I never saw it, but I believe Ricky Gervais made a (bad) movie a couple of years ago about living in a world in which no one understood the concept of lying. He could tell a woman: "You must sleep with me now, or the world will end" and she would do it. He said it -- so it must be true, right?

I think the Left believes they live in that world. They can say anything:
We have a grainy video and it proves Zimmerman was not injured
We have a Youtube video, and that's why the Libyans attacked our embassy in Benghazi
We have a doctored birth certificate, so Obama is eligible to be president.

They can say anything, and they are sure that the public will buy it. This game cannot go on forever.

“This game cannot go on forever. “

To quote Eric Blair, who seems more prophetic every year:

Do you begin to see, then, what kind of world we are
creating? It is the exact opposite of the stupid hedonistic Utopias that
the old reformers imagined. A world of fear and treachery is torment, a
world of trampling and being trampled upon, a world which will grow not
less but MORE merciless as it refines itself. Progress in our world will
be progress towards more pain. The old civilizations claimed that they
were founded on love or justice. Ours is founded upon hatred. In our world
there will be no emotions except fear, rage, triumph, and self-abasement.
Everything else we shall destroy—everything. Already we are breaking down
the habits of thought which have survived from before the Revolution. We
have cut the links between child and parent, and between man and man, and
between man and woman. No one dares trust a wife or a child or a friend
any longer. But in the future there will be no wives and no friends.
Children will be taken from their mothers at birth, as one takes eggs from
a hen. The sex instinct will be eradicated. Procreation will be an annual
formality like the renewal of a ration card. We shall abolish the orgasm.
Our neurologists are at work upon it now. There will be no loyalty, except
loyalty towards the Party. There will be no love, except the love of
Big Brother. There will be no laughter, except the laugh of triumph over a
defeated enemy. There will be no art, no literature, no science. When we
are omnipotent we shall have no more need of science. There will be no
distinction between beauty and ugliness. There will be no curiosity, no
enjoyment of the process of life. All competing pleasures will be
destroyed. But always—do not forget this, Winston—always there will be
the intoxication of power, constantly increasing and constantly growing
subtler. Always, at every moment, there will be the thrill of victory,
the sensation of trampling on an enemy who is helpless. If you want a
picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face—for ever.

Unless we stop the progressives before they reach critical mass, I fear that this game can indeed go on forever. The quote from O’Brien covers so much of what is actually going on, from the destruction of our cultural heroes like Jefferson and Lincoln to the displays of raw power we have recently seen, and the suggestions that some of our leader are motivated by hate. Consider Benghazi and the way the story is going down the memory hole, and the way the first World Trade Center attack apparently never happened since 9-11 was the “first attack by terrorists on our soil”. The trivialization of sex.
