Vail Daily letter: Get over it
February 12, 2017
An objective reading of George Orwell's novel "Nineteen Eighty-Four" demonstrates that it does not even remotely describe the current state of political affairs in America, despite the lurid efforts of the left to appropriate the novel to their own ends.
"Nineteen Eighty-Four" describes a left-wing totalitarian state that has ground down all avenues of dissent, the belief and practice of religion and human emotions such as love.
The last time I looked, dissent, religion and human emotions were alive and well, particularly the left's often violent dissent.
As to Ms. Noble's reference (Valley Voices, Friday's Vail Daily) to the popular vote, that point has become tiresome, though the left keeps trotting it out.
Donald Trump won the election. Donald Trump is not Big Brother.
It's way past time for Ms. Noble and her ilk to get over it.
