What They Want You to Think
It truly is an art form, and technically, it’s not lying. It’s saying things that lead you to think something else, and the progressive movement is proficient at it. It’s one of the most effective ways to make socialist and communist ideology mainstream thought, and it’s happening right before our eyes.
Yesterday, on CNN’s State of the Union, Dr. Fauci said (referring to the spread of covid-19), “This is not driven by immigrants.”
There aren’t truer words to describe the recent spread of the disease, and here’s why:
The people who are coming over our southern border in droves carry all sorts of diseases, including serious illnesses that we as Americans have long since mitigated. Diseases such as cholera, diphtheria, infectious tuberculosis, plague, smallpox, yellow fever, viral hemorrhagic fevers, severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), and influenza caused by novel or reemergent influenza viruses, just to name a few. Then, there’s the high number of individuals infected with covid-19 and its variants.
Didn’t Dr. Fauci say that these people are not spreading covid in the U.S.?
No! He didn’t.
Dr. (?’able) Fauci said that immigrants are not the cause. The people invading our southern border are illegal immigrants. There’s a big difference.
The purpose of this wordplay that progressives employ with adroit reflex is twofold. First, it’s to get you to think what they didn’t say, is what they said, or vice versa. Second (and just as insidious), is to get you accustomed to language shift. The case in point here, referring to illegal aliens invading America at this very moment, as immigrants.
