Oscar Wilde.

He sued a man for calling him a "sodomite."

Wilde's friends warned him to not do it. They told him that the trial would allow the defense to bring up all sorts of dirt.

John Douglas, the 9th Marquess of Queensbury--inventor of modern boxing rules--was the father of one of Wilde's lovers.

The Marquess was a real son of a bitch. He left his calling card at Wilde's club, with the inscription "For Oscar Wilde, posing sodomite."

So Wilde sued him for libel.

Queensbury was arrested. Under British law, he had to prove that the accusations were true.

In court, his lawyers did.

They found male prostitutes willing to testify that Wilde used them.

Wilde dropped the case, but it was too late. He was charged with sodomy and gross indecency.

The first trial ended with a hung jury, but Wilde was convicted in a second trial and sentenced to two years of hard labor.

The prison sentence broke Wilde's health and mental stability.

Not only that, he went from being Britains most celebrated writer to being a pariah, loathed by everyone.

Three years after his release from prison, Wilde died of alcoholism at the age of 46, exiled in Paris.

He was flat broke, and the press still attacked him viciously.

If the Democrats impeach Trump, he'll do a Marquess of Queensbury on them.

Trump fought back against ILLEGAL SPYING.

The Democrats want to impeach him for defeating their ILLEGAL ACTIVITY.

They're refusing to stop.

Trump will therefore declassify everything and kill the Democratic party.

He's said multiple times that he will.

One of the issues that plague me my entire life was people stealing my writing.

It's still happening.

The reason I never fought it is that I remember what happened to Oscar Wilde.

I'm a nobody. The people who steal from me have the ability to destroy me. I don't hav the money to fight them, and they would of course bring up my mental illness.

That's what happened in 2014.

A leftist clinical psychologist wrote an article about me when I began debunking Palestinian propaganda.

There's was nothing I could do, even though he flat-out lied and said I'm delusional.

Oscar Wilde was led into a trap by a man who wanted more than anything to destroy him.

Trump is leading the Democrats into a trap.

@ThomasWic

The "clinical psychologist" in question, if he is one, would be subject to disciplinary action by the American Academy of Clinical Psychology.

I would report the little shit.

Thera are rules against diagnosing unknown individuals without so much as an interview.

A delusional al quack.

@Debradelai @ThomasWic "On occasion psychiatrists are asked for an opinion about an individual who is in the light of public attention or who has disclosed information about himself/herself through public media. In such circumstances, a psychiatrist may share with the public his or her expertise about psychiatric issues in general.

@ScottLoydBayless @ThomasWic

Did I say American Association of Psychiatry?

Nope.

I suggest you read first.

Even then, expressing an opinion or analyzing a video does not rise to "disclosing information abit himself" in public media or anywhere else.

Get it?

@Debradelai @ThomasWic I was agreeing with you in principle, Saul. Psychiatrists, and psychologists like myself are bound by the Goldwater Rule.

It is unethical to make public mental health diagnoses conducted through the ether.

I have an earned doctorate. I can read.

Get it?

@ScottLoydBayless @ThomasWic

More than you know.

Next time, though, when we are talking oranges it would be better not to retort with apples.

And never. Never ever quite WikiBulshit to me.

It's a hallmark of intellectual laziness.

@Debradelai @ThomasWic "And never. Never ever quite WikiBulshit to me."

Saul. What exactly is a "quite" while we're on the topic of intellectual laziness?

@ScottLoydBayless @ThomasWic

I thought the spellchecking morons were all at Twatter.

I was wrong, at least one, it appears, has made it to our shores.

There, I blocked them as a matter of course.

Here, I have yet to decide their fates.

It means asshole, by the way.

A snobbish below average intellect, lazy creep kind of asshole.

Do yo want me to dig deeper into this topic?

Oh, never mind. I already know what to do.

Trolls do belong in Twatter.
