French revolutionary Jean-Paul Marat assassinated
On this day in 1793, Jean-Paul Marat, a leader of the radical Montagnard faction during the French Revolution, was stabbed to death in his bath by Charlotte Corday, a young Girondin supporter who was subsequently guillotined.

As a result of Marat saying "All lives matter!" Charlotte Corday shouted "Ima stab you!!!"

And, she did.

PC is horrified that the Enlightenment was a thing. We should all cower in our homes in fear of lightening and imaginary sky fairies.

I should mention the artist, one of my favs, David.

His painting often have a hand in central focus, generally meaning 'sacrifice.'



The Death of Marat (French: La Mort de Marat or Marat Assassiné) is a 1793 painting by Jacques-Louis David of the murdered French revolutionary leader Jean-Paul Marat. It is one of the most famous images of the French Revolution. David was the leading French painter, as well as a Montagnard and a member of the revolutionary Committee of General Security. The painting shows the radical journalist lying dead in his bath on 13 July 1793, after his murder by Charlotte Corday. Painted in the months after Marat's murder, it has been described by T. J. Clark as the first modernist painting, for "the way it took the stuff of politics as its material, and did not transmute it".

I’m surprised Conservatives didn’t blame Hillary for this
