I need help annotating this quote ?

"Jacobins, I have a truth to tell you. You do not know your most deadly enemies; they are the constitutional priests. It is they who protest most in the provinces against anarchists, disorganisers, Dantonism, Robespierrism, Jacobinism… Do not cherish any longer the popular errors; cut at the roots of superstition! Declare openly that the priests are your enemies."

    That's a quote by Jean-Paul Marat. Read up on the insurrection of 31 May – 2 June 1793 during the French Revolution.

    Source(s): «Jacobins, j’ai une vérité à vous dire: vous ne connaissez pas vos plus mortels ennemis; ce sont les prêtres constitutionnels, ce sont eux qui crient le plus dans les campagnes aux anarchistes, aux désorganisateurs, au dantonisme, au robespierrisme, au jacobinisme … Ne caressez plus les erreurs populaires; coupez les racines de la superstition! Dites ouvertement que les prêtres sont vos ennemis.»
