Facts Matter, Not Your Feelings[edit]

Beyond My Ken, you are reverting changes wholesale without discussion again. I don't know why you did it before but you were called down for it and admonished to not do it again. I'm willing to discuss my reason for the changes I made and will make again. If you revert again without discussion I will go to the powers that be.Shellus Maximus 23:56, 18 February 2019 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Daddyman1962 (talkcontribs)

Per WP:BRD, I don't need to have a discussion to revert edits which I dispute, you need to get a consensus to change the wording of the long-standing WP:STATUSQUO version of this article.
This is your chance to convince the people who watch this article that you are correct, and that I am wrong. Don't waste it with personal attacks and irrelevancies, make your case, and if you get a consensus, so be it. But until then the article stays in the status quo ante per Wikipedia policy. Please, do not change it back to your preferred version again. Beyond My Ken (talk) 00:06, 19 February 2019 (UTC)
In my opinion the Trump episode is important And should be included. One reason we have this long article, is because Pershing was seen as important by millions of Americans (and Europeans). If this misinformation about Pershing is so serious that it gets repeated at the presidential level, then Wikipedia is a natural source that many people will refer to to get the actual facts. So I support Beyond My Ken here. Atrocity stories are very serious matter – in recent years statues in the United States have been torn down because the person they represented behaved badly 150 years ago.
