Woke is Maoism with American Charactetistics
In case you didn’t learn this in school, Mao Zedong led the “cultural revolution” in China. It started in 1966 and lasted until his death in 1976.
It’s reported that he may have been responsible for 40 to 80 million deaths through persecution, starvation, prison labor, and mass executions--all to push his agenda. By all accounts, the cultural revolution was an abject failure.
Mao started out by asking for input on how to make positive change for China. Many responded with requests such as more freedom of speech and freedom of assembly. Mao made a list of those who responded and targeted people for punishment, thus eliminating those who might be a threat to Mao's agenda. Sound familiar?
Millions of Chinese died as a result of Mao's repeated and merciless attempts to create his new China. Anyone who got in the way was done away with—by execution, imprisonment, labor camps, and forced famine. Americans may not literally be dying en masse, but freedom of speech, freedom to decide what one injects into their body, freedom to assemble and protest, and other freedoms are under siege by, well, let's just call them America's woke Maoists--almost entirely the so-called liberal left.
Every day, the Biden administration, DOJ, FBI, and government agencies, in collusion with Big Tech, Big Pharma, and Big Business, demonstrate their quest for their "new Ametica" where they lie, censure, force compliance, silence, call people terrorists, and imprison those who dare speak out against them. The multiple now published "Twitter Files" are just examples proving this to be a fact. The Democrat's "J6 Show" and those still held without bond as insurrectionists demonstrates how far they will go. Does anyone rationally think J6 was an insurrection? Really?
It's absolutely amazing to me the amount of people who can't even sense what's going on and the motivations of those involved. There appear to be plenty of Americans who unknowingly and even out of historical ignorance believe that these Maoist tactics are acceptable, as long as those who differ from their views are silenced—whether it’s Trump, Tucker Carlson, the 12 year old kid who wears a “There Are Only Two Genders” t-shirt to school, or just name any "anti-woke crime." What's going on is nothing short of criminal and insanity. Even one of Biden's appointees said we need to have an all electric military. Does she not know that in war the first thing you do is take-out your opponents infrastructure needed to fight war--like their electrical grid?
So, let's face reality. We have an epidemic of mind control, brain washing, and mental health issues plaguing our country—and those affected have no clue, even those intellectually capable of discerning sanity from insanity.
The trajectory we face is not good. Many would agree. But few will say so in public, afraid to take on the woke and insanity, for fear of being cancelled. Our children’s minds are being hijacked and a free future is what’s at stake.
One's hope that this will go away is not a solution. Sticking one's head in the sand is just cowardly. Doing what we are told by authority is not necessarily the right thing to do. Awakened (not woke) people just have to decide what is needed to stop the insanity and participate in meaningful action and change. So, be brave and participate. Simple as that.
