George O. must be Proud that Newspeak is now Obamaspeak

“They’re going to say (to voters), well, you know what, you’re still not satisfied and it’s Obama’s fault,” he told donors last night in Los Angeles. “That’s the essence of their campaign.

“It’s very easy to put on a bumper sticker,” the president added. “‘It’s Obama’s Fault.’

DAH—–YES, Mr. President you are the president……..Bo didn’t eat your home work………Could you take responsiblity for something?  What a loser………who’s fault is it if not the most powerful man in the world?

Blackwhite

Blackwhite is defined as follows:

…this word has two mutually contradictory meanings. Applied to an opponent, it means the habit of impudently claiming that black is white, in contradiction of the plain facts. Applied to a Party member, it means a loyal willingness to say that black is white when Party discipline demands this. But it means also the ability to believe that black is white, and more, to know that black is white, and to forget that one has ever believed the contrary. This demands a continuous alteration of the past, made possible by the system of thought which really embraces all the rest, and which is known in Newspeak as doublethink.

—Orwell, 1984

Doublethink:

To know and not to know, to be conscious of complete truthfulness while telling carefully constructed lies, to hold simultaneously two opinions which cancelled out, knowing them to be contradictory and believing in both of them, to use logic against logic, to repudiate morality while laying claim to it, to believe that democracy was impossible and that the Party was the guardian of democracy, to forget, whatever it was necessary to forget, then to draw it back into memory again at the moment when it was needed, and then promptly to forget it again, and above all, to apply the same process to the process itself – that was the ultimate subtlety; consciously to induce unconsciousness, and then, once again, to become unconscious of the act of hypnosis you had just performed. Even to understand the word ‘doublethink’ involved the use of doublethink.

and he loves to give bellyfeels:

The word bellyfeel means a blind, enthusiastic acceptance of an idea.

The word likely comes from the idea that any good Oceanian should be able to internalize Party doctrine to the extent that it becomes a gut instinct – a feeling in the belly.

Those are my thoughts for today……..for this hour……….right now.
