In the background of America’s isolated easiness; its quiet, self-satisfied lives existing with rationality and freedom, changes are occurring under this cloak of serenity. Dangerous, subversive adjustments directed by those who guide society’s transformation for, and through, their own maniacal, self-serving ways.
We find ourselves defending against a societal cancer. One boring its way in through any unwatched communal opening exposed, unguarded; invading, spreading, and destroying a variety of areas of the body politic, steadfastly resolute until the antibodies of freedom and reason no longer fight back to protect the patient.
Meet the disease of “wokeness.”
Woke (/ˈwoʊk/ WOHK), An adjective derived from African-American Vernacular English signifying “alertness to racial prejudice and discrimination.” Woke spread in 2014, encompassing a broader awareness of social inequalities expanded by the Black Lives Matter movement. Used as shorthand for American Left ideas involving identity politics and social justice, it’s marked by an active awareness of other perceived systemic injustices and prejudices, especially those involving the behavior toward ethnic, racial, or sexual minorities.
Woke ideology is a fetid banner covering many ideas, beliefs, and agendas that are meant for one purpose… control. Its flag of condemnation and manipulation, not unfurled for the good of society, but presumes a widespread acceptance of racism, bias and exploitation.
The exponential expansion of this philosophy is represented in all areas of our lives, seeping outside its original racial derivation. Our military, education systems, transportation, politics, international relations, every aspect of our daily lives under scrutiny for crimes perceived against those who partake of its dogma.
Our “woke” leaders inject their irrational principles into their daily observations and decisions, which in turn trickles into our lives through laws, policies and political dictates.
The underlying terms and tactics of “woke” are evidenced through such lingua franca expressions as “Critical Race Theory,” “DEI,” “ESG,” “Equity,” “Inclusiveness,” “Political Correctness,” “White Supremacy,” “Climate Change,” Systemic Whatever,” and other phrases which are not just an obiter dictum, but in fact precedent setting foundations for judging individuals’ personal actions, beliefs and ultimate punishments.
Areo Magazine is quoted to say that “wokeness not only divides, it distracts.” When the top commanding general of our forces finds it imperative to say “I want to understand White rage. And I’m White,” it moves the needle from military tactics and strategies to irrelevant social doctrines and dictates, distracting from the military’s true missions.
MG (ret) Michael McGuire [38 years of service including Operation Desert Shield/Desert Storm – Operations Southern Watch/ Northern Watch; a Fighter Weapons School Graduate and command pilot; commanded the 214th Reconnaissance Group in combat operations in support of overseas contingencies.] expresses:
“Ron, my greatest fear about “wokeness” is not the specific social issues but instead the idea that injecting this type of group think into the military will fundamentally change an organization currently founded on esprit de Corp, morale and a shared sense of service values, to one of compulsorily obedience which every American should be concerned about.”
Our military must be focused on its mission to protect and defend our homeland here and abroad. To misdirect with concepts derived from social issues and ideologies unrelated, invites distractions that will render ineffective its purpose and requisite objectives.
Gordon Chang [author, lawyer, authority on China] expressed to me this week in our interview:
“With China fast making preparations for war, everything is now on the line. There is absolutely no time for social engineering at the Pentagon.”
The President’s recently presented $6.8 trillion “woke budget” referenced equity 63 times, climate 148, environmental justice 25, transgender 8, intersex (whatever this is) 7 – but dealing with important real-life issues of inflation only 10 times, Fentanyl twice, border security 8, and police 4 times.
Our transportation system diminishes daily with problematic supply-chain trucking and shipping issues; airline near-misses; and environmentally damaging train derailments. Our Sec of Transportation focused less on correcting or preventing these disasters, having moved to spokesman for social concerns stating highways are disparaging to certain races, intentionally dividing communities. He expresses all our problems would be solved if more minorities wore construction hats than those who currently come to create and repair.
The woke agenda of social justice has infiltrated our law enforcement community, wedging and bridging itself between reason and radical. The results displayed on nightly news as gangs, undaunted and unfearful of any retribution, attack and kill, or storm through shattered windows and broken doors to loot and destroy.
Eric Caron, [Retired U.S. Diplomat, Former Special Agent in Charge (DHS) Homeland Security Investigations, Sr positions w/ Dept of Treasury, and INTERPOL; managed covert operations disrupting int’l WMD proliferation, terrorism, drug smuggling & human trafficking.] foretold these LEO changes, warning of their consequences.
“As I reflect back, I predicted what would happen to police and our country nearly 3 years ago.
1. 10s of thousands of officers will take off the uniform.
2. Police Depts across America won’t be able fill the ranks (lowering standards to include waiving criminal offenses & physical fitness).
3. Police agencies across America slowly infiltrated knowingly by BLM – Antifa members or associates.
America citizens will continue to suffer: example recent death of a black man by several officers that should have never been on the job. Because of woke politicians & police chiefs more Americans will die and our country will become like Mexico.”
Woke DAs and complicit courts redefine crimes, diminishing the rule of law resulting in societal changes incompatible with standards of public safety, corporate stability, and essential administrative governances.
This wokeness can’t be good for America, its jobs, its business environment… its citizenry.
Kroger, America’s largest grocery chain, made headlines closing several stores in Seattle and Long Beach; CVS closes retail locations affected by looting; Walgreens closes five locations in San Francisco, citing rampant shoplifting; coffee giant, Starbucks, confirmed it will close 16 locations in DC, Seattle, Los Angeles, Philadelphia and Portland, citing “a high volume of challenging incidents that make it unsafe to continue to operate.” Add Apple and others suffering under the weight of retail loss and peril as Nike closes a Portland store and Walmart closes its two stores due to the woke acceptance of shoplifting and vandalism.
California’s insane leniency specifies: “Grand theft under Penal Code Section 487(a) is defined as the illegal or unlawful taking of another person’s property which is valued in excess of $950.“ With calculators in hand, serial thieves roam aisle to aisle ensuring not to break the law, returning later to complete their wish lists; each theft counted as a single incident.
California confirmed it’s woke intelligent reasoning when Max Gomberg, former State Water Resources Board member says, “The whole water rights system sits on a foundation of racism and violence.”
Woke agendas, ESG, DEI etc. continue to extricate our rights and freedoms; they weaken our religious society; corrupt our education system; direct our banking systems; and demean our morals as we continue our slippage into the dark abyss of a country decaying.
This past week as SVB slipped under the waves of poor banking management, their DEI standards were on display, but at what cost? The White House spokesman, lacking any semblance of factual banking and economic resolves, was quick to draw DEI attention to “the historic nature of the moment… All three of us are historic firsts in our roles: the first Black women to serve as CEA Chair, OMB Director, White House Press Secretary” she said. As individual’s and businesses’ money is at risk, this inclusiveness may not be at the top of their “I really care” list.
The woke’s “green agenda” killed a known 23 whales since December, while environmental claimants stand silent watching Chinese financed sonic and seismic testing continue their expansion – decimating fishing grounds vital to food supplies and local jobs.
When America wakes up to the growing warning of woke, instead of the acceptance of wokeness, and stops appointing Supreme Court Justices who can’t define a woman; stops the proliferation of porn in our schools; the degendering of our children; the feminization of our military; stops the obliviousness of our laws and the acceptance of crime as inclusivity through the weakening of our authorities… we’ll get better.
When America stops celebrating men in dresses filling administrative positions, or championing stronger, muscular men competing against smaller, weaker women in sports; When daylight savings changes cease responsibility for minority’s lack of sleep or white drivers aren’t suspects for polluting the air for minorities; When corporate communities stop putting pilots in planes or surgeons in ORs because they check the “person of color” or “trans” box instead of the “qualified” box…we’ll be a safer, more normal and productive country again.
Absurd precepts? Yes, but they’re the guidelines under which we’re expected to live in today’s modern dystopia of democracy.
