In an age of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act. — George Orwell
The Party told you to reject all evidence with your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command. — George Orwell, Nineteen Eighty-Four
The point is that the attacks and the attempts to delegitimize this president in one day — and we’re not going to sit around and take it. – Reince Priebus, White House Chief of Staff
The method for taking over the state and for it becoming a totalitarian police state, is always the same, and it’s always the identification of ‘the other’ as the enemy. In Trump’s case, it’s the Chinese, the Mexicans, and Islam – it doesn’t matter who it is. With Hitler, it was the Jews, the Communists, the Gypsies, anybody who had a physical deformity, or whatever it might be, the homosexuals – they were all lumped together. — Roger Waters
The resistance begins today. — Roger Waters
In Nineteen Eighty-Four, war is peace.
On Inauguration Day, the crowds in Washington were far fewer than for the Inauguration of Barack Obama. The anti-Trump protest, Women’s March, the next day, dwarfed that for the Trump Inauguration.
Estimates of the Women’s March put it at three times for the Trump Inauguration. The Metro reported it carried three times as many passengers on Saturday as on Friday.
In cities across America, massive anti-Trump demonstrations. No only in USA, across the world. There was a massive demonstration in Sydney.
But no, according to Trump the media was lying.
If Trump lies on the size of a crowd, can we believe him on anything he says?
His White House press mouthpiece repeated the lie. Repeated the lie and launched an unprecedented attack on the media.
When White House chief of staff threatens the media, says will not tolerate media questioning legitimacy of the Trump presidency, this has shades of Nazi Germany.
What is he going to do, lockup up journalists as they do in Turkey, kill journalists as in Russia?
In Mexico they have a phrase for Trump, Trump Eres Un Pendejo, Trump, you’re an arsehole.
