Woke Means Weak

How to raise Cowards and Weaklings.

If you can’t acknowledge visible reality because someone is too weak to handle feeling uncomfortable then all rooms will be filled with elephants that you cannot mention.

Woke and Weak are synonyms.

Trending on PolitiCrossing.com: Choosing to Trust Yourself

The current trend toward avoidance of anything that would make anyone uncomfortable is an exercise in futility. Even if pursued diligently for a generation you would never reach a point of successful completion.

There is no place in life that is continually safe, comfortable and non-offensive. As soon as you satisfy one special interest person, yet another will stand up and say, “But what about me?”

The problem is perception vs reality. The original intention behind what we now call “woke” was to be courteous and considerate of others. Well, that’s not only noble, it’s also holy. What a great thing to be! But the reality of how it is being implemented is a sad and dangerous one. Even the term “woke” is a denial of proper English. It’s supposed to mean awake, aware, more compassionate, considerate, more sensitive to what is around you. There are already terms for that.

Who decides if you are Woke?

Woke leaders are not really “leaders” but rather, just those who initiate woke assertions. Their overriding cause is “Social Injustice.” That means anything they don’t feel is equitable. What you feel doesn’t matter to them, it’s what they and their cabal feel is correct that matters.

They seem to always start with the elimination of something instead of adding something.

So, instead of adding an acknowledgment of the group or condition to be included, they put their energies on the diminishing or elimination of its opposite. e.g., to diminish racial discrimination, they set aside special considerations for their chosen race and not for others; to include homosexuality they attempt to de-popularize heterosexuality. They try to make it cooler to be homosexual or bisexual than to be heterosexual.

To advance a new idea, they seek to eliminate all older ideas, e.g., tearing down statues, eliminating history instead of learning from it and still honoring the best of it.

To make transgender athletes feel better, they seek to dilute male or female sports by requiring trans inclusion.

To advance Socialism they seek to make Capitalism seem selfish, threatening and bad.

Does it work?

The ludicrous irony of these efforts is that they don’t please enough people to justify the disruption and angst they cause to hundreds of others. It’s as if the entire community must hobble itself so that the one new person who is different won’t feel different.

Woke people love labels!

Their first attention goes toward separating people into groups: races, genders, belief systems, ages, cultures, etc. They want a label to use against their opponent. Racist! White Nationalist! Male Domination! Trumper! Fascist! Homophobe! Sexist! All of these are terms from the woke handbook. They teach children to use them too. But there are not many clear definitions for them. That allows unrestricted use of these terms as weapons.

If there’s no consensus as to what makes you a Racist, then all they have to do is call you one and the label sticks. And, in woke thinking Accusation is the same as Conviction! If you’ve been accused, then you are guilty. No evidence to the contrary is needed nor welcomed. Thousands of people still believe the myth around “Hands up, don’t shoot” and other slogans promoted without facts to prove them.

If you’re looking for a place on Earth where woke has worked, you will be disappointed. California is the closest but it’s a disaster. The epicenter seems to be the San Francisco Bay Area. No other country has ever sustained a woke culture nor caused one to thrive. It’s like Socialism, despite being a complete disaster everywhere it is practiced fully, (Venezuela, Cuba, etc.) the woke crowd tells you it’s the most woke solution. And “it will be different for us. We’ll do it right.” is also a lie.

Annual Exclusion Rites (Woke version of a Holiday)

Each winter there is yet another effort to eliminate the open acknowledgment of Christianity in America. In their effort to not “disenfranchise” Muslims, Taoists and Atheists, the woke supremacists seek to outlaw Christmas. Even saying “Merry Christmas” offends them! They reply, “I’m not Christian, so stop trying to force your religion on me!”

My response to that is, “I’m wishing you happiness in this holiday season, not trying to convert you to a belief system. And since my good wishes seem to offend you, I retract them.”

The same applies to “Happy Birthday”. If it’s not your birthday then the words weren’t intended for you, so ignore them.

“Good Morning” isn’t a comment on the quality of the morning, it is an expression of good wishes to the other person. If someone says, “What’s so good about it?” Just smirk and say, “Never mind, I was wishing you one and I take it back.”

Woke supremacists have even invented new holidays to counter the mainstream traditions. Kwanzaa is one example of that. “Festivus” is a fun satire on this concept. (From the TV show Seinfeld.)

Why do I say, “woke means weak”?

Because it requires that you enter a state of perpetual uncertainty and that you take no firm positions on anything except the criticism of those who are not woke.

The woke posture would be a constant accommodation of every possible outlier. “Good morning Ladies and Gentlemen” would have to become some long laborious mentioning of and apologizing to any possible variant from men or women or appreciators of mornings.

Don’t buy into it!

There are certain truths and realities in life that are not a matter of mood, opinion or personal choice. Up is up and down is down. Colors exist, genders (two of them) exist in all of Nature, ages, sizes, shapes, locations, concepts, and historical facts exist. That doesn’t mean we should be insensitive to others nor that we shouldn’t seek to be courteous and to include others where appropriate. It just means that truth exists even if you disagree with it! If you don’t believe in gravity, please don’t expect to be exempted from its effects.

If you were born a biological male but aren’t happy with that, please don’t expect others to treat you differently unless you’ve undergone a sex change and taken on the attributes of a female. You can’t “identify as” anything other than what you truly are unless you’re ok with lying. Even then, you’re playing that game alone. Don’t expect us to join in the deception. He or She are the most workable pronouns, not “they” applied to an individual.

There are surely woke folk who have already dismissed me as a white privileged, male dominant, legacy-thinking, homo/trans/xenophobe. OK, I’m not writing to them anyway. They aren’t willing to be part of a solution. They want to do what makes them feel correct in their existing point of view. Denial of reality is comfortable to them.

Courage is the game changer.

The world advances when courageous individuals do what is needed. Courage comes from a clear set of beliefs, rooted in objective truth. When you know that something is true, then you act on that with boldness of faith. When you’re not sure or you’re afraid someone will disagree, then you take only timid actions.

If we teach our kids woke-ness then we raise them to be cowards.

That’s not the road to courtesy. Courtesy comes when one who is strong chooses to suspend the assertion of their strength in order to honor or accommodate another temporarily. But you must have strength to do so. Strength comes from clarity of thought and disciplined action. When you know what is true and can act on it boldly, then you can have courage. When you’re always unsure, weakness ensues. When you have self-discipline, you can develop strength, when you constantly change then you become a weakling and a coward.

Here’s your sign:

If the person who opposes you immediately calls you names, like Racist, Sexist, White Nationalist, etc. then you are dealing with both a Coward and a Weakling. In other words, you’re fighting with a child.

You can fully expect that whatever they say, instead of trying to reason with you or discuss your ideas, will ultimately come down to them calling you a name and saying, “I hate you!” That’s what little children do when they have no good response.

Let’s all start telling the truth again. And, hey, Be nice to each other.

Photo Caption: Cultural appropriation in 1964: I wore a sombrero (Mexican), at a Phi Sigma Epsilon (Greek) event, Jail implies my approval of law enforcement, I’m wearing a bandolier of toy bullets, but the threat is implied I guess, also I’m wearing cowboy boots, but I own no cattle. I’m wearing a large real hunting knife in a scabbard (instead of a six gun) at a school event and I’m smoking. OMG! Open the safe spaces, there’s no telling how many I’ve injured.

I’m just thankful that it wasn’t a Vaudeville themed event. I might have worn black face, which at that time wasn’t controversial. (Yes, it is now, and I understand why, but 50 years ago the world was different, and people acted according to the times just as we do now.)

Why Mainline Republicans Should NOT Be Trusted in Latest Threats

When conservatives and populists finally got someone who they believed in, the mainliners were the first people to jump ship.

Published

We’ve all been told for years and years that we have to support the mainline candidates but when conservatives and populists finally got someone who they believed in, the mainliners were the first people to jump ship. And they still continue to perpetuate their angst ridden accusations. From this no-name guy who I can’t even remember who is threatening to pull people out of the party to Liz Cheney to your average mainline Republican, Chris Widener, the founder of PolitiCrossing take them apart piece by piece in his latest video.

The 90-year Shame of the New York Times

Despite its constant lies, propaganda, and censorship, the New York Times is regarded by many as the ‘newspaper of record,’ offering ‘all the news that’s fit to print’

Published

on

The New York Times deliberately buried the story known as the Terror-Famine, in 1932 and 1933, which astoundingly killed 3.9 to 7.0 million Ukrainians, at least one out of every eight people, perhaps one out of every four people.

The editors at the Times were well aware that the famine was orchestrated by Joseph Stalin who forbade outside food and aid shipments, confiscated household food items, and restricted the mobility of Ukrainian citizens.

What made Stalin do this to a region known as “the world’s breadbasket”? He sought to punish independence-minded Ukrainians, quash anyone who represented a threat to his totalitarian government, and vanquish Ukraine’s small farms in favor of Soviet state-run collectives. Stalin lost no sleep over the legions of emaciated bodies, near death, scratching for any morsel of food they could find.

Maniacal and Mendacious

Why did The New York Times bury this heart-wrenching, world-shaking story? Then, as now, their leftist bent was so intense and so all-encompassing that they couldn’t help themselves. The blunt truth is that they do not care who is hurt as long as socialist/Marxist/communist ideology prevails on earth.

In another 10 years, it will be at least 100 years since the Times and other heavily left-leaning organizations, which today comprise the highly biased ‘mainstream media,’ have been dominant.

In 2121, one hundred years from now, is it realistic to believe that the facade which the mainstream media has foisted on Americans and on free people around the globe will not continue to dominate?

Will their maniacal ideology, somehow, finally be exposed by some new form of information dissemination or some fundamental shift in media coverage?

Sheeple at the Trough

Just how biased and detrimental their slanted news coverage has been to humanity, globally, is difficult to fathom. For decades on end, when you prop up socialist, Marxist, or communist regimes, are you helping anyone?

The mainstream media has held a news and information monopoly for so long, so skillfully, that the facade is not remotely understood by those in its spell, and bitterly denounced by those who see the mainstream press for what it really is. In the long run, truth generally prevails.

Even today, after five years of attempting to prove it, not a shred of evidence indicates that Donald Trump, his administration, or his campaign colluded with Russia.

Still, you have Adam Schiff, Eric Swalwell, and all the other dolts in Congress who will readily appear on TV and spew lies. They play the ‘talking head’ game with sympathetic hosts and continue the guise, holding sway over those who don’t know how to find out the truth.

A Stranglehold for the Ages

The stranglehold that the Left and the mainstream media has on humanity leads to some intriguing philosophical questions. Even before the mass media came into being, has there always been some entity that enforced its will upon the unwitting masses?

Throughout history, dictators and other rulers imposed their version of the truth on the unwitting masses. Even in societies where news and information was somewhat freely exchanged, has there always been a faction that sought to slant reality and the will of others? It seems likely.

In the 21st century, roughly half of the U.S. and roughly half of the globe are still subject to Leftist manipulation. Despite all the information sources that exist today, why does so much of the world still fall for obviously manufactured and manipulated news?

How can people keep tuning in to CNN or MSNBC, or for that matter the nightly news on ABC, NBC, or CBS? How many times does CBS have to be caught red-handed doctoring the news, slanting stories on 60 Minutes, and laying traps for people like Governor Ron DeSantis, only to be exposed?

And then, within a matter of days, having learned nothing, CBS reverts right back to more of their insidious ways of presenting information.

Living with Perpetual Lies

How often can The New York Times offer a story the latter proves to be completely untrue, and its editors knew was untrue at the time, and yet its readership is unfazed?

How can the Times continue to be regarded by many as the ‘newspaper of record,’ offering ‘all the news that’s fit to print’? What tidal wave of human understanding, once and for all, needs to occur before we universally recognize highly biased reporting sources for what they are?

In the U.K., news publications openly advocate a position, left or right, and don’t play pretend. Consumers understand the bias that each media outlet or newspaper maintains, can read articles, and judge them accordingly.

In the U.S., the mainstream press continues to push lie that they offer an objective, balanced view of what’s happening in the world. How can they continue to do this? Sadly, enough fools buy what they say… lock, stock, and barrel.
