Ah yes, in the minds of America’s domestic enemies we a the deplorables, as Hillary suitably and dutifully labeled us. Perhaps though, Hillary and those she supposedly represents should have better studied history and what can happen when the deplorables have had enough. After all, 222 years and 1 continent shouldn’t be too far for them to look.

Perhaps they need a reminder that the Girondins failed and that a Jacobinian solution is not something that we oh-so-deplorable churls automatically balk at. Perhaps it’s time for Americans to put the ways of Brissot behind us and adopt those of Robespierre.

Liberté, Égalité, Pureté
