The French Right Wears Yellow Political Vests

Written by journalist Sameh Selim, a member of the American Press Agency

France, a nation steeped in law and freedom, is a beacon of constitutions and political systems. It is a hub of intellectual and artistic brilliance, a land that has given birth to philosophers, thinkers, artists, and distinguished politicians. Its history is marked by Bonaparte, Descartes, Rousseau, Voltaire, Charles de Gaulle, Jacques Chirac, and Mitterrand, each leaving an indelible imprint on its rich tapestry.

The people of this country are aware of what they are doing, love their country, and are proud of their French-European identity. When their country is exposed to imminent danger, they stand in the face of authority, objecting and wearing yellow vests. It has become a symbol of political objection or political revolution against political, economic, or social mistakes that devastate the people’s economy and their European identity without ruling political responsibility of European awareness and belonging, the people, with their intellectuals, politicians, and middle class, rise against the ruling regime, this time wearing yellow political vests to object to the current government in the form of Mrs. Marie Le Pen, the leader of the extreme right, in several stormy issues in French and European society, such as the issues of illegal immigration and the tyranny of immigrant culture over French identity and the established European customs and traditions and their impact on politics and the economy and on the hopes and aspirations of the French people and the European peoples that derive their strength from countries that have leadership and influence in the surrounding European societies such as France, Germany and Italy. Italy is the country of Roman history, civilization, and the Renaissance, France is the country of law, politics, and constitutions, and Germany is the country of economy and industry.

As we witness this movement, we are left with questions. Is this a genuine political revolution, a seismic shift in the political landscape with the ascent of the French right? Or is it a new French campaign, a concerted effort to reclaim and reestablish the authentic French identity that seems to be slipping away? While these questions may not have clear answers, they invite us to delve deeper into the complexities of the yellow vests movement and its implications for French and European politics and identity.
