Podcast host and MMA announcer Joe Rogan said something very poignant during a recent episode of “The Joe Rogan Experience” in which he predicted that if woke culture continues to have its way, then it’ll get to a point where straight white males won’t be able to do anything from speak to even go outside.
Rogan reasserted that you can “never be woke enough” for the woke crowd and that there are people really taking advantage of the fact that our culture has become so bizarre:
“You can never be woke enough, that’s the problem, it keeps going, it keeps going further and further and further down the line. And if you get to the point where you capitulate where you agree to all these demands, it will eventually get to straight white men are not allowed to talk. Because it’s your privilege to express yourself when other people of color have been silenced throughout history. It will be you’re not allowed to go outside because so many people were imprisoned for so many years. I mean, I’m not joking, it really will get there. It’s that crazy. You know, we just got to be nice to each other, man. And there’s a lot of people that are taking advantage of this weirdness in our culture, and then that becomes their thing. Their thing is calling people out for their privilege, calling people out for their position. You know, it’s so f***ing crazy times.”
Thing is, the “woke culture” that is currently having its heyday in the west is far more than just an attack on straight white men, it’s an attack on our entire society.
Straight white men were just an easy target by way of introducing various divisive concepts. “They’re the patriarchy and they’ve been keeping women down,” they told society. “They’re white and have been keeping minorities down,” they said from another angle. “They’re straight and they’ve been keeping the LGBT community down” was the next move to surround them.
With these concepts fully accepted they were able to introduce more concepts, such as the victimization of various groups at the hands of this white male-created society that can only be made up for through the gift of voluntary obedience. Sacred cows were made of these victim groups making arguing with them a thought crime.
They were to be rewarded for simply being born into these victims groups. They were to be given the chance to speak first, be given grants, preferred entry into universities, and considered first for jobs in the name of “diversity.” All the while, they get to continue proclaiming themselves continued victims of our society, and as such, it’s the society that needs to be remade.
The remaking of society comes in the form of Marxism. Socialism and Communism are held up as perfect replacements for America’s white male capitalist system. They proclaim that only under these new Marxist systems can American truly be equal and free.
Any real student of history knows this to be absolutely untrue. There is no freedom under Marxism, and here we arrive at why Rogan’s comment, while true, is incomplete.
It won’t just be straight white males. It’ll be everyone.
In the end, once the useful idiots have completed their work, the rules developed by the new ruling class will prohibit speech that speaks out against or even merely questions it. The idea that you’ll be free to follow your dreams will be squashed in the interest of upholding a system that looks at the people under it as numbers and expendable tools.
Whether you’re black, gay, or female, it won’t matter. The man tasked with lining you up against the wall will shrug at your accusations of racism, sexism, or homophobia before he executes you.
There will be no equality. There will be no fairness. Black lives won’t matter. LGBT people will eventually be shoved into a criminal category, and women will find that they actually had equal rights all along because now they’ve been wholly stripped from them.
We know this because history has shown us this repeatedly.
We live in an age where the entirety of the world’s collective information is right at our fingertips and yet we know so little about our history as a species. We’re on the verge of making old mistakes. We’re willingly being lead by the nose in the name of ideology into fighting one another on digital platforms that control information and speech.
We’re headed into a hole we crawled out of generations before.
Yes, it’ll start with straight white men, but it’ll end with you.
