Skip to comments.The Guillotine: A Symbol Meant to Terrify Americans into Submission
Posted on 09/13/2020 9:12:04 PM PDT by Tolerance Sucks Rocks
All culture wars involve a clash of symbols. Symbols say a lot with a little. All it takes is a piece of cloth or an extraordinary object to transmit a world of ideas. They convey identity, impact and mood.
One sinister symbol, appearing in the riots and disturbances, is the guillotine. In picking this device, the rioters have chosen a symbol that energizes their militants, frightens their opponents and represents their uncompromising ideologies.
These revolutionaries adopt it willingly, enthusiastically and unapologetically. They know exactly what it means and use it to strike terror in the souls of those it targets.
The Guillotine Appears
The guillotine targets the American order. It is found on Portlands chaotic streets, even in its residential neighborhoods at night, as a warning of what can be expected from revolutionary mob justice. It has appeared before the house of Jeff Bezos near Washington, D.C. The militants at the CHAZ/CHOP experiment in Seattle referred to it. After the Republic National Convention, protesters outside the White House displayed a guillotine with an effigy of President Trump to be beheaded.
The guillotine was the instrument of death and terror by which tens of thousands were executed during the French Revolution. Its inventor was a French physician, Dr. Joseph-Ignace Guillotin. He had hoped to develop a machine that would behead the French Revolutions enemies painlessly and mechanically. Unfortunately, his name became almost synonymous with the wholesale slaughter that characterized the revolution that so destroyed French society.

The Left really enjoys their orgasmic delusions. The have no idea how well armed and determined decent people will be when the time comes.
and reviewing history, like many who embraced the guillotine for dispatching their enemies
they too fail to realize in the end, many of them will wind up under it as well
The Nazis used the guillotine more than they did firing squads.
A few Antifa heads piled up neatly like cannon balls would send a message, IMO.
If they can trot around with guillotines, why I can’t I stomp around with a 30” machete?
if you can open carry i dont see why not
I will see their guillotine and raise one industrial chipper shredder.
Having Antifa build one and roll it out to our neighborhoods will make it that much easier to use on them.
They bring their guillotines, we bring our guns. I like the odds.....
Flying lead is not a symbol.
These fools think this is a game!
the very same people that see nooses hanging from every tree and garage, think a guillotine is a good symbol.
Thats a deterrent, Im thinking we face more of a numbers elimination game in the future,
Its just my fat gut feeling.
Lead will be the main tool...along with sacrifice.
Can I have a tank?
I would like one.
It’s the AntiFa shitheads that will be marched to the guillotine . Right after the election ,which they will try to overthrow . Real guillotines , with steel blade , no plastic blades . We are building them now . 100’s of them. They will be branded with an A on their foreheads, before their heads are removed , so they are marked as anarchists, in death.
They started this shit , we will finish it
