Welcome to WokeWorld… where none of the above is considered to be violence. (That designation is reserved for barbarous practices like uttering the word “woman.”) You would think that — given the events of the past 5-6 years — the left would be having a remarkably easy time creating a safe landing spot for anyone sickened by Trump’s antics. On the contrary, the #woke crowd has created its own repellent counter-cult. To belong to either hive mind, you must diligently repeat the deceptive mantras proscribed by your algorithmic news feeds. Dissent = cancellation.
If it looks like a cult and feels like a cult...
Suggestion: If it’s justice and integrity you seek, stay far, far away from either pole of current American ideology. Instead — regardless of where you currently stand on any of the issues of the day — embrace the subversive adventures of nuance and context.
