Woke Conservatives

Few things are as annoying as conservatives chirping excitedly that at least wokism has been defeated in this election.

How? How exactly has it been defeated by winning the election?

Well, the election showed that more people of color voted for Trump in 2020 than in 2016 so it must mean that they don’t really like wokism all that much.

Stupid, stupid individuals.

Nobody gives a crap what “people of color” really want. You are buying into woke lies when you assume that their movement is truly about doing things to please people of color.

The whole framing of the issue – if it’s white it’s bad, if it’s non-white it’s good – shows that you have already been conquered by wokeness. You are looking for legitimacy in a way defined for you by the wokesters. You have already lost. Your brain has been thoroughly overtaken by wokeness. This is precisely why you can’t even notice how badly you lost.

One thought on “Woke Conservatives”

  1. They’re saying it because Trump showed conservatives that politicians from the right whose pitch is that they put America first can in fact defeat politicians from the left whose pitch is to put individual & group identity first (ie tribalism or so-called identity politics).

    Personally I think that they’re being naive, because if anything, being defeated is just going to spur the totalitarian maniacs in this world to destroy any kind of democracy or competition that could ever remove them from power.
