“In France and Britain, gilets jaunes have mutated into symbols of anger against anything from austerity to Islam”
The Guardian are so deceitful. Guess which group targeted by the ‘gilet jaunes’ is not mentioned by the Guardian? Why didn’t the article mention antisemitism? Because it might taint the purity of the French protesters they empathize with and support? Or, because antisemitism means nothing to them? Or because the Guardian has sold out its journalistic roots?
In the scheme of things, it’s like a drop in the ocean. But to mix metaphors, it’s the drip, drip, drip effect of approaches as in this article that minimizes antisemitism and fosters a world view that is, put simply, wrong.
