We broke woke

Conservatives broke woke.

We gave it a cauliflower ear.

Lefties came up with woke to describe everything through the lens of racism. The Oxford English Dictionary in 2017 added this definition to the word, "Alert to injustice in society, especially racism."

At the time, journalist Ann-Derrick Gaillot celebrated and wrote, "Dictionaries don’t create language. Communities of people do."

Now the lefty community has disowned the word it created because the conservative community shoved it right back at them.

Woke is now racist.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeted on November 5, "The average audience for people seriously using the word 'woke' in a 2021 political discussion are James Carville and Fox News pundits. So that should tell you all you need to know."

Carville blamed the Virginia election loss for Democrats on the party being too woke. 

Matt Lewis took her to task for criticizing Carville, writing, "But Carville is in touch with the broader electorate, which is not representative of AOC’s New York district."

Lewis did admit, though, that conservatives killed the word woke.

He wrote, "In fairness, I can understand why AOC and other progressives are unhappy with the way 'woke' has been co-opted. Over the years, a lot of black slang has been absorbed into the mainstream. And usually, that’s all good. But with 'woke,' the term is now being weaponized against the people who coined it."

Weaponized!

Yep.

We mocked the hell out of woke as well as the concept that everything is racist until the word itself -- and the ideology behind it -- became ridiculous in the eyes of the general public.

We had help from AOC.

On May 22, 2019, the New York Post reported, "Bronx-Queens Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has taken aim at cauliflower, claiming that growing the vegetable in community gardens in nonwhite neighborhoods is an act of colonialism.

"'When someone says that it’s too hard to do a green space that grows yucca instead of, I dunno, cauliflower or something, what you’re doing is you’re taking a colonial approach to environmentalism,' the 29-year-old freshman congresswoman says in an Instagram video for her proposed Green New Deal economic-stimulus package.

"'And that is why a lot of communities of color get resistant to certain environmentalist movements — because they come with a colonial lens on them.'"

She's so woke, she won't eat cauliflower.

The story pointed out yucca also is not native to New York, but who needs facts when you are battling racism and colonialism?

OED needs to update its definition of woke to add, "A college student or recent graduate who shows off the ignorance he learned in college."

  1. No, Ms. Occasional Cortex. We see arrogant, Orwellian stupidity for what it is.
    We will fight for the right to call you and your radical leftists on this. Hopefully with the 2022/24 elections..

      Could it be that AOC is actually jealous because cauliflower is smarter than she?

  5. Credit where credit is due, Big D…

    "Do you think that General Patton was woke?" Trump asked the audience. "I don't think he was too woke. I think he was the exact opposite."

    "You know what woke means? It means you're a loser. Everything woke turns to shit. Okay, it's true. It's true. Look at what's happening.”

  6. They auditioned for someone to run in her district and she won the casting call.

    That right there tells you exactly how honest most of her stated beliefs are. She's outright speaking what she's been hired to do.

  7. Cauliflower is from the cruficerous vegetable family, which may very well be the most effective anti carcinogen found in nature

    So obviously, one of the first thing colonial usurpers would do is reduce cancer in the indigenous population so that .. what?.. they could milk 20 extra years of slave labor by increasing the life span of the Oppresed Class?

    Im not following you on this one, Sandy. Enlighten this most Deplorable One

  8. "Man can be defined as an animal that makes dogmas. As he piles doctrine on doctrine and conclusion on conclusion in the formation of some tremendous scheme of philosophy and religion, he is, in the only legitimate sense of which the expression is capable, becoming more and more human. When he drops one doctrine after another in a refined scepticism, when he declines to tie himself to a system, when he says that he has outgrown definitions, when he says that he disbelieves in finality, when, in his own imagination, he sits as God, holding no form of creed but contemplating all, then he is by that very process sinking slowly backwards into the vagueness of the vagrant animals and the unconsciousness of the grass. Trees have no dogmas. Turnips are singularly broad-minded."--G.K. Chesterton, "Heretics"

  11. Whenever people find out what the left truly believes in they change the labels. Liberal becomes progressive, progressive becomes woke, woke will become liberal again. Same failed ideas that lead to misery and genocide whatever you call it.
