I despise the term WOKE. That snl skit was perfect.

Hmm — I had never heard the term woke? Where is it used now mostly?

Should we expect to hear how Doug makes us woke?
Will he come out with his own line of kilt now?

Had to look up on Wik:
Woke is a political term of African American origin which refers to a perceived awareness of issues concerning social justice and racial justice. It is derived from the African American Vernacular English expression “stay woke”, whose grammatical aspect refers to a continuing awareness of these issues”

The idea, generally, is that if you don’t agree with a far left social position, it’s because you lack awareness and need to get “woke”.

It’s a form of what I call arguing from condescension. “If you had more life experience, you would agree with me.” There’s no rebuttal to it. Nobody can prove they have “more” or “less” social understanding than someone else. The only thing to do is point out that it isn’t an argument and if they want to make a point about sweeping social issues they need to have real statistics of some kind.

The term was originally useful and meaningful in certain contexts, I agree that it has become almost meaningless now and is especially stupid to use in arguments or against others.

Many such neologisms suffer the same fate. “Hip” was the thing to be back in the 1950’s and 60’s. Now, its derivative, “hipster”, is a term of derision.

“Woke” is turning into a useful word to capture what Emmett Rensin called “the smug style in American liberalism” back when his fellow liberals were still giddy at the prospect that Republicans could be so stupid as to nominate the guaranteed-to-lose Donald Trump.

I don’t know, “made in the USA by white kids”?

How dare they discriminate against foreign workers? Not woke, person. Not. Woke.

Pastor Wilson, I’m going to throw in the towel and let go of my hope that I can ever have a fruitful discussion with you or any of your red pill followers. I really don’t want to join the critics who have simply written you off as half a brick short of a full load, but I admit defeat. From now on I’ll post my complaints about your harmful and damaging theology on my own blog and facebook. As a courtesy, here is a link.

I strongly suggest you read the pleas for repentance on the previous blog from Silas, Anna and Ellen. I recommend those here avoid your blog and FB page (whatever name you use for it) unless you change your tone and direction. Since you vowed to stop commenting here, there’s no need to respond. Godspeed.

“Pastor Wilson, I’m going to throw in the towel and let go of my hope that I can ever have a fruitful discussion with you or any of your red pill followers. “

A fruitful discussion requires that both parties are willing to engage truthfully and understand the other’s arguments. Unfortunately, I doubt that you believe the reason you do not have fruitful discussions is related to your own behavior. Until your eyes are opened, your world will be distorted.

England survey of 12 000 students aged 11-15 showed that 24% of children in this age group had tried recreational drugs at least once, 19% had tried cigarettes at least once, 44% had drunk alcohol.

So we demonise a non-mind-altering (though harmful) substance and the message is that intoxication is less harmful than unhealthy behaviour.

The secularists are clueless and always stuff it up.

I’m afraid that Wokes is not crazy enough to not happen.

I thought jeans were already supposed to be gender neutral in our modern culture?
