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.

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.)

The New Democratic Sex Cult

They have stopped worshipping the Creator and instead worship the created.

Published

on

The Democrats have become a sex cult. Sex is their religion. They have exchanged worshipping God the Creator and instead worship sex, the created. PolitiCrossing founder Chris Widener explains in this short video and gives you the true answer on how to defeat the sex cult. Read Romans 1:18-27 below the video, then watch the video.

From Romans 1:18-27

18 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.

24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.

26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.

Send Boatloads, Not Plane Loads, of Migrants to Eastern Seaboard Sanctuary Cities

Ultra-wealthy liberal communities don’t want to handle an ultra-thin fraction of border-crossing illegal immigrants

Published

on

The Über-Liberals of Martha’s Vineyard got a tiny, tiny taste of what Texas and Arizona endure every hour, of every day, with no end in sight. What a wonderful glimpse for all the world to see: how an ultra-wealthy, sparsely populated island, in a virtual sanctuary state, handled a thin fraction of border-crossing illegal immigrants, yearning to be free! They sent them away in less than a day.

All those yard signs, all that virtue-signaling, and it all added up to what? Gross hypocrisy. Then the blame game started. DeSantis and Abbott… they are simply evil men, using the poor as political pawns. How do we know? The liberal press is blasting out this message via bullhorns.

As any thinking person knows, the blame lies in Washington, DC thanks to the lax administration of Joe Biden, his lackey Kamala Harris, and the super-incompetent Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, Alejandro Mayorkas.

Making the Dollars Go Further

Apparently Governor DeSantis had to pay handsomely to fly the 50 “exploited souls” to Martha’s Vineyard. However, here is a solution for sending even more, at a far lower cost per person. Buy or rent one of the many cruise ship for sale from the cruise companies which have been hit hard over last 30 months and that now seek to reduce some of their inventory.

Personally, having cruised 39 times, and I can tell you that the these big ships can comfortably accommodate between 2500 passengers. The mega-ships can accommodate 4500. For a short trip up the Atlantic coast, doubling and tripling the number of family members in each room would sum to nearly 10,000 on one voyage. From Texas, navigating the Gulf of Mexico, or directly from Florida, heading up the Atlantic Ocean, a ship could reach Massachusetts within three days.

During the time of the voyage, the facilities on board are excellent. There are health clubs, saunas, steam rooms, a running track, and even a swimming pool or two. These guests of Joe Biden, transported by governors, would actually enjoy themselves on the way up, and then, by golly, be rewarded via the largesse that represents the good people of Massachusetts.

Fulfilling Sanctuary Dreams

Governor DeSantis, as well as Governor Abbott, employing cruise ships could then supply all the sanctuary cities along the Atlantic Seaboard with exactly what they’ve been begging for. After all these years, hey, why not make a wonderful delivery to Baltimore, and then Rehoboth Beach, Delaware where the Bidens frequent?

And how about 1,000s of migrants delivered to Atlantic City, New Jersey, and the Hamptons in Long Island? Don’t forget Bridgeport and New Haven, Connecticut before proceeding to Newport, Rhode Island, Nantucket, and Boston. For good measure make some deliveries to the resort towns in Maine.

What a marvel to behold, as these self-described caring destinations welcome thousands and thousands of migrants, all at once, and artfully absorb them. Sure, there will be some adjustments; such locales will have to spend big bucks for food, shelter, and clothing for these new arrivals… and then find them longer term homes and jobs. So what if local schools are not equipped with foreign language teachers and curricula so that the new children can get up to snuff? Isn’t that what sanctuary cities are all about?

Just Checking In

Let’s revisit all of these places one year later and see exactly how these welcome guests have feared. How about crime? Have they had run-ins with the law? What about the schools? How about public health? Let’s take a very accurate snapshot of what happens on the day they arrived, versus one year later, two years later, and three years later.

Having people dumped into your community, or your home for that matter, despite liberal virtue-signaling, represents a huge change in how you live, and how they live. It’s humanitarian to help a migrant in need. Thousands of migrants, or tens of thousands of them, all at the same time, dropped into a community is not a humanitarian gesture, it is an attack on your way of life.

As Henry Kissinger famously advised then German chancellor Angela Merkel, helping one person in dire need to come to Germany is a humanitarian gesture. Having great masses come to Germany threatens your culture.
