Mademoiselle Blanche Monnier: May 23, 1901, a police commissioner forced the door of a house from Poitiers and discovered in a dark room with shutters locked a woman lying on a bed in the midst of filth. Immediately a rumor through the city: the unfortunate Blanche Monnier, was kidnapped by his family for twenty-five years, following a thwarted love. The national press got hold of the news, and L'Illustration does not hesitate to publish a monstrous picture, which shows a gaunt creature, with abundant black hair hiding her nakedness.

The Miserable Incarceration of Blanche Monnier

A Truly Sad, Despicable, Wretched Story about a Poor Young Woman

Do you ever feel a little bit claustrophobic from sitting the office a bit too long?

Now, imagine you were confined to a room smaller than your cubicle for 25 years. There is no light, no central heating or air conditioning. The only food you eat are scraps from someone else’s table and your only friends, the rats who scavenge what little crumbs that fall to the stony floor. Mademoiselle Blanche Monnier experienced this for a quarter of a century. The most shocking thing about this? It was Blanche’s mother who imprisoned her.

While it looks like something from an old horror movie, the above is a real photo taken in 1901 of Blanche Monnier, a French woman who was imprisoned in a padlocked room for 25 years prior to being discovered. Monnier was initially imprisoned by her mother and brother because they didn’t approve of her marrying an attorney she was in love with. Years later, even after the object of her affection had died, the mother and brother still refused to free her.

May 23, 1901, following a denunciation by an anonymous letter, the Attorney General of Poitiers ordered a search of Louise Monnier, widow of a former dean of the Faculty of Letters. On the second floor of a mansion from the city center, the central Commissioner discovered a skeletal woman, completely naked, lying on a rotten bench amid his excrement. This is White’s daughter, Mrs. Monnier. It would be sequestered by his family for twenty five years…

This discovery ignited the city. How, indeed, imagine that a mother can have the barbarity of locking his daughter to abandon the hunger and suffering? How imagine that such torture can last a quarter century without anyone cares? What crime had committed the unfortunate to suffer such a punishment?

The press immediately seized of the news. While different organs Republicans and monarchists take the opportunity to settle accounts, a journalist from the local press overcomes their quarrels to conduct its own investigation.

Sweating and chanting couple asked to leave aircraft

When it comes to suspicious behaviour this couple raised four red flags but as usual CAIR, the well-funded American centre of Islamic legal jihad has gone into bat for them. I believe that CAIR’s intention, in this case, is the same as their intention when they defended ” Clock boy”, the Muslim boy who scared his teachers by bringing what looked like a bomb to school. CAIR want to make people too frightened of crippling legal fees to take action when a Muslim does something suspicious.

It is already working as after a number of terrorist attacks neighbours and workmates of the terrorists have told media that they were suspicious of the actions of the terrorist but didn’t say anything because they didn’t want to be labelled racists.

…Faisal Ali and his wife, Nazia had boarded a Cincinnati bound Delta Air Lines flight in Paris, France. The plane sat on the tarmac for about 45 minutes. During that time, several flight attendants noticed that the husband was sweating, hiding his phone, and that both he and his wife were chanting “Allah” repeatedly. It made the flight attendants uncomfortable, reports the Independent UK.

All female French ISIS terrorist group shows that girls can do anything

QUESTION: What do you get when you mix a barbaric backward ideology with the freedom and feminism of the West?

ANSWER: The world’s first ever female jihadi cell.

A FRENCH teenager shot by cops was part of France’s first ever all-female ISIS terror cell which planned to attack the Gare du Nord train station in Paris this week, it was alleged today.

Ines M. – whose full surname has not been revealed – was one of three women suspected of setting up a terror cell in Boussy-Saint-Antoine, south of the French capital.

The dramatic revelation came as the packed Gare du Nord was evacuated this evening as a bomb squad detonated a suspicious package with the city on high alert.

Busto de Isabela de Godin en Saint Amand Montrond.

Busto de Isabela de Godin en Saint Amand Montrond.

Madame Isabela Godin des Odonais

Isabel Godin des Odonais became famous for being the only survivor of a 42-person, 3000-mile expedition through the Amazon Basin to rejoin her husband

Isabela Godin des Odonais was an 18th-century woman who became separated from her husband in South America by colonial politics, and was not reunited with him until more than 20 years later. Her long journey, from western Peru to the mouth of the Amazon River, is without equal in the history of South America. Her story has been often repeated and inspired popular misconceptions of the dangers of the tropical rain forest.

In 1749, her husband, Jean Godin des Odonais, left their home in Riobamba, Ecuador, Spanish South America to visit French Guiana. As a French citizen, he was refused permission by the Spanish and Portuguese authorities to return for his family.

Isabela arrived in France from Guiana in 1773, and for months her tale of wifely devotion was the talk of every salon in Paris. For good reason, as the story of this tale of an amazing Amazonian odyssey shows. A remarkable story, it takes Jean Godin on a French scientific expedition to Peru in 1735 and six years later he marries the thirteen-year-old daughter of the Spanish governor. Godin’s plan to take his wife, Isabela, and their young family to France originates in nostalgia, but his sense of responsibility as well as adventure prompts him to first test the possibility of crossing the Andes, travelling the length of the Amazon, and sailing to French Guiana. He succeeds, but only after 20 years of petitions to the Portuguese government for passage will Godin’s wife undertake the same 3,000-mile journey—and encounter a series of jungle horrors and river tragedies that will reduce her party of 42 to her half-mad self, starving and alone.

Another perspective of France’s intentions regarding the Burqa and the Burkini

The below article is another perspective of France’s intentions regarding the Burqa and the Burkini. It is not arguing right or wrong but attempts to explain the French perspective. Only you the reader can decide whether the French perspective is moral or not.

This goes back to the philosophical issue of the tolerance of intolerance, or more broadly of whether objective moral truths exist or not. Western democracies, such as France, have self-determined that there are objective moral truths in the universe, of which include concepts of non-intervention (on the person, and when possible); of personal freedom; and of religious freedom.

The problem, however, is that western democratic philosophies don’t have room in them for unlimited freedom or tolerance. Some things may not be tolerated. This is lost on many observers of western democratic philosophy, especially the uninformed who see the Bill of Rights and incorrectly assume that the protections and tolerances they afford are unlimited (which is not the case; there are many exceptions in place, both legally and ethically, concerning the rights laid out in that particular document). As an example relating specifically to religious tolerance, even a “deeply held” religious belief in the spiritual power of snake handling is not protected in the States because of the great risk untrained professionals have, both towards themselves and others, of injury when handling snakes.

While Terrorists teach their children how to kill, France teaches theirs how to hide The children of the IS are taught from craddle to grave to kill infidels, they live to one day kill an infidel. The children of the IS are taught from cradle to grave to kill infidels, they live to one day kill an infidel.

It is a tragedy that all the French education system can offer their children as protection from terrorism is first-aid training and hiding techniques.  Teachers should be armed and trained  and armed guards posted at every school. Terrorists are cowards and  always choose soft targets.  Gun free zones are their preference so the French should arm every school.  If the threat is real enough for them to be doing these drills then they should be serious enough about their children’s safety to take the war to the terrorists.  Hiding is not going to protect children from bombs or gunfire but  armed teachers and guards will.

It is the beginning of the end for French Women’s freedom

The Burkini ban is over before it could even start.The French have already surrendered to Sharia law. Once again the democratic laws of equality and freedom of religion have been twisted and used by the followers of anti-democratic and anti-women Sharia law to their advantage. Within a decade it will be a lone French woman bravely wearing a bikini on a French beach. She will stand out, surrounded by burkini clad non-Muslim and Muslim women alike. She will feel the pressure to conform and hostile Muslim male eyes will be upon her. “Slut” they will call out, ” Prostitute!” “She is asking to be raped,” they will say amongst themselves, ” she is being provocative,” they will whisper and the lone French woman will feel the fear and wonder when it all went so horribly wrong for France.

False equivalency used to defend oppressive swimwear


Juxtaposed photos go viral after police seen ordering woman to remove burqini on French beach WITW STAFF08.24.16 (Twitter)

False equivalency is once again being used by idiots on Twitter who must all be sharing their one remaining brain cell.  When we look at these two photos what do we see?

  1. A  man in authority enforcing the law.
  2. A woman  in a bathing suit having the law enforced on her.

In these two ways, both photos are equivalent but it is the law that is being enforced that is the key difference here and one that the idiots on Twitter are deliberately failing to recognise.

In France it is now the turn of the ” Sunday people “

In France it is now the Christians’ turn to be targeted  for attacks by Islamists. This is not a new phenomenon.There is actually an Arabic Islamist slogan that says “First the Saturday people, then the Sunday people.”In other words, first Muslims attack Jews; then when the Jews are gone, they attack Christians. We have watched it happen over and over again in the Middle East and now it is happening in Europe. Many French Jews have fled France and moved to Israel. 8000 of them left France for Israel last year which is a rate far higher than anywhere else in Europe. Once they are all gone the attacks on Christians will increase to fill the void they have left.

The slaughter of French priest Father Jacques Hamel on July 26 in Saint-Étienne-du-Rouvray was significant. The church where Father Jacques Hamel was saying mass was nearly empty.

…Christianity in France is dying out. Jacques Hamel was almost 86 years old; despite his age, he did not want to retire. He knew it would be difficult to find someone to replace him.

…The reaction of the French bishops was also significant. Speaking in their name, Georges Pontier, chairman of the Conference of Bishops of France…asked Muslims living in France to come to church to “share the grief of Christians.” He added that Muslims are welcome in France.

The decision to deliver a message of brotherhood is consistent with the spirit of Christianity. The wish to welcome Muslims to France but to leave completely aside that the assassins of Father Jacques Hamel acted in the name of Islam and jihad seem signs of willful blindness, severely pathological denial, and a resigned, suicidal acceptance of what is coming.

The assassins of Father Jacques Hamel are what is coming.

…Father Jacques Hamel was murdered on July 26, in the church of Saint-Étienne-du-Rouvray, by Islamic jihadists.
The French education system does not teach young people to love France and the West. Itteaches them instead that colonialism plundered many poor countries, that colonized people had to fight to free themselves, and that the fight is not over. It teaches them to hate France. But it erroneously describes Islam as a religion that brought “justice, dignity and tolerance” wherever it reigned.

Seventh-grade students spend the first month of the school year learning what Islamic civilization brought to the world in science, architecture, philosophy and wealth. A few weeks later, they have to memorize texts explaining that the Church committed countless atrocious crimes…The Holocaust is still in the curriculum, but is taught less and less; teachers who dare to speak of it face aggressive remarks from Muslim students.

…French mainstream media do their best to hide the truth. Abdel Malik Petitjean and Adel Kermiche are described as troubled and depressed young people who slipped “inexplicably” towards barbarity. Their actions are widely presented as having nothing to do with Islam.

Sade_DonatienThe Marquis de Sade

 Sex, Sacrilege and Sublimity

Marquis de Sade was a French aristocrat and philosopher who became notorious for acts of sexual cruelty in his writings as well as in his own life

Warning – This Story May Be Disturbing and Offensive to Some People.

“Either kill me or take me like this, for I will not change,” wrote the imprisoned Marquis de Sade to his wife in 1783. It could only be one or the other for the most extreme author of the 18th Century. Sade, an unstoppable libertine, was in the middle of what would be an 11-year prison sentence, but he would not recant his principles or his tastes to get out of jail. Any diversion from his true nature was, for the marquis, equivalent to death.

Marquis de Sade, a French aristocrat, philosopher and writer of explicit sexual works, was born in Paris in 1740. His writings depict violence, criminality, and blasphemy against the Catholic Church. During the French Revolution he was an elected delegate to the National Convention. The last years of his life were spent in an insane asylum. He died in 1814.

Donatien Alphonse François, best known as Marquis de Sade, was born in Paris, France on June 2, 1740. His father was a diplomat in the court of Louis XV, and his mother was a lady-in-waiting. From the start, de Sade was raised with servants who flattered his every whim.

By the age of 4, de Sade was known as a rebellious and spoiled child with an ever-growing temper. He once beat the French prince so severely that he was sent to the south of France to stay with his uncle, an abbot of the church. During his stay, while he was 6 years old, his uncle introduced him to debauchery. Four years later, de Sade was sent back to Paris to attend the Lycée Louis-le-Grand. After misbehaving in school, he was subject to severe corporal punishment, namely flagellation. He spent the rest of his adult life obsessed with the violent act.
