16 things that are unexpectedly woke

Woke Disney is hypnotizing your children!

“Woke” remains one of the right’s favorite buzzwords. It means everything and nothing and can be used to describe anything.

So I thought I’d take another one of my periodic look-sees at some things that are being defined as “woke” these days by right wing twitterers.

People complaining about dangerously hot weather:

Home Depot:

Most brands of seasoning:

Democrats, who are also socialists, despite all the evidence to the contrary.

People who want kids in public schools to learn anything other than science and math.

Whoever you want harassed for being too darn liberal:

The armed forces, which might be planning on shooting you if you’re not woke too:

People who might want to milk bulls for some reason:

Disney:

The new Lord of the Rings TV series from Disney+:

Giant corporations:

Giant gay corporations:

People who produce comics that are “woke sjw feminist bullshit.”

People who insert “woke sjw bullcrap” into movies and TV.

People who call Darth Vader sexist, because apparently there’s some kind of debate going on about this:

And finally, speaking of Star Wars:

Unfortunately, thinking is also woke.

Believes in “the marketplace of ideas”, until a thought they dont like becomes marketable.

Then it’s ‘economic authoritarianism’, and nothing will convince them otherwise.
This double-standard being so prevalent is proof that an idea doesn’t have to be universally popular to be profitable within a bubble.

This is why I never liked the idea of a marketplace for ideas.

Completely O/T; but I’ve just heard something I find bewildering; and I just had to tell people as it’s doing my head in.

I’m listening to the sentence hearing for the Parkland shooter.

A teacher is just giving evidence about the day.

It transpires that they had had active shooter training during the holidays. As part of that they were notified that there would at some stage be an unannounced active shooter drill. They had been told those often begin with the training provider firing blanks or letting off pyrotechnics.

So initially they thought that must be want was happening.

But the thing I’m trying to process is that, not only do kids have to train for these events, which must be traumatic enough; every now and then they are subjected to a drill, with no warning, that is specifically designed to convincingly replicate the real thing.

I mean, I totally get the utility of this; but the psychological cost must be enormous.

Imagine if on aeroplanes they sometimes just went into a nosedive.

@Nequam: I have some Penzey’s that I was given recently, and I like them. That page makes me like them even more.

@FMOx: It’s more properly “koshering salt”. And agreed on Mary and Jesus — who they claim to respect and love — spending their whole lives doing Jewish things Jewishly with other Jews. And I’m no expert, but pure minerals and clean veggies don’t fall under the kosher rule, just animals and animal products. Vegetarian Jews don’t gotta worry.

It’s more properly “koshering salt”

There was a bizarre case here on that.

Basically two Jewish guys did business together. They had a sort of faux bickering relationship. One guy complained about the late payment of a debt. So other guy sent him the cash in an envelope. But he put some koshering salt in there as a joke on how long it had been owing (i.e. that it had needed preserving).

All well and good; til the envelope burst in the Post Office; the same week two post office workers had died from anthrax in the mail.

Got prosecuted; but in the end the House of Lords said you can’t convict someone for a joke; no matter how lame it was.

For a while, there was a hoax on wikipedia, which claimed that Martin Luther refused to ever eat kosher food, on the grounds that the Jews were responsible for his frequent bouts of diarrhea. The claim later made it into a scholarly work on Luther. My thought was that gastrointestinal distress would be the least of results from refusing to eat fruits or vegetables ever or salt too, I guess.

Oh, it gets even better: right there in the classroom is often the Boojum, being oriented in protocol and where the hiding places are and the fact that there’s going to be a surprise drill.

To be honest, the Amazon LotR series probably won’t be very good. Not because of wokeness though.

I’m legitimately confused. Which seasonings are “woke” and have pronouns? I don’t think I’ve ever seen a “woke” seasoning with pronouns.

Do not tell me such things!

epitome of incomprehensibility

@Alan – About school drills – we had unexpected fire drills, at least in high school. But we quickly picked up that there wasn’t a real fire because the teachers weren’t panicking. So I imagine the shooting drills aren’t too traumatizing in most cases, but the fact that they’re needed is sad in itself.

OT, but I hope you’re dealing with the heat wave in England OK! It’s only 30C here but the humidity is friggin 60%, so it feels like a sauna outside. Then again, Montreal is known for weather extremes (colder winters as well) but the infrastructure in the UK isn’t built for this kind of heat, at least from what I read.

I remember when I was in my early teens our local nuclear attack alarm went off in the early hours of the morning. This was the height of the Cold War. But the weird thing is I remember just being stood there with my mum and dad. It was a sort of ‘is this real?’ situation; but everyone was surprisingly calm. Chatting to friends the next day, it seems that had been the common reaction. Maybe our brains just go into some sort of denial mode in such circumstances?

And yes, the heat here. One fact I found fascinating is that yesterday we had an additional nine miles of railway; because of the expansion of the tracks.

Having said that, in Cornwall we just had a massive thunderstorm and then it was quite pleasant. A bit chilly even. But Cornwall is famous for alway having the weather the rest of the country wants.

Most likely, it’s because the decision flowchart looks something like this:

                             ,--No---> Business as usual
                             |
                             |
              ,--No--Panic? -{
              |              |
              |              |
              |              '--Yes--> Miss important deadline
              |
              |
Real attack? -{
              |
              |
              |              ,--No---> Get vaporized
              |              |
              |              |
              '--Yes-Panic? -{
                             |
                             |
                             '--Yes--> Get vaporized

The only good outcome is if it’s not a real attack and you don’t panic, and the only one of those under your control is if you don’t panic.

@Alan: The nuclear defense siren in our neighborhood went off a few times when I was a smol noob, but we ignored it. We lived so close to major military installations most of the time (Dad was an Army man) that we knew it was useless to head to a shelter. Particularly when we lived in sight of Cheyenne Mountain.

Later, the sirens were allowed a different noise for tornado warnings, which they were extremely useful for, because you can survive them. (Also, they were when thunderclouds appeared.) We had a basement. The old fallout shelters in buildings were useful for hiding from tornadoes, too, which we did when not home. I expect Tornado Alley still uses them for that; being in the reinforced basement of an old stone or brick building is about as safe as you can be.

However, even though I’m old enough to remember all this, I do not remember any seasonings having pronouns, “woke” or not. English doesn’t use gendered pronouns for inanimate household objects. I suppose other languages might, but anyone who’d buy FRAG OUT MACHO MANLY MAN SEASONING probably doesn’t know any other languages.

Comparing a thinking, feeling person’s decisions about their own identity to livestock bred and raised to feed us is utterly baffling

One reason for logo homogeneity is that people are looking at logos on smaller and smaller screens, You need something that can’t vanish between the diagonals between nearly microscopic pixels.
