As George Orwell’s 1984 sells like hotcakes, we ask why. If we take our heads out of the sand, the answer is as plain as the nose on our face. America’s rulers have turned 1984 from fiction into nonfiction.
The founding principle of America is limited government, protected by free speech. The Declaration of Independence warns that America’s rulers will seek a return to unlimited government like that of King George III.
Americans are unwilling or unable to appreciate the warning, the silencing of “nattering nabobs of negativism”, the silencing of Allison Krause and Jeffrey Miller and Sandra Scheuer and William Knox Schroeder at the Kent State University massacre, an incumbent administration silencing peoples’ right to vote by spying on and lying about an opposition Party, and the list of attacks on America’s founding principle goes on.
Americans, however, are living through a period in which it’s becoming ever more difficult to not hear the warning. It’s difficult not to hear the warning, when the rulers proudly preach that America’s founding principle is anathema. When they proudly preach that the Founding Fathers, the Electoral College, the Supreme Court, the First Amendment, the Second Amendment, the Fourth Amendment, the Tenth Amendment, the Fourteenth Amendment, and voter identification laws must be cancelled.
Here’s how President Joe Biden and his supporters treat America’s founding principle.
They declared domestic terrorists to be America’s top national security threat.
They deployed a seven-foot-high razor-wire-topped metal fence and 25,000 armed National Guard troops around the Capitol for months.
They created an FBI task force to investigate parents who criticize school boards.
They declared themselves to be above the law, on all immigration issues.
They enlisted Big Tech to cancel news organizations and people who say things they don’t like.
In 2021, the FBI almost tripled its warrantless searches on Americans from 2020.
And, believe it or not, they actually announced the creation of the Disinformation Governance Board in the Department of Homeland Security, to cancel unapproved ideas and opinions. Do “Homeland” or “Disinformation” remind you of anything? What about “Ministry of Truth”, “Newspeak”, “Thought Police”, or “Big Brother”?
Joe Biden’s bible looks like George Orwell’s 1984. Can you hear the warning now?
