I disagree, though I do see many people trying to make the connection.

The French Revolution was a peasant revolution over mistreatment by the gentrified class in power.

What's happening in the US is not grass roots in any way shape or form. It's a Marxist, Socialist movement being funded and supported by people who wish only to take power in the US and remove the representative republic form of government for their socialist globalism goals.

There are billionaires funding these domestic terror organizations who have been buying politicians for many decades and who are spending hundreds of millions of dollars to drive the country to a civil war - which now appears it will be based on a deepening racial divide.

The goal is to create enough chaos that the people will call for a strong, authoritarian government to quell the rebellion, which is the first step toward a social dictatorship. The "people" expect to be able to elect this leadership by popular vote - which is nothing more than mob rule. Look at the attacks on the Electoral College for the tactic they will use. The sending out of unsolicited ballots by the millions to try to prove that "the people" have voted and this is what they want.

The two events have nothing in common.

The parallels are that the people of this nation who quietly do the work, pay the taxes and serve in the military (the 3rd estate) are constantly exploited, harangued and abused by the media (1st estate) and the political class (2nd estate) for basically not being them.

The current soy-boy thugs in Seattle are not the revolutionaries. We will be the revolutionaries once we decide we had had enough.

The liberal idiots calling for a civil war have no idea what they are fomenting.

This crossed my mind a month or so ago, when the movement began to eat itself.

Good post but it wasn't a peasant revolution although the revolutionaries wanted that to be the narrative. More a middle and upper-middle class revolution.

Sadly, that will never happen as long as there's a movie on tv and food in the fridge. If you want to make 'the people' wake up and take back this country, just cut the power for a week or so.

We have Nancy Pelosi, in the role of Marie Antionette..................Let them eat ice cream.

The level of disconnect in the political class, from the productive class is a problem..........it is getting bigger.

Or just shut down their jobs, impose capricious and arbitrary regulations, and inject a constant message of racial discord...for month, after month, after months with no defined end in sight.

Not really the same, can't compare that to this racist crap in anyway.

While I don't think that there was much "racism" during the FR per-say, I do believe that there was a lot of bigotry in general during it. Which can be linked in a way to our current divide.
