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.
Nah, that’s is just too Soviet, and thus much too passé.
I think our newly emergent rulers, having let their masks slip entirely off, are relishing their King of the Hill muscles far too much to be that passive-aggressive.
And your tagline is oh so fitting to my point. :)
bert, I’m sorry to have let your comment go for so long, but your statement works at many levels and wanted to word my response without going too deep.
Much of the excesses of the Jacobins began more than a century earlier, right? I find the parallels astounding and would like to hear more from you.
Can you draw parallels between 17th century counter-reformation’s purchased indulgences and Algore’s carbon credits?
I plan to keep on geezin’ for a long time, F’ Obama!
Dismissing uhbama ain’t hard. You must know he’s only the latest DC front man since you’ve been on my DC ping list since it began.
I’m quite sure you’re unafraid to handle the zombies who’ll be after you. But for me, I wished to inoculate the greatest number of children so to reduce the number of zombies our Jacobins successfully produced. It’s the ones I never reached and who’ve been indoctrinated that I worry FOR. I wanted us to have to have to whack fewer. We’ll get over it; but many who still wear blinders may hesitate reality hits them hard, and they’ll find it harder to do what must be done.
These Obama useful idiots in the streets don’t even know these super wealthy eletists exist. They think that the “rich and powerful” are the local banker or car dealer.
Who are you: “Blackie”?
“Far too many CINO leaders ( Protestant and Catholic) are in league with the devil today.”
Yes! Scripture analysts whom I respect say this “When Jesus said the Kingdom of Heaven (The Church) is like a woman who put leaven (a type of evil in Scripture) into THREE LUMPS of meal. Those three lumps are the Catholic Church, The Orthodox Church and the Protestant Church. All three will prove to be apostate.
But, as always in man’s history with God, there is (and will be) a Godly remnant.
Well, I could have used “cowards” this time, but that may have been too much of a stretch.
See post number 3, to which you already responded. I figured you would recall the irony of whitey there, so I recycled it but with less recognizable connection. It is in fact an irony that has been promised to haunt us “cowards” as suggested, I hope you recall, by the AGOTUS. Their mask has dropped, and their threat is real.
I’m sure that you recognize that the majority of those that wear the blinders do so electively. Just look at the number of Freepers that spew their epitaphs when the John Birch Society is mentioned, in spite of the Bircher’s enviable accuracy record (the mirror image of the MSM’s record of falsehood upon falsehood).
The Lord certainly made it clear that he didn’t come to save the world, but those that the Father gave him.
Well put E-S. I often refer to the vast majority as misled. However, at the same time I have noted that very many are quite willing to be misled, even pleading to be told that their choice, however ultimately foolish, is okay, respectable even. Examples abound -- sadly.
Just look at the number of Freepers that spew their epitaphs when the John Birch Society is mentioned, in spite of the Birchers enviable accuracy record (the mirror image of the MSMs record of falsehood upon falsehood).
I repeat, "even pleading to be told" what they want to hear. Please explain what you mean by "their epitaphs?"
The Lord certainly made it clear that he didnt come to save the world, but those that the Father gave him.
All those willfully misled still have a choice. And so do we. While we clearly are told not to bother casting pearls before swine, we still are supposed to do all we can to forewarn our neighbors to help prevent Circe from transforming them.
Just put the name of the organization at the head of an article, and the fools begin to scream shrilly, cursing the Birch society, and any that refuse to reject them, calling the facts stated in the article "tinfoil," or "koolaid."
Freerepublic is loaded with shills for the thugocrasy.
Here lies [insert name here]
whose head resided here long before [his/her] body.
These Obama useful idiots in the streets dont even know these super wealthy elitists exist. They think that the rich and powerful are the local banker or car dealer.
It only proves that you and I haven't been doing our job. We must become the media.
I’m not surprised that you put it as “slim form of consolation.” The Duc D’Orleans son did eventually ascend to the thrown of France as Louis-Philippe I (1830-1848), meaning that old reprobate’s aim was fulfilled. Too bad the pikes didn’t have a longer reach.
The thoughts about the carbon credits/indulgences never crossed my mind. It is an interesting comparison.
Guilt is assuaged with money.
Salvation is achieved through good works.
algore is pope.
I pinged you to another thread where American in Israel posts similsr thoughts
Initial thought...... reformation trumps buying salvation
