The common ground of the anti-woke movement
Fortunately all of my children finished public school some time ago and happily embrace adulthood with their own families. Still, it would be very disconcerting to hear that the school would sponsor Drag Queen story time or employ a shop teacher with huge prosthetic breasts with projecting nipples all in the name of inclusivity. This nonsense has gone too far for too long and a return to normalcy is badly needed. Keep up the good work and may the force be with you.
There is already a term opposite to 'woke'. It is 'based'. Perhaps inventing a new one, as appealing as 'normie' might be serves to further fragment the anti-woke movement.
I am not sure that 'normal' is a particularly good jump off point, because it is easy prey for relativistic 'point of view' criticism, where 'normativity (ughhhh!) is created as just another 'construct'.
Our statements need to be 'foundational' so that they repel such critique. That is why I talk about 'The Reproductive Center', which means anything else is off center, off biological message and necessarily marginal, and therefore not an 'equal' or 'equivalencable' in value.
Relativism is the nub of the coup that Homosexual and Fellow Travelers' Lobbies (HAFTL) are trying to drive through the entire architecture of institutional discourse, which is also why I also never use or refer to their nomenclature (control of euphemistic and dysphemistic language categories) such as 'Gay' (fun loving) or 'Lesbian' (classical mythologic) or 'trans' (no such thing).
The whole HAFTL edifice depends on the fantasization of sex by overriding its fundamental biological purpose. And it gets traction because that view is completely synonymous with the wider operations of its Indulgence Capitalist host, whereby a disciplined needs and wants economy, culture and collective imagination (consciousness) has been subsumed by ones that construct overriding (but completely inconsequential) fantasies of desire and their immediate satiation, as not only the mainstay of the system, but increasingly in the absence of industrial manufacture, the fantasy it produces. It is the primary production product whose outputs are not merely things-in-themselves, but overwhelmingly, imaginary icons.
That is why one cannot get real sense out of Wokes beyond their cliches, euphemisms, dysphemism, stereotypes and slogans. They are 'Toon participants in their own ideological comic fictions, which is a polite way of saying they have disappeared up their own arses.
We have to become fundamentalists who are prepared to abandon the fantastical fictions of late modern societies and go back to the basics of what life is really about and what society is supposed to accomplish in reproducing itself reliably, using the best possible quality templates, values and practices it can, to build the best possible quality of intergenerational social 'product'.
Fundamentalism is the logical answer to relativism because it completely resyructures the structure and dynamics of discourse from defense to attack, as we redefine its landscape, not The Woke.
The common ground of the anti-woke movement is Karl Marx's "class struggle" manifesto thesis. According to Marx, every civilization in recorded history has an oppressor class and oppressed class, or plural variations of class struggles. When the oppressor class is one race and the oppressed class or classes are another race or races, then we have the proverbial "systemic racism" for which modern activists are continually seeking apologies, reparations and/or cancellations.
The modern variation of "class struggle" Marxism is White, Patriarchal Males, exploiting/oppressing BIPOC, anarchical, gender-fluid-and/or-female folks. The "common ground" is any so-called "victim" of a white patriarchal male. In sum, when you come out of the closet, whether closet-Marxist or closet anything else, that doesn't mean that you stop "dressing up", as something that you are not, which, in these modern cases is --- as a "victim" of hate.
We had a potentially interesting case, in Calgary Alberta, Canada, recently. Some evangelical type/s protested a Drag Queen Story-Telling event at a local Calgary Public library. There was "on record" a definite female voice saying "I'm going to call the police." as part of a report that someone had been arrested for mischief or causing a disturbance or whatever the charge was. That's when any "normal" person who is being careful to simply protest and NOT DEMONSTRATE HATE, should counter-charge whoever calls the police with their own counter-charge of public mischief. Public mischief is quote:
Section 140. CRIMINAL CODE OF CANADA: (1) Everyone commits public mischief who, with intent to mislead, causes a peace officer to enter on or continue an investigation by (a) making a false statement that accuses some other person of having committed an offence; (b) doing anything intended to cause some other person to be suspected of having committed an offence that the other person has not committed, or to divert suspicion from himself; (c) reporting that an offence has been committed when it has not been committed; or (d) [false report of a death KB] (2) Everyone who commits public mischief (a) is guilty of an indictable offence and liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding 5 years; or (b) is guilty of an offence punishable on summary conviction. [END quote]
All these claims of not "feeling safe" or being "victims of hate", or that anyone who disagrees with them is either a racist or a homophobe or an oppressor are simply false "dress-up" statements. When normal people "push-back", they tend to overreact --- which is the entire point of "gay outrage" activism or road-blocking activism or whatever kind of activism. The point is to provoke an over-reaction and, thus, bogusly "demonstrate" the hatred of the "oppressor".
So keep calm when you counter-protest and NEVER play "defense" in any subsequent legal proceeding --- lawyers make a fortune from most people's ignorance of the law. Every law suit and even every prosecution is an opportunity to either counter-sue or even counter-prosecute all the enemies of so-called "normal" people or "commoners" --- which is why it is called British Common Law in Canada and other former colonies of Great Britain. However, when actually guilty, then plead guilty and throw yourself upon the mercy of the Court --- you'll save a lot of money on legal fees!!!
