Welcome to the World of Newspeak

By Rick Pearcey • October 22, 2009, 06:14 AM

"In George Orwell's novel 1984, Newspeak refers to language designed by a totalitarian regime to control thought and make subversive speech impossible," writes Janet Levy at American Thinker.

"It destroyed words with prohibited meanings so that heretical thoughts couldn't be expressed. A form of censorship, Newspeak employed euphemisms and words deliberately opposite the reality they described."

From "man-caused disasters" (terrorism) to "a woman's right to choose" (the taking of human life) to the "Defense of Marriage Act" (forcing same-sex "marriage" on all states), Levy takes us on an examination of "Newspeak at work" today.
