Double Plus Ungood

This reminds me of the words of Syme, the dictionary editor in Nineteen Eighty Four

It’s a beautiful thing, the destruction of words. Of course the great wastage is in the verbs and adjectives, but there are hundreds of nouns that can be got rid of as well. … Don’t you see that the whole aim of Newspeak is to narrow the range of thought? In the end we shall make thoughtcrime literally impossible, because there will be no words in which to express it.

That Was Then, This Is Now

Campus Reform reports that Troy Storfjell, a professor from Pacific Christian University, has stated that he “he has no problem if a ‘fascist’ gets ‘beaten up’ by Antifa.” He was referring to reporter Andy Ngo who has been assaulted by Antifa. Prof. Storffjelll appears to be confused about who was wearing a fascist black shirt and was rioting.

Lutheran Pastor Dietrich Bonhoeffer was unavailable for comment.
