After the recent story about NRO doctoring a photo was posted, the link to it was posted on fark.com. Fark user “Mr. Cat Poop” commented that he also exposed a similar case of deceitful use of a photo by using reverse image search.
This was shared thousands of times on Facebook, where “Mr. Cat Poop” first saw it, including such Facebook pages such as Positively Republican, where the comments on the story are filled with disgusting racist comments.
“Mr. Cat Poop” found the original source of the pic. It’s from a post from 2009 by Jillian Gray, a Christian missionary visiting Swaziland for a year. The picture is of an inspiring woman, Make Peggy. Make translates in Swazi to “Mother.” Here is what Jillian wrote about Make:
“Make is a short, stout, loving, black woman of God who thinks my name is Angeline and won’t call me anything different. She has been given a piece of Gods heart for the mistreated, misused, and malnourished children of Swaziland and has opened up her home in the township to help as many as she can. There are currently ten children she looks after who, as I said, all have backgrounds of rape, abandonment, and mistreatment. For many she had to fight to get permission from the parent(s) to look after their child while others wilfully gave them to her. A few of the kids didn’t have parents at all, were completely alone and had to beg for food. Without the open arms of Make Peggy they would probably be dead. Her home is truly a place where Christ resides and is given the glory.”
The scum who purposely posted this pic in an attempt to stir up racial hatred and resentment should read the Bible verse that Jillian posted on her bio page.
This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no man than this, that a man would lay down his life for his friends. -John 15:12-13.
