Awake Rather Than Woke

Are you "woke"?

This is how the Merrian-Webster defines the word that is increasingly used in our society today.

You are woke if you believe that the Black Lives Matter organization cares more about racial injustice than it does about creating promoting a socialist agenda, racial division and raising money.

You are woke if you believe that the percentage of mixed race marriages in advertising today is in any way representative of the real world.

You are woke if you believe birthing people have babies rather than women.

You are woke if you believe that millions of people were assigned a gender at birth that is contrary to their biological DNA.

You are woke if you believe it is perfectly fine for biological males to compete with females in athletic competitions due to their "identity".

If you are not woke you are cancelled, censored or called out as racist, homophobic, misogynistic or a fascist.

However, I am seeing a few things recently that the tide may be starting to turn a bit.

More people are starting to look like they are "awake" to reality rather than "woke".

They understand the actual facts on some of the issues that surround the "woke" movement.

For example, net support for Black Lives Matter among voters has dropped by 25 points over the last two years.

More voters now oppose BLM than support it.

Part of this seems to be due to reports that BLM secretly bought a $6 million mansion in Los Angeles and other big spending items by its co-founders to relatives and the like.


This was after BLM's co-founder resigned last May after reports she had purchased three homes in Atlanta and another one in LA.

This was in addition to a number of other insider payouts involving the co-founders of BLM as reported by The New York Post.

The adage “wherever there is power, greed and money, there is corruption,” seems to ring true for Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors.

As The Post reported last week, Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation tax documents filed (years late) with the IRS show Cullors used BLM funds to pay her graffiti-artist brother a whopping $840,000 for “security” services to the nonprofit and $970,000 to a company owned by her child’s father for “creative services.” Nepotism much?

Oh, and the foundation’s biggest single payout, over $2.1 million, went to a consulting firm owned by another of its current board members, Shalomyah Bowers.


Many have also concluded that the primary goal of Black Lives Matter--to defund the police---was not a very good idea.

For example, the Council on Criminal Justice reported that homicides in 22 major U.S. cities in 2021 were up 44% over 2019 levels.

A record number of homicides occurred in 12 cities. A number of these cities were the focus of major BLM protests to defund the police.


Black shooting victims are up 144% and Black murder victims are up 81% since 2019.

When you are awake and not woke you tend to come face to face with facts and reality.

One of the more interesting examples of someone becoming "awake" is noted liberal personality Bill Maher.

He did a monologue last week asking what is going on with LGBTQ? (Use this link if you can't open the video below in your browser)

Maher asks a lot of serious questions but he is also does it with a great deal of  humor.

The video is aboutr nine minutes long. It is well worth watching.

Maher cited this polling data that tracks the percentage of Americans who self-identify as LGBTQ.

He said that the percentage seems to be doubling every generation.

This is science?

He also joked that at this rate everyone will be gay or trans by 2056.

Maher also asked what is going on with all the "trans" issues with children?

If this is "science" why do we see this trend at much higher rates in California than we do in Ohio?

Is there a lot of suppression of LGBTQ in Ohio or is there social contagion in California?

For example, consider these children of various Hollywood celebrities.

Is there something in the water that makes these children want to dress like this?

Is this science or a way to show you are woke?


Charlize Theron actually adopted two sons who both now identify as girls. 

This person on Twitter asks what are the odds?

Awake or woke?

Someone should also check the water in Seattle.

A high school in Seattle reports that 80% of its students identify as LGBTQ+, nonbinary and transgender.


If you look at the mission statement of Nova High School there might be a hint that this has not resulted from science or water. There is something else going on.

This is what it means to be woke.

Are you awake yet?

I will conclude with one more tweet that puts this into a little better perspective.

It is a lesson that the world is not always as we want it to be.

We may be woke but there are a lot of people in this world that have no idea what that is.

There is a raw reality in the world that many cannot comprehend in the sheltered existence that so many who have been raised in the United States of America.

It is hard to survive in that world be being woke when you need to be awake.

I could not help but laugh at this tweet.

Awake indeed.
