Years ago...I went on a tour of the last major fort in France (Bitche). There is a great story behind the big battle in the late 1800s where French army unit left at the fort held out for weeks and weeks against the Germans...expecting reinforcements to eventually come, and the political figures simply wouldn’t allow that. It was probably the last time that any real French courage existed.
At some point on the tour, they lead you deep into the fort, and there’s a video presentation done. It’s a very slanted....leftist piece....that really slams the guys who were at the fort and the terrible military leadership involved. I sat there almost grinning as this played out on the screen, in English. They dug out several French historians who ‘validated’ the history of the fort, and this last great battle.
France has a great history...if they would ever come to admit it in public.
When a nation can no longer confidently tell its own story as a nation, is it still a nation?
We should all be praying for France, especially the francais de souche.
His problem is he sees the past in political terms. France produced the first hot air balloon and the first sewing machine. I think they produced one of the first combustion engines. They had first modern doctors and hospitals. They had the first civil servants. (The jury is still out on that one.)
It's TRUTH that all Leftists/"Liberals" fear--and for good reason! If they were capable of TRUTH they wouldn't be Leftists/"Liberals" in the first place.
communists always change history when it suits their needs.
