On this day 26 Messidor CCXXVII, let us remember a REAL revolution!

Recommended Posts

The so-called "American Revolution" of 1776 was nothing but a bunch of wealthy white Protestant men getting upset at another group of wealthy white Protestant men because they were paying too much in taxes.  Cry me a river!  Heck, the end result wasn't even a complete upending of the political/social order - what the hell kind of revolution is that?!?

 

Whereas in France in 1789, a REAL revolution took place that totally upended practically every aspect of French culture, society, and politics as the Ancien Régime of the Bourbon monarchy was cast into the dustbin of history, and a new era of TRULY Republican politics began. They even invented an awesome new calendar!  Look at the totally badass things we got from that revolution.

 

An awesome national anthem:

 

Just look at these badass lyrics:

Quote

Do you hear, in the countryside

The roar of those ferocious soldiers?
They’re coming right into your arms
To cut the throats of your sons, your comrades!

 

To arms, citizens!
Form your battalions
Let’s march, let’s march
That their impure blood
Should water our fields.

 

It also gave us the single greatest invention in all of human history:

And lastly, a fantastic military parade that is only outdone by the one the Russians throw on May 9 for WWII Victory Day

I wish you all a "Bonne La Fête Nationale!"

I can never forget my father-in-law's birthday since it's the same as Bastille Day!
