Sales Of George Orwell's 1984 Soar Thanks To 'Alternative Facts'

| Filed under: PolitikDonald TrumpBookz

KellyAnne Conway inspires soaring sales of 1984.

Yes, this entire Trump presidency so far has felt deeply Orwellian!

So it's no surprise that sales of George Orwell's dystopian masterpiece 1984 have soared after Kellyanne Conway used the phrase "alternative facts" to describe Press Secretary Sean Spicer's statement that Donald Trump's inauguration had "the largest audience ever."

The book has since reached the sixth spot on Amazon.

The "alternative facts" phrase echoes two key concepts in the novel, "newspeak" and "doublethink," that mislead, push a propagandistic agenda, and erase attempts at independent thought.

Newspeak is defined as "ambiguous euphemistic language used in political propaganda," and doublethink was described by Orwell as "the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one's mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them."

Kellyanne ConArtist can somehow make herself believe that Trump's historically LOW inauguration crowd numbers were the opposite, and that takes some awesome brain gymnastics!

We recommend getting the book if you don't have a copy yet — it's a chilling prophecy of what our world might soon become!
