Where or where are all the eco-nuts up in arms about this ecological disaster? Crickets is what I hear. One would think they would be taking Biden and Mayor Pete to the woodshed, but then again, one would think wrong. Crickets over the biggest eco-disaster of the new year. 300 miles away:

Muslim DEI Chief Of Left-Wing Group Accused Of Being White Instead Of ‘Person Of Color’: Report

“Oskar Castro, a human resource professional with a focus on DEI who helped to bring Saraswati to the AFSC, told The Intercept that he felt “deceived” because he believed that she wasn’t white, and checked a variety of diversity boxes.
“In my mind, it was, ‘Great, a person of color, a queer person of color, who happens to be a Muslim, it’s a woman,’ all these things, and someone who seemed to get it. I definitely feel conned,” he said.”

George,
Could you elaborate on how the religious revival marathons you mentioned are a seen as a reaction to woke things, and I’m assuming you mean left ideas?
As far as I can tell the right is not the only party involved in religion. My family is involved with religion, some Baptist some Lutheran. My brothers a minister.


As far as that Chapel Hill story, it sounded like it was religious courses being suggested, but the bigger issue was a creation of a new school or buildings to house those religious studies. Adding some classes is one thing but a building sounds costly.

"The woke tsunami has gotten to the point that Fox actually had to declare WAR on it.

“Fox’s War On The Woke Mind Virus”"

Huh. 'Virus' doesn't seem the right word, I'm more comfortable with 'secular religion', and a particularly expansionist one at that.

You really need the more enthusiastic jihadi instinct that comes with as opposed to the sorts of things a virus does (cause symptoms that help spread a disease). An argument could be made that wokeism is more similar to those sorts of parasites that cause behavior changes, but really religion is a better model since it implies active participation by conscious behavior.


Thing is, this has happened before, with the normal horrendous effects. You do have to wonder what happened in 19th C. Europe that fired up so much craziness...perhaps it's simply a combination of industrial (and farming) revolution increases in wealth and an over-supply of educated urban non-workers. It ain't like the Russian or French revolution was run by 'the workers' lol.

Gregory

As far as I can tell, the woke left is consumed with the religion inherent in Hegelian/Marxist dialectics.

Your attempts at gaslighting is transparent... the right and center are not crazy. "Woke" is real.

Why the Attack on the Family Is Doomed

Chicago Teachers Union:

Public education, too, has faltered. Nearly 90,000 students – roughly 25% of the city’s total – have left Chicago’s Public School (CPS) system since 2010, as families opt for private schools or flee the city entirely. Those still in public districts are struggling: Nearly 80% of Chicago 11th graders could not read or perform math at grade level, according to state data from 2022. Meanwhile, half of CPS students are chronically absent.

Corruption and machine politics have always been part of Chicago’s story, and the CTU is the unquestioned ringleader of the current machine. It is, first and foremost, a political organization – and its politicking never rests, even when employees are supposed to be on the job in schools.

Take John Kugler. In an interview for the new documentary “Local 1: The Rise of America’s Most Powerful Teachers Union,” the licensed educator — who formerly served as a CTU field rep — said that he “was assigned to do political campaign calls during the workday. I have the emails.”

And those politics aren’t just focused on education. Often, it means fighting for things like defunding banks, defunding the police, changes to the tax code, and backing candidates who will parrot their left-leaning agenda.

“I think, ultimately, [the Chicago Teachers Union would] like to take over not only Chicago Public Schools but take over running the city government,” Mayor Lightfoot told The New York Times in 2021.

They’re well on their way. CTU has funded the election campaigns of 34 of Chicago’s 50 current aldermen. But that’s parred for the course with teachers’ unions. The American Federation of Teachers, the parent affiliate of both CTU and the United Federation of Teachers, the local representative of teachers within New York City Public Schools, spent over $35.7 million on politics and lobbying in 2022 nationwide, according to a report filed with the U.S. Department of Labor.

"Wokeism histrionics are a waste of time."

Pointing out the insanity the left is sinking into with their Wokeism is mostly a sadly amusing bit of entertainment. Very close to what the Germans call schadenfreude.
I'm sure some of you lefties are aware of how stupid it makes you look, but don't worry - just like the hula hoop it will have it's day and fade away. There will be wreckage in the meantime, but it seems humans just can't seem to muddle through history without periods of mass insanity.

Fat boy says what....


Two decades ago, MIT professor Thomas Kochan estimated that diversity was already an $8 billion-a-year industry. Yet along with the addition of equity, inclusion, and like terms, the industry has surely grown an order of magnitude larger. Six years ago, McKinsey and Company estimated that American companies were spending $8 billion a year on diversity training alone. DEI hiring and training have only accelerated in the years since.
“In the scope and rapidity of institutional embrace,” writes Marti Gurri, a former CIA analyst who studies media and politics,“nothing like it has transpired since the conversion of Constantine.”

Well, if we can just get K-3 school children to stop being taught about gender identify (which is above their understanding), it would be a start. The extremist Left is consumed with sexual behavior. Baby steps, yet a step nonetheless….with much resistance. The War of Parents continues.

That quote led me to this.

The funny thing about this kind of soft power is that it acquires hard power by being allowed to.

Smaller groups with a strong focus and high self-interest certainly can get all the gold and wimmen though. Whether it's the Bolsheviks or the Conquistadors, concentration and having a strong nose for the main chance is remarkably effective. The US (and Western) public shows the typical response of the breed. It either directly benefits or has no innate common sense or self respect.

I did like some things I saw in the Gurri article link...

arguing that wokeism is more like a personality disorder:

"From the outside, identity feels like thin gruel. Very little is demanded of true believers. They arrive already in a state of grace. Total obedience is demanded of everyone else. We are corrupt beyond redemption and can be detoxified only by our submission.

The platitudes about justice, once questioned, disintegrate into mere slogans. The groups that supposedly define our identity are crude stereotypes. Nobody has ever cried, “Latinx or death!” or “Power to the LGBTQIA!” from atop a barricade. Nobody ever will."

some responses:
================
"Why does this article miss the giant elephant in the room: the effect of feminism on society? Feminism started with a rightful quest for equal rights but in the last sixty years it turned into a very successful identity movement that did wonders advancing its own group using the impossibility for men to publicly disagree with women: partly built in chivalry, but nowadays mostly for the brutal public beating one receives.

This success created its followers, which were then aided by a society where the feminine dominant traits like empathy and neuroticism had gained significant power. This is the vicious circle we are currently witnessing imho. Proof in point is the transgender movement that receives blow back from feminists. They can push back because they never lost their victim license"
......
"There is another giant elephant in the room - the Gini Coefficient. Furthermore, the young are financially screwed - and they knew it since the Obama years. Wokeness allows the Elites to channel the anger of the young down a racial identity path instead of old fashioned Communism. That way the Elites get to keep their wealth."
......
"Eventually wokeism will have to fight Islam for supremacy of the west. It won’t be pretty but as angry and unguided wokeism is, it’s never come up against as implacable an enemy, and one with better marketing, than Islam."
......
"But you're right, the digital flattening of information hierarchies which led to the rise of populism, mostly of the right-wing variety, but sometimes left as well, presented a threat to the existing power structures across what could be called, "the West", causing that power structure to turn away from liberal democracy and towards what Yang has aptly called the "Successor Ideology", i.e. wokeism. "
....
"Like all movements emanating from similar demographics, they all assume one fatal flaw: they are utterly powerless against those with actual power who do not care about what anyone thinks of them.....The true danger is that they will erode institutions and dismantle Constitutional safeguards enough that the backlash will enable exactly the kind of Fascist Thug that they want to call anyone now who won't suck up to them."
=====================


Two or three years ago it was just another snake cult, now... they're everywhere.

Woke has a dictionary definition.

Conservatives choose to obfuscate the meaning to refer to anything they feel is related to perceived progressivism they don’t like

It’s a revolving strawman like CRT.
It involves M &M’s and how James Bond dresses if you haven’t watched the above videos I posted from Fox,
the undeniable fountain of conservative woke complainers.

In the second video I posted from Fox News, which is the better of the two one of the Fox hosts claimed the following:
“the woke left is on a collision course with Christianity”

Found that both fitting and humorous that she was instilling fear about a strawman colliding with a faith based story of a man residing in the clouds.

It was purchased under eminent domain.
Care to guess how many white people have had their land "seized" by the same process? It is a common practice to buy land around future reservoirs with penny on the dollar prices even though the land is above the high water line of the future lake.
After the dam is complete and the lake is formed the land is now worth a lot more and there was never a need to to buy the land for the project, but boy the payoff is swell. It's not racism but govt and corp greed perverting the original idea of eminent domain. Naturally it's the lefties that want to screw over the land owner to help big moneyed interest. One example:

Why would the choice of dictionary matter?

Is there a Fox News dictionary you guys on the right rely on, that doesn’t align with the rest of the dictionaries?

Fox is where you guys get all your talking points apparently, which all coincidentally coincide with Russian propaganda on a regular basis.

Try to find anyone harping online about CRT or woke before Fox started yapping about it if you doubt that.

Same clowns that cast repetitive doubt about the 2020 election on air, while privately mocking Trumps election fraud claims.

Have you noticed they aren’t denying their texts filed in the Dominion lawsuit, hiding behind the 1st amendment because they told their viewers

Saraswati, 39, is the chief equity, inclusion and culture officer of the American Friends Service Committee (AFSC), a Quaker organization that fights globally for peace and social justice.

According to members of the organization, Saraswati, whose birth name is Rachel Elizabeth Seidel, has been misrepresenting her ethnic background for years. The activist claimed to be of Latino, South Asian and Arab descent.

Oskar Pierre Castro, a human resources official who helped AFSC hire Saraswati, said the activist presented herself as a “queer, Muslim, multiethnic woman.”

"In my mind it was, “Great, a person of color, a queer person of color, who happens to be a Muslim, it’s a woman,” all these things, and someone who seemed to get it. I definitely feel conned. I feel deceived," she told The Intercept

I get Woke and Wank confused, especially with the Wank Wokersters. I don’t know about the rest of y’all, but when I was in 3rd grade nobody was talking about masturbation or self-arousal nor self pleasure. Boys were squirmy wormies and girls like to hang with themselves. From recall the song went sorta like this:

‘Boys are made of greasy grimy gopher guts, something something something dirty monkey meat….
Girls are made of sugar bowls and tootsie rolls
and that’s what it’s all about.”

My 6 or 7 grade science class taught me about the birds and the bees, but it was a peer a year older that told how he masturbated and I wasn’t that far behind him.

Nowadays, the Lefty Public Education system is obsessed with sexual arousal and sex (not biological) and teach 3rd graders how to wank, wank, wank. It’s quite Woke of them; them groomers of our children.

Rationing. My Mom said as a young adult that she and her girlfriends could not get nylons after Pearl Harbor. Shocking, but true. All the boys were gone and imagine going to the NCO clubs to find dates….without wearing nylons. Talk about rationing being said as unattractive.

The Biden Administration has said the economy is roaring, inflation is lowering, and our best days are ahead. Osama Bin Laden is dead and GM is alive! Funny, VP Joe Biden was the only one in the situation room (War Room) that opposed taking out Osama Bin Lying.

Anyway….when you take out food, shelter, and clothing, things are looking pretty good. Food, shelter, and clothing are only things people care about most and need the most. Opps, take out energy (gasoline and heating and energy needed to run factories) and the economy is breaking out like gangbusters.

Another clinton epstien tie cut, suicide but no gun found, sound like something we heard before -

[T]he sheriff’s report into Mark Middleton’s mysterious death raises more questions than answers as it rules he died by suicide – despite no sign of the weapon that killed him,” The Daily Mail reported.

“I could see that he had a gunshot wound to the chest and that he had a knot tied in an extension cord that was around his neck and it was attached to the limb directly above him,” Lawson recounted in the report.

Middleton, who apparently signed Epstein into the White House numerous times, also flew on his infamous jet, “Lolita Express.”

Multiple individuals with ties to the Clintons have suddenly died by strange causes in recent years, including Vince Foster

Foster’s death was ruled to have been by suicide, while Foster died after being shot twice in the back.

Peeling the creepy grampa joe financial onion -

Hunter Biden’s top financial lieutenant Eric Schwerin is expected to “soon” provide documents to the House Oversight Committee’s investigation of the Biden family for nine violations, including money laundering and wire fraud, a spokesperson for the committee told Breitbart News.

Schwerin, who shared bank accounts with President Joe Biden and dubbed the family’s “moneyman,” also maintained guest lists for White House functions and negotiated the settlement with Hunter’s first wife, Kathleen. Emails from Hunter’s laptop show Schwerin was deeply embedded in Hunter’s personal life and the Biden family networks for nearly two decades and is even pictured at campaign events with Joe Biden.

Schwerin was also the president of Rosemont Seneca Partners, a fund created by Hunter Biden and several​ associates that spawned business deals in Russia, Ukraine, China, and Romania. Many of those deals yielded the Biden family business millions over decades while Joe Biden was an elected official.

Joe Biden and his team have claimed at least seven times the president is not involved in the family’s international business deals, but more than 17 instances show that Joe Biden was involved in the business. In one example, Schwerin visited the White House and other official locations 27 times when Joe Biden was vice president.

By the way, whatever happened to Jussie?

Based on the latest ruling for Smollett-
"A state appeals court on Monday (1/30/23) granted a request by Jussie Smollett’s defense lawyers for a fifth extension to file their initial argument, but warned it would be the last time....serve and file appellant’s brief on or before March 1, 2023.
His lawyers have said they needed to file 80 pages instead of the standard maximum of 50.

"In the ruling, the judges allowed Smollett to file an oversized brief but not as large as they had requested. Instead, Defendant-Appellant may file a brief not to exceed 20,000 words, a 33% increase in the number of words,” the court ruled.

So "brief" means at most 80 pages, or 20,000 words. Good to know.

The problem with DEI is that it takes zero consideration for cultural differences among the people. Why do 13% of the population committee 50% of the homicides? Why did unwed births soar from 27% to 70% after the Civil Rights Act among certain cultures? Why is high school drop out rates higher among certain cultures in America than others? DEI absolves the individual of responsibility, accountability, and merit.

The GOP Deep State is not so deep,

"PHOENIX (AP) — Arizona's former attorney general suppressed findings by his investigators who concluded there was no basis for allegations that the 2020 election was marred by widespread fraud, according to documents released Wednesday by his successor.

Democratic Attorney General Kris Mayes, who took office last month, said the records show the 2020 election “was conducted fairly and accurately by election officials.”

Previous Attorney General Mark Brnovich, a Republican, never released a March 2022 summary of investigative findings, which ruled out most of the fraud claims spread by allies and supporters of former President Donald Trump. Yet a month later, he released an “interim report" that claimed his investigation “revealed serious vulnerabilities that must be addressed and raises questions about the 2020 election in Arizona."

He released his April report despite pushback from his investigators who said some of its claims were refuted by their probe. Brnovich was at the time in the midst of a Republican Party primary for U.S. Senate and facing fierce criticism from Trump, who claimed he wasn't doing enough to prosecute election fraud.

Brnovich, whose primary bid was unsuccessful, also did not release a September memo that systematically refuted a bevy of election conspiracies that have taken root on the right, including allegations of dead or duplicate voters, pre-marked ballots flown in from Asia, election servers connected to the internet and even manipulation by satellites controlled by the Italian military."

"Democratic Attorney General Kris Mayes, who took office last month, said the records show the 2020 election “was conducted fairly and accurately by election officials.”

*Democratic* Attorney General. lol. Well, naturally. Although it's likely not a matter of 'investigation' or law, it's how and when you report a subset of results.

Thing is, I don't doubt that the elections were run about as legally as usual, and close elections can go either way. This time around, the Democrats masterfully worked mail-in voting, The Plague, and a candidate squatting in a basement. It's easier to look brilliant when the MSM and the social media oligopoly is pulling hard on the same end of the rope.

Personally, I think that Biden is the perfect man to represent a country that has evolved from a founding population of yeoman farmers to an increasingly urban, 3rd world nation with an aggressively activist 'thinking' class with devalued (and de-educated) educations. All types of policing and control will increase, slackjawed cell-phone users will increase, Biden will gaze down on the herd as he, like Tiberius, enjoys his 'little fishies'.
