There are two separate groups protesting in France. One is the leftist group and the other is people we would align with.
I haven't seen anything on leftist "protests", but I'll assume that if patriots have taken to the streets, then counter-protestors have as well.
Also, there is a nice chance that the derp government and derp media are playing up any "left wing/Antifa/Soros" angle.
They don't like to talk about the rising up of the real people. Sort of a Tea Party/Q movement suppression kinda media blackout AND outright lies.
And I hear the Frog government is now blaming Russia. Haha.
