Yellow Vest fever spreading like plague
Why do some Canadians seem so willing to lose themselves in somebody else's adopted identity?
You can watch this weekend's Yellow Vest protest in France live on Ruptly TV
(Afternote: the live Ruptly TV streaming has ended for today, but you can see its live broadcast of the whole Dec 7 action on YouTube.)
The French have found a fun, though undignified, way to spend a weekend. Now that they have been popularized by the commercial media, how many of them do you think are just there for the adrenalin rush?
I'm no fan of Macron, but the French elected him knowing full well what an idiot he was and is. I also know a colour movement when I see one, and have grave concerns that they are deliberately fomented for a purpose; to create general havoc; to promote neo-liberalism. Corporatism; fascism, call it what you will; chaos is deliberately created for the ultimate benefit of and rulership by the obscenely rich.
The French should be reminded that when they stormed the Bastille they didn't wear costumes.
But I couldn't care less how the French handle their perceived problems; I'm more concerned now with effect that their media stardom has had on the minds of certain people in other countries, including Canada.
In videos, you'll see that the vest is merely a symbol now; the majority of protesters don't appear to be wearing them. Still, it's a symbol that's being encouraged (by what entity, I wonder) all over the place, and it's been mindlessly adopted by some Canadians as well, generally those who lean heavily to the Right.

I'm with you guys, in that I support your right to protest anything you want, as long as you don't get violent, or destructive, or try to intimidate bystanders who don't necessarily agree with your cause, but for pete's sake don't act so mindwashed.
The adoption of the yellow vest for everything under the sun is a symptom of TV media implantation. I'm embarrassed to see Canadians acting like a herd of mindless sheep. No, even sheep are not completely mindless.

And if you don't think there's racism involved, then you're just having a nice little dream.
The French, themselves, have a long history of racism and violent colonialism. There's nothing romantic about the history of Algeria at the hands of the French. If there is anything special about being Canadian it's the firm intent to be inclusive.
The far right in Canada is a very bad trend but it looks like something we will have to live through.
Incidentally, those vests are not yellow, they are green, dammit. Anybody should be able to see that.
Here's a conundrum: with all of the accusations against Russia, its provocations and its news media, guess where the French Yellow Vesters prefer to get their news: from RT (See Video) because they feel they are not truthfully described in the regular media.
Has the BBC misrepresented them too? See image below and read the article because there's a very telling statement in it from a protester indicating that it's not really a spontaneous uprising, it's organized by some very powerful and (often corrupt) institutions:
