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.
@LibbyAnnSpeaks @cshores8 @ThomasWic Dr. Wictor is one of the most cogent, prescient, knowledgeable, insightful, accessible, humorous, and compelling authors/scholars I've ever read. TW and SMB share wisdom born of unimaginable suffering, grit forged from the same, and passion for truth, justice, and research-saturated, decorum-committed, high level intellectual discourse. Equal measures of fiery wit and righteous anger. We are all truly blessed to humbly learn from the #Quodfathers.
Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
