If Winston and Julia had kept Mossberg 500s in their love jest, they could have scattered the Thought Police’s ****.
Great post, Thanks!
When are we going to ask the Franklin Deleanor Roosevelt memorial in Washington DC be demolished because FDR put Japanese in prison camps and deported Joe DiMaggio’s mother back to Italy?
Right-O! We need to quote this Orwell piece until it becomes a cliché.
The MOAR the BettOR!
The DNC and the Left, especially since 2008.
I also liken it to nazi bookburning. In spite of what the media thinks, todays liberals have a great deal in common with the nazis.

Jerry Seinfeld would have made a good Nazi. No wonder he loves Obama.
A very small Seinfeld ping.
The DC Jefferson memorial will have to go, all things, places, etc named ‘Washington’ will have to be renamed. Just for starters.
Good post! The PC/Cultural Marxist activists are acting just like the Taliban in Afghanistan destroying monuments and shrines!
YES! I just read for the second time Orwell’s “1984,” a prophetic piece of work. Just posted the following in response to another article...
“What we are seeing right before our very eyes is a push toward an Orwellian nation, fed by drug abuse, the depths of which we do not know, sponsored by wealthy usurpers whose lust for pleasure does not satisfy, so they lust to enslave the nation through anarchy and they hate the values of Christianity or any religion which teaches man how to live with his fellow man in peace and harmony. It is disturbing to watch the ongoing, insane, coup attempts against this President who is doing so many things to help people survive their lives in the US. Simply reading the headlines in the Drudgereport this a.m. is enough for any thinking person to see what is going on here. One headline stood out to me and that was the poll which showed that 25% of us will stand with President Trump to the end. That is HUGE because, when 25% admit it in this vicious environment, you know when push comes to shove many more will stand up and be counted, perhaps even the military. Bad people populate the mighty towers of the American news media, fed by ads from people who want to sell stuff and who will be as politically correct as they need to be to continue their profit taking so they can buy cheap and sell high to folks who do not have jobs because of government policies President Trump is trying to fix. He is for the poor, the homeless, the sick veteran, those who suffer from healthcare costs of treatment and drugs that take all of their income every month and his enemies are those who want to shut him up and remove him from the office we elected him to fill to clean up a very rich, corrupt Swamp which is existing to promote itself. I do not know how wise people deal with their emotions during all of this. I only know that it is only through my faith in God that I can deal with it without being very depressed. I begin my day by praying for Donald J. Trump and his family. I see that his enemies are not unlike the enemies that King David faced eons ago. King David was a man who committed sin but was also a man after Gods own heart and God protected him. I believe that President Trump also has Gods protection and I long to see Gods hand move to stifle the plans of those who hate him. This a.m., I prayed Psalm 109:1-3 for our President: Do not keep silent, O God of my praise, for the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of the deceitful have opened against me; They have spoken against me with a lying tongue; They have surrounded me with words of hatred; and fought against me without a cause. Psalm 108:12-13 Give us help from trouble, for the help of man is useless. Through God we will do valiantly. FOR IT IS HE WHO WILL TREAD DOWN OUR ENEMIES. I hope all of you who believe in our Creator will pray diligently for our President to be covered with wisdom, strength and endurance and will be surrounded by people endowed with the same kind of mercy. I believe with all my heart that our internal enemies are the true ones and much worse than what we face from without.”
We’’re going to see the play next month. The left has stolen the entent of the book-Stalin and communism. He named the main character after Churchill.
Where can I get a poster-size copy of that? I’m a high school English teacher and I’d like to hang that in my classroom.
In summary of your observations: The barbarians destroying our society are not invaders from without but from within. They are the homegrown product of revolutionary humanism (hatred of God), subjectivism (relativism), idolatry (genetic supremacy/egotism/will to power). All of this evil is the “death of the Holy Triune God” gone viral.
