Certainly questioning Napoleon's edict can have harsh consequences. DEspite Squealers twisted lies, Boxer argues,
"I do not believe that," he said. "Snowball fought bravely at the Battle
of the Cowshed. I saw him myself. Did we not give him 'Animal Hero, first
Class,' immediately afterwards?"
Squealer runs through various lies but Boxer persists. Finally Squealer takes on a rather threatening tone,
"Our Leader, Comrade Napoleon," announced Squealer, speaking very slowly
and firmly, "has stated categorically--categorically, comrade--that
Snowball was Jones's agent from the very beginning--yes, and from long
before the Rebellion was ever thought of."
