Entertainment 18 August, 2017


A few hours after the attack that hit Barcelona this Thursday, being 13 dead and 100 injured, Donald Trump has relayed on Twitter a story that would result in more of an urban legend according to which an american general is said to have executed muslims with bullets soaked in pig blood.

Donald Trump has not made time, this Thursday, to denounce on Twitter the attack in the van claimed by Daech, yesterday in Barcelona. And if in a first time he has ” condemned “ the attack in the name of the United States and assured that his country would give ” all necessary assistance “, he continued by a second message of a any other content. And for cause, the tenant of the White House has invited its subscribers to “study “the response that would be provided to “terrorists” an american general during the occupation of the Philippines. “Think of what the general Pershing of the United States has made to the terrorists it has caught. There has been more islamist terrorism radical for 35 years “.

A tweet oh how doubtful in which the spouse of Mélania Trump made reference to an urban legend of the american occupation of the Philippines, according to which general John Pershing would have run in 1908, 49 muslim prisoners the filipinos-with – an unclean animal according to muslim tradition. He would then bury them wrapped in pig skin. General Pershing was, at the time, governor of the Moro, a muslim province of the Philippines in the throes of an insurgency. In addition, always according to this legend, he would have released the 50th prisoner to which he bears testimony with the other rebels, who, frightened by the prospect of not going to heaven, would have deposited the weapons.

Two famous sites of fact checking, Snopes, and Politifact, claim that the story of the american president is an urban legend. To Snopes noted to have ” found no reference to this incident in the biography of Pershing, and it does not correspond to the way in which Pershing was with the Moros “.
