Un-ironically referring to yourself as “woke” is a sure sign you’re a clueless yutz. Woke people are the ones who think speech is literally violence. You’re a racist, xenophobic, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, Islamophobic, genderphobic, veganphobic, Hillaryphobic, abeleist, [insert bad thing]ist if you disagree. Even if you agree with them on most other issues.
It was a topic Joe Rogan brought up recently with Bryan Callen on his podcast.
The jump off was Christina Hoff Sommers’ encounter with a pack of greasy leftist potbellies during a speech (see WATCH: University Protestors Scream, Sing, and Blare a Speaker Over Christina Sommers and What Wage Gap? Christina Hoff Sommers Completely Destroys Feminist Lies…). Have a look-see:
ROGAN: One of the things that pisses me off is that I agree with so many of those t***s on so many issues. And then they get so crazy that they want to interupt people like Christina Hoff Sommers and yell that she’s a fascist. There’s just too much conflict that doesn’t make any sense today.
CALLEN: [Woke People] are not reasonable. They’re not civil or reasonable, so I don’t know where else to go. If you’re not going to be reasonable and you’re going to decide that you’re that right. That your side is rooted in truth and love. And my side is rooted in falsehood and evil.
Just like Rogan and Called mentioned, even people who generally agree with “woke” people can’t stand them. Moderate liberals wish the woke would stuff their pieholes with another gluten-free vegan baguette and leave the grown-ups in peace. Though I’ll admit, a lot of us at LwC would prefer they keep right on talking. Wokers woking makes for some terrific content.
Radical lefties train themselves to be discontent with everything in their path. Hence, their blind-firing of “ism” accusations in every direction. Progressives are hellbent on getting their dopamine rush through perceived moral superiority. If they have to cannibalize some of the fellow left-leaning peeps to get their fix, so be it.
