The Democrats are using Orwell’s 1984 as a blueprint instead of a satire. Now they have instituted a Ministry of Truth. Of course they wouldn’t call it that, they would rather endow it with the name Misinformation Disinformation Governance Board.
Governing free speech is apparently so popular.
So they are rolling out their ministry of truth to combat, supposedly, all kinds of misinformation — or what they deem as misinformation. (anything they don’t like or agree with.) Ah, what an incestuous web they weave. What sparked this ? You might say it has been in the works a while.
Obama had truth squads and his brownshirt army who were out to keep the record straight. You had 911 Truthers to begin with, who were also part of the left.
But they now incorporated it formally into the administration. What more prominent place to put it than within Homeland Security? Since they keep repeating our greatest threat to the homeland is right-wing extremists, it gives away how they plan to use it.
You might expect such a bureau in some authoritarian regime but here it is in the US. “They’ll never get away with it” becomes another empty mantra along with all their other revisions to our government. They do it and therefore it is. Could there be a Constitutional challenge that tells them “no?” But what are the odds it will be knocked down?
Remember all the czars Obama appointed? Who would stop him? We now will have a department that codifies the network the Left has built among the Silicon Valley social media, to silence any political opposition.
And speaking of social media, what better timing for it than as Truth Social opened to the public? Could they have had that platform in mind? Then Elon Musk buys Twitter threatening their monopoly on censoring information. The Left is screaming over that like when Hillary lost the election.
Adding more insult to the left — as every Tweet from Elon now does — Musk tweeted about the political paradigm alignment. Well, the left jumped to interpret that as a defining of the country, which the Left jealously guards as their inherent right to do. Only they can define the country. So that offended them both ways.
But the image he used was simple and made a point. Here it is.
And that is all it took…. off to the races.
You might say Elon Musk also has some unorthodox ideas for Twitter, sure to set off fireworks — both literally and figuratively. But that’s a subject for another time. This is purely about the political paradigm Musk referenced.
For now, Elon swung at the fences with this image the Left was quick to try to pigeonhole. Many people agreed with his description of where he was on the spectrum of politics. (that was the purpose) The Left hyperventilated about that along with his description in the image that painted the Left as running further and further off the far left scale.
So that prompted someone like Matthew Dowd to respond with a description of where the country is. Here is that assault on reality.
“The truth is, yes the Dems have become more progressive as the country has, but the GOP has moved towards autocracy and further away from “equality and justice for all”. I would ask everyone to acknowledge this factual reality as they discuss the political landscape.”

Get that, blame the country that it is going with progressives.
But we know the country got behind Trump and has trended to the conservative side of the spectrum. The country certainly is not behind the issues or ideas they have.
He wishes everyone would acknowledge that fact … er big lie? Autocracy right?
Only so much time, how sinister they really are. The pendulum has actually swung against the left. Under any poll they seem to be loosing support. But they skip down the yellow brick road acting like everyone is with them. People are running the other way.
Schools, the economy, inflation, socialism, green new deal, open borders, crime, anti-police. The people are not supporting their positions. They are running from them.
What started this defining the politics of the country syndrome? A simple Tweet from Elon Musk on his personal place on the spectrum. Though he seems to have a pretty good grip on what has happened in the country. How long till the Ministry of Truth takes on the subject to have the final “progressive” word?
