    Well the Republican Reconstruction states under Yankee military control did definitely do a lot of that, targeting Confederate veterans and their families across the South, and so did the Democratic state governments that took aver again as the Federali troops withdrew.

    ??? WTF are you talking about???


    Are you truly trying to insult my intelligence and short term memory? Are you seriously quibbling over the distinction between what Robes himself wrote/said re: terror and its use(s) and what others said about him after his death?

    You're the one who brought up Robespierre, not I. You are the one who attested to using it as it "originally" was to describe Robespierre's methods. I just rolled with it and gave you the benefit of the doubt by interpreting that you had in mind was that his use of the word "terror" be an/his analogue for our modern term "terrorism."

    I don't know for I don't know how militarily organized those groups are. I do know it doesn't account for "lone wolf" terrorists who act on their own and without, or with only the most obliquely related, involvement from any organization.

    I meant the English word. I don't know what the French equivalent would be. The English word appears to have been used pejoratively.

    'Jim Crow' was more prominent in northern states, and Republicans like Lincoln even wrote more stringent laws in their terms in state legislatures in the 1850's, in Illinois and the Mid-west most especially.
