An example of woke on the political right. Yes, it exists.
When you cover up for monsters on your own side, you don't have a leg to stand on in fighting the left.

I define woke as authoritarian.
And all authoritarianism is bad.
Authoritarianism is not exclusive to the woke political left: It also exists on the woke political right.
I spend the vast majority of my time discussing the woke political left because they are the most dangerous - they control all the major institutions.
But make no mistake, that doesn’t mean I think we should ignore the woke political right. There has been a second moral majority building since right after Joe Biden took office and they are gaining more power every day.
Mostly, that’s because the political right doesn’t know how to do anything but react to the woke political left, and so it forces the pendulum to swing to the strongest extreme in the opposite direction. I firmly believe we are seeing another satanic panic on the woke political right, and Christian nationalist is at the center of it.
When the woke right rears its ugly head, it’s important that we acknowledge it.
I left the Democratic party after 20 years because I woke up to what my party had become when influenced by a vocal minority.
If you want to know why there’s not more people like me who wake up to what their own side is doing, consider this: People on the political right often refuse to admit woke exists on their own side, even when you put the evidence right in front of their faces.
Let me show you what woke on the political right looks like.
Woke on the right is obvious to me.
I see it in the white identitarians.
I see it every time I go on Gab for a brief moment and see something like this. They posted this screenshot of me just a few days ago. Someone took the time to make this, to photoshop that onto my headshot. And it’s what I see when I go on that website. I’m not Jewish. They call me that as an insult.
Want to see some more examples of things I’ve seen on Gab? I once documented just a bit of it on my Substack The Red Pill Diaries:
Don’t ever tell me the right is better than the left, and don’t deny these people are on the right. If you can’t see what’s on your own side, you are no better than the Democrats who refuse to see what is on theirs.
One step below the identitarians are the Christian Nationalists. You’ll not only find them on Gab, but in also on places like Nick Fuentes Cozy.tv. These are mostly younger white men who are the classic incel stereotype and don’t act at all Christian.
And those people have been all over Ted Cruz’s Twitter feed for the last few days.
Here’s what happened:
Ted Cruz posted that he doesn’t believe in laws criminalizing homosexuality.
Here’s what Cruz was responding to:
Now, I can already hear the objections from conservatives. They will say that aggravated homosexuality is rape and that there should be the death penalty to it.
That’s a fair criticism.
That’s not what most of the comments were responding to and it is gaslighting to claim it was. And the conservatives using it as a deflection are willfully ignoring the woke in their midst.
Let me show you the replies from the good Christian Nationalists and you can tell me whether or not you think this looks woke:
And then there was one step down from the Christian Nationalists: Conservatives who really didn’t want Ted Cruz to support the gays, but who also had the good sense to not say anything overtly homophobic.
The talking point they selected was, “we shouldn’t be commenting on any other country’s business.” Another one was “how dare he hashtag #LGBTQ.” That seemed to be the line the commentators at The Blaze took.
Of course, if they agreed with the comment Cruz made, they would have said nothing. This was a backhanded way to criticize, like when a southern woman says “bless your heart.” Some of these people are influencers who literally comment on what other countries are doing every day.
I think I’ve made my point.
There are thousands of replies like what you’ve seen here - not one or two.
Don’t tell me woke on the right doesn’t exist.
And it wants to tell adults what to do with their bodies.
You don’t have a leg to stand on in fighting back against the woke left when you make yourself look like the gay haters they say you are.
These behaviors win nothing, accomplish nothing, and only send people who would otherwise join your team to the open arms of the woke left.
If you’re not better than them, you don’t deserve to win.
What do you think?
Are you comfortable with what you saw here? Let me know.
Fight back against the woke and support my work.
I believe the woke - on the left and the right - are an existential threat to our values as Americans. Some of them know it, most of them are just useful innocents. Regardless, fighting back against this woke cultural revolution is my full-time job. I’m dedicated to exposing the woke ideology in our country, helping people to understand what’s going on, and providing spaces for non-woke people to connect, support each other, and plan ways to fight back.
Here’s how you can help.
