HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO AMERICA'S OLDEST ALLY - THE REPUBLIC OF FRANCE - FROM THE CAST OF "CASABLANCA."


TOPICS: Miscellaneous
KEYWORDS: citizens; france; liberty; march
Like the protagonists of "Casablanca" we live in a fascist occupied country...Do we run away, or do we fight? At the end of the movie the answer was stand and fight.

Isn’t that movie a work of fiction, produced by Hollywood?

A production of Old Patriotic Hollywood, yes.

Lady Augusta Bracknell:
... To be born, or at any rate bred, in a hand-bag, whether it had handles or not, seems to me to display a contempt for the ordinary decencies of family life that reminds one of the worst excesses of the French Revolution. And I presume you know what that unfortunate movement led to? ...

Yes...The Reign of Terror...Clearly, the Jacobins went a little too far in revolutionary zeal...

On the other hand, they did pretty much rid in country of the elite aristocratic scum who had reduced formerly wealthy France to poverty.

Maybe there is a lesson in this history for contemporary USA?

Excellent cartoon that speaks truth - Our house is divided.

And we know where that leads...

Idealistic?
HELL YEAH!!!!!

It was the so-called FF who first held the Ideal so dear, and then they acted upon that Ideal—real Americans still do—”others”....are easily persuaded/influenced by whatever their particular brand/mentality of bs that comes along....

Semper Truth!

Many lessons.

We are blessed in the orderliness and temperance of our Revolution.

Tell that to the thousands of Tories we ran out of the country to Canada after seizing their property during and after the American Revolution.

And those were the lucky ones - The unlucky Tories were lynched, burned to death in their homes, imprisoned, or at best tarred, feathered and ran out of town naked on a rail even in the middle of winter.

A revolution/civil war is not a Sunday concert in the park. If Obama is successful in starting a civil war, he will have opened the gates of hell.

Yeah, the marxist devils love turmoil--the escapees/refugees from the European Marxist Revolt of 1848 provided us in America with the first big cadre of Marxists at that time--lincoln's bid for election, the War For Southern Independence, was their first successes, and Chicago town became their headquarters and schoolhouse of influence....

Strange that so many who even oppose him/it do provide him (falsely)the unfounded honor of the title.

The Post & Email, though, is the first (and only) to my knowledge who both makes it their official practice, and also makes a statement to that effect on their website for all to see. Good setting the example, good leadership, call it whatever....

Some writers do, however, to their credit, regularly use the term usurper, aka, and others.

Extend and revise?

Comparatively speaking. Among revolutions mild-mannered (or whatever I said.)

Huh? I guess you never heard of Lord Cornwallis’s campaign of terror through South Carolina or Sir Banastre Tarleton, whoes very name was associated with butchery.

Of course, these two butchers were no different than Sherman and Grant.

As for another “civil war”, I was born a free man and I will die as one. My knee bends to none other than He who created me.

My point exactly - the American Revolution was also a civil war - Patriots vs. Tories. It was not pretty with injustice done on both sides. When the war ended, the Tories either went to England or Canada. Winner takes it all, the loser takes the fall.

I suppose...Although if you were one of those Patriots who died a slow and miserable death on the British prison ships in New York harbor it was pretty horrible...or if you were a Tory supporter of King George driven out of your home in the middle of winter and looking at thousand mile march to Canada...was equally horrible.

Yes, in general both British and American regular armies were gentlemen in conduct and fought most of their battles outside cities to keep civilian deaths to a minimum.

A revolution/civil war is not a Sunday concert in the park. If Obama is successful in starting a civil war, he will have opened the gates of hell.

That would be easy enough for anyone to see, just by looking at all the other "lucky" war-torn third-world cesspools that darken the daily news.

Here in the USA, we have not had "war-torn" for the past 145 years. It's a foreign concept. It could never happen here. We're too civilized. We don't do things that way.[/sarcasm]

To the contrary, here in the USA, when it starts it will get world-class ugly in record time, for several different reasons.

The tools of war are available to just about everyone (that's a good thing).

People here are not accustomed to being hungry, dirty, tired, cold, wet, scared, etc. -- when all these experiences hit home, and linger day after day, there's going to be a few hundred million very angry people ready to kill anyone and everyone.

Reason # 1: Over half of the US population know that this whole unnecessary catastrophe is being manufactured by the commie Dems, commie RINOs, and commie media. Guess who they are going to be looking for.

My take as well!

I’ve predicted civil war since 1970 when as a young soldier at Arlington Hall Station in Arlington, Virginia I got a bird’s eye view of the Communist led anti-Vietnam War demonstrations and as a member of the Army Security Agency got to read classified reports about the goals of their leadership which was to overthrow the Republic.

Today those Viet Cong flag waving maggot infested long hair dope smoking commies wear suits and constitute the executive and legislative branches of the federal government. In their twisted minds they have already won - just a little mopping up to do. However, they are faced with a determined opponent who wants to destroy them. They will resist and think that the military and police forces will do the dirty work.

And this mistake by our commie traitors will start a very bloody civil war made worse by modern technology in the hands of the most ruthless revolutionists on the face of the earth - American Patriots.

I feel sorry for them. I really do! As a former American soldier I know that when the shooting starts and the bombs begin to fall there will be no quarter asked...or given.
