Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. The Woke Temple


On the theory of “it’s good to know your enemy,” I’ve been recommending James Lindsay’s New Discourses for those interested in gaining a deeper knowledge of the perverse world of academic Critical Race Theory and Social Justice, but realize his work and that of his collaborators can be quite dense at times, simply because the theories they are trying to explain are so bizarre and illogical sounding to sane people.

For a shorter course, I suggest the twitter account of The Woke Temple, which conveys an accurate sense of the distorted thinking these damaged people are using to inflict on our society. Woke Temple uses a lot of graphics and you may be tempted to think these are parodies but they are all sourced to the actual literature: this is really how they think.

Here’s your mini-course:





Worst of all, they don’t know the history of baseball!




An argumentative technique used over and over again by the Woke:

    Sorry. I couldn’t even get through the first three.

    Actually, not sorry.

    I think New Discourses is helpful at articulating the gulf between what we think they mean and what they think they mean. Also helpful – reading “A Conflict of Visions” by Thomas Sowell.

    Now I get it. This is basically hard-core religious literalism, like Hanbali Islamic thought. Hanbali Koranic interpretation says Allah is a spirit, and it is heretical to say Allah has a body / flesh like a man. However, there are reference to Allah’s hand in the Koran refers to Allah’s hand(s), so Allah has hands. If this is a contradiction, you are a heretic and deserve death.

    Practically, this does not exist in Christianity. Biblical literalists make room for parables and metaphor. Even your most hard-core fundamentalist does not believe that Jesus stands at a physical door and knocks, or that believers are actually sheep with wool and hooves. The closest thing I can see to this is Scientology and other fanatical cults.

    Alternative dialog

    Teacher: Jimmy you’re a racist.
    Jimmy: No I’m not. My best friend is Joe and he’s black.
    Teacher: Yes you are, Jimmy. And your denial is proof that you are and proof of your white fragility.
    Jimmy: Wait…, you’re the one!
    Teacher: The one?
    Jimmy: The one who killed Elvis!
    Teacher: No I’m not! That’s silly.
    Jimmy: Your denial is proof that you did it. Murderer!
    Teacher: No it’s not. Stop that!
    Jimmy: Your defensiveness is proof of your fragility. Murderer!
    Teacher: Look, I wasn’t even born when Elvis died.
    Jimmy: Facts, logic, and reason are tools of the oppressor. Murderer!

    Mr. C and I were just discussing how racist Critical Race Theory is. As if black people are incapable of logic and critical thinking, which makes logic and critical thinking white supremacy. Tell that to Asians and black African immigrants to America. 

    Our society is in so much trouble.
