Deciphering Orwellian Newspeak

The following correspondence originally took place upon the Facebook wall of an acquaintance, after she shared a captioned photo from here...

Tara M.:

Arizona State lawmakers approved legislation Wednesday that encourages more killing of Mexican gray wolves despite their listing under federal law as endangered. PLEASE contact Governor Jan Brewer and urge her to veto SB1211, HB2699, SCR1006, and any other anti-wolf bills that come to her desk. According to the Governor’s office, they have received loads of call thus far. So please add your voice and make a call for the lobo!
