Bastille Day: The Beginning of Liberal Madness

July 14 was Bastille Day, which although it is still celebrated in France, is not what it’s cracked up to be. From Ann Coulter at anncoulter.com:

BASTILLE DAY: THE BEGINNING OF LIBERAL MADNESS

This Tuesday, the French celebrated Bastille Day, the mob attack on a Parisian prison that has come to symbolize the French Revolution, a period of massive violence that produced nothing other than a lot of dead Frenchmen. Their revolution was the screech of a mob, much as we are seeing in several of our own cities and towns today. So let’s review this absurdly celebrated event.

As is common with mob violence the storming of the Bastille was set off by a rumor. People began to whisper that the impotent, indecisive king, Louis XVI, was going to attack the new legislative body, the National Assembly.

Hands Up! Don’t Shoot! (Even Eric Holder’s Justice Department found that claim was a lie — after multiple millions in property damage and human suffering.)

Mass protests over police killing an innocent black man in Detroit! (Turns out, Hakim Littleton was firing a gun at them.)

Althea Bernstein’s face was burned with lighter fluid and a match thrown at her by four “classic Wisconsin frat boys“! ((After initial flood-the-zone coverage, that story sure disappeared fast.)

In need of weapons to defend themselves from the imaginary attack, on the morning of July 14, 1789, about 60,000 French citizens armed with pikes and axes assembled at Les Invalides, a barracks for aging soldiers, to demand weapons and ammunition.

    It certainly reads like a “false-flag” event like the 9/11 attacks. Here’s what Wikipedia has to say about it:

    “Meanwhile, in 1784, the architect Alexandre Brogniard proposed that *the Bastille be demolished and converted into a circular, public space* with colonnades. Director-General of Finance Jacques Necker, having examined the costs of running the Bastille, amounting to well over 127,000 livres in 1774, for example, proposed *closing the institution on the grounds of economy alone.* Similarly, Puget, the Bastille’s lieutenant de roi, submitted reports in 1788 suggesting that the authorities *close the prison, demolish the fortress and sell the real estate off.* In June 1789, the Académie royale d’architecture proposed a similar scheme to Brogniard’s, in which *the Bastille would be transformed into an open public area, with a tall column at the centre* surrounded by fountains, dedicated to Louis XVI as the “restorer of public freedom” …. by July 1789 only *seven* prisoners remained in custody. Before any official scheme to close the prison could be enacted, however, disturbances across Paris brought a more violent end to the Bastille.” – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bastille#Criticism_and_reform

    The “storming” of the Bastille was a controlled demolition event like the WTC attacks in 2001. As Wikipedia shows us, the ancient fortress was already scheduled to be destroyed because it didn’t meet code, was taking too much space, was dilapidated, was too expensive to maintain, and most importantly had almost no prisoners. Doesn’t the event now look like a precursor to the 9/11 con? It is very convenient that all of this was taking place in the days leading up to this big event. No way any of this is “coincidence.”
