Woke? The politically correct social justice/collectivist/socialist/communist radicals, calling themselves “woke,” do not know or care a wit if they intrude on the lives of others. They preach that they care; it is a routine part of their rhetoric of political correctness. They don’t believe in your freedom of speech, only theirs. They don’t believe in innocence until proven guilty, unless one of theirs is on trial.
They are a relatively small group of people.
Their goal is an ideal off in the future, a fantasy utopia, which not even they may criticize or seriously examine without being thrown under the bus by their comrades. They disavow and destroy or ignore the history of previous attempts to achieve their ideal, they move on, they go forward, but they never look back and they never reach their moving target utopia. They cannot address questions of fact and history because doing so destroys their mindset/mental image. They truly believe that they have the best answer, the ideal, utopia, and that it is better than anything any other group has to offer, and therefore that requires them to do anything necessary to reach their goal, even killing an entire generation.
I believe Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn said that 90% of his communist comrades had been killed by his communist comrades, including the murders of almost the entire officer corps of the communist military before WWII, which then resulted in poor defenses of Russia against Hitler’s troops and millions of unnecessary Russian dead. Solzhenitsyn was a highly experienced and rewarded Bolshevik “Red Army” communist officer who dared to criticize Stalin’s policies. He criticized the failures of communist Soviet Union, was exiled to Stalin’s gulags in Siberia, but never gave up on communism.
Who are these “woke” people today? “So what does this group look like? Compared with the rest of the (nationally representative) polling sample, progressive activists are much more likely to be rich, highly educated—and white. They are nearly twice as likely as the average to make more than $100,000 a year. They are nearly three times as likely to have a postgraduate degree. And while 12 percent of the overall sample in the study is African American, only 3 percent of progressive activists are. With the exception of the small tribe of devoted conservatives, progressive activists are the most racially homogeneous group in the country.” (Reference at link below.)
Americans should not expect today’s social justice warriors to become rational, or to reform, or to give up their fantasy. On the contrary, they will become more violent. We are seeing that increasing violence now with Hillary (“you cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about”) Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Michael Moore, Erik (“When they go low, we kick em. That’s what this new Democratic Party is about”) Holder, Ellison, Weinstein, and other media, academic, Hollywood and sports personalities.
Politically correct ‘woke’ social justice warriors take no prisoners; they create victims, piles of them. Democrats are becoming increasingly more violent, primarily due to the examples set by their leaders; they are calling for mob rule like the Ferguson riots in 2014. Don’t take their bait. Vote.
“Members have been attacked, shot, had home addresses (where their families live) posted online, been accosted during family dinners, and received every kind of death threat. It’s alarming to hear media minimize that as just “people who are upset.” ~ Senator Orrin Hatch, October 10, 2018 @senorrinhatch
Referring to the Washington Post: “Always interesting to see friends in the media focus on Republican reaction— not on a group overrunning police barricades to try and break down the doors of the Supreme Court, doxxing Senators, trying to storm a hearing, and physically blocking meetings.” ~ Senator Orrin Hatch, October 9, 2018 @senorrinhatch
“Those who want to take our money and gain power over us have discovered the magic formula: Get us envious or angry at others and we will surrender, in installments, not only our money but our freedom.” ~ Thomas Sowell.
