Another great commentary from Victor Davis Hanson where he summarizes the obvious lies and charades promoted by the supporters of “wokeness”:
The woke madness coincides with an epidemic of crises that go largely ignored as a distracted America cannibalizes itself.
- The border is being breached at a time of pandemic. Migrants barge in without either COVID-19 testing or vaccinations — during a coronavirus spike that has government officials talking about going door to door to roust out American citizens to get vaccinated.
- Whiteness is supposedly the cause of America’s problems. But our inner cities are suffering historic levels of violent crime. Couldn’t our critical race theory accusers take time out from their merchandising to address the soaring violence?
- The Biden administration denies that huge deficit spending and generous cash payments to workers fueled inflation. But America hasn’t seen anything like the current price hikes and labor shortages in the last 40 years.
- The military, CIA and FBI have lost the confidence of the public — and not just because of their woke politicking. They are perceived as distracted and ignoring their primary missions of winning wars, catching terrorists before they strike, and offering superb intelligence about our enemies.
