In 1984‘s Oceania, there’s a new language called Newspeak. The “Party” has designed language and limited meaning of words to dumb down the populace. It’s intended to eliminate debate, eliminate thinking.
Today’s ruling “party” is fond of language invention. Most bills they’ve proposed have nothing to do with what they seek. Build Back Better… isn’t. Their latest bills, the “Freedom to Vote Act” and the “John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act,” have nothing to do with the freedom to vote or advancing any right to vote.
No one who can vote is prevented from voting. No One. The Party invokes John Lewis to manipulate thought and advance an agenda, not citizens’ rights. Both bills are about one thing — retaining power. The Party is horrified that people aren’t buying into their “doublespeak” and fear that unless they can federalize voting, they will be out of power in January 2023.
The way the Party has chosen to retain power is to manipulate facts and manipulate language. In short — to lie.
Biden is again yelling at critics and taking softball questions from his willing sycophants in the media, and when he’s not doing that, he’s blathering nonsense. Calling everyone who disagrees with The Party “confederates,” racists, and Bull Connor hasn’t worked, so it’s now settled on slandering a thing, rather than people. All voting laws such as requiring an ID to vote are a redo of Jim Crow racism. Biden even called voting laws worse than Jim Crow.
Thus, the Party’s new, adopted slur is “Jim Crow 2.0”. Biden sees it as a winning strategy.
It’s unadulterated nonsense. Biden, Pelosi, and Schumer have moved The Party to use it repeatedly, hoping that voters will fall for that perversion of language. It’s another attempt at Newspeak 2.0.
“Jim Crow 2.0” has no relation to reality. It’s a flock of slander hatched out of the empty head of Joe Biden.
