  • Today marks the celebration of the storming of the Bastille. While today many liberals will celebrate this moment in history as 'progress' for mankind (as will many 'conservatives'), today should really be marked as one of the moments in history that lead to a decline in the West.

    The French Revolution led to regicide, the September Massacres that started with the priests, the slaughter of hundreds of thousands of Catholics in the Vendee region of France, the Terror, and almost two decades of Napoleonic wars. This situation would not be replicated until Robespierre's great disciple would take power in Russia in 1917.

    And what was the moral ground for the French Revolution? The men of the Enlightenment, such as Voltaire who signed his letters with "Escrasez l'infame"- "Wipe out the infamy" i.e. the Church, Diderot who declared, "Mankind will not be free until the last king has been strangled with the entrails of the last priest," along with Rosseau who declared, "Man is born free but everywhere he is in chains." Even the great democrat Thomas Jefferson seemed to sanction terror, "The tree of liberty must be watered with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure."

  • The storming of the Bastille is definably a calendar day in the decline of the west.

  • I think that it is interesting that for the bicenteniel of the storming of the Bastille, the organizers wanted to use descentants of the original mob. Nobody was willing to admit to being related to that mob.

  • The French revolt, the Bolshevik revolt, both moves by judaic masons to destroy the Church and bring about the reign of Lucifer.

    Lucifer- the light bearer. Strange name indeed for the prince of darkness! - Albert Pike

    It is why they call it the 'enlightenment'.

    All the calendars I've seen said Bastille Day is July 14th, not 12th.
