Non-Woke Left Leaders are as Delusional as their ‘Woke’ Counterparts

As regular readers know, I have a strong distaste and contempt for all ideologies- both traditional and secular. It is my opinion that every ideology, at its core, is a simplistic incomplete worldview which only serves to enrich its own priestly classes and maintain the status quo. Having said that, some ideologies are worse and more dangerous than others. For example, every single religious ideology which pretends to worship the “one true god” has caused far more unnecessary death and suffering than others which don’t pretend to care about such bullshit. Similarly, innocuous sounding ideologies such as LIEbralism are behind an incredible amount of evil- from genocide, race based slavery, colonialism, eugenics etc. And yes.. I can show that LIEbralism has caused many times more deaths than all forms of communism combined.

I have also made it quite clear that I detest all forms of CONservatism and LIEbralism, especially as they exist in western countries. With than in mind, let us talk about the contemporary “left”, specifically its two main branches- the “woke” left and non-woke left. It is, again, no secret that I have never had a great opinion about the “left”- for a number of reasons, ranging from their true motivations and biases, their political impotence, their addiction to virtue display and tendency to repeatedly adopt policies without carefully thinking through their consequences. It is therefore not surprising that center-left parties have lost power and their share of votes in many countries during past 20 years even though the population of those countries detest the right-wing parties currently in power. That is why, for example, Republicans are dominant political party in USA even though most people don’t care their ideology. But try telling that to MikeCA.

Anyway, for a long-time it was possible to believe that a significant part of the left’s failure in this and other western countries was due to contemporary LIEbralism aka “woke” left. And yes, again, there is no real difference between modern LIEbralism and “woke” left. It has however become apparent over the past few years that the non-woke left is as delusional, impotent and protective of status quo as the “woke” left. If this division of the left into “woke” and “non-woke” confuses you, here is a quick explanation. The “woke” left is almost entirely made up of people who pay lip service to a few leftist ideas such as reduction of inequality, worker rights, anti-racism etc but have no interest in changing the status quo. For them, racial equality is achieved when a black transgender “woman” murders a child in Afghanistan instead of some white “cis” man. Similarly sexual equality is reached when a woman CEO screws her employees as badly as her male version. You get what I am saying.. right?

For these scammers, it is all about identity politics on steroids combined with throwing some crumbs to collaborating oppressed minorities and organizing useless symbolic protests such as “pussy hat” marches- along with supporting causes such as “gun control, “environmentalism” etc. They have zero interest in changing the system and would be very unhappy if the problems they rail about (racism, inequality, poverty etc) were actually solved. If you think that this describes the democratic party in this country and center-left in most other western countries- you would be correct. But, some of you might ask.. why do these people persist at playing such a sad and pathetic game if they are not winning power? Well, there are two reasons. Firstly, people in this group are almost exclusively the product of social bubbles and a few educational institutions which demand ideological conformity for its own sake.

The second reason is more interesting and goes something like this.. in most western countries, members of a losing but main-stream party still retain most of the goodies of being in power. Therefore, most of them do not have to worry about trivial stuff as winning or losing elections. Let me remind me you that people like Diane Feinstein, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer or Darrell Issa, Kelly Loeffler, Greg Gianforte will always keep becoming richer (in the current status quo) irrespective of whether they win or lose future elections. And ya.. people such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Barack Obama, Elizabeth Warren are duplicitous grifters just like their established counterparts. With that out of the way, let us talk about the non-woke left. Who are these people and are they even a thing? And where can you find members of this mythical tribe?

The non-woke left is best defined by what they allegedly focus on. For example, the non-woke left cares far more about issues such as reducing income and wealth inequality, universal healthcare, inexpensive higher education, worker’s rights, corporate monopolies and oligopolies rather than stuff like “trans” rights, “cultural appropriation” and “cancellation”. While they may pay lip-service to fashionable “progressive” causes such “tans” rights etc, it is very superficial. A good way to separate the non-woke left from the woke left is to ask whether racial inequality in this country is a race issue or a class issue. Those who say it almost all racism are of the “woke” variety while those who claim it is a class + race issue are of the non-woke left persuasion.

Another favorite question to separate them is as follows: does Immigration depress wages and benefit corporations at expense of workers? If they answer in the affirmative, they are non-woke. Some of might say.. but this does not appear so bad. In fact, these non-woke leftists seem to be fairly reasonable people. A lot of what they want seems very similar to what occurred in this country after FDR pushed the New Deal and similar programs. And you are right, the non-woke left is actually far more reasonable and realistic than phony “woke” left. So why am I saying that they are as delusional as their “woke” counterparts? Well.. it comes down how the non-woke left (more specifically, its leadership) has evolved over past ten years.

Some of you might remember a time when Bernie Sanders (who is currently busy licking the DNC’s soles) stood for policies such as restrictive immigration, opposition to “gun control” etc along with ideas such as higher minimum wages, socialized housing for the poor, singe-payer healthcare, drug decriminalization, corporate monopoly busting etc. So what happened to him and others like him? To make a long story short, leaders of the non-woke left found if far more profitable to be adjunct members of the “woke” left than strike out on their own- regardless of the consequences. The election of Trump in 2016 further sped up the process of non-woke left leaders pretending to be “woke”. But why does any of this matter in 2020 or after that?

A pretty significant minority of voters in this country have positions of the non-woke leftist type. They are often described as socially conservative but economically liberal voters or the opposite of coastal baby-boomers. In most elections, these people will either abstain or vote for democrats. However it has been clear to this group (which is also demographically younger than most) that voting for democrats is not a winning strategy for them. This is why Obama in 2012 (and HRC in 2016) could not get as many votes as he did in 20008. To make matters worse, the democratic party has embraced more and more “woke” positions and performative politics rather than actually delivering even a fraction of what they promise during campaign season.

And here is why it matters.. many younger people (irrespective of race) are not enthusiastic for voting for parties who have no interest in making their lives better. But they will vote for anybody who poses a credible threat to the grim status quo. That is why Trump won all those mid-western states in 2016. To make matters more interesting, recent polls show that even a grade A moron such as Trump has higher popularity among Black and Hispanic people than he had in 2016. It does not take a genius to figure out that this will translate into votes for Trump or, more likely, those people not voting for democratic candidate. Between this, economic fallout from COVID-19 and the fact that Joe Biden has dementia, we might see a far different result on Nov 4, 2020 than what many media pundits are pretending. But it gets worse..

A few republicans such as Josh Hawley, Marco Rubio and Tucker Carlson have already figured out that promising a notionally right-wing but welfare state is an excellent strategy to win future elections. Sure.. it might be just as racially discriminatory as USA during 1940s-1970s, but clearly there is a large audience for that sort of thing. The thing is.. people want to keep their big cars, plastic drinking straws and guns but are also very OK with single-payer healthcare, corporate monopoly busting, inexpensive university education etc. I would not be surprised to see such politicians pushing such policies get the support of a pretty large percentage of the traditional non-voters and disgruntled democrats- and win national elections.

See.. most people want universal healthcare, good jobs and careers, affordable housing and universities, limits on corporate power etc. They do not care about “trans” rights and other fashionable issues, environmentalism which hurts their lifestyle, people pushing new labels like ‘latinX’, cancel culture wars etc. They are tired of performative politics that delivers nothing concrete. Any politician or party faction which appeals to this silent majority (even a little) will win future elections in this country. Based on what I am seeing, it won’t be the democrats, but leaders of the non-woke left are too busy licking the soles of democratic party to figure that out or even care. I am sure that MikeCA has a convoluted rationalization for why it will be different.

What do you think? Comments?

    “I am sure that MikeCA has a convoluted rationalization for why it will be different.”

    LOL.

    Does this blog exist only for my entertainment?

    ” And yes.. I can show that LIEbralism has caused many times more deaths than all forms of communism combined.”

    What has communism got to do with anything?

    Oh, I forgot. You are an old time Russian Intelligence officer that actually listened to Brezhnev 1979 speech:

    https://dissention.wordpress.com/2018/10/06/kavanaugh-confirmation-is-american-version-of-brezhnev-1979-speech/

    That’s why communism matters to you.

    This whole blog post is obviously just the latest Russian propaganda. Thanks for the update on the view from Moscow.

    “A pretty significant minority of voters in this country have positions of the non-woke leftist type. They are often described as socially conservative but economically liberal voters or the opposite of coastal baby-boomers.”

    I think you are a little off here. Specifically as it refers to drug legalization. That would be libertarian, not socially conservative.

    …to work hard and find a wife and have kiddies. And to not worry about my own finances but that I was providing a service to others especially my employer and maybe some money would trickle down and even if it didn’t I wouldn’t be any happier over the 75k mark anyways

    ..and if said wife divorces me and the employer fires me it is because existentially I am bad even thoughI did everything he told me. Pull yourself up by the bootstraps…

    Regarding LIEberals, non woke pay lip service to the woke as you say. I don’t know about the younger crowd of non woke, but I’m certain 40+ of the non woke ilk are too intellectually invested in the idea that woke ideologies are effective ammunition to defend and preserve their status quo. They aren’t willing to don a pussy hat and scream and yell at the government and the public, or tear down a statue of Thomas Jefferson. But they are more than willing for someone else to do it, then pay lip service to the lie that they didn’t condone it. The believe the woke are doing their dirty work keeping “traditionalists” in fear and on the run. The woke are their “cats paws”.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Monkey_and_the_Cat

    This 40+ (and younger I suspect, but haven’t observed) group of non woke will never vote for any republican, even if a republican truly supports the status quo (which all certainly do already, right). They are simply too emotionally invested in NOT voting republican regardless of the candidate and will indulge whatever mental twister game of rationalizations to avoid the pain of loosing that emotional investment, even if a republican candidate actually supports their strongest interests.

    The process is more complex than emotions and the strategies are more complicated than shallow minded emotionalism yet the process and strategies are manipulated to promote both. They apply intellectual complexity to support stupidity, even to their own demise.

    I believe the great majority of non woke 40+, and possibly a considerable number of younger, who will never vote republican are comprised of female democrat voters who are registered both democrat AND REBUBLICAN. You see, voter registration political affiliation does not determine actual votes. If you are a registered democrat, you are not required to vote democrat in a general election but you are also not allowed to participate in republican primaries. There are many who intentionally register as affiliated with one party only to participate in primaries only in order to try to help weak candidates win primaries to increase the likelihood of the party they hate loosing elections. For example, I know several who are registered republicans (they are typically called RINO’s… republican in name only) who vote in republican primaries to support candidates they will never vote for in the general election. They support weak candidates in the primaries hoping the candidates will win the primary so the party they hate (which there is no place for, right?) will lose the general election. These same people financially support candidates in districts and states they do not reside in and cannot legally vote in.

    Add opinion polls, exit polls, the fact that all polls are primarily propaganda and the mass medias incessant attempt to brainwash the populace to this clusterfuck and it’s difficult to accurately predict who and how many will vote for what.

    “I hate LIEberalism and CONservatism but I LOVE SOCIALISM because that’s the only true ideology I believe in.”

    “whether racial inequality in this country is a race issue or a class issue.”

    Racial inequality???? WTF does this mean? Why are there more Whites than Blacks as a population? Are you trying to refer to wealth inequality?

    I like how Corona-chan has overturned some lovely CONservative platitudes, especially with regards to jobs and businesses – in countries that took the virus seriously – like

    1)”Mind your own business” – If you don’t keep a log of who visits your outlets and their temperature, your business license can be revoked and you will not be allowed to continue operations

    2)”Work hard and you will succeed” – If you don’t follow recommended business hours and act as if your business does not need to adhere to government orders, your business license can be revoked and you will not be allowed to continue operations

    3)”Working even when you are sick shows dedication” – The entire company will be fined and shut down if you allow workers with symptoms – regardless of their position in the company – to continue working without the input of licensed healthcare professionals

    4)”Company policies are strictly private and confidential” – If your boss requires workers to ignore or violate government orders as part of business as usual, your business license can be revoked and you will not be allowed to continue operations

    5)”It’s my human right to be in public without a mask” – If you ignore clear and visible government orders you are breaking the law and can expect detention and fines

    6)”You are the only barrier to your success” – Again, working outside the stipulated hours and in a risky manner, your business license can be revoked and you will not be allowed to continue operations

    I wonder what kind of new nonsense platitudes will follow from the debunking of these CONservative cliches due to the new paradigm we find ourselves in.

    Probably along the lines of “Successful people don’t let viruses stop them, they work around the virus”.
