Etymology of the word Chauvinist
and the definition(s) of who qualifies to be an “AMERICAN CHAUVINIST”®
The word chauvinist is attributed to one Nicolas Chauvin, a young peasant farmer who became a soldier and passionate defender of France and Napoleon Bonaparte in the early 1800s.
Leaving his family to enlist in the First Army of the French Republic at age eighteen (1798), this loyal soldier went on to serve in La Grande Armée of France, ending his career in Napoleon’s Imperial Guard. He was wounded seventeen times in battle.
For his bravery, leadership, patriotism and unwavering loyalty, Napoleon himself presented him France’s highest military honor, Le Sabre d’Honnuer (The Saber of Honor).
Notwithstanding his distinguished military career, after Napoleon’s final defeat at the Battle of Waterloo (1815), when it was no longer popular to be a “Bonapartist”, and living in a severely disfigured body due to his battle wounds, this honorable veteran was derided in the new “Bourbon Restoration” France (1815-1830).
Because of his outspoken and passionate patriotism, his nobleness, his military service and his supposed misplaced loyalties, Nicolas Chauvin was transformed, in France, into a caricature of himself as one of the protagonists in at least two left-leaning plays; The Peasant Soldier (1821) and The Tricolor Cockade (1831), wherein he became the constant butt of jokes. In those plays, he was publicly and mercilessly mocked, ridiculed and demeaned, all because of his personal strong morals, values, ethics and convictions.
Today, as was the case with Nicolas Chauvin in the 1800s, Traditional Americans-American Chauvinists, are under the same constant multifaceted attacks by the “left stream media”, which are in “lock-step” with the entertainment industry, the K-12 public education system, the majority of higher education “academics”, all far left progressive liberal politicians and many left leaning jurists. The similarities are indisputable. Simply put, in their mission for unchallenged power, today’s extreme progressive liberals are on the move to eventually eliminate the “inconvenient” U.S. Constitution entirely, beginning, as evidenced, by their direct and constant assaults on our Bill of Rights.
This is why we chose the word chauvinist and have defined an AMERICAN CHAUVINIST® as; “A native or immigrant patriot (or A citizen of planet earth) who passionately believes the United States of America to be the greatest and most noble nation ever created by mankind”©.
