Today is the end of the Republic—the end of a regime that acquiesces to disorder!
At this very moment, in a system far from here, the New Republic lies to the galaxy,
while secretly supporting the treachery of the loathsome Resistance!
This fierce machine which you have built, upon which we stand,
will bring an end to the Senate, to their cherished fleet;
All remaining systems will bow to the First Order,
And will remember this AS THE LAST DAY OF THE REPUBLIC!
I'm wondering about this last line here. It's kind of redundant with the rest of the speech. The first time I saw the movie, I was expecting him to say something like "the last day of life as they know it" and was a little surprised when he circled back to the words he used at the start. I know repetition is a powerful rhetorical device (especially so with propaganda) but this apparently rushed choice of words still doesn't make sense to me.
So, did Hux make an on-the-fly change to his speech or was the odd redundancy actually planned?
