It's curious that the far right has taken to quoting their ideological opposite, showing, as usual, they rarely understand what they read.
Gingrich made a total ass of himself demonstrating how he completely misunderstands Orwell and '1984' in attempt to discredit universal healthcare.
So that there is no doubt about Orwell's political leanings:
"And the only regime which, in the long run, will dare to permit freedom of speech is a Socialist regime."
"One has got to be actively a Socialist, not merely sympathetic to Socialism, or one plays into the hands of our always-active enemies."
