Left is co-opting the "woke" term. WTF?
The other day I saw a car in traffic with a "resist" bumper sticker, and another sticker beneath it reading: "stay woke." My first reaction was laughter - because if you are still "resisting," then you most definitely are not woke, as the slang term is understood in the Trump era political vernacular. On the contrary, resistors are still very much asleep in an ambien-induced coma under a blanket of leftist comfort lies.

Example: Hungary and it's current leader is definitely a nation accurately described as woke, while Germany is not - though it may be be very slowly awakening.

Then the other day I see Tucker Carlson interviewing some left wing thot attempting to seize the mantle of "woke" and apply it to leftism. Apparently there are leftist oriented t-shirts to this effect also.





Anyone else noticing this trend?

Woke = waking up from the decades-long slumber of global homosexual influence and control, often by proxy. The term should not fall victim to yet another shitlib wordsmith modification.

So stay woke!

Seems like they're buying the term and I've seen it in comments sections, the pill term is still better, woke is generic as hell sounds like "tm" tradmark, and has no sub cultures so to speak, in contrast to this, which accurately describes actual human emotions and stages

Red Pilled: Reality, Harsh.

Blue Pilled: Delusion, Fantasy.

Black Pilled: Despairing, giving up letting it all got to fuck and looking out for yourself.

White Pilled: The opposite of the black, a hope, a victory, a light in the dark, surprising.

Purple Pilled: You've been red pilled, but still live blue pill because you know you're not strong enough to live the way you know you could.....essentially you wish you could be plugged back in and forget.

Its hard to stake woke when you have never woke up in the first place.

There is nothing else you will ever need to read on self improvement, but this, the greatest thread post in history follows in the link below, REQUIRED READING. READ TO END.

I seriously thought "woke" was a soyboy orbiter term for a progressive male to insinuate he was a good feminist ally. That is how I have heard the term being used by them.

RE: Left is co-opting the "woke" term. WTF?
Woke was already utilized by the left and then appropriated by the right in a much more significant manner. It's the same with "triggered." It started with the left, then the right started using it where it really picked up more popularity with memes. The left then tried to take it back and use it against the right which failed.

RE: Left is co-opting the "woke" term. WTF?
The only explanation I find for its origin is on Merriam Webster's "Words We're Watching" site, and I can barely read it without rolling my eyes, but something jumps out at me:

Quote:Like many other terms from black culture that have been taken into the mainstream, woke is gaining broader uses. It’s now seeing use as an adjective to refer to places where woke people commune: woke Twitter has very recently taken off as the shorthand for describing social-media activists. The broader uses of woke are still very much in flux, and there are some who are woke to the broader implications of woke

So it's basically a not-small amount of prim, self-righteous white people bandying about a word that black people came up with and applying it to all matters "SocJus". Isn't this "gaining broader uses" bullshit technically more of that cultural appropriation the far left is always hectoring us about?

I dunno, something about it just seems a little...problematic.

RE: Left is co-opting the "woke" term. WTF?
Millenials and lefties love using black ghetto terms like 'woke'. They think it's cool and funny in an ironic way. They will overuse this word until it becomes just as uncool as everything else they do.

RE: Left is co-opting the "woke" term. WTF?
It’s kind of like their version of “red-pilled”. It means being aware of the “white man keeping them down”.

If only you knew how bad things really are.

"Woke" is a retarded word dreamt up by large teams of media teams similar to "throwing shade" (worst slang ever.)

RE: Left is co-opting the "woke" term. WTF?
Woke as an adjective is an american black english term that gained popularity in the black lives matter movement. It has nothing to do with 'red pill' terminology. The past participle of an intransitive verb as an adjective is a common transformation in black english but is not standard english (the adjective is 'awake').

RE: Left is co-opting the "woke" term. WTF?
It was started by Black Lives Matter types like Tariq Nasheed. Then white liberals started saying it mostly as a way of signalling their solidarity with black people. That's when it started becoming mainstream, as the BLM types got mad at their slang being co-opted. There were a bunch of articles that came out saying white people shouldn't be saying it. That MTV video with 'suggestions' for white men included as one of its tips not to say how woke you were.

I think after that it got integrated into the meme war by our side, which means the left has lost control of it forever, just like fake news, triggered, shitlord and so forth.

Well, no shit - I realize it's horribly bad grammar and carries self-aware hip hop references common with SWPLs. Even so, I've commonly seen it in the twitter-sphere in the alt-ish right. Not sure if Matt Forney himself ever used it but other personalities in the nationalist political discussions definitely have.

Nevertheless, it remains true that to be awake from the half century of American slumber is the exact opposite of the "resist" faggotry. Resistors by definition would have preferred a continued, even deeper sleep until the pulse of the nation itself slipped away.

RE: Left is co-opting the "woke" term. WTF?
Woke comes from Hotep/Afrocentric/Black Nationalist Muslim types. As for if it meant being aware of your ancestry or the white man's agenda to trap you, I would not know which came first. There is maybe 5-10% Red Pilled awareness in it, conversely in the form of Illuminati and Jew Question/Agenda on black musicians/entertainers. Some were using it to point out Satanic subversion in the Black Hollywood figures like those early videos about LL Cool J, Jay Z, and others throwing Baphomet horns at people to curse others in the crowd and other masonic gesture junk. Some of these things we even talk about.

Lately though it looks like liberal whites have co-opted their own word for political correctness like the OP talks about. I have noticed this in the last 1-2 years. Bitten by their own snake. Good for them.

In the Manosphere, we really don't use this term, usually in a mocking way. Red-Pill describes us way better than woke does. Like woke implies, it is just merely awake. You are just "in the game". Red-Pill means you just exited the game on your own terms with full awareness and the power to operate outside of the world's implied limits.

Wow, I never knew shitlord was originally a leftist insult. Though, it bares some of the hallmarks of two words merged together in cringeworthy fashion (this happens in Britain with terrible phrases like "cockwomble"... urgh) like "douche nozzle" etc. The modern left is deeply, deeply uncool like RedPillUK said. If the Sex Pistols came out tomorrow, they'd sing songs in support of Trump, make fun of Islam etc... the puritans moved from the religious right to the progressive left.

Woke is a good term for theirs:

And the best part is that he is actually New Agey and a bit to the left - he just has enough common sense and humor about it all - understanding all the wokeness out there - not taking himself too seriously.

Seems like they have been using it for a while...it seems the use I usually see is the "everything is racist/white people's fault" - STAY WOKE and waste your days finding bigotry and racism where none exists and bitch about it on Twitter... like McInnes said (I think) - the supply of racism does not meet the demand so you gotta create it

BTW...found this today, it's pretty funny. Spinoff of Clickhole (onion-esque satire clickbait site) called ResistanceHole spoofing Buzzfeed style FUKKEN DRUMPF articles.

Didn't want to start a new thread, thought this was relevant here. It seems the left is now consciously trying to steal the thunder of the right in the cool meme stakes, going so far as to appropriate our language.

They are trying to add a spiritual dimension to their politics, woke being the cool person's slang for enlightened.

They have always done this. It's like a guy who buys a cool dog and thinks some of the coolness transfers to him because he isn't cool enough on his own.

They can't stand on their ideas so they try to give them a spiritual vibe.

In the early 70's the feminists didn't say they were trying to persuade you of their politics, they said they were engaged in consciousness raising.

Slang changes, strategy stays the same.

The BBC video in here is suprisingly funny. Unfortunately there isn't a YT link.

https://www.dailywire.com/news/32346/wat...frank-camp

Quote:On Friday, BBC Two’s Facebook page uploaded a hilarious video from Tracey Ullman in which the British comedian plays the leader of a "woke" support group.

Ullman begins:

Okay everyone, welcome. This support group is for people who are so woke, they are finding it impossible to have any fun at all.

She proceeds to introduce a new member, and the genius flows from there. To say anything more would be to ruin it for first time viewers.

As every invention and internet discussion can be traced back to the 3rd Reich.
What being woke means and where it comes from is answered by this song used by the paramilitary entourage SA of the NSDAP.
So if some Lefty ever talks about being woke you can accuse him of being a Nazi. Smile

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sturmlied
Storm! Storm! Storm! Storm! Storm! Storm!
Ring the bells from tower to tower!
Ring until sparks begin to fly,
Judas appears to win the Reich!
Ring until the ropes turn red from blood,
With only burning, torture and murder around,
Ring the storm until the earth rises,
Under the thunder of liberating vengeance!
Woe to the people that is still dreaming today!
Germany, awaken! Awaken!
