Free Meme: Contempt for the Victims

bs-contempt-for-the-poor

Here is another free meme from me that can be shared far and wide in unchanged form. A clickable link to this site would be appreciated, but is not required.

This meme contains a great quote from the excellent blogger C.A. Matthews (How does it define us as a people if we treat those who are powerless or without privilege with contempt? How are we made “great” by making others “small”?). It is well in line with recent and upcoming topics on Beanstock’s World.

C.A. Matthews’ great line started out last Tuesday’s publication. Here is the link: The Revolution Continues 1/9/2018

Here are a few more quotes to wet your appetite: 

Sister Joan Chittister, O.S.B., sums up the hypocrisy in the so-called “pro-life” movement in this statement:

I do not believe that just because you’re opposed to abortion, that that makes you pro-life. In fact, I think in many cases, your morality is deeply lacking if all you want is a child born but not a child fed, not a child educated, not a child housed. And why would I think that you don’t? Because you don’t want any tax money to go there. That’s not pro-life. That’s pro-birth. We need a much broader conversation on what the morality of pro-life is.”

How can some shout “We’re making America Great Again!” while allowing it to fall into an abyss of greed? It makes no sense. If greed is our country’s creed, we were never truly “great” in the first place.”

Scott Pruitt is a climate denier who has spent his career suing the Environmental Protection Agency. Now that he’s leading that same agency, he’s spent his first year in office remaking it to the benefit of Big Oil. Pruitt pushed out more than 700 agency staff and started monitoring the emails of anyone who expressed concerns with the agency’s direction. He took steps to gut the Clean Power Plan.

[Another section warns of more government spying on us and calls to action.]

The Tuesday post of The Revolution Continues had (as so often) its own powerful memes, at least three I really liked. You may like them, too. So, I recommend you visit there.

Tuesday’s publication on The Revolution Continues also linked to another site’s great article: Time To Make Life Hard For The Rich

A good read!
