Within the book, the purpose of the Hate is said to satisfy the citizens' subdued feelings of angst and hatred from leading such a wretched, controlled existence. By re-directing these subconscious feelings away from the Oceanian government and toward external enemies (which likely do not even exist), the Party minimizes subversive thought and behavior. source
It's all about controlling the useful idiots. Problem is, it's not working. Considering how hard this administration is trying to gin up trouble, there really has been little response by way of riots. What's happening in a few locales is nothing more than business as usual.
Why exactly do we care? Because someday these powerful forces could be turned against you, if they haven't already.
For now, it's time to move on. I have a lawn to cut.
Jeffrey T. Brown does a masterful job of summing up the whole mess at American Thinker:
Hate Crimes Indeed
Now that a jury has considered the best evidence the State of Florida could offer against George Zimmerman, and that it did not prove that Zimmerman was either the aggressor or an intentional killer, the left has a problem. It invested what little credibility it had entirely in using George Zimmerman as a distraction from the horrific violence in black communities. The consequence, we were told before and have been told since, is that it is open season for non-blacks against blacks, and this case exemplifies how dangerous it is for blacks when they merely buy Skittles or wear a hoodie.
We are forever being told by the left about how awful this country is for anyone who is not white. Blacks are being gunned down in the streets by non-blacks. Except they're not. Muslims are being discriminated against wholesale, and are afraid to leave their homes. Except they're not. Gun owners are violent crazies bent on mass murder, except they're not. Christians are trying to force their religion on us. Except they're not. Tea Party members are racists and violent. I believe the Breitbart reward for evidence of the accusations of tea party racism remains unclaimed, even in this day of cell phone cameras and video.
At the root of these accusations is hatred by the left of its political and ideological enemies. They hate the lot of us. READ THE REST
