A book review and commentary on George Orwell's 1984, and how it predicted much of what is happening today.
Some mainstream media outlets have likened the Trump administration to George Orwell’s 1984. Here’s what I have to say: You cannot compare President Donald J. Trump to George Orwell’s 1984. But! You can, however, liken social justice warriors, liberal hijacked university administrators, globalists and political correctness to 1984.
Think about this. All throughout Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, he spoke about how we need to stop being so politically correct. And thank God Donald J. Trump was elected.
Shortly after President Trump’s inauguration, I noticed that the mainstream media, CNN in particular, ran headlines that George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four had become a bestselling book on Amazon. Well, this makes sense, I thought, given how strong and destructive political correctness has become. I thought, hey, perhaps Trump’s campaign brought more awareness to the politically correct newspeak of today, and people are now curious to read about its prediction in 1984.
It’s important to keep in mind that the term politically correct was coined by communist Mao, and it is the newspeak of today.
In 1984, there are thought police who enforce the rules that govern speech. This prediction came true, and thought police are embodied by today’s social justice warriors and other whiny brats who take offence to any speech they disagree with.
So I thought, good stuff, maybe CNN has written an article about Trump’s presidency drawing more attention to conservative voices. Conservative voices have been comparing political correctness and perpetually offended liberals to Nineteen Eighty-Four for years.
Also, it’s important to keep in mind that 1984’s author, George Orwell, wrote another novel called Animal Farm, which is a commentary on the horrors of the destructive ideology known as communism. Look it up. George Orwell was very anti-Communist throughout his professional life. Orwell was pro freedom.
So, I read CNN’s headline about 1984 being a bestseller. This is great, I thought. CNN is doing some good and bringing attention to Orwell’s works, like 1984 and Animal Farm, which serve as cautionary tales about the horrors of communism.
Recently, Wikileaks released Vault 7. 9,000 documents demonstrated we are essentially carrying around listening devices, and that certain television sets can be tapped into so governments can listen to us, even when we think our devices are turned off. We have foreign governments reaching into our living rooms. This is like the telescreen in 1984 that can hear you and see you. Another prediction from 1984.
Kellyanne Conway said “alternative facts” to an idiot who focused on trivial matters like crowd sizes. And this Russian hacking silliness is just a pathetic attempt to delegitimize Trump's presidency. The Russian allegations are just allegations, but it is demonstrable that governments are spying on people through their televisions, thanks to the Wikileaks.
Liberals will keep defending Obama, saying he knew nothing about this. Imagine if this spying was done under Trump’s administration? We wouldn’t hear the end of it. The mainstream media has been reaching for straws, so they would love if something like this happened under Trump.
