In honor of the life of “The Greatest” man who shook up the world, Muhammad Ali, this article has been reposted on June 5, 2016.
It’s over, Trump.
The GOP contender, Donald Trump might as well find that white towel while he can still see. You know, kind of like the self preservation tactic billionaires use before they have to pay “humungunomous” debts. They would find that attorney of theirs QUICK and file bankruptcy Chapters 7, 11, and 13.
The most globally recognized, heroic, living icon on the planet just knocked Trump out cold. Oh, and by the way…he’s Muslim. His name? The Champ, otherwise known as Muhammad Ali.
Donald Trump, you have “bragadociously” barked up the wrong universal beanstalk. When the most admired, respected, and identifiable global giant gets roused, masses of millions of people from every ethnic origin and corner of the world will listen.
When a man is truly great, he doesn’t need to move a muscle to shake up the world. For when he showed the world how to “float like a butterfly and sting like a bee”, the reverberations continued in the earth for decades to come.
“Muhammad Ali aims message at Donald Trump: Terrorism perverts ‘what Islam really is’ “
“Muhammad Ali aimed a powerful and impassioned message at Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on Wednesday, saying that the recent global terrorism crisis has “perverted people’s views on what Islam really is.”
Ali became a Muslim and changed his name from Cassius Clay during the height of his career as one of the greatest boxers in history. His message came in a statement following a week in which Trump cast doubt on President Barack Obama’s assertion that several American “sporting heroes” practiced Islam.
“I am a Muslim, and there is nothing Islamic about killing innocent people in Paris, San Bernardino, or anywhere else in the world,” Ali said. “True Muslims know the ruthless violence of so-called Islamic Jihadists goes against the very tenets of our religion.
“We, as Muslims, have to stand up to those who use Islam to advance their own personal agenda. They have alienated many from learning about Islam. True Muslims know or should know that it goes against our religion to try and force Islam on anybody.”
One of the main principles of Trump’s campaign has been taking a hard line on immigration. In the wake of the San Bernardino mass shooting that killed 14 people last week, Trump called for the establishment of a national Muslim database and for restrictions on Muslims wishing to travel to the United States.
Ali’s political views did not endear him to the establishment in the 1960s, and his affiliation with the Nation of Islam ignited controversy during his reign as world heavyweight champion…
Ali said, “I believe that our political leaders should use their position to bring understanding about the religion of Islam and clarify that these misguided murderers have perverted people’s views on what Islam really is.”
What can a person possibly do or say when The Champ has just knocked them out cold, without even leaving his heavyweight throne?
Mr. Trump, many people are now fully aware that you are not what’s considered a good man. Instead of using your spotlight to stand up for what is right and unifying, you pander to people’s fears.
You have built a wall all right. Now you’re boxed in its’ corner…by the “greatest of all time”.
Needless to say, you are a far cry from the greatness of a Muhammad Ali. “The Greatest” is a man who showed the world that he stood for peace and justice, still does, has never wavered on his positions, then keeps on coming until his opponent recognizes that they’ve been a dope before Ali ever stepped in the ring.
It would be absolutely logical at this point Mr. Trump to “run things like you run business,” starting with this debacle of a presidential campaign. Since you’re familiar with exit strategies, here’s one that will work well:
- Find white towel
- Wave white towel
- Fire everybody and blame your knock-out on a technicality / TKO
- Watch private jet power up
- With windblown hair, turn to camera and wave
- Exit stage left, board multi-million dollar jet, fix hair and a drink
