People Are Seeing Through Holes In Woke Ideology: Critical Theory Expert. Masooma Haq and Jan Jekielek via The Epoch Times — “woke ideology will destroy itself because it is not grounded in truth, but rather seeks power.” – “People sometimes say to me, ‘You didn’t use to make fun of the left as much.’ Yeah, because they didn’t give me so much to work with,” Maher said during a January 2022 episode” — “The truth of those questions is thrown away because [they] don’t care about the truth. It’s expressions of power to control people, and that’s how they view everything. So, you always end up with this endless back and forth, where people are arguing about ‘Well, who benefits?’” – “When the Soviet Union came down, it didn’t crumble because of bombs and guns,” he said. “It collapsed under the weight of the lies that were propping it up.”

An Injustice Worse than the Plight of George Floyd. Jeffrey Folks — “The names of Terry Aultman and Brenda Aultman are not well known, but they should be, more so than that of George Floyd. – For once, maybe the national media could play fair and report honestly about a black-on-white murder, but they won’t.”

The Reason Islam’s So Keen on Hating Us. Raymond Ibrahim — “In short, jihad — or terrorism, war on non-Muslims for no less a reason than that they are non-Muslims — is simply the physical realization of an ignored doctrine that precedes it: Islam’s unequivocal command for Muslims to hate non-Muslims.”
