The first time around, wasn't it Marie-Antoinette-Josèphe-Jeanne d’Autriche-Lorraine (the wife of the king of France at the time) who allegedly (and questionably) said "Let them eat cake." when told of the plight of the peasants going hungry. It is not so much those words or who uttered them that is important but that the arrogance behind them was the same arrogance exhibited by the French monarch at the time.
Now that the peasants, in the form of continuing protests by the Yellow Jackets, are again making it be known that they cannot stand the ill treatment shown them by the French government (over taxation among other things), that same form of repugnant arrogance is again being exhibited by the ruler of France. Macron's response to the continued protests by the Yellow Jackets - in essence was: Let them eat bullets as he gave authority for the French military to open fire on the civilian population who take part in the Yellow Jacket rallies and protests of the government. In essence he left it to the military to decide when they cause enough of a threat to be shot.
Don't these dastardly arrogant, over taxing & otherwise unscrupulous tyrants ever learn! Me thinks Marcon shall not long remain in power. The French Revolution II (aka: The Guillotine Blade Shall Rise & Fall Again) coming soon to a news outlet near you.
All the best,
