Twitter Newspeak Defines Woody Johnson’s Revolutionary Truth As Systemic Racism

Today I will not quote from the Bible. Instead, I’ll use the prophetic words of a celebrated and brilliant atheist to prove the danger of labeling New York Jets owner Woody Johnson a racist because he thinks black fatherhood is a “real challenge.”

The Fritz Pollard Alliance, the NFL racial diversity watchdog, issued a statement Wednesday stating the organization is “deeply troubled” by allegations that Johnson made insensitive remarks about race and gender while serving as U.S. ambassador to Britain. 

According to CNN, the State Department investigated complaints that Johnson commented on the attractiveness of women, said women worked harder and cheaper than men, wondered why black people celebrate Black History Month and opined that the absence of black fathers in the home was a real challenge. A source told CNN that an official who overheard the black father remark was “stunned” and immediately reported the incident.

I’m “deeply troubled” that a State Department official was “stunned” by Johnson’s comment on the importance of black fathers. I don’t know a single black person unconcerned with the general state of the black family. Seventy-five percent of black children are born to unwed mothers and raised in homes with an absent father.

Johnson’s “real challenge” statement is as controversial and insensitive as observing water’s ability to produce wetness.

But somehow Johnson is being analogized to disgraced and bigoted former Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling. ProFootballTalk founder and NBC Sunday Night Football contributor Mike Florio, who has never hired a black contributor to his website, raised the possibility of Johnson being forced out of the NFL.

It’s Orwellian. As in George Orwell, the famous atheist writer/pundit from the 1940s. Orwell wrote the dystopian novel 1984 and popularized phrases such as thought police, thoughtcrime, Big Brother and Newspeak.

In the book 1984, Newspeak is the language invented by the totalitarian government to get people to embrace English Socialism. Newspeak reduced complete thoughts to catchphrases. It dumbed down communication. Newspeak changed the way we referred to political organizations. For example, the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union became Politburo. 

The goal of the language was to inhibit freedom of thought, expression and identity.

Twitter is modern-day Newspeak. “Systemic racism” has been turned into a catchphrase that news organizations dependent on Newspeak/Twitter can use to define any communication or action that might make a minority group uncomfortable. 

“If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.” — George Orwell

By demonizing the truth and glorifying lies, the mainstream media intentionally deny black people liberty. The media limit free thought and expression. The media act as the enemy of black people. 

It’s racist to regard 75 percent of black pregnancies ending in children being raised without a father in the home as a real challenge. But it’s righteous to regard less than .0001 of police encounters ending in murder as proof of systemic racism.

“Power is in tearing down human minds and putting them together again in new shapes of your own choosing.” — George Orwell

Our minds are being deconstructed by Newspeak/Twitter. We’re being programmed to desperately fight to avenge the lives of a dozen ex-cons who resisted arrest while ignoring thousands of lives taken annually by street violence, hundreds of thousands taken annually by abortion and millions of lives compromised annually by parental neglect. 

Woody Johnson is the racist? What does that make the architects of modern Newspeak? What does that make the media manipulators toying daily with the emotions of black people? What does that make the New York Times?

“Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.” — George Orwell

The New York Times 1619 Project that reduces America’s entire narrative arc to slavery is an Orwellian rewriting of history. Every organized and unorganized civilization on the planet has history with human slavery. And every racial group has been a slave and enslaver. But we’re supposed to believe America is the lone country defined by that history.

“The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history.” — George Orwell

Black people, we’re being set up and used. We’re pawns in a global political game. The attack on Woody Johnson is really an attack on Donald Trump. Johnson’s real crime was allegedly asking a British official about the possibility of The British Open Golf Championship being played at Trump’s Turnberry golf resort in Scotland. 

Johnson is a Trump supporter, and Newspeak/Twitter has reduced Trump support to “systemic racism.”  Anti-black racism is now just a political ploy used by white liberals to grab political power. It’s the Democratic Northern Strategy. 

Trust me, the purple-haired white liberals holding up Black Lives Matter signs and rioting in Portland and Seattle don’t give a f–k about black people. Those aren’t George Floyd’s friends or family members. Those are people chasing power they were denied in junior high and high school. Only a fool would think they’re going to share their new-won power.

“We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it.” — George Orwell

Should Roger Goodell and the NFL take action against Woody Johnson, banish him from their ranks, punish him for insensitivity? Hell no. And especially not for racism.  Johnson’s concern about black fatherhood makes me view him as a revolutionary ally more than a foe.

“In a time of deceit telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” — George Orwell

  1. This might be your best work yet Jason. It’s insane how the radical left, which has had its tendrils in the school system for decades and made 1984 and Animal Farm required rrading in many schools, are aping the socialist villains in those books. And they don’t seem to notice or if they do, they don’t care.

    People think something being like ‘1984’ is overt and obvious repression and censorship. It’s not. It’s using algorithms to persuade public opinion. It’s banning phrases, organizations, ideologies, religions and even people under the guise of ‘safety’. It creates ‘unsafe environments’ to point out the problems in black culture and how voting Democrat for decades has done nothing for a single black man or woman who doesn’t blindly follow The Cause (handed to them by white Marxists, of course.)

  2. Sad Times we live in. Jason thanks for your input. I keep wondering when Enough will be Enough, but that does not appear to be happening any time soon. Proud to be part of Outkick and to know you are making a difference for many of us!

  3. Jason, you always challenge us to think! Thank you. Like many others, I read Orwell’s 1984 years ago, but it is truly chilling to read those excerpts now (the excerpts you referenced). The radical left has our country so confused that we think it is morally just to support the tearing down of Portland by white Marxists simply because they spray paint BML on federal buildings. And like you said, they have our country so confused that we “desperately fight to avenge lives of a few dozen ex-cons” as opposed to caring about lives of murdered children. They have us so confused that an NFL owner cannot voice the importance of black fatherhood. Billionaire white liberal elitists have manipulated our entire country……It is getting scary how brainwashed our country has become……Like many other readers here on OutKick, every day I try to convince more people to sign up for OutKick. As supporters of OutKick and our country, we cannot remain silent. We have to stand up for our country and support TRUTH.

  4. Hey Jason,
    Modern day Marxists certainly have their choice of manifestos going all the way back to the architects, but “1984” is their perfect perversion of George Orwell’s warnings to Post WWII society.
    The original northern strategy was ironically perverted and reversed 100 years later by the southern Dems of the 1960s to instill a certain mindset and develop a permanent voting bloc.
    The new northern strategy you reference, amazingly successful so far, is enveloping like an anaconda; slowly surrounding and squeezing free thinkers until they can be crushed by the media thought police. We’re all very lucky that so many are willing and determined to speak out. Thank you as always!

    PS – Turnberry hasn’t hosted The Open Championship since 2009, and is not included in the rotation through 2026. The whole tempest in a teapot was started by a former State Dept. exec. in charge of Hillary’s travels when she was Sec. of State and who later became acting ambassador in 2016 before the election. But he had no agenda . And the media employ the “shiny objects” ruse with Trump and Turnberry so Johnson could never be viewed as a revolutionary ally, as you suggest.

  5. “…the purple-haired white liberals holding up Black Lives Matter signs and rioting in Portland and Seattle don’t give a f–k about black people. Those aren’t George Floyd’s friends or family members. Those are people chasing power they were denied in junior high and high school.”

    Utter perfection my friend, and so, so true.

  6. The strength of capitalism is that it’s an incentive structure that rewards innovation and hard work.
    Socialism fails because it kills and destroys the human spirit — our natural desire to achieve and prosper.

    The Capitalist U.S. has the world’s strongest economy by far. Prosperity is possible for everyone. Socialist Cuba and Venezuela are failed economies where few people proper and most are desperate.

  7. Jason dropping truth bombs again! 2020 is the new 1984, but now it’s not a work of fiction. Everyone needs to pass this article on to friends, family and some leftists you know. Perhaps it will wake some folks up?

    Thank you Jason Whitlock

  8. Very well-written thought piece. I watch Whitlock whenever he is promoted on a channel. Great thought poet. Keep up the amazing writing on things people are afraid to challenge out loud. We need more voices like Jason and Clay.

  9. Thinking about all the “generational wealth” that gets discussed in Sports America. And I’m right there with everybody else as a big fan. But if we would think about all the Generational Wisdom that exists in our communities…the great thinkers, the philosophers, the elders AND the young intellects of the future…Marxism could be snuffed out as a snake oil sham if only peeps had the ears to hear. Very sad.

  10. New VIP member here and Jason is the reason I signed up. I’ve enjoyed reading and listening to his thoughts on society and sports for years now. Maybe that old adage about judging a man’s intelligence on how often he agrees with you? 🙂

    I also signed up after reading the comment section. It’s amazing (but not surprising) on how intelligent and respectful the discourse is when there’s not thousands of trolls just riling everyone up with ignorant comments.

  11. I cannot wait for the Jason Whitlock podcast, people are crying out for someone who sees the truth -and tells it like it is, with no misdirection and no sugarcoating.
    Even millennials and Gen-Z.

  12. I read 1984 in the sixties when I was in high school. The book has a depressing ending. I thought that’s an interesting concept but that it could never happen here. I was sure wrong. I just wonder if this will end in real violence or capitulation.

  13. Jason Whitlock…as I read these very amazing and insightful columns I cannot help but think what a waste of talent it was discussing/arguing about whether or not Dak is worth $40mm. I cannot wait to read the next column and enjoy rereading past insightful commentary. You are exactly where you should be…well done.

  14. Jason … incredible. I can proudly say you’ve been my favorite sports journalist since I was 10 years old living in Lenexa, KS in 1995. I am glad I had such good taste as a kid. Keep it up, my man. Truer words have never been spoken. No one calls you out in the media, or challenges your work … because they can’t. And, if they bring attention to it, they might lose their agenda, because it is unimpeachable work.

  15. Fatherless children is an idea that is openly supported by the “progressive left”. It is the first step to creating an environment in which we are all infantilized and in need of a benevolent central government to manage our lives. The plight of those black kids is one that is envisioned for the entire populace. While many of these kids will work hard and achieve success, far more will wind up being “cared for” by the state in one way or another. It’s exactly what they hope to manifest for us all.
