Dave Scott: The woke mob celebrates appropriation

Op-ed views and opinions expressed are solely those of the author.

Remember when kids were scolded by loony left-wing extremists for wearing sombreros on Halloween, telling them it was a form of demeaning appropriation? They said the same about white restauranters who sold tacos and burritos. 

Don’t even think of wearing black face unless you’re the Prime Minister of Canada (Justin Trudeau) or a Democrat Governor of Virginia (Dr. Ralph Northam). That’ll get you branded a dim-witted dangerous racist bigot unless you’re a member of the Left’s woke crowd.

However, female impersonators, the largest category of appropriation offenders are applauded by the woke mob. Males, who are normally labeled as oppressors, not only mock women but are celebrated by the Left as they perform an overtly demeaning form of appropriation. They are even encouraged to perform their vulgar raunchiness for young children at local schools and libraries.

In Dallas earlier this month elementary age school children attended what was billed as a “family friendly” event at a gay night club to celebrate Pride Month. At the same time a number of  U.S. school districts were hosting drag queen story times for elementary school kids.

Isn’t exaggerating feminine characteristics to absurd comic effect just like blackface? And why are young children being exposed to drag queens performing in a sexually suggestive manner that is totally inappropriate? 

At the Dallas club a neon sign saying “It won’t lick itself” was lit up in bright colors while 10-year-old kids were encouraged to stick dollar bills in the garter belts of the female impersonators. “Having  a family friendly event at a gay club is like having a family friendly wine tasting at a winery with wine in juice boxes for kids,” reported the Fort Worth Star Telegram. 

Where are the woke cultural warriors protesting this buzzsaw of  appropriation BS? And what were the parents of these children thinking by permitting their kids to attend such raunchy and offensive exhibitions? 

Many parents are successfully fighting back against permissive pudding-headed school boards, teachers unions and progressive programs that encourage and condone this rubbish.

Incumbents are losing their seats at twice the historic average according to Ballotpedia which analyzed recent school board elections in several states.

Alert parents are revolting over these disgusting practices and how their districts manage race and gender issues. 

One third of all school board incumbents in three states lost re-election bids says Ballotpedia. Voter recalls have also soared says the organization. The momentum is there, and it shows no signs of slowing down. 

Florida is fortunate to have a governor who is not afraid to fight this garbage and its woke supporters. He sent Disney’s mouse limping back to its California corporate headquarters with a black eye and a lot poorer than he was before he attempted to tell Governor Ron DeSantis how to run the state’s schools, with age-inappropriate bunkum. 

In a recent campaign email DeSantis said: “The woke mob will go after the family unit, parental rights, traditional moral values, the church, and fact-based education.”

Disney’s mismanagement of the situation and its underestimation of Governor DeSantis sent its stock tumbling, put its PR Department into overdrive, cost it hundreds of millions in state taxes, and gave it a public drubbing that will take it a long time to recover from. Disney learned the hard way not to mess with no-nonsense Governor DeSantis and Florida’s parents who aren’t interested in having their kids celebrate Pater Pansexual or Snow White and the Seven Genders. 

State Farm Insurance is another company that learned that you don’t mess with Florida’s school children. The company is no longer viewed a “a good neighbor” but a “creepy one” in the Sunshine state and has a lot less Florida customers after its Illinois HQ instructed its Florida agents to sneak age-inappropriate books into local schools and libraries. 

The LGBTQA/whatever movement appears to have replaced the rebellious young adults who used to dye their hair green or blue, get facial tattoos or piercings and wear outrageous clothing. Today they’re identifying their “uniqueness” with sexual identities, including genders that don’t and won’t ever exist. 

It’s all a bizarre and dangerous social trend that was initiated by the Left’s woke mob and could have serious long-term physical and mental consequences for many young children of misguided progressive parents. 

If kids actually knew what they wanted to be at age seven America would be overrun with cowboys and princesses. “I wanted to be a pirate,” says comedian Rickey Gervais. “Thank God nobody took me seriously and scheduled me for eye removal or peg-leg surgery.”
