Wokeness – It’s not just a fad; it’s not just some suppuration from the boil that is Millennial culture; it’s not even just a sociopolitical ideology. It’s a theology. It meets all the criteria and has all the material and cultural trapping of one.
There’s a lot of talk among “White” Liberals and Progressives about being a good White ally to groups such as #BlackLivesMatter, and this is just about the stupidest thing I’ve heard of.
You can’t be their ally and they don’t want or see as an ally, and they likely never will do so.
If you’re told to be quiet and only speak in total, unquestioning support of their manifesto, you’re not an ally; you’re a subjugated people.
If you’re told that you don’t and can’t understand a group’s purpose, agenda, and/or raison d’etre and that it is not your place to have it explained to you, you’re not an ally; you’re a subjugated people.
If you’re told that you are inherently wrong and/or evil and that supporting the “allied” group is necessary, yet will not ever be something that will make you no longer inherently wrong and/or evil, you’re not an ally; you’re a subjugated people.
If you’re told that you actively attack and work against your own people in total support of the “allied” group, you’re not an ally; you’re a subjugated people.
So set those particular quisling dreams of allyhood aside. To #BlackLivesMatter, you’re just another evil, untrustworthy White who deserves to be and must be subjugated in order for the Blacks to get what they want.
Oooh! Granny Shart aka Nancy Pelosi turn upon and snapped at Baby Shart aka Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Apparently, Crazy Ole Nancy is quite ready to pass the torch to the New Left. 😆
“When we won this election, it wasn’t in districts like mine or Alexandria’s,” Pelosi said. “[S]he’s a wonderful member of Congress as I think all of our colleagues will attest. But those are districts that are solidly Democratic.”
To drive the point home she picked up a water glass next to her and said: “This glass of water would win with a ‘D’ next to its name in those districts.”
Yep! A glass of water with a “D” next to its name. That how Nancy specifically referred to AOC and her victory in NY’s 14th District. Fucking Ouch! That’s cold.
Pelosi’s declamation was also both fanatically partisan and inaccurate. She utterly ignores the nature of the primary election and electorate that placed AOC in that Seat. Maybe she should have spoken to defeated incumbent Joseph Crowley, a White Man with 20 years of experience in office who lost his Seat primarily or largely because he was a White Man running this time against a Hispanic Woman in a district which became 49.80% Hispanic and only 18.41% White over recent-ish years.
Face it, Folks, when even CNN acknowledges this sort of thing – though they’re careful to make it seem something not too distant from a positive – this is more than likely a real issue.
