Warped Woke Fantasies Becoming Our Reality
2 + 2 = 5?
“Sometimes, Winston, it is four fingers. Sometimes they are five. Sometimes they are three. Sometimes they are all of them at once.” — George Orwell’s, 1984.
For decades, liberal Democrats have increasingly relied on exaggeration, obfuscation and suppression of the truth in their effort to achieve their totalitarian aims. As their objectives expanded, the lies to support them grew increasingly outrageous, until, over time, the lies somehow morphed into a complex, destructive world view. In another time, all of this might have been humorous or even entertaining, but somewhere along the way, the left’s woke delusions invaded every facet of our society, and we now face the chilling proposition of living in a world defined by people suffering from severe psychosis.
Woke’s Most Absurd Delusions go Mainstream
As the woke movement grew bolder, lies were stacked in such rapid succession that a new, distorted reality emerged, resembling a hellscape out of some distorted bizarro world nightmare, where good is bad, right is wrong, truth is malleable, and America is evil. It might make for a good read in a dystopian fiction novel, but this rapid descent into anarchy and chaos is already impacting the lives of ordinary Americans, and if we allow it to continue, it will only get worse.
Banning Free Speech
“It is very disheartening to me that people can still walk around America being hateful to people based on their race, gender identity, sexual orientation, etc. It’s unacceptable and should be criminalized.” – William Kosko
Perhaps the most frightening narrative arising from the woke movement is the idea that freedom of speech has limits beyond protecting groups or individuals from immanent physical danger. Since the ratification of the Bill of Rights in 1791, freedom of speech and expression have been fundamental pillars of our foundational freedoms. However, using the pretext of “hate speech,” woke authoritarians are actively working to convince you that freedom of speech must have “limits.” Remarkably, 40% of millennials approve of laws limiting free speech that’s offensive to minorities.
Slowly, over time, Americans have become increasingly tolerant of free speech limitations. When Facebook and Twitter ban a sitting president from posting on their platforms due to claims of “disinformation” and “hate speech,” the woke fantasy has become our reality.
Human-Caused Climate Change
The sooner we acknowledge that the earth’s climate is changing, the quicker we can begin to unwind the enormous damage woke policies have done to our energy infrastructure. Climate change is a clever scheme that involves curtailing freedom and exercising control in the name of saving the planet. Somehow, we have been conned into accepting Woke’s assertion that the climate should never change, even though five separate ice ages, where humans had no impact, are documented throughout our planet’s long history.
Yet, accepting that our current climate may be changing isn’t enough. Progressives demand that you admit rising temperatures could only be caused by human activity, which completely discounts forces of nature that have influenced our climate for countless millennia. Worse, these same people demand that your lifestyle must suffer by limiting choices, raising the cost of living and creating significant inconvenience.
EVs, solar and wind energy are all manifestations of a collective hallucination that envisions an environmental utopia straight out of the movie Avatar. Instead, we’ll have to become accustomed to rolling blackouts, graphite pollution, unreliable vehicles, a solar panel landfill catastrophe, dead whales due to wind turbine noise pollution, and soil contamination from EV batteries loaded with toxic metals and chemicals.
Systemic racism is a nebulous term that can’t be quantified. For those who struggle to understand the concept, here is a definition:
“Systemic racism is both a theoretical concept and a reality. As a theory, it is premised on the research-supported claim that the United States was founded as a racist society, that racism is thus embedded in all social institutions, structures, and social relations within our society. Rooted in a racist foundation, systemic racism today is composed of intersecting, overlapping, and codependent racist institutions, policies, practices, ideas, and behaviors that give an unjust amount of resources, rights, and power to White people while denying them to people of color.”
Ok… Got that? Me neither…
Systemic racism can’t be proven, measured or even accurately defined, yet it is used as a weapon to silence critics of progressive policies and woke authority. Within minority communities, this cancerous idea has cast suspicion and doubt on important institutions like education, employment, homeownership, criminal justice and healthcare. Using flawed studies, skewed social experiments, faulty reasoning and anecdotal evidence, Woke stokes fear and racial division, but even worse, destroys opportunities for personal growth.
Woke Fantasies Must Not Become Our Reality
The above examples only represent a segment of the all-out assault on everything we have been taught and practiced in our lifetimes. Child grooming, gender insanity, open borders and a narrative designed to cast the United States of America as a racist, evil nation, top the list of liberal priorities as they work feverishly to replace your reality with their own warped, distorted version of a “just” America.
We must stand up and fight against these authoritarian zealots before the American dream, that so many have died defending, descends into an apocalyptic nightmare from which we will never awake.
