In discussing the book 1984, a website called bookanalysis.com posts the following definition of Newspeak:
The purpose of the language is to reduce “unnecessary” words and those that might lead the citizens of Oceania into thought patterns the Party wants to avoid. They believe if they can rid the English language of troubling words, then there will be no way that anyone can conceive of the concepts without them.
It is a language that is still under construction as the novel’s plot is playing out. There are various iterations of the Newspeak dictionary, and one of Winston Smith’s associates, Syme, is working on the text. The language reduces words to syllables and combines them together to create new, unusual words.
On Tuesday, Just the News posted an article titled, “6 terms Biden has redefined to further agenda, stigmatize opponents.”
Here is the list of the six terms:
3. Domestic terrorist
5. Voter suppression
6. Illegal alien
The redefining of all these terms has to do with keeping the Democrats in power. The chances of a Democrat victory in the mid-terms will be negatively impacted if America is declared in a recession so the administration will simply change the definition of recession. Disinformation has come to mean anything the Biden administration does not like or anything that paints the administration in a bad light. The Facebook fact-checkers have this concept down pat. A domestic terrorists is anyone who questions the far left agenda the Biden administration is attempting to impose on Americans–anything from school curriculum to men in women’s sports. An insurrectionist is anyone who questions the legitimacy of the 2020 election. Voter suppression is anything that will insure a more secure and honest election. Illegal aliens are now called undocumented citizens or simply non-citizens.
The Biden administration’s ‘Newspeak’ has been somewhat successful in limiting some of the complaints about election fraud in 2020. Many politicians are afraid to bring up the subject out of fear of being labeled insurrectionists. It has also become obvious that the Biden administration is not above sending the law after any citizen that consistently opposes their agenda. The FBI has used excessive force on Americans accused of minor crimes on numerous occasions. In some states the banning of drop boxes is being called voter suppression even as it becomes evident that drop boxes are easily used by those who want to engage in ballot harvesting, an illegal activity in many states. And finally, as we watch our totally open southern border, the term illegal alien has somehow disappeared from any document or speech connected to the Biden administration.
If the trend of redefining words for political purposes continues in the Biden administration, we will one day in the very near future wake up and wonder what has happened to our country.
