    Woke Culture Will Strangle Democracy

    The signs are all around us. This list states the obvious.

    1. Woke libs gave Biden a pass on his 5-year campaign of claiming that Trump is not a U.S. citizen, that in fact he was born in 1946 behind a tilsit cheeseworks in Dortmund.
    Fair question: Does a group that supports a pathological liar who tells malicious and easily disproven lies display any judgment of character?

    2. The woke community, so pious about their speech codes, have no problem with Biden's constant name calling, including calling people sons of bitches, little shits, 'dumb as a rock', the scum of the earth, and 'really evil people'.
    Fair question: In their tacit approval of these vicious and immature insults, do the wokes not display a complete lack of understanding of how a President should represent the best and most enlightened qualities of a country?

    3. Wokes claim to promote humanitarian values, but they have no problem when Biden antagonizes our closest NATO allies and then excuses outrages committed by regimes in Russia, Saudi Arabia, and North Korea -- even accepting Putin's denial of election hacking over the assessment of his own intelligence services.
    Fair question: What the fuck?!

    4. Wokes are addicted to a hate-filled blogger called Q-AOC who spreads deranged tales about Trump, Graham, McConnell and Cruz selling pre-teen choir boys at open-air NAMBLA conventions and skinning illegal immigrant babies alive in black magic ceremonies on the roof of Trump Tower, with Ivanka presiding in a spandex thong (and nothing else, not even a bandana.)
    Fair question: Does a group which spreads these stories display even moderate intelligence? the ability to discern reality? clean minds?

    5. Wokes are in thrall to Biden's ridiculous claim that he won in 2020 not by 51.3% but in a massive 67% landslide, and that the GOP worked tirelessly to steal the election. They believe it because Biden rants about it endlessly, even though his surrogates do not dare spout this insanity in open court.
    Fair question: Does this group respect democratic norms?

    6. Their election mania led to blue states crafting law after law specifically designed to discourage white, patriotic citizens from voting.
    Fair question: Is this movement pro-democracy?

    7. The supposedly humanistic wokes sent a mob of undercover Antifa hoodlums to break into the Capitol, shattering windows, kicking in doors, looting, and searching for political enemies to kill. That their intent was murder was clear when they beat a policeman to death. They now claim that Biden's rants had nothing to do with their crimes, that in fact the insurrection was carried out by pro-Trump fanatics.
    Fair question: Should we ever let them live down these appalling, inexcusable crimes?

    Conclusion: I may have misstated a detail or two -- but consider the overall picture, and judge this group by the highest standards we claim as Americans. Can a group which thinks and behaves in such a grotesque manner be anything but a grim foreboding of our future as a democracy?

    Tribalism is one of history’s great destroyers. Once racial, religious, ethnic, or clan ties trump all considerations of merit and loyalty to the larger commonwealth, then factionalism leads to violence, violence to chaos, and chaos to the end of the state itself.
    ...
    that is the first paragraph...
    there are ~29.9 paragraphs...

    Woke is a symptom, not the cause of the slow death of democracy.

    They are happy to encourage the strangulation and will contribute to it.

    Trump was born in the Bronx Zoo in New York City. His father was an Orange Haired Orangutan. He is a US Citizen.
