I’m convinced that one day in the future, people will be studying how it was that the Left was so successful in manipulating language and redefining words. How was it that they were able to lie to the American people, while at the same time appearing not to lie, leaving them with no shred of doubt that they were being told the truth? Their ability to lie, and get away with doing so, is like a superhuman comic book power. They use this power with the same level of ease with which most of us breathe.

“Repeat a lie often enough and it becomes the truth” are words attributed to Joseph Goebbels, the minister of propaganda for the Nazi Party. These same words could just as easily have been spoken by Lenin, Stalin, Mao, or any of the Kims of North Korea. The official state-approved newspaper in the USSR was called Pravda, and it was the sole “authoritative” source for “news” and “information” — or propaganda — available to the average Soviet citizen.

“Pravda” translates to English as “truth.”

Telling the “truth” through lies is not a recent phenomenon, but it is something the Democrat Left has mastered to great effect by employing demagogic tactics that exploit people’s emotions and built-in biases.
