The longer one lives, the truer George Orwell gets. In his 1949 classic, 1984, he envisions a powerful government redefining words, forcing people to accept untruth as truth. He calls it “Doublethink,” spoken is “Doublespeak.”
In this way, Big Government controlled people, punishing those refusing to accept untruth was the truth. Well, here we are. Democrats push “election reform” via S. 1, a bill that invites fraud, regularizes electoral manipulation and institutionalizes one-party rule – as viable reform.
Worse, they push the bill with grossly false narratives, saying it will end “vote suppression” and “get big money out of politics.” What is the adage? If you want to fool all, go big? They do.
Unpacking the bill, you can see how Orwell’s dystopian world materializing. People are herded like cattle by increasing central control. People are being cowed, forced to accept government redefinitions, systematic deception, electoral accountability being trivialized.
Biden nixes “illegal alien,” Pelosi rewrites House rules to end genders, blocking the use of “father, mother, son, daughter, brother, sister, etc.” for “gender-neutral” alternatives. We are shamed into forgetting history, biology, morality, individuality, in favor of cancelation, new history, for dozen genders, amorality, immorality, and group identity. We are invited into the Borg.
In Orwell’s world, “war is peace,” “slavery is freedom,” and “ignorance is strength.” Diversity is appearance, education indoctrination, speech free when approved, inequality resolved by mass leveling, surveillance ubiquitous. Modern examples of Doublespeak are comically common.
President Biden describes China’s human genocide – penning people, then terrifying, sterilizing, abusing, reprogramming, and killing the Uighurs – a “cultural norm.” Since when? To be explicit, in 1946, Orwell warned dystopia is a disease – that spreads. “Political language” will become “designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable… to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind.” So … today, killing a live baby at birth is just a “late term abortion,” killing minorities is a “social norm” or “ethnic cleansing,” ripping the Bill of Rights is “progressive,” ripping the State of the Union a point of pride. Really?
Now, we come to H.R. 1 or S.1, the unconstitutional federalization of American elections, locking in “cheats” to solidify one-party control of institutions, Democrat dominance of the FEC, forcing two new Democrat Senators (DC Statehood), facilitating fraud with an automatic illegal immigrant, underage, and felon registration, mandating no identity checks, pushing mail-ins, ballot harvesting, out-of-precinct, online, and same-day voting, federal control of state redistricting.
This bold electoral abomination is being pushed to end “vote suppression.” If you oppose, you are a racist. The problem is the Act does not ensure voter integrity it undermines it. It suppresses legal votes in favor of illegal votes. Is that credible reform? Of course not.
The bill goes long, suppressing political speech, laying a foundation for mass intimidation, personal doxing, harassment, job loss, cancellation. How? Requiring your name and address if you support a conservative political group. In an age of violent activism, think that chills?
Then political campaigns are funded with your tax dollars – a six-to-one match. You will watch campaign commercials by leftist candidates paid for by you. Sound fun? Sound like America?
The “S.1 fixes vote suppression” baloney is stumbling, so Democrats just shifted. Now, S.1 will get “big money” out of politics. Funny idea, since most “dark money” flowed – during the last cycle – into Democrat groups. This is not conjecture. But like confiscating guns from law-abiding citizens, the result will be criminals keep doing what they do. So will Democrats.
The latest irony is rich. CNN admits: “More than $320 million of so-called “dark money” helped boost Democrats, more than double anonymous dollars to Republicans…” Top beneficiary? Hapless Joe, with $132 million anonymous. See, www.cnn.com/2020/11/27/politics/dark-money-democrats-joe-biden/index.html; www.huffpost.com/entry/dark-money-for-the-people-act_n_6054ea75c5b66a80f4e77179; https://www.opensecrets.org/news/2021/03/one-billion-dark-money-2020-electioncycle/.
Bottom line: Latest narrative – end big money – is bunk. Cheaters will cheat, anonymous money finds the sea, and Democrats are masters in that world. So, the end-vote suppression and big money? No, that is fake. What is left?
A bigger push to sell the S.1 lie – on any ground – through powerful media. To that end, social media platforms ban election talk. Big media – like The New Yorker –push “gotta do it” stories.
The latest popping in The New Yorker is laughable, except that some take it seriously. They parrot Democrat talkers, saying S.1 “aims to expand voting rights and curb the influence of money,” which is like saying pray for a flood to water your crops. Good luck.
They dismiss Republican claims that S.1 is a “brazen and shameless power grab,” although smart analysts at the ACLU and Wall Street Journal agree with Republicans. Media claim some Republicans like the bill. What Senators? None. This gilding the lily: “Jump first because others will.” Only there are no others.
They say the “public” wants “big money out of politics,” which means S. 1. That is like saying the public wants the local bridge fixed, so they support massive taxes and spending on a $2.3 trillion on an infrastructure bill that is on-fifth bridges, four-fifths bloat. No, they do not.
They imply Republican use of the filibuster to stop S.1 bill – requiring 60 votes – is irregular, and S.1 should get pushed through, that dusty, century-old filibuster be damned! That is like saying the eye-popping “infrastructure bill” should be jammed using “reconciliation” – slapping big tax hikes into it, to a Senate parliamentarian is pressured to rule 51 votes does it. Crazy, only they are also trying that!
What else? Media outlets hide behind each other, The New Yorker claiming The New York Times, unapologetic activists, favor S.1. From where most sit, that would be a strike, not hit.
For a cherry on top, left-leaning media note Biden supports S.1, as he does killing the filibuster – which he supported his entire Senate career, helping Democrats staunch 51-vote victories by Republicans. Suddenly, ends justify means? Find that guy a chair.
The barbershop mirror of endless, empty arguments for S. 1 by Democrats and media – all eager for one-party rule – should leave Americans in shock. When desperate, go long. Well, they are – and let us hope the pass is dropped. S. 1 must be stopped. Democrat narratives are “Doublespeak.”
