Orwell 101: Obama Downplays Ebola as Elections Loom


War is peace, freedom is slavery, ignorance is strength and 2+2=5. Those all come from George Orwell’s enduring classic novel of a totalitarian dystopia "1984" but could easily be adapted for Obama’s America in 2014.  A critical component of Orwell’s book is the perversion of language and the triumph of the lies of the state in enhancing its own power. It is called “newspeak” and is an indispensable item in big toolbox of the American political establishment. The government now lies as a first resort, no longer even bothering with the truth. The corrupt state media – long in bed with the Obama regime – then reinforces the lies and the system continues to rot as Americans get the shaft over and over again. El Presidente, with the clock ticking down towards the November elections did Orwell proud during his Saturday morning weekly presidential radio address.

President Ebola’s message to the nation is described by the Washington Post in a piece entitled “Obama: ‘We can’t give in to hysteria or fear’ of Ebola” from which I excerpt the following:

President Obama on Saturday sought to tamp down fears of an Ebola outbreak and defend his administration from Republican critics who have called for a more aggressive response to the disease, including sealing off U.S. borders to visitors from countries battling widespread outbreaks.
“We can’t just cut ourselves off from West Africa, where this disease is raging,” Obama said in his weekly radio address. “Trying to seal off an entire region of the world — if that were even possible — could actually make the situation worse.”

Such actions would make it harder for American health-care workers, soldiers and supplies to reach stricken areas and could prompt residents of countries in West Africa where Ebola is still spreading to try to evade screening on their way to the United States or Europe, Obama said.

The president’s main message was one of calm, coming at a time of growing worry in communities throughout the country. “We can’t give in to hysteria or fear, because that only makes it harder to get people the accurate information they need,” Obama said. “If we’re guided by science — the facts, not fear — then I am absolutely confident we can prevent a serious outbreak here in the United States.”

Just ‘trust me’ is the message from Obama and how many times have Americans heard that one before only to be hornswoggled?  Travel restrictions are off the table and would only "make the situation worse". There is more than a whiff of 2+2=5 in that sort of batshit crazy type of reasoning.  Had travel restrictions been imposed on flights from the Ebola hotbed in Africa to begin with and had Barry’s incompetent lackeys not downplayed the danger of bringing Ebola victims to America the virus would still be alien to the U.S.A. Ironically, this could not have happened at a worse time for Obama with another electoral "shellacking" looming and now the Democrat propaganda machine is frantically flying into action.

The cesspool of keening, orange bellied liberal cyber-swine, Daily Kos had Obama’s back in a post “Obama explains Ebola to the fear-based, freaked-out public in weekly address” and a coordinated effort is now in the works. The most critical aspect of the domestic Ebola outbreak now is how to best control the message in the waning days before the elections.  Democratic party operatives are already attacking Republicans as racists responsible for spreading an Ebola panic in order to score political points but that is just total crap. Not that the Republicans aren't racists - they are - but the Dems are equally rotten with selectively playing the race card whenever it suits their political needs.  There are even smears being peddled to attack libertarians such as Rand Paul as being an “Ebola truther” to stifle criticism of Obama. The desperation from the red jackass party is intense and growing by the minute. Any downplaying of the threat of the virus is all sleazy politics to keep the Senate under Harry Reid’s corrupt leadership and the dogs of impeachment at bay.

This is why Sunday morning’s propaganda circuit features Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases on all five major networks to assure the sheep that all is under control. The elections were likely a key concern in Obama’s appointment of longtime Democrat political hack, Ron Klain as Ebola czar despite the inconvenient truth that he has no medical background. It’s all about keeping the lid on things until after November 4th and avoiding the loss of the Senate. If Ebola is going to go national, it just needs to wait until after the votes have been cast. That's the way that the administration sees it.

So don’t worry, be happy and vote for a Democrat.

Orwell was an optimist.
