Interesting piece, IMO.
That report says two dead and one brain-dead; this one (which omits the suspect’s name, tellingly) says three (perhaps they include the brain-dead one, which makes more sense than separating out); I heard four on a YouTube show.
Regardless, this happening after weeks of protests by the ‘gilets jaunes’, as the Guardian story noted, I wouldn’t be surprised if a ‘state of emergency’ is used as a pretext to move against them.
My hope is that the Yellow Vests add irritation over lack of national security, and concerns over immigration, to their tax and economic protests. Make the connections: the welfare state looking after millions of unassimilable immigrants who hate Westerners puts an undue economic burden on ordinary Frenchmen…

Not only did Trudeau go to India – which, as PM, isn’t out of the ordinary – but so have ostensible conservatives Andrew Scheer, Jason Kenney, and Patrick Brown, all gone over there to pander. It works, of course: Patrick Brown won Brampton’s mayoral race no doubt because of the contacts he made a year ago over there when he was still Ontario’s Tory leader; no way can a white person win Brampton’s mayoralty without Indian support…
Anyway, I expect a Liberal PM to go to India and pander; I’m disappointed when supposed rightists do likewise, but I’m certainly not surprised, when they do…
But you know who hasn’t gone over there to pander (far as I know and as far as I can tell in attempting to fact check this)?
There’s a man who still has some honour, and who is not a traitor to his people.
As I noted in the first post in this series, complementarians used their trusted position as defenders of conservative christian culture to dismantle the defenses against the feminist attack. This is the same strategy Christian gay activists are using as well. On their face they seem to be protecting conservative Christianity from the charges of hate and bigotry, but their real focus is on dismantling the defenses. This is true for both the defenses protecting theology and the church as well as defenses of the family, with a special emphasis on children.
Rev Thomas Littleton at the blog Thirty Pieces of Silver describes this in ERLC Family Conference Redefines Family As The Inclusive Church:
ERLC and Russell Moore advocate redefining family and promote gay priest who wants to babysit your children.
