Ignorance is Strength: Left to Screen 1984 in Protest of Trump

" The latest big bold anti-Trump move from the resistance is going to be a worldwide screening of the 1984 film “1984” based on the George Orwell novel of the same name.

.....  we are already living in that world thanks in large part to the left. Orwell’s “Newspeak” is alive and well in the form of preferred pronouns and countless other language inventions of the left. Orwell’s “Two Minutes Hate” is played out regularly on college campuses as student protesters angrily shout down speakers with whom they disagree. The liberal media attacks people for “Thoughtcrime” on a regular basis.
That the left fails to see themselves as responsible for our presently Orwellian world betrays their ignorance and “Groupthink.”

If the left is truly concerned, they might want to re-examine concepts like safe spaces, trigger warnings, and microaggressions. Or made-up pronouns like “Xe” “Xir” and “Zey.”

If Orwell was alive today, he would surely wish he had thought of them first."
