Some much needed attribution for that Orwell meme!

I ran the below meme on this blog not to long ago, and also on Facebook, where I found it.  It quickly became the most popular thing I’d ever shared, with more than 1,600 “likes” and more than 400 “shares” on social media.

Well, we have discovered it author — comedian Keith Lowell Jensen.  Mr. Jensen sent me a nice note this morning explaining that it originates with his comedy act.  He first tweeted it in 2013:

It was also featured in his 2014 comedy special, “Atheist Christmas.”

Since so many people enjoyed that quote, it would be nice if Mr. Jensen got the proper credit.  And if you’d like to read more from him, you can follow him at his Twitter account above.
