Those politically incorrect words
By Michael Moriarty
As I try to endure the Democratic strategists or NARAL or Planned Parenthood sales people defend themselves on Fox Network before the formidable likes of Laura Ingraham, I, well, kind of lose it.
By that I mean, these people are either so dumb or so insane they are categorically, undeniably, irrevocably evil.
Yes, there's that word … that awful word.
Evil is a word which has been branded by the Progressive Supremacists as … well … rather like "war on terrorism" or "Islamic Extremists" as either no longer relevant or actually unacceptable.
Word burning, rather like book burning, is a bad sign of totalitarianism, isn't it?
Word burning, unlike book burning, would obviously necessitate an incinerator within one's brain.
Mind control of some sort.
So then, let's start with the control of American education – and that's a Progressive beginning, right? The little addition to the Health Care Bill that college loans will be entirely controlled by the Federal Government.
That sleight-of-Congressional-hand would almost be illegal if the questionably honorable body of men hadn't already twisted language beyond recognition, certainly beyond normal comprehension.
You need a lawyer for everything.
That, for me at any rate, is like needing the devil himself.
When a lie is exposed, as it was the other day when Debby Wasserman Schultz told her constituents that no one will be forced to buy health insurance, which is not true in light of the tax penalties for not having done so … and the Democratic apologist with an infuriatingly ingratiating smile on her face has to dance around the obvious falsehood with evasions like "not entirely true" … this is insanity which can only be dropped into the increasingly large wastebasket where the Progressive Elite have dumped the word "Evil".
Since Progressives have controlled the psychiatric community for so long that this wildly extravagant redefinition of language now goes along with an idea of sanity that is, and will be, if you'll forgive me, eventually labeled as historically proven insanity.
There are so many similarities between the demands of the Obama Nation in its first year and the demands of the German Nazi Movement in the 1930' that … well …
It all begins with language and, of course, will always end there as well.
The Bible says that the Beginning came from "The Word" … and that "The Word is God".
I instantly think of the Battle Hymn of the Republic and God's "grapes of wrath".
No, it isn't John Steinbeck's version of unemployed, migrant workers inciting the wrath of some far left deity … but something a little closer to Steinbeck's own trade … which was words.
"Words, words, words … "
Steinbeck, with his classic short story, Of Mice and Men, made it clear that he knew quite well the migrant worker George, a grassroots George Washington, would eventually have to shoot "Lenny", an unquestionably homicidal animal representing Lenin, and that the American Communists couldn't possibly adopt Leninism. Well, he'd already shown to us that his considerable obsession with the Bible, i. e. his novel East of Eden, had placed him in direct opposition to the most fashionable hero of his day, Karl Marx.
This is an observable drama of personal realization on the part of one of America's most gifted writers.
These days, however, after watching the representatives of what is undeniably America's radical and shamelessly Marxist Presidency, after experiencing the Obama Nation not only burning words, which is the equivalent of burning the Truth … I recall the most prophetic words from Mark Harris' Bang The Drum Slowly.
The Exciting Game Without Any Rules.
I really never thought that existential condition entirely possible until the Obama Nation took control of America.
Yes, America is now drowning in the deepest vats of national insanity that it has ever experienced since its slavery days which led up to The Civil War.
It is entirely America's fault!
When Roe v Wade was passed in 1973, the sacredness of the human being and the words of the Bible, "Thou shalt not kill", were tossed into the wastebasket in the same way Progressive Political Correctness has been dropping a number of words like "Jihad", "War on terrorism" … yes, allowing them to be set aside … insanely.
In actual fact, suicidally!
Insanity is the inability to recognize reality and, indeed, the Obama Nation is training us and our children to accept its insanity as the only, "Politically Correct" normality.
With the astounding organizational skills and success with which the Progressives have achieved their insane ends, one can only call it not insanity … but evil.
We are, indeed, in the Bible now … and the only possible guiding words to prepare us for the inevitable are in the Book of Revelations.
"Word, words, words … "
Honor their true meaning and you are already praying to God.
