Marche Republicaine

To grasp how absurd and offensive it is that yesterday's rally for "Unity" in Paris was titled "Marche Republicaine," imagine how odd it would be if a purportedly non-partisan anti-terrorism mass demonstration in London were called "Monarchist March." "Unity" for everyone except royalists, it seems. But that is typical in France where the Republic is worshiped like a god, as if no one could possibly fail to identify with it.

(HRH Prince Charles-Philippe d'Orléans Duc d'Anjou dissents from the republican "Je suis Charlie" campaign here.)
