Woke is a Joke

(be advised, I don't necessarily agree with everything I link - sometimes it is for counterpoint).

Yet you often don't bother to disclose this about your links until somebody's called BS on them...

These data:

show the truly Woke to be a statistical outlier.

Their influence is amplified by their toxicity. One doesn't agree with a mob intent upon burning down anything owned by someone who opposes them on the basis of the merits of their position.

Well done Captain Obvious.

You've just demonstrated what everyone else already knew - the stupidity of your incessant rants that equate anyone liberal with the most radical fringes of wokeness.

It is said that perversion is anything you won't do.  GLAAD and Gay Pride historically distance themselves from NAMBLA, as an example.

Having said that, LGBTQRST... no longer seems to be so stuffy:

Oscar Wilde would be proud.

Because of one person? In that case straight people are cool with it too. Why aren’t you here ranting about how perverted straight people are? 
 

Maybe because there’s no logic, no reason, no thought whatsoever behind your position - you’re just a closed minded bigot.

This guy makes a pretty good case:

https://michaelshellenberger.substack.com/p/why-wokeism-is-a-religion

I know religions are touted as having all kinds of wonderful societal benefits, but their track record throughout the historical record is checkered at best. 

Typically religions wax psychotic.  You have Europeans wearing a symbol of the European means of executing Jews, supposedly following a particular Jew - who they label with a name he couldn't necessarily pronounce - basing their literature largely on the Jewish family history, and continuing to ostracize and kill the family members of the dead individual they claim to idolize.

The Jewish family history itself is no better, claiming divine authority for acts of genocide, genital mutilation, slavery, misogamy and general weirdness.

The more recently concocted religions are no improvement on their predecessors.  Islam, Mormon, Communism and Scientology are as completely off the wall as the earlier isms.

Given the track record of Western religions, Woke is every bit as fucked up as any of its predecessors.

Well done!

How many people on here have tried to start a conversation with you about the fact that your definition of 'woke' is extreme at best and doesn't fit with the rest of the world?  Instead of having any kind of conversation, you just keep trotting out random links to articles that you believe prove your point...it's just getting downright masturbatory at this point!

But as you so recently pointed out, almost no one is really woke. 
 

If the Jewish religion is just as bad and there are more of them, why don’t you spend all day every day complaining about that instead?

From this guy's standpoint, Woke is a particularly unfunny joke:

I guess he has a point.

Because his version of being Jewish is fine. He can see nuance when it comes to him or what he believes in. He can't see nuance in anything else. The only thing he knows is that he is always right and everybody else is wrong.

Exactly.  To him, the leaders of Judaism as portrayed in the Bible are lovable scoundrels, foolish in their Levitican ways perhaps - but they meant well.  I mean, sure, Moses said to kill all the children and older women of a conquered city, but "save" the youngest virgins for the use of his own officers.  But you have to understand this and that and the other thing to really understand where there were coming from.  There are nuances!  

But Islamic leaders?  Violent pedophiles, and people who follow them are mentally ill.  And if you bring up "nuance" you're a pedophile supporter yourself.

That’s not exactly true. Best I can tell he admits that the Torah is fucked up but it’s ok because no one takes it seriously. Not even hardcore Rabbi’s honest! Where’s the Koran is fucked up and that’s an unsolvable problem and anyone who follows any part of it must be just as fucked up. 
 

Im not sure if it’s better or worse.

Ah, the voice of malevolent ignorance!

The patriarchs of the Hebrews were, to a man, Mr. Bad Example.  Name one who wasn't a fuck up, I challenge you.  However, we're stuck with them because they're family.  If we had to pick more honorable types, we could have done better.

Also, the bulk of our Bronze Age traditions are scrupulously avoided these days, since we long ago swore off genocide, slavery and the like.  Someone who went along with these vile practices would be incarcerated and treated as a pariah.

'Belief' in the religious sense is mental illness pure and simple.  Yasir Arafat was rumored to note that religious wars are contests to determine who has the best invisible friend.

Most of the current versions of the Cult of the Magic Jewish Zombie have sworn off the evil basics of its origins (when Messianic Judaism was co-opted by the Roman Empire), though still retaining as their symbol the means by which Rome executed Judeans et al..  The Vatican did underwrite Italian Fascists and the Third Reich, and kept war criminals out of trouble thereafter, but that's in keeping with their tradition of shielding pervert priests.

The modern traditions of Islam include such charming actions as 'honor killing' one's daughter if she is raped, killing gays (though it's halal to rape nonbelievers of either sex),  Far from being a 'Prince of Peace,"  Muhammad (may he rot in hell) was a certified pervert and heavily documented as a murderous psychopath.  Following that sick bastard is OPTIONAL, being of the Children of Israel is a TRIBAL IDENTITY and requires no particular belief system.

Whoosh.

I have no idea who my ancestors of 250 years ago were, let alone 2500 and I don’t particularly care. You’re not stuck with anything.

And yet there is one, and it is also entirely optional.

 

Wooooooooosh.

Yeah, that's fair.  But there's quite a lot of forgiveness and "if you just understood X you would realize that . . ." mixed in there.  A lot of nuance.

On topic. Woke=joke

You realise that fictional characters (being fictional and all) have no agency and the very concept of forcing them to do anything makes no sense?

So, what exactly do you think you're doing except for proving the intolerance of the anti-woke movement? Why are they trying to cancel the owners of those characters simply because they disagree with the plot decisions that were made?

Obviously the point eluded you.  If Woke was so popular it would be able to survive in the market place of ideas, but it can’t just ask Subway.

Thanks Winsor, pretty much sums up your belief system as exactly what Mr. S Dekker said.

Lol, you’re too sensitive to cope with seeing fictional gay people in public but you think I should lighten up? :rofl:

By the way, your evidence that it can’t compete in the marketplace of ideas is one angry note from one angry subway customer. It’s not very compelling. On the other hand your homophobic Christian video is very good evidence that it can.
