As Twitchy reported, Bethany Mandel stumbled on Hill TV’s “Rising” with Robby Soave and Briahna Joy Gray when asked to define “woke.” A lot of liberals are taking this opportunity to define for Mandel and other conservatives just what it means to be woke. Touré has said it’s become a slur like the n-word, except it insults LGBTQ folx and other marginalized groups.
Most liberals are proud to be woke, though. Molly Knight, who writes “a newsletter about baseball and mental health,” decided to step into Mandel’s replies and offer the correct definition of woke:
Woke means being aware this country was built on the backs of slaves, that systemic racism still exists, and doing all we can to undo our conscious and unconscious biases to treat all people with the same dignity and respect regardless of their skin color.

But why is it just about skin color? What about fat people?
I’m sorry this is happening to you.

“America was built on the backs of slaves!”
What about German, Italian, and Irish immigrants? What about Asians? There are settlements and cities across this nation that were built by these non-slave owners. But they don’t count because there’s no SJW points to be had there.

You used almost all the big words. Proud of you 👏🏻

Woke does not mean righting past wrongs. It means equality of outcome rather than equality of opportunity. It divides Americans by creating artificial groupings around race, sex and orientation that have little to do with common interests. It is divisive and destructive.

None of which is true. It’s all a lie, just re-packed Marxist boilerplate.

None of what you just said is true.

Right, in other words a radical cult

And most importantly, then being an unreasonable extremist about it

It also means knowing that women have penises and men give birth

I do all that and I’m certainly not woke. Woke = believing in lies such as believing that people can change their gender.
— Torsten Frøling (@torstenfroling) March 15, 2023
Woke means wanting to believe this country was built on the backs of slaves and that systemic racism still exists.

“Woke” = Marxism.
Easy peasy, lemon squeezy.

Comments like this are insufferable. A total lack of awareness for the progress we’ve made here in America — as opposed to other countries where slavery, racism, and sexism run truly rampant. Of course racism exists — in people of EVERY skin color — but we aren’t where we were.

If I understand correctly, woke means mentally delinquent.
Is that correct?

I have both a conscious & unconscious bias against people spewing cultural Marxism couched as racial awareness. Shalom.

So it means being historically illiterate, conspiracy theorizing about modern society and demanding thought control.

How woke can Knight actually be when her definition doesn’t even cover gender-affirming care for children? She seems a little fixed on skin color.
