Erasing Southern History: An Apt Quote from the Novel "1984"

In 1949, George Orwell published his famous novel predicting our Fascist future. The novel was titled Nineteen-Eighty Four (often referred to as simply 1984). Some of the quotes from that novel really remind me of the dark period through which we are now passing, where basic reality is rigorously denied and derided, and all human thought strictly pressured to conform to the state's official positions.  The quote below seems particularly real to Confederate descendants, particularly in light of the extreme cultural cleansing and historical revisionism now going on there.

Winston Smith to Julia:

Already we know almost literally nothing about the Revolution and the years before the Revolution. Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book has been rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street and building has been renamed, and every date has been altered. And that process is continuing day-by-day and minute-by-minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.

The upside down values of the fictitious Fascist government in 1984 are expressed in its daily slogan, while preparing the masses for Hate Week:

I was just re-reading 1984 this morning and realized the libturds sudden decision to declare war on Southerners is like when Oceania switches alliances from Eurasia to Eastasia and Winston has to destroy all pro-Eastasia propaganda in memory holes.

Of course the US government is largely responsible for the misery of blacks since it's their policies that keep them poor and in prison in overwhelming numbers, but it uses propaganda (aka the media) to redirect their anger towards their neighbors. They'll probably do the same with the eventual outrage of Southern whites and direct it against a convenient target (blacks) to keep the cycle going.

It is curious,isn't it? The more government we have, the more everyone hates each other. Blacks continue to be the shock troops for the far left, but they are only cannon fodder, as they were in the Civil War. The sheeple, the great mass of white people and every other flavor, don't have a clue as to what is going on and couldn't care less.
