In George Orwell’s novel 1984 the Ministry of Truth would alter or eliminate inconvenient and embarrassing records as part of an attempt to give the impression that something never happened. The Ministry would later recreate history to match often-changing state propaganda. Today’s efforts at properly sprucing up the past be called testaments to political correctness. In order for the memory hole to work the people have to be unaware of the process of revisionism.
November 5, 2009 Army psychiatrist Major Nidal Malik Hasan, while yelling “Allahu Akbar,” performed brutal acts of Islamic terrorism, killing 13 and wounding 32 Americans at Fort Hood in Texas. It is the worst mass shooting ever to occur on a military installation. To minimize the Muslim influence behind the killings, OUR Ministry of Truth ordered the United States Department of Defense and federal law enforcement agencies to forget the terrorist connection by declaring Hasan’s murderous, Islamic treachery an act of workplace violence.
According to the Occupational Safety & Health Administration, “Workplace violence is any act or threat of physical violence, harassment, intimidation, or other threatening disruptive behavior that occurs at the work site. It ranges from threats and verbal abuse to physical assaults and even homicide.” Yelling “Allahu Akbar” while shooting at unarmed soldiers and their families at a Readiness process center by a Soldier of Allah is hardly work related. (1) By declaring Hasan’s Jihadist murders acts of workplace violence, Big Brother Barack has denied financial and medical benefits families of the dead and wounded would have received had they been properly awarded the Purple Heart. The Ministry added insult to injury by ignoring the truth about Hasan. (2) And incredibly, the Obama Regime’s disgusting historical rewrite would have succeeded were it not for the internet and cable news.
In an effort to forever put the Islamic murders at Fort Hood down the memory hole, the Army tore down Building 42003, the site at which a real domestic terrorist killed Americans on American soil. Instead of preserving the building as has been done in previous wars the Ministry of Truth hopes that, by its actions, the peons will finally forget the incident. As a final insult by the Ministry, the Army post was directed to claim it had privately consulted victims and family members concerning what should be done with the site. Like so many other claims by the Obama Regime, it was a lie. (3)
