    Orwell’s “1984” Comes to Life: Covington Catholic Teen Persecuted For Committing “FACECRIME”
    https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/201...ing-facecrime/



    Sandmann is a teenage boy who showed incredible restraint in the face of being harassed and heckled by black racists who called him a “cracker.”

    After being heckled by black racists, a far left Native American activist approached Sandmann, got in his face and loudly beat a drum while chanting.

    The left-wing media persecuted Sandmann for his “smirk” or as George Orwell called it “facecrime.”

    In Part 1, Chapter 5 of George Orwell’s 1984, citizens are persecuted for having a politically incorrect expression on their face:

    “The smallest thing could give you away. A nervous tic, an unconscious look of anxiety, a habit of muttering to yourself—anything that carried with it the suggestion of abnormality, of having something to hide. In any case, to wear an improper expression on your face (to look incredulous when a victory was announced, for example) was itself a punishable offence. There was even a word for it in Newspeak: facecrime, it was called.”

    There are still assholes out there ( a nice number of them at DU ) who even after watching the whole video and finding out the truth still want to hurt ( some even want to kill ) the MAGA hat kid, all the rest of the boys there, and the school. Why?

    I think that these jerkazoids have been living too long in their own private little bubbles across the country and now they are more then ready to destroy anyone who challenges their PC religion/cult even in the slightest way.
    SJWs, BAMN, ANTIFA have been ready to smash all who dare reject their belief system for some time now; the next time somebody might get killed by some assholes's fake news story.

    Good find, Elspeth!

    So true and a most dangerous sign of the times in which we are now living.

    Makes me want to go back and re-read for the umpteenth time his book, which I have up in Georgia, and not down here.

    That book unfortunately, is becoming more relative and scary as time goes by these days.

    (Oh well, at least I am able to enjoy reading Judge Jeanine Pirro's "Liars, Leakers, and Liberals" book that hubby bought me for Christmas.)

    Their prejudices do not allow them to think any other way.
