General Pershing put down the Muslim Moro Rebellion almost overnight by having his soldiers dip their bullets in pigs blood and let the Muslim insurgents know it. If we were serious about ending Islamic terrorism we would do this. Apparently Trump may be. Watch how the left will decry this as worse than Islamic terrorism itself.

If he knows who the terrorists are, arrest them. The entire story about Pershing is fake anyway, Lewandowski said they knew it was fake, but told it anyway because his idiot supporters would lap it up. He was right. From the man who needs to wait for all the facts and calls anything negative about him "fake news"

This is not true, that is the MSM narrative. This is what President Trump "alludes" to:

Pershing enacted the following reforms during his tenure as governor:

In order to extend rule of law into the interior, Pershing stationed the Philippine Scouts in small detachments throughout the interior. This reduced crime and promoted agriculture and trade, at the cost of reduced military efficiency and troop training. The benefits of this reform outweighed the costs.

The legal system was streamlined. Previously, trials had started with at the Court of First Instance, which convened every 6 months, and appeals to the Supreme Court in Manila often took more than one year. Pershing expanded the jurisdiction of the local ward courts, which were presided over by the district governors and secretaries, to include most civil cases and all criminal cases except for capital offenses. The Court of First Instance became the court of last resort. This reform was popular with the Moros, since it was quick, simple, and resembled their traditional unification of executive and judicial powers.

Pershing promised to donate government land for purposes of building Muslim houses of worship.

Pershing recognized the practice of sacopy – indentured servitude in exchange for support and protection – as legitimate, but reaffirmed the government's opposition to involuntary slavery.

Labor contract law reform of 1912. Defaults on contracts by workers or employers were no longer punishable unless there was intent to defraud or injure. Moros, unused to Western notions of work, were prone to absenteeism, which could lead to breach of contract suits.

The economy of Moro Province continued to expand under Pershing. The three most important exports – hemp, copra, and lumber – increased 163% during his first three years, and Moros began to make bank deposits for the first time in their history.

The Moro Exchange system was retained and was supplemented by Industrial Trading Stations. These stations operated in the interior, where merchants seldom went, and bought any non-perishable goods the Moros wished to sell. The stations also sold goods to the Moros at fair prices, preventing price gouging during famines.

Pershing does mention something related to pigs though.

These juramentado were materially reduced in number by a practice the army had already adopted, one that the Mohammedans held in abhorrence. The bodies were publicly buried in the same grave with a dead pig. It was not pleasant to take such measures but the prospect of going to hell instead of heaven sometimes deterred the would-be assassins.

Good find but watch the first 2-3 minutes of the documentary i linked to. Focusing on pig blood is shooting ourselves in the foot. This is the narrative being pushed by the shills. Successfully, might i say, trying to do damage control.

Pershing did many other things and local muslims loved him.

Was wondering when this would come up.

I'm almost 100% certain that the media will pick up the apocryphal pigs-blood story and that Trump wants them to do so.

They already picked it up, google Trump Pershing. The thing is, Trump did say the pigs blood stuff in 2016 but check his words now. He said "study" Pershing, if there is fake news, it is always covering up for something real.

Time to call off the party guys, Snopes says this is "FALSE!"

https://archive.is/0C9Zv

I mean, sure they say that it occurred, and at most they could only find a source or two that claimed someone under Pershing did it other than Pershing himself, or that he threatened to do it but sort-of maybe he didn't actually do it...But it's false because:

Nonetheless, the desire for simplistic solutions to complex problems has spawned several widely-circulated notions that seek to transform a fight against terrorism to the easily-manageable level of a horror film or a comic strip. One popular notion is the concept that a pig is to a Muslim as a crucifix is to a vampire: simply arm yourself with a porker, and you can use it to render even the most fanatical terrorist helpless, sending him cowering in fear lest he come into contact with anything porcine.

and then a bunch of stuff about his other strategic maneuvers to try and win the conflict, as if Trump was claiming that Pershing took only one action to try and stop a war.

They also fail to mention that it's undisputed that Pershing using pigs against Muslims on other occasions!

"The bodies were publicly buried in the same grave with a dead pig,” Pershing wrote. “It was not pleasant to have to take such measures, but the prospect of going to hell instead of heaven sometimes deterred the would-be assassins.”

You won't find that in the article. You also won't find older versions of Snopes' article which previously say that it was "doubtful," not "FALSE," because Snopes has required The Internet Archive to purge all its old content, dumping it down the memory hole. Unfortunately for Snopes, they're unable to remove conversations that refer to their articles:

https://archive.is/6XJnf

Snopes only became certain that this story was false when they decided it'd be useful ammunition against Trump. Like many agenda-driven outlets, they're lying and then tried to rewrite history to pretend that they didn't previously hold a different opinion.

Yeah, and he released the survivors to tell the rest of the Muslim insurrection what he did.
