Dave Scott: Meet the Woke Islanders

Meet the Woke Islanders, angry finger-wagging hypocritical scolds dictating what they decree others should be allowed to read, say, and do, while they do the opposite.

Don’t confuse Woke Islanders with Wake Islanders, folks who live on one of the most remote and isolated islands in the world in the Pacific Ocean. Their nearest inhabited island is 600 miles away.

Woke Islanders live on a mentally remote atoll shrouded in a dense fog resistant to penetration by logic, reasoning, and humor. Rational thought is nowhere on the horizon.

They’re a sullen, meanspirited crowd that pit black against white, old against young, rich against poor, and think the rest of the country is inhabited by small-minded, ignorant bigots.

Their hypocrisy and intolerance for those that don’t think as they do is stupefying. Their futile attempts to respond to a factually accurate statement consists of shouting their standard go-to talking point of: “YEH! Well, Oh YEH”!

Woke Islanders also eat their own. They recently attacked liberal HBO comedian Bill Maher when he said: “How bad does this atmosphere we’re living in have to get before the people who say cancel culture is overblown admit that it is in fact an insanity that is swallowing up the world?” He later went on to add: “I must say of all violations of the woke penal code, cultural appropriation just might be the dumbest of all.” The woke Twitter crowd viciously attacked him for his comments.

Woke Islanders don’t believe in what they’re saying. They don’t have a logical defensible position on anything.

They claim that a $5.5 trillion spending bill will stop inflation, when history shows that it does the exact opposite. They say vaccinations prevent Covid, then a day later say they don’t. They conduct a Congressional hearing on unarmed protestors that broke into the U.S. Capitol while ignoring riots across the country involving murder, arson, and looting. They use tax money to hire armed security details for themselves while demanding police departments in crime-riddled cities be defunded and staffed by social workers. They install prosecutors who don’t prosecute, discard bail, and overlook theft of less than $1,000. They ignore the hundreds of thousands of unskilled Covid-infected aliens illegally pouring into the country on the southern border they dismantled. Yet they block the northern border preventing vaccinated, law-abiding, skilled Canadians from entering. In the midst of a national crime wave they say that there are too many people incarcerated so we need fewer jails. They shout “Black Lives Matter” but ignore the fact that 50 percent of the homicides in the U.S. are committed by the 3 percent of the population that is black and that most of their victims are black. They embarrass themselves, offend their fans, and disrespect the country by kneeling during the American national anthem at sporting events but can’t explain why they do it. They think there are more than two genders and that men can get pregnant and menstruate. They prohibit pipelines, fracking and drilling that made the U.S. energy independent then encourage OPEC to produce more while gasoline prices in the U.S. skyrocket. They say it’s burdensome for black’s to prove their identity in order to vote but can’t explain how. While Americans are struggling to pay soaring gas, food, energy, and housing prices they are being harangued for their “white privilege” by an array of well-paid Woke Island academics, media elite and CEOs.

Woke Islanders are the Wile E. Cayotes of politics, civics, and economics, unable to snatch even a whiff of a winning argument. They repeatedly accept the Acme Company’s (a.k.a. The Democrat Party) talking points and express surprise as they continuously and predictably blow up in their faces.

A recent example is the New York Times, which dismissed the reality that 76 percent of black kids are raised by single mothers, by editorializing that “Black kids need fathers less than other kids.”

What’s next?  Black kids need education less than other kids? Black kids need discipline less than other kids? Black kids need guns more than other kids?

We’re supposed to believe these people when they tell us that a father and son never talked on long flights home from Ukraine and China about the multi-million dollar deals that Hunter – whose only expertise involved illegal drugs and hookers – managed to land with an energy company and a private equity firm? We are to believe that blowing paint onto canvas through a straw is artwork that experts are bidding on for $500,000 per canvas?

They say that if you are an illiterate illegal alien with Covid, you can enter the US and get transported at tax payer expense wherever you want and receive a variety of welfare benefits. But if you are a U.S. citizen and you dare enter the House side of the Capitol with no mask, even if vaccinated and free of Covid, you will get arrested.

Like the aliens in the old sci-fi film “Invasion of the Body Snatchers” Woke Islanders have the physical appearances of conventional residents, however, they lack all introspective human reasoning capabilities, behaviors, and emotions.

For example, the Woke Island President has a brain that short circuits. He can’t string together a coherent sentence and his train of thought habitually jumps the rails.

You can spot these self-appointed, chin-jutting, finger wagging, cultural police at grocery stores wearing, one, two, or maybe three masks and even a plastic shield. They glare over their numerous suffocating facial coverings with contempt at your naked vaccinated face.

In the store’s parking lot, their little electric car is the one with the fading Obama, Clinton, Sanders, and Biden bumper stickers.

They are ridiculous. When you think they can’t get more absurd they prove you wrong. Only when the majority of Americans make them the laughing stock they so richly deserve to be can we start getting back to normal.
