Skip to comments.1305: William Wallace, Braveheart
Posted on 08/22/2020 7:13:46 PM PDT by CheshireTheCat
On this date in 1305, Scottish knight Mel Gibson er, William Wallace was hanged, drawn and quartered at Smithfield for treason to a British crown he refused to recognize. Well, close enough. Some wags have alleged one or two historical liberties in Braveheart.
Among the lesser (but more pertinent here): that they werent you knew this already offering the former Guardian of Scotland the opportunity to reduce his suffering with a public submission, or use the stage for theatrical defiance. Hanging, drawing and quartering was a brand new execution Edward I was experimenting with for emasculating, disemboweling, and (so the idea went) utterly cowing the rebellious hinterlands of the British Isles. Wallace may have been just the second person to suffer it...

The English Monarch were bloody brutal B_tards.
Some of them ended in similar modes.
Then the French experimented in what they though was more humane.
Now as then, Totalitarianism in All forms is Evil!
Marxist (i.e. BLM)
Communist (i.e. Antifa)
All Evil. All Fail.
And the Founders knew this history— dreaded it and finally had enough of British overlording them, and keeping them subservient.
In all the world— the United States of America designed a government that could not and would not allow monarchy, heritable monarchies and ties, and most important of all— eliminated in the Executive election, the possibility of Factions taking over the government from ALL the people. The Electoral College was so designed. So that “democracy” also known as rule by the mobs in the street— would never take over our country. Because the ultimate endpoint in all “democracies” is... Tyranny. Dictatorship, Factions and Tyranny.
We will not have it. And the Founders gave us the legal and moral tools to prevent it.
All the Tory loving liberal “we want to be like the UK” can go and will go, straight to Hell. Right with obamaumao-care— modeled on the UK National Health System.
Agree. On all points.
If anyone gets the chance, go to sterling where the castle and the Wallace monument are located.
The Plantagenets were really bad-from the devil we came and to the devil we will go! Then the Tudors were the icing on the cake and after them came the Stuarts...all nasty.
And actually, a very very large number were homosexual.
BUT..and you may find this hard to believe, but a whole lot of our laws stem from them.
Half hanged, drawn and quartered. He wasnt the first to have that done. Nearly every single one who was tried and convicted of treason had that method practiced upon them.
That’s just the general description...
No, I really DON”T want to read the details again.
“If anyone gets the chance, go to sterling where the castle and the Wallace monument are located.”
My mom and I went there, back in ‘96.
Rented a car and saw tons of castles, the little town where her dad was born, loch Ness (no monster though), and awesome scenery.
We didn’t get et by midges (Scottish equivalent of skeeters), but all the English tourists did; we got a good laugh out of that....
Yes. English Common law is precedent, but this is not 1200.
But the Globalist pukes want is in worse slavery. This is life or death.
Henry VIII sentenced Thomas More to the same sentence but changed his mind and had him beheaded instead.
And then there’s those annoying warring Battenburg entrants in to the royal line-— who, during the run up to WWI (against Germany primarily)... had to change the family name to “Windsors” because the British public expected to sign up for a bloody internecine war of the old monarchies of Europe would not EVER fight for a German Royal Family of the UK. As much a function of the Bolsheviks at work in the UK (unions and anarchy rampant) as it was the genetic reality that these Germans were distrusted by the real heritage of the UK.
This carried over into WWII, with the Irish supposedly being “neutral” (a laugh and a half on that one, they did a lot to interfere in the King’s efforts to defeat the Nazis), when in fact they largely aided the Nazis (even though there were considerable Anglo-Irish, and Irish recruits sent to Europe (many of whom desperately came back from Dunkirk, quite hating the... Hun).
