— Abraham Lincoln. Wise man.
Abraham Lincoln was a wise man—which is probably why he never spouted that sort of propaganda. These words were actually written by William John Henry Boetcker, who served as director of the anti-union Citizens’ Industrial Alliance.
Heritage, you really need to do your research on these things. (You really are from The Heritage Foundation, right? You’re not just trolling me?) Surely that must have struck you as a bit too convenient? It would be like me being able to attribute a quote about the importance of allowing the top-brackets of the Bush tax cuts to expire to either Ghandi or Reagan.
In the interest of either not further duping your more gullible readers or playing this prank out to its fullest, could you modify the image to attribute the quote to “Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter”?
Edit: Rather than editing the image as I suggested, The Heritage Foundation has quietly taken it down. However, the image has since been reblogged by a whole lot of conservatives, so I’m going to leave this correction here.
BURN! Don’t you hate when facts get in the way of a good story?
