A group of liberals are set to screen George Orwell’s “1984” all around the world in protest of President Donald Trump.
“1984” is based on a book about a socialist society that is ripe with government spying. Somehow, liberals believe this is Trump’s America, even though they have nothing to do with each other.

The Huffington Post reports:
Dozens of independent movie theaters nationwide are preparing to screen a film adaptation of George Orwell’s classic dystopian novel 1984 to protest President Donald Trump’s proposed plan to eliminate humanities agencies such as the National Endowment for the Arts.
Screenings of the 1980s film, which features the late John Hurt, will take place in more than 85 theaters across 34 states on April 4. The date marks the first time the story’s protagonist, Winston Smith, writes in his diary ― a major act of resistance against Big Brother, the figurehead of an authoritarian state that uses perpetual war, mass surveillance and censorship to control its people.
If this is truly what liberals believe, they are in for a rough time when they realize that their ability to show the film shows they have freedom of speech, something they wouldn’t have in the society featured in the film.
