Orwell Revisited: Are the Socialist-Democrats Illiterate or What?

Here is the true rundown of how the lefties screwed this up, like everything else they touch! m/r

Sorry, libs, Orwell was talking about you

Exclusive: Jack Cashill looks at best-sellers 'progressives' claim portray Trumpism


OK, here are some books on the top of Amazon’s best-seller list as of earlier this week.
No. 1 is “1984” by George Orwell.
No. 8 is Sinclair Lewis’ “It Can’t Happen Here.”
No. 23 is “Brave New World” by Aldous Huxley.
No. 30 is “Fahrenheit 451” by Ray Bradbury.
After a week or so of the Trump presidency, our “progressive” friends are busy buying up copies of these books to help them explain America’s apparent descent into fascism.
I hate to disappoint our friends in advance, but if they read carefully they will see themselves not as the victims in these books, but as the oppressors – at least in the three classics among them.
Lewis’ book is crude and forgettable, but the other three have endured because they speak of threats to the social order that are timeless and universal.
Progressives will not find a friend in Ray Bradbury. He started voting Republican in 1968 and stood with the tea party toward the end.
“I think our country is in need of a revolution,” Bradbury told the Los Angeles Times in 2010. “There is too much government today. We’ve got to remember the government should be by the people, of the people, and for the people.”
Politically, Aldous Huxley was all over the map. “Brave New World,” however, celebrates the rebellion of the individual against a society in which a scientific elite breeds humans in hatcheries.
If anyone champions a future of this sort, it is hardly Trump supporters. No, the left has a lock on the science-as-god, embryonic stem cell crowd.
