, and its planning took place in secret, with organisers reportedly referring to it as a “surprise attack” on Amsterdam.

The “surprise attack” came in response to the government passing an EU law enforcing with draconian penalties strict limits on nitrogen emissions, with similar laws being passed by the democratically elected governments of all European Union member states in response to the diktats of unelected bureaucrats in Brussels on green policies. Farmer’s groups dispute the way emissions are measured and claim their work is not as damaging as governments claim, and regardless, as their protest banners state without farming there can be no food.
The smooth – face pen pushers in their luxurious offices haven’t thought that one through have they?

Particularly supportive of the farmers case is Anti – EU politician Geert Wilders, who while notorious for his opposition to the Islamification of the Netherlands and Europe, is a populist and stands with voters against the European Union. He called the farmers “heroes” Wednesday and said he supported them against the anti-nitrogen “frenzy” that would destroy their livelihoods.

As the government of Poland has today stated its desire to leave the EU it can only be a matter od time before this cultural Marxist attempt to merge the free and democratic member states into a Soviet style federation crumbles.

General Strike brings France To Standstill As Nation Protests Macron Policies

France has been closer to social breakdown than the political establishment in the EU and their mainstream media sock puppets will ever admit since the the gilets jaunes demonstrations at their height nearly torched Paris and other cities. It would be a mistake to think, as television news bulletins and large circulation newspapers have suggested that support fot the protest movement has dwindled or the national mood is any less angry. Last month we reported on protests promted by new, over – zealous restrictions on agriculture imposed by the EU, as thousands of French farmers drove their tractors into Paris and other cities and blocked the main highways.

Today, in responce to calls by unions and activist groups for a nationwide strike, public workers across the country stayed home on Thursday, immobilizing public transit across the country as the first general strike in more than 20 years began.

The main reason for the walkout was President Emmanuel Macron’s pension reforms (not unlike how a planned – then scrapped – gas tax hike sparked the giles jaunes).

On the fist day of the strike, which is planned to last through the weekend, parts of Paris resembled ghost towns during the morning rush hours. Roads were empty, and train stations were deserted, according to the Times.

The biggest industrial action of Macron’s tenure is, so far, outweighting by a huge margin the Yellow Vests protests  in scale: 50% of French teachers are reported to be off work, nine out of ten trains have been cancelled today and eleven of the fourteen lines in the Paris Metro are closed. A total of 245 separate demonstrations have been announced across France as students,  police officers and firefighters, healthcare workers and others joining the action. Striking ground staff at Air France forced numerous flight cancellations, leaving thousands of travelers stranded. Air France cancelled 30% of its domestic flights and 10% of international short- and medium-haul flights on Thursday, RT reports.

Millions of workers are staying home.

In Paris, some commuters and shoppers resorted to bikes, skateboards or walking in the bitter cold as buses and underground trains failed to run. Some joked that the strike had made Paris into a much more ‘eco-friendly’ city. This  way of looking at the situation must have appealed to thousands of Extinction Rebellion activists and other environmentalist groups who took the opportunity to link their the climate action agenda to the protests.

The strike is expected to continue until Monday as the unions and Macron butt heads over the controversial pension reform proposals. Paris police are deploying 6,000 riot police to do battle with demonstrators who have decided to take their yellow vests out of the closet and back into action.

Many of the French capital’s most popular tourist spots were forced to shut their doors because of the strikes. The Eiffel Tower and the Orsay museum did not open on Thursday, while the large parts of The Louvre, the Pompidou Center and other museums were mostly closed with only the most popular exhibits accessible.

Outside the busy Gare du Nord railway station taxis lined up with their green lights on, struggling to find customers in the deserted streets.

Of more immediate concern for Macron and his beleagured government is the fact that dozens of gilet jaunes protesters are blocking the nations major fuel terminals in the south and near the city of Orleans, leaving more than 200 petrol stations without fuel on Thursday, while another 400 report they will run out on Friday. If that action persists the country could be at a standstill by the end of next week. These blockades show the protesters have a coherent strategy which could bring the country to its knees and force Macron out of office or at least into a humiliating climb down. No matter how many times political leaders wax lyrical about the wonders of clean, green, sustainable energy, society still needs oil,  in spite what the Swedeish Baby Troll Greta Thunberg and her supporters wish for.

Salvini Accuses Leftist Govt of Giving Away Italian Sovereignty to EU


Italian Prime Minister Guiseppe Conte, aonter European leader prepared to betray his country

Matteo Salvini leader of the hugely popular Populist League (Lega) party, which, despite having a democratic mandate, was excluded from the government of Italy by a stitch up enigineered by the Euronazi EU Commission in Brussels, has accused Giuseppe Conte the Italian prime minister apponted by the EU, of handing over Italian sovereignty to the European Union bureaucrats without parliamentary approval with changes to an EU bailout fund.

Changes the European Stability Mechanism (ESM), a fund that gives emergency loans to countries and banks, has been criticized by Salvini and his colleagues in League, who argue that the new system could force Italy to restructure its massive debt in a way that would have the subsequent negative effect of preventing the heavily indebted nation from leavthe Euro single currency, according to a report from Reuters. We should remember that it was the EU’s forcing Italy to join the single currency system that is responsible for most of Italy’s current economic woes.

On Friday (29 Nov,) Salvini said that the reform was a danger for Italian sovereignty and that, as was the case with the creation of the single currency system, the beneficiary would be Germany, which has banks in crisis, such as Deutschebank which recently laid off a large section of its workforce after losing billions of euros this year. The future of Deutschebank is still in doubt as the bank was forced by the EU to buy €€€billions of negative performing bonds from the EU’s basket case economies to fund previous bail outs.

Salvini, who along with his party becomes more popular with Italian voters as a result of every EU power grab, went as far as to address Italian President Sergio Mattarella directly, stating that if Prime Minister Conte signs the treaty to go ahead with the reform “it would sanction a sale of unbalanced national sovereignty.”

We expect the collapse of the Brussels appointed, pro Brussels government in Rome imminently.

Do Conservatives Go Too Far In Demonizing Communism

As the UK General Election campaign starts to turn nasty, more and more people are trying to excuse the anti – Semitism and the authoritarianism of the Jew – hating communists who have hijacked the Labour Party. They play down the fact that party leader Jeremy Corbyn is a Trotskyite who in true Bolshevik tradition has abandoned his principles for the sake of power, (he has been a lifelong opponent of British membership of the European Union and was at least a supporter of a kind of democracy.) When it came to a choice between honouring the result of a democratic referendum or aligning himself with the advocates of global government, high taxation and uncontrolled immigration however, he chose to cling to power.

Corbyn’s de fact number 2, the Stalinist thug John McDonnell has never made any secret of the fact that he favours turning the EU into a kind of EUSSR, with Britain reduced to the status of a province.

In spite of this young (and some not so young but certifably insane,) lefties cling to the belief that life in the old Soviet Union, its satellite states in Europe and Asia, in Communist China, Viet Nam and North Korea, and in the outlying farmstead of communism, Cuba, was all beer and skittles.

In my almost 20 years as a blogger and web content creator I have corresponded with many people from Russia, the former Yugoslavian states, Romania, Poland and Hungary who experienced life under communism (or socialism as communist tyrants like to call it. And none have had a good word to say about it.

In fact most have been so vitriolic about communism / socialism that I believe conservatives and nationalists in Britain, the USA, the European Union, Canada and Australia are actually too moderate when talking about Communism. I don’t know if this is because they have not read enough about the history of Soviet Russia, Red China, Eastern Europe, Viet Nam, North Korea and the other nations that became slave states under socialist dictatorships or just trying to avoid hate attacks from the left-leaning university brainwashed millennials who fall for the ols “ah but none of those were proper socialism,” excuse but what they usually say is not even close to the whole truth.

Also, please don’t make the mistake of confusing communism with a welfare state: while there are states with a strong welfare component, high taxes, and more government control, most of these are social democracies, capitalistic economies ruled by democratic principles.

Communism was never about welfare: yes, people were getting food (though nowhere near enough as is abvious from the numbers who died of starvation or malnutrition related diseases,) and shelter, but they were forced to work until the state decreed age of retirement — which was constantly raised according to that good old National Socialist concept of “useless eaters.” If somebody refused to work on the job that the Party assigned to them, they would go to prison — where they would be put to hard labor, or if the prisons were full or the local kommisar did not like their face they would simply be shot.

Also, the free food and shelter were not subject to personal preferences: every person was given food stamps, stating what they were allowed to buy for the month — and it wasn’t a lot. “Hoarding” food was a major offense, punishable by prison time or death — and “hoarding” meant that you had a food closet at home, not freight containers. China’s communist government passed a law against hoarding food and enforced it so brutally that peasant farmers who laid aside a portion of their grain harvest for next years seed were deemed guilty of hoarding and summarily executed. But those farmers who obeyed the law and handed over all their crop faced long prison sentences in forced labour camps when they had no crop to hand over the following year.

Add to this the lack of any human or civil rights that we consider today a given: you could be arrested anytime, with or without reason, if somebody in the police felt like it. People would disappear without warning — sometimes on the way back from work, sometimes when taking the trash out. No due process was required for “enemies of the people,” there was no presumption of innocence or right to trial by jury of one’s peers; even when a trial was conducted, it was just the judge (always a ‘party’ member,) that hear the case, examine the evidence, question witnesses and pass sentence — no jury, no defense, no witnesses required because there was no “not guilty” verdict, to be accused by a party member was proof of guilt.

No significant private property was allowed: you could own your clothes, and possibly a car of you were a party member or in a protected profession such as a doctor, engineer or  senior police officer but even for those privileged people which there was a waiting list years long, but that was pretty much it. Owning a house was out of question, with minor exceptions; most people would live in government-owned apartments, which were subject to reassignment if considered necessary by the Party.

Apologists for socialist authoritarianism claim it worked for mant decades and still does in China, Cuba, North Korea and a few other outposts. After the Russian Revolution it did work for a while, because nobody dared oppose the state. Anyone who even complained about the chronic shortages or lack of freedom would go to prison or worse. There were people who tried to fight against it in the beginning — they were caught and shot without wasting time on trials or debate.

The system “worked” so well that, in about 50 years of communism, Eastern Europe became a poverty zone that everybody was desperate to get out of. The power outages were so common that everybody were lighting their homes with candles; hot water was only provided a few times a week, by a strict schedule; during winter, it was not uncommon to hear about a family found dead because they tried to use the cooking stove to heat themselves.

So it seems people in the liberal democracies who have taken the trouble to discover the truth about socialism and communism (Karl Marx used the terms interchangably,) do not go too far in demonizing a system that killed millions of people directly, enslaved hundreds of millions, and caused poverty that indirectly killed so many more than we can even estimate.

I like to remind people that in 1870 the Russian anarchist Mikhail Bakunin warned Karl Marx, after reading “The Communist Manifesto,” that a communist government would quickly become more authoritarian and oppressive than Russia’s Czarist regime which was notorious for its brutality. Events have proved hundreds of times, that Bakunin was right.
