Once again, conservatives have turned a innocuous word into some sort of slur. It’s quite the trick how they manipulate language.
They did this with “liberal” and “antifa”. Nowadays, it’s “woke”. This is woke. That’s woke. Woke all the live long day. It’s making me crazy.
How does one become woke? What does it mean, what does it represent?
They’ve been saying it so much that I don’t think they even know what they mean anymore. Being woke, as I understand it, is being sensitive to the trials of other people. It’s really nothing more than walking a mile in someone else’s shoes and trying to do something to lessen the impact upon them.
You are merely culturally aware. That’s all that woke is. What the hell is so bad about that? I dunno, you should ask one of these fucking chuckleheads. The answer may amuse you.
It may be too late for the term woke. Now that conservatives have adopted it as a pejorative, they’ve stripped the meaning out of the word and we all have to listen to them go on and on about it as if it is something to be feared.
I mean, call me fucking woke any day. That’s a compliment. My biggest problem may be that I’m not woke enough.
