    The Yellow Vest Hospital Hoax: I Reported Live From the Scene as It Happened

The French government has been forced to shamefully admit that they made totally false accusations that May Day Yellow Vest anti-government protesters tried to break into the Pitié Salpêtrière Hospital in order to “attack”, “assault” and “steal”. Countless mainstream media are just as covered in ignominy for having repeated these untrue claims. I was right there when it happened,…

The terms “fair” and “unfair,” and even “extremely unfair,” come to mind when children quarrel on the playground, or maybe in a family feud when parents…

Muslims and the Working Class: France’s Marginalized and Natural Yellow Vest Allies

  Muslims and the Working Class: France’s Marginalized and Natural Yellow Vest Allies

Even though the Yellow Vest anti-government movement is historic in scope, duration and intensity, and even though Muslims comprise 5-10% of France’s population, there has been almost zero media coverage of the interplay between these two forces.
