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.

… as a Democrat, CNN reports:
Sanders caucuses with the Democrats in the Senate but is an unlikely candidate for the Democratic nomination, primarily because he has never been a registered member of the party and calls himself a “democratic socialist.”
It remains to be seen whether the Democratic Party would be willing to move that far to the right.
Or, as this Administration would couch it, this is either another tragic college campus shooting that highlights the need for stricter gun laws, or just some folks shooting at other folks, in which no one religion is responsible. NBC News has the story.
Al Shabab, an al Qaeda-linked terror group based in neighboring Somalia, claimed responsibility for the pre-dawn attack. Sheik Abdiasis Abu Musab, the group’s military operations spokesman, said many Christians were being held by the militants. “We sorted people out and released the Muslims,” he told Reuters.
Witnesses corroborated the Al-Shabab claims:
When the gunmen arrived at his dorm he could hear them opening doors and asking if the people who had hidden inside whether they were Muslims or Christians. “If you were a Christian, you were shot on the spot,” Wetangula told The Associated Press. “With each blast of the gun I thought I was going to die.”
Prayers for the lives of the Christians who are hostages to these muhammedan monsters. And for the souls who died because of their faith. It is likely too late to pray that our Islamist sympathizer of a Chief Executive would have a pang of conscience about the massacres perpetrated by the radical Islamists whom he refuses to name as America’s enemies. Reverend Wright got his wish. God did damn America, with lazy, media-brainwashed voters who twice elected the empty-suit charlatan whose “hope and change” has eroded liberty, alienated our allies, and emboldened our enemies.
By all means, however, let’s avoid calling these filthy animals what they are. Let’s instead make a deal with Iran to facilitate their nuclear weapons efforts. Understanding that some things are not negotiable.

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.
Seems Barack Obama can’t keep the fibs straight. From thefederalistpapers.org. In a CBS interview with Bill Plante, this is what His Majesty had to say:
Nope. Certainly sounds like he never e-mailed her. Had no idea about the private e-mail domain. But now Josh Earnest tells us that Obama did indeed e-mail Hillary, at that private address and private domain, in her role as Secretary of State. Which means, as TFP points out, that Obama was lying. Through his teeth. Again. Knowing good and well he is covering for his boss’s dishonesty, Earnest keeps trying to tell us “the point” is something other than Barack Obama being caught in another lie.
The rest is just a tap-dance to cover that fact. But I am sure Brother Barack is telling the truth about banning ammunition, and about Obamacare, and regulation of the internet, and Benghazi, and the IRS, and Solyndra, and Iran, and…..
