This set of posts however might take the cake.

It's as if no one here has any knowledge of history before today or any knowledge of the world outside of their talk radio bubble. You may want to read about French history a little and see how totally in line with the French character this all is. These events are literally one of the defining traits of the French along with arrogance, bread and philosophers.

France has always had a push and pull balance between the people and the government many times resulting in violent clashes or even a very bloody revolution. It's quite literally a part of the French national DNA. These types of events happen every few years.

But as usual the idiots here transpose their own strange beliefs onto a given situation. It reminds me when similarly violent protests with burning cars were happening during the 2016 election rhetoric. There weren't too many Mexicans in Paris, so the morons here figured out a way to blame muslims for it. Of course you have to roll your eyes as these geniuses didn't realize that the French burn cars every 6 months. Fast forward to 2018 and muslims are pase so the new boogeyman for you idiots is to blame is socialism.

While you are on a roll, you might as well blame socialism for Germans liking beer or the British for bad teeth
I'd be interested in hearing the perspective of somebody from France here. Somebody level-headed.

Thanks to social media the internet is filled with gut reactions and you only hear the extremes from both sides. Most recently, we have a whole faction of society blaming Trump for what General Motors just pulled. Anybody with even a remote understanding of how the automotive industry works knows this was driven by GM's greed and incompetence. But hey, it's an excuse to blame the person who won't let me take a $hit in peace, let's have to it.
