Vendée and the United States Compared
A reader sent me a link to a set of four videos by Ann Barnhardt. The person who sent them to her also sent this introduction:
- I should caution you that Ann Barnhardt is by every measure an extremist, but in ways that are good and in ways that are not so good. She will say things about France that are bound to offend you. Her language is very coarse at times. She is a very ardent Latin Rite Roman Catholic, an extremely patriotic American who is convinced that the end is near at hand for the US. She is frantically trying to awaken people to the dangers that she sees all around us. About a year or so ago, she shut down her own successful cattle and grain trading business because she became convinced that the markets were operating illegally; soon thereafter we found out that indeed they were and still are. She has made a number of strongly anti-Islam videos, as well as a number of anti-Obama videos. To say the least, she is a real firebrand.
The video above is the fourth of the set of four. She begins where she left off in her discussion of the Vendean War, the massacre in the region known today as la Vendée, that took place during the French Revolution, between 1793 and 1796.
The war, which was in truth a genocide and an attempt at "population substitution", something that is happening again today throughout Europe and North America, is a very complex topic that requires much reading to understand even partially. There are excellent books on the topic, but for now I am confining myself to these videos, since they are really as much about the United States as about France.
The video above is about 17-minutes long, Ann's voice is a bit strident, so if you are interested, pace yourselves accordingly. For the whole set plus more from Ann Barnhardt, click here. If you read through her webpage you will probably find her offensive, and if you are French, you will be (justifiably) insulted. She insists on calling the French "surrender monkeys" and she launches into a useless tasteless tirade on the tastelessness of champagne. Her basic ideology is, nonetheless, patriotism plus God. God and Country. Should there be an eruption of widespread violence, barbarity and unspeakable brutality in the near future, a war to the death, a war to save or sink Western civilization, then Ann Barnhardt's language will seem like sugary poetics compared to what we will see and hear around us then.
