On Succumbing to Lies


By Robert Ringer

As we move ever closer to becoming Oceania, Eurasia, or Eastasia, the superstates in George Orwell’s dystopian novel, 1984, the overriding question of our time is what percentage of the population will ultimately come to accept lies as truth without any serious analysis of the facts.

The recent election is a good barometer for this question.  Most people, including most Democrat voters, are fully aware that Donald Trump overwhelmingly won the 2020 presidential election and that Democrats massively cheated.  Taken together, all the fraud perpetrated in this election almost certainly caused a swing of 5 million or more votes away from Trump and into the Biden column.

But it is not necessary to prove fraud to be certain that Trump’s loss was a colossal lie.  To a thinking person, it’s much simpler than that.  All one need do is take into account two factors:

First, when candidate “A” is drawing tens of thousands of people to his rallies and candidate “B” puts 12 attendees to sleep while waving to nine horn-honking gooney birds in a parking lot, any fool knows that it’s not possible for candidate “B” to win.

Second, an incumbent either pulls his down-ticket up or down, depending upon his own success or failure.  There is no such thing as a presidential candidate losing his election while his down-ticket runs the table.  It’s never happened before, and it never will happen.  The Republican red wave in the House and Senate is absolute proof that President Trump won reelection — and won easily — and probably came close to winning the popular vote as well.

Right now, more than half the population is not accepting the big lie that a senile, befuddled old crook pulled off a middle-of-the-night election miracle.  But if the Dems gain control of all three levers of power — House, Senate, and White House (which would also assure control of the Supreme Court in a short period of time) — it would put them in a position to spoon feed the public their corrupt interpretation of the news.  It would then be only a matter of time until a vast majority of the public succumbed to the lie-based fictional world created by Democrats.

Right now, you only have to put up with feeble Uncle Ezra’s babbling about what a kind and gentle man FDR was, but what if 80-90 percent of the population bought into the lies of the Radical Left day in and day out?  That’s precisely where we’re headed if we don’t get serious about primarying the Rubios, Thunes, Murkowskis, et al when their reelection times roll around, because, as I have contended for decades, it is feckless, cowardly, turncoat Republicans who make Democrat treachery possible.

Unfortunately, because of President Trump’s foolish endorsements, we can’t give the hook to scoundrels like Mitt Romney, Ben Sasse, and Mike Braun for another four to six years down the road, but that doesn’t mean we can’t start exterminating the RINOs coming up for reelection in 2022.  If Republicans don’t get serious about cleaning house, it’s only a matter of time until a majority of Americans start mouthing those chilling words in 1984 on a daily basis:  war is peace, freedom is slavery, ignorance is strength.

Sleep well.
