FIFA: Re-Elect Blatter

Booooo!

Unfrickenbelievable.

FIFA is whacked. Looks like Asia and Africa voted in majority for this corrupt individual.

Ok UEFA. Over to you. You said you would break away if Blatter was elected.

Let's see you make good.

A good start would be to boycott Qatar.

I'm pretty sure if they and CONMEBOL boycotted their fans would support them.

I have zero respect or regard for FIFA at this point even given UEFA and CONMEBOL aren't exaclty pristine organizations.

Blatter says he wants to fix FIFA. Where the frick has been in the four previous terms? What was he doing?

Don't answer. It's meant to be rhetorical.

I Will Not Watch The 2022 World Cup; Sepp Blatter Must Step Down Immediately

And neither should anyone else for that matter.

An absolute disgrace and criminal enterprise that has led to deaths and will continue to do so in a country with excessive hot temperatures and no soccer culture of any kind.

Fuck FIFA and its corruption for giving the World Cup to Qatar. Cleaning up the mess means Blatter must resign as FIFA President. If he cares so deeply for the game as he claims, then this is the only proper course at this point with a criminal investigation now underway. And can I know how on God's green earth Blatter not among those investigated? Nothing gets done in FIFA without his tacit approval. He has more power than any political official in the world.

At this point, I don't see how Qatar and FIFA hold the World Cup given all the corruption that's taken place.

Time to perhaps hand it over to someone else.

Daily Derp From Japan To Methodists

"First, it would create a third-party panel of experts to investigate claims of hate speech against the city’s residents. If the claims are considered legitimate, the city would make public the names of individuals or groups engaged in such acts."

No matter how hard they try to make gold from shit through their myopic intellectual diarrhea, the left will forever be useless and pointless in the West's forward progress. 

Apparently, the Jews have killed enough Palestinians through official genocide to approach the levels of what the Nazis did to the Jews in which six million (nearly half of their population) were murdered. Never mind that the Palestinian population has, what, quadrupled in the last 40 or 50 years?

Yes. Let's equate the two.

Jesus save me. We're in serious trouble with idiots like this walking among us.

It's amazing how they refuse to look at the role of the Arabs in the mistreatment of Palestinians.

***

Okay. Here's how I see thing unfolding.

What's probably going to happen is left-wing progressives will continue to twist and ruin the facts of history to the point of not being able to distinguish between fact and myth where they will bleed into one.

Once that happens there will be a final 'darkening' (I happen to feel we're in an intellectual dark age) where the truth will wallow in nothingness awaiting rediscovery; a New Renaissance once the books are dusted off.

They will imagine how in the world such meek and weak minds could have exerted so much influence.

It's one way I see this unfolding.

Quote Of The Day: Of Death, Blood And Boom

"And then, thanks to World War II, we finally got the demand boost we needed, and all those supposedly unqualified workers — not to mention Rosie the Riveter — turned out to be quite useful in the modern economy, if given a chance. "

Holy crap! Demand boost on the backs of 100 million dead? Is this guy for real? Let's go blow shit up because economic boom!

".To pick just one of countless examples, there was a White House summit on health care in 2010. The president invited members of Congress to discuss the issue in good faith. He then proceeded to treat every concern, objection, and argument from Republicans as dumb, dishonest, or emotional. They were, according to a column by Milbank, “stepping into Prof. Obama’s classroom.” Milbank marveled at how the “teacher” treated them all “like his undisciplined pupils.” Whenever someone said anything politically inconvenient, the president replied that those were just partisan “talking points.”

What if they are indeed "dumb, dishonest and emotional? Ever tink of dat? Hm?

I recently purchased a 12 gallon compressor at Sears. While I was pleased to get it for $80 off the list price because it was a floor demo, I was still uneasy for some reason. The salesman (if you can call him that) assured me all the pieces were in place.

Unfortunately, when I brought my toy home my brother-in-law noticed it was missing a small oil cap which is easy to miss.

No big deal. Just go to Sears and get one, right? Ha,ha. When I got there, some poor shmuck was overwhelmed in the Craftsmen department but was accounting for himself quite well. Originally he informed me I had to call Sears parts to get it. When I called them, they sling-shot me back to his department. Surprised, he took initiative and said he would order me the piece. Mission accomplished with little blood and sweat shed.

I waited a few days and called to follow up regarding the status of the order. He informed me he could in fact not do it and that I had to call Sears parts department. Mildly annoyed I did.

The piece was $4. Shipping $20. This is when I laid into the representative for the utter unprofessional and clueless process Sears has customers go through. Not only did they sell me a product missing a piece, nobody wanted to take ownership following some stupid policy of 'it's not me' nonsense. Not one person stepped up to say, 'sorry sir, we will pay the shipping.'

I'm thinking of going back to Sears to show them the bill and insist they pay for it but I don't know if I feel like going back to waste my time only to be told some idiotic excuse why they can't.

I don't need the stress.

The once iconic Sears should change their name to Putz.

The way I see it, if you go through life demanding trigger warnings, I think you have deeper psychological issues.

"...The clinical psychologist Barbara O. Rothbaum and her colleagues assessed the symptoms of 95 survivors of rape or attempted rape over the course of several months. Although 94 percent of the women met symptomatic criteria for PTSD about two weeks after the trauma, that number dropped to 65 percent after approximately one month and to 47 percent after approximately three months. The data indicate that about half of rape survivors recover naturally from PTSD within three months of the assault. "

"...Trigger warnings are designed to help survivors avoid reminders of their trauma, thereby preventing emotional discomfort. Yet avoidance reinforces PTSD. Conversely, systematic exposure to triggers and the memories they provoke is the most effective means of overcoming the disorder."

 Should that have come with a trigger warning?

***

Why does Thomas Sowell make so much sense?

And writing for a Jewish journal! The shock! The horror!

"Totally ignored was the fact that a black policeman in Alabama fatally shot an unarmed white teenager, and was cleared of any charges, at about the same time that a white policeman was cleared of charges in the fatal shooting of Michael Brown.
In a world where the truth means so little, and headstrong preconceptions seem to be all that matter, what hope is there for rational words or rational behavior, much less mutual understanding across racial lines?"

"...The "legacy of slavery" argument is not just an excuse for inexcusable behavior in the ghettos. In a larger sense, it is an evasion of responsibility for the disastrous consequences of the prevailing social vision of our times, and the political policies based on that vision, over the past half century..."

It's not the protest or strikes per se the problem.

It's the mind set and narrative behind it that's worrisome.

“...Nonsense!” the critics reply. “Only the rich can afford to work for no money and therefore nobody should be allowed to do so.”

A federal contest to design a logo for Canada’s 150th birthday sparked a furious online protest under the slogan “My Time Has Value.” The winner of the contest would have received $5,000 and a certain amount of valuable exposure, but the losers would not have won anything, in spite of having worked for some period of time, and that, according to the protesters, is unacceptable.

Similar online campaigns attempt to shame anyone who would ask a musician to perform at an event without offering decent monetary compensation. No, we are told, “exposure” is not compensation. Can’t the musician make that determination? No, and it’s wrong even to ask.

I’m sometimes told that I go too far afield in drawing these comparisons. Sure, a minority of students want to be paid to go to school, but in 2012 they were protesting a tuition increase and now they’re protesting “austerity” and that’s it—there’s no point reading more into it.

But the same could have been said, only a few years ago, about the very idea of a “student strike”—ask someone from outside Quebec!—whereas now it’s becoming commonplace. The leader of the opposition wants it to be formalized in law. A change in terminology becomes a legislative change before you know it.
"

If we don’t fight this pernicious tendency now, we might very well come to regret it later.

Of course this is not true. NRA members are, like most organizations, have differing opinions. But as far as I can tell, the NRA doesn't support additional legislation taking the position there are already enough restrictions and feel those should be enforced.

Far cry from 'guns for anyone, anywhere - no questions asked.'

More facts on the NRA. The more you know...

"...In 1934, the NRA supported the National Firearms Act, which served to regulate and tax firearms that were considered used by gangsters at the time. They also supported the Gun Control Act of 1968, which expanded on the system to license firearm dealers and prohibit criminals and those with mental impairments from owning firearms."

"While African Americans were being terrorized by the Ku Klux Klan, where the Klan were sometimes aided by local law enforcement, the NRA setup charters to help train local African American communities to be able protect themselves. The most prominent case being in 1960 in Monroe, N.C. where the local National Association for the Advancement of Colored People head Robert Williams also chartered an NRA Rifle Club that successully defended an assault on one of their leader's homes by the KKK without casualties."

"According to FactCheck.org, nearly half of the funding for the NRA comes from membership dues alone...." (Isn't that usually the case with non-progressive entities? They have full support voluntary support of people)

"...The NRA's current stance on gun control is to enforce existing laws more aggressively. In 2008, in response to the Virgina Tech shooting, the NRA helped to pass the "NICS Improvement Act," which would provide increased funding and grants to states to report vital information to the National Instant Background Check System (NICS), such as mental health. The NICS is used for background checks of potential gun buyers. Unfortunately, the system has been woefully underfunded (receiving only 5.3% of the authorized funding) and reporting has been lackluster. In addition, the NRA has pointed out that those who lie on their background checks when purchasing firearms are for the most part not prosecuted. In response to this, Vice President Biden claimed that they "don't have the time" to prosecute such violations, which, by the way, carries a minimum 5 year federal sentence, if convicted under the Gun Control Act of 1968."

The NRA clearly has a rich history in American life. It really is a shame how it's being depicted these days all for a narrow issue.

T.C's Advice: Whatever

Remember kids. Saying 'whatever' in a debate is weak. Avoid it.

It wreaks of an arrogant tone implying the person who uses it knows better.

It's been my experience the sort of mind who insert it in a debate often possess little or no valid arguments. It's akin to rolling your eyes on someone.

God I loathe people who do that. It's infuriating and insulting.

And you look like a dumb ass when you do that.

Quote Of The Day

"...Mass civil disobedience as a new stage of struggle can transmute the deep rage of the ghetto into a constructive and creative force. To dislocate the functioning of a city without destroying it can be more effective than a riot because it can be longer lasting, costly to the larger society but not wantonly destructive. Finally, it is a device of social action that is more difficult for the government to quell by superior force.

The limitation of riots, moral questions aside, is that they cannot win and their participants know it. Hence, rioting is not revolutionary but reactionary because it invites defeat. It involves an emotional catharsis but it must be followed by a sense of futility."

Martin Luther King, Jr.  Conscience for Change, Massey Lectures 1967.

***

Of course, Reverend King was correct. A natural wisdom and understanding of history that permitted him to assess human nature with a sober and smart mind.

Today?

What to the nouveau-pseudo intellectuals, media and political masters focus on? Words.

Citizens are burning their own communities down and what do we hear? That it's racist to call them thugs.

How this doesn't strike a sensible mind as being vacuous designed to detract from the violent actions, is something that befuddles me.

They mistakenly, in their infinite ignorance and determination to detract from the truth and reality, and obsessively attempt to change or amend the vocabulary and vernacular.

This is like putting cologne to deal with body odor.

The riots we have seen in post-Luther America are the strict domain of thugs and criminals - and a few misguided souls to be sure - for as the Reverend King pointed out, they know it's not productive.

And the media and politicians and pundits alike who childishly scream we must change the vocabulary are complicit in this reactionary act; this lie.

“Who’s responsible for the immigrants who come and settle in Quebec?” he asked rhetorically. “It’s the federal government. It’s true it’s a shared jurisdiction, but they swear allegiance to the Queen.
“So we don’t have 25 years before us. It’s now that we have to get to work. It’s right now that we have to ask Quebeckers the question and make all the proper efforts to convince them.”

This from a guy who once said to shareholders:

“I firmly believe that companies that do not have a global vision do not have a future.”

When it suits him, he's a man of the world.

Except for Quebec. Quebec has to remain the stagnant and insular entity in order to seize control.

Let's just say he's more of a attention-seeking opportunists than a visionary.

A Peladeau led PQ would be a one-way ticket to Smallerville.

Alternate View On Omar Khadr

From Le Quebecois Libre:

"Now that Khadr is a free man—of sorts—perhaps he will have a chance to demonstrate whether he is indeed a victim of circumstance or the caricature of evil described by his critics. In his first public appearance after his release, he came across as articulate, thoughtful, and entirely unthreatening. If Khadr manages to build a normal life for himself and becomes a productive and peaceful member of Canadian society, it could go a long way toward changing the minds of those who see the war on terror as a Manichean conflict between the US and its allies who can do no wrong and the forces of darkness who are pure evil. If Omar Khadr—the poster-child for Dick Cheney’s shameless lie that Guantanamo Bay housed the “worst of the worst”—turns out not to have horns and cloven feet, then perhaps the entire edifice of the war on terror is rotten. And maybe—just maybe—the best way to prevent terrorism and keep us safe is not to pursue endless war and adopt draconian legal codes, but simply to mind our own business and engage with foreigners not through violence but instead only through voluntary cooperation."

A thought take on Khadr. As contemptible his parents were - and there's indeed something to be said of having been thrust into such a violent situation as a 15 year-old was unfair - he is a Canadian citizen and deserves to rebuild his image and life.

Are we not an enlightened society that believes in second chance?

I got the same impression when I listened to him. I know. You never know and I walk the 'useful idiot' line but the whole affair was mishandled by both the USA and Canada.

Time to move on.

Quote Of The Day

"Understand, climate change did not cause the conflicts we see around the world. Yet what we also know is that severe drought helped to create the instability in Nigeria that was exploited by the terrorist group Boko Haram. It’s now believed that drought and crop failures and high food prices helped fuel the early unrest in Syria, which descended into civil war in the heart of the Middle East."
-Obama

Except the weather in Nigeria hasn't changed all that much for quite some times. This anti-intellectual shtick of assigning climate change to all sorts of global problems and issues is rather discomforting and disturbing. Who in their right logical mind would correlate Boko Haram's rise and violence to climate? It's almost as if we've become incapable of understanding such organizations for what they are.

I'm getting the distinct feeling Obama, faced with an uncooperative Congress while mired in a state of lame-duckness, is just gonna speak from the heart. And as we saw with his speech to Coast Guard graduates, it's immature as it is unprofessional as it is irresponsible.

I mean, to flat out claim climate change erodes national security is waaaay out there.

You Oughta Help



There's plenty of evidence that humans are naturally 'communistic' creatures. That is, they voluntarily come to help thy neighbors. The idea that we must have the state interfere on our behalf is a fairly recent phenomena. This political socialism has proven to, if anything, bring much misery through coercion. Even its benign 'democratic' form has not provided the results intended. And therein lies a huge problem. Whenever confronted with the reality (backed by statistics) we choose to throw more money at a problem rather than offer any meaningful or innovative solutions so committed to the progressive collective. Make no mistake about it, ours - the West- has been a progressive experiment for well over 100 years now. The so-called 'neo-liberal' policies are more the exception than the rule.

***

I do not accept the notion of redistributive wealth without proper consent. Admittedly, I sway to and fro with the concept of 'the wisdom of crowds'; the notion that a majority of people possess the wisdom for our collective mutual benefit. I reckon this may be plausible in certain instances but how could seven out of 10 people actually profess to understand or know the particular and personal circumstance of the other three?

And as the video argues, where the minority resist, is it 'fair' or just to use force against them thus violating their rights; nay, moral conscience?

Currently, in contemporary times, we're witnessing tyranny of the majority. Be it Christian bakers being mauled by lynch mobs, cartoonists merely depicting a religious figure in ways not accepted to some, to people who absolutely can't tolerate other views (and I squarely and frankly assert the left are the worst offenders of such anti-intellectual that directly threaten civil liberties) publicly shaming them on social media and campuses.

Freedom of speech and expression is a preciously young concept. It must be defended at every turn.

The Detroit Red Wings name and its roots in Montreal.

"Norris had been a member of the Montreal Amateur Athletic Association, a sporting club with cycling roots. The MAAA's teams were known by their club emblem and these Winged Wheelers were the first winners of the Stanley Cup in 1893. Norris decided that a version of their logo was perfect for a team playing in the Motor City and on October 5, 1932 the club was renamed the Red Wings."

"My area of research is in Whiteness Studies and Critical Discourse Analysis, explicating how Whiteness is reproduced in everyday discourse. 

“I grew up poor and white.  While my class oppression has been relatively visible to me, my race privilege has not.  In my efforts to uncover how race has shaped my life, I have gained deeper insight by placing race in the center of my analysis and asking how each of my other group locations have socialized me to collude with racism. In so doing, I have been able to address in greater depth my multiple locations and how they function together to hold racism in place. I now make the distinction that I grew up poor and white, for my experience of poverty would have been different had I not been white”

Oregon has lost its fucking mind.

Judge orders $135 000 fine to be paid by bakery who refused to serve gay couple.

".Rachel Bowman-Cryer should collect $75,000 and her wife, Laurel Bowman-Cryer, $60,000 from the owners of Sweet Cakes by Melissa, an administrative law judge for the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries said in a proposed order released Friday, April 24."

These two clowns should receive jack shit. I guess the judge isn't worried want kind of precedent this can set. If I'm an unscrupulous gay couple (and I'm pretty sure they exist) I'm ambulance chasing this to the bank. Why not? Pieces of shits like Sharpton and Jackson have made cynical, opportunistic and evil careers out of it.

The judge, furthermore, and this goes for people who support this crap of demanding people act against their conscience, is fine with destroying a family's source of income. When you ruin a business, you take away a family's ability to live and when you do this you weaken your community.

So in this way, the judge can go rot in a hole somewhere.

The U.S. under Kissinger supported the Kurds? This scholar seems to think so.

"...In his forthcoming book, Sold Out? US Foreign Policy, Iraq, the Kurds, and the Cold War, Gibson rejects claims that the US backed Iraq’s 1963 coup and says the US was more supportive of Kurd forces in their 1970s battles with Baghdad than was previously thought.


“From 1958-75, US foreign policy in Iraq was designed to prevent it becoming a Soviet satellite,” Gibson told Rudaw. “This led to a series of covert operations to support groups inside Iraq that were opposed to Moscow’s imperial designs, like the Baath Party in the early 1960s and the Kurds in the 1970s.”

According to Gibson, the CIA and President John F Kennedy’s administration are widely-viewed to have backed the February 1963 Baath Party coup that toppled Iraqi Prime Minister Abd al-Karim Qasim and paved the way for Saddam Hussein’s eventual rise to power.

“Declassified documents and interviews with former CIA officials, who had been involved in plotting against the Qasim regime, raise questions about the extent of US involvement in the 1963 coup,” said Gibson, a former London School of Economics scholar..."

“...It was previously thought that the US had willfully sold the Kurds out, but declassified documents suggest that the US, Secretary of State Henry Kissinger in particular, was actually more committed to the Kurds than previously believed,” Gibson said."

"...There is no question that parts of the US government were opposed to the Kurdish intervention, but Kissinger showed no interest in scaling back US support for the Kurds and, on more than one occasion, increased US assistance to the Kurds despite resistance from the CIA,” Gibson said."

With the advent of European Central Bank quantitative easing, what began four months ago when 10-year Swiss yields turned negative for the first time has snowballed into a veritable avalanche of negative rates across European government bond markets. In the hunt for apparently “safe assets”, investors have thrown caution to the wind, and collectively determined to pay governments for the privilege of lending to them. 

On a country by country basis, the statistics are even more startling. According to investment bank Jefferies, some 70pc of all German bunds now trade on a negative yield. In France, it's 50pc, and even in Spain, which was widely thought insolvent only a few years ago, it's 17pc."

Germany isn't exactly in great shape either.

More tyranny by PC zealots on college campuses:

"...Leaders with the Student Government Association at Youngstown State University said they decided to act quickly this week when posters showed up on campus promoting “Straight Pride” week next month.

The posters contained profanity, which our station has blurred for viewers. The posters promote the event as a way of not showing the differences between students.

Campus leaders said while they believe the posters were meant more as satire, especially since no names were associated with them, they determined the flyers went too far with their message.

“When you are talking about minority activism, it is very easy that if you are in the majority to say ‘well, this sort of activism is not necessary. This sort of zeal in your activism is over the top.’ For minorities who experience discrimination, that is not the case,” Student Government Vice President Jacob Schriner-Biggs said.

After consulting with the Vice President of Student Life, it was decided to take the posters down, not necessarily because of its topic but because of the coarse language."

I weep because some of these idiots will manage to somehow be in positions of real power taking decisions.

The forgotten racial attitudes of Woodrow Wilson.

"...Wilson is widely and correctly remembered — and represented in our history books — as a progressive Democrat who introduced many liberal reforms at home and fought for the extension of democratic liberties and human rights abroad.  But on the issue of race his legacy was, in fact, regressive and has been largely forgotten.

Born in Virginia and raised in Georgia and South Carolina, Wilson was a loyal son of the old South who regretted the outcome of the Civil War.  He used his high office to reverse some of its consequences.  When he entered the White House a hundred years ago today, Washington was a rigidly segregated town — except for federal government agencies.  They had been integrated during the post-war Reconstruction period, enabling African-Americans to obtain federal jobs and work side by side with whites in government agencies.  Wilson promptly authorized members of his cabinet to reverse this long-standing policy of racial integration in the federal civil service.

Cabinet heads — such as his son-in-law, Secretary of the Treasury William McAdoo of Tennessee – re-segregated facilities such as restrooms and cafeterias in their buildings.  In some federal offices, screens were set up to separate white and black workers.  African-Americans found it difficult to secure high-level civil service positions, which some had held under previous Republican administrations.

A delegation of black professionals led by Monroe Trotter, a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Harvard and Boston newspaper editor, appeared at the White House to protest the new policies.  But Wilson treated them rudely and declared that “segregation is not a humiliation but a benefit, and ought to be so regarded by you gentlemen.”

How in the world did African-Americans come to support Democrats?

Pen's 145 Can Go Fuck Themselves

No seriously.

You're a bunch of assholes. Do you care whenever Christianity (Piss Christ anyone?) or Jews and Judaism are attacked.

Of course not. Because you're hypocritical assholes.

This is the exact same mindset that appeased Hitler, praised communists as they murdered their way through Europe and defended Mao.

It takes a remarkable world view to deliberately ignore satire when it comes to Islam.

Fucken sickening. 

But BRAVO to The Daily Beast. A liberal site I thoroughly have come to respect for their integrity:

"Charlie Hebdo would seem a rather obvious choice for a prize celebrating journalistic courage, considering the newspaper was firebombed in 2011 for producing cartoons satirizing militant Islam, lived with a heavy—but not heavy enough—security presence, and continued to raise a middle finger to those who threatened its journalists with death. But the award was an obvious choice that annoyed more than 200 PEN members—including Eric Bogosian, Wallace Shawn, Junot Diaz, and Peter Carey—who responded to the honor with a campaign of defamation against the dead. Charlie stood accused of, among other sins, trading in “selectively offensive material: material that intensifies the anti-Islamic, anti-Maghreb, anti-Arab sentiments already prevalent in the Western world.”

It was an odd sight; gauche caviar left-wing writers aligning themselves against slain soixante-huitard left-wing cartoonists, all while expressing sympathy with “devout” religious conservatives “humiliated” and “suffering” because of silly drawings from a low-circulation satirical newspaper."

AMEN, pal. Amen.

The Cult Of Scaredy-Cat Nut Cases

From foie gras to sugar to salt to plastic bags to guns. From homeopath products to coffee to alcohol and cigarettes to recycling. From GMO to climate change to vaccines. From race to racialism. From music lyrics to classic novels and films that offend contemporary sensitive sensibilities to the attack and sometimes destruction of freedom of speech. Never mind the disturbing trend of reversing our hallowed maxim of innocent until proven guilty. Nope. Now, it's all burn them at the stake before the facts come in.
 
It's a culture of fear and control (usually in the incompetent and nonsensical form of bans (for our own good), caps and trades (with negligible results and impact on the environment but a boon for eco-profiteers), taxes that help to spawn create black markets etc). Always has been. Once upon a time we were terrified of gods, witches, technology, and Jews (well, we still are apparently). We just made a trade is all. We're far more ambitious with this climate change thing.

Point is. Aspirin (and Crestor) works.

Irrational behavior (always masked in self-righteous crap or scientific jargon) is a key feature of humanity. Guys like Bloomberg are nanny-ninnies who seek to control in the name of protecting. In the end, all they contribute to the 'greater good' is irrationalism. Often graduating into surreal logic and behavior.

Release your inner reason I say. Appeal to your basic logic free of emotional input. No?

It also seems to happen quite a bit in capitalist systems. But I digress.

Nevertheless, be careful. Be very afraid.

The Law Of Suspects And 145 Intellectuals

How 145 intellectuals can be so stupid is beyond me. Quite frankly, I'm tired of pointing out why the way these people think is bankrupt, dangerous and plain wrong.

145 useless twats is what they are. 

We just have to keep fighting and forging forward.

I'll leave this here as a reminder:

"This law, passed on 17 September 1793, authorized the creation of revolutionary tribunals to try those suspected of treason against the Republic and to punish those convicted with death. This legislation in effect made the penal justice system into the enforcement arm of the revolutionary government, which would now set as its primary responsibility not only the maintenance of public order but also the much more difficult and controversial task of identifying internal enemies of the Republic—such as "profiteers" who violated the Maximum—and then removing them from the citizenry, where they might subvert the general will.


1. Immediately after the publication of the present decree, all suspects within the territory of the Republic and still at large, shall be placed in custody.
2. The following are deemed suspects:
1– those who, by their conduct, associations, comments, or writings have shown themselves partisans of tyranny or federalism and enemies of liberty"

They are enemies of liberty. Simple as that.
