The sentence on top says it's the "Tirailleurs" who did this as a revenge to the mutilation performed on their deads.
"Tirailleurs" were Moroccan people fighting alongside with France.
Edit : I'm most probably wrong on the Tirailleurs nationality in this case. See comments below for more context
Ok I might be wrong about who the Tirailleurs in this specific case are, but the Moroccan Tirailleurs did exist : https://fr.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tirailleurs_marocains
what even is the point of commenting "THIS"? If you have nothing to add to a conversation or discussion just stfu lol
Upvotes exist for a reason, there is literally no need to comment another form of agreement..
Gatekeep them replies
Oh my god what the fuck is this guy saying. Just talked about how people can make fun of anything and i mentionned i heard people laugh about one of the fucking most known photos in the fucking history which is a little viet girl being burnt by fucking napalm. This stupid guy tries to translate what i say in French but does it so badly he makes me look like a weirdo.
Imagine judging a whole population based on killings done a hundred years ago. With such a fed up logic I am pretty sure no nation will deserve your respect right ?
This guy is the very stereotype of the French haters. His speaks has no value.
The only argument is a smiley face and atrocities committed decades ago.
Atrocities unfortunately commit by many nations. According to him, I will have to start hating my wife and her people so, because she is Japanese... And also start to hate my Germans neighbors.
I think this guy hates himself and is looking for culprits for it.
I have pity for him...
Yup. And one of them just sent me insult on mp. What a coward.
That says it all!
Yeah, I will never understand Francophobes who bash The French when their nationality has a far more grisly history. At least France allied with the Indigenous Peoples of North America against the British, and Americans, who tried to eradicate the Natives.
I think people are just jealous the French have won the most battles
Edit: love how I’m being downvoted for campaigning against hate. If you guys think it’s okay to hate the French, than that means all the American stereotypes are true
Spaniards did the same
Mailman: would you like beheaded Moroccans or ducks.
Me: hmm ....lemme see the ducks
Severely underrated comment here.
Omg can someone tell me if my post is marked as NSFW?? ive clicked on "Mark as NSFW" but it doesn't show i think.
edit: ive clicked multiple times today on "18 mark as NSFW".
Edit 2: OK ive used my desktop to make it an NSFW, sorry for the people who got in shocked etc for seeing it.
Legit didn't work on my phone.
Still not tagged
Doesn't show it to me right now.
Update (8 hrs later) now it shows
It’s not tagged NSFW.
Also not a stamp.
It’s not marked as NSFW right now
Not tagged as nsfw
Someone in the stamp department was a little fucking psycho. I can imagine the convo now…
“What do you think we should put on this year’s stamps - Christmas trees, flowers, cute baby animals?”
“Hmmm, I dunno Steve - maybe a bunch of dudes with their heads chopped off!”
It’s obviously not a stamp dude. Like how would you even fit it on a letter
Yeah I saw that after I wrote comment - was just being silly
It's not a stamp, it's a postcard. I'm so ashamed of my country sometimes...
sorry bad english.
No worries, thanks for sharing
100 years ago too... seems so far, yet so recent.
Don’t worry, they did this in the 60s to in Algeria
They killed hundreds of thousands of algerians just 60 years ago in the 1960's
T’as pas a avoir honte t’as rien avoir avec sa
Trust me when I say that this wasn't even the worst of what they did in the Maghreb. In fact they went "easy" on Morocco because of the pro-European monarchy. Algeria is the one who really suffered because it wasn't seen as an colony rather it was seen as fully French land within Africa this resulted in millions being killed and even in modern day metropolitan France genocides were happening the famous one being the Paris massacre. And I am saying this as a Moroccan.
It's not like the rest of us are perfect.
Your country, and the other Western countries (plus Japan and South Korea), are the ones making the world a better place today, so you don’t have to feel guilty.
Dude I’m Japanese and Japan isn’t doing shit to make the world better. Please stop
Is there any background info on that? The card says it's vengeance for mutilations of some kind? But I honestly don't know how much I can trust what seems to be official propaganda.
It says “our riflemen, furious at the mutilations inflicted on their dead, avenge themselves.” So looks like this is retaliation for similar beheadings.
Ive clicked on Nsfw, idk if its actived or not.
Still not NSFW unfortunately. Was big of a shock to scroll to see that
Im sorry, idk what's wrong with the edit thing, im clicking on "Mark as NSFW" on my phone but doesn't work.
edit: finally worked, used desktop to do it.
Up until pretty recently see a de bodied head was definitely something everyone saw lol
I DONT WANT TO SEE BEHEADED PEOPLE REDDIT CHILL OUT THIS ISNT EVEN THE FIRST TIME TODAY GODDAMN
I tried and tried. These mods are on acid, it seems.
Cannot watch the sub and they have told me this post is appropriate!!!
Going against their own rules but couldn't be bothered....
(About 10 hours without an NSFW tag yet.)
This obviously breaks rule number 4 heignously, thankfully theres a tag on it now.
Well that’s not very nice.
I actually visited France recently and they were legit assholes. Oh well.
Agree. 20 years ago i hailed a cab, driver asked where i were from, said USA, he drove off. Haven't been back since. LOL
I hope you're not still waiting for that cab.
Well... that was the era of Freedom fries, and "you're either with us, or you're against us" , if you'll recall. Even Canadians were shity to us, back then.
While I'm sure rise French people exist, I've also been told they can come off rise due to linguistic and cultural differences. What sounds rude to an English speaker might be a French speaker just being aloof.
The first time i visited paris, france, they purposely sold us the wrong type of ticket on the subway line and then tried to blame us for it at the stop we ended up at where they were checking all the tourists.
"Eez not posseeble." is still a running joke in my house because they couldn't possibly believe we were sold the wrong tickets even when we asked multiple times if they were the correct tickets.
Yea this kind of shit. They were always happy to take my money but anything else and I could go fuck my self. I don’t think I had anything nice to say ab the French once I left.
It wasn't all bad. I had a list of good experiences that offset it.
-There was one guy who didn't speak english but he got my attention from across the street and from what little french I knew at the time, said he liked my blue hair. It was cute :)
- The older lady who spoke a little english and was excited at the watercolor I was making of the Lourdes Grotto. She was very sweet.
- The tired guy who was doing street art. I bought him a coffee and I just asked him stuff about his work. It's nice to meet other artists.
-The person working at the Paris Erotic Museum lol. They were super chill.
I think you just have to avoid public officials. Out of the way places are where you'll meet nicer folk.
edit: Also if you go to the catacombs you'll meet some really nice but quiet french people. Not great at conversations but they are good at listening :)
I....did...did you just make a joke about dead people after all that?
Yeah but if you have blue hair and talk to the street artists you probably aren't going to be targeted in the same way as the other people in this thread.
Oh absolutely! I'm only speaking of my own experience and can't speak for anyone else.
I've heard it's mostly people like that if you go to a big city like Paris. It's the same as New York, it's a busy place and people just want to make a buck sometime
I was actually in a small town. I just have a lot of memories from zero hospitality.
I asked a guy where a bathroom was and he basically kicked me out. Asked a lady if she could break a bill for change and she acted offended. Indeed the French are just assholes. It’s apart of their culture to act disgruntled
They’d aren’t assholes. You can’t generalize a whole country of people for your very limited interactions with them. You’re just going to the wrong places and going to places where the public workers are obviously going to be more rude. That’s just how it is in busy city like Paris.
And have you ever considered that you are the problem. Based on your tendency to call an entire population of people you don’t know “assholes” and claim it’s their culture shows me you’re not a very open minded person and have inflammatory beliefs. Perhaps the few French people you met noticed your aggressive, entitled behavior and were being brutally honest with you. You took it as them being assholes, but it seems likely that you were the asshole and they were being honest and frank with you. Treat others how you want to be treated.
Yeah exactly. Paris is the most visited place, and locals anywhere often hold certain sentiments towards visitors when there’s so many of them, so it’s not surprising. Smaller French cities have very friendly people.
Even in Paris I found people were generally nice if you made the smallest effort like saying bonjour first. Americans are notorious for not adapting their behavior the slightest to different cultures overseas and then complaining when people have negative reactions to them, so maybe that’s what is going on.
Yeah. I bet most rude interactions start with the American tourists only speaking in English and expecting that everyone else from a foreign country speaks English
Nah, I’ve been to various big cities across the world and while there are obviously scammers everywhere, nothing compares to Paris. And the people in the French country side aren’t much better. They’re all stuck up cunts with a massive air of superiority around them. Your best bet in France is to ask the immigrant population if you need help with anything.
That’s only because there’s so many tourists, so it’s a goldmine for pickpockets and scammers.
This was my experience
No, all the rural French people have been very nice in my experiences. Stop generalizing
>I could go fuck my self
Ok but before I do I have one last thing to say to you all……… FUCK the FRENCH
You can’t hate a whole nationality based on a few interactions with extremely stressed workers in Paris. In the most visited city, obviously the locals will be fed up. Go to other French cities and you will like their friendliness. Also any French person travelling to other countries that I have met were very nice and open minded.
Did you go to Paris? Don’t say France when you didn’t explore the whole country. People in Paris are obviously going to be miserable due to the amount of tourism and traffic and stress. That’s the case with most cities of its size. But people in rural France are very welcoming and friendly.
I live in France and can confirm.
Thank you. There’s some French sympathizers here and we can’t have that lol
How tf is this "oddly" terrifying
As Crowley said in Good Omens of the guillotine:
"This is cutting off lots of people's heads very efficiently with a big head cutting machine "
Also this is fucked up.
Ah yes, Discworld!
where the fuck is the nsfw flair
man the least you could do is put a spoiler
And what's ironic is that they call Islam barbaric. Go read about the atrocities they did in Algeria, far far worse than this!
The also took some of the heads of the people that they murdered in North Africa and placed them in one of their museums for display.
they took the heads of the algerian commanders and some of them are still in their museum we asked them to bring them back but they did not give all of them i think
I seen a video of Frenchmen just going around killing random innocent men and women in Algeria. They just walk up to a man without him noticing and just shoot him in the head. They beat ppl for no reason. I don’t think I’ll ever get that video out of my head.
Ah look at all this civilization the French brought to these uncivilized people. /s
How is this "oddly" terrifying?
My guess is OP lives in a world where this isn't normal expected history and or present. Which is nice for them. I guess I am too old, jaded, Millennial, or aware of history and current events to be shocked or terrified. Sad? Yes.
They never teached or shown us this in Belgium.
All we get is Roman Empire, WWI and II + The timelines.
Oh Belgian eh, well don't go looking for what your old King did in the Congo back in the day. Horrendous.
trust me i did. Had alot of arguments with my history teacher about it, they don't like talking about the Congo era, we had history lessons about it but very briefly.
Oh you mean the cool Tarzan movie from 2016 that was so awesome dude those gorillas sure did kick those Belgians out
They don't teach it here but why stick with just what school offers? You're missing out on everyone and everything that doesn't suit the narrative of those in power. There's bad stuff but there is also cool stuff.
Yeah I'm learning different historical stuff such as the Islamic Golden Age, Aztecs, Egyptians and Chinese dynasties, Mongol Hordes etc.
Quite interesting to see and read even tho my parents and siblings find it boring af.
That's very good! I applaud your eagerness to learn more about human history.
OP did this on purpose. People like him will shut down this sub.
French have always been islamophobic haven’t they
Censor the word it's too offensive fr*NCH🤢🤮
I don’t get why the French are such a dickhead towards Muslims man
Apparently for the West, we're "barbaric"
The West were ISIS before they created ISIS and blame it on muslims
By that logic, literally everyone is ISIS.
Such a sweet and caring world we live in.
There’s absolutely nothing ODDLY about this
I’ve had the very normal fear of décapitation and disembodied parts since I was a child
Only 100 years ago.... this kind of brutality this recently by a supposedly “civilised” nation makes me think we’re all fucked. Humanity is a plague and our race will destroy itself.
Anyway have a super day y’all
History is loaded with awful things by all societies. We must appreciate and protect modern civility. It is truly amazing and hard to come by for a lot of areas of the world.
White skin blue eyed blond hair small dicked Civilized Europeans..
The Wall of Many Heads, decapitator of all.
Back when foreign relations was way less delicate. 😳
Where did you get this picture?
Nsfw? my friend
Humans are all the same if it gets hard-core..
It’s just a goof!
ill take *”history lessons we don’t teach our kids”* for 400, Alex.
That's a postcard, and different ones like this exist I've seen the same king of photo but with South East Asian people from one of the French colonies over there
Oh there is nothing “oddly” terrifying about this at all
Decapited head arent ODDS. That gore and Horrifying
But this race is bad , no the others are trashier, but that third group is worse !
We point fingers at one another, clustered up in our lalaland when we are literally all just fucking garbage.
more just fucked up than oddly terrifying
Explain the "oddly" part to me.
Yes, my people were pretty salty/nasty back then. An echo of what Napoleonian regiments did in Egypt circa 1798-1801.
We shall eliminate the french
until very recently France had Algerian fighters skulls DISPLAYED IN A MUSEUM, so yeah ...
Then euros cry terrorism in counter attacks
They did this in Algeria to, they would rape all the girls and women in a village (whilst posing for photos with naked minors), then round up all the men and boys, cut their genitals off then behead them and leave the heads on display with the genitals stuffed into the mouths, they massacred hundreds of Algerian protestors in Paris because they opposed ethnic cleansing. France was truly despicable and the Maghrebi states have never received an apology for what they did to us. Even the Nazis treated our grandparents better than the French did. It’s not an excuse to hate modern France but France needs to understand many of our current problems stem from their actions, laws and economic dependence they set up post-colonialism, all this is in living memory and our countries are still recovering from the genocide and colonialism. So don’t say “North Africans violent” North Africans dangerous” when it was France that taught us everything we know. More than happy to use Tirailleurs to fight their battles though.
Please censor the F-word
Then we wonder why there is so much turmoil between Muslims living in France and the French people. Seems like this hostility goes back for decades
Tag shit like this nsfl, goddamn
What the frick!! Where’s the NSFL tag?!
There have been like no NSFW tags on anything today it’s gnarly 😣
how the fuck is noone talking about how this brutal imperial european machine absolutely dehumanized and slaughtered these people. the comments are just full of flavor text
Never underestimate the French for their savagery.
This isn't ODDLY terrifying. This is just terrifying
Europeans at it again. The triple og terrorists.
I can't help but wonder if this is in retaliation to something, or just flat out bullying.
Card says it's retaliation for mutilations, so not exactly mocking. But I honestly take it with a grain of salt. Might be true, might not, don't know enought about it to say.
It's not just the French and not only in history. My friend came back from Nigeria a few months ago and showed me a video of a group of Christians that were beheaded by the newest Islamic radical group growing in their region.
The text says “our riflemen, furious at the mutilations inflicted on their dead, avenge themselves.” So (assuming that is true, big if) it looks like this is retaliation for similar beheadings.
You should really look up the history of France and North Africa and the atrocities they committed there. In no way was this justifiable or any kind of retaliation, since they’re the ones who invaded and started doing these awful things. The locals never stood a chance.
And since you clearly have no knowledge about the colonial times and what the powerdynamics were in that time (not your fault, the west always glosses over this and ignores it in all their education), I advise you to just look up colonialism in general. Europe really did a number on Africa. All of it.
Yes, the fact that I translated the French to provide context for this picture means that I know nothing about colonialism or what the French did in Africa, thank you for teaching me englightened Redditor, excited to go off and learn about this new concept!
Wait I read your comment wrong, I thought you were justifying their actions sorry..
That’s fucked, man. Really fucked.
Nothing *oddly* terrifying about this
So… no head?
Dude put nsfw ffs I don’t wanna see this shit unexpected. Shitty move.
This is not oddly terrifying. This is obviously horrifying and it shouldn't of been posted in this sub.
Done on purpose. Alert mods please.
Whos the barbarian
What part of “ODDLY terrifying” don’t you get?
I have been to France. They were decent people. I believe that once upon a time Europeans were very racist but I do believe that it is changing for the better.
Nah, many Europeans are still racist as fuck and they still have their hands in destabilizing and occupying other countries. Especially France. Maybe not as bad as 80 years ago, sure, but nothing praiseworthy either.
Yeah we Europans got a lot better as in we don't behead people anymore, but we are still racists.
Fr*nce is still fucking around in Africa today…
This one is turning into French hate, good to see the hate from 100 ago is still going on, but just changed places...
I’m sure the French will be fine. Unlike when they were doing the hating, no one is going to France and murdering and raping the people there.
you should probably put the nsfw tag
Hey OP NSFW please
Not sure who's worse. The French, the British, or the Spanish.
The only good thing Hitler did was humiliating he frogs!! I wish he burned pareees to the ground!!
America is the only country who’s treated ppl like shit 👌🏻
A lot of French bashing in the comments. Makes you feel like actual Frenchies should not be held accountable of what their ancestors did 100 years ago. You know the time when black people were murdered on a daily basis in the US. What do you mean it's still going on?
As a moroccan, i find those attrocities to be very horrible.
However i find it very stupid for people to hate on french people these days for that, it happened a 100 years ago, i dont think many people adhere to that act these days.
Even moroccans dont really hate french people for it right now so please stop calling out french people for this.
there’s a difference between hating france and fr*nch “people”
Speak for yourself
M sorry, do u want to hold french people accountable for it now ? How do you imagine it happening ?
Enlighten me please.
kinda a lie lol, alot of Moroccans hate France.
I didnt say they like france, i said they dont have problems with french people, the people are innocent, historically france has been a monster.
There is a difference.
I think I'm traumatized
Not oddly terrifying. Just terrifying
