Nancy Pelosi Calls for Ban on the Word Hate

One of the many frightening aspects of George Orwell’s 1984 is the way bureaucrats limit human thought by eliminating words from the language. Once again, liberals are using the book not as a warning, but as a Tyranny for Dummies guide:

Fired former Speaker of the House and current Minority Leader, Nancy Pelosi, is going on record as saying that she wants to use censorship to ban one, particular word that she does not like. The word? “Hate.” To hear Pelosi tell it, she really hates it when other Americans use the word “hate” in a political context. Pelosi’s overreaction is in response to the Bill O’Reilly Superbowl interview with Barack Obama, in which the host asked the president about the number of people who hate him. Pelosi’s reply to the O’Reilly question was swift and confident: Simply stop using the word, and everything will be fine.

From the point of view Pelousy would like us to share, no one objects to Comrade Obama’s forced collectivism; we just hate him for racial reasons, since anyone who doesn’t identify with the liberal elite must be a bigot. But if our bureaucratic overlords confiscate the word hate from our vocabulary the way they confiscate our earnings, we won’t be able to hate him anymore. Then we will embrace socialism and all be united under the heel of Big Government.

Political harmony could be further promoted by banning the words liberty, independence, dignity, and mine.

Not even the English language is safe from Nasty’s ideas.
