'The Guardian Goes Full Orwell'
The Public Secrets blog notes:
I realize the UK’s Guardian is pretty far down toward the Left end of the scale, but does
CommissarSimon Jenkins realize just how… dumb this headline and summary sounds?
Free speech can’t exist unchained. US politics needs the tonic of order
If America is to speak in a way that heals, as Obama wishes, it needs the curbs and regulations that make freedom of expression real
Didn’t guys named “Benito” and “Adolph” say much the same thing in the last century?
Well, think of it as the liberal fascisti, or enlightened Nazism, as another Guardian-approved writer said 80 years ago.
But then, as I wrote earlier today at the Tatler, it's Orwell's world, we're just living in it:
- "NYC Schools Chancellor Cathie Black jokes solution for overcrowded classrooms is ‘birth control’"
- Seattle Family “charged ‘death tax’ for baby who lived one hour.”
And of course in retrospect, the Guardian went full Orwell long ago.
