The joke heard round the world of the woke

A reporter at The Washington Post rants for days on end over an off-color joke, attacking her colleagues and the company she works for in public, and playing the victim card while another is suspended without pay for a quickly deleted retweet followed by a prompt apology.  How long can any institution last when the… Continue reading The joke heard round the world of the woke

Amazon’s woke take on Tolkien provokes another racial controversy

The announcement that there will be elves, dwarves, and other species of color prompts Tolkien purists to claim Amazon Studios is destroying the franchise, which of course prompts accusations of racism and bigotry from the usual suspects.  Of course, few bother to consider that elves and dwarves aren’t real and aren’t human at all… Last… Continue reading Amazon’s woke take on Tolkien provokes another racial controversy

Dune and the inescapable insanity of woke art criticism

Dune is a good film and an even better book, but that’s not enough in the year 2021.  It isn’t a “white savior” narrative either, though someone, somewhere said it might be.  Therefore, the woke have no choice but to act as if it is, even as most of them know it’s not.  And don’t… Continue reading Dune and the inescapable insanity of woke art criticism

For argument’s sake, let’s… Continue reading Racism is real: What can we do about it?

The woke can’t even stand the woke, but that’s not even the worst part of what’s coming

Lin-Manuel Miranda prostrating himself before the woke crowd for not being woke enough is this week’s entertaining aside, but the real fight is over the nature of truth and traditional liberal values like equality before the law, free speech, and the free exchange of ideas.  The battle lines are being drawn and the mainstream media… Continue reading The woke can’t even stand the woke, but that’s not even the worst part of what’s coming

Emily Ratajkowski: A single article in Vogue encapsulates the many confusions, or should I say insanities, of our elites

There’s nothing worse than a white man sleeping, we can’t bring more white men into the world, and we should all choose our genders at age 18.  Oh, and women comparing themselves to other women is now misogyny.  It’s as if some woke supercomputer wrote this tripe... Rarely does one article, written by a supermodel… Continue reading Emily Ratajkowski: A single article in Vogue encapsulates the many confusions, or should I say insanities, of our elites
