2021 like 1984 (Esto me recuerda a Cuba)

For many of us, 1984 is the year that President Reagan came within 3,700  votes in Minnesota of winning 50 states.  Then there is the other 1984, the famous book about the future.

As a boy in Castro’s Cuba, I remember a dinner table conversation with my parents and my dad’s uncle who was a judge and professor at the Law School. They were talking about rewriting history and how people were being “erased” from Cuban history books. Years later, I learned that my uncle advised my parents to leave the country for the sake of the children.

My father passed away 5 years ago. Wonder what he would say about the “cancel culture” or these attacks on anyone who worked for President Trump. My guess is that my late father would say “not again, por favor.” A few days ago, I spoke with my mother and she said something similar about seeing this movie before.

In this context of the cancel culture, is it any surprise that “1984” is back in the best seller list? Maybe it’s a coincidence or maybe some Americans are reading this from the book:   

“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.”

We will survive this madness.  The Democrats are clearly overreaching, as a stunning Rasmussen poll about President Trump (49% approval) showed yesterday.   

Fasten your seat belts and stand up to the thugs because what they really fear is that the 74 million who voted for President Trump will return for sure in 2022.
