Orwell’s “1984” Comes to Life: Covington Catholic Teen Persecuted For Committing “FACECRIME”
We are living in George Orwell’s 1984.
Covington Catholic teen Nick Sandmann was persecuted for standing silently while a far left Native American activist beat a drum in his face.
Sandmann is a teenage boy who showed incredible restraint in the face of being harassed and heckled by black racists who called him a “cracker.”
After being heckled by black racists, a far left Native American activist approached Sandmann, got in his face and loudly beat a drum while chanting.
The left-wing media persecuted Sandmann for his “smirk” or as George Orwell called it “facecrime.”
In Part 1, Chapter 5 of George Orwell’s 1984, citizens are persecuted for having a politically incorrect expression on their face:
“The smallest thing could give you away. A nervous tic, an unconscious look of anxiety, a habit of muttering to yourself—anything that carried with it the suggestion of abnormality, of having something to hide. In any case, to wear an improper expression on your face (to look incredulous when a victory was announced, for example) was itself a punishable offence. There was even a word for it in Newspeak: facecrime, it was called.”
