The left in this country is upset that tear gas was used by the Trump Administration to control the Border, against what may fairly be described as an invasion Force… and yet never complained once how about the 48 times tear gas was used in the Obama Administration for the same purpose, and reasonably close to the same location.
Meanwhile, today, the French are tear gassing their own citizens, upset at uncontrolled immigration high taxation, over-regulation and so on. In short, they are very much annoyed at a government which no longer represents them.
Right leaning govts use force against Invaders, whereas
Left wing govts use force against their citizens.
