While driving up to Houston this morning for the company required UKOG physical, I was listening to my favorite radio station (KPFT). They had a talk show on where they were making a huge big deal out of Donald Trump’s re-tweeting a certain quote.
This is news today?
Apparently someone was trying to ‘trick’ Trump into re-tweeting quotes by Mussolini
Update, 11:45 a.m.: Gawker revealed it was their doing. The website created a bot in December to periodically spit out Mussolini quotes and credit them to Trump, hoping the presidential hopeful would eventually retweet them. “At the time of the account’s creation, Gawker Media Executive Editor John Cook expressed some concern that the joke behind the account was far too obvious, and wouldn’t trick anyone but a complete idiot,” writes Gawker’s Alex Pareene.
I’m not really sure what the point of that exercise was. Unless it was to create the kind of silly media firestorm that was going on this morning.
They were going on about would Trump endorse a quote by David Duke (former KKK leader), since he apparently endorsed a quote by Mussolini. I say, SO WHAT if he did!?
I’m not a big fan of Trump. I think he’s a jerk. I don’t think he would make a good President, but I think the same thing about all the rest of the republicrats running. I have no problem with the media attacking a candidate on real issues. Attack Trump on the Wall, on his temper and how he thinks he would deal with foreign leaders. But a retweet on twitter? About an outlook on life? Simply because of WHO said it before? WTF???
First of all, here’s the quote…
“It is better to live one day as a lion than 100 years as a sheep.”
Will somebody please tell me what’s wrong with that? I mean the content, not who originally happened to say it.
Hey, I would say that myself! I DO feel that way. I don’t understand all the people who would rather live like sheep. I don’t get that mindset at all.
To me, life is about living the way YOU want to live YOUR life! It’s NOT about following the leader, never taking chances or never having any responsibility.
This is the way I feel about life…
What’s the deal now? We can never express a view that someone we despise now happened to express in the past? Can’t some people we hate now have had some good ideas?
Does liking a quote somebody said once, mean that you love and endorse everything that person ever said or did?
I hope not, but that’s the way the media is playing it. Seems like the way the media plays it is the way most Americans see things.
Living like a lion means thinking for YOURSELF! It means living YOUR life in freedom, the way we were all meant to live.
Here’s a link to one story about it, here’s another. You can google Trumps Mussolini quote if you really want to read more about it. I’ll leave you with one more graphic (none of these are mine- they all come straight off google).
Let me know what you think, do you think they should make a big deal out of WHO said something rather than WHAT they said? Do you think Trump is a jerk? Why or why not? What about the rest of the republicrats? What do you think about the lion vs sheep idea? Would you rather live like a lion or a sheep? Why or why not? No need to go into why you can’t live like a lion (if that’s your preference). I already understand that well enough. 😉
