We can see on the horizon that “woke” is about to be made toxic, such as the words “groomer” and “parents’ rights” have become shorthand in the media for “far-right wing.” The Left didn’t like the “groomers” label because it hit a nerve and it stuck; even some conservatives declared the word off-limits as anti-LGBTQ. Now presidential candidate Ron DeSantis is in the spotlight, and he’s famous for saying that Florida is “where woke goes to die.” That’s resonating with a lot of people, and so Democrats have to attach the stigma of white supremacy to it.
Rep. Cori Bush, who recently floated the number $14 trillion for reparations (just take it out of the defense budget), is doing her part by claiming that the war on woke is “rooted in anti-Blackness.”
As Democrats, we’ve got to push back on the GOP’s “war on woke.” We know it’s rooted in anti-Blackness. We cannot sit idly by as these folks get in front of cameras and yell “woke” at everything.
It’s our communities that the GOP is targeting. We have to stand up for us.

Sorry we stole your word.

Oh, give us a break. Not everything is about your fake victimhood narrative.
But never stop being a crazy extremist, leading the MO Dems to even further isolation from mainstream Missourians.

It’s actually rooted in anti-Marxism

It’s true. If you looked at the Black Lives Matter manifesto, it was essentially the Communist Manifesto rewritten to replace class with race. It was no secret either, as the movement’s co-founders admitted to being “trained Marxists.”
Your claims are unvalidated

Y'all can keep peddling this lie, but everyone knows modern wokeness has nothing to do with blackness

It’s not Cori. At its core, for most people, the war on woke is about things that most of us agree on. There are extremists as there always are but the war on woke isn’t an unreasonable one.
Folks believe in winners and losers. Folks don’t want their children to attend pride

It's anti communist.
Skin color has nothing to do with it.

DeSantis’ “war on woke” has obviously hit a nerve and Democrats like Bush know they need to freeze it in its tracks. And since their only play is racism, they’ll insist “woke” is a racial slur.

The very talked about leather gator jacket Casey DeSantis wore in Iowa, is apparently racist according to one Florida author. This is a real tweet.https://t.co/ubnBgBtT7S
