You know what I hate?

Clichés.

Unfortunately, since the rise of the religion of politics, things that were once niche and even obscure have now become common and cliché.

For instance, referencing ANYTHING in George Orwell’s 1984 has become INCREDIBLY cliché – but even though both sides of the aisle are claiming to be the side dead set against the rise of a real-world Big Brother, only one can be right here.

So which one is it?

Well, if you look at the actual events of today and who is behind them, the answer is clear as Waterford crystal.

Right now, the Left is the ONLY political side that is literally taking a page out of the Thought Police handbook by literally trying to change history and reshape reality.

Remember the unforgettable line from the book?

“Who controls the past controls the future: who controls the present controls the past.”

Well, right now, the Left is trying to control the past.

The 1619 Project tries to claim that America was FOUNDED on slavery…

The mobs tearing down statues (regardless of whether that historical figure supported slavery or not) erase our nation’s founders…

The story of “The Party Switch” claims that the Democrats and Republicans “switched” their stances on racism…

And even now Joe Biden is trying to take credit for the development/release of the COVID vaccine…

By these actions ALONE, the Left is the ONLY political side trying to change the history of America to fit their present-day narrative.

But it gets worse…

Not only are they trying to change the past, but they’re also trying to change the definition of the words we use to communicate.

The Left’s Quest To Change Our World Through Language

Mothers aren’t mothers anymore…they’re “birthing people.”

Illegal aliens are neither illegal nor aliens anymore…they’re “undocumented citizens.”

And while we all know that the definition of “racism” is the “belief that race is a fundamental determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race,” it doesn’t count when it’s directed against White people.

And don’t even get me started on the whole transgender “pick-your-pronouns” thing.

In many places, those have become fighting words, and I just don’t care enough to get into it.

However, that doesn’t take away from the fact that words MATTER—and even more than that, their agreed-upon definitions matter.

Words are nothing but symbols for things that we as a society have agreed to define.

A chair is a chair because we all agreed that the sound of the word “chair” should represent the object you’re sitting on.

A car a car.

An arm is an arm.

However, the Left is trying to change what these symbols mean—and they’re creating chaos in the process.

I say all of this to bring you to the reason for this article: a plus-sized icon has revealed her latest medical diagnosis to the world…and it’s not what you’d expect it to be.

Don’t Believe Your Eyes

In a tweet last week, Tess Holliday, one of the world’s most famous plus-sized activists and models, wrote that she has been struggling with anorexia and is in recovery.

I’ll let you process that for a moment…

For reference, this is Tess Holliday…

Now reconcile this image with the announcement that she is dealing with/recovering from anorexia.

In her tweet, Holliday said, “I’m anorexic & in recovery. I’m not ashamed to say it out loud anymore. I’m the result of a culture that celebrates thinness & equates that to worth, but I get to write my own narrative now. I’m finally able to care for a body that I’ve punished my entire life & I am finally free.”

Now, if you’re scratching your head and wondering how this woman could be considered anorexic or diagnosed with anorexia, you’re not alone, and Holliday was flooded with questions from like-minded people.

So she tweeted again, “Not the ‘but your fat how are you anorexic’ comments. Y’all don’t know how science & body works huh. My technical diagnosis is anorexia nervosa & yes, I’m still not ashamed. I’m too damn happy for y’all to even come close to dimming my shine.”

Now, I may not be a psychiatrist or a medical doctor…

But I do know how anorexic people look and act, and she doesn’t fit the bill (no pun intended).

Apparently, we’re not supposed to pay attention to the facts and just ignore them, right?

That’s what Tess wants us to do…

But this is just more of the Left literally trying to change language and reshape how words are defined – because if they don’t, there is NO way any rational human can accept their narrative. None.

If Holliday wants to love her body at here size, more power to her! I respect and applaud anybody who can accept who they are…as long as they’re telling themselves the TRUTH.

I don’t know if Holliday is telling herself the truth or not…

But what I do know is that if she is, she’s only telling HER truth, not THE truth.

Words matter…

Definitions matter.

We can’t let people arbitrarily change things to suit their narrative…

Because soon, what will be considered “free” will change too. There’s only ONE definition of true liberty…and we’re not changing that for ANYBODY.
