SARAH HOYT: The Yellow Jackets Revolt And The Future Of America:

The media has been so quiet on the Yellow Jackets in France that you could be excused for thinking my title refers to some kind of invasion by weird wasps.

Well, for the record, it doesn’t. It refers to the ongoing revolt in France by various groups but mostly, honestly, middle aged, middle class people who have just had middle-class enough and are now setting fires to things and making life hell in the ritzy districts of Paris (and elsewhere.)

You probably thought that was all over and done with, and you’d be excused for thinking it, because our media has worked so hard not to report it.

The thing is, it’s very much still alive and it’s giving Macron problems.

Read the whole thing.
