Doublethink Defense for the DNC

| February 8, 2017

Several conservative news sources, including Breitbart, have recently reported a story that the liberal media is apparently ignoring because it clearly reflects negatively on the Democrats: a lawsuit that has been filed against the DNC by one of the former candidates to lead that entity. A fellow named Vincent Tolliver, who hails from Arkansas, had recently declared his intent to be one of the ten competing candidates for the job of DNC chair. Unfortunately for Mr. Tolliver, he chose to do something that is highly risky in any Democrat power play: he spoke the truth, a bit of cheeky foolishness that got him quickly and quietly bounced from the competition by current chair, Donna Brazile, another Dem who has had her own problems with truth issues, but for the opposite reason.

Whether Tolliver believed that his own minority status might offer him some freedom to point out a major problem with another minority candidate, we can’t know. But point out he did when he reminded fellow Democrats that their full acceptance of and total support for the LGBT community is a bit out of sync with support for Representative Keith Ellison, a Muslim, to replace Brazile. Tolliver noted that homosexuality is not widely tolerated in Muslim countries and in many can warrant a death penalty. That Tolliver legitimately pointed out a quite logical contradiction in the current Democrat orthodoxy meant nothing to Commissar Brazile, who called for his political defenestration for his religious intolerance, and out the window he went. Tolliver’s intolerable intolerance of a currently coveted religious minority earned him immediate political banishment, if not to the far reaches of Siberia, at least to the eastern reaches of Arkansas, which, for coastal, elitist liberals, is far worse.

The question here is whether this heretical upstart is being banished for what is merely an audacious assault on the usual, widely practiced Democrat hypocrisy, usually a cherished, endearing trait in that party’s candidates, or could it be that he made the far more serious mistake of blaspheming against the party’s increasingly utilized and far more sinister doublethink that George Orwell introduced to the world in his dystopian novel, 1984? Orwell describes that concept:

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.

Can you possibly read that paragraph without seeing similarities to the increasingly bizarre behaviors of Democrats in recent years? That description so describes their conduct that it should be included in their party platform. It certainly explains how Tolliver’s offensive observation was so intolerable to such a militantly tolerant and inclusive organization, does it not? Or how universities are bastions of free speech unless you try to practice actual free speech on a campus? Or how Democrats can scream charges of fascism and totalitarianism at Republican politicians who are merely mimicking Democrats’ previous actions? In fact, it even explains their fanatic insistence on calamitous climate change sans evidence, and globetrotting in private jets to protest the use of fossil fuels. For certain, it shows how they can empower the Muslim faith within the party leadership while simultaneously waving their gay rainbow banners.

If I were Tolliver, I wouldn’t file my suit in a blue state – liberal insanity may be recognized there as a legitimate legal gambit. Call it the Doublethink Defense.

    Sort of like when PETA threw a shit fit because gay bikers were holding a rally and wore leather.
    That’s the problem when you build a party that is full of highly opinionated butt hurt snowflakes.
    If you have so many groups and nutty beliefs eventually one is going to piss off the other.
    Its like the video I saw a while back on some campus where some militant afro chick was trying to take a pair of scissors to some dreadlocked hippies head because he had “appropriated her culture”.

    Once again, say it with me, kids: Liberalism is a mental disease.

    The more we refuse to comply, the more abusive they will get.

    It is like a sick mix between the behavior in a cult and the behavior in an abusive partnetship.

    Sadly, they are going to escalate if we refuse to join the moonbat barking serenade.

    Perhaps the reason they abandon their traditional supporters of racial, sex, etc minorities, in favor of the followers of Mohammed, is that their beliefs and feelings, day by day, increasingly resemble the mindset of a 7th century conquering evangelical warlord.

    They have found their philosophical soul-mate, the slavery, the fanatic faith, the intimidation, the dominate-all-worldview, and are slowly abandoning their old faith and allies for their new master.

    Just watch.

    Every day makes it more apparent that the D-rat party uses George Orwell’s “1984” as a playbook.

  6. HMCS(FMF) ret says:

    The D-rats have embraced the Alinsky Rules… gone balls deep for the JEF… pushed Cankles for POTUS… leaders that should be in nursing homes under 24 hour care… and have nothing but hate, anger, bitterness and division to offer their followers and the nation.

    If they continue their present course, they will be the minority party in federal and state houses for years to come. Only in the truly blue enclaves (blue states and blue cities) will they continue their policies at the expense of those who live there.

      No, they move to a nice red state after they have turned theirs into a shithole and try and turn their new home into one just like the shithole they left and all shout the Mantra, but this is how we did it up NORTH!!!

    Don’t forget that Linda-whatthefuckshername chick in NYC, the one who spouts bullshit about how sharia is so great for women. According to her, paid maternity leave totally makes up for women being legally unable to drive, stoned to death if they get raped, beaten if they don’t at least wear a hijab (if not a full burqa), and sold into sex slavery as children. Personally, I think the bitch should relocate to daesh-controlled Syria and demonstrate how wonderful the sharia life really is.

      See my comments above.

      They are gradually abandoning Marx for Mohammed. The Dems have always had a thing for slavery, and while marxism is certainly a form of it, the followers of Mohammed are rather more direct in claiming slavery as a divine right.

      “Slavery is part of Jihad. Jihad is part of Islam. Thus, slavery is part of islam”.

      The Klingons have a phrase, a deadly insult: tokhe straav’. It means “willing slave”.

      Seems a whole bunch of folks are more than willing, as long as they get to hold the whip over others.

      Many on the left have a certainty of faith, often fanatic, that they can perfect man by command. If the right people give the orders, pass the right laws, and forbid/mandate the right things, we will have a great society here on earth, infinitely tweakable by the waist and smart rulers, who know who they are, of course.

      They cant see the endgame of despotism and despair, because that would call into question the root beliefs of their faith. it doesn’t matter how many times this stuff fails, or the 100 million corpses (and counting), because they -believe- in the Truth, and -this- time they will try it the -right-way, the -True- way, by the -right- people.

      And you, you heretic wreckers, better get with the program or they will liberate you to death.
