Orwell’s 1984 was published 70 years ago today. To celebrate, here is a doublespeak sample:

[ID: text is the following] . Steve Johnson — long-time resident of an El Sobrante, Calif. neighborhood claimed that the display is for aesthetic purposes, and was never intended to be offensive. “It doesn’t represent anything,” Johnson told NBC Bay Area. “That represents me not having to pull weeds over in that part of my yard; that’s what it represents to me. What does it represent to you?” ….. Well, Steve, since you asked, to me or means you’re a white supremacist, racist, nazi who gaslights his neighbors, news outlets, and the world. It means, to me, that you’re a fucking waste of oxygen, Steve. I hope your ambiguous symbol crushes you to death slowly.
