Fox News host Steve Hilton took a deep dive into how corporations in America have made wokeism the “new religion,” as the ‘The Next Revolution‘ host broke down how far-left policies have failed to enact positive change in the country.
Noting that it’s been a year since the death of George Floyd, Hilton said the ensuing “revolution” that ushered in the defund the police movement also brought about the collapse of police morale and empowered criminals, resulting in a surge of violent crime all across the country.
In Minneapolis alone, there has been a 250% increase in gunshot victims, he said, asking rhetorically who has been hurt the most. The right answer, of course, being minority communities.
Hilton said even Democrats, “who a year ago pandered to defund the police activists are coming to their senses and reversing the reckless, dangerous, undermining of the police.”
“But there is another consequence of the protests a year ago — it could be even more destructive,” he said. “The protest helped advance a cause that has been trying for 100 years to occupy the commanding heights of American life. That cause is wokeism, which in the space of just 12 months has become the new religion, not just of the left but of our corrupt and decadent establishment too.”

“You see it in the woke corporations cravenly mouthing BLM propaganda,” Hilton said, holdup McDonald’s, Lockheed Martin and Coca-Cola as examples — he said the soft drink giant “took time out from their main mission of destroying black people’s health to spread lies and misinformation about voting reforms.”
“You see it in the total capitulation of the Democratic Party to the woke agenda,” he continued. “Democrats fighting to end policing, abolish the Department of Homeland security, destroy girls’ sports, manipulating our language to push their divisive woke narrative.”
Referencing the aforementioned 100-year span, Hilton explained what we see playing out is Marxism, to include critical race theory teachings, which was designed to break down family, religion and culture.
“’Woke-ism’ is not some benign soft attempt to promote peace and harmony – it’s the exact opposite,” he said. “As we’ve explained, it is the product of a 100-year long effort to undermine and tear down the values and ideals and freedoms that this country was built on.”
“This is what these useful idiots in corporate America, the Democratic Party and the media are embracing,” Hilton explained. “They have become the pathetic stooges of our number one domestic threat, the real enemy within.”
In effect, the left is exploiting racial injustice in America, which Hilton suggests is a real problem as he highlighted the wealth disparity between black and white Americans, along with other differences.
“What is the real explanation for all this?” he asked. “The most pervasive cause of racial injustice in America is not racist white people, it is the policies of the Democrats that incentivize single parenthood, lock kids in schools that fail to give them a decent education, policies that destroy community jobs.”
“So, what is the best, most positive, most practical solution?” Hilton continued. “Not the shallow virtue signaling of woke CEOs or guilty white allies but conservative ideas like stable families, school choice, homeownership and the kind of criminal justice reform led by President Trump.”
The approach must include policy and culture, the Fox News host explained.
“If black lives really mattered to the Democrats they would back these kinds of reforms, but they don’t and they block them,” he said. “If black lives really mattered to the woke CEOs and the media and the activists, they’d use their platforms to promote a culture of achievement and success.”
“We can teach this, promote this, put money behind the message; finish high school, get a job, get married. That’s what we need in this country, not the nihilistic, divisive, anti-American poison of ‘woke-ism,’ which paints every black person as a victim and every white person an oppressor.”
A fight conservatives should lead, he finished.
