In my search for images for the weekly link post, I found this image…
Here is the correction/translation…
“Blessed are the bigoted, for they shall never be at fault.”
“These Negroes, they’re getting pretty uppity these days and that’s a problem for us since they’ve got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness. Now we’ve got to do something about this, we’ve got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference. For if we don’t move at all, then their allies will line up against us and there’ll be no way of stopping them, we’ll lose the filibuster and there’ll be no way of putting a brake on all sorts of wild legislation. It’ll be Reconstruction all over again.”
Or, perhaps that great conservative, Margaret Sanger…
“We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population. and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”
Margaret Sanger’s December 19, 1939 letter to Dr. Clarence Gamble, 255 Adams Street, Milton, Massachusetts. Original source: Sophia Smith Collection, Smith College, North Hampton, Massachusetts. Also described in Linda Gordon’s Woman’s Body, Woman’s Right: A Social History of Birth Control in America. New York: Grossman Publishers, 1976.
I’m sure that’s what the guy who made the image had in mind. Or, what about all the regressives that violently resist any attempt to allow blacks to escape horrific schools? Yeah, they must be conservatives too!
“Blessed are the selfish, for they shall always have taxes to blame.”
You mean, the people that demand that the government steal from others, and give to them? Because, nothing says altruism like demanding the fruits of someone else’s labor.
“Blessed are the conservative poor, for they shall always vote against their own best interest.”
Yeah, because becoming permanently dependent on government is everyone’s goal, as opposed to maybe getting a job? Is self interest being able to make one’s own way, or having the government manage all aspects of human life? I guess for regressives, being under the thumb of government is self interest.
“Blessed are the self-loathing, for they shall always have a church to feed their misery.”
You mean, like the greenies that want most of the human race to die, or at least live under subsistence agriculture? Well, that is a stretch, because they don’t self loath, they loath others, and never seem to live in the way that they propose for the rest of us.
“Blessed are those who don’t know history, for they shall always fight against a better way.”
Yeah, because socialism really didn’t kill 100,000,000 people in the last century, and Europe hasn’t run out of “other people’s money.” This time, it’ll really work, right?
“Blessed are the willfully ignorant, for they shall never crave freedom.”
If in freedom, you mean…
1. Government telling you when to eat.
2. Government telling you where to live.
3. Government telling you what you can drive, or if you can.
4. Government telling you how much you can be paid.
5. Government telling you, “sorry, your treatment is too expensive, time to take the pain pill rather than the expensive operation.”
Yes, there are a ton more. But, as well all know, “freedom” means having the government control your life from cradle to grave. But hey, forget history, because you friendly local regressives are more than happy to re-write it for you!
“Blessed are the filthy rich, for our Heavenly Father bestows wealth only to the deserving.”
Yeah, because of someone made money, they had to steal it from someone else, right?
“Blessed are the blindly devout and fiercely loyal, for they shall always keep the corrupt from being brought to justice.”
Yeah, because having the AG lie to Congress repeatedly, getting funny mortgages from criminals, committing perjury, and the like are completely excusable, and should be overlooked. Just pay attention to the MSM, they won’t cover it!
Well, that was fun, and incredibly easy.
