Fr. Hewko makes several interesting points in this good sermon -
He starts out by talking about the Vendee, he notes that there were three main tactics against the Vendee that were implemented when massacring and fighting them in the field were not successful.
The first was that they attempted to use their own priests against them. They convinced a few compromising priests to sign an oath to the Masonic French government. They then sent these 'juring' priests back to the Vendee – to preach peace to the Vendee people and get them to lay down their arms. But these good people would not receive these priests and would not attend their Masses. In our times, these were the Fraternity of St. Peter. They were sent to confuse and pull away souls from the SSPX. They would say the same Latin Mass, wear the same vestments, but they were wolves in sheep's clothing as they were infected with a modernist Conciliar Church spirit.
When this first tactic was not successful, the second tactic implemented was the Masonic government itself attempted to strike a peace agreement with the Vendee Catholics. This is similar to the Conciliar Church making overtures to the SSPX to get them to become regularized and stop fighting for Tradition.
The third tactic was to take out the leadership of the Vendee. They did this by making a massive manhunt for the last Vendee general, General Charette. With a wide swath of soldiers, they hunted and eventually caught General Charette and eventually executed him. This is the Conciliar Church trying to get the last of the Resistors. (Those priests and faithful who saw through the charade and speak out against it. - Any thoughts who these could be?)
I am pleased to hear him explain the details, to reveal the similar maneuvering now in Catholic tradition.
Just as U.S. American history school books and movies leave out the truth and important facts concerning the involvement of Freemasonry, so too in France, Spain, Mexico and no doubt other countries do too.
A 70 plus yr. old Novis Ordo Catholic neighbor who was born , raised, educated in France was surprised when she recently read some books on the Vendee to learn about the uprising of the Catholics there. Her sister who still lives in the Vendee region wasn't aware of this part of their history. She knew when she read it, that it was true. She purchased more of the books to have her family read them to know the truth. Her grandson is a history teacher and he also wanted the same books as he told her he never read about the Vendee uprising in all his years of history study.
Unless people know history, they find it had to believe when it's happening right in front of them. However even if they do know the history, when they are attached to personalities of some people involved they can refuse to believe it.
Archbishop Lefebvre wrote of the parallel between the crisis in the Church and the French Revolution noting that it is not simply a metaphorical one, but because they do not see blood flowing, many do not believe.
