Liberal Hack Frederica Wilson Accuses General Kelly of Racism — For Using Term Credited to Plato and Shakespeare
Far left hack Frederica Wilson went on CNN and accused White House Chief of Staff General John Kelly of being a racist.
General Kelly described loudmouth Wilson of being an “empty barrel” for shooting her mouth off without thinking.
Frederica Wilson accused General Kelly of being racist for using the term “empty barrel.”
Plato and William Shakespeare were also credited to using the term.
Many credit Plato for bringing “empty barrel” into the vernacular: “An empty vessel makes the loudest sound, so they that have the least wit are the greatest babblers.” Some believe the proverb truly has Jamaican origins, while others credit it as Spanish. A book of world proverbs gives 21 variations of the expression.
Shakespeare channeled Plato in Henry V, writing, “I never heard so loud a voice issue from such an empty heart. It’s true what they say, the empty vessel makes the greatest sound.”
The Trump White House stands by General Kelly and his statements on the empty barrel.
