On RFI’s anti-gilets jaunes political hysteria mongering! Almost Marx comments

Headline: Violence against France’s institutions – how far is too far?

Sub-headline:  An arson attempt on Saturday at the residence of France’s Speaker of the Assembly has put the spotlight on similar acts of vandalism aimed at France’s public institutions.

 

Paragraph heading : No evidence of ‘Yellow Vest’ motive

The attempted arson, which took place on the same day as the 13th Yellow Vest protests, was initially suspected be linked to the movement’s hardline demonstrators.

But according to Jean-Philippe Recappé, public prosecutor of Brest (Brittany), no evidence of this has been found.

“There was no graffiti, demands or other signs that link the arson with the gilets jaunes”, said Recappé. “A window shutter and pane exploded, that was it.”

He also underlined the absence of danger for Mr Ferrand.

“This is not a main residence”, Recappé said. “No one was in the house”.

‘Destroying public property, attacking journalists and elected officials, violating the intimacy of their homes and urinating on France’s institutions.’

Rootless cosmopolitan,down at heels intellectual;would be writer. 'Polemic is a discourse of conflict, whose effect depends on a delicate balance between the requirements of truth and the enticements of anger, the duty to argue and the zest to inflame. Its rhetoric allows, even enforces, a certain figurative licence. Like epitaphs in Johnson’s adage, it is not under oath.' https://www.lrb.co.uk/v15/n20/perry-anderson/diary
