The Revolution Triumphant

A lavish and luxurious celebration in honor of the overthrow of the "decadent" monarchy. Once again the heirs of the Revolution and new rulers of the people are quite free with the public funds. And yet a faithful husband and father like Louis XVI, who lived and dressed as simply as possible and refused to fire upon his own people, is labelled as "profligate" in the same article. What an outrage. Share

The hypocrites! And then that callous article. "It was to commemorate the storming of the Bastille during the 1789 French Revolution after which the country’s profligate King Louis XVI and his wife Queen Marie Antoinette were beheaded." One can almost hear the subtext "And good riddance."
