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.
"I have pursued mine enemies, and destroyed them; and turned not again until I had consumed them.
"And I have consumed them, and wounded them, that they could not arise: yea, they are fallen under my feet.
"For thou hast girded me with strength to battle: them that rose up against me hast thou subdued under me.
"Thou hast also given me the necks of mine enemies, that I might destroy them that hate me."
"They looked, but there was none to save; even unto the Lord, but he answered them not.
"Then did I beat them as small as the dust of the earth, I did stamp them as the mire of the street, and did spread them abroad."
--II Samuel 22: 38-43
Trump will go BIBLICAL on the Democrats.
& believe me, Biblical is WORSE, far worse than Medieval.
An utterly vanquished Cautionary Tale right up there with Ancient Carthage.
Trump is a classicist, so he knows all about razed to the ground and then salting the earth.
@ThomasWic Whew! Thomas, that was an incredible thread!
The Demos are unprepared for
the wrath which awaits them, and
personally, I cannot them even a
smidge of sympathy.
From a poem Wilde wrote in jail:.
And every human heart that breaks,
In prison-cell or yard,
Is as that broken box that gave
Its treasure to the Lord,
And filled the unclean leper's house
With the scent of costliest nard.
Ah! happy day they whose hearts can break
And peace of pardon win!
How else may man make straight his plan
And cleanse his soul from Sin?
How else but through a broken heart
May Lord Christ enter in?
His heart let Christ in:
"We will not go quietly into the night!
We will not vanish without a fight!
We're going to live on!
We're going to survive!"
Today, we celebrate our Independence Day!
That gave me a wonderful chill of anticipation..
@ThomasWic I remember your threads on Twit.I also believe Trump will be the last Man standing.Before the 2020 Election,Trump will expose everything.I call it his insurance policy.It was one of you brainiacs who said the Media will have no choice but to cover it.Trump is no ordinary man and neither are you Thomas.When I think of Hillary’s comments about taking down DC with her I laugh. The difference with Trump he will make sure they can’t get up again.Realizing this has brought me such
@ThomasWic calmness. ( most of the time😁)Now when I read the utter BS I think okkkkkk!.It’s going to be an awesome smack down. Trump will rise victorious (IMHO) Again Thank you! Bravo ❤️
I think that people don’t realize that Trump has more on his mind than just getting back at a few idiots. Yes their day will come but his plans are far greater than that.
Trump has been gutting old buildings and turning them into hotels, resorts, residential towers, golf courses and casinos for many years now. He doesn’t just put in a new stove when a kitchen needs to be gutted and remodeled.
Right now he is remodeling DC. When he is done only the location will be recognizable.
Certainly consistent with his character and love of Country.
"What happens after Trump?"
Moses parts the Red Sea & destroys Pharaohs Army.
As the Earth stops shaking
a nearby Israelite was heard to mutter "Sure, sure, we're Free & THAT threat is destroyed...BUT WHAT HAPPENS NOW?"
May I slap Humanity, Thomas?
@ThomasWic Sarah H Saunders or Mike Pompeo happens after Trump
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.
Statement from the American Psychiatric Association:
“...One reason for The Goldwater Rule is the likelihood of error in a diagnosis made at a distance. The standards in our profession require review of medical and psychiatric history and records and a complete examination of mental status...”
And there’s also the total lack of ethics by political hack shrinks-for-hire to consider.
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.
The article appeared in BagNews, with no writer's name.
But the writer said he's a clinical psychologist, and the only one there is Michael Shaw.
He accused me of saying that the photos in question were doctored, and that the New York Times also staged them.
I never said that. But Shaw dismissed his own made-up claims by saying I'm mentally ill.
This is why Trump will exterminate them. They have no scruples.
Remember when Trump said he didn't want to hurt the Clintons because they're good people?
That was his olive branch.
They knocked it out of his hand and spit in his face.
If the Democrats make the terrible mistake of impeaching him, they'll literally cease to exist as a political force in the country.
I say, "Bring it on."
They're like rabid dogs that need to be put down.
Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
