A Problem With External Reality

Mark Steyn, noting the degree to which the country shut its eyes to the world outside yesterday:
~George Orwell in a famous passage from 1984:
In the end the Party would announce that two and two made five, and you would have to believe it. It was inevitable that they should make that claim sooner or later: the logic of their position demanded it. Not merely the validity of experience, but the very existence of external reality, was tacitly denied by their philosophy.
Two plus two equals five. A severed head plus "Allahu Akbar!" equals "Nothing to do with Islam." Network screenings of Gone With The Wind plus Uncle Ben's rice equals blatant incitement to mass murder. A nice chichi gay couple at 27 Elm Street and a firebreathing imam and his four child brides at 29 Elm Street equals the social harmony of a multiculti utopia.

Where is this story headed?... What Marx called the internal contradictions of capitalism have nothing on those of "diversity".

And so the leader of the free world lights the White House LGBT as the tourist corpses are removed from their sunbeds.

Grim- this guy needs to go on the roster of Hero's. From the Telegraph--

" Thousands of pounds has been raised for a man shot three times as he tried to save his fiancee from a terrorist gunman.

Matthew James - a gas engineer from Trehafod, Pontypridd, south Wales - was hit in the hip, chest and pelvis as he shielded wife-to-be Sarah Wilson from gunfire at the Tunisian beach resort of Sousse. "

A roster of heroes would be a good idea.

The only thing I can say about the Rainbow (might as well start calling it Gaybow give the total appropriation of it- there's a whole section in Target today of 'Pride' merchandise for the Pridefest weekend) lighting of the White House - The yellow streak is honest enough.
