Left Perverts Language

Prager U is out with another video, this one detailing the ways in which the Left perverts language to advance both political and cultural goals.

After all, a significant part of Orwell’s 1984 focuses on the way in which totalitarian government deliberately, and with force of arms, uses a language called “Newspeak” to pervert, degrade, and diminish speech. It does so to limit people’s ability to think and to advance its political objectives.

Prager University is just out with a new video featuring Michael Knowles providing a pithy rundown of the Lefts’ worst linguistic offenders:
