“Doublespeak is language that deliberately obscures, disguises, distorts, or reverses the meaning of words. Doublespeak may take the form of euphemisms, in which case it is primarily meant to make the truth sound more palatable. It may also refer to intentional ambiguity in language or to actual inversions of meaning”. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doublespeak
I thought I would provide the definition of the word “doublespeak” because much of our language has been co-opted; meaning to divert to or use in a role different from the usual or original one by those we want to rewrite meanings.
We are being fed lies and misinformation primarily by the white house along with their cohorts. Their misuse of social media is unprecedented, their blatant lies are other worldly in bias and tone. Yet they continue to mislead, misinform and perpetrate their agenda unabated. Why the lies?
If this were anyone else the world would be on fire and there would be riots in the streets… well now we have protesters in the streets albeit for other reasons equally heinous, nevertheless no real outcry regarding the liar in chief. Why won’t those charged with reporting the truth fervently speak up against this administration? Not only our press afraid to show up, those elected to defend the Constitution, speak for “the people” seem to have no weight when it comes to demanding legal action against the horrendous actions of this administration.
Another example of lawlessness.
One of the most alarming things I have come to realize is our neighbors, friends and family are blind to what is happening to this country. It’s as if FACTS are irrelevant. As a nation we are as the three monkeys; see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil… Wrong! we must address what is in our face, if for no other reason than for the sake of our children and grand children.
We have an obligation to leave this world a better place to those coming behind us. In all good conscience we must demand better in every area of our lives for everyone. No one is exempt from the stupidity of this White House, no one.
This is my personal rally call to my fellow humans to stand up for right. We are born with knowing what is right and wrong; let us stop with the foolishness and pettiness of society’s prejudices and bias’…
Speak truth to power and realize the only power people have over anyone is the power you give them. Take back your power, take back righteousness, take back loving your neighbor…and stand up!
We don’t want the next generations to live in this pit of 45’s feeble mind. We are better as a people, we are better than what we see, what we experience, what we are living through.
Over-stand what is being done to our sensibilities and turn the spell of doublespeak on its head.
