The Sequel to George Orwell’s 1984
Listen to the June 22, 2018, episode of the Trumpet Daily Radio Show.
“Grossly negligent” has become “extremely careless.” “Reasonably likely” has become “possible.” “Investigation” has become “matter.” These are a few of the deceitful word changes that historian and columnist Victor Davis Hanson noted in the Clinton e-mail investigation. One of the worst things about the recent Inspector General’s report, Hanson wrote, “is the extent to which the FBI went to make up words and phrases to disguise reality.” A tactic, he noted, that’s right out of Orwell’s famous book 1984. On today’s radio show, I talk about how society’s contempt for the truth is evident in the use of dishonest language. This is in stark contrast to towering figures of history such as Winston Churchill, who used English language to illuminate and amplify the truth. All this and more on today’s Trumpet Daily Radio Show.
