Wokeism may be the biggest threat to America outside of Marxism.
That’s not a joke or an over-exaggeration.
While Marxism may be the ultimate goal for the Left, the vehicle in which they’re trying to take to get there is wokeism.
What’s funny is, five years ago, nobody knew what the term “woke” meant. No one had ever really used it in the everyday diction of our society…
In fact, Merriam-Webster has recently had to create a definition for the word in order to help Americans understand what it means.
Have you seen it?
“Woke” is an adjective meaning “aware of and actively attentive to important facts and issues (especially issues of racial and social justice).”
It’s an awareness, yes…
But even more, it’s an outrage against perceived injustice, although there is no way to quantify what actually constitutes “injustice.” There’s also no good way to tell whether all perceived injustices should be given the same weight.
Because that’s what happens. Whether an “injustice” is deliberate or accidental, major or minor, they’re all weighed the same and the punishment is always the same: complete and total cancelation.
Anybody that is responsible for one of these “atrocities” has their careers ruined and their online accounts suspended, becoming persona non-grata, especially among the Leftist elite.
Though, if you’re a Democrat, you seem to be able to get away with these injustices, as evidenced by the way the Left treats Joe Biden’s overt racism.
Cancel Culture: A Symptom Of Wokeism
However, as much as the social implications of wokeism impact our country, there’s an even BIGGER and more dangerous effect that it is having that has more to do with our government than our social lives
You see, wokeism has infiltrated our nation’s legislative bodies and is now starting to shape and sculpt our laws and policies, paving the way for Marxism to roll in smoothly.
You may or may not have heard about a New York Democrat in Congress who introduced a bill to change the motto of the Veteran’s Association to be more “inclusive,” but it’s absolutely ridiculous on multiple different levels.
The first and most obvious level is that Congresswoman Kathleen Rice has never served in the military and wouldn’t know the extent of what these brave men and women have endured.
I introduced a bill to update the VA motto to be inclusive of women & LGBTQ veterans.

On top of that, the words she wants to change in the VA’s motto are those of Abraham Lincoln.
Right now, the motto is: “To fulfill President Lincoln’s promise ‘To care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan’ by serving and honoring the men and women who are America’s veterans.”
Again, spoken by ol’ Honest Abe himself…
But now, Rice and several other Democrats (and, unfortunately, even a few Republicans) are supporting legislation to rewrite the VA’s motto, removing the pronouns “him” and “his” in order to change them to be more “inclusive of women and LGBTQ veterans.”
What do they want it say now?
Well, Rice and company want to change Lincoln’s words say “To fulfill President Lincoln’s promise to care for ‘those’ who shall have borne the battle and for their ‘families, caregivers, and survivors’ by serving and honoring the men and women who are America’s veterans.”
Conservatives Aren’t Woke… They’re Scared
With all the things plaguing our nation right now, THIS is what this Congress member chooses to concentrate on?
Not the fact that there are millions of Americans out of work, hundreds of thousands illegal immigrants coming to our country, inflation raising its ugly head, and a foreign policy debacle in Israel?
This is what they’re choosing to waste their time on?
This is a problem…
And the thing is, GOP members have to vote for it—because if they don’t, the Left will use it as election fodder in order to show their constituents that the Republicans “don’t care” about female/LGBTQ veterans.
And that’s the REAL problem.
Republicans are being forced to comply with woke legislation in order to stay on the right side of activists—and this is what’s going to allow Marxism to TRULY take over our country.
Make no mistake, these kinds of incidents will be happening more and more as Conservatives begin to fear for their political careers and will vote to support idiocy like this.
This is where it’s going to hurt us the most…
And it should make each and every one of us angry.
“Unlike Marxism, the Leninist one-party state is not a philosophy. It is a mechanism for holding power. It works because it clearly defines who gets to be the elite – the political elite, the cultural elite, the financial elite.” – Anne Applebaum
