Please help me with "we do:" in the quote:
"We may not brand the unemployed with a red-hot iron today, but sear their minds with criticism we do: the 'deserving' and 'not deserving' poor still exist."
Somebody says it is ...but we do sear ... But I don't think so,bedause: 1.I haven't come across such construction; 2. There is no need to use such a construction, for there is "we may not...,but..."which has the emphatic function.
I am all ears for yours!
thanks!
