Politicians have developed this weird idea that they get to issue orders to their constituents, who they feel should just stay out of the political process. Last week the serfs rebelled. From Robert Bridge at strategic-culture.org:
The woke flag may be flying high inside of Democratic headquarters, but in towns and cities across America it looks every bit as ominous as the appearance of a Jolly Roger on the horizon.
The Democratic Party will be tempted to blame their recent crash and burn on the monument to national embarrassment that is Joe Biden, but that would be missing the wider picture, which is that most Americans find woke politics absolutely repulsive.
Just one month ago, few people believed that Republican Glenn Youngkin, a former business executive and newcomer to the political jungle, had any chance of beating Democrat Terry McAuliffe in Virginia’s high-stakes race for governor. But then McAuliffe laid his woke cards face up on the table and it was game over.
The revelatory moment came last month during the gubernatorial debate when the candidates were asked how much influence parents should have in their children’s education. Before revealing McAuliffe’s rather predictable answer (hint: he’s a woke liberal), it is important to note that school board meetings are no longer the monotonous cures for insomnia they once were. Rather, they have become major social events where parents confidently take the podium to harangue school officials over the progressive perversities now being taught in the classroom.
