its a celebration that king henry survived
User avatar #302 - goochtvi (11/06/2012) [-]
except we celebrate it because they stopped Guy from blowing anything up. If we stopped osama from hitting the towers, i'm sure we'd all be celebrating that as well.

I see I have to put some **** straight.

1: Guy Fawkes didn't try to "install a theocracy". It already ******* were a (christian) theocracy just like all of Europe. Any self-confessed atheist at that time would have been tried with torture for witchery and burned at the stake, hanged if he were lucky.

2: The quarrel was between the catholic and protestant church and it's pretty much the same **** that went down in Ireland not too long ago. What's more, at the time there was WAR between the two factions and Fawkes saw it as a holy duty to reinstall Catholicism. No different from crusades or jihad (which were/is also far into the land of full retard)

3: Just like in Ireland things were hidden beneath the religion. In this case it was Scotland vs England.

4: The effigy used to be the pope, not Fawkes. Food for thought, eh?

5: I don't care about that stuff but Fawkes really were a patriot, freedom fighter and revolutionary (which is of course just another word for terrorist these days)

6: V for vendetta is a ******* awesome movie. In case nobody noticed it is not about the real Guy Fawkes.

7: Start an Osama Bin Laden jenga day if you like, noone cares.

Pointless explaining it to someone who doesn't even know who Guy Fawkes is, he probably scrolled with his eye on the wikipedia and thinks he knows **** .

Ah, I see I left out a part. I responded more to the comments than the post. Sorry about that.

There's a huge difference:
Guy Fawkes was a revolutionary, who wanted to break the elitarian system in London by blowing the king and his "accomplices" up.

pic related. A Guy Fawkes mask.

... ******* troll.

Know your history, Guy Fawkes wanted to have a Catholic Monarchy. Instead of a king, he wanted the church to rule. He wasn't revolutionary, he was just like Osama Bin Laden. Some terrorist who fought for his religion.

But like some movie line went:
"One man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter."
#299 to #295 - lesmiserables (11/06/2012) [-]
Catholics were greatly discriminated at that time. They couldn't carry weapons, they weren't allowed to worship their God, they couldn't own business etc. He would probably treat protestants in the same way if he ruled.

No one said a revolutionary has to be righteous. Hitler was a revolutionary too.

The whole point of the line: "One man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter." was, that to the protestants, he was a traitor, but to the catholics, he was a hero. Not that what he did was right.

i hope we end up having a Julian Assange day... i feel like he is the contemporary Fawkes.
y'know, cause, according to the US government, he's a terrorist and they've locked up his associates (eg- Bradley Manning) without being charged. I think they might have tortured Manning as well... but i could be wrong.
Also, he was voted time magazines man of the year but, i dont think the US government liked that so they gave it to Mark Zuckerberg- they gave it to a man who steals your private information rather than give it to someone who tries to protect your privacy.

Does this mean that ******* would wear turbans and fake beards instead of those ridiculous masks?
User avatar #287 - Shiny (11/06/2012) [-]
If flight 93 hit the United States Capitol instead, we probably would.
User avatar #282 - dirtybadger (11/06/2012) [-]
little known fact here. we celebrate it because its my birthday
#275 - broorb (11/06/2012) [-]
no, it's
no
no darling no
We all have massive bonfires on the beach, each with an effigy on the bonfire, replicating how guy fawkes was burned - except nowadays the effigy is always of a different person - like, maybe the most hated person that year, etc.

we don't celebrate the fact that parliament nearly got blown up, you nitwit
User avatar #284 to #275 - frolacosta (11/06/2012) [-]
Fun fact: He was never burned alive, instead he was hung, drawn and quartered!
#285 to #284 - broorb (11/06/2012) [-]
Ohh, I thought we burned his body, though?
#290 to #285 - anonymous (11/06/2012) [-]
I pretty sure his organs were cut out of his body and burned.

In short: **** yourself for self advertising.

well guy fawkes was stopped
User avatar #252 - blackcomet (11/06/2012) [-]
What's "guy fawkes"?
#257 to #252 - connormccloud (11/06/2012) [-]
Quick and short
Everyone thinks he was an anarchist (that's where we get the v for vendetta masks)

Actually he was a religious zealot that tried to blow up the English Parliament to install an autocratic catholic regime and this bit don't quote but I think it was sponsored by Spain
User avatar #258 to #257 - blackcomet (11/06/2012) [-]
How the **** do you celebrate it then?
User avatar #264 to #258 - ninjaminion (11/06/2012) [-]
Fireworks
User avatar #259 to #258 - connormccloud (11/06/2012) [-]
its "celebrate" the english burn him in effigy as a major **** you
User avatar #260 to #259 - blackcomet (11/06/2012) [-]
Like how you burn crosses on Easter, saying **** you to Jesus. I understand now.
#270 to #260 - muchosgustaman (11/06/2012) [-]
that's Ash Wednesday ******** , the beginning of Lent
User avatar #298 to #270 - blackcomet (11/06/2012) [-]
Lent is for people of Catholicism, I'm talking about the common person.
#312 to #298 - muchosgustaman (11/06/2012) [-]
Lent is for all branches of Christianity, Catholics do tend to take it more seriously though. And they burn the crosses to signify Jesus being free from the cross, as opposed to an effigy, which would be a **** you.
User avatar #269 to #260 - SticktheFigure (11/06/2012) [-]
I can't say I've ever heard someone understanding something better than you just did with that topic.
A+ +.
******* .
Excellent.

Was created to celebrate the survival of the then king James the third I believe. Of course the difference being the plan did not actually succeed as opposed to 9/11.
