Jim Treacher on “Greg Sargent, Thought Cop:”
Thank goodness we have Greg Sargent of the Washington Post to remind us what’s permissible to think. Not what’s permissible to act on, or even to say aloud, but to think. How can we all be free if people are allowed to think in unapproved ways?
“Thoughtcrime does not entail death. Thoughtcrime is death.”
P.S. FrankJ: The Orwellian NPR. Great minds crimethink alike! Frank also had a great PJM column the other day: Republicans Kind of Suck … Which Is Why They Will Win Huge in November. Oh, and he and his lovely wife just made a brand-new small person (who will undoubtedly grow up to have incorrect thoughts unless people like Greg Sargent can put a stop to it).
P.P.S. Rachel Maddow makes another “editing error.”
As Steven Den Beste wrote a few years ago, Orwell’s 1984: a warning for the rest of us, a user manual for the left.
