July 14 is Bastille Day! Some words are Hebrew that's why it's partially Jewish

The concept of Freedom is in my expereince Jewish

Bastille Day for Real Jean Val Jean French "Mensch", Rescued "Freres" From a Societal Trench, Confounding the Monarchy With a "Monkey Wrench". Marie Antoinette's "Let Them Eat Cake", Only Inspired the Revolution to Make, Show the "Roi" a Farce, Royalty a "Genuine" Fake. "Marsellaise" Patriotically Sung, Bastille Stormed, Prisoners Freed & Democracy Formed, Citizen's United , The Specious Throne "Wormed". Lafayette's the Gratitude to America Shown, Allies Against "Brits" in Our Revolution Renown, Gibraltar Strong, The "DeGaulle Stone"!
