    Time will tell of course, but I think ridiculous movements like woke culture have a real tough time gaining traction when it comes to Main Street USA. Not exactly the lure of freedom and excitement, that came with say, "sex drugs and rock n' roll".

    I tend to agree.... Here, in the Deep South. I would likewise suggest that this has been under development within the halls of academia for our entire lives (and under the radar of Main Street USA), and is certainly an integral part of the ideology that underpins the movements we see tearing up major cities across the USA. My feeling is that Woke culture is only getting started, and what we are seeing is just the first few steps as it breaks into mainstream. The movement is entrenched enough at this point that it will take some major pushback from the individual all the way up to the national/political scale and everywhere in between before it may release its grip in the minds it has infected. Another way to put it, it is like the flyer mind on steroids, as this is not one insane though process but a highly organized system of thought that to my view is as inhuman as it is anti-human, and its expression is collective as so many people have been taught this diseased way of thinking.

    How many gender/womens/black/lgbt studies degrees do you reckon have been handed out in the USA in the last 20 years? That number will give only a small indication of the real scope of the problem, as the ideology is certainly not limited to those who have earned such degrees.

    Just an update on post #38 with the article titled "BREAKING: CDC defies Trump's executive order, moves forward with critical race theory indoctrination".

    There appears to have been a backlash and a reversal, after the leak:

    CDC Cancels ‘Critical Race Theory’ Program Following Doc Leak

    Christopher F. Rufo, who shared details about the leak which brought attention to the now apparently short-lived non-compliance by the CDC, demands that the culpable federal employees face consequences for their attempt to ignore an executive order from the POTUS:

    Not a Trump fan, but this is something I can personally agree with. With the SJWs, as often happens with movements, while there may be some legitimate problems they point to initially, their rhetoric and approach is utterly toxic. I've been unfollowing/deleting friends on social media who've been bit by that particular mind virus. Honestly I think alternative leaning sites like this one are in more danger from the woke brigade than the imperialistic right. It can be easily seen on wikipedia where the woke leaning partner with establishment gatekeepers to steer the narrative.

    With a different constitution or within a different political system, Trump might have been able to direct his executive order to not only the federal agencies, but to other institutions as well. Like, for example, the public schools...

    To add to Chris' post, above, and to further demonstrate just how poisonous Critical Race Theory can be, take a look (in the attached pictures below) at what can be found in a handout that was issued by the Office of Diversity and Inclusion of a public school, in Springfield, Missouri.

    A must-watch segment from last night's Tucker Carlson Show. (8 min.)

    Besides what is described in the tweet below, the segment also addresses:
    • Trump's creation of the "Patriotic Education Commission" to combat the Critical Race Theory indoctrination in schools, which Trump calls "ideological poison".

    • The "1619 Project" (created by New York Times magazine writer Nikole Hannah-Jones and now being praised by people such as Kamala Harris, and being pushed by such luminaries as Oprah Winfrey).

    • Some specifics of the Critical Race Theory indoctrination that children are being subjected to in schools.

    This may belong here. I started by dipping into the start of this 75 minute interview (with Casey Petersen from Sandia Labs, who fought a one-man campaign which succeeded in getting Critical Race Theory removed from the attempted indoctrination of nuclear weapons engineers) — and ended up cheering him on to the very end.

    I wish there'd have been more still. But there is more on his YouTube channel.

    He's a smart and committed man, and we need more like him in large organizations to push back against whatever the heck this destructive agenda is — that puts judging employees by race and gender, an implicitly racist and sexist ideology in itself, ahead of ability, talent, productivity, innovative ideas, and success.

    I’m 46 minutes into this video. It is outstanding. But, I had to stop to say something. At the point I stopped there was further discussion about Casey Peterson’s encounters with HR at Sandia Nat’l Labs.

    Human Resources, formerly the Personnel Dept. (before they began telling everyone we are not people, but rather expendable resources), is a serious problem that has developed in the past several decades. During that time, HR students, employees and departments have been heavily indoctrinated with all manner of nonsense, wrapped up in phycological and social babble.

    On a personal note, to illustrate the point, about a year ago we hired a new HR person (a younger lady) at law firm where I have worked for nearly 18 years. (I’ve been a lawyer 40 years and counting.) Since then things have gone to Draconian hell.

    About three weeks ago at a video meeting the firm had, the topic turned to cv19 and I spoke up. I merely suggested people investigate the topic for themselves. I also questioned the efficacy of masks; which HR told us we must wear if we come into the office. (Among other things, we are required to email the HR lady telling her when we intend to come in, take our temper when we come in, and then email her our temperature. If we have any symptoms or if in her judgment our temper is too high we must leave the office and see a doctor. I will not follow these protocols.)

    Our spineless CEO, a lawyer at least 20 years my junior in terms of not only legal experience, but world experience (who I mentored and whose ass I saved on many occasions) told me that if I did not stop talking I should resign right now. I was clearly a threat to the official narrative. I have not resigned, and won’t, and they dare not push the issue with me.

    HR people, as well as far too many others, professional, blue collar etc..., never (rarely) stop to think for themselves and research anything. Rather, they swallow the mainstream narrative lock, stock and barrel and then conclude they know all there is to know, not just about the specific topic, but everything else to boot.

    Buckminster Fuller, in his seminal book, Critical Path, and elsewhere, warned us of the dangers of specialization and eschewing general knowledge. Specialization creates a hive mind and shunts thought and creativity.

    I am convinced that the more so-called formal education a person receives the less a person really knows. It takes several decades to shake off the indoctrination and start critically thinking again for one’s self—if that happens at all.

    Could Trump defund the Woke Cult in Canada too... pretty please?

    Just kidding, of course, but I am including this here because I believe that it is relevant to the discussion — in the grand scheme of things — and because it demonstrates that ideological viruses... do tend to ignore borders!

    Trudeau’s race-based entrepreneurship funding is the definition of systemic racism
    by Spencer Fernando, Winnipeg, MB - September 10, 2020


    This is the literal definition of systemic racism, as Trudeau is using government power to create a race-based program designed to benefit one race of people while leaving others out


    The great civil rights leaders of history have consistently focused on bringing people together, rather than tearing people apart. Their core message has been that people must be judged as individuals, rather than by their race.

    After all, people can control what kind of person they are, they can control their actions, they can choose to develop their work ethic, their character, and their reputation.

    By contrast, people can’t chose what race they are.

    For a long time, much of the world (particularly Western nations), have been steadily making progress towards reducing racism and treating people as individuals.

    Our legal system is clear on forbidding racism. Everything that civil rights groups fought for has been now put into law. There are government programs and legal mechanisms that can be used to intervene when racism is found.

    Step by step, we have succeeded in removing race as the key factor in how people treat each other.

    But now, that progress is being put at risk.

    Instead of moving towards a more "colour-blind" society, we are seeing the rise of race-obsessed far-left radicals, pushing things like ‘critical race theory.’

    They are fighting against the very idea of individual rights, against the idea of a "colour-blind" society.

    They are–ironically–often most similar to the virulent racists of the past, who saw everything through the lens of race, feel different racial groups can’t get along, and reject the idea of individual worth.

    For a time, those radical ideas were contained at university campuses, and the broader society continued to reduce the influence of racial judgements in our day to day lives.

    But, like an infection, it has spread.

    Now, our elites and their useful idiots are obsessed with race like never before. They bring it up constantly. All progress is rejected. Our history is under attack. The Western world (rather than accurately being described as the most open and tolerant civilization in history), is recast as nothing but violence and oppression.

    This sick thinking now afflicts the addled minds of our top "leaders," including the Trudeau Liberals.

    Canadian Critical Race Theory
    Racism and the Law

    By Carol A. Aylward



    The growth of the Critical Race Theory genre began in Canada when scholars of colour in Canada began to articulate a dissatisfaction with the existing Canadian legal discourse which failed to include an analysis of the role that “race” and racism has played in the political and legal structures of Canadian society.

    This book is about the role that race and racism play in the theory and practice of law. It shows how Canadian Black lawyers and others are beginning to seriously consider the role of race in litigation and to develop critical race litigation strategies to address the issue. The author documents how a growing body of work designed to move us beyond theory to practical application, is being developed to help recognize the complex relationships among race, racism and the law.
