“1984:” First Time as Tragedy, Second Time as Farce, As “Bruce Jenner” Goes Down The Memory Hole
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia(Redirected from Bruce Jenner)
As terrifying as The Party was, Winston Smith at least got paid to do this kind of thing.
In The Spectator, Brendan O’Neill points out the Orwellian 2 + 2 = 5 aspect:
The worship of Caitlyn, and the hectoring of anyone who refuses to scrape before her icon, has graphically exposed the intolerant edge to trans thinking. The insistence that we not only refer to Bruce/Caitlyn as ‘she’ but also project this backwards – recognising, in the words of the Guardian, that she has ‘always been a woman’ – is borderline Orwellian. It’s a rewriting of history, a memory-holing of old inconvenient facts. Strikingly, the Guardian writer says people like Bruce/Caitlyn have ‘always been women… even when they were “fathering” children’. Notice it’s the ‘fathering’ bit that is in scare quotes, suggesting it wasn’t real, while the description of Bruce as a woman is treated as an incontestable truth. War is peace, freedom is slavery, man is woman.
