LOL: Hillary Clinton says ‘1984’ is about trusting government leaders, the press

Hillary Clinton’s book tour for “What Happened” continues, and it is providing a treasure trove of evidence that the former Secretary of State is horribly out of touch and deranged. In recent days, she has claimed she is an honest person, has blamed the news media for being against her and has said she lost because of “millions of white people.”

Well, her latest gaffe is quite fascinating.

In her book, she writes that Georg Orwell’s “1984” is all about trusting authority. How she came to that rationale is befuddling, but it suggests once again that she should not be someone in control of anything.

Here is what she penned (emphasis ours):

“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.”

Oy vey.

Orwell’s classic is quite the opposite: distrusting authority.

Has Clinton even read “1984”? Doubtful. Just like Antifa and its supporters, who say Orwell would have been a member of Antifa, a group that shuts down free speech, attacks seniors in wheelchairs and peppersprays women.

  1. Hillary Clinton continues to prove that she would be dangerous with the nuclear codes.

    Was her brain on drugs when she made the “1984” comparison, or is she always that stupid?

    Based upon other similar statements she has made in the past, I would say that she’s always that stupid. It’s highly unlikely that her brain is always on such powerful hallucinogenic drugs.
