If you scratch beneath the surface of this supposedly monolithic “woke culture”, you’ll find is not this singular, unstoppable force but a tapestry of temporarily alliances, each having their own focal points that they are dealing with.
From the outside, it only looks as if it’s all one big monolith but it’s not.
It’s like me judging anybody who liked even a part of Bill Maher and assuming they must like most or all of Bill Maher – or WOULD agree with all he said if he said it the right way.
But you see, the judgement hammer is put down. There is apparently this monolith called WOKE CULTURE and it is BAD.
You don’t have to justify to me liking Bill Maher in any parts. You like it. It’s your thing. It’s not my thing. The way he drips with sarcasm grates against me like a sarcastic Southern Baptist preacher talking about Obama.
I’ve tried. I watch and I ask myself “Where’s the funny?” I find lots of things funny, just not Maher.
but that’s taste. It’s your taste for comedy and that’s fine.
But the notion of “woke culture”, despite everybody from bill maher to fox to oann and pat robertson and half of youtube and twitter constantly complaining about it – it’s just a substitute term for complaints about the same ideologies, social causes and groups of people for many decades.
