are the poor in spirit: for they are wimps who won’t
get in our way.
are they that mourn: for that means we’ve hit them
where it hurts and that they’re feeling too sorry
for themselves to do anything about it.
are the meek: for they want somebody else to take
the tough decisions and can in any case be trampled
are they which do hunger and thirst after
righteousness: for they want simple answers to
complex problems and can easily be manipulated.
are the merciful: for they shall forgive us whatever
are the pure in heart: for they are suckers who
don’t see the world as it is or us as we are.
are the peacemakers: for they shall be too busy
looking for a compromise solution to take a clear
stand against us, even if they see through what we
say and understand what we want.
are they which are persecuted for righteousness’
sake: for it’s easier to deal with people who want
to be martyrs than with people who want the top
do so carefully so that their martyrdom doesn’t
attract more recruits to their cause.
are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute
you, and shall say all manner of evil against you
falsely, for my sake: for all publicity is good
publicity as long as we don’t offend whatever the
current politically correct double standards may be.
