Place this under the category schadenfreude: M. 37% is not just an utterly clueless enarque, but an authoritarian under the dull-witted propaganda of ‘Jupertarian Politics’! ‘The Paris Police’ are ,in fact, under the command of M.37%, is an attempt to remove the notion of political agency from M. 37%: a not very cunning move by the Financial Times writers/editors/propagandists/apologists.
I and many others saw the photos and videos of the Police holding students ‘as if’ they were the Palestinians, under the IDF’s violent thrall. ‘Bad Optics’ like this are the enemy of M.37% and his minions. Is that self-proclaimed ‘Jupertarian Revolution’ reaching the point of an evolving series of political denouements, that signal that M.37% and his elite educated minions share in a folie à millions, to state it in the hyperbolic, not shared by the gilets jaunes? These dissidents exist with the tacit acceptance of the general populous, as reported in this essay! There is one other dread possibility: that M.37% and his Police will commit a horrendous crime of executing one or more of the gilets jaunes or students, in their zeal in pursuit of ‘Law and Order’! In American history Kent State and Nixon are inextricably linked. Is M.37% so lost in venal egotism …?
