Animal Farm Oppression Quotes Pinterest

It had come to his knowledge, he said, that a foolish and wicked rumour had been circulated at the time of Boxer s removal. Some of the animals had noticed that the van which took Boxer away was marked Horse Slaughterer, and had actually jumped to the conclusion that Boxer was being sent to the knacker s. It was almost unbelievable, said Squealer, that any animal could be so stupid. Surely, he cried indignantly, whisking his tail and skipping from side to side, surely they knew their beloved Leader, Comrade Napoleon, better than that? But the explanation was really very simple. The van had previously been the property of the knacker, and had been bought by the veterinary surgeon, who had not yet painted the old name out. That was how the mistake had arisen. How ironic: the one time the animals are actually being smart—by noticing that the van is painted with Horse Slaughterer —Squealer actually tries to convince them that they re being stupid. Apparently, he succeeds.
