The Scarlet Pimpertool

Posted: June 11, 2011 by veeshir in FAIL Britannia!

During the French Revolution the Brits helped French noblemen escape The Terror. It’s interesting reading stuff like the Scarlet Pimpernel and a Tale of Two Cities to see their attitude toward the French Revolution, the revolutionaries and the former owners of France and her people.

The Brits were helping the people who wanted to keep owning their countrymen, in other words.

I’m not defending the Terror, but the French “nobility” were noble in name only. If ever a crew deserved the guillotine, it was them. Mel Brooks was, if anything, lenient on how cruel and evil they were.

It’s amusing how little things change, now the Brits are helping Frenchman who want their woman to look like the property they want them to be.

British taxpayers are paying for a French Muslim couple to challenge their country’s controversial burkha ban

Still helping the people who want to own others, which is weird for the country that was so big in the anti-slavery trade.
I’ll leave you with a quote from the1982 version.
Sir Percy: He was looking for the Scarlet Pimpernel. I pray he found a fool.
