The American Revolution Patriots Fought for Autonomy and We Must Do That Too | Barbara Loe Fisher

The 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence in 1776 taking on the King of England had a vision. Many were well-educated and in their 30s and 40s, married and raising children in the 13 original colonies. Most were attorneys and jurists, while others were merchants, shippers, farmers, physicians, ministers and other professions. They had a lot to lose if they failed in their quest to throw off the yoke of tyranny and create a new Republic. They dreamed of a nation where all would be free to respect “the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God.”

July 4th Marks Our Struggle Against the Left

The American Revolution vs. the French Revolution.

[Order Daniel Greenfield’s new book, Domestic Enemies: HERE.]

July hosts two revolutions that changed the world.

On the fourth of the month, the Declaration of Independence pledged “lives”, “fortunes” and “sacred honor” under the “protection of divine Providence” to fight for the belief that the government derives its consent from the governed. On the fourteenth of the month, French radical mobs stormed the Bastille prison leading to over 100 deaths in an event likely triggered by the antics of the infamous monster the Marquis de Sade. None of the 7 prisoners inside were worth liberating, but the assault on the Bastille made brutal mob violence the symbol of the revolution.

Three days earlier, a proposed French version of the Declaration of Independence, drafted by Lafayette with some input from Thomas Jefferson, languished. By the time the tangled mess of the Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen, with its emphasis on enforced equality was approved next month, the fundamental distinctions between the two revolutions were set.

Abbe Sieyes, the former clergyman who ended up writing much of the Declaration, would turn heretic to survive during the Reign of Terror, and was instrumental in bringing Napoleon to power, while the Count of Mirabeau, the other . The editor of the Declaration, had been a secret agent of the monarchy. Two years later, Lafayette was on the run from the leftist radicals running France. While the Constitution ruled in America, the Rights of Man were in shambles in France.

The sharp contrast between the Founding Fathers of the two republics is more than a matter of history. The American and French revolutions are still playing out all this time later.

When the French Revolution arrived with its promise of mandatory equality, it was highly seductive to Americans who were losing touch with their own revolution. A whole generation had come of age who had been children during the days of Bunker Hill and Valley Forge.

What they wanted was not the old American Revolution, but an exciting new French one.

In my book ‘Domestic Enemies: The Founding Fathers’ Fight Against The Left’, I describe the struggle for the soul of the nation that ensued between George Washington and the radicals.

Citizen Genet, an emissary of the French Revolution, had helped set up ‘Democratic Societies’ dedicated to promoting a radical revolution in America. The name would later influence the new Democratic-Republican Party, which would eventually shed the Republican part of the name to become today’s Democratic Party.

“These societies were instituted by the artful & designing members (many of their bodies I have no doubt mean well, but know little of the real plan),” Washington wrote, “instituted by their father, Genet,” and behind them, “under popular and fascinating guises, the most diabolical attempts to destroy the best fabric of human government.”

The “popular and fascinating guises” were what we today call equity rather than equality.

Where the American Revolution had emphasized the independence of the individual from the state, the French Revolution focused on building up the state as the guarantor of freedom.

It was this distinction that confined most of the ugliness between key figures in the American Founding to nasty letters while the streets of Paris ran with the blood of political opponents. The new regime was so busy enforcing equality against everyone accused of aristocratic and reactionary tendencies that no one had any rights left against state or mob violence.

The new French radical regime promised to solve all the nation’s problems, but could not manage the economy, the food supply or much of anything else. All it could do was kill.

Increasingly radical factions mobilized mobs and blamed the failures of the past government on being insufficiently extreme. The problem was never their poor understanding of market economics and agriculture, but the inequality that could only be purged through mass murder.

During the Reign of Terror, Robespierre assured fellow radicals that it would all be worth it for, “by sealing our work with our blood, we may witness at least the dawn of universal happiness.”

There was plenty of blood, but no happiness. And yet American radicals want all of that here.

“We must have a revolution,” George Logan, a prominent Democratic Republican figure—who gave his name to the Logan Act after he attempted to privately negotiate an end to the Quasi-War between America and France—declared. “That alone can save us, but would you believe it? Our people do not want to hear talk of it. They are already corrupted. Ah! If I were now in France, if I could see all that goes on there, how I would rejoice.”

In the streets of Philadelphia and New York, a new generation of radicals were calling for George Washington and some of the Founding Fathers to face the guillotine.

Washington understands that this cannot be allowed to happen in the United States.

In ‘Domestic Enemies: The Founding Fathers’ Fight Against The Left’, I describe how as the violence intensified in both France and America, George Washington became the only sitting president to command troops in the field against the radicals, calling the insurrection, “the

first formidable fruit of the Democratic Societies; brought forth I believe too prematurely for their own views, which may contribute to the annihilation of them.” Here he was too optimistic.

The struggle between the French and American revolutions nearly led to civil war in this country. Long before Antifa and BLM, or Bill Ayers and the Weathermen or even anarchists detonated bombs on Wall Street, our Founding Fathers were fighting the start of the 200-year war with the Left. They understood that what was at stake was the very definition of freedom.

“If the progress of Jacobinism is to be arrested at all, it is by fighting it,” a letter from Abigail Adams quoted. ”And if there be a Nation on Earth capable of going the necessary lengths, and making the proper sacrifices to stop its course,—it must be one that is already possessed of substantial liberty, that knows how to appreciate it, & how to distinguish between it and that Sort of Liberty which France is trying to propose throughout the world. To every other Nation & people, the french liberty is perhaps equal, if not superior to their own.”

The leftist cause spread like a virus across Europe and much of the world because they had no defense against it. But thanks to the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, we did.

The war of ideas between the two revolutions and republics was always going to end here.

America was the only alternative to the Left. The Declaration of Independence was a wellspring of our sort of liberty. The Fourth of July is the celebration of that liberty, not only from one particular mad king, but from the entire idea of the supremacy of the state.

What initially began as a revolution against a monarchy became a revolution against the Left.

When we watch fireworks burst into the sky above our cities, towns, rivers, lakes and oceans, what makes that display different from those of so many other nations is that our revolution was meant to make us free, not just as a nation, but as individuals pursuing our own destinies.

We did not fight a revolution to build a system that would make us equal by leveling everyone else. This was not a revolution of equity, but of liberty, not a scheme to control others through the state, but to liberate all of us from the state. That unfulfilled revolution is at the heart of the slow civil war in which America finds itself on the 248th anniversary of our fight for freedom.

248 years later the fight goes on.

In ‘Domestic Enemies: The Founding Fathers’ Fight Against The Left’, I tell the story of that fight, not against the British crown, but against the radical tyranny that the Left calls ‘liberation’.

The legacies of the two revolutions are still at war in our government and our society. As we celebrate the 248th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence, let us do all that we can so that it is the American Revolution, and not the French Reign of Terror, that prevails here.

The American Revolution Patriots Fought for Autonomy and We Must Do That Too by Barbara Loe Fisher

The 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence in 1776 taking on the King of England had a vision. Many were well-educated and in their 30s and 40s, married and raising children in the 13 original colonies. Most were attorneys and jurists, while others were merchants, shippers, farmers, physicians, ministers and other professions. 1 They had a lot to lose if they failed in their quest to throw off the yoke of tyranny and create a new Republic.

They dreamed of a nation where all would be free to respect “the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God.” They proclaimed in the Declaration of Independence that: 2

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”  

That document marked the official beginning of the American Revolution declaring war on the British monarchy, a war that would last until 1783. Those who signed it made this solemn pledge: 3

“For the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.”

They knew the risk they were taking by following their conscience and summoning the courage to sign that pledge. The personal price almost all of them paid was steep. One-third fought in the militia and nine died from wounds or hardships suffered during the war, with several losing sons in it. Some were taken captive by the British and tortured as traitors. A dozen saw their homes burned down. Nearly all were poorer by the end of the war than when it began. 4 5

Resisting Tyranny and Defending Autonomy to Protect Natural Rights

Tyranny comes in many forms. Resisting tyranny that robs the people of their liberty is usually taken up by a minority, who will not comply and who lead the way for others longing for freedom, who either don’t know how to fight for it or are afraid of the price they will have to pay if they do.

The natural right to autonomy is the foundation for all other natural rights given to us by God and the foundation for human rights acknowledged by governments. 6 7 The Declaration of Independence, like the Bill of Rights in the U.S. Constitution, acknowledges the existence of basic natural rights that belong to every human being. 8 9 10

Today the right to autonomy, protection of bodily integrity, 11 and other natural rights are under attack.12 13 Autonomy, which gives us the freedom to think rationally and follow our conscience and make voluntary decisions about exercising informed consent to medical risk taking, is being threatened by corporations and institutions, doctors and scientists, public health officials and academics, attorneys and judges, lawmakers and businessmen, who are facilitating iron-fisted operation of the powerful and very lucrative Public Health Empire. 14 15 16 17 18 19 They seek ownership of our bodies and the bodies of our children so we can be legally compelled to buy and use pharmaceutical products that they label “vaccines” 20 that not only can fail to prevent infection and transmission 21 22 but can injure and kill. 23 24 They believe that our bodies can be sacrificed in service to “the greater good” of society or, as utilitarians would put it, in order for government officials to be able to secure what they have judged to be “the greatest happiness for the greatest number of people. 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32

A Weaponized Mandatory Vaccination System Is Threatening Autonomy

The political tool being used to achieve this end is weaponization of the mandatory vaccination system, which has been in place globally for the past two centuries. 33 It began with compulsory smallpox vaccination. 34 35 In the 21st century, compulsory vaccination laws have become the tip of the spear in the great culture war going on in this country and countries around the world as populations are being asked to answer these two questions and make a choice.

Does the individual have natural rights which limit the power of the state? Or does the state own the bodies of individuals and the legal right to use them for what those in power have judged to be “the greater good?”

These are profound questions. They strike at the heart of liberty and what it means to be free.

Those patriots who fought and died in the American Revolution to secure the freedoms we are trying so hard to protect knew how important freedom of thought and conscience were to preserving liberty. They had suffered persecution for their religious beliefs under oppressive hereditary monarchies. Trapped for centuries in inflexible class systems that kept them poor and powerless, they had fled from tyranny but still found themselves as residents of colonies being subjected to harsh taxation without representation and punished for speaking out against injustice.

The patriots who wrote the Declaration of Independence knew that without respect for autonomy and the right to exercise freedom of thought 36 and conscience, 37 individuals can be exploited 38 and become nothing more than slaves serving an authoritarian state.

The COVID-19 Pandemic Unleashed Sickness and Death and Abuse of Authority

For the past decade, I have talked about the Vaccine Culture War 39 because forced vaccination laws, which punish individuals for refusing to believe in the sanctity of vaccines and refusing to comply with vaccine mandates, have everything to do with the larger culture war being fought over what it means to be free. 40

Between 2020 and 2023, the whole world saw what can happen when governments fail to respect autonomy and freedom of thought and conscience. 41 This July 4, 2024, most of us know that scientists in biohazard labs conducting risky gain of function research created a mutated coronavirus that unleashed sickness and death on the world 42 43 44 45 with money from governments 46 47 doing the bidding of doctors and pharmaceutical companies in charge of the global Public Health Empire. We know that officials at the highest levels of the U.S. government 48 and in the United Nations World Health Organization lied to the people about what they did, 49 50 and they lied to the people about the risks and failures of the fast-tracked cell disrupter mRNA biological product 51 52 53 54 55 they called a “vaccine” but is unlike any “vaccine” ever injected into humans. 56 57 58 59

What we remember most from that betrayal of trust is that our autonomy, our freedom to think and speak and work and assemble freely, was taken away. In the digital public square, government officials brokered deals with Big Tech owners of social media companies to shut down all conversations about the SARS-CoV-2 virus and the mRNA biology if those conversations did not conform to government and World Health Organization-approved narratives.60 61 62 That censorship continues today, with NVIC and others who tried to tell the people the truth during the COVID pandemic still being blocked from the right to speak on social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram and You Tube – even though the pandemic emergency declaration is over. 63 64 65

But beyond silencing all dissent, the Public Health Empire terrorized, injured and killed people in this country and all over the world by not only creating and then covering up the leak of the lab created SARS-CoV-2 virus, 66 but by forcing people to mask 67 68 and stay six feet away from each other 69 and buy and use a toxic, genetically engineered pharmaceutical product that not only injures and kills but doesn’t prevent infection and transmission of disease. 70 The societal sanctions used to punish people for refusing to comply with mandatory vaccination policies and laws included loss of the right to work and earn a living, 71 72 73 loss of the right to a college education, 74 loss of the right to work with or serve in the military, 75 loss of the right to get a lifesaving organ transplant, 76 and loss of the right to travel and enter public spaces. 77 78 79 80

What we witnessed was a stunning abuse of authority that struck at the very heart of the definition of liberty and what it means to be free. What we collectively suffered, we will never forget and should not forget.

Liberating Ourselves from the Public Health Empire

PHOTO-Woman-walking-on-path-with-trees-autonomy-copy.jpegOn July 4, 1776, the signers of the Declaration of Independence liberated themselves from abuse of authority by a monarchy ruled by a King. On July 4, 2024, the time has come to liberate ourselves from the systematic abuse being perpetrated by the Public Health Empire, whose leaders worship at the altar of scientism 81 82 83 84 and are forcing their hedonistic and Epicurean 85 86 87 utilitarian 88 89 90 and Marxist 91 values and beliefs on the rest of us to justify compromising the biological integrity of our bodies and the bodies of our children. 92 93

God gave us free will. With that free will, we can choose to do good or choose to do evil or choose to do nothing at all.

The journey we take on this earth is defined by the choices we make, and if we are not free to make choices, then the journey is not our own. The choices that involve risk of harm to our physical body, which houses our mind and spirit, are among the most profound choices we make and why we must be free to make them.

We give up the right to autonomy and voluntary informed consent to medical risk taking at our peril, no matter where or in what century we live.

Just like the patriots who signed the Declaration of Independence and pledged to put their lives, fortunes and sacred honors on the line to secure natural rights for themselves and future generations of Americans, we must do the same 248 years later.

It is time to stop forced vaccination policies and laws and affirm the natural right to autonomy in medical care and public health policy and law. We cannot wait any longer because: 

If the state can tag, track down and force individuals to be injected with biologicals of known and unknown toxicity today, then there will be no limit on which individual freedoms the state can take away in the name of the greater good tomorrow.

Child Patriot Shamed, School Punishes 12 YEAR OLD for Daring to Be Patriotic~Colorado School Retreats After Violating Student’s Rights


Picture this: a 12-year-old boy, an American classroom, and a small but powerful patch of fabric that’s got the woke brigade at his school losing their minds. I’m talking about Jaiden Rodriguez, who dared to display the iconic Gadsden flag—yes, the "Don't Tread on Me" flag—on his backpack. Now he finds himself at the center of a cultural warzone.
