Sarcastic Leaders From History

Donald Trump said recently that President Obama was the founder of ISIS.  He repeated this several times over the past several days and continually reiterated he meant exactly what he said: President Obama is the founder of ISIS.  This morning, however, Trump stated the media had twisted his words into something he never actually meant.  He now claims he was merely being sarcastic.  Yes, once again, it’s not the Donald’s fault for saying something idiotic, wrong, crude, and insulting, it’s the media’s fault for being too stupid to see he didn’t mean what he actually said.  Way to go there, Donny.  Thing is, Trump is not the first person in history to do this.  Over the years, several famous world leaders have done this exact same thing, often with less than stellar results.  Here are a few of them along with the sarcastic things they said.

1.)

Henry The Eight is famous for sarcastically saying," Cut off Anne Boleyn's head. She cheated on me and is a whore." Henry was later shocked to learn that his sarcastic words were taken literally and his beloved wife's head was actually cut off. OOPS!!!

Henry The Eight is famous for sarcastically saying, after an argument with his wife, ” Cut off Anne Boleyn’s head. She cheated on me and is a whore.” Henry was later shocked to learn that his guards took his sarcastic words quite literally and his beloved wife’s head was actually cut off. OOPS!!!

 

2.)

Adolf Hitler once said, rather sarcastically, "Well then, why don't you just imprison all Jews then gas them and burn the bodies." Hitler's words were taken quite literally by those who followed him, and millions of Jews died because of it. Hitler's response to this was to say, "Well, if people are so stupid as to not know when I'm being sarcastic, it's on them for what they do, not me."

Adolf Hitler once said, rather sarcastically, “Well then, why don’t we just imprison all the Jews, gas them to death, and then burn the bodies.”  Hitler’s words were taken quite literally by his SS minions  and millions of Jews died because of it. Hitler’s response to this was to say, “Well, if people are so stupid as to not know when I’m being sarcastic, it’s on them if they do what I said to do, not me.”

 

3.)

When learning the Americans had an atomic weapon and what it could do if used, President Truman sarcastically said, "Well go ahead and drop the fucking thing then. Hell, drop two of the mother fuckers. That'll learn 'em, eh?" After the bombs were dropped, Truman was reported to have said, "WHAT! I didn't actually mean what I said. I was being sarcastic. What kind of idiots do I have working for me?"

What kind of idiots do I have working for me?”

 

4.)

Nixon said once, quite sarcastically, I'll add, "I think we should put a bug in the Watergate Hotel so we can hear what those stinking Democrats are planning." Upon leaving office to avoid an impeachment because his men actually did what he suggested, Nixon said," The biggest problem with Americans is they simply don't know when someone's being sarcastic."

Chicago Woman Loses Mind In Target Restroom

Penelope Prickle

Chicago, Illinois.    A 76-year-old Chicago woman named Penelope Prickle is claiming she lost her mind this morning while using the restroom in a local Target store.    “I’m not talking figuratively here,” Ms. Prickle said earlier.  “I went to the restroom at Target, and when I came out, I immediately noticed my head felt about 3 pounds lighter than when I went in.   I instantly knew I’d literally lost my mind, aka, my brain, somewhere in that restroom.   This has happened to me before.  Once, while at a Cubs game, I noticed my mind had slipped from my head.  Luckily, it had fallen into the lap of the guy sitting next to me, and he returned it.  This time, however, I’ve been unable to locate it.  I looked everywhere in that bathroom, and I can’t find it.  I’m starting to wonder if it didn’t fall into the toilet whilst I was wiping myself, and I inadvertently flushed it away.   I’m hoping that’s not the case and a cleaning person finds it and returns it to lost and found.  It’s hard walking around without a mind.  If anyone comes across it, please email me at penelopeprick.l@gmail.com and I’ll come get it.  Thanks, and have a pleasant day.”

Rio, Not An American City.    For the first time since Gold Fish Racing was introduced to the Summer Olympics in 1978, an American goldfish has won the gold.   “I’ve been practicing since I was no bigger than a guppy to be the fastest swimming goldfish in the world, and now, that dream has finally become reality for me,” said Gold Medal winner, Gerry “Wet” Scales.   “I’d like to thank my moms and pops for all their support over the years.  They taught me that with perseverance and a diet of fresh blood worms, anything is possible.  I’ve never been prouder to be a goldfish and an American.  This is just so AWESOME!  As soon as I get home, I’m taking my girlfriend to Disney Land to celebrate.”

 

Why we still fight

Please read this terrific piece by the Secular Jurist.

The Secular Jurist

By Robert A. Vella

We progressives, that is;  and, our ranks are thinning with each passing day.  But, we are still fighting;  and, we’ll continue to do so despite the mounting odds against us.  Why, you ask?  Because what we’re fighting for is both central to our very nature as progressives, and because the world would be in even worse shape should our collective voices fall silent.

First of all, I shall dispel a myth.  Progressivism is not synonymous with, nor is it aligned with, the Democratic Party or any political party.  It emerged in the 1890s as a social movement against the rampant abuses of corporate power prevalent in the Gilded Age.  In fact, two of the leading champions of progressivism were originally Republicans – President Theodore Roosevelt and prominent Wisconsin politician Robert La Follette.

The reason why today’s Democratic Party is commonly misperceived as being progressive results…

Holocaust Deniers Now Saying WW2 Never Happened

Professor Walter Witless Of Trump University

Professor Walter Witless Of Trump University

Ya Gots Ta Be Kiddin’ City, Ohio.     Hundreds of Holocaust deniers, lead by Professor Walter Witless of Trump University, are now claiming that WW2 never happened and was, instead, a conspiracy of lies started by F.D.R., Barrack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Humphrey Bogart to create jobs for Jewish movie producers in Hollywood.   “Look, man,” Professor Witless said earlier, “ain’t it obvious?   Where the hell would Hollywood movies be without the myth of WW2?  WHERE?  Non-existent, that’s where.  Jewish producers in Hollywood, during the late 30’s and early 40’s, were going bankrupt because no one was going to see their movies.   This is an absolute fact which can be verified very easily if you simply believe everything I’m saying without question.   So, what happened is this.  F.D.R., Clinton, Obama, and Bogart, all Jews, BTW, got the editors of every major newspaper  in the world together, and, at gun point, threatened to shoot them dead if they did not write that a world war was going on and a maniac named Hitler was killing Jews in Europe.   Fearing for their lives, they did as they were told.  And, bravo, WW2 was created with one of the greatest villains in history to dominate it, Adolph Hitler.  I mean, COME ON!  No one in real life could ever be as grotesquely evil as that guy.   Needless to say, after this fiction was created and sold to the world as real, the movie business began to boom as movie after movie about it was made and sold to an eagerly awaiting public.  This goes on in Hollywood to this day.   So. as you can now deduce, since WW2 actually never happened, how could any Jews have been killed in it?  They couldn’t have.   The Holocaust never happened because WW2 never happened.  I rest my well-argued case.  Have a pleasant day.”

Trump Supporters In Action

I’ve very few words for this New York Times compilation video showing Trump supporters spewing hatred at his rallies over the past year.  I hope the GOP is proud of the Presidential candidate its voting base has elected.   I’ve issues with Hillary Clinton, many, but I seriously doubt people are shouting racial slurs, misogynistic rhetoric and threats to kill Mexican people and Trump, at her rallies.   This video is a must see.  What a shameful time to be an American.   VIEW VIDEO
