"The Revolution will be complete when the language is perfect"

PBS propounded its Orwellian Newspeak on a recent episode of History Detectives , where it described Soviet backed Marxists in the Spanish Civil War as "liberals" and German Nazi backed fascists as "conservatives". Why can't PBS be linguistically honest?

& why does it take an American (non-Communist) Republican to defend FDR? PBS criticized Roosevelt for remaining neutral in this totalitarian show-down and posed a logical fallacy false choice between Stalin and Hitler, the Mutt and Jeff of mustachioed mass murdering psycho dictators.
