Tucker Carlson reveals that the media is covering up the reason for the riots and protests by the Yellow Vests in France for the past three weeks. The real reason is that President Macron has implemented a 30¢ global-warming tax on gas and diesel fuel that already costs over $7 per gallon. Half of that is tax. Chuck Davore of the Texas Public Policy Foundation says that the Yellow Vests working-class people are pushing back against being economically squeezed by the government while at the same time immigrants from Africa and the Middle East are being helped. Davore says the UN wants to raise the fuel tax to $49 over the next 12 years allegedly to fight climate change. He says the recent climate report based on flawed data put out by the US government was financed by leftist billionaires Michael Bloomberg and Tom Steyer both of whom are vying to become the next American president.
Last weekend, the Yellow Vests targeted the wealthy areas of Paris for riot, where stores were smashed and looted, dozens of cars were burnt, and police were overwhelmed by protesters.
