Re: Woke?

You may remember the Pope was forced to apologise after quoting from a 14th century text in 2006.

Re: Woke?

I appreciate that I'm very late to this, but isn't just a replacement for "Politically Correct" and nobody could articulate what that meant either. If I've got it right, it means that basically "I should have the right to knowingly offensive if I want to be!"

Re: Woke?

this is too close to the truth......

I used to think I was just a regular guy, but . . .

I was born white, which now, whether I like it or not, makes me a racist.

I am a fiscal and moral conservative, which by today's standards, makes me a fascist.

I am heterosexual which, according to gay folks, now makes me a homophobic.

I am non-union, which makes me a traitor to the working class and an ally of big business.

I am a Christian, which now labels me as an infidel.

I am older than 60, which makes me a useless old man.

I think and I reason, therefore I doubt much that the main stream media tells me, which must make me a reactionary.

I am proud of my heritage and our inclusive British culture, which makes me a xenophobe.

I value my safety and that of my family and I appreciate the police and the legal system, which makes me a right-wing extremist.

I believe in hard work, fair play, and fair compensation according to each individual's merits, which today makes me an anti-socialist.

I believe in the defence and protection of the homeland for and by all citizens, which now makes me a militant.

Now a sick old woman is calling me and my friends a basket of deplorables.

Please help me come to terms with the new me . . . because I'm just not sure who I am anymore!

I would like to thank all my friends for sticking with me through these abrupt, new found changes in my life and my thinking!

I just can't imagine or understand what's happened to me so quickly!

Funny . . . it's all just taken place over the last 7 or 8 years!


As if all this [-Censored-] wasn't enough to deal with, I'm now afraid to go into any public toilet !

@wotsup You failed to correctly identify the author as Daniel Hannan Cheesy

Is that the most constructive comment you can come up with ?

Did I miss an Oxford comma as well ?

Re: Woke?

Well the obvious answer to your first question @wotsup is Yes, otherwise I would have posted it!

Re: Woke?

Something I read earlier which fits the bill; Woke authoritarianism.

Works for me.

Re: Woke?

Had that gone the other way then the 💩 would really have hit the fan.

What an absolute low point it would have been for the sane and sensible it would have been. The summary given by the judge in this case was excellent, unlike the action by some woke Gestapo in the guise of some wooden top constable.

Three cheers for Harry, and let's hope to the Gods that the tide really is turning against this utter nonsense and what was a dangerous threat to free speech and scientific fact.

At least the Judge was bang up to date, quoting two dead people...

Re: Woke?

And two writers who will never be out of date and whose works should serve as a valuable source of reference to those that would deny us our rights by those that would defend them.

Bang on indeed.
