All life is sacred and begins at conception, but we must deny life-saving medical care to the poor; deprive needy children of food, shelter, clothing; beat, bomb, shoot, hang to death men, women, children. Deeply held religious beliefs require tax exemptions, and forbid paying for women's reproductive health; deny funds for science education/research; allow financing of civilian-killing drones. Children are a gift from god, a reward from him, but we must rip children from their mother's breasts, their father's arms; warehouse them in tent cities despite extreme heat; cage, torment, and traumatize them while they're alone. Religious freedom must always be protected, but we must ignore Muslims', Jews', Sikhs', Pagans', Hindus' rights; reject religions that conflict with our beliefs; obligate others to observe our holy days. The bible is god's word, taken literally, but we must claim verses we disagree with are old fashioned; invent prohibitions never mentioned in text; judge harshly those who follow actual scripture. States retain sovereignty and powers not assigned, but must not be allowed to legalize cannabis; can't protect the Internet from telecom greed; can't pass sanctuary laws to protect migrants. We must save sex workers from human trafficking, but we must eliminate safe ways for them to find clients; force them onto the street, vulnerable to pimps; allow police to rape, rob, arrest, murder them. The homeless crisis is a city emergency, but we must criminalize public camping, sitting, sleeping; protest attempts to open neighborhood shelters; fight rent control and minimum-wage increases. Congress must cut taxes and frivolous spending, but must slash payments only for the rich, adding trillions to the debt; spend more on defense than seven countries combined; take food away from babies, seniors to compensate. The hoax pandemic became an emergency that requires huge corporate bailouts, no strings attached; loans to small businesses, with myriad conditions; pittance pay outs that won't cover rent to minimum-wage slaves. All life is sacred and begins at conception, but we must only make testing available to the rich and celebrated; sacrifice seniors and children to save the stock market; prevent "prioritizing human life over economic stability".
