Seventy-five years have passed since George Orwell observed that, when challenged by uncomfortable facts, political advocates often descend into “euphemism, question-begging and sheer cloudy vagueness.”
When asked about the rising crime rate, President Joe Biden’s (D) press secretary, Jen Psaki, immediately changed the subject. “I would say certainly there is a guns problem,” Psaki said. “And that’s something the president would say.”
Faced with polls showing that support for stricter gun control is lower than it has been in years and a Congress that has, thus far, rejected the more radical among his ideas, President Biden has decided to fall back on lies.
