Explain the AH Quote

"Well, it's not every day you meet a man like Patton, is it?"
After Patton (Commander General of the United States of New Sparta) slapped two soldiers for apparent insubordination, they were forced to apologize for their provocation. This tongue in cheek response (no pun intended) from solider #1 was deemed not sufficiently apologetic and so the solider was tried for cowardice and shot. Soldier #2's response was far more contrite.

Wars may be fought with weapons, but they are won by men. Or women. Or People. Or Clones. Well, I guess clones are people now too, aren't they? Or drones. Wars can be won by drones too.

"At midnight, when the clock has struck, even Yankees must admit...what the fuck?!"
The Confederate newspaper The Richmond Register regarding the chaotic events of the last week of 1998 - US President Alec Richardson died in a freak accident involving an elephant, a woodchipper and three marrionettes, and then his Vice President, Daniel Martov before he could actually take the oath of office as new president, was arrested by the Federal Directorate of Criminal Investigation for 17 counts of corruption, 3 counts of extortion and 1 count of attempted murder (of his wife). This meant the Speaker of the House should be President, but there was no Speaker because the last one had resigned and the majority New Whigs in the House was still electing a new one, which meant that President Pro Tempe of the Senate became president of the Union - Elizabeth Carroway.

With Carroway being the first female president of the Union, the last week of 1998 had been... chaotic.

What happened when the People's Republic of Boston declared war on the Kingdom of Rhode Island?
 
What happened when the People's Republic of Boston declared war on the Kingdom of Rhode Island?
A question on a standard test in the Canadian Republic's World History CORE curriculum. The question in and of itself is not that controversial, but it did come under some scrutiny for its vaugeness. Between the failure of the Articles and the Columbian Wars of Unification in the early 2000s there were no less than 57 wars between Boston and Rhode Island. In fact, Boston became a 'Peoples Republic' in 1824 after the execution of Prince Mayor Thomas Hartford and kept that name until their conquest by the Colombians in 2009. After some discussion the question was narrowed and became "What happened when the People's Republic of Boston declared war on the Kingdom of Rhode Island in 1923" with the expected answer being something to the effect of "not much"

An omnious panel from a grapic novel series that detailed the United States and Soviet Union having to collaborate to deal with the End Times, including the return of the Hoursemen of Apocalypse and various other monstrous entities. Many have compared it to Good Omens, though in a Cold War setting and with a slightly darker and more violent tone.

"Every 15 years or so has its special comedian defnined by that generation. the 1990s and early 2000s had Jim Carrey and then that mantle passed to Dane Cook in the mid 2000s up to 2020. So, I wonder who will succeed Dane Cook as the beloved comic of our time?"

A quote from an infamous Internet critic about the negative reception of Dane Cook's recent comedy routine. He noted the poor-quality of American comedy at the time, considered the lowest form of entertainment.

"I, Charles Maurras, shall hereby introduce the German Exclusion Act. As citizens of France, it is considered your duty to safeguard the nation against the nefarious menace of the Kaiser. We shall not allow the German menace to destroy France within. Under this very law, all people of German descent are compelled to register in the national registry. It is mandatory for all German families to be relocated in camps. Anyone resisting the order will be punished on sight"

Losing the Great War did not quite destroy France as a nation, but it did destroy its political stability -until Maurras arranged a palace coup and seemed to restore something resembling law and order. Unfortunately it would only be the start of a terror regime the likes of which had not been witnessed before, and the world fervently hopes never to witness again.

First Petrograd burned, then Moscow, and now, after a long and bitter struggle, Yekanterinburg joins the list. There is no more stopping the Kaiser´s armies. Comrades, the war is lost. Our dream of a new, glorious society, falls to reactionary forces. Save what you can and flee. Do not look back."

A speech given by Soviet general Georgy Zhukov to his troops, shortly before he defected to the Germans in 1942. Following the Imperial German Army's razing of Yekaterinburg under the orders of Marshall Heinrich Himmler—a notably brutal commander placed in charge of Germany's Eastern Front operations in the Second Great War—Zhukov's betrayal sent shockwaves through the Eurasian Socialist Republic, with mass desertions and widespread civil unrest following. The Eurasian war effort rapidly collapsed, culminating with the suicide of Chairman Leon Trotsky. His successor, Mikhail Kalinin, finally negotiated an armistice with Germany in early 1943, and another with Japan in the following months, ending the bloody conflicts between Russia and Germany that had spanned over the last 30 years and preserving communism within the rump Siberian Socialist Republic, centered on Novosibirsk. When asked in a 1964 interview about the reasons for his betrayal, Zhukov replied that he had hoped it would finally lead to peace; his true motives remain the subject of wide speculation.

"Boys, listen up! The enemy is at the gates of Charleston! We've blown the bridges, but we have our backs to the wall! We will fight like gamecocks for every inch of this city, and if we're pushed into the harbor, well I expect we'll fight an hour after that."

The rowdy cry regarding the taking of Charleston during the Second American Civil War. Caused after various politicians refused to acknowledge the victory of the Socialist Party of America's candidate and later the exposure of a coup attempt by various elites and sympathizers. The " Socialist Union" forces ended up taking over Charleston against what would be the "traitors" in a heavily one-sided affair. The Deep South saw the most conflict as there was mass support among the minorities. Starting in 1935 and ending in 1941, the Second American Civil War and thus was formed the United Communes of Usonia. The new nation would prove itself when joining the Allies against the Axis and claiming victory, cementing itself as a superpower.

"J. Edgar Hoover supported the socialists in exchange for more power behind the scenes and he used it to purge the enemies of the state when the new American government began modernizing. Them accepting his non-heterosexuality was the reason he went from supporting them just in the professional manner to genuine faith."

Excerpt from Robert Caro's biography of J.Edgar Hover, The Security Man.

The book is controversial for its romanticized portrayal of Hoover as a closeted homosexual who was liberated by the revolution. It is this version that has come to define him in fictional potrayals.

"Sir Giles De Rais, we offer you a sainthood."
 
"Sir Giles De Rais, we offer you a sainthood."
Some holymen associaed with the Waldenisian Church, offering him sainthood as part of attempts to grow the influence of the Church and safety. Additionally, both had a common enemy in the Catholic Church due to papacy's disbelief in the actions of Joan of Arc. De Rais did not give them an answer until talkking over with Joan. Eventually, Joan let them and De Rais became a saint of the Church. While this angered the Catholic Church, this also forced them more to side with the British and turned the rest of France against them, resulting in France becoming a Waldenisian state when the nation would be unified and Joan of Arc martyred.

Meanwhile, this led to growing fracturing and weakening of Catholics when the Anglican Church would be found and Waldensian influence spread down to Aragon and the Basque region, which led to conflicts with Castille and Portugal down the line. De Rais became a patron saint of Britany and spoken as a companion alongside Joan.
