Orwellian Escalation

Comment @ Orient Lodge Post,
Deconstructing the Region 10 Board of Education Press Release

Welcome to Spin Alley...

First of all, kudos on an incisive deconstruction of this document.

Having read Judge Kravitz's 34-page decision in its entirety, it surprised me that the Chairperson for the district misconstrued the judge's choice to take an arms-length approach as to the nature of Ms. Doninger's punishment. Even more egregious was that she made this assertion more than once.

But when I stepped back, I saw nothing but an undignified attempt by another public official in Region 10 to obfuscate. Much akin to the Bush Administration, perhaps Ms. Duffy will now take the approach of repeating her misleading talking points ad nauseam, with the intent of somehow turning the lie into the truth.

The Orwellian escalation Ms. Duffy has chosen to embrace should be a clarion call to all who respect the sanctity of our Constitution to increase their efforts on behalf of Avery. After all, it's always the little transgressions and inveiglements of those with authoritarian aspirations that eventually lead to the Humanity's greatest calamities.
