As George Orwell reflects in 1984, oligarchical collectivists have a habit of calling things the opposite of what they really are. For example, the Ministry of Truth is actually the Ministry of Lies. An example from our own oligarchical collectivist regime is causing some confusion, because the regime is also Islamophilic:
State Dept Offers $10 Million Reward For Kill or Capture Of ‘Enemies Of Islam’ IJ Review, August 12, 2013
Sounds like liberals’ love of Islam, which has been swelling like a tumor since September 11, 2001, has gotten completely out of hand. Will these “enemies of Islam” be turned over to al Qaeda for beheading?
Probably not, because in this case “enemy of Islam” means Muslim terrorist — i.e., active as opposed to passive Muslim. These particular Muslim terrorists killed some other Muslims, which is hardly unusual, other Muslims usually being the closest victims at hand.
Maybe Obama wouldn’t feel the need to preface every obfuscation with “let me be clear” if only progressives could overcome their instinctual revulsion for accurate terms.
On a tip from G. Fox.
