And So Say We All: Seattle Poet Havens Has Had It with Woke Culture and Its Lies

From The Hordes of the Invisible by“ Andy Havens

1. Who is the dominant culture?

As far as I can tell, they are. The sign makers, the book writers, the painters and poets. They’re everywhere. But if their claim is that they are resisting the dominant culture, who is it that’s putting them down?

In light of their inescapable pervasiveness and influence, are they even down at all? If so, who is trying to keep them there? Not the athletes and CEO’s – they’re all on board and applauding. They’re hosting fundraisers and lending their celebrity to “awareness.” (Show me, by the way, the unaware. There must be an odd colony of them somewhere that eats garden slugs and are too cut off from civilization to have heard of sexism or Old White Males or Macklemore).

Corporations have more people in subcommittees working on fair hiring and balancing corporate skin tones than they have working on their actual bottom lines. Are the oppressors the shopkeepers and their customers, who block out the sun with their storefront virtue signals, and curse the planet-eating Republicans over cupcakes as they wipe pureed kale from their baby’s Che Guevara onesie?

Can’t be the teachers and the principals (sorry “Heads of School,” as we can’t say “principal” anymore, and I honestly don’t know why), because they’re as helpful as can be. They organize days for students to leave school to protest climate and corporations (I always thought the protest was supposed to reflect the issue being protested. When I skipped classes, it was to protest school), they encourage multicultural literature and literacy and are leading the way on efforts for diversity and inclusion. And of course the media and the universities, as well as the music and movie industry, they’re so obviously on the right side of this thing that I don’t need to say any more about them.

    As Andy Sullivan put it, “We all live on campus now.” This mentality first appeared in universities about thirty years ago, and has metastasized into the culture at large since.

    Q: Who is the dominant culture?

    A: Why, me, of course. How could it be anything else?

    If anyone has something to say about that they have way too much time on their hands and should be put to work at hard manual labor until such time that they mind their own dam business.

    Yeah, I liked this article as much as you. Very good analysis of how the demand for intolerance makes for intolerance.

    Makes me think of how the last couple of times I spent visiting Seattle made my butt clench tight, and my stomach feel queasy. My distaste for a large majority of those commies is palpable.

    On an up note, I survived my recent trips to the South and to Chicago without much friction. One woman was complaining that nobody dialogued anymore, then followed with how climate change is her top issue. Hmm. I thought the dialogue on that was “settled?”

    Dang. It only took me 4 days to come back on that one.

    This all is circumvented in the short term by the majority living their traditional pedestrian lives until this collective fever of the woke has broke. Then live in freedom out of the cages till the next outbreak of madness scolds them for not hurling their flesh on the Dionysian pyre.

    When it all becomes too much, https://kaching.tumblr.com/ is always a decent place to go to for a brief respite.

    So THAT’S what happens when Gerard gets your piece linked by instapundit. Mother of God.
