ACU Francois Hanriot

A Paris urchin, even if he was born in the suburbs in Nanterre, Hanriot was a true son of the people* at a time when most of the Assembly was comprised of enlightened members of the bourgeoisie and repressed lawyers.
--
* And by 'true son', they of course mean 'Templar puppet'. Or, as I call them, a 'Tuppet'.

Hanriot was working as a tax clerk in the Paris octroi when, on July 12, 1789, angry Parisians attempted to set fire to the building to protest against taxes. Inspired, Hanriot joined in. **

** Well - there's a guy who was happy in his work. His bosses should have seen that kind of unrest coming, really. I mean, half his name is the word 'riot'.
--
And so began his revolutionary career. He was promptly thrown into jail. He found glory once he and his new friends were released thanks to a press campaign overseen by Marat. An "elected" commander of the Jardin des Plantes section, he led the storming of the Tuileries on August 10.

Hanriot – and others – organized the September massacres, offering a daily wage and free wine to the killers. By May 1793, he was appointed Commander General of the Paris National Guard***. He fought against the Girondists with such fury that Marat proclaimed him "the nation's savior".
--
*** Presumably for his unique brand of motivational management.
