So where did the hot mess of today’s progtard efforts to reduce all of humanity to their dung beetle world begin? It began with The French Revolution, the revolution that took the American Revolution and, in short, screwed the pooch when it came to replicating that in France. Oh well, they were — after all — “The Dog-Fucking French”™
The vileness of the French method of replacing monarchy was widely known and commented on at the time and long after. The most notorious among these memoirs was Carlyle’s The French Revolution: A History, 1837. It was a work of three volumes and over 300,000 words. It has endured.
I’ve read an abridged version of Carlyle’s masterpiece and that was heavy going enough. Fortunately, here in the YourTube era, we have our own contemporary history from Flappr to lighten your load.
Yes, it takes an hour and a half. So what? It’s worth it and you burned through many more hours than that binge-watching Breaking Bad for the third time, right? Right.
Besides, Flappr’s summation of The French Revolution is carefully tuned to the times in which we find ourselves now; times in which we are one false-flag incident away from the moment when “The Guns Come Out.” And the tune that this visual history plays is both brilliant and laugh-out-loud funny. It is accurate in its history and yet scathing in its satire.
In the hands of Flappr this is a righteous revision of all the revisionary garbage that’s been spewed out about revolution in the last century.
