Somewhat belatedly. Born Eric Arthur Blair, in India, on June 25th, 1903.
It is hardly the man’s fault that his seminal work, written as a chilling dystopian warning regarding the destruction of liberty, has become an instruction manual for the far-Left “Liberal” Secular-Progressive Statists who now hold the levers of power in our once-great Republic.
“He who controls the past controls the future. He who controls the present controls the past.”
“It’s a beautiful thing, the destruction of words.”
“We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it.”
“They could be made to accept the most flagrant violations of reality, because they never fully grasped the enormity of what was demanded of them, and were not sufficiently interested in public events to notice what was happening.”
If you refuse to agree that 2 + 2 = 5, you are racist, sexist, misogynistic, homophobic, Islamophobic, anti-child, and probably watch Fox News.

Sometimes the stories just write themselves. From NYDN:
An Indiana bus transit system director and president of a local NAACP chapter was arrested for selling cocaine to a confidential informant, once asking for sexual favors in exchange for the drug, cops say.
Miles told cops he’d buy an ounce of coke for $1,250, then sell it off and double his take to pay off his child support, according to the documents.
Child support? Good lordy. I know some guys call it “junior”, but that doesn’t really make it “supporting a child”.
Miles, who has been president of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People chapter in Muncie since December 2013, reportedly sold drugs to the informant three different times. Once was in a park with kids nearby and another time, he asked for sex instead of cash, according to cops.
But you have to admire his entrepreneurial acumen, as he was leveraging his position as a transportation official with Muncie Indiana Transit System (MITS) to aid in the distribution of his burgeoning enterprise.
Timothy Miles, 49, was in uniform, wearing his work badge and in a Muncie Indiana Transit System (MITS) vehicle when he was arrested Wednesday near the downtown Muncie Civic Center, according to the Delaware County Sheriff’s Department.
What would a beer commercial say? “Here’s to you, dealing cocaine from a gummint vehicle guy!”
If you aren’t watching the FX hit series The Americans, you probably should. Annet Mahendru plays the Soviet KGB temptress/double agent, Nina Sergeevna. Ironically Annet is of Russian and Indian descent and was born in Afganistan.
Those who know, know. Part III.
Oh, and it’s NEVER Black Flag out there. When I say never, I mean ALWAYS. ‘Cept when it’s freezing-ass cold.

We ain’t lettin’ them into OUR neighborhood!
This is NOT an April Fools” Day joke. Merely more of the racial double standard which is positively ingrained in the far-left. This wisdom from Crown Heights Councilwoman Laurie Cumbo, a rather rabid anti-Semitic Democrat, who apparently has an issue with a minority other than the one she is a part of being in a public housing project:
A Brooklyn city councilwoman wants to know why “blocs” of Asians are living in two Fort Greene housing projects — and suggested it would be “beneficial” to assign housing by ethnic group.
“How is it that one specific ethnic group has had the opportunity to move into a development in large numbers?”
Segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever! By God, she DOES sound like a Democrat!
Continuing the theme of Identity Politics of her race-baiting husband, Michelle Obama declares “Black Girls Rock!”
Oh, I know, it is just a harmless event to boost the self-esteem of a racially defined section of our population. I am also certain that any similar event called “White Girls Rock!” would be accepted with open arms by “da Black Communitah”, and no celebrities who spoke there would ever be accused of being hateful racist bigots who have neo-Nazi tendencies, or might, in fact, be Klan members.
Sectarianism and the racial double standard. The gifts that keep giving.
I almost spit out my coffee. Carol is awesome. Just awesome. These days, she makes Shane look like Stuart Smalley.
