Quote# 64435

I recently re-read George Orwell's 1984. In it, all the party members have a daily ritual called "the 2 minutes Hate". They gather in front of a telescreen to watch Big Brother talk, and then the most hated enemy of the state, Goldstein, is shown. All the party members scream, beat their chests, throw things at the screen, and generally let out all the vile feelings they may be having because of their miserable existence and focus it all on this one object of hate, Goldstein.

The liberals are a miserable lot, and Sarah is their Goldstein.

Just like gays, liberals, and non-Christians are your Goldstein, eh buddy?

No, I don't hate Caribou Barbie. I just don't want her to have any sort of political power. If she goes back to the kitchen like a good little vessel, that would be a-ok with me.

Your on a website were you would be instantly banned for expressing any positive feelings towards the party's *mods* enemies *Obama*, you regularly ignore *election results* and rewrite history *founding fathers wanted theocracy, Darwin repented on deathbed...* to fit your current talking points and you proudly scream for war against enemies you intentionally know almost nothing about except that the party calls them evil.

But no, 1984 describes 'liberals' *whatever that means when they use it as a slur*

Last time I checked 1984 was a fiction novel.

Nobody would waste that amount of energy on Sarah (Palin, I presume). We'll just laugh at her for a second, and get on with our lives.

Er... I think she's not the smartest cookie, but I hardly throw things at the TV when she's on. Then again I'm more independent; I wish we had real OTHER choices on the table in the US.

Oh, and reread 1984 again, I think you are probably missing some of the points... m'kay? Hell, I might pick it up again, been a few years.

It has been obvious to me for some time that conservatives and christians do comedy and sarcasm poorly, to the point that it's almost painful to watch them make the attempt.
Now I'm going to have to add anologies to that list.

Uhm. . . no. I can't stand to listen to her and I think her being in charge would be bad for the country, but I don't hate her. Not liking someone's opinions =/= hating said person. I don't suppose you would understand that though.

> Sarah is their Goldstein.

Sarah is an antagonistic propaganda figure made up by the Liberals to make the Conservatives look bad?

I *knew* someone that dumb and obnoxious couldn't exist for real!

Sarah Palin is just one of the acts in the 3-ring circus of the Republican party- I really don't pay all that much attention to her.

Sounds to me like BoGo is describing the closing prayer at a Southern Baptist church.

Focusing all your hatred on one object is still better than directing it towards anyone who might even be slightly different from you.

I am surprised anyone from RR was reading anything by a godless Socialist like Orwell.

Did you just give us your two minutes of hate?

I would point out the obvious irony, but it would be too easy.

Sayeth the people who have been screaming and beating their chests every single day since Obama got elected.....

You mean like how Bill Clinton is your Goldstein? 8 years and you're still blaming the almighty Clenis for every one of Bushie Boy's fuckups.

I think you have missed the point of the novel.

Actually, the Two Minutes Hate sounds like Palin's voter base. Those people in her audience were nuts.

you do realize that the government was supposed like organized religion, right? keeping the populace willfully ignorant of science and the truth and having the few leaders live in luxury, and teaching them to unconditionally hate followers of other groups
