stop calling a failed bank 'woke,' you sound like an ignorant fucking loser
there's nothing woke about catering to toxic tech bros, and you know it
you knew it was coming, didn’t you.
the regressive dipshits who can’t stop calling everything they don’t like “woke” are now blaming the failure of the Silicon Valley Bank on … wokeness.
as you know, woke is “the belief there are systemic injustices in American society and the need to address them.”
and that’s not me saying that. that’s a direct quote from Ryan Newman, Ron DeSantis’s general counsel. to them, that’s a bad thing. a just society is what they’re afraid of.
frankly, it would be totally fucking awesome if the Silicon Valley Bank believed that “there are systemic injustices in American society” and worked “to address them.”
but trust me, SVB didn’t.
SVB catered to tech bros, the most toxic, misogynistic and racist segment of society outside of smalltown southern sheriffs.
but SVB failed, and the wingnut outrage-industrial complex certainly isn’t going to put the blame where it belongs:
so they have to blame it on wokeness. because of course they have to.
everything bad that happens, anything they don’t like, anything that moves them out of their comfort zone, anything that scares the living fuck out of them, they call woke. they even called the US Army woke.
(wouldn’t you love to see Ted Cruz say that to a soldier’s face?)
but there’s happy news. in the end, these fools are just second amendmenting the fuck out of themselves straight into both feet.
Fifty-six percent of Americans say “wokeness” encompasses being informed, educated on, and aware of social injustices.
hey, a huge THANK YOU to everyone who participated in yesterday’s open chat. unfortunately I had a social obligation yesterday afternoon and didn't have the time reply to everyone, but I did read every one of your comments and I got a LOT out of it. we'll do this again!
