Only the Russian media is reporting on the protests in France

In case you were wondering, yes, the French are still protesting. And yes, the police are still tear-gassing them.

It is only the Russian media that is reporting it in English.It’s really hard to look at these protests in France and not compare and contrast them with the protests in Hong Kong.

The comparison is that large numbers of people are rioting and being tear gassed. The protests look very similar.

The first major contrast would be the fact that the French have actual demands that could be negotiated, but the government simply refuses to engage them, whereas the Hong Kong protesters do not have any clear demands, and are simply planning to kill cops in a vague plan to overthrow the government.

Further, the French are pointing to actual, visible corruption and graft in the government, which the Hong Kong rioters have not done.

The second major contrast is that the entire global media is silent on the French protests, while the Hong Kong protests, we are told, are the most important thing on earth, and something that Americans and others should be extremely concerned about.

Another difference is that Hong Kong protesters are attacking civilians who disagree with their revolutionary agenda, and in some cases, burning older, nationalistic Hong Kong citizens alive. This is designed to create fear among the public so as to prevent counter demonstrations.
