If a general were to assemble a coalition of the “woke” of American society–
illegal undocumented immigrants, grievance hustlers, tech billionaires, lazy big-media pundits, leftist college profs and bureaucrats, ”the world is ending in 12 years” climate change chicken littles, gun control fanatics, GBTQ+ propagandists, “shout your abortion” feminists–his biggest problem would not be shooting at the enemy, it would be keeping this “coalition of the woke” from shooting each other in endless battles over Who Is More Intersectional Than Thou. The solution appears to be demonizing mutual hate objects or groups.
The “general” in this case might be the Democrat party; the mutual hate objects/groups are white, “cisgender”, mostly male and the women who like them, heterosexual, mostly Christian, American citizens who care about border protection, including immigrants who are here legally. I don’t think even mutual hate objects will prevent the “coalition of the woke” from turning into a circular firing squad though. 1. There really isn’t a coalition, it’s just a bunch of separate constituencies with their own agendas that the 20+ democrat candidates are all trying to appeal to and appease. 2. The caste system rules the intersectionality sweepstakes. Whichever group—individuals don’t count, even if they existed—can accumulate the most oppression points goes to the top, even if they have to reinvent history to score those points. That oppressed prof I mentioned in my last post, Mehta, claims, about Southern Asia: “Consider the subcontinent. For five thousand years we had been one people, ruled undivided from the borders of Persia to China by emperors from Ashoka to Akbar…. Then the British came and ruled us for two hundred years by pitting us against each other so that we couldn’t be pitted against them.” Oh, I see, the British were responsible for the mind-bogglingly elaborate caste system of petty apartheid that is India. 3. These “woke” groups are competing for slices of pies that are finite: votes, clickthroughs and reparations. In their quest, they will, like crabs, keep pulling down whichever gets to the top.
Their common hate objects are tuning out their hysterical rhetoric and growing in contempt for their stupid ideas. Wokeness is built on greed, lies, (attempted) theft, anger and hatred. They are a circular firing squad with no one in the center. Their claims are lies and their threats empty, like this one from immigrant Mehta’s book, This Land Is Our Land: An Immigrant’s Manifesto,“I claim the right to the United States, for myself and my children and my uncles and cousins, by manifest destiny…. It’s our country now.” In your (wet) dreams, asswipe!
