Not a destination on my travel list this year, for sure!

What else did you expect the government to say?

1 ( +2 / -1 )

Why would you even go to Paris? Overpriced, rude hospitality, crowded, even during good times.

I prefer Marseille, real people, real comfort food, decent places to stay without the price tag. Ignore what people say about crime, just don't do stupid things like walking around drunk in rough neighbourhood.

Marseille is where these violent rioters burned down the library.

Riots in France: this “burnt library” in Marseille is actually Manila • FRANCE 24 English

In particular, internet users claim the city's Alcazar Library was burnt by rioters, though our fact-checking showed a different location entirely

FAKE!

No it isn’t. You fell for a fake news story. The library in Marseilles was damaged but didn’t burn down and is open again right now.

Golly,

Given the poster, what are the odds?

3 ( +3 / -0 )

About the same odds as the BBC and CNN both falsely posting that it was the library in Marseille which was burned down.

the Wikipedia post still exists until they stealth edit that too.

Why they would show pics of another library I wouldn’t know, as I didn’t see any pics or videos just the articles.

Left media is terrible these days, full of lies, edits and misinformation.

The pathetic cry of a tortured soul.

Did you think that your enemies wouldn't do what you are doing?

The video link I posted was France 24.

France 24 is a French state-owned international news television network based in Paris.

From the one who insists that Trump won and that the insurrection that we all saw on live tv was nothing more than legitimate political discourse no less.

Somehow not that surprising…
