Editor’s Note: How often do we hear that religion is the central villain in all of history’s wars and holocausts. If only mankind could jettison God, how much better off would we be, runs this line of malarkey which ignores the atheist-Communist holocausts in China, Russia and Eastern Europe that collectively killed more than 100 million people. In 18th century France the masonic French revolutionaries committed a little-known genocide against Catholics in the Vendée region. Here is a rare account of this secularist holocaust.
Vendée French call for revolutionary massacre to be termed ‘genocide’
It was one of the most infamous episodes of the bloody French Revolution.
In early 1794 – at the height of the Reign of Terror – French soldiers marched to the Atlantic Vendée, where peasants had risen up against the Revolutionary government in Paris.
Twelve “infernal columns” commanded by General Louis-Marie Turreau were ordered to kill everyone and everything they saw. Thousands of people – including women and children – were massacred in cold blood, and farms and villages torched.
