The only good news to come out of this mess in the Middle East is that, domestically, we are witnessing the collapse of ‘wokeism.’ It’s happening in real time all around. The woke left has been exposed in spectacular fashion as a complete and total fraud.
The very people who harassed us for years about our speech by demanding jobs be taken, SATs thrown out, businesses shut down for virtually any imagined offense that allegedly ‘dehumanized’ a minority have all gone silent on the open threats and attacks on Jews.
They claimed that hate speech should be banned – even rendered unconstitutional – because it is ‘violent.’ They claimed they needed their own ‘safe spaces’ where they would be ‘centered’ and not subjected to ‘triggering’ ideas and arguments. They told us intent to harm or intent to offend did not matter. All that mattered was the effect of one’s words and effect alone would determine whether one’s career, academic record, or ability to function in polite society could continue.
Now with actual Jew hatred and scorn and threats like “Kill the Jews” all over college campuses, they say absolutely nothing. The BLM crowd, Ibram X. Kendi, Ta-Nehisi Coates not only failed to condemn these behaviors, many in this woke crowd have participated in them and celebrated the Hamas atrocities against Israel.
University presidents allow the Jew hatred to be spewed on the campus quad – Jewish students are being assaulted, scared, encircled and harassed, threatened, and forced to stay inside. These sanctimonious ‘safe space’ warriors are too chicken-sh-t to lift a finger to protect them.
Instead, these same universities that canceled professors for challenging college dogma about race or gender are now suddenly trying to re-style themselves as free speech warriors! We would never punish students for their controversial opinions! Even if those opinions happen to be “Hey hey, ho ho, the Jews on campus have to go!”
They’ve given up the game. They never meant any of it. It was all a ruse to gain control over the rest of us – over the job market, over the politicians, over corporate America that does the hiring. And now we see these are not good-hearted, well-meaning souls embracing the struggle of the minority. They are grifters, frauds, liars, and entitled brats. They have been exposed and they will suffer.
Many of us knew who they were before this. But, for those that did not, it’s over. Any tolerance of these woke warriors will soon be just a distant memory. They have proven themselves to be dastardly, they are dishonest, and they have just revealed themselves as truly dangerous.
