An Orwellian Inversion of Language

An Orwellian Inversion of Language, by Mark Steyn.

I was offended by the media coverage’s Orwellian inversion of language – whereby “#ManchesterStrong” means a limp passivity of flowers and candlelight vigils and teddy bears for a couple of days before we all forget it until the next “strong” “united” community gets blown apart. …

The nincompoop diversicrat who serves as Chief Constable of Greater Manchester sternly [warned] that we must not “tolerate hate” — by which he means not the hate of people who shred little girls’ bodies with nail bombs but the mean-spirited Tweets of people who get angry at the people who shred little girls’ bodies with nail bombs.

The Official Lies are getting more ludicrous, and (with respect to the investigation of Fleet Street columnists for entirely innocuous observations) dangerous and totalitarian.

A society that cannot protect its young girls from rape and death hasn’t got long to live.
