On wokeism, critical race theory, cancel culture and socialism

     On Tuesday, the Defense Department chiefs, the Secretary of Defense and the Chief of staffs went before the House appropriations   committee to make their annual case for their now almost a trillion dollars budget.

      Republican committee members, especially the little pipsqueak, Matt Gaetz from Florida, a man with a case of pedophilia hanging over his head, took the opportunity to ask General Austin, the secretary of the defense department and a Black man unrelated questions. He diverted the hearing to talking about “wokeism, critical race theory and cancel culture and socialism.

     He was saying that if Austin and his department had not been wasting their time teaching wokeism, critical race theory and canceling culture, and socialism that the US military would have been more prepared and would have not overestimated the capability of the Russian military.

    Apparently, US intelligence agencies expected Russia to win the war in Ukraine in a couple of days but a month later they have not even gained significantly in the country, thus, we overestimated the fighting ability of Russia.

   Didn’t Sun Tzu, in the Art of war, ask us to overestimate our enemies to be better prepared for them?

     Nevertheless, we did accurately predict that Russia was going to invade Ukraine despite her denials, her ruse of merely engaging in military exercises (which many Republicans, especially those at Fox News, in their blind admiration of Putin, bought).

     Anyway, this little empty-headed Republican, Gaetz, tried his best to make the hearing all about what he believed would help his Republicans win the coming November election, criticizing wokeism, critical race theory and cancel culture and socialism.

      These Republicans are totally deranged.

      What exactly is wrong with people awakening to the fact that they are oppressed in a society that oppresses them; are they supposed to pretend that an oppressive society is heaven?

     What is wrong with teaching about racism, are Black folks supposed to ignore that fact? White folks have forever tried to cancel Black people’s existence and relegated Black folks to invisible status in the land and now pretend that Black folks are trying to cancel culture them.

     For good measure they claim that Black people are trying to bring about socialism in the country.

      Listen, whereas socialism, so far, has led to authoritarian governments in Russia, China and Cuba that does not mean that there is nothing good in it.

      I am a social democrat and make no apology for it. The wealth of the land must be used to help the poor by giving them education through university and giving all people publicly paid health care.

       If you do not like that aspect of socialism, you are not only not a Christian but an evil person.

     It is now time that we called Republicans what they are, evil incarnate. We should stop pussyfooting with them and tell them, to their faces, who they are.

Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines woke as:

Woke is now defined in this dictionary as “aware of and actively attentive to important facts and issues (especially issues of racial and social justice),” and identified as U.S. slang. It originated in African American English and gained more widespread use beginning in 2014 as part of the Black Lives Matter movement. By the end of that same decade, it was also being applied by some as a general pejorative for anyone who is or appears to be politically left leaning.

Wikipedia defines critical race theory as:

Critical race theory (CRT) is a cross-disciplinary intellectual and social movement of civil-rights scholars and activists who seek to examine the intersection of race, society, and law in the United States and to challenge mainstream American liberal approaches to racial justice.

Dictionary.com defines cancel culture as:

a social environment in which publicly boycotting or withdrawing support for people, organizations, etc. regarded as promoting socially unacceptable beliefs is widespread practice:

“there’s a middle ground between cancel culture and free speech absolutism”

Dictionary.com defines socialism as:

a political and economic theory of social organization which advocates that the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated by the community as a whole.


     I would like someone with any kind of brain in his head to tell me what is wrong with the above four concepts. Apparently, Republicans, like Putin’s Russia, want all Americans to give up on thinking and, instead, embrace the brain-dead ideas of the great thinker called Donald Trump. Trump’s level of education is no more than fourth grade and Republicans want him to tell us what is good for us.

     What exactly is the matter with Republicans, have they all lost it all, become deranged or are they merely playing games with American politics?

     Are folks now supposed to be sheep and simply follow where Republican idiots are leading the country… to hell?

     Just look at Republican superstars, such as Marjorie Taylor Greene, does she even have any brains in her skull?

     Good God, what has happened to the Party of Lincoln? What we are witnessing is how political parties die and sadly also how nations die.

     We are seeing Russia in her death throes and the Republicans mistaking the mirage of power as real power admire Putin; like Russia, a little war would bring about their demise, as Ukraine is showing Russia as an empty vessel.
