This is BY FAR they best book regarding "current affairs" i have read this year. Regardless of the party you affiliate with, this is the book to read. As we have seen recently, even the Democrats are open season for Woke,Inc. Anyone that has read my reviews will know that I am a BIG proponent about making "political affiliation" a protected class. This would fix many problem. The moment that someone takes your MAGA hat or rips off your "Feel the Bern" shirt, that would be considered a hate crime. All we would need is a few sacrificial lambs and people would get the idea real quick.
Woke is a religion of zelots. Companies, including the ones that employ us or the ones that host our blog sites and our social media accounts can wipe you off the face of the earth for something you do on your personal time and when not even on the social media platform. This book does a phenomenal job in exposing the nefarious and duplicitous tactics of the WOKE, Inc.
This cannot continue. Even leftists today, and I mention them by name because they are almost exclusively the leaders of this religion or cult, are waking up to the delosional ways of wokeness.
You have people like Bill Maher and recently Nicki Minaj, with 22 Million followers on Twitter which found herself on the wrong side of the woke crowd for daring to question the woke narrative. She posted one of the best response I have seen from either side.
"Right. I can’t speak to, agree with, even look at someone from a particular political party. Ppl aren’t human any more. If you’re black & a Democrat tells u to shove marbles up ur @$$, you simply have to. If another party tells u to look out for that bus, stand there & get hit"
This cannot continue. The "woke" don't even make sense and there is zero consistency. Examples:
1. Only women can have an opinion on abortion, but "men can have babies" and should be cosidered "birthing person".
2. Equal rights for women, but trans women (biological men) can compete for opportunities specifically set aside for biological women.
3. There is a pay gap for women, but you can identify as a man. Do bilogical men that identify as a woman get paid less?
I have always said that in a feeding frenzy, phiranha will kill each other. This is what will happen to the woke as well. The weapons you arm those you deploy to do your enforcing, will eventually be turned on you.
The author breaks down the legal implecations of the "Woke Religion" and how the Civil Rights act of 1964 and 1968 protect from being persecuted for having a religious belief or DONT follow their religiou beliefs. His comparison of Woke Religion and Christianity is on pointe.
I highly recommend this book. He is a conservative, but only because he slipped it in a couple of times. You can assume he is because he is not WOKE and as I mentioned above, the woke are mostly leftists.
