By now many have heard the terms "woke" and "cancel culture," where those that consider themselves "woke" think they are morally superior and have the right to demand others conform to their way of thinking which they believe is more enlightened than the rest of the "peasants," and they form online, or offline mobs," to boycott or "cancel" out those accused of wrong-think for not being "woke" enough, even when those being "canceled" are basically on the same side as those attempting to "cancel" them.
While we have seen the "get woke, go broke" phenomenon with Gillette jumping on the "woke" train by attacking their number one demographic of customers, men, by treating masculinity as "toxic," then seeing not an organized boycott but an independent grass roots movement where Americans just switched brands and cost them approximately $5 billion in losses. We saw Dick's Sporting Goods joint he social justice warrior crowd in their gun grabbing and gun control efforts, and they are still bleeding profits because of that "woke" decision.
What we are seeing now is that the left is cannibalizing themselves as their "wokeness" are taking down their own allies.
The problem the perpetually outraged crowd that is seemingly addicted to outrage, is they eventually run out of things to be outraged about regarding the party they oppose and they then turn their rage onto their own allies for any perceived slight or wrong-think.
How dare him not be woke enough!!!!!!!!!!!??!!!!!!!!!
The fact is, perpetual outrage was always going to turn back against the "woke" crowd that started it.
TOO LITTLE, TOO LATE: OBAMA TRIES TO PUT THE GENIE HE RELEASED, BACK INTO THE BOTTLE
Barack Obama is not solely responsible for the age of "cancel culture," but for a man who infamously said to "Get in their face" about his political opponents, among other examples of him pushing "wokeness" and the "cancel culture," he bears some responsibility of what we are seeing today, which makes it incredibly ironic that he has recently informed said "woke crowd" to "get over it," and to stop with the outrage mobs and cancel culture.
While his message is spot on.... below the clip of his statement, we will show an excellent thread showing that Obama himself engaged in the cancel culture throughout his presidency, but now that he is sitting back and watching radical liberals and moderate Democrats cannibalizing themselves, he is attempt to put that genie back into the bottle as his party is starting to implode.
“One danger I see among young people particularly on college campuses — Malia and I talk about this — I do get a sense sometimes now among certain young people, and this is accelerated by social media, there is this sense sometimes of the way of me making change is to be as judgmental as possible about other people and that’s enough,” Obama continued. “Like if I tweet or hashtag about how you didn’t do something right, or use the wrong verb then I can sit back and feel pretty good about myself, ‘Cuz man, did you see how woke I was? I called you out! Let me get on TV, watch my show, watch Grown-ish.'”
“That’s not activism. That’s not bringing about change,” Obama concluded. “If all you’re doing is casting stones, you’re probably not going to get that far. That’s easy to do.”
Sounds good, but Obama always did talk a good game, while doing everything in his power to destroy others.
Breitbart News author and commentator John Hayward put together and excellent thread with a list of examples, showing Obama as the hypocrite he is. The entire thread is over at Twitchy, but some of the key points are listed below.
• This is well said, and I truly don't want to detract from how well he said it, but I must point out that Obama's brand of messianic populism was a major ingredient in the development of today's cancel culture.
• Everyone who criticized Barack Obama was portrayed as evil, driven by greed, racism, or money from their sinister corporate puppet masters. His early statements as president literally included telling his critics to shut up and go to the back of the bus.
• Obama's political machine infamously created a website called Attack Watch that gave his followers a Soviet-style mechanism for reporting friends and family members who were spreading "falsehoods" about his policies.
• Obama and his supporters constantly insinuated, or outright stated, that criticism of him was "hate speech." A major feature of cancel culture is the belief that hate speech should not be protected as free speech. It is arguably the core belief of the New Censors.
An outstanding response from a random Twitter user perfectly captures what Obama is trying to do, now that the "woke" and "cancel culture" crowd is turning on one another instead of just their political adversaries, as 'Frankly Perturbed' responds to Hayward's thread, stating "He's trying to put the genie back in the bottle. Someone should have explained that to him before he let it out."
"Woke" liberals have gone as far with the "cancel culture" against conservatives as they can go and have now set themselves up into a circular firing squad which randomly targets other liberals that dare break their increasingly growing list of "wrong-think" positions, to the point where they are opening firing against each other.
Barack Obama sees the direction this is going and is attempting to put the genie he released, back in the bottle before he has to watch his whole party implode.
It is doubtful his words will have any effect, and we would not be surprised in the least if liberals turned their outrage against him for daring to state the obvious.
Language Alert for the clip below as commedian Dave Chappelle cvalls out the cancel culture crowd in part of his Sticks and Stones show that had liberals threatening to boycott the entire show.
