DoubleSpeak....What is it?

The term doublespeak was coined in the early 1950s. It is when a favorable sounding term is used to describe something which is in reality just the opposite of the term and very unfavorable . 

An example would be when abortion is called "a woman's right to choose" when in fact abortion has murdered millions of infant woman and taken away young women's right to life or to choose anything. It's a form of political spin.

Doublespeak is often incorrectly attributed to George Orwell and his 1949 dystopian novel Nineteen Eighty-Four. The term does not appear in that novel, although Orwell did coin newspeak, oldspeak, and doublethink, and his novel made fashionable composite nouns with speak as the second element, which were previously unknown in English. Doublespeak may be considered, in Orwell's lexicography, as the vocabulary of Newspeak, words "deliberately constructed for political purposes: words, that is to say, which not only had in every case a political implication, but were intended to impose a desirable mental attitude upon the person using them." The term double talk (with a similar meaning) dates back to at least 1936

Another example is the treasonous legislation that nullifies a majority of the US Constitution and then calling it "the patriot act" of all things. I am chocking on the deadly irony. Or then there is legislation some are trying to pass which would limit free speech of the press on TV and radio and they calling it "The Fairness Doctrine" when it is ironically inherently unfair.

How important is this? Double speak is at it's heart a lie. Jesus said, "The Truth will set you free." Our Freedom depends upon truth being spoken. Nations are enslaved with lies and set free with truth. As we are feed newspeak and doublespeak 24/7 by the owned media and move toward silencing talk radio and the internet blogs, we will be shackled with the chains of those who control the media with money. If in fact banking and multi-national corporations continue to control major media and all else is silenced, then we will be slaves on their plantation forever.

Confucius once said, “If language is not correct, then what is said is not what is meant; if what is said is not what is meant, then what must be done remains undone; if this remains undone, morals and art will deteriorate; if justice goes astray, the people will stand about in helpless confusion. Hence there must be no arbitrariness in what is said. This matters above everything.”

The Apostle Peter said of these kinds of people, "Promising them freedom, they themselves are slaves to depravity, for a person is a slave to whatever conquers him."

While promising freedom, modern socialistic police states are making politicians Lords and citizens surfs. They are slaves to depravity and a culture of lust and greed. They are slaves to debt and banking organizations. They are slaves to the state through oppressive taxes. They are slaves to the warmongers through a military draft. And if Obama gets his way, our 18 to 25 year olds will be slaves to liberal indoctrination through a civil service draft. They are slaves to ignorance by silencing decent with laws hindering free speech.  We are told we are free but do we really have free speech?  Are we free to do with our land what we wish? OR are we monitored, regulated, controlled, and taxed into submission to the will of the shadowy international banking interests that funded our leaders elections into office? Are we really free? Or has doublespeak enslaved us?

Right to choose = take away babies right to choose.
Patriot Act = Traitor Act
Fairness Doctrine = Unfairness Doctrine
War on Terror = War on American's Rights

Can you think of more examples?
