I've had this one in the "hopper" for a while. There's not a lot of details here, just a lot of words. It's really not even about Harry Truman.
This is about how The Left will never, ever, ever let Richard Nixon rest in peace. When the Libs get desperate, they will eventually make a reference to Republican President Richard. It's the Liberal equivalent of Godwin's Law .
"As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Hitler approaches —that is, if an online discussion (regardless of topic or scope) goes on long enough - sooner or later someone will compare someone or something to Hitler or his deeds."I searched for it, and couldn't find any similar "law" applicable to Nixon or Watergate.
|Richard Nixon, 1913-1994, 37th President: Jan. 1969-Aug. 1974|
Drake's Law. "The longer a Liberal talks, or the more desperate and unhinged they become, sooner or later, they will reference Nixon."
Hillary Clinton did just that, in May, 2017, in her Wellesley College Commencement: The NYT:
[Clinton] referred to an "assault on truth and reason," criticized Mr. Trump’s proposed budget, and drew parallels to Richard Nixon and his ultimate fate[.]And because some pages eventually become replaced, expire or "story not found" - meaning the linked story; here are a few additional sources of the same story of Clinton referencing Nixon at Wellesley. You don't have to click on them or read them, they are there as additional references of the same story.
The HuPoPoo : "Hillary Clinton compare[s] Trump to Nixon."
The N.Y. Daily News: "Clinton hints at Trump impeachment as she invokes Nixon."
CNN: "Clinton compares Trump to Nixon in fiery speech at alma mater ..."
NDTV: "Hillary [brings up Nixon] at Commencement Speech."
Okay, we know the drill. Libs bringing up Nixon (or Watergate) increases in proportion to the decreasing level of their political clout and/or how desperate that Liberal becomes.
We need to counter this unending reference about Nixon made by Liberals and throw it back at them; diplomatically of course, but one can be diplomatic and sarcastic at the same time. You know that!
Enter: Harry "Give 'em hell, Harry!" Truman.
I propose this:
Every non-Liberal politician or candidate, or any of us who engage in conversation with our snowflake friends, needs to work into every statement the following words, "Well, you know, the only president to drop two atomic bombs was Harry Truman, and he was a DEMOCRAT!"
And I cannot stress this enough; over-emphasize the word "Democrat", thereby conveying that delightful little thing called sarcasm.
Conversations can vary; improvise from the templates below:
Reporter: "[INSERT NAME OF NON-LIBERAL POLITICIAN OR CANDIDATE HERE], what is your position on global climate change?"
Non-Liberal Politician or Candidate: "That's a very serious issue, but first, let me say that Harry Truman, a DEMOCRAT PRESIDENT, was the only president, the only leader, who has ever dropped atomic bombs killing thousands of innocent lives. Now, about that global climate change..."
Interviewer: "[INSERT NAME OF NON-LIBERAL POLITICIAN OR CANDIDATE HERE], what is your position for LGBT serving in the military?"
Non-Liberal Politician or Candidate: "That certainly has been a hot topic in the news, hasn't it? But, did you know that the only president or world leader to drop two atomic bombs was Harry Truman and he was a DEMOCRAT? Didja know that? It's true. Now, about the LGBT, military issue..."
See, see how easy it is? I encourage all non-Liberal minded people to use this phrase in discussions with Liberals. And don't bother to wait any length of time before you bring it up, unlike Godwin's Law. Bring it up right away and mention if often.
Your Liberal (brother, sister, friend, etc): "Hi, how are you?"
You: (clear throat), "Well, you know, the only president or world leader who dropped two atomic bombs was Harry Truman and he was a DEMOCRAT. And I'm fine. How 'bout you, want a beer?"
(Caution advised/suggestion; you many not want to use the above example with your mother andor father in-law because they probably hate you already, and have hated you since the moment you became part of their family).
Or, during family celebrations, holidays or dinners:
Anyone at the table to you: "Would you please pass me the bread."
You: "I'd be happy to, along with the fact that Harry Truman was a DEMOCRAT and the only president to drop two, count 'em two, atomic bombs."
I don't need to complete this sentence; "if Harry Truman had been a Republican, the Liberals would never forget to remind us that he..."
