Progressives Again Call for 'Revolutionary Justice' After GOP Comments on Unemployed

An update to "Progressives Cheer Mark Madoff Suicide as 'Revolutionary Justice' ."

Turns out that the
DownWithTyranny! progressives are invoking revolutionary appeals again. A ten-point roster of GOP quotes on the unemployed and public benefits actually ends with Marie Antoinette's famous line, "Let them eat cake." And then the progressive response:
Now we know that Marie Antoinette was expressing the modern-day Republican philosophy centuries in advance. And what happened to her?
This is another one of those times where I take progressives at their word. Republicans aren't Bourbons, but radical leftists would love the same dénouement:

Via Memeorandum with more progressive extremism at Digby's.

The misnamed "Progressives" are as ignorant of history as anything else. Marie Antoinette never said "Let them eat cake," it was an anti-royalist piece of propaganda. Let them start a revolution...!

Three years ago I stood next to the spot where Marie Antoinette was guillotined, a despicable act of a radical mob of human trash. It was at the Place de la Concorde, then renamed Place de la Revolution. Where the guillotine once stood now stands the Obelisk of Luxor, a gift to France from Egypt in 1829.
