Hillary Clinton's Alternative Take On What "1984" Was All About

Tyler Durden's picture

Since the official release of Hillary's new book "What Happened" yesterday, our sense of logic and rational thought has been under constant assault by a steady stream of 'Hillary-isms' which provide some rather dark insights into the bizarro world in which she lives.

That said, we've seen nothing that tops the following excerpt in which Hillary offers up her expert opinion on the key life lesson that should be learned from "1984", namely that we should trust and rely on "our leaders, the press, and experts who seek to guide public policy."

"Attempted to define reality is a core feature of authoritarianism.  This is what the Soviets did when they erased political dissidents from historical photos.  This is what happens in George Orwell's classic novel "Nineteen Eighty-Four," when a torturer holds up four fingers and delivers electric shocks until his prisoner see five fingers as ordered.  The goal is to make you question logic and reason and to sow mistrust toward exactly the people we need to rely on: our leaders, the press, experts who seek to guide public policy based on evidence, ourselves."


Sorry, Hillary...but we're pretty sure that the key takeway from '1984' was not that we should all trust the government and media just a little more...

We've been saying this a lot lately but we find it helpful to clarify in instances such as this...yes, this is real life.

The irony here is that the democratic party and the mainstream media, both entities that Hillary suggests should have your utmost trust and respect, have been on a mission to "sow mistrust" for over a year now with their perpetual 'Russian collusion' narrative...a narrative for which no actual evidence has been presented. 

Of course, after reading that passage above, one can only come to one of two conclusions: i) Hillary has never read 1984 (best case) or ii) Hillary's powers of self-delusion are far greater than anyone ever imagined (worst case).

I am speechless.

This explains much.

This isn't just her take. There are a LOT of neo-libs doing the business of the plutocrats. She just seems to be more brainwashed than the rest.

Hillary and Bill should smother each other with the same pillow.   ;-)

Please take a moment to reflect on how narrowly we avoided having this psychopath in the WH.  As a nation, we dodged a huge bullet coming right at our head.  Don't like Trump?  OK, fine, whatever.  But please consider the alternative.

I guess a combo of both cases that is among the worst.  Without reading or watching 1984, her lifetime vision is endless gov control with no hesitation to destroy what conflicts with her power agenda.  She doesn't care her husband is a rapist.  They are indifferent to murder.  She doesn't care her daughter is an adultery bastard. She is comfortable to carve up her daughter to hide her adultery. She freely sells herself to the highest bidder against her country's interest, etc.

Proof positive that we need to start a campaign to draft her for the Democratic Presidential Nominee for 2020

Hillarywon, you may be our only hope (To keep the Democratic wing of the One Big Party out of sight for a few more years)

Hillary by that paragraph is self defining as the one holding the 4 fingers and asking us to count 5, this is a perfect deflection exercise Alinsky style.

I hope no poor, unsuspecting student attempts to plagiarize this into their grade 10 essay  on 1984...

Judge Napolitano: "It's an institutional culture in government. We don't want to go after our predecessors because we don't want our successors to come after us."

That explains Trump's 'They are good people'.

True to her inner self, she's merely trying to define reality.

I known that everyone here despises Hilary, with outstandingly good reason, but please don't think that her book is her view of the world: it is just propaganda, ghost written to creat funds and spread disinformation. Hilary's idea of writing a book is to have a few meetings where she gets to talk about herself a lot, and then the magic of Hollywood happens without her having to be involved. That's how all books are created  is it not?

Have been pondering the idea if the writer is laughing his way to the bank (and possibly foreign country hide out) after pointing out the extreme mental defects and utter lack of morality and reality with nut case Hilldog.

Don't worry.  None of the socialist training grounds that are U.S. high schools are stupid enough to teach 1984 anymore.  That book would wake the students up, just when they're starting to really get with the socialist indoctrination.  They quit using 1984 in the '80's I suspect.

My own kids (early 00's) never heard of Animal Farm or Lord of the Flies, either. All they got was identity politics agitprop.

I was fortunate enough to talk my son's HS English teacher into using Fahrenheit 451 as the Sophomore year required reading project.  It was a hit.....the kids loved it.  I'd suggest there is some hope but then again I am in Idaho so it may not be a shocker the kids 'got it'.

I graduated HS in 2010; we read all of Orwell, Bradbury & Huxley. I attended public school in south suburbs of Chicago (believe it or not)


There is hope yet...

I read it in 2001. What they didn't teach was Brave New World. IMO that one is the more sinister of the two books - You live in a 24/7 amusement park and never see the life and livelihood being sucked out of you.

Yup. I went through high school during 1994-1996 and I never had to read 1984. It was when a friend of the family (our dentist) lent me a copy that I ended up reading this book on my own.

No worries. Required reading for undergraduate Gender Studies and upper level American History.

If she were right about 1984, I wouldn't have read  it to my kids.

As I left the Libertarian Party due to them running RINOs for office, I am currently registered as no party.

I think I will register as a Democrat so I can vote for candidates like Clinton in thier primaries.

Should be a good laugh.

And remember, she's the pretentious dullard who, right after the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991 the greatest possible testament to the failure of central planning, put herself in charge of redesigning the entire American healthcare system and immediately decided that what it cried out for was . . . more central planning.

I agree "Lock her up". But where? In a prison for crimes against the United States? Or in a mental asylum to prevent her from harming herself any more?


Bigly's picture

She needs to answer for her crimes.  She is a criminal. Period.

mkkby's picture

Someone needs to tell Trump that if he doesn't lock her up, the witch will come back in 2020. This is a real threat, because by then red states will be getting more of a blue tint.

Tyler- It's time to make this story the top-kick article on the board.  This is pure fucking gold.  It's going to take some time for the enormity of this insanity to sink in for some people.

it's stunning to see that putrid old whore actually telling the truth; or her handlers letting her do so. but this crazy-bitch authoritarian worldview has never been a secret to anyone with eyes and a brain. we all knew what she was; and is; and always has been. 

the thing to take away from this is that THIS is what our betters in the democrat partry, and the media, and the boardrooms, and the GOP, and the chamber of commerce, and the perfumed princes of the pentagon & flag rank, and the deep state, and the mormon church wanted us to have rather than Trump. 

whatever else Trump may or may not be, he ain't this - THIS is who 'they' really are. 

in a sane world, this fundamental truth would be taught in schools, starting in kiddiegarten: "identifying the enemy, children". since this world ain't sane, other measures are called for.

I prefer these fake excerpts, particularly the one where her opponent is the Elder God Cthulhu. While the fake excerpt doesn't approach the hysterical level of H.P Lovecraft's quite overwrought prose, it's still amusing, particularly the conclusion, which states that "these formless beings of chaos must be absolutely sexist." I won't be reading her book.

...to find me a bottle of Yuu Baal anejo mescal.

You won't be disappointed my friend.  I like to drink it straight from the bottle, no glass, while sitting cross-legged in the dirt, under the stars, next to a campfire.   

WARNING:  The Surgeon General has determined that this may lead to simply not giving a fuck about the poor assholes in the city.
