* At the meeting on 10 November 2007, Venezuela's then-president Hugo Chávez repeatedly interrupted Prime Minister of Spain José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero's speech to call his predecessor, José María Aznar, a "fascist" and "less human than snakes",and accuse Aznar of having supported a failed coup d'état aimed at removing Chávez from power. Zapatero had earlier irritated Chávez by suggesting that Latin America needed to attract more foreign capital to combat its "chronic, deepening poverty", and claimed that Chávez's policies scared investors out of Latin America. Chávez's attacks became so strong that Zapatero rose to Aznar's defence, even though he had been severely critical of Aznar in the past. Zapatero pointed out that Aznar had been democratically elected and was "a legitimate representative of the Spanish people". Although organizers switched off Chávez's microphone, he continued to interrupt as Zapatero defended Aznar.

At this point, King Juan Carlos of Spain leaned forward, turned towards his fellow head of state, and said, "''¿Por qué no te callas?''" (why don't you shut up?). The king's rebuke received applause from the general audience. He addressed Chávez using the familiar form of "you". (In Spanish, ''tú'' is usually used for close friends, family, or children and can be regarded as insulting when used in other circumstances.)

* During UsefulNotes/WorldWarOne, the German colonial troops in Africa were led by Paul von Lettow-Vorbeck. Under his extremely effective leadership and completely cut off from German supply, white Germans and black Askaris waged the most brilliant campaign of the war, when his 14,000 soldiers held down a British force of over ''300,000'' and became the only German soldiers to invade imperial British territory. After Germany's defeat and the beginning of the ''Nazizeit'', the elderly general was offered the position of Ambassador to Britain by UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler personally. What von Lettow-Vorbeck said is not precisely recorded, but they say that when someone said they had heard the old general had "told Hitler to go fuck himself," the nephew responded, "I don't think he put it that politely."
* An interesting RealLife occurrence occurred on Indian reservations in TheThirties. The Nazis [[ExploitedTrope thought Indians had little loyalty to America]] and would help them. In addition, the Nazis saw Indians as [[MagicalNativeAmerican lost Aryans]]. Further, they saw their plans for the Jews as little different than if Indians killed all the white people, which they figured Indians wanted to do. So a lot of Nazi propaganda was distributed on reservations by German anthropologists (also collecting intelligence in case [[GenreSavvy Indian languages were used as codes]]). The result? Possibly the most epic ShutUpHannibal ever: tribes declared war (or renewed declarations of war from [[WorldWarOne the last time]]) on Germany even before the United States did. [[HeWhoFightsMonsters Fascist and Nazi ideas were outlawed.]] And when the United States finally did declare war, Indians from their mid-teens all the way to their forties signed up, lying about their age when need be. And of course--the Germans couldn't tackle every Indian language, and thus the Navajo language was used by the US military as yet another critical part of the Allies' ''giant'' intelligence advantage in the War.

* At the Congo's independence ceremony in June 1960, the Belgian King Leopold gave a pompous speech on [[WhiteMansBurden all the contributions the Belgian's made in the country]]. Patrice Lumumba, however, called out the Belgian government for its mistreatment of the Congolese throughout its history. His passionate and unapologetic retort toward King Leopold was so powerful that it caused the Belgian king to ''RageQuit''.

--> '''Kevin Senapathy''': To paint Tribeca’s decision as a conspiracy, as censorship and, laughably, as denial of due process is a sham. Andrew Wakefield has already caused enough death and disease, and he rightfully doesn’t get a respectable platform like Tribeca Film Festival to further spread his destruction. There are plenty of fringe quackery platforms for that.

* On April 28, 1988, the TV-broadcast French presidential debate occurs between then President François Mitterand (left-wing) and his current Prime minister, right-wing Jacques Chirac. After two years of "cohabitation", the tensions between them are already well-known, but it reaches its peak when Chirac says, "Allow me to say that this evening, I am not the Prime minister, and you are not the President of the Republic: we are two candidates... equals... and that submit themselves to the judgment of the French... the only one that counts. You will therefore permit me to call you Monsieur Mitterrand!" Then, Mitterrand answers [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=btDazmTDCU4 "You are perfectly right about that, Mister Prime minister".]] What happens next? Until the end of the debate, Chirac calls his adversary "Mister President". He lost the election, until the next one.
