Why Yellow Vests?

“The protesters are wearing neon yellow vests that all French drivers are supposed to have in their cars.

“A law that took effect in 2008 requires a ‘high-visibility upper-body garment’ to be within reach inside the passenger compartment in case the driver has to get out of the immobilized vehicle.” — The Yellow Vests: Who they are and why their tax protest is a big deal

Heh.

Haven’t read these next two, just linking for convenience:

Conspiracy theory

So Google, Apple, Facebook, Twitter, CNN, and probably the Bavarian Burgerbilders got together and kicked Alex Jones off the internet. That’s ironic in two ways. So Big Tech conspired to silence Jones – for peddling crazy conspiracy theories. But Jones wasn’t really a conspiracy theorist. Maybe he is now.

Irony aside, this is foolish. Now that Google and all of them have shown that they can kick someone offline, they’ll have to explain why they haven’t kicked X off line. X is an obnoxious idiot; X is a racist homophobe; X is literally Hitler. Why does X still have a weblog, email, phone service, paypall?

Someone a little more to the left is sure to ask.
