The Socialist Party of Great Britain is celebrating the reissuing of Peter Taaffe’s book, The Masses Arise: The Great French Revolution 1789 -1815. “Its republication by Socialist Publications, in time for the 220th anniversary of this great event in July 2009, is extremely timely,” says the party’s website.
A different page on the party’s site promoting the same book instructs readers: “An understanding of the French Revolution remains crucial for all revolutionaries. Marx, Engels, Lenin and Trotsky studied it intensely to gain an understanding of the dynamics of revolutions.” As have virtually all other modern communist revolutionaries and self-styled “liberators” of “the people.” The well-known blood-drenched trails, for example, of Mao Zedong and Zhou Enlai in China, Ho Chi Minh in Vietnam, and Pol Pot in Cambodia, all sprang from the Jacobin tradition, with many of these leaders and their privileged comrades imbibing deeply of the intoxicating elixir of revolution at the Sorbonne and other French universities.
The spirit of the French Revolution continues to stalk our planet as virulently as ever, an ideological plague that refuses to die and continues to be transmitted from one generation to another.
As in 1789, the most influential Jacobins of today can be found among the wealthiest and most privileged echelons of our society. While Jacobins such as Robespierre, Danton, Marat, Hebert, Desmoulins, St. Just, Santerre, Sieyes, Tinville, et al., were the public faces of the revolution, it was the rich and super-rich malcontents in the shadows who provided the funding that made the overthrow of the ancient regime possible. Foremost among these was Louis Phillipe II, the fabulously wealthy and infamously degenerate Duc d’Orleans, who hated King Louis XVI (his cousin) and hated even more Queen consort Marie Antoinette (for rebuffing his sexual advances and causing his banishment from court). Joining him were other titled men of considerable pelf (and, usually, libertine habits), to wit: the Duc de Biron, the Marquis de Sillery, the Vicomte de Noailles, the Baron “Anacharsis” de Cloots, the Comte de Mirabeau, the Marquis de St. Huruge, the Vicomte de Segur, and the infamously perverse Marquis de Sade (from whom we derive the adjective “sadistic”).
From the Duc d’Orleans’ Palais Royal these Orleaniste Jacobins unleashed their agents to terrorize, de-Christianize, and depopulate France, in the name of “reason” and the creation of a “Republic of Virtue” based on “Liberty, Equality, and Fraternity.” Christianity was outlawed and churches were closed and/or desecrated; crucifixes were trampled on; Catholic Mass was forbidden; priests and nuns were butchered, exiled, or forced to apostatize. More than 300,000 people, including many women and children, were slaughtered — by guillotine, mass drownings, “fusillades,” and other inventive means of extermination. But this was barely a start; the Jacobins had plans to kill between eight and eighteen million more (one-third to two-thirds of the nation’s human population) as part of their green plan to depopulate France and turn its people from the Christian worship of the Creator God to the pagan New Age worship of Creation. Thus were the orgies of bloodletting accompanied by appeals to the Jacobins’ new environmental theology: “Perish forever the memory of the priests! Perish forever Christian superstition! Long live the sublime religion of Nature!”
The Duc d’Orleans and his revolutionary aristocrats have their counterparts today. “Some of America’s leading billionaires have met secretly to consider how their wealth could be used to slow the growth of the world’s population,” reported the Sunday Times of London on May 24. This gathering of super-rich “philanthropists,” which was not mentioned in any of the major U.S. media, gathered on May 5 at the Manhattan home of Sir Paul Nurse, a British Nobel prize-winning biochemist and president of private Rockefeller University, for “a summit convened on the initiative of Bill Gates, the Microsoft co-founder.” And the purpose of this distinguished gathering? To discuss “joining forces to overcome political and religious obstacles to change.”
In a stroke of hubris that would cheer Robespierre, the self-anointed “Voice of Virtue,” the new Jacobins have dubbed their exclusive association, “The Good Club.” Who are its members? The Times reports: “Described as the Good Club by one insider it included David Rockefeller Jr, the patriarch of America’s wealthiest dynasty, Warren Buffett and George Soros, the financiers, Michael Bloomberg, the mayor of New York, and the media moguls Ted Turner and Oprah Winfrey.”
These are the folks who have been the leading private financiers of the global depopulation and de-Christianization campaigns, the promoters of abortion, homosexuality, and New Age environmentalism. And in Barack Hussein Obama they have found their Camille Desmoulins, a handsome young lawyer with oratorical skills to push their agenda — all the while declaiming against the rich and powerful.
The following, imho, is the money quote in this report.
I, your too often absent chronicler of death cultists, have no doubt that these self-deifying plutocrats are our leading cultivators of death worship. Death culters have always been hostile to Judeo-Christian ethics, but not until this administration came to power will they have felt themselves so free to hate American Christians and Jews.
When you see practicing Christians and Jews demonized and targeted for hate crimes in the coming days, remember this post!
Never before have the death cultists been so bold!
A few days ago Eternal Vigilance posted a quote by Margaret Sanger wherein she said that it wouldn’t be good for the Negro race to know that they were targeted for depopulation.
Hah! How many OTHER groups do you now think she and those who followed her wanted to keep in the dark whitey?
As free citizens of the United States and founders of Americas Independent Party, we stand in agreement with the founders of our American Republic. Following their example, we declare to the world that our first governmental premise is the self-evident truth that our rights to life, liberty and private property come from our Creator God and are therefore unalienable.
The American revolutionary battle cry was NO KING BUT JESUS!
This, of course, is what differentiated them from the godless French revolutionaries - and why our republic has lasted more than two centuries, while theirs led them under the dominance of a dictator.
Claes G. Ryn’s _America the Virtuous_ has also considered the descendants of Jacobinism. But some people won’t like how he categorizes the Jacobins.
A wonderful piece. Thanks for pinging me to it!
I would imagine that none of these new Jacobins has sent AIP any funds that you know of. When AIP becomes a threat to the established order, they will then find ways to do so. For in such a manner have they attempted to undermine all earthly institutions, and succeeded to do so at very many, including far too many religious orders. Pray for strength.
I read you 5 x 5.
The movers of America's revolution were upper-middle-class and churched people, accustomed to work or supervision.
The movers of the French revolution were plutocratic, selfish, and morally decadent.
Different ingredients, different results.
I’m pretty sure that’s pretty much what I said, in a different way.
God was the foundation for everything the Americans did. He wasn’t for the French. They built their house on the shifting sand of human “wisdom,” wqhich of course isn’t wisdom at all. It just has the appearance of being so to those who don’t know God.
Unfortunately, our foundation is being steadily eroded. That’s why the building is beginning to sag, and cracks are appearing in the structure.
The danger is that the collapse will come before we have the opportunity to shore up the foundations. If it does, God help the inhabitants.
"A bas les aristos!"
Oh my, I just saw the Movie: Danton, with Gerard Depardieu and we all know how that ended. I encourage everyone to see the movie: Danton./Just Asking - seoul62......
As the elites ignore law, steal our wealth and plot to destroy our culture, what makes then think they will escape retribution and justice at the hands of a mob?
Life rarely ends well for those who mock God and his creation.
Should the guillotine roll down Pennsylvania Avenue, nobody will be safe.
There is a slim form of consolation in the knowledge that the Jacobins themselves also ended up “liquidated”.
After all, the celebration of murder has no obvious rational conclusion.
The socialism of the grave awaits us all.
The fallacy in the piece is the equating of Christian ways with the Roman Catholic Church of 18 th century France. The church was a corrupt abomination that in league with the nobility stifled life.
