The French revolution murdered tens of thousands of people. Many of them were priests -- even priests who had supported the revolution fell to The Terror. But they knew enough to not destroy Notre Dame.
In 1944, Adolf Hilter wanted Paris burned as his forces were driven out.
The military, however, knew better, and did nothing. If they had burned Paris to the ground, they feared that their lives would be forfeit. Considering the conclusion of the war, it was a smart play on their part. The Nazis knew not to destroy Notre Dame.
Modern day is not so smart.
2019 has seen a rash of destruction of Catholic churches throughout France. It's countrywide.
There are only two real culprits.
The first is the same people from 1792. I don't care if you call them Robespierre or "Occupy" or whatever form the commie bastards are choosing this week, they're all the same pricks. They're anti-theist, they're nasty, and they have no qualms about destroying the past to further their agenda. In fact, the destruction of the past and the Church itself is part of their plan for success.
The second group of the usual suspects .... is exactly who you're thinking they are. If you're one of the few people who can't guess, some hints.
They like destroying other people's iconography (like big Buddhist statues)
They're responsible for trashing parts of Germany (like Hamburg on New Year's)
They've gotten a free pass in Europe for years because to arrest them for their crimes would be "racist against migrants."
That's right! The Amish!
No, of course not. I kid. I mean the Jews.
Oh, did I say that out loud? Sorry. I've been listening to Congresswoman Omar lately.
I meant Muslims.
Look at that blaze and you tell me that went from zero to sixty before the fire department could reach them, and you tell me with a straight face that it's not arson. Given how many churches have been trashed this year alone in France, to ask me to consider that it's NOT arson is an insult to my intelligence.
To the people who did this, I ask that you read these books [Amazon link to his novels] and learn what your fate will be. You want to play by these rules? I war gamed the outcome.
Whoever did this will burn. We know the French are too cowardly to arrest the real perps (with luck, they'll have a quiet accident).
But that's what Hell is for.
