1984 in de Blasio’s New York City

1984 - Big BrotherAnd just how prescient was George Orwell?

“It’s a beautiful thing, the destruction of words.”

“The choice for mankind lies between freedom and happiness and for the great bulk of mankind, happiness is better.”

“Orthodoxy means not thinking–not needing to think. Orthodoxy is unconsciousness.”

“We do not merely destroy our enemies; we change them.”

New York businesses face hefty penalties for ‘misgendering’ customers

by Branford Richardson

Greeting customers as “Mr.” or “Mrs.” — or even not using the pronoun “ze” or “zir” — could prove costly for New York City businesses under rules drafted by Mayor Bill de Blasio’s bureaucrats.

But wait.

STOP THE PRESSES 2This is where I ask quite bluntly: what the fuck is a ze or a zir?

Here’s the problem with Leftists.  Force.  Conscription.  Pushing.  Leftists are not satisfied with allowing people to make their own decisions or to leave people alone.  They must, instead, tear down in order to build back up a system that only they can see and understand.  You, as a non-Leftist, do not have the mental capacity to understand their concepts and, as the menial Groundling, Prole or Serf that you are, you must be forced to comply.  Dissent cannot be tolerated.  Differing viewpoints cannot exist.  You have not the capability to perceive their higher-level thinking patterns and, because of this, there is no other option save that of duress, mandatory compulsion, intimidation and, ultimately, the law.  Further: there must be pain.  You must be punished for transgressions.

LEFTIST WORD POLICEPunished by the Leftist Word Police.

The Gotham mayor’s Commission on Human Rights says entities that fail to address customers by their preferred gender pronouns and titles are in violation of the law and could be subject to penalties of up to $250,000.

Correct.  The “wrong words” escaping your lips can subject your business, in New York City, courtesy of and endorsed and pushed by Mayor Bill de Blasio, to a quarter million dollar fine.

The maximum civil fine that the commission may impose upon “misgendering” is $125,000. But when the violation is the “result of willful, wanton, or malicious conduct,” the maximum fine can double to $250,000.

And just who determines what is “willful, wanton or malicious”?  A council of non-partisans?  A group of randomly-selected persons?  A committee consisting of an equal amount of liberals and conservatives?  No way.  That would be the very same Leftists who wrote and endorsed the original regulation itself.

Oh but wait — as I customarily say — it gets better.

While businesses are held to a strict standard, the guidance makes clear that the government is exempt from the law in “circumstances where certain federal, state, or local laws require otherwise (e.g., for the purposes of employment eligibility verification with the federal government).”

There you go.  The government itself — the entity placing this onerous harness upon the shoulders of business — is exempt.

“All animals are equal but some animals are more equal than others.”
— George Orwell, “Animal Farm”

This is sheer Leftist insanity.  A truly accurate DSM V would in fact list Leftism as a mental disorder.

Which it is.

Tales from a Communist

Obama In Cuba with Che Guevara BehindAmerica is turning Communist.

And no one recognizes a Communist like another Communist, or one living or having lived under a Communist regime.

From the DailyCaller.com:

Cuban-American Filmmaker Warns America Is Morphing Into Communist Country

by Ginni Thomas

Filmmaker and American citizen Agustin Blazquez never thought his native Cuba would become a communist country, but now he sees the same radical shift happening in America.

Correct.  Because each new advocate of Socialism or Communism believes fervently in his or her heart that he or she can truly make it work, if only they were given their own opportunity.  They could “do it better than the last guy” if only they were provided the chance.   Despite what history tells us, and in consideration of the definition of insanity.  They are like their own personal vision of Reddy Kilowatt.  Reddy Kilowatt

In this exclusive video interview for The Daily Caller News Foundation, he says the left has been clever by using “very non-threatening words,” like liberal, progressive and concerned citizens, for advancing government control of American lives. The truth about Cuban politics is hard to find because of media spin and propaganda dominating American discourse.

For Blazquez, watching American youth embrace avowed socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders for president, strikes him as “absurd.” It is the end result, he says, of the cultural Marxist education and media propaganda that has anesthetized too many Americans who do not defend the values that made America exceptional.

Now, however, it is bad for America to be “exceptional.”  That is judgmental.  America is no better than any other country and is frequently — almost always — worse than any other country.  Just ask a Leftist.

And this, ladies and gentlemen, is part and parcel of precisely why Leftists more and more not only want but command the meanings of words to change.  It is about control, nothing but control.

Not control by the people.  Oh no.

Control by the government.  Leftists wish the government to be the ultimate arbiter in everyone’s life.  Der Regierung.

No one knows how to run your life like a Leftist or the government as far as they are concerned.  Your silly-assed views about “what you want” don’t count.  Proles, groundlings, serfs.  STFU and step aside.  Concede your sins and repent, apostate.

FEDERAL GOVERNMENT PURPOSEEnter Orwell’s 1984, written in 1948.  Numerical transposition?  If you have not yet read it, by all means, drop everything and acquire a copy.  Do that now.  Read it.  The similarities to the UK, Europe and now the US are startling.

Millennials do not embrace privacy.  They do not embrace independence.  They embrace babysitting, hand-holding and Free Cheese.

Listen up:

“He who controls the past controls the future. He who controls the present controls the past.”

“War is peace. Freedom is slavery.  Ignorance is strength.”

“The choice for mankind lies between freedom and happiness and for the great bulk of mankind, happiness is better.”

“For, after all, how do we know that two and two make four? Or that the force of gravity works? Or that the past is unchangeable? If both the past and the external world exist only in the mind, and if the mind itself is controllable – what then?”

Meaning: words are mouth diapers to be changed whenever convenience beckons?  Like babies who shit their drawers?

[Note: BZ’s Axiom is: whoever controls SCOTUS and education controls the US.”]

Watching President Barack Obama travel to Cuba, he says, made him “want to throw up.” This was a “betrayal to victims of communism,” the filmmaker of “Covering Cuba” says. Blazquez adds there are “so many [Nelson] Mandelas” in Cuban prisons, who are tortured, denied medical attention and abused. Yet, prominent black elites from America, including most incredibly to him, the Congressional Black Caucus, are wined and dined by the political elites but are blind to their “betrayal of blacks in Cuba.”

Barack Hussein Obaka was wined and dined by the Castros and was dared by Raul Castro to name anyone held illegally in a Cuban prison.  Did Obaka perform the obvious resultant task and pull out his phone and Google “Cuban political prisoner names” as would any other logical thinking human being with technology at their fingertips these days?

Of course not.  Obaka was too busy concentrating on the sucking of Cuban cock.  For his legacy, you see.  He’d been practicing for years on Cuban cigars, available as they were for our elite political class despite their proscription.

As the “fundamental transformation of America” continues under Obama’s governance, Blazquez warns that elites in America are in a precarious situation. Their privileges, rights and property could evaporate fast with America’s trend towards erosion of liberties. “Wake up, America!” the Cuban-American proclaims.

This of course hearkens me to a perfect Animal Farm quote with regard to the application of government in America:

“All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.”

Listen to this author, America.

UK: waltzing into 1984

1984 - Big BrotherIt’s good to know that history repeats itself.

The UK is now the prime example.

From the UKDailyMail.com:

Put CCTV in EVERY home: Householders should help us trap burglars, says Scotland Yard chief

by Chris Greenwood

 

  • Families should install their own cameras to help catch burglars, he said
  • The Met chief said Britain needed more cameras to help fight crime

 

But privacy campaigners condemned the Metropolitan Police Commissioner’s suggestion.

‘The proposals on increasing the amount of privately owned CCTV cameras are quite frankly Orwellian and risk turning members of the public into an extension of the police,’ said Renate Samson of Big Brother Watch.

‘Private CCTV is completely unregulated. Recommending greater use of CCTV to gather more images of people’s faces – often innocent people’s faces – undermines the security of each and every one of us.’

She pointed out that a House of Commons committee had on Saturday released a report on the problems with facial recognition.

“Orwellian?”

Now there’s a foreign pot calling the kettle “1984.”

Piers Morgan and CNN Plan End to His Prime-Time Show

Piers Morgan CNN Church SignFrom the NYTimes.com:

Piers Morgan and CNN Plan End to His Prime-Time Show

by David Carr, The Media Equation

There have been times when the CNN host Piers Morgan didn’t seem to like America very much — and American audiences have been more than willing to return the favor. Three years after taking over for Larry King, Mr. Morgan has seen the ratings for “Piers Morgan Live” hit some new lows, drawing a fraction of viewers compared with competitors at Fox News and MSNBC.

It’s been an unhappy collision between a British television personality who refuses to assimilate — the only football he cares about is round and his lectures on guns were rife with contempt — and a CNN audience that is intrinsically provincial. After all, the people who tune into a cable news network are, by their nature, deeply interested in America.

Perhaps a brief interjection: actual listening Americans deplored being lectured-to by a stunningly ineffectual media cunt who wouldn’t know how to defend himself in a game of tag.  Because, after all, that United Kingdom — they’re certainly the epitome of national power and stolid sovereignty, are they not?

Yes.  They are not.

“Look, I am a British guy debating American cultural issues, including guns, which has been very polarizing, and there is no doubt that there are many in the audience who are tired of me banging on about it,” he said. “That’s run its course and Jeff and I have been talking for some time about different ways of using me.”

Yes, I know, it’s that pesky Second Amendment we stupid Yankees seem to revere.  Clinging to our “small town” guns and religion.  But isn’t it odd that you shepherd’s-pie-eating Brits seem to surround yourselves with more and more guns held by government officials than at any other point in your history?  And still you’re losing your culture and your significance and your own sovereignty day by bleeding day?

Perhaps a bit of accuracy is called for:

Mr. Morgan’s approach to gun regulation was more akin to King George III, peering down his nose at the unruly colonies and wondering how to bring the savages to heel. He might have wanted to recall that part of the reason the right to bear arms is codified in the Constitution is that Britain was trying to disarm the citizenry at the time.

Damn Mr Carr for ripping a sheet from the play-book of Captain Obvious.

I say: send Mr Morgan, the quintessential loser British twat, back to the UK where he can take up the cause of Muslims and those who wish to destroy the United Kingdom and other oppressive Western civilizations.  And enjoy, Mr Morgan, your prognosticated Orwellian 1984 at least a few more years before we Yanks will.

Firearms-free, of course.  Because average UK citizens cannot and never will be trusted with “bang-sticks” in their possession.  An actual Webley in the hand of Piers Morgan himself?  Think of the children!

A bit of sarcasm there, eh wot?

BZ

P.S.
I wonder from where the origins of the words Prole and Serf and Groundling source?  Perhaps you can tell me, Mr Morgan?

P.P.S.
Oh.  That’s right.  From British books and plays and history.  Imagine that.

Fornicalia seeks a replacement for the license plate — RFID chipping your car?

Big Brother B&WA Fornicalia government insider brought this to my attention, with some salient comments.  First, the confirmation that this is not a pie-in-the-sky idea.  From GCN.com (and please read the entire story):

California pilots electronic license plates — will other states follow?

California is piloting electronic license plates to improve efficiency,  lower the cost of DMV vehicle registration services and eliminate the need for vehicle owners, particularly fleet owners, to receive physical registration tags by mail, according to a bill analysis by California’s Senate Rules Committee. 

The Assembly Appropriations Committee said it will cost less than $50,000 for the DMV to administer the pilot program and complete the evaluation report. However, the plates most likely will come at a cost for drivers, said David Findlay of Compliance Innovations,  an electronic license plate manufacturer. Findlay told Time magazine the plates could cost around $100, at least five times the price of a typical license plate fee.

The electronic plates would serve as alternatives to California’s traditional metal license plate, plastic-coated registration stickers and paper registration cards. California’s DMV annually registers approximately 26 million vehicles and performs over 10 million renewals.

Senate Bill 806, signed by California Gov. Jerry Brown in early October, calls for the pilot to be established by Jan. 1, 2017. The pilot will be limited to no more than 0.5 percent of registered vehicles and vehicle owners who have voluntarily chosen to participate.

And just what would an “electronic license plate” consist of?  I can only think of one thing: an RFID chip/tag.

RFID Railroad TagThe bulk use of RFID chips began in the railroad industry, with one purpose: to track the locations of railroad cars.

While the bill does not specifically state which devices will be tested, the bill analysis did mention a provider, Smart Plate Mobile, which was incorporated in 2009 and is based in San Francisco, as being “the company most interested in participating in such a pilot project.” Smart Plate Mobile’s plates are computer screens that would take on the size and appearance of a standard California license plate. Since the plates can receive wireless updates from a central server, they could also display additional messages such as “stolen” or “expired.”

Perfect.  Now the state would mandate that you possess a plate which displays EXPIRED if you happen to be either late with fees, or DMV (and this occurs frequently in Fornicalia) screws up your paperwork.

But not just STOLEN or EXPIRED — how about a venue for selling advertisements and making Fornicalia some more revenue, to be given away to more parasites?

A similar bill proposed in California in 2010 would have allowed advertisements to scroll on the screen if a car was stopped for more than three seconds, Ars reported. The ads were envisioned as an additional revenue source for the DMV. The current bill does not include provisions for advertising, the Sacramento Bee reported.

Now your vehicle would be a rolling billboard, and you would have NO CHOICE but to comply.

And just as the NSA has LIED and said it is not tracking your e-mails and cell phones, the state of Fornicalia SWEARS it would not track your vehicle’s movements.  Trust them.

Responding to concerns about tracking expressed by the Electronic Frontier Foundation, an amendment was added to California’s bill to limit the data exchanged “to that data necessary to display evidence of registration compliance. The department shall not receive or retain any information generated during the pilot program regarding the movement, location or use of a vehicle participating in the pilot program.”

So read this:

Still, Lee Tien, an attorney at Electronic Frontier Foundation, notes that while the DMV will not be receiving location information in the pilot, the company providing the plates would, and it would control what is on the plates, reported the Capitol Hill Daily.

And of course, if it’s digital, just like all your private information in ObamaKare, it can be hacked.

RFID chips are the wave of the future, in order to track and force compliance with whatever illegal and freedom-killing government mandate can be conjured.  I already wrote about RFID chips here:

This is a perfect way to track your vehicle, micromanage your life, know where you and your car are all the time, read your location, know your speed at all times, know your rate of acceleration, your rate of deceleration, the weight transfer involved in taking corners, and monitor your every possible vehicle code violation.

You could find yourself instantaneously fined by the government for an infraction and then, in that same instant, have your insurance rates raised or your policy canceled.

Paranoid, am I?

No, just utilizing what I call the Logical Extension.  When has government been able to do a thing, and not done it?  Because, after all, the government has proven itself trustworthy time and time again.

If for no other reason than “for the children.”

Welcome, Big Brother.

BZ

P.S.
And if it’s coming to Fornicalia, you can be assured that “Progressives” in your state are conjuring up the same thing.
