How to use fictional in a sentence?

  1. Kenneth Nail:

    Nikki Haley announced. Since then, at least 60 public Confederate symbols have been removed since the 2015 church shooting, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center. Most recently, the city of St. Louis, Mo., removed a Confedearte monument -- a 32-foot-tall granite column with a bronze sculpture -- from a park. Complicating the debate for those opposed to these moves is the involvement of hate groups like the KKK. The group is planning a rally for July 8 following a decision by the city council in Charlottesville, Va., to remove a statue of Gen. Lee Park and rename Lee Park. Meanwhile, in April, New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu ordered the removal of multiple Confederate statutes. New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu received brutal backlash and was forced to have heavy police presence in place when the nighttime removals began. Despite threats that people would boycott New Orleans, New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu did not back down. These statues are not just stone and metal, New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu said in a highly lauded speech after the last Confederate statue had been taken down. They are not just innocent remembrances of a benign history. These monuments purposefully celebrate a fictional, sanitized Confederacy ; ignoring the death, ignoring the enslavement and the terror that it actually stood for. But to others, like Kenneth Nail Nail, it’s not about oppression. To us, it’s not a hate thing. It’s a heritage thing and what we like to do is celebrate everyone's struggles : the blacks, the whites, the north and south.

  2. Isaac Asimov:

    It is change, continuing change, inevitable change, that is the dominant factor in society today. No sensible decision can be made any longer without taking into account not only the world as it is, but the world as it will be. This, in turn, means that our statesmen, our businessmen, our every man must take on a science fictional way of thinking.

  3. Fiona Hill:

    Based on questions and statements I have heard, some of you on this committee appear to believe that Russia and its security services did not conduct a campaign against our country — and that perhaps, somehow, for some reason, Ukraine did, this is a fictional narrative that has been perpetrated and propagated by the Russian security services themselves.

  4. Christoph Hartmann:

    We're committed to bringing customers games of the highest quality, both with our own original IP as well as beloved cultural pillars like' The Lord of the Rings,' tolkien's Middle-earth is one of the richest fictional worlds in history, and it gives our team of experienced MMO developers -- from the same studio developing' New World' -- tremendous opportunity to play and create.

  5. Quentin Tarantino:

    Could Cliff Booth beat up Bruce Lee ? Brad Pitt would not be able to beat up Bruce Lee, but Cliff Booth maybe could, if you ask me the question,' Well, who would win in a fight : Bruce Lee or Dracula ?' It's the same question. It's a fictional character. If I say Cliff Booth could beat Bruce Lee up, Cliff Booth's a fictional character, then Cliff Booth could beat Bruce Lee up.
