Today an interesting thing happened.
It’s just another typical Sunday. I’m drinking my coffee. It’s rainy and I’m playing an amazing coffee-house jazz mix I’ve discovered on Youtube…while cruising Facebook when it happened…
A real life adaptation of George Orwell’s 1984 flashes right before my eyes. If you haven’t read 1984 then …here’s the gist : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nineteen_Eighty-Four … it’s a dystopian world..no free thinking,history has been written…scary stuff.
Today we got hit with Alternative Facts. And this is where the real danger begins.
On Meet the Press, Trump advisor KellyAnne Conway defended press secretary Sean Spicer’s news conference about the inauguration’s crowd size. Despite Spicer having made numerous points that could easily be disproven by photos and video of the event, Conway said Spicer had it right. She said he presented “alternative facts.” Chuck Todd rightfully challenged her and pointed out that alternative facts are not facts, they’re falsehoods.
In this same interview, Conway said, if this type of coverage of the Trump White House continues, they are going “to have to rethink our relationship with the press.”
“The Party told you to reject all evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command.” ~ 1984
Hmm…sounds a little like…
It’s been headed that way for a few days,it seems, since Trump took office. Lord it already feels like a month has passed. Almost in the instant that he took his place … frightening information started to spread. I always like to fact check because sources on Facebook can be so bogus it’s ridiculous. Unfortunately though everything was correct.
I sat reading over the new white house “Issues” page. I actually caught myself laughing sort of hysterically. WE need more big boats and planes. WE need more coal mining. WE think climate issues are unnecessary and dangerous to think about. Melania Trump was a model and sold jewelry. WE will be taking your land if there is oil on it. Oh and we’re probably leaving the UN.
As a rational person you would think anyone would see something as crazy as “Alternative Facts” and immediately know it’s bullshit. I mean everyone freaked out over e-mails and had NO CLUE what the e-mails were even about. Ask them now and they still couldn’t tell you. They just hated “Crooked Hilary.” Ever since Trump has been elected he’s been more crooked ON FULL DISPLAY than I have ever seen in my life. But they still cheer on. God appointed him…he’s their salvation..he’s going to bring them $15 an hour on their jobs. Oh how I wish.
“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped.” ~1984
Monday,tomorrow, is his first day in actual office. Guess we’ll face that dumpster fire once we get there.
Everyone be kind to one another out there…we really need it right now. This world has gone Twilight Zone. I’m over here half expecting one of Mr.Creedy’s black bags from V For Vedetta to close around my head anytime now.
Fighting the good fight…
