The reason why so many extremely woke people turn out to have been bigoted in the past is because bigotry used to be the best way to bully and intimidate people, but now performative anti-bigotry is the best way to bully and intimidate people. An evolving toolset for sociopaths.

Not really a Christian but I’m surprised nobody comments on a striking parallel in the gospels. Jesus actually spent a lot of time pointing out that often the shittiest people inside are the ones who most love to get on other people’s case about their moral failings.

I've been referring to woke scolds as neo-pharisees for a while now.

I hope it’s more the zeal of the convert. Or the recently recovered alcoholic who only talks about the program. It may be too optimistic of me, but I think most folks will calm down and then we can all be productive together.

Being “woke” is just another kind of bigotry. Both are about trying to force your morality onto other people while asking your peer group to back you up. True tolerance means acknowledging differing morality and trying to work towards a common base with empathy and reason.

So we should tolerate nazis? Or try to make equivalence between intolerance towards nazis and intolerance towards Jews, for example? True tolerance would require to respect the traditions of cannibals, do you call idea that eating people is bad bigotry?

I do feel like many of these types are really awkward & lonely people in real life with too much time on their hands. They have just figured out a socially acceptable way to bully people that they dislike because “pick a reason”: Envy. Covetousness. Greed.

There's a reason why so many have extremely vibrant hair dyes: seeking attention everywhere they go.

I don't know, violent takeover of the capitol and attempted murder and kidnapping of government officials are pretty intimidating still.
