Although change is sometimes good, this isn’t i of those times. Overnight, the US has changed into something alien, something ill. Wokeness has arrived with a vengeance, and it doesn’t bode well for the nation’s futurity.

In the beginning, it seemed reasonable to dismiss ‘abolish culture’ as a bad joke, symptomatic of Trump Derangement Syndrome, a very real clinical condition known for unhinging even the brightest minds. Merely the joke was told years agone, and nobody is laughing anymore.

The first sign that something sinister had infected the left side of the American cranium occurred in the unlikeliest of places: the higher campus, the manicured citadel of free thought and expression where the very thought of censorship is wholly repugnant. But that was yesterday. Today, university students consider information technology their solemn duty to silence any individual or individuals who practice not share their (liberal) worldview. Peak insanity occurred in February 2022, when violent protesters hurled rocks and torched buildings at the University of California, Berkeley to prevent conservative speakers – including controversial commentator Milo Yiannopoulos – from addressing a grouping of students. From in that location, information technology was off to the insanity races.

In the wake of this collegiate brain rot, said to have taken root during Globe State of war Two with the arrival of ‘Cultural Marxists’ from Germany to America’due south unsuspecting shores, statues in the town square are being toppled, ‘offensive’ corporate logos removed, and historical works of American art and literature forever shelved; even being so bold as to advise that ‘2+2=4’ risks turning a person into a social pariah.

Meanwhile, the honorable want for building a meritocracy – which, according to the inquisition, stinks to loftier heaven of white supremacy and privilege – has been replaced by a politically correct mediocrity. In other words, America is on the express lane to Idiocracy, population 330 million.

This cult-similar craze, where the bigots are engaged in a strange competition to discover new things to rage well-nigh, is no longer a campus activity. With the introduction of ‘critical race theory’, another damaged product of the academic encephalon that teaches that all white people are inherently racist, the corporate globe has gone full-blown woke to the bespeak where Coca-Cola, when it is not pushing culling sexual lifestyles on children, is instructing its workforce to “be less white.”

Meanwhile, United Airlines recently appear it will be alternative white male person pilots in the cockpit in favor of minority groups, because I guess enough planes are not crashing. That is not to suggest that the flying skills of minorities are somehow junior to those of white males, but rather that naught proficient ever comes when it is forced from higher up.

While this inquisition is obsessed with purging from American order any hint of ‘racism,’ or favoritism towards whites, it never pauses to consider that these ‘final solutions’ are fomenting a new sort of racism, this time against the white population. Although it may fly in the face of the new woke math, two wrongs volition never make a right.

In a timely and thoughtful article on the subject, the bourgeois commentator Victor Davis Hanson forwarded a question that must exist on a lot of minds these days: “Tin the not bad ‘awokening’ succeed?” Perhaps even more to the indicate is, what happens if it does?

Examining the state of affairs with Orwell’s ‘Beast Farm’ in mind, Hanson suggests that Wokeism takes information technology on faith that the white population in these mail-George Floyd times will quietly agree with the position that “some discrimination is good and different from other discrimination.” In other words, although almost people agree that the former racism confronting blacks was incorrect, the sort of racism at present targeting white people in the name of ‘social justice’ and the ‘mutual good’ is an entirely different beast, and ane that fifty-fifty white people volition agree is acceptable.

Under such improbable circumstances, Hanson continues, it will seem natural to toss around with reckless carelessness terms like “whiteness,” “white privilege,” “white supremacy,” and “white terrorists” about all 230 million American whites, “in a way that it would be terribly wrong to talk pejoratively and collectively in terms of any other group.

Hanson asks if whites in the United states of america will happily disregard breathy discrimination where, every bit only two examples, “criminal suspects shall not be identified by race unless they are white,” while, at the same time, America’south nearly aristocracy colleges can justify restricting “white admissions to around 30-40 percent of their incoming classes?” Hanson is of the opinion they will not, but offers no hint as to what that refusal may entail, bated from some self-inflicted damage. And hither is where it may exist forgotten that white liberals were themselves responsible for the woke movement in the first place.

The liberal white elite grade engineered a organisation of woke racialism that they assumed rested on some sort of unspoken seventy percentage white” who would absorb the brunt of the anti-white inquisition, Hanson reasons. “[The woke white elite] did not sign upward for a 30-40 per centum white allotment that cuts into the white woke; that is, the good and the morally superior whites.” From this perspective, white elites pushed their woke agenda for self-gain while never suspecting that one day, much like Dr. Frankenstein, their hideous creation would one solar day render to devour them.

For all the brilliance of Hanson’southward insight into the disturbing woke phenomenon, he missed a signal that I believe needs emphasizing. First, to subject an entire race of people to the nigh despicable sort of stereotypes, which portray whites as dyed-in-the-wool racists with lilliputian hope for rehabilitation, is unforgivable precisely considering it is fake. Information technology is unfortunate that anyone would take to labor the point, simply US history is just loaded with too many examples of whites fighting on behalf of fairness and equality to go unmentioned. Yes, slavery was a horrible chapter in American history, but it cannot exist discussed in a vacuum as though at that place was never a Civil War or a boxing for civil rights, or affirmative action, for example, and many other pieces of legislation specifically designed to help minorities.

2nd, it would appear that the entire woke brigade has learned nil from the harsh lessons of history – which should come every bit no surprise, since universities have largely cancelled such invaluable studies, go figure – and what tin come equally a upshot of ruthlessly attacking a single race of people. Nobody can imagine a genocide happening today, any more than the Jews and gypsies could have imagined one occurring in the early on days of Nazi Germany. But then again, nobody could have imagined just five years agone that white people in the United states would become the focal point of such an ugly ‘cancel civilisation’ detest entrada, largely fanned by an uncritical and complicit media.

Attacks of a racist nature against any group are only disgusting, and it is shocking that such a affair is allowed to happen in America, 1 of the about racially various countries in the world. Information technology should be remembered that the US did not get diversified by accident; it became that way because it was encouraged to happen by the American people, the majority of whom are (notwithstanding) white.

It’south time to stop the race-baiting and discover the real source of this racial discontentment earlier the United States finds itself with far worse problems to consider than the hidden racism of a Dr. Seuss book or the name of a pancake batter. The world is watching, America; get information technology together.
