Welcome to 1984

I truly never intended start a political blog, but just when I thought I could get back to discussing thoughts on writing and becoming an author, the current fascist regime comes up with yet another absurdity which must be addressed. As George Orwell said, “In our age there is no such thing as ‘keeping out of politics.’ All issues are political issues, and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred and schizophrenia.”
Yesterday, January, 22nd White House press secretary Sean Spicer’s false claims about the size of the crowd at President Donald Trump’s inauguration were “alternative facts,” a top Trump aide said Sunday.
In an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” host Chuck Todd pressed Trump senior adviser Kellyanne Conway about why the White House on Saturday had sent Spicer to the briefing podium for the first time to claim that “this was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, period.”
“You’re saying it’s a falsehood. And they’re giving — Sean Spicer, our press secretary — gave alternative facts,” she said.They want us to believe in the words of George Orwell, “War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength.”
The “Alternate Facts” disseminated by White House are blatant lies, period. We writers, more than any other group, should rebel against such outrages. If we do not, our right to express ourselves freely and without fear will soon be a thing of the past. Resistance is not futile.Point out their lies each time they utter them. When they use the term “alt-right”. We need to use the correct term “Nazi” or if you prefer, “white supremacist”
I’ll leave you with more words from Orwell’s 1984 “The Party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command.”
