“The Ministry of Peace concerns itself with war. The Ministry of Truth with lies. The Ministry of Love with torture, and the Ministry of Plenty with starvation. These contradictions are not accidental, nor do they result from ordinary hypocrisy. They are deliberate exercises in ‘Doublethink’”
Hypocrisy on the wane. Evidence of the end of the “BHO era:”
In a startling reversal of policy, doubtless generated by DJT’s electoral victory, formally risk-averse “Pentagonests” have now decided that our military personnel can request to carry privately-owned, concealed handguns on government facilities, “… for personal protection.”
Guns are suddenly okay, after even mentioning them was forbidden for decades?
Our current Army Chief of Staff, who vehemently opposes this change in policy, has apparently been overridden! In fact, he, and all other politically-correct BHO-era generals and admirals, should probably head for the exit now, and make room for genuine, and armed, warriors!
Of course, this new policy will get off to a creaky start, as there will predictably be much push-back among fearful hoplophobes, of whom there are still many.
I wonder what families of the many “unarmed & murdered” military personnel think about this precipitous change in policy. Maybe a tinge of bitterness that it took an election to bring it about?
Of course, none of this would be taking place at all if HRC, who will enjoy armed bodyguards for the rest of her life, had won!
Hypocrisy is endemic to leftists, and lofty rhetoric is invariably belied by lack of personal respectability:
“Super-celestial thoughts, forever discredited by subterranean conduct”
… as Voltaire put it, back in an age when pointing out blatant hypocrisy on the part of prevaricators in government wasn’t banned as “politically incorrect.”
Those protected by armed bodyguards piously declaring that “ordinary” citizens, including Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, and Airmen, can’t be trusted with guns, is the height of hypocrisy!
We’ll now see a little less of it!
“The essence of immorality is the tendency to make an exception of oneself.”
