My personal guess is that we’ll be seeing this sort of thing throughout the United States by the 2024 Presidential Election – or perhaps even earlier – as the facade of “democracy” crumbles once and for all.
But we have to ask ourselves if such things are in actuality bad, as it has been proven time and time again that the masses need more than hollow words and rhetoric to realize that this modern society is like a sinking ship in the middle of the icy Northern Atlantic.
Apparently it may take absolute anarchy and a collapse of the normal to get folks to understand change is needed – and needed badly if cultural and racial survival is to be ensured.
Protests, violence and vandalism flared up in Paris as results of the first round of the tight presidential race were being counted, footage captured by RT’s Ruptly agency shows. Disillusioned French youth protested what many of them see as a political “masquerade.”
One disturbing scene captured by Ruptly shows a young woman scuffling with a police officer, and being forcefully thrown on the asphalt face-down. Others rush to help the woman, who cries in pain and struggles to get up, but eventually remains helplessly lying on the ground. An ambulance crew then arrives to take away the young protester, who seems to have suffered serious injuries.
AFP reported that at least five vehicles were burned out in the Saint-Martin-République area.
Several hundred young people gathered on the Place de la Bastille in the center of the French capital on Sunday night after the announcement of preliminary results, AFP reported.
“We came to protest against the masquerade that represents this election,” a protester told AFP on condition of anonymity.
The demonstration, dubbed #NuitDesBarricades (Night of the Barricades) against both Macron and Le Pen, soon resulted in clashes between protesters and police. At least two protesters, including a 15-year-old girl, were reportedly injured in the scuffles.
Police said that demonstrators were throwing projectiles, bottles and firecrackers at the officers. At least three people were arrested, according to a police prefecture. Police, in turn, deployed tear gas against the demonstrators.
An organizer of the rally reportedly called upon everyone to come to protest “against Marine and against Macron.” “Whatever the outcome, we will not recognize the [the results]!” he shouted via the microphone.
