Bastille Day 2016



"Allons enfants de la Patrie,
Le jour de gloire est arrivé!
Contre nous de la tyrannie,
L'étendard sanglant est levé, (bis)
Entendez-vous dans les campagnes
Mugir ces féroces soldats?
Ils viennent jusque dans vos bras
Égorger vos fils, vos compagnes!

Aux armes, citoyens,
Formez vos bataillons,
Marchons, marchons!
Qu'un sang impur
Abreuve nos sillons!

Que veut cette horde d'esclaves,
De traîtres, de rois conjurés?
Pour qui ces ignobles entraves,
Ces fers dès longtemps préparés? (bis)
Français, pour nous, ah! quel outrage
Quels transports il doit exciter!
C'est nous qu'on ose méditer
De rendre à l'antique esclavage!

Aux armes, citoyens…

Quoi! des cohortes étrangères
Feraient la loi dans nos foyers!
Quoi! Ces phalanges mercenaires
Terrasseraient nos fiers guerriers! (bis)
Grand Dieu! Par des mains enchaînées
Nos fronts sous le joug se ploieraient
De vils despotes deviendraient
Les maîtres de nos destinées!

Aux armes, citoyens…"

    C’est ironique aujourd hui, n’est-ce pas? Je propose:
    “Allons enfants de la Patrie,
    Le jour d’ UE est arrivé!”

    Le problem est: “Ou est l’egalite mataintenat en France?” – je pense.

  3. Mongoose says:

    Alors, Vive la France, la patrie de la liberte, l’egalite, et la fraternite (presque mais pas toujours).

  4. Bill Herschel says:

    In addition to Pence being a John McCain-style warmonger, his social views would be more acceptable in Saudi Arabia than the United States. He is unfit to be President and would have been eliminated in the first round of Republican primaries. Frankly, I would prefer Jeb Bush.
    Goodbye, Donald. I hope you don’t win.

    100 years after Verdun and now in the city of Nice “tyranny’s bloody standard is raised” once more

  6. Lord Curzon says:

    Reports coming in of what French Police are calling a terrorist attack in Nice, 12+ people reported dead run over by a truck – apparently shots have been fired by the police to stop the driver…

  7. Tyler says:

    I look forward to another 200 post thread where the Fifth Column Enablers on here pontificate about what the shooter’s true motives could be as they moral signal to each other.

  8. Bill Herschel says:

    I have really only one further thing to say, basically ever.
    A rapprochement with Russia is necessary. The longer it is delayed, the more the world will suffer. It is that simple. Given that I will vote for Hillary Clinton, it is my hope that this gets through her thick, corrupt skull.

  9. Haralambos says:

    Current reports give 84:
    This gives a bit of insight into France’s problem:

  10. Babak Makkinejad says:

    They need a rapprochement with Iran and Syrian Arab Republic.
    Russia cannot do anything for them in this particular case.

  11. elaine says:

    I’ve heard conflicted reporting about the weapons in the rear of the truck:
    were they real weapons or “toys”? If they were real was there a way to enter the rear of the truck from the cab? Was the back loader of the truck unlocked?
    Who was the motorcyclists who attempted to enter the cab of the truck @ the beginning of the rampage? So many questions & a heart full of grief for the victims. Please
    pray for the survivors.
