The Things Republicans Do!

Like robots, they mouth the same old lies, jargon and scams they have always breaks for the richest segment, massive increases in "defense" spending (arms sales), starting unprovoked wars on sovereign nations......yes, Republicans!

They also want to kill ("death penalty for") doctors who perform abortion and call themselves "pro-life!" So, anyone
who has read Orwell can see that they engage strictly in Newspeak--that is, all is backward and rigged. They move and vote and watch tv and shit like the lemmings they are.

With pardon please (to the lemmings) for the comparison, in office the Republicans do the opposite often of what they said they were going to do (like some Democrats!). And their mouthpiece/bullypulpit, "Fox News" is a wretched lie and propaganda fear machine. Lemmings became notorious in popular culture because of a myth that they commit mass suicide when they migrate. Driven by strong biological urges, some species of lemmings may migrate in large groups when population density becomes too great. Lemmings can swim and may choose to cross a body of water in search of a new habitat. In such cases, many may drown if the body of water is so wide as to stretch their physical capability to the limit. This fact combined with the unexplained fluctuations in the population of Norwegian lemmings gave rise to the development of the myth. [8]

The myth of lemming "mass suicide" is long-standing and has been popularized by a number of factors. In 1955, Disney Studioillustrator Carl Barks drew an Uncle Scrooge adventure comic with the title "The Lemming with the Locket". This comic, which was inspired by a 1954 American Mercury article, showed massive numbers of lemmings jumping over Norwegian cliffs.[9][10] Even more influential was the 1958 Disney film White Wilderness, which won an Academy Award for Documentary Feature, in which staged footage was shown with lemmings jumping into sure death after faked scenes of mass migration.[11] A Canadian Broadcasting Corporation documentary, Cruel Camera, found that the lemmings used for White Wilderness were flown from Hudson Bay to Calgary, Alberta, Canada, where they did not jump off the cliff, but in fact were launched off the cliff using a turntable.[12]

Real nice there Walt....
