    The revolutionaries are often described as a bloodthirsty, violent mob. The article “Dickens’ Views on the French Revolution” labels the revolutionaries as animalistic, wild, and demonic (1). The wild state of the revolutionaries must have instilled fear in the minds of the aristocrats, expanding on the idea that Dickens shows more sympathy towards the aristocrats. Moreover, the violent death via guillotine allowed the revolutionaries to more easily and mindlessly murder large sums of the aristocrats (Sarpparaje 126). For example, on one particular day, the revolutionaries were able to kill 52 aristocrats using the guillotine (Dickens 371).…

You die now” but why would someone wanting to kill as many people as possible write that on the letter when it would be much more effective to leave it blank and have multiple people pick up the letter and get poisoned.…

A rumor spread that the granaries holding the stores of gunpowder had been burned, and that the castle-which is what the people called the Alhóndiga-was about to blow up”. The inclusion of this rumor only favored Alamán’s point of the revolution consisting of violence because he only looked through the eyes of the wealthy.…

    How the hate group showed their hate is through lynching people, killing people usually by hanging. This was just one of the many horrible ways the KKK showed how violent they wanted, and were going to be. The members would abduct people so they could torture and kill them in disturbing, unforgivable ways such as beating, drowning, shooting them and many other ways as well. If killing one person at a time didn’t meet the needs of members of the Klan, they’d bomb churches and schools, killing adults and children bringing even more pain and suffering into the lives of the people affected by these horrendous crimes. Klan members would kill people if they were black, or even just involved with a black person or involved with organizations aiding African Americans.…
