George Orwell once wrote how people can easily look past their own intolerance in order to only view everyone else as intolerant. This ability is what he dubbed “doublethink.”
“Doublethink means the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one’s mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them.” – 1984
One of the perfect examples of this behavior more recently has been the rise of what Conservative media refers to as the “cancel culture.” The Progressives long ago abandoned the notion that speech should be free for all, but they would never admit to that long-held belief. In their eyes, free speech is only delegated for the very wealthy who also happen to be the academically advantaged. This is not to say that those who attend Yale or Harvard are any smarter than the general public. It’s only that they deem themselves to be more intellectual based on groupthink among scholars and dignitaries of the wealthy class. When is the last time that anyone called Al Gore (a Yale graduate) the smartest man in the room?
This is the equivalent of the Left throwing someone into a cage and then shouting at the imprisoned from every side of the jail cell how wrong it is to put someone in a cage.
This “cancel culture” has been an insipid poison that has infiltrated the mainstream Progressive. Its purpose is to accept only those views that they find inclusive or non-hateful. Any ideology falling outside of these self-imposed parameters will be summarily silenced. Orwell’s doublethink exposes this split personality illness of the mind by demonstrating how the Progressive Left is completely blind to its own forms of suppression while casting imposition upon others who don’t agree. This is the equivalent of the Left throwing someone into a cage and then shouting at the imprisoned from every side of the jail cell how wrong it is to put someone in a cage.
College campuses are the active laboratories of these social experiments. Every day in this New World Order of existence, the Progressives place anyone who disagrees with their flailing policies and ideology under duress and threats of violence. When the students are assaulted or begin missing classes due to these verbal assaults on their character, Conservative media questions the free speech shutdown and suddenly the mainstream media goes into overdrive attempting to justify the violation of their basic rights. The professors and administrators at these learning facilities then throw many different rationalizations against the wall to see which ones have a viable lasting effect against the calls for fairness and open forums of ideas. Whichever reasoning appears to be the best argument against granting free speech to everyone across the board is the newly adopted talking point that serves as a Leftist shield for as long as it is effective.
Another glaring example of this methodology is apparent nearly every single day that goes by in our nation’s capital. There is no better lesson learned by new legislators elected to the DC Swamp than that of conformity. You may indeed have grandiose ideas of how you’re going to travel to Washington and change the world. The Swamp dwellers, believe you me, have a much different idea.
Adam Schiff has been conducting what he and Speaker Nancy Pelosi have called an “impeachment inquiry” for the past month or so, having been mortally offended and embarrassed by a man of no political background who dared to win an election for which he was not permitted victory by the powers that be inside the Beltway. It’s not only that he won the election, but that he continues to rub their noses in it that is so reprehensible. They are so incensed as to embrace methodology that will ultimately and literally destroy one man’s reputation and ability to do business in the future when he is no longer president, all for the sake of their damaged and tender feelings.
In this doublethink, Schiff finds it necessary to frame a man for a quid pro quo scandal that clearly never took place according to officially produced written records (the transcript of the Ukraine call) while at the very same time, he had been using underhanded and deceptive means of beginning such an investigation through a spy (who may have worked for the president’s political rival, Joe Biden) that coordinated his/her “whistleblower” account through Schiff’s own office. Instead of following normal and legal protocol, the spy was first brought into the Intelligence Committee chairperson’s office and secretly informed to write a report in a particular way in order to give Schiff the best opportunity of opening a phony impeachment investigation. “I’m going to say this, and I’m only going to say it seven times…you write the whistleblower’s report this way and I’ll ensure that you not only keep your job, but that I can also stain the reputation of the president and possibly affect the outcome of the 2020 election.” Quid pro quo, plain and simple.
On what planet does a woman who has virtually lost every major political test of her entire career become elevated to the status of mentor?
Perhaps we can chalk this up to the zodiacal chart and make a presumption that all Leftists are Geminis. In looking at the particular behaviors of the Twins, it’s easy to see many of the qualities associated with both Gemini and the Democrats.
The Gemini is said to think and talk fast. Well, that’s certainly true. The Democrats at times appear to think and talk so fast, in fact, that they seem to merely trip over their tongues in panic or confusion. Just listen to some of Biden’s answers at events or debates. Or how about Beto’s all-out assault on law-abiding gun owners? Thinking and talking fast are clearly not the strong suit of the Leftist persuasion.
The Gemini is also said to possess a versatility and adaptability that makes them at once intellectual and scatterbrained. If anyone epitomizes this doublethink quality to a fault, it’s Hillary Clinton. Nowhere can you find a woman with more political experience and with more pull in her career than Clinton. That same experience and influence, however, have not made her any smarter or better off than her contemporaries. Hillary Clinton simply suffers from a self-induced trance that has her believing...really believing…that she is the smartest woman in the country. Heck, she’s even giving political advice to Elizabeth Warren at closed door tea and sconce parties at her home in upstate New York. On what planet does a woman who has virtually lost every major political test of her entire career become elevated to the status of mentor?
The opponents of Trump believed that secretly and illegally undermining and altering the results of a Constitutionally held election was somehow going to save us from a man they said was undermining our democracy.
Some may argue that she was the Secretary of State, but let’s get one fact straight: the only reason she was chosen as Obama’s Secretary of State is because his handlers made him promise to give her that gig based on their enormous baggage of guilt for choosing to endorse Barack Hussein Obama over Hillary Clinton for the presidency. She was “owed” that highest seat of authority and they knew that this consolation prize was never going to be enough. Hence, the payback nearly a decade later when she was the anointed one over Bernie Sanders, a contest so completely one-sided to begin with that had the Democratic Socialist old white guy miraculously won every state in the primary contest, the corrupt Debbie Wasserman-Schultz DNC would have been forced to concoct a new Super-Duper Delegate system in order to make up for Hillary’s underperformance. In other words, the fix was in and Hillary would be the next president of the United States.
The Gemini is also said to be like a sponge, soaking up information so voraciously that the thirst for knowledge is almost a compulsion. Once again, the comparisons are eerily reminiscent of the way that the Deep State, working in conjunction and perfect harmony with the DNC, the Fake News Media, and the Globalist Cabal, were able to gather information from every foreign and domestic source available to them and compile the most sick and twisted piece of opposition research to date. This Trump-Russian Dossier, or the Steele Dossier as it was soon to be known, was the very definition of the Left’s obsession with information. Whether or not that information was compatible with either truth or fact was irrelevant.
The point of the Dossier was not to get it right; the point of this piece of foreign spy, double agent espionage was to get Trump. Many of these same people who were on-board this train of railroading the president were the same individuals quoted on multiple occasions stating that Donald Trump represented an existential threat to our democracy. Imagine that. Doublethink at its finest. The opponents of Trump believed that secretly and illegally undermining and altering the results of a Constitutionally held election was somehow going to save us from a man they said was undermining our democracy.
The doublethink that infects the Left is coupled with the double talk that Washington has sought to perfect throughout its existence.
The Gemini is also apparently not a good listener. In fact, they are so insistent on getting their point across that they rapidly jump from one subject to another, easily distracted from their main point of contention and segueing into a completely new and disconnected subject matter. They are notorious for not finishing what they start. If there was an award being given out for this quality, the Fake News Media appears to be a perfect candidate. How many times in a single hour of any given day are we subjected to yet another iteration of the Russia Collusion hoax from the mainstream press, the anchors apparently practicing a sort of disjointed doublethink where they appear to forget on a day-to-day basis that the Mueller Report has already been completed and stamped “No Collusion.” They continue to double dip into this Leftist treat of intrigue, all the while seeming to be the recipients of a very severe case of Trump dementia.
Remember that even Robert Mueller himself, who had a huge army of Trump-haters working 24-7 on this gotcha scheme for nearly three years didn’t recognize the name “Fusion GPS” during his hearing testimony before Congress. One of the main players in the Russia Collusion hoax, Fusion GPS was the primary hub of the entire fictional wheel that was constructed, the spokes from which all other players were linked in questionable and illegal behaviors. Yet after a stunning three-year investigation, the man who signed his very own name to the validity and all-encompassing nature of this report had absolutely no idea who one of the main phantom catalysts in this grand piece of fiction actually was. The Fake News Media of course had no problem transitioning from “no collusion” to “obstruction of justice.” The fact that they are not good listeners is always apparent. Just look at how the “obstruction of justice” subway car has left the station, only to be replaced by “quid pro quo.”
The doublethink that infects the Left is coupled with the double talk that Washington has sought to perfect throughout its existence. They have double-downed on their ability to ignore the will of the people and have instead chosen to do the bidding of the Military Industrial Complex, the Globalist Cabal and the Invisible Masters of the Universe in their quest for autocratic power. The double standard of the Left, where individuals of privilege and means, like Hillary Clinton, Sidney Blumenthal, Lois Lerner, Eric Holder, Samantha Power, James Clapper, John Brennan, James Comey, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Joseph Mifsud, Glenn Simpson, and hundreds of others, can get away with criminal or near-criminal behavior while the little people suffer is painfully obvious to the American public. The double cross on the people of the United States has reached fanatical status, where even the US House of Representatives and the Senate appear to be on par to an impeachment proceeding that will not only prove the pettiness and overt hatred and distrust of the American electorate, it will also teach the upcoming generations that it’s more than okay to sacrifice the baby with the bathwater in order to finish the job of draining the tub quickly and cleanly.
If only the draining of the Swamp was as simple.
