“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.” – from ‘1984’ by George Orwell
Big Tech has been working furiously to obliterate the conversation coming from half the country for the last year or so and after the 2020 election madness. The progressive left did not count on one man igniting so much passion and pushback against the status quo among so many people. Trump is worthy of much criticism, but one thing that can be said about him is that he made a lot of average Americans feel very powerful, and that was a feeling they were not willing to give up even after his loss.
The progressive left does not like that. The only way to make sure another Trump doesn’t come along to remind people of their own power is to eliminate those people altogether. Since genocide is largely frowned upon in this country, the powers that be (for now) have taken the less violent but equally creepy path of silencing any dissenting language. From removing Trump from social media to having their own competition deplatformed to banning the accounts of conservative outlets, Big Tech has been making big moves to end free thought in public altogether.
But wait…there’s more!
Why stop at banning speech when you can just change it? The Merriam-Webster online dictionary has changed the definition of an anti-vaxxer from someone who believes vaccines are harmful to anyone who does not support mandatory vaccinations.
Abolish ‘White Mainstream English,’ English professors argue
A national professional association of writing instructors recently published a list of demands that argued the current emphasis on standard English is rooted in racism and called for a complete overhaul of how language is taught.
It was published by a subcommittee with the Conference on College Composition and Communication, part of the National Council of Teachers of English.
The statement called for an end to “White Mainstream English,” arguing such an action would “decolonize” students’ minds and the English language, as well as help students “unlearn white supremacy.”
The demands were written by five English professors and a writing scholar and the document is titled: “This Ain’t Another Statement! This is a DEMAND for Black Linguistic Justice!”
“The language of Black students has been monitored, dismissed, demonized—and taught from the positioning that using standard English and academic language means success,” the professors argued.
They added such a set-up “creates a climate of racialized inferiority toward Black Language and Black humanity.”
President Biden’s Homeland Security secretary says migrant apprehensions are hitting a 20-year high, and record numbers of unaccompanied minors are already in federal custody — but the Associated Press is ordering its reporters to ignore reality and not call it a “crisis.”
In an internal memo from “the Standards Center,” the AP told staff, “The current event in the news — a sharp increase in the arrival of unaccompanied minors — is a problem for border officials, a political challenge for Biden and a dire situation for many migrants who make the journey, but it does not fit the classic dictionary definition of a crisis.”
A “crisis,” it explained, might be a “decisive or crucial time” or “a time of, or a state of affairs involving, great danger or trouble, often one which threatens to result in unpleasant consequences.”
As part of its ongoing efforts to feature language that is more inclusive and reflective of modern-day society, Dictionary.com will no longer include the word “slave” as a noun identifying a person, instead using the adjective “enslaved” or referencing the institution of slavery. The change is one of 7,600 updates the online resource has announced, which also include the addition of terms relevant to race, social justice and identity, such as “BIPOC” (Black, Indigenous and People of Color) and “Critical Race Theory.”
The latest updates — which also include capitalizing “Indigenous” when referring to people, and adding entries for “racialization,” “disenfranchisement” and “overpolice” — follow those announced last September. That round of revisions saw the capitalization of the word Black in reference to people, and the addition of terms relevant to mental health (specifically, suicide and addiction) and LGBTQ identity. John Kelly, managing editor of Dictionary.com, tells Yahoo Life that the changes are an important part of respecting the power of language and its ability to offer representation and dignity.
George Orwell famously wrote this quote regarding how totalitarian states destroy societies and keep people living under ignorant and fearful tyranny:
“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.”
Now, Orwell’s fiction is becoming America’s truth.
After changing the definition of ‘racism,’ ‘sexual preference,’ ‘assault rifle,’ and other words to suit the globalist agenda recently, Webster has completely silently changed the definition of vaccine entirely to accommodate experimental biological agents that may alter a human’s genetics.
